Bowl Ea SAFEWAY CANADA SAFEWAY LIMITED DESIGN R3-1040 This week's home has proved to be the most popular presented for many years. It is a spacious three bedroom ranch design, but careful attention has been paid to cost. Its plan is as near to a simple economical rectangle as possible but still avoids a small "boxy" impression. A long gable roof is economical to build and enhances the impression of length. An extra washroom is accessible from master bedroom, rear entrance, kitchen and basement. The centre hall plan gives the straight- through access from front door to kitchen which so many homemafcers prefer. Plans provide for an optional living room fireplace, one or two car garage and alternative construction with frame exterior. The design is suitable for any type of heating. (Copyright 1974.

Families of all sizes have found that one manufacturer's unique through the door ice dispenser feature is not only handy, but helps cut down the number of times the freezer door is opened each day, so the appliance will not have to work so hard to maintain interior temperatures. To get ice, the members ''of the family or guests merely set the selector lever to "crushed ice" or "ice cubes" and press the cradle with their 'glasses. There is little need to worry about running out of ice, as an automatic icemaker continually replenishes the supply. A separate cradle activates the chilled water dispenser.

Herald- At Home NAME ADDRESS Print) L6TH Solve problems sagging floors Your garden By battle IL Young, FJULS. SOME NEW FLOWER SELECTIONS Showboat is a new hybrid Marigold for 1974. It is a triple medal winner with golden yellow, double 2% inch flowers on 12 to 15 inch plants. It is much improved over others of this type with regard to habit and germination, flowering five weeks from sowing and keeps on producing masses of flowers until the first hard frost. In the Moon Series, there are two new introductions Honey Moon, 14 inches, a bright canary yellow and Harvest Moon, 15 inches, a soft orange. These are very free flowering and base branching. Guys and Dolls grow to 10 inches in height and are an improved Dolly type, with uniform, huge 4% inch and white, Calypso is most eye-appealing with its lovely fringed flowers. Red Baron is an early vivid red, very free flowering, compact, with medium sized blooms. Comanche (and one of my special reds) is still very popular with its brilliant scarlet red flowers, blooming profusing all'summer. Although some people may not be too partial to Zinnias, I think they are ideal for beds and borders and there is nothing finer than the Peter Pan series. New this year is Peter Pan orange. All of these Zinnias are extremely showy, producing hundreds of 3 inch blooms until cut down by frost. They are so easy to grow too! These delightful little flowers grow approximately 6 inches in double blooms. Mr. Moonlight. height. Scarlet Ruffles grows grows 10 inches and produces 28 indies in height and is a clear yellow, ,1074 carnation-type flowers. It is a good bedder and useful also for pots. Petunias are among the showiest and most popular of bedding-out plants. Each year new varieties make their appearance and this year we have Saturn, 12 inches, two- tone cherry red grandiflora, with lighter centres. The plants are compact and uniform and the booms are large. Razzle Dazzle are new, Fl hybrids with masses of red. deep blue, deep rose and wine purple flowers all with broad white stripes. Royal Cascade is a rich purple, with large 3% inch flowers, very free flowering and early. Sky Cascade is a large flowered version of Sky Magic. Quite showy in baskets and window boxes, with its clear, sky blue flowers. Slightly later blooming than Sky Magic. Although not new, these are "tops" in the Petunia world Candy Apple, 13 inches, free blooming, base branching, with fiery-red blossoms. Last year, I grew louche and found it to be a real favorite. The flowers are a rich, rose-red, heavily fringed growing on dwarf, compact plants. Pink, white, and red Cascade should be in all gardens, especially if you plan to have window boxes or hanging baskets. There is nothing to equal them and they bloom all season long. The "'Magics" are always in demand for bedding or border plants. Sugar Daddy is an extra large, type, orchid in color with deeper veins. El Toro is early with large, bright intense red blooms that cover the compact, dwarf plants. If yon would like a bkrolor, scarlet hybrid version of the "cut and come family. It is an Ail-American Gold Medal winner for 1974, producing vivid, dark scarlet 2Vz inch, double ruffled blooms. It is excellent as a cut flower.

By MR. FIX Floors that slope so much that round objects roll across them, plaster that cracks and keeps on cracking, doors that won't open or close properly: these are signs of a sagging floor. A sagging floor is not an uncommon problem and one that is likely to happen as a house grows older. Girders under a post that are weak will cause the floor to sag. Trouble occurs with the girders because supporting posts were not placed properly. Or maybe the posts (and the girders as well) have started to rot." The problem frequently happens following remodelling as walls are relocated without getting additional support from below. Sometimes heavy appliances or heavy pieces of furniture located in one part of a room cause problems. Don't overlook the possibility that construction may have been at fault in the first place. Whatever the reason for the problem, correcting it should be done at the first sign of trouble. A sagging floor, left alone, gets worse instead of better. Find the place where sagging has occurred, where the problem is greatest. Use for old TV set that still works Moving picture bar By DONALD R. BRANN Those who own an older model TV that still operates perfectly in black and white, can now give old faithful a glamorous new lease on life, install it in a stand-up or L- shaped bar.

Mounted on casters, the bar can be rolled out of the way when not in use. A list of materials tells what to boy. It recommends using profinished hardwood plywood to build all bars.

Toronto Star Syndicate) Sheepish The expression "to pull the. wool over one's eyes" comes Irom the time when mtflemen wore white wigs, usually made of wool. Highwaymen would pull a vic- tim's wig down over iiis eves before relieving him of his wa'rti Examine the girders, using a level or straight edge to find the worst spot. Areas that are suspect: a corner where girders meet, a point at which girders have been spliced together. The remedy for a sagging floor is an item called a jack post. It is inexpensive, easy to use and relatively foolproof. The jack post is an adjustable metal post that you place under a sagging girder. It consists of two steel tubes, one inside the other. The height of the post is adjustable by way of a pin that slips through a series of holes in the inside tube. The pin rests on the top edge of the outside tube setting the post at the desired height. The holes are several inches apart so there is also a means for a finer adjustment. To adjust the post more closely and to slowly raise the floor there is a metal plate on top of the post, the plate resting on a heavy duty adjusting screw. The post rests on a base plate. The plate can be set right on the basement floor if the floor is in good condition. If it is badly cracked or is thin (less than four inches of concrete) a new base should be-made. You will have to break the floor to provide a hole for about a foot of concrete. When this is thoroughly dry you can set the post on it. The post is set under the girder and set to the nearest height with the pin. Then the screw is adjusted so that the top plate rests under the girder. Adjustment beyond this point must be done slowly. Quickly raising a sagging floor can cause damage. An adjustment of half a turn every week is enough. You can crack plaster and damage water lines if you work faster. Check with a level at intervals so that you will know when to stop. The jack post is strong enough and Inexpensive enough to leave in place as a permanent post once the sagging has been corrected.
