Gtiy C tan's SKATING RINK Now Open For Summer Big Tent Now Lncaied Across From Nil-Way Laundry » Afternoon and Nile Sessions EASY-DOES-IT IS POSTWAR PROMISE OF MIRACLE HOMES BY Rl'SlK KINAUD NBA SliilV Writer NKW YORK.—For your house of tomorrow scientists are cheuming up plastic rugs us thick ;is Pcrsliuis; upholstery and draperies that can be hosed clean; stainless, mar-less and tndcslructiljle furniture, smudge-proof wallpaper; unbreakable lablcs and cooking ware; knives with edges which will never grow dull; ami Dingle appliances . that will banish ihe word "drudgery" from the American vocabulary. Many of these dreams are in ttic embryo of blueprint. Others have emerged from the chrysalis of ex- perimentation—wnr babies with n postwar career ahead of them. Jiut even the most dreamy-eyed visionary warns that postwar miracles will not be ready for the furniture van on V-Day, Maybe not lor many years thereafter. The renson: J It look this country a year and a half to tool up for wartime industry. Reconversion cannot be expected to beat a record which was in gently accelerated by the urgency of war. IMl'KOVl'l) Al'I'MANCES What you can expect after V-Oay —as soon as the signal Is given lo start peacetime production—are' 1941 and 1942 model mechanical refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, kitchen stoves, radios, washing machines and all of the household etceteras on which production was slowed down or stopped during the war and for which there will be a pent-up demand. Because tremendous strides In wartime technological re.sciirch have been made, from which better methods of production have been developed and more adaptable materials have ticcn discovered, replacement furniture and appliance.; of the 10-12 vintage will doubtless be improved and un; expected lo cost less money. .Great white hope for transforming the interior of ihe postwar homo is plastics, which have contributed so dramatically to the winning of the war. Wurtimo experimentation proved that flooring for naval vessels, aircraft and homes can l» made of tough, non-abrasive plastics that look like wood, glow like haud-polished mahogany, and besi of all resist foot-prints, scuffing and slnins. PLASTIC VLUMBING There is also proof that wails can be made of plastic and that transparent, coatings oii wall paper can keep it smear-proof; that rugs 'with a pile in which, you can sink ankle deep can be made of synthetic fibers; that non-fr-cKc pipes, plumbing and bathroom fixtures can be made of plastics, and because then, absorb room temperature-will he-war mand comfortable Upholstery and draperies that caii « you "Jooi DiLTA LUMBER CO.

GLASS KITCIIHNS There will lie new and driunnlU: use of glass and ceramics. Nonporous and non-absorbent vilriohV glass makes a kitchen sink wlilcli only needs a swipe or two with a damp cloth to clean. A now-you- sec-it, now-you-don't sink "and dishwasher of glass slides !n an.l out of a wall, am! puts on n performance with electric lights and' foot pedals worthy of a Duck Kosery movie. There is a glass-hooctcd ' for visibility) cooking unit, scheduled for modern kitchens, conhiniii" among other things a rotary barbecue and recessed glass utensils In which to cook and serve a meal. Thanks to wartime necessity of keeping defense-plant cutting tools keen-edged without re-sharpening, a chronic-alloying process will one day do as much for kitchen cutlery scissors, pocket knives and lawnmowers. ''But even Mien"'the"time cbihes to pinch yourself to make sure that these miracles are real, you'll still be surrounded by the old tinn-s lhat you like. The best millioritics promise that no matter how streamlined and functional the interior of your home becomes, there will always be a place for traditional furniture and for a period decor that matches. Apply New Roof Over Old for Increased Protection New roofs of asbestos cement shingles can usually be applied directly over the old covering, home maintenance experts assert. Among the advantages of this procedure are increased weather protection. reduction in labor costs, and protection of the interior of the house in cas e of rain while work a under way. Moreover, the scattering of debra over, the house and surroundings is eliminated. All loose shingles should be nailed securely and protruding nails should be driven in before the new roofing is applied. In nailing, care should be taken lo avoid spaces between boards underneath. Nails must, be sufficiently long to fasten the new shingles securely. Oouncr HONEST, DO I LOOK AS IF I'D CLEANED HOUSE TODAY? "... My BATH has refreshed me all over. Now I'm ready for fhe evening."

Slightly sloping floors and gutters along the baseboards will carry off the water. Simplicity Is Keynote Of New Furniture In answer lo the flurry of protests and raised eyebrows regarding his fast-selling book, "Goodbye, Mr. Clilppciidnle," T. T. Robsjohn- Gibbings points out what lie means by contemporary design in Ihe .June issue of Heller Homes & Gardens magazine. Simplicity strikes the keynote of the English decorator's designs. "(Jsc as little furniture as possible and keep your carpels and draperies the same color," he advises. "Give variation to each room by Introducing one brilliant color accent. For example, if your home Is painted in pale gray, yon could have two chairs and the pillows on your sofa in the living-room & brillianl sun yellow. Chairs In Ihe dining-room could be covered lu a clear leaf, green." Uncluttered wall spaces nnd floor areas bring n feeling of tninqiiilllj lo a room, he feels, and one bow filled with green leaves gives more life and freshness than a do/en meaningless prints, whatnots, anc pieces of nnliqtic bric-a-brac. "Don't buy small tables, uscles except to fill a room," points out the British author-designer.
