HAPPY HOME LIFE, YEAR 2000 — It is the year 2000. Mr. and Mrs. John Smith, Sr., prospering citizens of a prosperous America, have decided on a suitable wedding present for John, Jr.... They are going to let the boy have his old room in the Smith home, for keeps…. The room is detachable and readily transportable, as are all the rooms in this “home of tomorrow.”... Interlocking room units that can be buckled onto a house as the family expands, then unbuckled and presented to the occupants when they grow up and leave home, may be in common use some 40 years from now.
