CHEER BUILDERS
Gradual Decrease in Space
Creates Optimism in
Industry.
"With surplus renting space reduced
to manageable proportions, and with
the tangles Incident to the building
lollies of the late 20s fairly well
cleared up. builders In general feel
optimistic about the outlook for 1936,”
says John C. Hegeman, president of
Hegeman-Harris, Inc., large building
firm.
‘ Over and beyond these favoring
factors, builders realize that private
building outside of Government
projects has been almost stagnant
for five or six years, something un
precedented i na country accustomed
to investing five to seven billion dol
lars annually in new structures.
"At last we really seem to be at
the turning of the road,” Hegeman
said. "Stiffening rents for all kinds
of buildings indicate that there is
no longer an unmanageable amount
of surplus renting space and there
is plenty of evidence to show that
most of the headaches incident to
troublesome 'situations’ are well on
the way to being cured.”
Declares Conditons Sound.
These conditions. Mr. Hegeman be
lieves, will tend to release a vast
amount of enery and talent which,
as he points out, has always here
tofore found its natural outlet in
real estate and building construction
activities.
A further aid to building revival
according to Hegeman. is the fact
that deflation of wage scales and
costs of material entering into build
ing has been accomplished. In fact,
as he indicates, the price trend is
now upward and. In the case of
structural steel, cement and several
other items, definitely higher price
levels have already been established.
“This stiffening should not be con
fused with the artificial bulge in
price levels which attended the In
auguration of N. R. A.; today’s mark
ups are the result of actual demand
plus a shrewd appraisal of the future
by hard-headed men working from a
long-range outlook."
A raw nr»o rrtnt^mnlntincr a npw
building project in the near future
is warned by Hegeman against figuring
that he can buy building labor at
lower levels than the prevailing fig
ures of today.
"About the safest prediction that
any one can make as to the immedi
ate future of the building industry is
that the cost of building labor will
not be any less than it is now." he
said.
A still further condition fore
shadowing an early revival of the in
dustry is the accumulated total of
building depreciation and obsoles
cence which, as Mr. Hegeman notes,
“continues in good times or bad, ex
cept that in bad times we ‘make do.'
We are now confronted with the five
or six years' total in these items.
“As soon as our people find them
selves possessed of increased income
they promptly move toward better
living conditions. This has been true
of other depressions; it is true today.
This is now being reflected in an in
cre\ed demand for new housing, at
the rtsoment there being no surplus at
all of small family houses and very
little in the apartment house field.
In the field of large structures, such
as office buildings institutional struc
tures and others involving consider
able outlays, a division of the industry
which has always been last to feel
the force of revival, it can definitely
be stated that the tone of inquiry 1s
now better than it has been at any
time in the last five or six years.

CHAPTER XXI.
THEY came into Penobscot Bay.
moving when the weather
served, anchoring at night in
wooded coves and sheltered
harbdta. venturing ashore now and
' then to make small purchases or mere
ly to feel the good earth underfoot.
The day drifted by; and at first the
sun shone steadily. But by and by the
weather turned.
Bob had anchored one night in a
deep indented cove on the main shore
opposite Isleboro, where a trickling
brook made down to the sea, and
spruce-clad headlands were protect
ing arms to the North and South. A
bell buoy clanged In melancholy lone
liness off the point to the south of
them, but while they slept its voice
became subdued, till at last it was
completely still, and when they woke,
gray fog lay all about them on the
lead-colored water.
They chose that day to go ashore.
They landed just below where a
ruined cellar hole marked the spot on
which a farm house once had stood;
and they walked up through the
drenching meadow grass to the high
road. They turned to the right and
came to Saturday Cove and made
conversation with the storekeeper
there. The fog held, swirling lazily
about them as they returned to their
anchorage again; small drops of mois
ture condensed on their garments,
their hair, their faces. All that day
fog held them fast. Toward dusk they
heard the Boston boat go past out
side their heaven, her whistle blowing
in monotonously reiterated warning
It was raw and cold. The small kero
sene stove In the cabin, good enough
for cooking, yet had little value as i
heating unit; and matches were toe
damp to strike, and fabrics were
heavy with moisture, and everything
was soggy as a filled sponge. Until to
I day they had always managed some
j giyety, some good cheer; but this
dead stifling fog oppressed them both
unspeakably.
"I’ll tell you,” Bob proposed at last
; "Let’s go ashore, build a good big bon
fire, cook our supper there, sleep
there. This—moldy dump depresses
me!”
And Kay readily agreed; so they
rolled blankets and loaded cooking
dishes and some foodstuffs into a
pack and piled their gear in the ten
der and landed on the shingle beach,
Bob had presently a great fire roaring.
As darkness surrounded them. Kay
could see the fog sweeping toward
them from every side, to be sucked
upward in the ascending air current
above the fire in the eddying tower ol
smoke and mist. The air, save for
this one hot upward draft, was utterly
still; only now and then at long in
tervals when the wake of some distant
passing craft disturbed the water, the
bell buoy a mile away clanked dole
fully in minuendo for a while.
Bob tended the fire and they
cooked supper together, shielding their
faces against the heat of the flames:
and when they had finished eating
Kay washed the dishes while he made
their beds with hemlock boughs from
the wood above them. When his task
was done, he joined her by the fire;

hospital now," he said. "I operated
on her last week for cancer of the
stomach, I found it necessary to make
a complete resection.. There aren’t
many cases like that, you know. She's
still alive; or she was when I left.
Usually they die." And he said slowly:
"I think she’s going to live!”
“Why?" Kay asked. "Why do you
think so?”
“I don’t know," he confessed.
"Sometimes you—know." And he
chuckled, and cited a case or two in
which he had been able to predict the
outcome, without tangible evidence to
support his certainty.
"I should think that would come
with experience,” Kay suggested.
"There must be some sign and symp
toms that you recognise without real
ising it. A sort of developed in
stinct.”
“I suppose so," he agreed. *‘I know
father, or Dr. Fabre, can tell more
about a patient with one glance than
I can after a long examination.”
Their tongues at last were still, and
the fog stroked their cheeks. “Ill

ftly -
His eyes were black with ange\
and tried to rub the pitch OH hii
hands.

i thoughtfully. “I feel like a snarlinj

“It makes me—quiet. I think,” Ka;
suggested. "I always imagine som<

Bob nodded. “Some one will writ)

folk, for Instance, are as different a:
possible from Southerners, or West

and fog in Summer. No wonder they’ri

“They have to be.” she assented.
“That's an aspect of medicine tha
hasn’t been sufficiently considered,’
Bob remarked. “National or regiona

bles. There's literature enough or
thyroid in districts far from the sea
and such things. But I mean—wha
does living in cold climates do to thi
body and the soul. Or hot climates

Kay smiled faintly. “Doctors pre

times?” she suggested. “Why not i

He nodded, “You know, after an op'

And he spoke of his work in mam
places, talking half to himself; anc
Kay listened, watching him. watchln*
his brooding eyes as he stared inti
the fire.
“You love it, don’t you.” she said
when at last he paused.

the sounds of slumber rose.
She thought to light the fire and
• prepare breakfast before he should

i ‘Til do that," he said, almost sul
lenly. and rose to fetch fresh wood.

“Be a job to find the Lark this

i no reply; and he lighted a cigarette
and flicked the match into the fire
and looked up at her.
"Kay,” he said huskily, almost
pleadingly. "Let’s go home!”
She waited a moment before she

Nature’s Children
Electric Catfish
Malapterurus Electricus.
BY LILLIAN COX ATHEY.
HAVE you ever had a trip in a
glass-bottomed boat? It's a
great experience, I assure you.
At this time you can see the
many inhabitants of the sandy bot
toms plying their trade. Here you
may witness many battles, races and
fine hunting tactics.
While it is not possible for you to
have the pleasure of watching at first
hand the "gangster" pictured here,
you can get a much better idea of his
performance if you will try to imagine
you are witnessing his underhanded
tricks.
His place of residence is in the Nile.
That in itself spells romance of the
dim past. And this catfish carries
about with him a well charged bat
tery. In fact it is formed of cells all
over his body, being especially pow
erful on the underside, and each cell
Is filled with a firm. Jelly-like substance.
It is never the intention of this
“thug” of the fish world to incapacitate
his victims entirely. He is too wise
for that. What he really does is to
lie in ambush for his victims. They
are a self-respecting lot who go about
hunting for their food In a regular
way. Just about the time they have
caught a fine dinner, the underhand
worker darts forward and gives the
hunter an electric shock that renders
him unconscious! The racketeers re
tires to a safe place to enjoy his food
and rest, whUe he recharges his bat
tery!
It seems that the battery is devel
oped from a muscular substance. It
forms honeycomb or "hexagonal
prisms" whose action is voluntary. A
good sized battery can administer a
shock that can be- felt through a
metal conductor. The feeling is un
canny, though not dangerous.
As far as is known, the shocker
from the Nile has the same family
traditions as his more humble brother
we are so familiar with in our creeks
and streams, the catfish father we
see leading forth his vast army of
black babies In the early days of
Spring. From all appearances, this
catfish would have his little “sparks”
garbed in more decorative uniforms.
The family is such a large one, you
can easily see why some of the cousins
have branched out and done the
unusual.
Do not confuse the powerful elec
tric eel, a resident of Brazil and really
not an eel at all, but related to the
carps, with the electric catfish. It is
more dangerous and Its shock has been
known to knock a man out, for it
generates nearly 400 volts. Both
fishes are often reported, their ability
along electrical lines always being of
great interest.

bought It might help us work things
tut somehow.” His tone was miser
able. “I owe you a lot, owe you any
hlng you want. For what I’ve done
o you- And I’ve tried, honestly.
3ut now—I want to go home. Want
o—see people."
Her tones were gentle. “Priscilla?"
“I suppose Priscilla’s a habit now!"
le admitted: and he said regretfully:
‘I’d give a good deal to—fall In love
slth you, Kay, I’ve tried, really. But
nt can’t make it stick. You must see
that?" She did not speak and he
laughed In an almost embarrassed
Fashion. “Why, Kay." he said. “If
you'd told me I could come away
tlone like this with a girl—any girl—
and never even make a pass at her,
t’d have sworn you were crying! If
there was the faintest chance of our
ever clicking, these days Just couldn’t
have happened without at least s—
touch of lavender! You’ll have to
admit that.”
She finished scouring the frying
pan. “There, that'a clean, on the
Inside, at least," aha said, In a satis
fied tone.
“Of course, if you want to stay on
for the full term. I’ll do It,” he offered.
"But I’m sick of this fog.”
She smiled faintly. "We’ve been a
week.” she told him. “I expect that’s
as—decisive as two weeks. We’ll go
back whenever you say. Bob."
“Good kid! You’ve been mighty
decent! A lot of girls, if they got
hooks Into me, would try to hang
on-”
Kay said cheerfully: “Oh, I’m going
to hang on. Bob. For a while longer!"
He stared at her. “Why, you told
me-”
“I’ve changed my mind,” she ex
plained. She smiled at his conster
nation. but her lips were pale. “Don't
look so despairing, Bob,” she pleaded.
“I don't mean that I’m going to make
you stay married to me forever. But
—just for a few months. I won’t be a
trouble, no trouble at all; and next
Spring we can make some arrange
ment. I promise you.”
He frowned, almost angrily. “Next
Spring?” he echoed.
“Yes.”

don't know,” he said ominously. "If
you're going to be unreasonable! I
don't want to hurt you, but-”
"But what?” she challenged.
"Why—your consent isn't neces
sary,” he told her, defiantly. "After
all, I can take steps If I choose.”
"You won’t find It so simple, now.”
“What do you mean?"
"After this week we've spent to
gether.”
He stared at her incredulously.
"What difference does that make?”
"Isn't it harder to get a divorce than
an annuilment?” she asked. “Of
course our wedding night wasn't very
—convincing. But will any one, espe
cially a Judge, think that we could
spend this week together-”
"You-" he whispered. His eyes
were black with anger. "Was that
what you wanted?” he demanded.
"Was that why you wanted to come?”
Kay said: “Yes. Partly."
He ignored, for the moment, the
modifying word. "You're smart, after
all,” he confessed, half admiringly.
"You soft-shelled little thing. I didn't
give you credit! Now, I suppose you
figure you've got me hooked?”
"Haven't I?" Kay challenged pleas
antly.
He laughed unhappily. “You know,”
he said, “I'd begun to like you, Kay.
You were so darned square and de
cent. I wasn’t in love with you. but
I thought you were swell!"
"And now you don't?”
"You’re so cocky about it,” he pro
tested, in a bewildered tone. "So sort
of—shameless!” He said: "See here,
what's the answer?”
She said almost pleadingly: "Make
It a little easier for me. can't you.
Bob? It's not much fun trying to
hang on to a man who wants to get
away.”
“Why do you then?” He looked
at her in sudden recollection. "Was
it Priscilla?” he demanded. "By
gorry. I believe it was! I remember
after she talked to you. all of a sudden
you were bound we’d come on this
cruise. Was it something she said?”
“Why did you come?" she coun
tered.
"Because I could see you wanted
to!” He added honestly: "And I knew
it would make Priscilla wild. She
had said some pretty rough things
when I met her at the door that aft
ernoon: and I was sore-”
She touched his head, laughing
softly. “So was I." she assented. "She

GAINS REPORTED
2,142 Permits Issued in 31
Cities in November—Val
uation $5,267,000.
Details from the monthly report
of the Federal Reserve Bank of Rich
mond received here this week show
that building inspectors in 31 fifth:
district cities issued 3,143 permits
in November this year, compared with
1,935 permits issued in November last
year. Estimated valuation figures
totaled $5,367,569, an increase of 74.7
per cent above the total of 93,014.411
reported tor November, 1934, and 337
per cent above 91.564,651 reported in
November, 1933.
Twenty-one of the 31 cities reported
higher valuation figures for the 1935
month, including five of the six largest
cities in the district. Some of the
smaller cities reported relatively high
figures last month, due in several in
stances to single large projects
financed in whole or in part by public
funds.
Contracts actually awarded in No
vember for construction wortc in the
fifth district, Including both rural and
urban projects, totaled $16,417,226,
compared with $8,599,431 awarded In
November, 1934, and $14,965,990
awarded In November, 1933.
Of the awards in November this
year, $4,427,501, or 27 per cent, was
for residential work, compared with
$1,930,011, or 22.4 per cent, for this
type of work In November, 1934.

ELECTRIC REFRIGERATOR
SALES GAIN IN ’36 SEEN
Increase Set at 18 Per Cent by
Official After National
Survey.
Electric refrigerator sales for 1936
probably will show an increase over
1935 of 19 per cent, declared Howard
E. Blood, president of a refrigerator
manufacturing firm, in announcing
the results of the company'* third
annual Nation-wide marketing study,
made with the help of newspapers
In every section of the country, among
35,000 housewi.es. Sales will likely
approximate 2,230,000 units in 1936,
said Blood.
“Buying intent for 1936," he said,
“is more positive than it has been
in years. Wage earners are gaining
new confidence. Prom all indications,
they believe the depression to be well
over.
“Newspaper readers have been build

FRATERNAL GROUP
MADE MORTGAGEE
Modern Woodmen of America Ap
proved Under Title II of
F. H. A.
The Modern Woodmen of America,
one of the largest fraternal insurance
companies in the world, has just been
approved as a mortagee under title 2
of the Federal Housing Administra
tion.
Headquarters of the group are at
Rock Island. 111. The society was in
corporated May 5, 1884. and the
insurance fund was originally estab
lished through contributions from the
members. When the fund grew to
a considerable size it was decided to
invest the money and increase the
fund.
The fraternal insurance field is a
wide holder of residential mortgages
and the following organizations have
been approved as mortgagees under
the single-mortgage system: Wood
men of the World. Denver. Colo.: Su
preme Council of the Western Catholic
Union. Quincy. 111.: Lutheran Mutual
Aid Society, Waverly, Iowa; Ancient

Federal Loan Unit Cites
Great Potential Dwell
ing Demand. ■
By the Associated Press.
The Federal Home Loan Bank Board
finds the home-building picture * in
creasingly favorable.”
"New building has started." says an
article to be published in its official
magazine next month. "The potential
demand for homes Is gTeat, the eco
nomic factors are Increasingly favor
able. What then, may we expect of
1936 In the way of new building?
500,000 Seen in 1936.
"Estimates vary widely—and some
of them seem wild. One forecast sees
500.000 new dwelling units in 1936;
another nearly 1.000 000 iu the next
two years • • *.
"However, if only the same percent
age of gain is experienced in 1936 as in
1935. the new year will see over 200,
000 homes built.
"Compared with the low levels of the
last five years, that will be a boom."
Factors Creating Demand.
The bank body lists several factors
contributing to the potential demand
for homes, among them:
The accumulated "deficit" of dwell
ing units; the large "marriage reserve"
—the excess of new marriages over
marriages terminated; obsolescence
and depreciation: desire of home own
ers to escape from run-down neighbor
hoods.
The article says that in all cities of
25.000 or more, the number of families
; increased much more rapidly than the
| number of dwelling units between 1932
and 1934.
The normal "new family" demand
for homes was restrained by "artificial
j limitations" such as doubling-up
j "which oppose deeply rooted social de
! sires of our people and for that rea
son can not last forever."
