BRICK PLANTS PILE
! AWAYHUGE STOCK
600,000,000 to Be Ready for
Spring Navigation Along
Not since the war have the brink
men gone into the closing months of
the year with such determination to
pile up stock as is manifested in cur
rent reports of 132 manufacturers do
ing business in forty-three states, ac
cording to a statement of the Common
Brick Manufacturers’ Association of
America. The situation on the Hudson
river, which provides the brick supply
for Greater New York operations, is in
dicative of what' is going on in all
the large brick-producing centers. By
the tlmk Hudson river navigation
opens next spring it is anticipated
that the plants along the river will
have 600.000,000 brick ready for ship
ment to their markets. This is 50
per cent greater than the winter stock
in any recent year.
‘•Plants are running at full time and
will continue until freezing weather
stops operations,” the statement says.
“Those plants equipped for winter
running will continue throughout the
interim before the coming season.
These preparations are going on with
the New York manufacturers, in spite
of the fact that quantities of foreign
brick still lie on barges 'at the docks
and many more millions of brick are
on their way from Holland and Ger
I‘There apparently is not much left
of the buyers’ strike and operations
are at the usual volume in nearly all
parts of the country. The orders on
the books, according to current re
ports. have increased during the past
thirty days, while the stocks of
burned brick are just about holding
their own. Prices remain stable,
ranging from sll to $22. according
to the amoufit of transportation
necessary to put the brick on the job.
The large production figures and the
state of the orders on the books are
encouraging in view of the fact that
many yards are closing for the winter
due to weather conditions.
Interest in I.umber Move.
“The brick men observe with some
Interest the published statement that
American lumbermen are preparing
to ship 3,000.000,000 feet to Japan.
Since the order from Japan equals
about 40 per cent of the total con
sumption of lumber in this country
in an average year, and the source
of lumber Is rapidly diminishing, it
is apparent that many operations
which normally, go in lumber will
seek other materials. This condi
tion, it is beli'Wd, will give new im
petus to the already growing demand
for brick. The brick manufacturer
generally has never looked to resi
dence construction for a market.
Co-operative advertising effort, how
ever, in the past few years has been
directed largely to the home builder
and the results attained have caused
the manufacturers to think more
seriously of this market.
"In a normal year the United States
should build 600,000 homes, if 25
per cent of these should have exterior
walls of brick it would use 6.000,-
000,000 brick, which Is two-thirds of
the greater production in any year.
All permanent materials combined
have been getting only about 11 per
cent of residence buildings. Amer
icans use lumber in home ctiilding
because they think it is cheaper.
With its rising costs the difference
between even the cheapest form of
construction and fire-resistive con
struction has now been practically
wiped out. As this fact becomes
better known more and more will
permanent materials be used, and
brick, above all others, is the most
accessible and economical for resi
“There is a marked labor shortage
in some parts of the country and
this is a problem Which disturbs
.manufacturers. A change in Immi
gration laws seems to be the only
means of relief.
“The cost of producing brick has
not been loyvered during the year
and there Is nothing to indicate that
it can be made at a lower cost next
WITH MANAGER GROUP
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, November 3.—A dead
lock exists over renewal of the con
tract expiring June 1, 1924, between
tho Producing Managers’ Association
and the Actors' Equity Association,
by the refusal of a steering commit
tee of the managers to accept the
Equity terms. Augustus Thomas an
nounced the proposal was rejected
unanimously after a stormy two
hour session yesterday. A further
attempt to meet the situation will be
made at a meeting of the managers
early next week.
Gee Shubert, who conferred with
Equity heads, reported, the actors’
terms" to the managers. The terms
amounted practically to forcing a
"closed shop’’ on the managers, said

! Resolutions calling for a $2,000
bond for every real estate broker
as a safeguard against irresponsible

for better public protection.
Urging the need of a modern tax
system for Ohio, the Ohio Association
of Real Estate Boards, at its conven
tion. issued a call for defeat of tax
measures coming up next month on
a referendum vote in the interest of
simple justice to the home owners
and real property owners of the state.
The Ohio realtors declared strongly
for the adoption by Ohio of the ”in

; levies and for the abolition of tax-
