NAJffi ADDRESS (Lett.) Keep Paint Rolling A roller is a handy tool for painting ceilings according to the Canadian Paint Manufac- turers Association. Here's tip for keeping the paint roll- ing on smoothly. When painting a rectangular room, work across the width of the room rather than the length. This way, you will be able to paint the second strip before the first dries, avoiding the problem of lap marks. YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. HOE STILL BEST WEED KILLER that did not germinate earlier Hand pulling of weeds close to T1FOPT V are often asHne for Plante is a mus( pEOPLb are otten aiding IOT _ seeded> may also IWVV 3CCUCU, tUlU 111UJ some easy way to get rid advisaWe near transplants o! weeds in the garden, and from my experience there is one way and that is to cut them down with a hoe or cultivator while they are young to prevent them setting seed and getting loo deeply rooted, or to get down on the hands and knees and pull them out. The latter is the best and most effective method for shallow, surface rooming plants. Weed- ing by hand is done most effec- tively when the ground is slight- ly moist. Working on it when too wet could cause the soil to become too compact. There are a number of chem- ical weed controls on tlie mar- ket, and if used carefully, ac- cording to directions, they can also be effective. Some of these 'chemical hoes' have limited uses such as for lawns, or only for around established plank in rock gardens, flower beds or shrubbery, or for pe planting, which kills all plants pesent and you then have to wait at least three weeks before plant- ing anything. Whether you weed by hand or chemicals, in either case, once over is seldom enough as new plants arise from other seeds perennials where injury from the hoe could occur. Mulching is an effective waj to control weeds and at the same time conserve moisture Peat moss is very good for this as it is weed and disease free and is clean and easy to han- dle. Another kind of mulch thai is increasing in popularity is the use of crushed stone, which is especially useful around low shrubs and evergreens. Some people put a layer of plastic down first, punching small holes at intervals, before using the crushed stone or other material Another major group of un- wanted plants in gardens or or- namental plantings are those from underground perennial roots. These are more difficult to eradicate or control. The only way to eliminate these tap roots, stolons, etc. is by deep cultivation where it can be un- dertaken or by using a trowe or similar tool, to remove and destroy all unnecessary parts When an ornamental plant is faadly infested it should be dug up and re-set, after careful re- moval of tlie undesirabla weec parts. 23758 1965 DODGE 6 cyl., standard.

No Jobs Available In Alaska SEATTLE, Wash. Iff) There are so few jobs in Alaska the state is paying a group of college students a month to man points of entry and ward off prospective workers. "We're trying to get the word out that right now Alaska has no jobs and no said Gary Selk, 21, Alaska Methodist University student from Anchor- age who mans a special booth at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. "I'm living proof." Selk said Tuesday. "I wouldn't be work- ing if I didn't have this job for the summer in Seattle." Alaska's health and welfare' department selected students from AMU, the University of Alaska and Alaska Community College to take up posts at the ferry terminal here, the airport and at similar facilities in Blaine and Sunias, Wash., and Sunburst. Mont., and in Minne- sota as well. "In an eight-hour shift we managed to convince two guys to turn back their airplane tick- Selk said. "We just tell them there's nothing.

By taking advantage of these pointers for palefaces you can have a healthy tan Ihat will secure your place in the sun. 1. Decide what area of your body you want to tan, then dress accordingly. For exam- ple, if you're a gal and want to tan only your face, shoulders, arms and legs, a strapless sport dress should do; for tan- ning more of your body, a mod- est swim or play suit is prob- ably the answer; or if you want as complete a body tan as pos- sible, a bikini is almost a "must." Plan protection for your hair and eyes, too. Ultra- violet rays actually penetrate your eye-lids and can hurt your eyes if you don't protect them with sunglasses or pads of cot- ton. 2. Select the place for your sunbaths carefully. For the most successful tanning, a pri- vate patio has many advan- tages over a public beach. For example, on a patio or in a back yard, it's easier to have all your sunning accessories close at hand; easier, too, to time yourself so you can turn more frequently for a more even tan. 3. Be well aware of the time of day and (lie weather. The sun's rays are most intense from 31 a.m. to 2 p.m., so sun- batliing is much safer before and after those hours, and there is very little danger of sunburn before 8 a.m. or after 4. p.m. Build Your Own Yard Fireplace If you long for.-, a picnic out of doors, but find no pleasure in bumper to bumper traf- fic, a happy solution to your problem can be found in the pat- tern offered below.

Although cloudiness and rain reduce the amount of burning rays which reach your skin, it's very possible to get a serious burn on an overcast day. Re- member, too, the reflection of ths sun's rays on water and sand increase sunburn danger, so you can burn under a beach umbrella or a shade tree. Over- cast skies may even increase the danger of sunburn for the humidity softens the external, protective layers of your skin. 4. Know the difference be- tween tanning and burning. Ac- cording to researchers, tanning is caused by careful exposure of the skin to certain invisible ultra violet rays of tiie sun. First, those rays penetrate the skin, causing the formation of color granules which gradually migrate to the surface, thereby causing the skin to take on a deeper tan. At the same time, the outer layer of skin becomes thickened, which offers addi- tional protection from burning rays. Overexposure to the sun's rays, however, damages the epi- dermis, causing redness, pain and iaflamation. 5. Use caution to the length of your exposure to the sun. Because individuals vary great- ly in their ability to tan, it's safest to start with only a few minutes in the sun each day, then, as your skin becomes sun- conditioned, gradually increase your exposure time. In general, 20 minutes exposire in the noon day sun will cause some red- dening of untanncd skin, al- though the redness may not show up for several hours. Peo- ple wilh dark complexions are much better able to cope with sunlight than individuals with blue eyes and fair complexion; if you're a redhead or if your skin is dry, you should be very careful about sunning. 6. If it's a tan you're after, protect your skin with a lotion that filters out the sun's burn- ing rays but lets the tanning ones through. Without any pro- tection, it takes only a couple of hours in the sun to turn your skin red and sore. 7. Heapply and watch your eyes. Remember that your sun- tan lotion is washed away each time you take a dip. Even if you don't go in for a swim, nor- mal perspiration may carry away your thin lotion coaling in two hours or less. It's also important to remember, each time you come out of the water, to put your sunglasses or other eye protection back on; ultra- violet rays can penetrate your eyelids and seriously impair your vision. 8. Cover up for safety. Loose, lightweight clothing, closely woven and dry, gives the most protection. Damp beach towels aren't much help. A hat with a wide brim helps prevent sun- stroke, and a beach umbrella means added safety, especially for children. 9. The sun can simmer your skin without your knowing it. In fact, according to doctors, sunburn can be accompanied by more violent reactions such as fever, chills and nausea. Sun- bathers often make the mistake of dispensing with protection or cfl staying out too long on a cloudy day, because they don't realize that the sun's burning rays can come through clouds and even fog. 10. Some people really don't have such thick hides as their brunette and brownette bud- dies. Studies show that, pigmen- tation factors being equal, men are about 20 per cent more sus- ceptible to sunburn than women are, and that children are more sensitive to the sun than, are adults. Regardless of your age Hippocrates, the of Jived during the Golden Age of Pericles in the 5th century B.C. He is .regarded as the first man to base the practice of med- icine on observation and study rather than supersti- tion, The World Almanac says. Many medical schools still use the Hippocratic oath as part of their gradu- ation ceremonies. Doctors taking the oath pledge not to divulge confidential in- formation about patients. Tips Ou Usiug Paint Brushes The right paint brush light- ens your work, hints the Cana- dian Paint Manufacturers As- sociation. Let the surface and type of naint determine the kind of brush you use. If you plan to apply water based paints to a large area, a calci- mine brush wtih very long, elastic hog bristles will save you time and energy. When ap- plying oil-base paints and lac- quers, use flat or chisel shaped enamel and varnish brushes. Make sure any brush you US6 is of the best quality. or skin type, you'll cut down your chances of burning if you choose your time for sunbath- ing carefully. Chances are, when you know how to protect yourself against the hazards of sunburn, you can have fun in the sun without tho warm weather getting under your skin.
