Members of tha flock Island Real Estate board, la rttxlar session at h Rock Island club yesterday, fceard s report V Olof Z. Cerrln M4 Ben Bon ot the Arm of Cor- gk Horn, architects, on housing cts, aj ttey had been worked sliewhere, in preparation for definite action to bo under take! aoon by the Rock Island ward to meet the boating prob lem in Rock Island. " I Tba plan atreeaed by Mr. Horn pad onlarced noon in the discus- kion which followed by Mr. Cerrin was the plaa for indnatrial houe lag adopted by a housing corpora tion or ui Crosse, wia. The plan provides for the erection of houses wBlch are turned over to the work Ben in an unflnlahed atate and are finished by the purchaeer and oc cupsnt at bla leisure. c Am worked, out in La Croese, the nouses aro aom, unnnisned. at a maximum coat of $2,000. They are Sold on an easy payment plan of toonthly installments, and are turn ed over to the purchaser without Interior finish, porches, nlumbinc. etc. The purchaser, being a faome bwner, is afforded the stimulus to add these as hla time and money permit. t The plan la proving a succesa in 1A Crosse, accordins to the archi tects submitting it for the consid eration of the local board. The housing' corporation there has two tracts including 240 acres, and is finding the plan an excellent solu tion of the problem of industrial noosing. Mr. Horn stated that of the great aaoaat of data submitted on tar ions boosing plana, that dealing wun no La Cross !an seemed the most practicable and worka ble. .' , .

' H ' He presented deOnite instances, tothe number of about fifteen, of factories and various industrial In stttatkms which are considering Rock Island as a possible location for their concern and which need either financial aid or a suitable location provided to induce their location here. He asked the support of the real estate men for the Chamber of Commerce in bringing these Indus tries to Rock Island. He also cit ed instances ot industries which will leave this city unless they can be provided with, other loca tions and room for the proper ex pansion. He was promised by T. B. Reidy, president ot the board, the cooper ation of that body. . A committee to confer with Mr. Hildebrandt and take definite action was appointed by Mr. Reidy, consisting ot E. B. Kreis, X B. Eckhart, George Schneider and Ben Mitchem. Oppose Arsenal Change. The rumored changes in Rock Island arsenal, removal ot depart ments and lessening of the force resulted in the appointment by the president of the board of a com mittee to draw up resolutions pro testing this measure. The resolu tions will be sent to statesmen, asking that their influence be ex erted to prevent the proposed changes. A committee from the real estate men called upon Secretary of War Baker during his recent visit to the arsenal to protest any move of this nature. It was the consen sus of the board as expressed to day that such a move would not only be a tremendous loss -to this community, but that the excellent organisation for producing war time supplies should be maintained as It was developed during the war. Following the report of Mr. Horn on the La Crosse housing project, the advantages of this measure were outlined by Mr. Cerria, who pointed out that it meant a reduc tion to a minimum, of the first costs; that it "helped the workingman to help himself." and that it remedied the danger incurred by temporary housing projects. When shacks are built, the speaker said, with the understanding that they will be later replaced, they are frequently made the permanent residence of the owner and the result is a neighborhood of such undesirable abodes. - .

Leaders Point to Warning. The railroad strike has accen tuated the relationship between the high cost of living and industrial chaos. Samuel Gomyers and the veteran leaders of the railroad brotherhoods are emphatic in their claims that the executive branch of the government ignored their warn ings about the demands of the em ployes and that congress gave evi dence in the railroad legislation that it would not heed the warn ings against radicalism' which Mr. Gompers and his associates feared. Today the government finds itself working side-by side with the con servative leaders of union labor to influence the striking workmen to Don't Forget Your Discount , mini! mill lilllli! iiiiitii WE allow ih diaeaaat at lOe per M.

But those same leaders .whose sincerity has teen doubted again and again have warn ed the government against a policy of neglect and while they are using every effort themselves to keep con trol of their men they insist' that the present situation is " the best proof obtainable that the demands which the railroad men left at the White house as early as last July cannot be longer ignored. Much is expected of the new rail road labor board which has Just been named by President Wilson, but as happened in the coal strike the ultimate burden probably will be imposed upon the consumer Just as the man who wishes to meet the heavy excess profits "taxes adds1 a percentage 'of that tax to: his prices' withstanding the majesty of the in-jpeatedly giving warningrtfi iin order that his own income shall j function process.
