(CI') - The advice of an expert is Uiat tlie homeowner who wants to install any paved surface on his property is to seek tlie advice of an expert. Prof. J. Pos of tlie school of engineering at the University of Guelph in a newsletter for the Ontario department of agriculture information branch has outlined some of the points the owner should study. First, he says, consider the cost, especially if the area to be covered is large. Compare the cost of asphalt and cona'ete, taking the trucking distance HOMOGRAF CO.

Ideally suited for a hillside lot, tJic house illusLi-aled ap-peaa-s even larger from the rear tlian from the front. It is, in fact, a large home providing 1.637 square feet of Uvmg area. SbpLng land provides a two-storey exposiu-e at the rear, giving tlie lujxury of both a wv-ered amd exposed expanse of patio. Tlie lower level Ibs a large recreation area beneath the living room with its own natural fireplace. Also on tlids level is the laundry room. On the main floor tlie dining and living rooms are separated by a wall containuig built - in bookcases, china cabinets and the natural fireplace, open to both rooms. Designed for efficiency, the kitchen is 18 feet long and includes a dinmg nook. The master bedroom has lai-ge closets and a bathroom cn suite, one of the IJiree in the house. There are hvo other bedrooms, and a study, wliich could double as a fourth bedi'oom, if desired. A breezeway separates the kitchen from the large garage and the area fram the garage to the front door is protected by a covered walk. Althou^i the plan shows the garage opening to the side, it could just as easily open to the front if the lot size docs not allow the luxury of tlie side opening. A TRIPLE THREAT PLOT TO THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS! Winterize your la^vn tefore | cold winds blow and hcax-y snow settles in for good. Now's (lie time to do it. Winterizing is nothing more than making sure your yard will bounce back gi-een and healthy in Uie spring from winter's assault with cold winds, snow and freezing temperatures. The lawn and garden experts at Massey - Ferguson, a leading manufacturer of lawn care products, propose the (oUovAng foui'-step winterizmg progi-am for lawis in tlie northem half of the country: 1. Rake lawn thoroughly to remove dead leaves, grass. Leaves left on a lawn throughout the winter will pack down, kiUing healthy grass or promoting gi-o\\'tli of snow mold. Cleaning out dead, matted grass will permit fertilizer and new gi-ass seed to work into tlie ground and will help promote healUiier giwvth m Uie Spring. Use gathered leaves and grass clippings to start a compost heap. Don't, howevei", use dead leaves or grass cUppLngs as mulch for perennials or spring bulbs. Leaves and grass will mat down, "smothering" new gi-owi-h. 2. Fertilize your lawn. The lawn experts say this every year, but fertilizing is particularly important in the faU when grass starts growing again as cooler weather sets in. A fall feeding program Avill help gi-ass develop a strong root sj'stem and store up food for llie spring. .1, Ucsecd bare spots. Pal] is tJie best time to plant gi-ass seed.

II big concUtions and moisture is more prevalent in tlie fall than iji summer. Actually, most ma'-,ior grasses sliould be planted in tlie fall. Not only do they root bettei" now, but they also gi-ow strong enough to crowd out la^\�n weeds which usually don't start uirtJi the following May or June. AVhen you buy seed, check to bo sure the mixture is suitable for your lawn. If you're like most homeowners, you'll probably buy two varieties - one for siumy areas and another tor shady. i, Water thoroughly all slii-ubs and evergreens before groimd freezes to protect plants from wind bum dui-ing winter. Fall watering of evergreens and other shnibs is particularly imprtant and a task too often ignored by many gardeners. Fall is also a good time to dig up that vegetable garden so it's all ready foi- spring planting. Small gardens can be tm-ned over by hand. Larger gardens will require me-cltanazed equipment of -some type. planning adiice of from the plant Into consideration. Drainage is most important. Ci-ushed stone under the paved surface will provide proper un-derdraiiiage so water will not collect beneath the surface and cause frost boUs or heaves in the winter. "A good sub-base is essential," says Prof. Pos. "The contractor should excavate to a depth of about six inches, then apply a crushed stone base. Chi top of tliis base, a well-compacted asphalt to a depth of 2\-i to 3 inches is required." Anotlier important point is tlie use of a total-kill herbicide to discourage any vegetation growth beneath the paved surface. Vegetation can sometimes lodge in the control cracks of concrete pavement, but in asphalt, dandelion, fungus, or other plants can grow up right throu^ the surface, spoiling the appearance. Concrete sliould be cast in sections so tliat cracking wall take place along controlled joints. Place an expansion joint every 15 to 20 feet. ilipp< opotamus sweating blood wi'oug ]3elief There is no foundation to the belief that the hippopotamus sweats blood. During warm weather, tlic iiippo's skin does seci-ete a reddish, oUy liquid to make the skin more resistant to water, but this secretion is not blood, although it resembles blood in general appeai-ance.

However, the sui'face does move around and heave. A substantial base with a tmish coat of finer material can combat tills. Most paving contractors use a utility mix which combines the base and finish coat. Generally, after a year or two, the homeowner must apply a seal coat of liquid asphalt or asphalt spray. Prof. Pos also suggests hiring a conti-actor who uses a one-ton vibrating roller. This abnost guarantees a good surface. Tlie quartei'-ton roller used by many small companies is inadequate and does not compact the surface well, lie says.

But not until Coin World introduced the "Santa Token" have I seen anytliing payuig tribute to old Saint Nick. It measures 20 millimeters in diameter, which is one milli- meter larger tlian a IJ.S. cent and displays the smiling countenance of Kris Kringle on the obverse with his name above, and a pair of ribbon - bound beUs and the inscription "Season's Greetings" on the reverse.

Our Building Industry Consulting Service works for architects; engineers and developers to control the communications explosion. The communications explosion occurs when a building can't keep up with its tenants' growth. When new or expanding communications systems outstrip a building's ability to handle all the wiring and equipment rooms needed. That's when communications explode. The communications explosion causes problems for everyone. (For tenants, employees and for us.) You can do s5hlelhihg about it now, before, your next building gels underway. Just plan ahead. Plan for the complex commu- nications facilities which make a modern building an efficient place to work or live. If you plan for them before the blueprints are finished, no one will have to make expensive building alterations later. Or add unsightly wiring later. Or worse, do without b adiy needed communications systems. ' To help plan ahead, call AGT's Building Industry Consulting Service. They'll help you cope with theGorfimuhicatiohs explosion. And, fheir time and services are free. Call collect: In Edmontbn 425^4901 ; in Calgary 261-3311 . BUILDING INDUSTRY CONSULTING SERVICE ALBERTA GOVERNMENT TELEPHONES ;
