There was a time when it was easy to call someone up and pay to have any kind of repair made within a couple of days. Now they don't want to be bothered unless it's a big job. If it's something small, they say they are too busy or say they will be over in a couple of days but never show up. So this time I'm going to make an effort to fix something myself. There are several places in our blacktop driveway that need repair. Is there some easy way that a novice can fix these damaged areas? A. — Yes. You need have no skill and you can use whatever tools you have on hand. The first step in repairing a hole or whatever in blacktop is to knock out the old material to a depth of about 2 inches. If the hole already is deeper than 2 inches, then fill it in with gravel until it is about 2 inches from the top of the driveway. Be sure to remove all loose material. Now, dump into the hole a blacktop patching mix which you can buy in most hardware stores and all lumber yards and building supply establishments. If you have a regular tamper, use it to tamp the mix solidly in place. If not, use anything that will do the job — a shovel or a wide piece of board, for instance. The driveway can be used immediately, but you should check every couple of days for a while to see whether any of the patching mix has dropped a bit below the surface. If so, put on some more of the mix and tamp again. This may be a little work, but not very much, so you really have no excuse to eo/i DEAR ABBY: Why is it that nobody has any respect for children? I am 10 years old and notice it a lot, especially when I go to the market for my mother. When I try to get in line at the checkout counter, I'm always pushed aside by some adult who cuts right in front of me. My friends say this happens to them, too. Please print my letter, Abby, so adults will know how we feel. I'm pretty sure you will be on our side. NEEDS RESPECT DEAR NEEDS: I AM on your side. Adults should treat children with as much respect as they treat grownups. Besides, iii teaching children to respect others, example is the best teacher. DEAR ABBY: Six months ago I discovered that my husband was having an affair, and we've been separated ever sincta. I've filed for divorce, but until we are officially divorced, as far as I'm concerned, technically we're still married. Recently the wife of the president of my husband's firm invited him to a dinner party and told him he could bring a date. I feel the hostess was out of line to have made that offer. I have no desire to have my husband suffer undue punishment, but it's my feeling that society's ready acceptance of a person's dating while he is technically still married makes a reconciliation more difficult, and in fact encourages extramarital activities. Please comment. MIFFED IM MILWAUKEE DEAR MIFFED: "Separation" means different things to different people.

I have located the exact area of the leak and intend to fix it by sliding a piece of aluminum under the tiles at that spot. What I want to know is whether there will be any chemical reaction between the tile and the aluminum as there sometimes is between two pieces of metal? A. — No. Be sure the aluminum is kept in place with roofing cement. Q. — I'm getting ready to insulate an attic floor. I noticed in a preliminary inspection that a lighting fixture from below protrudes through the attic floor. How should I handle this? A. — To be in accord with the National Electrical Code, improvise a way of holding the insulation 3 inches away from the sides of the protrusion. Make some kind of metal shield, possibly by cutting the ends off a tin can of suitable size. Q. — I want to provide some extra ventilation in our attic now that it has been insulated. There already are two vents, one at each end in the gables. Where should I put extra vents? A. — Two more vents at the eaves are advisable, but if you want the best ventilation of all, a combination of eaves vents and continuous ridge venting is considered ideal. WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Not even the best drivers can escape the hazards of winter driving, a Purdue University safety expert cautions, but stalling, sliding and even accidents can be cut down with some preventive measures, adds Alan McDonald. The mechanical engineering professor suggests that every driver should keep a scraper in the car, along with a snow brush. He also recommends that those living in snowy regions carry chains in the trunk. Among good driving habits to develop, he advises, is, first, to judge the conditions. "Remember, just because the road crews are out doesn't mean all the roads are clear and dry. Don't forget," he adds, "that main thoroughfares are cleared first; residential streets require more caution." ' If conditions are bad, stay home if at all possible, but if you must go out, McDonald recommend staking along warm clothing, just in case you're left stranded on a lonely road. And if you haven't looked at your driving manual lately, do so, especially the section on starting the car, he advises. "Always let the car warm up three to five minutes before driving away," he says. "You're less likely to stall when the car is warm, and it prevents the vehicle from sputtering and stopping in traffic, giving the driver more 'control." Once you get moving, drive "super-defensively, and plan ahead. That is, begin to slow the car long before you come to a stop signal — adjust your speed to the conditions and give yourself a lot of leeway." ''Bad road conditions," McDonald warns, "are not always obvious. One of the worst possible conditions for a road is during the first rain or snow when it has not rained or snowed for a long time. Then all the oil and rubber that's collected on the surface suddenly floats to the top, forming a slick surface." One of the more common dangers on such surfaces is skidding, explains McDonald, who notes that one way to prepare for this frightening experience is to practice before actually driving in heavy traffic. "I hesitate to tell people to go out and practice skidding, but it's really the best way. You won't know how to react until you experience the sensation,". he says. To practice, he suggests finding a deserted area where you can try steering the car quickly from side to side — and then applying the brakes. How should you respond in a skid? The answer, he says, is to steer into the direction of the skid — and don't slam on the brakes. Pump them gently but firmly, "because slamming the brakes will lock the wheels in one position — you won't be able to steer and will lose control of the car's direction." When driving In heavy snow or rain, the engineer advises using low headlight beams so as not to get as much glare reflection. "When driving up slippery hills, maintain a steady speed and make any changes as gently as possible. But there probably will be situations in which you just can't make it," he adds. McDonald points out that bridges, even on the Interstates, are among the most dangerous places, since bridge surfaces tend to freeze much faster than other parts of the road. "And there's nothing magic about a heavy car," he emphasizes. "It's the weight distribution that counts, so don't feel you're safe just because you happe.. to have a heavier car."

Americans are being repeatedly told to stay healthy by taking extra doses of vitamins — not just the normal, prescribed amounts. That advice seems to be most frequently offered in regard to vitamin E. The passionate devotion to vitamin E may be due to the unproven belief that it is a sex vitamin. That may be so for rats. But it has not yet been shown to do anything to improve the sexual performance of humans. Even so, thousands continue to be- .lieve in its effectiveness. The Institute of Food Technologists' Expert Panel on Food Safety and Nutrition recently issued a carefully worded statement on vitamin E. Because theirs is one of the soundest and most understandable comments to date on this complex subject, we have reproduced parts of that scientific statement here: "1. There is no doubt that vitamin E is essential for normal metabolism, but since the vitamin is so prevalent in common foods, there have been very few demonstrated cases of vitamin E deficiency in man. "2. The richest common dietary sources of vitamin E are the vegetable oils plus the margarine and shortening made from them. These contribute about 70 percent of the average human daily intake. Cereal grain products, dairy products, fish, meat, eggs and green leafy vegetables also provide significant amounts. "3. From its very earliest availability, vitamin E has been proposed as & sub- Women*snews Mrs. Annette Phone 777- 8841 Special get-together plan tied for Mrs. DeAnnan Mrs. Rosle DeArman of Lompoc, Calif, will be honored by eight of her thirteen children and by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at a Christmas dinner Sunday at the community center.

It should be noted, however, that the reproductive problems in rats leading to discovery of the vitamin occurred only after the animals had been totally deprived of vitamin E for extended periods; it is unlikely that any human diet could be sufficiently deficient in the vitamin to lead to such severe defects. "Although some instances of beneficial effects of vitamin E medication have been reported, leading scientific and medical opinion does not support the view that supplemental doses of vitamin E have any value in preventing male impotence or sterility or in affecting human reproduction. "4. Broad-based claims of relief from most heart ailments by large doses of vitamin E have been made. However, in a controlled study of 38 patients with chronic chest pains and ar- teriosclerotic and hyperten- sive heart disease, 19 patients were given 300 mg. of vitamin E and the other 19 a placebo daily for an average of 16 weeks. The doctors reported no significant differences between the groups as to chest pain, capacity for work of cardiac muscle or capacity for work of skeletal muscle. "No positive effects of vitamin E were observed in 10 other studies. Thus, there seems to be sufficient evidence that vitamin E is ineffective in treating or preventing heart disease." The proceeding excerpts from the Food Technologists' Expert Panel were taken from "Contemporary Nutrition." (NKWSHAl'EH ENTEKPK1SE ASSN.) Cold weather nutrition By Gaynor Mnddnx We have received requests from many readers to repeat our last winter's cold weather thoughts. Appropriate, we think, with all forecasts predicting another cold winter. According to the American Medical Association, nature provides us with built-in methods of coping with much lower temperatures. We achieve cold weather comfort, in part, by generating more heat in our Internal furnace and and also by conserving that extra heat. Exercise and good food play their part. A report from the Canadian National Research Council says that the amount of clothing needed to keep a man warm when he is sitting quietly In a room 70 degrees Farenhelt will continue to keep him warm at 40 degrees when he is walking briskly. Even more surprising is the fact that at five degrees below zero, the same man will still feel comfortably warm If he Is running. Your muscles need to produce more heat in winter. They use up more energy. But nature takes care of this extra need. It turns up our appetites a few notches in cold weather. On the average, you eat about 15 calorics more per day for every one-degree drop In temperature. For example, soldiers allowed to eat what they please when stationed in the tropics, at 92 degrees, select a diet total- Ing about 3,000 calorics a day. In the Antarctic or Arctic they will cat around 5,000 calories as their Intake Increases spontaneously as the temperature drops. Skiing Is a sport that works up good cold weather appetites which are satisfied in different ways by skiers from different countries. The French like wine with their meals, even In the wintcry great outdoors, and usually cut fruit uncl cheese for dessert. The Japanese eat lightly, using rice and strips of meat or fish and drink lots of tea. However, the Americans eat more substantially, with emphasis on steaks and chops and they love desserts and carbonated beverages. Three good cold weather foods are hot soup made with meat or chicken and vegetables (rich but easily digested), fresh fruit — lots of it which supplies natural sugars for energy — and yogurt for those who enjoy It.
