CAN YOU SAVE ANY MONEY ON HOME REPAIR SERVICES?

Yes, indeed, and the way to start is to cut out unnecessary service calls, operate your appliances properly, and apply a little stitch-in-time preventive maintenance to forestall king-size repair bills later on.

DOES IT PAY TO MAKE A SMALL INVESTMENT IN REAL ESTATE?

One common first-time real estate investment consists of renting out your old house when you move into a new one. Sometimes you may be pushed into renting because you can't sell your home for what it cost you. But if you rent it at least a year and then sell it, you often can treat any lower selling price as a tax loss. Meanwhile, of course, the rental helps increase the dollar value of your equity and perhaps even pays off the mortgage, while continuing to take care of upkeep, property taxes, and mortgage interest.

WHO PAYS WHEN A VISITOR GETS HURT ON YOUR PROPERTY?

It depends on who the visitor is and what, if anything, you did to protect him. Your legal responsibility is greatest when a child has been invited to your home. His life and safety are then wholly entrusted to your care, and the law requires you to safeguard him from even the most commonplace mishaps that might befall a child. But say the child is uninvited-- that he is trespassing on your property. Even then, the laws of many states hold you responsible for his safety under the "attractive nuisance" rule.

FARM BELLS AND SCHOOL BELLS

The agricultural revolution with its trend toward almost complete mechanization and its continuing displacement of farm hands by machines is relegating the age-old farm bell to the limbo of the past. No longer, except in increasingly isolated cases, does its sonorous voice summon farm laborers to lunch or sound the end of a day's toil.

WHAT RECORDS CAN DO FOR YOUR CHILD

The most important thing that you as a parent can remember in introducing your child to music is that you cannot make a child enjoy your musical taste in recordings. For instance, it would be foolish to imagine that a five-year-old would get the same enjoyment that his parents might from a Wagnerian soprano.

HOW TO TALK ABOUT MONEY WITH A DOCTOR

Considering how budget-conscious most families are, it's remarkable how often they hesitate to broach to a doctor the subject of his medical fees. It's still more remarkable how often the doctor also avoids the subject if he possibly can. As a result, the relationship of doctor and patient is sometimes ruffled needlessly by misunderstandings about money.

WHAT IF THINGS GO WRONG WITH AN FHA HOUSE?

The crucial date is September 2, 1964. If you bought the house before that date, the FHA can help you only up to a point-- by putting pressure on the builder-- and this only if you bought the home new. But if you bought the house on or since that date, the FHA is authorized to pay the repair bill for any major defect "that seriously affects the livability of the property."
