Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THI lETHBRIDOt S1ERAID Friday, June 29, 1973 HOME OF THE WEEK DESIGN R3-819 JJOQ Ft. DESIGN" i The one storey home illus- trated is of the basic, rectangu- lar design and is ideal for a young family. It has the advantage of a ground floor family room ad- joining the kitchen. Because of its open plan, the hornemaker can watch children at play with- out interrupting her v.ork in the kitchen. This also leaies the combina- tion living-dining room free for more formal activities. There arc opportunities for recrea- tion, hobby and utilities rooms in full basement. Three bedrooms are located j at the rear of the house with the family bath convenient to all. There are seven closets on the main floor to accommodate storage requirements.

I NAME ADDRESS -TU 327 Home on the road "Let's sell the house and get away from it all" is a sentiment more and more retired couples are acting on.' j With early retirements and (pensions on the increase, a lot j of people find they now have i the time and wherewithal to the house, the lawn- mower and snowblower to fill j the urge to travel. 1 Many are electing to do it with a motorhome. Motor- homes are self-propelled vehi- cles which offer all the com- forts of home and are an ideal way to travel. i As one retired couple puts it, i "The motorhome allows us to i go where we want, when we i want and to stay as long as I we want." While some people maintain {small apartments to wluch they return, others find that the comforts of a modern mo- torhome make any kind of per- manent residence superflous. "Frankly, we found that the amount of time we spent in the apartment just didn't warrant j the expense." commented a j man touring New England with i his wife. "Besides, we retired j to get away from all the both- i er of home ownership." j Motorhomes make this kind of life practical because they i literally contain all the cpn- veniences of home including hot and cold running water, j oven and four-burner range, full size refrigerator freezer combination, bath and shower facih'ties, air conditioners and even stereophonic sound. Al- most all coaches, particularly those 22 feet and over, have abundant storage and closet space. Indeed the arrangements and sizes of the motorhomes are as diverse as the people who own them. They range in size from 18 feet all the way up to Grey- hound bus lengths of 45 fest. Handy hints to remember Safe use of ladder important By MR. FIX One tool that is truly a fair weather item is the ladder. Comes those warm days of spring and early summer and the homeowner is dragging out the ladder to tackle a job he wouldn't touch during the win- ter. Repairing gutters, touching up peeling paint, nailing down a loose roof shingle jobs that get you up off of the ground. There's a right way and a wrong way to handle any tool and the right way is. never more important than when us- ing a ladder. First of all, learn to carry the ladder properly. Find the centre of gravity, the point at wnich the weight is the same at each end. Pick up the ladder and hang it on your shoulder at that point. Once you have the ladder to the site, the job is to put it up and most people do that task wrong. The trick is to "walk" the ladder into posi- tion. Place the ladder on the ground at the point you wish put it up. Brace the foot of the ladder against the base of the house or a step or curb. Lift the other end. When you have that end up to your own height, start walking forward under the ladder. Advance your hands from one rung to the next. i Once the ladder is erect lean! it against the house. If the base j of the ladder was away from the house you will have to tilt! the top toward the wall. If j the ladder was right up against j the house, pull the foot of iti away from the house. The right distance between the base of the ladder and house is the next point that causes amateurs trouble. The right angle is very important. If the ladder is top close to the house it may tip backward. If the angle is too great the j ladder may break under your j weight. The distance between the house and the base of the lad-' SET BASE AGAINST HOUSE ANP WALK LADDER UP SET BASE OUT FROM HOUSE LENGTH OF LADPER NEVER C1JMB HIGHER THAN TH1RP RUNG FKW TOP der should be one fourth the length of the ladder. A 20-foot ladder should have its base fire feet away, a 12-foot ladder three feet away. Make certain the ladder is resting evenly and firmly. Met- ai ladders are especially prone to slipping, so make certain yours is equipped with rubber or other composition safety feet. This is important on con- crete. Sandbags make a good base on a hard surface. If there's someone around to help, have him hold the lad- der steady. You can tie a rope from the base of the ladder to j the house to be absolutely safe, i On a straight ladder, never) climb higher than the third! rung from the top. On a step- j ladder, no higher than the second from the topv You can't use both hands to work on a ladder.' One hand is for hanging on. If you have to use both hands for a moment, lock yourself on by slipping one leg over the rung and hold onto the rung below with the heel of your shoe. Keep the soles of your shoes clean, free of mud and grease. Fix up an old bucket with a wire hook so that it hangs from the ladder. Put your paint can and brush in that. Haul it up with a rope rather than car- rying it. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

A HEALTHY GARDEN Around this time of the year, Inquiries start to come in re- garding "mildew." The weather has been quite hot and humid lately and if cool nights follow, this will bring on an attack. This disease can do a great deal of damage to plants. There are 3 kinds of mildew powdery and black, with being the most common. It starts as small, circular white to light grey spots on the lower leaf sur- faces. These increase in size and progress to the top sur- face, and eventually ewer the entire leaf surface. Badly in- fected leaves turn yellow and eventually wither and die, and even the stems may be infect- ed. Buds and shoots also may show signs of this disease, as well as grass. Some plants are mere susceptible to attacks of mildew than others. Perennial Phlox, Garden Peas, Currents, Dahlias, Begonias, Zinnias and Roses seem to have this prob- lem. Indoor plants are also I susceptible. Hot, dry weather j will usually control this fungus disease. Indoors, eliminating drafts, increasing the air cir- culation and raising the night temperature is often all that is necessary to check this condi- tion. Preventive measures include proper spacing of plants so that a good circulation of air is as- sured. Avoid low, shaded, damp locations as these invite mil- dew. The drip from the eaves of a building could cause this trouble. Abstain from watering late in the evening as this leaves the foliage wet and is a contributing factor to causing mildew. If possible, water in the morning, thus allowing the plants to dry off before night- fall. Dusts or sprays are quite effective and include fungicides such as Captan, Isotox or Kara- thane. I have heard of people using Bicarbonate of Soda, mix- ing l tbsp. to 1 gallon of water. If necessary a stronger solu- tion may be necessary. When using on roses, do net apply if they are "full blown" as Book simplifies paneling walls By DONALD R. BRANN Once upon a time, many home improvement jobs re- quired real carpentry skill and specialized experience. When manufacturers of hardboarci j and plywood and publishers of directional material joined forces, simplified directions were produced that took all the fear, mystery and up to two- thirds the cost out of modern- izing a room with paneling. If you have long admired wood paneled walls, and hoped one day to be able to afford same, your day has arrived. By -following the step-by-step directions outlined in the book' offered below, you'll be able to panel walls like magic. Fac- tory prefinished plywood pan- els can be applied over crack- ed plaster, plasterboard, paint, concrete blocks or to studs in new construction. They can be fastened in place panel adhc.shc, nailed, or installed with matching metal j moldings surfaced with wood) veneer. The high lustrous fin- ish of prefinished paneling eliminates all on-the-job finish- ing. Realizing few people know how to apply paneling, the book provides all the informa- tion needed to cover every type of installation from mod- ernizing a basement or attic, hall, living or bedroom. Over 80 illustrations take the mys- tery out of each step. Send in cheque or mon- ey order for Book No. 605 How to Apply Paneling to Carpen- try Dept, The Lethbridge Her- ald, P.O.

As with all fungi- cidal sprays or dusts, in hot wea- ther, it is better to use them at half the recommended strength and apply about every four days, as it is much safer.Bad- days, as it is much safer. Bad- ly infected plants should, where possible, be pulled up and de- stroyed. Downy Mildew is another mil- dew that a person may have trouble with. This is charac- terized by pale green or yel- lowish, irregular areas on the top surface of the leaves, with light grey, downy or purplish areas on the undersides of the leaves. The areas affected gra- dually enlarge and turn yellow or brown and eventually die. Stems, flowers and fruits are affected sometimes, as well as seedlings. It is most severe in cool, humid, wet weather. Be sure to provide good soil drain- age and do not overcrowd plants. Incidence of downy mildew is less when soil fer- tility is maintained at good levels. Dust or spray with Zin- eh or a copper-bearing fungi- cide. Black mildew, sometimes called '-sooty is the third type and is much less frequent and seldom causes much damage to garden flow- e-r end vegetables, except sometimes on tropical and sub- tropical plants. It forms un- sightly dark brown or black blotches on plants and can be removed by rubbing with the fingers. Insect control is the most important measure to take. Dust or spray with Nico- tine Malathion or oth- er insecticides. Avoid pruning birches or maples during spring or early summer, as these wounds tend to bleed and form areas for the fungus to grow.
