Courier News - Friday, May ff, MM- Fift Elevta) For the Form Fomily Agriculture Dtportmtnt and University of Florida housing specialists hav* com* up with this design for a thr«i-btdroom house with the farm family specifically in mind,'but adaptable to many urban and suburban locations as wall, Three basic material combinations may be used in construction: unit masonry walls with concrete slab floor; brick veneer over wood fromt with concrete slab floor; or conventional wood 'framing over wooden floor with crawl space. •'•:- o ••e FEET Designated Plan 7167, working drawings may be obtained from state university extension agricultural engineers or by writing to the Agricultural Engineer, Federal Extension Services, Agriculture Department, Washington, D.C. 20250. Are Most Laundries Washouts? EHC News Patsy J. Cole Home Demonstration Agent Why is it that modern and convenient kitchens far outnumber well - planned and up-to date home laundry centers? Too frequently the laundry area is poorly planned, or even worse, Ebt planned at all, but merely stuck where there is just enough space for the washer and dryer. Families planning to build or buy a new home would do well to .jnake sure in advance that a "convenient laundry "center will be ready for use when they move in. And families who sire a complete and convenient laundry center in their present homes can usually have it with a miimum of expense and remodeling. Where to put the laundry center is always a big question. In some homes, it's more efficient and practical to locate the laundry center adjacent to the kitchen or bath. Unless a kitchen is quite spacious, a laundry center in the kitchen isn't always the ideal solution, because of possible conflicts between meal preparation and laundry chores. But step - saving results when the laundry center is near the kitchen. A convenient laundry center may sometime be created at one end of the recreation or family room. If desired, folding doors can conceal the area when it isn't in use. This arrangement usually works very well because ttw laundry may be done during the day when other members of the family are at work or school. And mother can keep an eye on smaller children at play in the recreation room while she does the laundry. Modern automatic clothes washers and dryers have a built-in appearance with clean trim lines. These appliances may be placed side by side along a wall, installed in a corner of a room, or face each other on opposite walls. In any arrangemtnt, today's washers and dryers don't require a lot of space. An automatic clothes dryer is a space saver in another important way because it keeps wash from cluttering up the house. Homemakers are also relieved of much ironing because so many items go straight from the dryer to drawers or closets with no pressing. Before miking a firm decision on * laundry center location, measure your present washer and dryer, or check the dimensions of ones you may be planning to buy. For best working conditions, you should have space in front of these appliances at least equal to the ara occupied by the washer an ddry- er. Where washer'and'dryer are side by side, have a. space at least three feet, six inches deep in front of them. If washer and dryer are placed opposite each other, allow for a space of at least four feet between .them. Whenever washer and dryer are not side by said/or opposit to each other, allow three feet six inches of space in front of each appliance. •' ' Modern automatic washers and clothes dryers are basic in any laundry center, but is far 4rom complete even with tba THE IDEAL THEE—Touted as the "perfect shade tree," the Bradford ornamental pear tree originally found in China before World War I has been adapted to U.S. climates after long research by the Agriculture Department. To publicize the development, Mrs. Lyndon Johnson plants a tree on the department grounds with Agriculture Secretary Orvffle Freeman, among others^ looking on. At right, trees in full blossom line a street in University Park, Md., where over 200 trees have been test planted. The tree produces white blossoms in spring, silvery green leaves in summer and crimson foliage in autumn. The nonedible fruit attracts birds but is so- small that it presents no litter problem. The Bradford pear tree is now available to homeowners from nurseries in several states.
