These subdivision conferences ill i>e conducted by Seward H. vloll. chief of the land-planning rction of the Housing Administra- lon, who will outline I'ne needs nd requirements of such projects. : will be Ihe purpose of Ihe pro- sram to show the need of decent mil attractive sites for modest ivcllings and to give practical .sug- icslions as to how they may be irofllably created. Mr. Molt will itilizc a model low-priced homj iiilxlivislon in Viis talks to builders md others. Tile first conference was held ate in July in Detroit. Other con-' cicnces have been scheduled for .uccessive Mondays in Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, D. C. Ten- nllve plans call for two additional inferences in Newark, N. J., ah<l iioslon, Mass. "The creation of desirable resi- lenlinl communities 'has a much reatcr signiri'cttiice llian simply .lie ]>roviding ot a decent home ile," said Mr. Moll. "Growth an:l :liaracler of our cilies is absolutely :onlrolled by the manner In which ubdivisions are developed. A bad- y planned street layout or the lack >f control of land use in n single ubitlvision can create traffic and ocial problems t'nat throttle n vhole section of a city with losses 'f millions of dollars lo home uvners and investors. "It is because of Ihe tremendous (Tcct that subdivision development ms on rcM-csUiMi values that the 'ederal Housing , Administration nsuresoio loans in new or partially levelopert subdivisions until they lave'been reviewed nn:l approved.' 1 Subjects iiiat will he discussed at he subdivision conferences include •jVJsraphy, soil, drainage, trans- •So/Jntlon, sewers and water, lol •Jiapes, parks and playgrounds, •treet patterns, shopping nnd com- nnnity centers, and other import- nt factors attending such devel- pmenls.

The new postage may not appear before the first of next year, but already rlc- I signs have been submitted to the liing nnd plans arc being made I tcf their printing. i Australia, in fact, may beat the Fin by issuing its Kdward VIII Fjtamps even before 1037, and Bermuda may slarl a close second. Canada and Hong Kong, loo, are in the running. » « a . Various organizations hnvc nskcd the U. S. Poslofficc Department lo issue two more stamps commemorating famous persons in U. S. history, but the probability is that no action will be taken. One request is for a stamp honor- .ing Mother Elizabeth Ann Bayley Scion, founder of the order of the Sisterhood of Charily of St. Vincent <le Paul; another for one honoring the slave-born Frederick Douglass, famous Negro journalist oml orator. Collectors of Philippine stamps should add to their collections the new set o! three, commemorating the birth of Dr. Hijol, great Filipino hero.

Variety is oblained through slight architectural changes, choice of color nnd material, iiiid the manner in which the 'house is placed on the lot. The houses used in Ibis display nre from the designs of low- priced houses suggested In the Federal Housing Administration's Technical Bulletin No. 4. II is the intention of the Hous- In» Administration, to show through this exhibit of miniatures, the results possible when nil entire subdivision is planned around I'ne low- priced home. The streets are laid out In an umistml fashion, another feature which avoids the appearance of uniformity. An area in the' property is sel aside for park and recreation purposes. There is also n. shopping center, set off from the residential section by n line of poplar trees. Adcquale parking space has been provided to avoid congestion in the market place. Each lot is completely landscaped.

If the "gingerbread" can be successfully removed cxterlornlly nnd iiitcriorally the plain effect resulting is more In the present manner nnd glyes the houses a modern look. A house of this type ordinarily contains a series of small cut-up rooms. If partitions are removed the more spacious rooms are attractive and offer greater possibilities In the way of redecorating and furnishing as well as comfort. Funds for this typo of work may be obtained under the Modernization Credit Plan of the Federal Housing Administration. Atlic Space May Be Used in Ventilating If there is an attic space over Ihe second floor that can be used tor venlilaling purpose. 1 ;, place a register In the celling of the hall, preferably over the stair, and build a wooden flue over the opening nboul three feel high.

Such additions may DC mille inexpensive and will probably luld more thrm tlielr rost to Ihe value of the properly. The type of archllecture of the house will determine what sort of euclosm-e should be used. For the colonial collage a while picket fence is Ihe most appropriate, although a hedge, well trimmed, looks well agnlnst the U'liltc background of the house. These fences may be of many styles, from Just simple flat pallnigs nulled t(> H top ami bottom rail, tosciunrc or round pickets that pierce n molded top rail, with elaborate gate iHJsts. For Hie English type, or for Ihe brick Georgian, a brick wnll looks besl. These may be of any height desired; tills will be gov- erned by local conditions. If the. house Is on a busy thoroughfare and complete privacy Is wanted, a high wall may be'built to completely exclude the outside world. On a quiet street, on the olhci hand, a low wnll that docs not completely hide the house may be preferable. For a house of the- Mediterranean type, n stuccoed wall would look besl. With some types of house In this general cute- gory, the finish of the wall should be lexliucd und nil corners should be softened by rounding. There [ire many good plants for hedges and the best way lo determine which would be besl for your place Is lo consult some good nurseryman. Walls, fences, and hedges may ue financed under the Modernization Credit Plan of Ihe Fcdcrn Housing Administration. The United States stopped (coinage of Its 3-ceiit piece in 18C8.
