Here is a modern design that offers generous living space for a home just over the 1200 sq. ft.' minimum required by many municipalities. Bedroom closets are roomy and there is also a large linen closet plus extra storage space in the bathroom. The kitchen has good counter space and room for a breakfast table. A wall oven with separate plate is in- dicated'but an ordinary type stove could be used if desired. An optional layout showing a ground floor laundry and lavatory is included. Construction is brick veneer but instructions are supplied for building in frame if desired. The design is suitable for any type of heating and could be built on a 60 foot lot without the garage or 75 feet with the one car garage'as shown. Of course any builder could increase the garage to two car size as this would in- volve no basic structural change. ADDRESS (Please Print) -The Herald- At Home Your Garden Successful seed germination By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. Planting seeds is the easy part, but getting them to ger- minate is sometimes quite dif- ficult. I'm sure, most of us, at one time or another, have purchased packets of seeds land some are quite expen- planted them and waited and waited for them to germinate, only to be disap- pointed because none, or very lew came up. There are a number of things that could cause this. Improper temperature is one usually being too low. I have a small greenhouse but always ger- minate all my seeds on a counter in the kitchen where a proper temperature can be maintained, and I get ex- cellent results. The following is a table which I think should be of value for those who like to grow their own bedding out plants. Some seeds ger- minate best in light others do best in darkness and some are not too fussy, either L or D. AGERATUM-65 to 75 deg. time to germinate six to 14 days approximately, depending on conditions under which they are grown. Alyssum 65 to 75 deg. LD 6 to 14 days AMARANTHUS 65 to 75 deg.

L. seven to 14 days or longer. STOCK 54 to 91 deg. D, six to 15 days, SWEET PEA 65 to 75 deg. (54 is better still) seven to 12 days, DL. ZINNIA 65 to 75 deg. DL, three to 12 days. Moisture is another factor to take into consideration with regard to ol seeds. Let your flat soak up water by setting it in the sink or any other container, and when the top starts to show wet. remove it at once. The moisture will soon spread over toe whole top surface ol the soil and should be enough to keep the compost damp un- til the seeds have come up, provided a piece of glass is placed on top of flat to conserve moisture. Some plants like Salvia, Impatiens and Zinnias resent too much water and causes them to "damp off." Too little, on the other hand, could result in poor and uneven germination. If you are contemplating a new greenhouse, docnot use creosote to preserve the wood because the fumes could cause serious damage to plants. Copper naphthenate is the one that is recommended to be safe for this purpose. Some of you will have started or be starting seeds in- doors or in the greenhouse. To help with planting dates, soil mixtures, seeding, pricking out, best varieties to purchase, plant diseases and any problems that pertain to gardening, indoors and out, the second printing of "Better Ways ,To Successful Gardening" by Charles and Isabelle R. Young is now out. This is available at book, department and other stores, the Lethbridge Herald or the Albertan in Calgary and other various outlets. Carpentry Corner Kitchen modernization OPTIONAL LAYOUT to include Laundry, Ratio Stonei laid on Sand. ._' Sears SATURDAY SPECIALS LIMITED QUANTITIES STARTS A.M. PERSONAL SHOPPING (INLY! It necessity is the mother of invention you can't honestly proscribe the need for a lazy susan to laziness. Nor can you attribute a need for kitchen modernization to the convenience it affords, the status it generates or the capital gains it adds to the value of your home. Installing a susan in a corner cabinet, on a table or almost'ariywhere else makes a lot of sense. It's far better to twirl a shelf than oneself. Besides the energy saved, it provides far more convenient storage space. Letting machines and storage space simplify the work load is the theme of a new book, "How To Moder- nize A Kitchen." To tran- sform a kitchen into a labor saving machine that is fun to use and a delight to live with, is not difficult, nor need it be expensive. No special creative skill or carpentry ex- perience is required to plan and modernize a kitchen. Since every home improve- ment job you accomplish increases the value of your home, buying materials and tools is an investment one that pays capital gains when you sell your house. Moderniz- ing a kitchen is one of the soundest investments you can make. It is one room that sells or stops the sale of a house more than any other. Because kitchens vary in size, shape, and location of equipment, windows and doors, as you read through this extremely helpful book, place a check mark alongside those paragraphs and il- lustrations that refer to your kitchen. This will permit ready reference when you start actual work. If any step of the procedure isn't com- pletely clear ask your lumber dealer to clarify same. Send in cheque or money order for Book No. 608, How To Modernize A to Carpentry Department, Lethbridge Herald, Box 4090, Station A, Toronto, Ontario M5W 1M9.
