This marks the first time a moon rock has been displayed in Baytown since 1OT7. Moon sample Area rock show slated Apr!I 26 From Texas to the moon — that's where the rocks will come from April 26 when the Baytown Area Rock and Mineral Club stages a one-day show here. The display will be held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Community Building, 2407 Market. Admission is SI for adults and will be free for children under 12.

Other state minerals on view will be diamonds from around Pecos. agates from Alpine and onyx from west- central Texas. In addition to viewing Texas minerals, visitors can see fossils from the state's geologic past, including a stone believed to have come from a dinosaur's gizzard. National Consumer Week theme emphasizes quality AN AH U AC - With President Reagan having declared April 20-215 as National Consumer Week. County Extension Agent Dannah McDaniel says the theme for this year is "Consumers Rate Quality." Two of the most popular methods of shopping for bargains, according to McDaniel. are garage sales and shopping for good buys at outlet stores. SHOPPING THE GARAGE SALES Von can tell it's spring — the garage sale signs are popping up all over. If you're planning on shopping these sales for clothing items, don't forget to take along a tape measure and a list of measurements of clothes that fit you and other members of your family. Since you typically can't try on the clothes tit a garage sale, getting the right size is important. Clothes that are of the same size can measure differently in the chest, waist and hips. That's why your list of measurements and a tape measure will come in handy. Measure before you buy — even when the item is marked for size, so you can make sure you're not wasting your money on something that won't fit. SHOPPING FOR BARGAINS AT OUTLET STORES More outlet stores and even complete outlet shopping centers are opening in many Texas .cities. Because reduced prices are the chief feature of these stores, shopping at an outlet store can be a money saver. Although you can get real bargains at outlet stores, the merchandise will vary in quality and some may have flaws. One way to tell what you're getting is to know what the labeling terms on this outlet store merchandise means. Here are some of the terms used in many stores: •Samples — These garments may have been used by sales representatives. They typically- come in small sizes and may be "shop-worn." •Irregulars — This indicates an imperfection in color, size or fabric construction. The imperfections will not necessarily affect the wear of the garment and may not be visible. But make sure you know why the item has been labeled "irregular" before buying it. •Seconds — This term is applied to a garment with a visible tear. run. color loss or other imperfection. •Surpluses — These are generally "left-overs" either because they didn't sell well, or the manufacturer overestimated the number to make. End-of-the- season clothes and "odd lots" of broken sizes are also included in this category. •Mill-Ends are regular first quality fabrics that are from the end of a bolt of fabric. They usually come in short lengths and sell for a fraction of the cost. But check end of bolt fabric for flaws or wrinkles that may not press out. Outlet stores were once usually located in low-rent districts or near the manufacturing plant, but now may be found anywhere. There are even some books that list outlet stores throughout the state or nation so people can take advantage of bargain shopping while they travel. But remember that there will be some trade-offs for low prices. The stores are usually self-service, have few or no fitting rooms, limited shopping hours, no alteration services and allow no credit or returns.
