William Thwrbor, Patter Census Bureau Is Checking On Market for New Homes By JOSEPH D. HUTNYAN United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Census Bureau is working on a new study which is expected to provide more up-to-date information on the kinds of new homes that are being sold and the prices the customers are paying. The bureau has been on the project since January. The feeling is that it will be at least four years before enough experience is gained to draw really meaningful conclusions. In the meantime the bureau has been releasing every month the data it has been able to gather. Some of it is interesting. The study concentrates on the sales of new one-family dwellings. It found during the first six months of this year that there was no definite trend in the number of sales. Line Was Inconsistent The line seemed to jump all over the chart — up one month, down the next. It did show up strong during the spring months — good house hunting weather — Californian Is Visitor At Alexis ALEXIS — Mrs. D. Brigham of Duarte, Calif., is a house guest of Mrs. Georgia Robertson. The late Dr. Brigham and Mrs. Brigham were former Alexis residents, Dr. Brigham being pastor of Presbyterian church in 1941 to 1943. He died in 1959. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Walters of Dallas, Tex., and her sister Mrs. Eileen Hawkins of St. Louis, Mo., spent a weekend visiting Walters' father, O. A. Walters and wife. Mr. and Mrs. O. A. Walters and Rev. Daniel Driscoll were dinner guests Monday of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Salyers. Mrs. Frances Bruington returned home Sunday from Fairfield, Iowa, after visiting her daughter, Mrs. Frank McFarland and family. Mrs. Carrie Postlewaite entered Aledo Hospital Sunday for treatment and observation. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Goben of Viola entertained at a dinner Sunday in their hofe for 41st wedding anniversary of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Swanson. Others present were Alpha Chezem, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Jarboe of Seaton and Mr. and Mrs. Gary Goben and daughter of Orion. Mr. and Mrs. Chester Holsinger and family of River Forrest spent several days in their home in Alexis. Mrs. James Hussey entertained the following guests Sunday at a dinner in Nauvoo: Mr. and Mrs. Earl Carlson, Mrs. Edith Deuth, Mrs. Georgia Robertson and her house guest, Mrs. David Brigham of Duanti, Calif. but this is hardly a revelation. The statistics that got the expects a bit excited deal with the median selling prices of homes during this period. The average home sold in January at $17,000. For some reason, this figure kept creeping upward until by June the average was $18,3*0. But in another part of the study there was much less change in the median price. Throughout the first half of the year the median offering price was higher than the average paid. What does this mean? It's still anybody's guess because the study is so new. However, the variance suggests that in a lot of instances, the price showing on the sign in front of that model home was only the "asking" price. Some home buyers evidently were able to get the builder to come down. Would Be Closer If this weren't the case, the average asking price and the median selling price would be closer together. The difference in some months _ was as much as $1,400. At any rate, the new study is arousing considerable interest in the housing industry. One of the important reasons is that in the na«t none of the government or industry statistical reports concentrated on sales. The study eventually will try to determine the price range of the homes that are selling, and the prices of those that are piling up because the customers aren't interested. Such data will be extremely valuable to both industry and government. It will help homebuilders and suppliers better plan their programs in the months ahead. The information also will aid the government in determining where its mortgage credit policies should be revised to better fit the market need. District Deputy Tells Plans for County Convention Miss Isabel Phelan of Davenport, Iowa, district deputy, was welcomed when members of Woodbine Camp, Royal Neighbors of America, convened at 7:30 o'clock Tuesday evening in IOOF Hall.

News toi and About Women Present Book" (Continued from page 3) Farm Wives Can Help Reduce Accidents URBANA - Wives of Illinois farmers can help their husbands through the fall harvest season with less chance of accident by encouraging mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks, says O. L. Hogsett, extension safety specialist at the University of Illinois. The best way to stop a busy farmer is to tempt him with some refreshments, a cool or hot drink and some cookies or cake. Records show that a distinct peak in farm accidents comes at about 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day. With several hours of hard work already behind him and quitting time still a long way off, a farmer tends to become careless and may actually be lulled into an accident. The little time lost for a break can easily be paid for it an alert operator prevents an accident.

But be sure they watch from a safe distance, says O. L. Hogsett, extension safety specialist at the University of Illinois. Many moving gears, belts and shafts can't be shielded practically, and every exposed moving part invites injury to children playing near by. It's particularly dangerous to let children ride on pickers or tractors even with an adult. Running a picker, and doing it correctly, leaves no time to watch curious youngsters. If your children want to feel that they have a part in the corn harvest, let them go with you when you take lunch to the field. Reports to Auxiliary Mrs. F. C. Healey reported on the recent circuit meeting in Chicago at this week's meeting of the GIA Auxiliary at the American Legion Home. Mrs. C.W. Westerdale, president, presided.
