DAY, JULY 7, me BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEW?' " ','. PA.QE THREE Individualistic Kitchen Should Receive Consideration in Planning of Any New House A garage Is almost as necessary in the ulan of a house nowadays ns a kitchen or living room. There nre few fajnilies lii homes of their own who do not have cars, so the garage has Tiecome a major problem In planning and designing . houses of nil sixes. The first question thnt comes up is where to put the garage. Shall it be detached; shall it be connected by n porch; or shall it. be! an integral part of the hou.se? When automobiles' first came into vogue, the garage was sluck in the back or.the lot where the stable used to be; and perhaps the fear of fire had something to do with placing It there, too. Liter, as this tear decreased, It was hooked onto the house by a porch or as an extension. Usually it was placed in an inconspicuous position, still resembling the poor relation. Dut lately architects have recognized the fact that it is part of the house and arc designing it as such. And they .place its door as near the street as possible, uoth .to shorten the necessary driveway and to keep the rear of the place dear for development. There is also the matter of keeping it heated in Winter. A garage should be deep enough to accommodate a car comfortably without having to gauge the distance by inches, and it. should be wide enough to allow free passage on at least one side of the car. Where possible, it is advisable to add a few feet In one direction to accommodate a work . bench, In cellarlcss houses, an additional fcot or two provides a space for rough storage. 'Hie door should be of a type that can be easily operated both from wllhtn and without. It is not 'necessary to fireproof ' the inside of the garage unless the code demands it, but it Ls advisable to do so if possible. For wherever- inflammables are stored there Is always the possibility of nre. so precautions should be taken. You: may"-fireproof your present property with funds obtained un- der- tlie terms of the Modernization Creilit Plan of the Federal Houring Administration.

In remodeling an old house, one house-wife found her opportunity. The room 1iad papered walls originally, and wide board floors. It had been an addition to the house, and one wall, originally the back of the house, was of brick. When t'ne family bought tlie house, a loan for the rcp.air and modernization of the home was obtained from a private financial institution i-hich held n contract of insur- nce with the Federal Housing Administration. White oak was used for building n a series of closets and cup- loards, giving the effect of paneled walls. A small amount of wall Aluminum Paint Deflects Heat of Summer Sun Research has shown that lo a large extent .the heat in n home in summer is due lo radiant heat from tlie sun. Simple means by which a considerable amount of this heating effect of the sun may be retarded arc the use of awnings, window shades which are coated with aluminum foil .or aluminum paint on the side exposed to • the snn, or by the use of Venetian blinds, the outside of the slals being painted with aluminum paint. By exposing metallic siirfaces to the sun, the - radiant heat' is reflected lo a sufficient degree to produce added summer comfort • When coated shades or Venetian blinds. arc used, the windows should always be opened slightly, preferably at top and bottom, to allow for a small amount of ventilation. .

This was covered wltli a paper' having a street scene design, and added a bright note ol color. The original floors were left Intact, as was the pne brick wall. A corner cupbpqrd" was built for glassware, nnrt next' fo II y, p as a closet for brooms and mijps. A new sink was completely enclosed with the oak shelves and cnbineLs. Casement windows were placed over tlie sink, v/nere one' small window Imd been before, central lighting was used. ' ".' ' . . Dr. N. L.

Tills course was planned at the local office of the Federal Housing. Administration and includes the drawing up of plans and specifications for homes in a price range of IH.OOO to $8,500.
