A bracket inside the unit made of plastic or resin was breaking down, resulting in a strong smell that accompanied the smoke, Hurni said.

Drive slow- er and increase our following dis- tance. Brake gently with a slow, steady stroke, repeated as necessary to maintain c9ntrol of the car. If your car is equipped with an anti-lock braking system, press and hold the brake to the floor. Do not 'pump" the brakes. I+et the anti-lock braking system take control of the breaking. Brake early ,ahen coming to an intersection or stop. Approach bridges, shaded spots and overpasses slowly s they may remain icy after the rest of the road is clear and dry. If you, begin to slide, do not hit the brakes, Keep a firm grip on the steering wheel and steer the car in the direction you want the front to go. Do not touch the brakes until the tires regain traction. Do not use cruise control. Before starting even a short trip in bad eather, check the car's lights, heater, wiper blades, antifreeze and gas tank {which should be full). Chains also may be used in states where they are legal. It is best not to travel alone, no matter what distance you plan to go. Make sure someone else knows here you are going, the route you plan to take and when you expect to arrive. Travel by daylight, if possible, and use major highways. Keep the car radio tuned to weather and road reports. If you are stranded, do not panic. Turn on your emergency signal flash- ers or hang a cloth from the radio aer- ial or car window, REMA1N IN YOUR CAR and wait for help to arrive. Run your car engine to keep warm, but do so sparingly to conserve fuel. Also, remember, to crack a win- dow for proper ventilation and keep the exhaust pipe cleared of snow. Do not let everyone in the car sleep at the same time. One person should watch for rescue crews. To maintain body heat, exercise and keep active as nmch as possible while remaining inside the car, but do not overexert. Carry credit cards or extra cash in the event you must stop for overnight lodging or to have your car serviced. Before traveling during the inter months, equip your car with the fol- lowing items: *Blankets *Appropriate dress, including warm mittens and socks, boots, warm hat, insulated underwear, layers of light- weight clothing *Fresh batteries *Flashlight *Battery-powered radio - *Sand and traction mats or old rugs *Shovel *Windshield scraper Connie Voeltz's on Sunday, Dec. 22nd Frank of Willmar and Leona's friend were Mark and Deb Adolphson and Alton Dahl visited Ruth Torgerson on "" '" ' Ryan and Brittany from Edina; Benji Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 17th.
