Forests Not * Uncommon AP Newsfeatures Buffalo, Wyo. —Petrified forests are not uncommon, but it's unusual to find one where the ossified trunks of the trees still stand un- right. F Large numbers of standing petrified tree stumps, some of -them 12 to 15 feet in diameter and 12 feet fc mgn, have been found on several wniPh ridges 10 miles east of Buffalo tied the trees as having been of the Sequoia family, similar to the Redwoods in northern California. The stony stumps are believed to be at least 120,000,000 years old. One has been a landmark for years. Early day cowboys used it as a hitching post without realizing, they were making use of a netri- fied tree trunk 12 ieet high" and five feet in diameter. The tree was located near an old roundup corral. Standing on a high knoll, it has been gradually uncovered by erosion. Millions of tons of petrified wood in addition to the standing stumps are to be found in the forest which is a little more than 100 miles west of Wyoming's Famous Devil Tower National Monument. . o Ja ,mes D.

Miami Has Novel Plan of Construction By GENE PLOWDEN AP Newsfeatures Miami. Fla. —A novel method of house assembly here is helping to keep Miami at the top of the list in postwar home Construction. In developing Essex Village in suburban Hialeah, Thomas P. Coogan, regional vice president of the National Association of Home Builders and president of the Florida Home Builders Association, has put his assembly ideas into mass production that has been yielding an average of two homes completed daily. The $7,000,000 development will include 600 homes, 70 two-family houses and 112 apartment units, the latter for rental. There also will be a $400,000 community shopping center to meet the needs of the 3,000 persons who will reside in the development. Carpenters on' this job don't need a saw, a square or a rule. They are strictly hammer-and-nail men. All the sawing and measuring is done m an assembly yard, where power equipment turns out the lumber needed with a minimum of labor and a maximum of speed. The procedure is not pre-fa'oica- tion, but it employs similar •timesaving principles.. After the home buyer has chosen from one of the nine home designs, the four walls are put together in the assembly i'ard, so that no. adjustments or trimmings are necessary. As each wall is completed, it is hoisted on to the side of a truck. When four walls arc aboard, off the truck goes to the site. The concrete foundation has been poured and has hardened. Next the rafters go in, and the roofers follow. The exact amount of lumber required for partitioning has been delivered, cut to measure. The gables, too, are pre-assembled and delivered complete. Financed through FHA and G.I loans to veterans, the dwelling sell for $8,700 for two-bedroom homes and $7,500 for three-bedroom units. Veterans are able to buy the houses, including refrigerator, stove and hot water heater, without a down payment. Almost 200 homes are now occupied, and 250 more on the construction schedule are spoken for. G. W.
