It is generally not conv^" ient to make the piles in tier* J, than 6 or 7 sacks high S m ° re If higher piles are Used ,. sacks should be placed as head • and stretchei-s, that is alternate! 3 lengthwise and crosswise, So a </i y tie the piles together and lessen the danger of piles overturning Because of the possibility f some moisture coming through o condensing on the exterior wall's of the storage building, it i s ad visable not to place sacks directlv against the outside walls. Instead maintain a continuous space be~ tween the walls and sack piles Exclude Air Finally, in order to reduce air contact with the exposed tops and sides of sack piles and to guard against any possible roof leakage it is recommended that the tops and sides of all piles be covered with tarpaulins, waterproof paper weighted down to insure tight contact with the piles, or other similar covering. Once the cement has bee-n properly stored, it should not be dis~ turbed until it is to be used. Cement when used should fc e free flowing and completely f ree from lumps. Sometimes cement in the lower sacks of large piles assume a "warehouse pack," that is it appears to be hardened. This condition is minimized by limiting the height of piles. If the "warehouse pack" does develop, it usually can be broken up by rolling the sack on the floor. Presence of lumps which cannot be pulverized readily in the hand indicates that moisture ? S i^ ee u n absorbt *l- Such cement should be screened to remove the lumps. All doors and window openings m the storage space should be kept tightly closed except when it is necessary to open them for removal of the stored cement Remove the oldest sacks first. Cycling Made Easy by Farm Inventor Perry, Okla., (U.R)—A Noble county farmer who got tired of running after his 5-year-old son while the boy learned to ride a bicycle has patented a device to meet the situation, Max Groom, the inventor, calls it a "bicycle stabilizer." It is attached, easily, to any bicycle and puts a wheel on either side below the pedals. ' Groom thinks his invention will be of particular help to semi- invalids, too, and is so pleased with it he's learned to ride a bicycle himself for the first time in his life. Break for Prisoners Tacoma, Wash., (U.R)—Prisoners at the city jail couldn't believe their eyes when 78 pints of ice cream were distributed with the compliments of the police department. It turned out that the chief had not become a father. The ice cream was found on the highway where it had apparently fallen irom a delivery truck. The finder brought it to police headquarters, where it was consumed "in a welting condition." emmi Illlll:.! TMPYU T rt ;-. IN uw LOOK— The Neil Garrisons 906 4th *w i -, , mporary housing.

The substitution of metal wall (filled with fireproof insulation) for masonry walls, is expected no only to effect notable economies reflected in lower bids for the construction contract itself, bu will actually add approximately $24,000 a year to the operating profit of each building—at present rental rates.

E. ason City* la. , specifies a minimal wall thickness Metal walls have been usec previously but the code required that the metal spandrels and mullions be backed with masonry not for structural strength, but for fire-proofing. The new code requires only that the wall be able to withstand a standard two-houi fire test and a wind load equa to 30 pounds per square foot without undue deflection. The newly designed wall units meet these re quirements fully. More Rentable Area But they have an over-all thickness of four or five inches ii comparison with the nine-inch minimum for masonry walls The four-inch saving in wall thicknes; means the addition of one-third of a square foot to the rentable area for each lineal foot of wall. Since rents in air conditioned office buildings in New York City now run from $5 to S7 per square foot per year, this additional floor space means an addition of about $2 per lineal foot of exterior wal' per year, or in a 20-story building, about $40 more profit per lineal foot of exterior wal]. The two buildings for which the use of these spandrel walls is now being considered have about 600-foot perimeters. Hence the annual increase in profit with the modern walls would be about $24,000 for each structure.

WE MAKE IT f'H (394 Building of Today More Comfortable Today's houses and other buildings are more comfortable anc more convenient and better suitec to their functions than those of any other period in history, Melvin H. Baker, chairman of the Construction Industry Information committee, stated Saturday. "At the same time, these improvements mean that the new buildings of today are much more complicated in structure, more elaborately equipped, and inherently more expensive to build' Mr. Baker said. Have High Standard 'The constantly improving character of our modern buildings from houses to factories, reflects the rising Hying standards anc more discriminatory demands of the American people. Comfort was formerly a luxury in almost any type of building. A king of old was far less comfortable in his palace than an average American family today, even though many servants performed endless chores to overcome the inconvenience and discomforts. "Today, it is the house itself that performs. The modern house is designated to save labor and steps, to keep out dirt and dust cold and heat, to have controlled temperatures and good ventilation. 'The ordinary new house has at least one complete modern bathroom installed, a central heating plant, stove, refrigerator, and kitchen cabinets installed. Its rooms, closets, storage space, and mechanical equipment are carefully designed for what is sometimes called household engineering,' and it has_ many other features contributing to comfort, convenience, and usefulness.
