TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, BIiYTHEVIUiE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREH BETTER HOMES Lumber for Repair Given Only In Case of Extreme Emergency State Director W. S. Daniel of thc Federal Housing Adininislration announced today that during the present BITIVO emergency in thc lumber Industry, Ids office at the direction of the WPB would give preference ratings to home owners needing lumber for repair work only in extreme emergency cases.' The FHA office acts us iiuciit of Hie WPH in processing preference ratings for critical building materials. The announcement was made because of the thousands of home owners who are flooding the field olficcs of the WPB and the FI1A throughout (he country with applications for preference ratings to get lumber for emergency home repairs, while only a comparative few can hope to get the lumber they want. In general, emergency ratings for lumlwr arc justified when a house is rendered unlit for continued occupancy through damage caused by fire, flood, tornado, earthquake, storm or similar catastrophe. Kx- inuples of such damage are: leaks in roofs, weakening of the frame- work, separation of lateral supports from the main supiioits of thc structure, broken joists or risers. DeU'rioralion of lumber because of wear and lear will not be r.onsid- an emergency need for lumber if thc pails to be replaced will func- lion without repair for at least another throe months,'Mr. Daniel said. Applications for emergency ratings to obtain lumber for extreme emergency repairs should be made to Die FI1A office on Form Wl'13-2896, which can be obtained at tlinl of- lice. They must show that the extent of the damage is such that (lie dwelling is unlit for use unless rc- 1) aired, Mr, Daniel urged homo owners lo refrain from attempting to gel ratings for any but Hie most essential emergency lumber needs. Direct and indirect military requirements for lumber are so high, and lotal essential lumber demand so far In excess of supply, that all unnecessary use of lumber must be curtailed, Mr. Daniel said. Invest In Rest By Purchasing Quality Bedding "Invest In Rest" is the advice of sleep authorities and interior decorators to home makers who are planning lo furnish a bedroom or replace sleep equipment. Rationing and shortages have taught Amcrl- KTthat they can get along witli- S. a great many things formerly considered necessities, but refreshing sleep is vital and they, can't gel along without'it. Nor do they have to. So-called "Victory" bedding merchandise Is no longer being made, and high quality sleep equipment is again available. Since the consumer gets what she pays for, and restful sleep is more important than ever, a tedding purchase is not Die place to economize. An inexpensive bcdspring or bo.v- spring gives less support and its span of service is shorter than a higher priced one. In metal bedsprings, those with "double-deck coils" (extra long and supported in the middle) which arc tied together with smaH, tightly wound springs called "helicals" arc the best. This allows thc light-weight occupant plenty of resiliency and the deep coils, supported through thc center, easily carry Ihe extra load of heavier occupants. The most comfortable boxspring Is one in which file coils are hand- tied one to another 'and to the foundations with special twine, while thc cheaper models lire tied with wire. ^pdnclion of innerspring mat- t'Jfies has been delayed indcfi- rttlcly by the War Piodiiction Board, but many connoisseurs of sleep er;i;ipment prefer n felted cotton ni.ittress or on/: in v/h;ch staple cotton lias bcti'i vcven into one large batt. Thc lower-priced mattress is usually filled with loose material rather than the longer-fibered cotton arranged iti layers or "felled." which means that it will pack down, lose its resilience more quickly, and become uneven. Home-makers who Reap these facts iti mind when shopping for sleep equipment obtain the r.iost for iheir motley and insure the rest and health ol members of their families. New Home For Seay Motor Co.
