FIX People managed to slay com- fortable through the summer long before it was possible to plug in an air conelilion.cr. Some siill manage without that modern convenience. And many have learned thai even an air conditioner needs help to work at its most effi- cient. You may find that those things you do to make an air conditioner work more effi- ciently are enough by them- selves to keep the house com- fortable. A house becomes hot as heat builds up during the day and remains trapped indoors even though outdoor temperatures are dropping. The principle in staying cool is to rid the house of heated air anp replace i1 with cooler night air. Then try to store up that cooler air for the next day. Open doors and windows at. night and close them in the morning before the sun warms things up. Make certain you keep windows closed on the sunny side of the house. Draw shades to keep the sun from le- henting the air. Open windows on the shady side it there is a breeze you can ealnli. Sometimes nature needs a helping hand. An exhaust can pull warm air out of the house faster than it can drift out on its own. Mount the fan in a window, an attic louvre or window, or in the ceiling so that air is exhausted through lhe louvres. Mount the fan as high as you can, on the second floor in a two-storey house. A win- dow on the sunny side is the best bet, closing tire other win- dows on the same side. Open a window on the opposite the shady side of the house. This way you will be pulling cool air in. Try to place the fan so that the flow of air is across sev- eral rooms. Leave basement doors open since the cooler basement air can help the rest of the house. It's important to get rid of the attic air if you can since heat builds up first under the of your house. Ridding the --TV hot air 15 or 20 degrees warmer will do much to make things condortable. If yru have an air condition- er remember these lurther tips: HOME OF THE WEEK Keep it clean. Change the fil- ter. If the filter is permanent, dean it often. Even the re- placeable type out to be va- cuumed often. Buy a unit big enough to cir- culate all the lir in the room. A room air conditioner can- not cool an entire house. Close the door and let it do the work it was intended for. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

You will note that the living room comprises a sepa- rate wing thus completely iso- lating it from the sleeping area, often a very desirable feature. On the ground floor there is a den which could be used for an extra bedroom, a separate dining room and an extra large Kitchen. Laundry area opens onto the rear proch which gives added protection to the back door. Upstairs there are four larger than usual bed- rooms, one of which has its pri- vate washroom. A two car ga- rage is included. Construction of lower level is brick veneer but could be solid brick if pre- ferred. While (he upper level is frame, it could also be brick.

VEGETABLES FOR EXHIBITION TF you intend lo exhibit in your local show, or else- where, get a schedule and care- fully read over Ihe classes you are interested in. Special at- tention should be given lo vege- tables you arc going to enter in a "collection." As far as pos- sible, select (hose which carry Ihe highest poinls of value. Some of Ihe larger shows have a schedule in their prize list which consists of the following for each vegetable: 9 points leeks, celery, corn: 8 poinls ml cabbage, cauliflower, car- rols. onions, parsnips, peas, po- lafoes, tomatoes. 7 points beans fwax or cucum- ber; 6 points Iwans beets, cahbacc. letluce, mar- rows, broccoli, savoys, lurnins; 5 poinls kale, spinach, rhu- harb, kholrabi; 4 poinls dish. They arc ralcd according to difficulty in growing to per- fection. Vegetables are intended lo be calcn, and so an ideal spoci- mci should be nl Ihc stage where it is perfect for both eating and cxhibiling. A good judge will often InsKi peas be- fore awarding a prize. This is often Ihc deciding faclor. They should not only be free from disease and insect damage, biil should also clean. All root vogclablrs, including potatoes, should be ashed (not scrubbed) as there should be no sign of scratches from cleaning. A soft cloth or a small paint brush may be used lo get dirt out of crevices. Car- rots, beets, parsnips and turn- ips should be smooth and with- out blemishes, cracks, sunscald or greening of shoulders, or extra roots. The tops are usu- ally cut off about inch above the crown. They should not be too large, but of a diameter and length at which that partic- ular variety :s at its best. Beets arc best shown on the small side, rather than large. These are usually cut (by the judge) for inside color, which should be dark and free from while rings. Potatoes should have few and shallow eyes and no scab. When picking I go into the garrl in with a pair of scis- sors pnd a plastic bag. The stem of the pea is held in the left hand and with scissors in right hand it is cut and dropped inlo the bag. The "bloom" or dull appearance on (lie pod should not be rubbed off. The tips and stems arc left on and all should be uniform in size, shape and color. When har- vesting peas, bold to the light to sec if the pod is full, without gap-. Have all pods facing the same way when exhibiting. Reans should have Hie tips and sterns on and not be over-ma- ture, and be as straight as pos- sible. They can lw straighlcncd lo some exlent by gently pulling them between the thumb and Ihe first two fin- gers. There should be no sign of any string when snapped in two. Cabbages have the out- ermost leaves removed, but two wrapper leaves should re- main. Cauliflower should be pure white with a good solid nird without any signs of bolt- ing. The leaves are cut off just above the head. Onions should be dug some lime before the show so they can dry off prop- erly. Some shows call for the tops nil off 2 inches above the bulb and others bend the stems over and tie them. Corn is shown wilh 1-3 of husk re- moved. Leeks should be thick, well branched wilh top shorten- ed lo 4-5 inches and rools removed. Celery as large a specimen as possible wilh stalks closely set Trim root stock lo a conical point and take off all outside leaves. Make a straight cut across top of leaves and tie wilh twislem just Iwlow where leaves slart. Tomatoes exhibited wilh stems on no cracking, and color should be deep and Ihc skin smooth. Rhubarb 18 lo 20 inches in length, with inch of (op left on. llollom is left on and trimmed evenly. lie sure and check your own schedule. These arc some of '.he most im- portant vegelables. It is not necessary to leave Ihc preparation if your produce lo Ihe day before the show. I have picked cauliflower more Ihnn a week ahead of a show, wrapping it in Snriin Wrap and kepi it in Ihe refrigerator. Hoot crops may he lifted and pre- pared several days altcncl. realize the great difference in seed sizes. For instance, there are about 115 seeds of beans, either bush or pole, to the ounce while the same weight of turnip seeds would total Watering newly sown seeds, whether indoors or outdoors, is extremely important. Althougl drainage must be good, especi- ally indoors, the seedbeds must never be allowed to dry out Dryness would be fatal to the sprouting seeds. v If you like radishes and ob- ject to paying high prices for them in the market during winter, grow Round Black Span- ish, a winter radish. Seeds are sow as late as August for winter use and roots are stored in moist sand. They keep all winter.
