Modern home Architect Urges Hdme Building Based on Habits of Family wQllliOli "Budget your family's living.ha- """"" blls as well as your pocketbook," Is the advice given to home-phiim- ers by Harold R. Sleeper, one of the architects giving n series of lectures «l Oolumhla University, New York City, on "How lo Plan and Build a Home." Emphasizing overall Mr. Sleeper points out that the living habits of the whole family over a period of yen re should be considered. "Let you. '«rr.lly .living habits determine the style ol architecture," he advises. ''Don't arbitrarily decide on n Colonial, Georgian, Gape Cori or ranch-style house. u liber*! and flexible, Consider • yjur- everyday • p-»Uc»n or obligate your credit to IKUm—«'ov example, ftlu-thcr you have young children, and whether you spend much lime outdoors on a'lawn or terrace.

The Voof Itself dominates the appearance of a house because It is the most expansive area and the to draw attention. Mr. Sleeper advises the selection of a colorful, fire-resistant roofing material. Modern asphuli shingles p.i'-'e a house essential protection from fire and also make it streamlined iinii attractive in a harmonizing color scheme. Another element of home-planning emphasl'm; by Mv. Sleeper IK that the living room should face away from the street with Itu noise and dirt. It Is usually the mini used area in the house and should command tho most pleasant view, he .says. The living'room should be on the south whenever possible, niul Ihe kitchen and work areas in the north where normal kitchen heal will help absorb cold winter winds Eagle Beauty Shop And School Remodeled Remodeling of the Ragle Beauty Shop and School is virtually finished.

Unusual Alcove Doorway Early Repair of Roof Leaks Held Desirable ; You've learned your lesson to late If you don't know your roo caks until you see water dvlppln on the floor. Neglect In repairing or replacing the roof on your house will result In expensive repairing anil redecorating. Serious, undetected leaks will also start timbers rotting. After the next rain, look at the roof boards In your little. If they are even slightly wet, your roof .leaks. The small amount of water that comes through does not fall directly down but trickles down the underside of the roof and runs between the walls. Finally, as the leaks become larger, the roof boards become so saturated, they will absorb no mor c water. Then, nfter a heavy rain, water drops straight down to the ceiling of your rooms. Minor leaks, detected early, can be repaired. Large leaks necessitate re-roofing. In either case, nsphn'.i shingles, easily applied over an old ^roof, will give wealher and fire- resistance. Native Trees Serve. As Tips for Gardeners Native trees can give gardener; line of their most reliable imlicnl- on.s as to the ri^ht lime lo fitiiH gardens in various sections of the country. Prcvalllr;.- wealher, altitude, e x- pocurc. and soil types are vital influences. However, every gardener may easily determine the ap'- jiroxiinatc' starting date for his locality by keeping a close watch on native trees when they begin their yearly growth, Hardy seeds may be sown '-as soon as the frost is out of tho ground and Ihe soil is dry enough to linncly. without changing its physical condition. When apple trees ate in full bloom and maple leaves are expanding, the danger from night frosts is practically vcr. For safety's sake allow another veek before sowing tender annuals. : or plants native to semi-tropical ir warm climates, wait until the >aks send out their first leaves. Occasionally, even our native trees ire fooled, but this occurrence Is extremelv rare.

Salt is one of the earth's commonest minerals, so thousands of tons cf it are carried to the sea yearly. The fishes and other marine life of the sea make use of the other minerals (observe the beautiful pearls and shells of the sea, for example), but do not need the great excess of salt — and so we have salt water. It is estimated that 160,000,000 tons of minerals arc carried to the sea each year — there being enough i the sea to cover all of the earth's land to a depth of 400 feet. Fire is one of the most useful servants of man, but without the power, WATER, to control it, it would destroy him. Water creates a paradise on earth. It not only sutains life, but gives us our beautiful forests, gardens and flowers, while lack of it means bar- enncss, bleakness, dessert and death. Water means happiness and prosperity; no water means poverty and despair. Blytheville Water Co.
