RODGERS Extension Home Furnishings and Art Specialist University dk.Otorgla College of Agriculture Mattresses are an important item in any nome furnishings budget. But young and old, those who buy them know far too little about mattresses and springs. Maybe this check list will help you if you are in the market for a new mattress. Length should be at least six or eight inches more than the height of the person. The stand ard length is 75 inches. Should , ours be longer? Width needed for an adult is a minimum of 39 inches. A double bed allows only 27 inches per person, the same width as a standard baby crib. Should you choose twins beds or an extra wide one? Softness or firmness is an Individual preference. Play "Goldilocks” and actually lay down on the bed to find the mat tress "just right" for you. You can’t Judge by sitting on edge. A good mattress is firm but resilient. It supports the body evenly. These are things one can actually check when shopping for a mattress. There are other facts it is well to know so you can interpret what the salesman tells you. springs are the backbone of innerspring mattresses--not the number of springs but the gauge of wire and number of turns put in a coil. In the coil construction the ratio of the top and bottom coils to the center will influence the life of the mattress. Although large outer and small inner diameters may feel nice and soft at first, they are not durable. In a six-turn or hour glass shaped coil, the tip and bottom turns provide resilience; the inner turns afford firmness. On top of the springs should be several layers of padding. The first one is usually of bur lap and it sometimes has a wire meshing woven through it. This keeps the second layer, sisal, from working down into the spring unit. It is further cush ioned with layers of felted cotton and curled hair or other materi al such as shredded or solid sheets of foam—either synthe tic or natural. This whole unit or "sand wich" is placed in a fabric known as ticking. Ticking may be tufted quilted or smooth. Tufting is now more often done with buttons than raw cotton tufts and quilting is better look ing and more comfortable. Smooth finishes are best and most easily judged. In addition to the mattress, box springs are ordinarily used in our homes today. The bed spring is really the foundation on which you sleep. It supplies about one-third of the total resiliency when used with an innerspring mattress and more when used with solid types. Coils of a box spring are mounted on a wood or metal base and covered with a cush ion of several layers of padding very much like the mattress had. Ticking usually matches the mattress, too. The springs may be of the same number and gauge as the mattress or they may be made slightly firmer where less resiliency is de sired. Mattress and springs usually contain very similar materials and the cost for each is similar. A good mattress with normal wear and care may be expected to last 10 years.

Sparky says: If Rre Strikes Your Home... GIT OUT of the house the minute you discover it or smell smoke! ALWAYS be ready to use different escape routes from any room in your house! TIST doors before opening. If doors are hot, block them with furniture or wet mattresses to keep out smoke and gases. Get out another way! NEVER jump from upper-story windows except as a last resort! Wait for firemen. HOLD your breath if you have to make a dash through smoke and flame! REMEMBER, the air is usually better near the floor in a smoke-filled room! CALL the fire department at once! They know how to fight fire. Don’t waste your time or your life trying to fight a fire, unless it’s so small you’re sure you can control it with the right extinguisher. DON’T ever go back to a burning building for any reason! Smoke and fire gases from even the smallest fire can be deadly. GET medical treatment at once, if you’re burned or exposed to fire and smoke! Seemingly minor burns or smoke inhalation can have fatal results. DON'T GIVE HUE » PLACE TO START! Mi Mh Good housekeeping lesson to learn earlys Only Electricity Provides Flameless Water Heating Modern mothers teach their daughters; The more hot water you need, the more you need a quick-recovery electric water heater. It supplies gallons and gallons of hot water without combustion. No by-products. No fumes. No soot. No noise. No heat wasted up a vent or flue. (Because there is no flue, your electric water heater goes where you want it —even in a clothes closet or under the stairs.) The electric water heater has a long life. Electric units work only when needed to heat water. No continuous expenditure of energy, no flame to deteriorate metal surfaces. •Special rates can make the cost amazingly low. Ask us how. Then make an electric water heater your next step toward total- electric living. You’ll be glad you did. Auk how we eun pay up to $200 toward wiring your home so you can live better electrically.

L. Livingston. This fall the owner should make sure the tree receives about five gallons of water every seven to ten days. A good mulching of the tree will help conserve moisture. * * * HOUSEWIFE HAS BIG CHOICE Some supermarkets offer as many as 5,000 different foods.
