Plants and shrubs. These Plant experts can help you your architect and builder select proper locations a both inside and outdoors a for these necessary adjuncts to successful window boxes for example the information Center Points out should be located where the Clay potted plants plunged in them will not be subjected to Long periods of direct Sunshine or be battered by direct driving Rains or heavy drainage from eaves. Plunging of Clay pots up to their rims in window Box or planter soil is considered the easiest and most effective technique for window boxes since plants can be changed seasonally. Hence window boxes should be lined with Metal or other Waterproof material arid anchored securely to the House in order to support the weight of plunged plants. Locations of indoor built in planters should be selected with equal care. Many House plants dislike too much heat and Light and sudden changes in temperature so it is advisable to keep permanent planters away from radiators and from doors and windows that Are kept open frequently. Many Container plants do double duty both indoors and outdoors of kept in porous Clay pots which duplicate that natural growing environment of the Earth. To insure their year round health the information Center suggests it is Best to pre plan a number of outdoor locations where plants with different Light and moisture requirements can be moved without harm.

Jolivette urges contractors and suppliers whether members of Veca or not who wish to attend to return their reservations promptly. Private Wells bring status As w Ater supplies dwindle new York up a to millions of americans a born and raised in City or suburbs a water was something that came gushing out of a tap at the turn of a faucet on demand for a drink a Shower or purpose at All. Never a thought about it. Mention a private water sup ply and most people immediately conjured up visions of quaint old wishing Wells and Oaken buckets. Not so More. The drought which has involved so much of the country the past few years has made americans water conscious and the private Well a status Symbol. The worsening drought and in Many areas the inability of Community water departments to keep up with increasing water demands have resulted in restrictions on the use of water. While these restrictions in general have applied to use of the Garden Hose for Lawn Auto washing and the like to the filling of backyard swimming pools and operation of water cooled air conditioning some communities have been forced to restrict the use of water in the Home itself. To get around these restrictions More than 450,000 homeowners Are expected to install private water systems in 1966 and another 450,000 homeowners will replace systems they already have with new ones according to Joseph r. Schmitt director of marketing for . Mcdonald mfg. Co., Dubuque Iowa. A private water system usually consists of a water Well an electric pump and a pressure tank for storage of water. According to Schmitt whose firm manufactures private water Supply equipment installation of these systems is growing less complicated by the year. The Well itself for example North Bennington Road Bennington Vermont usually need be Only four inches in diameter where before the Days of electricity Wells usually were hand dug and had to be four or five feet wide. Both government and private contractors have a wide knowledge of local water tables and a Homeowner generally can have a Good idea of How far Down hell have to go to get water. However Schmitt emphasized no Driller can give you an ironclad guarantee. He still has to Drill to find out for sure. And in addition the first water he hits May not be suitable for drinking. Underground water normally flows in layers of Sand and gravel although it also is found in crevices of Rock formations. It May be found less than ten feet underground or perhaps hundreds of feet Down. In drilling a Well steel casing is installed to prevent Cavers and under the water table itself a Well screen allows water but not Sand and gravel to pass. This device is not needed for Rock formations. Schmitt explained the three Basic types of pumps used to bring water to the surface a the shallow Well pump which works much like a soda Straw creating a vacuum in a pipe which extends from pump Down to the water in the Well. This is used where water is less than 25 feet under ground. A the Jet pump which recirculated water Down from the pump to the water table and up again in a continuous Cycle. There is an opening at the Bottom of the piping and like a Weed sprayer a vacuum is created at this opening bringing in water from the Well to be lifted to the surface with the recirculating water. A the submersible pump the newest Type a a Long cylindrical pump that is installed inside the Well itself under the water level. Hermetically sealed it just pushes water to the surface. In deep Wells the submersible can pump More water per kilowatt of electrical Energy than More traditional pumps and since it is in the Well under water is no More noisy than a municipal water main. Many people who Are installing private water systems Schmitt said Are including a fairly recent innovation a a self contained Lawn sprinkling system. These systems he explained require no pressure tank a just a Well a pump and the Lawn sprinkling apparatus. The Cost of installing a private water system varies widely Schmitt pointed out. For the average Home he said its largely dependent on the depth of the water table. The water system Council states that Well drillers usually charge from $2 to $5 per foot of drilling depending on the Well diameter and the Terral they must Drill through. Average equipment prices Al 11 la id rather do it myself Quot please. Make reservations Early off. 447-7119 Bill Lowers Boom on housing Bias Washington up a in his proposed civil rights Bill of 1966 president Johnson has asked Congress to outlaw just about Ever imaginable practice that even hints of racial discrimination in Selling or buying houses. In order to give the negro a the right to live in Freedom among his fellow americans a Johnson wants Congress to make it unlawful for homeowners apartment House managers and real estate brokers or salesmen to a refuse to sell or rent someone a House simply because he is a negro. A agree to sell or rent a negro a House but then make the terms so Tough that he does no to want it or refuse to provide the services a heat for example a that he would normally get. A place a classified and for a House indicating a preference As to race. A Tell a negro who comes to look Over a House or apartment that it is not for Sale or rent when it really is. A refuse to show a negro a House that is listed in a multiple listing service or other kind of real estate service. Furthermore the Bill would make it unlawful for a Bank savings and loan association credit Union insurance company or other a mortgage maker to refuse someone a loan simply because he a a negro or to Jack up the interest rate or Down payment or shorten the maturity. The Bill would not invalidate state or local fair housing Laws but it would strike Down Laws designed to promote housing discrimination. Surveying Gerald e. Morrissey inc.

So vary from a Little under $100 to Over $400, depending on water volume needed water pressure desired diameter of the Well and depth of the water table. Well drillers and contractors familiar with the geological strata of a particular area generally can give accurate estimates of total costs beforehand but Schmitt emphasized there can be no absolute guarantee. The Homeowner should have a written contract specifying Cost per foot of drilling Cost per foot for casing and cementing and spelling out other details of the agreement. Local health agencies will advise about requirements for a Well to be used for drinking water. Regular testing of private system water used for drinking and household purposes is a must and should be a regular part of the Home maintenance routine.
