Combining beauty with the qual

hardwood veneer represents the
highest standards of craftsman

Many of the" unusual wood pat
terns to be found in modern fur
niture could not be produced ex
cept through the fabrication of
hardwood plywood and face
veneers. Wherever wide surfaces
are used, either flat or curved,
hardwood plywood Construction
gives the most satisfactory results
both in attractiveness of the wood
grain and durability. . -
Apparently some people have
the mistaken idea that hardwood
cheer furniture is inferior in
quality;' The truth-is-fhatuoud
veneers are unsurpassed m beauty,
strength and stability. Crotch, burl
and stump wood which provide
the most beautiful wood figures
could not be utilized otherwise
L because of a tendency to crack
ana sput u usea as soiia pieces.
'Applied in the form of thin face
veneers on hardwood plywood
'panels, these fine grains can be
utilized to the - utmost without
splitting or chipping at corners
This explains why 75 percent of
all . wood furniture exhibited at
leading furniture shows in Chica
go, Grand Rapids and New York
were of hardwood veneer. It also
is the reason hardwood plywood
is used extensively in the manu
facture of television and radio

Due for Boom
While new home construction
will be down from the 1950 peak;
building authorities agree that re
modeling and repair business will
boom in 1951.
Severe credit restrictions im.
posed under the Government's
Regulation X limit the construe,
tion of new homes, but thera la no
effective deterrent to the repair
and remodeling of existing homes
ana iarm ouuaings.
The Federal Housing Authority
continues to pursue a liberal credit
policy in insuring loans bv banks
and other lending institutions to
finance rerjairs and remodelins-J
The FHA insures loans in amounts
up us 92,600, subject only to a
down payment of 10 nercent and
repayment oi the balance in 30
. Government officials obviously
recognize the Importance of keep-;
uik nomes in aooa remr. espe
cially at a time when new cod-!
struction is being restricted. !
Actually, the owners of older,
homes who have been wanting to1
remodel or make needed repairs
now will have a better opportu-!
nity to have the work done. Build
ing mechanics have been engaged!
largely on new construction, and!
new homes have consumed the.
bulk of the. building materials
available... : ':.... i
I ..Take roofing, for example. Me-,
chanics and materials should be
available for lonff-deferred n-

pnan roonng industry is malclng
every possible effort to meet the'
unprecedented demand for its
products. Shipments of strip shin
gles exceeded 3,000,000,000 squares
for the first time last May, and
have been in excess of that flmre
every month since. i

This was found to be tntirfie-

also showed that baseboard heat
ing provides better comfort at

systems. The nisfazme points out,
however, that this type system
also can be used in houses hav

Increased use of baseboard
heating systems in low-cost hous

the resuUs of the tesU conducted
by the Bureau, a unit of the V- S.
Department of Commerce.
. The Bureau found this type of
heating system to be efficient,
clean and economical, says Amer
ican Builder. Baseboard heating
involves a minimum of air move- i
ment. Another advantage is that
the heating elements not much
thicker or higher than a base
board are almost entirely re
moved from the useful area of
the living space.
Results of the tests Indicated
that comparatively small tem
perature differences existed be
tween the rooms and between
different levels in the same room,
according to the publication.
Compared to the performance of
a gravity hot water heating sys
tem with conventional thin tube
radiators and the boiler in the
basement, the baseboard convec
tor was found to provide a more
even distribution of temperature
between floor and ceiling.

In 1902 two Wisconsin fishery

As to the largest fish caught in
fresh water that was the Ore

Nephi Purcell landed the heaviest
Oregon sturgeon of which we can
find positive record. It came from
the Snake River in Idaho. Purceil

setline, a 7.16 inch rope, was dou

stakes, with slack between. A gun
