Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBR1DGE HERALD Friday, June 1, 1973 HOME OF THE WEEK What to look for when buying Paint brushes: quality counts DESIGN 53-564 The iri-level house illustrat- ed combines a traditional ap- pearance outside with a for- ward looking interior. It fea- tures a spacious floor plan pro- viding comfortable, uncrowded living of 1.5CO square fed. Open design of the dining- fcitchen area provides a coun- try kitchen effect, which is em- phasized by the natural fire- place. It has a raised hearth extending through to the 17 by 15-foot living room. On the upper level are three large bedrooms and two full bathrooms, one private to the master bedroom. Cross ventila- tion is provided in two of the bedrooms, which have windows on two sides. A powder room, laundry, util- ity room and a huge activities area are located on the lower level. Secluded and protected from the wind, the rear patio can be reached by sliding doors from the dining room. Larger than standard windows bring addi- tional natural light to much of the house. It is set off with a protected front porch. (Copyright 1973. Toronto Star Syndicate) WORLD ALMMC 68-ar DESIGN S3-564 1506 Sq. Ft-. Mom and Upper Floors By MR. FIX A paint brush, like any other tool, will give better service will last longer if a quality item is picked in the first place. Since you will get, more as well as better, use out of a quality brush, it will be worth the extra money. Generally speaking, g o o d brushes have longer and fuller bristles than the cheap ones. Hold the brush up and check to see if it has a wooden block I in the middle. This is a way of making a brush look fuller I than it is. The bristles are I placed around the block. A high percentage of the bristles will be tapered in a good brush. Bristle length will vary so that, as it is used, the brush will spread the paint uniformly. Good bristles have split ends. Hold the bristles up and ex- amine the bristles in small bunches, holding them to the light. Split ends turn the tips c? the bristles to a fine hair and allow the bristles to hold more paint. A factor only you can de- termine is the feel of the brush. I Heft it. See how it balances in your hand, how the handle fits your hand. Only you can judge how comfortable you will be working with it. Get the widest brush you can use for the job at hand. A wide strokes, brush fewer means fewer brush marks and faster work. For siding and other outdoor use, a four- inch brush is preferred. Ths brushes that are two or two and one-half inches wide are used for trim. Doors and cab- inets, except for trim, can be painted with three-inch brush- es. Bend the bristles against your hand. They should spring back quickly when you release them. Look for loose bristles. Even good brushes will have a few, but very few. Brushes that shed easily are not worth buy- ing. There used to be quite an argument on the subject of pure vs. synthetic bristles. The pure (hog bristle) was prefer- red and commanded a higher price. Synthetic was locked down on. But the synthetic proved su- period for water-thinned paints Home-O-Graph Home Planning Service 40 JARVIS ST., TORONTO, ONTARIO M5C 2H1 I enclose SI.00 each (plus 25 cents for handling end mailing) for two new books "Home Design for Cana- Book 1 presents designs for Homes up to 1600 sq. ft. for 1 storey and split level, 1850 sq. ft. for one end one half and 2 storey.

Young, F.R.H.S. PLANT PROTECTION IN THE GARDEN or late in the afternoon so they of them -where It will be the i will not have to face the hot I sun for several hours. If you It is that time again when j only have a few plants you people are setting out plants in the garden, either flowers or vegetables, and even at this time of the year, there could be a risk of frost, even to the end of the first week in June, so some sort of protection is plants, when in the garden, required. Bedding-out first set out should be given protection from the sun and wind. Mist- ing newly planted flowers, etc. with a fine spray of water will j benefit them greatly. Very of- ten all that is necessary is to can use cardboard or small pieces of plywood. Most plants require this protection only temporarily just a few days, until they get established in their new environment. Per- sonally, I get excellent results with the "misting" method, even on the hottest day. Many of the taller plants re- quire some assistance to help them withstand the winds, and staking and tying are neces- sary to prevent breakage. The sticks should be somewhat low- er than the ultimate height of put them out on a cloudy day, i the plant and be placed back Easy on your pocket... Easy on your lawn.

This reduces overlap, gives coverage, cuts wind drift. And you need tcwtr sprinkler heads... one of ths reasons the price is so low. "Hi-Pop" retracts. Your law.i mower or lawn roller Mill never realize It's there. 1 HI-POP" SPRINKLERS least conspicuous. Bamboo sticks -or green painted stakes are ideal and if green twine is used it will be even less no- ticeable. Always make sure that you tie loosely. Delphin- iums, Glads, Dahlias, tall Snaps, etc. are some of the j plants that must be staked. Begonias, especially the tu- j berous varieties, cannot stand much direct sunlight as this j bums the leaves, but they do j like lots of filtered light. They will do much better if planted under a slatted canopy or in the open shade of trees. They j will even do fairly well on the j north side of a house if given j protection from the wind and if j there is early morning and late afternoon sun. These are such a beautiful, showy flower, they really should be in gardens everywhere. There are a number of vege- tables that will grow much bet- j ter if given protection of some i sort. Among these are Celery. j Corn, Tomatoes, Eggplant, Pep- j pers, Squash and others. You may use several things, among I which are the sturdy, card- board boxes, which may be put on the plants, expecially at night. Even though there is no frost forecast, covering the ground with a sheet of trans- parent plastic and planting through holes in the material will trap the heat of the sun during the day and prevent the rapid escape of that heat dur- ing the night, making the plants grow much faster. Better still, cover the plants over with a sheet of the same kind of plas- tic, using wire hoops along the row or over single specimens to hold the material in place. This will act like a min- j iature greenhouse and keep j both the soil and the air about i the plant wanner, and also raises the humidity under the j plastic. Corn raised under these conditions will grow twice as fast as unprotected j corn. Care must be taken to i give some ventilation during' the day, especially if the wea- ther is hot, as the temperature can reach 120 degrees or so. Be sure to cover the plants again in the evening, some time before the sun goes off them to conserve the maxi- mum of heat. Hotkaps or things of similar nature may also be used when first setting out your plants, but these are only a cer- tain height and can only be used so long. I prefer the "hoop and plastic" method and have used it for several years, especially for tomatoes and corn. GOOD BRISTLES HAVE SPLIT ENDS CHOOSE THE BEST BRUSH FORTHEJOB CHECK. BALANCE OF BRUSH CHECK, SPRING BACK" OF BRISTLES didn't soak and swell. Synthetics, nylon notably, didn't hold up in shellac and a number of lacquers. The sol- vents destroyed them. Most of this has changed. You can buy newer synthetics that are made specifically for solvent-thinned materials, for oil paints and for varnishes. The newer synthetics won't go limp. They no longer are as cheap as they once were and hog bris- tle isn't as expensive by com- parison and in some cases not as good. Tell your paint dealer the kind of finish you are going to apply. Read labels carefully. Once you have the recommend- ed brush, judge it as outlined above. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Motor home market open with push aimed at camper The big trend this year in recreational vehicles aimed at the camper is to the motor home. That's the self propel- led house on wheels, in which the living facilities are built permanently on a big motor chassis. Manufacturers believe the market for tent campers and travel trailers is now saturat- ed, but the market for the motor home is wide open. They say every owner of a tent camp- er or a travel trailer is a po- tential buyer of a motor home. The first all motor home show was held earlier this year at the Toronto International Centre of Commerce at Malton and it was a huge success. Under normal circumstances driving a 23-foot motor home is no more of a chore than driv- 327-2111 IS THE NUMBER OF THE STUDENT MANPOWER CENTRE WHERE STUDENTS SHOULD REGISTER FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOYERS CAN HIRE STUDENTS.
