Do White Streaks Appear in
(Copyright, 1920. By the .Wheeler
The white, streaked appearance
of plaster is due to the fact that
the joists or beams are compara
tively close to the surface in these
spots and that while the air has
filtered through the wall, deposit
ing its dust and dirt while so do
doing, the portion of the plaster
touching the beams is protected
from this process of filtration
and retains its natural white
Frofesscjr N. B. Webster ex
plains this by saying: "The
white streaks on plastered ceil
ings, often noticed in churches
and halls, are always just under
beams or joists, the intermediate
spaces being darkened by deposits
of dust in the air which have fil
tered up through the porous plas
ter on the lathes. The beams,
however, obstruct the passage of
the air, so the plaster on the other
sidp of them is not colored. It
should be remembered that a
plaster ceiling, being quite porous,
is a strainer for the air which is
constantly passing through it
when the air on the opposite side
is not of the same temperature."
