' ff 1 1 EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 16 · 1937 SOFTENERS NOW CAN BE BOUGHT WITH FHA FUNDS Reduce Corrosion, Clogging to Minimum by Modern Equipment. Over a large area of the country both public and private water- supply contains an amount of mineral content often enough to make the water "hard,"' as it is commonly called. This water condition is undesirable because of its clogging and corrosive action on plumbing lines, heating plants, and cooking utensils. In addition to that, difficulty is experienced in laundering and washing of all types, because it is hard to make soapsuds with such water, and undesirable deposits are formed by Ihe chemical reactions . taking place between the soap and the mineral in the water. As a result of this widespread condition, a number of firms are producing water-softening equipment which, by filtration and chemical action, neutralizes or deposits out the mineral content, leaving the water soft and reducing to a 'minimum clogging or corrosion in plumbing and heating equipment.'. Such water-softening equipment is manufactured by a number of firms who will make an analysis of the water to be treated and upon that basis recommend the type and size of equipment which will be most satisfactory. It may be purchased under the modernization credit plan of the Federal Housing administration both for homes and business properties when it is installed as a permanent part of the plumbing system. Most water-softening equipment is designed for connection into the main water-supply line so that all water used within the house is treated. At times only the domestic hot-water supply is softened, and now small portable softeners are available which can be connected to any individual faucet and provide a sufficient quantity of softened ..water for washing arposes/-^ -^.. ; -~:...,'.-.--..,,' .

Of course, to realize these major benefits the equipment should be so installed that all water used in the house is treated in accordance with the manufacturers' recommendations. DISPELL CARES Selected Tints Utilize All of Suns Rays on Dull ·Wintry Days. / Color may be used advantageously to combat the darkness of wintry days. : Carefully selected tints tend to utilize and reflect every ray of sunshine that enters and give the impression of sunshine e v e n though the weather outside may be gloomy and gray. Pale yellow walls and wood- vork, yellow-orange draperies, slue and green tones on painted urniture, brightly enameled con- ainers for growing plants form combination which promotes a heerful atmosphere and gives the effect of an indoor garden where he sun is constantly shining. Credit is advanced by private inancial institutions insured by he Federal Housing Administration for modernization purposes Porches may be converted into sunrooms successfully at small expense. Beauty Comes in Packages Modern beauty for the bathroom now comes in packages. It is a brand, now idea, and has recently made its appearance in Ihc smartest New York stores.

WASHINGTON, D. C.--The subject of how much it costs to furnish a home invariably arouses diverse opinions and heated discussion, but it is always of interest to those who have had or are about to have that interesting experience. Three representative department stores in Washington were consulted by the Federal Housing administration regarding this matter of moment and asked whether $500 would cover the expense of furnishing a five or six-room house. One firm declared that a shopper with a fair knowledge of home furnishings and with careful buying, particularly during furniture sales, could purchase furniture essentials with $500. Higher Average The' second store claimed that S750 would not only buy furniture necessities but provide a~ limited number of lamps, rugs, and su icient china and glassware for th nitial housekeeping. The third department store in sisted that 51,000 would barely cover the absolute necessities re- Sunday at Local Churches y THE GOLDEN TEXT: John 4: 14--"Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst." quired in home furnishings and would mean a sparsely furnished house and a very narrow choice of tables and other requirements to make a home attractive and comfortable. ' While furnishings and furniture cannot be purchased under the program of the Federal Housing administration, a strong demand for these items is created through home construction and modernization.

Phone 977 Much depends upon the location of the home to be furnished, the firms with whom business is done, the selection and discrimination of the purchaser. Wise Buying Stressed Frequently thousands of dollars are spent on making homes or apartments attractive and the finished result is not half as effective as those on which a few hundreds have been used. All three firms consulted stressed the importance of buying substantial, well-made pieces, even if a longer time was needed to bring the number to the requisite amount. Shoddy pieces, they explained, quicUly showed signs of wear, while good woods improved with care, and well-woven rugs and curtains withstood the ravages of time and many cleanings. Permanent Furniture The prospective owners of homes being purchased under the insured mortgage system of the Federal Housing administration plan to live in them indefinitely and have the advantage of studying their surroundings and making a decision regarding just the right piece for the right place in their homes, taking months, if necessary, to make the choice. A few beautiful well-chosen pieces of furniture add beauty and distinction to the home, and their Acquisition dnes not always represent larger amount*; of money spent but rather good taste on the part of the purchaser.

The use of cheap and poorly made, exposed extension wiring in the home is to be avoided at all times, because it is considered one of the greatest fire hazards we With several safe types of surface extension wiring now on the market -which are both inexpensive and easy to install, there is no longer any excuse for the use of cheap light cord for extension wiring in rooms where there are insufficient outlets. The safest thing to do is to consult an expert electrician. New wiring may be installed under the Modernization Credit Plan of the Federal Housing Administration. Before installing any exposed extension wiring, the electric outlet from which extension wiring is to extend should be carefully inspected in order to make sure that all connections are tight and that the outlet and the house-wiring circuit to which it is connected are of sufficient capacity to carry the extra load of the extension wiring. ' If alt is in good order, then a selection of the type of extension wiring can be made. Several types are available in which wires are completely encased in a flat rubber or composition strip of good insulating quality which may be rigidly attached to the wall. These strip-wiring systems all have special fittings for outlets: splices, crosses, and other connections. In order to be sure of their safety, it is advisable to purchase only materials having the inspection label of the Underwriters Laboratories and in no case to provide more than two outlets from any one ex.- tension from a built-in outlet. s o u t h e a s t . 8:45 a.
