FMalm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 3, 18 Traditional Exterior Design Has Unusual Interior In this dt'sit;ii, aichitect Herman H. Voik has incorporated a feature that jjiu-s an attuc-live and somi-whal dramatic touch to tvvii of the principal rooms in the house the living room and the family room. Both are two sli ps up from the rest of the rooms on the first floor. And both have cathedial ceilings, unusual in a two-family house. The high ceilings have been made possible because only a roof is found above them, an arrangement which is deldoin seen. The second floor has been placed over the kitchen, dining room and garage, leaving the living and family rooms in their own one -story wing. Another advantage of this layout Is that, from the front, the house appears to be b2' long, rather than 42' plus a garage. And the one-story wing cannot be mistaken for a garage because of its large, charming bay window. A look tfJ gggggw?1;:,!1'!. 1 '" " ------ j? Sj Even the most ardent advo-' cate of a traditional house exterior is aware that the public will accept nothing less than the best In modern design on the inside. This is a natural demand, since the interior must be compatible with the current manner of living as well as the new styles in materials and fabric patterns, Innovations in floor and ceiling coverings, the clean lines of kitchen appliances and the like. Z-C5 at Ihe artist's rendering shows more clearly than words the visual benefit of the plan. The living room has plenty of wall space for arranging furniture as desired. The family room Ls toward the rear, for direct access to patio dining and entertaining. There is a fireplace with a full brick wall and a built-in log bin. And the two-step rise with Its adjacent railing gives the Impression of a balcony overlooking the kitchen-dinette area. The dining room is completely separate, to the left of the foyer, a plan becoming Increasingly popular with many housewives. The kitchen oversees the rear and ties directly into the laundry lavatory area and the two-car garage. A dinette v. ith large windows also looks out on the back terrace and garden. The garage is big enough to accommodate the largest of cars, plus a sizable stoiage nook for garden equipment and tools. On Ihe second floor are four bedrooms. One is planned to allow it to be used as the owners' sitting room by placing a door Iv tweeii it and the main bedroom. In the latter are a priv ate bath and vanity, a linen closet and two walk-In closets. The hall bathroom has a double sink. BI fold doors are indicated for all closets to give full opening width. Brick is used at the lower part of the house, horizontal DISGUISED GARAGE - The garage In this four-bedroom house is hidden behind two windows at the lower left. The one-story wing at the right, with its attractive bow-window, houses the living room and family room, thus permitting both to have cathedral ceilings. 1 RAISED FAMILY ROOM - The vk",v from the dinette looking across and trrough the decorative railing to the raised family room, with brick fireplace and door, at left, I ead hit,' t i the terrace.

KOVEL The sewing machine was one of the most important Inventions of the 19th century. It was Invented several times before the public realized its value. A mechanical genius from New York, Walter Hunt, invented a version of the sewing machine about 1832. He was unimpressed with the Idea and never ever had it patented. Other Inventors developed machines for the same important job during the 1840s. Ellas Howe Jr., John Bradshaw, Charles McRey and Joseph Hohnson all held patents on Ihe sewing machine.. It was not until I. M. Singer and his company engaged in patent tights with Howe and his companies that the scramble for the invention became a public pioblem. The sewing machine changed the world of the 19th century, but only a few of the men who developed It became licit. O. Is It true that old Wedgwood is smoother than the 20th century pieces? A. Old Wedgwood, Jasper and Black Basalt, has worn smooth through the years. This "baby's bottom" feel to the polteiy ls one of the signs of age to the advanced collector. It is desired In all Wedgwood Jasper. The Buten museum of Wedgwood suggests that the "smooth finish can also be obtained by a light sanding with 400 A wet or dry trimite paper made of silicon carbide. The paper might leave a white dust, but It can be removed with fine oil or a black paste shoe polish. Modern Wedgwood stoneware Is polished at the factory with a sand blast technique that uses glass beads. It Is not as smooth as the older, worn, pieces.

New lamps are expensive and you shouldn't i'lgure on throwing an old ore out just because it L'iN to li;:ht. And If one is flickering, it is not only annoying but hazardous. Defective lamps can be repaired easily and they should be repaired quickly so that hoy do not cause fire hazards. Aside from the fancy base and shade, floor and table lamps are basically the same, electrically speaking. There are three parts where you can look for trouble (assuming the bulb Is all right) the plug, the cord and the socket, which has a built-in switch. mis CONDOMINIUM APARTMENTS Ocean & Waterway views 2 bedroom 2 full baths $11,600 to $20,700 Boat dockage at your back door.

I have a 17th century chocolate pot labeled "Maria-go." It Is porcelain with floral decorations. Is that an early chocolate pot? A. Columbus brought the first cocoa beans to Spain in 1492. It was not until ir.19 that the Spaniards drank chocolate in Mexico. The drink was bitter and the Europeans added sugar to improve the flavor. The cooks in Spain soon discovered that cinnamon and vanilla also helped the laste, and the decision to serve It hot made chocolate a popular drink. , The secret of chocolate was kept In Spain until 1657 when the first English chocolate house appeared. It was not until about 17.30 that chocolate dropped In price so that It could become the drink of the average man. The American colonies had Its first chocolate In 1765. Chocolate pots of silver or porcelain for use in the home were not pouplar until the end of the 18th century. Your pot, with the name "Marlago" was probably made during the late 19th century.

The problem is that the plug is not making good contact in the outlet. Try bending the prongs apart for a frimer grip in the outlet. Check the terminal screws to make certain that the wires are not loose or off altogether. Sometimes prongs will work loose, or terminal screws will not hold. If the plug Is the root of these problems or Is doubtful In any way, replace It. Remove the old plug, either by unscrewing Ihe terminal screws or by cutting the wire just above the plug. If the wire Is badly frayed or if many of the fine copper wires are broken off, cut the plug and that end of the wire away and start with a fresh end of wire. If the cord Is f,dn !e overed.

If It is the flat rubber-covered kind, then pull apart about two Inches of wire so that you have two spearate strands. Then strip off about a half Inch of Insulation from each wire. Do not cut through the wire Itself. Thread both parts of the cord through the plug and tie a knot so that It will not pull back through Ihe plug. Loop each strand of wire around one of the prungs and then wrap the exposed strands clockwise around the nearest terminal screw. Hare wires should nol touch each other nor the promts, nor should they stick out trnm under the screws. For the thin rubber coveied wires there are plugs that require no stripping of wires, no connecting to terminal screws. The prongs open up, Ihe wire is run into the plug and the prongs are squeezed closed. Barbs on Ihe prongs pierce the w ire, making contact. Any lamp cord that shows signs of damage, fraying, breaking, etc., should be replaced. If Ihe lamp flickers on and off when the cord is moved, there is a hidden break in the cord. Replace It.
