IOWA Insomnia apparently was no problem during the middle Ages. Then the popular medical cure was to have your head shaved, be bled to an anemic white, and gorge yourself on a mixture of wild carrot, parsley and peony seeds. The treatment must have worked—at least there are no records that anyone came back for seconds. Just how imDortant is sleep to your body? You can't survive without it, says the Iowa State Department of Health. In fact, tests indicate it's even more important to your body than food. A group of laboratory animals lived twenty days without food or water. Another group died after only five days without sleep. About eight hours of sleep a night is recommended, although you may need more or less. Tests have given us pretty conclusive evidence that we sleep to rest our brain, not our body. So if you're involved in strenuous mental activity you may need to sleep longer. However the fact that you can stay dead to the world for ten hours at a stretch doesn't mean you have to. Vary the length of your sleep for several days at a time and see how efficiently you operate. By eliminating just one hour of needless sleep every night, you'll add about three years of conscious activity over the average life span. There are hundreds of tips and gimmicks and gadgets that are supposed to bring sleep. You'll have to find what works best for you. The key to sound sleep is the ability to relax—both mind and muscles. A comfortable bed with enough fresh bedding to keep you warm, a dark, quiet room and good ventilation are important. A warm bath may relax you after a hard day; drinking some warm milk may help. Sleeping pills aren't the answer. Only a physician can help you find the cause of sleeplessness. See him if you're bothered by persistent insomnia. ONE-HUNDRED-FIVE Mrs. Mamie Chase of Belmond recently celebrated her 105th birthday. Mrs. Chase still crochets as a pastime and helps around the house all she is permitted to help. AMBULANCE SERVICE The unique ambulance service at State University of Iowa Hospitals transported 22,403 patients during the 1959-60 academic year. They included patients from "all 99 counties. Iowa City - " y« ™ market for a house, you 11 be wise to look for one in a neighborhood that is generally attractive in appearance. Such a house will give you more pleasure while you live in it and will "sell better." What should a good residential area look like? Each house in a residential community can be "individual" and vet harmoniously complement surrounding homes, says Frank Sm- berling, professor and head of the art department at The State University of Iowa. Adjacent houses along one street ...ay vary greatly in age, but still have sim'ilarities which can produce an agreeable community effect. For example, they may all be made of the same materials and be two stories high, with irregularities in design appearing in the form of porch projections, gables or wings. Dwellings do not have to be closely similar to achieve harmony in appearance—they need only certain common resemblances and some individual character, Dr. Sei bcrling points out. Planned relatedness of houses in the same community is not always appealing, says the SUI professor. Suburban developments with a modernized version of the Cape Cod cottage, for example, are trim and orderly, but generally lack distinction. Lots arc usually too narrow to provide any restful interval between architectural masses. The modernized Cape Cod house, lacking the simple craftsmanship of its prototype, often shows no dynamic ability in its design, no expressiveness. Dr. Seiberling explains. It is too likely to be n stamped-out adaptation of a commercial package without distinction of shape, trim or use of materials. Many of the current "split-level" and "rambler" designs also produce "routine" results. Dr. Seiberling notes. Fashionable suburbs of some Iowa cities have gone to the opposite extreme in an effort to achieve individuality, resulting in neighborhoods where nearly every house is from a different' period style. Sometimes two of a kind are neighbors, but not often. The results can be very disjointed, cor rupting any pleasant community of architecture. Dr. Seiberling points out. All to seldom is any provision made for developing an area's potential by planned landscaping, the SUI professor says. A house should be oriented to any topographical advantages of its particular lot and should be located to minimize the presence of neighboring houses. Town landscaping, planning and zoning arc essential in developing pleasantly designed subdivisions. Dr. Seiberling explains. Street landscaping makes a contribution through the presence of stately trees in some communities. Without residential zoning, a filling station or store at the corner may someday spoil the charm of your home area. So check zoning regulations before you buy. Prefabricated and mass-produced houses have made very slow gains says Dr. Seiberling. Yet they un­ doubtedly hold the potential for very substantial savings, he says. In prefabrication, the manufacturer makes all or sections of a house at a central point of production. Door and window frames, kitchen cabinets, fireplace units, and even walls, are examples of prefabricated items. The numerous manufacturers of prefabricated houses offer a variety] of styles to the potential home' owner. Consequently prefabricated houses in one community need not lack individuality if owners choose their house designs carefully. Seiberling predicts that in the not-too-distant future a person may no more think of buying an individually designed house than he would think of looking for an automobile with a specially designed body. Already there are mass- produced subdivisions which offer more square footage for the dollar than a person could obtain by building a house himself.

Water your plants with moderately warm water and keep them out of cold drafts. Shurtleff says. Shoot blight and bud rot appear when plants are chilled or wet frequently and not properly ventila ted. The cure: Expose the plants to moderately warm temperature with better light and ventilation. Dont splash water over the foliage when you water your plants Shurtleff says this can lead to Jeaf spots caused by fungi, bacteria or nematodes. After you water the plants, set them in a well-lighted and ventilated place. This insures prompt drying of any wet leaves.
