Instead of wasting our vitriol on the weather, we should turn cur attention to something we can control — the "climate" indoors. As jobholders, we work an average eight-hour day, and very likely we are at horns the greater portion of each 24 hours. So if colds are frequent and linger, the source Is often traceable to gome adverse element in the residential atmosphere., For example, it can be just as tough on our respiratory ; systems for our homes to be too •55 hot as too cold. A "hot-box" is more likaly to promote colds than prevent them. By the mere act of departing a stuffy, overheated Interior for the frigic out-doors, we may be inviting pneumonia. Drafty domiciles have been responsible for many a case o: the sniffles, and excessive humidity is most stimulating to cold bacteria. As this indicates, the residential climate should be properly conditioned. Not only does this require a good, well-balanced beating system, but also the kind of house in which it can function efficiently. Here are come prescriptions from the Southern Pine Association: It's desirable to nave a thermostatically controlled heating system — adequate for the size of the house and any contemplated additions. It should be located where it can be conveniently serviced. If the fuel bills are running too high, the units should be checked by a heating contractor. The ability to maintain comfortable, even room temperatures depends on factors other I than the system itself. The most important is the overall weath- ertightness of the dwelling—determined by the degree of structural soundness and quality of insulation. First, the house structure should be close knit. It is usually built of lumber. The latter should be "pre-shrunk" by proper seasoning to assure nail Injured Angleton Woman At Home A 26-year-old Angleton woman is back at her 0 home following emergency treatment for a gunshot wound in an apparent suicide attempt. Mrs. Beatrice Thomas Binion of 620 West Orange was taken to the Angleton Hospital and then to John Sealy Hospital in Galveston early Tuesday, when her nephew, Ervin Eugene Stames, was (.wakened by a pistol shot The youth said she told him she had shot herself and asked that he call an ambulance. Brazoria County Sheriff Jack Marshall said the bullet passed completely through Mrs. Binion's body. The wound was in the left upper chest, just above the heart, and came from a 38 calibre revolver. holding strength and snug joints. When Southern Pine framing is grade-marked, the buyer has assurance of proper seasoning. A second requirement is adequate insulation. Good practice calls for a layer of lumber called "sheathing" as bracing for the floor, wall and roof structures. This vital feature should never be omitted since it greatly improves the insulation and weathertightness of the house. In some climates, the natural insulating properties of wood sheathing preclude the need for additional insula t i o n. Else where, it may be needed. If in doubt consult a heating and cooling engineer. Doors and windows should be properly weather stripped and in areas of severe cold, storm windows provided. If the house is tightly built with adequate insulation, the heating system will work with maximum efficiency at minimum cost. Room temperatures will stay even and excess humidity eliminated. It's also healthy to have a raised platform floor structure of wood. Not only does this remove the base of the house from earth moisture, but it also uses the natural resiliency of lumber to cushion the feet, which makes for easy walking. With the strain of housework, reduced along with the humidity, the house-wife is not prone to exhaustion that brings on colds.
