Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J6 _ THE IETHBRIDGE MERAID - Friday, March 16, 1973 HOME OF THE WEEK DESIGN t4-1658 A strong period feeling characterizes this "Garrison" design, reminiscent of earlier days in Eastern Canada. It could lend charm to any suburban property and could be wonderfully furnished by owners knowledgeable in the designs of those times. This home is finely detailed r Indoors and out, and blends the o best of the past with the best 10 of the present. Foyer is large and little wonder since no solid walls shut it off from the living room on one side and separate dining room on the other. The heart of this home is in a spacious family room adjoining the nook and kitchen - modern counterpart of the old colonial family kitchen. A mammoth fireplace with raised hearth takes up one wall of this room. Second floor has a lavish i" master suite, with a double I closet and private bath. Three other bedrooms, plenty of cupboards and another full bathroom complete this floor. Note  that it is canti-levered both I front and back, with bedrooms gaining in size. Design T4-1678 I also available, is essentially the I same interior design but with . different exterior treatment to J give it move of the Southern Colonial styling. | Design T4-1675 at 1447 sq. ft. | Is a similar but smaller 'Garrison' style home wwith alter- I to give  Care, handling of tools safely PICK SCREWDRIVER, THAT FITS JOB /, KEEP CUTTING TOOLS SHARP HOLD NAIL.BETWEEN THUMB^AND FOREFINGER BLADE GUARD IS FOR YOUR SAFETY USE IT Home-O-Graph Home Planning Service 40 JARVIS ST., TORONTO, ONTARIO M5C 2H1 ( ) I enclose $1.00 each (plus 25 cents for handling and mailing) for two new books "Homo Design for Canadians".

(Copyright 1973 Toronto Sar Syndicate) NAME address -T1J 3Z7 By MR. FIX People seldom get cut on sharp tools. It's the dull tools that are hazardous. And no hammer ever mashed a thumb by itself. It took some inept handling to cause the injury. There's a right way and a wrong way to use every tool. Tools not in good condition are a hazard. Here are suggestions for handling the most common tools in the safest way possible. Screwdrivers - There's no universal size. You need several sizes. Pick a screwdriver that fits the particular job. The blade tip should fit squarely in the screw slot so that it is seated against sides and bottom. A loose fit chews up the slot. A tight fit causes the blade to slip. You will hurt yourself and eventually ruin the screwdriver if you try to use it for a chisel or a crowbar. Never hold work in one hand, screwdriver in the other. Eventually you will slip and the result can be a severe puncture wound. Saws - A sharp saw cuts through the material. A dull one slips off, binds once you start cutting and makes an easy job difficult. Support large pieces of lumber on saw-horses. When using a hacksaw, secure the metal you are cutting in a vise. Power saw blades should be replaced when dull. Hammers - When you start a nail, hold it between thumb and forefinger near its head, never the point. Hit the nail head squarelv and with full force. Hitting the nail at an angle will cause the hammer to slip off the nail. Replace crack ed or damaged hammer handles. Make certain heads are tight on the handles. Keep handle smooth and free of splinters Hammer heads that are nicked or dented should be replaced Cutting tools - Chisels knives, shears, other cutting tools should be kept sharp They work better, are less likely to slip. Sharpening stones, kitchen sharpening gadgets will all help. A profes sional sharpening now and then is good. Keep surfaces lightly coated with oil since rust has a dulling effect. Power tolls - These have their own set of hazards. Electrical tools should be grounded or should be of the fully insulated variety. Avoid working on a wet ground or on wet surfaces. Power saws should never be used without a guard over the blade. Long neckties, loose sleeves are a hazard around this and most other power tools. Keep the work area clean. Leave plenty of room around a power tool so that you can manoeuver. Tools should be disconnected when not in use. If there are children around, find a way to lock the tool or to make the power supply inaccessible. In general, work benches and working areas should be kept clear of junk. Have a place for every tool. Tossing them all together in a drawer or a box will only ruin them. Your workshop should be well lighted. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

It is also known as "Satin Flower" because of Uie satin-textured petals. While it will grow in full sun if supplied with plenty of moisture, it does much better in semi-shade, especially in areas where the summer is hot and dry. You could grow it in a location where it receives the full morning sun and open shade in the afternoon. Seed may be sown outdoors in May, but better results are obtained by starting inside about March 20. Sprinkle just enough of sieved compost (mentioned previously in other articles ) to cover the seeds, which should come up within, two weeks, 6 to 16 days. They will germinate in a temperature of around 50 degrees or even up to 68 degrees. When pricking out, after the plants are lVz to 2 inches tall, be careful not lo damage the roots, as this is quite easily done. Space two inches apart each way, in flats, keeping out of the direct sunlight for a few days. When setting out in the garden place approximately 12 inches apart in a soil that is sandy and not too fertile. Too rich a soil will produce plants with lush foliage and few flowers. They should not Iw crowded for they do branch out into fairly largo specimens. Pinching out the ends of the branches will help to produce nicely shaped plants. These beautiful plants grow from 9 to 24 inches high and come in a variety of colors in ceding - lavender, white, rose salmon - orange, cherry-crim son. I have grown all of these and the one I like best is Vivid, a cherry-crimson. The flowers are a very startling color which seem to "glow" in the sun. Godetia are very showy for borders, beds, specimen plants or rock gardens. You can also grow them as pot plants for strategic places near your house, or on the balcony or patio. They will bloom all summer long if the -spent flowers are pinched off, for if allowed to go to seed, the season of bloom will be drastically shortened. Although they do not last as long as some flowers when cut, they will still give you a great deal of pleasure indoors, because their effect is so lovely. They may be used alone or in combination with other flowers. WORLD ALMANAC FACTS The first national monu* ment to the Unknown Soldier was built to honor the unidentified Americans who rlicd in World War 1, The Unknown Soldier was entombed Nov. 11, 1921, at Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia, in the presence of President Warren, G. Harding, The World Almanac says. The tomb is inscribed: "Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God.,, CopyrlKht c 1972 Newspaper Enterprise Asan. , The following is an article that could be of interest to ranchers and farmers. This is written by A. Douglas Smith, Agronomist of the Lethbridge Research Station. "Fertilizers Not Polluters On Dryland Grass" - Results of soil anal yses made during the past wo years support an observation made earlier that fertilizers are not polluters on dryland grass. The soils analyzed were obtained from under brome-grass and crested wheatgrass awards at the Lethbridge Research Station. Ammonium nitrate fertilizer had been applied annually for four consecutive years at rates ranging from r.ero to 840 pounds per acre. Only where the amount of fertilizer applied had been greater than that required by tlie grass for maximum growth had any of the fertilizer penetrated to the lower levels of the soil. By the end of the four-year period most of the excess fertilizer had accumulated in the top two feet of the soil. Except at the highest rate of application none of the fertilizer had moved through the soil to the three-and four-foot levels. Because the most economical rate at which to apply fertilizers is lower than that needed for maximum growth of grass it is certain that great amounts of plants nutrients will not move off the grasslands of southern Alberta into our lakes and streams. Our frugal ranchers and farmers are not apt to fertilize excessively just to en? rich the waters of Alberta with available plant nutrients Even if a surplus of fertilizer is applied to the grass, the excess nutrients will remain in the upper levels of the soil where they will be available for plant growth the following year. v SATURDAY SUPER SAVERS MERCHANDISE ON SALE TONIGHT 6 TO 9 P.M.
