Inrerior Design Emphasized in Home Planning If you are modern, you will .start planning your home from the inside. I That's the latest word from home i builders. | There was a Mine when major at- j .cntlon was given to the external appearance or the house and the In- j terior was made to conform. Today i the procedure Is reversed. j As a result, interior finishes for ; walls and ceilings are being given more consideration. Paint, and paper arc .still popular, hut Interior dceo- •alors report they have lots of competition. Glass areas, for example sometimes play a dominant role. Walls with fixed panel windows running i' from floor to celling, or a picture window with a large panel of double-pane glass arc commonly used. | When light but not view Is' wanted, a glass brick, wall in the I halhvay or corner of the living room < will .solve the problem. Base trim and other woodwork, decorators point out have been simplified, i Woodwork often combined with .such built-in features as decorative shelves, cabinets and bookcases. Traditional wall finishes, such as plaster, wood and manufactured panels, slid rate high in the esleem of home planners. Among the fa- vnrrd manufactured board panels hardboards. plaster boards, plywood panels and predeconitcd hard- j boards. ! Insulating tlleboards. for Instance. """ frequently used to ceil- • i n solar houses and o'hcr ^s of modern design. Predcco- 1 hardboards are well suited for . iirooms and kitchens, planks and nanels or various types are used In I libraries, game rooms and Infcrmal living rooms, Insulating board is widely used fnr finishing rooms of all kinds, I including those in attics and base| menu. Tt is one of the most ver- i salile of tlie modern buildine walls ; -luri ceilings, H decorates, insulates and quiet-s sound. Real Estate Transfers CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT! ....

Pete' the Plumber 101 No. First I'lmnc 3731 WALLPAPER Oak Floors Noted For Coloring and Beauty of Grain While durability is one of the principal qualities which have led to its widespread use as a residential flooring material, oak is noted also for its striking beauty of grain and coloring. It Is the only widely used flooring hardwood which has wood rays sufficiently attractive to warrant quarter-sawing the wood. Wood rays are the llaky, light-colored figures which course through the wood and lend distinctive beauty. In quarter-sawing the log Ls cut at such angles a.s to bring oul rays conspicuously. Plain-sawed oak, which is avail-' able at lower cost because it : easier to process, also possesses at- \; tractive pattern of grain winch i cannot be duplicated in man-made [• products. ! ^ A noteworthy feature of bothfjl quarter-sawed and pain-sawed oak ill Ls that the beauty Ls permanent. ; ,fl Should the wood become worrilfe 1 , j marred after many years of ser- :. vice, its original beauty can be re- ; stored by .sanding and refinishing. A light year is the distance wh'cfi : light travels during a period of one., year, going 186,000 miles every second of that year. Light would go around the earth about seven times during just, one of those seconds.
