"Building a Building"
That's to be the slogan throughout !
the country during the coming spring
and summer months And there's a
reason, and a good one!
No building other than that which
was absolutely necessary has been:
dolio during the past year. Govern
ment restrictions, made necessary by
the war emergency, practically stop-
ped--aBthe-eoPtrction .wwk.-Now j
these restrictions have been removed j
and there are many reasons w..y
building, plans should be revived and
carried out as speedily as possible.
The buildings are needed, their con
struction will add to the general
prosperity of the community and, last
but not least, the work will provide
employment for the soldiers who are
now being discharged.
St. Johnsbury should not and un
doubtedly will not be behind other
communities in this particular. Many
residents not only of St. Johnsbury
but of the surrounding countiy were ;
nlnnninir new homes or other build
ings, or improvements on old build
ings when war put an end to these
activities. Now there is no reason
why these plans should not be revived
and, as stated above, there are many
reasons why they should be coined ,
The Caledonian wishes, also, to
print all the news regarding build
ing plans and building operation in
St Johnsbury and vicinity, and asks
its readers to give it information of
their own plans and any others of
which they may have knowledge.
News of this kind is of general in
terest and its publication will benefit
the entire community. Construction
work of a useful character is a boon
to the community. It puts money
into., circulation where it will do the
most good at homo,
labor conditions und
prosperity to every resident of the

The United States government It
self is behind this "Build n Building"
movement. William B. Wilson, sec-j
rctary of labor, issued n statement!
- recently, calling on individuals as wen ,
las state and municipal authorities to
1 begin at once the building projects
i that had been stopped to release la-.
bor and materials lor war purposes,
Secretary Wilson summed up the sit -
uation when he said:
L,acK ol dwelling accommodations i
and lack of public conveniences in!
the way of roads, bridges and public
buildings are a serious detriment at
this time, when we are anxious to t
pass through the readjustment period!
