The whole new program of educa
4 tion in real estate method which the
VnM/vno 1 A •c/u.intinn ftf TTcta

of the need for men of training and
Judgment to meet the new condi
tions of real estate demand,
v "Education in business fields in
cluding real estate has pretty much
proceeded by recording and observing
what has been the practice. Actual
business, on the other hand, is always
facing the future,” Mr. Rose points
out. "The case-study courses in ap
praisal. in real estate management
and in real estate brokerage which
will be offered by the association’s
institutes and divisions in co-opera
tion with the School of Business of
* the University of Chicago have been
organized in such detail toy the Insti
tutes and divisions themselves as part
of their official work that they meas
urably extend the organized body of
knowledge in these fields. They
grow out of present real estate busi
ness actualities and will face the
future every step of the way.”
Cited by Mr. Rose as calling for the
best real estate experience and train
ing that can be brought to bear upon
it: New leasing situation for both
business properties and residential
properties; finding best use for re
maining holdings of large institutions;
requirement of new normal business
for both appraisal thought and mort
gage thought; new home building,

existing practical materials and

Nearly 200 builders, representing
almost every section of New Jersey,
are backing the “bonded house plan"
announced recently by the presi
dent of a large Passaic lumber manu
facturer, as a means of driving unscru
pulous builders out of the field and at
the same time creating public confi
dence in home construction. About
100 builders have made applications
to construct houses under the bonded
plan, which insures the construc
tion, the material, the design and
the contract price. The bond of
an indemnity house will be placed on 1
each house built under the plan.

Movability Note of Season

NEW YORK, N. Y„ May 23.—
Movability is the new note this sea
son. Everything from the chaise
longue to the tea table has rubber
tired wheels. And as for chairs and
settees, rocking is in vogue again.
Those who have old-fashioned rock
ers are bringing them out. Others are
buying the new metal chairs with
semi-circular supports that prevent
backward tipping or those which al
low one to sway luxuriously up and
down. The always popular glider has
smart new colored finishes and a
smoother motion than ever.
White is in the lead for porch and
terrace furniture, with bright red
blue and green crowding close on its
heels. Weatherproof textiles in these
popular colors—often plain—cover
the unusually comfortable cushions
of the latest chairs and settees
Harmonizing with these bright hues
are the new color schemes tor painted
walls of sun porches.
; room is often a color problem. It
j needn’t be, however, as many subur
ban homes In the metropolitan dis
trict prove. To unify the background,
walls and trim are often painted the
same color. Green is still a pupular
choice, for it softens the glare of the
! sunlight. It Isn’t the heavy green
: of the past, though, but a very light
Spring green, or that yellowish green
known as chartreuse—or a light olive
green. It may be grayed with a little
white paint and a dash of black—oi
it may be light blue-green, especially
if the sun porch is used mostly in the

a splendid background for the white

Home Designs Selected by
Magazine Editor as
Indicative of the wide-spread inter
est aroused by the Home Building
Service Plan, a program sponsored by
the Federal Home Loan Board to im
prove the design and construction
standards of the small home, Ethel B.
Power, associate editor of House Beau
tiful Magazine, recently selected six of
the home designs offered under the
plan as outstanding examples of what
can be done to provide moderately
priced houses, having an efficient plan,
architecturally correct designs and
ample living accommodations, and
which may be built on monthly pay
ments of from $35 to $70.
The designs chosen by Mrs. Power
were prepared by the Architects Small
Home Service of Washington, D. C.,
and are available for inspection by in
terested home builders at the Perpet
ual Building Association. This concern
Introduced the plan locally some weeks
ago in co-operation with the Federal
Home Loan Bank Board.
Explained in Detail.
The service was explained In detail
and the architectural drawings were
exhibited by Philip E. Schreier, prom
inent local architect and one of the
prime movers in the Architects Small
Home Service, at the recent conven
tion of the American Institute of Ar
chitects at Williamsburg, Va. Mr.
Schreier told of the plan's practicability
as demonstrated by the large number
of Washingtonians who are taking ad
vantage of Its protective features. It
was pointed out that, whereas the
average Individual was not equipped
to cope with the complexities of get
i ting full value for his building dollar,
I seemingly unsoluable problems such as
! the mo6t advantageous placement of
the house In the lot, specifying the
right kind and quality of materials,
Kjuipment and fixtures, the securing of
bids and awarding of contracts, the
obtaining of permits and clearance of
waivers or liens are every-day occur
rence with the seasoned building tech
Sought Institute’s Aid.
It was this situation which moved
the Federal Home Loan Bank Board
to enlist the co-operation of the
American Institute of Architects and
Its member lending institutions to
make available to the public the essen
tials of a complete architectural ad
visory and construction supervisory
service in the form of the Home Build
ing Service Plan, at a cost so low its
use becomes a justified necessity even
for the most modest home.
The value of the plan from the view
point of the lqpding institution and its
shareholders is manifest when it be
comes evident that the long-term loans
required are secured by soundly con
structed homes of good architectural
design thus giving both the lender and
the borrower extra security for their

Spar Varnish for Protection.
Hickory garden furniture—the sort
