From The Files of The News STANDARD SIZES of buildin arc and materials Tii-j,'iniC upon lux-iun.'ci.-, engineers contractors that they onler inalerials in standard sixes. Tlie-y say it will greatly 7'ccliico costs, livery saving will be 'advisable for a long periud at'U-r the war. Stanchirtl sixes avoid waste of lumber and other materials which are cut on the job. They also make it easier to handle such products as brick, tile, metal do'urs and windows. These latter are made with less waste, moved in standardized transportation units and set up more easily on the job. Time lost in fitting one material with another is reduced to a minimum. This pl« n - called by builders tho 'vmo- dnle"-or •'modular" system, is a sort of compromise -between the old method of doiri'.i- everything individually and the modern idea of prefabrication, which many people think will make houses too much alike. Using one unit of measurement for all materials permits easy construction, but allows infinite variety. It . soiinds'like good sense. POST-WAR MONEY m re- money Thore is welcome reassurance ports from the .Bretlon Woods conference, in Xew Hampshire, that "'whatever plans are adopted will rest on H gold basis. Thus silver will continue t" be merely a convenient subsidiary metal, not in itself determining values. ; It is expected that there will be no devaluation of the basic gold in this country, and that such devaluation as may occur in foreign countries will be subject to consultation with the American conference. Such assumptions are not binding, but are expected to exert a good influence for the cooperation of foreign countries whose money and credit nre weaker than ours. The United States government is obviously in a good position to uphold a sound currency plan, been use ol' the laike quantity of gold in the national treasury, and also because of its economic power in general. It will support in- • ternatiorial currency sta.bili/.ation, but obviously cannot afford to assume more than its proper share of the burden. GETTING OUT OF A CAR A motorist steps out ol' his car to fix a flat tire. The car is close to the curb and the (.ire job is on the left side. AVhile he is fixing his tire another motorist may run into him from behind. This happens rather frequently where there is much traffic;. But it is understandable. But what about the motorist who; driving up to the curb and stopping, blithely jumps out on the other side, toward the traffic, and then walks forward, around the curb, without, looking behind him? A good rmmy nccideiits result from such carelessness, all of them uniieces- sa ry. It seems nowadays that people more and more get out on the left, when there is nobody sitting on the right side and it is the natural thing to get out on that side. Anybody who does so should walk warily. It is neither sensible for the driver nor fair to other motorists, coming along in the rear. Jt is reported from Moscow that the Germans shudder as they face "the .horrible specter of the Reds dosing in upon the Reich." 0; K.-f,et 'cm shudder. 20 Years Ago, DO YOU REMEMBER?—Thursday, July 20 .. ...

Now the same purpose can be achieved by tagging along with, a President or Prime Minister. he desired a renomination. Such had been the responsibility of the office— so oppressive had he found its cares, so terrible its perplexities— that he felt as though th^e- moment he could relinquish the burden and retire to private life- would be the sweetest he could possibly experience. But, lie said; he would not, deny that a reelection would, also have its gratification to his feelings. He did not seek it, nor would he do so; he did' not desii-c it for any ambitious or selfflsh purpose; but, after the crisis the country was passing. through under his Presidency, and- the efforts he had made conscientiously to discharge the duties imposed upon him, it would be a very sweet satisfaction to him to : know that he had secured the approval of his fellow citizens and you read about the troubles that "peace has given Italy.
