Window Can Be Frame of Fall Picture and rural dwellers everywhere is here again. With it comes that an- EH? l° Und of tim e-consuming Dobs, house cleaning, paintine raking leaves and generally S paring the house for winter These jobs really aren't so bad however, if you are fortunate wi?h g n' 1° be ^ ng in a house with picture windows. Somehow ' m u, ple i ree just e blue haze of an tumn twilight across the fields nw u, gold or the blue haze of an autumn twilight across the fields can take the drudgery out of routine L3SKS, Large picture windows are au- preciated for another reason, too. Not the least of dreary household chores is the painstaking job of cleaning dozens of small and often inaccessible window panes. Multiply the number of window panes in your home by 4 and you have a staggering total of corners i to clean. Dirt lodges in these corners with relative ease, but it is an all-day job to ferret it out if -, <st -y &u have many windows in your - home. On the other hand,, picture windows of plate glass can be cleaned in a jiffy with a squeegee ^ or standard window cleaner. Of course, if your windows open on desirable views then plate glass is far superior to the outmoded "spider web" type of window that carves a lovely vista into a dozen or more fleeting glimpses. With the advent of insulating window units, where 2 plates of glass seal in a space of dehydrated air, the old worries of heat loss during cold weather are gone. The . dehydrated air is hermetically sealed inside the unit and acts as a perfect insulator against; temperature extremes. It also drastically reduces fog and moisture that forms on single-paned windows due to the sharp indoor-outdoor temperature difference. Electrical Wiring up to a standard, not down to a price C. J. Smith Electrical Construction 115 7th St. S. E. ^ Phone 3250 AP Newsfeatures THI HREE-BEDROOM HOUSE is 58 feet overall and reqiijues a 65-foot inside lot or 50-foot corner iot. It was designed by Walter T. Anicka of Ann Arbor, Mich., as his plan No. 712 and contains 15,720 cubic feet, a figure that can be used to estimate local building costs. Elimination of the basement and use of radiant heat mean economy and the sliding closet doors mean ample wall space. The architect recommends frame siding or cinder block painted white with a dark asphalt shingle roof. He calls attention to the built-in breakfast nook and big living area.

McGowan Speaks of Need for Better Fire Protection Clear Lake—Because of a most inadequate water pressure and water supply, Clear Lake is in danger of heavy fire losses should any major fires get started, City Councilman and Fire Chief Keith McGowan told the Clear Lake Rotary club at the regular meeting Thursday noon at the All Veterans Social Center. The city has only 6 or 7 hydrants that give enough pressure, even under good conditions, to enable the fire department to do any kind of a job of fire fighting, McGowan said. Most hydrants will give from nothing to 16 pounds pressure, while 40 or more is needed to do the job, he pointed out. Standpipe Inadequate Only the top one-third of the present standpipe is usable, according to McGowan. It was originally built for a town of 1,500. It is now in a weakened condition and probably constitutes a hazard, he said. Petitions asking for an election on the proposal to erect a half- million gallon water tower financed by a $98,000 bond issue will be presented to the city council, McGowan said. This amount would include improving certain mains to make adequate pressure available throughout the city. Insurance Rate High Making adequate pressure and water supply available would actually be a savings in taxes within a year or two, McGowan explained, because Clear Lake's insurance rates today arc about (he highest .n tho state of Iowa, due largely to the water situation. Firms who have wanted to install sprinkler systems to protect their buildings and reduce their insur- KEITH McGOWAN ance rales could not get an okaj to do so because of the extreme!} low water pressure, he pointec out. Leonard Rodeward invited Ro tarians and wives to inspect hi field of chrysanthemums east o town Sunday afternoon. The firs group o£ junior Rotarians, higl school seniors who visit the club was welcomed by Supt. T. G Burns. The group included Bob Asbe, Bob Bartlett and Gordon Bruchner.
