BUILDERS TO HEAR
GEN. LYTLE BROWN
Associated General Contrac
tors’ Board to Meet Here
April 28, 29, 30.
Reflecting the recent official and gen
eral recognition of the construction in
dustry as the key to American business
stabilization, Maj. Oen. Lytle Brown,
chief-of the United States Army Corps
of Engineers, will be one of the princi
pal speakers at the Spring executive
board meeting of the Associated Gen
eral Contractors of America, to be held
here April 28. 29 and 30.
E. J. Harding, assistant general man
ager of the association, has announced
that several matters of major impor
tance to the industry will be taken up
for consideration at the board meeting.
One of the principal subjects for dis
cussion will be the many legislative
proposals being advanced for the utili
aatlon of prison labor in construction.
Proposals to join forces with other
organizations affected by “adverse leg
islation” will be considered by the board,
which is comprised of 40 general con
tractors, headed by President A. E.
Horst of Rock Island, 111. Plans for
launching of State-wide credit pro
grams applicable to the highway field
have been receiving serious considera
tion by the association and also will be
taken up for action.
The matter of preferential discounts
to public bodies in the purchase of ma
terials for day-labor work will be dis
cussed, but Mr. Harding reports that
“the united front that has been created
between his association and organized
material dealers indicates that the ad
vantage heretofore held by govern
mental agencies may not be so difficult
to correct as was formerly believed.”
The trend of the volume and cost of
construction also will come under dis
cussion, and in this connection Mr.
Harding believes that the timidity
characterizing operations earlier in the
year has been completely overcome and
that a revival already is setting in.
