Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa What young People Think TV Movies Top Talk in Popularity Tools That Create A compass is a tool just right for making circles. It is useful for making pictures and designs. A compass has two arms, one pointed and the other for holding a pencil. To use a compass, put the sharp arm onto the paper. This point will be the center of the circle you will draw. Then spread the other arm out and gently touch the pencil to the paper. Now slowly swing the pencil arm around, always keeping the sharp arm in place in the center. When you have gone completely around once, you have drawn a circle. To make small circles move the pencil arm of the compass close to the sharp arm. Large circles are made by moving the pencil arm away from the Teens on Wheels By Michael bmm Dear Mike: Would you please be kind enough to recommend an oil additive for my 1973 Comet V8? I’ll take your word for it. Eager To Add Dear Eager: I recommend that you use no additive at all. Good pre-mium-grade oil is all any new or newish car needs. (And most older care can do nicely without additives, too). Dear Mike: Car: 1973 Pontiac Grand Ville. Problem: loud clanging noise underneath, like someone hitting the rear axle with a hammer. The garage says it’s the exhaust system expanding and contracting with heat. Impossible. Too loud. Your opinion? Worried Dear Worried: I ve heard exhaust systems click with heat hut never clang. Check for loose mufflers, shocks, control or sway bars, etc. A good front-end shop usually makes the hest detective in cases like yours.

Frederick county Commissioner Donald Lewis said he doesn't feel the county is obligated to pay for the noise-making operation which scared most of the millions of grackles, starlings and blackbirds from the local pine grove. The state health department has sent the commissioners a $1,000 bill for the sound truck used in the operation. Other bills add up to another $1,200.

Then make many circles crossing each other. Sometimes it is interesting to leave unfinished circles. Coloring some of the circles makes a very interesting design. Here is one already done. Try some of your own. They are really fun. __ ani A paper punch is another creative instrument. The small circles of paper it makes are ideal for mosaic. But the large paper into which the holes are punched can be used also for making pictures and designs. You may want to punch out a design and use it as a stencil. By putting it on top of another sheet and painting or coloring over it, the design should appear perfectly on the background. If you choose not to use paint or crayon, you can hang your punched design on a window. The sunlight peaking through makes a delightful, sparkling sight. By Nancy Gilbert Today’s young people would rather watch an old movie on late-night TV than watch a popular talk show, according to a nationwide survey of high school and college-age students. Forty-five percent of the boys and 62 percent of the girls said they’d prefer an old movie over a talk show. Eighty-seven percent said they’d seen movies of the 1930s and 1940s. On the question of whether the oldies are as good as new flicks, 41 percent said equally as good. 37 percent said not as good and 22 percent said better.
