FIX If there are leaks in your home s roof drainage system, you are no doubt aware of them. Rain water which escapes through holes in the gutters instead of taking the downspout route may have made dirty streak's down the side of the house. Or, it may have been blown in behind siding at the eaves and caused wet spots on in?'de walls, or dribbled through walls into the basement. In slates where winters are severe, water dripping from gutter leaks turns to icicles during the cold months. Unable to support the added weight, gutter brackets may bend or break. The stress is likely to split the gutters at soldered seams and result in more leaks. You cart nip this chain reaction in the bud by soldering that one little bitty leak now. When you've found the hole, bare both sides of the metal with a piece of sa.ndpaper. "Bare"' means brightly shining, clean and free of rust. If care is not taken to make the metal gleam, solder will not hold. Next, apply paste-type solder flux to the bare metal on both sides of the gutter. If the leak is very small, a drop of solder may stop it. If the hole is larger, it should be patched with a piece of the same metal the gutter is made of. Cut the patch several inches larger than the hole and bend it to fit the contour of the gutter. Use sandpaper to clean and brighten both sides of the patch. An operation called "tinning" is the next step. Using a propane torch, heat the gutter around the hole just enough to melt wire solder. In contact with the hot metal, solder should "flow" out in a thin, smooth layer over the surface surrounding the hole. Use the same technique to "tin" the underside of the patch. Now, place the patch over the hole, Holding a strip of wire solder in your left hand and torch in your right, add more solder Succeeds Ann Morrow Jackie Middleton Greenfield Queen Mueller Climatrol fuel-thrifty oil furnaces give you more comfort at lower cost :*S$L:K&&V Jto get finer comfort, greater satisfaction, insist on a famous Mueller Climatrol when selecting oil heat for your home.

I Of course, we need a front I door and a back door, but the j space used by swinging doors inside the house is a perpetually expensive item. It not only is costly Jo build, but it robs you of usable space for the rest of your life in that house. No doors in some places and sliding doors in others can give you much more house for your money. No man in his right mind would think of installing revolving doors for every bedroom, bathroom and closet in his house. However, to agree with that statement means we are all half crazy, because every time you swing an ordinary door all the way back against the wall you are taking up just about half the amount of space that would be used by a revolving door. Furthermore, space costs a lot of money when you build a house today. The man who gets a livable one-story house built for around $12 a square foot usually considers himself lucky. Still in most cases he wastes $300 or more of his building money on space nt'eded just to swing doors. About two square feet is needed for the full swing of the average door. Additional space required when you step back every time you swing that door makes that waste space even greater. Count the number of room doors and closet doors in your house and you can see why sliding doors are being used so widely in new house plans. So far, most sliding doors are used for closets. They make it possible to devote an entire SAND WELL around the edges of the patch. When this is done, heat the gutter from below. Ciiitter and patch will "sweat" together. Often leaks occur at seams of gutters and at joints with downspouts. Take a few minutes to re- solder them. Wire brush or sandpaper the spots, apply flux, then melt solder into the joints. To mend a seam which has come apart completely, it's necessary to take the gutter off the house. Melt old solder off the two connecting gutter sections, sand them bright and clean on both sides. Since the two will overlap about two inches, flux and "tin" the outside of the top section and the inside of thp bottom one where they will moot. Remember that the overlap should face the direction of water flow. After timing, temporarily lock the two sections together will 0- clamps for final soldering. Arid more solder to the inside of the joint and heat from below to "sweat" the sections together. A last word of caution: when working on your roof's drainage system, don't rest a ladder against Churches Of Nation To Mark Re-formation NEW YORK #—Sunday most of the nation's Protestant churches will observe the 439th anniversary of the Reformation. Reformation Sunday commemorates the date in 1517 when Martin Luiher, an Atigtistinian friar and university professor, posted his 95 theses against indulgences on the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, Germany. The National Council of Churches is sponsor of the day. The Rev. Bcrlyn Farris. director of the council's department of evangelism, says tlie theme of the observance is "the continuity of l!n» Christian Church in the Protestant tradition." 20 Million Plane Landing?, Takeoffs WASHINGTON /P — The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said today there were 20.381000 aircraft bindings and takeoffs at the nation's nonmilitary airporti during the year ended last Jun« 30.

Faucet, , he washer is worn or defective, fixing's one of the commonest household maintenance chores. When in need of repair, faucets let it be known with a demanding drip that has been; likened to the Chinese water torture. Not only hard on the nerves, it also hits the pocketbook by wasting water—and fuel, in the case of leaking hot- water faucets. There are three common causes of leaks in ordinary compression-type faucets: (1) deteriorated packing around the top of the stem, or a loose packing nut; (2) worn or defective washers; (3) worn or corroded valve seats. Taking them in order, here are some corrective measures: ! If water leaks out around the ' faucet s'em where it enters the packing nut, try tightening the nut. If the drip continues, shut off the water supply at the main ; valve in the basement or at any valve Between the faucet and the main valve. ; Next, lossen the packing nut by turning it counterclockwise with an adjustable wrench. Remove the handle and slip the packing nut off the stem. This exposes packing inside the nut and packing washers around the stem. Examine and replace both if worn or defective. Water dripping continually out of the faucet spout is evidence of fault in the washer or valve seat. To get at the source of trouble, loosen the packing nut anc turn the faucet handle as if to turn on the water.
