PACT MX (ARTC.V COURIER NEWS TUE'SDAT, NOVEMBER, «, Homes Should Be Modernized For Safety's Sake Main Object Is To Comfort, Safe-Guard Home-Owner's Family It's smart to modernize your home Tor fire safety whenever, you tackle a remodeling job. This 'isn't »o much of a business proposition, of protecting your Investment — since part of it will be covered by Insurance—but it Is mainly a measure for the comfort and safety ol you and your family. One point to watch is electric wiring. More and more electrical appliances are used In households these days, adding greater burdens to electric circuits. An average house built as recently as fiv«7 years ago will no 1 have adequate wiring for many o: the high-powered appliances, etec- - trie ranges, and food-freezers which need special power circuits. Electrician's Advice Urg •• Get an electrician's advice. sure all installations are cordance with the National Elc//- trlcal Code. Check up on your fuses. ' Discard any that are rated heavier than 15 amperes, sufficient for ordinary home use. The fuse Is designed to be the weakest, point of your wiring, to give warning when it blows out that something Is wrong. It Is a safety valve. A heavier fuse In place of one that blows put can pass too much current, allowing a wire to heat without your knowing It. It's a good Idea to Install electric Hghts in closets and storage Jniform Roofs Recommended 3y Engineer No particular kind o! roofing Is best for any particular farm bulld- uncler all circumstances, says J. L. Strahan, member of the American Society of Agricultural En- ^tneers and technical director of .he Asphalt Roofing Industry Bu- •cau. The style of roofing selected for the farmhouse should affect :he choice of roofing for all otf:icr buildings, large or small, which are grouped together in the same farmstead," Mr, Strahan explains. "Uniformity of appearance is highly Important for buildings In a group. Location Determines For instance, R poultry laying house or machine storage shed located near the farm house or other major buildings will rlgluly call for an asphalt shingle roof which conforms architecturally to the larger structures, while roll roofing might be (]Uite suitable if the building Is In an Isolated location." The agricultural engineer calls attention to the usefulness of color In enhancing the appearance of farm buildings. Real Estate Transfers H.

The sealer comprises bakelite varnish, butyral resin and alcohol and Ls being manufactured by more than 50 paint »nd varnish , firms. Metal furniture, which rapidly Is hiding its wny Into almost every possible type of Interior, has cer- ain qualities which mnke it the deal choice wherever the situa- ,ion demands durability us well as jood looks and smart styling. Always popular In the home, either in dinettes, on terraces, In the yard or, lately In the living room, metal urniture's greatest use is in rooms where chairs must take a lot of use and abuse. That's one reason why you find so much steel furniture in offices, -restaurants, shops, even on military posts, where durability gets prime consideration, above all other factors. Beauty, Strength Combined The strong steel which goes into metal furniture usually is plated with chrome or with colorful baked enamel finishes. The outer beauty, plus, the Inward strength, makes these chairs and settees ideaJ for interiors where a lot of traffic can be expected, but where attractive appearance and design are still quite important. A great deal of metal furniture is found on military installations Naturally, the long life of meta furniture is what's important there But you also find the same pieces of equipment in the smarter shops where styling gets preference over durability. Tlie answer is, of course, that well-designed metal furniture will find a home just about anywhere. It blends in with the most luxurious settings. The new square tubed chrome furniture is especially harmonious in modern scenes, for it reflects the clean lines and simple structure that is typical of better design today. Anything as versatile as good metal furniture, which combines smartness with good appearance and prnc- tlcnl utility. Is bound to be In style, at east in any Interior. Oak Floor Specialists Frown on Soap, Water Oak floors, famed for their matchless beauty, show to best advantage when they are properly cleaned and waxed. Floor maintenance specialists disapprove of using soap and water for cleaning. Such treatment, If repealed frequently, may mar the finish, raise the ( grain of the wood and cause a rough surface. Special wax-base preparations which "dry clean" the floor are recommended. Jim and Mary Harry to R. E. Shaw, platted Irregular Lot 5 in SE'A of Section 9-15N-HE. S2.45Q. J. F... jr., and Mary K.
