to try to adopt aa ordinance providing
for the itmoil of buildings which bate

In tha nest ordinance, which will be
aent to the Council In a few days by
Commissioner llea. a special effort
to. made to overcome tha legal objec
tlona which were raised to the last

preloue measures waa the provision
regarding atelermtnation of deteriora
tion. Tha method of determining de
preciation waa not eiplicit enough, ac
cording to the court decision.
This feature Is covered In tha pro
posed new measure by giving the Com
missioner of 1-ubllc Works power to
order the removal of a building within
te Ore limits wtls 1 deteriorated to
the extent of i per rent or mora by
reason of ace. fire or decay. The
method of determining the extent of
deterioration la described aa follows:
-Tha then value of the structure as
it exists shall be deducted from the
value of an exactly similar structure
except of new materials and construc
tion. Kor the purpose of making an
exact and reasonable comparison, the
values are to be based on the then ex
isting prices cf material and labor. In
the computation of the value of such
structure there shall be eliminated

CHURCH MANAGER URGED
Pastor Is Burdened, Says Rev. Bur
lingame, of San Francisco.
Why should a preacher a man who's
life training skills him to spread the
word of Ood be forced, as nearly all
ministers are. to shoulder the burden
of financial management of a great
church organization? This was the
question asked of the congregation at
the White Temple Sunday night by Rev.
George E. Burlingame. of San Fran
cisco. Th. mission the preacher is to
nreach. pointed out the minister, and
not to wrestle with'business cares that
many a man in his congregation could
settle much better than he. tev. Bur
lingame suggested that members of
the congregation take some of these
cares from the preacher, and serve God
by serving the church, allowing the
minister time for communion with hia
God, his thoughts and his books.
