MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Tailormade Installation at Show Pauley Will Demonstrate Duct Work The value of iailormade installations will be stressed by the Hay E. Pauley company, 425 South Federal avenue, at the North Iowa building and furnishings show in the high school gymnasium Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The Ray E. Pauley company, dealer in air conditioning, Lennox heating equipment, refrigeration, warm air heating and sheet metal work, has been specializing in making heating ducts and pipes to fit the home. All the work is done by a highly trained crew of men and the ducts are constructed in the company's shop. Ray E. Pauley, president of the company, plans to demonstrate at the show how the tailormade work is done and the advantage of having ducts made to fit the home. Will Demonstrate Work The new 1939 Lennox gas Aire-Flo heating unit also will be featured by the company at the annual show. The unit itself is clean, neat looking and compact with all machinery inclosed The silent blower drives warm and conditioned air to every room where it is discharged through inconspicuous grilles. Cold air is sucked in at the floor level and returned to the unit of reconditioning. Filters in the unit remove dust, dirt,.pollens and dust borne germs thus relieving hay fever sufferers. Enough air is circulated and. recirculated by the silent blower to cause one complete air change every 12 minutes throughout the house. Will Show Hi-Boy The Ray K Pauley company also will show the new Hi-Boy gas Aire-Flo heating unit which is designed for small houses without basement. The unit works on the same principle as its larger brother, the gas Aire- Flo, except that it can be used without ducts when installed on the first floor of the house. The unit is neat, compact and silent. The Hi-Boy also'is ideal for small homes and when installed in the basement, ducts can easily be attached. Furnaces handled by the Ray E. Pauley company are going strong for streamlining this year and almost each new shipment brings an added attachment that adds to the appearance and usefulness of the furnace. Auburn stokers also are handled by the company. · BUILT-IN SHELF GOOD A built-in telephone shelf provides one solution for the cramped hallways in small homes. Artistically Adequate Here is a" pleasant cottage suitable for the first new home--for use as a guest cottage on the larger estate--or making an ideal home for the elderly couple who wish to have pleasant surroundings and a minimum of work in the matter of up-keep. The living room has the added feature of the pleasant bay window. There is a separate dinette, and a kitchen with ample space for sink, stove, and refrigerator. Two bedrooms, with a closet each, and a bath adjacent complete the floor plan. The house is developed in white clapboards and has a dark green shingle roof. The porch has^the decorative touch of the lattice trim in connection with the front pillars. A ' ground planting also adds to the pleasant appearance of the home. A house of this kind is most economical to build. It meets with all standards of light, air and sanitation.

Phone 162 Subsidies Encouraging to Ownership NEW YORK--Housing subsidies should encourage private home ownership rather than rent paying, declared Joseph B/ Mason, eastern editor of American Builder, in announcing an editorial campaign to "make low- cost home ownership a practical "lality." The same subsidies now being paid to large-scale public housing projects would enable 'ill-housed" persons to own jmall homes built and financed by private industry, he declared. "If housing subsidies must be paid, let's place them where they will make better citizens. Do we want a nation of rent-paying smoebas huddled in huge public- jwned housing projects, or a nation of vigorous citizens living in their own private homes, supporting their local communities and taking an active part in them?" he asked. Homes Cost Less Quoting facts from an editorial in the April American Builder, advance copies of which are being sent to congressmen," prominent builders and housing organizations, Mr. Mason pointed out that under the present TJ. S. Housing Authority program the following help is extended: 1. A 90 per cent loan running for 60 years is granted by the federal government. 2. A 10 per cent loan is advanced by the local housing authority. 3. An annual subsidy of 3% per cent of the total cost is paid by the federal government each year for 60 years. 4. Exemption from local real estate taxes is granted. "That is subsidy in a big way," he said. "We are prepared to demonstrate that private builders with far less help could provide better houses at less cost, both to the occupants and to the taxpayers," Would Pay Local Taxes "Let us illustrate with a $4,00b house and lot, at which price a good house can be built and sold anywhere in the country close to cheap transportation. "The monthly amortization and interest payment (at 5 per cent) on a 25-year loan of this amount is approximately $24-which is too much for the 'ill- housed one-third.' But if they were helped with the same 3%' per cent annual subsidy granted by the U, S. H. A., the monthly cost would be reduced $12.50. So a $4,000 house would, cost only SI 1.50 a month!" At that price, Mason pointed^ out, the low-income buyer couldi' afford to pay at least a part o£' local real estate taxes. With thej addition of fuel and upkeep ex-'" penses, the monthly cost would still be far less than he would have to pay for rent in the large- scale public housing^ projects which, fay their nature lind location, are most expensive to build. Living Room Should Be Largest Room in Modem House The living room should be the largest room in the home, because it is the meeting place of the family group and visitors, according to federal housing administration officials. The size of a living room will vary with the size of the house, the size and circumstances of the family, and the contemplated use of the room. Adequate exposure to sunlight and attractive views should be taken into consideration in planning the living room, and it should be conveniently accessible to other rooms. f 'II Damage From Snow Lessened by Guards Snow guards, small irons that i are secured to the roof, often' ; serve the double duty o£ being ', ornamental as well as prevent- 1 ing property damage from slid- / ing snow. Most snow guards ' ] are easily applied and can be used on either metal or slate roofs. On metal roofs the irons ' are riveted to the roofing or ; nailed through to the sheathing. Those used on slate roofs are? riveted on iron plates which go : under the slate.
