Portabl e iolutions to problem lighting Tre GAZETTE, Montreal, Thursday. November 1, 1979 Adequate, well-placed space in a room, but beware: lighting is something many "Wall washing eliminates de-homes and apartments lack, tails in art. such as a sketch." J but the lighting industry now said Ms. Smith. "You must offers many solutions. watch the intensity of the Even for renters, who light as you don't want to can't make many changes in blind the person sitting on weir rooms without incurring the wrath of the landlord, there are fixtures such as small fluorescent and track lights that can be easily installed, plugged into a socket and taken with you when you move. But how to use lighting for comfort and safety, to properly show off paintings, and illuminate antiques without ruining the finish? Fran Kellogg Smith can answer any question about lighting. President of Luminae Inc., lighting consultants and de signers in San Francisco, Ms. Smith is a part-time teacher at the University of California at Berkeley and has such lighting projects as Bob Hope's house and San Francisco's St. Francis Hotel to her credit. Lighting suggestions Among her suggestions: You can change the shape of space with lighting. A wall wash ceiling fixtures directed toward a wall visually will increase the sofa while washing the art on the wall. - One must take care with the intensity of the light when illuminating fine antiques, too. "You can damage both paintings and finishes on fine furniture with too intense a lieht,' Ms. you stand at the mirror, " said the expert. . Kitchens need task lighting, over the sink and under the cabinets, in order to light the chore at hand and to avoid body shadows. A single ceiling fixture located behind the person preparing vegetables at the sink will make the task not only tedious but dangerous as well. When lighting a corridor, light one end of it "because it's more pleasant to walk toward the lizht," she nets are popular. Moire (or watered silk) is great as a cabinet liner. Ms. Smith said. "But avoid velvet as velvet absorbs light. Mohair velvet, however, works well because it throws the light. even with that secretary who thinks your husband's wonderful, invite her over and put her under downlights." Ms. Smith suggested. Traeklighting is one type of lighting that the do-it-your- Downlights work well to , selfer can install and use ef- light a hall or art on the wall, fectively. she advised. but be careful using them in seating areas. as they cast shadows on one's face and visually age it. Ms. Smith warned.

But the tender mood was shattered abruptly when they were thrown out for such public displays of affection. .' Joyce, 31, and his companion are gay. They were so incensed at Webster fined KINGSTON, England -(AP) Martin Webster, organizer and strategist of Britain's white supremacist National Front, was given a suspende'd sentence and fined $322 for publishing material to incite racial hatred. Judge Arthur Figgis branded the Front's philosophy "Nazism" in his ruling this week, and also ordered the 36-year-old Webster to pay legal costs. OHMAN'S the "embarrassing and demeaning" incident Sept. 15 that they asked Roger Herbert, the city's director of licences and permits, to fine the lounge,, lift its licence temporarily, or warn management to stop, in their words, "such vicious and blatant discrimination." However Herbert told them dur ing a meeting Tuesday, attended also by the hotel's general manager, tftat the city-licencing bylaw forbids discrimination on the basis of race, creed or color. There is no mention of sexual orientation. " The Gay Alliance Toward Equality (GATE) now says it will ask city council to amend the bylaw and will press the provincial Human Rights Branch to broaden its legislation. Herbert said he agreed with hotel manager John Van Ommen that individual premises have the right to set standards of patron conduct. If gay affection is unaccept- can able to management, eject the offenders. In a letter to GATE, Van Ommen admitted that his staff handled the matter, in less than an ideal fashion, but maintained that Joyce and his friend "were behaving in a manner which is unacceptable by any standard of civilized public social behavior." But Dan Hann, spokesman for Vancouver's gay community, said homosexuals ought to have the same right as heterosexuals to show public affection. , ."Cooling it in public is the same as saying 'back to the closet'," he said. "Giving in to discrimination is self-defeating to the gay movement." " C 1 J 1 1 fv UN ;t 1 mum ) United Methodist Church Men's Club 2nd Annual Antique Show & Sale Friday Nov. 2nd 6.30 - 9 p.m. Sat.
