Housework Lightened
$y Modernizing or
Streamlining Rooms
By W. Wadsworth Wood
Marked improvement can be made
m any room of the house by mod
ernizing or streamlining.
In the first illustration, you see
* typical old-fashioned kitchen
which has no particular co-ordi
nation of equipment, and likewise
•.••.tel
requires a great amount of back
bending effort to keep clean and
orderly. The second picture shows
an identical room after it has been
modernized. There is no change
in the dimensions or in the placing
of the equipment, but the ease with
which the room can be kept in order
is quite obvious.
The greater part of the improve
ment comes from the counter-tops
which connect the fixtures, obvi
ating steps in preparing a meal.
The next great improvement comes

$300,000 warehouse under way—A two-story, $300,000 warehouse is being built at the
southwest corner of Bladensburg road and New York avenue N.E. for Smith’s Transfer & Storage
Co., Inc., which will be that firm’s 18th warehouse in the District area. Space for an office,
store and cleaning plant will be included, Arthur Clarendon Smith, president, said. Architect
is Francisco & Jacobus, New York City. Builder is Allen C. Minnix. The firm, said Mr. Smith is
consolidating its storage facilities in larger buildings.
from the fact that there are no
places left which the housewife
must clean beneath. Everything is
Inclosed and built down to floor
level; presenting a definite and
easily cleaned floor surface.
The next improvement is obvious
in the many and well-placed wall
cabinets which can accommodate
every pot, pan and cooking utensil,
#o that the room will always be
orderly.
Every room in the house is sub
ject to the same treatment as the
kitchen. Living rooms, bedrooms
and bathrooms, may be smoothed
out and made easier to keek In
proper shape by modernizing the
room plan.
A short time ago, one of the
largest hotels in the country made
an experiment by modernizing the
furniture and equipment on three
of the floors. The result showed
that the rooms could be put in
order in 30 per cent less time than
it required to make up a room which
had not been planned with a defi
nite idea of saving housekeeping
effort.

Its coverage depends on the kind
of material to which It is applied
and to the porosity of it. Generally
speaking, a gallon will cover about
300 square feet of masonry and
more than twice that surface on
plaster or metal.
For work below grade, a heavier
type of this material is made. Two
coats should be used to stop seepage

cracks or holes In the cellar floor
where water pressure has broken the
cement. This material, in powder
form, is mixed with a special liquid,
it will seal perfectly but its appli- ;
cation is a matter of speed because
■t hardens into a solid mass almost ,
immediately after it is mixed.
While this material effectively will
seal the hole even against pressure,
If the cellar floor is weak, the pres
sure probably will force a break in
mother part of the surface. It is ■
well first to find out if the rest of
the floor is strong enough to hold i
sack pressure. If not, then it would i
ce cheaper in the long run to have >
the floor properly and strongly laid.

;ion of trisodium phosphate (large

gallon of water. All traces of the
lolution must be thoroughly washed
jfT; otherwise your new enamel will
lot stick. Then apply a boat of
juff-colored flat wall oil paint. When
iry, finish with a varnish stain of
,he color that you wish.
While still wet, grain the surface
rith a wood graining tool. But I
believe you would get a much more
attractive effect if you refinish the

Worn Looking Luggage.
Question,.Could you tell me how
to refinish my luggage? The smaller
suitcase looks worn and tacky.
Answer. If it is leather, clean
it first with a good saddle soap and
then apply a leather preparation on
sale at a leather goods store. The
dealer can give you something suit
able.
Marks On Asphalt Tile Floor.
Question. I have a kitchen set
with chrome legs that make marks
on my asphalt tile floor. I have
tried lacquering the chairs, but this
chips and is not successful. Can
you advise me how to prevent my
floor from becoming marked?
Answer. A carpenter or handy
man could make skits or runners,
for the chrome tubes out of maple
wood. This should protect the tile.
Also, you can help save the tile
surface by waxing with a no-rub type
of wax. Do not use paste wax
fqr your type of flooring.
