"OWN A HOME" ('amllaign of Education to Show IFolly of Rtenting With more than 100 New Orleans business men and tirms financially supporting the enterprise, "Own A iome'" has been given a whilrwind Istart, and hundreds of persons have been given new starts in life through the message. "Make New Orleans A City of Homes." The New Orleans campaign, one of the very few in which the public has not been asked to contribute and which is for the civic and in (dividaul benefit of everyone, is part of a national movement. With wages of workers at the highest mark, with the subject of "Own A Home" before every Or leanian as a result of the big public ity and advertising campaign, the campaign leaders believe great and lasting good will result for the city. The campaign. purely educational, is to show Orleanians and any others the advantages of owning their own home: the folly of renting, and how easy it is to become independent of landlords. New Orleans is just now striking hard blows for commercial success, particularly through the industrial canal project, and the housing prob lem will be difficult when the canal is realized. An interesting table of rent fig ures has been compiled by the "Own A Home" leaders, showing how much rent amounts to over a given period of years with interest at an average rate: Per 10 15 20 25 M',n:h Yar.

Your March 14 issue reached me here in Texas today. Under the heading of "Contractor~' Committee Makes Statement" appears some news wherein certain men claim that Charles J Donner might be sattisae tory as a clerk, but does not, in their opinion, possess the general qualifi cations devolving upon the secretary of the General Contractors' Assoe ation. Realizing, as I do, the ability of C J Donner as a secretary, by his faithful and eelfficient service for four years and more as secretary of the Levee Board under Governor L K. Hall, forces me to take some stock in Donner's idea of being persecuted. The fact that Donner served as secretary of this General Contract ors' Association from August 1, 1917, until January 22, 1918, proves be yond doubt that his services as such must have apparently been Natistao tory. If his services were not satm factory, or if he did not possess the general qualifications, etc., why was he given thirty days in which to re sign? Why was he not diasmsled immediately? fro request an employe to reasig is O. K., but to may his general quaB feations are such that he cannot pms form certain duties is to harm him In landing a position similar to the one from which his resignation w requested. Yours very truly, T. 0. HATES, 1100 Texas Street, El Pao, Tel.
