"There is no substitute for Canvas Awnings" CAMPBELL TENT & AWNING CO. 100 Central Ave. Dial 3-8885 r A rerlangular house is generally ess expensive to build, but an irregularly shaped dwelling is often considered more attractive. A way o resolve these conflicting desires is found in Ihis Plan No. 208 of architect Walter T. Anicka, 617 Forest, Ann Arbor, Mich. The main body of the house is= a 24 by 38-foot rectangle, complete in itself. The garage and n screened porch, under the same roof, are connected to the house proper, giving the whole structure an L-shape. Vertical siding is used, except on the gable ends. The up-and- down lines help to make the build ing seem taller. The architect rec ommends a fire-resistant asphal shingle roof. If light - colorec asphalt shingles are chosen from among the variety of solid ant blended colors available, they also will draw the eye up\\prd and increase apparent size. The inferior is ordered towart the rear for privacy's sake. The livjng room opens onto a large terrace. The screened porch woulc serve admirably as a children's play area in rainy weather. It is open to ( view from the kitchen enabling the mother to keep her children under observation. The house has a basement, an< a stairway leads up to second floor space. First floor area of the house is 860 square feet, a figun useful in estimating building 'cost (Detailed building plans are available from Walter T. Anicka (117 Forest, Ann Armor, Mich.

The lac bug, or coccus lacca, feeds on the sap of trees in India, Burma and Siam and deposits raw shellac on branches and twigs. The coating is similar to that formed by ice. It is harvested, washed, ground and sifted. Then it is shipped in orange colored flake form. When cut with alcohol, it makes pure orange shellac. When bleached it is the white shellac popular for preserving the grain and texture of woods. Shellac is an ancient expoi-t of India. It was used by Akbar the great Mogul of Hindujfan, who built thfrTaj Mahal, Pearl Mosque and other great structures of Delhi. It was used by the cabinet makers of Paris in the 17th and 18th centuries. Louis XVI had the inlaid floors of the Versailles Hal of Mirrors finished with shellac Lafayette found it used on the floors of the fine Colonial homes oi America.

ALL TYPES and STYLES of CURTAIN RODS BUCK'S 655 EA$T BROADWAY PAINT and FLOOR COVERING STORE DIAL 3-3031 Do close the draperies of your picture window at night. Any window, unless lighted from outside becomes a black area at night. The larger your picture window, the greater is your need for draperies after dark. Notice how the closing of draperies at night seems to make your room feel cozier — and smaller. This is the reverse of the principle for making rooms seem larger. Don't place tall lamps, vases or statuary in front of your picture window. Anything standing up in front of the window reduces the amount of light coming in and violates the idea of the window as an open connection between indoors and outdoors. Don't use ruffled curtains across your picture window, even when the other windows of the room have them. They are no more appropriate for a picture window than they would be for an oil painting. Ruffled- side drapes will maintain the character of your room. . Do choose side d r apes that will not clash with the picture outside your window. A flowering garden cannot compete with the overwhelming blooms of a large floral print.
