Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI lltHMIDOl HHAID Friday, Nbru.ry 11, HOME OF THE WEEK Good lighting enhances rooms DESIGN No CH-1079 HEUfLOOt-1032 SQ.FT. GAtAGt-aOOSQ.fT. itCONO fLOOl-9Oo SO.fT, The Colonial home is fast gaining in popularity because it offers so much for the mon- ey especially for the large family. Here is a Design which embodies the charm of the true colonial but with a mod- ern concept and layout. The circulation on both floors is ex- cellent. If you want a huge living room'with fireplace, this Design has it. But. that is no all on the lower floor you have a spacious Kitchen with nook, a large dining area, and a library which could be used as a family room or an addi- tional bedroom. Behind the ga- rage there is a utility area. HOMOGRAF CO. OF CANADA 40 JARVIS ST. TORONTO 1, ONTARIO Please send me further details about how to obtain standard builder blueprints for Design No. CH-1079 Or enclosed please find for which send me the new Design Book entitled "Third Edition-Subur- ban and Country Homes Designed For Canadians. NAME ADDRESS (Leth.) WORLD ALMANAC FACTS The piranha is a deadly fish native to South Ameri- can rivers. The piranha has powerful jaws and razor- sharp, triangular teeth that are capable o! killing men and cattle, The World Al- manac notes. A school of piranha can reduce an. am- Dial to a skeleton in a few jnioutes. Home improvement means to. most people new appliances for the kitchen, new wall to-wall carpeting for the living room, a second or a family room added to the house. More homeowners might keep in mind the one way in which they can improve every room in the'house by adding a single in- gredient improved lighting. Whea parents realize that in their child's schoolroom or a modern business office, there is probably 15 to 30 times as much light as in the home living room, for instance, and that outdoors on a sunny day the light level may be 500 times that in the home, homeowners can see why it's a safe guess that more light is needed in every room of the house. SUGGESTIONS How about a really good study lamp for the teen age stu- dent's room? How about fastening some simple fluorescent fixtures to the underside of the kitchen cabinets to give tetter light n eountertops? Why not make TV viewing more comfortable by fastenine a tubular or regular light bulb, about 25-60 watts, to the back of he TV set to provide necessary 'surround" lighting? Wouldn't it be easier to pu on make up in the bathroom (or for the man of the house :o shave) if there were light on each side of the mirror and a piling fixture directly ove the front edge of the sink? LIGHTING TRICKS And in the living room ther are lots of little lighting "tricks that can make a great big dif ference in the over all atrac ttveness of the room. Lighted valances over win- dows will "wash" draperies with light, accenting material pat- tern and color and texture. A chain hung decorative lighting fixture will create an unusual point of interest in a corner area. Art objects and paintings can be highlighted with ceiling- mounted fixtures or portable high intensity lamps. A fluorescent tube fastened to the back of a wide piece of fur- niture will "uplight" the wall behind it. And lighted cabinets wil make collections of books and special "knick-knacks" drama tic conversation pieces. WORLD ALMANAC FACTS Jenny Lind, known as the "Swedish was the most popular singer in America in 1850. The World Almanac recalls that her first concert was at Castle Garden in New York City, on Sept. She made an enormously successful tour'of the United States under the management of P. T. Barnum, and returned to Europe in 1852. YOUR GARDEN By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. Single car garage. 3 different plans RED AND WHITE FOR DAZZLING COLOR WITH L__ Valentine's Day o n Sunday, this gave me an idea that a red and white color scheme in some of your beds next summer might prove to be quite interesting. For those who may be growing their own plants it is time to start think- ing about some of them now. The following are among some of the most popular of the annuals. These, come in varying heights each suited to a particular situation, with planting dates beside each, to be used as a guide: PANSY Clear Crystals, white and scarlet, Jan. 16.

SALVIA Pron- to 15 inches. Redcoat 10 inches, April 10. There are many oth- ers, but I have tried most of these with wonderful success. Now that you have a variety of red and white flowers, it might be an idea to give you a few suggestions as to what you may do with them. Petunias are one of the showiest and most popular of all annuals. A bed, circular or any other shape filled with red petunias and bordered with white alys- sum is bright and cheery. Eed and white Magic planted in front of taller annuals or per- ennials may be white matricaria, edged with alyssum or ageratum. For window boxes, planters or hanging baskets. Red and white Cascade are ideal. A border along a vege- table bed or red and white phlox makes a striking effect against the greenery of the veg- etables. For a spot of color in the rockery the Floral Carpet Snap is just the thing. These are also nice for the front of planters. ___ whites in varying heights and forms (round and spike) of the flowers mention- ed above. Do not plant them all in straight rows bring some of the groups (the taller plants in groups of around three and the dwarfer ones in groups of five) slightly forward so the overall effect is more appealing. You would need a fairly wide border, at least four to five feet. Make a plan on paper before you start and real- ly have fun. At least it will be different! Mrs. T. I am growing pep- pers in my greenhouse but the buds drop off. What is the cause of this? Ans. This could be caused by unfavorable weather condi- tions, a change in temperature. Also, by blossom end rot which is caused mostly by un- even watering.
