Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 16 I'lir Cedar Rapids (ia/rtte: Thins., lob. 7. 15)71 they can bo easily soon and enjoyed. The traditional symbol of St. Valentine’s day is the. heart. It is exciting to see how many art projects you can devise using the heart shape. Here are a few ideas to try. Cut construction paper pictures are always fun for any occasion. For this Valentine’s day try some cut paper pictures, but with a different aim in mind. Limit yourself to using only the heart shape for all objects in your picture. On your background sheet you may paste any cutouts you wish of any size and color, but they must be heart-shaped. Therefore, if you are showing animals, people, or buildings in your picture, all of their parts must be heart-shaped. Sound easy? Well, perhaps, but remember even such items as smoke, wheels, trees and clouds must follow the “shape” rule. closely as possible. Then maneuver the heart pairs so that both hearts are perpendicular, giving them a three-dimensional appearance. Pasting near the slits will help keep them at right angles to each other. To assemble your mobile cut a piece of string two feet long. At a point about six inches from one end of the string, glue the largest pair of hearts. Make a line of glue lengthwise at the slits and lay the string into it. At a point about three inches below the largest hearts attach the medium-sized pair likewise. Skip another three inches of string a n d attach the smallest hearts. These should reach the other end of the string. Allow the mobile to dry thoroughly What Young    Think Volunteer Work Beckons Students You may wish to combine construction paper cutouts with string to make some mobile Valentine items. Figures of animals and people are especially fun to try. When these are hung and moved by the air they are exciting to watch. Simply cut out the heads, feet, hands, and bodies from colored construction paper. Then connect these with sections of string glued to each paper piece. Add decorative details with felt-tipped markers, paint, or crayon. Hang your figures up where A lovely three-dimensional Valentine mobile is made by cutting six hearts out of various sized squares of construction paper. Use paper of only one color or try red-pink, pink-white or red-white combinations. First, cut a pair of identical hearts from two six-inch squares of paper. Next cut two identical hearts from a pair of four-inch paper squares. Then you will need two hearts cut from two two-inch papeF squares. Keep the hearts iii their pairs always. Now begin with the largest pair of hearts. Take one and, beginning at its point, cut halfway into its center. Next take its mate and make a similar cut, only begin at top center, between the two humps. Do likewise with the other two pairs of hearts. By bailey Hilbert Gilbert Youth Servlet Most young people feel that doing volunteer work is a choice that should be left up lo the individual. Although 64 percent of those polled said that they have participated iii some form of volun-    $ teer work, 55 percent felt that it £ was unfair for one to be obligated to do charity work. Several persons gave descriptions of the type of volunteer work in which they have been involved. “I have collected money once or twice for various charities. I do the March of Dimes walk every year,” says Daw n Ii ratine, 14, of Mayfield Heights, Ohio. Hospital Work “I have worked with brain injured and slow learning children and adults. I have also done volunteer work at the VA hospital,” comments l^eshe Friedman, 19, Hamden, Vt.

They shouldn’t have to feel obligated to spread themselves too thin, notes Martin Watkins, 19, ot State College, Pa. I,ess Fortunate There were a few (42 percent), however, who felt differently about being obligated to charity work. They had this to day: “lf you are young, healthy and active you should feel obligated to do something, even something small to help others less fortunate,” says Judy Kezde, 16, of Highland Heights, Ohio. “I feel that everyone in the community should contribute according to their time,” says Phyllis Pass, 21, of Euless, Texas. “Young people have the energy to do extra work, it be-"It is up to a person to comes more difficult as one choose, the charity must come grows older,” says Peter from a person’s own heart,” Gardner, 17, of Chicago, 111. comments Sue Heavillin, 17, of ,Th«rc ,nevertheless. rt. i,w* .

Teens on Wheels By Michael l.arnm Dear Mike: I need a ring job on my I yr,4 Chevy 6 it smokes. I’ve gotten several estimates on the work Two shops want to use cast non rings and the third says the standard Chevy steel rings are best. What do you say? Stoveboll Sam Dear St avie: Cast iron rings seat mote quickly and hatter in an oft/ engine. I'd go with them Dear Mike: I have come across many items in car magazines and catalogs that supposedly increa: gas mileage. Some claim to break down fuel droplets sonically or electronically, others inject water or air into the fuel system, some regulate pressure to the carburetor. All seem to include money-back guarantees. But theres got to be a catch somewhere, otherwise why wouldn’t Del roil and everybody else be installing these devices in the face of our present fuel shortage? I’ve enclosed some ads for these devices. Could you tell me if any of them work? Wondering Dear Wondering: To put it as bluntly as I can, they don't work. Such devices have been around as long as the car itself, and I only wish they’d do what their ads claim. Then take each pair and attach them by sliding them together at their slits. You may have to do more cutting to adjust the pairs so that their points and tops match as before hanging it up to display. With these ideas, have a very happy Valentine’s day.

We've been waiting all year for this: to point out we didn t adopt Cupid s (Avn symbol for Arrow Cordials for nothing. We did it, way back in the beginning, because cordials make you feel friendly, even affectionate sometimes. And since, we assume, thats exactly the way you feel about somebody special in your life, giving an Arrow Cordial for Valentines Day is one way you can let that person know how you feel. I he advantages of Arn av' Cordials over other tokens of affection are so numerous, in our mind anyway, a complete listing would run off the page. But we should point out two.

More important, Arrow Cordials taste good, in a sophisticated and subtle way such a flat statement can't do justice to. And because of their irresistible taste, we often compare them to the apple Eve gave her boyfriend. (I hey didn't have cordials in those days.) Cordials survive the comparison favorably because when you give your beau our Arrow, no ones waiting around to punish you. Just the opposite. Arrow Cordials.
