PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,) COURIER NEWS This Is What Hitler Meant A ^*s? ** *' i ^ ESSEITIiy. MONDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1940 Good Plan, Plenty Of Space Should Govern Design Of Closet Closets and storage nooks arc simply "places to put things." as housekeepers often remark. Federal Housing Administration officials say that storage space not r only is an absolute necessity in the home but il also must be well planned and adequate in size. .Family./possessions and family housekeeping- .habits vary, and it is therefore difficult to establish fixed standards for closets. The PHA. however, requires 'that in the construction of a new home, there should be a minimum of one clo.sei for each bedroom, a coat closet, :i linen closet, and a. closet for cleaning and other equipment. Basement or Attic In houses of traditional design, storage space is generally provided either in a basement or an attic. In many modern houses, even those which are not of so-called modern design, both attic and basement have been.eliminated. This is justifiable if adequate space for storage if, provided in other parts of the house. As a rule, the shallow closet is considered to be the most economical and can be most conveniently arranged, provided the opening is nearly as long as the closet itself. When the closet is long, two doors usually prove more convenient than one wirta door. An ordinary bedroom closet need not be more than about 24 inches ^deep. since coai hangers are only ' 18 inches across. About six inches should, be allowed below garments for cleaning purposes after the - hanging; rods have been installed. A shelf placed above the rod adds to closet convenience. Hooks in a closet should nob be placed' within five inches of the door, should hot be placed on doors less than 30 inches wide, and when uived by small children should be p'laced within their easy reach. Inventory First Step Proper closet planning requires, first, an inventory of the family's possessions which will need storage space; The average family must usually store, in addition to clothing- and linens, such things as trunks, ^luggage, toys, possibly a variety of sports equipment, odd pieces of furniture and seasonal decorations, extra china, seasonal clothing, utensils V.and tools, a.nd many other "small and large Helms. If-closet space is not : intelligently planned, there will one day be ; .a sad realization- that alteration must be made. Such afterthought may prove, expensive. From U. S. Hearts to British Heads Making lorpedaes—for war on British shipping Pyramiding a German bomb factory. These pictures, just received in America, were made inside German armament factories as they surged —under the whip-hand of totali- ' tarinnism—into a new fall and winter of production. They illustrate the boastful words of Adolf Hitler, who told his Berlin munitions workers the other clay: "The munitions problem has never been (to Germany) a problem at all." These are the same wheels of a grim industry which, grinding relentlessly away last winter—while France dozed behind her Maginot Line and the British were concocting jokes about "the bore war" —emerged in the Spring with a war machine that crushed western j Europe. Whether Spring. 1941, shall tell a different story than Spring, 1940, depends upon how rapidly and how effectively other wheels now are turning in other factories in other lands beyond the Rhine.

He went to the airport, found his instructor, and the two took off for a search of the ranch. The goats were located from the air and later driven to other pastures by mounted herders. Cheap Wedding Rings Pawned, But Youth Pays DENVER (UP) — Wedding rings often offer security but in this case it was the wrong kind. A 17-year-old Indiana youth was sentenced to 18 months in a cor- rectional institution. for posting cheap wedding rings as security for loans from service station operators. He had traveled across the country with three other, boys and two girls posing as a. married man who was willing to exchange "my wife's valuable wedding ring" for a loan. Prisoners Learn Solidarity Really Means Solitary SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (UP) — A union - minded inmate of the Salt Lake county jail has learned that you can't strike against the government, or even the jailer, for that matter. When officers learned that two trusties had been AWOL from desirable outside cleaning jobs, they demoted them. But the would-be labor boss promptly organized a strike among the other inmates, all of whom refused appointments as successors to the hapless pair. When the prisoners learned that "solidarity" meant "solitary," the stride was broken. XMAS EVE DANCE TUESDAY NIGHT THE BLUE ROOM HOTEL NOBLE CENTURY IDSIi n run CENTURY D!tTH.«.INO CO.. PCOftlA.
