Dial 442-6308 learn. One thing bothering us now is How to store our window screens in the basement so that they done to Warp or otherwise get ruined until we Are ready to hang them again. The basement is unfinished with the beams showing. It does not appear to be too Damp but we have been told there is always a certain amount of dampness coming from the Concrete floor. Answer those exposed learns make it comparatively easy to construct an inexpensive screen storage area. Nail vertical strips of Woods about two feet apart from the beams. If the beams Are 16 inches apart or thereabouts Nail the strips opposite each other suspended from two beams which Are separated by one beam. Thus you would Nail let us say three vertical strips from one beam skip the next beam Nail three vertical strips from the third beam. Connect the vertical strips with horizontal strips. Place a let no Flat Board across Thoi Fontal strips. What you have done is to make a suspended s t in or rack on which the screens then Are Laid Flat. If dampness is a Factor place Small strips of Wood Between the screens to keep them apart and less Likely to Warp. If you do not wish to make the storage shelves you can buy Metal hangers to suspend trom the beams. One other bit of advice most persons put their screens in shape just before putting them up. Two wagons were necessary to deliver groceries. On the second floor there used to be a Grange Hall where residents held Square dances and meetings. Mrs. Mucklow can remember dancing there herself.
