TEMPERATURES ARE HIGHER SAYS LOCAL DEALER Many motorists, reviewing the win ter as March winds indicate its end, have asked themselves, “are the win ters milder or do they only seem so?” It is true that weather bureau re cords show a slight tendency towards higher temperatures, said J. Scott Porter, local Studebaker dealer, in answer to the question, but he also insisted that there’s a lot to the theory that winters only seem warm er today. Mr. Porter recalled the scene of only a few years ago when the fam ily embarked upon a winter drive. “It looked like moving day,” he said. “Robes, blankets, extra sweat ers, shawls, snow shvels and even 'nm FABRICS Hang them at your windows; drape them over your furniture; turn them into ___ fashions for breath taking freshness! ■XI We’ve pretty fabrics in every % new c °l° r texture and weave . . . including those grand washable cottons!

The car that awaited these heavily laden passengers was as de void of warmth and comfort as a cold baseburner. Remember those flapping side curtains—usually with one or two broken panes of isinglass through which the wind whistled? Remember how the windshield frost ed over so badly that the driver had to get out to scrape it clear? “Even when sedans came in, the car’s inside temperature was like an unheated bedroom at 4 A. M. Some measure of relief came with the early car heaters. But these toasted the driver’s feet and ignored the back seat passengers. “The advent of the Studebaker Cli matizer brought central heating and comfort to winter motoring. “Watch today’s family leave for a drive in a new Studebaker. Heavy wrap and robes are left at home. The women have no qualms about WORCESTER DEMOCRAT, POCOMOKE CITY, MARYLAND wearing their sheerest silk hose. The men may even shed their overcoats. Studebaker’s Climatizer is the reas on. The warmth it provides rivals that of the most modem heated and air-conditioned homes. “Even in zero and sub-zero weath er, passengers inside the car may bask at living-room temperatures.” Mr. Porter explained how the Studebaker Climatizer works. “At a touch of a switch on the dash, the Climatizer draws in fresh air from outside the car—filters it—heats it and distributes it all around your feet and right up to your ears. Every body’s comfortable —even grandma with her chilblains. Should fog or ice collect on the windshield, you just switch on the defroster. “So I believe most of us remember the ‘cider’ winters of other days only because we didn’t have modem com forts. The winters just seemed cold er because of the comparatively crude conditions under which we lived.” NILE BLUE TO BE THE COLOR FOR POISONS To Distinguish “Roach” Pow ders From Those Used For Household Purposes Because “roach” powders which are usually deadly poisons, can be so easily mistaken for yeast powder, flour, sugar, meal and other supplies used in cooking and baking—all of which are white powders—a move ment is under way to require all com pounds used as household insecticides to be colored Nile blue. Preliminary steps toward the extension of the State Poison Law to include such compounds under its restriction pro visions have also been taken. Several cases of poisoning attribut ed to this cause have occurred in Maryland and in other states. Na tion-wide attention has been focussed recently on the inherent danger from this source through the experience re ported from Pittsburgh in January, in which from twelve to fourteen deaths and forty cases of severe poi soning were attributed to the acci dental substitution of a powdered in secticide for flour, used for hot cakes, at a shelter for homeless men. The movement to require the col oring of such compounds sold in Maryland is sponsored by the Bureau of Food and Drugs of the State De partment of Health in cooperation with the Maryland State Board of Pharmacy. For the further protection of the public against the hazards involved in the use of the poisonous chemi cals that form the basis of house hold insecticides, the Board of Phar macy has notified manufacturers and distributors of such substances, that these chemicals shall be subject to the restrictions imposed under the State Poison Law, governing the manufacture and sale of other pois ons. A public hearing with regard to this order has been called by the State Board of Pharmacy and will be held at the State Department of Health in Baltimore City, Friday af ternoon, March 21. Snow.
