Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta t HOME OF THE WEEK Friday, February 23, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 Canadian diplomat hit on TV DESIGN R3-1G0O Long, low lines and wide overhangs enhance the exterior  appearance of the up-to-date ranch design, illustrated. But the interior is just as attractive. The entrance is recessed and well protected by porch roof, which is an extension of the roof line. The front hall gives access to both living room and family room, the latter having an imposing fireplace and glass doors leading to the garden. The fireplace could be extended to include a barbecue on the terrace. Wide floor-to-ceiling windows flood the living room with natural light. However there is still ample wall space for furniture placement. The master bedroom has its own bath en suite, one of the three in the house. A convenient laundry is located on ground Home-O-Graph Home Planning Service | 40 JARVIS ST., TORONTO, ONTARIO MSC 2H1 I ( ) < ) ( ) I enclose $1.00 each (plus 25 cents for handling and mailing) for two new books "Home Design for Canadians".

(Copyright 1073. Toronto Star Syndicate) HAIFA (AP) - "Television has ruined America, and it could ruin Israel too,' warns American comedian George Jessel. Jessel, on a two-week visit to Israel with 120 Canadian tourists, told a reporter. "Don't extend your TV broadcasting time. TV has ruined America and it will ruin you too, if you don't keep it within its present two - hours - a - day limit." Israel's one television channel presents about an hour of children's programs, an hour and a half of Arabic programming and two hours of Hebrew-language broadcasts each evening. Many Israelis also watch television broadcasts from neighboring Jordan. Expressing fear that the Israeli social scene would lose its charm and excitement, the 74-year-old entertainer cautioned Israelis to learn from what has happened to the United States: "New York has only three papers left, compared to Tel Aviv's 14, and Americans have stopped doing almost everything but look at their TV screens." By RAY DICK SAIGON (CP) - Canadian Ambassador Michel Gauvin has become a hit on Vietnamese television after just one appearance-at least as far as the pro-government Saigon Post is concerned. In an editorial-page column entitled The Winds of Hope are Upon Us, writer Quang Minh says Gauvin, as chairman of the International Commission of Control and Supervision (ICCS), "sounded like the man for the job." "His performance on the TV program People Want to Know, should be assurance enough that if there are any deficiencies in the ICCS it will not be due to the commission's shortcomings but on the part of those directly concerned with the ceasefire." Therein lies the heart of the matter, says Minh. "History is replete with lessons of the cabal, the double-cross, the imilmg mask of diplomacy to hide the gun under the negotiating table. Hitler and Stalin did it; so did Nomura in the hectic days before Pearl Harbor." SINCERITY NEEDED He says the ceasefire is affected by the sincerity or lack of it of the parties concerned. "What can and should an observer, reporter and even an arbiter do?" he asks. "Will Canada really pull out if after 60 days the parties concerned fail, to take the ceasefire seriously?" As the first 30 days of the ceasefire come around, he writes, the skeptics have the makings of a case. The optimists, he continues, have an equally convincing case. He mentions the fact that tte South Vietnamese government has said it is not adverse to establishing diplomatic relations with the North, when and if the Communists show goodwill and good faith. Arab sheikdom Muscat and Oman on the southeastern part of the Arabian Peninsula cover about as much land as Kansas, but with only about half the population, an estimated 750,000. Capital, Muscat, has some 6,200 population.

Young, F.R.H.S. PRUNING "EXTREME care should be used in pruning trees and shrubs. It is much better to cut too little than too much. Before doing any pruning, make sure you know why you are doing it. Don't go out and cut off branches hap-hazardl, just for the sake of cutting them out. There are several good reasons for purning, such as 1. To balance top growth to root growth. This is necessary when transplanting and possibly at other times, as shown by smaller leaves, fewer flowers and branches. 2. To remove diseased or damaged branches. 3. To increase bloom of flowering shrubs. 4. To shape a tree to a desired form. 5. To remove bad features of trees such as deep "V" notches, which tend to split. Most trees and shrubs are best pruned in March or early April, but Birch, Maple and Walnut (and there are the odd few people who do grow Walnut trees) are best left until summer when their growth is nearly completed, that is, when the leaves have fully develop' ed, otherwise bleeding could oc cur. This would result in serious damage to the tree. Spring flowering specimens such as Lilacs, Honeysuckle Flowering Plum, should be pruned immediately after flowering so as to give the plants time to form next year's flower buds before fall. Too early pruning in the spring will cut down on the current year's flowers, while too late pruning after flowering may eliminate next year's flowers. Later flowering shrubs or those that tend to "tip kill" such as Mock Orange, Potentil-la, Nanking Cherry, Spirea, cut out older shoots right to the ground before growth starts, and remove any dead or broken branches. This helps to promote vigorous new growth and blossoms. After flowering has finished, you can prune lightly. Shrubs such as Willows, Red stemmed Dogwood and Pruple Leaf Plum are also pruned at this time as it is the new growth that has the highest color. After planting conifers, trim off only enough to balance the plant. Pine should only be pruned in the spring when the new growth (candles) have attained full length but before the needles are produced. Cut candles up to three-quarters of their length. This is the only stage of growth when new buds will develop at the cut surface Spruce, Fir and Larch are pruned in the early spring on new growth, before it is fully grown and becomes mature and woody. Cedar and Juniper are clipped when new growth is completed, in early summer, while still soft. Care hould be used in cutting large branches. If quite large, use a sharp saw and undercut halfway then finish cutting from the top a little farther out. Finally cut stub off. Trim stub with a sharp knife or wood chisel to an oval shape and flush with the tree. A smooth, flush job will heal much faster and is less likely to become diseased. Small twigs are best cut with a sharp knife in an upward slanting direction, ranches from Vz inch to % inch are cut with pruning scissors, unless you are experienced in using a  knife. Cover wounds, especially large ones, with a protective preparation which sterilizes the wound. When trimming hedges, do not make the top of the hedge too wide as this makes it too difficult to cut. Also, the leaves don't grow properly near the bottom. Nearly all hedges require trimming two or three times a year, the first about mid-June, the second in July to clean up new or ragged growth, and sometimes a third trimming may be needed in early fall. *  NOTE: I omitted to mention, that beginning the 1st of January, 1973, there would be a charge of .25 cents for each question sent to me requiring an answer. NOTE: All questions should be sent with self  addressed-stamped, envelope to - Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 Centre B. St. N.W., Calgary 43. Due to the number of letters asking more than one question it is requested in fntnre enquiries that only ONE question be submitted each time as it is impossible for Mrs. Young to reply to all correspondence and do her practical gardening as well. Temperature important Flowers and vegetables have different temperature likes and dislikes. For instance, such vegetables as lettuce, spinach and such flowers as sweet pea and larkspur grow best when the weather is cool to cold. That's the reason why seeds of these are sown just as soon,as the soil can be worked in early spring. WORLD ALMANAC FACTS Cities are a universal symbol of civilization which have served as places  where people gathered for mutual safety and defense. Cities have gone on to be-come marketplaces for goods and ideas, seats of government, and centers of religious devotion, The World Almanac notes. By division of labor and by easing communication between people, cities created the opportunity to invent new technologies and new ways of viewing life. Copyright c 1072 Newspaper Enterprise Assn.
