LIVING ON THE ROOFS
Yuma people know that the
roof is the "coolest room in
the house," but the people in
many other parts of the
country, have been answering
the question: "Why not use
it?" with the response: "Sure
enough, why not?"
In New York there are
ttiany roof gardens, but as a
rule most of these are eng
closed, and are in fact more
like sun parlors. In Wash
ington it is different, for
there a roof is a real roof.
The Army and Navy Club
and the National Press Club
maintain elaborate dining ac
or a dozen stories from the
ground, and at night these
are splendidly lighted, and
hundreds of people seek the
cool, pleasant retreats.
Some of the leading hotels
maintain roof gardens, and
serve food, music and enter
tainment, at prices as high as
their midsummer establish
ments. Many Washington
ifiomes also have roof gardens,
that are used as a sort of cool-ling-off
place at night. One
of the handsomest new resi
dences of Washington has
been built by former Senator
Scott, who has become a
Washington banker. All of
the modern comforts that
could be thought of have
been provided on the roof and
he has a home that ought to
bring him and his family a
lot of happiness in the capital
