NAME ADDRESS Design No. 415 1171 Sq. Ft. This handsome Ranch design has excellent traffic circulation and a very functional layout. There is room in the oversize garage for an easily heated ex- tra washroom or it could be lo- cated in Hie basement. Construc- tion is brick veneer with "V" board accents. Godeliit or satin flower is one of the less usual annuals you might in this year. The salin-textured petah jive this pretty flower the com- mon name of satin flower. Na- tive to California, it grows best in cool, moist soil and a semi- Ihaded place. Seeds of mixed flower colors will produce blooms of rose, carmine, pint, lavender-blue, white and many combinations of these, all lovely to look at. Grow some of these flowers In a border but try also using them as pot plants for strategic places near your house or on your terrace. The blooms are handsome when cut and used with others but do not last long in water. Nevertheless, their effect is so lovely that they are worth re- placing in an arrangement. While seeds may be sown outdoors after frost danger is over, scattering them where the plants are to bloom, better re- suits come from starting seeds indoors in Afarch or April. Cover the seeds with sieved soil, only to a depth of one.six- teenth of an inch. They will sprout in 2 weeks. When plants are 2 inches tall transplant or thin them to 3 inches apart. Increase this to 12 inches when transplanting them to the garden. They'll Bower for several months. Staple Gun Handles Many Jobs t ...iwutnn ITicfon nrtHpfiC tft Hw F) By MR. FIX The upholster or man laying carpet, hammer in hand, mouth illed with taeks is about as up- o-date as a blacksmith.

But a faster, easier and far more efficient means of tacking ias come about with the ad- vent of the staple gun, some- imes called an automatic tack- er.

Basically a mobile home built on top of a pick-up truck, campers are completely outfitted to ensure every comfort while making al- most any area of our big land accessible.
