Bates Home Fashions Oirector
New Fall Fashions
Way buck in June I visited the
‘‘market," the aemi-annual trade
show where buyers from all over
the country go to select the home
furnishings that you are begin-
ning to see in your hometown
stores, right now.
At the time I was particularly
impressed by all the marvelous
new prints that you may have al-
ready noticed. The freshest ones
are sometimes called ‘‘gutsy geo-
metries” or mini-patterns and
both are good names. These small
patterns are, I think, a reflection
of the great interest most of us
have in modern art. Graphics of
all kinds seem so reasonably
priced and are such a smart way
of brightening up almost any
room in the home.
The new carpets and bed-
spreads and tablefashions fit
right in with this graphic look.
And the biggest newsmakers are
the rooms that use more than one
pattern. If you wish to use more
than one pattern in a room, you
must do it very carefully. All the
patterns should be of the same
scale and they should have one
or two colors in common.
These new small abstract
prints seem to go best with con-
temporary, rather than tradi-
tional furnishings and they fea-
ture very bold, very bright colors.
Some of the prettiest carpets are
in red, white and blue combina-
tions, while bright orange and
yellow also look fresh.
Lots of the fashion-minded
buyers were particularly taken
with a new bedspread by Bates,

Last year 4,500 doe p?rmits

actly the way it sounds. Surely,
the Fiesta Red coloring in hot
pink, scarlet and plum will be an
eye-onener in the bedroom! Then
theres a spread called Spring
Song that has just the opposite
effect. The soft strokes of bright
pastel in this translation of an
Indonesian batik design seem to
promise a very restful sleep and
very sweet dreams.
For do-it-yourself designers,
there’s a bonus here, too: the
colors in these prints are all co-
ordinated with Bates’ famous
Piping Rock cottons, so you can
mix and match bedspreads, table-
fashions, cafe curtains and dra-
peries. For the liveliest young
look, put a pattern on theJbad with
a go-together solid at the window.
What a nice solution for us

AUSTIN, TEXAS—The accele-
rating arms race to create more
deadly weapons has foiled to ap-
proximate the effectiveness of
one of mankind’s simpliest
inventions. From Jove’s
thunderbolts to the awesome de-
struction of atomic bombs, no
creation has affected as many
people as the primitive little
pointed piece of wood called the
In spite of global dissent, shaky
cease-fires, shooting wars, and
radical dissentions, chubby little
Cupid still wields the most potent
weapon, the arrow. Last year
in the United States 2,158,000
couples marched to the altar,
or reasonable facsimile, and
pledged undying fidelity to each
other. An insurance company
survey indicates that by 1975
the annual marriage rate in
the U. S. will be 2.5 million.
Translated into the effect these
marital mergers will have on the
nation’s economy makes for in-
teresting speculation. With all
these new family groupsbeing
formed, the demand for goods and
material will continue to grow.
The U. S. Bureau of the Cen-
sus has projected a housing de-
mand at the rate of 1.2 mil-
lion per year over the next five
In addition to this predicted
construction, an additional 800,
000-900,000 units must be built
to replace existinghousing and to
maintain a normal vacany rate.
This adds up to a total housing
need to two million units per
year until 1975.
"The old law of supply and
demand is going to be felt in
the housing market in the very
near future,’’ according to Joe
Butler, executive vice president
of the Lumbermen’s Association
of Texas. "Lumber prices have
been down for some time, but as
building starts increasing, the
price of homes is going to rise.’’
Butler added that labor and land
costs have accounted for most of
the recent increase in con-
struction costs, but heavier de-
mands for materials undoubtedly
will add to the overall price of
a home. "Wise buyers should
anticipate the coming boom in
home building and ’.ook for that
new home now,” he advises.
