Actually the big window is the most eye-catching feature for it will allow all kinds of wonderful things to oe aone to ic. Book-nooks or gadget shelves are built-in on either side of the door leading to the hall. Yes, we have a separate dining room in this plan and it has one huge window opening onto the back porch as well as a smaller one on the side. The kitchen is unusally attractive for the work area is built around one corner (note the cute little window over the sink) and there is another small bay. If I were building this, I'd put those cute leather seats around under the window, use a circular table and have me a brunch nook. This is a personal whimsy, however. A small door leads to t h e aforementioned back porch. There is another small door leading to the full basement .and one that leads to the central hallway. Let's explore the _ latter a bit. Past the small broom closet we turn into the sleeping area. But let's stop a minute and inspect the bath. This room is well arranged with the tub to one side and not under the window (as so often we see it). Beside the tub is a built-in shower to take care of the rugged males of the family who prefer one. Personally, I love to loll in a tub of steaming hot water —but to each his own. A small towel cupboard is handily nearby and the sheet and blanket department is provided space in the hall linen closet.. Eliminates crowding and 'confusion, y'know. The smaller bedroom is not too small at that and has two windows for cross ventilation and a large wardrobe closet with sliding doors. (Love that closet!) The front bedroom is positively huge (by comparison with the ones in my present home) and it, too, has cross ventilation and a tre- Barbs &y HAL COCHRAN The way of a man with a maid often depends on whether or not his wife is in the i m m e d i- ate vicinity.

It won't be a big one but it will work out nicely for either a sleeping room or sewing or play quarters. THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Sunday Morning, September 7,1952.

Both men wooed their brides-to- be for many months by mail before meeting them in person. Now both want'leave October 4 to get married and go on a honeymoon. FLOOR PL.'.N By PEN 7 NY HAZELL I have many times .wondered how many of the thousands of sets of plans that I've mailed out in the past two years were used for actual building and how many for, dreaming. In these doubtful times however, I believe I am getting an answer to my question. The inter est in a dreamy set of blueprints that will sooner or later (depending on the crisis) materialize in a perfect home is absolutely unflagging. If anything, I believe that more and more of my readers want to own these prints to prove to themselves that they believe in the future — completely and whole j heartedly. j You can't get a good American down! Doesn't this prove it? Well, today's plan is typical o f tlie type that seems to be eve r popular with you all. It is made of brick and trimmed with white wood siding used vertically. It gives the appearance of solid comfort so dear to our hearts and of j course an outstanding feature is the bay window with the built - in planting box. The interior is a dream of compact liveability with .room for expansion if and when desired. The front entry is quite large and there is a small coat closet to the right. This entry develops into the main artery of the house allowing passageway to the front door from almost every room. The living room is a very spa- VENETIAN BLINDS Dress Up Tour Windows With Venetian Blinds • WOOD •STEEL • ALUMINUM Custom made to fit your windows. We also paint, tape and rope old blinds.
