Whichever method you use, certain procedures arc basic. Washing is only half the job. To protect that finish, you should give it a coat of wax. That paint job may look absolutely smooth, but it is filled with microscopic pores that are subject to damage from dirt, moisture and heat unless sealed. Waxing also saves work. Your car will ne*d a thorough scrubbing before waxing, but after waxing you can clean off road dirt V/ASHING Hit CAR P 3 BE SURE TO LET IT STAND IN THE SHADE FOR AN HOUR BEFORE STARTING with an occasional cofd water wash, When a car needs rewaxing, remove what's left of the old coat* ing with a good wash job. Soft Stream Keep your car parked in the shade for at least an hour before you start washing. The surface should be cool. Cold water on a hot surface can damage the paint. Hose down your car to remove much of the loose dust and dirt. But don't use a high pressure stream of water. 8ct the brakes before you start* The shoes pressed against the drums will keep the brake linings from getting wet, and also prevent any freak accident. From Bottom Up Always wet the car and wash it from the bottom up, NOT from the top down. Water running down over a dirty surface will cause streaks impossible to remove. • Don't allow the Water to dry in patches. Wipe off with a chamois or soft cloth. Now that it's washed, is the car clean enough to wax? Not likely. There's a layer of dead lacquer that should be removed with a beforc-waxing cleaner. Some products combine a wax and cleaner.

Many men are prejudiced about antiques until they realize an an tique is not a thing that is falling apart — a general misconception — Miss Draper says. Once you explain that a piece of furniture that has stood up 200 years must be pretty good, they begin to have respect for it. One man -who wanted modern furnishings became so impressed with a mahogany Pembroke table that it changed his entire outlook on his home. "It had that look of faded mahogany, an aged look that can't be duplicated, and he was so fascinated with the look of the w- that he wanted to learn more about old furniture," she says. One mistake made by women who furnish their homes without the assistance of an interior designer is that they misspend funds, Miss Draper explains. A woman is likely to fall in love with a lush sofa, something she has always wanted, spending $1,200, or half her entire home furnishings budget for it. "Some women run out and buy wall-to-wall carpet in a brilliant color such as violent violet, then find too late that it won't go with anything else, It is too late to do anything about it. When you take up wall-to-wall carpet, strip it and redye it, the size will change. 1 ' It is mistakes UKe these that QUALIFIED General Contractor AT THE REASONABLE PRICE YOU JOHNS-MANVIILE INSULATION Your Neighbor Sayt Call WHITE'S - 342*0185 EXTERIOR WANT TO PAY.

Don f t be too alarmed if this happens with one of your prized shade trees. It is probabla that the tree will recover, for seldom is any disease involved. General* ly, weather conditions are responsible. Usually this abnormal leaf drop occurs during hot, humid weather following a heavy rainfall. It has been suggested that the combi* nation of heat, high humidity and sudden abundance of soil moisture may induce premature growth of the absciss layer and consequent leaf drop; this layer is a group of thin-walled cells at the base of the leaf petiole which ordinarily develop late in the season and cause normal leaf fall in the autumn. An affected tree generally develops new leaf growth within a few weeks, but often these leaves are sparse and smaller than usual* The weakening effects of defoliation may be quite noticeable the following year; often the leaves are less abundant than normal and pale in color, and there is an unusual amout of dead or dying twigs and small branches. When summer leaf drop occurs it is generally wise to give the tree a light application of fertilizer immediately, the National Arborist Association advises, and a second application the following spring. The tree should be thoroughly watered during drought periods. Judicious pruning to remove dead wood and thin out the branch growth may hasten the tree's recovery. 1 * DRESSING ROOM STORAGE ETC.
