Page 2 White Falcon exchanqe new< Service Station With winter over, it's time to think of summer car care. Your Navy Exchange Service Station has products you need to bring out the best in your car. Items featured at the station are: Car wash, wax remover, chrome polish, as- sorted brands of cleaners and waxes, rubbing compound, upholstery cleaner, polishing cloths, sponges and chamois. Tire Stocks If you have found that your summer tires aren't what you expected, the Navy Exchange Service Station has the follow- ing tires in stock and the price is right: J-78-15 H-78-15 H-78-14 G-78-14 G-78-15 F-78-14 F-78-15 E-78-14 700-15 D-78-14 685-15 C-78-14 600-15 520-10 750-16 560-13 600-12 700-16 650-16 A-78-13 C-78-13 Rudweiser strike continues We recently received a letter from our Budweiser representative which told of the long strike the Budweiser brew- eries are having. As of now no agree- ment has been reached and there was no expected time when they would begin operation. He did say, however, that overseas military locations would re- ceive priority when the strike was over. In the mean time, we are trying to pro- vide as much as we can to compensate for the shortage of the Anheuser-Busch pro- ducts. The high increase in sales of other products have greatly depleted our stocks and we anticipate running out of all brands of American beer. We are ordering and receiving foreign beers in hopes that you will enjoy these in place of our American beers. New from the Vending Department We have recived the new vending ma- chines that have been on oder. We now have some extra machines available for the dispensing of soda, beer, candy, cigarettes and hot food. If you need a vending machine, please call the Ven- ding Manager at 7107. Suggestions and comments on our ser- vice are welcome. Machines that are out of order should be reported by calling 7105 or leaving your name on the paper provided and attached to the machine. Mail orders Mail order concerns are now required to fill orders within 30 days or offer to refund their customer's money. The Federal Trade Commission has issued a rule that went into effect in January 1976 which covered most merchandise sold by mail, with certain exceptions such as magazines, photofinishing and C.O.D. orders. The customer must also be furnished with a post card calling for cancella- tion if the order is not filled in the allotted time, According to a study reported in Advertising Age, in-home buying of general merchandise totaled $15.2 billion last year and more books were sold by mail than in retail shops. Recognizing the increased sophis- tication of customers, the Sears, Roebuck Company has brought out its catalog in a new format that presents information about the products for sale in simple descriptive terms, omitting flowery language for the most part. Their big question is: "Will this mat- ter of fact approach to merchandising sell products." Fashion safety Among the many products sold at the Navy Exchange are clothing and jewelry. As in the commercial sector, a good por- tion of what we stock and sell is in- fluenced by style trends. Within the guidelines of social acceptance, we do not attempt to make judgments on what is currently popular. We would like to make our customers aware of the potential hazards of some of the contemporary styles. Safety experts have pointed out a number of clothing items that are not suitable for driving: Shoes with non- flexible soles, such as clogs; charm bracelets, dangle jewelry or large ornate rings that can catch car keys, shift levers, seat belts, etc; gloves with slippery palm surfaces; scarfs and floppy hats that can obscure vision; and sunglasses while driving at night or on a shaded street.

For more information, contact TSgt. George Wathen at AFI personnel, 7125. by Suzy Weissinger The Westmann Islands suddenly became the focal point of the world in 1973 when one of the biggest volcanic erup- tions of this century occurred. Heimaey, the only inhabited island of the group, had more than half its town covered in lava and volcanic ash. The hospital, library, swim center, fish factory and 417 dwellings were totally buried. Today a visit to the Westmann Islands is a fascinating journey. One can see man triumphing over nature when viewing the 100 new homes, the constant work at removing lava ash from fertile green hillsides and the new harbor which de- veloped. In the Westmanns there is a museum with an aquarium on display. A motor trip around the island will find every- one picking up rocks as souvenirs. The earth is still hot when digging only a few inches down and three feet down it can be more than 1500 degrees Fah- renheit . One may fly to the Westmann Islands any day of the week throughout the sum-- mer, and the tour office sponsors a day tour which costs $34 and includes air- fare, motorcoach sightseeing tour, a visit to the museum and aquarium and lunch at the hotel. For the Memorial Day weekend there are seats blocked on May 29, 30 and 31. Call the tour office at 4200 or 5111 for further information.
