Cotton Houses Are Seen For South In The Near Future Cotton Building Fabric Give* Promise As New Outlet For Product Washington, D. C.? Houses built from cotton are a dream which may come true on a large scale in the not far-distant future, the National Cot ton Council revealed recently in re viewing experimental work conduct ed with cotton building fabrics. Department of Agriculture experi ments m cotton house building in the South have shown that cotton cov erings may be used successfully on both interior and exterior walls as well as for roofing. Experiments are also being made with cotton insula tion material. "Cotton construction lends itself to prefabrication and mass-production, it is aesthetically pleasing, and it produces houses of neat and color ful appearance," a department of agriculture spokesman reports. '"ITie houses are also highly fire-resistant; and last, but far from least from the Southern point of view, cotton houses could provide an outlet for a consid erable quantity of the present bur densome surplus. We can hope to see the day when the South can be hous ed in buildings made of material grown on its own farms."

Local Dod^e Dealer Back From Meeting ^ith Recent News Bringing with him the information that the country's motor vehicle sales were greater for January. 1940. than in any January in automobile his tory?with still incomplete February records likely to show that more new cars and trucks were sold in the sec ond month of the year than in any previous February?bar none?Mr. William Everett, of the local Dodge firm, Dixie Motors, Inc., has just re turned from Raleigh where he par cipated in a meeting called by the Dodge Division of Chrysler Corpor ation and attended by Dodge deal ers of many other cities as well by factory sales executives. "I was greatly impressed," said Mr. Everett, on his return, "by re ports read at the meeting, of large numbers of orders for new Dodge cars that were being booked by deal ers in all sections of the country. Dealers with whom I compared ex periences were generally agreed that the number of people who will ex change the cars they now operate for 1940 models will be much greater proportionately than in former sea sons. "The reasons for this decidedly favorable indication are found in the general economic upswung as well as in the fact that the impressive beau ty of our 1940 Luxury Liner does much to increase the new-car buying urge. "Dealers at the meeting were sur prised at being introduced to two unusually interesting new Dodge models?one a gorgeously appointed four-door sedan called the "Dodge Hollywood Model," the other a smart Convertible coupe with a top that is raised or lowered by the power of the engine. ? ? ?
