New Appliances In Wall-
board Industry Cause ln- i
... creased Efficiency
Now is the time when the home
owner plans repairs and remodel
ling to make his home and garage
snug and tight through the winter.
Many householders are as adept
at -fixing up" and adding im-
prolvements to their property -as
they are at tuning radio sets.
Modern materials that are easily
and quickly handled help to make
them so. .. .
Wallboards, for example, have
been improved to the point at
which they are easy and quick to
put up and give fine results for
permanent construction. When
wallboards were first Introduced,
they were of highly inflammable
composition, without any insulat
ing value, likely to warp and
shrink. One of the chief objec
tions to them was that wood panel-
strips had to be applied to conceal
the joints between boards.
Then mineral wallboards were
developed big sheets -of rock,
strong enough for permanent in
stallation, vermfn-proof, 'non-
warping , They were tested and
approved as fire-resistive by the
Underwriters' Laboratories. Be
sides, because of the insulating
properties of the gypsum .frpm
which they are made, they help
keep a house warm in winter, and
cool in summer. With sueh a
material, carefully applied, panel-
strips are unnecessary.
Now ' comes the latest develop.
ment In the wallboard industry
a "reinforced joint system," which
makes seamless walls from these
materials possible, ; even when
built by the owner himself. The
principle of this system is the
same as that of reinforcing con
crete where the heaviest stresses
occur. Only, instead of steal rods
or netting, a special cloth fabric is
used. The only tool required is a
four inch putty knife.
First, a strong cement especial
ly made for this purpose is mixed
to a stiff consistency and is "but
tered with the. putty-knife into
the Joints. Then the reinforcing
tape, two inches wide, is laid on.
This is gone over with the putty
knife with enough pressure to
forct the cement through themesh
in the tape. .
Thus, the fabric is embedded in
the cement, over the seam, much
as a metal reinforcing fabric is
embedded in exterior stucco. The
nail heads are hidden by "spot
ting" them with cement. After
this .has dried it may be sandpa
pered lightly. Then the wall or
ceiling will present a strong
smooth surface to which may be
applied paint, paper, prepared
wall coverings or any other dec
oration, Including the plastic
paints which give texture as well
a color tone.
This whole operation can be
done by the home mechanic,. . It
completes the long evolution of
wallboards into the class of stan
dard building materials.

STORY OF EVIL MR. JONES
AND HIS FENCE. RELATED
(Coatiaaed from par 1.
I ln his determination to get even
with his former friend, who was
now his enemy, Jones built the
hfgh fence. He put it on his own
side of the line, but so placed as
to , shut off the light from Mr.
Brown's windows : on both the
first and second floors. It ruined
the east rooms on the first floor
which were always filled with
the choicest flowers.
This was Brown's living room.
Now it was as dark as if it had
no windows, 6hut off as it was
with rough, un pa in ted , boards.
The second story east room was
Mr. Brown's den and office. It,
too, was completely ruined.' -
But that was not all. Mrs.
Johnes and Mrs. Brown quarreled
over the new fence. Mrs. Brown
blamed her neighbor for not pre
venting Mr. Jones building it. Mrs.
Jones blamed her neighbor for al
lowing her; husband, to take the
matter into court. The young
people became estranged. The
Browns were angry at the fence
and resented the ugly rough
thing, and the Injury to their
Everybody who saw the fence
langhed at it at first and then
said, "What a pity!" The whole
neighborhood was disgraced and
the beauty of the street was mar
red. No wonder John was shock
ed when he saw it. People called
Mj. ( Jones, 'Jones- The Fence
Builder." And though his busi
ness went down: and he lost
friends, he would not take away
the fence. He would have his
own way, no matter what hap
pened, or who was hurt by it. Fi
nally, Mr. Brown: at very great
expense, cut down some beautiful
oak trees, put in a new founda
tion and moved his house over to
the other side of his lot. The
Jonse fence still stands as a wit
ness to the ill will and hatred of
