If economic conditions had permitted, there would now be some 400 more brick plants In California as a result of the sixth annual convention at the Common Brick Manufacturers' Association of America, which has Jut closed in Los Angeles. According to the expres sions by visiting delegates, all would have chosen tor remain per manently In California, This was the first-time the association had ever held Its national convention west of Kansas City. Brick makers from Canada and twenty-nine states of the Union came in two special trains of ten coaches each, stopping first in Sacramento, then Snit Francisco end the bay cities before proceeding to the convention city. More than 400 delegates many with their wives snd families, came In the caravan. Brick-making machinery manufacturers, architects and others connected with the industry accom panied the party to attend the session. Among the resolutions adopted by the convention was one opposing the unfair competition that is being met with In several parts of the country, from brl-k manufactured in penal Institutions. - The resolutions committee contended that, the utilization of-Such brick should be confined to state works, and. should not be introduced to the open markets and regular channels of trade. Possibly the most timely of the resolutions to Califcfrnians "is one directed at the flmsy construction that has accompanied the rapid growth of communities in this state. The most significant part of the comment by- the resolutions committee reads: "In recognizing the spirit which has made possible this greai"'ixpnsIbn""br'1eTIl5t'y;" and in paying tribute to the people Who areresponfeWe for this re- j markable manifestation of human energy, this association nevertheless is disturbed at the apparent sacrfices to safety which have been Jnade in order speedily to secure this development.
