Complete Exhibit Is Arranged
at Bungalow.
Houses Range in Size From Three to
Seven Rooms and Arc of One
and Two Stories.
Hundreds of Portland people have
Visited the bungalow headquarters of
the "own-your-home" campaign. Fourth
and Stark streets, to study the archi
tectural display arranged by the Ore
gon chapter of the American Institute
of Architects as the initial step in the
bousing movement.
C. J. Hogue, district secretary for tha
West Coast Lumbermen's Association,
has made a close study of the exhibit,
which will close in two weeks. The ex
hibit of drawings and photographs of
houses now being shown in the bun
galow headquarters of the "own-your-liome"
movement covers the range of
domestic architecture from a three
room bungalow to a country estate,"
Hr. Hogue said yesterday.
"The exhibit is made by members of
the Oregon chapter of the American In
stitute of Architects, who, recognizing
the need of additional housing in Port
land, were instrumental in stimulating
the survey of the housing situation and
of the plans for industrial housing,
which were modified, by the close o
the war.
Thirty-three TypM Shown.
"A feature of tha, exhibit is the show
ing of drawings for war . emergency
housing in the west wing of the bun
galow. At the lime the housing plan
was in preparation sketches for 33
types of houses were prepared by
various members of the Chapter of
Architects. II was the intention to pro
vide working plans of these houses for
the use of any prospective builder for
practically the cost of reproduction,
while material men and contractors
proposed to demonstrate their interest
in the matter by furnishing materials
and doing the work almost at cost.
"Working plans for some of the
bouses are prepared and can he ob
tained for a very nominal cost, while
those' for any not completed can be
made available very reasonably.
"These houses range in size from
three to seven rooms. Some are of one
story and some of two, and, while
largely of a modified English type, ex
amples are shown of Dutch Colonial,
Swiss and the true bungalow type. Par
ticular attention was paid in the design
of these houses to their placing with
relation to the points of the compass,
so types can be selected for a lot facing
in any direction, for it makes a great
deal of difference in 'the enjoyment of
a house whether or not the living-room
has a pleasant outlook, the kitchen a
cool corner, the dining-room the morn
ing sun perhaps, the sleeping porch
the evening breeze and not the morning
sun. and so on for practically every
room in the house.
V Architectural Style Varied.
"In he main room and east wing of
the bungalow many styles of archi
tecture are shown In sketches for
houses and photographs of completed
"Among them, and as demonstrating
the variety in style and size, may be
mentioned interiors and exteriors of
houses in Colonial, Georgian and vari
ous English styles designed by Jacco
berger & Smith; the McDougall resi-
deuces on Thurman street, handsome
examples of half-timbered work de

block in the residence designed for R.
F. Lytle by D. L. Williams; the Italian
villa designed by Whitehouse & Fouil
houx for C. S. Jacobson on the Colum
bia River Highway; the industrial
housing plans made by Sutton & Whit
ney for the Todd Dry Dock & Con
struction Company of Tacoma; ex
amples of typical English houses in
cement plaster as shown in the houses
designed for Dr. R. A. Fenton and T. H.
Sherrard by Wade Pipes, and the
adaptation of the English-thatched
roof type shown in the residences de
signed by Lawrence & Holford for Paul
Murphy and F. E. Taylor.

Greatest Need for Thrift Is National
(Thrift Magazine.)
Three hundred thousand children
under 5 years of age die in this country
every year, and many of those who sur
vive grow up to enfeebled maturity.
The greater need for thrift is not in
pennies, nor sugar, nor any material
substance, but in humanity ltBelf. For
this reason I took as my work for the
year an experiment in feeding a group
of children, giving them a balanced
meal at lunch time cooked by the chil
dren of the cooking class.
A total of 1170 children were classi
fied and their weight record was com
pared with their class standing at the
end of May. There were 825 pupils
rated as normal, 70 per cent of the
school: 345 were underweight, 30 per
cent of the school. .
The underweights, though forming
30 per cent of the school, gave but 27
per cent of the successful pupils at the
end of May, and provided 3 per cent of
those who had not done satisfactory
The 70 per cent of normal children
gave but 5t-per cent of the failures.
Taking the normal children as a class
by themselves, 88 per cent had done
satisfactory work, and 12 per cent had
a poor rating, while 22 per cent of the
underweight children were rated as un
satisfactory. In other words, the un
derweight child has almost twice as
many chances of failure as the normal

Total of Permits In 148 Cities of
Cnited Slates Officially Re
ported at $17,485,396.
Portland was one of the leading
cities in the United States in building
operations in December, 1918, accord
ing to statistics compiled by the Amer
ican Contractor. Permits were issued
In Portland during December for 314
buildings to cost $317,215. compared
with 216 permits for buildings to cost
$'J1.285 during December, 1917. The
sain was 247 per cent.
" A favorable reaction from war re
strictions can be noted in the records
of building permits issued in the mu
niciple cities, throughout the United
States for December." says the publica
tion. "The total value of permits is
sued during October, $26,279,711, was
the lowest record for any month up to
that time during the past six years:
but the total value for November was
almost negligible, amounting to only
$6,593,857 in 151 cities.
"During December in 148 cities the
total value of building permits offic
ially reported was $17,485,396. Although
this was 38 per cent less than the total
value reported during December. 1917,
the gain over November is significant,
since usually fewer permits are Issued
in December than in November. The
total is still far below normal, but ap
parently the removal of Government
restrictions on building and the end of
the war are having the desired favor
able effect.
"Of the 148 cities reporting a gain
over December, 1917, the lar-est trains
were in Albany, N. V.. Camden, N. J.,
Canton. Cincinnati, Columbus and Day
ton, Ohio. Indianapolis, Ind.. New Ha
ven, Conn.. Niagara Kalis, tf. Y., Port
land, Or.. Richmond, Va., and Salt Lake
City. Utah.
"The total value of building permits
for the year is significant only as it
indicates the decline in private con
struction due to war conditions. The
total value of $414,796,903 for 191S
shows a loss of 39 per cent over the
total of $676,662,206 for 1917. and a loss
of 114 per cent over the total of $889,
S84.679 for 19J6. The loss as fairly
evenly distributed over all months of
the year July showing the least de
cline with only 10 per cent loss, No

Cowlitz Men Buy Rich Bottom Land
Place Near Kelso.
KELSO, Wash. Jan. 25. (Special.)
One of the largest farm deals in Cow

ngenuity to the prosecution of the
war. The latest sample is credited to
an Indian contingent which success
fully tried out setting bear traps in No
Man's Land. The Indians were simply
applying an Idea of their own Wst
where big game is plentiful. The traps
are placed outside the American wire,
and when Fritz crawls out to gain a
little information he gets caught.
Another truly American idea which le

are the so-called "buckshot squads."
These squads are made up of crack
trapshooters. Instead of directing their
efforts on clay pigeons they deflect
the band grenades which the German
hurl toward their trenches. The force
of a full charge of buckshot on a Mills
bomb, for Instance, is to make It fall
many yards short of the object foi
which It was intended. It explodes, o(
course, but outside the trench, and
the steel particles fly harmlessly over
the heads of the men. Thus a popular
