SCREEN FOR COMFORT — Swimming pool gets exciting outline, privacy and a wind barrier with this intriguing, tall fence. Screen is built of western red cedar Ix2s on a frame of 2x4s, with 2x2 battens nailed at three-foot intervals for added dimension. Screen style would be perfect for a patio wall. Wooden Fences teed Not Look Like Hate Walls By VIVlAiy BROWN AJ> Newsfeaturcs Writer Most people .want privacy, even when they have only a tiny plot >f ground surrounding their home. "We love our house, but our neighbor's backyard looks like a link heap," writes a woman and everytime we sit with riends on our lawn, she has her wash blowing in our faces. My lusband says it would cost too much to screen their yard out ( ith trees, as we- would need to get some six feet or taller if we'd lake a hedge. Is there a better solution?" Wooden Fences Wooden fences do not need to ook like hale walls. An attractive askel weave style fence made ith wide boards and 2 by 4s wov- n through vertically could be relty,. and you could plant a few ast-growing trees in .strategic pots to soften the look. Louvered esigns with the boards placed in vertical position have become oopular in recent years. It is a ood fence where you do not wish o shut out cool breezes, but •auld still like privacy. The ame louver idea may be worked ut horizontally. Some people like .woven fences, nade-of saplings wired together, ut neighbors sometimes resent lem. If you want to have a fence igher than funds permit for ma- erials, you could place horizontal cards on uprights, starting the cards about two feet above the round. Foliage could be planted elow taking up the slack left by space and softening the lines f it. If you adopt this method, oasider getting some of the in- xpensive tiny evergreens in bulk o use as a border. Another Problem Another outdoor problem is this ne: We'd like to do a little patio on the side of our house. My husband says he doesn't mind doing] the work, and could do it in the fall. But just about anything worthwhile we want to do seems exp.-nsive. Bricks and flagstone would make the cost prohibitive as we would need to put a cement foundation down first. A wood deck wouldn't go with our fieldstone house," writes a new homeowner. A cement foundation alone could do the trick as one couple discovered. When he had poured the cement, he decided to try an experiment based on an Oriental idea he had seen done with sand in a yard. He took a rake and threaded a wavelike pattern down the almost-dry length of the con crete, matching the entire area into a uniform series of the waves. He decided not to use flagstone, and as a matter of fact decorated the little patio in an Oriental theme with wind-chimes hanging from house overhang, potted white pines, borders of bright flowers. Indoor Problem An indoor problem, from reader: 'We have a handsome carved newel post in a home that is being torn down to make room for a road. It will not fit into our new Irome, but everyone advises taking it with us. My husband says it will just be another piece of baggage that will wind up in the cellar. I've heard people have these posts made into lamps. Do they stain or decorate them? This one is mahogany." A very pretty grained wood would be used as it is. Some people add an eagle to the base of tlie lamp, giving an old look. But you can add a motif more suited lo your furnishings, and in balance with the size o! the post.

Rowley Dial MO 3-9669 Don't Pour Chemicals Into Waste Disposer The modern food waste disposer makes it unnecessary to use lye or other chemical drain cleaners. The natural scouring action of the disposer will keep the sink drain clean and trouble-free. Because the disposer action eliminates the necessity for chemical cleaners, many manufacturers use alloys to make their disposers. If the homeowner inadver tently pours chemical cleansers into.6ne of these units, the alloys will be attacked and corrosion will begin. American-Made Brass Goods Mean Quality Top engineering goes into the design and manufacture of plumbing brass goods, American- made faucets and valves are unequalled in engineering, durabil- ty and styling.
