LM MHfc CMN., M., Ft». N, IN INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-T£LEGRAM (PMJ--B-7 Plastic furniture · will be the \ ' · i i \ in way of ," living for residents of the space age--or we may even perch in trees. We may live in plastic dwelling pods very soon There's a new kind of living ahead for residents of the space age, according to ihe leading Southern California home furnishings designers. In the words of designer .lorry Johnson, "The individual will create his own environmental cave or security zone within Ihe confines of a concrete cubicle." The cubicle, he believes, will bn within "a concrete tree-bearing plastic dwelling pods as fruit. "Throwaways will be coming into their own in home furnishings," Johnson continues. "For example, how about 'zap, pop, and wow' throwaway drapes in the new plastic and paper materials used for "paper" dresses? Removable plastic panels for 'wall breaks' . . . or large, brightly colored canvases for contemporary walls. "THE PHYSIOLOGICAL, psychological, and sociological needs of the NOW people must be considered by both the furniture designers and the manufacturers," he concludes. Other designers agree with Johnson's interest in plastics. Their use, just being initiated on a commercial scale, will be wide- spread. According to Herbert Ritts. there will be "a lot of clear plastic furniture used with rattan, wood, or metal. This combination makes small apartment rooms seem larger. Also, clear plastic is easy to keep clean . . . appealing to Ihe har- rassed honiemaker who is having problems finding good cleaning women." With plastic furniture, ihe designers see a new type of interior -- with vinyl walls, suggests James W. Kelso, or, predicts Don Walton, natural cork walls. Cork will be a popular floor covering, according to Steward MacDougall, who will combine it with white draperies and natural wood finishes (and fiberglass furniture). Tadao E. Inouye, a highly-respected Southern California furniture designer, says "The modern movement is definitely on. Thn Italian imports should inspire us to further develop our own image throughout the world. 'MOVE' IS the dynamic, force of the 70's. We speak of the generation gap. the. attitude of our youngsters, the casualness, the Mod mood . . . all of this has some effect on what will be happening in Ihe next decade.

To make gravy quickly, put some flour in a custard cup or a foil pie pan when roasting meat in the oven. The flour browns slowly as the roast cooks. If it is put in the oven at the same time as the roast, it will be brown evenly and make a rich brown gravy when the meat is done. ·- \ J a c k e t and skirt, 28.00 Join the S l i n k s t e r s in Celanese* A r n e T t r i a c e t a t e .
