Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THI LETHBRIDOI HERALD - Friday, January IS, 1971 HOME OF THE WEEK Worn doorsills need checking ALTERNATIVE LAY-OUT.. (WITHOUT OPTIONAL STAIB.) Of 1 c n No. c (,ro und Mo ir Sec vv) Flo Car aye 440 stcoND noon run. HOMOGRAF COMPANY OF CANADA 40 JARVIS STREET,  TORONTO 1. ONTARIO. This most attractive COLONIAL has an exceptionally convenient plan plus several unusual features. Note the Living-Family area may be opened into one large room over 28 feet long. Incidentally this same area in the basement is available for a Recreation Room. If desired a fireplace (as indicated in the Living Room) could also be included in the recreation area. Another special feature is an optional stair close to the side entrance. Even with this stair, table space would still be ample - (see detail). Also included on the ground floor is a laundry, a lavatory and a den. The latter could be used for a separate dining room or even an extra bedroom if desired. Upstairs there are two large bedrooms (one with its own lavatory) plus two smaller rooms. Construction is a combination of Brick, Stone and Frame. (Copyright 1970.

Distaff side The expression, "distaff side," means the female branch (maternal line) of a family. The expression stems from the time when women spun thread from a distaff, a staff for holding bunches of wool or flax. By MR. FIX Like worn and unshined shoes with a new suit, a worn door-sill on an otherwise well-kept house mars the entire effect. The door sill, or threshold, gets a great deal of wear, perhaps more than anything else in the house. It is stepped on and worn down. Weather beats at it. It is subject to decay. More than appearance is involved. Once it has begun to wear it fails its main function -closing the gap between door and floor. Include the doorsill when you paint. Paint it between times as well. Sand thoroughly each time and paint frequently. Keep out moisture by calking all joints around the sill. When a sill becomes badly worn or has started to rot, replace it with a new one. Stock thresholds are available at most lumber dealers. If you can't get the exact size buy one slightly larger and cut it to fit. If possible remove the old threshold in one piece. Use it as a pattern for the new one. Open the door so that it clears the threshold. If it doesnt, re move the door from its hinges. Remove the door stop. This is the thin strip of wood fas tened vertically to the door jamb. Pry out gently with a chisel so that you do not damage it. Sometimes the doorsill will come out at this point with no further trouble. In other cases the edges of the sill are under the jamb. If you can't pry out the old sill, use a mallet and chisel to split it. You oan save yourself this work, but add some to another part of the job by cutting the old sill flush with the jamb. Use a backsaw. If you do this you will have to measure the new material so that it does not fit under the jamb but instead is flush with pieces of old material you left behind. After you have pried up the old doorsill examine the area for old nails that might be sticking up. Remove these com pletely. Do not pound them in since they may work their way out and up into the new threshold. Measure the new sill and trim where needed. When you are certain of the fit, put a coating of roofing compound on the underside. Add another to the surface on which it will rest. To avoid splitting, drill pilot holes for the finishing nails. Make the holes slightly smaller than the nails and stagger them on both sides of a center line Set the nails so that heads are below the surface. Fill with wood filler, sand and finish, Calk where the sill rests on exterior surfaces and along all joint lines. Complete this before painting. Then use a good grade of floor and deck enamel.

WHAT'S NEW FOR '71 pEOPLE are always looking 1 for something different. It would be very dull and uninter esting if we grew the same things year in and year out. Half the fun is growing and experimenting and anticipating what the results will be with the new varieties that come before us each season. From the October issue of a small booklet - George J. Ball Inc. "Grower Talks", I think that you, the readers, would be interested in some of the top-notch flowers for 1971. PETUNIAS - These still seem to be one of the most popular of all annuals. Single Grandifloras - Fl ambassador - an interesting, very bright red newcomer this year, a bit earlier than EI Toro - in fact, it was about the earliest red. Pleasing, free-flowering - not enough experience to really nail it down. Fl Apollo - Another new Fl Hybrid white. It's very early - the earliest white in our pack trials. Flowers seemed to retain a sort of tubular, or star shape, for several days prior to opening fully. Again, this is one we will want to watch another year. Fl Chiffon Cascade - again looks like a winner in petunias. It's a fine, large and very free-flowering grandiflora. It's a pleasing light pink shade - we can only say that women love the color! It seems to carry above-average resistance to wind and rain damage. Fl Dwarf Double Grandiflora Duet. These large- Wetaskiwin race is worth $70,000 Famed art work on Guinea coin By MORT REED ! Long recognized as one of the world's most beautiful paintings, the "Naked Maja" by Spanish artist Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) is portrayed as the obverse design on Equatorial Guinea's proof 10O-pesetas coin for 1970. This very unusual coin measures 40 millimeters In diameter, slightly larger than the U.S. silver dollar, and is minted in a frosted proof condition. Frosted proofs retain a mirror- iike finish background, but the inscription and device appear with a frosted satin surface. Spokesmen for Equatorial Guinea announced that this is the first time this famous art has appeared -ox* .any nation's coinage. There are 15 pieces in the 1970 profit set. The 100-pesetas piece shown may be acquired separately. An illustrated brochure is available free from Paramount International Coin Corp., Paramount Building, Englewood, Ohio 45322.

Phone 327-7663, 327-5905 ALEX PUSTASERI WHtr-1 YOU BUY FOR A LIFETIME-INSIST ON THE BEST-A PUSTASERI HOME flowered double petunias seem to be picking up steam - they make a very good showing in pack trials. A bit later flowering than the single grandifloras, but they are fine, big double flowers, and they stay fairly dwarf in the pack. Duet is a new color in the class - a rich, warm, pleasing salmon-a n d-white bicolor. A good free-flowering grandiflora double. Some people seem to have trouble to make Cascade petunias "Cascade". The procedure is almost the reverse of bedding plant petunia culture. The object is to keep growing with no checks to produce a soft growth. When pricking out from flats pot up into 2V4 inch Jiffy Pots as there is less possibility of checking growth. Soil mix is 1 part soil, 1 part peat and 1 part perlite. Grow in a temperature of 65 degrees F., not less than 60 degrees F. Feed twice a week with a complete liquid fertilizer. When plants are 8 inches tall give them a s o f t pinch. Use five plants to a 14 inch redwood hanging planter and six plants to a 16 inch wire basket, lined with sphagnum moss prior to filling with soil mix. In setting plants in these containers, put one plant in the centre and the rest equally spaced around the edge. Set plants on an angle so that the end of the stem slants upward and outward over the edge of the container. Reduce liquid feed to once a week. Plants should stall to hang before they are removed from the greenhouse. AGERATUM - Fl Summer Snow. It has the uniformity and the dwarf, prominent flowers of Blue Blazer, and it's a clear white. Uniformity not perfect but being an Fl hybrid it is nearly so. Lots of work going on by breeders generally on ageralums - and here is good one. GERANIUM - Fl Carefree Fickle Rose. A pleasing bright rose-and-white bicolor. Flowers are typical, large Carefree-style. Seemed a bit more free-flowering than Fickle Scarlet. HOLLYHOCK - Silver Puffs. Dwarf habit (about 2 feet high). Makes a more pyramid-shaped bush. MARIGOLD-Fl Apollo. Sister to Moonshot. Dwarf - about 14 inches with very large flowers, round, double and uniform. SNAPS - Fl Little Darling. Pentstemon-like flowers in a dwarf form, about 12 inches. Color range on the pastel side. Al-American Bronze Medal winner for 1971. ZINNIA -Fl Mini-Salmon. Bright Salmon, very compact and free flowering. Fl Peter Pan Series. Here's a brand new and surely exciting group of zinnias, fully double and uniform :i inch flowers on Hi to 12 inch plants. There is Peter One of the biggest snowmobile events on the continent with a total purse of $70,000 up for competition, is slated for Wetaskiwin Feb. 5-7. The North-Am International Snowmobile Association race committee and the Alberta Shriners have joined forces to produce a race event that is expected to see competitors from Europe and the United States as well as all regions of Canada, on hand for the action. Profit from the event will be used by the Shriners in their hospital work for crippled children. H. A. Taylor, illustrious potentate of the Al Azhar Shrine Temple in Calgary, says the Wetaskiwin races will be the only one of its kind in North America sponsored by the Shrine. Of the $70,000 total to be of- fered in prizes, $20,000 will be the guaranteed purse for the second annual North-Am International competition and up to $50,000 will be open to competitors in the Shrine Internationa] events. As many as 500 competitors are expected to vie for portions of the big prize bag. On the basis of past performance, the event is expected to draw thousands of snowmobile fans and other interested spectators. The show is one destined to put Wetaskiwin on the map in a big way as the North-Am event is the only international snowmobile race in the West sanctioned by the North Western Snowmobile Association of Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan and the Western Snowmobile Association of the Western U.S. Room divider adds to privacy Wooico SHop SATURDAY 3.33 SAVE .63 RIDE 'EM TOYS ChociM from Heinz Ketchup, Mr. Peanut or Campbell's Soup.
