Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Storage problems simple to solve By DONALD U. BRANN Ask tile average homeowner to name their number one gripe and they invariably men- tion lack of storage space. The one place where most houses can stand improvement is in the amount of space allocated for storage. Like most impor- tant problems, when a need arises, somebody does some- thing about it, and now a new book entitled, "How to Build Storage Units" explains the many different ways space can be converted to provide need- ed storage. All varieties of storage units, from building wall-to-wall slid- ing door units, closets with floor to ceiling doors, a chest on wheels for under bed stor- age to a can storage shelf that can be hung on the inside of a kitchen door, is explained, il- lustrated and construction sim- plified. Construction of a sewing cen- tre, wall wardrobe, tool chest, under-stairs closet to building a cedar room in a basement or attic is explained in detail. You can start with one unit in any space from four to twenty four feet. Directions explain how to lay out and build ne- cessary framing, cover fram- ing with plywood, install a handsome set of sliding, bi- folding or pivot hinged doors.

Torton Star Syndicate) English words creep into German language FRANKFURT (AP) A flood of English words expressions has entered the German language since the end of the Second World War. A new dictionary, lists some Many of the imports are of the technical, economic or military variety and have maintained their original meanings. But a number of words used in everyday speech have been corrupted. When a German speaks of a usually means a gimmick, rather than a joke. Men, not women, wear "slips" In Germany, The word designates men's shorts. While Britons and Americans speak of self-made men, the Germans refer ta hand- made clothing or furniture. A television commentator, in speaking of someone's buoyant good humor, described him as a "regular sonny boy; he's always beaming." This usage appar- ently arises from a confusion between the English word son and the German which means suli. At limes, English words become Germanized by taking on Teutonic verb forms, such as the equivalent of hitchhiking. Other expressions are in- verted: shakehands or slow-go. SHU others lose letters or complete words: "happy end" instead of happy end- ing, ajid "last-not-least" instead of last but not least, A mixture of German and English is evident in such terms as which means road-hog. Ger- mans buy in the "supermarkt." They need a doctor's prescription to buy "antibaby Pillen." German is at the root of many English words. Some have been adopted in unchanged form, such as sauerkraut and kindergarten. The taste of American troops has placed a pseudo- German German restaurant menus. Friday, Sopltmber 3, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Gel those repair jobs done early Prepare well before painting By MR. FIX Painting goes quickyl enough when it is just straight paint- ing over large, uncluttered sur- faces, What slows you down is Ihe preparation and the put- tering about with odds and ends. If you are planning to paint your house in the fall and arc selling aside some time for it, make certain your time is well used by doing some of the small, time consuming jobs now. There are things you can do in a few hours, some paint- ing that can be moved indoors in bad weather. Scraping and priming can slow you down later on, so do those things now. Use a wide- blade putty knife or a wire brush and get rid of all loose paint. Since you are not press- ed for time right now, feather the edges of the paint with sandpaper around the cleaned spots so they don't show. If you get down to bare wood, apply a coat of primer paint. These areas will be ready for painting will) the rest of the house later on. Gutters and downspouts can be tackled separately. These also may need going over with a wire brush. Rusted spots should be sanded clean, then primed. Finish painting the gutters ahead of time and that is that much less to do later on. While you can caulk while you paint it is another job that will slow you down. New caulk- ing cannot be applied over old so don't try to fill in places where I he old caulking is Tacked and falling out. Clean out the old and scrape away all loose fragments. Then apply a strip of fresh caulking. Easi- est method is with a caulking gun loaded with a cayJk-iiUed cartridge. Caulk around diiors and win- dow frames, where foundation and siding meet and the inside corners in the siding. Fill small cracks and gaps with caulking. Damaged or rotted siding should bo spotted now and re- placed. Rust spots may be caused by nail ticads under the iwlril. Sand and spot prime with aluminum paint. If there is anytliing you can remove from the house for painting under shelter do so. Take down awnings, shutters, storm doors. Paint outdoors if the weather is good, otherwise stack these in the garage and make use of a rainy day to paint anyway. Don't forget the storm windows that you have stored for Ihe summer. BRUSH, FEATHER THE.FD6ES WITH SANDPAPER Now is the time to get sup- plies and tools in order, Make certain ladders are sound and in working order. Have enough paint on hand so tiat you don't have I'.1 slop for a shopping trip. Coverage will vary with different types of paint and the condition of yocr siding. The m a n u facturer's instructions will help you make an esti- mate. If you are using oil paints have turpentine or thinner on hand for clpirruiis and for cleaniij brushes, Latex base painls clean up with soas and water. Have plenty of rags around for wiping spills and drips. You need a wide brush (3- or 4-inch) for siding, several narrower brushes for trim. Get old brushes in condition with a commercial brush cleaner and keep them that way. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

SPRING COLOR FOR 1972 'T'HEHE is nothing quile so colorful in the early spring as the beautiful tulips, daffodils, crocus, etc when they burst into bloom. You can have a rainbow of colors right lip until June. It is not too soon to begin thinking about what you should order and to put your bulbs. Around the middle of September, or when- ever they arrive on the mar- ket, you can start planting. Be sure to purchase first-class bulbs ones that are large and firm, free from disease, cute, bruises or any odd color- ed spots. All bulbs require a well- drained, sandy loam. If your earth tends to be somewhat on the clay side, you can add sand and peat moss to improve it. Some well-rolled manure may also be worked into the bottom of the trench or hole, making sure that it docs not come in contact with the bulbs. There are also bulb fertilizers on the market. The earlier you planl your tulips, etc. the better, as this gives them time to estab- lish a good root system before freeze-up. The most popular of al spring flowering bulbs is the tulip. They will grow in either sun or semi-shade. For bold splashes of color, and to make beds or borders more effective, plant in groups rather than in straight rows. Or, you can scat- ter them to give an informal effect. Before planting, scat- ter them on the surface so you will have some idea of what they will look like when ac- tually in bloom. When satisfied with what you see plant them. Tulips should be set 6 to 8 inches deep on a layer of sand. This helps to prevent rot- ting. It is also a good idea to dust your bulbs with a Bulb and Soil Dust.

Apart from the novelty of a mid Summer Christmas, some of the nation's major sporting fixtures take place around the festive period.

A small amount of water may be given and na- ture will do the rest. Mulch the beds with a layer of straw or other covering after the first heavy frost and the ground has started to freeze. I should have mentioned before the actual planting DO NOT put too close to a house founda- tion, particularly if it faces south or west, as it is difficult to prevent too early sprouting In the spring, with the result they are touched by frost. After about three years, tulips should be lifted and separated, other- wise they will become too crowded and will soon deteri- orate. Although daffodils are not too reliable to give persistent bloom for several years, they do deserve a place in the gar- den, if only for a season or two. Grown in clumps, tliey a'dd a bright splash of color in the spring and when cut, give much enjoyment indoors. De- pending on the size of the bulb, they are planted 6 lo 8 inches deep and about Ihe same dis- tance apart. These should be planted as early in September as they are available so a well developed root system will be established before freeze-up. There are so many delightful colors and kinds to choose from. The Crocus and Grape Hya- cinth (Muscari) are lovely in the border or rock garden. They are planted 3 to 4 inch- es deep and grow in cither sun or semi-shade. Snowdrop (Gal- anlhus) and Scilla sibirica bolh grow around 6 inches high and are planted 4 inches deep. Ex pcrimcnt with a frw of [he above-mentioned bulbs lo sec what will grow in your garden.
