HEATING THE WHITE HOUSE
Open Pireplncen Made l'e of by tle
With a thought to solid comfort the
architects of the White House planned
an open fireplace for almost every
room in the house, but not since the
furnaces were put in years ago have
they been generally used until the ad
vent of President Koosevelt and his
family, writes the Washington corre
spondent of the Philadelphia Press.
Mrs. Roosevelt always has open fires
in the rooms in which she receives her
guests on reception days.
The president and. In fact, the entire
family use the library more than has
any president's family in many years,
and an open fire glows on the hearth
all the time. Each of the other living
rooms have open grates, and they are
kept in use most of the time. In the
executive part of tiie White House the
cieii tires aI.;o are used, and nothing
so accentuates the southern air of the
White House as the carrying of coal
in huge scuttles from room to room to
replenish the tires.
It is a matter of unceasing interest
to the northern bred children of the
president to v:ilh the firemen keep
the fires going. They tire planning
greit times for Christmas, when corn
popping over the bright coals will be
one of their amusements.
