their own citrus fruit trees, such
as oranzes. lemons. sxaDefruit and

fruit during December.
Historic sites, such as the Wright

Kill Devil Hills, near Kitty Hawk,
and the Fort Raleigh National His

Tips on Touring
By Carol tent""""""
Women' Travel Authority
Every year, car- travel gets
easier, more comfortable, more
convenient. Among the reasons
are the ingenious new devices de
signed to help both the driver and
his passengers. Wise travelers
know about these things and take
advantage of those that meet their
needs. Here are a few I've come
across in my recent travels.
To help you know what's hap
pening on the road behind you,
mere s a saiety
device consist
ing of two hing
ed wing mirrors
which can be
clamped to the
mirror inside
your car. This
gives you a wide
angle view,
reaching around
the car. both
left end right. A handy sports
man' kit bag; 'or men travelers
answers the problem of where to
put shoes and soiled linen. It has
false bottom, with an end open
ing which give access to sepa
rate compartment, for such items,
v For the distaff driver, there' are
several new s pa ee-and-time-saving
travel accessories. Among them is
a new expandable washcloth to
help the woman meet the crisis of
hotels and motels that don't pro
vide cloths. The new Washcloths
come-20 to a four-inch case, are
scented, expand to full size when
wet and are disposable. Always
practical are soap papers. Just
tear off ajeaf from, a purse-sized
foMer, hold it under Water, and
you have enough lather .to wash
both hands , and face, Another
handy item Is the midget-sized
toothbrush that folds into its own
case and can be carried in the
nurse. Some of these cases even
nave room for tooth powder.
