Plans are being completed for the bazaar to be held on Friday, Oct. 24, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rebekah Hall. Lola Lord was hostess for the meeting. Edith Little- john was appointed to attend the meeting at the City Hall on zoning of lots near the Rebekah property. Visitors at the home of Velma Ault were Mrs. Shaffer, Miss Colwell of Waila Walla Washington, also a cousin Ellen Hill. Days were spent in sightseeing and visiting the beach. The Artist~ club will not meet this Friday due to the rummage sale being held at the Drop-In Center on Friday andSaturday 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The members will also hold a bake sale and sell pie Less than - new appliances may lack some of the glamour of new models on the sales floor of an appliance store, but often the money you save in buying a used appliance can make up for doing without a newly devel- oped a feature or two "When considering the purchase of a used appliance, it helps to follow some general guidelines," says Lois Watkinson, Polk County Extension agent. First, visit a few stores and look at some new models. Make sure you find out about current prices and any up-to- date features of new appliances. "This will help you judge whether or not you're getting a good buy on the used equipment," says Wat- kinson. Next, start tracking clown the particular ap- pliance you need. Some reputable new appliance dealers take trade-ins and sell used equipment. A few stores place equipment in local schools for eductional use, and after a couple of years replace them and sell the "old" equip- ment. Such appliances may be hard to find but are among your best bets for buying good used appliances. Some deal- ers and utilities will deliver a used appliance, install it (sometimes at an extra charge), and even give a 30, 60, or 90 day warranty on it. "If you buy directly from an owner through an ad in a newspaper or on a community bulletin board, you're strictly on your own," Watkinson warns, "but often the savings in price is worth the gamble." To make it less of a gamble, keep these thoughts in mind. Start by checking the overall appearance of the appliance and particul- arly its critical, hard- ware parts such as the tops of washers and dryers, the interior food liners of refrigerators, the inside of dishwash- Get Ready for Fishing Season *Rod & Reel Repair *Custom Rods 876-2301 Harry Olmstead 9330 Steel Bridge Rd, Willamina and'coffee. The community is saddened by the loss of Shirley Rogers. The ladies of the United Methodist Church served a dinner to the relatives and close friends of the family Those working on the dinner were Marj Hoye, Hazel 3olley, Verda Fetch, Myrtle Wooden and Olive Thayer. All are thanked for donations of food. Stella Pearson reports that her husband, Gus, is showing improvement and is now at the Sheridan Care Center. Visi- tors at the Gus Pearson home the first part of the week were Mr. and Mrs. Athur Mulkey. Mrs. Mulkey is a sister of Stella Pearson. Members of the Shirley Rogers family here to attend the funeral and visiting at the home of Mrs. Shirley Rogers were: Mrs. Earl Dixson and her son Edwin Dixson of Moscow, Idaho, Mrs. Roy McGee of NewhaU, Calif., Mrs. Dixson and Mrs. McGee are sisters of Mr. Rogers. Also, visiting here at the home of his mother is the son, Frank Rogers of Camp Springs, Maryland, and son Phillip and family of Salem, Oregon. The regular meeting of the Civic Club is being held this week; business of the rum- mage sale will be planned and other activities of the coming winter months. ces ers, and just about all of a kitchen range. If the appliance is still shiny, glossy, and looks in good repair, the manufacturer probably used a porcel- ain enamel finish on it. Porcelain enamel is glass fused to steel at extremely high temper- atures. It's a more expensive process for manufacturers to use in making appliances and therefore its use can be a clue to the overall quality and durability built into the appliance. After locating a used appliance that appears in good shape, ask these questions: --Did the owner buy it new or did it come with the house? --What repairs have been made on it, and can you see the records of any maintenance or re- pairs done on the appli- ance? --How much has the family used the appli- ance? The size of the family might be a good clue here. For example a 10-year old washing machine owned by a family of eight probably isn't a good buy at any price. "Also ask why the appliance is being sold." Watkinson stresses. If it is still under warranty, find out whether you as the new owner would be covered. Always have the owner demonstrate the appliance for you. Not only will any strange noises reveal them- selves, but also any unusual operating pro- cedures developed by the previous owner can be explained. Finally, get the appli- ance's model number or serial number and check with the local manufact- urer's model number or serial number and check with the local manufact- urer's service depart- ment on the availability of parts for it and whether the machine can be serviced Iocallv.
