Clunked up with graphite residue from the tapes you've played, dirty cartridge player heads can set up effective sound barriers to your listening pleasure. That's why most manufacturers recommend that they be cleaned regularly to insure continuous fidelity and trouble-free machine opera tion. But. how does the guy (or gal) with two left hands go about doing this'.' On those machines that have easily accessible player heads, all you need is a Q-lip and a safe chemical cleaner to swab away the brownish accumula tion of graphite. Or, you can use a special head-cleaning car tridge to do the job the easy way, by just nipping it through your machine.

There is a vase or a figurine and a plate for calling cards in front of the mirror; chairs on either side of the table, chest or console are op tional. If this describes your entrance hall it badly neeids a striking, all-over pattern on the walls; a home, like a show, ought to "come on strong." A second kind of impression an entry can give is impersonal J to the point of being majestic. In hails which can be described as "foyers," either a scenic wallpaper or separate panels seem to be indicated. Low benches between tall lighting fixtures usually complete this type of entrance. A third type of impression is leas standardized. We might call it the ultra-personal approach. Some homemakers see their i entrances at a preview of the I rooms beyond.

Finally, it passes through (SB's unique Spine-Kin cooling coils, where it is given an "air wash". The many thousands of tiny interim-shed "fingers" of the Spine-Kin coils, which are covered with water produced by the cooling and dehumidifi cat ion process, actually trap fine airborne particles. These particles are then washed down into the Custom Supcrthrusl's drip pan and disposed of out ol'-doors. Another feature of this unit is an air thrust selector (hat allows the user to custom tailor the air flow to his needs: gentle, for close-in individual cooling; strong, lo jet air deep into a room or even lo distant And. lo eliminate those sleepy, nocturnal trips lo ad just the air conditioner, the Custom Superthrust incorpo rates a Coml'omalic control that actually anticipates com fort requirements. Once the dial is set on the C'oml'omatic position, the unit does the rest automatically. The air conditioner operates at high fan speed and maximum cooling until the desired tem perature level is reached. It then switches to the low, quiet Slumber Speed and maintains this setting.

What they contain will depend on their size and the appropriate furnishings that are available. Every entry should try to include the following: a table or a chest for a bowl of flowers and possibly a lamp, at least one chair so that people can put on rubbers, a mirror to check their appearance, if they care to, and either a coal tree or an easily accessible closet. If the entry is a separate room, the wallcovering for a modest period type of entrance poses no problem. Aside from anti [ cipating the character of the other rooms, it only needs a slightly more festive quality of its own.

Takes Over Small Pox Anti-Serum Distribution WASHINGTON, D. C. - The diatrtbution of Vaccinia Immune Globulin (VIG), a rare blood product used to combat severe reactions bom smallpox vaccinations, has been turned over to U. S. Public Health Service by the American National Red Cross which began the distribution program in 1953. In announcing the change, Dr. Tibor J. Greenwalt, medi cal director of the ARC Blood Program, said over 18,000 five-milliliter vials of VIG have been provided without charge to physicians in this country and throughout the world dur ing the past 17 years. Many of the rush calls for the precious serum were for children who had infected their eyes or other parts of their bodies after scratching or touching their vaccina tions, Dr. Greenwalt said. Some of these infections were so massive that loss of sight and even death would have re sulted had the serum not been available in time. Because of the scarcity of VIG and the fact that it must be given very soon after the infection starts, the Red Cross HOW TO GOARD AGAINST PYORRHEA Beyond the age of 35, the average American loses over twice as many teeth to gum disease as to decay. To this jolting statistic of the American Dental Association, the World Health Organization adds that in the United States, "almost the entire adult popu lation" is affected in some de gree by periodontal (gum) dis ease —comm on I y called "pyorrhea." One of the insidious things about such disorders is that they are seldom painful in the early stages and are therefore easily overlooked or neglected. The first hint of pyorrhea is usually inflamed or bleeding gums. Later, the teeth may become loose in their sockets, making normal chewing almost impossible. Finally, even with out any defect in the teeth themselves, they may fall out one by one. The causes of periodontal disease are complicated and not fully understood even to day. Most recently, research workers have discovered that certain types of gum disease can be transmitted from one hamster to another. This sug gests that pyorrhea may be spread by an external micro organism—possibly through contaminated silverware or dishes! One sensible precaution is to guard your family against germs the way any safe restau rant protects its patrons: by washing dishes (preferably in an automatic machine) in very hot water spiked with a high phosphate detergent. A high concentration of phosphate is important. The phosphate component, found in brand name detergents, contributes materially to cutting down germ levels, thus reducing the possibility of cross-infection. For the same reason, if your date's gums look suspiciously red, it might be best to settle for a good-night handshake. It's better to miss a kiss than risk a loose tooth. In general, regular visits to your family doctor or dentist will help to head off pyorrhea or at least to reduce the dam age. For instance, one estab lished contributing factoi —a vi tamin C deficiency—can be cor rected by having your physi cian recommend a vitamin sup plement or a vitamin-rich diet. Your dentist is the man to see about rectifying other con ditions known to be linked to gum disease. One of these is the formation of tartar, which appears to provide a haven for bacteria injurious to the gums. Similarly,' irritations which can blossom into pyorrhea may be caused by teeth that do not meet properly, are' badly ™ E STUOENT „ » ~W UNIFORMS WERE MODIFIED TO FLLWFLFE MHL PERMIT FREER MOVEMENT WHEN SFLLE J DAILV DRILL, SVMNASTICS AND GAMES WERE INTRODUCED INTO THE CURRICULUM OF THE NEW SCHOOLS ■ X / THAT CROPPED UP IN THE lO7O'S. ■ WON'T I^TO^S.'CHSXS MJ THAT REOUIBED UNI- 6)1- 'II MR I FORMS PREFERRED V\°lC SMOCKED DRESSES VAI IN THE logo's THE PEA JACKET AND StCIRT COMBINATION WAS POPULAR.THE J>OCET BROUGHTA* !X* Vi —F GIRLS STILL FURTHER /JL!' \ I AWAV FROM WOMEN'S \XL A " 1 \ ' FASHION AND NEARER THE \ N A \ / APPAREL OF THEIR BROTHERS.

M. P| FFJ handled distribution from its blood centers in 14 cities throughout the United States, with a volunteer physician consultant In each city being responsible for approving all requests and advising on the dosage. Some 800 vials of the pro duct also were sent to ten foreign countries in response to urgent requests from physi cians, Dr. Greenwalt noted. Since Vaccinia Immune Globulin can only be taken from the blood of a person re cently vaccinated for smallpox, the Red Gross for many years obtained most of its supply from young men newly re cruited into military service, a source considerable diminished during the past few years by the military's urgent need for blood for the wounded in Vietnam. "For this reason, and be cause a commercial laboratory has now been licensed to pro duce VIG," Dr. Greenwalt said, "the Red Cross is relin quishing its role in the program and will devote its funds and energies to increased research aimed toward the development of new blood products and placed or bite against the gums. A faulty filling also can be a culprit. All of these conditions can be remedied by time well spent in the dentist's chair. However, one of the most effective and simplest preven tives is proper, do-it-yourself tooth-brushing. That's because pyorrhea can be triggered or aggravated by food particles lodged between the teeth or around the gum line. For the best results, the World Health Organization lists these pointers: • Brush regularly with a motion that reaches into as many crevices as possible and stimulates the gums without damaging them. • Use a simple toothbrush instead of a fancy one. • Massage the gums with a rubber stimulator to help keep them healthy. • Brush for at least three minutes. • Rinse the mouth after brushing to wash out loose food particles that might other wise settle back into tooth crevices. A study of English school children in their early teens showed that there was 50 per cent less gum disease among those who brushed their teeth regularly than among the irreg ular brushers. And here's a tip for the sweet-toothed: Munching an apple at the end of a meal will help to clean the teeth, exer cise the gums and control most forms of gum disease before it get* out of hand. totter methods of long-term blood preservation." Responsibility for the VIG program hu been given to the U. S. Public Health Service Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Ga., which will handle the distribution through its quarantine offices in Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Or leans, Jamaica, N. Y. (Kennedy Airport), and Seattle, Wash. Red' Cross blood centers al ready have given more than 525 vials of VIG to those offices, and the 14 physician consultants awho assisted the Red Cross in the program have volunteered to help Public Health Service in the same way. The Red Cross VIG resposi tories wore located in Atlanta, Ga., Madison, Wise., Waco, Tex., Cleveland, San Jose, Calif., Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Boston, St. Louis, Great Falls, Mont, Portland, New York City, Tucson and Washington, D.

Conyers stated that "justice has been served by this rever say in the decision. Her entry should never have been barred."
