As a responsible element of (he building industry, we are fo- licitous for the welfare of that industry, which plays such a vital role in the national economy. We well know the demands now being mruic on the building industry, which are certain to increase for some years (o conic, will require n far greater number of skilled- workers than are nt present available. "We consider that the Apprentice TrahiiHB Service of the T>?.- IW-tmcnt of Labor has rendered • it, rendering nil Invaluable Hice to the country in setting I lie pattern for, and assisting the augmentation or, apprentice train- iiiR in the building trades. We also believe that the program of the Department in this respect represents a real accomplishment.

At present more than 500 cities have building cartes in preparation or under study. '. T'l*,' Disastrous fires during the past year have turned public attention |J the necessity for revision -of ' m a n y municipalities' building n.-Jes. These fires, which took heavy toll or lives and property, showed that it is not enough lor n city to ndopl a building code to < I'tain safety from fire. The code must be made retroactive nnd must •" properly administered. Cities Need Codes "It should be the responsibility ot Pvery city in America to enact n modern up-to-date building code and make provisions for its strict enforcement," says a bulletin from the National Board of Fire Underwriters. "To do this, the first step to be taken by n municipality is to appoint a building code committee, such a committee can expedite Its work by using the Recommended code nf tlie. National Board or Fire Underwriters a s a guide. For towns and smaller cities, n sliort- f ed form of this code has been .'pnred. "Using this Recommended Code as a basis, the committee can readily make comparisons w ith cxistins Storage capacity or closets can often be increased 100 per cent by simple remodeling., It also makes the clothing m uc h easier to reach and put away.

(UP)—Buildings on one side of Main street "were dynamited yesterday to check a fire which destroyed three fourths of (his tim- coastal town. •A telephone operator reported that the 'buildings were blasted when it appeared that the entire town would-be engulfed by the flames. The operator, a Mrs Bin"- ston, said that the buildings w hi:h were net blown up were scorched by tile fire and their windows partition and substitute double- doors in the opening.
