The cai i palgn has been delayed because of weather conditions. On March 21 the spring season was officially ushered In and now the greatest house building movement ever In aagurated In Detroit Is under way. Builders have been waiting for spring to take the frost out of the ground so that a great number of workmen could be Induced to leave tbelr Indoor occupations and to take np tbelr building trades In the con it ruction of homes. There have twen other reasons, too. such as rail congestion caused essentially by coal traffic. Now. however, all of the condl tlons have been so shaped as to make the long heralded bouse build Ing campaign an actuality The de mand has been Increasing tor months Builders and realtors, prof Iting from last year’s experience, have been preparing to make 1917 the most active year In this respect the etty has ever experienced Many great building companies have been -organised during recent months with capital running Into the atlHfcm* Plans have been laid for the elimination of many of the problems encountefal In last year s acttrftfee when the operators al most simultaneously realised the necessity of an extensive snd ag gresslve building campaign and by all starting toward the same goal flooded the market for materials and swamped the railroads with or ders for delivery snd failed to get the proper supply of labor There has been more continuous building this winter than in the same period In previous years. Au thorities say the housing congestion has reached the maximum and that r*-nt tendencies are toward lower levels, It Is expected that housing faculties will this year he provided for the entire Influx of people which Is estimated at 100.000 for the year. There will also be a greater Ten dency toward single dwellings at moderate prices PIPER PURCHASES NEW PROPERTY FOR SUBDIVISION Walter C.

It will be under the management of Joseph A Nagel, who was formerly manager of the branch office on Jefferson and Ashland. 11. R Miller, manager, says It has been found necessary Ur put In two offices on account of the Increasing business in thla locality both In the Improved and vacant, besides con siderable building. * Hugh Strattman has been promot ed from superintendent to manager of the improved department. Pre vious to Mr. Btrattman’s coming to this exchange, he was employed for over IB year* with the Michigan Mutual Life Insurance company as actuarial accountant RIVES TALK ON REALTY TRANSFERS J. T. Millers Tells Class How to Make Deeds WORDNG CAUSES MUCH TROUBLE Improper Phraseology Often Results In Litigation "flareleemesa and Ignorance of the proper phraseology and manner of execution of jegai instruments by means of which real property Is transferred in whole or in part, per luanently or temporarily, absolutely or conditionally, from one person to another, are by far the most com mon capse of litigation In the fleW cf conveyancing “ This was the opening remark of J. Thompson Miller. Detroit real es tate operator, in an address to mem here of th*> Y. H. C. A. class In read estate Friday night. Bocae excerpts from Mr Miller'* talk follows: ‘The deed probatly u the moat common and important of aM real estate instruments. It Is a written agreement signed, waled and deliv ered, by which one person conveys land to another The first recital lu the deed Is that of the actual date of the execution of the Instrument. The true and actual date of signing should always be used. '■Next comes a description of the parties. The grantor Is always the party of the first part.’ He should be deyrlbed **> his full name; and If be is a married man. his wife must Join with him, and be named sa one o t the parties of the first part so that tfer dower Interest may be divested If the grantor Is a mar ried woman her hustoand need not Join In the execution of the deed when the land to be oooreyad lies ir. this state. Borne states give a husband a dower Interest or an 'estate by cour tesy' in hie wife's lands, but Michi gan abolished that rule. Long ago If the grantor It an unmarried man dt a widower the words, 'unmarried' or widower' should be Inserted In the dee* Immediately after his name. The grants* Is always described as 'the party of the second part* In erder to clearly establish the Idea ttty of the parties. It Is always well to designate their place of swel denc# right after their names " A nofable wedAlng in PhMadel phla today will be that of Mice Frances Watts, daughter of Dthel bert Watts, United fttatee consul general In Belgium, and Theodosius Stevens, of Castle Point.
