IS Saturday evening dance Stevens ponds 10-tf TO SURVEY SEASONAL CONSTRUCTION WORK Department of Commerce Seeks Mean* of Spreading Building Over Entire Year. Savings, not only to the building industry and its workers, but to tho public generally aro expected to result from tho activities of a committee on seasonal operation In construction industries, the appolntmont ot which by Herbert Hoover, chairman of the President's Conference of Unemployment, has Just been announced by the Department of Commerce. This saving should be reflected In lowor relative cost ot dwellings and other buildings. Tho members of the committee aro: Ernest T. Trigg, manufacturer, of Philadelphia, 1'a., chairman • John W. Blodgott, manufacturer, of Grand Rapids, Mich.; John Donlln, President, Building Trades Dept., American Fod- dratlon ot Labor, Washington, D C; IJ. V. Bpplch, President, National Assn. of Heal Estate Boards, Denver, Col.: A, P. Greonafelder, contractor, St. Louis, Mo.; John M. Dries. Depart­ ment of Commerce, Washington. ]>. C; Otto T. Mallery, public works expert, ot Philadelphia, .Pa. 1 , Rudolph P. Mlllor, engineer, of New York; James P. <Nuonnn, President, Brotherhood of Electrical [Workers, Washington. D. C; William Stanley Parker, architect, of Boston, Mass.; and ISd- ward Byre Hunt, secretary. Mr. Trigg, as chairman, has called a meeting of tho committee tor July 10 and 11 to lay plans tor a thorough study ot tho tacts. Previous survoys have indlvalcd that most construction activity Is concentrated in seven to ten months of the year, which means that building trades workers can not find work In their trade durlug sevoral mouths, and that contractors' organizations and equipment, architects, engineers, building material producers, and others connected with construction, must usually remain idle for similar periods. This idle time represents waste, and direct lossua to tho construction Industries themselves, thoir workers, and tho public. Tho committee was formed in tho hope thafby examining tho facts and proposed remedies, it might be able to suggest sound solutions, and obtain general co-operation in effecting them. It is the general impression that seasonal 'building has boon duo perhaps more to custom than to weather, and It Is expected that tho investigation will throw light on this and other important points.
