HOUSES F. O. B. FACTORY
The day of the factory-made home distinctly here, at least around New ork. There is a tremendous de land for It In all of the outlying su srbs. In some of which you can now Bd practically whole streets that are been shipped f. o. b. from some Ktory In the middle west. Some of te houses are of the light, portable rpe, and some are of the cut-and tted kind, which are unpacked and ut together like pieces of a jigsaw Bzzle, and just looks as if they had ten transported whole, like motor trs, to their destinations. By exempting new homes from tax ion for a period of several years, ie State has managed to give a tre endous impetus to building, so that ie building trade, handicapped by iternal dissension is far behind, on i contracts. Some builders declare at any one wanting to build a house •ting less than (15,000 cannot even >t the foundations dug before next ngust. Hence, people who are im ktienl for homes are buying them om the factories or department ores. Not long ago, for instance, a New »rk business woman, who was ex emely weary of paying what seem I to her to be excessive rent, de led that she wanted her own home. • It s not only the rent," she ex ained, in developing her new idea, t's the noise. The only way you in achieve quiet in New York is to tve a place of your own on a lot [fticlently far out of the city and fllciently Isolated to avoid near llghbors. I am looking for such a pt, and 1 intend to find it and be felling there in great contentment 1 Spring, when New York opens all l windows.” The real estate agent, who had lard of many such ambitious quests (ore, shook his head dlscouraging , and told the woman that she tuld have a hard timp finding isola in accompanied by modern gas and iter pipes. Yet two weeks later be is willing to acknowledge that the ipossible had been accomplished, le woman had her lonely lot, which e had bought at a bargain price at leal estate auction. Then, upon the ength of her ownership of the lot, e arranged with a large Chicago ill order house for the purchase of two-story “cut-and-fltted” house Staining eight rooms . A RIVAL OF ALADDIN ■"In a few weeks," said the real es t^te agent, "the house began to ar itfe, coming in pieces, the framing Ad other principal parts first. She Immediately hired a few men to put Btogether, and I know It was not ■^re than ten weeks from the time ■its bought the lot and ordered the Muse until she was living in it. f|s*Theae new department store htWses are going up on every tract of land I've sold this year,” continued its agent. "There are hundreds of timm under way or completed on Lriog Island and in Westchester coun ty. They're just as attractive and Stnfortable as those that are slowly ilt by hand, and they are, I be Ere, the greatest remedy that has been found for the housing prob I’AWITV PRODUCTION AIM NOW I Before the introduction of tnachin |r> a single workman, unaided, could Rake only a few pins a day, while low the daily product of a workman. Insisted by modern machinery, is 16. 110,000 pins, complete and stuck in ■per. The same thing can be done regard to houses. It is being done, rom now on, people can buy their >uses in the same department stores here they buy pins." This is not quite the case; as yet, ren in New York, where the demand r ready-made houses is so vigorous; it you can choose your home by tail through the aid of a catalogue, ost of the real estate agents have tese new house catalogues, and the bw York public library did have a rge collection, which have almost ■appeared owing to the frequent efts. The prices <fl the houses nge usually from >1500 up, accord I to the number of rooms and the kboration of detail. In the light, .called "portable” type there can obtained anything from a two >m shack to a large Sunday school ■tiding or a garage. portable structures are partic desirable tor use on property Is tied up by litigation. Placed the transferable lots, they can be at a good profit and as soon property is free they can be apart and easily removed to location. the most interesting of the of factory houses is a solid concrete house, made on the plan and delivered complete to by means ot a huge 10 truck, which carries the house on a structural steel cradle and Is equipped with holsU and other ma i chlnery for lifting It gently on and | off. It Is said that two men can load, | deliver and set up such a house com plete within a radius of SO miles of the ftctory In one day. ONE-PIECE CONCRETE HOUSE The architectural features of the house are even more amazing. The one-unit, which is the smallest type, for instance, is described as posses sing a front door which opens into a little vestibule, with a coat closet. The center of the house is occupied by a combined dining and living room, although ordinarily there is no hint that it is used for meals. A large mirror on the wall, when swung down and rested on two folding legs, becomes the dining room table. This discloses, in front of the mirror, a revolving server which communi cates with the kitchen. When the meal Is finished, the dishes are piled on the server and, when this is re volved, they are transferred to the kitchen at the sink. The kitchen contains, besides the sink, a four burner gas stove and oven, refrigera tor and electric washer. Opposite the kitchen door is the bath fully equipped. “At the end of the house, off the living room, in a small sun room with a built-in window seat. Communi cating with this is a small dressing room. At the other end of the house is a den, with identical arrangement. In each of these rooms full-sized beds disappear Into the celling, the bottom of the bed serving as a large section of the celling. These beds are lowered by means of a crank in the dressing room, and at night one end rests on the window seat and the oth er on two-folding legs. “The heating plant is a small stove in a fireproof alcove off the hallway, and this has been found sufficient to heat the house in the coldest weather The coal bin, which Is on the roof, holds two tons and Is arranged so that by pulling a lever the fuel drops down from above.” All of these novel appurtenances come with the one-unit at a price of $1500. Two units, consisting of six rooms and wifli even more elabor ate furnishings, cost 13000, and so on up to the scale until you have an accumulation of units which approxi mates in size and architectural grand eur a Fifth avenue palace. The factory house is only in its infancy, but enthusiasts assert that there is no limit to its future expan (Blon. DEVISE WAY TO CONTROL RADIO Use of the radio telephone tor com munication between single Individ uals as in the case of the ordinary wire telephone “is a perfectly hope less notion." Secretary Hoover told the radio conference which began re cently before the Department of Com merce to devise means of regulating the use of radio telephony in the in terest of assuring the largest public benefit from U. Representatives of various publlr service corporations, electrical man ufacturing companies and other radio telephone users, both commercial and amateur, from coast to coast, were on hand to present their views con cerning the situation brought about by recent strides in broadcasting and the need to assign “ethdr” to the dif ferent classes of users of the wire less telephone to eliminate interfer ence. Within the past four or five months. Mr. Hoover said, such rapid develop ment has been made in the art of radio telephony that to-day there are more than 600,000 wireless tele phone receiving sets in operation in the United States. A year ago. he added, there were less than 60,000. “W’e are, Indeed, to-day upon the threshold of a new means of wide spread communication of intelligence that has the most profound import ance from the point of view of pub lic education and public welfare," Mr. Hoover, continued. "Obviously if lo.ouu.uuu teiepnone subscribers are crying through the air tor their mates they will never make a Junction; the ether will be Oiled with frantic chaos with no com municstion of any kind possible. In other words, the wireless telephone haB no deflnlte fleld, and that Is tor spread of certain of pre-determined material of public Interest from cen tral stations.” This, he added, must be limited to news, education, entertainment and commercial purposes and matter of Importance to large groups of the community at the same time. Ml ALL-ABSORBING TOPIC Elsewhere la this Impression is an i article 'which epitomises the magni tude of the Anaconda Copper Mining Company’s operations In Montana and Its status as a taxpayer in the com- I monwealth to the north. The Infor mation contained In the article Is very incomplete, as the methods of taxing the great concern and the in justice practiced by the taxing pow ers of the State are not dwelt upon. It may be stated, however, that the Anaconda company’s representative, quoted in the article, made It plain that unconscionable extravagance in the conduct of State business wa« proving a bane to the State and that a halt would have to be called it the State was to prosper in the future and become what it should be—one of the most Important industrial, manufacturing and farming States in the Union. . A11 that was said about conditions In Montana applies with just as much Importance to Utah, says the Salt Lake Mining Review, where the mining and farming Interests are being taxed out of existence. Something has got to be done to trim "overhead.’* In consequential reduction of clerks’ sal aries and similar expedients are not going to bring results, nor are they going to satisfy either the big or lit tle taxpayers. The frills of govern ment must be dispensed with and when the next session of the Legis lature convenes It will be up to those who are selected to represent the peo ple who "pay the fiddler” to find a way of sweeping out many of the commissions, boards, bureaus, etc., that now call for huge maintenance sums of money. The mining indus try, which is the chief industry of the State, must be permitted to continue, tor Identically the same reason that makes It Imperative In Montana. Publications in every western State are discussing the "tax menace" from gome angle, and with good excnse. Politicians will do well to read the handwriting. Here Is the way the Arizona Mining Journal looks at the situation: From almost every State in the West comes the plea of industry for tax reduction. Practically every west ern State is loaded with a political overhead which would not be justi fied by ten times the population. Every public offlcial denies all re sponsibility for the Increased tax bur den and says, “If the people vote these measures what can I do?” Admitting without argument that the people are to blame for all the tax burdens under which they stag ger at present, what Is to be done about It? Obviously If the people are resposlble for the tax increase it is up to the people to see that they get a tax reduction. When tax reduction Is suggested the present beneficiaries of our tax system Bay it simply can not be done, but the fact remains that it must be done. Private industry has reduced ex pense all along the line to meet changed conditions and government must adjust itself to a more econom ical basis in the same manner as the individual and business has done. The man who fights for tax reduc tion to-day is often held up to ridi cule and calumny by those who prey off the present tax system and pay lit tle or no share toward the burdens of government. The power of pres ent political parties will be over thrown unless they join willingly in the campaign for tax reduction. The law of supply and demand reg ulates all commodities, but it cutt little ice in love or politics.

COPPER SHINGLES PROVING POPULAR New York Curb: The Anaconda Copper Mining Company has secured s contract to cover with copper shing les the roof of the new Holy Inno cents Church in Brooklyn. This pro duct has met with great success thus far, especially in the metropolitan district. This copper shingle comes in three slses—6 by 18 Inches, 8 by 18 and S by 80, and weights approximately 84 pounds a square of 100 feet, probab ly the lightest substantial material for* roofing purposes. This weight compares with 200 pounds for the wooden shingle, 400 to 600 pounds for asbestos, 760 to 1,200 pounds for slate and 1,000 to 2,000 pounds for tile of the same area. Legislation has been proposed In several States to abolish wooden shingles and in several cities an ord inance prohibiting them is already in effect. Anaconda's shingle Is made of a specially developed grade of cop per 99.95 per cent pure. The com pany's present plant at Perth Amboy, N. J., which will start operations Feb ruary 1, can turn out more than 500 squares daily. Us capacity will be in creased to meet the demand. The copper shingle originally costs about twice as much as the wooden, but enjoys a material price advantage compared with asbestos, slate or tile. In the case of the wooden shingle comparison is had with an unpainted or unstained product which with coats of paint or staining will not last more than ten years as a general average, whereas the copper shingle, which comes in seven colors, will endure as long as the foundation of a building. We pass many a crisis. We also pass the buck.
