(Itwa) AGVANCI MONDAY, NOV. M, If* in my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN MMMIMMMttfMWMM How is your Christmas shopping coming? Christmas catalogue* continue to pour in, and stores are displaying their Christmas merchandise, And really, the time is growing short, "T" I road tn Interesting trtlclt t ftw days ago on tht mtrits of artificial Christmas trtts. Tht points for tht artificial trte, if* clttnlintsft and tht incrtasing btauty tnd artistry going Into tht prtstnt day artificial trtts. Tht largtr cost mtttd out ovtr tht numbtr of lifttimt ytars and especially tht firt saftty tnglt. ; r , The article also pointed out that there is lots of differ, ettce in the degree'of'safety between one tree and another and | the shopper must consider all points. I ' To thost who can bt sttlsfitd only with a naturtl trtt, ' htrt Is t solution to grctntr, stftr Christmas trtts. , An easily prepared mixture of readily available materials can lengthen the indoor life of Christmas trees and keep them looking green and fresh longer. A green moist tree is not as great a tire hazard as one that is tinder dry. Dtvtloptd by t Dlxon, Illinois, florist, tht formult is •aid to doublt tht indoor lift of most cut tvtrgrttns, tnd tlso improvt grttnntss in many casts. I am giving tht recipe as I rttd it. Good luck. I plan to try it for my dacorativt branchts. ' ' >'•'-•>' ; "•'., '••-' -'•'.• '•— • To a gallon of boiling water, add and mix: • , ' 4 tablespoons mlcronized iron (sold at garden, stores) ••••'••'• ; 2 cups clear, light corn syrup 4 teaspoons chlorinated household bleach Before setting the tret in the holder, saw aboOt one inch off tht bottom of tht trunk. This will ,remove clotted ' rtsins which havt sttltd the trunk. Thtn takt an ax or ham- mtr and crush tht fibers tt tht bottom of tht trunk. This ptrmits bttttr absorption of fht solution. > I ., , Stand the tree in a large holder and carefully pour in ' the hot solution. As the liquid is absorbed, add tap water wann- ed to room temperature, stirring it in. For best results, the , holder should have a capacity ot at least oae gallon. *. '"To tccomplish tht samt purpose, t prt-mixtd product . htsbttn introduced this year which, when prepared according to ttsy-to-follow instructions, will keep tht trea longer and :j' : se»ryt^ts a fire retardent. The Flower and Garden magaiine i quottd this preparation as inexpensively priced. I plan to in' quirt tht cost at a garden store tnd compart tht cost with fhtt of fht microniztd iron tnd corn syrup mixturt. - tree but I u'ke to decorate with branches and sprays and in such a few days they do get so brittle and sort of faded. I read in a safety magazine that as the dry pine and , evergreen needles ignite they give off puffs of gas that quickly spread to other branches and burn like a flash. _So I plan, to try nUxing a solution or buying the prepared mixture so my Christ- •mas greens look nice for a longer period of time and are safer. : Do you know that Japanese school children spend an av- " trtg« of two hours daily watching television? Wonder what tht tvtragt time is for children of tht United Stttts? V At a recent Home & School meeting our speech therapist explained the fine w6rk being done in speech therapy and .':ihow they rh^ped'contol stammerihg^' So I was\ especially interested to read an article about stammering in the Npveiniber ^'Science News'. It seems that a device to stop people, stammer„ ing is being developed in South Wales. Worn like a hearing aid, it shoots a short burst of sound into the stammerer's ear as he begins to speak each word, so that he cannot hear his own voice. , "Stammering is ofttn ctustd because tht ptrson hears •] himstlf start to speak," say rtsttrch professors. "If a buzzer is /• soundtd into tht stammerer's ear, it drowns out his own voict •' tnd if you can't hear your own voict, it is difficult to know ' how loud you are speaking. They hopt to drown out only tht btginning of tach word so that tht stammtrtr can regulate tht loudntss of his voict. They hopt to havt tHtir txperimen- ttl work finishtd by ntxt summtr. So in another year or so our spttch thtrtpists will bt using mort machint aids for spttch dtftcts than thty art now doing. Wt hopt tht results will htsttn tht' curt. ;/ The Christmas candlelight decorating ideas are so beautiful. 1 long to 'try some of them. I love Christmas time, the light, the color, the sound. With so little one can make lovely decorations and with love in our hearts and this love spilling out into our homes, everything we do is enhanced, This is the birthday of the babe of Bethlehem, this is the birthday of Christ, The King. , This is Christmas: ' Shart some trtasurt, gladden tht httrt of a child. I Mend a quarrtl tnd 'dismiss suspicion. Kttp i promise, find the time. Apprtciatt, bt kind, bt gtntlt, Express your gratitude. Go to church.
