Harold (Si) Roth Phone 452 Modern Paints Make New Rooms For Old Perhaps, just a moment ago, yoy were heartily wishing that, you 'could transform one of the rooms of your household . . . that you could manage, somehow, to give it outstanding new beauty. Well, you can. The biggest single change you can make does not lie in replacing your furniture or your fabrics, but in changing the room's background color. This, you yourself can do ... easily, quickly and inexpensively — with the aid of the countless eyc-delight- ing hues of paint that are now available. Actually, the ceiling, walls and woodwork of an average room can be repainted for less than $10. And us for the time it takes, you'll be surprised how rapidly you can apply the color . . . m a very few hours, at most. Before re-painting a ceiling—or any other surface, for that matter — make sure that all cracks are carefully filled, then smoothed level with the .surface. Small hairline cracks can be filled with spackling material. It sets very rapidly, so you'll be wise to smooth the surface before the filling material is quite- dry. This lessens the amount nf sanding, you'll need to do later.

It all started when factories and business offices discovered that air-conditioning during the hot months of summer increased workers' efficiency to a measurable extent. Next, retail stores found that air-conditioning, by making shopping a pleasure during the hot season, was a definite asset. Now, the stage is set for tho average home to enjoy the corn^' forts of air-conditioning — not only during the summer but year - 'round. Installations for home range from elaborate fan units to window units such as shown in photo above—to installations made right into the heating system for all year use. Algona plumbing and heating contractors and appliance dealers have a wide range of models available for home air-conditioning. Now is the time to investigate them.

Now, well under way, is a color revolution for home exteriors. It had its beginning in the newly built developments where the all-top- similar "cookie cutter" houses looked so much alike that their owners turned to their paint-color cards for the variation that you created individuality. As you drive along the street in such an area, you are, of course, aware of the wide variety of attractive colors now being used for the purpose.
