GOOD lines, attractive and
appearance, and cozy, well
roomy within are the outstanding features of
this exceptional bungalow fqr the family that
is small. It is' essentially a home for the
South, built first in Cal-
ifornia and wholly lack
ing any . . provision for
heating beyond; the open
grate in the living room,
more for ornament' than
utility. ,M '(--" ! -
This - fact I however,
does not preclude its be
ing built in l colder! cli
mates. Your contractor
can easily make the "nec
essary Changes . in ; its
construction jto provide
basement and heating
plant. The 'extra cost,
beyond the j excavating
and the .heating outfit,
would be QotaparatiYely
trivial. j j
Built low Jwith I the
floors practically upon
the ground 1 e v e 1, the
best landscaping results
would be obtained with
the dwarf varieties of shrubbery. And it
should be provided with a profusion of this.
That was contemplated in its designing, for
in California no home is complete other-

ment, it was! predicted yesterday
by those working on building.
Daring the; past week the wal
nut flooring has been laid in the
main gymnasium. Now the wood
en flooring for the entire building
has been laidi I There yet remains
the rubber tiling floor; for the lob
bies and the finished concrete and
tile floor for the basement.
, Artistic doors hare been placed
to the main entrance of the build
ing. One of the entrances opens
into the men's lobby and one into
the boys lobby. The doors are
paneled and are finished In dark
brown, to harmonize with the gen
eral color scheme of the exterior.
Woodworks! trimming ' of. the

They are made of fir and finished
in dark brown, in keeping with the
finish of all, the woodwork trim

- In the, boys shower room work
ot setting the tile has been com
pleted. It is expected that by the
end of the week the tile will have
been all set in the men's shower
room as well. f
As for the swimming tank it
self, a water test must be given be
fore work, of setting the tile can
even be started.,- .The tank- must
be, filled with water, and- allowed
to stand thus for ten days, to test,'
positively the worth of the tank's
concrete walls and bottom. Then
the actual work of setting the tile
will take weeks, it is thought.
In the gymnasium , a : drinking
fountain has been Installed. Next
to it a sanitary cuspidor, in which
water will be kept, running. Stage
of the men's lobby has been-finished
oft With the contractor's
work on the first; second and third
floors all but completed, it is ex
pected that moving in of the furn
ishings (for the d6rmltory rooms
will start at the first of next week.

j The entire front of the bungalow is taken
up with living and dining rooms, both large
and well lighted, insuring maximum com
fort. From the dining room a hallway leads
to the two bed rooms in the rear, past kit
chen and bath and the
stairway to the storage
attic. The arrangement
is very convenient.
Directly in the rear of
the living room and ex
tending to the rear build
ing line of the house is
the patio. Around the
entire side of the house,
facing the patio, is a cov
ered porch to which one
has egress from living
room, hallway or .the rear
Patios are novelties in
the North where their
possibilities for adding to
home enjoyment and to
general living comfort
are yet to be discovered
and appreciated.
For the summer after
noon and evenings they
offer a retreat of both
privacy and relaxation where one may, at
very slight expense, surround himself with
all the many delights of an outdoor flower
garden. In old Mexico, home of the patio,

Rooms on . Mezzanine , Floor
Beingt Partitioned, Rail
ings Moulded
Plasterers have finished their
work in , the main auditorium of
the new Elsinore theater, under
construction on High street be
tween , State and Ferry street for
George Guthrie, owner of the Ore
gon theater.
Most of the plastering work in
the front of the building has been
done, although thesintrlcate mold
ing necessary is expected to take a
week or two.
Rooms on the front of the mez
zanine floor are being partitioned
and plastered. The men's rest
room will be in this part of the
theater. The plaster railings from
the mezzanine floor to the room to
the rear of the main balcony have
been molded.
Work of decorating the interior
has been started in full swing.
The ceiling and walls of the main
balcony is being finished in veri-
colored tints, giving a massive mo
saic effect. The scratch plaster
coat takes the color scheme in a
highly attractive way.
Panel work of the railings of
the main and mezzanine balconies
Is highly eleborate. The panels
have been decorated to represent
coats of arms and are finished in
various and bright colors. The
entire decorative scheme is in
keeping with the general gothic
design of the theater.
Several units of the great organ
have- been lnstaled in the roomy
organ chamber, which is built just
over, the front top of the stage.
The remainder of the units will
be installed this week. The large
pipe that will convey the air to the
organ has already been installed.
For finishing the walls of the
room just to the rear of the main
balcony buff color has been used.
Decoration of the remainder of the
front will not be started until the
plaster work is completed.

Broadcast Shaw Play as
Theaters Decline "Risque?'
UONDON. A Bernard Shaw
play has ' been broadcast with
great success to the. British listening-in
publicr-not one of his long
talky plays, but a bit of tomfool
ery Shaw wrote for a theatrical
garden party 20 years ago.
"Passion, Poison and Petrifica
tion" is the title of the extrava
ganza. When the heroine. Lady
Magnesia, is asked by her maid,
"Why do you not undress, get in
to bed and end all this hubbub?"
She replies, in distressed tones:
"How can I, Phyllis, with all these
people listening.
It is said! to be the only Shaw
play that has never been prodnced
in America.; ' Not even the Thea
ter Guild will risk its reputation
on it. i
