Virie BATIOWN iUN, WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 13, Your Home— HERE ARE 15 RESOLUTIONS FOR CARE OF YOUR HOME By LOWELL LAMMERS, AIA Each year we resolve anew, And so .each-year .I'll resolve with you: Resolution 1. Take care of the seasonable things promptly and now that winter is here and 1 I don't need the screens • I should take them down, clean them, repair the. little broken ; places in them, reinforce them with metal corners if necessary and even go so far as to give them a coat of paint. Resolution 2. At this time of the. year to work on the grounds; to cut a drainage ditch where it is needed 1 ; to build up some low WHERE TO BUT TVs & Appliances Kovar Appliance Co. "We R«ally Service What We Sell" WHY DIET TO TAKE OFF UGLY FAT? Why riot try tbe sensible way to reduce? Just ask your druggist for Jfour ounces of liquid Barcentrate— I now Just *1.69. Mix with grapefruit Juice as directed on label and take I according to directions. II the very i first bottle doesn't show you the sen- itdble vay to reduce, return the empty bottle for your, money bock. Nothing harmful in Barcentrate. No dieting -— no calorie counting. R. K. Mitchell, 6503 MInoU Street, 'Houston, Texas, wrote us as follows: -1 weighed 216 pounds when I com- Jnenced to take Barcentrate. After fcsiog two months, my weight wai 180.1 did not diet in any way. Before •sing Barcentrate, I was bothered with constipation and bad a bkatod Jeding ID my stomach." places with top soil; to remove the dead limbs and cut back the bushes and shrubs that have gotten out--of hand or assumed unpleasant shapes. Resolution 3. While it is cool and the foliage is sparse I will inspect the foundations carefully noting any cracks or signs of a • settling or termite activity so that I can call in the Architect or the termite man to adVise me on remedies. Resolution 4. That I crawl under the house and inspect it thoroughly while the spiders and other wildlife are dormant from the cold weather. Resolution 5. That when spring gets here and the weather-warms up and 1 the rains, come we check our caulking and weather seals around the windows and doors and that we inspect our roof, our valleys,'gutters, and clean leaves out of the downspouts. If I don't "have splash blocks, that I install them now. Resolution 6. That early in spring I plan any changes that I want to make around 1 in the house so that when the first'real good' building weather arrives' I can get at it and have everything ready. Resolution 7. That as the season nears when I shut off the heating system that I clean it thoroughly and change the filters so it may be ; used as a blower in summer. Resolution 8. That I , clean the house up well and check the floor finishes for wear in the doorways and see if I 'can't "spot-in a ' few places to prolong the life of the finish without spending the money for an enitrely new job. : . Resolution 9. That I get the fans out. of storage, clean the blades, oil them'and check the electrical cords so that they are in readiness when I really need them. Resolution 10. That I check all the windows to see that they operate properly and open fully. That, the locks are intact and in good working eondi'Sori. Resolution 11. That when hot weather does arrive I see..that the soil around'the house foundations is not allowed to dry- out causing the house to move and settle and the foundations to crack or sink. Resolution 12. For those of us who have air conditioning units, new filters installed and the unit test run, dusted out and oiled. For the rest of us that th§ soace heat- •ers.are disconnected and put away and that the floor furnaces are shut off.- cleaned out and a,heavy paper inserted under the grill . to keep dirt from falling in it all summer .long. .Resolution 13. Check the outside hose connections. See .it they need new washers and are, not dripping and running the .water bill up, and along with this probably a new section of garden hose to replace the old one that is taped in several places. , . Resolution 14. Don't forget m early summer, or should I have included it in late spring, the inspection, repair and painting of .the porch and yard furniture. Resolution 15. That: I read-The Baytown Sun every day and this column every week so that I might be kept abreast of the latest and best things that; tiie architect has to offer in, home .designing,. construction,, maintenance and repair.

Nortto East South Weal 19 Pass 1 NT Pass 2 <|k Pass 2 NT Pass 3 V Pass 3 NT On his second bid, North was sound, but when ho r e b (d the hearts on his third turn, he was away off the beam. That call made South sure North had flve hearts and only four clubs, con- sequently four cards in the other two suits. In what "he rated u a close question, that.slight misleading caused South to make the wrong bid on his final turn. If North had rebid the clubs on his third turn, South said later, he would have bid 4-Clubs, which North would have taken to game In the suit, and it could have been made easily with the loss of nothing except two spade tricks. South bid the 3-No Trumps, as It was, for two reasons. First, the club situation did not look as good as it was. Second, the No Trump situation looked a little better than the fact. Against the No Trump game West led the diamond 10 to the Q and A. Seeing a chance if West held the heart Q and J, South finessed the 10. That made it easy for the defenders to get throe tricks in diamonds, one in hearts and two in spades to beat the contract two tricks.
