A: An open garage door offers a large surface to the wind, and, If strong enough, the wind will rip the screws out, of almost any door that stands open. The installation of doors that slide up overhead In the garage would solve your problem. Or, if you do not want to go to this expense, you can sink posts well into Ihc ground so that the doors may be hooked to them when they are opened. This is only a precaution and would not be a pos- this condition in a new home we are planning. A. Without knowing the conditions, it Is hard to say where the moisture comes from, but the sweating is caused by-an excess of moisture In the house which condenses when it strikes the cold window panes. If there Is a humidifier In, the . heating system, too much inoisture is being released. Cjit' down the supply until only a little moisture appears on the windows In the coldest weather. It may he necessary to adjust this from time to .lime to lake care of changing conditions. If there is no-humidifier, then you must search elsewhere for. the source of. the moisture.

Tulfbs, graduate of William Jewell College, Liberty, Mo., was a successful high school coach in Superior, Wis., before goina-to Miami • Q. Our house is about a year and a half old, and the plaster around the ciiimncy .has cracked - quite badly. The chimney seems to have risen, as the hearth of the fireplace on the second floor is about a half an inch higher than the floor. What should we do about It? A..The trouble is .probably the shrinkage of the wocd frame of the lioiiise ralhcr than the.rising of t'ne cbhiiney. unless the foundation of the chimney is above the frost line, it is hardly likely that it could rise. All wood frames, however, shrink lo some extent, and when they do where they come in contact with the masonry chimney that does not shrink something must give, and this ' is usually the plaster. The framing should be quite Indcpencl-1 cut of the chimney, but evidently j in your house, it is not. The only tiling you can do is wnil until the cracks seem lo liavc reached a stage where they are not getting any larger and then have them cut out and filled.

These iron butts are well made and • quite inexpensive and. in the opinion of some authorities, look even better than lhe more conspicuous brass ones. For interior doors there are lock sets that require no keys," and while these are slightly more expensive than the ordinary type, ihev require less labor to, install, and where skilled labor is high they are no. more expensive in; pluce than the usual type toeks.', 'Ihey can be locked and unlocked by pressing a button in the center of the handle.
