"Bl ILD HOMKS FOR WOMKINO.MEX.” "My idea would be to build 4 and room cottage.s on land near a factory site, but sufficiently removed to allow for a reaaonable rent. Build homes for workingmen and they will come Kansas City. The factories will follow." And Kansas City needs more workers right now', according to M. J. Beirn, manager in Kansas City for the Ameri- ian Radiator Company, which is building building a factory at Twelfth Street and Eastern Avenue. "Kansas City is short on skilled labor," Mr. Beirn said, "Our plant, when completed, will be 1,152 feet long by 335 feet wide. We expect to have ready to begin operations by October Here is what we are facing now. With the opening of our factory we will probably probably have to bring to Kansas City between 500 and 600 men capable of doing such work as we require. We cannot find them here." A SCARCITY or .TOBBERS?
