(Copyright 1973. Toronto Star Syndicate) Reduce blister danger As the advent of warm weather turns people's thoughts to camping and summer vaca- tions it also beckons one to challenging chores in back- yard landscaping. The suburban resident needn't be a slave to land- scaping if the right ap- proach and tools are at hand. A leading manufacturer of gar- den shears says there's a basic selection of cutting tools that help make the work go faster and leave more time for vaca- tion. An attractive lawn is one of the first challenges to the home gardener and requires the most frequent attention. The trim around the edges of the lawn is often neglected and, unless the edges are trim- med, no matter how often you mow the grass, the results won't be as effective. So make sure you have a good set of grass shears to make the job easier. A new style that is rapidly gaining in popularity offers Teflon coated blades that won't stick or rust, are friction-free and easy to clean. Bright yellow vinyl han- dles provide a comfortable grip and feature a convenient hang- up hole. While both the man ami wo- man of the house will find new improved garden tools make every pb more enjoyable, there are a few extra benefits to gardening that should be considered. They make up the right "approach" to the job. First, there is the chance to develop a good tan. Second, you automatically trim your figure to bathing suit perfec- tion when you're out getting that garden exercise.

FIX A fire extinguisher in the ome or apartment seems like a ood idea. And don't forget one or the car. In most areas an xtinguisher is required on a But what kind? Go shopping or an extinguisher and you tnd yourself faced with a wide ssortment of equipment. Most are good. None will put ut all types of fires. Some are more versatile than others. Some are overly expensive, thers are cheap but not worth he money at any price. Fire extinguishers are rat- ed according to the kinds of re they can put out. The atings were developed by Un- erwriter Laboratory tests. Be ure to look for the UL label n any equipment you decide i purchase. A Class A fire is one fueled y wool, paper, textiles, simi- ar composition materials; Class B fire, fueled by flam- mable liquids such as oil, grease, gasoline; Class C fire, fire that is electrically an appliance that is plugged in r house wiring carrying cur- ent. Once the power is off it s a Class A fire. A Class D ire deals with combustible metals such as magnesium. Tha extinguishers you are likely to buy will deal with Class B and C fires. Class D ires are rare in the home. Csass A fires are beyond the capacity of a small extinguish- er although an extinguisher can iclp if only a small surface is involved. The extinguisher will be for the types of fires it can handle. The dry chemical type is used for Class B and C fires. The chemical is stored under >ressure or uses the pressure >f gas cartridge. The powder smothers the fire by coating the burning surface. The carbon dioxide (CO 2) ype also is used for B and C 'ires. It sends out a cloudy gas hat smothers the fire by dis- jlacing air. The multi purpose dry chemical extinguisher is good for B and C fires and also for lass A fires. On the latter it creates a film that smothers and prevents reflashing of the fire. That same clinging film puts out grease fires and is ef- fective against Class C fires The crust that it leaves musi be cleaned by washing or scraping. The foam type is used for Class B fires. Since the material in the ex- inguisher is kept under pres- ure, that pressure must be main- ained for the extinguisher to be effective. Extinguishers are equipped with pressure indica- ors, the easiest to read being he dial gauge with a needle pointing to the operating range. Once the extinguisher has been used, even partially, it should be refilled professional- y. Even partial use will cause t to need re-charging. Place the extinguis her where it is accessible, such as a doorway in the area where it might be used. An extinguisher n the kitchen is no good if it s in a corner blocked by the stove. Buy an extinguisher that is big enough to do a job, but not ;o big that the lady of the rouse or older children cannot lift it. Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) 1U BE PREPARED WITH A B-C TYPE DRY CHEMICAL EXTINGUISHER YOUR GARDEN By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. PROPER USE OF WATER In Calgary, and toward the foothills and to the north, there has been a fair amount of moisture lately, but I under- stand it has been quite dry to the east and further south. June is the time when we are sup- posed to get quite a lot of rain, but we had our share before this. However, there will be a time whin we will have to water, and the subject is quite important as a great many people do not know how to propertly water their lawns and gardens. Water is the most important substance as far as plant growth is concerned. It is even more important than soil, for plants can grow without soil, and even do without plant food for some time, but only certain special plants can sur- vive being totally without water for a time. Water is the means by which' nuneral nutrients are dissolved from the soil, moved into the plant through the roots and carried up to the leaves. Plant food manufactured in the leaves is carried back from the leaves to whatever part of the plant requires it. A thor- ough watering develops a strong, deeply-rooted plant sys- tem that can go for long per- iods without moisture. If water is applied to a lawn properly, Add living space with a dormer Earth wobbles as it rotaltes As it rotates, Earth wobbles on its axis. This deviation, known as Chandler's Wobble, reaches its peak every seventh year, and some scientists be- lieve earthquakes are more numerous in those years. The next peak year will be in 1978. FACTS A hurricane gets its pow- er from condensing water vapor over warm water. A frontal storm develops when a cold air mass lides with a warm air mass. The neutercane, neutral be- tween hurricane and frontal storm, gets its energy from both processes, The World Almanac says. This nomenon wasn't discovered until weather satellites gan to track storms. Copyright 197J .Newspaper iintcrprisa By DONALD R. BRANN Not so long ago, when a fam- ily outgrew their home, they just picked up and moved. Nowadays, because of inflated moving costs, short supply of adequate housing units, smart families conquer space by con- verting attics, basements, building dormers or adding rooms. A dormer provides an inex-. pensive way to add needed head room to a low roof. When one or both sides of a roof are "lifted" with a dorm- er, a valuable living space can be added at relatively small cost. A new book now tells all. By knowing what needs to be done, by being able to accur- ately estimate materials re- quired, all the mystery usually associated with a job of this kind is eliminated. Even the unskilled person who spends an hour or two reading easy to follow directions gets a clear picture of every step of con- struction. This permits him talk like a pro when discussing costs with a carpenter or tractor, helps obtain an esti- mate closer to the true value of the job. Book assumes the reader knows nothing about doing this kind of work and explains every step how to lay out and lo- cate a dormer, how to build front wall frame, how to re- move shingles and sheathing, cut rafters to angle required, etc. Send in cheque or mon- ey order for book No. 603 How to Build a Dormer to Car pentry Dept., The Lethbridge Herald, P.O.

Another point to take into consideration is the types _ of oil, as this largely determines he mileage you can get out of an inch of water. It pene- rates much faster in sand than clay. Clay soils require a fine, slow watering for a long per- od, while sandy soils necessi- atte a coarse spray for a short time. To estimate how long it vill take to furnish one inch of water, place several cans within the sprinkler's spray and check the amount of wat- er at the end of one hour. Or, rou can place a one inch mark on the can and check the time .t takes to reach that point. The early morning hours are .generally the best for watering. There is less evaporation and ;he water has a better chance of soaking into the ground be- fore the heat of the day. Also, watering later in the evening has a tendency to cause mildew or other diseases. The most popular method of watering is sprinkler, and if done early in the morning there is usually no damage to plants, but some- times applying moisture by this method will mar the blossoms. Quite frequently, I take the nozzle off and lay the hose close to the plants, first, tying an old socks to the end of the hose, which breaks up the water flow, thus preventing the leaves, etc. from being splash- ed, and also making holes in the ground. The water runs gently around the plants and is most satisfactory. There are a number of plants that should not be allowed to become too dry if they are to develop properly. In particu- lar, tomatoes, cabbage and carrots tend to split if depriv- ed of water and are then wat- ired liberaly. Celery requires p-eat amounts of moisture and f allowed to dry out during the early stages of growth may go to seed. The critical time for watering flowers is when they are in the bud stage and be- ginning to bloom. Try and give them an inch of water at [east once a week. Soaker (loses are ideal for borders. Have you tried turning them upside down and letting the water ooze into the soil? Trees require a thorough soaking about twice as mjuch as you give your lawn. When you water your lawn, the amount the trees receive at this time is not enough. The nozzle should be removed and the hose placed at the base of the tree, giving it a thor- ough seating. Remember, a shower is most refreshing, but is no substitute for a good drink of water. Mr. T. I have noticed some small, white worms in my lawn. What are they and how can I get rid of them? Ans. These are probably root maggots. There is a "Lawn and Garden Insecticide" that you can apply, according to directions, which should remedy this problem. Mrs. W. Could you tell me which is better to grow in Swiss Chard or which lasts the the garden, Spinach and longest? Ans. It all depends on your taste. Personally, I pre- fer Swiss Chard as it is a little sweeter and as far as lasting quality in the garden, Swiss Chard will grow right up un- til some time in October and still be quite edible. Motorists told of gas shortage wTLLOUGHBY, Ohio (AP) The American Automobile As- sociation says travelling- motor- ists will find gasoline in cri- tical short supply in some states. A spokesman for the associ- ation denied a report that it is suggesting to its members that they fly and then rent cars when they reach their destina- tions, if they must travel this summer. The AAA said that it expects gasoline to be in critically short supply in some states. The shortage in the south- eastern states is the most criti- cal. The AAA said there are 300 gasoline stations in the southeast and that 189 are closed and. 656 are threatening to close within a week. The sit- uation will viorsen, it added. The second most critical area includes the states around Ohio. There are stations in that region. The AAA said 165 are closed and 200 are threat- ening to shut down within the week.
