EL PASO HERALD EDITORIAL and MAGAZINE PAGE BETTER TO BUILD OR BUY A HOME THAN TO GO ON BORROWING ONE TO ACQUIRE a permanent Some, or at least to hare a a roof one can can oners own and bold tee noose as a good investment, is the ambition of sen and women who order their lire wisely and look into the future. Seal estate is the foundation of all permanent investment and accumulated wealth and capital; sometimes directly, some times indirectly, but the possession of part of the land sur face of the earth is the best guaranty of security and pro tection against disaster in the family. , The amount of land available for a particular use is limited, there is so increase in usable area except that which comes from the constructive works of man, and the owner of the land takes toll from an the labor that men do to accumulate and better themselves. If the owner does pis own development he is better off, but one gains his 'increment" from the general growth of population and spread of civilisation, even thoagh be may contribute noth ing himself to the general good. That is an economic fact even though it may sot be economic law or economic equity. It lies within the power of most persons, men and women, in a community like El Paso to acquire land and own a home. Wage workers and salaried persons can, if they will, save enough out of their earnings to make the moderate payments commonly required under prevailing systems, to pay for a home. Sy cooperative effort, money can be advanced and interest rates kept down, so that in the long run the cost of acquiring ownership is so more than the cost of paying rent for a loss term of years. Whether one will plan his own home and build it to suit his personal ideas and preferences, or will look over the market and buy a structure that some one else has built, is a matter of personal choice and of the market conditions of the moment. The ideal home is sot one that is bought "ready made," but one that is carefully planned and that grows with its owner. An ideal home expresses personality, and this is rarely possible with a house that one bays off-hand. In as ideal home, small or large, there are introduced many little touches that express a lifelong vearnrng or a pressing desire or need, for comfort, con venience, and general nsableness. Sometimes these can be obtained by making over a ready-buSt house, but the bet ter way. if one would have a home that is indeed a personal expression and an intimate part of life, is to plan minutely nd lovingly, and work out the plan for one's self. This is not feasible in an cases, and it is fortunate for a large proportion of home makers that there exists a thorough system of buildisg houses for sale, and that well omit nomes that hare been carefully planned come on the market rrom time to time by reason of their owners leav ing the city or acquiring new homes. Some time ago The Herald remarked that just at this time it is cheaper to buy than to build, that is, that the selling market just now is lower on the average than the cost of buying a lot and building a house exactly like the one offered for sale that may catch one's fancy. Some building material men have contested this statement, and declare that the bufldrag or "replacement" cost today is lov. er than the market price of homes offered for sale. People will have their own ideas about "", gained from their own experience. But it is as interesting topic of dis cass'on, interesting to prospective home owners and to Douoing contractors, material men, wage workers, and realty dealers. So it is worth while to present the point of view of the material men, with a chance that other phases of the "own your home" problem may be brought out. It them. It is service they are after, and Service and South west begin with the same letter, as also do Material Hen, Merit, and Modesty, and Realtor and Reliability. The main thing is, acquire a home, save rent, and give son and daughter something to tie to.

By D WIG EVERY residence street in 1 Paso can make itself a parkway if it wilL Every residence street can have a broad strip of grass and trees and shrubs and flowers be tween the curb and the f ootwalk if it will. When you ride or walk along Magoffin avenue or Arizona or Nevada street or Bio Grande street or through Mucdy Heights or Austin Terrace or Manhattan Heights or Richmond Terrace, do you never wish you might have that kind of a parkway an along your own block, in front of your home and your neighbors' homes? You can have a parkway just like these if you will. The city government has a system under which these parkways are developed and maintained. It works perfectly and there has never been any complaint or dodging or slacking along the streets that have adopted the plan. The plan applies to the entire city, and will be adapted to any street where the property owners ask for it. Property owners petition for a parkway. The city re quires that the request be unanimous, as the omission of a single lot would spoil the continuity and beauty of the parkway. When aU the property owners along any street or part of a street so petition, the city calls for bids on the con struction cost, including necessary grading, preparing the son for planting, putting in a special system of water pipes and faucets, and planting trees, shrubs, and grass. The property owners petitioning, agree to pay is cash. is advance, the first cost of construction. They also agree to pay to the city the maintenance cost, which at present Is set at only 16 cents per year per front foot. When the cash is in hand, the city contracts the job and supervises the work. It then becomes responsible for per manent maintenance, and the annual charge is put on the w v. -V.-.-j- Z WWTW6-.

I Genuine Sublimity I GETS STftAK. is asserted that assamine identical hause-nUns in either case, a new house osn be built at as actual saving over the purchase of a house already built, when one takes into account the "Hfe" of the old versus the new house. One must consider how bag it win be before an old house win need paint inside and oat, floors re&aabed, roofs and chimneys repaired, and so as, and compare these costs with the cost of the up to date sew building all fresh and in perfect repair. The material men" say that contractors win today dupli cate a partieular job at a fair figure, and that anyone con sidering the question of bcying or building win do weU to compare the quality of materials used. They also caU at tention to the fact that a Urge proportion of homes are built by firms to sell, aad that the operating firms neces sarily add a considerable profit to the actual construction' cost before naming their prices. AH in aU. thev flatlv "'i 'nai - is noi cheaper to tray than to buiM, and nevr is, except is times of depression.'' Meanwhile, both baying and bsOdisg go merrily on. Every E! Paso beOdiag contractor and baDdisg trade work man is busy, and every material and supply house is selling long orders dafly. This condition is common in the south west; Phoenix for instance k baSding more residences and business blocks swath by month than ever before in its history, and so with many other cities and towns. The fact is southwest eraers win have what they want when they want it, and price does not cut much figure with tax bills each year, separately billed and specially paid for. The charge for maintenance is regarded by the city as a lien os the property, and all property changes hands sub ject to its payment, as with regular taxes. Mew purchasers are thus put os notice, and assume the charge as a matter of course. The result is that thtte parkways are kept up uniformly and in splendid shape. They are watered regularly by the city, the grass is cut, shrubs and trees trimmed, and any that die are promptly replaced without further charge. There has never been a complaint by a property owner os the parked streets against the small maintenance charge, and aU regard the parkways as a valuable asset, that is worth immediately much more than the amount of the initM investment, and that increases in value year by year, adding net merely to the pleasure and comfort of Irvine, but to the market value or asset value of the abutting property. The first cost is small, sever more than 52 a front foot and cacaUy around $1.50 or $1.75 a frost foot is other words, $55 to $65 per average home holding of a lot and a nau. The annual maintenance charge is only a fraction of wear it wonia cost as individual to keep up his own curb parking independently of cooperative action and city super vision. At 16 cents per front foot per year, that is only 54 per year per average lot, or 50 cents rer month for a lot and a half. It would cost four or five times this sum for as indi vidual to keep up his parking os a con-cooperative basis. Hotting would do so much to make El Paso a more de- tightfu! place of residence as the general adoption of the euro parsing, it would make it cooler is summer, break the winds, prevent dust, and provide a play space for the children. It adds to the Uveablesess cf the abutting resi dences, adds to the beauty of the streets, and makes them pjeasanter to drive along, and shady to walk along. More over the presence of trees and grass along tie curb makes it easier to grow mints witmn tne vara, conserving mois ture, retarding evaporation, and creating locally better con- vuons jor iiower growts.
