Booklets inform the consumer

WASHINGTON (R) - Don't
trust the readings on service sta-
tion tire pumps. Do allow wool-
en garments to "rest" for 24
hours before wearing them
again. Don't use hard-setting
adhesives to bond two dissimilar
substances. -
The "Do's" and "Don't's" are
examples of the government's
advice on how to. buy and use
fabrics, tires and adhesives. The
three booklets, released yester-
day by the Commerce Depart-
ment, are the first based on a re-
view of government product in-
formation by the Nixon admin-
istration.,
The booklets lack any brand-
name information from govern-
ment tests, but they do contain
such specific information as the
tire booklet's admonition to al-
ways use a pocket gauge when
inflating tires.
4 A government survey of serv-
ice station air towers showed 62
per cent of the readings on the
towers were off by at least two
pounds per square inch - an er-
ror which could adversely affect
tire wear and car handling.
The booklet explains also the
5 difference between bias, belted-
bias, and radial tires; w a r n s
against using different types of
tires on the same axle - or
mixing radials at all - and ex-

plains that the thump caused by
nylon tires after they have stood
overnight is nothing to worry
about.
The booklet on adhesives ex-
plains that adhering two dissim-
ilar substances together m e a n s
the substances will expand or
contract at different rates in re-
sponse to temperature changes,
putting a straing on the adhes-
ive.
The fabrics booklet explains
that woolen clothing; such as a
sweater, retains its shape bet-,
ter if allowed to rest before
wearing again. It cites the dif-
ferences between various natural
and man-made fibers and ex-
plains what purposes they are
best suited for.
The booklet warns, for exam-
ple, that glass fiber draperies
should not be hung touching
window sills or floors because
brushing against other objects
wears the fabric excessively.
The tires and fabrics booklets
cost 60 cents, the adhesive book-
let, 45 cents. All are available
from the Government Printing
Office.

sumer advisor, Virginia Knauer,
in October as examples of the
primary types of product in-
formation which would be re-
leased by the government after a
one-year survey.
But some consumers advo-
cates have criticized the booklet
approach as not going far
enough.
One of those advising t h e
Commerce Department during
the drafting of the booklets was
Morris Kaplan, technical direc-
tor of Consumers Union, a
Mount Vernon, N.Y., organiza-
tion which does its own product
testing.
"They're better than nothing,"
said Kaplan. But he cited what
he considered shortcomings.
"This kind of information is
of minimal use to consumer go-
ing out to buy a garment," said
Kaplan of the fabrics booklet.
The booklet did not talk about
fabrics as they are found in spe-
cific garments, he said, and they
can exhibit very different pro-
perties once they are' made into
clothing.
He said he would like to have
seen more brand and product
information in the booklets.
