Decause the fair was omitted in 1924 the hew manager A. E. Lawson adopted the policy of putting all available funds into the promotion of this year's fair as he most effective method of placing the fair on the sound basis necessary for further permanent improvements. Premiums for the educational departments were . increased all along the. line, and the total in awards for all departments is ap proximately (25,000. At the same time it was determined to put on the best possible entertainment program and $20,000 is to be spent for the grandstand attrac tions. ! ! The response to the attractive offerings has been, marked. On August 10. nine counties, including the 'largest producers of the state, had entered exhibits in the country competition. Several more were planning etxhlbits, and competition will be keen for the $100 per county to be pro rated on the basis of comparative scores. In the boys and girls club division, for which about $400 had been offered previously, a total of $1,200 in premiums and awards is being offered this year.

' - ' j An oil extracted from locusts is being used to lubricate watches in South Africa. HOLLYWOOD. Cal. Varied types are Included in .the many thousands of men, women and youths who come here each year seeking careers in the motion pic tures. Few ever reach stardom. Estimates compiled recently revealed that since 191? more than 150,000 persons registered with screen employment agencies on the Pacific coast. Today the list of those steadily employed numbers little more than 15,000. Therefore, some 135.000 failed to find a footing on the stepping-stone to clnemaland. Statistics obtained from film la bor bureaus here and in Los An geles show that 300 bald-beaded men, whose principal bid ror screen fame is their lack of hair. and 100 one-legged men, who be lieve that they should be in pic tares because they have but one limb, are registered. On the files of these agencies are listen ten cross-eyed men, 50 athletes, 200 professional and non professional gamblers, 12 midgets, glass eaters and sword swallowers. So great is the desire of per sons to get into tbe pictures that in an hour's time counterparts of all famous men of the past. enough cowboys to stage a rodeo or sailors sufficient to man a ship can be brought together. In a day's time 5,000 persons for a mob scene or 1,200 women for a ballroom can be assembled. They bring their own costumes. The wage scale at a majority of tbe studtos is similar. Extras for mob scenes, who are taken irre spective of age, size, or nation amy, receive an average or $3 a day. Hand picked extras of approximately the same size, similar features and color of eyes are paid $5. Character extras, those who are "camera wise" including win pome misses and young men who possess complete wardrobes, are paid $7.50 a day. Young women in afternoon and evening gowns. capable of giving proper atmos phere to gatherings of the elite. are given $10. A scrubwoman si paid $7.50 for a few minutes work before the camera. A stunt man Is paid) $1,500 to drive a motorcycle at! forty-five miles -an hour into a racing car. Swimmers are given $100 to dive 100 feet into the sea and'a rider $400 to "fall" a horse over a cliff Into a mountain stream. An ex-prize fighter earns from $50 to $100 to give and take, bare-tlsted. in a scrap of a few minutes duration and a juggler receives aa high as $200 for showing his tricks In a circus side-show scene. Sixty per cent of the thousands of persons registered at the film employment offices are women. The greatest number of an indi vidual group are girls and young women seeking employment in ballroom scenes and similar work. Many girls who are listed possess wardrobes as elaborate as any owned by a millionaire's daughter. Catholic Parish School Work Is Well Under Way Work on the new Catholic par ish school in North Salem is progressing rapidly and the interior Is nearly ready for the plasterers. The structure is on story with basement, and will be ready for the fall term of school next montb.

Ml HERE has been much discussion about the economy of building the square house over the L-shaped house, and there is little doubt that the square house can be built more economically. But when the L-shaped house is well planned the difference in cost is not excessive, and many home-builders gladly pay the difference to get the advantages which the reshaped house offers.' j . The house above-illustrated has these features. Notice how the living room and dining room and two of the bedrooms on tha second floor have windows on three sides, thus assuring, plenty of sunlight and free circulation of air throughout the house. The cheerfulness imparted by such an arrangement is difficult to measure in dollars and cents. . . , Comfort, convenience and attractiveness one wants in his home, and it is always well in, planning a house to bear in mind that a few hundred dollars well spent in getting what one wants may he returned many times oyer. Economy and skimping are two entirely dif ferent matters. Many things in connection with building that seem economical at the start turn out costly, and many things we think we cannot afford turn out to be the most economical. i The'eirjerience of the nast is teaching many "home-buiiders that first cost is not the vital consideration in building, but that slow depreciation, low repair bills, lower insurance rates and reduced fuel bills really decide the soundness of the home-building investment. ! A11 this is a bit beside a discussion of this particular house, but we shall not see a very great improvement in American homes until the American people learn the fundamentals of-home-building economies. . . ' The architects of this house have combined a pleasing and interesting exterior with a well-. planned interior. The decorative treatment of the corners, windows and doorway all add to the charm of the face brick walls, while the mass of the house is in flood scale and proportion. The rooms oh both floors are comfortably large and conveniently arranged, .The overall 'dimensions of the house are 32 feet by 38 feet. HOUSES BUILT OF PERMANENT MATERIALS COST BUT LITTLE MORE THAN THOSE CONSTRUCTED OF. MORE TEMPORARY MATERIALS But the Upkeep Expense of Such Houses Is Small See us for common brick, face brick, building tile,4 partition tile, silo tile, drain tile, - . vertrified sewer pipe. .
