Proper Care For Zippers
Open zipper placket ail the
way when putting on or taking
off a garment.
Close the placket when gar
ment is not in use to preserve
garment’s shape and to prevent
sagging and stretching.
Close placket before washing
or drycleaning.
When wringing out a gar
ment, and especially before
placing between rollers of a
squeeze-type wringer, protect
closed zipper within folds of
garment. Be sure zipper is
straight and pull-tab flat.
Keep zipper closed and cover
ed when ironing. This protects
the iron by preventing scratch
ing, and protects a synthetic
type zipper from excessive heat.
To release caught thread or
fabric, work gently to avoid
damage to fabric or closure.

Auctioneer Elmer Murry, Lititz, shows several
stalks of peanuts he raised in his garden this summer.
Some of the vines had as many as 35 or 40 pods.
Local Auctioneer Raises
Bumper Crop Of
It could be that Auctioneer
Elmer Murry has introduced
another cash crop to Lancas
ter County farmers—peanuts!
And despite his seemingly
sensational success at raising
a crop of goobers on his farm
three miles west of Lititz
neither he nor his neigh
bors are counting on having
peanuts replace tobacco locally.
Just to satisfy his curiosity,
of which he has plenty, Elmer
bought a quantity of seed pea
nuts from a dealer in Virginia
where he bad gone to conduct
an auction early last Spring.
After getting a few instruc
tions on just how to go about
it, Elmer planted two 60-foot
rows at the end of his garden.
He soon learned that there’s
a bit of work to peanuts, just
the same as any money crop,
and that the soil must be kept
loose and piled up about the
“The root that produces the
peanuts comes from the blos
som and buries itself in the
loose soil,” he explained.

digging up as many as 35 or
40 peanuts per vine.
Although he has given many
away to neighbors and sent
some to the pairland School
where his son, Pat, eight, and
daughter, Eva, eleven, attend,
most of the several bushels of
peanuts are now being cured.
What ways are suggested-tar
marking containers of poison*
ous liquids (iodine. insecti
cides, or household 'disinfect
ants) so that they cannot be
mistaken for medicines, etc.,
even if handled in the dark?
In the first place, never take
anything internally in the dark
and never keep anything but
medicine, antiseptics, etc., in a
medicine cabinet. Always turn
on the light and read the label
carefully. To remind yourself
and others, put two strips of
adhesive tape across the bottle
top so that it must be removed
before the contents can be
poured; and/or tape a piece of
sandpaper to the box or bottle
to make it obvious, even to
the touch, that it contains
