Tibet - Golden Roof of the World
In the sacred soil of ancient Tibet, nestled high in the great Himalaya Mountains, lie millions of tons of gold—waiting for the world to discover it. By Harrison Forman FANTASTIC Tibet could be the site of the greatest gold rush in all history! I have seen tons of gold there. Yes, literally tons of it! I have seen whole rooftops of Tibetan temples and shrines heavily sheeted with gold. Giant golden Buddhas sat in these temples' murky interiors with massive incense burners and altar pieces of solid gold. I have seen libraries of sacred Buddhist scripture whose dog-eared volumes were bound with bands of pure gold.
make your own TURNING SIGNALS
Here are some money-saving suggestions that will make for safer driving and greater relaxation on the road. THE weather is wet and windy as you are driving along a busy road. You come to an intersection where you have to make a right turn. If you crank open the window to stick your arm out you'll let in a blast of uncomfortable air; if you don't, you'll risk trouble with drivers behind and ahead of you and with pedestrians at the curb. What's the choice?

100 Million Road Maps Can't Be Wrong
for absolutely any emergency. "Yes," replied the unsuspecting clerk. ::image_gallery::
100 Million Road Maps Can't Be Wrong By Irv Leiberman IN Vancouver, Washington, a quavering feminine voice inquired over the telephone if the tourist bureau of a large oil company provided a service for absolutely any emergency. "Yes," replied the unsuspecting clerk. "Well, I'm parked right around the corner from your office," the woman said, "and there's a mouse in the driver's seat. And I won't leave for New York until he goes away!" Although this is not a typical question, routers in tourist services frequently are confronted with such out-of-the-ordinary requests. This is in addition to thousands of demands for regular travel information which pour in to them through the mails. And they distribute more than 100 million road maps to Americans on the go.
Big Profits From Little Prophets
The Kahns took the old Swiss weather house, put it on a modern production line and now collect over % million dollars annually. By Clive Howard TO make a million dollars, or at least to put yourself far out along the road toward your first million, you don't necessarily have to invent something that nobody ever thought of before. As a matter of fact, you don't have to invent anything. You can, like young Mr. and Mrs. Robert Kahn of Highland Park, Illinois, simply resurrect for the modern market an invention that is nearly as old as time.
Cleveland Club Helps New Inventors
Fledgling gadgeteers won't be at the mercy of dishonest promoters when Bill Korth's New Inventors Club is battling for their rights. By Alfred Eris NO one ever has worried much about the troubles of inventors. More than one inventive soul will shame-facedly confess to having been fleeced out of his idea and the time, effort and money it involved. Countless others will admit that they just never did anything about their inventions, and perhaps threw away a chance to make big money, for the simple reason that they didn't know how or where to begin.
Bazooka Bomb: Newest Sub-Killer
IN World War II the German commanders of the Panzer divisions were mystified by a new American weapon which effectively was knocking out their tanks. At first they thought it might be a new kind of mortar. Actually they were being introduced to our bazooka and its shaped-charge shell. In the Korean war this same weapon proved to be a potent threat to the Communists' heavy armor.
our business is GOING TO THE DOGS
By Bob Swaner I never realized until I joined the Navy what a problem it could be to keep a big dog supplied with good, nourishing food. What has the Navy got to do with it? Well, I was an officer in the Shipbuilding Division of the Bureau of Ships, and my job kept me traveling a great deal. Of course I brought my family with me, including Tigue, our German Shepherd. He's a real dog, tough and with the appetite of a lion. And there was my problem... feeding the critter.
CAN'T sleep? Worried about the atom bomb? Where would you rather have it find you than in the Acousticot, a super-bed dreamed up by Colonel Elliott White Springs of the Springs Cotton Mills.
