NEW HOME BY BETTER HOMES NEAR END Industrial Worksheet Nationally Adopted W. H. Daum, chairman of the industrial division of the California Real Estate Association, indicates "a hearty reception of the industrial work sheet promulgated' at M"th Realtors' State Industrial Con- 4 ' - t. ninAl,,An a. ntil.b. nlng of "industrial mindedness" on. the Dart of local boards that hud previously given little or no thought to tne industrial possium-tiea of their communities. Correspondence with and questions from local boards show that the subject- is interesting, though the smaller communities are Inclined to consider town and agri cultural properties as their sole basis of activity. To such, Daum makes the assertion that: "The Industrialized East and Middle West, where there Is hardly village or hamlet .without ltd thriving Industry or " production pinnt. Is to be regarded as the California objective. If you will study focal conditions you will almost in-vnriablv find some one or more things to manufacture to whlerf tho town is peculairly adapted, ither through climatic conditions power, labor or the availability of some natural resource. Th local realtor, by his initiative and activity, can stimulate the development of such opportunities, and thereby increase his income from sales to new population as well as prove himself a producer of prosperity. Instead of a dependent on th vicissitudes of his neighbors." RADIO SLOT MACHINE. Th radio slot machine to hero.
