After a week of clinic, the girls will journey home to begin preparing for the first football game September 1st against Hartford! So come out and support these eager girls and our great Wildcats this year! I II I I @ GENERAL MEDICINE • I FL ORALA, ALABAMA I I Ill D Statistics tell uJ, the not-so- mrprising fact that most women )pend more of their time doing aundry (that includesironing!) :ban any other household task - t whopping 17 1/2 to 20 per- cent of their waking hours. Mrs. Mary Ellen Haynes, Associate County Extension Chairman gives the follow- ing tips to reduce laundry time: - Use hair spray to remove ballpoint pen ink stains from shirts and other clothing items. Spray the ink stain until it is thoroughly wet, then let it dry completely and put the article into your washing machine. Wash white nylon with white items only as nylon picks up color from other cloths. - Knits can be put in the dry- er, but you should always take them out while they are still slightly damp or they may shrink. Besides, overdrying can cause static electricity, al- ways a problem. - Have you ever spent hours - then given up in disgust - try- ing to get mayonnaise and salad dressing stains out of your ocial ecurity DWS Vernon A. Kilpatrick, Man- ager of the Andalusia Social Security Office cautions people about signing their relative's or friend's social security checks. "Recently," stated Kilpa- trick, "we have had a few cases where a son or daughter has been signing his or her parent's checks when the parent cannot write or can no longer write legibly." Kilpatrick states this pra- ctice is not proper and if other people are doing this, it should be discontinued at once. There is a procedure for endorsing checks in situations such as these which should be strictly adhered to. Kilpatrick explains, "The beneficiary who cannot write, whatever the reason, should make an "X" mark on the back of the check in the presence of two witnesses. Be- side the mark should be en- tered the words "his mark" or "her mark" and then the name of the beneficiary should be entered underneath. Below the name of the beneficiary, each (two) witnesses must sign his own name and identify him- self as a witness." Failure to comply with this procedure can cause serious problems. Kilpatrick further states that if a beneficiary becomes men- tally incapable of using his social security checks for his own well being, the relative or person responsible for looking after the beneficiary's needs should contact the social security office to discuss filing a claim to receive the checks for him.

Then cover the stain with liquid detergent or a paste made out of dry detergent and a little water Finally, sprinkle the spot with meat tenderizer and wash. Of course, if the garment has been treated with a stain release finish, most greasy stains should wash out without any ex- tra effort. - Cottons and polyester fa- brics tend to become yellow be- cause they retain oily soils. Good laundry techniques can rid you of that nuisance - if you use water that is hot enough (ap- proximately 140 degrees) and a sufficient amount of detergent, you will find that the stains gra- dually disappear. Overnight soaking in concentrated de- tergent will speed up the pro- cess, and you can keep fabrics bright by making sure you haven't skimped onhot water and detergents. -Try adding water softner to the rinse water to prevent static electricity in clothes and to soften wrinkles. Since sta- tic electricity attracts dirt and lint, you'll be saving on future washing chores, too. - Did you know that scien- tists say the family wash can spread disease more easily if cold water is used in washing. So they recommend hot water because it does a better job of killing germs. It also does a better job of washing clothes clean, even with cold-water laundry products, than does cold water. Drag Strips To hot rodders, the opening of a new drag strip is a cause for jubilation. But to residents of the neighborhood, the occasion may be less joyful. Do they have legal grounds for complaint? Unless banned by local statute, a drag strip (or other kind of race track) is a perfectly lawful ac- tivity. It may become unlawful, however, because of the way it is run. That is, it may amount to a "nuisance" -- subject to abate- ment by court action. "The noise alone may be offen~ sive enough to justify a stop or- der. Take this case: Residents living near a sub. urban drag strip found the noise so unbearable that they had to keep their windows shut. Resi- dents one mile away had to keep their television turned on high. Residents three miles away said the noise ("like a chain saw") could be heard plainly. down of American participation in the war in Southeast Asia. the nation faces a rising chorus of left wing and radical demands for. amnesty or pardon for those thousands who deserted our military services or who fled the country to dodge the draft. The McGovern platform even contains a plank stating that should he be elected President an amnesty will be declared for those men. Informed estimates are that more than 500 men are serving prison terms for having re- Iused to register, for the draft or be inducted into the armed forces• Between 70,000 and ,100,000 draft dodgers are living :abroad, most of them in Can- ada, where they fled rather than serve their country; and about 9,500 servicemen are either ~serving sentences in military :stockades or are confined while awai~ng trial for desertion. Compare those numbers with the more than two and a half million men who have served our country in Vietnam since 1965. There is no question that many of these men did not want to go to Southeast Asia. But they did go. They did accept their responsibililies~ And of thosd who have done their duty to their country, 518 remain as Communist pri- soners-of-war and another 1243 are listed as missing-in-action. More than 69 next of kin of these men are Alabamians. More than 55,000 Americans have died and hundreds of thousands have suf- fered wounds in this tragic war. How in the name of justice can we answer to the memory of the dead and missing, and to their surviving loved ones and friends, and explain their sacrifices if we grant amnesty and pardons to those who re- fused to serve and have vio- lated our laws? Where would be the justice of forgiving those who took the law into their own hands and refused to serve while millions of men risked their very lives to fulfill their military obligations. No nation can survive such a permissive policy with regard to its armed forces.

Even if the noise itself isn't too bad, other factors may tilt the scales against the track operators. In one case, in issuing an in- junction, the court stressed the smell of burning fuel. In another case, the court called attention to the glare of lights, powerful enough to keep the neighbors awake at night. Said the indignant judge: "To dangle restful sleep before an exhausted mortal and never allow him to taste of its refreshing juices constitutes one of the most torturesome experiences of man- kind." Still, if these assorted annoy- ances are kept within reasonable limits, the mere fact that the track brings some commotion into the neighborhood may be overlooked. Thus: The main objections to a new midget race track were 1) that traffic in the neighborhood had increased, and 2) that parking spaces had become harder to find. But this time the court denied an injunction, saying that traffic and parking were problems for the city, not for the operators of flue track. The judge said the right to use the public streets belongs to all members of the public--including racing fans.

NOTE: People ask us ho~ we can alford to offer a roomy, 6-cylinder compact at about the same price as the little imports. First. we've been making small cars since 1908. Experience helps. Second. we haven't changed Maverick-except for mechanical improvements-since ~s e first introduced it. That kind of continuity helps to control costs. Third. recent currency revaluations and dcvalualions have helped restore the compctili~e stance of American manufacturers. Most little imports give you 4-cylinder engines. Maverick gives you a 6-cylinder engine. It's smooth. It's reliable. It lets you accelerate into turnpike traffic with confi- dence and hold your own on steep hills. And it delivers .......... surprisingly good gas mileage. A good car for long trips. Maverick's rear track is 2.9" wider than Volkswagen's. Its wheel- base is 7.7" longer. There's a bit more weight, too. By themselves, these differences aren't very big-but'they can add up to a big difference in the way Maverick drives and handles the open road.
