the entrance door this house has a woodsy style reminiscent of many Early American homes It not only uses boards and battens on all sides but it has a wood-shingled roof Such shingles of course should be of the fire-resistant type to conform with code regulations in many communities In areas where wood roofs are not acceptable the recommendation is to select harmonizing asphalt shingles from the wide variety of available colors There are four bedrooms to take care of a sizable family But since two of these are on the first floor a smaller family need not finish the second floor unless and until it were required Both of the first-floor bedrooms are at the rear of the house with a bathroom conveniently between them Typical of the old floor plan styling this layout has the living and dining rooms on opposite sides of the foyer with an open-sided stair separating the two rooms A dramatic touch has been given by architect Rudolph A Matern to the 21 - foot living S-52 statistics Design S-52 has a living room dining room foyer family room-kitchen two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor totaling 1459 square feet There is a screened porch to the rear of the family room and a large side-front porch at the right side of the house There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor totaling 607 square feet The over-all dimensions of 57 4" by 44’ 11" include both

m m u n i c ations Commission (FCC) has decided to take a second look at Alabama Television Inc before permitting the firm to build a new television station to operate on Channel 21 in Birmingham The FCC had previously granted the permit but ordered a rehearing following charges against Alabama Television of misrepresenting facts and racial exclusion in hiring policies The charges were brought by two unsuccessful applicants for the right to build the new UHF station Chapman C T Mabry Jr F'uncral for Charles T Mabry Jr 63 of Chicago who died Wednesday will be at 3 pm Monday at Davenport and Harris F'uncral Home with burial in Grace Hill Mr Mabry lived in Birmingham many years before moving to Chicago about 10 years ago Survivors include a sister Mrs Catherine M Kigh of Chicago Mrs Adams

Cemetery Johns-Rid-out’s directing Surviving are a son Robert C Adams Leeds a sister Mrs Louise Kirpatrick Justice Atlanta her parents Mr and Mrs J O Bolt Fort Valley Ga room with an open-balconied ceiling The balcony is centered on a stone fireplace wall and does not detract frirni the upstairs bedroom space because its location is well removed from the bedroom area If the second floor is not to be divided into two rooms and a bath for a while the balcony rail and the ceiling above the balcony would still be finished To the rear of the dining room is an old-fashioned combined kitchen and family room stretching to 23’ 6" Three sides of the family room portion have exposure The rear wall faces a screened porch and has access to it The combined kitchen-family room can be reached from either the front door or the rear parch without going through any other rooms Upstairs if finished according to the architect's plans there are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a large storage area under the porch roof The dramatic atmosphere of the living room is matched on the exterior by wrapping a large side porch around the front and doing the same thing with the roof over it By building the family room and rear porch on the other side of the house as a one-story structure any boxiness of the basic design is eliminated To see how effectively this has been achieved look first at the floor plans then at the rendering of the exterior of the house The outside materials are wood timber posts boards and batten stone wood roof shingles steel casement windows and rough hewn boards They have been put together in a manner designed to satisfy those who ask for something a little more a little different in the way of a house exterior baby blueprints ( ) ( ) Radio and Television Co and Birmingham R r 0 a d c asting Co and WRMG-TV which has sought to change its present slot from Channel 42 to Channel 21 WBMG’s petition according to the F'CC "was based on the involvement of John S Jemison Jr president director and 162 per cent owner of Alabama Television in an incident in which a cemetery controlled by Mr Jemison refused to inter the body of a black soldier killed in Vietnam in 1969” The FCC further said " there appeared to be discrepancies between Alabama Television's statements anil evidence discovered after the hearing " and “ on the basis of the record it could not he determine! whether Alabama Television had made any efforts to contact black individuals ” The cemetery incident referred to the case of Pfc Rill Terry whose family was initially denied permission to bury the infantryman in Film-wood Cemetery In response to the charge the FCC said that Alabama Television's petition claimed: That because of the cemetery's many contractual obligations based on racial restrictions it would not legally bury the dead soldier but that the cemetery had cooperated in a court test of the legality of the restrictions which resulted in a judicial order declaring them void” The order for a new hearing was approved by five of the FCCs seven commissioners All four parties involved will be allowed to widen restate and amend their petitions to the agency ‘Ef'lQ

Monday morning and continuing about three days until that section is completed through traffic wiil be detoured around that area "One benefit of doing the work now instead of earlier is that people can now cross to the north side of town on 1-65" Robinson said lie said he city is trying to “minimize Bank robber gets 12-year sentence WeIlorn Winters Venable who was arrested by FBI agents an hour

will be closed for about three weeks from 52nd-st to Dan Hudson-blvd “It's going to be very difficult to detour this traffic" Robinson said "A possibility is to use 52nd-st Clairmont-av and Momingside-dr back into Montclair” he said "Another possible detour is Mcmory-ln by way of Euclid-av and Reech-cir” he said Robinson said neither of the two detours is satisfactory because each is out-of-the-way and the roads are narrow “We suggest they look for a new route possibly 78 East or Monteva)lo-rd if they are destined for the central business district of Birmingham ’ he said The
