Cheaper and more durable homes

'etrueted along the linos of a report
made public today by the building
rode committee of the Department !
Os Commerce, which Secretary Hoover
declared would result “not only in a
Very appreciable money saving to mil
lions of American families." but will
have a positive influence toward bet
ter housing that cannot he counted in j
, j In a letter to Ira 11. Woolson, chair- j
r tnan of the committee. Secretary j
Hoover rays the now building code j
V ill be • helpful not only through 1
practical use /by municipalities in !
building codes and in promoting j
greater uniformity in codes through
out the country, but that with its]
nppendix it will prove directly useful I
lo owners and builders of dwellings
generally. The committee making ]
the report includes representatives of ]
the principal architectural, engineer- !
Ing and other professional societies. ]
The committee recommends that
building codes permit eight-inch solid
brick and six-inch solid concrete
walls for two-and-a-half and three- j
story dwellings accommodating not j
more than two families each. Only i
about 40 per rent of the present city j
building codes- investigated permit
t eight-inch walls in such dwellings, j
Eight-inch walls of hollow tile, hoi- j
low concrete block or hollow w;alls of .
brick are permissible, hut may not j
exceed twenty feet in height, with an i
additional live feet to the peak of the
gable. Frame construction would be
limited to two arid a half stories.!

Metal lath and plaster on wood

for party and division walls., but at ;

or concrete or twelve-inch hollow ,
Requirements for qualify of hollow-j
.masonry units agree fairly well with
practice, but those for brick :
are somewhat below the medium
grade established -by the American
Society for Testing Materials. The j
report recommends revised working :
stresses for limber used in dwellings. I
based on investigations of the Fnited ■
Slates forest products laboratory. '
For other materials experimental j
work of the bureau of standards was I
freely drawn on.
lave toads to be required as basis j
for design are forty pounds per •

thirty pounds for monolithic floors or
those of solid or ribbed slabs.
* Foundation walls of brick are re
quired to be twelve inches thick for
excavated inclosures, and similar con
crete walls shall be as thick as the
walls they support, but tint less than ■
eight inches. Special hollow building i

i for foundation walls of frame build- l

to break its way through. The crowd
arrested till'd nine patrol wagons.
Th«y were taken to the second pre
cinct station house. In the melee
that followed the entrance of the po
lice. razors flashed and pistols cracked, j
Both officers and men in the house i
'were* tiring, but none of the shots j
•ook effect. The furniture of the :
house was wrecked, and a large qiian- I
tity of whisky was poured out on j
the floors to prevent the officers from )
securing evidence of violation of the !
national prohibition law.
Mary Collins, proprietress of the |
house, was charged with operating a |
disorderly house and permitting gani-s
ing on her premises. When arraigned [
in the United States branch of Police j
Court today before Judge John P. Me-J
Mahon, she waived a preliminary!
hearing and demanded a trial by Jury.
The case went over without date.
Among those arrested and being
held, the police say. there are several
fugitives from justice. Others will
be chargd with disorderly conduct,
assaults, carrying concealed weapons
and other offenses.
After the police had mastered the
situation and made a clean-up of the
premises a large number of of mod
ern automatic high-power pistols
were gathered up that had been dis
carded by the colored men in the
