Home Features Long, Low Lines—3 Bedrooms Accident Hazards Broken glass, tin cans, and bottles, whether empty or containing residual poisons or unwanted medicines, constitute serious accident hazards. So, to keep such trash out of sight of and away from curious children while it is awaiting collection, safety officials advise that it be stored in tightly- covered galvanized steel cans in stead of in open boxes or other containers. and see that either that particular color or a lighter or darker color of it is used on each of the sides of the room. If you are using draperies, they may serve as a keynote for developing the rhythm in color. DESIGN NO. H 191 E Bluiprlnlt of this homt aft aYailabl* through our Association. Fit Your BUDGET * ..

The man who a generation ago would have been satisfied with a plain square house has now seen examples of what can be done in designing a neat, convenient and roomy cottage. The plan here shown is of a 3- bedroom house, modern and convenient in every respect. The three bedrooms are over average size and conveniently located wtih the roomy bath room. Each bedroom has a large closet with sliding doors, and there are three additional closets opening from the hall. The kitchen is roomy and thoroughly equipped with sink, stove, refrigerator and numerous cupboards, and a 9x10 dinette space. The living room is entered from a small front porch through! a central hall. j. Considers Economy j If desired for economy, this haili could be eliminated and the living! room entered direct from the | porch, thus reducing the width ofj the house 3Va feet, and the totals coverage by over a hundred square feet. j A 7 -foot basement extends under j the whole house, containing heating and laundry equipment and ample space for storage and recreation. Across the 8-foot breezeway is a 12x22-foot garage.
