ANSWERS. WHICH WILL SOLV1U
PERPLEXING PROULEMS 410
THIS RECONSTRUCTION ERA.
Query.-The government has launched
an educational campaign to encou/ad
building in order to put more men ta
work. Would not a similar movement te
show how the old 'structures can be beet
and most economically repaired and m'ade
good as new also help?
Answer.-It Is learned that such a
plan is in effect and :s linked directly
with the Washington propaganda.
Industry' mtust be turned back riet

ditlons were already restored, and one
step towards restoring them will co'ne
with resumption of repair work.
Government restrictions, imposed by
the necessities of the war program,

irlions are now ofY, and there is
scarcely a town, a city, a factory, a
dwelling or a farmn that doaes n-tt reveal
a crying need for prompt attention.
Nothing delays such instant action ex
cept the feeling that prices are high
for the time helng and may be lower.
That is not logical. No matter what
it costs to repair, the ero is less than
the cost of neglect. No ma tter wi t
the cost of paint, the wind and the
weather will collect a higher bill to
deterioration and decay.
Query.-What do you think of paint as
an Investment, aside from the appearance
it lends? Does It really PAY to paint a
house regularly, say, every three or four
Answer.-Good paint properly ap
plied when needed is the main thing in
making a house last long and well. A
house worth 42,500 can be painted at a
cost of about $123. In 60 years that
house will need about 15 paintings,
the total cost of which will be $1,895.
Left without paint, such a house woild
fall into complete ruin in 30 years. So
taking 60 years as a basis for our fg
ures we find that with paint a home
will inst that time in good condition
and will cost, plus paint, $4,3f5. With
out paint the house would have to be
rebuilt at the end of 80 years and
would be ready for another complete
renovation when the sixtieth year ar
rived. Cost, without paint, $5,000 for
i home ready to fall to pieces. Does
regular painting pay? As the old
Dutch adage says:
"PAINT PAYS FOR ITSELF."
Query.-I have a quantity of old paint
on hand. Can I use it for the first coat in
repainting my barn?
Answer.-On no account should old
paint which has become fat be used
for priming either old or new work.
Old paint in that condition is best used
on a fence, brickwork or tinwork. If
you value your barn attliciently to
paint it, do it the Justice of a good Job.
