Page 2 White Falcon September 23, 1977 Consumer bulletin by Nadia Slusar NEX Service Station Resulting from recent contract negotiation, the Navy Exchange Ser- vice Station anticipates an increase in gas prices by December and will soon implement total self-service at the pump island. As you are probably aware, a two-cent per gallon reduction can be taken on self-service islands. Con- verting to self-service on both is- lands will also reduce waiting lines at the gas pumps. The self-service operation en- courages you, the patron, to serve yourself. However, if you are unable or op- posed to self-service, an attendant will be ready to pump the gasoline for you. Signs will be prominently dis- played to remind patrons "sound horn for assistance." The Service Station also has in a shipment of winter tires in all sizes. Make appointments now for tire changing and tire studding. Studded tires can not be put on be- fore Oct. 15. Check out the Service Station while the selection is complete. Driftwood Cafeteria This coming week, MS2 Paul McCarthy will offer a steak sandwich special. Drop in at the Driftwood Cafeteria Tuesday through Saturday for Paul's steak sandwich special. Revlon The Revlon representative has some new Charlie travel/trial size cleansers and toners. Moondrops also has travel/trial size cleansers, moisturizers and night creams. With winter weather coming, now is the time to try these super moisturizers and cleansers. Men can get in on the skin care program as well. Sensitive skin has no gender boundary. Protect your skin with these new travel ^nd trial size cosmetics. Optical service Effective immediately, there will be a 50 per cent deposit on all op- tical orders placed at Personalized Services. The department has built up an excessive inventory because cus- tomers order glasses and then do not pick them up. Since everyone's prescription is personal, it can not be told to another patron. This results in un- wanted items, extra work and ex- pense to no avail. NEX asks your cooperation to aid in alleviating this problem. The exchange policy will be 50 per cent down on all items ordered. This ernest fee, NEX hopes, will encourage patrons to pick up special orders. New items The exchange now has ladies' 3-speed bicycles, several watches, gift items from all over the world and more merchandise continually coming in. Keep shopping at your Navy Exchange.

TOURS & TRAVEL by Magna Gudmunsdottir The C-118 (Environmental and Morale Leave program) is going to Brussels in October. Brussels in Belgium is an excellent jumping-point to France, Holland, Luxembourg, Austria or Germany, but there are a lot of interesting things to see and do in Brussels. Offering a most astonishing mixture of the present and the past, together with some surprising futuristic archi- tectures, Brussels is to satisfy the most hard to please: Monuments, muse- ums, restaurants, shops and "boutiques", parks churches and antique markets. It is the most European of Europe cities, the most international of the old continent with its gothic churches, a famous marketplace in baroque style, English pubs, French gardens and a cuisine, admittedly second to none. Grand'PI ace The medieval Grand'Place, old heart of Brussels, is a magnet to tourists from all over the world. See the 13th century Cathedral of St. Michael, stained glass and wonderful tapestries, Notre Dame du Sablon, Law Courts; and in the museum the finest collection of the Flemish masters and moderns. Gastronomy in Brussels Like the French, Belgians devotedly worship good food and drink. A number of good restaurants are in Brussels, in the centre, near the Grand'Place, at the Sablon, at the Porte de Namur and near the Avenue Louise. Wherever you sit down to eat, you will relish quality food served "comme il faut" in pleasant surroundings. In addition to French specialities, you will be able to appreciate typical Belgian dishes: chicken waterzooi, eels, Brussels witloof, veal kidneys a la liegeoise, Ardennes smoked ham, mussels with a variety of sauces, snails and asparagus a la Flamande. These dishes are generously accompanied by beer or wine. In addition, foreign restaurants picturesquely contribute a variety of international "cusines". Shopping and the picturesque Brussels, the crossroads of Europe, is also the crossroads of fashion. It is perhaps the only city in the world to offer such a wide overall view of international fashion. Collections from Paris, London, Vienna and Rome are available in tasteful boutiques in the centre, rue Neuve, Avenue Louise, Avenue de la Toison d"0r of in the arcadej. Close to the Grand' Place you will find the celebrated Brussels lace, woolens.from Scotland, pullovers from Norway, jackets from the Tyrol, rain- coats from New York, leather goods from Florence and optical instruments from Germany and Japan. Household electrical appliances and beauty products from across the Atlantic as well as from all over the world are also found in Brussels., where you will be surprised and de- lighted to discover Belgian choco- lates, Val St-Lambert crystal, house- hold linen woven from Flanders flax, and firearms from Liege. On Saturdays and Sundays you can go to the Sablon, where the antique and book markets are held, a must for en- thusiasts. On Sunday mornings, the Tour Office suggests a visit to the bird market; it is charming, especially in the unique decor of the Grand'Place. From there you can go to the Old Market, where you will rub shoulders with the "cockneys" of Brussels and immigrants in a happy, good-natured atmosphere. Cancellations for Hvltarbakki Lodge must reach the Tour Office before noon Thursdays. SAT, ACT to be administered for individuals at A* T.
