Look: A Small Workbench "C'VEN a simple table can be * J made into a workbench. If there’s limited space, a small table, of the right height, will serve, or build a table just the size you want. It isn’t difficult with framing lumber, shiplap boards for a top and a working surface of Masonite ‘A” Tem pered Presdwood. Any way you look at it, the bulky workbenches of yesteryear have given way to a more com pact variety. Many are lea* than two feet w’da, for example, and some aren't over three feet long. Lots of good home workshop projects can be carried out just as successfully on a small work bench, or table fixed up like one. One ingredient most of them have in common—a tough, dur able working surface, usually Masonite Tempered Presdwood, which is popular for this use be cause it’s been found so satis , factory in industrial work < benches. If and when it wears out, just remove it and attach , another sheet of the material, available at most lumber yards. Even an apartment can have a workbench of the type illus trated. A portable one, which fits over a kitchen table when needed, : is made by framing a panel of j Tempered Presdwood with 1 by t-inch lumber (on edge), so it will ' slip over the table. For padding, i use an old blanket. Store the : portable workbench top in a * closet or utility room when it's i Dot being used. Woven Folding Screen llfANY uses exist in the home A for a folding screen. This useful device may be made in the home workshop. An unusual de sign, which any craftsman can make, is illustrated. The woven strips are Masonite Presdwood or Duolux, a hard board that’s smooth on both sides. Pliable yet strong, either material is interlaced between wooden dowels to achieve the pleasing effect shown. Top and bottom pieces of each panel are grooved to receive the hardboard strips. Full details of construction are given in a free plan which also explains how an opening may be left in one of the panels to fit the picture tube area of a televi sion set. Other uses for a screen with an aperature will occur to all. For example, the screen could be used to shut off a room with a sleeping baby. Without moving the screen, the mother could peak through the curtained opening to check up on the child. Youngsters could use the screen for "playing store.” To obtain the free plan, send a postal card to the Home Service Bureau, Suite 2037, 111 W.

Florida Orange Juice Travels Whether the lunchbox is bound for school, factory or office, it's a good idea to include Florida orange juice. Working men and women cs well as children need the energy and vitamin C the tasty juice provides. Put enough in the thermos container for a mid-morning pickup as well as a lunchtime treat. From every five pounds of Florida juice oranges you'll get at least one quart of flavorful juice, thanks to their thin skins. Protect your family’s health by serving orange juice daily.

League Stars In Crown Of Cook Who Uses Lean Beef Now is the time of lean beef, tho grass-fed, more economical beef that comes right from the range. Lean beef makes wonderful dishes when braised or simmered. Meat Pie is typical of this culinary school. The longer cooking characteristic of beef pie brings out all the rich flavor and juiciness of the lean beef. And remember, it contains the same high quality complete protein, B vitamins and essential minerals as costlier cuts. MEAT PIE VA pounds lean beef (boned 2 tablespoons chopped celery chuck, round, flank or rump) leaves 2 teaspoons salt 2 sprigs parsley XA teaspoon pepper 12 small white onions, peeled 3 tablespoons flour 3 medium carrots, scraped 1 tablespoon bacon drippings and quartered 3 cups water ’Biscuit topping , Have beef cut in 1-inch pieces.

Game Room-Guest Room AN UNUSUAL wall installa tion provides game room facil ties along with a guest closet and a combination desk and vanity. Modern and attractive, the vari ous units may he used separately or in combination. As shown in the left of the illustration, the game room-guest closet gives little clue as to its I I real purpose. A functional door, about 8 inches thick, has storage behind sliding panels of Masonite Ridgeline, and the closet interior is outfitted with “Peg-Board” panels and fixtures. Behind the central closed swinging doors, made of a new hardboard known as Panelply, are space for a TV set and books. At the right is the combina tion desk and vanity, including nicknack shelves. j Each of the three units can be built in the average home workshop. The principal materi-, als are lumber and Masonite I hardboards, the versatile do-it yourself materials that come in 1 a variety of finishes and sizes. They are available at lumber yards.

Trainer Shows Students How to Avert Car Crashes Whether an impending highway crash turns into another disaster 01 a near miss may depend on a driver’s behind-the-wheel prowess the instam after the emergency develops. In this split-second interval, many drivers act instinctively—and offer what they do is wrong. Some panic, let go ef the wheel. Still others freeze, do nothing. While thousands of youths art taught to drive in the nation’s high schools, they get precious little in struction in meeting highway emer gencies. Limited surveys of driver educa tion programs show that trained drivers have far fewer accidents that those with no training. Good as this record is, many safety educators like Dr. Herbert J. Stack of the Cen ter for Safety Education at New York University—believe it woulc be even better if drivers were taughi what to do in highway emergencies Staging crash situations with real cars to give student drivers practice in meeting emergencies on the high way would give any driver educa tion instructor nightmares. Obvi ously, such a program was out ol the question. Now, however, many student driv ers are receiving this vital training thanks to a revolutionary classroom training device called the jEtna Drivotrainer, which is being used in an increasing number of high schools throughout the country. No Risk in Drivotrainer But with the Drivotrainer, special movies that show a driver’s eye view of the road ahead bring the highways into the classroom where beginning drivers—without risk tc themselves or others—can learn how to avert a crash. In the Drivotrainer, which was developed by the iEtna Casualty and Surety Company, students take theii behind-the-whee! training In small model cars which they learn tc “drive” on highways shown on s CRASH DRILLS In Drivotralner classroom, where 15 students can be In structed at a time free of on-the-road driving hazards, teach students proper way to get out of common highway emergencies like this. huge movie screen the same as they would appear through the windshield of a real car. While the Drivotrainer course cov ers everything from basic skills like steering and shifting to more com plex techniques like parallel parking and making U and Y turns, one of the 19 special training films is de voted wholly to emergency training. In this part of the course, students experience a nerve-tingling series of potential accident situations on the Drivotrainer's movie highways and are drilled in the bchind-the-wheel maneuver* that will avoid a crash. By doing what cannot be done with conventional training methods, the Drivotrainer will help future motorists to do spontaneously the thing that will avert an accident when they’re on real highways. First used in the New York City schools, the Drivotrainer has since been introduced in Los Angeles, Oak Park, III., Oklahoma City, Dearborn and Lansing, Mich., Springfield, Mo., Fort Collins, Colo., Waterloo and Mason City, la., Freeport and Ea.,' Meadow, N.Y.
