The house was exhibited at the Goodyear Farms, a 35-acre pro- 'jeet devoted to experimental , work on new inventions and I farming methods. It is 118 miles I west of Phoenix. The house measures 15 by 26 .feet and is in no sense a trailer .home, although a special trailer can transport it. Constructed o double layers of plywood will resinfoam insulating material be tween, it has 2 bedrooms (oni * double, the other a double-deckec i; single), a kitchen-living room shower and sanitation facilitie ; and space for a mechanical re if- frigerator. The bedrooms.telescop into the center to reduce it to an 8-foot width. The portable living quarters is the result of suggestions from farm editors that it would be th nswer to providing; a low-cost, omfortable home for married neu working on farms and solve he problem ot keeping good arm help. Other projects under way at he Goodyear farm include "igloo" lomes, made by inflating a half- jalloon of rubberized fabric, lay- ng chicken wire over it and applying 2 layers of plaster over the wire. After the material has hardened, the balloon is removed from the inside. The houses come in one or 2 domes, with connecting corridor. Each type "igloo" home contains kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms and a bath. They are equipped with evaporation-type air conditioning. Tentative estimates place their cost at $2,800 to $3,200 for one dome and $3,300 for the double dome. Furlough Extended Golden City.

Try Salt on Grapefruit as Taste Thrill With vitamin-rich grapefruit now in season, the nation's largest manufacturer of table salt has aunched a novel advertising idea aimed at promoting the use of this fruit as 1 of the 2 govern- m e n t nutrition experts s a y should be included in a balanced d a i l y war-time diet. T h e novelty lies in urging the use of good table salt on grapefruit a n d oranges and in c i t r u s juices, a 11 purchasable nov.' without handing over ration stamps to your grocer. Salt, admittedly indispensable to human life, never has been rationed. "Salt makes grapefruit taste sweeter," "salt on grapefruit brings out an entirely new flavor' and "a dash of pure salt on any citrus fruit or in a glass of juice 'does something" 1 are the main themes of the manufacturer's in-1| A ! T n f|of pr l tensive promotion effort which rur-HIUdieU wili run during the grapefruit season. Many persons who have used salt on citrus fruits and in juices say they experienced an entirely new and pleasantly palatable taste. Plants Set Record in Carbine Production Chicago, CU.R)--Brig. Gen. Thomas S..Hammond, chief o£ the Chicago ordnance district, has announced that 10 plants set a record in November by producing 200 per cen more 30-caliber carbines than the combined production of Springfield and Enfield rifles in any month of the World war I. The plants included, Quality Hardware and Machine Corp., anc Rock-Ola Manufacturing Corp both of Chicago; Underwood-El liot-Fishcr Co., Hartford, Conn, International Business Aluchin Corp., Poughkeepsie, N. V.; Na tional Postal Meter, Rochester. Y.: Standard Products Compam Clinton, O., and the 2 plants o the Saginaw Steering Gear Co one at Saginaw, Mich., and th other at Grand Rapids, Mich. ound Practicable New York, (U.R)--An "air-pres- uro roof," without framework or uppoi'ts, has been found praclica- 16 to build for use as a store- icuse, Prof. Joseph A. Wise of the few York university college of ingmeenng, lias announced. Invented by Herbert H. Stevens, Jr., a consulting engineer, the roof, made of thin, flatsheet steel soldered to a steel ring base, was inflated with air from a pressure pump, during tests, to form a dome-shaped building. The war production board gave the college of engineering a contract to investigate the possibilities of the roof and Wise reported that it was "considered feasible to erect an experimental building. :iOO feet in diameter . . . In one test, GOO pounds ot lead were placed on a ·ID-inch model and the roof withstood the weight with no mishap." . Tests indicate it could be constructed quicker and cheaper than a regular steel and wood warehouse, Wise said.
