Settlers Plan Picnic Greene The old settlers' reunion will be held Sunday, Oct. 2, at the Church of Christ in Greene at 2:30 p. m. instead of at Hall's Grove church, as in previous years. Ranch Plank Flooring Is Developed Ranch plank flooring was developed especially for use in the popular ranch style house. However, architects and interior decorators are suggesting it \v i t h equal enthusiasm for modern homes, traditional types a n d apartments. "With alternate widths, beveled edges and walnut pegs, it gives an effect similar to expensive random width floors, and it is particularly suited ffir all quaint Colonial and provincial styles. In modern rooms the oak grain and varied widths are a pleasing contrast to plain fabrics and functional furniture. Use Scatter Rugs It is the type of floor that looks well with scatter rugs, room size rugs and no rugs at all. Finished in a soft, medium tone, it blends with any color scheme —even hard-to-match reds. It is rich and mellow, forming a perfect background for the lighter colors of modern furnishings or the darker shades of traditional. • ; ' . Easily Installed Completely finished at the fac- . tory—including wanut pegs which are made a part of the floor, this distinctive hardwood floor costs no more - than commonly used* strip flooring and it is just as easily installed. The factory applied finish will not scatch, chip or wear away like ordinary finishes of varnish and shellac. It is an ynproved penetrating seal that is baked into the pores of the wood to resist traffic and abuse. This type of finish brings out the natural beauty of the wood and makes it easier to maintain. Births Reported Greene—Births at the Riverview hospital were as follows: Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hoodjer, a son, Sept. 16; Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Allen, a son, Sept. 18; Mr. and Mrs. Earl Quackenbush, a son, Sept. 18.
