He lost no ‘time in ‘painting it, and was much distressed at that within a; few weeks the ‘paint began to peel, Naturally enough he ‘blamed the paint; but in this he was wrong, for new galvanized metal ‘does not offer a ‘bond to any paint except a kind that is made for the job. In galvanizing, the metal sheets are dipped into melted zinc, which clings to the surface, and in hardening, forms a thin coat. In addition. the galvanizing becomes coated with e deposit; so that it cannot be -seen. Even so, it -has the effect of closing the pores of the zinc so that paint cannot form a bond. Un- less a special ‘paint is used the first step in painting new galvanized met- al should -be to wash it well with cider vinegar, which has the effect of destroying deposit.

The chimney is of stone, and built on the outside of his house. In cool weather the mass of masonry is cold, and so is the air in the naturally enough. When a lire is started, its heat in striving to go up the is required to move all of the column of cold air, and as this is a slow process, the resist- ance prevents the first smoke from escaping freely. instead of going up the flue, it is forced out of the tire- place opening and into the room. The remedy is a simple one; to twist a sheet of newspaper into a roll, to light one end of it, and to thrust this up the throat between and flue. This generates enough heat to start the movement of the cold air in the flue, and the tire can then be lighted without 9 sign of smoking.

Asta, famous canine of “The Thin Man\ series, has a plaque all his own, to hang in his dog house. It was awarded by the McKinley Ken- nel club ol Canton, Ohio, for \out- standing service to canine friends and the work he has done to gain appreciation for all dogdom.\ The perfect retort from all the rest of dogdom is. of course, that few dogs belong to people like Myrna Loy. The Shakespeare gardé‘n in Lightwoods park, Birmingham, England, is one of the most com- prehensive beds of its kind in existence, having more than 200 of the 214 plants that he mentions in his dramas, says Co1lier's.

E Nelson Eddy has co-starred with Jeanette MacDonald in eight \ but only recently found out what she really looked like. During the film- ing of their recent picture, “I Mar- ried an Angel,\ he asked if he might model a head of her. “You never know what a person looks like till you paint or model that person,” said he. Seems that her jaw line wasn't as he’d remembered it, and her eyes were set differently. Said she, \He knows what '1 look like now! He peered at me so much and so long that I was embarrassed.\ Cream shortening, add sugar, then beaten egg yolks. Whip until light and fluffy with Dover egg beat- er.

No man is more severely pun- ished than he who is subject to the whip of his own repentance.- Seneca. Answer: Cover with a paste of bak- ing soda moistened with water, and allow to dry. This will remove the greater part of the spotting, so that the waffle-iron and toaster aié in a condition for use. Before’ using the waflle-iron again. however, it must be brushed with a vegetable oil and heated, which is the same treat- ment given to a new waffle-iron. This is necessary because the bak- ing soda, in addition to taking out the brown spots, will also remove the grease from the surface.

E3 Question: Drains leading‘ to my dry wells are filled with dirt. Can they be cleaned without taking them apart?

It would be best for you to dig up the drains, clean them out, and relay them properly. Burning Paper If you're in the mood for reso- lutions here are some pointers that will help you make this New Year a year for more delectable food, better meals, and more at- tractive platters: Season food carefully to bring out its hidden possibilities. Rub roasts with garlic or onion, and salt before roasting. Melt but- ter [or vegetables and stir it throughout before serving. Jack Benny has never lived down his “Buck Benny” routines that were featured on his NBC series a few seasons ago, and later incorporated into one of his motion pictures. “Buck\ has become his nickname—- the rest of the cast never calls him anything else. Question: I am told that .to bum paper in a stove or furnace will in time clog the chimney. Is this true? Answer: Burning ordinary paper would do no harm, although tar pa- per or anything like it would be in- jurious. But paper should not be burned on a coal fire, for it is likely to cause clinkering. This is also true of burning garbage or other waste. WNU-—C Hot foods should be served as hot as possible and cold foods as cold as possible. Foods should be good to look at because the eye takes them in so arrange platters neatly and use parsley or fruit or vege- tables in garnishing their respec- tive platters. Heavy meals call for light des- serts, light meals for more desserts. Make use of contrast in texture, color and flavor when planning menus. You can stretch that food do1— lar by planning two or three days’ meals in advance and thus save duplication of foods too often.
