The tv/o, Amber and Midnight, not only share each other's families without any trace of maternal jealousy but they share the same basket. Both now have their third families. Amber gave birth to her three kittens in the basket on the back porch of the Smith home, while Midnight-brought her three young Into the world outdoors, and remained very secretive about their, whereabouts for several days. Apparently Influenced by heavy and continuous rains. Midnight appeared at the back door with one of her offspring. When'she was let into the house, she stood by ob- servingly to see how the kitten would be received. When Amber began drying the kitten, Midnight affectionately washed Amber's face in appreciation, and made a second and then a third trip, to place her entire family in the basket. Both young mothers seem contented to share the basket, and ellhEr will tend and nurse all six of the kittens, who will undoubtedly have trouble deciding which to call "mama" as they get older.

NUori is Iving, worldwide proof tlut you lon't have to be a millionaire o make the "ten best dressed" lists. In. fact, you don\ even have to wear tailor-mide suits - from Bond Street or wherever to achieve the select list, even In clothes-conscious British circles. If you're lucky like Nixon, with fairly regular proportions, you can order them "off the rack" with only slight alterations. The neatly-garbed vice president shrugged off his recent selection for the world's 10 best- dressed men by "Tailor and Cutter" magazine; Britain's bible of male fashions. Ho doesn't wear $250 tailor- made . .outfits, he explained. In fade,., he said, moat of them aren't "Tailor made" in the ordinary sense at all. . ' Nixon says most of Us suits are ready-made in the $75 to $125 retail range, with maybe an occasional $150 number. The Vice-President'* dimensions-six feet and about ITS pounds-have' -changed hardly at all since he took over the number two office In January, 1953. He orders from samples and the selected suits- are altered to a.' : ' :" Nixon goes mainly for simple styles. He Isn't much of a fancy, dan' in'either colors or lines. "Tailor and Cutter" said Nixon earned his place on the 'Ten Best" list because "he Finds, a neat line between the wigwam -shapes of "the U. S. drapes and the ludicriously tight togs of the U. S. Ivy leaguers." . Nixon began wearing vests a few years ago. He says they're comfortable and practical. He ignores suggestions by same critics that he donned them to make his 46-year-old appearance seem older. The vice president's tastes in colors are conservative. He leans heavily .toward blfie*. grays and browns with subdued patterns or none at all. His tles-which wife Pat has a big hand in pIcking-usuaUy blend or match. He spurns large figures. And his shirts are almost Invariably •solids-whites or light blues, tans or greys. Nixon rarely turns up at work in sports clothes. Sometimes on wintertime Saturdays he may don slacks and a grey tweed sports coat. 'But for public appearances it's always a conservative suit. The vice president supports his wardrobe on an income that wouldn't seem large to most "best dressed" celebrities. His salary as vice president is. $35,000 a year;_plus a. jax~ free expense allowance'"of $10,000. ..•.;-.. His net takehomepay, after att deductions, totals slightly more than $26.000 a year. The expense allowance goes for offi- . dal entertalnina and such. AMBER, LEFT, MIDNIGHT, RIGHT, 3XARE FAMILIES WITHOUT There'i Ho Baby Silling Problem 'or Either Of These Braioris FtUfiii- Boat House Bulletins How's your outboard refueling tecnique? A mark of the expert out- boarder, state outboard authorities, is his quick, certain, safe refueling procedure. • The best plan by far, for all boats liavingporublefuel tanks, is to take them out of the boat for filling. K is easier for the dock or service 'station attendant to add exactly the right amount of oil and to avoid overfilling when be has the tank right at his feet. It avoids messy and potentially hazardous spillage of fuel into the bilges. 1 Gasoline vapor is heavierthan j air and will collect in thelower levels of any confined space — such as inside a boat hull.- Open outboards are usually wellven- . dialed, but. in some cases floor| boards or bow lockers delay the dissipation of vapors long enough to create some fire lazard. It Is important to mix oil and gasoline thoroughly. If lubricant is poorly mixed with the jas, erratic running and poor lubrication may result. There bave been cases where erratic motor operation, suggestive of the need for carburetor adjustment, has been traced to owner carelessness in theraat- ter of maintaining 9 steady oil-gas ratio from one batch of fuel to the next. To an empty tank, add the required amount of oil and approximately the same volume of gasoline. Slosbarouudtomix thoroughly. Then add the remainder of the gas. Too little oil creates a risk of mechanical damage; too much oil leads to irregular, smoky running and premature sparkplug and carbon troubles. Also, smart.outboardersmake sure there is enough slack in the fuel line to allow the motor to tijt and turn without pulling on it, and that the heavy tank does not rest on a loop of hose and pinch it. Fuel tanks should be secured against shifting. One which comes loose-over rough water or on a sharp turn can damage the boat, bun a passenger, or fuel line loose. And needless to say, the "No Smoking" rule.- should be strictly observed during all re- fuelina operations I TRY FACTS DEEJAY CILT Disc Jock.y.
