BETTER HOMES' SPONSOR OF $25000 CONTEST , If you are thinking of remod- 'oling. landscaping or making any home improvements, yon will be I interested to k'now that the Bots- i ford Lumber company of Algo| na is cooperating as an official ! contest headquarters for the Bet' lev Homes and Garden maga- i zinc's Home Improvement con- 'test. Recognizing the fact that ! this will be'a boom year in home '1 improvement, the magazine is !sponsoring this contest wijjh $25,- |OOG in cash prizes. Announcement i vvas made of this contest in the | January issue of Better Homes i and Gardens. ! This year, 1956, has 1 been offi- | dally proclaimed by the federal I government as Home Improve- j ment Year and the purpose of I this contest'is to stimulate home j improvement by recognizing and 'rewarding it. i 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- utility.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 filial 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 nl! 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 $25,000 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 book, beautifully itfus-J trated in color, containing information on landscaping, rdmodel- ihg, 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 in the final entry form for the snapshots and ruled paper \vill be included so that you can easily sketch out a floor plan of your project. 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 w;ll receive $100 each. From those 128 qualifying winners, 16 division winners will be chosen, four in each .division. They will receive $500 each. From those 16 division winners will be chosen the three top winners of the contest L$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 x 'Botsford Lumber company. COLOR MAGIC OF PAINT TURNS KITCHEN TRICKS Color in your kitchen is as important as spice is to food. In feet, 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- ncugh for kite-hen 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 the Key. White used next to any color will intensify that color by raising its key; black acts to Che contrary, modifying the Intensity of colors next to it. You can ,use both black and white, there- The "Built-in" Kitchen Look! planning center.

Watch out for pure colors on large areas—especially red, yellow and the warmer tones, since they tend to advance into a room. Generally, rooms, done in warm colors seem smaller—in cool colors, larger. Pale colors require good light to be appreciated—but too strong tints tend to kill them. Many pastel tints look faded and .dir- ty on a wall. Particularly in the kitchen, a tint should have a definite color value. If a color seems too pale after you . have applied it, you can increase its color value by painting a small area or trim in a complementary colors are arrangements of opposites—green is the complementary of red; orange of blue; yellow of purple. The Brighter the Better. ' Don't be afraid of color. More kitchen color schemes are bad because they are dull than because they have too much color. The right accessories as well .as the right trim can correct a faulty scheme—so if you*are uncertain of the success of your chosen scheme, leave the decision of trim and accessories until ceiling, walls and floors are done. If you are at a loss for a color scheme, consult your paint dealer or the nearest steel-kitchen do they do if on on ever income No, the girls aren't talking about the Jones' home . . . or their i-ar . . . or the way they entertain. ' ' They're just making the same mistake so many people make—believing, that a Timken Gas or Oil Burner'is a luxury, simply because it is such a fine burner with such a i'ine record of performance behind it. It's easy to set them straight! First fact is that a Timken costs so little more than an ordinary burner that you'd sctircely j>ive 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 Timken'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.
