North Central Public Service Phone 1412 ALGONA Modern Paints Make New Rooms For Old Perhaps, just a moment ago, you were heartily \vishing 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 r;nd inexpensively — with the ;iid of the countless eye-delighting 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 as for the time it takes, you'll be surprised how rapidly you can apply the color . . . in a very few hours, at nuii^t. 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 vou'll be wise to smooth the surface before the filling material is quite dry. This lessens the amount of .-.uncl- ing. you'll need to do later.

COWAN BUILDING SUPPLY In the past few years, Air- Conditioning has grown by leaps and bounds. 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 the average home to enjoy the comforts 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 ins- talhytions made right into thu 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. A permanent installation can be made in a home on a Tile I FHA loan plan. FIXIN-UPTIPS For the Home Presdwood, noted for its sturdiness, smooth surface and paint- ability.

Locust St. Algona, Iowa Colorful New Trend For Home Exteriors Glorifies Landscape In the last few years there has been a complete revolution, in the manner of using color on the interior walls of our homes. Now, well under way, is a color revolution for home exteriors. It had its beginning in the newly built developments where the all-lop- 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. But II you arc in a plane looking down from your "magic carpet," the fascinating wealth of color you are likely to see is an even greater delight to your eyes.
