I The Cougars were given a ! slight assist in their rout of the Raiders, however, when Blue Oliver, their big 6-6 center, sustained a blood nose later in the second frame and had to leave the battle. It was at this point that Jef- ferson Coach Tim Brinkley felt his Cougars had a great op- portunity to break the game open and he sent a team of his tallest players onto the floor. But this strategy did not work as Loudoun kept pace with the Cougars and were down by only eighjt points at halftime. But in the third period with a change in their defense, the Cougars were able to take away the middle lane from where Oliver had hit for 17 points in the first half and the big center scored just two points in the final half. In the first half the Raiders got a lot of shots from the middle lane and stayed in the ball game.

THAT'S" FINE COVERAGE AND THAT IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU INSERT YOUR years in this column and elsewhere about the trends, changes, RAMEY vogues and happenings which con- stantly take place in the furniture and decorating industries, it is time that we stopped and took a common-sense, objective view of this fluctuating and evolutionary process. Concerning furniture, you will find that good design is practically ageless. This good design, regardless whether it is contemporary or traditional, regardless of period, is what makes furniture long-lasting and keeps it from going "out of style". Many of you may remember the "think pink" craze of years ago when everyone was buying pink furniture for all the rooms in their homes. Previous to that there was the "blond boom" when bleached and blonde f'misbes were the big vogue throughout the country. More recently it has been rood, pop and psychedelic designs which have at* tracted attention. Most of these fads turned out t be passing fancies and people who bought some of them might have discovered that their furniture soon became dated. But if you want furniture that will still be upto-date many years from now, pay .us a visit here. We know that good design is longer lasting and gives you more beauty and more value.
