With the increasing popular- ity of skiing and snowmobiling, there has been a corresponding increase in the number of fam- flies building or buying their own year-round retreat. The winter chalet in the ski coun- try has taken its place in the scheme of things in much the same as the summer cot- tage in tie lake country. Both functions can be combined, de- pending upon what the area has to offer. The four-bedroom cha- let illustrated above, can be erected in time for the skiing season. Its social centre the living-dining area measures 29 feet by 12 feet and features a centrally located fireplace with brick hearth. Four front windows provide ample light and a panoramic view.

GLOXINIAS especially the double varieties, are one of the most spectacular house plants with their beautiful, vel- vety-looking flowers and at- tractive foliage. Botanically, it belongs to the same family as the lovely African violet, which is, of course, the number one gesneriad. It was originally named in error and is actually a "Sinningia." They are propagated by leaf cuttings, tubers and seed. Al- though they are not planted un- til February, it might be an idea to give it some thought now, looking through catalogues and deciding what colors, etc. you want. The seeds are almost dustlike, so great care must be taken when sowing them. Dou- ble gloxinia seed come 100 per cent true to color, and 50 to 75 per cent of the plants will be double with 25 per cent or so single. There are many mixtures to sow the seeds in, just as long as they are well-drained, porous and moisture-retentive. Equal pails of peat moss, sand and loam will give quite good re- sults. After dampening the com- post just sprinkle the seed on top and do not cover with any mixture. Place a piece of glass on top of flat, but no newspaper as the seeds need light to germ- inate best, which takes any- where from 10 to 30 days. The fresher the seed, the quicker the germination. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings to 3 inch pots and later to 5 inch pots and then !fl 8 inch pots if necessary, de- pending on the size of the tuber. Be careful not to separate the tiny tubers from the lop grow- th. Your polling soil may con- sist of 2 parts loam, 2 parts sand, 2 parts peat moss and part dehydrated manure. After putting gravel or broken pots in the bottom of container, fill pot to within of an inch lie- low the rim of the pol lo allow for easier watering. The crown or top of the tuber should be just showing above soil level. Water thoroughly and from now on grow as for tubers. When planted from seed they will bloom in R to 8 months. Gloxinia tubers are usually obtainable in the spring. Mako sure, if purchasing locally, to select ones that are firm and plump. Plant in same mixture as for final potting of seedlings, with the concave (indented) side up. Water well, keeping any moisture out of the hollow. Keep in a location where the temperature does not go below 60 degrees F. Light is not im- portant at this time. As soon as growth appears bring to a good light (not sunlight) in an East or West window at a cool temperature of 60 to 65 degrees Plumbing repairs Homeowners faced with cost- ly plumbing repairs can now do something more than complain.

Keep the soil moist at all times, but not soggy and do not get water on the leaves. When flower buds begin to form, fer- tilize twice a week and discon- tinue as soon as flowers open. Blooming period is usually from May to August. When more than one sprout appears break these extra ones off and use them to start new plants. Leaf cuttings are also taken to start new plants from a desired variety. Cut them from the plant when it is in bloom with one-half of the stem attached to the leaf. It can be rooted in water quite success- fully, the same as African vio- lets. Small tubers will form with many rootlets. These can be potted up in the same com- post as mentioned previously Eventually, the leaf will die anc then a sprout from the tuber will grow. It will take about a year to produce a good flower- ing plant. When flowering has ceased, keep watering until the foliage show signs of yellowing, then cease watering and when foli- age has died out, store the pots in a cool, dark basemenl around 50 degrees F. but nol below 40 degrees F. Check at intervals and if necessary give a light sprinkle of water. New growth usually starts in Febru- ary. Repot and follow culture as before. Sometimes if the .blooming period is over too soon to begit the resting period, you can cut back the main stalk to slightly above the leaf nodes nearest the soil line. Keep on watering and new growth and blooms may start again in a few weeks or the tubers may decide to rest. If new growth starts, grow as before.

Plant some of these bulbs now for early spring beauty. Pipe out dryer steam By MR. FIX A vent for a clothes dryer is not normally included in the price of the dryer. You may find on inquiry that the cost of a clothes dryer vent is rather high. Most of that cost is labor for you will find that most hard- ware, department and discount stores carry the materials you need at relatively small cost. The job is not difficult and is one well worth doing your- self in terms of money saved. Do not attempt to use a dry- er without venting it to the out- side. Every bit of water in those wet clothes is pour- ing into your house in the form of steam if you do. Turning your house into a steam bath is the least of the drawbacks. Eventually, the moisture will take its toll in the form of peeled paint, mil- dew, rust and rot. Venting a dryer is a matter of connecting a duct from the opening on the back of the dry- er to an opening in the wall of a chimney. The duct can be rigid (old-fashioned) or flex- ible. The flexible is more ex- pensive but easier to use. You will not have to plan for elbows and a series of connections be- tween sections of pipe. Check the opening on the dry- er first. It will handle either a three- or four-inch pipe. When you measure what you need, allow for the shortest route possible for maximum efficiency. Also eliminate as many bends and turns as pos- the same reason. If you cut a hole in the wall there is a special hood you can buy which will cover this out- side opening. If you choose to go through a basement win- dow, remove the pane of glass and replace it with a piece of exterior grade plywood or al- uminum. Dryer vent kits, when intended for window use, will contain a special aluminum plate with a precut hole and a hood. When going through a wall remember that studs are gen- erally placed on 16 inch cen- tres and plan accordingly. At most you need a four-inch hole so you can avoid the studs with a little care. When going through a basement wall, car- ry the duct high enough to clear the foundation and go through the siding above. Calk around the duct where it goes through the wall on the outside. The hood will be large enough to cover the rough edges so far as appearance goes but the calking is needed to keep out air nnd moisture. If you are using a plate in a window, putty it in place as you would glass. The opening on the back of the dryer will have a metal lip. Rigid pipe fits snugly over this but mnkc the connection secure with a few sheet metal screws. Flexible duct is held in place with a clamp. Pipe thnt angles oft from the dryer instead of Roing slrainht up will reed some extra sup- port. Use a 'OOP of wire or rope fastened to celling joist. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
