(UP) — The Chicago Advisory Rent Board yesterday recommended to tho housing expediter a 10 per cent n- eross-tho-board jonl Increase for some. 500,000 rental units In tho Chicago area embracing Cook, Lake, unpngfl »nd Kane Counties. The recommendation would not Floor Suggested As Starting Point In Re-Decorating There must be » starling polni from which to launch a decorating scheme. The first rule is to bcgit: with the big things first, and grndn ally work around to the small de tails. The reason for this is simple l&mps and accessories must have a good background. The right carpet, or rug, will bring unity and color harmony to that newly decorated room as nothing else can. It will bring warmth and beauty to the room. H is the central point around which the color, design and feeling ol any room 1* built. Decide which area* where design or pattern will be used. It can be the carpet and draperies, or the walls and upholstery, or any combination o! these. You cannot use design everywhere if you wish 10 have a harmonious room. An early decision must also be made in the feeling you want a room to convey. Is it to be modern or traditional? If traditional, select a combination ol periods. The floor covering should reflect the character ol the lurnishings if it is to be a pleasing foundation lor the furniture. If the room U to have a modern approach, an interesting texture weave, carpet or rug in a high or pastel color, is a fine foil for tin; simple lines of Ughl-loned functional furniture. The spirit of a room Is best 'interpreted by the floor decoration. Wool floor coverings are a major Investment and quality is important. o a residence at 2124 Henley; estimated cost, $1,000.

It can lend either | dignity or Informality, and can i add to or detract tremendously \ from the character of the house. Possible front door treatments are as varied as the personalities of home owners and caji be effected at low cost. Simple lattice-work or false shutters, for example, will add distinction to »n otherwise uninteresting entrance. Glass block on either side of the door will give an air of modernity to the older house. False columns can sometimes be used to advantage. A surprisingly new and different appearance can be given to the entire exterior of a house with a little thought as to the entrance. Better Material Supply Spurs Home Building Increased production and consequently a more uniform flow of building materials Into the hands of distributors In recent weeks lias enabled home builders to slightly reduce their costs, 11 was revealed today after a nation-wide survey by the Construction Research Bureau of New York. One of the biggest savings comes from the fact that with materml more plentiful, a bulkier is not faced with expensive delays. A house can now be completed in the normal three to five months instead of the nine to eleven months required during the years of scarcity. Furthermore, this improved supply has slightly reduced handling costs and other overhead charges faced by distributors when they had to deal in small quantities. In many sections ol the country such savings have been passed along to the builder. As a result ol the better production and supply situation, couptecl with a resumption of iicw home buying by the public, building activity throughout the nation has shown a marked increase during the past few weeks. A pick-up in sales of new homes is rojx>rted from most areas and as these houses arc sold, builders I begin work on more homes. Ne-,v I dwelling units are now being started at the^rate of 756,000 a year.
