Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta HOME OF THE WEEK DESIGN R3-1656 1620 Sq. Ft. 45^0- DESIGN R3-1656 | Compact designing gives a I French flair to this modern , home with its attractive shut- I ters and mansard roof. Two brick lamp standards extend beyond side walls to complete the French theme. Exclusive of land it can be built for ap- I proximately $38,000. ' A sense of spaciousness is the | keynote to this unusual home. I The free-standing stairway has . an elevated planter on the liv- I ing room side; this room and ' the dining-family room are i sunken to give higher ceilings, | and the one fireplace serves both these rooms. The hearth in the family room is just the height to be used as a fender bench. A five foot high divider between these two rooms gives plenty of scope for imagination.

NAME ADDRESS Two complete bathrooms each with a vanitory serve the three bedrooms which have The Grandiflora cussed, discussed This comparatively new classification of roses originated with the 1955 All-America award winner, Queen Elizabeth which did not fit comfortably into any of the then existing rose classes. Grandiflora, as a class, is the most cussed and discussed and the least understood of any of the rose classes, even by the professional rose growers. The AARS description of Grandifloras is as follows: "This new class, first introduced by All-America Rose Selections in 1954, has steadily grown in popularity. It combines all of the fine attributes of the hybrid tea and the flori-bunda into a taller-growing plant that produces small clusters of medium to large flowers on long stems, together with some stems bearing individual blooms, all very suitable for cutting. Use where tall, upright bushes are needed." Some amateur growers, and even some professionals, claim there is no need for such classification as- Grandiflora, and that it only confuses an already somewhat confused situation. Others feel that this hew classification fills a very real need and is a valuable addition to general rose classifications. There seems to be more and more roses introduced which predominantly have small clusters of large flowers on long stems on a tall, upright bush, which do not lit in with the ordinary tea rose, either in appearance or height, and certainly are far removed from floribundas. Down through the years, since 1955 when the classification was first used, , some very fine grandiflora type roses have won AARS awards. They are: Queen Elizabeth (1955), Star-fire (1959), Pink Parfait (19610, Jolin S. Armslrong (1962), Camelot (1965), Lucky Lady (1967), Scarlet Knight (1968), Commanche (1969) and Aquarius (1971). It is quite true that some of these in some areas do not behave according to the grandiflora specifications, but, overall, they perform as true mem-bars of this new-classification. Because Grandifloras are erect, tall, vigorous plants, they are ideal selections for landscaping. In rose gardens they are valued for planting in the background, and also are ap-prcprialely used with flowering s'mibs and as tall accent plants throughout the garden where they produce continuous color through the growing season. -TU 327 plenty of closet space and vent ilation. Glass doors lead to the patio from both master bedroom and dining room. There is excellent circulation for day time activities, and the plumbing is well arranged if a septic system is required. Similar, but larger are two other French Provincial style plans, design T45-1672 and T4 1663. Plenty of uses for sawhorses By MR. FIX Handsaws are included on every list of basic tools, but sawhorses seldom are. The saw is rather useless or at best awkward without the sawhorse. The latter really,is just about as important as a workbench, maybe more important. Most people end up trying to saw lumber precariously balanced on the workbench or across a couple of boxes. A sawhorse is not a once-in-a-while item, to be used only when cutting lumber. Sawhorses are useful in many ways - to hold projects that are being assembled, glued or painted. For such jobs the workbench is generally too cluttered and the basement floor or stairs are not the best spots. A couple of sawhorses plus a few planks turn into a spare table, useful for backyard picnics or recreation room entertaining. Tracks for model trains can be fastened to hardboard and the whole setup supported on sawhorses when in use. You can make a Ping-Pong table with just a plywood table top and sawhorses for support. Use a panel 54 by 60 inches and sawhorses 30 inches high. Some sturcv 2 x 6s or 2 x 8s placed on sawhorses turn into a scaffold for painting or papering a ceiling. It's a lot better than shifting a ladder across the room. A plywood panel across some sawhorses makes a tine pasting table if you are wallpapering. Ideally, you should have more than a single pair of saw-horses if you plan to have them for a variety of uses. If you make your own saw-horses, make certain every pair is exactly the same height. A good height for most work is two feet. For tables, heights of 30 inches and 36 inches are better. Most hardware stores and lumber yards carry special sawhorse brackets. With these metal fittings, all you need are a few lengths of 2 x 4s. Some lumber yards carry complete kits of precut lumber that only need assembling. You can make an all-wood sawhorse using four pieces of one-inch lumber for the legs, 25. inches long or longer if you want more height; one 2 x 4 three feet long for the top, two pieces of 1 x 6 lumber 6Yt inches wide for braces. The braces should be shaped so that they are 4% inches wide at the top, the full 8Vi inches at the bottom. Nail the braces across the narrow edge of the legs so that the narrow edge brace is 1-7-16 inches from' the top ends of the legs. Measure four inches from each of the tops and notch out the narrow edges so that the top ends of the legs will fit in place flush with the edges. Cut the top ends of the legs so that they will be flush with the top. Fasten legs, tops and braces with nails or screws. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) HOLDS PROJECTS SUPRJKTS PLYWOOD WITH PLANKS, " BECOMES PICNIC TABLE BECOMES SCAFFOLD. * 4 "WI7H2X6S7 OR 2X8* YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. PRICKING OUT AND | CARE OF SEEDLINGS It is quite some time since cn article has been written on pricking-out your plants, which consists of transplanting the seedlings when they have grown their first pair of true leaves (that is, the second pair). I like to use approximately the same mixture as for seeding, except it should contain a little more loam - 3 parts, to each of sand, and peat moss. Sometimes, instead of using the sand (which is not always easy to obtain) I substitute horticultural vermiculite. Some time before you start pricking out, water your flats or seed containers thoroughly. This helps the compost to cling to the roots better. After filling your baskets, etc. tamp down firmly but not too hard. A dibbler, which consists of a small, broad-pointed stick is used to make the note into which the seedlings are transferred, spacing them approximately 2 inches apart each way. I find that an ordinary lead pencil is very satisfactory to loosen the plants, thrusting it carefully under them and then separating them, leaving as much earth on the roots as. possible. Drop them gently into the hole made previously by the dibbler and apply a little water to help settle the roots.. Firm the soil gently so as not to damage the delicate roots. After filling the baskets, water with a high phosphorous fertilizer such as 10-52-17, using 2 tbsps. to a gallon of water. ] also add a few potassium per manganate crystals to the water to disinfect it, thus helping to prevent "damp-off." Keep plants in a shaded place for few days and then gradually bring to full sun. Many of your seedlings are now pricked off into baskets of from 6 to 12 plants, or fiats of up to 100 plants, depending on habit of growth. Double and Grandiflora petunias should have no more than 6 to a con tainer. Most of the ones you purchase from a nursery contain only 4 of these large type petunias They require plenty of room for. them to spread out, for if crowded, they become quite "leggy." After recovering from the ordeal of transplanting and the plants are growing well, now is the-time to start toughening them up, otherwise, if taken directly from a warm place in the greenhouse or sun porch, etc. and set out in the garden, they will wilt very badly, or even die off. This sudden change is too much of a shock to them. They have to be well "hardened off" before exposing to outdoor conditions. If they are still in the greenhouse, start by giving them more ventilation during the warm part of the day, and keep in the coolest part if possible. If the weather is lovely and warm and not too windy, set your baskets or flats outside in the sun for a few hours each day, or out in a good cold frame where they can be protected at night or during the day should it turn cold. Should the temperature suddenly go down low, adequate covering over the frame and heating cable may have to be provided. Some plants benefit from being "pinched" back, which is a type of pruning and consists of taking out the growing tip of the plant when it is about 3 inches high or has six leaves. This forces the plant to branch out at the base instead of growing straight up. This will delay blooming somewhat but does produce a far superior specimen. Some plants such as schi-zanthus and godetia require to be pinched several times, Eventually, all plants will usually selfrbranch, but I like to follow the procedure mentioned above. Bedding out plants, tend to get a little pot-bound growing in baskets or Hats, etc. to the end of May or beginning of June, when they are set out in the garden, so I would recommend that they receive a weekly application of fertilizer, either 10-52-17 or 20-20-20, using only one-half the amount recommended, that is - 1 tbsp. or less, to one gallon of water. <    Mrs. P - I want to plant some rose bushes in my garden this spring. Where is the best place to put them? Ans. - They require an open, sunny position, receiving at least 6 hours of sunshine a day. If possible, protect 'from strong winds. ? ? ? NOTE: I omitted to mention, that beginning the Ut of January, 1973, there would be a charge of .25 cents for each question sent to me requiring an answer.

But many of our important engineering improvements don't even show. And we count them as most important. They make the 73 Plymouths safer, quieter, smoother-riding and longer lasting than ever before. Extra care in engineering.. .it makes the difference the existing front members. For even more protection, we've added rubber guards front and rear. They'll take quite a punch, without anything getting hurt. Disc Brakes Standard on Most Cars Disc brakes have greater fade resistance than conventional brakes. They perform more smoothly, stopTyour car in a straighter line, and' are more effective at fast Plymouth stand up to the ruining effects of rust and corrosion, we've devised a new plating process that applies powdered particles of cadmium, tin or zinc to protect them. Every 1973 Plymouth has it. (NEW Electronic Engine < Function Tester Chrysler is dedicated to building cars and trucks to the highest quality control standards. To NEW Quieter Cart for 1973 The 73 Plymouths are the quietest cars we have ever made. Inside and out. Passenger compartments have been surrounded with sound insulating materials packed into critical areas of the cars body. Plymouth's Unibody helps too.The one-piece welded body and frame stays tight and quiet for years. The major cause of noise in a car today Is roadshock travelling up through the suspension and Into the body of the car. To cut most of this noise we isolate the front and rear-suspensions with rubber. Chrysler and Fury have had this quiet feature for some time. And we have now adde'd this system to our Satellite line. Ask your Plymouth  dealer to explain all the Chrysler Quiet features. Electronic Ignition-Now Standard Last year Chrysler introduced the Electronic Ignition system on some Plymouth models. Now it's standard on all 1973 Plymouth engines built in North America. The Electronic Ignition system eliminates breaker points and condenser. This means your engine willstay in tunelongerandgo further between tuneups. And it also means that your exhaust emissions willstay cleaner too. NEW . � Emission 'Control Features' We're all working toward cleaner air. That's why all 73 Plymouth engines are equipped with an exhaust gas recirculation system dfr, l1**' Si. and automatic vacuum spark advance control system; for controlling oxides of nitrogen. Also, we've added an electric assist choke to help reduce emissions during starting and warm-up. NEW Higher Impact Bumper* If you take a little blimp, we want you to get off without a scratch. That's why we've added full length reinforcement members front and rear. And strengthened freeway speeds. Front disc brakes are now standard equipment on all Plymouth cars (except six-cylinder Valiants). NEW Higher Speed Starter Motor Quick starting is important, so we've developed a new, higher speed starter motor for our 1973 360, 400 and 440 cu. in. V8's. That, together with our Electronic Ignition, should give you one good start after another, NEW Mechanical Plating Process To help the exposed, critical safety parts on your new Plymouth Barracuda further raise the standard of Quality Control, we have introduced the Electronic Engine Function Tester. We call her "Miss EFT". Miss EFT tells us all about an engine when it's running. She tells us many things we couldn't find with conventional equipment. Engines that pass Miss EFT's test get a Quality Control Tag. She really helps us build better cars. Here are just a few of the many engineering improvements made to the 1973 Plymouth models. Your Plymouth dealer will be happy to explain them all. CHRYSLER CANADA LTO. Doesyourcar measure up ;
