2B —THE CAROLINA TIMES SATURDAY, AUGUST 12, 1967 It's Body Shaped New Tub Made For People gMM ' ifpaj a tnl -VM.: : , .v & -if# i ' J&H From the hand made bathtub of the western frontier (1) where men took baths once a month whether they needed them or not, 'til today, tubs were made for one purpose, to hold a lot of water. True, the first manufactured tubs were larger, like the "boat-with-feet" models of the 1800's (2). And later ones, like the„side-wall types that came in during the '2o's (3), offered "modern" design, but they were still made primarily just to hold \fetel. bathtub manufacturers such as Crane Co. are going well beyond the |btleept and considering the people using them, their safety in use and how they harmonize with the decor of the rest of the room. The Empress (4), for instance, is the first "body-shaped" tub. It's tapered to al low extra hip and elbow room, and has a contoured backrest and bottom. Built in innovations include a sturdy grab bar, an integral, easy-to-clean soap dish and a wide ledge for toilet articles. An"optional slip-resistant bottom helps prevent in juries, while the tub's sculptured lines match modern design motifs.

Voyageurs aboard the twin sister ships will not have to chase all over the • crowd thronged city in search of a room. They can stay aboard their elegant ship-hotels. Browne did not have Expo '67 in mind when he wrote his much-quoted ode, but Moore-McCormack officials were very much Expo-minded when they recently announced four cruises from New York to Montreal. Every available state room was gobbled up overnight. Happily, three more Expo cruises have been scheduled.

Passengers will have three whole days in Mon treal to sample its fair-wares. In all, the round-trip voyage will lake 11 days. No one visiting Expo will be so thoroughly pampered as BRASIL'S passengers.

A promenade deck makes a loug, unbcolpuy the ship for continuous strolling. Onboard are fashionable cafes, facilities for deck sports, swim ming pools and a night club, theater, gym and beauty salon.

CJhce, this might have been a valid observation. Today, however, the outboard is found in such a wide number of fish ing situations that size is no criterion, and neither is the tendency to be temperamental. So. what IS a fishing motor? According to the fishing folks at Mercury outboards, this label can be hung on any powerplant shoving a rig through any waters for fishing from placid ponds to the briny deep. "> HorsepowerTequirements are determined by the type of fish ing in which an angler engages most often and the style craft used. On small lakes or streams where johnboats, canoes and 12-foot skiffs are adequate, the 3.9-hp engine is seen most frequently. The 6- and 9.8-hp motors out number other power classes. They fit the country-wide aver age of fishing situations where power needs are matched to lightweight craft and reason ably protected waters. On large impoundments where distances to good fishing spots are considerable, 20- and 35-hp motors are common. These units will push a boat along at a fast clip, one of the reasons they are favored by professional fishing guides. Another favorite of many guides is the 50-hp outboard that can drive a large, heavily laden skiff with ease. It's also a good choice on small family runabouts which serve in dual roles for both water skiing and fishing. demonstrations on Malaysian recipes and party fare. Demonstrations will also be given of the Malaysian crea tive arts such as batik paint in*, fabric design, weaving, brush painting, beaten metal work, prints, pottery, ceramics and flower arranging. What's New At HEW By Melville H. Hosch Regional Director A Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Region V - (States Include Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Indiana) Many fabrics burn. They not only ignite, but sometimes they burn so rapidly that escape is almost impossible. The American public is only dimly aware of the destructive ness and frequency ol such fires. Of the estimated 1,000,000 people burned in the home each year, clothing fires are involved in about 150,000 cases. Thousands more are burned in fires in volving bedding, drapes, up holstery and other household fabrics.

Of these cases, about 40 per cent involved clothing. The death toll alone is esti mated at 2,000 to 3,000 annually. Every year 100,000 persons are hospitalized for burns, occu- pying two million hospital bed days. Another 3.6 million visits are made to physicians' offices for treatment. Many Victims Helpless Perhaps one of. the most tragic aspects of these frabric burns is that many of the vic tims are those who are least able to help themselves the aged, the disabled, the poor and our very young children. Many of those injuries could have been prevented If people had been adequately warned and protected if more ade quate flammabllity standards had been in effect. The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and the Department of Commerce are working together in an effort to determine the involvement of textiles in burn deaths and injuries. The Public Health Service has been conducting extensive Held Investigations on burn cases. The purpose Is to docu ment the physical agents and human factors In bum cases Involving clothing and fabrics. When available, samples of the clothing being worn at the time of Ignition, or duplicate Items, are obtained and sub mitted to the Bureau of Stand ards for flammabllity tests. Re sults of these tests are added to the Public Health Service analysis of methods of pre vention, hospital costs, medical treatment and rehabilitation. The Public Health Service has also contracted with the University of Michigan Hospi tal to set up a National Burn Information Center. This unit Is collecting case management data on serious burns, their treatment, their costs as meas ured in hospitalisation.
