TUESDAY, AUGUST T, 1951 BLYTHEVTU,?;, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Fan /s Still Best Bet For Cooling House THE BEST WAY to keep a house Feool at this time of the yeai- is to build il nfrth of the Arctic Circle. If you've had to locaU?. nearer to business, you can have a hot time with the rest of as—trying out alt into a 16-inch-wide casement window as well as in regular double hung sasn Bill Welch, Jr.. of Cincinnati, who pioneered in the hassock type fan some years ago, designed tht- twin window fan and the artful dodges designed for what [claims th<*t it will displacfe the glamor people jokingly call cll- male control. Everyone knows he might have an air eor>led house if he could af- lord it, but that's still a costly proposition—costly to install and costly to run. Ami then there are vonderful things in the offing — for instance, heat pumps that will suck tht heat down to the bowels of the earth where it belongs. But what id needed most Is something here and noiv that can be bought for h££ than the cost of a new car. The eleclrlc Ian seems to be it. • • * BIG CHANGES have been made !n fans in recent years. A trip (a the department store or appliance ahcp will convince you. There are fans that squat on the floor like hassocks, fans that fit into windows and lans to Install In the attic to puli evening breezes into your windows. Sine* getting hot air out of the house after a blistering the crux of thli comfort problem, we'll probably always have a need for Afans. As a rule they are Inexpen- T«iv8 to operate, simple to install »nd maintain and they offer years of service. One of the newest types of window fans is a twin motor Job designed with the idea of drawing warm air out of the house while pouring cooler air In. The two motors have separate controls and each in reversible. You can run one at full speed exhausting warm air, while the other at a lower speed brings in the evening's coolness. Or you ran run both together in either direction These twin farts are encased in a gray steel housing not unlike small suitcase. The complete unit weighs less than 20 pounds and cubic feet of air per minute. That should change the air in K good sized house in less than 10 minutes. IN USING any window fan It's a good idea to choose a window that will allow the fan to draw outdoor air across the entire ream before exhausting it. The best location is not always the same room -you want to cool the most. The window should not face prevailing winds Wind blowing against a fan will slow it down and cuts its efficiency- Keep other windows closed on the same wall with a window fan. Other windows in the room should not be opened if you plan to cool adjoining rooms. When cooling more j than one room, think of the inlet end outlet windows as valves, People have .tried all sorts of expedients ior cooling houses. They have hung wet towels on radiators and blown fans against them to cool by evaporation. But with the humidity what it is on most summer days It's seldom that you want to odd more moisture to the air, Closing all windows and doors in the morning and pulling the blinds can keep a house cooler, but the air Is stagnant. Operating the blower only on a circulating warm-air heating rclant will cool a closed house by circulating (he air through the cool ducts In a basement. But this, too, means unchanged air. So the fans seem to have it. ATTIC FANS have had many years of service now BJJ breeze makers. A 48-inch blower properly installed in an attic, with an adequate ceiling grille, will draw 16.500 cubic feet of air per minute.

Although no over-all shortage In cubic feet, supplies of fuel oil and coal is presently being forecast for next winter, both industries are concerned that householders in many sections of the country will experience spot shortages and discomfort due to overtaxed transportation. Federal Coal Administrator Charles W. Connor recently stated that "we may face an acute transportation bottleneck next fall and winter In getting coal to the con- iutner," because of the accelerated defense efforts. With millions of gal [OMB ol fuel oil normally transported by lank cars, ships and barges, the petroleum industry fear.s a similar transportation problem.

If this occurs, it is generally agreed that the United States will have to "supply some of the needs of Western Europe. This, they say, might mean a shortage for American • householders. Larger Storage Advocated Because of these factors, the Construction Research Bureau, national clearing house Cor building information, today urgec homeowners to increase the size f their fuel sforage capacity 1m- ediately and to take other sieps i assure winter comfort and re- uce their consumption of fuel. Homes lacking r^orm windows nd weathisrstripping should be grjipped with these fuel-saving teens this summer, the Buruau aid. and owners of homes no roperly Insulated should have r walls and roof areas blown ull of mineral wool insulation he- ore fa!!. These improvements will ave 35% of the fuel used in the verage home, according to gov- rnment scientists. "To relieve the transportation ituatton, users of hard fuels should nlarge the size of their bins with the next few weeks and 1m- nediately have them filled to ca- acity," the Bureau continued. One ton of anthracite coal re- uires 40 cubic feet of space. Thus 10 tons, the, bin should be 6 eet high, 6 feet wide and 11 feet one. Soft coal requires 46 cubic eet per ton and coke requires 65 "Oil storage tanks In m/;i lomes are unnecessarily small. The average size holds 275 gal- ons and needs filling about four imes during a heating season. A ,000-gal!on tank, however, requires lling only twice during a normal •inter. By putting in larger tanks nd filling them now. it Is possible hat suffering next winter will be .voided." tound-Robin Fire Report 'ssued in Montana MISSOULA.

Towns and cities all over the country wer« affected . . . hut the consequences of failure hung with particular foreboding over New York and its jam-packed millions. With reservoirs standing at a third of capacity, the compelling need for additional water resources was suddenly thrust upon the attention of the most Indifferent citizen. And communities everywhere, whether affected by the shortage or nol, began appraising the status of their water supplies. They found a number of factors which were influencing the picture. Throughout America two patterns of population movement have been revealed in recent years. People are leaving the rural areas and moving to the cities; people are leaving the cities and moving lo nearby suburbs. The result—a tremendous population growth in metropolitan areas. In terms of ivaler supply, this means ever-increasing demand. Th* country cousin who settles in the city must now be supplied. And so must the city cousin who becomes a suburbanite. He moves to the suburbs because he finds there the urban facilities to which he is accustomed in a more attractive selling. Water Is Your Cheapest Commodity-Use It Freely Blytheville Water Co.
