Beautiful Home With out Walls or Doors A spacious and handsome house, without any wals or doors, is the ex traordinary dwelling whihch serves a a is law as a home for a Berkeey, Calif, Irer ead family. This wall-less house is no mekes shift dwelling but suhstantialy and artistically built according to the spécial design of the mother ot the large family who felt that all concern ed would live more natural and health fnl lives if unprotected by walls and artificial heat The home is so ua 4 ususi that- it i j net easy to descrihe ft in ordinary architectural terms. It consists essentially of a long con crete floor protected by a roof of cor responding shape and size, supported by Corinthian pillars of concrete, near ly 18 feet high. The roof is shaped like a turtleback and is pierced by two large circular skylights, set with transparent glass. These lights are ! particularly useful when rain or wind ! requires the letting down of canvas curtains on one or more sides of the | house. Taut wires, strung vertically either side of each pillar serve to ; hold these curtains in place when Un furled, each edge being set with eya lets through which the wires pass. As has been stated, the floor is of concrete. This is laid over a net work of hollow tile which lies only a short distance below the surface. This holow tile is connected to a h.ot air furnace located in a basement oc cupying a portion of the area beneath the house. The pasage of air through the hollow tile serves to keep the floor warm, and so supplies heat. The home is, in effect, one large veranda. While there are no parti, tiocs, there has been constructed at one side, midway between the ends, a series of booths or recesses, two tiers high, with openings at the front across which hang heavy curtains. These are the dressing rooms for the entire family and here are dressers, mirrors, and other necessary con veninces for making one's toilet. Only one of these compartments has four walls and a door. This is the bath room. Stairs lead to the second tier of dressing rooms, along the front of which runs a picturesque balcony. ;The entire family sleeps on divans or couches, which constitute the princi pal articles of furniture at one end of the home, which end, In the dytime, might be compared to the reception hall or living room. A large high-backed 3ettee at the opposite end of the house is another important piece of furnLhlng. The back of this setteee is dial ed into spacious cupboards, where dishes and small electric stove are to be found. The end of the structure comprising the dressing rooms, next to the sette, is fitted with sinks, and theyptogether with the cuppboards, just «Éerrd to, constitute al there is, of a iJftehen. That the members of this house hold may enjoy the henef$s of an open fire, a crude fireplace has been dug out in the rocky -side of the hill, only a few feet from the end of the wall-less house, and here, amid the s - Making Extraordinary Mileage a Certainty - Car Owners want more rubber on the tread where the wear is hardest; more gum between cord plies to perfect a resilient and powerful carcass. And they want a scientifically constructed Non Skid tread with all angles and contacts to resist skidding and give sure traction. Firestone Cord Tires have met these demands of the car owners. - Read Letters Below— Records from 29,000 to 57,000 Miles Cord Tires built the Firestone way could not fail to produce mileage. Every day, from all over the country, comes the word that 10,000, 20,000 or 30,000 miles are frequent and consistent records.
