Parents either want to see the shows themselves or want their children to see them." It IS a bad situation And yet it isn't much worse than a design for a family living room recently touted to a leading decorator. "Family life In the future." said Hie decorator, "will be centci :d nromid « bar and television set." And he rtecora'ed a room showing how "charmingly" that could be arranged. 50 that the American living room could compete with the nearest bar. To my mind, it's no worse to laKe a child to a bar to see a television show than to turn a family living room into n replica of the commercial cocktail lounge Barroom May Be Heller It may not even be quite as harmful, actually. For chances are, the youngster who is taken out to a bar to see n television show isn't going to spend every evening in that kind of atmosphere. But if his own living room Is built around a bar and television set. then he's going to spend even- Ing after evening before a television set while papa acts as bartender for any grown-up friends who happen to drop in.
