Page 14 The Salina Journal's Budget Saver Tuesday, November 17,1961 A perfect time to insulate By GENE GARY Cppley News Service. Q. We have a problem which we hope you may have some suggestions to solve. We are thinking of re-siding an old boose and are planning to use mineral fiber shingles. Also we need to insoiate the walls. Could this be accomplished at the same time? Is there an easy and inexpensive way to accomplish this project? — Carl J A. A. Yes, and ther perfect ' lime to insulate is when you star the residing project Many old houses were built before thermal insulation for walls became standard practice. To insulate the walls of an old house, simply install the mineral fiber shingles undercoursed with insulating backer boards. The backer boards are available pre-cut to proper size at building supply dealers. This procedure will also give the shingles a heftier shadow line. Q. I would appreciate your help on removal of a stain. I washed the white deposit from the battery of my truck off with a hose. It ran down the concrete driveway and left a brown stain al.. .most immediately. It has been there about two weeks now and I haven't been able to clean it away. — Jim O, Bonita, Calif. A. Because concrete is porous, you may not be able to remove the stain entirely. Or in some cases you can lighten the stain but the concrete will bleach lighter than the surrounding area. Try spraying with oxalic acid, mixed one pound to a gallon of water Use the acid with extreme care to avoid injuring your flesh. Another method is to apply a poultice made up of one part sodium citrate crystals to six parts water and add sufficient powdered whiting to make a paste. Spread heavy layers of this .and cover with a plastic sheet Let this remain overnight and then rinse away. Good luck with the results. Q.

I would like to follow your suggestion by covering our soil, but I am worried that the material would trap any odors, which in turn would further stagnate the space under the sheeting material and create • greater odor problem. Our ventilation is good, yet the ground seems to be slightly damp, certainly not bone dry as would be expected. I would appreciate it if you could clarify this point for me. — S.S., Del Mar, Calif. A. There is no other recommended procedure that I am aware of. Once covered, the ground should dry if there is no source of moisture. Check your drainage to determine that all water drains away from your house. As you mentioned, adequate cross ventilation is also very important. Q. Please tell me how I can end my war with carpet beetles. They are really getting me down after fighting The Philadephia Phillies 1980 World Series victory over the K.C. Royals was their first ever championship and only third appearance in the World Series .... when were the other two years the Phillies appeared in the World Series, aaainst what teams?

I clean and inspect closets and drawers often and really go through everything, and also spray regularly. I hope yon have an answer to my problem coon. — Mrs. LJLB. A. For a permanent solution to your problem, I would advise calling a professional exterminator. Your problem apparently is not a do-it-yourself project Fumigating kills any type of infestation and for a small amount of insurance, you can get annual check-ups to be sure there is no recurrence of the problem.
