The Bungalow Is the Newest of Modern Homes For El

Paso in Recent Years The El Paso Bungalow
Is Typical of the Town and Its Progress.
THE BUNGALOW, that cozy, hotae-Iooking, home feeling abode, the
idea of which cones from the golden west, but which is advancing to
an acme of perfection that outbungalows anything ever builded in Cali
fornia, L solving the problem of a "home with character" without the outlay
of a. fabulous sum of money. Especially is this so in El Paso. A drive over

Beautifying El Paso.
A few years ago El Paso, like all
other cities, was one of mediocre or
common structures that Is builded of
brick and stone and lumber after the
less fanciful ideas of past day artists.
Its best homes were of the plainer
notions. Its cottages were just cot
tages those little, unpretentious mod
els that had been in vogue for gener
ations Today it is different. Alert
builders began to study the advancing
tastes and moving ideals of neonle anri
a higher appreciation of home-bfcildlng
Realizing the bungalow idea to be
one embodying varied tastes and yet a
structure that maintained always Its
characteristics, live builders of EI Paso
homes introduced It here. Among the
first to see the possibilities of the
bungalow, jjot only in the civic beauti
fying of EI Paso but the pleasing of
patrons. Perry & KirkpatricJT began ta

listeners. While El Paso was a solidly

same ume elevate the ideals of its

and were the first company to do it.
And today the city of El Paso is a
testimonial to what a live firm can do
in advancing higher ideals and engen
dering a pride In homes.

Equipped To Build.
The Perry-Kirkpatrick Company In
sists that homes built by them shall
every one be a "quality home." And
recognizing the fact that to compete
with builders who are not so particu
lar about the quality side of the homes
they construct it is necessary to be in
a position to build on a wholesale basis.
This company not only InjUds on a
large scale but can db it at the right
cost. With their own force of archi
tects they need not pay too extrava
gantly for this important work. Hav
ing their own woodworking mills, .they
are enabled to turn all interior and
cabinet work, finished by the most
modern machinery, saving labor and
material and thua giving a customer
an advantage that he cannot possibly
This firm carries a S0,000 stock of
lumber, sash doors, roofing, builders'
hardware, paints and other building
materials. This big yard Is located at
1502 Magoffin avenue.- The lumber
yard is styled the American lmber
and Investment Company, and the firm
is now putting up a spacious new home
for their building stock just across the
street from the present location. This
building will cost $10,000.
This rapidly growing thoroughfare Is
indeed the "Home Street," its owners
say. It is restricted entirely to homes
and these homes are being put up un
der restrictions that make them uni
formly pretty and attractive. Under
the regulation adopted by- the Perry
Kirkpatrick Company no lot is sold un
less the buyer agrees to build at once;
no home is to be erected on a lot less
than seventy-five feet frontage and
none to cost less than $3500. All the
structures mus't be on a twenty-five
foot building line from the sidewalk,
thus leaving the space in front to be
beautified and producing an artistic
effect Already fourteen new homes
have gone up" on this street making it
one of the most attractive new Lome
streets in El Paso. It will soon become
truly "Bungalow Avenue."
The Perry-Kirkpatrick Company has
recently become the owners of Jackson

Mr. Perry, a member of the firm, said
that this purchase seems "a little far
sighted to some," but the sure growth
to the northeastern part of the city
makes it appear to him a safe proposi
tion. He bases his optimism upon the
experience of other cities where ' the
trend of residence growth is always

It. is a pardonable pride in the Perry-
.Kirkpatrick Company to say they are
"building El Paso." They lay, boast to
the fact that they have put up. MS
hoases here since they began business.
Not only do they claim to be building St
Paso but they say and with just gromiH
for it that they are raising the stand
ard ideals in its building. It is not dis
puted - that the class of homes they
have been putting up are an honor'to
El Paso's residential sections. They
have infused live interest and new life
in the sections they have taken up- ana
undertaken to populate and there wiH
be few if any wno will quarrel wjth
them because they feel like they are
"building El Paso."
If Yon Want to Ride.
Not only is the Perry-Kirkpatriek
Company equipped for building .homes
of the highest class, but they are pre
pared to sell you a car to ride out to
them. They own the Tri-State Motor

pretty bungalows nice all over but they,
make smooth driveways up to them so,
they can sell you a notor car to drive

German Dental Students
Strike For Higher Titles
.Berlin, Gernaany, Jan. 'S. German
dental students in more than a'doaen
schools are on strike for higher titles.
They demand to be known after grad
uation as Doctors of Dental Surgery
and not be restricted to the inferior
classification of "tooth-physidanm"
which now prevails in Germany. .The
strike includes the dental departments
of the universities of Berlin. Leipria
Halle. Bonn, Herdelberg. Marburg and
Grlefswald. where the stud.ent refuse
to continue their studies unless they
are given the coveted title.
The high-grade and highly remuner
ative dental "practice in Germany is
largely monopolized by American den
tists, and the native "tooth-physicians"
struggle under the handicap of this
title for what is left The ministry of
education, which has behind it the
world of regular physicians, refuses to
introduce thv doctor UHe, which would

said Mr. Dofunny used to spend all his
evenings downtown, and now he never
leaves the house after supper, and
when visitors come in it's no trouble
to entertain them. I've often thought
that our own home life would be tar

that costs good money is desirable,"
grumbled Jamesworthy. "I don't deny
