ENAMELING STARTED BY EARLY JEWELERS •The art of ceramic enameling, originated by the jewelers craft in. the Middle Ages, has been b'rought to a high peak of perfection by the American plumbing industry, says the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Information Bureau.

S. 24 OLVE YOUR PAINT PROBLEMS WEEDERS GUIDE By EARL ARONSON AP Ncwsfeaturcs THE.ALL AMERICAS of the 1363 rose world are two hybrid teas named Tropicanna and, appropriately enough, Royal High- nets. Tropicanna is a brilliant orange- red rose that already has earned 12 outstanding awards, mostly in. major European competitions, in the past two years. The color' is reportedly extremely durable and (he blooms .abundant on long stems. Royal Highness is a clear, frosty pink, the first pink hybrid lea to win the coveted award of the All America Rose Selections in eight years. It has long, beau- lifully proportioned buds and blooms that measure 5 to 5>/£ inches, across on long stems. Both. Tropicanna and Royal Highness will be available next fall to home gardeners. The judges said both newcomers triumphed over tough competition in the fields of vigorous growth, hardiness, nonfading color, novelty, fragrance and ability to stand wide variations of weather. Both winners owe much of their outstanding qualities to the 1946 prize winner, Peace. Peace won solo AARS honors that year and since then nearly four million bushes have been planted in America alone. Royal Highness was a cross between Peace and Virgo. This makes Peace its father. Trop- icanna claims Peace as a grandfather. It was produced by the cross-pollinizalion of a Peace seedling from a previous breeding and an Alpine Glow seedling. (When two roses are cross-bred, thousands of seedlings, or offspring, may result.) Tropicanna, which is being introduced in this country by Jackson & Perkins, is the result of a 27-year search by a German 'ather and son team of hybridists, Mathias Tantau, Sr. and Jr. The son estimated that at least 100,000 seedlings resulted in the progression that climaxed in Tropicanna. Royal Highness was bom in a r ertile rose field of California. It s / the success story of Herbert Swim, who is responsible for more All-America roses than any other ireeder. Royal Highness, which ie originated with 0. L. Weeks, is lis 12th winner. There is much uncertainty as to the end product of pollination. "When we crossed Virgo and Peace," Swim said, "we saw in our mind's eye a white rose with much of the, characteristics of the All America that is now named Royal Highness. We did not Visualize the exquisite pink daintiness, regal manner and fragrance that we obtained. .-." Swim also was responsible for Duet and Pink Parfait in 1961; Gardein Party in 1960; Circus in 1956, and Mojave in 1954. The elder Tantau made his original crossing' in 1937. The final breeding that brought forth Tropicanna was made by the son in 1955. Tropicanna's flowers are 4J^-5 inches' across arid the plant grows from three feet tall in more temperate areas to five to six feet in warmer climates. / Portable Pools Dot Landscape Side by side with the ever- growing number of excavated pool .installations round the country, are an ever-increasing number of homes with above-ground portable pools. Millions of units of portable pools dot the nation's landscape as homeowners set up "pint-sized" to "king-sized" models. Most of these are rigid-frame models with separate vinyl plastic liners, while others are the family-sized circular tank types. Portable pools range from 6 .to 18 feet in diameter and from 15 to 36 inches deep. They hold from 275 to 5,500 gallons of water. Larger above-ground pools up to 24 feet in diameter, 4 feet deep,' and with a capacity of 13,- fiOO gallons are popular too. Some are constructed of aluminum sidewall supports that protect the plastic liner. In addition, a sturdy tubular steel frame of an interlocking design serves as the overall outside support. It is not advisable to set up the pool on tar paper, black top or any other asphalt or oil-base material that would cause a hardening of the liner.

Electric Living—New Concept In The Home The exclusive use of electricity as the source of energy in the iome is the total electric concept. This awareness of electric living as a r complete unit is still vague to a number of people who think of it in terms of individual appliances rather than as an integral >art of housing, according to the Jive Better Electrically Program of the Edison Electric Institute. The total electric concept, however, is a strong and permanent trend. The key to the overall concept is, of course, electric heating. tn the total electric home elec- :ricity is the sole source of energy 'or light, heat and power. The art of heating the home with electric fuel is comparatively new in many of its present 'orms—and even newer is the method of warming and cooling— or climate conditioning indoor air. The complete electrification of e home is either a gradual or complete development, according lo Mr. William M. Shepherd, Dhairmafl of the! Live Better Electrically Program Policy Committee. Experts predict, Mr. Shep- iving units after 1970 will prob- icrd said, that specifications'for ably include climate conditioning as standard equipment. In the meantime the electrical industry las embarked on a campaign that is selling the total electric concept on a number of levels. To give greater uniformity to .he standards for total electric homes, the Gold Medallion Home Program of the electrical industry defines certain standards for the total electric home that bears this certification. The Gold Medal- ion qualifications insure better wiring, lighting and appliance standards—in other words a home hat, in addition to meeting today's electrical needs—is also pre- >ared to meet them in the years to come. The extent of the total electric concept, Live Better Electrically points out, .'has far reaching possi- Dilities. It is a scientific means Get a Horse!

In the next few years the total electric concept will also be recognized as the most useful means of retarding obsolescence in older homes. In this area the electrical industry has already and continues to conduct educational programs on wiring, kitchen and laundry modernizations, lighting, electric heating and cooling as well as such structural needs as proper insulation..

Some, who rely consistently on their neighbors' advice, find themselves with serious medical problems that could have been avoided. The science of heating, just as the science of medicine, is based on long research, high standards, and exacting application of learned principles. The downfall of many heating systems, says the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Information Bureau, is accepting too literally the well- meant advice of friends and neighbors.
