Did you ever notice that
when your eyes are tired, you
are tired, too? That’s why we
need to understand light and
how to use it.
Good lighting is important
in your liome to help your
family see to work well, and
to read and play.
In preparing for good light
ing it is important to use the
right light bulb in the right
place. You don’t want to use
the clear light bulb in your
home. It is Upcofinfortable
to look at this bright light
bulb. Instead select a bulb
that is inside - frosted or one
with a white coating inside
the bulb.
The inside-frosted bulb was
developed to reduce glare of
the clear bulb. Even so,, there
is still a bright spot on the
bulb near the center. The
light spreads over the entire
bulb surface of a white coated
bulb and the bright spot near
the center disappears.
You will find that the size
of regular light bulbs is being
reduced, but the wratt size
stays the same. You can put
a new smaller size 100 watt
bulb in places that the old
larger bulb wouldn’t fit. For
most home lighting, you need
at least 100 watt bulbs. For
reading and studying a 150
watt bulb is better.
You'll get 20 to 25 percent I
more light if you keep your |
bulbs, lamps and ‘shades !

Indoor Planters —
Growing plants give a “lift”
to almost any room in the
house. Some folks put them
in planters for pure decora
tion, others in planters that
serve as room dividers or
accents to an entrance. Flo
wering plants as begonias and
geraniums are in better har
mony with tne “old fashion
ed” room. Flowering plants
require more light than foi
lage plants.
Many house plants are
grown in soil within a planter.
It is preferable, however, to
have them in clay pots set
in the planter. Surround the
pots with peat moss, shelf
moss, fine gravel, shredded
styrrafoam or similar mate
Most pot plants do best in
a roof temperature between
(>o and 70 degrees. Beware of
either underwatering or over
watering. it is safest to let the
soil become dry, rather titan
Carpet Repair —
Here’s a suggestion for easy
repair of loose threads in your i
carpet. Draw the loose end of
cloth or yarn to the back side
of the rug with a coarse cro
chet hook. Then, from the
right side pull short loops !
through the old holes until j
> ou have the space filled. Fin- '
ish by drawing the last loop
clear through to the right
side and snip off the end and
even with the loops.
You can repair a looped
bedspread or tufted bathrobe
this same way.

Cites Value
Of Safety
By Dona Kaye Pierce
What does the word “safe
ty” mean to you? The word
Safety by itself has no real
meaning. The safety of you.
your family, and maybe your
neighbors depend on YOUR
actions. It doesn’t make any
difference whether you live
in the country or the city,
you can always use ideas on
what to do in case of an ac
cident. ,
You might say, “How can
I do anything about safety?”
The answer is very simple.
First you remove hazards and
then practice good safety ha
bits in your home and com
What does “health” mean
to you? Perhaps you are like
many others who think that
if you feel well and do not
have a disease, you are heal
thy. Health not only deals
with physicial health, but also
with mental, spiritual, and
social health.
Are you happy most of the
time and go around with a
pleasant look on your face?
If you can answer “yes” to
that question, then you can
probably say your mental
health is alright.
Physicial health means that
your body feels good. For
good physicial health, you
should —
1. Have a regular physicial
and dental checkup.
2. Eat 2 good meals a day.
3. Keep well-groomed and
Your spiritual attitude is
one of the most important
cornerstones of your health.'
Faith in God and prayer will
make your spiritual health
a success.
Your social health is anoth
er important factor in build
ing good health. If you have
lots of friends and enjoy be
ing with them, your social
health is probably in pretty
good shape.
Good physicial, mental, spi
ritual, and social health build
up a strong body, but if you
are not safety-minded enough
to remove safety hazards,
your strong body can be de
stroyed by an accident. Health
and Safety go together to
build strong, able citizens.
Since Mayor Kenna has de
clared th emonth of May as
Clean-up, Paint-up, and Fix
up month, we have a whole
month to get our community
in tip - top condition. This
entire month will be devoted
to removing hazards that en
danger our health and safety.
Each one of us can begin by
ridding our own home of
these hazards and by practic
ing good safety and health
regulations. Our community
will be a bettr place to live
in if each of us make use of
this month.
