Vegetable Fuel Oils
Vegetable oils, abundant in Bra
zil, are being used to contribute to
the solution of the fuel problem in
that country. The idea of using
vegetable oil as a substitute for pe
troleum is not a recent one. Ever
since mineral oil began to get
scarce, experiments have been
made in different countries with oil
of vegetable origin.
Second only to the elephant in
size, the hippopotamus often weighs
more than four tons. With a life- |
span of more than 40 years, the
hide becomes also two inches thick,
alone weighing as much as 500
pounds. It can walk for miles on
the bottom of a stream, coming up
for air every six or seven minutes.

^tattlers Won’t Tell •
Popular supposition has it that
the number of rattles borne by a
snake indicates its age in years. A
new rattle is required each time
that a snake sheds its skin and sev
eral rattles may be added annually,
the California Fish and Game com
m^sion reports. The studies indi
cate that young snakes in their year
of growth gain, besides the original
button, two to four rattles. Medium
sized snakes, during their second or
third year, often gain two rattles
annually. Adults most frequently
add only one rattle a year, but
sometimes gain two.

^ By Fn»tw Aimwrtli nj ]
We've just finished housecleaning
at our home, getting ready for the
holiday season . . . and during the
process we did a bit of re-deco
rating as well. The living and din
ing rooms were re-papered in one
of the new deep colored patterns \
and we transformed a storage
closet to a tiny combination pow
der room and dr.n.
I was skeptical about thfc dark
wall paper at first . . . but an inte
rior decorator friend suggested
using mirrors on the walls to re
flect the white woodwork and win
dow light. Well, I tried it — and
the effect is really beautiful!
When we discovered the visual
tricks that mirrors could perform,
my husband and I began experi
menting and decided to remodel the
closet into a powder room and den.
The room was long but narrow ... .
io we prepared the long walls with
» gay plaid wall paper and paint
ed the end walls. Then we found
a modern desk, chests and dressing
table of the same height . . . and
formed them into a single unit cov
ering one complete side wall.
Above this furniture we placed
four large mirrors, and that tiny
den seemed to widen as if by
magic! Those mirrors reflected the
entire room — and it actually look
ed twice as large! It’s surprising
how mirrors do brighten a room,
isn’t it? My decorator friend said
they used them for decorating and
brightening every room in the
house ... I was interested, too, in
her remark that most mirror
manufacturers use Pittsburgh
Plate Glass because of its beauty
and true reflections. She said that
for a true reflection a mirror must
be made of plate glass . . . anc
told me that those I had selectee
were. Because of that fatt I an
doubly satisfied with my "Mirrol
Decorating” — in fact, I am plan*
ning to include mirrors among mj
Christmas gift selections.

The retail cost of building mate*

their production, says a Twentieth
Century fund report. Used houses
account roughly for three fourths of
annual residential sales and 10 per
cent of the total new dwellings be
fore the war were produced under
public auspices. About 40 per cent
of the communities in trie United
States do not have building codes.

Negro farmers operate 682,000
farms, according to the last cen

States and occupy 30,800,000 acres.
Negro farmers are full owners of
