SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 9, IMS "THE HOUSE OF THE WEEK" Pleasant Ranch Has Convertible Area By ANDY LANG cost of extras in a hom Is Increased when additions an riide- long after the house is And yet we all like to sa we. can in the initial con sfruction by leaving an optiona item to a latter date. One way of having your sav ings now and allowing the lee way you will needdn the future Is shown in this ranch house de. signed by 'Architect Lester Cohen, The convertible area is seen as a po'fch behind the garage. But with very little change, it can be turned into a family room with a central fireplace, sliding glass doors to a rear terrace and ready access to and from the kitchen or living room. These are assets most persons want in a family room. In considering living area, the entry foyer must be taken into account. It's a modest luxury that pays for itself in helping to keep the living room "company fresh." Because this room is not needed for access to any area of the house, furniture selection placement can he as formal as you like. The view window overlooks the entrance porch, offering privacy along with a nice outlook. Access to the service lavatory is a practical idea for guest use. Whether the family room or porch is selected, it's nice to be able to reach the informal area from the living room. The dining room has just about the, same privacy features described for the living room. Sliding glass doors at the back- open to the outdoor dining porch in mild weather or present a lovely view at all times. The roofed porch can be used as an outdoor living area in the summer, or when finished as a family room, can add the pleasures of an informal living room all year The kitchen, with a corner dinette, is a square, compact and perfect area for all your needs. With the 1 addition of the pantry, lavatory, mudroom and laundry, the kitchen area becomes more than twice as big--yet with individual zones. Each section is easier to keep clean, there is better circulation of air, and each job gets done with a i i of fuss and with equipment intended just for it. The cellar entry is located with an eye to CONTEMPORARY HOME--The continuous roof enhances the contemporary long look of this three-bedroom ranch house. Its special feature is a porch behind the garage capable of later enclosure to make a family room. The stone and porch siding of board and batten add contrasting harmony. step-saving, work-saving con- You can get to the aundry from the garage, mud- room or porch. Here again a imall space set aside for a specific purpose preserves the valu- ible functions of the larger area round it. For example, no messy I a 11 or kitchen floor to when supplies are brought on a rainy day. The three-bedroom wing is to he left of the center hall, pro- ected against the activity noises )f the living areas. Bedroom 2 ould hold two active youngsters vithout crowding in a family of five. The master bedroom has he jear corner, and with its big closet area and private bath, of- ers real comfort to the parents, 'he family bathroom and master avatory are back to back, 'lumbing economy worth noting. Stone and board-and-batten iding are used as exterior ma- erials and are highlighted by wning-opening windows for a leasanl contemporary look.

Judge Dunne said the complainants could be absolutely right, but he had no authority to answer for the city. One protester raised an unanswered question that the owners were trying to get all the tenants to move so Ihey could sell the property to the city. The protesters indicated they withheld their February rent to make up for conditions dating back for months, hut since they stayed this was not legal. Miss Coyne apparently will pay her January Judge Dunne indicated a "satisfactory adjustment" was made in her case and she will stay.

As the red blood moves on from arteries to capillaries (smaller blood vessels) the corpuscles give up some of their oxygen. When this happens, the blood turns darker. This is why veins look blue when seen through the skin. The blood in them has actually become darker. When 1 blood from veins is exposed to the air, it sometimes looks red because the hemoglobin on the surface turns to oxyhetnoglobin, a combination of oxygen and hemoglobin. Red blood corpuscles are produced in the red marrow of the bones. When fhey enter the blood steam they last about 120 days. Then they break up.when they are worn out. This happens as they pass the spleen. The iron in the corpuscles is carried to the liver and stored there. When the bone marrow needs iron fbr making new red corpuscles it draws it from the liver. About 10 million red cells are born and 10 million destroyed during each second of man's life! The red corpuscles, as well as other cells and substances vital to life, are all suspended in a liquid called plasma. About 90 per cent of this plasma is water. The materials dissolved in or carried by the plasma include calcium, potassium, sugar, fat, a salt and proteins. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Jane: Docs the new florist in town have any children?

WHY WE SAY IT! The word "yacht" has an interesting origin. It comes from I a Middle Dutch word "jacht" which originally was "jagen." Now "jagen" meant to "hunt," and in the old days pirates used these fast boats to "hunt" their prey. So a "yacht" at-one time meant a pirate's ship! Joseph Cclcstinc, Cpl. i "crone, Cpl. John Wccst.
