B I*. Stratton nearly tied for low place with'a bid of $11,50034, whUe the- Rye Construction company bid was $12,114. ' John Reichart, vice-president of the" Jefferson Transportation company, who was here for the sub- mission'·of the v bids Thursday 1 returned ,to'Minneapolis to take the matter "under ·* advisement before Jetting the contract. The proposed merger of * toe ^Jefferson company with the Northland Greyhound bus company of Minnesota will probably necessitate - a conference" with officers of that concern before the contract is awarded.. The People's Gas and Electric company was the low bidder for the electrical equipment at $507, while the Ideal Plumbing and beating company was the low bidder for the plumbing and heating for $5,607. The plans drawn by Hansen and Waggoner, provide for a barber shop in the southwest corn»r of the building, the total size of which is 50 by 78 feet. To the rear of the barbershop will be the ^ticket office and counter. Along the' east wall will be the lunch room,' down thru the middle of the building. Kitchen and rest rooms are in the rear. The plans include construction of a small basement for a boiler room. Negotiations Fending. ST. PAUL,, Minn., March 14.

B.ut have they--with all ^ their well- routed efficiency--lost some of their old-fashioned charm and hospitality, that homelike, quality which drew the children like a magnet, and made that room one ,of the most inviting in the house ? We do not want to go back to the hard "conditions of earlier days, but 'we can Introduce gay .colors and novel touches which will make even our modern laboratories places of individuality and appeal. The arrangement and coloring of this artist's kitchen is plainly derived from some peasant interior of the old world,' and has a note" of naivete and gaiety which is very engaging. The floor" ia covered with plain, dark blue lirioleum,_on which are laid runners of habitant hand- woven rugs in horizontal 1 stripes of mixed blues,, reds, beige and tans, with here and there a band of black.

The .dances of this series will run about another month, it was stated^ Hollywood Beauty Shop on South Federal Opens The Hollywood Permanent Wave Method Beauty Shop opened Friday at 11% South Federal avenue. Miss Edna Dougherty of Dougherty is manager of the shop, assisted by .Mies Edna Strayer.

A shelf high up on the wall is reminiscent "of similar shelves 'in peasant cottages; even to its gay valance of red and white plaid, whyih sets off the rows of pewter mugs and plates so well. The. colorful dishes on the shelves in, the dresser, as well as the hospitable pewter service, suggest thai? many a jolly informal meal has been' served in ths room. Spread on'the center table is a hand-blocked linen cover in red and dark blue on white, whose design of boats, surrounded by an^ intricate border, was^no doubt adapted from some Jiit of linen picked, up dn a mountain town otrltsiiy or Spain, while the other accessories--the cream pottery bowl for fruit, the wrought-iron candlesticks, the odd little covered enamel dishes, and the painted tin, were picked up, without doubt, in some of the rag fairs or craftsmen's workshops of Europe. This room, with 'its simple, but unusual and colorful equipment, is ailed with inspiration for the housewife wh~o iv would ad\individuality to WALL PAPERS IN MANY DESIGNS Olif and New Patterns Are Available for Modern Homes! With the return of authentic period furniture, has 'come the^necessity for walls that are in contemporary designs. For bedrooms the small, flowered papers on pastel backgrounds are best suited to the Dearly American furnishings, while more elaborate designs, such as fleur de Us, and baskets in^ conventional design are better adapted to French suites. There are a number of effective English patterns, in bolder figures such as ship'moUfs, and miniature reproductions, of historical scenes also in conventional panel arrangement, to be used with English furniture of various periods. Living rooms usually use the simpler types of paper to the best advantage, relying for moat part on an obscured pattern in monotone frequently giving the effect of a brocaded fabric. In dining-rooms, the most effec tive type, of papering is combined with wood paneling, and advocates sporting prints or vivid landscape patterns in an allover design of successive settings. It is for the modernistic room that the solid color papers with metallic lines and subdued geometric figures are used Where modernism, has been allowed full sway, the most attractive kind of wall papering is that-which gives the entirg room the effect of a metal box, by means of plain gold or silver sheets. This is- a fairly costly process, but where thriftiness can be sacrificed -"for '-art's sake, it's well worth the price. Bath rooms, kitchens, and dining alcoves all use gayly figured papers with white, x cream or pastel back- ijrounds. Small flower sprigs form the most appropriate type of design, tho there- are many other fresh looking patterns that will serve to get the cheerful effect that is always so desirable in these rooms.

Furthermore, "eating in the kitchen" is coming back into fashion. Many householders, instead of taking 'space away from the kitchen for a dining alcbve, leave the space there and utilize 'one corner of .the room, aa a place for very informal meals.
