Most archllccls agree that the new homes of tomorrow will feature the low roof line, bright with' cheerful, blended colors of fire- resistant material such as asphalt shingles. In a recent comprehensive study of postwar home desires of thousands of families'the SMAI.I, HOMR8 GUIDE.found that asphalt shingles ranked first hi roofing materials. This was attributed to their fire-resistant qualities, their appealing color designs, atul their adaptability to most any style of roof.

Build A Studio Room As Aid To Orderly House Everyone has had the experience of unexpected guests coming to call just when you are in the midst of a messy sewing job for the children, with odds .and ends of material, thread and assorted clothing strewn all over the floor. That's why women arc demanding a studio room in their new homes after the wnr. A studio room, says Practical Builder, is an exl™> room, usually small, where all of .lie messy odd jobs that are always gobbing up in the normal household performed without interfering "with the tidy orderliness of the other rooms In the house. Since guests will not see this room, it need not be kept in spic ami span condition all the time. However, since most rooms in post-war homes will be "dual purpose" rooms, the studio room can be planned to serve also as a guest room, with a pull-out bed, extendable couch and oilier inviting furnishings for the over-night or weekend guests.

In the planned aundricK in homes after V-Day, il will no longer be necessary to se aside a day of the week as laundrj day. Instead, llic planners say. the laundry can be done at odd moments when other duties arc not pressing for attention;, in fact, clothes will be 'washed, rinsed and damp-dried, ready for ironing, while the housewife is cooking or working in adjacent rooms. In no event will the familiar old stationary tubs in the basement ami the criss-crossing clothes lines under the basement ceiling survive the post-war period, builders say. Suppose there weren't enough money to bring your child into the world? In a tearful letter, Pvt. R.'s wife told him she was poing to have a hab)'.:Thcre wasn't enough money to pay for medical care and ho;pi(alizalion. Helpless, Pvt. R. appealed to die lied Cross. In a few days he r»reiicd word dni ihcy line! assisted his wife ia WPlybg for emergency maternity and infant cure. Suppose you were wounded, disabled, jobless and ducouragcd? A Marine Privnte, he was wounded in the South Pacific and discharged for disability. He went home discouraged at the prospect of making liis living again. Unable 10 take up his former irade, in desperation lie appealed .to the Red Cross. They put him in touch with the proper agency-he's doing swell, now. Suppose your moihor were ill and without funds?

They did. Now, anxiety lifted, Seaman T. M. is a better fislitinj; man. Another example of your Red Cross in action. Suppose your son were taken prisoner? Imagine llic anxiety of the parent* of Pvt. H. D., who had had no word from him in niondis. The lied Cross sent a welfare inquiry. And ilicn die International lied Cross reported that he was . healthy and well, and was receiving regularly the American lied Cross packages iliat helped keep up his spirits. Your money gels llic packages to him. The Red Cross can't do this work without your help! The actual cases outlined above illustrate just a few of the thousands of ways in \Uiich the Red Cross helps our fighting men—at home and overseas. But without your help there upuld !ie,no Red Cross to do this humanitarian work. For the Red Cross is wholly dependent on the money that you and other sympathetic Americans contribute. A'nd.after three years of war, the work of your Hcd Cross is greater than ever. p - ^, Think of die suffering you can a1Ic\ iate by your contribution—and how proud *• you can be of your part in this work.
