TUESDAY. FEBRUARY' 27, 19-10 BLYTI1EVILLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS BETTER HOMES FAUE Fresh Treatment of Traditional Form Residence At Cliickasaw- ba, Tcnlli Slrccls Fitted In Colonial Manner Tlie new Russell Phillips resilience at HIOO Chlckasawtw avenue is an excellent example of (lie formal Georgian colonial residences which have long been popular in (he South anil Mrs. Phillips is carryhm out the formal colonial theme in the interior with furnish- | ings to harmonize with the elabor- I ate back ground. j Erecteii on a lot made sloping, I the two slory brick and white clapboard house, witli its while lonvered shiiiters, grey ecdnr shin- ylc i-oof and tall while fence on the . rear, is landscaped wltli several I trees already on the lot making j fin attractive background for the tall house with its side sun porch and covered passageway lo the double garage with Us upstairs servant room. Shades of blue and rose were prcdomlncntly used in the interior for much color. There Is an entrance hall with a formal draw- ins; room on the easl, a dininf; loom on the west and a passage leading to the library or "back sitting room" and powder room. The breakfast, room is also on the north between the library and kitchen which is in a separate unit. On the second floor there are three bedrooms-and three bathrooms; a disappearing stairway in the hall leads to the storage space in the attic, and a stairway in the entrance hall leads 10 the game room in the basement. Here, • tlie walls and floor are of concrete with a fireplace in the coiner. In the entrance hall, one first glimpses the rounded stairway of a mahogany rail with white spindles, the rose-bed carpet (which lias another newer name, we don't know) the blue satin striped wait paper. Hie old fashioned card table and the crystal light fixture. The 13 by 23 foot drawing room has a Georgia wood mantel on the side, flanked by doors leading to the sun porch. A Georgian marble hearth and a gold tramc oblong mirror has been used to contrast the rose wall paper .and' carpeting. The English draw draperies are of flowered satin. The furniture in this room is formal colonial with a carved rosewood sofa, upholstered in rosewood brocalclle. ivilli Italian marble iop commodes lo be used at each side for French celladon lamps, two gold Victorian chairs, a grand pi- jino anil two inlaid Sheraton tables for the principal furnishings. The dining room, with Us wall paper of blue grape design, has brocaded English draw draperies in rose and the chairs have backs and seats of salin striped damask. The large chandelier of cut crystal hangs from the center of the "ceiling. Knotty pine walls in a bleached shade and a plastered ceiling were used in the Hbrury which has an entrance to the rear. Here, bookshelves with cabinets beneath, blue flowered draperies and appropriate furnishings have been placed. The poira'cr room, which is bc- Iwcen the library and drawing room, has Persian rod fixtures.' The breakfast room has pink and blue paper, decorated open shelves with a sliding cabinet door Tins small home, a variation ou (he Colonial theme, is particularly noteworthy for twn reasons of practically equal importance. First is ils simplicity and the interesting handling of detail, and second is its nominal cosl. Financed under tlie Federal Housing Administration plan, the property has a mortgage of $3,,100 which will lie repaid over .1 period of 21 years by monthly payments of approximately $21. This does not include local taxes or hazard insurance. FLOOR. PLAN bcnciilh tlie window and draw draperies of homcsnun trimmed with an embroidery Uncart braid in blue.

Robinson Lumber Co. Building Modern House The E. C. fioljinson Lumber Company Ins started n five mom house al 1324 Holly street, which is to lie in the "popular mice" class.

Drain Water From Pipes In Houses Left UnheaUd Plumbing and healing authorities advise owners uf indicated houses to drain water from plumbing fixtures, pipinj, and tanks lo prevent freezing am i damage. if wiilcr is siphoned from the i traps, they .should b= filled with a ' nonfreexiiig solution. A liquid in the traps is necessary to prevent sewer gar. from entering the house. Economics Without Sacrifice Of Sound Principle Arc Possible The .small low-cost house of today is not a large house compressed and trimmed down. FI1A officials siiy. The small house may be designed not by cleteriniiiiiii; what, can he left out of a large house but by carefully analyzing Die essential functional remiirc- ments. F1IA officials reiterate thai the principles of plan efficiency, judicious use of malcrlnls, and proper equipment, important in any class of dwellings, become paramount in the design and creation of tile modern small home. Starting with the barest necessities mid expanding as the circumstances permit, every square foot of space, every odd corner, every length of pipe, ever} 1 pipe connection, every fool of lumber that can be avoided must, bo eliminated. Care is required, however, FlfA olP.clals caution, to .see that, the efficiencies and economics will nul be obtained at the .sacrifice of sound construction or of minimum standards for convenience and comfort. |; ««»ilics With $1,000 To $2,500 Incomes Biggest M<irkcl Says McDonald l-'iimtlli'.s with uniiiinl incomi's '"iiglnu from $1,000 In $.•> SCO will ranslilule (lie bluest market far l«iwilf reslclrallnl bulletin" during no ne.vt Rnv yeius, Slcwint McDonald, l-Vderul Housing Admlnl.s- ii'alor, (old iht> umnml convention I «l (ha Nationul Concrete Masonry AMOcllllloil.
