Four Million Need Better Homes.
The housing shortage, according to
John Ihidcr, manager of the national
chamber's civic development depart
ment, has reached a point where 4.
000,000 persons arc inadequately
"For a number of years prior to the
world war," Mr. Ihidcr said today, "it
is conscrvately estimated between
n."i0,000 and 400,000, family dwellings
were erected each year. This includes
houses and apartments.
In 1!)I!) it is estimated, there were
only about 70,000 houses built in the
United States, while the number
erected in H)20 probably will turn out
to have been even smaller than that
Many Houss for Sale.
"While it is true there are many
houses for sale, these are nearly all
now occupied by tenants. The number
of houses for rent in most communi
ties is practically nil, and the majority
of these houses arc not suitable for
the needs of the average wage earner.
A man with an income of $.",000 a
year or more does not have as much
trouble getting desirable quarters as
the wage earner who cannot afford to
pay high rents. Those earning small
salaries arc the ones hardest hit by
the housing shortage. It is for these
that decent home must be built."

that form was? not the base of life.
The cells, he declined, are heterogene

places where memorials are to be
erected have been received.
Of these, 71i lme not yet decided
what form the memorial Is to take.
To this total must be added the
amount to be spent in towns that lme
not yet decided n the form of mem
orial, and the cost of the shrines and
monuments which" have been erected
In almost every church nnd chapel
throughout the land. It is a fair es
timate that at least SI. -.000.000 N be

COMMUNAL SPIRIT IN JAPAN

Japanese do things In public for
which we would ostracize a man or

communal spirit which tolerates bath

other extreme of coming out on their

their mouths when talking or yawning,
as do we. hut will cough and sneeze

among the refined, observance of cus

come to celebrate Hip arrival of the
cherry blossoms by bringing with them
their gelslm nnd their children: they
move In perfect hordes ; they go to the
station hi masses to see off some
friend or relative and crowd the plat
forms, bowing and bowing and bowing
again as though there weren't a thou

they dress; undress, ent. sleep and
drink whisky by the tumblerful on the
