Roof temperatures, often reach 140-150 degrees, vast amounts of this superheat penetrating to the living quarters; and the summer- long Bureau of Standards tests were designed to determine how this could be avoided. On an August afternoon when outside air temperature was 93 degrees, the underside of the roof tested by the Bureau was 138 degrees; air in the attic was 130. Almost half of this superheated air penetrated the uninsulated ceiling into the room below and thermometers there showed '106 degrees or 13 degrees hotter than outside air. Insulation Is Answer One part of the ceiling was insulated with full-thick b.itts of mineral wool and one portion of the ceiling had no insulation. Ceiling temperature where there was no insulation was 106,2 degrees, but the veiling beneath the mineral wool was onlv 90.8 degrees or more than 1*0 degrees cooler than out- Reol Estate Transfers (Chlekaaawlu Dl.lrltt) Dr. E.

Redecorating Plans Should Include Floors Don't overlook the floors in your house cleaning or redecorating plans, home maintenance experts advise. They point out that since the floor Is such » prominent part of a room, its condition determines in large measure the degree of room attractiveness. If your floors are of hardwood they can be restored to their full beauty by reconditioning even though neglected for many years. the experts say. That Is one reason they add, why oak and other flooring hardwoods are utilized so extensively in homes. Oak. for example, Is used more than all other residential flooring materials combined. Most companies specializing In floor reconditioning perform a thorough. speedy job at moderate cost. A home owner who Is "handy," however, can do the work himself. The task Is relatively simple when sanding and polishing are done with electric machines, which usually can be rented at nominal rates from a floor sanding company or a hardware dealer. In addition to a large sander for the general floor area It Is advisable to obtain an "edger," a small hand sander, for use near walls and In small closets. A polisher can be adapted both for buffing and polishing. Three sandlngs generally are recommended. The first, with coarse sandpaper, removes the old finish. The next two, with progressively finer paper, eliminate scratches tlid spots and smooth the surface. If floor seal is selected as a finish, It can be applied easily from a standing position with a long-handled applicator. Some rloor seals contain wood filler, when these are Johnston and Mlldren Bryan to Korrls Ann Patterson, 50 acres in Section 2-UN-tE, $1 and other con slderatlon. E. B. and Rovene C.
