With a few struclural changes and a new exterior dress, they say, thi'se houses can be rejuvenated into tasteful modern homes. Faulty rooflines, bulky porche. over-ornamentation and jxxir pro- portions'are among the most frequent mistakes which make a house grow old before Its time. These drawbacks very often can be ovcr- co(ue with comparatively simple alternations in structure.

This will provide pace for storing suitcases and oth- r odds and ends that are always 11 the way. Church Has Annual Service BIDDEFORD, Me.
