ALL BUILDING RESTRICTIONS
The following is contained in a telegram from the
WAR INDUSTRIES BOARD TO THE STATE
COUNCIL OF DEFENSE:
We believe that there is now available sufficient
labor, fuel, transportaion and building materials to
warrant the withdrawal of ALL RESTRICTIONS on
building projects. We feel it the duty of the board to
AID THE PUBLIC AND THE INDUSTRIES TO
RETURN TO NORMAL CONDITIONS AS QUICK
LY AS POSSIBLE."
- The above statement, altho brief, is authoritative. It clearly indicates that the government wants to EN
COURAGEALL BUILDING OPERATIONS and reinstate BUSINESS ON A PEACE BASIS.
We are now released from our former pledges, limiting the amount of materials to be sold and you are again
in a position to BUY BUILDING MATERIALS IN UNLIMITED QUANTITIES for any purposes whatever.
