GOING TO BE LATE ON YOUR INCOME TAX?

If, like most taxpayers, you file on a calendar-year basis, you know the deadline for your Federal return is April 15th. (You're supposed to mail it in time to reach the District Director of Internal Revenue by that date; however, many IRS offices will accept a return as on time if it is postmarked before midnight on the official due date.)

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BUY AND SELL STOCKS?

Very little, considering the money at stake. Brokers' commissions on the New York Stock Exchange and the other national exchanges range from a minimum of less than one per cent to a maximum of six per cent of the dollar amount involved in the transaction. The exact figure depends upon the number of shares traded, and their price. For 100 shares of an average-price stock, it works out to about one per cent-- and that's probably about the lowest commission charged anywhere for the transfer of valuable property.

HOW CAN YOU GET AN ESTIMATE ON A HOME IMPROVEMENT JOB?

As a starter, know exactly what you want. If you have only a vague picture of the changes you're looking for, you open the door to competing bids based on very different specifications. Consider kitchen counter edging, a seemingly small thing: there could be a $150 difference between a bid based on metal trim, and an estimate which figures in the more costly roll-formed plastic laminate edge.

HE LIKES TO COOK

In most of his movie roles, Fred MacMurray would look as out of place in a kitchen as a plumber at a literary tea. Fact is, the only time he recalls being filmed in a kitchen throughout his long career was with Carole Lombard in "Hands Across the Table" (Circa 1935).

For horizontal tucks (see sketch), add about two inches to length. Sew Roman shade tape or twill tape to back of shade and insert heavy cord through tape rings so shade can be raised or lowered.

THE NEWEST CAMPERS AND CAMP TRAILERS

It's a safe bet that 1965 will be the biggest camping and traveling year ever. Over 33 million campers hit the road in 1964, and conservative estimates indicate that this number will reach over 34 million in 1965. These figures represent a total over twice that of 1956. Some campers will use tents, some station wagons, but most of them will use some type of camper vehicle (over 750,000 are now in use).

ARE CAR INSURANCE "EXTRAS" WORTH THE MONEY?

Perhaps not-- but be careful what you call an "extra." No experienced driver, for instance, would get behind the wheel without liability insurance, as protection against suits and claims for injuries or property damage he might cause. But what about the other items in the insurance agent's portfolio-- coverage with labels like "collision," "comprehensive," "medical payments," "uninsured motorist," "towing and labor costs"?

STAYING HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELING ABROAD

The first step toward safeguarding your health in foreign countries-- and simultaneously protecting the health of other people-- is to be properly immunized. Everyone who applies for an American passport is automatically given a small yellow booklet labeled "International Certificates of Vaccination." You should take this document to your family physician no later than three months before your scheduled departure-- it may take that long for some immunizations to attain their full effectiveness, and you should be fully protected before leaving.
