Kighly geraniums set out in front will mark th* grounds of Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Stolze. whose gardens fronting the Mississippi include a terraced rock garden. A stone walk leads from the bar- hecue pit and circles along the river. Also in Fall-mount is the informal garden of Mr. and Mrs. R. T.. Bassett which is especially suited for outdoor living and entertaining. A grass terrace sloping down to a lawn surrounded by flowering shnlhs, perennials, and roses with a backdrop of dogwood, makes a natural selling for the slyle show of summer and sports clothes, which will be held at 1 o'clock and again at 3 o'clock to accommodate the many sightseers expected. In the heart of the North Al- Inn business district lies the garden of Mr. and Mrs. William M.

At La Vis) a high on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River are a sunken garden, two greenhouses filled with blooms, woodland paths, and a mile-long walkway commanding the river, attractions at this 300-acre estate, now the home of the Oblate Fathers. Those interested in homes will have an unusual opportunity to compare one built 120 years ago with those showing the latest in modern design. The home of Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Depperman on Henry street was built in 1S.'',3, and is an old Alton landmark. It was the first house in Middletown and the only one between downtown and Upper Alton. Many of its windows still contain the original glass. Colonial in feeling, it is distinguished by a spacious entrance hall with curving staircase, arched doorways, and fine woodwork and floors. A mantel of classic design above a dark marble fireplace add to the dig- nity and grace of the living room Eighteenth c e n t u r y furniture complements the finely proportioned dining room and leaded j window-panes around the French ', doors in the sunroom lend a | decorative note. In sharp contra-;! to the Drn- perinnn home is the 4-room. one- story brick house on five levoK- belonging to Mr and Mrs. H;ur\ ; K. Deucker in Rosen ood HcighK . Built a year ;l gri. tin* homo has combined li\ine and dining f room, platinum stain slab doors. , cork floor in the guest mom. and j an ultra-modern kitchen. j The built-in theme is dominant ! in the homo of Mr. and Mrs i C. H. Decker perched on a hill; top in Rosewood Heights. The j living room has a raised fireplace with adjoining built-in planters. The knotty pine study has built-in movie projectors, movie screen, file cabinet, and a built-in bed. Among other features are the built-in sun lamp in the bathroom. Built six months ago, the 7- room brick home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl T. Crumrine in Rosewood Heights, has a 30-foot living room with a huge picture window overlooking grass terraces sloping down to a wooded area. A glassed-in sun porch, utility room, modern kitchen, and adjacent eating area are designed for comtorl and pleasant living. The three-year-old home of Mr. and Mrs. K. V. Giehl on the Kdwardsville road s k i 1 If u 1 1 y blends the old and the new. The owners have achieved a home which includes all of the modern conveniences at 1he same time providing a tasteful selling for many family heirlooms, among them a Victorian sofa with rare shield design, and a 100-year-old walnut dropleaf table in the dining nook.
