(AP Wirephoto) To Circulate Hand Tools Regional Library Develops Consumer Material A grant of $21,250 has been approved for the Ozarks Regional Library to develop a nucleus of consumer education material and to promote the usefulness of a library to the community. The grant, administered by Arkansas Library Commission, is under Library Service and Construction Act of 1973 and is part of the impounded funds released this spring. The project will be in full operation by August and will continue for one year. Mrs.- Carol Wright, librarian said several projects are already underway, with summer story hours instituted at libraries in the regional system winch formerly had not h a d ; them. A collection of patterns and books for home sewing is being developed at t h e Mountainliurg library to meet the needs of patrons who are turning to sewing to help stretch the household budget. .Helping people to stretch the budget during this inflationary period is one of the prime reasons for drafting the proposal, according to Mrs. Wright. "Patrons are asking for more books on self-help. They want to know more about the products they buy and how to do simple repairs on h o m e appliances," Mrs. Wright explained. Requests also are frequent for books on learning crafts, "Not only learning how to make things as a hobby, but how to market the articles successfully," Mrs. Wright said. TO CIRCULATE TOOLS Another first for library service are plans to circulate hand tools. The hand tools, will be those which are usually a onetime requisite for .a given project, such as a level. The regional library, which serves Washington and Crawford counties and Rogers in Benlon County, will continue to develop projects to meet the special needs and to build up materials on consumer information. These will include information on retirement, investments, gardening, farming, crafts, food, car repair, small motor repair, collectibles, house construction, h o m e made energy sources, such as windmills, boats, vacations and land purchase. Ford Sees Partisanship In Strauss Impeachment Statement : WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice' President Gerald R. Ford and three other top Republicans have accused Democratic National Chairman Robert S. Strauss of injecting politics into the congressional impeachment inquiry. "It makes it partisan." Ford said of Strauss' pro-impeachment statement. It "could have a backlash" that will help the President. Ford told a reporter Wednesday night. GOP National Chairman George Bush, Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott and House GOP Leader John J. Rhodes also hit back at Strauss' statement. Strauss had said he would be shocked if the House Judiciary Committee fails to vote for impeachment and surprised if the full House doesn't follow suit. At the same time, a Democratic member of the Judiciary Among hooks already pur- :hased is one "How to Make it on the Land." The book tells ibout beekeeping and land clearing. The title and subject matter is reminiscent of the 'back to the- farm" movement which occurred at the turn of he century. The movement ained impetus by C. R. Lighon who moved to Fayetteville and used Happy Hollow Farm as the proto-type for many of lis popular books and articles n the Saturday Evening Post. Another - book gives recipes or making cosmetics. Colognes and shampoos, using ingredients commonly found, are among the cosmetics which can be produced at home. Food preservation, simple epair of home equipment and p r a c t i c a l homemaking a r e opics covered by the materials on hand/These topics will be expanded by other books, pam- hlets and government documents Mrs. Wright said. The new supply -has already supplied information for one patron vho wanted to know how to construct a root cellar, she iaid. Yet another phase of the rogram is preparation of a jibliography on pre-natal and nfant care. This is being distributed by the La Leche League. The grant will also be used o add books to the large type print collection of fiction and non fiction selections for persons with failing eyesight Mrs. Wright said. lommiltee, Rep. Wayne Owens of Utah, said in a House speech that Strauss should keep hia "political nose" out of the panel's deliberations into whether Nixon should be impeached. Bush said the tragedy ol Strauss' comments would be il they dragged the impeachment question "even more into partisan politics." He said that if the impeachment process becomes purely political it wil degenerate "into nothing but a mudslinging fight from .which everyone in the country--Re publican and Democrat--will be the loser." Scott said he views Strauss statement "as his instructions to Democrats to vote for im prachment." "It seemed to give the whole thing a political tinge." Rhodes said at a reception Wednesday night honoring Ford. Lonoke Bodies Identified LONOKE, Ark.
