Moving Not Tough Task Is Used to Be Any homemaker who is overwhelmed at the prospect of packing her household furnishings for a move to a new home doubtless is one who has not moved in many years. Changes hove taken place in moving techniques that today make the task surprisingly easy. Many of the better known moving companies now provide expert packers to do every bit of the packing for you, if you wish, at a small additional-charge. They are trained to do the- job not only in the quickest but safest way possible. One large mover actually conducts a moving school at its headquarters from which every packer must graduate before he is permitted to work in your home. Special packing equipment, too, such as soft cushioning pads, cartons and other materials, has been developed by movers to give all household goods maximum safety during the move. As new and better ideas on safe packing and wrapping techniques emerge, these are added to the moving procedures. The 10 "companion colors" of Marlite plastic-finished planks and blocks are styled by Raymond Loewy Associates, famous designer firm. Fuses Blowing?

Museum, Mill Creek Indian Site Draw Many Visitors to Cherokee IOWA BECKONS—NO. 20— CHEROKEE WV The old and the new are firmly linked in Cherokee and the northwest Iowa valley of the Little Sioux River. The "old" is the prehistoric Mill Creek Indian site three miles north of here. And the "new" is the $100,000 Cherokee Sanford Museum and Planetarium which has attracted some 120,000 visitors since it was built six years ago. Sightseeing Treat Together the prehistoric and the very modern offer the visitor a sightseeing treat unequaled elsewhere in Iowa. The museum, a memorial to Tiel PerLee Sanford only child of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Sanford of Cherokee, is devoted primarily to the general fields of history, natural sciences and art. Though the museum and the Mill Creek Indian site are centur -i ies apart in time, they have a 20th Century partnership. Some of the finest prehistoric Indian finds in Iowa were unearthed along Mill Creek during 1955 and 1956 awl now are on display in the museum. Representatives of the Smithsonian Institution ant' the National Park Service are among the many notables who have visited Museum Director W. D. Frankforter, 37, a University of Nebraska graduate and a trained geologist and paleontologist. Frankforter and R. J. Ruope, archeologist from the State University of Iowa, estimate the Mill Creek village was occupied as early as 1,000 A.D. Skeletal Remains Skeletal remains of grown adults and children were dug out of the nine - foot - deep excavation pits. Fragments of pottery also have been found which, the scientists say, are positive, indications that the Mill Creek Indians led a non- nomadic life. From the animal pictures that decorate clay bowls, the scientists deduced that the Mill Creek people belonged to the same group that made the Cahokia Mounds neaT St. Louis. The planetarium was the first in Iowa and is one of the few in the Midwest. Frankforter presents periodic planetarium shows, demonstrating the appearance of the night sky and the movements of the stars, planets, moon and sun. Match Decor Outdoors to The Setting By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer Outdoor living requires special decor. The sky is your ceiling, the lawn your carpet, the flowers lend motif just as your wallpaper does inside. These things should be kept In mind when you choose outdoor furniture if you want to make an impression as an amateur decorator. An outdoor deck built of redwood for instance, will require different accessories than a flagstone terrace setting. The lawn may be flattered by more colorful furniture than that used on a screened-in porch. Some people add to their outdoor furniture throughout the summer, and if purchased at sales, often these pieces do not match accessories they've been using. Pick a Theme An open wood deck looks better furnished in rugged pieces — inexpensive Adirondack type chairs or redwood accessories—sawbuck tables, benches, chaises. The screened porch may be highlighted by wicker and rattan. A covered terrace may use white yachting chairs, a variety of metals including brass and wrought iron. We get colorful on the lawn where nature has provided brilliant greenery and floral hues. Any Good Handy Man Can Repair Storm Damaged Aluminum Doors By MR.
