All \\inrtov.5 anri rionrs should be kepi, closed thiouchout the clay and shade? drawn on the sunny side, of the hojjse. Tlnir, when u'inrlows and doors are opened after sunset, the nisht Rir quickly cools the house. Air change can be speeded up by electric funs facing inward in open windows as this sucks fresh air into the house. V.'.ilch Kifehen Temperature Care should be taken against overheating the kitchen Home economists suggest that hot summertime meals be prepared in the oven. Open burners on top of the stove throw o[( tremendous amounts <•! heal, whereas mast ovens are insulated and little heat escapes. Kitchen doors leading to the rest of Ihe house should be closed at mealtime and excess heat (orced out. Ihrough open kitchen windows. Larking an exhaust fan, an ordinary electric man facing outward in an open window will move the air out rapidly. The Construction Research Bureau also suggests leplacing large. electric bulbs with bulbs of lower wattage during summer months because big lamps are a source of considerable heat. Additional coolness can be provided by directing an eletl'ic fan toward a" bowl of ice, and by a damp sheet hung before doors rind windoiv.s. Playhouse Easy To Build, Safer For Youngsters Lack of adequate playground facilities is recognized by authorities as one of the most serious shortcomings of our large cities. Playgrounds where small children ran romp and play in wholesome surroundings are too few and lar between. In many neighborhoods sidewalks and streets offer the only immediate play area's. Everyone appreciates the dangers inherent In such conditions. Some- limes a little ingenuity on the part at parents can do much to improve the situation in Individual families. If there Is sufficient space In the brick yard, for example, it's a Rood Idea to bnilri a playhouse which will serve as a center of operations for the youngsters. An attractive structure can be built easily and Log-less Log Cabins Resist Rot and Decay Something new In using modem materials to achieve primitive ef-1 Joels has been discovered, says' Practical Builder, Chicago 3. If, a realistic log-like exterior /or cabins, homes, lodges, Lonrist courts collages, other rustic buildings, constructed of fire-resistant metal lath- I;IR and cement. Beautiful in finish, yel easy to construct, this new process affords permanent, savings since it requires none of the continual replacements required by normal I log rot and deterioration. j [ Another worthwhile feature of' the finish Is Its self-insulation pro-1 vlded by channels in preformed • metal lathing under the sturdy! cement base-coal, and colored ce-' merit, textured final coating. This constant nlr space keeps the bulld- inff fooler In summer, warmer in winter. Final coating is available in authentic replicas of bark colors in natural tones of grey, brown and off-white. Simulated bark finish resembles birch, pine, oak or walnut, and blends with. uatiTml woodland settings ns tastefully as would actual logs. Log-cabin texture finish can be • pplied to either old or new buildings, and all material Is easily handled and installed. Added feature Is lus immunity to attacks from vermin or rodents which can do plenty damage to a cabin made of tasty and expensive real togs. | economically by applying Insulating j building board over simple frame-1 work of used lumber. The board j which comes in rigid sheets 4 feet' wide and from 1 to 12 feet long is easy to cut and nail.
