One never knows with old roofs or with new truss rafters how much weight they will hold. The University of Vermont recommends 40 lbs. per sq. ft. just in case we had extra snow and ice. If you have areas of old or even some new roofs that have over 18 to 24 inches of snow, you should get it off. If it is a cow stable roof that is hard to shovel, turn off the fans on a warm day and let the roof warm up so the ice will melt. The main thing is that we have some roofs go down -- so if you are concerned -- SHOVEL!

With that problem in mind, we've collected a few home-rem- edy suggestions that are every bit as good as the myr- iad of anti-cold drugs mentioned on TV and radio ... but don't strain either your pocketbook or your body's natural defense system. First of all, a reader (who claims he hasn't had "the bug" in the 16 years since he discovered his cure) sent along the following personally tested instructions for a remedy for colds and flu. Willard Olney got the brain- storm for his treatment after reading an article which pointed out that a fever will naturally halt the course of a pesky cold or flu virus. {That's why you feel better after a fever breaks.) Oiney concluded that he could bead off many illnesses if he simply raised his own body temperature before the virus settled in. At the first symptoms of a cold or flu {headache, scratchy throat, sore muscles, fatigue.., you know all the miserable signs), Oiney goes home in the evening and soaks--for as long as he can stand it--in a very hot bath. (For safety's sake, be sure the water doesn't ex- csed 105 OF if you try it!) Then, when" his body temperature registers about 102F, Wiliard gets out of the tub. (It's a good idea to get help when standing up . hot water baths can make you dizzy!) Next, he climbs into bed--under plen- ty of extra blankets--to roast, shucking off the covers a layer at a time as the night wears on. And, come the following morning, a regenerated Wit- lard Olney sallies forth to greet the day[ So, next time you start feeling poorly, you might consider taking Ol- ney's advice: Just draw yourself a hot bath and sfive the money you might have spent on worthless "mira- cle" medicines. However, if it's too late--and you've already let a vi- rus get the best of you, another reader, Marj Watkins, has a few suggestions on bow to handle a fever. If your temperature is under I02F, Ms. Watkins suggests you eat chilled custard, jello, applesauce, and small amounts of lean beef. Drink apricot juice, lemon- ade, fresh or reconstituted frozen orange juice, or chilled rose-hip or mint tea--along with 1,000 milli- grams of vitamin C--every two hours. Keep warm and. out of drafts. ,,,, For h fever of over 102F, Marj adds, you should sip cool liquids reinforced with about 1/2 teaspoon of pow- dered ascorbic acid (the same substance that's sprin- kled on fresh fruit to prevent browning) or dissolved vi- tamin C tablets {1,000 milligrams per cupful). Stay in bed. Lightly wash your face, hands, arms, and neck with a cool, wet cloth, continually cooled in a basin of cold water. {Do consult a doctor if sore throat, vomit- ing, abdominal pain, or chest congestion are also pres- ent.., or if home remedies fail to bring you relief.) The lady also recommends that a person recovering from a fever stay indoors--and preferably in bed--until the temperature has been normal for a full 12 hours, or the fever may return.

She was well-adjusted and social. But suddenly her happy and independent manner dissolved and she became a clinging, terrified, hysterical child. She cried and fought and refused to go outside to play. She wouldn't let her parents out of her sight for a minute. She would throw a tantrum when it was time for school and would scream un- controllably when left. tler parents were frightened and shocked. They were at a loss to understand what had caused the sudden change in their child. Growing Child, the monthly child development newsletter, calls this phenomenon "separation anxiety," It is a fairly comnmn stage among children in preschool years and often marks the child's first separation from home and parents. Separation anxiety is a very natural response for a child, bul not that is not easy to cope with. The child is experiencing her own shortcomings for the first time. She recognizes her own dependence on her parents. She is testing herself, I rying on her dependence- independence for size. And she is testing her parents, as well. Sometimes the change can be related to a parent's illness thai requires hospitalization or a period of bed re'st at home Sonmtimes a mother's absence for the birth of another child can trigger the anxiely, At other times, no one can put a finger on the cause. In searching for possible reasons, parents often begin to feel guilty. They make ex- cuses for the child. They wonder if they have been "bad" parents. In their guilt they allow the child's behavior to manipulate them and disrupt the family pattern. The child, meanwhile, feels less and less secure as she gets away with more and more. She needs to feel that her parents love her enough to guide her properly, to set boundaries hr her behavior, and to make decisions in her best interest. She recognizes and fears her own lack of experience. Through the tears, clinging and temper tantrums, she is saying again and again, "Reassure me. Tell me what I should do. Help me gow in confidence and in- dependence."

Instead, it becomes an orderly world where by making small decisions first, she can grow up learning how to make more important ones.
