D Please send an order form so that I may order building plans for the design shown above NAME ADDRESS (PIMM Print) LETH DESIGN T4-1619 Fine styling makes this gambrel-roofed design a true winner. Brick and frame ex- terior, window and door detailing, second low rise chimney from family room and flower boxes on garage windows all contribute to its Dutch Colonial charm. Interior layout is full of thoughtful ideas. A centrally located tiled foyer opens to all important areas of the house, the living room, the family room and the kitchen. There is a separate dining room, a ground floor laundry, a powder room, a bar in the family room and many large cupboards throughout. The four upstairs bedrooms are all of comfortable size. Master bedroom not only has an en suite bathr with cor- ner bath but an extra large walk-in closet. This home is as functional as it is attractive. (Copyright 1974. Toronto Star Syndicate) COVERS MANY WALLS The world's largest mural is by David Siqueiros. It covers square feet and consists of 54 panels. It was unveiled in 1968 in Mexico City. Herald- At Home Plan extra storage first By MR. FIX No house has enough storage space. If you are building or remodeling you can plan extra storage space before the work is completed. If you are living in an older home and have no plans to remodel then finding new storage space may fee a problem. All storage is a personal matter. It differs from family to family. The right approach to solving the problem is to start by determining what you must store, then determine the best way to do it. Make an inventory so you know whether it's books, linen, clothes, shoes or tools that need extra facilities. Deter- mine in what parts of the house these various items should be stored. After this you can begin to sort out the solutions. In many instances simple rearranging of existing facilities may be all that is needed. Most closets are poor- ly organized. This also is true of many cabinets. Will a few extra shelves help? Make them adjustable 'so they can be arranged from time to time. Maybe drawers or trays instead of shelves will do more to help. How about an extra rod for hanging clothes? Short items or children's clothes can be hung from a rod placed closer to the floor than the ceiling, or placed in a waist-high area. There are dozens of gadgets on the market to make your storage easier. You can find rods that pull out or fold away, special hardware for hats, special racks for almost anything. Your kitchen cabinets can offer more space with some of these gadgets. Special hooks and racks can make them more efficient. You can hang an extra drawer on the under- side of a wall cabinet. The drawer is light weight, comes complete with easy-to-install drawer guides. Find spots out of the main traffic areas in which to place extra storage facilities. Con- sider wall spaces in out-of-the- way places. Shelves or cabinets can be installed in corners. They can be hung high enough so that there is still room for furniture below. Book shelves can be installed on the sides of a doorway and even above it. That window against which you can't put anything anyway can offer space. Place shelves below it. Use a low chest, place cushions on it and you have a window seat. Move furniture around to make better use of wall space. SHELVES USED AS ROOM DIVIDER CABINETS SET BELOW WINDOWS CORNER SWELVES UNIT If there are paintings or photographs on the wall, con- sider whether moving them might make the space available for shelves. Some free-standing storage units serve as furniture. Wall to ceiling (or almost that high) cabinets can be used as room dividers, turning a large room into two smaller "ones and creating a storage wall where there was none before. You can buy or build multi- storage units to go on a single wall. These units are designed to house hi-fi equipment, a television set, records and books. Arrange shelves so that every part of the unit is used for the items that best fit it or it will become a junk collector. Your garden By IsabelleR. Young, F.R.H.S. SEED AND NURSERY CATALOGUES The gardener's year usually starts off with seed catalogues. One may spend many a pleasant evening browsing through these color- ful little books, picking out novelties and older varieties of flowers and vegetables, etc. to challenge your "know- I have already received several catalogues and am quite excited over some of the 1974 introductions. If you like to grow your own plants from seed (and it is so much cheaper) there are several catalogues you might be in- terested in. Some have fine il- lustrations, others give more details on planting, germina- tion and dates. Some are beautifully illustrated entirely in color, and others are in black and white, but give a wealth of information. Don't forget the local outlets. If these people are to stay in business and improve their offerings they must have your support. Often they will not have everything, or some of the special varieties you would like to grow, so do not hesitate to get catalogues from outside sources, and if you find a plant that is es- pecially suitable, tell your local dealer about this and he will probably be willing to stock or get these seeds for you, now or some time in the future. Some of the catalogues that I have Morgan (Ipswich) Ltd., London Road, Ipswich Ip2 OBA, Suffolk, England. This catalogue has an immense variety of seeds, including many rare ones. Samuel Dobie Son of 11 Grosvenor Street, Chester CHIIXd, England is another beautiful, full color catalogue. W. J. Unwin, Ltd. Histon, Cambridge, England is also fully illustrated in color and for those who specialize in sweet peas, they have a wonderful selection. Some of the Canadian catalogues are Stokes Seeds, Ltd. St. Catharines, Ontario have quite a complete selection of seeds, etc. along with valuable information such as planting time, ger- mination time and number of seeds in an ounce or package. Dominion Seed House, Georgetown, Ontario has a good selection, and if you like to grow unusual vegetables, send for their catalogue. T and T Seeds, Ltd. 120- Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba has a very colorful catalogue and you can obtain a small amount of seeds at a moderate cost. They also carry bulbs, perennials, trees and shrubs. McFayden Seed Co. Ltd. Box 1600, Brandon, Manitoba is another attrac- tive catalogue containing flower and vegetable seedsT as well as "fun seed kits and tapes. And don't forget those closer to home Alberta Nurseries at Bowden who specialize in trees and shrubs, but also carry vegetable and flower seeds. Pike and Co. in Edmonton have specialized for years in seeds for our part of the country. They also have bulbs, perennials, roses, etc. Lacombe Nurseries, Ltd. Lacombe, Alberta also carry trees, shrubs, fruit bushes, perennials, etc. most suitable for our area. If you are interested in growing roses you can purchase many beautiful varieties locally, but for those hard-to-find ones, you could order from Carl Pallek Son, Nurseries, Box 137 Virgil, Ontario. They have a large selection of standard varieties, plus miniatures, climbing, moss roses, and many famous old garden roses. Pinehaven Nurseries, Mississauga, Ontario also has a nice selection as do McConnell Nursery Co. Ltd. Port Burwell, Ontario. They also carry flower and vegetable seeds, bulbs and perennials, etc. Geo. W. Park Seed, Co. Box 31, Greenwood, South Carolina, U.S.A. 29646 have hundreds of beautiful, colored illustrations of plants and a very helpful index, germina- tion and culture guide. W, Atless Burpee Co. Box B-2001, Clinton, Iowa, U.S.A. are worthy of a try and have some old and new varieties ex- clusive to their company. For hardy alpines and perennials, send for the booklet from Alpenglow Gardens, 13328 King Geo. Hwy. North Surrey, B.C. For water lilies and other aquatic plants Moore Water Gardens, Port Stanley, Ontario is the place to order. There are many, many other excellent sources. NOTE: There is a service charge of 25 cents if readers wish a personal answer to their gardening problems. The address is Mrs. Isabelle R. Young, 3620 Centre B. Street, N.W., Calgary, Alberta T2K OV8.

Lethbridge The Lethbridge Herald "Serves the South" By DONALD R. BRANN Homeowners faced with costly plumbing repairs can now do more than complain. A revised edition of a very pop- ular plumbing repair book now takes all the fear and mystery out of repairing faul- ty fixtures, drains, cleanout plugs, et al. In 160 pages and hundreds of illustrations this book helps the housewife zero in and match up over 376 different washers, and almost 200 different stems, seats, etc. Every problem, from ad- justing a running toilet, replacing a ballcock, worn washer to installing new fix- tures and controls, Is explain- ed and illustrated in easy to follow directions. Knowing how a plumbing fixture operates, the location and function of each part, how it is repaired or replaced, not only simplifies repair, but also encourages proper usage. The book answers all the ques- tions raised in a survey that indicated plumbing caused more people to lose their cool than any other home repair. Toilet repairs ranked high in every area surveyed, followed closely by faulty faucets, clogged drains, stopped up waste lines. In many cases, those answering the question- naire mentioned paying more to have a fixture repaired than the cost of a new one. To help homeowners pre- vent costly plumbing repairs, the book describes many possible causes and suggests preventive steps. Every homeowner should not only read Plumbing Repairs Simplified, but should also refer to it regularly. Buy replacement parts suggested, keep the tools recommended in a handy place. The next time you have a problem, don't blow your top consult the guide. Do what the book suggests, and you'll see how amateurs can make like "pros" when they follow simplified directions.
