Furniture in Packbarn
Refinished, 'Recycled'

:ling is mighty
with Mrs. Odell
Villines of the Hurdle
Mills Extension Home
makers Club, Person
County.
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.

Winter Driving
During this winter's icy and slippery driving conditions,
follow these safety precautions. 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.
And. when going over the crest of a hill and starting down,
reduce speed to a minimum, put the car in low gear and
pump the brakes to keep speed down.

Obesity experts agree that the best dieting formula
is simply to "eat less and exercise more. 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

don't underestimate the importance of regular exercise. Even

10c each from the same
source (stock numbers 0100
1171 and 0100-0815, respec
tively). 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.

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

'Me and Mrs. Jones,' which, by
the way, came on December 1,
while I was celebrating a birth
day." I had never gotten a
gold record before, though
many of my records had sold
well. But just the idea that
tell. "Ill talk about many
things that have happened to
me in my lifetime, but 'Mrs.
Jones' doesn't mean any more
than anyone else's 'Mrs. Jones."

people really buy that many
copies of one record scared me.'
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. "I

think the reason banks that is
because of my high range. The
male singers who had the same
range I did when I was go wing
up didn't do that much for as.
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.

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.

ance policies have contained an

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.
