THE AUTOMOBILE SECTION
Point of Importance
Is Town's Entrance
A little town may not know wliat
to do to mnUe Itself attractive,*"n
matter that lui* irmwn liljihly lmpor
tnnt to nil those on a main auto-
mobile lilj-'hway. ¡Several thousand
people ot more or less critical and
cultured ta*te are (joins to pass
through It every day and their opin-
ion of It will he spread to the ends
of the nation. Is the sage comment
niado by F. II. Collier In the St. Louis
Already a number of villages have
begun to consider the question of por-
tals—some kind of a distinguished
entrance whore the highway departs
from the country and .loins the "main
street." A town in Ohio 1ms set a
large fountain at this point and sur-
rounded It with lawns and trees.
Another lias "zoned" that portlou of
the village and will allow no sheds
or coal bins there,
The least that any village can do
1 to lay out flower beds and l?eep
them fresh. A plain lawn, jeweled
with red geraniums, is better than
weeds or tin cans, scattered with
the profusion so often shown by the
tasteless and the careless. Residents
of any community can be stlrre^l up
to beautlflcatlon if earnestly besought.
People who are restive under rural
monotony may here find something
to occupy their Idle hours.
Pennsylvania Plans to
Beautify Its Highways
Banks and slopes along Pennsylva-
nia highways nest year will glow with
color. Flowering grasses, vines and
shruba will hide the yellow scars
where fills or cuts have been made.
The department of highways, which
some months ago announced the in-
auguration of a planting program, has
revised that program to Include the
setting out of blossom-bearing vines
and small trees.
Highway department officials are
anxious to hasten planting so that pas-
sage over Pennsylvania roads will not
be continuously through landscapes
scarred by the activities of road build-
The highway department In Instruc-
tions to engineers has notilled them
that they may make requisition for
vines and other growths they deem
necessary. The state will require ap-
proximately 800.000 vines. Among
these will be wild roses, rambler and
But the colors will not bo confined
to the vines the department will plant.
The engineers are making selections
from ten grasses. IncliKWng white
clover, the pink alsike clover, the blue
hairy vetch, the purple alfalfa and yel-
low vaccarla. These grasses will be
used for slope planting in conjunction
with orchard grass, meadow fescue,
tall meadow oat grass, Canada blue
grass and perennial rye grass.
The general location of the home
may depend largely on the part of the
city in which the members of the fam-
ily are most likely to be employed.
It should be either within walking dis-
tance of the probable place of work or
in reach of good transportation. The
mere promise that a trolley or bus line
will be provided Is not enough. Abil-
ity to reach shopping centers Is im-
portant for the housewife.—Minneap-
Fire Prevention Easy
Careful watching of tire and heat In
any capacity In which It is used,
ordinary precautions with matches,
cigurettes and Inflammables, and the
repairing of defective mechanical ad-
ditions to building construction and
comfort would virtually rout the fire
demon from his abode, according to
the past year's report of the chief of
a large city's fire department.

Rebuilding or altering of old houses
is often an excellent investment even
where not necessary from the utiliza-
tion point of view. Selling values thus
gained are frequently out of propor-
tion to the expense. This is particu-
larly true of lumber-built houses, which
are peculiarly susceptible to altera-
tion, and they are a large proportion
of the houses which are available for
Building material dealers through-
out the country are actively assisting
their clients in studying and planning
alterations of an improving nature,
both practically and estlletlcally, and

A proper choice of varieties of trees
to be set out and the appropriate lo-
cation of each tree should constitute
the first job after the laying of the
bouse foundations and the outlining
of the puths and driveways, Is the
opinion of a writer In the Philadel-
Just how many trees you will decide
to plant will naturally depend upon
the size of your home grounds. If
your acre or acres or "lot" will per-
mit you should Include a tree or so
for shade, large ones such as the
Norway maple, buttonwood, oals, or
horse chestnut, a few evergreens such
as Koster's blue spruce, Austrian pine
or a hemlock for their winter beauty
and summer coolncss, and a few fruit
trees for the suke of their spring
blossoming as well as their welcome
fruit. Several ornamental trees, If
well placed, will add much to your
place both in charm and elegnnce.
There are a number, such at Tea's
weeping mulberry, the catalpa bungel
or tho tulip tree, any one of which
will give a touch of style to the whole
garden. The Kilmarnock weeping wil-
low is still another "ornamental"
which is exceedingly graceful and
beautiful and hardy as well.
No place appears to be quite com-
plete unless it can boast of at least
a lew shrubs for every season of the
year. There should be a few ever-
greens to cheer us with their glossy
leaves or red berries, and to relieve
the barren gray of winter time. The
foray thin, that gayest harbinger of
early spring, should find some nook
in every garden.
Serves Double Purpose
In European countries, where for-
estry is an established department of
government, It Is ¡i uniform rule that
no tree can he cut down unless an-
other one is planted to take Its place.
That prevents forest depletion, but it
does not create new forests. America
must repair its prodigious timber
wastage of the !nst half century, be-
sides crcatin;.' vast areas or timber
lands as m counterfoil to nature's own
wastage for centuries.
There Is no better method of spread-
ing the tree-pliintlng habit, In farming
communities, than in bordering all
state highways with trees.
