"71 mom* BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, MAY 25, 1M3 BETIER HOMES HomeMs Where the Job-Is The Brotherstns team up to erect a. class block and wood strip partition for the big livmr room of (heir apartment. 'OETTING the pace for many a *^ young couple constantly on- the move as a result of wartime conditions, the Eric Brothersens have mastered the art of. making even temporary lodgings seem like home. Eric and his wife are nomads even in peacetime as he is the bright young actor who plays opposite Gertrude Lawrence in "Lady in the Dark", a show that has interspersed long runs on Broadway \\ith cioss-cpuntiy tours and is soon to open in San Francisco. The. Brothersens love to entertain informally* before • and after the theater, but they like furnishings that fit in anywhere and can j»o into storage at the drop of a hat. That's why they're partial to big one room apartments and rm'e invested in a low partition of glass blocks and prefabricated wood strips that can readily be dismantled. In their 'New York apartment they set the partition Up to separate the dining end of their huge one room from the end that serves as a living room. And a drop leaf/table set against the glistening blocks provides an attractive setting for simple bullet suppers ami aftcrithe theater refreshments. Cooking is a gay cooperative venture in the Broihersen'.s maid- less household, and Eric is espe cially proud, of the icings he whips Helen pours—whtn-the guests, lock into their.home (or after-, (heater refreshments. , ', ip for his wife's cakes. They've also trained their seven-month- old daughter Barbara to love a opsy-turvy routine of crowds nnd changes. Barbara goes along whenever they set out with the company of "Lady in the Dark" and sleeps like a log on overnight train trips. She bubbles with hospitable pleasure when guests • werfloW the family quarters, and s only unhappy if she's left out of things. j Like the wife of many a serv« iceman and transplanted war worker, Helen Brolherson' -believes in keeping the family to-' getlier and always having a home, even though that home may be on one coast in December and the ot- ther in May. And wherever the Brothersens do settle they put out the welcome mat for friends and felloiv actors who keep their household humming wilh good times.

Any home owner with n knack for using tools can do the job himself, using materials available at any lumber yard.
