Last winte./shortages of| fuel oil In various sections of the country caused the principal hardship; now the possibility of a coal, shortage next winter must be reckoned with. This possibility, indeed, was looming even before (lie strike, the full effect of which on the supplies of ial for home healing cannot be assessed at this time. It ;is certain however, that supplies of all fuels for home healing will be on the. lean side next winter, biciutse of the Increased demands of induslry and llic expanding .war fronts. For that reason -it is all the more imperative that librae owners take the necessary steps this summer -to insulate Jiomes against n'xl winter's coldVnaps , If is surprising how; effective even a minimum of insulation can be, such as the lacking of felt' weather-stripping around door alul window frames. Of course, the more complete the job Is, the more heal will be" retained and .Hie less fuel burned. Loans as high as $2.500 from llic FHA can be obtained to finance the job of. insulating, as well as converting" from oil to coal-burning heaters, wherever- this is possible. One thing practically everyone can <to: to conserve fuel is remember to draw this window shades with which most homes are equipped The shades, acting as an insulator, effectively cut Hie high rale of heat loss through window panes, thereby reducing fuel required for heating purposes by as much as ten per cent, on the average. 'Ilic rules are simple. Draw shades to. the bill in all rooms at night, hall-way to the sill in rooms being usttl during the day and all the way down in rooms not being occupied.
