This screening can greatly reduce the ven- I tilating efficiency of the opening. Insect screen with 16 meshes to the inch can cut the ventilating capacity of any opening by one-hall'. If you are planning attic lou- vert' or other ventilation opening.-: and intend to cover them v.-ith screens, figure on making the openings twice as big as needed, if }ou intend to use insect screen. For coarse mesh, eight to the inch, make the opening one and one-fourth the size of an unscreened vent. Quarter- inch hardware mesh. adequate against squirrels and birds, makes virtually no difference in the size of the opening. 46 Million Homes There are now 46 million dwelling units — homes and apartments — in the United States.
