IS'.0-XI2'-7" BED RM. .BED RM. S'-3" LJAUN. FAMILY RM. itf.fi'XIO'-ll" DESIGN R3 598 SQ. FT. It is sometimes difficult to find an attractive house plan to fit a narrow lot and still have enough room for the growing family. The design illustrated could be just the one. Many zoning jurisdictions require at least 1200 sq. ft. of liv- ing space and this plan meets that requirement comfortably. The U shaped kitchen is efficiently positioned between the liv- ing room and family room, the latter has windows overlooking the front and side of the house. This plan has a ground level laundry and one and a half bathrooms. The double garage situated in the front affords overhead shelter lor the main entrance, and since it measures 19 by 21 feet the doors can be located in any of the three outside walls. Though the illustration shows frame exterior, the plans include conversion details for building in brick veneer, and this design suits any type of. heating. Design R3 565 is very similar but larger, sq. ft.

Geraniums are one of the most popular, free flowering plants for summer bedding, window boxes, planters, pots, window and greenhouse culture. These semi shrubby plants, commonly known as geraniums are botanically or more correctly called "Pelargoniums." There are hundreds of varieties in ex- istence, either single, semi double or double. There are white and many shades of pink, orange, scarlet, red and purple crimson, as well as the fancy leaved ones which are grown for foliage color rather than flowers. Some are also very sweetly scented: There are four groups into which geraniums fall the scented leaf ones; the ivy leaf, grown for their trailing habit; the show variety of Lady Washington and the zonal. These latter are the onesvthat are used to give us added color to our gardens. Some people brought their plants indoors last fall to en- joy during the winter months. However, you cannot expect them to bloom continuously outdoors as well as in. If they are not. given lots of sun and light while indoors and if kept too warm they will refuse to flower freely, and they go "leggy." If you would like to grow some geraniums from seed, especially the Carefrees, now is the time to sow them for summer flowering. Since their introduction in 1967, they have proved to be an out- standing and popular variety. There are 13 colors available, including bright pink, crim- son, deep salmon, fickle rose, fickle scarlet, light pink, light salmon, picotee, red, rose, scarlet, white and the new Carefree coral. All grow approximately 14 inches high. Good results with Carefrees may be obtained by planting in equal parts of peat moss, loam and perlite, or some peo- ple use two parts loam with equal parts of peat moss and sand. Cover seed 'A inch and water carefully. The temperature is probably the most critical fac- tor in germination. A constant soil temperature of between 70 and 75 degrees should be maintained. Anything lower than that will result in irregular and slow ger- mination. Up to 80 degrees is fine, but no higher. It is also very important not to let the seeds dry out while ger- minating so cover flat with a piece of' glass to prevent evaporation of moisture. To keep an even, soil temperature, try putting flat on a heating pad or wherever else is suitable to maintain this. If all conditions have been good, the tiny seedlings should be ready to prick out in approximately 20 days from date of sowing. Sprinter is another variety that is worth trying. Sometime around the end of February or beginning of March you could take cuttings from your plants. I have often heard comments "I have no luck at all. with cuttings." Why not experiment a little take cuttings with a sharp knife just below a node or leaf joint, three to four inches is about right. Allow as many leaves to remain on that is consistent with a well balanc- ed slip, because it is in the leaves where the substance for rooting is manufactured. Plant some in pots in different mixtures and place in several spots in the hou'se or greenhouse, giving some sun all day and others sun and part shade. Some in warmer conditions than others and have a few just in plain water. I have excellent success with putting the slips into a very small amount of water, just enough to cover the cut end of the stem. Change the water occasionally. Some methods work better for one person than another. Try something different Briza maxima or Quaking Grass, 18 inches. A lovely or- namental grass for arrangements, with tiny seed heads that flutter in the breeze. The color is a light fawn. Carpentry Corner Going to the birds Despite massive warnings concerning the destructive changes that have already thrown our natural resources out of 3 whack, relatively few people realize how g strongly our lives are dependent on those of the birds, bees and even skunks. Last year entire countries were infested with an invasion of caterpillars that stripped trees of their leaves and covered shrubs g: with a webbing that destroyed the plants. Houses, bushes and branches transform- s': ed some of the nation's richest cpm- S munities into what appeared to be a movie 8 setting for "Tobacco Road" or the dust ;S bowl of the thirties. The ecologists tell us the imbalance in g bird and wildlife was one factor that 3 allowed this condition to develop. A se- tt cond spring of the same infestation, they g warned, would destroy all tree life in the area. 8 If only one fiftieth of the billions spend g; on welfare were directed towards increas- ing our natural resources, we could help more birds, bees and wildlife continue to do the job nature needs done. g; Bird feeders and houses provide two a ways every homeowner can help the birds in their neighborhood feel welcome. A new g book that explains how to build four if: different bird houses and two different bird feeders is now available. The construction of each is so simplified, everyone from a six year old to a senior citizen can build them. Like nature that links leaves to branches, and branches to trees, and trees to the needs of birds and bees, building a bird house or feeder also links man to his environment. Time is "man's biggest problem. Every' hour that hangs heavy helps destroy his peace of mind. Without peace of mind man has nothing. Learning to work with his hands, spending every spare hour building something, helps create tension free time zones. After you have provided sufficient facilities for your home, offer same for sale through school, church or community fund raising bazaars. Construction of each house and feeder is simplified to the nth degree. Full size patterns of important parts so simplify construction, these projects are ideal in teaching the "slow to learn" how to work with their hands.
