Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta h &6 - THE UTHBRIDQE HERAID - Trees add Friday, July 2, 1971 vdlue to a beauty, home OF THE WEEK By SHEILA and ALLAN SWENSON Cool your leisure outdoor living with trees. They shade your patio, cool the summer breezes, provide more attractive settings for outdoor activities. Equally important from a home owner's viewpoint, trees add many extra dollars to property value. Treas do a lot for your community, too. Recent studies by air pollution control specialists revealed that trees can be effective community air conditioners. They give off moisture to lower hot summer temperatures. They take up and screen out dust, smoke and organic gases from the air. Trees should be one of the first landscape investments you make in a new home. They'll be growing while you continue with other gardening. Select a well - branched tree with sturdy trunk and large foot ball. Pick locations where the tree will have ample room to spread. Some types like maples spread out, others like poplars grow up. Avoid that urge to plant close to the house or outbuilding where a growing tree will be stunted or rub against the building. Dig a hole large enough to take full root bail with six inches to Spare all around. Mix peat moss, compost or other organic matter and top soil with the earth you remove. Put a three- to four-inch layer of mixed soil into the hole. Then lower tho tree into position. Cut away the burlap holding the root ball, but don't remove it. It will decay naturally and roots can grow through the bur* lap. Fill the hole halfway and water well. This eliminates air pockets. Then fill the hole completely, tamp down the soil and add a pail or two of water. Leave a saucer - shaped depression two to three feet from the trunk so rain or sprinkler water will be held to soak in where the new roots are. After a few months add a handful or two of fertilizer around the trunk. Trees add to your outdoor living room. Plant some this year to improve your property value and help beautify our country.

The program, which takes effect July 12f is expected to cost the provincial treasury about $1.5 million annually. Fifty to 90 per cent of veteri-narians* fees will be covered by the plan, depending on the distance travelled to visit the sick animal, and the rest will be paid by owners. Some 80 of Quebec's 100-125 veterinarians have agreed to join the plan, which will also include a central pharmacy administered by the government department responsible for distribution of all chemical and biological products used to treat animals, Mr. Toupin said the pharmacy is expected to reduce drug costs by 40 per cent. oped here by Glass Laboratories, Inc. are available at hardware stores and lumberyards in 48-inch and 96-inch lengths in a wide variety of fin* ishes for decorative and storage shelves,-closets and kitchen cabinets. The new ("G-rip-Tite") edging is made of durable Cycolac plastic with a thin steel core for added rigidity. It snaps over the front of shelving, gripping it "for a lifetime" when pressure-sensitive tabs are used. It comes in abrasion - resistant wood-grain and metallic finishes, combinations of wood and metal, leathery finishes in pastel decorator shades, and dramatic stripes. It may be used on shelving up to 3A of an inch in thickness and is easily cut to length with shears, tin snips, knife, or may be sawed. Homeowners can save money by purchasing inexpensive unfinished shelving, staining it, and snapping on edgings rather than buying expensive finished shelves.

This well-planned, attractive home has an impressive extended roof shielding the front porch and breezeway, a real advantage on stormy days. For j its modest 1304 sq. ft., this house achieves an impression of far greater length, with its roof line extending across the breezeway and garage. Actually the bouse itself is almost square, - the most economical shape to build. Entering the vestibule, one finds a coat closet and powder room nearby. The attractively planned living-dining area can be closed off from the front hall by a folding door. Three huge picture windows, the centre one a sliding door, look out onto the garden. Seldom found in a medium sized home is the third bedroom, or den. Note the streamlined kitchen, designed as a step-saver, and the adjacent breakfast nook with its own extra china cabinet. The plans show an optional second fireplace in the basement recreation room, and a fruit closet under the stairs. Construction is brick veneer with frame accent, the garage in frame This design is suitable for any type of heating. By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. Boy Scouts get grants under plan OTTAWA (CP) - The federal government recognizes the validity and worthiness of the Boy Scouts of Canada to whom it has provided substantial grants, State Secretary Gerard Pelle-tier told the Senate in a letter. The minister said the scouts receive annual grants of up to $15,000 from the citizenship branch as well as substantial grants from the health department. The letter, read by Senator Leopold Langlois (L-Quebec), was in reply to Senator Hart-land Molson (Ind-Quebec) who asked earlier this month whether the organization would get help from the government's Opportunities for Youth program for projects' cross Canada. "Does the government consider that this, the oldest and largest responsible boy's organization is not as worthy of support as some of the hippy and activist groups already supported," Senator Molson asked. Mi*. Pelletier replied that of the $23.4 million allocated for the youth program, $12,125 had been approved for a project of the 18th scout group in Calgary, Alta., and $5,380 for one by the 100 rover group in Windsor, Ont. Senator Molson had said the boy scouts suggested 116 projects in 10 provinces "for the total value of $185,000 and involving 180 boys for the benefit of 12,000 other boys." He complained that the organization did not even get .acknowledgement after submitting its plans to the state secretary's department in March. Mr. Pelletier said, since 13,000 applications had been received under the progzam, "telephone contacts were used rather than written acknowledgements." EASY TIPS FOR YOU I F CATS are a nuisance around your property, scatter pieces of orange peel around your flower beds, etc. They hate the smell of orange. House plants can be kept in good condition when you go on a short holiday (approximately two weeks) by enclosing in a plastic bag and keeping out of direct sut;. A large piece of black plastic is convenient to cover a compost pile if you find it hard to hide any other way. It also keeps the moisture in and helps to hasten decomposition. Cutworms can cause considerable damage in your garden. They are slightly brownish-grey, about 1 inch long and curl up in a ball when disturbed. Normally, they feed just under the surface of the soil, cutting plants off at ground level. Others may eat the foliage at ait* STAY AND PLAY JN CANADA 1*1 Easy chair fares' to summer play places!

If you only have a small number of plants, wrap the stem of transplants with a strip of newspaper, setting them so half of the newspaper is below the soil surface. The paper will gradually decay. You may also use ashes around the plants as cutworms do not like these. To tint dried flowers, use liquid food coloring. Do not subject flowers to direct sunlight as this causes,some fading. Basic tools are a must. If you *e just a beginner in gardening, you will need a spading fork, and a long handled shovel is best for a large. amount of deep digging. An iron rake is essential for levelling off the earth after it has been dug. For setting out plants, a trowel is almost a necessity. There is always a certain amount of cultivating to do, so either a hoe or a pronged cultivator will be needed. If you have any trees or shrubs, pruning shears are handy. For your lawn, you will need a good mower, a lawn rake and clippers for trimming the edge. And don't forget - you will need a hose for watering (either plastic or rubber), along with a nozzle and sprinkler. It is a good idea to label plants in your garden - roses, perennials, etc. There are a number of good label makers on the market, or you can write on the stakes with a waterproof pencil. If you attach labels to plants with wire, make sure it does not cut into the bark or stem. Now is the time when storm windows �are coming off apd screens will be put up. Are they in need of repairs. They should be cleaned, and possibly a paint job will restore them to almost new again. To remove any grease or dirt, etc. wipe off with a cloth dipped in turpentine or paint thinner. A cheap paint costs as much in labor to apply as the best so get a first-class product which will give longer and better service in the end. Windows will be less noticeable if the sceens are the same color as the siding. For copper, brass or aluminum screening, you can use an exterior lacquer or spar varnish. Copper and brass require no primer, but aluminum needs a zinc chromate paint. Some of the holes in the mesh may be 'filled in when painting, but after the paint is dry, turn the screen over and rub with a brush to unplug. Mrs. B. - When I was in Calgary recently, I visited the Conservatory at the Island. There was a creeping vine clinging to the ceiling in the tea room, but I forgot to get the name.

BRANN Despite massive warnings concerning the destructive changes that have already throv/n our natural resources out of whack, relatively few people realize how 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 with a webbing that destroyed the plants. Houses, bushes and branches transformed soma of the nation's richest communities into what appeared to be a movie setting for "Tobacco Road" or the dust bowl of the thirties. The ecologists tell us the imbalance in bird and wild life was one factor that allowed this conaition to develop. A second spring of the same infestation, they warned,*would destroy all tree life in the area. If only one fiftieth of the billions spent on welfare were directed towards increasing our natural resources, we could help more birds, bees and wildlife continue to do the job nature needs done. Bird feeders and houses provide two ways every homeowner can help the birds in their nieghborhood feel welcome. A new book that explains how to build four different bird houses and two different bird feeders is now available. The construction of each is so simplified, every- one 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 pfojects are ideal in teaching the *'slow to learn" how to work with their hands.
