Let's DUMP those property laxes for schools

It now appears we may have to find better ways to finance public schools. Better, that is, than the present reliance on local property taxes. Twice in recent months and many times in the past, Better Homes and Gardens has charged that the local property-tax method of paying for public schools is uneconomical-- and unfair. Finally it looks as though the nation's courts have gotten the message.

STRAIGHTEN UP AND GET A GRIP ON YOUR DRIVING

"Don't slouch in your seat," Mom used to tell you. It was good advice then, and still is, especially if you're slouching in the driver's seat of a high-powered car.

GOOD NIGHT DRIVING IS NO ACCIDENT

Billowing snow, ice-paved streets and frosted windows all contribute to hazardous winter driving in the North. But there's yet another hazard to winter driving that can kill you, no matter where you live: the long winter nights.

WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS WHEN YOU BUY A PLANE TICKET?

Most airlines make a point of giving you the most efficient and personal service they can from the time you buy your ticket to the time you reach your destination. However, there can be problems-- especially in peak flying times, such as holiday weekends. It's a good idea to know what you have a right to expect if there's a foul-up, as well as what responsibilities you have as a ticket holder.

SEVEN KEY QUESTIONS ABOUT MEDICARE

Your own adventure in the CARIBBEAN

Go to the Caribbean, and for the first couple days it's enough just to flop down on the beach, consume rum punches and write postcards describing the weather to your freezing friends up north-- "It's 81 degrees in San Juan today, Harry"-- guaranteed to make them eat their hearts out. But believe it or not, that sort of thing gets boring after a time. There seem to be more boats than there are cars in the Caribbean: motor cruisers, catamarans, hydrofoils, houseboats-- everything from little Sunfish you can rent by the hour to yachts equipped for round-the-world voyages. Of the multitude of pleasures this armada provides, none is more refreshing than island-hopping under sail.

Often it seems impossible to get products fixed. Letters spew forth from computers, but no human being takes the time to write. Salespeople are indifferent. Company switchboards transfer us from one department to another, then cut us off the line altogether after 20 minutes of waiting. Too often, it's easier to give up than continue the quest for customer justice.
