TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1933 ' BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS GITOUTH ISPWDfOR "Stringtown-on-the-Subway" Architect Proposes Homes LinK^ by Subway for M«W Town. BY NpA Service WASHINGTON, Aue. 2. — Ever tlpo* th« Tennessee Valley Aulh- ortr.v announced that it planned to fciilld a model residence town near Its Cove Creek - Dam project, fu- tirre-rnlnded architects have been j gi'tynlttiim their suggestions. Eerie B. Draper. In charge- of lond plnnnln? and. housing nt Cove Creek, has Indicated that he hopes ti devise a distinctive plan lor the new '.town which will disregard all "model communities" built heretofore, and Be .designed to flt In with the combined city and' country life envisioned for the T>T>n>.w*. Valley. Strtnrtnwn Up to Date One of Die most Interesting and] cpmplet/i plans thus far proposed 1> that for "Roadtown," a new kind' of- suburban village designed by Architect Kdgar Chambless of New York. Tills would be a sort of modern variation of the old American ' theme of "Strlngtown- on^'he-Pike." Chambless, who has organized! The Roadtown Foundation to further ' his', ideas, would build in, I suburban or rural sections a lone I firing of connected - : houses. But •tWev would' not be "row houses as that U now understood. The structural connection between ' these homes would be in a scml-sub- . merged trench .which, would carry Joe?) traffic and 'such common 'fncililies as sewers, water pipes. heating pipes, gas and electric .line's. Swrftee Unmarred • This "subway" would pass beneath each house, integrating them ' all from a structural and utilities standpoint, b'ut no connection •would be visible from the surface. ' Nothing . but lawns and gardens need marr the surface of this community. The top of this road and utlljty tunnel .would rise somewhat above the ground level, and the irround floors of the houses would be a few steps above ground level, too. • That ' would give the underground highway ventilation and light. "floriiwital Skyscrapers" Chambless' Idea is that it is wrong to build cities as we build them now. in circles about a center like the -ripples about a pebble dropped Into water. That nec- cessairily causes .congestion. Further, he believes it Is also wrong to:biii(dt t.hem"verticaltv. as In the R.reat' fettles.
