Ask the Q, What do I do? My husband doesn't like my coffee. Ai Just for review, the coffee maker's pledge: "A clean pot, fresh cold water from the tap, accurate measurements." Now, the next question—are you using hard or soft water? It's surprisin j how soft ^BHBM |jlB» water, with the minera.., removed, UB" ''"•"•n™ can enhance the taste of coffee. Likewise many other water-based beverages. A small price to pay to keep a husband happy. Q, How much soap is needed for washing clothes in soft water? 4 A. i Here's where the savings really i show! If with hard water you use one full cup of soap or detergent per washer load, with soft water you can cut down to a scant coffee ^measure full. It isn't easy to break old soap habits at first, but experience will show that this small amount does it in most cases. Soft water not only pays its own way by cutting soap costs, but it leaves clothes soft, fluffy and comfortable—because they're free of soap curd. And, with less pollution going down the drain, think what you're doing for ecology! Q, Does it matter how often I shampoo my hair each week? At Not if the conditions are right. If you wash and rinse your hair in soft water, you can shampoo daily if you like—and safely. The recommended treatment isj soft water and a mild nonalcoholic soap shampoo which won't dry out the hair and scalp. If you pay to have your hair done, be sure the beautician is using softened water. Ask the Lindsay Lady yourself. You'll find her at your nearby Lindsay dealer...

The flat, larger, lighter-colored band is the area on which the sun's shadow is cast and the time is indicated. North Dakota Eye Catcher* By JAMES F. PENWARDEN Two more eye-catchers—of a non-coed nature—have been added to the campus of the University of North Dakota at Grand Forks. The latest additions are a 64-inch high sundial and a modern, lighted footbridge spanning the scenic English Coulee on the west edge of the campus. They join the Old Main Memorial Sphere as campus conversation pieces. The Old Main Memorial Sphere, on the site of Old Main, UND's first building, has stood since November of 1963. A gas-fed flame burns within the Sphere as a symbol of the eternal light of knowledge and truth. The Sphere, laced with twenty-nine figures of educational development, is seven feet in diameter and stands sixteen feet in the air. The new Fox Memorial Bridge was erected to provide a Coulee crossing, lacking since a 22-year-old wooden structure was pulled down in January of 1963. The new bridge was dedicated during June and is named in memory of the late Alice C. Fox, wife of E. F. Fox of Billings, Mont., who donated $15,000 to cover the cost of the bridge. The 72-foot span is constructed of white pre-stressed concrete and a double-T beam and has handrails, upon which are globe lights bordering each side of the bridge. No ordinary sundial, the new UND Sundial differs from the usual flat- surfaced type in that the UND "time-piece" consists of rings and circles forming an armillary sphere. A special structure on the sphere enables those who have that talent to discern the month of the year. The sundial, a gift from the Robert D. Campbell Foundation, established in honor of long-time Grand Forks physician Robert Campbell, was designed by A. Turler and Company of Zurich, Switzerland. It is composed of brass and iron and weighs 500 pounds. It has been permanently mounted on a concrete base at the south edge of the campus mall. Campus guests find the Old Main Memorial Sphere at the University of North Dakota an intriguing item. The Sphere was erected on the site of UND's first structure, Old Main administration building. Enhancing the beauty of the English Coulee —as well as providing a convenient crossing—is the new Fox Memorial Bridge at the University of North Dakota. The new bridge replaced a 23-year-old condemned wooden structure which was removed in 1963.
