LEWIS tea/ fstele Uitor e t Thi Star THE BIGGEST OPENING ■ In the 13-yetr history of the Washington Home Show was recorded last night at the District National Guard Armory. A total of 5,187 persons attended during the four hour opening night, a greater attendance than on any of the eight-hour opening days in the previous 12 years of the show, except the one in 1953. Six years ago the eight hour opening day had a total attendance of 6,159. But last year, first-day attendance reached only 969 persons owing to a blizzard that occurred on the same day. "We're more than pleased with the turnout for the first Friday-night opening in the show's history,” James W. Pearson, executive vice presi dent of the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Washington, said last night. The association sponsors the exhibition at the Nine teenth and East Capitol street two-acre Armory annually to show latest developments in home-building design, equip ment and appliances. This year’s show empha sizes outdoor living. It has attracted an unusual group of displays, Including a large concrete, permanent-type swimming pool, boats, patio and terrace equipment and related products. “We think the show this year has an entirely ‘new look’ as a result of incor porating outdoor living as part of the theme.” Mr. Pearson said. “The boat section was one of the big hits. Among exhib its are a 35-foot power yacht, a Swedish cruiser and small demountable boats of a type used twice by individ ual persons in which to cross the Atlantic." A 17-foot outboard motor boat having a reported re tail value of $1,385 was awarded as a prize by the association last night to Betty L. Shanks, 2109 7 street N.W. The winner was not pres ent at the time of the award, and will be notified by reg istered letter mailed last night, Mr. Pearson said. The association's program calls for her to accept a cer tificate for the boat in an appearance on television at 11:30 a.m. Monday on Sta tion WMAL-TV. Another boat will be awarded today. Also on to day's bill of events are skin diving demonstrations at 4 pm. and 9 p.m. A fashion show around the pool built right on the Armory floor will be held at 4 p.m. tomorrow. The exposition will be held 10 nights and nine days, through March 1. Daily and Sunday hours are from 2 to 11 p.m. The show opened last night at 7 p.m. and con tinued until 11 p.m. The home builders’ associ ation rents the Armory for the event at a total cost of $9,197. The show is financed largely through space charges to exhibitors. Gl Housing Up in Month GI housing activity during January was well above that of January, 1958, in all cate gories, the Veterans Admini stration has reported. The most dramatic rise in the figures was the number of appraisal requests the agency received for proposed dwellings. This January there were 17,931 such requests, compared with 5,252 in the same month a year ago. Applications for home loan guaranty received by the VA were 17,395 during the month, against 7,680 for January, 1958. Requests received for ap praisals on existing homes were more than triple the number of January, 1958. This January saw 6,396 as compared to 2,052 a year ago. The smallest rise between the two years ’ was in the field of homes started under the VA guaranty program. There were 4,074 in January a year ago and 6,931 this January.
