Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 16. The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Thurs., Feb. 7, 1974 they can bo easily seen and enjoyed. The traditional symbol ot 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 pic- tures are always fun for any occasion. For this Valentine's day try some cut paper pic- tures, 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. bolh hearts are perpendicular, giving them a three-dimen- sional appearance. Pasting near the slits will help keep them at right angles to each other. To assemble your mobile cut a piece of siring (wo feet long. At a point about six inches from one end of Ihe 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 me- dium-sized pair likewise. Skip another three inches of string and attach Ihe smallest hearts. These should reach the other end of the siring. Allow the mobile to dry thoroughly People Think Volunteer Work Beckons Students You may wish to combine construction paper cutouts with string to make some mo- bile 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 Irom colored construction paper. Then connect these with sec- tions 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 con- struction paper. Use paper of only one color or try red-pink, pink-white or red-white com- binations. 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 paper'squares. Keep the hearts iii iiieir 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 Jijancy Gilbert Gilbert Youth Service Most young people feel that doing volunteer work is a choice that should be left 'up lo the in- dividual. Although 64 percent of those rolled said that they have par- :icipated in some form of volun- teer work, 55 percent felt (hat it was unfair for one to be obligat- ed to do charity work. Several persons gave descrip- ions of the type of volunteer work in which they have been nvolved.

Less Fortunate There were a few (42 per- however, who felt dif- ferently about being obligated to charity work. They had this to day: "If you arc young, healthy and active you should feel obli- gated to do something, even something small to help others less says Judy Kezde, 16, of Highland Heights, Ohio.

Such devices have been around as long as the car itself, ami 1 only wish they'd do what their ads claim. Give your beau an Arrow for Valentine's Day.

You may have to do more cutting to adjust the pairs so that their points and tops match as Accent Youth the one word for the people I do business with at UNITED STATE BANK They're helpful and concerned about my banking needs.

We did it, way back in the beginning, because cordials make you feel friendly, even affectionate sometimes. And since, we assume, that's 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. The advantages of Arrow'1 J. 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. For one thing, in a lot of places, you can buy our cordials in a nice Valentine's Day gift carton that can save you the bother of wrapping. 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. (They didn't have cordials in those days.) Cordials suivive the comparison favorably because when you give your beau our Arrow, no one's wailing around to J P-, punish you. Just the opposite. T'% t Arrow Cordials.
