60 year old wallpaper


How do you get ride of wallpaper that was placed in 1940's? I have used the lowes kits and the wallpaper isn't coming out. I have taken out the wallpaper from the rest of the house but one wall in the master is proving to be difficult. There's one side of the wall left. Arrgghhh

Please help.
