Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, September 28, 1973 HOME OF THE WEEK DESIGN R3-1660 2031 Sq. ft. N R3-I660 Interesting treatment of the exterior in colonial brick and shuttered windows with ver- tical rough sawn boards accenting the service end, shows the true ranch home style at its best. Projecting side gables add interest to the roof line and the large double garage can be built to face the front if desired. The huge "family kitchen" is a modern innovation that concentrates family living in this area and reserves the living and dining room areas for formal enter- taining. If the lot can be grad- ed to slope to the rear and left end of the plans show a layout of two future bedrooms and a bath on the lower level. An added convenience for the homernaker is the laundry and powder room located beside the kitchen, with direct access to garage.

Toronto Star Syndicate) Hunters' numbers growing What is it that makes a man leave his warm bed in the middle of a winter's night so that he can stand for hours knee deep in water while waiting patiently for a flock of mallards to come up over the horizon? Why does he leave his com- fortable suburban home and drive hundreds of miles into rugged country for a chance at a 10-point whitetail buck? The answer is really simple. It's because he loves the out- doors and the unique challenge that only the sport of hunting can provide. And these aren't just craggy-faced outdoorsmen who were born into hunting because of geographic location. They come from all parts of the country big cities, rural areas and subur- bia. And they come from a variety of backgrounds. Even more significant is the fact that a growing number of young people are becoming interested in hunting. These are bright, aware youngsters who are genuinely concerned with ecology, conservation and everything that makes up the out of doors and who have brought a new dimension to one of the world's oldest sports. Basic mechanism remains same Make blinds work properly By MR. FIX Fancy blinds, drapes and shutters notwithstanding, roll up window shades are still very much with us. And while changes have occurred in shade material, color, design and trim, the basic mechan- nism of the roller has remain- ed the same.'' So have the basic problems. They still sometimes go up with a bang without any war- ning. Or they fail to go up at all. A window shade roller is simple to repair. Don't rush out and buy a new shade just because the roller is not func- tioning properly. Learn to un- derstand its operation and repairing it will be simple. The wooden roller is hollow. It has a spring inside. There is a pin on each end of the roller. One is round and the other is flat. The flat one rotates and the spring is attached to it. The round pin simply supports the other end of the roller in the brackets. When you pull the shade down, the motion winds the spring. When the shade is down, ratchet pawls or catches at that end of the roller drop into place and lock the roller. This prevents the spring from rewinding on its own. When the shade doesn't wind up all the way it means there is a lack of tension in the spring. You will have to wind it tighter than it is. To do this, pull the shade down about two-thirds of the way. Then remove the roller from the window and wind the shade by hand. Hold it firmly and set the roller back in the brackets. Then pull it down again. A shade that snaps out of control when you raise it in- dicates a spring too tightly wound. Reverse the procedure just outlined. Raise the shade all the way. Then remove it from the window and unroll it by hand, about half-way down. Put the roller back. It should go up without snapping. When you can't make the shade stop where you want it to, when it snaps right back up when you pull it down, then the spring is not locking in position. The pawls stop the rotating pin normally. If they stick, the ratchet mechanism will not work. Remove the metal cap from the flat pin. This will reveal the pawls. Generally dust and dirt will make them stick. Clean them and lubricate with a light machine oil so they will work easily. If a roller sticks, the brackets are too close together. If you can't move the brackets (the metal fit- tings that hold the roller) then try flattening them with aa hammer, tapping lightly. Or tap the fixed pm, driving it in just a little. If neither of these tricks work, remove the cap and pin (the fixed pin) and sand or file that end of the wooden roller before replac- ing the pin. When a shade falls out of the brackets are too far apart. Brackets on the outside of the window frame might be mov- ed to the inside. Or shim the brackets with layers of card- board. The fixed pin is little more than a nail and it can be pulled out slightly with pliers. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) bulbissimo! If they're Dutch Bulbs, we've got them!

Archery said by some to be more than years old has gained the attention and favor of millions. Why archery has become popular and continues to gain Your garden By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. IMPROVING YOUR COLOR SCHEME Were you happy with the color combinations in your garden this year? I can always find room for improvement in mine. While a great many of the flowers have been nipped by "jack even at this late date, there is still time to go over your beds, etc. and re- do them on paper so you will be already for next spring. Starting this week, while the flowers are still in the garden, I am going out with pen and pad and make my changes eliminating those that did not combine well, either in the way of color and form, etc. Even the most professional people make mistakes, and sometimes new kinds and varieties stand up to expec- tations better in one place than another, according to climate and weather. During the summer, I also took many colored slides which will help when I get down to the actual layout of certain areas. No doubt most of your land- scape picture includes trees, shrubs and lawn, so I will concentrate mostly on the an- nuals which give us such a sparkling splash of color. They are so versatile you can create interesting effects by combining several in a bed or having tints and tones of one particular color of a favorite plant, or by using some just for accent. Most shades of yellow and orange are quite compatible with other flowers and add a cheery look, making it almost seem as if the sunshine were there con- stantly. One often thinks of grey or white as colors for toning down or separating clashing colors, but pale yellow is just as important. If yellow is your favorite color, and I'm quite partial to it, you can plant an entire bed say of Marigolds, starting with the paler tones, to gold and orange, with the taller ones at the back, graduating down to the dwarfs, with a few of the darker shades of almost deep orange-brown intermingled here and there. Also remember that while you can have a complete bed of round flowers of one color and its shades, it makes for a more striking picture if some of the spikey types are combined with the round. A very lovely orange or yellow flower is the Calendula, and these go nicely with your blue Ageratum or yellow or white Snapdragons. I think Zinnias are so rich and colorful and are best planted in groups to be the most effec- tive. My favorites are Peter Pan Plum, a dwarf variety of approximately 12 inches, Torch, a beautiful burnt orange, 24 inches and Wild Cherry, a deep cherry-red, 28 inches. Pink adds a particularly delicate touch to any garden and the deeper shades of rose are so beautiful. Try the pink and rose Impatiens with some of the fibrous Begonias and some of the exquisite Coleus (Carefree variety in par- Pink Petunias, and there are so many lovely varieties, go well with blue Lobelia, White Alyssum, blue Salvia, and even dwarf Marigolds. These all make a delightful picture. The Peter Pan Pink Zinnia could be used with white Alyssum, blue Lobelia or deep pink semi- dwarf Snapdragons. For something different, grow Jewels of Opar, a very unique and interesting annual with tiny pink flowers on long sprays. After the flowers drop, tiny ruby-red seed pods appear and these may be dried for winter bouquets. There are so few really out- standing blue but I do try and use some of them as accent plants or to tone down overly strong colors. Lobelia and Salvia 'Blue Bedder' are two of my favorites and I use them in the borders at inter- vals, to give a pleasing and refreshing effect. For those who like Ageratum, this goes particularly well with Marigolds, Dahlias or Snapdragons. Cornflowers combine with Petunias, Marigolds or Zinnias. Platycodons are good com- panions for the white Shasta Daisy and yellow Snapdragons or pink Petunias. Red is con- sidered the strongest and warmest color and quite eye- catching, and should be used with restraint. Some, interesting combinations are red and white Snapdragons with pale yellow Marigolds. Some of the 'blues' combine well with red. Red Geraniums; and white Petunias are and red Petunias go with" Lobelia, Marigolds, Celosia, white Salvia, Alyssum and" Zinnias. In a bed you might have blue Lobelia or Ageratum as an edging, with yellow Snapdragons, cactus type pink and orange Zinnias, pink Petunias, golden Marigolds, red Snapdragons, white Petunias, with pattern repeated.
