Upper " *J� � � Lowtr � sir* * This Split Level combination brick and frame Design with its uncluttered wall spaces and floor areas is a comfortable, labor-saving home which every family will enjoy. The three levels, divided into work, living and sleeping areas are planned for easy traffic circulation. With the garage and utility area designed for the lower level, the first level includes a separate entry, fireplace in the living area and a terrace opening off the dining room and kitchen.

NAME .. ADDRESS (Leth.) Tallest Tree The world's tallest living thing is a California redwood on the east bank of Redwood Creek, Humboldt City, Calif. It is 367.8 feet high with a girth of 44 feet. First Striking Clock The first clock to strike the hours was made by Benjamin Banneker, a Negro, in 1754. Without having ever seen anything similar except  sun dial and a watch, he constructed a clock which kept time for more than 20 years. Care can aid lock problems By MR. FIX I Struggling with a balky lock any time of the year is a nuisance but it is a double nuisance when it happens in the winter. A frozen lock is something you are likely to encounter on a car door. A cigarette lighter to warm the key is a handy thing at such a time; Dipping' the key in alcohol will help. The defroster sprays used for windshields can be useful if sprayed over the lock in order to break the ice film. If the lock is kept dry and snow is brushed away from the door handle you are less likely to have trouble. If you have trouble with certain locks on your house freezing it may be because they are exposed to the weather. Try to protect them from moisture. Lack of a storm door will cause trouble. Keep locks working easily by spraying powdered graphite into the lock. Never use ordinary lubricating oils since they cause the lock parts to become gummy. Especially exasperating is to have a key break off in the lock. Try holding the remaining part of the key firmly against the part in the lock, then try to turn it. If this will not work, try a piece of stiff so you will have no trouble hi' serting the key all the way. Make sure the key is in before turning, A wrong key will cause trouble because it may fit the lock but will then bind and break, Keep keys well marked if they look similar. Failure to keep a lock lubricated will cause binding. So Storage space in almost every home is a universal problem. Older houses with large areas of waste space invariably have few closets. Newer houses that lack attics or basements to absorb an overflow of household possessions pose the same problem. If this situation arouses your interest, you can build them easily and1 economically with the simplified instructions in a new 48 page booklet entitled "How to Build Wall to Wall Storage Units. It tells how to build storage for everything from clothing to tennis rackets, sewing equipment to a laundry room. You can start with one unit in any space from four to twenty-four feet. Directions explain how to lay out and build necessary framing, cover framing with plywood, install a nandsome set of sliding, bi-folding, or pivot hinged doors. Units can be built' 6', 8' or from floor to ceiling. Installation of necessary hardware, magnetic catches, etc., is illustrated in detail. Construction of many different types of storage units are illustrated, cabinets to fill space above floor units, free-standing storage room dividers, etc, An estimating guide tells how to figure materials. Using the booklet as your guide, you can build cabinets that look like decorator designed units. Not only will you enjoy the convenience of extra storage space, order to.Carpentry Dept., The Lethbridge Herald Box 806 Adelaide St. P.O., Toronto 1, Ont, for Book No. 634 How to Build Wall to Wall Storage Units, Send $1.00 additional for catalogue illustrating 300 other books and patterns.

Toronto Star Syndicate) wire and bend a hook over the end of it (or get a fine crochet hook.) Insert the top of the key and pull back to bring the broken piece out. You then have a complete key from which a duplicate can be made. Only other treatment is to remove the lock cylinder and remove the piece by pushing from the other end. This kind of accident happens when you fail to push the key all the way in. Keep the lock lubricated with graphite will a poorly made duplicate key, _ . If the key turns but the bolt but you will also substantially doesn't, the trouble may be increase the value of your with the door rather than the home lock.

When you ulVi YOUR GARDEN By habelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. SEED CATALOGUES | COME of the colorful 1971 seed and nursery catalogues will soon bo coming our way. After Christmas, our thoughts begin to turn to what seeds we should plant for a garden full of color next year, along with all the luscious vegetables. I look forward with pleasure, and enjoy reading the different catalogues almost as much as I do a good novel. You can spend many a relaxing evening doing your armchair shopping. This is a very changing work) and even the seed and nursery catalogues must keep up with the times. Just what constitutes a good catalogue? One that states ordering instructions simply and in a few sentences; products accurately described and competitively priced; a stated guarantee; cultural instructions and approximate height of plant; germination time and time of bloom; most widely accepted common name md correct botannical name. Some are beautifully illustrated with colored pictures. Catalogues usually give the ultimate height of trees and shrubs, but most do not include the maximum spread. This is quite important to gardeners who often find, to their dismay, a tree or shrub has spread out more than they anticipated. A person often asks himself whether he should buy a smaller, lower priced item. If you are a novice it is best to purchase a more ma ture plant - experiment later. Superior stock may cost a little more but it is a bargain in the end. Sometimes, however, new introductions are priced higher than established varieties. There are a great variety of seed and nursery catalogues. To begin with, do not forget those of your local suppliers If these people are to stay in business and improve their offerings they must have your support. If there is something that you especially like mention it to your local dealer and perhaps, in the future, he will try and accommodate you. .Others which may be useful are: Stokes Seeds, St. Catharines, Ontario, who offer an excellent variety of vegetables end flowers, including a wonderful selection of petunias, which are considered one of the most popular of all annuals. Also many garden supplies and accessories. Dominion Seed House, Georgetown, Ontario, who offer numerous varieties of vegetables and flowers as well as many novelties, etc. T. and T. Seeds, Winnipeg, Manitoba, who advertise, "Get The Most For Less", have a very nice seed catalogue, of seeds, bulbs, plants and trees. Pike and Co, Edmonton, Alberta, have specially selected seeds and nursery stock,-etc. for the northwest, suitable for short season areas. For those who are interested in water lilies, Moore Water Gardens, Port Stanley, Ontario has a most complete selection. Lacombe Nurseries, Lacombe, Alberta, have a love ly catalogue all in color. In 1970 we were privileged to have our house and front yard on their cover. They feature a wide selection of trees, shrubs perennials, etc. Alberta Nurseries at Bowden, Alberta, also have some very fine nursery slock. For the rose fancier there is McConnell Nursery, Port Burwell, Ontario, and Carl Pallek, Box 137, Virgil, Ontario. Thompson and Morgan, Ipswich, England, has seeds of many unusual plants in a very large selection. Then thore is Unwins, Histon, Cambridge, England; Bees, Sealand, Chester, England; Samuel Dobie and Son, Chester, England. George W. Park Seed Co. Greenwood, South Carolina 29646, has a very interesting and worth while catalogue; W. Atlee Burpee Co., Clinton, Iowa, advertise "Everything For The Garden". This gives you quite a number to choose from. There are many, many more. Do try something new next year, and every year. But, keep some of the old reliables that have served you so well in the past. I would like to wish all readers a Very Happy New Year and a most Prosperous 1971. All questions should be sent with self-addressed, stamped envelope to Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 Centre B. St. N. W.
