'APARTMENT YIELD TOO, LOW RE RN MACOMBEIR Housing Expert Says Investors Are Receiving Only 3 Per Cent on Money. Investors in apartment house proj ects are receiving an average return on their money of only 3 per cent, in stead of 6 per cent, to which they are justified, according to an annoinnee ment today of the United Statep lious Ing Corporation, through its retiring vice president. Irving E. 'Macomber. Money Invested in residence prop ertles is bringing in a return of but I per cent, it was declared. The de ductions were developed from data returnet! by the constituent bodies of the National Association of Real Es tate Boards in rcsponse to question ttares on real estate investments. The figures were for the construe tion year just passed. According to the tabulation com piled by Mr. Macomber. the yearly to tal expense for upkeep of residence properties represents 9.6 per cent of the investment. This with the inter est of 6 per cent, would justify the owner in charging a gross rental of 15.6 per cent. However, the statis tics show that an average gross rent al of but 13.8 per cent was obtained during the period covered. 'lais would mean, it Is pointed out. that, in renting a residence costing the-owner $10.000 a rental of $130 a month would be necessary to net a retura of 6 per cent. On this basis the yearly upkeep, including main tenante. 2.8 per cent; service, 1 per cent; insurance, 2 per cent; taxes and assessments, 1:4 per cent; vacancies and bad accounts. 7 per cent; depre ciation and obsolescence. 3 per cent, and admInistration. S per cent, would amount to $960. A gross rerntal of 20.2 per cent on the Investment Is justified on apart ments, the figures show, whereas the actual rental obtained averaged 17.2 per cent. The total yearly expense was 14.2 per cent and the defncit on justified returns 3 per cent. AssumIng that an apartment house cost t~ie owner $100,000, he would be justified, according to Mr. Mdacom beres figuring, in charging a yearly rental for the apartments aggregat ing 820.200. netting him a return of $6,000. The tabulation reveals, how ever, that the yearly return in such instanee actually was only 53.000. In arriving at the tottal expense per year of apartment houses the same factor, were taken into con ideration as with resid'ence proper tis., Depreciation and obsolescence were estimated and assumed In the replies to questionnaires.

Don.& Sow .....s...4 ,..s.. nea n..ms.3ma AmW dential P EfFICENCY LOWERS COST OF BUILDING iew York Firm's System of Re moving Waste Takes Terror Out of Construction Cost. Co-ordination In construction, the elimination of waste in time and ef fort, has taken the terror out of con struction costs. Application of act enti fic methods in building and in the handling of building details. develop ed as a result of thio unprecedented high cost of labor and materials. has considerably reduced the price of building at this time. Concerns which have hesitated about putting up the needed addition are now planning to proceed since it has been shown by the eradication of waste in every de tail that the addition will not cost nearly aa much as was expected. Construction industry was not as highly efficient in every department before the war as were some other great businesses. Wonderful things were accomplished but they cost more than they should have cost. The price conditions which came as a result of the war fotred construction interests to find a way of lowering these fig ures. The agency form of contract de veloepment by iowight P. Robinson & CO.. prominent New York builders, which recently absortled the business of Westinghoue. Church & Kerr. one of the great building concerns of the country has aecomplished much in re during cost figures in new construe tion. The contract places the firm under the direct control of the man who is building any by the terms of the agreement every step in the con struetion of the projfct is timed to such a nicety that no time is wasted fron the moment the job has been awarded to the completion of the structure. HOW TIME IN SAVED. This saving in time is brought about in several ways. In the first place, working under this form of contract the work in the field. in the way of preparation of grounds. roads. railroad connections, loading stations, excavations, etc., can pro ceed as soon as the ground layout ran be prepared. Deuring the time that construction equipment is being as sembled the engineer can draw up his foundation details and place them in the hands of tile construction organ iration as rapidly as required. While the foundationa are being built the plans of the superstructure can be perfecteT, aid during the period of erection of the superstructure the plans for installing machinery. in eluding the necessary purchases it conneetion therewith can be made in order that the equipment can be ready for installation as soon as the buildings are prepared to receive it. If the plant under construetion in volves operatitig machinery the vont struction feorce can install the ma ehinery and giwe it the initial opera tion in conjunction with the experts (of the operating organizatioll to the end that as the machinery And facili ties of the plant come into smeooth I working order the 4'onstructionl cor ganlizationt earl step out. leaving the owner im po.ssession of an operating plant complete in every detail. A soend timen-eaving ec mentt in the agency contract is the ability of the owner, upon the advice of his own engineers a ld the construct lore organization. to decide promptly as to purchases. minor ehanges of plan. substitutiuns of building material to meet the changing conditions of the market. labor disputeP, unusual de vices for expediting progress, such as night work. overtime, labor-saving machinery. etc. CLIENT5' BUILDING DEPA RTMENT. Under the fee basis the contractor really becomes a building department under the control of the client. incejud ing the contractors' organization. de signing engineers, system of account ing. etc. In other iords. the con tractor places at the disposael of the client all the facilities and experi encv at his command. It saves time and cost through more active co operation dnd harmony between the designing and constructing forces and prevents needless expense through duplication of work by en gineers and contractors. $110,000 IN FEW WEEKs Clarence Welch Disposes of Attrac tive Properties in Various Residential Sections.

ABBEY IS IMPE'RILED BY OLD "HIGH COST" LONON, July 10.-Westminter~ Abbey. the most famous shrine of the Bitish Empire. is Imperilled by the high cost of existence, according t~o the aily Eupress. The ancient es thdr's1 fixed income Is Inadequate to meet necessary repairs for main tenance of the struicture's fabric. About 815,000 was spent annualhly before the war in order to maintain peuity of the walls, many centuries old, hut building costs have advanced iA per cent.

They are factors that must be con jured with, because they lick stiil ity, changing overnight, suflciently to defeat the plans of the home builder. The cry of the builder, from the day the things of war were -laid aside and business of peaceful prog ream- resumed, has been "Stabilise prices." But the laboring mda and the dealer in nterials claim, and with some degree of justice. that they are not masters of this condition, be cause their prices are based on other prices and that stabiliity must start elsewhere beforelIt can be considesed in the construction field. Ijut de spite this logic, the accopipany'ing figures, built up by labor unions and material dealers, are the immediate cause of ths continued shortage of homes in thIs city. If they could be trimmed down, there is every reason to believe that capital would support the constritction of many homes. CERTAIN COUTS WILL DROP. Capital considers the prices quoted below as developed by an unprece dented condition, and though the plight of the city Is appreciated and the result that may come out of this condition not underestimated, the man holding the money bag still flg ures in dollars and cents and places his money where he thinks it will be safe.

Conditions across the water were compared with those it this country in a current real es tate journal. London literally grew around farms. which were never sold nor divided, the article points out. Thus, the Duke of Westminster owns 400 arces of land in the heart of Lon don, all covered with buildings, and this property brings him approxi mately $115,000.000 a year in rents. The Duke of Bedford owns 250 arres and the Duke of Norfolk and the Earl of Cadogan each own 200 acres. Half a dozen individuals own 150 acres each, and twice that num ber own a hundred.
