The flowers open to fully double, truly lavender roses of perfect form with petal edges curved, wavy, ruffled and touched by a suffusion of royal ruby. The blooms of Angel Face are large, four inches or more, abundant, and come in clusters on medium length stems. As a finishing touch that spells perfection, the flowers are blessed with A relatively new product, called Scotchtint Solar Control Film, manufactured by the 3M Company, is being used in Hawaii to control glare, fading and reduce the amount of heat admitted through the wide windows of many buildings. The manufacturers say that Scotchtint reduces the amount of heat admitted by as much as 75 per cent, thus reducing air conditioning costs. The film, which essentially becomes a part of the glass, once applied, is said to repel up to 81 per cent of the ultra-violet rays of the sun, cutting down on annoying glare and the high cost of fading of interior fabrics. The material, a tough polyester film in an optically-approved tone of grey, is easily applied to the inside panes of building windows, said Charlie Fromherz, president of Glass-Tint Hawaii, Inc., the local firm about the children's mud tracks across your carpets!

Because it behaves (on the outside of the building) like a mirror, reflecting light back outward, building appearance is improved by keeping windows looking uniform, no matter how the interiors are decorated. And he said that the film provides a certain amount of shatter-resistance to any glass to which it is applied. "S c o t c h t i n t is easily maintained, too," Fromherz said. "It is cleaned at the same time and by the same methods, used in ordinary window cleaning. The only requirement is that regular, non-abrasive window-cleaning materials be used. "And Scotchtint is easily removed, if desired. It is designed to be installed on-, the-spot to already existing windows, and it can be done without disrupting normal working conditions." Hinged Counter Aids the Chef Every back yard chef needs a work counter near the barbecue, and attaching one to the fence is a smart way to provide it. To build a drop-leaf barbecue counter of any size, nail - tongue-and-groove boards over pieces of 2x4-inch cedar or fir. The 2x4s will form the bracing on the counter's underside. Then hinge the counter to the fence's middle rail or to a ledger strip screwed to the fence. To hold the counter in place when up, use lengths of chain run from screw eyes at the counter's outside corners to screw eyes set in the fence's top rail. Dog leash clips at each end of the chains will snap firmly into the screw eyes but are easily unhooked. V, J 'vt mil m m m Til? f t 'Pascali' white Pascali, the whitest of white hybrid teas, produces a vigorous growing, erect, well shaped and well clothed plant, which is always a good start for any rose. The flowers of this "Paschal" are remarkably beautiful in form. The graceful urn - shaped buds open to medium size blooms which hold their high, budlike centers exceedingly well even until the outer petals drop. The flowers are usually made up of 35 to 40 petals The Contract Designer Must Be Businesslike By CHARLES HEEN. AID President, Hawaii Chapter, American Institute of Interior Designers 'Contract interiors' deals with the designing of interiors for hotels, resorts, shopping centers, individual stores and shops, restaurants, cocktail lounges, , offices, banks, hospitals, libraries and many other commercial and institutional projects. The contract interior designer is a highly developed specialist. He is well trained academically, experienced in retail and wholesale selling with several years in the field. This specialist, in my opinion, must first be business-oriented that is to say as far as his product is concerned and his approach to his client. I have always felt the best and most effective point at which to begin a project with the client is the budget. Many times the client does not have a set budget Two Trust Territory Radio itations Construction of two new radio stations in the Trust Territory will begin early this year. They are scheduled for completion in April, 1969. The stations are KJQR, located on Navy Hill in Sai-pan, Marianas Islands, and WSZO near the Mobil Oil Bulk Plant on Majuro, Marshall Islands. The broadcasting operations are currently housed in old and obsolete buildings. The broadcast stations are especially important to the island communities during periods of storm and typhoon emergencies which occur with some frequency in the Trust Territory islands. Though not self-supporting, the government-operated stations do accept paid commercial material. Programming is primarily English language. Architectural and engineering services for the new plans are being provided by Hawaii Architects & Engineers, Inc., a Honolulu-based association of nine member-firms. Under a contract awarded in June, 1968, schematic drawings were submitted in November to the Radio Broadcast Center, Office of the High Commissioner, hybrid tea. and give forth just the slightest breath of fragrance. Good white roses are few and far between. Therefore, this is an excellent new contribution to the home gardeners. Comanche, a bold, new grandiflora has large, high centered blooms of brilliant scarlet. The long pointed buds unfold to fully double four-inch flowers of 50 petals. The blooms are borne on long strong stems on a Aid From A.I.D.

In conjunction with budget discussions, the designer presents his various professional fee charges and their method of processing. When both the budgets and fees are approved, the next items that move into place are an outline of cost controls, quality checks on the products, wearability and performance of the goods, attractiveness, originality, uniqueness and, of course, always that which is practical, useful and functional. Locally Designed Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Completed plans will be submitted this month. The buildings are budgeted at $70,000 each and are identical, except for minor adjustments to accommodate the two sites. Architectural character of the structures is simple and straight-forward and expresses the functional nature of the activity. The floor plan is designed to house the administrative and the operational areas as The new buildings which will house radio stations KJQR on Saipan and WSZO on Majuro are straightforward, functional, and typhoon-resistant.

All plans are rendered architecturally, to scale, and detailed to express the design concept of the interior designer. Under his technical guidance, good and proper interpretations are illustrated and verbal expressions are given accurate meaning to all concerned. When all plans have been approved, budgets accepted, fees embraced, the contract interior designer then plans his scheduling of all products. As part of this program of coordination, two separate structures with a connecting passageway between. This passageway will serve also as a main entrance to the buildings. The foundation, floor slab and exterior walls are of reinforced concrete. The roof is constructed of sheet metal on steel frames. Interior walls are of gypsum board. Major areas will be acoustically treated and both buildings will be completely air-conditioned.
