Books Perfect
When it comes to selecting chil

most grown-ups are confused as
to what types of books to choose.
Modern children have been con
ditioned, mainly through television,
to enjoy stories about Wyatt Earp,
tales of outer space, and hair
raising accounts of crime and hor
ror while adults recall their
childhood reading of such tales as
those about Dorothy from the Land
of Oz, Rumpelstiltskin and Aladdin.

Toy Guidance Council.
Science kits which reproduce fa
mous inventions of the past, such
as Alexander Graham Bell's first
telephone and Edison's electric
light are included in exciting
educational kits.
Dozens of playroom projects
based on electronics can help serve
as stepping-stones for scientific ca
reers later. Other kits reproduce
the manufacture of plastics, and
a new zoom microscope that can
be adapted to viewing large or
small objects will thrill junior bio
logists and other young folk.
Realism brings a new purpose
into play with live action replicas
of building equipment, made of
heavy gauge steel. New thrills
await the operators of a sturdy
new mobile crane complete with
two hand-operated levers that con

and that position the boom.
Other new and exciting novel
ties include a hydraulic sanitation
truck; an airlines lift truck, and a
ramp side truck, the latest in light
delivery trucks. New in the indus

Do Extra Duty
"Portable" dining and snack
time areas are provided for to
day's living, thanks to some talent
ed innovations in table design.
Sucking and nesting tables stay
out of the way until you need them.
Then you pull them out quickly to
give firm footing for a platter full
of turkey or a bowl of popcorn.
You can do the same trick with cof
fee tables, formed of square or
wedge shaped units, that "go to
pieces" on demand.
Tables that "flip" are another
good investment. They include the
game tables that open to double
their size and coffee tables that
flip up to dining level, then open.
A sofa table in an open area make
a good buffet.
