I Big beer drinkers The world's greatest beer drinkers on a per capita basis are in Belgium, 34 gallons; Luxembourg, 33 gallons; Germany, 27 gallons; United Kingdom, 22 gallons; Denmark, 19 gallons; and the United States, 15 gallons. By MR. FIX Be a hero to your wife and save a few dollars in servicing by keeping the household vacuum cleaner in repair yourself. Few appliances get more constant use. Advertising claims notwithstanding, vacuum cleaners have remained pretty much the same over the years and certain basic features are common to all makes. There are not many parts and they are not complicated. A fan provides the suction. A motor drives the fan. A dust bag holds the dirt. On upright models the motor also turns a revolving brush that loosens dirt as it stirs up the carpet nap. The dust bag needs the most frequent attention. Ranking not far behind it is the revolving brush if the cleaner is equipped with one. Failure to keep these items clean will result in poor operation. It seems obvious but people forget-keep the dust bag emptied. Since most cleaners are equipped with disposable paper bag inserts the job isn't that much of a problem. Remember that while the dirt stops in the bag, the air con- tinues on through. If it didn't | there would be no suction. The bag filters out the dust before the air goes back into the room. When the bag is full the air cannot pass through the bag as easily and the vacuum loses its pull. A ..ew bag will cure that. The fabric bag that holds the paper insert should be cleaned occasionally. Pick a pleasant and not - too - windy day and work outside. Turn the bag inside out and brush the inside surface. Do not wash since washing can destroy the bag's dust retaining properties. Check the revolving brush frequently. String, strands of lint, thread wind themselves around the brush. If you can't unwind them, clip carefully with a pair of scissors. If the brush isn't revolving it is probably because the rubber belt that turns it is broken. Keep spares on hand; they cost only pennies. Check the tension on the belt now and then. Even if not broken, it may be stretched to the point where it doesn't work properly. In other respects the vacuum cleaner is like most other electric appliances. If it stops and starts or won't even start check the cord and the plug. The prongs of the plug may be | loose or there may be a short in the cord. Bend the cord at ] various points to see if it causes the mo'.ir to stop and start. Check all connections - the switch turns the power on and off, the wires that connect the switch to the motor. Like most motors, the one on a vacuum cleaner will stop when 'he brushes wear out. These are not brushes in the usual sense but short pieces of carbon mounted on springs on both sides of the motor. Remove the caps that cover them, remove the brushes and replace. Most electrical shops and places carrying vacuum cleaner parts stock them. Other motor troubles such as burned out coils are better left to the professional serviceman. If there is a strange vibration, check the fan. Blades may be cracked or broken. Replace the fan.

THE FUN IN GROWING SOMETHING DIFFERENT ' | AST week, 1 wrote about some novelties for 1971. The new seed catalogues are beginning to appear now and although it is impossible to try everything for the coming season I would like to recommend a few mTe of the newer varieties that look quite exciting. AGERATUM - North Sea- 6 inches, an Fl Hybrid, early and quite even and compact. An attractive violet - blue color. Sky Chief - Fl Hybrid, 6 inches, Cambridge blue, uniform and compact. ASTER - Rapture - 24 inches, salmon-red, incurving double flowers, base branching. BEGONIA - Cara velle Semperflorens - 10 to 12 inches with large flowers in Rose, Red and Pink. Earlier than other varieties. COSMOS -Bright Lights - 30 inches. Semi - double in yellow, golden-orange and red. Early flowering. An excellent newcomer, DIANTHUS - Fl Hybrid Queen of Hearts. Much brighter red than Bravo and seems to flow, er more consistently all summer. Uniform 12 inch plants, MARIGOLD - (African) Space Age - 14 inches, fully double, fringed flowers in gold, yellow and orange. (French)- Boy Scout - 14 inches. Bronze Medal Winner, All Britain Trials, very showy bicolor of double golden flowers with rich mohogany at the base of petals. Uniform and bushy plant. PANSY - Sunny Gold, Fl Hybrid, yellow without any blotches. Azure Blue - Large, early and very free flowering. PET Light promises to put on a good show. It is a vivid scarlet - red, early, and grows approximately R inches. If you iike growing tomatoes, some of the newcomers for 1971 include - Better Boy, Fl Hybrid. This seems to be quite disease resistant and has large, good flavored, meaty fruit. This takes approximately 75 days. ___________ - - _ Another one is Beefeater, Fl boats, military equipment and UNIA - El Toro, 12 inches, was Hybrid.

Parents, even so, should keep their patience - even be happy. Building models of things can be lucrative. And because it is the modern equivalent of fashioning miniatures, the blcod line of the aristocratic art runs back to mankind's dawn. There are a few whittlers- the pure form of making small models-still left. Only visitors to crafts fairs see examples of their skilful creations. Balsa wood and, later, plastics made the marketing of do-it-yourself kits the popular way for boys (and their dads) to reproduce in miniature the planes, autos. them do their stuff in their own homes all over the country). The scale is one-half or three-fourths of an inch to a foot. Builders plans are used, if possible. Photographs establish colors and the exact locations of fittings. In addition, the Henning firm turns out a great deal of work for museums. There are 67 models in the Smithsonian alone. Two triumphs of workmanship a lot larger than boats for mantelpieces make the Henning craftsmen most proud. The world's largest building, reduced from 456 feet in height to six feet, is one. That's a girder - by - girder reproduction of NASA's Cape Kennedy a double grandiflora, also a 1970 novelty, was in short supply last year, but should be more plentiful this season. This is a good blue and white bicolor. The "Magics" seemed to be the most popular of all the grandi-floras, and of these, Scarlet Magic was rated 'tops' by many people. It was also the most dwarf. One petunia that gave very good results in the trials was Red Joy. This is a single multiflora and quite early. SALVIA - Salvias are always popular and add a bright splash of color to any garden.

There are many more new varieties and one way to fa-miliaria yourself with these is to read the new 1971 seed catalogues, ' which are availa b 1 e from now on. In my December 24 article I listed a number of sources from which seed catalogues were available.  * * Mrs. J. - How often do you water houseplants?

The other masterpiece is the 48-foot model of an ancient ship seen by thousands of tourists at the Museum of Sunken Treasure, Cocoa Beach. Fla. This 6hip was at the centre of the sunken treasure drama that gripped Florida in the '50s. A storm in 1715 dashed the original vessel, the Hampton Court, loaded with bullion, onto the Florida reefs. Kep Wagner's discovery of a Spanish doubloon on the beach in 1951 led to salvage operations. Much of the recovered treasure is on display at the museum along with the large model, one-third the size of the original ship. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) If you plan to build call...

Toronto Star Syndicate) IirCK TOWN SOLD PODUNK CENTER, Iowa (AP) - This hick town has been sold to the operator of a bar and mail order business in Hollywood. John Garr said he paid $10,000 for the one-acre hamlet which includes an old gas station, grocery store and cafe under one roof and a four-unit motel. It was $3,000 more than its owners, Mr. and Mrs. Homer Weeks, asked when they put it up for sale two years ago. Garr, 52, says he will restore the deserted town to its original condition but would disclose no further details. The Weeks have been flooded with telephone calls and letters from persons offering to buy the town, but they said Garr was the first to back up his offer with cash. The product, made by Nu-trilite of Buena Park, Calif., is designed to simulate human blood. More than one million tubes cf it are estimated by the government to be on the market. The FDA said Vampire Blood is especially dangerous if it comes into contact with a skin abrasion, particularly around the eyes or mouth. TOY DANGEROUS WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The Food and Drug Administration warned last night that a toy-cosmetic called Vampire Blood, sold nationally for costume use by children, is dangerously contaminated with bacteria and should not be used. RABBIT WATCHDOG ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) � Fritz is a rabbit-a giant New Zealand white rabbit-but he doesn't act much like one. Fritz was an Easter present two years ago from Arne Koch to his wife Cathy. The Kochs say that Fritz insists on being tied in front of their trailer home so he can watch passing people and autos. When tied in the back of the mobile home, Fritz kicks the side of the trailer. When lie's inside and wants outside, Fritz kicks the door. And, although he gets along well with the Koch's German shepherd, Tramp, and a part beagle named Bambi, ho favors cat food. The Kochs say they think Fritz thinks he is a doe. FRESH EGGS Breakfast Gem Canada Grade A Size. Enter The Fresh Egg Contest. Entry Blanks in Every Carton.
