Biv ROSKI.LKN CAI.LAHAN NBA Staff Writer NEW YORK—If you are planning lo furnish ft' new home, nsk yourself, "How liltle caiv I buy?" Thai advice, strangely, conies from n man who is interested In selling furniture: He is T. M. nbisjohn-Glbblngs, Interior decorator, furniture designer and author. "Tills Is especially true if your apartment or house is smal)," the tall, blbrid Englishman' adds. "Too many poncleroiu> ; pieces and too many pictures cut down the si7£ of a room. Rather, select, a few well-made,- simply designed contemporary things.

LOOKING AHEM W OEOIIGI t UNION Free to live our lives In any honorable manner, and ciulck to' learn from ench other, the families of America are growing more alike in habit's and in alms. Meanwhile living standards rise and American culture advances far beyond that of from transplanting foreign problems In Ainorjca.
