Rope placed under the papers before they are stacked will make it easier to tie the bundles. The rack shown is 40 inches high, but the CLEVELAND, Ohio—If you have been considering the purchase of summer air conditioning for your home and have been toying, with the question "How much will it cost to operate it?" the air conditioning industry has an answer all ready for you. They are going to tell you that the cost of operating your air conditioning system is going to depend in great degree on you—youi: individual cooling comfort needs—and your method of operating the equipment. Because they have found that costs of operating residential air conditioning are currently very much subject to human factors. Ralph A. Gonzalez, director of technical services, of the Airlemp division of the Chrysler Corporation, addressing the second annual technical conference of the National Warm Air Heating and Air Conditioning association in Cleveland described findings in surveys conducted for the purpose of securing actual costs of operating residential air conditioning in various sections of the nation. These surveys have demonstrated that ". . . there are wide variations in power usage! .' .. for residential purposes," he said. f ° r P" r P° ses <> thc <- than a ' r condl HERE'S HOW...

In homos equipped with the same size central air conditioning units-—:) horsepower— individual home owner's power consumption varied from to 1,520 kilowatts for an summer's cooling needs, ence in individual cooling tempera- servation that owners of residential air conditioning practically never complain of operating costs. In other words, Mr. Home Owner, when you want comfort on that tioning.

Yet, the homes in which the lowest temperatures were maintained were not necessarily the homes of highest power consumption. Additional cost studies described by Gonzalez were those made in New Jersey, Texas and Oklahoma. Jn each study, groups of homes having the same heat gain characteristics and identical cooling equipment was selected. The houses of each group also had the same basic mechanical equipment with reference to cooking and hot water facilities. ', "These studies clearly show that; wide variations in power consump- j lion for air conditioning do occur even, when all differences of heat gain and equipment performances are eliminated or reduced to a minimum," said Gonzalez. He also indicated that these studies indicate: (1) There are wide variations in power used for air conditioning just as there are variations in the amount of residential power used for other purposes in identical houses. Those who used the least amount of power for air conditioning purposes used less than one- half as much as those who usedj the most amount of power for air] conditioning. Yet, they were living; in identical houses. (2) There is no I definite relationship between the, amount- of electrical power used for air conditioning purposes and 5,040 downj comfort necds at a specjf . c mo _ A ^• I f[' re ; men ' rather than selecting a pre- r " determined temperature and permitting the equipment to operate at that temperature setting constantly. "There is no evidence that these usage variations are motivated by reasons of economy any more than by reason of personal preference," he said. ."If economy were the major consideration it would seem reasonable to expect the power consumed for air conditioning to bear a closer relationship to the power consumed for other purposes."

MAKE IT TALL OR LONG When planning to redecorate a room that seems too low, you can "raise" the ceiling by installing boards running vertically. This gives a feeling of increased height, just as installing panel boards horizontally in a room' gives a feeling of greater width. You can get either Douglas fir or west coast hemlock in a variety of panel patterns for bolh vertical and horizontal use. Front Porch Bows to Patio Patios, the scene of many hours of relaxed outdoor enjoyment, are replacing the front porch of grandmother's era in^ the style-wise homes .of today, and designers are going one step farther in the trend towards ."open living" by making the patio a closely integrated part of the home. Patios now frequently open off popular living areas such as com bination living-dining rooms and these indoor-outdoor , areas are separated by siding glass doors instead of an opaque wall. In fine weather the doors slide back easily to let in a flood of fresh air, and the patio automatically becomes an "outside sitting room" only a step away. The indoor living area seems to extend' outside to the patio, affording a feeling of added spaciousness. When the weather is unpleasant the doors can be closed to shut out the elements without stopping the light. The indoor rooms are not cut off from the patio, thus maintaining the feeling of "openness." The beauty of the changfng seasons is added as a living mural which can be enjoyed to the fullest from the comfort of the living room. In sections of the country where pleasant weather prevails, polished plate glass rates high in popularity. Where the weather lends to become seasonally more severe, •homeowners choose lliermopane for its insulating value against heal loss in the winter and excessive heat gain in Ihe summer.

Shade Tree Needs Care Insects attacking shade trees can be separated into two groups: those attacking weakened or dying limbs and those atlacking healthy, foliage and limbs, according to the National Arborist Association. Pruning out dead limbs controls the former, while proven- lalive sprays keep healthy branches and foliage in slrong condition. In pruning all trees, it is wiser mat property owner. to leave the stronger "U" crotches and prune out "V" crotches. The lalter are weaker, lend to split much more easily, says Ihe National Arborist Association. In cases where an infestation of an insect or disease occurs over a fairly wide area, it is much more economically sound to institute coritrol measures for the whole area, according to the National Arborist Associalion.

The very lowest grade of either Douglas fir or west coast hemlock 2x4s can be used. When nailed together one against the other they have excellent structural strength. But, it is in the beauty and low upkeep field that Bailey reaily likes his laminated roof. He prefers rough sawn 2X'ls, for the rough texture of the narrow edge of the exposed wood creates a wonderfully interesting ceiling which needs only a single coat of soft sandstone stain. Some time in the far distant future you may wish to change the color scheme but the upkeep is nil.
