Sure, wartime shortages held expansion back in some places, but there arc .still a few people who don't have electricity. Sooo — "Tear it all down and start something else!

Just about as much a« the theory (hat you need to blow lip a house to put on a bigger porch. The American way is a good way of life —the best in ihe world.
