If you want to take a few \viid peeks into the future, just buy a sciettce-fieUon movie script! Two years ago. when Columbia bought Curt Siodmak's original story, "Earth Vs. The Flying Sautters," for the Clover Productions film of the same title, they hit tomorrow's jackpot. Not only did Ktr Siodmiak neatly wrap up one completed script, he lossed in a large portion of story that dealt with what later be- c a m e President Eisenhower's "Satellite Program." As a result, producer Charles Schneer and director Fred F. Scars turned in the first science- fiction drama to embrace parallel details of the satellite project. At_ a time when the whole world was directing its attention to interplanetary 'scientific progress, Columbia had reidy for ro- le;-sr a timely picture l!;at Mad boon two years in the niiikinu. Not just a sketchy, iHU'0-ovr:r- iightly film, remotely tied to the news — but a comprehensive coverage resulting from the two years of scientific, research. Effort spent to give "Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers" a truly plausible background.

After all, Columbia picked up the tab for the copyright fee and it certainly wasn't buttons that the bank dished out to Mr Siodmak for Columbia's oblong strip of paper! There are some great scenes made on location, in Washington, where the government cooperated fully with producer Schneer and director Sears. They were allowed to make shots of ;i space-man on the Capitol steps. Mobile units used the While House and other government structures as backgrounds. Perhaps everyone was so relieved to find it was only a movie "invasion" that Columbia's "invaders" were warmly welcomed! * # « They don't have to iwist OUR arm. We're convinced!

Include lighting in plans for remodeling and redecorating as \yell as outdoors for outdoor living. Use lighting recipes for best results. No less than 95 per cent of all homes in the average American community lack adequate lighting, according to a survey made by General Electric home lighting experts. As a result of their poor lighting, the homes generally prove, to have a gloomy, unpleasant, inhospitable atmosphere, the survey revealed. ,,' Evan more important, the lighting is so inadequate in quantity and" quality MS often to be tirihrf to the eyes of the occupants. It also is objectionable in that it makes slower and more difficult such tasks about the home as reading, sewing, shaving, applying makeup, ironing, and working in the kitchen and laundry. In some cases it even makes for unsafe conditions. ". Light Conditioning "Light conditioning of -the homes in winch we live can and should be the next great step forward in American home betterment," according to Eugene W. Commery, of Cleveland, illuminating engineer in charge of General Electric's residential lighting activities. "People in all parts of the country are dissatisfied. Their need and desire for belter home lighting is real, and growing," Commery says. He points out that the gap between home lighting and that of the store, office and factory, steadily widens. "Every day w o m e n come home from the vivid colors of fresh fruits, vegetables and meats in the brightly lighted supermarket. And men come home from the office or factory, alert and happy, to lighting that outs them to sleep over the evening paper," the G-E lighting expert declares. !

It's the most look'ed-al area of the house. It's also the part that gets the most abuse and hence must be the toughest. In winter, it faces the abuse of grating ice and snow. In summer, it's cooked by the sun. Still it's expected to be handsome. The roof can do it, too. Modern asphalt shingles are well suited to the contradictory demands of toughness and-beauty. They come in a wide variety of colors and shades. This of- Mers new decorative schemes for the whole house which were impossible in pre-World War II years, when most of the existing roofs Were put on. At that time only a relatively few colors were generally available. The new* pastel shades are particularly ..well adapted to the popular ranch- style houses. Because of spe± cial application methods they can be applied on roofs with slopes down to two inches par foot. In addition to choice of color, the home-owner can pick from a variety of shingle snap-, e.':, each of which can present different designs on the roof. Among the more common shingle shapes arc the three- tab square-butt, strip shingle, the two- or three-tab hcxajp- nal strip shingle, the individual hexagonal shingle, giant individual shingle and tbe lock-down shingle. There also is a choice of roofing weight. Shingles weigh between 135 and 350 pounds per -square (covering 100 square feet.) The heavier the shingle, the longer-lasting it is. If the roof has been well taken care of in the past, new asphalt shingles" probably can be laid right over the old. This saves money since no labor is used in ripping off old shingles. In addition, the old roofing gives the house protection while reroofing is going on. To a large extent, the roof is not better than the man who puts it on.- It's best -to "deal with local contractors who have a good reputation in the community.
