UGLY POINTS MAY BE HIDDEN
Permanent Fixtures, Such as Fence
and Clothes Posts, Should Be
Made Things of Beauty.
The most noticeable permanent fea
tures of the backyard, which is the
usual place for the city garden, are
the fence and the clothes posts. They
remain prim and uncompromising,
while shrubs flourish and flowers
bloom and after the leaves have with
?ered and fallen.
The garden magazines advise mass
ing shrubs on the fences, letting vines
climb the clothes posts or stringing
wire netting for nasturtiums to climb
npon. This is well in summer, but
when the leaves have fallen and the
naked fence is again exposed, the
dragging vines blow in the wind, and
,'netting and all fall in an uncomely
lieap together unless the careful gar
dener removes them. At any rate the
fence and the posts can only be cov
lered with foliage and bloom during a
The solution of the difficulty then

?ugly and permanent features, things
iOf beauty. A fence may be made of
such a pattern as not to be offensive
!to the eye, and if it is possible to have

support for vines unless one desires
The posts, too, may be placed in
inconspicuous positions. They may be

These two difficulties iisposed of,

ERECT NOVEL DANGER SIGNS
Motorists Think Checkerboard Warn
ings Will Attract the Eye of the
Checkerboard signs have been erect
led in Columbus, 0., as danger signals.
Certain street intersections and the
narrow parkways in the center of wide
fares have been
the scenes of nu
merous motor ac
cidents, and these
of black and
white squares ar
ly, have been set
up as warnings
at these places.
They bear no In
scription except a
(statement that they were installed by
Ithe Columbus Automobile club.
It is believed that the checkered
pattern will attract the eye readily and
soon will come to be recognized by all
as an emblem of danger. The city i
has promised to equip them with red
lights. The signs measure three by
Co-operation in Planning.
If one town succeeds in relocating '
or depressing or elevating a railroad,
the adjacent towns have to plan to
conform. If a railroad station is lo
cated near the border of a town the
nearby streets and car lines in the
next town are altered to fit. A good
:park on the ed;:e of one community
?has a strong influence on the park sit
uation of the adjacent community.
Bad housing "Just over the line" brings
up serious planning problems. Differ
ent planning laws and restrictions in
towns which border on one another
give rise to all sorts of complications
?and unfairness. Of two towus side by
side, where one is conscientiously in
terested in the appearance of its
?Streets and buildings and the other is
not. the latter soon finds itself at a
.considerable disadvantage. Everything
,1s to be gained by co-operation in plan
ning. Waste is bound to ensue with
Parks for All the People.
The parks belong to all the people
and should be so conducted that all will
feel that a genuine welcome and vari
ety of entertainment, comfort and
pleasure await them in every park.
They should be made so attractive to
>the general populace that hundreds
will flock there to where row the Indi
vidual "flocks" in loneliness. Some
parks are planned and planted as
though they possessed cn attitude, one
of extreme austerity, seeking to over
Awe the visitor and curb his natural
exuberance. These cold and Uninvit
ing, inhospitable parks should have in
troductions of bright flowers, tennis
Icourts, swings, teeter-boards, saud
boxes, seats, arbors, picnic grounds,
music, etc., and thereby become at
tractive to their owners-the public
Using Walls and Fences.
~~ More use should be made of walls
and fences in small gardens. It is not
always necessary that either orna
mental or fruiting plants should be In
the open or clear of structures. Not
.alone ornamental vines, but also fruit
ing vines and shrubs may be trained
in fan shape or flat against walls cov
ered with mesh wire. Used in this
way even melon and cucumber vines
become ornamental and do splendid
service as short-season screens.
