"Best home for the money," says American Home magazine. Thank you, American Home, for those kind words in your May issue. And for your .color photos of our three bedroom home in Windsor Park. "Good design is certainly the theme of this house . . . " And thank you,- architects, Ambrose and Swanson, A.l.A. " . . . large expanses of glass and tlti extension of the brick walls and wood beams from inside to out also reflect the special beauty of the desert." We use the world's greatest landscape specialist, Nature. Then we let you enjoy what Nature has wrought. You get a glass window wall in every room. Altogether, 575 sq. ft. Which is almost like living outdoors. "Deep overhangs . . . protect the glass areas from the hot snn . . . " Our roofs have a 3-foot overhang. Not the 16 or 24 inches you're accustomed to. You get more protection from sun and rain. And lower cooling bills in summer. " . . . cathedral ceilings provide a cooling effect and a sense of spaciousness." Exposed ceiling boards are all kiln-dried. That means, they're "baked" to remove most of the moisture content. They aren't apt to twist or warp. Stronger ceilings. Better looking. And these boards are pre-palnted before they're nailed. All surfaces are covered and protected. Not just what you can see. "The plan takes full advantage of the climate and promotes outdoor living ivhich is so popular here." One of our Windsor Park designs has a private sunning patio off the master bedroom. Great place for an afternoon snooze. "Best home for the money." That's because the three bedroom model goes for $17,750. Just $19,500 for the four bedtoom.

The safety tips, recommended by Chemical Specialties Manufacturers, are: 1. Read the label carefully before you even open the container. 2. Store pesticides out of reach of children and pets, outside the home, away from food and under lock and key. ' 3. Keep sprays and dusts in their original containers, which should be kept tightly closed. 4. Do not smoke while spraying or dusting. 5. Avoid inhaling sprays or dusts. Wear protective clothing and masks if the label so directs. 6. Cover bird baths, dog dishes, fish pools before spraying. 7. Use separate equipment for applying hormone- type herbicides. This will guard against injury to susceptible plants. 8. Dispose of empty containers so they will not endanger humans, animals or valuable plants. 9. Observe label directions and cautions to keep . residues on edible plants within safe limits. 10. Do not plant mint, berries or other edibles near ornamentals that may be sprayed frequently with pesticides. o o o While on the subject of spraying, we suggest aerosol containers.for the timid or lazy gardener. There are two new items. One is a rose and flower spray in a can that keeps on spraying when turned upside down. This permits you to get at the underside of leaves--the insect hideout. This preparation combines insecticide, miticide and fungicide for use against aphids, mites, Japanese beetles, powdery mildew, leaf- spot and diseases. The other is to attack dandelions and other broadleaf weeds. This 500-shot container is held in position by a hand strap at the bottom, which facilitates aiming and firing by pulling a trigger. This preparation contains 2, 4-D and 2,4,5-T. O 0 O Now you may buy flowers from a coin machine. We inserted quarters in a vending device at the International Flower Show in New York City and took out a nicely packaged bouquet of tea roses ·-- our choice among the fresh cut flowers visible in the lighted, refrigerated machine, which requires no plumbing. There's also a machine in Penn Station. You can get the flowers in a flexible plastic "breathing" container-with a rigid top and a twine handle. The flower stems are in a ' plastic vial of water with a preservative. The prices, for roses, or a corsage of orchid, gardenia, camellia or carnations, vary from $1 to $2.50 and depend on the season, · PAGE 76 TUCSON DAILY CITIZEN SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1963
