On the labor-saving equipment, 23 .percent of the women wanted automatic clothes dryers and 20 percent automatic wash,ing mach- ines, Dish-washers, small apptian- ces and home freezers were next in order.

OverLoaded Electrical System Lower Appliance Efficiency If your electric iron isn't heat- ing as fast as you think .i,t should. Or if it doesn't get as hot as you'd like -don't fuss at the aPpliance. you may be overloading the elect- ric circuit. But this won't happen if your fuses or circuit breakers are of the proper size. They warn you of overloads. Fuses and circuit breakers are protective devices. In the correct size, they let you know w~en ~u are putting too much of a burden on your wiring. The fuse will blow or the circuit breaker will pop open and cut off the current if too much load is demanded of the electric circuit. That's why it's dangerous to use a fuse too large for the circuit. You lose the very protection it was designed to give you. If you have too large a fuse checking a circuit, you can put too great a demand on it for the circuit to deliver. "ffnat's when the voltage drops; light bulbs grow dim and appliances won't operate at f, ull capacRy. Should the voltage drop low enough, mot.ors that turn on auto- matically--those on your furnace and refrigerator--may try to start but never develop running currenl speed. Instead they will churn a- way on high starting curren~ and burn themselves out. Motors on vacuum cleaners. electric mixers or fans will over- heat and may need to be repl~aced.

Here's the rule of thumb: a 15 ampere circuit will carry a load of !~50 to 1800 watts; a 20 ampere :ircuit can handle 2200 to 2400 Add u~p the wattage of all the light bulbs and appliances on euth circuit. Do they exceed these tot- aN? If they do, you need to take something off the circuit. Maybe you can shift an, appliance from one side of the room to another ~o get it on a less us~'d loop.

It's Law in Oklahoma Robert's Rules of Order Summer vacations are over, clubs and societies are meeting avain, business sessions are at full force, and whether or not you realize it, you may frequently be under orde-s of ~be late General Henry M. Robert. Ug Army. "Robert's Rules of Order," first published in 1876, have much to do with the way business is con- ,lucted, whether it's the nominat- ion of a presidential candidate or the monthly meeting of yo~r nei- ghborhood Parent Teacher Assoe- iation. General Robert ordered a,000 copies of his original editio~n. and since that time almost 1,500, 000 have been printed. Revis!on~ have been few. stietly. All this means, in effect, that if a serious question arises over the legality of an action taken by an organization, a court might have to consider General Robert's rules with the same care as it does the law to determine wheth- er or not the action in question was proper. ~:f y,~u are to take an active part in church school civic or frater- nal organizations some knowledge of Robert's rules is important.
