Eight THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Sunday Morning, August 31,1952. Penny's Small Homes By PENNY HAZELL Today I think I had better leave Ihe SMALL out of PENNY'S SMALL HOMES. I am really doing something that has been agains' my principles ever since I created my column. But honest, it is by popular request Believe it or not, there are gobs of people who wanl a Mansion in the country and they just can't understand why I harp all the time about conservation oi space and economy. So for those fortunate people Who Can Build a home of this type (and believe me, I speak with a tinge of envy in my voice) well, here is my recommendation for said-mansion. One set of blueprints stashed away for dreaming purposes might be a good incentive — think I'll try it. l> First, the home is all made of sturdy brick with white wood used for the brightening trims. As we all seem to prefer ranch types (generally speaking) the house lies close to the ground in a pleasantly placid sort of fashion. The two car garage is, of course, attached to the house itself. But with all there is to discuss on Jhe interior, we'll waste precious little time on the outside even though all of us. can appreciate 'the appearance. Of course, the entry hall (a must, y'know) has a small coat closet It is conveniently to the right of the door. Then we enter a small hall that Come with me through the kitchen to the long house in too. Again B. P. R. (meaning by popular request) we find a new mem- Winchester nor* Noll. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Bolinger went to Arkansas Tuesday to move their ^household goods. Paul is employed here by Pete Weber. Rev. Paul Everett and family have left for Berkley, Calif, where Paul will attend the Golden Gate Seminar.He will be there about three years to finish his pastorial work. Paul is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Everett of Winchester. Word was received here Monday that Mrs. Philomena Noll suffered a stroke at her home in Leavenworth. She is the widow of the late John Noll and formerly lived here. A.T. Noll, August Noll and Norbert Noll of Mooney Creek are her sons. Miss Lonie Noll is quite ill at her home in Nortonville, suffering with asthma. Jimmy Daniels, Mary Ida Goss, Raymond and Marilyn Riddle and Boyd Brooks are in Topeka attending the George Truitt Association Camp this week. They are representatives from the Hebron church east of Winchester. The Winchester ball team defeat- ber — the sewing room. Of course ed Moon ey Creek Sunday afternoon this can serve in several ways, but on the Mooney Creek diamond. for the nonce, it's a sewing room Next comes the extra lavatorj and beside that is the den or pos sible third bedroom.- By usini studio couches this can act as bot! with no difficulty. The sewini room has a closet of its own a does the den, so you see how adaptable the two of them can be The back bedroom has two sep arate closets and cross ventilation There is the major bedroom nex to it and another storage closet in the hall. Then comes the front bedroom and its double wardrobe. Here we find THREE windows. All right! all right, I'll tell you about that stairway in the living room... I knew your curiosity would be j'our undoing. Honestly, it leads and can the recreation room used for guests. No acts as a channel to almost all of the house itself. There is a passage to the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and besides all this, there is another closet for the overflow from the first. The living room is very large and there is a magnificent fire- placa. right in the center. On one side will be the bookcase with built-in storage space beneath. A grand place to hide your favorite Dickens and R. L. Stephenson stories that look so shabby on the shelf. Now, don't ask about the steps eading down beside the fireplace. [f I tell you about 'em now I'll )e getting the Cart before the florse. Instead let us look at the dining room. It has a large sized window in front and there is a door .hat leads to the kitchen. But — and this is by special request from a reader — you must pass an OLD FASHIONED PANTRY TO G E T THERE. Yep, it is just like the and that we found in Grandma's louse. Can't deny it is mighty landy for china, sEver, and glass storage. The kitchen has a divine little nook all surrounded by glass for if or $1.00; Portfolio No. 2 contains need to take them through the furnace and laundry section at all. In a house with too many men, these spots can be mighty untidy. Wei', whether you can afford it or not, it is a grand idea, don't you agree? Oh, heck, now, I'm all nostaligic over guest steps to the Dlay room and probably won't eat any dinner as I should. If you'd like complete building Blueprints of this lovely home, including a specification sheet, they are available at ?5.00 for the first set and $3.50 for each additional set of the same number. Portfolio \o. 1 that contains the first 60 designs in my series is available the informal dining moments. And off that is the stairway leading to he basement that for a change is brightly lighted with glass block vindows above. There is also a door to the garage. No wet feet for 'op this winter. the second 60 designs and is also $1.00. Please specify Portfolio Number! when ordering. Just send your check or money order io Penny's Small Homes, Box 1055, Berkley, Mich. Please allow at least two weeks for delivery. For Good La\vn Set Cutting Bar Up on Mower By HENRY FREE Experience, plus years of observation have taught the old gardener that important mowing practices are common causes for unhappy lawns. Many summer lawn troubles may be avoided by not cutting close and by watering well during dry weather. Despite our yearly advice that grass be allowed to grow during hot weather, most folks keep the cutting bar on the mower set so low that cuts only about a half inch above the grounds. Grass at this season should be at least an inch-and-a-half tall. Two inches is better. Creeping bent should be cut an inch—no less. Early summer feeding should be practiced, for strong, properly fed grass can withstand drouth. Grass is not self-supporting. If it is really to amount to something, it must be fed, like you and me. "The Science of Mowing," by O. M. Scott, tells us that, like other living plants, grass is a factory that takes up food and transforms it into energy. The green blades play a vital part in this transformation. How can grass thrive if its normal functioning is crippled by close cropping? Continued removal of its foliage •will eventually starve any plant Close mowing has the same strangling effect on grass. Yet if mow-j ing is neglected the grass becomes tall and spindly in an effort to reach the light It forms a thinj week covering instead of a thick! sod. ! Lawns maintained at the longer' length provide a uniform color.! Contrast this with the closely; clipped lawn where most of the! green blades have been removed. The yellowish stems are then ex-; posed and the lawn takes on a; parched and hungry appearanceJ Taller grass also improves a lawn by minimizing the presence of weeds. It also prevents weeds, from overgrowing the desirable! grass and smothering everything! beneaih them. ; : There is a definite relationship between the grass growth above! ground and that below ground. A 1 longer topgrowth results in a more i extensive root system. Such a root 1 system is much to be desired be-j cause it is capable of reaching: more moisture more food. and absorbing Cutting grass every fe\V days does no harm providing the height of cut is correct Nevertheless, it is better to adopt a mowing schedule regulated by the amount o f growth made, rather than by the calendar. Instead of mowing each Saturday, mow whenever the growth is one inch taller than last cut. This will be more often during the moist growing season and less often during hot, dry weather. capture of a 'possum on the steps of a local hotel.
