Bealty Boards Interested in Move Toward Standardization. Eleven states have passed zoning enabling acts modeled either wholly or In part on the standard state zon ing act drafted by an advisory com mittee to the Department of Com merce. on which committee the Na tional Association of Real Estate Boards was represented. This prog ress toward insuring the permanence of zoning results has been made within a year of the issuance of the act in preliminary form, according to a statement of the Department of Commerce accompanying announce ment of the publication of the model measure In its finished form. Similar acts have also been intro duced In four states, with the pros pect of more to follow. Irving B. Hlett, Toledo. Ohio, chairman of the National Association’s zoning commit tee, represented the association on the department's advisory committee. Edward M. Bassett of New York, was chairman of the committee.

Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover comments on the reception which the model enabling act has re ceived, as follows: "The discovery that It Is practical, by city zoning, to carry out reason able neighborly agreements as to the use of land has made an almost In stant appeal to the American people. Recent court decisions, both adverse and favorable to zoning, serve to em phasize the need of the most careful attention to the state laws which per mit cities and other municipalities to adopt zoning ordinances. Such acta must not only stand the test of con stitutionality in tnelr own state courts, but are sometimes carried to the Supreme Court of the United States.
