The opulent look is back and one way to get it is to dress up the background of rooms, a trick that-may be used by those who must watch pennies as well as those with fat pocketbooks. A dramatic or ingenious treatment of walls may accomplish elegance with one simple stroke. A little bit even of a good thing like a special wallpaper may give a 20-year-old sofa or chair ft new lease on life. But whatever is chosen for the background should be special for one reason or another. If the furniture is traditional, the wall pickup should match the period or at least be in harmony with it. If the furnishings are contemporary, one should be especially aware of the wall treatment that will pull off the effect you seek. Samsh accents, long used by many interior designers for traditional rooms, include elegant backgrounds achieved with wallpaper panels. A dramatic paper is inserted in an area de- lined with molding to create a panel. Some interior designers paint molding and wall surfaces the same color as the background of the paper. Other designers prefer to paint walls in the hue of the pattern. Or pattern is combined with solid color papers that match the background. Interior designer Elizabeth Matthews did 2 walls in a corner of a room in a beautiful large - scale red pattern on white, a traditional design taken from the house in which lived John Jay, the first chief justice of the United States. She set the handsome wallpaper in to panels on the walls, painting the molding white and using s dark red silk textured wallpa per to match the red in the design on the surrounding wal area. If rooms lack architectural de tailing, and it is desirable apply molding, yourself. It can be bought at a lumber shop in the width desired. If dimensions of the panel areas are supplied to lumber dealers, they will cui it to fit, and miter the molding so it may be put up to outline the panels. One may wish to do an entire wall of panels. Or a closet dooi in a foyer or hall with the sur rounding area papered o painted in a background color To achieve a striking entrance hall, Miss Matthews used a three - quarter • inch gray am white striped paper on a door and walls, around it, contrast ing it with black trim and nat ural wood tones in furniture Baseboards, door frame and the edge of recessed panels were painted black.

A floor-to-ceiling bookcase, with cabinets along the bottom, will give your living room or den a niw look. All tho materials nooded to make this are avail* able at Wickes Lumber and Building Supply Center at Port Washington, which carries 3,000 items in plumbing, heating, electrical and lumber products. Unused Wall Is* Not A Liability Contrary to popular belief, a arge unused wall is not a liabil- ty—if it is used right. Decorators no longer believe that a sofa must be placed along ev- !ry available wall. Instead, sit- ing corners of occasional chairs and hassocks are considered referable these days. At the same time, a homeowner can solve his storage >roblems for books, record al- >ums and other household items by constructing a handy floor- o-ceiling shelf and storage unit. It can be painted either to match the walls, or stained for contrast. All materials needed are available at Wickes Lumber and Building Supply Center near Port Washington, which carries more than 3,000 items in heat ng, plumbing, electrical and lumber products. Here are the simple steps for building such a unit: (l)-Nail a l-by-2-inch lath into the floor parallel to the panel, long triangles with stripes going crosswise were fitted with points meeting in the exact center of the door. Empty spaces were then filled with wallpaper triangles cut with stripes running vertically. The frame of the panel was covered with horizontal stripes on the sides, vertical stripes top and bottom. To complete the picture, a large ornamental door-pull was placed where all stripes come together. wall, sixteen inches away from it. This becomes a sill. (2)-Divide the sill into four or more sections, depending on he wall. At each point, nail serpendicular sills into the floor Between the long sill and the wall itself. (3)—Repeat the process on the ceiling, nailing the sills into ceiling beams. If the beams do not correspond to the pattern, use molly or toggle bolts for secure fastening. (Caution: Remove floor and ceiling moldings before measuring and attaching sills. Use a plumb line to make sure that top sill is directly above floor framing.) (4)—Toe-nail 16-inch shelving vertically atop the cross-sills and support them with L-brackets secured to the long sills. (5)—Place a 16-inch-wide shelf across the vertical members to complete the lower cabinet portion. At this point, cabinet doors can be-made and installed with ordinary hinges and suitable hardware. Interior shelving can also be installed by nailing small blocks of wood to the vertical members and resting 14- inch shelves on them. There's a wide variety of lumber for all these items at the Wickes Center. (6)—Connect the cabinet top to the ceiling sills with 16-inch verticals. Use toe-nailing on top, L-brackets on the shelf below. (7)—The arrangement of the made n a oulc In equip abin entilation be provided. This can ie dene by means of louverec lanels in front.

(AP)"Tell daddy to get out here quick," said the excited young voice of Donna Muller, 17, into the telephone. "There are kids cut and bleeding all over the place." Dr. C. D. Muller thus was one of the first to reach the hillside near the city's edge where a school bus rolled over Monday afternoon, Injuring about 30 of the 67 high school students it was returning to their homes. None was hurt critically and school Supt. Bud Winderl said he believed not more than 15 were hospitalized. Most seriously hurt were three with broken arms or shoulders, suffered when they were tossed about as the bus rolled 71 feet down an embankment. In the group was Jan West era, about 17, an exchange student from the Netherlands, who suffered a cut over one eye. The state patrol said driver James H. Cobb told officers he pulled to the shoulder of the road as a city bus approached. The wheels of the school bus slipped into a drainage ditch, and Cobb said he was unable to maneuver the vehicle back on the road. Cobb said the bus rolled once, then half over again. Dr. Muller said his daughters, Donna and Pam, 15, thought it was three times. "They said they were all over the place," he reported, "first on the side and then on the rool and then on the floor." "They were pretty calm,' said Winderl. "It's amazing how kids that age can measure up They were helping each other out of the overturned bus ane showed no signs of panic."
