S. Government Planned. WASHINGTON, D, C. April 4.-Enactment ot the last session of congress of the Wagner bill for the advance planning and regulation of public construction has placed in the hands of the president of the United States a sure means of maintaining' general business stability in the future, officials of the Asso- ciated.General Contractors of America declared here at the session of its newly inducted executive cabinet. With a six-year advance plan of public construction laid down in de' tail, as required by the new law, several billion dollars worth of business, will always be in reserve to be thrown into the breach as needed when business begins to*lag, the contractors pointed out. ' Used As Balance Wheel. "The theory of using the construction industry as a business balancs wheel--of accelerating this work in times of depression--has been generally accepted for more than a decade," A. P. Greensf elder, of St Louis, president of the association explained,- "but the available means of acceleration heretofore have been too slow to be entirely effective." In the past,' he said, it has re quired months of preparation be fore any great amount of additiona government construction could be brot to the job stage and under these conditions the best that coul be hoped was./ that acceleration might pull the country out of a depression which, slow pick-up had prevented it from avoiding. Under the six-year advance planning, however, a sagacious and well-advised chief executive, with the co-operation of congress, will be able to apply the necessary stimulus before the slowing down of business is generally appreciated, Greensfelder said. Now In 18 States. Members of Mr. Greensfelder's cabinet also pointed out that, following the example of.: the federal government, the establishment of similar advance planning procedure is expected to be provided for in. 18 states by the present legislative sessions. They also believe that advance planning of private construction will be given greater consideration than in the past. Members attending the . meeting, which will be continued" today, include in addition to. President Greensf elder; A. E, Horst, Philadelphia^ Col. George B. Walbridge, Detroit; Alan Jay Parrish, Paris, 111.; David J. White, Boston; Richard Hopkins, Albany, N.'Y.; Thomas J. Baker, Milwaukee;-Burl L. Kriowlea, Worchester, Mass., all nationally known general contractors; and Edward J. Harding, Washington, managing director of the association. ARGENTINES TO HOLD ELECTION Since Revolution. Province of Buenos Aires to Vote for First Time BUENOS AIRES, April' 4. -Argentines will make their first trips to the polls since the revolution tomorrow. The election will be held only in the province of Buenos Aires to fill the provincial offices and elect deputies, to the as yet unorganized national congress. Other provinces will have elections later and a presidential election will come still later. The race for the provincial governorship looks like a trial heat for the presidency of the republic. The radicals, who held power in the province from 1916 until the revolution of last September, have nominated for the' governorship Honorlo Peueyrredon, former ambassador in Washington, and Carlo Guido for vice governor. The conservative party .ticket is headed by Antonio Santamarina Celedohio V. Pereda is the conservai live candidate for vice governor. Absorbing interest 'Surrounds the contest, as It is expected to give the first definite indication, of which way the wind blows in post-revolutionary party politics. $10,000 Gain 'Is Reported. MT.

BUTLDER HIQIIT~ : The bungalow shown above started as a summer lake home The owner liked it so well he decided to make it an all-year home To do that he excavated a partial cellar, installed a small warm air heater, and lined the interior walls with insulating board, instead of lath and plaster. The complete house'cost but $2,500. The original plan had 'a living: room across the front, and one bedroom. For those who require .two bedrooms an alternate plan has been developed, with the living room running- lengthwise, the big front porch cut to half Its size, and two bedrooms and bath on the side. Both plans are furnished. Both plans provide closet room for roll-away beds, so the living room can be turned into sleeping quarters for an occasional guest. Developed for small city apartments, the folding or rolling bed has proved so practical that thou- ands of small Jfomes are using ne type or the other to save the 500 to $1,000 that an extra bed- oom would cost. The construction shown is frame and siding. Shingles may be sub- tituted for- the siding, if desired. Tn the'original plan the big porch cross the front is screened in ummer and equipped with glazed windows in winter, so it becomes an all-year addition to the living oom. The latter is of unusual size, and with its broad window seat and jookcases, big rock fireplace and ;enerous windows it Is a charming ·oom in which to live. The projecting dining^porch, with vindows on three sides, . can be equipped with removable windows o be replaced by screens in summer, or with casement windows, ;lving the maximum of ventilation. There's a kitchen of average size, a roomy rear porch, and other conveniences. To get an exact estimate of the cost to build I have prepared for you a one-sheet blueprint, giving all the information your contractor Much New Equipment Added to New Hampton Light and Water Plant NEW HAMPTON, April 4.--More than $30,000 in new equipment and buildings were added to the New Hampton Municipal Light and Water plant during 1930, according to figures released by F.
