HOLCOMB BELTONE HEARING AID SPECIALIST For instance, many older homes and some newer ones have bad \valls. No amount of plastering will hide cracks and with dry wall construction, seams are bound to show. Wallpaper is one way to disguise these faults. Since most modern wallpaper are washable, and colors won't fade, the decorating is done for as long as thg family likes to keep a pattern- When plaster walls are rough and uneven, one solution is to use a heavier paper such as a paper-backed vinyl or a plastic- coated paper. These papers come in a wide ! variety of patterns especially i designed for bathrooms and kitchen. In a bath, the choice j might be of a design with butter[ flies, fish, mermaids, zodiac i signs or even one with poodles. For a kitchen, there are herb patterns, stained and spiceshelves.

PROFIT STREET K-MART PLAZA Overpopulation Danger TOLEDO, Ohio (AP)—The future may see "more life en this planet than it can possible sustain," says Dr. Ralph J.

Dr. Bunche said "the popula- the "gap be- and the have tion ogre," and tween the haves two most serious problems facing mankind- He spoke as he received an honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of Toledo. H-SU Presided ABILENE, Tex. (AP) — Dr. Edwin L. Skiles is the new president of Hardin-Simmons University. Dr. Skiles announced Sunday that he was accepting the position. He replaces Dr. James H. Landes, who resigned Feb. 24 to become pastor of the First Baptist Church here. He has been active in state and national Baptist affairs. LEOPO3LDVTTJ.K. the Congo (AP) — Two good ways to risk death in the Congo: 1. Join the mercenaries to fight rebels; Drive a car in Leopoldville. As the first is safer, let's look at No. 2. Driving habits here are at first unbelievable, but after a while reduce themselves to simple terror. The right of way is on the right, and most drivers accept this. Vigilance >s necessary for about 10 per cent who must think they're in England and bear left. A variation is the one who decides to back up a couple of hundred yards the wrong way wn a one-way street. These are usually taxi drivers running back to get a fare. Taxis are a lesson in themselves. The cars generally have not undergone a serious main- tainance since they were obtained. Kow they were obtained is still a matter of question among car-theft victims. Headlights, good brakes, signals, a complete chassis and unworn piston rings are out. Rubber dice dangling from the rear-view mirror and plastic Sowers planted along the dash- joard are in. The mirror, by the way, is for the driver to view himself, nev- r to look back at a car. To become a taxi driver, one must reach a rather loose agreement with the authorities not to gouge the client much more than is on the rate card, and to print a "taxi" sign which must be slapped in front of the! driver, guaranteeing obscured .osion. ! There are few traffic cops. At; peak hours, three control the Qow along the city's streets. They are assisted by a corner man who is in perpetual argument with one offender while a lundred more drift by. Drivers Injured A TWO-CAR head-on collision Friday morning on Highway 146 near Alexander Drive injured both drivers. They are John Lloyd Polk of 1303 Narciile and Thompson Freer of 1901 Southwood. Patrolman Harvey Frost gave Polk a ticket for driving on the wrong side of the road while not passing. Usually the police wait until a total traffic Jam occurs to get off their stand and join the ooroer man for a smoke. There are a few foot patrolmen to check offenders. There are two forms of speed, too much and too little. Leopold- lle has its collection of hotshots who tool down the boulevard at 80 miles per hour or so. It has some more decrepit cars which can't top 20. No exact accidents rate figures are available, but newspaper pictures, remnants of windshield glass and the ever- present symphony of screeching tires tell the story. Who's to blame? Some say the Congolese got as much training to run cars as they did to run a government, which is about nil- Others blame tee former Belgian colonialists. Belgium was reportedly the last country in Europe to require drivers' licenses. Some say it's because nobody could pass the test. In any case, it soon becomes necessary to join the mob and wheel at random, or walk.
