''•$; :.'*, 'BETTER HOMES' SPONSOR OF $25000 CONTEST If you .are thinking of remod cling, landscaping or making anj home improvements,' you will b interested to know that the Bots ford Lumber company of Algo na is cooperating as aft bfficia contest headquarters for the Bet tev Homes and Garden ma'ga zine's Home Improvement con test. Recognizing the fact tha this will be a boom year in home i improvement, the magazine is sponsoring this contest 5 with $25,- OOfc in cash prizes. Announcement \yas made of this contest in the January issue of Better Homes and Gardens. This year, 1056, has been officially proclaimed by the federal government as Home Improvement Year and the purpose -of this contest is to stimulate home improvement by recognizing and rewarding it. ' The contest is .divided into four divisions. First, the exterior outside of your hoUse or lot. Next is the interiors division .". . any improvement inside the already existing house, except 'for, the kitchen-utility area. Third is the additions division . . . any new, enclosed space attached • to the house. And next, the kitchen- utilitjf area ... either remodeled from present space, or added,, or both. An expensive, professional remodeling job is not necessary to. give you the winning entry. The prizes, rules, and judging are designed so that a small, inexpensive improvement .will have 'exactly the same chance to win a prize-as a large, costly project. The entrant chooses his own division. Then, after the final entry form is received by Better Homes and-'Gardens, the 'judges will decide just which of> the four classes in that division • it goes. These classes are based on the scope of the project itself so that all entries are in competition only with entries of equal scope. This eliminates the possibility of a small but effective improvement being matched against a large, costly project. You compete only with others in your same class, ' •» Entry blanks and further details of the $25,0(Jb contest are now available at Botsford' Lumber company, Algona. After you send in your entry blank, Better Hcmes and Gardens will send you a final entry form . . . PLUS a ( 32-page tyook, beautifully illus-^ treted''in color, containing information on landscaping, remodeling, painting, furnishing and financing home improvement. The final entry form should contain "before" and "after" snapshots and rough sketches of floor plans* Space will be- provided f in the final entry form for the snapshots and ruled paper v/ill be included so that you can easily sketch out a floor plan of jour projecj. These drawings don't have to be the work of an artist either, just a rough sketch is all that is necessary to help explain your project. Projects entered in this contest must be completed in 1956 but do not necessarily have to. be started then.' In this contest, there will be 128 qualifying winners, 32 in each of the four divisions, who will receive $100 each. From those 128 qualifying winners, 16 division winners will be chosen, four in each division. They will receive S500 each. From those 16 division winners will be chosen the three top winners of the contort $2500 to first place, $1000 to second place, and $700 to third. Entrants will have from now until December 31, 1956 to enter this contest. Anyone desiring more information concerning this contest can stop at'the Botsford Lumber company. COLOR MAGIC OF PAINT TURNS KITCHEN TRICKS Color in your kitchen is as important as spice is to food. In fact, say color experts, the paint you choose for this room may even influence your family relations. You can key your working hours to more pleasant moods with stimulating or relaxing colors; lessen physical fatigue with tones and finishes that reflect or absorb light. Washable paints—durable e- nrtigh for kitchen use—are now available in velvety mat finishes. But, since these tend to absorb light, rather' than reflect it, you'll probably do better to stick to glossy paints if your kitchen is on the dark side. Remember, too, that light colors reflect and diffuse light, and that no tone equals a pure white on the ceiling for reflection value. Color Is |h« Key. White used next to any color will intensify that polor by raising its key; black acts to the contrary, modifying the intensity of colors next to it. You can iuse both black and white, there- The:JBuilt-In" , .

It's easy to set them straight! » First fact is that a Timken costs so little.more than an ordinary burner that you'd scarcely give it a second thought. Second fact is that the day it's installed, it starts saving fuel. And Timken owners will tell you it doesn't take long for such savings to return the small difference in first cost, Add to this economy Tjmken's greater quietness, dependability and longer life and you get an answer that's clear as day: You'd save money, even if Timken cost twice as much. , Get the exact figures and all the facts from your Timken Dealer today.
