Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Whaf 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 jivill 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 tenter. 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.

I'll take your word for it. Eager To Add Dear pager: 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 cafe can do nicely without additives, Dear Mike: Car: 1973 Pontiac Grand Ville. Problem: loud clanging noise underneath, like someonei hit- ting the rear axle with a ham- mer. The jgarage says it's the exhaust system expanding and contracting with heat. Impos- sible. Too loud. Your opinion? Worried Dear Worried: I've heard exhaust sys- tems click with heat but .never clang.

Some- times it is interesting to leave unfinished circles. Coloring some of the circles makes a very interesting de- sign. Here is one already done. Try some of your own. They are really fun. ara 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 an- other sheet land 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 jnakes a de- lightful, sparkling sight. Birds Have Left; Now Who Pays?
