Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THI ilTHMIDOl HIULD Friday, Ottobtr 30, 1570 Hobby More Than Trains9 By JIM CROSSLEY There's a 25 per cent chano that he's a professional man It's 44.2 per cent probabl that he has a college degree (and 4.9 per cent that he ha his 0 It's 57.2 per cent a probability that his age is somewhere be tween 21 and 40. But there's a 23 per cent probability Uiat he's older, 41 to 60 years. Average age 33.2 years. Average income Own homes 57.6 per cent Th above percentages are among the rather surprising findings in a study of Amer- ica's model railroaders. These are the people who have a hob- by of collecting and operating tiny trains. There is estimated to be of them. Tnierest centres on five main scales or sizes. HO proved the most popular 76.7 per cent. On the average, each hobbyist spends 10 hours a week pur- suing his interest. A portion Aucicut Light Ancient light is a phrase in English law describing the un- interrupted use of windows or openings for 20 years and bar- ring the owner of adjoining land from obstructing the light re- ceived through these openings, according to Encyclopaedia Bri- tannica. i ver half of them have their own track layouts on which they work. Model railroading offers wide range of satisfactions, the survey found. For 21.9 per cent, oprating trains gave the biggest kick. Next came car construction, 19 per cent. Next, locomotive construction, 12.9 per cent. Building the layout and scenery came close behind. The magazine Model Rail- roading has just reported on this survey it made. A forward- looking publication, it is very aware of the increasing lei- sure time and the need for avo- cations such as working with miniatures as a mental stabil- zer in our present society. Model railroading is not 'playing trains." It is creative land work similar to develop- ing animated museum dioram- as. Each layout is a railway scene or situation. The survey turned up these additional interesting facts: The age of steam grips the maginations of most modelers years 1900 to 1935. Average individual spend- ng on the hobby was per 'ear an annual market of '41 million. Television-watching is los- ing out to the hobby. In a 1965 urvey, average time reported pent before the set was 14.5 ours per week. It dropped to 1.7 hours in the new survey. Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) HOME OF THE WEEK Living Entry Area -315Sq.Ft.

Young, F.R.H.S, TEHKAKIUMS those people who do no have success with growing plants in an apartment or house because of the dry atmo sphere, and for others who are too busy to give too much tune to indoor pot culture, terrar- iurns are the answer. What is a terrarium? It is a glass container for growing landscaped gardens, on a smal scale indoors, and may be a large fish tank, fish bowl, bran- dy snifter or a combination of wood and glass, either tightly closed or with no top. Some of the closed ones have a tenden- cy for moisture to collect on the glass, thus spoiling the view. Others are made in such a way so the cover may be re- moved for several hours a day. For most, purposes, the open- top kind is quite satisfactory. After you have decided what kind of container you want, the next step is the selection of plant material. Slow growing types are best. Choose ones that complement each other in color, growth habit, leaf texture and form. Remember, most plants to be grown in tsrrariums have to thrive on high humidity, moist soil and low light inten- sity. Some good plants to be grown in a warm room are- African Violets, Mosses, Cro- tons, Aglaonemas modest u m (Chinese dwarf Begonias, Bromeliads, Dracae- na, Dwarf Palms, Peperomias Miniature Gesneriads, In a cool room Wandering Jew, Miniature Ivy, Crotons Dwarf Palms, small ferns, seedlings of Juniper, Pine anc Cedar. These are just a few suggestions. A good compost consists of equal parts of loam, coarse sand and leaf mold or peat moss. Good drainage is essential. Line the bottom of the container with H4 to 2 inches of small peb- bles mixed with charcoal bits. Over this place a thin layer of moss to prevent any soil from working down into the drain- age area. Now add the prepared compost, at least 2" deep and 3" at the lowest part, or deep enough for the plants to root properly. To prevent the sides of the container from becoming dirty, pour the compost through a funnel, shaping slopes and hills as you go along. Tall grow- ng plants such as Croton and small leaved Philodendron or miniature Palms are nice in the aackground, if they are to be viewed from the front, with me- dium types and creeping plants towards the front such as low jrowing Coleus, "Wandering Jew, Miniature Ivy, Maranta and Chi- lese evergreen. Some people lave planted terrariums with all Ferns, which make a very unusual and attractive garden. When everything is ready, make a hole in the soil and us- ing long tweezers, carefully place the plants in position, put- ting the larger ones in first, then landscaping with the small- er ones. A padded stick is ideal to tamo the soil around the roots. If you are planning on having the container placed where it will be viewed from all sides, then the taller speci- mens will be planted in the cen- tre. Be sure the plants do not touch the glass. Experiment with different plants you will probably have numerous ideas of your own. When your planting has been completed, water carefully. You can use a fine mist which will also wash any dirt from the leaves and glass. (African Vio- lets do not like their leaves Check the container from time to time to make sure the plants have sufficient moisture without being soggy. Mrs. A. My Gloxinia has finished blooming. What do I do with it now the flowers have finished? A. After blooming, water until the leaves start yellowing, then withdraw watering and al- low the foliage to dry out. Keep the pot in a cool, dark, dry place until February when new ?rowth should begin. Repot, wa- ter and grow as before. Any questions should be sent with self addressed, stamped envelope to Mrs. T.
