That painting and papering interior walls, ! ceilings and floors come first with Iowa farm women, is revealed by the CWA rural housing survey conducted in 10 Iowa counties last winter. The state summary of this stucly was released by Dr. Margaret Reid of the department of economics, Iowa State college, in charge in Iowa.

The Iowa survey was conducted jointly by the home economics division and the extension service. Field Little Known. R. K.

He called attention to the fact that a number of the desired repairs and improvements could be made at little or no cost. Of 18,789 families surveyed in 10 counties, 19 per cent reported that, if they had $250 to spend, they would repair or redecorate interior walls, ceilings and floors. Seventeen per cent would have water systems. Thirteen per cent listed repair and painting of exterior walls. Bathroom equipment is next in point of demand, 10 per cent preferring this improvement.
