POLLY'S POINTERS Pine Tar Is Ruining Car's Vinyl Roof By POLLY CRAMER Polly's Problem DEAR POLLY—I live in a heavily wooded area =• and tar from the pine trees is ruining the black |j vinyl roof on our car. Is there any way to remove !; these stains without hurting the vinyl? Any. sug- b gcstions would be appreciated.—JANET DEAR POLLY—I have two Pet Peeves concerning baby clothes. The pull tabs on the zippers in infants' sleepers are so sharp pointed that they jab baby under the chin. A ring type pull would be so much better. My \ second complaint*is that the shoestrings in baby shoes v are never long enough. One can scarcely tie one bow much less the two that most of us like to make as babies untie one. I always have to buy separate shoestrings for every pair of shoes. Also, I would like to tell other young mothers always to save a few empty baby jars. They come in handy at feeding time. 1 put half a jar of food in an empty jar to heat and the remainder is refrigerated for later use. This is, of course, for the time when baby cannot eat a whole can. I always divide a jar of fruit. This keeps the fruit from becoming too watery while baby is eating.—KAY DEAR POLLY— 1 am answering Mrs. W. D. S. who cannot clean a window that has been out of doors for some time and through a flood. My windows had a blue cast, were cloudy and nothing seemed to help when my grandmother asked if I had tried kerosene. They were beautifully clean after the kerosene had been removed with soap and water and a final cleansing with window cleaner or vinegar. 1 use vinegar.—WILMA DEAR POLLY— 1 buy the special fluid used for washing car windows, at a discount store and use it for cleaning grimy windows that will not come clean any other way. It always works when everything else fails.—CAROL DEAR POLLY—My answer for Mrs. \V. D. S. who has had no luck cleaning a used picture window is ammonia or a powdered cleanser that has chlorinal in it. I am sure this will do the job. I use ammonia alone (some authorities suggest two tablespoons to two quarts of water) and you can hardly tell there is glass in the window frame it is so clear—DOT \V.

Mrs. LaRue tells lier that those tiny little plants growing in the goblet seldom need watering, since she covers the top so that the humidity does not escape from the terrarium.

Mrs. Ralph Johnson of the Garden Club gives detailed directions for starting one of these miniature gardens under glass. The project was explained to the Garden Club by Ken Kollasch of Ken's Flower Shed. According to the directions, the terrarium may be contained in almost any kind of vessel- glass or plastic—five gallon water jugs, two gallon mayonnaise jars, gallon root beer jugs, candy jars, large goblets or fish aquir- iums. The larger the jar the more plants and figurines can be worked into it. The first ingredient to place in the container is sheet moss, with the green side out, then a layer of gravel and sand about three-fourths inch deep, topped by about three-fourths cup of granules of charcoal, to cover the moss. A mixture of soil, peatand sand, in equal parts, is placed on top of the charcoal or the charcoal can be mixed with the soil, sand and peat. The soil is washed off the roots before placing the plants in the terrarium. Using long bamboo stakes, a hole is dug in the soil mixture, the plant is set in, soil worked around it and tamped in. By working the foliage up in a small package the plants can be made to go through narrow openings in the containers. When the terrarium is com­ pleted, it is best to cover it with glass or plastic, at least during the night, to preserve the moisture in the jar. The soil should appear dry. When moisture is needed it can be sprayed on the plants or dropped on the roots with an eyedropper. Most terrariums do not need water more than once a month but some experimenting is necessary to learn how much water is needed, depending on. the humidity of the house. Terrariums should not be placed in the direct sunlight but they do like a light place in the room.
