Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, November 8, 1974 HOME OF THE WEEK KITCHEN NOOK DESIGN R3-2447 Sq. Ft. The brick ranch home il- lustrated this week, has been planned for the homemaker who prefers her kitchen in the front of the house. This feature is becoming increasingly popular because of its easy access to both front and side entrances. The living room faces the garden and has direct access to the terrace, giving privacy and freedom from traffic noise. An added touch is the set of open shelves between the hall and living room. The master bedroom has a three-piece powder room en suite and two of the three bedrooms have cross ven- tilation. There is a handy garden tool shed behind the garage with access from the garden. Construction is brick veneer accented with vertical siding, and the design is suitable for any type of heating.

Keeps you in touch with a bargain By Gene Fawcette REPAIRING RUSTED-OUT AREAS IN A CAR BODY HAS BEEN MADE MUCH EASIER WITH A NEW SELF-ADHESIVE TAPE THAT NOT ONLY SPANS THE HOLES, BUT SAID TOSERVEASA6UARD ASAINST FUTURE RUST... OH PAINT PATCHES fOA SCfiATCffeS THAT AM JUST Vines for indoor decor By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. Recently, I have had inquiries about suitable climbing plants for indoor growing. If you are not a regular subscriber to the Lethbridge Herald, you probably missed the articles on philodendrons and Hoya written over a year ago. I will com- ment on these briefly, along with some others that make attrac- tive indoor decorations. Those people who have large living rooms with picture win- dows that emit a good deal of light are able to grow more tropical and sub tropical plants. If you want to heighten a low ceiling, then train a vine up or down a wall, and if you desire to lower a high ceiling, then grown them horizontially. If you arc displaying a mass of plants in a window, you can help tc bring more unity into the whoie picture by using vines. Have you ever grown the passion flower (Passiflora Spanish missionaries in Brazil were most fascinatet by the shape and arrangement of the petals of a lovely climber they found growing wild. They named it the passion flower in memory of the crucifixion. The ten petals are thought to repre- sent the ten disciples who were witnesses of the crucifixion. Within these, there is a ring of filaments, which represents the crown of thorns. The three stigmas (female organ of the flower) are nails and the five anther, of stamens (part of the flower which pro- duces pollen) surrounding them represent the wounds. The finger shaped foliage is the hands holding the scourges those many whip like tendrils by which the plant grows. This plant is a vigorous climber, and although attractive all during the year, is especially beautiful when in flower. It doei best in a sunny window and also requires a support on which to climb. During the summer, they may be moved outdoors, bring- ing in again in the fall. If repotting is necessary, use a compos consisting of two parts loam, and one part each of peat moss anc sand. When actively growing and flowering, they need plenty o water, sun and some fertilizer. During the winter, very little moisture is required. The colorful flowers of red, white, blue and shades of lavender to deep purple should be cut off when finished and the plant should be pruned back. Some prune to pot level and others thin out weak shoots and unwanted growth. If you have a sunny window, the trailing ivy geraniums do very well. For good success, let them dry out completely before watering again. They are also ideal for planters and dish gar- dens and there are many varieties and colors to choose from. For a dry atmosphere, with ample light, you could try the rosary vine (Ceropegia with beadlike tubers on the stems and heart shaped leaves. This is a plant that hangs rather than climbs and so is suitable for a hanging pot or basket. The Hoya or wax plant is comparatively easy to grow, with its pink, star shaped flowers, waxy in appearance. It is one of the most fragrant house plants, especially in the evening. Mine blooms from about mid February to October. It requires good light, an east window being ideal, and for best results blooms better when potbound. This is a must. Repot in late summer or fall, after flowering has finished, using a compost of one part good loam, two parts leaf mold or peat moss with the addition of a little cow manure and bonemeal. During the growing season, keep well watered and give a dilute, soluble fertilizer about once a week. During the winter, keep somewhat on the dry side in a cooler atmosphere The plant is peculiar in that flowers appear again and again on the same short stem or spur, so do not cut these off. The philodendron is perhaps one of the most popular subjects for homes, offices and apartments because it will grow in very little light and does not require a great deal of care Equal parts of loam, sand and peat moss is a good mixture to use and these plants do best when slightly potbound. With not enough light, the leaves tend to get straggly, so try and strike a happy medium.

Fla (Reuter) Instead of working with crude petroleum the way major oil producers do. John Schroter gets the material for his high- quality lubncants from ser- vice station waste oil pits. The process by which Schro- tcr produces the lubricants from the used oil commonly is known as re-refining but Srhroter does not like the term He insists his business is just as much real refining as that done by major oil producers. "The product we work with is our crude just as the major producers work with crude." he said "Just hke they do, we take out everything that doesn't belong in oil. then make the crude into the specific products we need And Schroter. whose customers include the vchicle fleet of the General Telephone Co of Florida, said his product is better than that made by the major com- panies "I have always worked hard to put out nothing but the best of whatever my product is and I've been able to make that product consistently he said "A lot of the so-called re- refiners don't do any refining They collect any kind of waste nils they can get, filter them a few times and gel out the worst of the contaminants, then sell them for burning. "This can be very lucrative with the pnrr of fuel oil what it is today Srhroter is founder, direc- tor and guiding genius of Peak Oil Co He established the business after he moved from New Jersey in 1953 ;
