GRM - 7-15 and finishes have become so flilfhenllc In appearance that even wdfttiholes are reproduced," he says, Subject to .funk The average consumer "has been subject to so much junk for years that manufacturers are retaining the talents of knowledgeable people in the field of fine antiques and fine reproductions so ordinary Americans can enjoy the luxury of living with them," he says, • He illustrated by showing how to use a new leakwood masonite, available in 4 by 8 or 4 by 10 foot lengths, in a library room. The authentic look is accomplished by photographing fine veneers to get the actual graining, he explains, and these are put on steel plate rollers and rolled out while color pigment is controlled. He •uses it for bookshelves in the same room. Finds Several Ways There are several 'ways to install it, he says. One way is with steel brads on wall surfaces, filling nail heads with putty. Moldings are tacked to baseboard and ceiling for finish. Or the panels may be tacked to Vi by 2-inch wood strips to the existing wall about every four feet. Corner moldings may be mitred. The panelling may be tacked right to house studs in a new house, eliminating plaster. The material is fire resistant, washable and childproof. Burge, father of three, says it is ideal in a child's room. "But if used in a child's room, where it is extremely practical, it should be combined with brilliant colors — oranges and yellows." Shapes Design The library room designed by Burge had a beige and black checkered rug on the floor, a leopard ottoman and chair cushion. "Colors that are especially good with dark-toned woods include the chocolate browns, beiges and contrasting colors such as coral and other shades of red. Almost all the autumn colors are good with it. I'd rather use warm colors than blues and greens," he says. Burge is particularly ecstatic about new furniture reproductions. "All the furniture in thrs new collection is being reproduced with distressed markings of the authentic old furniture — fly specks, worm holes, three or four layers of pigment that make it look real old." Burge made the master models of an 18th Century line of furniture that is to be mass produced. "If we can improve the taste levels of people, it will help everyone," he says. In his opinion the cost of furniture should not be prohibitive. For Your Convenience NEW OFFICE HOURS 8:30 A.M. to 5 P.M.

Allergy Ills Are Relieved By Air Conditioner System If asthma or hay fever has you wheezing and sneezing your way through the summer, take heart. You may be able to cut down on the itchy eyes, stuffy nose and labored breathing by simply turning on the room air conditioner. The Medical Committee of the Allergy America Foundation of says that as long as you stay in an air conditioned room, your symptons often will be relieved. And if you have an air conditioner in your bedroom, you won't be so apt to be kept awake in the nightly battle for a breath of pollen-free air. In using room air conditioners for the relief of symptoms, the Allergy Foundation cautions that it is important to set the thermostat of the air conditioner properly so that the temperature within the room is not more than 12 degrees below that of the outside air. "Extreme cooling* will often irritate the membranes of the nose and bronchial tubes," the voluntary health organization says in its booklet, "Asthma, Hay Fever and Other Allergies." Recognizing the benefits of air conditioning, the Federal Government now allows a medical expense tax deduction for room air conditioners purchased when physicians prescribed them as medically necessary for heart patients, asthmatics and allergenics. The new deduction went into effect for the first time in 1962. There were 97 million days of restricted activity reported due to asthma and hay fever in 1959 and I960, the Allergy Foundation states Only Renewable Trees are Nature's only renewable resource, and will grow from seed once the current crop is cut Wood is unlike oils and minerals which, once mined, are gone for ever. in its pamphlet. The victims were allergic, or unusually sensitive, to air-borne dusts, mold spores, and pollens from weeds, grasses, trees and plants which do not affect non-aiiergic persons. Seasonal hay fever especially is caused almost entirely by these airborne allergens or inhalants. Room air conditioners can re- duct the amount of pollen in the air at the height of the ragweed season by as much as 98 per cent, tests by Dr. Orren D. Chapman, head of the Bacteriology Department at Syracuse University, showed. Other forms of relief from the distressing symptoms of asthma and hay fever are drugs and series of injections which help desensitize allergic patients as long as they continue the treatment. Immunization by a single injection is also under study at the present time, the Allergy Foundation states in its pamphlet. The free pamphlet may be obtained by writing the Allergy Foundation of America, 801 Second Avenue, New York 17, N.Y. Making An Entrance Dramatic is the way to make an entrance. Use vertical wood screens to mask uninteresting en trances from garage to home, Cedar posts and one inch lumber is ideal for this purpose. During the summer, every homeowner should take a e&ld, hard look at the performance of the heating system in his home. There are six important checkpoints the homeowner can use to determine the efficiency of his heating system before next winter's healing season begins. The homeowners should answer the following: l. Is the system properly tem­ pering tfiillrf I. Are floori, Walls Nftf othW surfaces warmed? 3. Is heating smooth arid *t «8 frorrt floor to celling? 4. Does the system create drafts? 6. Is there a constant, gentle circulation of air? 6. Is the heat clean and dust free?
