Sees Many Changes- In Furniture 4 By JOY MILLER NEW YORK (AP)-Getting to like plastic chairs that look tubular, tortured or like diseased mushrooms? Then stick around. The next decade or two are for you. John Van Koert, one of the country's eminent designers, predicts new shapes, forms'and functions in furniture in the next 10 to 15 years, dictated by kinds of material available. Fine woods are disappearing, he points out, and in a few years furniture will be made of plastics or metal, with wood used only for decorative purposes. "The whole domestic architecture will 1x2 different," says Van Koerl. "Rooms will not be bedrooms, dining rooms and so forth, as we know them. People will live all over a house, which will be subdivided according to needs. There will be no dead areas. Everything will be more convertible. More folding furniture will be used, and sliding screens. Beds will fold away. Most things can be put away right after you've finished using them." Van Koert expects the new furniture to be loss expensive. "We're going to having an economic breakthrough in furniture when the industry gets really industrialized. As in terms of the metals industry, for example, the furniture industry isn't industrialized. It still has hand work. I like hand work, but it's expensive and in this case it's not expression of individual artistry but merely that there's no machine to do the work." Ike Library Is Completed ABILENE, Kan. (AP) - Construction of the $3 million Eisenhower presidential library is completed and installation of furnishings and equipment is beginning. The general contractor, Dod- linger & Son Construction Co. of Wichita, is in the process of turning the building over to the state through the Eisenhower Library Commission. Later the state will turn it over to the federal government for operation and maintenance. The dedication is set for May 1. Robert Bolton, acting library director, said the library may not CHILDREN of Mr. and Mrs. David Griffin, 714 E. 8th, arc David Kent, 7 (top), Richard, 15 months, and Wanda 5.

Five persons are working through 2,000 cartons and files, sorting and classifying papers of President Dwight Eisenhower's administration. Bolton said there is more material to come. The library is across the street from the Eisenhower Museum on a 13-acre site adjoining Eisenhower's boyhood home. Crop Failure In Kazakhstan MOSCOW (AP)—The Soviet Union has disclosed a virtual crop failure in Kazakhstan and the virgin lands. This may have a considerable effect upon both domestic and international policies. Pravda reports that delegates to a Communist party meeting in the central Asian republic "spoke with great uneasiness about the fact that this year Kazakhstan cannot give the state much grain." JFK Signs Bill, With Reluctance WASHINGTON (AP)-President Kennedy has signed into 1 a w "with extreme reluctance" a bill containing the remains of his aid to education program. The measure: (1) extends for two years the program of aid for school districts crowded with children of federal personnel and (2) continues for two years the National Defense Education Act. The former, known as the impacted areas program, carries about $300 million a year in U.S. grants. The Defense Education Act, which provides loans to college students and aids to teaching of science, mathematics and foreign languages, has been costing about ?250 million a year. It was all Congress granted the President of the ambitious federal aid to education program he proposed this year.

The chemist, Wells Alan Webb of Berkeley, Calif., said that because the canals raise the possibility of a prior civilization, any attempt to send manned expedi- tios to Mars should be preceded by unmanned probes that could day, Oct. 9. Plans were started for a penny supper for Oct. 24. Dr. and Mrs. Alvin Melcher and children completed their visit at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Lawrence and left by plane Sat- urdav for their home at Wynnewood, Pa.

Webb, an official of Hexcel Products Inc., said a flight near Mars would give accurate pictures of the canal netwoYks, but not enough other information. He said a second kind of probe should be adopted to give out strong signals and to monitor the radio spectrum of Mars. If signals or some other action come from Mars in response, he said, they could be relayed to earth by radio, and a study of the signals could lead to the establishment of two-way communication. An unmaned device to test surface reactions also should precede a manned landing, Weeb said. Webb said that if all nations would join to send to Mars an expedition of men and women, and to keep it regularly supplied, the colonists could establish an artificial society with the sun as the primary source of energy. People, animals and growing plants would be sustained in an oxygen-enriched atmosphere inside pressurized greenhouses, he said. Harry Says . . . Can You STOP!
