II , ( is just an obvious conclusion, warranted by the development of a new method for using asphalt shingles. Changes in house design have been brought about before by new building materials and new ideas for using them. You can cite the window wall, rhade practicable in northern climates by vacuum- sealed double glass. And there is the trend to wide roof overhangs, which at least.was aided and abetted by the need for shade to increase the efficiency of summer cooling systems. The reason you can now virtual-j ly bet on gables becoming squat-i I most flat shed slope—is that your money will be saved if ynu.'r« paying for the building job. Less Slope .MAJOR POIJfTS in new method of roofing * low pitch. ;o use built-up roofing or other systems. Didn't Like Looks Well, a lot,of people .didn't care much for the looks .of black roll roofing on a house—especially when pitched roofs blossomed out hues. So the daring young architects, were more or less saddled with gdbled roofs. Now it turns out that you can build a rain-tight, wind-tight roof Architects have be^n flirting for with a pitch as low as fwo inches years with what they call "flat tops." The structural lumber and roofing material required to build a pitched and gabled roof have per foot, and use popular asphalt shingles if you do it in the right way. First you attach a metal drip edge along the eaves and along been obvious extravagances. So in the rakes of your roof. recent years, you'have seen the, cover the roof deck with two lay- slopes of roofs on new houses be-iers of No. 15 asphalt saturated felt. strip by 19 inches and is cement ed to the previous strip. All this material is further secured tc the roof deck by ^-inch roofing nails— with' only enough nails use< to hold the material in place unti the shingles are applied. The another starting strip is applied along the eaves. This can be a row of asphalt shingles reversed or a strip of 90-pound minera 1 , sur faced roofing. The first course o shingles will; completely cover this strip. Withstood Tests An exposure of only 5 inches is allowed for each course of shing les.

Economical shingles could no longer be used, because of the problem of water backing up under them on pitches of less than four inches. You could build a flat roof, or one with .a pitch ,of only two inches or so, but you had You start this underlaymenti with a 19-inch starter course laid along the eaves to over-lie the metal drip edge. The starter, course .is asphalt cement and a full 36-inch width of the felt is then laid to overlap the starter course completely. From Felt Overlap then on, each 36-inch width of felt overlaps the previous MUITIFLORA ROSE 100 Shrtjbs, 6 to 9 inch . . $1.00 SPIREA (Van Hotitte — Bridalwreath) 10 Shrubs. 9 to 12 inch . . $1,00 :25 Shrubs, 9 to 12 inch . . $2.00 PAMPAS GRASS Most Popular Ornamental Grass ; 5 for $1.00 ng She cement out over the exposed -surfaces.

A specially designed "storm machine" was used in the tests. Panels of roofing remained completely weathertight at the end of six hours of simulated, continuous 50-mile-per-hbur wind and a 2- inch-per-hour rainfall. For parts of the country where ature Is 25 degrees or less, tional fell is specified for 24 inches back from the inside wall line of the building. Creosoted Posts Have Long Life Pine - lumber treated with creosote oil has shown remarkable durability under ground. Wooden pipe lines laid in 1799 by the Manhattan Co. which was Aaron Burr's water supply com pany, have been excavated in sound condition in New York. The New York Telephone Co and the Consolidated Edison Co used creosoted pump logs from Georgia for conduits for many years before pre-cast concrete sections were adopted in 1932. A total of 2200 miles of wooden conduits still are used by the Edison company under the streets o] Brooklyn and Queens County. The telephone company -reports that 3,350,000 feet of wooden casings still are used for its wires under Long Island and Staten Island. Pump logs were 6-foot lengths equipped with terminals for tight joints. In cross section they were in the form of a 6-inch square with a hole of about 4 inches in diameter bored through the center.
