That's when there's a concrete job to be done- anchoring a. clothes pole, laying a bit ol sidewalk, building a few steps, or lining a fish pool. It's the nix lliat determines the strength, durability and .watertigfit- ness of any concrete job. Concrete is one of the most interesting of all building materials. It really is one case ol man improving upon nature. Soil experts say nature is continually breaking down rock into soil— through erosion and disintegration— and at the same lime continually building u|> new rock with soil— through pressure and chemical action on hardpan, etc. In concrete, man builds his own rock with soil and water, and decs it in a Jiffy. The quality of hU product depends entirely on the materials he uses and the way he mixes them. with quality- only clean sand, clean water and clean gravel. Sand must be Iree of loam and vegetable matter. Tlie water should ne good enough to drink. The gravel, crushed stone, cr other coarse aggregate, cannot contain junk that will crumble and cause weak pockets. ™T USED TO BE that a formula, expressed as 1:2:3. or 1:2:4—mean- Ing 1 part of Portland cement lo 2 parts ol sand and 3 or 4 parts ol pebbles or crushed stone—was depended, upon for a gcod mix. But the discovery of the importance of water In the mix has brought new rules. When water Is added U> port- land cement, a chemical reaction Is «et up. This reaction is vital to the "set," or hardening of the concrete. Too much water, or not enough, can ipoll the Job. And concrete for different purposes calls for different • mounts of water. While A'l:2:3 mix (using one sack of portland cement) with 6 gallons o( water will stand for a good average mbc for small jobs around the house, that amount of water presupposes absolutely dry sand anc gravel. However, sand usually used on a concrete job is rarely dry. It Is commonly rated as wet santl. This means it may contain a half-gallon of wat«r lor every cubic foot. . Therefore, if you do not actually test sand for moisture content, the saiest procedure is to add only 5 or att gallons of water to a 1:2:3 mix until it is plastic and -workable, that way you'll have 6 gallons ly blended, pile U and form a crater in the middle. Arid half che '•• water and mix the dry materials into the water. Gradually add as much of the remaining water as you need to get a workable paste. Too much water weakens concrete. If you'll follow the rules, you'll) have a job that will outlast your j life and many more. The acqua- ' ducts of the Remans offer examples of concrete structures in excellent preservation. cost of $1,000. .. Real Estate Transfers Magnolia Courts, Inc.. to James A. and Dorothy Piny on.

The iicwschart above, based on data from the National Industrial Conference Board and the 1&50 census shows how much U. S. homes have been improved by addition of modern facilities in the past ten years. ^Last year's census shows almost every home with electric lights and radios, four out if five have mechanical refrigeration, and three out of four have bathing and toilet facilities in the house. All showed big Improvements over 1940. Noteworthy, too, is the fact that homeowners now exceed renters for the first time since the census began taking such Information in 1830.
