TT FLOWER ARRANGING will soon be flower show time again, so now is not too soon to think about flower arrangements. The first thing to do is to read the prize list schedule thoroughly and study the rules and regulations and what each class specifically calls for. One could be dis- qualified because of some mi- nor technicality. Arrangements should not be thrown together haphazardly. You must have a visual pic- ture of the design you desire to achieve before you can start to build. Even if you do not arrange the flowers, etc. like a professional, you can still en- joy the beauty of them and it is one method of self-expres- sion. Also, try to be original. The basic principles are de- sign, scale, balance, and har- mony. Design is the shape of the composition. After you have thought of your design, you must relate this to the occa- sion or function for which it is intended. Scale is the relation- ship in size between flowers, foliage, container, site and function. Arrangements are normally 1% times the height or diameter of the container, but anything very dramatic can go beyond this law. Bal- ance should give a sense of ease. To achieve proper bal- ance the arrangement must be equally attractive on all sides. There are two types of bal- ance, symmetrical or formal and asj'mnietrical or informal. Formal balance is achieved by making both sides of the de- sign the same. In the informal arrangement the two sides are completely different and bal- ance 's obtained by means of placement and size of blooms. Dark colors are heavy and should be kept low and near the centre of the arrangement. Large, coarse-textured flowers should also be kept low. Har- mony means that materials used are suitably related, one to the other, such as flowers and containers. Rhythm is flowing move- ment in design. The motion starts at the focal point or cen- tre of interest and the view- er's eye is carried from one point of interest to another. You c? i create rhythm in your design by using curved mate- rial and flowers of different sizes. The three basic iypes of con- tainers are vertical, the square and the horizontal vase or bowl. A green or brown col- or is the best as these blend in very effectively with most flowers. Ornate vases are POSITION DESCRIPTION DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY SERVICES Applications are invited by the City of Lethbridge for the position of Director of Community Services, a newly created Department that will be established on September The successful applicant will have a broad background of training and experience in recreation, open space man- agement, cultural achievement, social services administra- tion and a high ability in the operation of programmes for activities and supervision of maintenance of facilities.

Otherwise, Iho applications will be received in strict confidence. mare difficult to use and often detract from the arrangement After you have selected your container you will need a pin holder or other aid to bold thi flowers in p 1 a c e. These coule be a daisy-type holder, chick en wire, shredded styrofoam oasis, etc. The pin frog or daisy-type holder are the mos popular for low containers These are anchored to the bot torn of the bowl, etc. with flora] clay, which is placed on the bottoi.. of the holder and then pressed onto the bottom of the container and twisted slightly Everything must be complete- ly dry or it will not grip prop erly. Begin your arrangement with a skeleton outline and build toward the centre or foca point. The focal point in an ar rangement is usually less of the way up between the top of the container and the top of the arrangement and a about the centre or slightly off of the width of the arrange ment. Spikes give height, round flowers create a focal poin and clusters are used to fill in empty spaces. Foliage with a definite and interesting fonr should be used. Allow one type of flowers to dominate, am don't spot colors in salt am pepper fashion. If you are us ing candles, remember it takes H4 hours to burn a candle indies. It is impossible, in this short article, to cover the sub ject completely, but some o this information should be o help to you. Mr. W. I would like ti know if there is a phlox tha could be used as a sort o ground cover in a rock garden Ans. Phlox subulata grow 3 to 6 inches high and forms dense mats with flowers white rose, lilac and red and bloom in late spring. It can be plant ed in the spring or summer NOTE: AH questions should be sent with self artdresscd- stamperl, envelope to Mrs. I. R. Yonng, 3fi20 Centre B. St. N.W., Calgary 43.

Solving window trouble By MR. FIX Not all of us live in sealed, otally air conditioned build- ngs. For most of us win- ows are still tilings we open n a hot day, close when it rains or gets cold. Sometimes opening and "losing aren't easy and then we roast, get wet or freeze. Whether or not a window works properly is something ew of us worry about until it too late. That's when the struggle begins. Windows are little different rom other working items arouid the home in that maintenance is easier than re- lair. Generally, when moving larts are involved, lubrication s the key to proper care. An assortment consisting of mraffin, grease stick, powder- id graphite and an oil can with a flexible spout will take care of most anything. It's a pretty good collection for lubrication jenerally. Use the grease stick on the window slides. A little goes a ong way and lasts for some ime. Sliding parts can be >rushed with melted paraffin. The double hung window should be lubricated on the pulley stiles (these are the slots in which the window slides) and on the stop beads (the wood strips that keep the window in To expose the pulleys pull down the top half of the win- dow. Lubricate the pulley shafts with oil or graphite. Casement windows are eas- er so far as window frames are concerned. There is no sliding. But pay attention to :he special opening mechan- isms. These cranks or slides should be kept lubricated with oil and graphite. Painting always creates headaches where windows are concerned. A seal of hardened paint is not fun. Maybe you thought that since you had no trouble immediately and the paint is no longer new there will be no problem. Dampness can cause wooc to swell and paint to get soft The combination is not goot and when the paint hardens the windows are sealed shut. Work gently and slowly and from the outside if possible Try working the paint loose with a putty knife worked un dor the bottom of the sash. If the putty knife doesn't work try a chisel or a knife carefully run around the edges of the sash. If you must work from the inside use a chisel and a mal let, inserting the chisel into the hardend paint and tapping lightly. Work slowly and care- fully. If all else fails, remove the molding that holds the sash in place. Pry off gently so tha you don't crack or break it Sand the edges. Wiht the window open, lu bricate the exposed surfaces. If you have had to sand away the paint, give the surfaces a coat of linseed oil. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

Special hammer for plastic pegs aids campers TORONTO, Ont. Plastic tent pegs have lielped to pop- ularize camping but have cre- ated another source of frustra- tion for the outdoorsman. The plastic pegs break more readily than wood or metal ones both when knocked in with an axe head or conven rjonal hammer and when levered out by using another peg. Now a Canadian tool manufacturer with tenting ex- perience has designed a spe- cial tent-peg hammer. The tenting tool has a cured rubber head securely locked onto a tough hickory handle. The rubber has been cured to minimize bounce and is tough enough to withstand cutting on metal pegs. But the unique fea- ture of this camping tool is a spring steel wire clip secured on the handle-end. The looped clip engages the tent-peg notch, assisting the user lev- erage. The rubber head pro- vides a firm grip when the camper is removing the pegs from firm ground.
