Property The problem of the orderly postwar disposal tack 111(0 piJvnte ownership of the major part of the $20,000,000,000, worth-of real estate and buddings acquired by the Fedora) Government /or the war ef/ort will be, further ..considered by the • Washington'Committee'of. the National Association' of Real Estate Boards, and the Society of Industrial Realtors in meetings to te held in Washington ,th!s week. . Bethel T. .Hunt, president of the Industrial Realtors, and -member of-.the Washington- Committee, will attend both: conferences. This problem of disposal of the properties Is one getting consideration front leading real estate experts of the country, and Mr. Hunt points out that it Is expected that the property will lie released in sucli a manner ns not to depress values : and injure business. In come'.coses the Government will be expected to take a loss, while Iti other. cases the Government will charge off only depreciation. In some^few cases (lie Government may even show n profit, as it did in the • purchase and resale of the Stevens Hotel in Chicago. Early, in-'the war the Government ^purchased-the hotel for five U'INTER Is hard on houses/par. '* ticularly on roofs.

Walking on an old roof to repair it frequently starts additional leaks, as the old warped, cupped or brillle shingles ;irc apt to crack and start Ihc nails under- fool.

Have you looked it over recently to make sure il is in sound condition'; If you have any doubts as to its soundness, call in an expert to check it over and give a report on how it will stand up under spring rains and summer sun. The time to replace a roof !s before it leaks, to avoid the damage and discomfort (hat even one small leak can cause. The first leak usually is ;i warning sijjnal that the roof is time-worn and is badly weather-beaten and requires complete rnplacinj;. Experts agree that (a. patch an old, wealher-worn roof is false economy. The only safe way to repair it is to replace it or recover it. • There are many reasons why roofs don't lend themselves to patching. The reasons vary with the type of roofing material involved. Certain facts, however, hold good for all types. In the first place, even experienced roofers have difficulty Uncling UK.. source of a leak, ns the water often runs clown the inside of the joints of Ihc roof boards, before onierginton the interior, farfrom Ihe source. And some leaks even visible" one is the most dangerous. Unseen water may run dowr the inside of the roof structure inlo the walls of the house where it can do an immense amount ol damage before peeling paint 01 falling plaster let's you know that the roof lias losl its "fii;hl.' Fortunately, there is no short- .%'c of good roofing materials foi necessary replacement. For example, asphalt shingles are still available for necessary rc-raofinp and can be laid right over the old roof (except slate and tile) tc help hold in the heat while thej fight off the weather. Asphal! shingles luive the advantage 0! being'highly resislant to fire, ir addition to providing long, care free life. They should be applicc wlien the old roof shows Ihe firs! sign o( failure. Make ildo for Ihe duration maj mean a new roof, but nothing ir the house will be safe if the roo leaks or is flammable. - <» O'Bryant Buys Five-Room House Other Real Estate Deals Arc Completed Here During Week The largest real estate transaction reported this week was the sale of the Harold Sclincc home at 1521 West Chlckasawba street to Pal O'Brynnl for approximately $0000.
