Construction "Work Main
tains Volume Through
out United States.
Although tho peak of buildlns ac
tivities for the current season has
been passed, construction work Is
maintaining a volume In accordance
with the remarkable record for the
year, according to a bulletin Issued by
S. W. Straus U Co.. New York There
I Is every indication that, barring tho
usual seasonal Interferences, building
will continue In unprecedented pro

able, not only In point of general eon

j the Increase which has been made In
I homes for the people. Nothing could
1 be of greater benefit to tiio nation
' than the Increased practices of thrift
; which the growth of the home-ownln.,-movement
indicates. A nation of
homo owners Is bound to be a na
tion ot" progress, happiness and right
living. Therefore. In analyzing the
current developments in the building
1 sltuutlon tho feature, of greatest alg-
nifloanre Is not the f.-irt that a build
ing boom has existed over tho coun
try such as has never before brrn
j witnessed, hut the rhief factor Is that
1022 has seen more. Americans be
come home owners than during any
I previous year in our history.

1 s'-agen there Is a tendency tow-aid
1 more Industrial construction, and It
. would not be surprising If a consid
erable development of this naturo
were witnessed In tho near future.
It must be borne in mind that tha
bulk of the nation's construction fa

of all types .s general business de

an lncr;ised demand for business
