Seagram Ontario Advance preparations necessary Get home ready for winter By MR. FIX The countryside buried un- der a blanket of snow is a pret- ty a fine thing to contemplate. Living in the midst of a Christmas card requires some advance preparations or you can suffer some undue problems. Your house should be but- toned up before the first cold snap. Doors and windows need to be storm windows put air condition- ing units removed from win- dows or covered. Outdoor faucets should be turned bff from the supply valve indoors and drained to avoid burst pipes. Snow clearing equip- ment should be handy and ready to use. make sure loose or dead limbs are removed so they don't come crashing down in a storm. Gutters should be clear of leaves and debris so that water doesn't damn up and freeze. Anticipate some of the problems that may occur and prepare for them. A window that breaks in warm weather can be taken care of leisurely. In cold weather you will have to seal up the opening tem- while you get a replacement pane. A sheet of such as a plastic drop can be used on a tem- porary basis. Power failures are more likely in winter than since heavy ice and snow will damage lines and broken limbs are likelier to fall and damage power lines. Every house has a flashlight or two and most of them can't be found when needed. Keep yours handy hanging on a hook near an entrance or set on a shelf close to the front of a cabinet. Have spare batteries and replace the dry cells in your flashlights once a year at least. Large electric lanterns and propane lanterns will light a room. Candles should be used only in holders and should be kept stationary and away from anything flammable. Kerosene lanterns should be used the same way and only REPLACE OLD WEOTWFR REMOVE DEADWOOD KEEP FLASHLIGHT HANDY IN CASE OF I A CAMPING STOVE FAILURE HANDYT0 HAVE with great caution. Food spoilage is a major problem in a power failure. The fact that it is cold outside is a help in this instance. Bottom row key to job How to apply siding The key to an attractive siding job is the application of the bottom row Make sure that the bottom row is applied level to a chalk line. If it the rest of the application job is easy since the bottom row will function as a level base and all subse- quent rows are applied upon it. For do-it-yourself applica- tion of mineral here are the basic steps. using a chalk line and line establish the lower edge of the surface to be sided at the point where it meets the foundation wall. cover the surface with an asphalt saturated felt This type of felt is today's standard covering for home sheathing material and adds waterproofing protection should any wind driven moisture penetrate the joints of the siding. The felt is applied from rolls horizontally with a slight starting from the bot- tom of the house and working up. draw a horizontal chalk line around the entire structure to be sided Nail a wooden lath along the bottom edge of the surface to be sided at the point where it meets the foundation. For the first start at the-corner with a full panel and apply the siding panels in a with the top edge lining up parallel with the horizontal chalk line Nail the bottom of the panel into the wooden lath. After each panel is nailed into 'insert an asphalt backer strip behind the end of the panel. These backer which are inserted behind each ver- tical joint between add extra protection against penetration of moisture. The second row also starts at the but with a half panel of siding. Once this pan- el is in apply full pan- making sure that the nails ride just on top not the previous row of panels. Ontario province of parks There are 16 national parks operated by the federal government in Ontario. They are Adelaide Island and Mallorytown both at Mallorytown Aubrey Beau Rivage Camelot Endy- mion Gordon Island and Mermaid all at Beausoleil Island and Georgian Bay Islands at Honey Cedar Island and Pitcairn Island at Constance Island and Georgina Island at Ivy Grenadier Island at Rockport and Stovln Island at Brockville. There are also 45 provincial parks in Ontario that are within 200 miles of Toronto. Liveable planet Jupiter's atmosphere con- tains and probably the same ingredients that may have produced life on earth about four billion years ago. Many scientists Starting with the third merely repeat the beginning row three with a full panel and then alternating the first panel of each successive row between half and full panels. If a panel does not fit exact- ly at the end of a or around a mineral siding can easily be cut with a saw to the required form. If individual metal corners are apply them upon completion of each mak- ing sure flanges are securely hooked at the bottom and that the top is firmly nailed. Complete the siding applica- tion by nailing the last or top row at the bottom as usual and also at the top. To insure a secure also top- nail those panels which are applied beneath projections such as windows and overhangs. To finish the and to make certain of a weather- tight caulk all points where siding panels end-butt into such projections as door and window interior corners and all openings made in panels to allow for passage of con- electrical fixtures For an attractive use matching caulking. Refrigerated items you will use frequently can be placed between the door and the storm door. Open the refrigerator as little as possi- ble and food will remain cold a long time. Food freezers should be kept tightly closed. Food will keep for 24 hours or more if the freezer is not opened. A camping stove is handy to have if your electric stove is knocked out of service. Since thermostats and blowers work electrically you will be without heat. Conserve heat by closing off rooms and keeping everyone together in one room if possible. Choose the room with a fireplace if you have one. Disconnect motor driven appliances. The power may go back on at less than normal voltage and motors starting with insufficient power may be damaged. Enterprise Check those wipers Eight out of ten cars have unsafe windshield ac- cording to a recent survey by a major oil company. Why should such an impor- tant item as wiper blades be so neglected on such a high percentage of It's like a hole in the roof. People don't want to bother when it's rain- when it stops rain- ing there's no need to worry. Wiper blades go dead in six months or less due to ex- posure to wind and oil road film. When they go dead and start streaking the they should be replaced. Night driving is particularly dangerous when on-coming headlights are magnified in the smear caused by streaking wipers. When replacing the wiper it's a good idea to have the wiper arm pressure tested. If the tension is too the arms can't do an adequate job. While you're at be sure to have your windshield washer solutin and refilled if necessary. You don't want to be out of washer solution just when you need it most.

EASY TO GROW PHILODENDRONS Every once in awhile I receive a request for informa- tion on a specific subject and so this week it is on Philodendrons. For public etc. this is one of the most popular planter subjects because it does not require a great deal of care and will grow in very little light. No home really seems complete without one of these tropical foliage plants. Their which is means of There are over 500 species and a large number of hybrids. These plants survive in a general potting soil made up of equal parts of good sand and peat with a little char- coal to help keep the compost sweet. To provide good add some broken pots or fine gravel on the bottom of the container. To facilitate ease of leave about one- half to three-quarters of an inch of space at the top of the pot when filling it with the soil mixture. These plants grow best if slightly potbound and look most attractive when vining varieties are trained on a pole of sphagnum moss. They do best if kept out of direct sunlight. If grown in a fairly high temperature give them more light or the plant will tend to get straggly and the leaves will be quite small. wash the leaves down with a mild soap solution or even just plain water. This helps to remove any dust and controls insects. If using soapy do not .get this on the earth. There are different kinds of most of them being climbers or trailers. Some are self-heading or of rosette growth. There are a great variety of leaf sizes and shapes and many have attractive colored under- sides. The best way to propagate them is by inserting the pieces of stem in mixture of sand and peat moss of vermiculite or in a jar filled with water. I find this latter method very successful. The best known of the climbers is Philodendron cor- also known as P. ox- which has heart- shaped leaves. It will readily climb any support of wood or bark and Is a very lovely specimen. It will also grow in water under the light of a lamp. This plant win let vou know when it suffers from lack of light and fertilizer the leaves become smaller and farther apart. I have one in the hallway that has plain and variegated leaves both on the same plant and draws numerous comments. Another one I like is P. pertusum or Swiss Cheese Plant known as Monstera It has rounded leaves with irregular perforated holes and cuts in from the leafs edge. These are there for a specific purpose the large leaves have to withstand severe tropical rainstorms and without the holes would be shredded to pieces. Of the non-climbing P. wendlandi is very attrac- and becomes more so as new leaves develop. It has the ability to withstand extremes of temperatures and humidity. The leaves are long and narrow and the plant resembles a bird's nest. P. cannifolium is also a with lance-shaped leaves on short stems. As this variety does not grow too large it makes an ideal houseplant. The ones described above are only a few of the many that are grown. Philodendrons fill the decorative needs in public places and and giving them the right can be pleasant and rewarding. Mr. P. Would it be alright for me to prune my maple tree at this time' Ans. No. It would be much better to wait until June when the tree has fully leafed out. There is not much point in pruning now and if this job is done in the the tree will very sapp- ing much of the strength out of it. a service charge of 25 if readers wish a personal answer to their gardening problems.
