The architect has designed this week's home with a long roofline, broken only once, over the double garage and breeezeway. It has a "heap o'living" on its upper floor with a rear dormer enclosing the bathroom and two closets. Design H34-483 is more flexible than may appear at first glance. For the small family needing only two bedrooms and for the large family needing four, this plan deserves attention. The living-dining L is unusually large with stone hearth and two bookcases complimenting the fireplace. The dining room, has a wide glass door to the terrace. The study or fourth bedroom faces front, with large closet and direct access to another bathroom, which can be entered also from the hall. Note the interesting division of the bathroom with a second vanity which can be shut off from the main bathroom. The kitchen measures approximately 16' x 10' with access to the hall, dining room, rear terrace and basement. A package receptacle has been built into the exterior wall beside the rear door. With breezeway and terrace covered, outdoor living can be enjoyed in a greater variety of weather. Upstairs are two bedrooms with two walk-in closets, each with a window, and there is more than enough storage space throughout. If desired, a dormer window could even be added to convert the centre HOME-0-GRAPH HOME PLANNING SERVICE 40 Jarvla St., Toronto, Ontario M5C 2H1 D I enclose (plus 25 cents handling mailing) for "Home Designs for Canadians" BOOK 1.

Toronto Star Syndicate) Your garden By IsabeNeR. Young, F.R.H.S. BEAUTIFUL AMARANTHUS Amaranthus are very brilliantly colored, tropical looking plants, ideal for beds borders. They grow best in a warm, sunny spot in rather poor soil, in a place that is sheltered from strong winds. Under these conditions they grow quite easily. Sow the seed indoors around the end of February. They take from six to twelve days in a temperature from 65 to 75 degrees to germinate. As soon as the seedlings appear, give all the light possible to produce strong, sturdy plants. When large enough prick out into flats or pots and keep-on growing steadily until time to transplant outdoors, sometime the beginning of June. They must be well "hardened-off" or exposed to cooler conditions in the greenhouse and then in the cold-frame before setting them in beds or borders. Amaranthus are one of the most colorful of accent plants in the garden, and bright sunshine seems to bring out their colors. During the hot weather they require ccpious amounts of water, although they have been known to stand drought. There are many beautiful varieties of this plant and the first one I grew many years ago was Amaranthus caudatus or Love Lies Bleeding which grows around 3 to 4 feet in height. The large leaves are green or red. and it is the drooping, tassel-like flowers in red that cascade down from the main stem, that remind one of a chenille cord. There is a green variety of this which is a more recent introduction and goes under the name of A. caudatos Viridis, which has the long, graceful, drooping chenille-like tassels almost identical to the red variety except for the bright green color. The plants are vigorous and grow 24 inches high. This variety lends itself well to flower arranging. Illumination has bright rosy-red upper leaves topped with gold while the lower leaves are brownish green. This grows 2 to 3 feet high. Molten Fire or "Summer Poinsettia" has large scarlet and green leaves similar to a poinsettia. Early Splendor grows 3% feet and is larger and earlier flowering than Molten Fire. Tricolor or Jo- seph's Coat is most eye- catching, with its leaves splashed with red, yellow and green. This grows 24 inches high, and is considered to be one of the most colorful of the Amaranthus, but this could be a matter of preference. I think they are all lovely and each one deserves a place in the garden. Have you ever taken a good look around the garden during the summer, noting the different colors. You will be surprised to see that most of them are shades of red, orange, yellow and a little white, but very little blue. There are quite a number of in blue shades which give a most welcome change from the others. Some of these include Phacelia campanularia which has intensely gentian blue flowers with white anthers, growing 9 inches tall. These appealing little flowers are especially attractive in groups and are well suited to borders or rock gardens. Also known as California Blue Bells, and grow best in a poor, sandy loam in a location. As these are difficult to transplant, they are best seeded outdoors after May 15th. Baby-Blue-Eyes or Nemophila menzies grows 3 to 6 inches high, producing sky blue flowers with white centres and blooms over a long period. They do best in x full sun but will grow in semi- shade in a well-drained soil. Sow outdoors around the middle of May. Nemesia is another delightful blue flower preferring some shade to grow in. These may be sown in the greenhouse the first or second week of March, planting outside when danger of frost is over. If grown in full sun give ample supplies of water. Blue Gem has Forget- Me-Not type flowers and is most dainty. Other blue flowers that one could grow are Ageratum, Lobelia, Cornflower, Pansies. Larkspur Sweet Pea, Salvia farinacea Blue Bedder (very beautiful for flower' Asters. Petunias, and many others. Mrs. 0. When should I sow my cineraria seed? I would like to start some plants in my greenhouse. Ans. It all depends when you want them to bloom. Sow the seed in September to bloom for Easter and sow in the spring for winter bloom.

EARLY ALPHABET The development of the use ol an alphabet occurred in the Smiatic world between 2.000 and 1.700 BC Makes own reels NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. (CP) Norm MacDonald was dissatisfied with fine British spinning and fly-fishing reels so he went out and made his own, which now are coveted by fellow anglers. Mr. MacDonald gets and up for his fly reels and almost four times as much for his revolving-drum spinning reels, but he doesn't make any money. "I just charge for the mate- rials and some of my he said. "It takes me 20 to 25 hours to make a fly reel and 55 to 60 to make the casting reel. "Let's say I just want to help pay for my hobby." Mr. MacDonald is a die- maker who has become an electrical discharge machinist and is an expert angler. He learned to fish in the competitive waters around Toronto and now enjoys trouting in the Cowichan and upper Skagit rivers in British Columbia. The master fisherman has made about 60 reels, in sev- eral sizes. They are light with many lightening holes drilled in them. His fly reels have no quick-disconnect latch for re- moving the drum, but his copies of a discontinued model of a Hardy Silex spinning reel do. IN GREAT DEMAND His reel cages are not cast in a single piece but seg- mented. The reels are so beautifully assembled, so much stronger than any cast-metal, have such slim clearance between drum and frame, and sounds so beautiful that they are desired by fishermen. He charges as much as or more than the cost of the best British ones for reels that of- fer fewer optional features. "I've had offers from a large U.S. tackle company that caters to the carriage trade. They say they have customers who will buy reels like that at any price." But Mr. MacDonald said he's not interested because he would find it difficult to ask as much for a reel as for a fine shotgun. Besides, he has a long wait- ing list among his friends. Stuffing tomato for 1974 FROM 'TRELLIS' Completely new for 1974 is a 'stuffing tomato' which is quite distinct from all others. It will not only be a conversation piece but a real gourmet's delight as well. Make no mistake about it, the fruits are true tomatoes but they grow just as green or red sweet pepers do. They are actually hollow, except for a few seeds around the core, which may be easily scooped out. You pick them, lift out the compact centralized core and they are ready for stuffing. Fruits are large, measuring three inches in diameter and about the same in length. They have a firm flesh, are a bright red in color, and are strongly and distinctly three- lobed. The bushy plants are large and produce large crops. Sow the seeds indoors in March and move the plants to the garden around the 24th of May after danger of frost. Geothermal energy vast power source Geolherrnal energy, or heat from the earth's interior, is a vast source of pollution-free power which can be converted to electricity with present technology. The World Almanac notes. Geothermal power development was been limited because of the Jack of venture capital due to the availability of cht '.per hydrocarbon fuels. Geothcrmal reserves, mostly in the western states, are almost limitless. The Herald At Home ;
