This demand is being answerc by manufacturers and their re ail dealers as witnessed by Hi nany products now reaching mar kct. Typical are popular all-hard vood wall panelings that have ; permanent factory finish whicl can be applied as easily as wall apcr. They cost no more tha nany of the fabrics housewive .ire buying for next season's ne\ party dress.

And, the room is ready le minute the new walls have een cemented or nailed into lace (colored putty sticks an urnished to match each type o] vood, so nail holes disappear with flick of the wrist) A wide choice of woods help end individuality to d i f f e r e n t ooms. Result that such new pan ling as natural Pecan, once lought too tough to slice for eneers, as well as such inter- sting woods as Black Walnut, .merican Cherry, Brown Elm, ilond Oak, Honeytone Oak, Flame un, Adirondack Birch, Greymisl sh, American Elm and Antique Urn are now available. "Exotic" Imports Another aspect to the "new jok" in materials is the availably of top quality "exotic" im- orts. A bamboo plywood was re- ently imported by the Georgia- acific Corporation from Japan. Ithough it does not have the amily proof" finish of Georgia acific's native American hard- ood paneling, it is proving high- popular for a single wall or for itire rooms where something dif- rent is desired. According to the National Bel- ter Heating-Cooling Council, homeowners are often forced to replace their healing plant wilh one that has a larger heat output when a new room is added to the home. These home-owners who have already installed a hydronic (hot water h e a t i n g ) boiler usually aren't affected. Hydronic boilers are usually installed with enough additional heating capacity to heat a new room addition without effecting overall heating efficiency. Termites 4 * * Damage Mounts Although blind and brainless, the termite is an engineering genius. This migrant, pin-sized insect is so shrewd that man's most modern construction practices fail to rutlt his attacks on wood and other cellulose material used n building. The termite seeks out wood and infests it; probing through the ground to penetrate the most minute of foundation cracks. Despite increased use of cements and metal in foundation construction, termite damage continues to climb. Losses by termite damage are second only ,o fire losses -- amounting to 250 million dollars a year, more than ^685,000 a day, according to fig- ires released by E. L. Bruce Co., sponsor of the Bruce-Terminex .ermitc control program. Many mistakenly believe that a slab foundation can protect a louse from termites. Far from being free from termites, houses vith slab construction are often ermile traps, making control difficult and expensive. However termite control prob- ems can be reduced by a few minor construction details when a house is being built or exten- ivcly remodeled by proper ven- ilation, proper drainage, ade- COPIED AUTHENTICALLY from historic plank floors of Earl) America, Ranch Plank provides fashionable footnotes to dens family rooms and living rooms.
