Focal Point WATERFRONT CONDOMINIUM APARTMENTS MLY By VIRGINIA THORBAH.N In most American households today, plans and preparations are under way for the observance of our cherished holiday, Thanksgiving. Details which may have received little attention during the past months now assume greater importance as the spotlight of family entertaining is focused on the dining room. In the distinguished colonial hoases of Early American, whether the furnishings were simple or grand, the dining rooms were carefully and artistically furnished down to the most minute accessory. Many of the rustic or stone hoases had huge, walk-in fireplaces in the dining room. Kows of polished pewter tankards and plates adorned the massive mantels. Polished copper pots and ladles were functional as well as decorative. Table cloths were brightly colored fringed homespun, resembling bedspreads. Kmpire furnishings were popular in some of the houses which had paneled, painted and papered walls. Rosewood chairs with seats covered in red velvet or brocade accompanied tables polished to a minor-like sheen. the woodwork, doors, mantels, cornices and moldings often were painted a different color than the walls. Sometimes even floors were painted to match rich green woodwork which was contrasted against lemon yellow walls. Mirrors, clocks and crystal sconces decorated the walls. Venetian blinds, which many of us think of erroneously as modem, frequently hung at windows which were elaborately draped and swagged in satins and brocades. Dining tables sometimes were formed of three or four separate units. A center drop-leaf table joined by two oval end pieces could be extended totorm a massive piece seating as many as twenty-four guests. Four Chippendale tilt-top pedestals combined to make a flexible seating arrangement. No matter what the size of the area which houses your dining facilities, the true spirit of hospitality shining forth can make your dining room the focal point of your home this Thanksgiving time. Mrs. Thorbahn will be glad to answer your decorating questions in this column or to feature your Focal Point ideas.

IUUUUIJU oooooq OOOOOQ Dining room accessories were as fine as those used in living rooms and drawing rooms. Good paintings, which frequently formed the basis for room color schemes, were used abundantly. Ornate silver bowls, tureens and candelabra graced cabinets and table tops. Waterford glass and Chinese porcelains decorated mantels and sideboards. Hepplewhite tables were set with ornate, ellistical mirrored centerpieces from France. Fruit, flowers, candlesticks and compotes formed still-life works of art.

The music, he says, is "a fusion of gospel and rhythm and blues, with a little rock, a little Latin." Their message can be gathered by looking at them since some members of the group are black and some are white and by lyrics like "Hate the Bite" which Sly Stone wrote for their second Epic album. "Dance to the Music": "Don't hate the black "Don't hate the white "If you get bit "Just hate the bite." When Stone was a disk jockey, he worked for a rhythm and blues station. Even then, he didn't play only Negro artists, or even only rhythm and blues records. By MARY CAMPBELL AP Newsfeatures Writer Sly Stone, who gave up playing other people's records on the radio to form a group and make records of his own, thinks church music is becoming an increasingly big influence in pop music. He says, "Some people don't want to admit that they enjoy church songs. But I think that , is changing, f think the whole church scene is moving closer to everything. There's nothing wrong with feeling religious out of church feeling the spirit. "Aretha Franklin does that. And her father, the Rev. C. L. Franklin, preaches the best. He has at least 12 albums out and they're really good sermons. If he started doing the blues he's best B."B. King." Sly Stone's parents both play piano and they took their children to church a lot. So when Sly Stone got tired of being a San Francisco disk jockey a year and a half ago mi JOIU1 I VAC. IN OUR FINAL BUILDING IN LAKESIDE POINT GARDENS URRENTIUS "The show I had was successful, so I was able to play other records that I liked. I played the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Mose Allison, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles. "All the people that I got to hear Dylan, and other people that I think are saying things, always dug them after they heard them. They don't come on as strong as some r and b artists and you can't necessarily dance to them. A lot of the r and b audience doesn't care what you're singing if they can dance to it. But anybody I could hold for a minute and turn on to Dylan always liked him. The first Sly and the Fanily Stone album on Kpic used their name as the title. The third. "Life." is getting good reviews. And in August, the group broke attendance records at the Electric Circus in New York. Stone says, "I think the capacity there is 729 and in five days there were 10.000 people in there. One night 3,500 were trying to get in." They're invited back for two weeks in February. It's fun to be appreciated by the underground, Stone says, but he has an older sister in California who has a good, high-paying job, and "We're all following her example really. We're just trying to do it musically. LJW.III'iHiimi.imiHI.'lU.H!BJH:II.II J INSURANCE TEL 833-6673 IMMEDIATE OCCUPANCY! Including 4 Completely Furnished Apts.
