CAR INSURANCE--IS THERE ANY WAY BUT UP?

If you haven't heard at least one story of woe about increasing auto insurance premiums lately, you probably have been out of the country-- or at least not reading your paper. One of the most common complaints is that auto insurance premiums have risen steadily in the past ten years until they now stand about 55 percent higher than they were in 1956.

HELP YOUR CHILD LEARN MORE... BETTER... FASTER

Your children are learning all the time: they learn much more and they learn much faster than you do. Indeed, you can't stop them from learning. What you mean when you say "They don't learn" is really, "They learn the wrong things." Instead of learning long division, they learn how to get along with (or protect themselves against) the teacher, or how to get the goat of the kid at the next table.

A QUICK, INEXPENSIVE WAY TO SKIDPROOF ANY CAR!

Would you like your car equipped so it's less likely to slide on wet or icy pavement, stops quickly without fishtailing, and moves in a straight line on soft shoulders or in gusty cross winds? If your answer is an emphatic "yes," then your car is a prime candidate for an unusual stabilizing device now on the market.

ALIGNMENT AND WHEEL BALANCE--HERE ARE THE FACTS!

Usually the first tip-off to an impending alignment job is hard steering or excessive tire wear. Steering difficulty can show up in several ways. You may have to exert brute strength to turn the car (especially if it doesn't have power steering). Or the wheels may fail to return to the straightahead position after you negotiate a turn. Or your car may lack stability at highway speeds.

THIS HOUSE WAS BUILT FOR PEACE AND QUIET

To see what we mean, study the plan. Living and sleeping areas are buffered by the basement stairs, master bath, closets and a short hallway. The bedrooms are clustered together, yet none of them shares a wall with another or with the living room-- so no one in your family will lose sleep over a late bridge game or the Saturday morning cartoons.

PLANT TWO MONTHS OF SPRING COLOR NOW

You don't have to settle for fleeting dabs of spring color if you choose spring-flowering bulbs whose blossoms span the time from the first thaw to the first peony bloom. Varieties of crocus, hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, iris, and alliums guarantee you this sure-fire spread of color-- but remember, you must plant the bulbs this fall.

EIGHT WAYS TO MAKE YOUR HOUSE LIVE BETTER. EACH COSTS UNDER $500 IN MATERIALS!

Here's home improvement on a budget. For $500-- much less in some cases-- you can buy the makings for such amenities as a fireplace, more storage, a bedroom vanity, or second kitchen. The $500 doesn't include labor charges because you'll want to do some of the work yourself-- but for many of these projects you'll need assistance from a plumber, electrician, or some other skilled professional. So pick your project, then pick your man; he'll give you an estimate to round out the bill.

THE MAN NEXT DOOR

Divorcee Elaine Cowan likes to tell about a tiny water animal known as the rotifer, whose females can produce without males. Whole colonies can thrive without any male rotifer. There's a moral here-- but Christine notes that Elaine is hardly the one to be pointing it up.
