Each individual home should be carefully studied to determine the exterior materials and trim, or combination of materials best suited to its style. One of the most noticeable improvements in the appearance of a modernized house, Is a change of roofline. Regrouping windows or adding win- downs often makes a decided improvement. The addition of shutters on certain types of homes had a tendency to make high narrow windows appear wider, and more pleasing to the eye SUGGESTED FOR 5DNDA! add charm to the exterior 6 the home. In some instances this lei accomplished by the addition of trees and shrubs. A spot or two of colorful flowers, a graded terrace, a sunken garden— a Illy ( pond or rock garden. Perhaps a trellis, a pergola or arbor. Very often an at- ractive hedge or ornamental fence can be place to advantage. Window boxes or climbing vines will give the right touch to many an exterior. The landscaping treatment depends almost entirely upon the appearance and size of the house, size of lot, situation and surroundings. - * Any one, whether he may own a cot* tage or the largest mansion can now. moderize his home by means of *> monthly payment plan that has_ been worked out and made available to Altoona home owners by "one large contractor.

NEW YORK, May 31.— The well- dressed radio this spring, like the well- dressed modern woman, fits into tne home scene in a quiet and harmonious manner. Radios are no longer novel visitors. They are part and parcel of contemporary life. As such, they take their place along with chairs, tables, sofas as regular members of the furniture family, and are housed in cabinets that follow the interior decorating scheme perfectly. The well-planned room in a home with a radio, there fore, no longer merely sticks any kind of a radio into .It., Rather, if it is a Jacobean room, there is a Jacobean cabinet for the radio; if an ultra modern room, with metal and fln wood furniture, the radio cabinet o like construction has its place. Innumerable kinds of radio cabinet are now on the market. In additio: to the general trend toward matchin the radio up to the rest of the furnl ture a second noteworthy feature ap pears. The radio cabinet serves dual purpose, often. Take a cozy corner in a man a room done in contemporary design of geometrically designed furniture, in inlaid maple, redwood and ash. By the comfortable big chair in the corner stands what looks to be a low armchair table. A modernistic lamp with colorful 'shade stands on it. So does smoking equipment and a fe\y books and magazines. It is the radio cabinet, unobtrusively standing there ready to be useful as well as musical. In a quaint, early American living room, coffee is being served from the top of a low Colonial cabinet. It Is the radio, again. In a comfortable library where books, easy chairs and rich walnut panelling call for few pieces of furniture to better show ott the room, the desk upon which the woman of the house writes her checks is the radio. Most of the new radios are compact. Some of them are made es- Decially small to lit into modern apartments. One of these, built for use in the one-room apartment, is made to nt a corner and to be used as service table for the drop-leaf breakfast and dinner table. Another, made up in the same Queen Anne design as twin beds, serves as bedside table between them, with a French telephone on it So varied and extensive is the gamut of radio cabinet designs now that they are to be had in suitable style and size for bachelor apartments for business girls' apartments, tor the most spacious and formal of countrj home rooms and. for the tiniest of city nests. Among the newest and moat moderi of radio cabinets is the one that ib painted to suit hte contemporary col ors of gay 'rooms. In a children i nursery, for instance, which has •< green lloor covering, maple furniture and gay red organdie curtaiiu, the radio is painted a lacquer red to match the curtains and is incorporated m set of play shelves which are paint ud the contrasting green of the iloor With all these different cabinet available, it really is not giving the eadio a good break to keep it an otivi uus outsider in the home. It hiyi earn ed the right to the general family .surname of the rest of the furniture See that it has the same family fea lures !
