One of the most active committees
Of the local real estate board is the
conventien club committee, recently
erganlsed, to bring to the attention of
real meat. men the advantages gained
**tndng the annual conventi'ns
arthe national association. These eor
Ventions. It is pointed out, have heen
considered a post-graduate course in
Real estate. Men prominent In reaity
dirles frnom all sections of the country
meet at these gatherings and diseusi
the praetical problems presented in
real estate work. In this way much
NOstructive work Is done In the mm.
ter of standardising the practlce of
real estate. In addition, the advantage

In order to present some concrete
and pracdoal proposition to the mqm
bare of the local board that would re
suIt in a much larger representation
6r4M Washington, the committee de.
vised a unique plan of financing the
ebe of the delegation. A definite
ulation of gross traveling expenses
was determined and the members of
this club have agreed to pay Into a
Oscnmon fund monthly installments so
that at convention time the total ex
money will have been .avod.
funds as received are being in
vested in first mortgage notes and the
interest return on the investment will
be usng by the delegation to defray
j extra expenses, such as badges. adve-.
tidg paraphernalia, etc., and the sur
plus will be returned to the members
In the shape of a cash dividend.
The next convention, which in ex
pected to be held in June, will as
semble In San Fran-isco. The finan
olal arrangement made by this club
permits its members to make the trip
at a minimum of expense. By reason
of this club arrangement a consider
asie saving is made over the ordinary
expenses of a trip to California.
The committee in charge of this
matter met last Wednesday and o'i
lined a plan of action somewhat slini
lar to a membership drive with tw
hope that a delegation of at least one
hundred will represent Washington in
San Francisco. The plan is that each
member of the committee will mak
personal visits to every office can
nected with the board and outline the
advantages and plans for attendance
at the next convention. It is also ex

The special course in real estate
being conducted by the Y. M. C. A.
has reached the point where the act
ual practice of real estate is being de
scribed to the class by the local real
tors who have volunteered to assist
in the development of this special edu
cational work.
William H. Saunders. former presi
dent of the Washington Real Estate
Board, lectured to the class on the
subject of "The Management of a
Real Estate Office" last Tuesday
night. Mr. Saunders pointed out that
truthfulness and honesty were the
first essentials and necessary equip
ment of any real estate office that ex
pects to succeed. He stressed on the
point of polite and courteous service
to clients and the public and advised
the class to become familiar with the
fundamental principals of real estate
before embarking in individual ven
According to Mr. Saunders' views
the manager of a real estate business
should have personality, executive
ability and a thorough knowledge of
the business. As the success of a real
estate business depends almost entire
ly on the executive manager, who
usually is the proprietor, it is neces
sary for him to so arrange his organi
satiot that it will function in the most
efficient manner. He also discussed
the matter of correspondence. So
many features of the real estate bus
iness must necessarily be handled
through the mall, the lecturer said
that while subordinates in a real estate
organization should be permitted to
handle correspondence In their par
ticular work, the executive manager
should keep in close touch with all
correspondence that emanates in his
The next lecture will be held on
Tuesday at 7:30 p. m.. at which time
J. F. M. Bowie, prominent in local
real estate circles, will discuss "Man
egement of Apartment Houses and
and Dwellings."
It is announced that a new chain
of music '4tores, The United Phono

lease for one of the stores in the new
City Club building being completed
on the south side of G street be

streets. This concern has several
stores in New York and the New
England States, and is planning to
open three or four other stores in
Washington, as well as four or five
