S. Department of the Interior, householders were warned todny to take all possible steps to protect their families against future discomfort and illness brought on by- lack of heat. The warning came from the Construction Research Bureau of New York City, clearing house (or building Information, which declared: "In view of the prediction of continuing fuel shortages, slop-gap measures will not be of much help. Homes should Ijc winterized Includes closing all cracks; Installation of vcatlierstrlpptiiK and storm sash; and Insulation of walls and attic. If this is done, tiie homes of the nation will be permanently pr»- parcd to meet any future fuel crisis." Full-thick insulation of walls and roof nrca Is the biggest single step in winterizing the home and will save at least one-third of the fuel that would be consumed without this protection, the Bureau said. Such savings usually will equal or exceed one month's mortage debt amortiP-ation payment.
