QUESTIONNAIRE ANSWERS WHICH WILL SOLVE PERPLEXING v PROBLEMS OF THIS RECONSTRUCTION ERA. I 11'- "'Hit I , . , ... 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. ft Bill -'MM. lli1' ifv&r mmmmm 1E !Y:I sonaUlement does noting K .n-unsacuons.

Does it really PAY to paint a house refularly, say, every three or four years? 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. PRETTY COLOR COMBINATIONS.
