Volunteer Of Year Title Winner Raps Libbers Attitude By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer A do-it-yourselfer can lose money if he is the type w h o must try every new thing that !omes on the market just because his own labor is cheap. For some people this attitude 2an be costly. One couple has out down two kitchen floorings within 16 months, and they stUl aren't satisfied. It has became io easy to install flooring that many do-it-yourselfers b u y what catches the eye without mowing much about the product. Such decorating projects need to foe preplanned, insists one looring executive. Before you decide on a new floor ask yourself some questions, suggests Wei Haines, a vice president of Mannington Mills, a family- owned company making hard surface floorings. FLOOR NEEDS In determining what your loor needs ask yourself, he advises, what your traffic prob "ems are, how often things are spilled and dropped and what maintenance features you need You should also consider comfort and appearance, whether and designs t h a t are com- bossed surface, and whether you want to install your own flooring or have it done profes sionally. Then, too, you shoult decide on color combinations and designs that are cm patible with your own decora ting scheme. Taking it all infj consideration with your budget you should be able to reach worthwhile conclusion that nar rows your choice. After that equip yourself with knowledge of available products, industr; jargon -- and go shopping. For example, of the popular iypes of resilient flooring -- an other word for hard surface flooring -- t h e rundown goes about like this: FLOOR TYPES . . .Vinyl asbestos tile -- us ually can be installed on any sub-floor, an advantage. It is porous and lends to absorb llq uids. and needs wax. It is easy to install and relatively in expensive. The pattern does no usually penetrate the depth o the material. It is often se lected for basements. ...Solid vinyl file -- softe than vinyl asbestos, porous am dirt resistant, and the patten goes to the depths. It is easy economical and durable. Som do not need wax. These arc more expensive and can cost a much as carpet. ...Linoleum is consideret very durable, porous, requirinj care, but if waxed will rests moisture and grease. It has a long surface life although it i: likely to dent easily. ...Rotovinyls, sheet vinyls with rotogravure printed de sign, have a top protective sur face of transparent vinyl. Back ing is laminated io the sheet o vinyl. Durability varies accord ing to construction. Rotovinyls with foam con provide comfort underfoot those with asbestos fiber back ing can be installed even in th basement. Waxing is not re quired on these floorings, whicl emerged in 1970, but the sur face will clean easier and shine w i t h vinyl dressing.

Marketed y at least three manufac- urers, some rotovinyls have anti-staining ingredients built in 'hey are also decorative and available in about every brighl decoralor solid color. In heavily-trafficked rooms, sheet flooring does away with 'he dirt-catching cross-hatch ot seams, one reason for the re newed popularity of sheet floor ng.

Easy installation may be achieved too by using the dou- blefaced tape, the kind used to put down carpet. Sheet vinyl is available in 6- foot and. 12-foot widths, which may make it possible to avoid seaming which was heretofore a big hurdle for do-it-yourself- ers who h a d difficulty coping with the chemical adhesive needed to join the pieces. For a kitchen that is odd-shaped or wider than 12 feet, you might feel safer having a professional job done. Farm Exports Dip In August WASHINGTON (AP) -- Farm exports dipped during August to about $1.45 billion for the month, down H per cent from July and .two per cent below a year earlier, the Agriculture Department said Friday. On a cumulative basis, exports in July and August -- the first two months of the new fiscal year -- totaled slightly less than $3.1 billion, up 14 per cent from the same period last year, however, USDA said in a report. Last fiscal year farm exports soared to a record value of $21.3 billion. For 1974-75, officials have predicted the value may be close to that mark as the result of higher prices for some commodities. However, volumes of some items -- including feed 'grains -- will be down sharply, thus making a value estimate difficult now, a spokesman said. Couple Sentenced for Withholding Drug SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.
