LI VI NO CHECK THESE ADS FOR IDEAS, VALUES Plan Your Remodeling The best plans for remodeling a house include careful thought a bout orientation. Just as when you plan a new house, there are proper places for picture windows and terraces, covered porches, root overhangs, a garage or carport, a fence or latticework—even trees and shrubs. The right location for such improvements can add comfort, economy of operation and lasting value to your house. While it is not practicable to turn an existing house, on its foundation, many of the advantages that might be obtained by such drastic orientation are possible through the right planning of additions or alterations. Aside from making the most of a view—distant or garden variety —orientation can be used to combat prevailing winds and to control the hot summer sun as well as to capture desirable breezes and the. warmth ot the winter sun. This is largely a matter of study ing the compass directions in rela tion to your lot. Here is what you can do about the way those directions affect your house: -NORTHEAST—Sun exposure Is short. Best solution is shading by walls, latticework, high lenees or low trees. Awnings help. EAST—Exposure is intense. Tall and medium trees are needed. Other solutions (in their order ol effectiveness) are a porch or verandah, awnings, reflective screens, roof overhang. SOUTHEAST—A proper roof overhang is the best solution. Others are reflective screens and awnings. Avoid ground slabs, such as paved terraces, that reflect the heat against walls. This is a good side oi the house for Jargc windows. SOUTHWEST—Both tall and medium trees are needed. Provide shade by an attached garage or carport, a porch, awnintjs, reflective screens, Avoid paved areas here. WEST—Sun exposure is short but strong. Walls, latticework, high Sow Pansies in Summer, You'll Wear 'Em in Spring In addition to being one of the garden's most brilliantly colored and easily grown flowers, the summer-planted pansy offers you a chance to be the first in your neighborhood with fresh flowers next spring. Now is the time to plant seed for that early spring harvest of beauty. Pansies are generally classed as annual flowers, but they really are biennial. They lie dormant through the winter, with little care; in a cold 'frame or sheltered place. The plants will hold their green leaves all winter and bloom, as soon as the earliest spring flowers are out. If grown in the shade, with laded flowers removed promptly, they will bloom all summer. It is easy to start a flat or two of these lovely flowers each year. Seed may be sown as late as August 15 in soil prepared by mixing a third sharp sand, a third peat moss, and a third sifted top soil. Cover the surface with a half-inch layer of sphagnum moss, and broadcast the seed in this, with a little moss to cover them. Keep moist until the seeds germinate. The moss will prevent damp- Ing-off, a fungus-disease which is dangerous in hot weather. Let the plants grow out in the open until fall. Then if you have a cold frame put the flat in it and cover with leaves lor the winter. Lacking a cold frame, set the flat in a protected corner, and cover. It li better to transplant the seedlings, setting them seven to eight inches apart in additional flats, but if you sowed thinly, this can be skipped and the plants left to winter in the original flat. When the garden soil has been prepared in the spring, move the plants to a portion of the border which Is on the shady side of a building. They may not grow as VIOU. jtasty Poles March Silently On Poznan Day Thousands of Catholics Observe First Anniversary of Uprising munists convention which they attended in Chicago.

It was a mute tribute to the 75 men, t* women and children who died in rioting against Poland's Stalinist leaders—rioting which led in time to rebellion in Hungary. Riots in'this West Poland industrial city touched off a train of events which saw the return to power of Communist leader or garage, and awnings. Glass area should be kept to a minimum.

The firm, Bollenbaeher & Kelton, of Los Angeles, avoids indiscriminate use of sharps co.ors and widely varying roof pilches, cpn- ccntrating instead on. quiet restraint in developments that lit the terrain.

Other devices here are a {standing ^ ^ schools have been preponderantly in frame design; probably as many as 00 percent are framed in wood and built of wood. What started out to be a'matter of public safely, because wood framed structures better withsand the shocks of earthquakes, has now become a matter of preference. California school authorities now find they like frame school buildings for other reasons than safety, jThey are far less costly than buildings of concrete and masonry, which means more facilities in each school for less money, or even more school rooms in the same school for the same money a smaller masonry structure would cost. Frame schools are more attractive, look less like institutions. They are more easily remodeled, and less the victims of obsolescence.

Aside from the novelty of pansies in the summer, attractive color effects may be obtained by planting named varieties of pansies. Violas may be grown the same way. Their flowers grow almost as large as the pansies in the summer, and are more numerous. Dark blue, yellow and white flowers will make a bed or border which wilt cool you off in the hottest weather. rector, presiding. Installed were the following: L.

So we have chosen an earth- brown for our asphalt shingle color, and a moderately steep pitch for the main roof lines." For variety and interest, Swaner .says, Hi different exteriors arc used for 10 basic floor plans. .Some 80 percent of the roof styles have the same high pilch. They include gable styles, hip roofs, and louvered Scotch-hipped rools. The variety of roof shapes gives each house its individualized look. The total effect of the Bollenbacher rich restraint and a quality ol un- men's Association reports that the interest in schools designed in wood | is spreading across the country from California. The lumbcrr group points out that this.follows the pattern of spread of the contemporary home design which was first developed in California and along Die West Coast and has since became a national movement. Kelton development is obstrustvc substantiality. The high- pitched roofs have an advantage of an air-washed attic, which helps keep the houses cooler in hot San Diego summers. Another important contribution to living comfort is made by u thick layer ol mineral wool insulation laid in blankets between the attic floor joists.

To make the test, draw kitchen plan on a sheet of paper, along with the measurements between appliances. Then draw a triangle from the refrigerator to the sink, to the range, and then back to the refrigerator. Add the dimension. 1 ; of the three sides of this triangle. The total -should be less than 22 feet. A total of more than 22 feet means a great deal of walking. There are three basic "work centers" in the kitchen: a food storage and mixing area with the refrigerator at its center; a preparation and cleanup area around the sink; a cooking and serving center aroilnd the stove. In efficient kitchens, all tools, supplies and utensils arc stored at or near the work areas where they are used. Generally, about six square feet of shelf space Is needed for each member of the family, plus 12 square feet for general .storage.

MeLaughlin acted after' hearing arguments Thursday on a motion for acquiU.nl of Miller. Defense 1 counsel Joseph L.

Miller, playwrig.hl husband of actress Marilyn Monroe, had refused •to tell a subcommittee of the House Committee on Un-American Activities the names of persons he had seen at a Communist meet- i:iR. The Supreme Court's June 17 | ruling in the John T. Watkins caso requires a committee to acquaint a reluctant witness with the scope of its inquiry ;ind how its question* relate to it.
