This Woman Makes Them In The World Of Miniatures By JIM CU05SLEY Miniatures o! utilitarian ob- jects attracted her, so Eliza- beth Fisher began accumulat- ing any such odd items she ran across, keeping them togeth- er in a drawer This innocent beginning was her undoing and Rev. Stuart Parvin relates in Hobbies magazine how Mrs. Fisher was pulled deeper and deeper into the whirlpool of the elite hobby of collecting miniatures. Elizabeth's husband had lathe in his workshop and she began playing with it. A minia- ture rolling pin she made pleased her so much she sent il to a friend who was fitting out a dollhouse. An egg darner and an old-fashioned potato masher followed that. In no time, Mrs. Fisher'was furnishing her own eight-room dollhouse and wasn't sun whether she was ensnared by a hobby or an occupation. Instead of collecting iriinia- ure articles, she began making hem. She found she was col- ecling, instead, things like odd >its of wire, small chunks of colored glass, swab sticks, ton- depressors and old furniture. gue rom Now she has her lathe and jigsaw in the kitchen. She whit: ties, uses dentist's bits expertly [or shaping and even blows glass for lamp chimneys, vases and other such objects. '_ There is more than one way (o be enticed into a hobby and the experience of the late Mrs. Sarah Mellon Scaife is another illustration In the 18th century, furniture makers and silversmiths ol England made small-scale ex- amples of their products Wealthy clients would make their selections from these sam pies and commission full-scale pieces. Mrs. Scaife fell in love with test diminutives and hunted hem down wherever she could ind them. She became so en- tranced, in fact, that she com- missioned some similar works herself. Under her direction skilled artisans made small re >roductions of several rooms in Kr elegant western Pennsyl fania every detai n furniture, wall-hangings am sric-a-brac represented down :o the authentic'doorknobs. The masterpieces of Mrs Scaife's collection were pres- ented to Carnegie Institute's Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pa., and Iheir glories today give pleasure to thousands as exhibits in that museum.

HIGHEST STATION Europe's highest rail station perches only feet below the famous Jungfrau's foot peak in Switzerland. homeowner learns is that there are certain repair and maintenance jobs that he can and should do himself. For this, an investment in toots U neces- sary. While lists of basic tools will differ in one or two items, most of them will include the follow- ing items: Screwdrivers You will need more than one. And it this point you should be reminded that there is such thing as an ill-purpose tod For screw- drivers, consider buying one of those sets that many hardware stores feature. There will be six or seven screwdrivers in the set, which should' cover just about everything. Besides a va- riety widths and thicknesses in blades, look for at least one that has a short handle to work in light places. The set should also include one or two with the special four-way tip for Phillips screws. Pliers The ordinary sHp- joint ptten wffl do for a start. Later on, you will graduate to side-cutting and kmg-cosed pliers. So called witer-pump pliers are made so that the ad- l justable jaws can .be set for a variety of sizes. Wrench Get an adjustable wrench of the crescent variety. A 10-inch one will handle most jobs but consider smaller and larger -ones in time. The smooth, square-jawed monkey wrench and the pipe wrench are others to consider if you get into plumbing which you will, eventually. Hammer Buy a claw ham- mer with a forged-steel head. The 14-ounce hammer is a gcod all-around bamnttr. Plunger TV tool known as a plumber's friend is a single- purpose tool. It is used for jpening stopped drains and is worth every peony you spend on it. Use it in time and you may not have to resort wrenches. Saw Gel a crosscut saw, one with seven or eight teeth per inch, which will handle most of the board-cutting you are likely to encounter, hacksaw for cutting metal is a worthy investment. When else fails' with a rusted bolt and. nut, you can always lop it off with a hacksaw. Measuring tools A steel Upe, about eight or 10 feet long, is handy and compact and can be used 'for inside and out- side measuring generally. Later, you can add a six-foot folding rule, the kind you see carpenters using. A tri-square is used for drawing the cutting lines on a piece of wood once you've done your measuring. Also use it to check the square- ness of ends and sides of lum- ber. buy for it. Aside from the electric drill, go easy on power lools at the beginning. Rent what you need. You may find that you don't really need a particular item after all. Do not buy cheap tcots. A good tool will last a long, loo" time and will be easier to use at any time. (Newspaper Enterprise Asu.)
