If the whole cord is in bad shape or has a break near the fan. replace it. With a littie searching you can see where j the cord enters tb; fan. Gen- erally a base plate that is re- movable, or some similar ar- rangement, covers the place where the wire is connected. Disconnect the old wire and connect new wiring in the same manner. The cord may be fast- ened to wires inside the unit, held in place with solderless connectors. Hang on to these and use them again.

Her helmeted profile occupies the obverse of the famous 50-dollar gold commemorative issued in 1915 honoring the Panama-Pac- ific Exposition. Now she appears as the dom- inant figure on the obverse of a coin issued by the Republic of Minerva, a "Free Enterprise" state located roughly 400 miles south of the Fiji Islands at 23 degrees 40 feet South Latitude and 179 degrees West Longitude in the South Pacific. Although the tiny republic is hardly more than a year old, it is already under siege by forces from neighboring Tonga. But the exiled government, in co-operation with the Minerva tribution of a limited edition of its coin in the denomination of 35 "Minerva dollars." The obverse device is sculp- tured bust of Minerva struck in pure gold (24 karat) against a background of mirror finish pure silver (.999 ifine) with frcsted lettering. The gold head should not be confused with the common principle of gold plat- ing. The two metals are met- allurgically united allowing the solid gold image to become a part of the silver surface. A limited Issue of pieces has been placed on the 1973 Minerva com. A maximum of 500 will remain with the Minerva Development Bank, Ltd.; pieces have been set aside for-previous reserva- tions, and pieces are being made available to collectors-at- large. It sells at face value with a limit of 10 pieces to a buyer. Interested readers may write: Minerva Com, The Letcher Mint, P.O. Box 107, Lancaster, California 93534.

The stems of Clematis are very brittle so care must be taken when working with it. Another climber I have on the same wall with the Clematis is the Dropmore Scarlet Trumpet Honeysuckle. While it is a little slow in getting started, once es- tablished it is quite vigorous and really very beautiful with its yellow-orange ar.d reddish, faintly scented. It blooms all summer, making a second showing of flowers in the fall.

If your vacation plans have been stymied in the past by expensive motels and hotels, it's time you discovered the great outdoors and the won- derful world of camping, par- ticularly the serenity of baing at one with nature that comes naturally ivhen a tent is your shelter. A little more than the cost of staying hcme, a camping vacation can be one of the most rewarding and relaxing experiences you'll ever have. In addition to being kind to the family funds, a camping trip can be a long-term in- vestment in your family's fu- ture enjoyment. Once you have purchased your basic equipment, you and yours can look fonvard to years of plea- sure. Camping vacations can be j as long or short as you wish a weekend, a wsek. a month or the whole summer." Basic equipment should in- clude a tent, ice chest, picnic jug, vacuum bottles, stove, cooking utensils, and a lan- tern. If you're a tenderfoot camp- er, it's advisable to make your own backyard your first campsite some weekend early in the season. Then you'll be able to familiarize yourself with the equipment so you'll be an old hand at the routine once you're far from home. It's a good way to ease the family into camp life, too.
