Let Housing Adjust Itself to the Pocketbook For 30 years the development of housing in this country tins been aground on this rock: it has not been possible to build houses cheap enough for the ordinary man to be able to afford them. This mass market of houses for the average workingman with an income of. say. S1000-S1500 a year, simply has not been touched. Such building as has been achieved in the home field ha.<i been generally In tfie S5000-and-up class. Anil that market is strictly limited. Now since it has proved impossible, clue to a variety of conditions, to brfag the cost of a house down to the range fo the 51300-a-year workman, why not build as much house as is within his range, and let him finish it himself, or finish it over a period of years as he is able? The usual estimate is that a man's house should cost him not above two years' salary. Very well. Why not build for that S1300-a-year man as much house as can be bought for S2600 and let him buy it at that figure? He has a debt on which he can see some reasonable hope of paying out. He has enough house to keep out the rain. And he can always improve, finish, add to the house as opportunity offers. That is a very practical approach to the housing problem. Many a city worker -Would be glad to move into a very rudemlntary house in the country where his children could be outside and where he could raise some fruits, vegetables, and poultry for himsefl or for pocket-money. He doesn't demand tiled baths, controlled air-conditioning, built-in laundry tubs, and double windows. For the sake of getting his own home, he is willing to "rough it" for a While, gradually finishing, enlarging, and improving his place. Nearly 50 houses have been built on a plan like this near Hammond, Ind. Neat and attractive on the outside, built with all-union labor as far as they go, these houses have provided a long-sought opportunity for many plain people to whom the vision of a $5000 house was a mere mirage. Each house waa for sale at any stage of its construction at which the buyer felt he could finish it himself, the cost proportionate. Union building trade workers, though such houses did not provide them with as much work as complete houses, realized that it was work that they would otherwise not get at all. The practical side of this plan is shown by one man who after a year decided to trade his house in on a larger one. He got $300 more for the house than, he- had paid, the difference representing improvements lie had made himself. This plan deserves study in every community. If the worker's pocketbook does not match the cost of housing, the cast of housing must match the worker's pocketbook. » t t> , THE FAMILY DOCTOR) T. I*. R60. 0. S. *>AT. By DR. MORRIS FlSItBEPJ Kdftof, Journal of the American Medical AsMcta«M, Mrt M Hygcln, the Health Magazine Students Dislike Buttermilk, Beer; Leeks, A-balone. Okra Mystify Thorn The old proverb ihat you can lend n horse to water but you cannot mnke it dvink applies equally well to human beings and the- foods they eat. When relief workers tried to prepare baskets oC food for Chicago families, they found the diet has to be suited to thf> appetites :ir!cl customs of (ho persons concerned. There is no use sending Uu-pe quantities of hi-rri»n to neffl'OS because they will not i>:it the fish. The Jewish, population will not eat salt pork. T1u> Amrnu;m population i.s out strong for macaroni and speghatti. The uruble-'iH of builJiny belter nutritional habits cannot be solved merely by telling people what is best, for them. Psychologists anil nutrition experts in Western Reserve University lit Cleveland made a study of fiy;-! students in three universities to find out wliieh foods f]it'\ disliked and which ones they liked, and w!iy. The students were instructed to disn-.ynrd the matter of i.'ookiiif;. hut tu cheek the foods purely ;u; to what they were. h turned out that the most disliked foods were the nriunis of the animal body like bruin, lung, and stomach. Next came alcoholic beverage.;, (hen shell fish and .strung juice vegetables. The 10 most disliked foods in order were buttermilk, brains, beer, yin whisky, beef liver, calf's liver, oleomargarine and pnrsnips. Omitting al- colohic beverages and the organs of animals, the il) -most disliked foods were buttermilk, oleomargarine, par.s- nips. eggplant, caviar, hovuinv. oysters, turnips rutabagas and elams." Interesting also wa.s the unfamilinrity of the- collei;e students with many sub- stances sometimes lijllcd us foods were; leeks, abalone, okra, endive, chard, caviar, lentils, rtittibagns, persimmons, and brains. Some of these foods were unknown in certain sections of the country. Others had nevef familiar with a wider assortment of foods than were men, but more men wore familiar With beef liver, hrondy, gin nnd whisky than were women. Students of Western Reserve and students of the University of California. The Western Reserve students were particularly opposed to hominy, Shell fish, sole, acocndo, artichokes, and Italian squash. Broccoli was the only food more unfamiliar to California students (him to thaw of the other universities. H was interesting to find out why some of the students disliked certain food. Some refused to ent rabbit or duck because «f senliVnenta) reasons. One woinun student disliked avocado because il reminded ho rof cold cream.
