haw always answered my
daughter's questions frankly
and thought I had a good, dose
relationship with bet.
But just the other day I
found her in her room reading
a trashy paperback book. Just
glancing through it I saw words
pertaining to sex that were
straight out of the gutter! Iam
so shocked and hurt that she
would read this kind of filth.
She is only 13. What did I do
Dear Mis. P.C.:
Please try not to be upset
over the book you found. It is
natural for adolescents to be
curious about this type of
reading material, no matter
how well educated or how
dose to their parents they may
be. Kids hear others talk about
a book and feel they must read
it too, because they think they
may learn something about sex
they don't already know, or
simply because it is the "in"
thing to do.
Perhaps one reason you are
worried is because your
daughter is so young. It is
difficult for those of us who
are. parents today to realize
that children become
sophisticated at a much earlier
age than we did, because of the
movies, television and
magazines to which they have
been exposed all their lives.
Therefore, even though we
may feel that the child is too
young to know about sex, it is
questions as honestly as
possible when they are asked.
Many parents might find
answering their children's
questions easier if they read
Dr. David Reuben's book

Wanted to Know About Sex"

discussion which might help

How To Stretch Your Car's Gas Mileage
The nationwide energy crista is upon
us, and it's testing the Ingenuity of car
owners. In one sense, it's even creating
a little nostalgia. Not since the World
War 11 days of gas rationing have mo
torists focused so heavily on stretching
Those who drive high-horsepower gas-
guzzlers are feeling the greatest pinch
as some service stations have curtailed
their operating hours and others have
put a 10 gallon limit on gas purchases.
But engineers at the Wix Corporation
Technical Laboratory in Gastonia, N. C,
say there are some basic steps every
motorist can take to improve his gas
mileage and, in the bargain, make his
car run smoother.
First, they say, car owners should
change the air filter on their car every
10,000 miles or with every engine tune-
up, whichever occurs, soonest, wix en
gineers point out that a Clogged air filter
can decrease a car's mileage per gallon
by as much as one-third.
They also suggest that motorists
avoid running their car with toss than
half a tank of gas. Oil refineries, in com
mon with their customers, are scraping
the bottom of their tanks these days ,
and that sometimes results in pumping
contaminants into the gas line. This
kind Of thing normally wouldn't occur
but as fuel levels drop to unprecedented
lows, rust, dirt and other contaminants
sometimes get into gas lines and event
ually into your oar.
Your car's gas tank also can -produce
rust, catch dirt and trap water as it
grows older, and this is another reason
to avoid running the tank below the
half-full level. Modern automobile gas
filters are workhorses when it comes to
removing contaminants from the gas
line before, they get into the engine
itself, but the increased flow of contam
inants tends to plug filters more quickly
and shorten their lives.
Unfortunately, there are no warning
signals for this kind of fitter failure.
When the filter gets completely clogged,
it simply shuts off the gas flow. In re
cent laboratory testa on filters made by
Wix and other major manufacturers,
Wix engineers found some that became
clogged after less than 100 miles of us
age with commercial gasoline.
The best protection against finding
yourself stranded as a result of an un
timely gas filter failure, engineers say,
is to carry a spare in the glove compart
ment of your car. This is especially im
portant if you don't have a standard
car. Service stations and repair garages
dont always hive the right filter in
stock for your car, so it's much safer
to have your own on hand in case of
Your car's oil filter has no direct in
fluence on gas mileage, but engineers
stress that keeping your cart engine
clean is the most important single as
pect of good oar care,
Crankcase buildup will reduce engine
efficiency and increase consumption of
oil and gas, the engineers Point out, so
dirty oil filters can exert a strong indir
ect influence on gas mileage; The oil
filter should be changed every 4,000 to
6,000 miles or every time the crankcase
is drained and refilled with new oil.
A complete change-out of the three
basic filters air, fuel and oil on
the modern passenger car amounts to
only about $10, so regular filter changes
can more than pay for themselves in im
proved gas mileage and smoother en
gine operation. - .
