New York (CNS) Willie Mays—
the boy wonder of the Giants in
bygone years — is having such a
disappointing year so far that
few newspaper folks hang around
Has marriage caused Willie to
lose his baseball touch? Or is it
just the general sluggishness of
the Giants as a whole that is con
tagious enough to catch on to
Even Giant manager Bill Rig
ney is completely perplexed by
wonderless Willie. “Frankly he
puzzles me.” It looked for a while
last week that he was coming on.
But now he has slipped back a
gain. Willie is swinging as hard
as ever, except that the ball is
going straight up in the air in
stead of soaring toward the fences
as it once did. — All in all, the
Giants are mired in the cellar
without too much hope.

In addition to Pastor Wittmer’s
message, listeners will hear an

Hour activities in Great Britain.
Speaker on the report will be the

In his message over the Nation

will point out “day after day God

thee, and be gracious unto thee;
The Lord lift up His countenance
upon thee, and give thee peace,”
is the assurance of providence
and protection and pardon and is
also the guarantee of peace, “the
peace of God that passes all un
In addition, Pastor Wittmer will
say, the benediction guarantees
the “privilege of coming before
the face of the King.”
“What God has for you is not
merely psychology. It is the cer

keeps His word,” the St. Louis
pastor will conclude.

For That Perfect Vacation
It’s here at last! And we’re speaking of that longed-for vacation
time that seemed so far away when we trudged through the snow and
slush just a few months ago. What’s your choice this year? A trip to
the seashore? Perhaps a week or two of getting back to nature among
the mountain greenery, or does a rustic cabin near a sparkling lake
sirixe your iancyr wo matter
what your selection, this is the
time to relax—and take a prob
ably much-needed breather.
A well-planned vacation is a
happy vacation. You’ll find life
much simpler if you make a
/eally complete list of every pos
sible need before you lock the
front and back door and start off.
And this year, something new
should be an important part of
your list — a new all-purpose
liquid detergent called Wisk.
The hot-water supply at your
vacation spot may not be as de
pendable as back home—or if you
are really getting back to nature,
it may be very limited indeed.
But there will always be some
laundry to be done and dishes
have an annoying habit of having
to be washed two or three times
each day. Swim suits should be
washed and rinsed after each
dunking — whether in salt or
fresh water. And the perfect an
swer to keeping life simple is
this new blue liquid detergent.
Wisk is pre-dissolved, and goes
to work instantly in any kind of
water—hot or cold, salt or fresh
—in a way impossible with any
powdered product. It comes in
neat pint and quart cans thf.t
will not add additional bulk to
your probably already overloaded
luggage. And you will find that
it is the only cleaning product
that you need, no matter where
you choose to spend your well
JPerhaps you have a vacation
cabin that needs to be put in
order after being closed since
last year. Once again, Wisk is the
answer for cleaning everything
from the kitchen sink to floors
and window-sills—with no extra
boxes or bottles or other cleaners.
Remember, a vacation is sup
posed to bo fun and the simpler
you keen tho necessary duviss,
the more time you’ll have with

He says that flights of the wing

holes in the lumber inside or
outside of the buildings indi
cates the need for control mea
sures . But he warns home own
ers against unscrupulous control
operators who attempt to fright

several reliable operators and
comments that since termite

Why 365 Day*?
AH because of a river, there are
365 days in a yeks. When the ancient

sun, they decided to reckon a year
by the 365 days between the highest '
points of the Nile flood.
DEDUCT FROM TAX
TREE DAMAGE DUE
TO BAD WEATHER
Storm damages to trees may
be deducted in figuring your
income tax, advises the National
Arborist Association. The dam
age is deducted under casulty
The code allows a deduction
equal to the difference in the
value of your property just be
fore and after the storm. The
claim must be entered the year it
occurred, and it must also be sub
stantiated by the estimate of a
qualified person, such as a local
tree expert and a real estate ap
praiser. Any insurance payment
already received because of tha
loss must be deducted from the
total. Trees shrubs and lawns
all are deductible if a true loss
has been substained. The burden
of proof is on the property owner.
Rot in trees is caused by action
on the wood of the tree by fungi,
according to the National Arborist
Association. The fungi are low
forms of life whose threads pene
trate the wood and break it down,
resulting in decay.
The softest American tree is

of Arizona and New Mexico, says
