HOMES FOR AMERICANS ELEGANT AND WARM Jacqueline's New Home Has History THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1963 FOLDING D 'ft: BED CM. , UA.LU da pEl t BED CM FOLDING tin. I I Bv FRANCES LEWIXK Associated Press Staff Writer WASHINGTON (AP)-A home with a history and a warmth, filled with the art she loves, will greet Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy when she walks into her borrowed Georgetown residence Friday. The new address for the former First Lady—3038 N St.—is a three-story red brick dwelling with plenty of room. Undersecretary of State and Mrs. W. Av- er?ll Harriman, who own the house, have turned it over to the former First Lady and her children and have moved into a hotel. The house has 11 rooms and 5 baths. From the entrance hallway, with etchings by Picasso and Matisse in the stairwell, to the j picturesque dormered third! floor bedrooms, it is furnished i --» 3I1Y LIVING CM ^FOLDING DC|| ^l. | go | cio. | FOLDING D'ft J I BED (2M. for elegant and comfortable living. The dining room seats up to 18 comfortably. There are fireplaces in all but one room and the house contains a collection of French, English and Chinese lacquer furniture and Lowestoft china. And the art collection would be the pride of a museum. In the rear is a spacious, block-long walled and terraced garden, with boxwood and magnificent magnolia trees and a swimming pool. Aa she walks over the two Iranian rugs (gift of the shah) in the entrance hallway, past a Louis XV console with a big carved mirror of the same period of France's grandeur, Mrs. Kennedy will be in an atmosphere not unlike what she created in the White House. The history books of Gcovge- Farmers paid $175 million in 1962 for motor vehicle licenses and taxes. United Staes farmers paid about $300 million in sales taxes in 1962. town indicate this house dates back to the same period as the mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. which Mrs. Kennedy .is vacating after almost three years. It is said to have been built in 1800, the same year President John Adams moved into the unfinished White House. It was announced Tuesday that Mrs. Kennedy will move in Friday. There is no indication when President Johnson and his family will take occupancy of the White House, but probably soon. The Harrimans, who once occupied the governor's mansion in Albany, N.Y., bought the Georgetown home last spring., ^ Its prior owner was William s Scranton, now governor of' 1 Pennsylvania. NEVER ALONE HUMOR A man was on trial for an offense, and his sanity was being questioned. "Have you ever noticed if the accused was in the habit of talking to himself when he was alone?" asked counsel. "I have no idea." "No idea But surely you arc his closest friend?" "Yes, but I was never with him when he was alone." To furnish paper for a New York newspaper's annual use, the net annual growth from 500,000 acres must be used. Last year taxes on Illinois farm property were nearly $160 million. II 11 ii •i li li FOR A SMALL LOT,, with SO'foot frontage, this one and a half story house,-Plan HA319Y, is perfect. Two bedrooms arc downstairs and two more possible upstairs, plus upstair.'; bath. If the size of the lot permits, a garage can be added at a later date at the living room side, where it is convenient to the kitchen and will not obstruct any windows.

Timely Quotes People talk about the middle of the road as though it were unacceptable. . . There have to be compromises. The middle of the road is all of the usable surface. The extremes, right and left, are the gutters. —Dwight D. Eisenhower. It is a White House floor show led by an arrogant young man with an irascible temper. —Sen. Milward L. Simpson, D-Wyo., on the administration. It's a tribute to the skill of American farmers that using less than half the manpower and 12 million fewer acres than they did in 1920. they are now able to produce nearly twice as much food and fiber for the nation and the rest of the world.
