A Trees Are playing an Ever More important role As Muters of noise. A a hush belts of Trees Are recommended by government experts around airports. Everywhere in City town and Countryside Trees Are being planted to reduce traffic Din says Robert a. Bartlett president of the f. A. Bartlett tree expert company. For years hospitals schools and churches have found that Trees hush traffic decibels. Residents along Busy streets have Cut Down the noise of passing autos and trucks by Trees strategically placed around their houses. Traffic experts have found that Trees planted along thruway and parkways play a safety role. That is Why new highways that lace the nation As ribbons Are being landscaped with belts of Trees. The Trees serve three purposes i Beauty. 2 to mute the constant traffic Roar that adjacent communities hear and 3 to Cut Down on Highway accidents. This latter purpose is just now being realized. Noise of autos and trucks passing each other at High speeds causes rising tension in the Drivers or motorists. Increased tension in turn contributes to accidents. Noise reducing Trees thus become a safety Factor. Similarly it has been found that belts of Trees around airports reduce the whine and Roar of jets in nearby communities and contribute to better living. Tests Are being made to determine whether properly placed Trees along highways will disperse fog that lies in Low pockets. Preliminary studies show that Needles of Pines and firs do break up fog particles to a certain degree far after than do the leaves of deciduous Trees. Hie time May come when belts of Pines May be planned on the a foggy Bottoms of highways to make travel safes. Physical handicaps. I appreciated your column the other Day.

I myself am one of those people who likes to sleep in the mornings especially on weekends because generally i do not have time for those extra winks during the week. I am not an adv Cator of heavily curtained and snagged windows but needless to say i do like that sleep on weekends. So i have made certain that draperies in our bedroom have Milium blackout under curtains which prevent Light from filtering through our yellow and White Cotton curtains. I think it is a Good idea to install two rods at the bedroom windows. One one Rod the Milium fabric is Hung and on the front traverse Rod our Cotton draperies Are Nung. This Way the bedroom can have darkness but also can have Light and privacy. If you desire privacy and Light during the Day do not close the Milium drapery draw Only the front curtains. The daytime Light which filters through our yellow and White curtains makes the room delightful and warm. Recently i saw a handsome bedroom where Milium blackout curtains were used at the windows.
