Little White Cottage Here is a perfect kittle white cottage. With its two pinlc ramblers reaching up to cover the side lattice work of the ample front porch, its foundation plantings just beginning to give promise of future beauty, smart green shutters and green shingle roof, this is a little' home that any woman will immediately take to her heart. And when in addition you examine the floor plan, you will see that the architect has achieved here an unusually compact and well arranged small house. In fact, 1 many of the swanky m o d e r n apartment houses show practically this same layout,--which includes a living room HxlO% feet; a 6x8 dinette; an 8x10 kitchen and two bedrooms, one 10x10 feet, the other 10x11 feet, with a modern bath between. The porch is 7x14, just a nice size to arrange with gay looking outdoor furniture. To further delight the housewife there is u closet in the living room, one in each bedroom, a linen closet, and place for up-to-date kitchen cabinet. Attic Fan Contributes Comfort in Summer As the time for charting spring repairs approaches, the h o m e owner should consider means of making his house more comfortable during the hot summer months. One method of effectively reducing the temperature in the home during warm weather is through the use of an attic ventilating fan, which circulates cool air through the house and exhausts warmed air through the attic. Available to home owners now are attic fans designed to assure freedom from noise and vibration through the use of a sound- absorbent lining in the steel housing. The blades are die- forrned, and their shape provides positive air movement even under adverse draft conditions without overloading the motor. Several sizes of the fans are available. .

Fire Loss in United States Great From Poor Chimneys' Flues The actuarial bureau of tin National Board of Fire Under; writers estimates that the a\ nge annual fire loss due to de-\ Tective chimneys and flues in th. United States is above $25,000;000, and many lives are lost in some 32,000 fires. According, to authorities, theri_ are eight common' factors which V contribute to faulty chimneys: (1) Insufficient height; (2) omission of flue lining; (3) offsets and bends in the chimney; (4) improper installation of smoke pipe; (5) other openings into the chimney; (fi) cover for clean-out door not tight; (7) improper support for chimney; and (8) improper laying of brick. Home owners should have their chimneys -inspected by competent inspectors to prevent the possibility of fire, federal housing administration officials point out. mm .-^\ PSs- Interior Doors Now Gve Opportunity for Home Decoration The interior doors of a home should be decorative and pleasing to the eye as well as useful, according to federal housing administration officials. The conventional decorating schemes of blended walis, doors, and trim may be interestingly varied by painting the doors and trim in contrasting colors. With walls of the deeper colors, the doors may be painted white, cream, or ivory. A certain amount of care and discretion is needed in this scheme of interior decorating, however, as the size of the room and the nature of its use, as well as the style or type of furnishings, will all be factors in the choice of colors.
