And thfs is probablv the year's most important single piece of nir conditioning news for both manufacturers and people desjir- >nir complete comfort in then- homes. Want to know how central air conditioning can be installed in '•our home on terms within your budget? There's no all-embracing answer, but the principles are simple enough. All existing homes can be divided into five basic air conditioning situations, according to the type of heating they n&w.usc. Your ' house undoubtedly falls into one of these classifications. 1. FORCED WARM AIR MEAT IN GOOD CONDITION. If you have a .forced warm air furnace in good condition, there'? - - Comfortable Air! LENNOX^ HfAT/NG RICHARDSON Painters • Decorators "Inside and Outside" FREE ESTIMATES Phone 1298-J conditions indoor air 5 way*I an easy solution* Install a conversion unit—a piece of equipment which adapts the furnace tb year? round conditioning. A cooling and dehumidifying coil placed in the ductwork at the furnace outlet Combines with the heating plant's fan and filter to provide summer* time operation. Carrier's Conversion Weathermaker doesn't eVen require water for refrigeration. 2. WORN • OUT FORCED WARM AIR FURNACE. If your forced warm air heating plant is getting to the creaky stage, you d better replace it with a year-round unit. It will be more than slipping a conversion unit on top of the old furnace, and then sliding a new furnace underneath the- conversion equipment it year or two hence. 3. GRAVITY WARM AIR FURNACE. Replacing an old gravity warm air furnace with a year-rouvd unit can be a really happy event from many points of view. You're not only getting rid of an obsolete and by now undependable heating plant, and obtaining the benefits of efficient .year-round air Conditioning, but you'll find that you've reclaimed a great deal of soace in your basement. 4. FLOOR FURNACES OR SPACE HEATERS. If you warm your house in winter with a floor furnace or space heaters, you don't have a central duct, system, and this was once considered a difficult and expensive obstacle. But new summer air conditioning equipment has been, introduced which makes installation of a central comfort system economical.-The air conditioning part of the unit is little larger than a room air condition- .er. 5. WET HEAT? Or perhaps your home uses warm water or steam heat and for this reason lacks central ducts. Now you can have air conditioning too.

Iowa o M i i ROVE it IDEAS AND PROJECTS PRESENTED BY FORTY ALGONA E N T BUSINESS FIRMS Wall Paneling in Luxurious Wood Today Fits Into Modest Budgets WARMTH AND INTEREST are added to, this room by Samara, the low-cost plywood resembling light mahogany in tone and featuring a graceful grain pattern. Though cut in French Equatorial Africa, this fine wall paneling is available to budget-conscious families throughout the U.S. at about $24 for enough to cover an average wall (8 x 12 feet). Beautiful wood wall paneling has been considered a luxury from earliest Biblical limes down through history. Today, however, it is a luxury within the means of any homeowner. Plywood technology has brought such rich woods as mahogany, oak, walnut and Korina within the reach of countless homeowners throughout the U. S. Enough walnut Plankweld to panel an average wall (8 x 12 feet), for example, costs only about $74. 'Formerly, even the very rich could rarely afford to panel their walls in such woods. In addition, foresters throughout the world have discovered great stands of trees which make certain beautiful woods especially economical. An example is Samara, a warm, mahogany- like panel with a swirly grain pattern. Cut, in the jungles of French Equatorial Africa and shipped here, Samara costs only about $24 for the average wall. Nakora From Asia Another example is Nakora, an Asian wood in a light tone, which costs only about $34 for the average wall. Planktex panels, made of Phil- ioDine mahogany, have vertical six inch bands of irregularly cut grooves alternating with the smooth grain pattern of the wood. The result is an interesting "semi-textured" effect. Material cost for Planktex to cover the average wall is about $33. It is also available in factory-finished form at about $47. Economy is also a feature of the wall-paneling materials which resemble sea-washed driftwood. These materials, which bear such appropriate names as Surf- wood and Sea Swirl, are given their bold texture by special abrading treatment. Enough of these materials to panel the average wall costs between approximately $24 and $30. Outside Hot Water Gas water heater manufacturers suggest a home improvement that will earn the gratitude of fastidious housekeepers who shudder when mud is trekked into the house or wiped off on kitchen towels. It's an outside hot water tap, available at chain and mail order stores, that enables anyone who has just finished gardening, a car-washing or other outdoor chore to clean up before going indoors. ^ The tap is equipped with a special valve that turns the h.ot water off inside the wall instead of outside where it might freeze in cold weather.

USE OUR EASY BUDGET PAYMENTS BJUSTROM'S FURNITURE Three Large Floors of New Home Furnishings Fitst Cdsl Is Last /The greatest economy of plywood wall paneling, however, begins after the installation; for the first cost is the last. It is a wall covering material which will not tear, crack or require periodic refinishing. Plywood' lasts the life of the home. A coat 6f good-quality paste wax every year of so is all that is required to maintain its warm, natural beauty In areas were durability is of primary importance, such as children's rooms and rumpus rooms, the driftwood-type panels are ideal. The manufacturers of Surfwood actually invite customers to draw a coin across the panel surface to demonstrate its resistance to scratches. ' » Do-it-Yourself Tile Of Stainless Steel SUiinless steel tile that can be easily put up by the home handyman is now available. Manufacturers say that its most popular home uses have been for over the stove, around the kitchen sink and back of the cabinet counter. Around the washstand in the powder room and in the shower stall have also been favorite spots. Some craftsmen have made coffee tables with stainless tiled tons! Stainless steel tiles have many advantages, in addition to being fashionable and attractive. They are especially easy to clean. The stainless surface, which can't rust and is extremely durable, can usually be wiped clean with of" dinary soap, or ammonia, and water. This is an. added advantage in the kitchen. CHARM of sea-washed driftwood is built into this wall of Surf- wood. This easy-to-install plywood panel is recommended for dens, g«rh« room*, children'* rooms and other areas where infor- mBlilttibF-the k«yndl». Sp%pUlSS*Hdfcfg prcbess gives Surfwood its dramatic sculptured effect. Cost: about $24 for, enough to cover the average wall (8'x 12 feet). FHA Improvement Loons Okay for Built-in Items Under recent clarifications of the Federal Housing Administua- lion regulations, homeowners may obtain FHA approval under title one for many built-in appliances This means that kitchen remodel* ing can often be substantially financed by an FHA Home Improvement loan. It is stressed, however, that the appliance rul- inn applies only to appli& that are actually a permanent part of the house and not, the free-standing type. Since many appliances now mean a long-term investment, several experts in the kitchen plcmning field have recommended that the homeowner purchase the best quality-^eavy gauge steel, rigid construe^.!, the latest in automatic controls, and a lib- era] use of long-lasting, solid stainless steel, instead of softer metals or plated materials, for all doors and working surfaces.

Careful Roof Care Aid to Pocketbook Even the m-.n on the proverbial galloping horse can see that it's important to check up on your roof at regular intervals. It follows logically, that it's just as important to make necessary repairs promptly and to use good roof coatings-and other protective materials when the heed for them becomes evident. Needless to say, it will save you money in the long win. If you don't know what kind of coating is best for your roof, consult your paint dealer or roofing contractor. It's 'wise, incidentally, to have trained roof men inspect your roof periodically so they can spot small trouble spots before they become big ones. What are roof coatings? The trade usually groups them into these categories: asbestos roof cement, abestos roof coating, gs- phalt emulsion, metal roof paint and non-fibered roof coating. All are designed for specific purposes, and for, this reason, care shovild be used to see that the right kind pf coating is selected for the type of roof for which it was manufactured.

In the hall the wiring devices needed depend upon its length. The long hall needs ceiling ligljts with 3-way switches at each end. The small hallway may be iffi- ciently equipped with only one switch. Check your needs and ijicin accordingly. The bathroom lighting is imppjr- tant. Many parents of young and growing children like a dim ceiling night light controlled by a wall switch with another switch controlling the bright fluorescent mirror lights. One duplex wall outlet is most useful for electric shavers, hair • driers and other modern aonliances. The type of outlet that provides a ground is best for this purpose.
