Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 48 tHI lETHBRIDGS HERAID Friday, July 17, 1970 HOME OF THE WEEK 27-S There is very little waste space in this compact house. Yet traffic flow is exceptional- ly good. The extra large kit- chen has ample table space, is handy to all parts of the house, also to the basement and extra lavatory. Where services are available, this latter could be located in the basement and the space used for storage or other purposes.

A newer and quicker method is the use of silica gel (obtained at hobby Or, you can also use equal parts of borax and cornmeal with three tbsps. of salt added to each quart of mixture. For round flowers, the stem length should be about 6 to 8 inches and for spike types about 12 inches, or they may be cut to about 1 inch. Choose a con- tainer of plastic, wood or metal, large enough to hold the flowers without crowding. Line first with wax paper and pour about Vz inch of the agent onto the bottom of the receptacle. Place flowers in a single lay- er, small flowers face up and large ones face down, using only enough of the drying agent to completely cover the flower head. Too much could break the flower.
