SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1933 HUTIU3VILLE, (ARK.) CQUKIER NFWS OR IDEA PAGE THRKB Simplicity Will Mark Homes at Norris Patterns Native to Norris Dam Region Adopted by Architects. This is Die second of two arti- rl«s telling of Uncle Sam's "mude- lo-order" town, which will rise near Nouls l>am as uarl of the great Tennessee Valley project, a town M-wnliftcaUy 'planned for cir'jnomy of municipal operation, rclcntioii <:f naturnl beauty, and convenience ol its residents. Ky NEA Service KNOXV1LLE, Tcnn., Nov. 25.— Far from being come bizarre and startling innovation, the typo of rouses ti IK? built at Norris will go back to traditions of this mountain region for their source. First town to be built deliberately as part of Hie great Tennsssse Valley social experiment centering on Muscle Shoals, NDrris will have Ihe sort of housing whico ihe mountain people are used to—but with every modern improvement. For instance, there will be electric heating throughout. Trie town site is only four miles from the future Norris Dam on Cove Creek, and the cheap power is expected to make electric heating practicable throughout in so mild a climate. Tills will cut down on fue transport, delivery entrances, frequent painting, and dirt in general. FEW HOUSES WILL HAVE BASEMENTS Such houses need no bassmcnls and Norris will have few dwelling: that go below ground. I 3 eop!c dowr here are used lo that style, because the mild climate makes basements unnecessary. On the other hand, even- housr will have broad, extensive porches which may be screened in and usec as living or sleeping quarters. Llgh glass panels will substitute for th< screens In winter. Very few houses \vill have a sec ond story—again because that is the type of house favored in this' region. But the roof space is made available by steep, cheap stairways, and may be used as sleeping quarters if desired. Three and four- room house's predominate, as is characteristic of the region. I DESIGNS WIIA BE TYPICAL OF REGIOX' All kinds of ultra-modern housr plans were suggested when t'r:e architects, under direction of Earle S. Draper. TVA director of land planning and housing, met to ex- cr.nnge ideas and form plans. But the false Old World half- timber work designs, "period" types, and ultra-modern ex|>eriments were rejected, and designs that- sprung from the soil, the mountains, and th<i forests of this old region were called on as a base. Housewives of the neighborhood were consulted freely as to Iheir preferences, and the result should be a mountain village, modern as a Fifth Avenue apartment, but still a mountain village. Native and customary materials will be used so far as possible. In general, the exterior walls will be of local brick, though, some frame houses of wide, rough, stained boards will break up any monotony. Hand-riven "shakes." or t-'.iick shingles, will be used for roofs Both interior and exterior will be very plain and without "ornament.' depending for effect on soundness and naturalness of design rather than decorative devices. "DOG-TROT" HOUSES TO BE BUILT AS. TEST A unique but practical feature i£ Inclusion of the "brec7.y-way," or "dog-trot." house. Tris is a hous plan once very common through- oi!l the south, which has an oper j \pcrch or wide "gallery" running en ^ tlrely through th; house from fron 1 to back. Usually there is only one room on either side of this "gallery." These rpen "galleries" make a sort of open living room in summer, and insure gotxi ventilation In t>c nankin; rorms. But the old type has been im proved by facilities for closing I during the short winter period. Only a tew "dog-trots" will b" built, frankly as an experiment, t sec whether modern .southerner will like the kind of house thei erandfnthcrs lived In. GARAGES Will. BE OF COMMUNITY TYPE Small accessory outbuildings fo workshops or vegetable or othe storage purposes will go with cad house. But there will be few in dividual garages. Most people will keep their cars 'n community-type garages locatec 1 in each residential block. In this way Individual lawns need not be cut up by driveways. Most post-war European housln projects have been of the city bee hive type, art i much progress ha been made tcere. But probably nc such thorough study of the sma iiousc in semi-rural surrounding has been made as Draper and h assistants have completed. Tracy B. Augur, former town panning consultant f or Dearborn Mir.r: J. C. Bradner. Jr.. form« engineer with the Taconlc (N. Y A plate P"k system; and F. A. Wan ^ n well-known eastern architcc were associated with Draper i completing the plans. Valuable aid also was renderw by Henry V. Hubbard of Harvar professor of regional planning, an. IT'S AN ILL WIND - Simple houses, like the oile .shown above, will be Hie keynote nl N:>r- ris. Plain designs predominate, instead of inncy types, stained boards and heavy hand-split bhingles E° into the construction.

IOVE IS VIEWED OF 'AST SIGNIFICANCE Many - famous visitors already ave come to Cove Creek to view Norris project, and some have ot hesitated to say that the Ten- essec Valley project as a whole is lore significant, than even the :ho!e NKA. The "barracks" now being com- 'leted for use of men wt.o are to •ork on the Norris Dam itself arc Krmanent buildings. It is exacted that, oh completion of the am. few of these buildings will be ieeded as houses, though it is pos- ible that some such quarters for ingle men may be retained. But mcsl cf them so are built hat they will serve, with only light alterations, as shops. as«m- uly halls, and sue>. uses when the. own of Norris has simmered down o its permanent form. Training shops for the work-. idiool ' system arc an important | clement in the TVA program for] aising the standards of the local vorkers, and t^ese buildings later' vill be available for such shops. ! Every effort is being made lo make Norris not an alien, strange hing set down in unsympathetic •nirroundings. but to make it part (though a better parti of the Tennessee Valley setting.

There nre, however, certain [unctions of food that it cannot replace. It dees not provide any etsential substances, such as the proteins, necessary for tissue repair and body growth; neither does It supply the necessary mineral salts and vitamins needed for the human body. It Is purely a substance for providing energy. It is also a drug, with certain definite actions and results. The chief value of alcoholic drinks in small amounts Is to make people fed belter. Alcohol Is a drink which people used to take to drown their troubles. It gives a feeling of well being. Hence, it Is used particularly by the nged, who sometimes feel depressed, and it is o'. special value In certain diseases in which there is a feeling of depression difficult for tiie patient lo overcome. GItEAT HAUM IN EXCESS The excessive use oj alcohol cannot be defended successfully by anyone. Used in excess, It prcduc- es serious damage to the human body In the way of changes In the ssues. It destroys co-ordination. It ren- ers the user susceptible to ncci- ent an dexposure to the elements, esulting in disease. Everyone can emember when hospitals were hrongcd with cases of pneumonia, epresenting drunkards thrown out f saloons who had lain in Ihe gut- er and from ex[>osure had dcvel- pcd tho disease. T.tere is plenty of evidence that Icohol taken in excess actually njurcs the germ olasm: the rhll- r°n ol chronic alcoholics are no- criotisly likely to be both physlcal- THE CITZ A week of newest pictures and a j "Cotton" Warburton, Homer Grlf- stage show of unnsuut iniereM will flth, "Ftosy" Hosenberg, Captain enteitaln theater fans here In the : Ford E'almer,' nil of the natlonn ccming seven days. | championship Trojans, played 1m James Hall, screen star, and his 1 ! 1011 "" 1 P"rts In making the'slam "Hall's Angels" featuring Ray El-1 blul< < foolbnll action Hie best eve zic, pianist formerly with Abe Ly- screened, man's band, and Sally Randall, In her sensational fan dance direct Joan Crawford and Olark Gabl from the worlds fair, will present' " the Perfect pair" will ,be seen to gether In the show "Dancing Lad a substantial second prize.
