Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, November 17, 197J Some slick, sonic just run uiuay How to fix roll-up shades Uy MR. FIX There are many styles ill window coverings but remain- ing the most popular and used most frequently is Uie common roll-up window shade. Such a shade affords privacy and is economical, easy to leave up for years and just as easy to replace. But window shades do create an occasional problem. They may suddenly snap up and all privacy is gone. Sometimes you can't wind them up at all. The parts of a window shade are repaired easily or replaced. Total replacement is not expen- sive but sometimes a simple repair made at no cost will do just fine. The shade is fastened to a wooden roller with staples, tacks or tape. Inside the roller there is a coil spring with a dowel inside. One end of the roller has a. stationary pin. The other has a flat, rotating pin. Metal caps protect these parts. There are Liny pawls that fit into slots at (he end with the rotating pin. The force of rota- tion causes the pawls to be re- leased and that in turn causes the spring to raise the shade. Whenever you stop the shade's movement "you cause the pawls to drop into place, locking the roller in that position. When the shade does not roll up, increase Ihe spring tension by pulling the shade down a I few times. Remove the roller from the brackets ana roll the shade tightly. Put it back and try again. The pawls drop into place by gravity and sometimes they stick. Check to see if this has happened. If you lubricate, use graphite, not oil, since oil picks up dirt and gums. When a shade suddenly snaps up, then the spring is too tight. Roll the shade to ;he top, take the roller off the brackets, un- roll about halfway down and replace. Wobbly and falling shades may be due to loose brackets. Make certain they are fastened with screws rather than nails. If you are moving a shade to a slightly larger window you can make it work by making the brackets stick out a bit far- ther by shimming them with bits of cardboard. Or extend the stationary pin by pulling it out a little. If you move a shade to a nar- rower window (a likelier work on the fixed-pin end of the roller. Remove the fabric and cut the end of the roller where the fixed pin is (it pulls out Then put the pin back and replace the end cap. Trim the shade by stretching it on a flat surface, measuring, marking and cutting against a straight edge. Refasten to the roller with tacks, staples or tape.

Toronto Star Syndicate) YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. ROCK GARDENS (Part 2) r AST week I stressed I h e importance of good drain- age and an open, sunny spot for your rock garden. Also, the proper rocks lo use, not round, river ones, nor brick or con- cete as this gives the appear- ance of a recent demolition. If you intend to incorporate any paths or pools, these features should be marked beforehand. After you have started the tual work on your garden, step back occasionally and scruti- nize carefully what you have done. Never place the rocks haphazardly, but study each one carefully before placing in position. There should be a var- iance in the size of the stones and they are not all placed the same distance apart. It is really HOME OF THE WEEK loft DESIGN H3-I630 p I Sq. ft. plan DESIGN 113-iran For some one considering building next season and want- ing something sparkling with individuality the Swiss Alpine style cottage illustrated may be the answer. From the lotty cathedral ceil- ing in the living dining area to the distinctive wooden beams, this country hideaway has a character that is different. The living-dining combination spans the entire front of the cot- tage for a (ii.slance of more than 26 feet. Double stairs lead to the two balcony Ijedrooms, which overlook the living-dining-room. Both have draw drapes to pro- vide privacy when needed. A third Imlroom is located on the ground floor. All plumbing is conccnl rated in one area, an if a septic syslcm is lUMl.

Plans include on alterna- tive lull basement. not possible to tell a person ex- actly how the rocks should be placed each person must use his own judgment and imagi- nation. Only trial and error can establish the final placing of the stones. Firri well around each one after it has been placed in position. As to loca- tion, try not to select one where the plants would be subjected 10 a great deal of wind, where they could dry out quickly. After you have completed your rock garden, it is advis- able to let the rocks and earth settle before planting. Jf you can wait for several weeks, it would be to your advantage to give weeds R chance to germi- nate so they can be destroyed. Rock plants generally grow best in a cool moist root run, so that is the reason for using a base of gravel and a good por- ous soil mixture. If given these conditions, most plants will thrive, even when exposed di- rectly to the hot sun. Not all plants require full exposure to the sun and some can stand a northern exposure. Large trees and shrubs are generally not suitable for a good rockery. Dwarf specimens such as Daphnes, dwarf Euony- mus and Arctic Willow (if kept within bounds) may be used sparingly. Some of the dwarf and low growing evergreens are nice all through Hie year, j These and other similar shrubs could fit in quite well into the rock garden picture, providing the necessary shade for cer- tain plants. There arc a great many plants that one could use, but it is better lo underplant rather than overplant as some do grow quite rapidly. I would suggest pulling your real "treasures" in a special spot away from rampant spreaders. After planting, it might be an idea to spread a two inch layer of stone chips or bark in and around the plants. This helps to keep the crown of the plants dry, keeps Ihe earth cooler in hot weather, prevents rolling of Ihe leaves and splashing of the plant with mud and water and helps to conserve moisture.
