Lots of Decor Ideas Are 'In' This Season Mix Rat Poison In Bread Dough ' PARIS, FRANCE (AP) - Tltree thousand loaves containing rat poison were accidentally distributed in Paris Thursday and police embarked on a massive hunt to recover the bread. The alert was given by a shopkeeper who protested to the bakery about "a strange grain of red wheat" in some bread just delivered. An investigation showed poisoned wheat sold to the bakery to eliminate rat and mice in its cellars had been mixed with the bread dough. The poison was described as an anti-coagulant that makes the rodents bleed to death. Police found some bread already had been sold. A specialist said the poison "could b» dartgerous to humans in large quantities." It was not known how much | poisoned wheat had been mixed in the bread. G.O.P.

I P YOU'RE THINKING "plaid" now, you can cover your studio couch, Hollywood bed or hi-riser and have draperies or cafe curtains to match in a great Briar Plaid in black-white-gray, black- brown-toast, red-white-black, . blue-mustard-black, or gold- yellow-black. Did you know that there is a compact refrigerator on a serving cart that can be rolled right aions where the party is with plenty of space f o r drinks, snacks, hors d'ocuvrcs? There's a great new double- faced adhesive tape that's prime for carpet tiling or for taking the "scat" out of scatter rugs, runners, etc. Don't jot these ideas down — use them!

'Sieg Heil'at Vote To Cut Off Debate OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA (AP) - Amid cries of "Shame" and "Sieg Heil," the Houaj of Commons Thursday votel to cut off debate on a government proposal that would allow the administration to limit debate on all legislation. Sieg Heil is the Nazi cry meaning "Hail Victory." The vote on the rarely used cloture motion — to end debate — was 136 to 88 with only Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's Liberal majority supporting the action. Vote on the rule change will be today. WASHINGTON. D.C. (AP) Senate Democratic leaders offered Thursday to extend the income tax surcharge five ; months while- work proceeds on tax reform, but Republicans rejected the compromise. Secretary of the Treasury David M. Kennedy and Senate Republican Leader Everett M: Dirksen of Illinois said they will continue to press' for the full year's extension sought by I President Nixon. | They contended that 15-month extension "will not do ithe job" of damping down In! flationary forces in the national ! economy. Kennedy said he had been unable to reach President Nixon in the Pacific on the offer by the Senate Democratic Policy Committee, bat Dirksen Insisted that the President would tike the position a five-month extension would be Ineffective. Senator John J. Williams (Rep., Del.), senior Republl can on the Finance Committee said the offer is not acceptable because "it does not remove the element of uncertainty tha now is so strong in the financia community." Dirksen said the compromise probably would be rejected in the House, which he said is an other reason the Senate should not pass it. Th|s estimate appeared to be borne oat by comments of House leaders. Representative Wilbur D Mills (Dem., Ark.), chairman f the Ways and Means Committee, said he still favors a ult year's extension. Representative Hale Bogs Dem., La.), No. 2 Democrat on Ways and Means and his party's House Whip, said, "I won't buy a nickel of that." Representative John W. Byrnes (Rep., Pa.), senior Republican on Ways and Meant, said a five-month extension would be "disastrous." Senate Majority .Leader Mike Mansfield (Dem., Mont.) said the offer was made "as an accommodation to the adminis- ratlon. ' el, already extended by stopgap legislation through July 31, will revert to a lower figure thereafter unless Congress acts. Itraelii Volunteer Treet for Moon TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (AP) A group of Israeli forestry workers told the U.S. National Aeronatul</s and Space Administration they were ready to plant a 2,500-acre forest on the moon so the lunar deserts would not look so naked, the Jewish Telegraph Agency said. The agency didn't say hew the workers plan to get there. Train Derails; Evacuate Town ARKADELPHIA, ARK. (AP) - About 50 to 60 families were evacuated from the rural community of Curtis, seven miles south of here, early Thursday after 37 cars of a Missouri Pacific freight train derailed Wednesday night. State Police said 30 of the cars were piled four deep and were on fire this morning with flames leaping 129 to ISO feet toward the sky. Police said 11 of the cars involved in the derailment contained chemicals. Officers said only one car remained close enough to the fire to "pose any danger" and that attempts were being made to move it with a bulldozer. A full year's extension has been approved by the House and the Senate Finance Committee. Mansfield said that some members of the Democfatic policy group went along with the compromise despite "grave reservation about the usefulness of the continuance of the surtax as an anti-inflationary measure." The policy committee voted unanimously in June not to let the surtax bill come up in the Senate until a broad tax reform measure also was ready. Earlier Thurlday, the House Ways and Means Committee approved a 11-day extension of present Income tax withholding rates, radicating a hope for extension of the rartaz before tin Aug. 13 coogrei ilonal recess.

A Sure Way To Unstick a Drawer By Heloise Cruse Dear Heloise: How do you open a stuck drawer that has swelled from moisture in the house? —C. L. Brandow Heloise says: One thing for sure, you can't sand it or plane it down until you get that drawer out. It will usually open about a quarter of an inch; if you turn your heating pad to medium heat and scoot it through the little opening, the heat from the pad will dry out the moisture in the drawer. bints •from tielofee Then, the drawer can be easily opened. Don't go out and leave the pad on; check it every 30 minutes or so. I do not recommend putting light bulbs in drawers, even though everybody says this is the proper way. That light globe might get too hot and set the chest on fire. Bright Accents 7364 Zip up a bright, dashing pant coverall to pop over your swim suit. Pattern 4550: New Misses' Sizes 8(8-10);.

If you can get the drawer open enough, here is another good trick I found: If you live in a damp climate you can put a hair dryer in there and turn it to hot. Mending Cups Dear Heloise: My daughter had a lovely cup and saucer with a lily-of-the-valley design on it. When the handle broke off, she glued the handle back on, then glued the cup to the saucer, poured in melted "paraffin wax and arranged artificial flowers in it to match the cup. She used lily-of-the-valley, and two daffodils for color and height. We have done this with other cups and saucers, using matching flowers. These make nice gifts for shut-ins and people in the hospital -Sally's Mom Smooth Sauce Dear Heloise: To make a smooth professional sauce for hot fruits with perfect results every time, use baby fruit dessert. I prefer those with tapioca (apricot or plum) because of the translucent effect. The kind you choose would depend upon the flavor and consistency desired. A little butter adds richness. —Betty Grace Barnes Child Convalescent Dear Heloise: My 7-year- old daughter came home from the hospital yesterday after having her tonsils removed. She must, of course, be given plenty of cold drinks and soft food to ease the soreness of her throat. Putting her ice cream, gelatin, etc., in regular dishes teemed too much for her and much was wasted. I hit upon the idea of using her toy cups M* glaises. I put milk or coda in her toy pitcher, and she can pour her own drink into the toy cup or glass. Serving her this way helps to amuse her, and she is more willing to eat the food whicjftlhe needs. —Angela Seeling Rubber Mats Dear Heloise: Rubber stove mats are just great for putting in baby's bathtub so baby won't slip and fall. —Mother of Four HtloiM welconui miil, «ip*ci*lly hcutehold hint» whlch_j*£ e *H,££* Writ* to HoWs* in MolM* •ntwtr of tin Hor co Today's uhimote weapon against intimate odoc New Vespre\..nbt just a deodorant,an intimate odor preventive that's gentle as baby powder.
