Keeping newspaper clippings from turning brown and brittle is always a

concern for collectors and researchers. Here's a recipe for preserving a

newspaper clipping:

*Dissolve a milk of magnesia tablet in a quart of club soda.

*Let stand overnight.

*Pour into a pan with the flattened clipping.

*Soak one hour, remove, pat dry and allow to air dry.

*Estimated life: 200 years.
