"Since moving Aug. 31st into our new home on South Jerome street, I've certainly enjoyed my new built- ins," Mrs James said. And then added, "I rather suspect my husband thought he might get more baking out of me with the new "eye-levej" oven, and I guess maybe he has, too." Mrs James' oven has a chrome finish with pink handles to match her kitchen walls, The burners are surrounded with chrome also and. above them a ventilator pulls the cooking fumes directly out of the house.
