Interest Being Shown In Wallpaper A renewed interest Is being shown 11 wallpaper as a finish for walls I'ucw and modernized homes. As result of technical progress within he industry, o variety of papers are vailnble lo suit any type of Inter- or. Hard, glassy finishes, metallic urfaces, basket weaves, cloth rc- iroductions, wood imitations, and Md-fashioned embossed designs arc mt* a few of tlie styles on the mar-' let. Modern architecture has done a lot to increase the demand for • •ertical aiui horizontal stripe papers, and plnlrt.s arc nlso popular. Metallic surfaces without formal leslgn are n. direct expression ot the modern trend. These come In gold, silver, bronze, and aluminum. Among the textile finishes are embossed papers simulating monks cloth, basket weaves, and old-fash- oned plasters. Some hand-made papers sbuulate velvet and mohair, while woods can be duplicated with remarkable fidelity through a iiutn- of processes. Some of the papers are real wood veneer on a ?aper base, but the majority are reproductions. The types of paper known as 'elour and rough plaster .have taken Iho place of the "oatmeal" paper so fashionable a number of years ago. .

John A. Hyan, chairman of the National Housing committee und one of Ainerli'a'.s leading cliiin-limr'n- ri'fornu'i-.s. nr, llynn today urged that om- oycr.s Join with unions to form huuslng corpora t Ions und build modern, comfortable, imilllple-fiim- lly dwellings, in Mils way, lip said, materials can be bought at wholesale und construction labor sl;i- blllml. $30 Hulls Ncedi-it '"Hie greul need In America today is for privately flimnrctl homes for working men," l)r. Ryan saldyThc biggest shortage lies in homes that rent for $20 ami $30 a month. V/e have estimated llmt there is need for upward of 500.000 such homes, tho biggest need being In Mld-At- liuillc and Southern states. There Is need for those that rent for more limn $30, and the building of those under $20 must, be subsidized by public hinds, ''Private capital, under the Amended Housing Act. could undertake the immediate 'building ol some 300.000 dwellings. These wonk cost around $0000 each, including Ihu land, und require Ihe cxpcndl- no more than $30. In 1935. 5D ucr cent of the families of the United ' "s >md incomes of less than $1500. Since no family should pay more than 20 per cent of its Income for rent, n $ISOO family should not pay more than $25 In rent. Tlie wholesale building of multiple-family structures should offer tlie best answer to this group." Dr. Hyan thinks lhe admlnlslra- lon should supplement Its chcaper- louslng program with oilier reforms nlmed (it Inert-asm? lhe Income of workers and giving them more .security. He advocates the idliiK u-agc-hoiir bill, u broad at- lack on monopolie.s and u resnmp- llon of public works. Bookcases Form Bright Background When floor space permits, bookcases can be built' at right angles in lhe corner of n room. A liong Island house has shelves from floor to ceiling between hall and dining room doors. The book bindings farm a colorful background, for a table ami easy clinlr. California Sun Room Features Flower Bar The gunroom In n California home has white walls nutl a t«rna- lo-red floor. The white furniture is upholstered in turquoise. A feature of the room Is a ilowcr bar located In one corner. There is a lavatory where (lowers may be cut and watered and shelves above for extra vases and bowls. Drawers underneath hold garden implements and shear.s for trimming the plants. Racks Will Keep Luggage Safely For the storage of trunks and ugpaBC, a. clean iky room Is essential. However,-where It-Is sometimes difficult to keep the basement dry, racks may be built to hold the trunks or luggage high enough off the floor to insure no damage. Wallpaper Used As Lining For Shelves A vivid wallpaper makes an in- Icrejitlng lining for built-in bookshelves. Old-fashioned Blass-doored bookcases may be modernized by taking off the doors, retouching the woodwork and cither painting or papering the inside of the shelves. Kitchen Fans Kitchen odorH can bo eliminated from Ihe kitchen by use of an cx- Imust fan Installed In the wall, window, or even In the transom over the door.

Metal ases Give Rounded Comers Rounded strips of metal may be inserted at the corners ot the baseboard to prevent the gathering of dust. For the new home, there are wood insets lo fit tight to each corner, giving the base strip a rounded joint. Either Ihe metal or wood strips may be painted to match the woodwork. Window Shades In Two Colors Window shades may be obtained with different colors on each side of the shade. On this way the exterior appearance of all the windows may be made to conform, while various colors may be selected for the Interior to fit any desired color scheme In any par- tlculw room.
