This is true of the built-in cooking units that are helping to revolutionize the kitchen and restore it to its ancient position as .heart of the home. Caloric Built-in gas range units were the result of a demand. Builders and architects have learned from housewives that kitchens in the new homes must not only be work centers . . .but also attractive living areas — a "family room" where all the family can gather. Designed with this new thinking in mind, the Caloric Built- Ins offer special flexibility in kitchen planning as well as color and distinction for modern kitchen decoration. Separate •oven- broiler and top burner units can be installed in kitchen cabinets, along counter tops, in the wall. They can be placed in straight line, .peninsular or island installations, handy to both preparation and service areas. The oven broiler, placed at the height the home maker desires, eliminates fatigue from stooping. Providing smart styling and versatility for the kitchen, Caloric door panels for v oven-broiler units are available in a wide choice of color and finish. come in porcelain enamelled TREES SHRUBS PERENNIALS EVERGREENS FERTILIZERS r , FLAGSTONE WALKS RUSTIC STONE WALLS ' BERRY AND FRUIT STOCK LANDSCAPE DESIGNING AND PLANTING Call Us on Any Landscape Problt-m No Obligation Elmore Nursery Elmore, Minnesota Phono Office 30 Warehouse 157 LET US HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL I = n "Your Security Is jj Our Business" 1 We can help you plan a regular savings schedule to n meet your goal of financial independence . ., .• and to help g you gain the things you want most » n life - ' 1 Come 'in now.

Special features of the Caloric Built-Ins include automatic clock control and four-hour timer, controlled top burner heat with Speed-Set burners, seamless porcelain enamel oven and broiler, Observador Pyrex window in the oven, interior oven light, heavy fiberglass insulation and non-jarring balanced-action oven door. The Caloric Built-in is designed and engineered exclusively for gas, thus providing smokeless broiling with the door, closed. There is no smoke or fumes to damage cabinets, as with open- door broiling. An exclusive "Bevelock" sealing device prevents seepage of grease or food under counter tops. ' Like other Caloric products, the Built-Ins are constructed for use with bottled, natural or manufactured gas. A Few Words About Sandpaper The coarsest grade of sandpaper is No. SVfc; the finest is No. 8/0 — but you probably will never have reason to use these. For sanding woodwork and walls, the most commonly used coarse grade is No. IVfe. Use No. \£ for initial sanding of furniture, and finish with No. 0 and 00. Use No. 3/0 or 4/0 for your finest finishing work. AMAZING STORAGE IDEAS Modern room dividers are amazing examples of • compact storage ideas which may also double for pieces of furniture. A unique idea is to have an L- shaped room divider as the frame and backing for a custom .built davenport, or one of any size. Games, linens, silverware, and china storage is provided on opposite side, with entire installation of lovely west coast hemlock finished in clear-res to bring out pastel coloring texture and grain of this fine wood. Best flowers for your window box are of the dwarf or drooping varieties. Balcony-type petunias, nasturtiums, giant morning "glories, marigolds, ageratum,. cali- opsis, annual pinks, lobelia, phlox and zinnias — all .are excellent. Annuals should get at least 6 hours of sun a day. ELEAD M.
