Spools are just one of a long list of everyday house- hold items now being made plastic or metal. The use of wood for utility items is rapidly on the way so this is as good a time as any to start hoarding those wood- en odds-and-ends around the house. Someday all those old medi- cine magazine spools and cabinets from treadle sewing machines will have real cash-money value. They are our future an- tiques.

For some authorities and those in the know are loud in their praise of baking soda as a camper's aid. Few voices are raised in appreciation of this little low- cost item's value around the house.

If overworked hiking boots or sneakers have become a bit I sprinkle a little dry baking soda inside to freshen them up while the offending feet are marched off for a soothing soda soak.

My friend says she can't afford expensive professional treatments for her bleached hair I'm too so her hairdresser advised her to take home a pint of mayonnaise. The idea is to rub a hand- ful of stuff into the comb it through the hair and leave it on at least 30 min- wrapped in an old before every hoine shampoo. If it sounds a little fetched at remember there are all kinds of oil shampoos and egg shampoos on the market promising to add vigor and vat-have- you to your crowning glory. Any good mayonnaise is strong on both eggs and oil. I might add my friend's hair is lockinc trem- endous these days.
