Availibk Anyone planning to put down a xvcxxlen floor . . . cither over an "hi floor or oicr a suhfloor . . . lias a wide choice of types nf (I wing as well as kinds of wood. There is the ever-popular strip flooring, as well as the plank, block and parquet styles. The strip floor- ing is the kind you usually lee In widths anywhere from one and one- half to three and one-half inches. ' At one time, strip flooring came only with square edges. The lengths were butted together and then face- nailed; that is, nailed through the tops of the strips in the joists These days, most strip flooring is {tongue and grooved. The nails are driven into the tongues at a 45 degree angle and thus are hidden I by the grooves of the succeeding I boards. The only flcc-naiUns done Jii in the firii and latt strips put | down. Should you put down the flooring yourself, be sure, in nailing through the tongues, that you do not drive the nails all the way with a h a m m e r . Just before the nails are flush with the wood, stop hammering directly against the nail- Hibbs have a Grand Gift Dept. chuck-full of items that will really make Dad Happy.

PUnki Art Widtr Plank flooring ii ii nilir to strip flooring except lhat the boardi arc wider and usually are laid In random widths. You see them very much in ranch-style hornet. There are many variations of plank flooring, some ol which use wooden pegs as a deroralive touch. Uke strip flooring, the planki come either squire-i-dged or tongue-and- grooved. However, each plank Ii listened at either end with screws, even though nails also are used Thai's to prevent warpagc, which occuri more Irequently in wide boards than narrow ones. The planks usually come in uidthi from three to nine inches. For thoie who w a n t ml lus- ury underfoot, parquet floors will do it. They consist ol square or rectangular pieces ol wood installed to form eye-appealing and sometimes intricate design* and patterns. In most cases, those who can afford parquet floors should spend the cilra money to hue the installation d o n e professionally, since it's more difficult than other types of flooring. Some manufacturers now are putting out special kinds of flooring which cive the parquet effect yet are easier to install. These wooden blocks can i be put down, depending on the particular type chosen, with nail! or with mastic, the latter kind suit- iable for uie over concrete. Some ;come in units of four or fi\e blocks joined together. Trpts erf Weed Resides miking up our mind on the type ol flooring, you'll have to decide w h a t kind of wood to buy. In a few cases, you'll find that t h e . particular type you have selected is available only in one or two kinds of wood. But generally, you will nave a choice. Among the hardwoods, oak, maple, birch, pecan and beech are popular, although hickory, ash, cherry and some ol the less readily-available hardwoods can be obtained if desired . . . usually at higher prices. Hemlock and a few other softwood; make excellent floors and mutt be given consideration when overall price is Important. No matter what kind of wood you select, you ean get it in different grades. The differences In grade generally affect the appearance of the wood rather t h a n its strength and durability. Sometimes, a very cheap grade ol wood is chosen because the natural defect and variation in colnr make a more interesting floor. | And don't forget . . . if you're i planning on lovering the floor with . w all to-wall carpeting, you'd he silly to pick out an eipensive wood · because of its beautiful appearance.

The city Is d r a m a t i c evidence that a community, left far behind by the industrial revolution of the last century, can overcome the handicap in a rush toward the future. I'aulistas, referring to the state as well as the city, says "Sao Paulo is a locomothe pulling 20 Aly Khan To Wed PARIS un -- Newspaper Trance Soir Tuesday announced as "official" the long rumored marriage of Prince Aly Khan and Paris Mannequin Bettina. The prince (himself wouldn't talk. empty ears ( t h e other Brazilian states)." Built over rolling hills and shallow valleys, Sao Paulo is a melting pot of three million. On Its wide modern boulevard! walk Germans, Japanese, Italians, Hungarians and even descendants of proud Confederates who left the United States after the Civil War. And the i m m i g r a n t s keep coming. Some bring money, others technical knowhow. Still others come with empty pockets and big dreams. But all add to Sao Paulo's dynamic personality. In this nation of vast lands and untapped resource.", Sao Paulo has a niche of its own. It has taken long strides ahead of the rest of Brazil. From its snaring skyscrapers, it modern factories, come more t h a n half of the country's textile products, chemicals and medicines. It produces 80 per cent of ,«ll Brazilian electrical materials, 78 per cent of manufactured rubber goods and M per cent of the m.'ichinery and finished metal. Sao Paulo's industrial growth far nuhhadows its population in- on the fantastic. The value of metallurgical i n d u s t r i e s h a s grown from less than one million dollars in 1940 to eight million in 15.V) to II million in J9S5. The automotive industry was valued at two million dollars in 1950 and five million in 1955. The value of the chemical industry urew from eight million dollars in 1550 to 21 million in 1955. There is an estimated one billion dollars invested in and around Sao Paulo by U. S. companies. General Motors has announced a 10 million dollar expansion plan here. Ford Motor Co. is expected to follow suit. In the chemical field, money has been invested by W. U. Grace and Co., Cclanese, Union Carbide and others. Union Carbide invested five million in a pasties plant. Borden Chemical is making formaldehyde and other chemicals in a four million dollar- plant. Although U. S. investments make up about CO percent of the total foreign investments in Sao Paulo, other nations are moving in rapidly. Germany has invested 72 million dollars in Brazil since 1952--more than any other nation--and U per cent of this money is in Sao Paulo. The heavy immigration to Sao Paulo has solved one major problem of industrialization that the rest of Brazil faces. In Sao Paulo, there is no lack of technicians for the factories. "We have our own techn'ral schools now," said one industrialist. "Actually, Sao Paulo needs agricultural experts for the fields. But for the factories, we're training our own."
