Several weeks ago she went shopping for abed. After checking several stores, Mrs. Villines figured she might have something stored sway thai could do the job Just as well. Sure enough, tucked away in the packbarn was a three-piece bedroom -'ut . that had been purchased more than20 years ago. Since she had already learned how to refinish furniture at an Extension-sponsored work shop, Mrs. Villines took on the mammoth task of refinishing a bed, chest of drawers and a dresser. Total cost was $20. Time invested was about two weeks. The homemaker is not only proud to display her new furniture, she's promised to conduct a workshop for others in her community who want to "recycle" old fur niture, says Annie Tuck, home economics exten sion agent. MRS. SANTA Extension Home makers Club members in Alamance County came to the rescue of Operation Santa Claus by contribut ing money, personal toilet articles, playing cards, books and clothing. Amelia Watts, assist ant home economics extension agent, explains that Operation Santa Claus was a county-wide project to secure Christ mas gifts for Alamance County residents at the John Umstead Hospital for the mentally ill and the Murdoch School for the retarded. SEAM GUIDE Mrs, Kyle Williams, Bladenboro, Columbus County found a wayHw modernize her old sewing machine. At a recent tie making workshop, the home maker discovered that most newer model sewing machines have marking lines imprinted on the throat plate of the machine for help in making various width seams. Since her older machine' didn't have these marking lines, Mrs. Williams solved the problem by putting a piece of masking tape on the throat plate to the right of the needle and marking off, with pen, the various seam widths she would need. It's helped speed up her sewing, adds Ann Bobo, assistant home economics agent. Cocoa bean shells arc used in fertilizer cattle food and medicine. i - . I mmm.

If the car begins to skid, steer in the direction of the slide until the auto begins to straighten out. Then, straighten the front wheels to avoid a skid in the opiosite direction. Never use brakes to control a skid. Avoid sudden starts or stops. Avoid heavy braking and over-steering.

Check with your fiimilv phvsician before beginning any diet regimen to ex amine the nutritional value of your diet. Then, simply reduce the portions you take of the foods you normally eat. Don't go on a semi-starvation diet unless your doctor recommends it. Diets of 600 calories or less a day make it almost impos sible to get all the proper nutrients and can leave you ex hausted, irritable and more susceptible to illness.

Those interested in the history and lifestyles of this fascinating continent can now take advantage of a new in-depth tour program from Air Afrique aimed at discov ering more about its civiliza tions.

Here are some good tips from these booklets that can make your paint job easier and minimize the mess when you're done: Rub protective cream onto your hands before you start, in order to facilitate paint removal later. Or wear old gloves. Remove any "skin" from the surface of the paint be fore you start to mix. Other wise bits of the skin will crop up repeatedly to ruin the consistency of your paint job. Dip your brush into the paint no more than one-third the length of the bristles in order to minimize splattering and dripping. - When painting around a window, experiment with wet newspaper as a masking material to keep paint off the glass. The moisture will help the newspaper adhere to the glass and also prevent the paint from soaking; into the paper. 4 VOTH CAfOtjH mm 1(L Self etrtt m$mtt SW4jv JUg'-' "'to" !

Af ser Killv Pflffl me Ana Mrs. Jones wen iww vi jwj v. .7 - Billy Paul closed out test year with a flourish, possessing -the number one record in the country, "Me and Mrs. Jones." Not only was the million-selling smash the heaviest played disc on both AM and FM airwaves, but was the choice of many as the sentimental hit of the de cade. It seemed to many people that Bily Paul came out of no where, via this Gamble-Huff in stant classic, to become con temporary music's newest star. But Paul has always been part of the musk scene in Black America. With earlier efforts' such as 'FeeuV Good at the Cadillac Club" on Gamble Re cords, and "Ebony Woman" on Neptune Records, Paul's follow ing grew in all markets with later efforts on Philadelphia In ternational, "Going East" and "360 Degrees of Billy Paul." Paul, known for his wide as sortment of hats and flashy at tire, has also been a nightclub and concert attraction long be fore the success of "Me and Mrs. Jones." So, for him, being a 'star' is just a fhrther exten sion of what he has been doing all the time. "The thing that frightened me most about this 'star' busi ness," Paul expressed, 'was when I received the record for B AN IMPRESSIONABLE ASSET! Yes, that's what a savings account is at this bank.

I had never gotten a gold record before, though many of my records had sold well. But just the idea that tell.

But Billy knew that "Me and Mrs. Jones" was a hit the first time he was given the words by Kenny Gamble and Leon Guff, producers and co-writers of the tune, 24 hours before the recording session. "As I said before, everyone has either had or been a 'Mrs. Jones'. But 'Mrs. Jones' can mean so many things. It sould be a friendship, and not ne cessarily a love affair. And, if it is between lovers, they don't have to be married. And so many people fall into those categories that they almost have to be affected by the song." Billy also acknowledges the fact that there was a 'Mrs. Jones' for him as well, though he won't fessionauy when he was 15. He spent time as a member of several local groups, including the Blue Notes, which now (as Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes), have made a major mark on the pop scene as well with the hit, "If You Don't Know Me By Now." Billy, however, felt cramped being part of any group and be gan working as a solo act. In stead of moving out of his city like many artists seeking a hew direction do, he stayed in Phila delphia and built a reputation as one of the top stylists a round. And, unlike many male vo calists who listen to other male singers for inspiration and an education, Paul was Influenced by female singers more.

But put on a Nina Simons, Car man McRae or Nancy Wilson album, and I'd be in seventh heaven. Female vocalists just did more with their voices, and that's why I paid more attention to them" Soon after that, Paul record ed "Feeling Good at the Cadillac Club." I produced that album myself," he recalled, "it took about three hours total, from recording to mixing." The LP a jazz-oriented endeavor, recei ved wide acceptances from the Eastern part of the country. The relesae of "Ebony Woman" opened the door for the two I more successful efforts to come, "Going East" and "360 Degrees of Hilly Paul," the latter ac claimed by many to be one of the best recordings of the year. "When I look back at all the things I have done and aD the things I have experienced," Bffly stated, "I believe that the time when things really started happening to me, which was at the end -of last year, was right. If it had happened when I was 18-years-old, I wouldn't have been ready for it. But I feel good that it is taking place mm, and that the wait was well worth It." 3.3 Million With Kidney Problems Don't Know About It To PM's, Toes Jan. 9, 1973 A critical shortage of kidney donors may doom 9,000 Amer icans in 1973, the Health In surance Institute reported to day . According to National Kid ney Foundation data, 10,000 persons will need a transplant this year; only 1,000 will get one. Eight million people in this country suffer from some type of kidney or urinary tract dis ease about 3.3 million are not even aware of it. Overall, an estimated 60,000 f people are expected to die from f a kidney ailment this year. To date, over 5 million peo ,) have offered to donate a kidney to someone who needs I Hef. The proviso here is that they give up the kidney after they are dead and that it is in good enough condition to reuse. But there are persons who donate a single kidney to a relative or friend while they are still alive. This, too, is more compli cated than it seems because the kidney donor may not have the right type of kidney for a par ticular individual even if he or she is closely related. Then, when the kidney is donated, who pays the doctor bill for the donor? Normally, according to the Institute, the party who is re ceiving the kidney will pay the donor's hospital expenses. Traditionally, health insur ance policies have contained an "accident or sickness" definition which did not permit coverage for voluntary acts of the in sured.

The HIAA puts it this way: ' "In the final analysis, it is recomrneNed that the donor be recognized as having an ill ness and that his expenses be the respJWjsfbility of his in surer. A key reason for this change in thinking is that often the ex penses of a kidney patient run so high that his insurance may hot be enough to handle two hospital bills. For example, before some one with a kidney ailment can match up with the "right" kid ney he may have to be kept alive with the aid of a dialysis machine. And the cost of a 12 month stay in a hospital with a dialysis machine averages more than $30,000. Still most of thestlSsts will be covered under Medicare by July 1.
