Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta .r. 18 LETHBRIDGJ HERALD Friday, June 26, 1970 Clean Up Cooler Machine By Jilt. MX Today's room air condition- ers are easy to install, easy to use and amazingly efficient. Ef- ficiency, however, drops in di- rect proportion to owner ne- glect. While constant attention is not necessary (most units, for example, have permanently sealed healings so that lubrica- tion is not needed) pe- riodic care will keep your unit running like new. Maintenance is minor and generally consists of little more than cleaning. Remember that although an nil- conditioner is basically a small refrigeration unit that cools and dehumidifics the air I it can do you little good unless j air circulates through it. So in addition to the refrig-; eration unit there is the blow- fan that draws air from the room into the unit and then circulates it into Uie room af- ter it is cooled. Slow down that flow of air which should be continuous and you cut down on the efficiency of the air conditioner. The filter on your air condi- tioner serves the purpose of keeping dust and dirt off the coils' and other parts of the unit. But this is a mixed bless- ing because as the filter fills up with dirt it cuts down on the air that enters the air con- ditioner. Dirt also causes the re- frigeration unit to become over- loaded as the air flow is cut down. Cleaning is an absolute must to keep the air conditioner working properly. Inspect fil- ters at least once a month, more often under very dusty conditions. While air conditioners vary in design the filters on most of them can be removed easily. Some filters slide out the side or top. Others can be lifted off after first removing a plastic or metal grill. Hold the filter up to a bright light. E you can't see through it you know the filter needs cleaning. Some filters can be cleaned; others must be replaced. Re- placement units are available at hardware and department stores. The permanent or wash- able filters should be vacuum- ed and then washed in deter- gent and water, depending on manufacturer's instructions. Clean the grill work and all openings into the air condition- er with a vacuum. With the fil- ter out, clean dirt off all ex- posed parts: coils, grills, inte- rior surfaces. At least a couple times a year get to the fan and grill on the outside of the air conditioner. This second fan gets rid of the heat thrown off by the con- denser. If the unit can be pull- ed from the window, get it into the room and wipe off the grill. Otherwise you will have to get at it by way of a ladder from the outside. If your air conditioner is an older unit without sealed bear- ings, check instructions for lub- rication procedure. Your unit will work better if well sealed in the opening in the window. Keep other win- dows in the r o o ni and im- mediate area closed. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) HOME OF THE WEEK 34- IO- HOMOGEAF COMPANY OF CANADA JARVIS AT KING E., TORONTO 1. ONTARIO.

Young, F.R.H.S. UNUSUAL HOUSE PLANTS Maranta or Prayei Plant, variety M. Leu coneura kerchoveasia, grows 1. inches high and has pale, grey ish-green leaves with chocolate brown, irregular markings which turn dark green later on down each side of the leaves which fold up at night. When growing actively during thi spring and summer it requires a moist soil, humid conditions and diffused light, and in a place where it is out of draughts. Fertilize twice a month with any good house plant fertilizer. In the late fat and winter months keep rather on the dry side, watering only enough to keep from drying out completely. A plant that is quite fas- cinating to most people is the Mimosa pudica or Sensitive Plant as it is usually known. It grows about 2 feet and the deli- cate leaves fold and droop when touched, but quickly re- cover, especially if the plant is in full sun. The blossoms are soft pink fluffy balls. The re. quirements are a moist soil and sun for part of the day. This plant is best treated as an annual as it is not easy to ieep over winter. Even for one season it is worthy of growing.

PHONE 327-1591 pine grows 20 to 48 inches high and is like a miniature Christ- mas tree with branches in symmetrical tiers. It is easy to grow in indirect sunlight in a warm or ojol situation, but does best ait a temperature be- tween 50 and 60 degrees F. in moist soil. This very decorative plant is a slow grower and should be kept potbound. Beloperone guttata or Shrimp Plant grows 3 to i feet. This is an attractive plant with small, pinkish-white flowers, enclosed in paper thin brads of pink and brown, which look somewhat like a shrimp. To keep bushy and in good shjape, pinch out the tops occasionally. Grow in a rich, porous soil in sun. During the winter keep al- most dry. PUea cadierei Aluminum Plant, is quite eye-catching with its silver and green, fleshy quilted foliage and rosy- red flowers, growing around 12 inches high. Docs best in a moist, humus soil in indirect sunlight. Episcias. These plants are specially grown for their at- tractive and exotic varicolored foliage shaped and vivid trumpet- flowers from red to orange and yellow, white, blue and lavender, blooming spring and summer. Being a cousin of the African Violets their care is simdlar. They are mostly trailers so are ideal for hang- ing baskets or ornamental pots on tall stands. They require a moist soil and for the high Tumidity the pots may be set on trays or saucers of gravel or peait moss, which is kept moist. For baskets, an occa sirmal spraying with a verj fine mist spray, not enough terta Department o( Agricul- ure, says should soak he ground on the oulside of the ring until it is completely sat- urated. To do this you will have o leave the sprinkler on for several hours at a time. Repeat he soaking every third or fifth lay, depending upon the weath- :r, for a good part of the sum- mer. You should also perforate he ground oulside the ring so hat the water thoroughly pene- ralcs the soil. Although there ire chemical fungicides for ailing turf diseases, a watering like that outlined above s the most effective treatment, egardlcss of whether or not chemicals are used, says Mr. McCalla. Tile lawn should also 30 well fertilized. Fairy rings are caused by a ungus that grows from four to ten inches beneath the turf. It tarts from a small point and preads out evenly in all direc- ions, forming a very dense net- work of fibres which cuts off the water supply to the grass. By the time rings of dried up grass appear, the fungus has already moved on to attach the healthy grass outside the ring. Tliis is the reason treatment must be concentrated on the grass just outside the ring rath- er than on the'dead grass. Once ths fungus has passed on to this area, the grass inside the ring usually recovers quite rapidly. Hence the banding effect on the lawn. What causes fairy rings to at- tack some lawns and not oth- ers? According to Mr. McCalla, lawns that are watered for short periods at a time never get thoroughly saturated, and and are prime targets for fairy rings. Poor soil also in- creases the chances of the fungus becoming established. It is generally agreed among the experts, says Mr. McCaUa, that turf diseases, including fairy rings, are seldom found on a healthy well kept lawn. Fungi do not like fertile, moist soil, but thrive in poor soil lhal is barely moist below the sur- face. Reminders For Do-ll- Your sellers Ready For Concrete Delivery Using ready mix is a con- vcnient, efficient way to obtain concrete for building all kinds of permanent home improve- ments. There's nothing complicated about placing concrete after the truck arrives at the site, but the Portland Cement As- sociation offers these remind- ers: Try to place the fresh con- crete as near its final position as possible. Avoid dragging or "flowing" it over long dis- tances. In vertically formed work like walls or foundations, place the fresh concrete in uniform layers in the forms. Lay eis should be about 12 in. deep. To prevent separation of fine and coarse particles, use a chute long enough that the free drop of the concrete will not be more than a few feel. Spade the concrete as it goes into the forms. This consoli- dates it and releases trapped air. Spading in corners and around reinforcing steel is es- pecially important in vertically formed work. Use a vibrator if one is available. For patios, driveways and other flat work, cast the entire thickness in a single operation, but be sure to wet the sub-base before the concrete goes down. When it's necessary to stop construction of walls or other vertically formed work, make a watertight joint by (1) clean- ing, roughening and removing all loose particles from the hardened concrete and (2) dampening the concrete and spreading on a cement-water coating before placing the new concrete. On flat work, cut control joints not more than 10 to 15 feet apart to control cracking. The joints should be cut one- fourth the thickness of the slab. Use expansion joinU where the concrete slab bulls founda- tions, walls and other struc- tures. Form the joints wilh pre- molded asphalt-impregnated strips Vi to Vi inch thick.
