Session to Emphasize Material Conservation Wartime construction, stressing conservation of critical materials, ! will be the theme of meetings to be held in 21 cities by the Producers’ Council, national association of I building material units affiliated : with the American Institute of Architects. The first meeting will be held here , next Friday at the Mayflower Ho tel. Richmond H. Shreve of New York, president of the A. I. A., will preside. Speakers will include Lessing J. Rosenwald, chief of the Bureau of Industrial Conservation, W. P. B: Stephen F. Voorhees,, special adviser, construction branch, W. P. B.; Maj. Gen. Eugene Rey bold, chief of engineers, U. S. A: Capt. L. B. Combs, assistant chief. Bureau of Yards and Docks, Navy Department, and D. W. Kimball, president of Associated General Contractors of America. The meetings are planned to reach architects, plant engineers and su perintendents and designers and specifiers generally concerned with the war construction program, it was stated by J. W. Follin, man aging director of the council. The aim, he said, is to emphasize the new approach to design and speci fication made necessary by the i shortage of critical materials and i the need for conservation. A defi | nite statement of ‘ policy will be formulated at the Washington meeting. Sentimenf for Post-War Housing Move Urged Formation of a Nation-wide or ganization to mobilize public opin ion for a vast post-war housing construction drive is urged by Dean ! Walter R. MacComack of the Mas sachusetts Institute of Technology, vice president of the American In stitute of Architects. The work of the organization would be the “back bone” of a program for the re habilitation of American cities now under consideration by the insti tute, according to Dean MacCor nack. It is further suggested that Amer ican architects meet with members of the Royal Institute of British Architects, when possible, to discuss the post-war reconstruction prob lems of Europe and the Orient. Dean MacComack envisions the mobili zation after the war of thousands of technicians, architects and rep resentatives of finance to bring world-wide order out of chaos. As another step in creating in the public mind support of city planning and housing programs that will benefit the community. Dean Mac Cornack proposes that schools adopt educational programs that will em phasize the importance of post-war rehabilitation. Refreshing Color Scheme A bedroom with walls painted a fresh light green to match the rug presents an atmosphere of cool and I refreshing charm. The furniture, painted gray-green with an applied design of garlands, blends pleas ingly with pale green chintz made into quilted spreads and the pleated dressing table flounce with quilted yoke. Flowered hooked rugs, flow ered chair covers and ecru curtains complete the harmony. i M 11 i- ■ i.. ■■ i Percentage Leases Solve Problem for Stores Store leasing during the period of the war presents special problems, since these are days when merchants face uncertainties as to their supply of goods, may presently be unable to make automobile deliveries, may need to experiment with branch shops. The percentage lease iwith a minimum fixed rental) and the option appear to present the most equitable solution of the problem for both tenant and landlord. So says the Journal of Property Management in an article by A. E. MacDougall. New York, vice presi dent of the Queensboro Corp., de velopers of Jackson Heights. His table of percentage lease rates applicable today, summarizing the experience of the Queensboro Corp. as to 71 types of retail businesses, is a feature of the April issue of the journal now on the press, an issue given over to war-period manage ment methods. "The percentage lease, in use successfully for many years, is par ticularly adaptable to times of un certainty. such as the present,” Mr. MacDougall says. "The merchant is cautious as to rental commit ments and the landlord does not want to tie up the property at a depressed rent, with no opportunity of improvement in the event of a sudden ending of the war and im proved business conditions. "The percentage lease, with mini mum rental, can bridge the gap be tween them and put the vacant store to use.” Maryland Estate Sold Drumcliffs, 242-acre estate with j 2- miles of frontage on the Patuxent River and St. Thomas Creek, in Southern Maryland, has been pur chased by John E.
