Very often the upper part of a room is vcrj warm, but it is Uio cool in tin lower part. Even though there arc exhaus fans in the kitchen and bathroom those windows steam up. We have storm windows and doors a! through the house. The heat is electric. Would it help to put In baseboard heat? ANSWER: It would appear that you have a problem of overin- sulation. When it is properly installed, insulation can save up to 30 per cent in heating costs, as we'll as making a home far more comfortable. But even the manu- "acturers of insulation admit thai it is possible to over-insulate. One theory is that this occurs occasionally with electric heat, since extra heavy insulation is often recommended for that type of heating. In this particular case, it is quite possible that the walls anc ceilings are over-insulated, bul that there is insufficient insulation in the 'floors. Is there an unheated crawl space beneath the house, a concrete slab floor without a vapor barrier or an air space between the top of the foundation wall and the wooden siT of the house? If you have one of these conditions, depending on the type of construction, it mighj be causing part of the trouble. In any case, baseboard- type iieating would help. But our advice is to have a heating contractor determine what's wrong after a personal inspection. FORBUSCO FORTUNA BUILDERS SUPPLY RA 5-3413 West of Safowoy Fortune the kitchen was so livable an workable. This is not an unusua case, she said. 'It's the woman who has th first and last word on what he kitchen should be like," a sale consultant, Dr. Joseph W. Thomp son of Michigan State University told the trainees. "If you wan to be successful in the kitche business, you must learn to listen Given half a chance, the home maker will tell you all you nee to know about the kind of a kitch en she wants to buy." Want Better Kitchens There are not nearly enoug dtchcn specialists today lo mee the demand, he said. More thai half a million kitchens are re modeled annually. This represent a billion dollar-plus market whicl s far from the potential becaus seven out of ten women are dis satisfied with their present kitcli ens. Women seeking ideas on kitch ens can get them in a number o ways, other speakers advised Newspapers and magazines an ·ime sources. Design centers am markets in large cities are othe 'showcases." Home shows, stat and county fairs also are sources if kitchen ideas. Manufacturers of brand name wood cabinets, it was pointed out often are helpful in recommend ng kitchen specialists. Distinctive Trees More Attractive; If someone asked you to nami .he most attractive small tree in ,he general nursery trade, you could make a good' case for the Japanese maple. At least it would be very hard to find others more ittractive. Whether grown as bonss hvnrfs. as container trees or as 'nil size specimens, Japanese Maples are all the gardener could ask. Their delicately cul eaves, modest size and attract ve fall coloring are all plus fac ors. And even if the fall color Iocs not reach its potential, as ften happens in even-lempera- ure coastal gardens, you cannot cally find fault with this hand- omc tree. Members of the California As- ociation of Nurserymen offer everal Japanese Maples which he gardener should acquaini limself with. Commonest ol hem is the standard green leai ariety which so often fills the iced of a small patio tree. Its eaves are deeply cut in some pecimens, not so deeply cut in thers. Choose them when they .re in' leaf if you are particular bout this. This is the Japanese laple which often blazes with olor in fall gardens. Another is the Bloodleaf Maple, tree startling red-purple color ·om the time it breaks its \vin- r rest until the leaves drop in all. Still another is the lovely aceleaf Maple, whose red eaves are so finely cut you might think them shredded if hey weren't so delicately pat- erned. AH the Japanese Maples sub- nit to dwarfing and are excel- ent tubbed specimens on the eck. Laceleaf Maple, however, s a natural dwarf, doing most of growing horizontally. It is ex- ellent on the margin of a pool, 'here part of it is trained to ang out over the water. A more eautiful sight you couldn't ask These Japanese Maples are not eat lovers and in the warmer ections of California are 'best rown in the filtered shade of ller trees or on the north side f a house away from the sun's ottest rays. They are relatively esistant to drought but when rown in tins extra care should e taken to prevent their drying; ut.

For anyone who lives in an apartment, it's the only answer. But even the gardener with space to spare enjoys having plants close by where he can putter with them day or night. Indoor plants are the hobbyist's delight, and the person who buys his first Alrican Violet or his first Orchid often launches himself into a new way of life. Before you kno-' it, he's added another and still another companion to his ·irst purchase--usually the same :ype of plant, for hobbyists are specialists, too. If you like the idea, but don't mow "here to start, an African Violet or two or three will provide the ideal launching point.

For those of you who might want detailed infurmatioii, I vould like to make a few suggestions. A really first rate book- et is the "Rhododendron Issue" of the "Journal of the California lorticulture Society," (Vol. XXLI, »Io. 2, California Academy of Sciences, Golden Gate Park, San r raneisco. 18).

These latter arc at their finest in he winter months, hut when you lave gained some experience in growing them, you'll find they an be forced into bloom at almost any season. And since th hey row outdoors, too, they are de- irable "house" plants, indeed. 1) preservative wherever it is to ;ome into direct contact with the ground. From a decorative point "f view, here are a variety oi deck- ng installations which may be 'hosen for a sundeck. Decking may be installed flat, on end, in arallcl lines, diagonally, in a lerringbone p a t t e r n or in a larquet-like design. The latter may be created by using squares f 2 by 4s alternating in check- rboard fashion over a founda- ion of 2 by 4 strips. Further 'ariety may be achieved by build- ng a series of decks on different evels, each devoted to a partic- lar activity. of our more hardy types to produce yet new plants for our gardens. This business of crossing your own Rhododendrons and produc- ng your own hybrids is.npl . as silly as it sounds. All you have to do to start is do what the bees do naturally: pollinate the flower of one parent with the pollen of the other.
