This means a normal i (/placement of 6'1!50 housing units in any one year. At a low valuation of $1000 per house, $t>.L'f>0.1)00 would be- needed '.c maintain the normal muuher of livable houses. Fur each new house built, at Uiast- 10 existing houses should b<- vc.mocielecl. Mr. Carter said. If only $',400 were spent on G'2,500 hotis- (s. i hi- remodeling bill would be SI 8,750.000. Tlie housing survey made by the college and the Department of Agriculture indicated thai more Shan nine out of 10 rural houses in the state were without electricity, :-!umbing. water supply and sewage disposal. Storage closets found in only 25 per cent of farm homes. The structural condition index for Arkansas farm houses wa.s 25. on the basis of 100 lor "good" condition. Thus, in three out of four cases, there was. r.c-ed for remodeling, repair or new construction of screens. paint, walls, floors, ceilings, foundations, roofs and other .structural parts. Should Rt'buiUl Many Mr Carter said thai the college recently analyzed 1'J houses for remodeling. Only one of the houses was more thau.,20 years old. they \vere all reasonably well built, had been painted regularly, and had received normal repairs. Yet a contractor's estimate for providing bathroom space, kitchen storage cabinets, sanitary plumbing, interior decoration and a small amount of structural change, wa.s 5600. Since the census valuation of Arkansas houses is less than $400 per house, it i.s certain that many milu> are not worth remodeling, and should be rebuilt. Mr. Cnrier pointed out. douse ri I.

Properly insulated walls and I :uld materially to both ! Suiumvr and Winter comfort and in severe climates often assist in obtaim'ni' reduced hcatint; costs. Insulating nuiteriols on Ihc market tod si y may be divided into four classifications. Flexible insulation is made in batt or blanket form and Ls placed between joists, rafters, or studs. Fill insulation i.s of a fiber or {granular nature and may be used to insulate walls and ceilings of existing as well as new buildings. Rigid insulation or board insulation is applied over structural members, cun be used as wait and roof sheathing and often for into- ,j lc . rior wall and ceiling finish. Each of these three types arc composed of a larye number of minute air spaces which resist Uu> transmission of heat. The fourth type, made of metal, is known as reflective insulation. This type, ns the name implies, depends on the reflection of radiated heat for results and is used in conjunction with air spaces, Experience has proven that ench of thc,sc types are effective..
