ouery. The cpver.peit ba launched
ii educational Campalrh4 to encourafce
building In order to put .more men to
work. Would not -a similar movement to
show how the old structures can be best
and most economically repaired and made
fl)od as new also help? ;
Answer. It is learned that such a
plan is in effect and is linked dlrectlj
wlth the -Washington propaganda.
Industry must be turned back from
works of war to the ways of peace.
Employment must be found,' In the
meanwhile, for those whoseY occupa
tion has been Interrupted. There is no
real surplus of labor In the United
States. Rather there Is a shortage,
which would be acute If normal condi
tions were already restored, and one
step towards restoring them, will come
frith resumption of repair work. . v ;
Government restrictions, imposed by
the necessities of , the war program,
have for many months past retarded
or altogether prevented construction,
Improvement and repairs. These re
strictions are now off, and there It
scarcely a town, a city, a factory, a
dwelling or a farm that does not reveal
a erving need for prompt attentidn.
Nothing delays such instant action ex
cept the feeling that prices are hig
for the time being and may be. lower.
That is not logical. No matter what
it costs 'to repair, the cost is less than
the cost of neglect No matter what
the cost of paint, the wind and the
weather will collect a higher bill; In
"deterioration and decay.

3 Query, What do you think of paint as
as Investment, aside from the appearance
It lends? Does it really PAY to paint a
house refularly, say, every three or four
Answer. Good paint properly ap
plied when needed Is the main thing in
making a house last long and well. A
bouse worth $2,500 can be painted at &
cost of about $125. In 60ears that
house will need .about 15 paintings,
the total cost of whlcfi wlli Se"$i,SSS."
Left without paint, such a huse .would.
fall into complete ruin in 30 drears. (So;
taking 60 years as -a basis forourj.fig-
urea we find that with'paint a'home
will last that time In good condition
and will costplus paint, $4,375. With
out paint the house would hare to be
rebuilt at the end of 30 years and
would be ready for another, complete
renovation when the sixtieth year ar
rived. Cost, without paint, $5,000 for
a home ready to fall to pieces. Does
regular .painting pay? ' . Aa the old
Dutch adage says: S' v .. -
"PAINT.PAY8 FOR ITSELF."
Query. I hare a quantity of old paint
a hand. Can I use it for the first coat In
repainting my barn?
Answer. -On no account should old
paint which has become fat be used
for priming, either old or. new, .work
Old paint In that condition Is best used
on a fence, brickwork or tinworki If
you value j'our barn sufficiently to
paint it, do it the justice of aodjob.
U. S. Invents AntURuat.-"Dpe?"T.
Incident to the war, the government
has faced the problem that has so long
proved baffling to commercial con
cerns of protecting iron and steel from
rust In an attempt to solve this fed
eral specialists have perfected various
forms of protective coatings. In this
connection it may be pertinent to ask
whether commercial uses will not' be;
found also for the so-called "dopes"
which the government has Invented to
be applied to airplane wings and which
are possessed of valuable weather-resisting
and fireproof qualities.
EFFECT OF COLOR UPON THE
DURABILITY OF PAINT.
Property owners who may have un
der consideration the ; painting of
dwellings and other structures should
remember that more durable results
are obtained when tinted-paints are
used. Permanent coloring materials
which have been ground ; by machine
into a high k grade white paint base
have the effect of preventing "chalk
ing" and . "checking," two defects
which are often observed when white
paints are used.
