Real Estate Today By DICK ROZYNEK, GRI Realtor How Much Hot Water? . One of the items frequently "overlooked when remodeling or •buying a new home, is the capacity of the hot water heater.

A tank of 50 gallons capacity with a recovery rate of 40 gallons will supply 90 gallons an hour which should be plenty for a family of five in a home with two baths and an automatic dishwasher and clotheswasher. A family of four without the dishwasher should be able to get by on a 30 or 40 gallon tank firmed with 30 gallon recovery. ceiling United Press International The administration calls it "scare talk," but meat packers warn that they are caught in a squeeze \ between the retail price ceiling and the cost of cattle that will cause a nationwide shortage of beef— 1 beginning possibly as soon as this weekend.
