T Page 2 the Consumer bulletin Navy Exchange by ColUe« F«ck»»r Washington's Birthday Whether or not "George" threw a silver dollar across the Potomac doesn't Influence the dollar value at the Keflavik Navy Exchange. The exchange will celebrate his birthday with a ship load of spe- cials. Many useful items will be featured and customers will be of- fered discounts on selected merchan- dise such as household detergents, bleach, shampoo, toothpaste, tissues, and deodorants. Don't be left out on a limb, shop the Navy Exchange Thurs- day through Feb. 19 and save your dollars. Party Pert Platters Party Pert Platters, successful during the holiday season, are still available at the Viking Cafeteria. If you're having a party, let the Viking do the work. Four varieties of platters provide you with just the right kinds and amounts of food to make your party a success. Delicatessen assortments One of the finest assortments of cold cuts and fresh cheeses is at the Mini-Mart deli. If you have had a craving for making a super sub, the deli has the items you need. How about that "Dagwood" sandwich people crave before bedtime? The assortment of meats and cheeses makes Dagwood Bumstead himself envious. Beauty Shop The Beauty Shop has just received a large selection of Redken products for patron use. If you use, or are interested in obtaining this fine line of beauty products, come into the shop and make your selection. Unclaimed laundry Several patrons have not picked up their laundry from the Navy Exchange. Some items have been at the laundry for 90 days. These items will be kept for an additional 15 days before being sold. It's Income Tax time The new tax forms are not the easiest things in the world to com- plete. But don't fret. The Navy Ex- change has a supply of Income Tax Guide booklets designed to help you. The exchange also has pencils, pads, pens and bargain priced calculators to reduce the risk of costly error. Get your supplies now and file your returns early. Discount coupons These money-saving coupons may be used at the Navy Exchange, if the pertinent merchandise is in stock. Discount coupons enable NEX patrons to realize added savings on exchange items. This is not a new policy, but one which has been effected for sev- eral years. However, the exchange feels that customers appreciate an occasional reminder on ways to enjoy added savings. Start now The beginning of the year is the best time to begin organizing and storing receipts and other documents for filing the following year's in- come tax. It's also the perfect time to ensure that other important papers- are kept in their proper places, and to begin budgeting for probable ex- penditures. Document organizers and protect-, ors, along with budget envelope books, are available in the t!avy Ex- change stationery department. The NEX also features a variety of writ- ing supplies at bargain prices. One visit can help you to begin the year in an organized fashion. Tiny diamonds are big news Monday is Valentine's Day. In ad- dition to the traditional tokens of love, the Navy Exchange features fashion diamond jewelry at affordable prices. Small diamond jewelry has become popular, and will probably never go out of style. Diamond stud earrings, chokers, rings, pendants and watches are in vogue for all age groups. Use the Valentine's Day occasion for that special person. Visit the Navy Exchange jewelry counter and select from the diamond creations displayed. Service station Major engine tuneups are necessary to keep your car in good running con- dition. The intervals for performing major tuneups should conform to the manufacturer's specifications or sooner when driving conditions war- rent. At Keflavik, tuneups are es- sential to maintain peak performance. The excessive dust, stop and go driv- ing and short trip driving may result in less than satisfactory car perfor- mance. When you bring your car to the Na- vy Exchange Service Station for a ma- jor engine tuneup, the work will in- clude: compression testing, ignition wire testing, distributor testing, vacuum advance testing, ignition coil testing, new spark plug installation and new distributor points and con- denser installation. Other work or- ders are to check ignition timing and adjust, carburetor idle mixture and idle speed adjusted, service or re- place air cleaner, service or replace fuel filter, check/service emission control system and adjust drive belts. Mechanics may also test bat- tery, clean battery posts, scientif- ically recheck all systems and road test. Let the Navy Exchange Service Sta- tion maintain your car and keep it in safe and economical operation. With inspection time beginning, make an appointment by calling 4470 to get your car ready.

Commissary Store Late January vegetable reports from Florida indicate severe damage to most vegetables. Florida is one of the major producers of seven es- sential vegetables for the United States. Tomatoes, cucumbers, pep- pers, celery, lettuce, cabbage and carrots were hard hit by the freez- ing temperatures. Consequently, sufficient quantities of these items will not be available until early June. Also, the Florida Citrus Com- mission reported heavy losses of var- ious citrus fruits. This winter freeze will affect the fresh fruit and vegetable market in the following ways: Insufficent sup- ply to meet normal demand; higher prices because of shortages and pro- curement of vegetables from foreign sources (i.e. Mexico), and quality will not be up to standards because all available items on the market will be procured. No foreseeable shortages will oc- cur in the canned or frozen citrus juice categories. Commissary Store patrons are re- quested to continue normal purchas- ing patterns. The store will keep customers advised of any significant changes. White Falcon The Consumer Bulletin is compiled by Exchange employees and Commissary employees.

Rota is a small fishing and agricultural town, whose importance as a summer resort is contin- ually increasing. Several beaches are located in the town and in nearby areas. Also in Rota, Luna Castle, constructed in the 13th century, is a famous sightseeing spot. On the other side of the bay is Cadiz, which claims to be the oldest inhabited city in the Western world. Cadiz is a city of the sea, since it is totally lacking in open land. The town has a new half with a modern in- dustrial air, and an old district with charming narrow streets and ancient stones. There are many interesting mon- uments and sightseeing attractions in Cadiz. Among them are the 18th cen- tury Baroque cathedral with sculptures by Roldana and Martinez Montanes, and a treasure in jewels and ornaments; the church of San Felipe Neri with a Murillo painting; the church of San Augustine with carvings by Montanes; the church of Santa Cueva with works by Goya; and that of Santa Catalina with paintings by Murillo and others from his studio. Magnificient beaches, yacht clubs, quite plazas and gardens, modern sports stadiums, wide shopping avenues... all these make up Cadiz, and will make your journey there an exciting one.

Navy announces high school diplomas as continuing goal The Navy says it will continue its goal of a high school diploma for every enlisted. This goal is stressed despite recent legislation that revised the G.I. Bill educational benefits and virtually eliminated the possibility for first term Navy enlistees to continue their high school education early in their enlistment. NAVOP 161/76 established an interim procedure for a continuation of a high school completion program for first term enlisted personnel by okaying al- ternate methods of financing the cost of the required educational assistance. Under NAVOP 161, the Navy will use tuition assistance funds and the DANTES program to pay for three types of train- ing at high school level. ^m White Falcon Commanding Officer Capt. Jack T.
