Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IITHBRIDOE HERALD Saturday, November 21, 1970 Make check of materials and tools tor's coming so get ready now WINTER emergencies are sudden a n il uncomfort- able. There's no way to pick your titne lor making repairs and you have to work under less than ideal conditions. Before winter really gets into full swing, check your supply of materials and tools. There may not be tune for complete repairs but you certainly can be ready for temporary, emer- gency repairs. Try to anticipate what prob- lems are likely to coma up around your own home. Figure what steps you should take. Power failures are bad any time of the year but es- pecially in the winter. Have flashlights where yo-i can get to them easily. Have a supply of extra dry cells and bulbs around. Have a supply of candles and matches available. Use (glass jars bowls to hold wide-mouth the candles. Tills will keep them from blow- ing out as well as eliminating a fire hazard. If you own a gasoline or kerosene lantern, havo It ready for uso but keep it stored away from the living quarters until needed. If you cook with electricity, a camp stove is handy to have.

CARING FOB THE BIH0S i be taken, however, with fruits UHOM now on it will be- come increasingly diffi- cult for birds to find food, and so some provision should be made for them. We have far too few birds ill our gardens to take care of the insects, etc. and anything that can be done to help our feathered friends survive is worth the effort. About the only birds that we have with us during the winter is the English Sparrow and at certain times the cedar wax- wings. Some people think they are a nuisance, and perhaps they are to a degree when they eat the vines of peas in the spring, along with lettuce and corn sprouts. But they do rid of enormous amounts of in- sects dflring trie nesting sea- ssn, not to mention the weed seeds that are consumed the rest of the year. During tha winter, most birds seem to need, and enjoy, fatty foods. Fresh, sweet suet is possibly the best source of this food. For seed-eating that can freeze, for if they con- tain too much water they may freeze so hard the birds can- not manage them. Wild bird seed mixtures are available at pet seed stores and are very good. One could combine the seeds or nuts, or both, with melted suet and some honey. These may be eaten as cakes or put into containers. This is a real delicacy. A sheltered place where the birds may eat, rest and even sleep is important. A shelf fac- ing south and protected from the north, and east winds would make an ideal station. birds, any or the smaller grains are suitable, together with cracked nuts of all sorts, cracked corn, sunflower seeds, cereals and bread. For fruit- eating birds, such as the wax- wings, they thoroughly relish the berries from the Mountain Ash, along with cut apples or oranges, currants, raisins, or other dried fruit, which has been partly soaked. Care must A roof over the top to keep off saow is an advantage, but do not have it too dose to the floor of the shelf or some birds may be timid about com- ing to feed. On the patio in our backyard there is a shelf for bagom'as and other plants, which is partially enclosed with fibre glass. Large plant pots, filled with earth nearly to the top are left on the shelf all winter for the birds. In these they love to take a dust bath in the warm, sheltered loca- tion, when water is net al- ways available. On saucers, a seed mixture is put out for their use, which they readily appreciate, if the amount of chirping is any Indication.

Young, 3620 C en t r e B St. N.W., Cal- gary 43, A good complete is one containing Some ideas on how to save space Storage space is a must for the remodeled basement, be it workshop or family room. One handy answer could be brightly painted pegboards, which tools, hobby equip- ment or whatever. Shelf systems fit a wide va- riety of needs, and some of the new ones use tension poles to avoid the need of any wall, ceiling or floor installation. For still more storage space, a walk-in cedar closet might be built under the walls or under the stairs of the newly- remodelled basement. If you don't have one, canned heat is inexpensive and will serve for a time. Concentrate on keeping ev- eryone safe and comfortable. Leave the repairs to the utility company and stay clear of fallen wires. If a window breaks, a sheet of plastic will servo until you can niaku repairs. The plastic drop cloth you use for painting can double, or have an extra one. Have tacks or staples on hand to fasten it in place. Sometimes a storm door will get caught in the wind and bang back and forth until the hinges are sprung and you find yourself with a door you can- not rlose. Loosen the screws in the hinges until you can get the door closed, then tighten them again. Plan to use another door for a time until you can re- place the hinges. Remember to turn off the water supply to the outside fau- cets and to drain them. Should a pipe freeze, turn off the wa- ter supply, open the faucet and apply heat slowly until starts. Use electric heating cable, a hair dryer or a heat lamp. In case a pipe splits, you should have a few pipe clamps on hand and some pieces of rub- ber hose. These will hold things until repairs can be made. Install heating cable in gut- ters and around downspouts now. Heating cable will pre- vent ice jams in the gutters, which can tear them loose or cause water to back up under the roof and into the walls. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) HOME THE WEEK NO-403 1573 SQ.

Kitchens should borrow ideas from both schools of decorat- ing to arrive at their own in- dividual look. For instance, in a glass and concrete contemporary apart- ment building, many designers prefer to introduce cspper utensils, touches of gingham blue and white tiles. In a Danish modem kitchen with cook top island counter and double ovens, homey touches such as hanging cook- ware, utensils, fruits, the "farm- iouse look" with dark wood tones, hanging and canisters, provide a "gourmet" feeling to relieve the starkness of stain- less steel and functional appli- nces. One o! the easiest ways to provide atmosphere for your kitchen is with the hew, wash- able wallcoverings. Name the mood, and the new wallcoverings are ready to fill any bill. Choose from bright pat- ients of gourmet recipes, fruits, vegetables and herbs. Preparations are necessary before you begin to paint O J.
