EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE TUESDAY, APRIL 3, 1934 PROVIDES MODERN HOME EQUIPMENT Residential construction in the years 1921-29 went forward not in the large cities alone, as seems to be generally believed, but ;n the towns, villages and rural sections of the nation. Unlike public works activities, it was performed in countless small projects, forming an unmeasured but potent force for employment and business activity. Pennsylvania alone employs 133,000 persons in manufactures for construction. Other leading states, each with over 50,000 employed, are Ohio,' New York and Illinois.

E. R. W. Willis, Mgr. Phone 955 300,000 Prospective Small Home Builders in Evidence, Claim A need for new homes on the part of 300,000 bona fide and nonspeculative p r o s p e c tivia builders of small houses, whose projects are being held up only by lack of adequate financing, is indicated in a survey recently conducted by the National Lumber Manufacturers association. Also, awaiting moderate and conservative financial aid are projects involving 256,000 farm buildings and 35,000 small business structures--not to mention remodeling and repair jobs without number. This surprising informatiqn comes from retail lumber dealers scattered throughout 883 counties in 48 states. Seventy- three per cent of those reporting declare that no first mortgage money is to be had in their trade territories, while 18 per cent report a limited amount available for loans varying from 20 per cent to 50 per cent of a conservative appraisal. Only 6 per cent, however, admit the ready availability of adequate first mortgage funds, while a meager eight-tenths of 1 per cent find it possible to get second mortgage loans from dealer-organized. mortgage companies. Dealers in 124 counties report no lending institutions of any nature. Revival of Home Building Important That a revival of home building would have much greater effect on the economic system of the nation than public works can possibly have, is the belief of leaders in the building trade. For the building of homes means the establishing of a better standard of living and the increased use of the products of many American industries. Currie-Van Ness Urges Efficiency Eefrigerator and Gas Kange Add to Comfort. The finishing touches to a home often are the qualities which contribute "most to the comfort and efficiency of a home. This is true in the way of modern equipment as well as the interior, exterior and lawn. A Westinghouse refrigerator, sold by Currie-Van Ness company, provides' satisfaction to the entire family as well as the housewife, for not only is it perfect in all phases of refrigeration but has qualities of beauty and comfort. Also, contributing to the efficiency of the household are the modern Universal gas ranges, offered by the Currie-Van Ness company.

This equipment is portable, can be transferred from one house to another, the owner being assured that it will fit in well for utility and beauty with the surroundings and involve no work to keep neat and efficient. The Currie-Van Ness company is anticipating one of its largest seasons in the sale of outside paints this year.
