Suggestions For Mixing Concrete Many home owners like to make '.lulr own concrete repairs ljw;iu--e ™ often the -job i.s "too small to Aisltfy calling in a reuulni repairman. TliKc proportions for concrtie :ni.xtuics are recommended by the Technical Division of the F'.'dornl lioii'iin-g Administration: l r or plain concrete, use 1 part Portland cement, 'i parts sand, 5 parts gravel or crushed stoiw. for reinforced cuncreie, use 1 purl potl- i 'and ccmc-iH. 2 parts sand. 1 pans jravel or crushed stone. No mnre than stvtn t;nllons of water per i kit's ol cement .should be u--ecl, and _whc.« the agsreuate is .ili-pKdy "moist, Hit re should be less wuler. us the strenalli of the concrete depends lo a grcul extent on tlie fliiantity of water used in propor- i.'on to Hint of cement. Repairs Must Be Completed To Refinance When n home owner refinance the mciigage on his home through the FHA plan, evidence must be presented that necessary alterations, additions, or repairs have been completed. Federal Housing Administration officials point out. This evidence may be in the form of a Repair Compliance Inspection by a Federal Housing Administration representative or a statement from the individual whose mortgage is being refinanced that the alterations, additions, or repairs have been fully and satisfactorily completed. When alterations, additions, or repairs may have nlfected the structural mialities or design of the home, it is required that a Repair Compliance Inspection be made FHA officials say. Particular cure is used during Repair Compliance Inspections, special nttcnticn being given to whether any .section or members of the stnicture have been weakened due to curring or changing am! whether bearing loads have been dangerously increased. liftviiic DRAINAGE TAX NOTICE NAME rails Klldi llrjiiri—X'K'IJ ' '_''_ \\ Jot Btc K^.e Acres Hoof llrcks Hours of relLixntkn in fresh air are made possible in consested areas by the application of hravv rooflnn materials to Hat roofs, thus Cedar Lining Gives Closets Mothproofing Converting large cksets into cedar clothes closets can bo done with funds obtained from qualified private lending institutions undor the Modernization Credit Plan of lhe Federal Housing Administration.
