In connection with the survey's recom-

traction for school buildings.
While the report roes on record as
' aistlnctljr favoring fireproof construc
tion for all lartfe and permanent bulld-
Inga, It atatea that there should be an
opportunity for . the construction of
" smair j aeml-flrerroof buildings when

After discussing, the efficiency of fire

$ Wake permanent Buildings fireproof.
.' J "Since the CtolUngwood. Ohio, disaster,
in " which a number of children were
turned to death In a poorly constructed
wooden building, many Ill-advised lawa
have been enacted In ': various states,
relative ,to the construction of school
tiouses and other public buildings.
While dlstlncUy favoring fireproof con
struction for all large and permanent
school buildings? there Is nevertheless I
auch a thing aa overdoing the matter,
s -In. a d tv auch , aa Portland, where
the centers of population are shifting
o rapidly, there ought to De some op
portunity, at una stage oi ine cure

proof buildings,, especially when these

' "'When a basement Is carefully fire
proofed; chimneys are safely built; all
electrical wiring done under -rigid In-
, spectlon; atalrwaya made or nreprooi
construction, and ample In number; and
sufficient exits re planned, with safety
locks on all doors, the danger zrom lire
within the building la SO very , email

seems too rigid.
- rirst Cost irot Whole Cost t
The first coat tot wooden construc
tion In Portland seems , to be about one
third less than for fireproof conatruc
tlon. The flrat cost. however, la not
the whole cost, Tba cost for Insurance,
upkeep,' and, repairs Is-less for a fire
proof building than for a wooden one.
The useful life of a wooden building
Is from 25 to IS years; a fireproof bulld-
. lng' ought to last century, and ought
not with present types of construction,
to become obsolete for school purpoaea
' for at least twice the length of life of
the wooden buildings provided always
that tho school population does not
move away and leave it,,';' This is a
constant danger which every growing
city faces; If It does, the one compensa
tion lies In the increased value of the
. "The new reenforced buildings of the
Falling- type are reported aa having
cost about S7009 a" classroom, and the
wooden buildings recently ; erected as
having cost about 14500 a classroom.
Thla la an Increase of H per cent In
cost for a building which ought to last
at least twice aa longs ana cov less ior
insurance and repairs In. tha meantime
Figured- ohly on . twice the length of
life though, and. also disregarding In
surance and upkeep, .the nreprooi cmua
Ing is seen to coat at roost but three
fourths that of a wooden building, and
, is thus a more economical typo of build
ing In tho long run. If one Is sure that
