HE home owner can thank the dc
-*• pression for many improvements in
average priced floorcoverings. A few
years ago the person who had only a
moderate sum u> spend on floorcoverings
was penalized by having to buy poorly
styled rugs. However, during the depres

people of good taste might have to
economize just as much as people satis
fied with less subtly designed merchan

was brought into the popular priced
fabrics. Today you can buy smart look
ing rugs and carpets of good, wearable
construction, at practically any price you
wish to pay.
