An Unusually Attractive Brick j
I Bungalow Designed for a; Cor
! j ner Lot, a "Blue RibBon" j Home
Speaking of the five hundred
million dollar fire loss in the Unit
ed States last year, some observa
tions in regard to much of the
building done -in recent years
which throws an interesting light
upon these losses, were made re
cently by Franklin D. Roosevelt,
who is to the building construction
interests j what Judge Land is is to
baseball, j He made the specific
point, in; urging more substantial
construction, that fire hazards
have been Increased, and that in
surance premiums will also be in
creased; as a result of the poor
building which has been done slncj
the war. Poor materials, poor
workmanship, bad heating systems,
poor flues, all together have play
ed an important part in the in
creased! losses of the last year or
two. j r .. ;
Fires chargeable to carelessness
we have always had and probably
always shall have. ' But if home
builders, architects and contract
ors emphasize more than they ever
have the importance of sound con
struction, fire losses will certainly
be diminished.
The house which we show this
week is taken from the Blue Rib
bon homes section of the Septem
ber number of the American Build
er. It is an unusually, attractive
brick bungalow, designed for a cor
ner lot.! The materials , used are
hollow tile for the loadbearing
walls, j faced with selected com
mon brick or face brick, with
large cobblestones for the front
fireplace chimney, and burned
clay tile for roof. The exterior
materials, with the white of the
:rnvxj p -
. 9
window frames and trim, produces
a striking and very pleasing effect.
The unusual placing of the en
trance allows an especially con
venient arrangement. of the rooms.
From, the vestibule one has access
either to the living room, or the
dining room or can pass directly
back, to the bedrooms. A disap
pearing , bed in the living room

gives this five-room home the ef
ficiency of six rooms.
; The type of construction used
in this home is coming more and
more into favor with the better
home builders bver the country.
Face brick for f he exterior walls
and well burned clay tile for the
interior walls are to be ' used by
the Walstad-Person Investment
Company of Minneapolis, realtors
and builders, ill the construction
of all homes built by that concern
in the future, according to an an
nouncement by Sir. O. A. Walstad,
president. ; . J .
; "We desire to3 effect permanent
construction," Mr. Walstad states.
"The additional - cost of the class
of construction f which we have
adopted over that of other con
struction is soon regained on the
saving of upkeep. Depreciation is
reduced to the minimum, and bet
ter loan, and resale values are cre
ated. Good combined brick and
tile construction offers an insula
tion against heat in summer and
cold and wet in winter."
; A writer in tile Chicago Post, in
giving his views to the necessity
of building against upkeep costs.
has the following to say regard
ing the Ideal in home construction.
"One very certain way for the
householder to reduce the cost or
living is to hate a home that will
be as free as possible from main
tenance costs. .;. He must choose a
type of construction and materials
of the permanent sort materials
that will survive time and weather
with the minimum depreciation.
"The house which ": will save Its
owner the1 maximum amount of
1p '-"JfJ
I h in
money will have walls that will
not warp or crack. 'They will not
be affected by. the . weather or
changes in temperature. Time will
not have a disintegrating effect
upon them. They will require' no
repairs, no refinishing. To insure
the maximumiof economy as well
as the greatest possible security
they should tie : fireproof. The
walls should be impervious to
wind and cold. If they are they
will save the home owner a great
deal of money which he would
otherwise spend for fuel, for a
house that is, wind-proof and cold
proof may be heated with much
less fuel." t :i
There is only one type of ma
terial which could possibly qualify
for the service such as outlined by
this writer and that Is burned clay.
No other materials have all of the
attributes mentioned, and the more
general use of brick and building
tile would give all of the benefits
which this writer has summarized
in his ideal home construction.
Burned clay materials are pecu
liarly fitted for economy and safe
ty In home building.
The use of these materials is
not limited to the man of wealth
who builds large mansions, but
can be used as economically and as
satisfactorily by the man of small
means-who builds a five or six
room1 bungalow, And his home
may be just f as attractive and
beautiful .as . the mansion of, the
wealthy man.;. Could one ask; for

A New Industry in Salem
Oregon Gravel Ivianufac
tures "Waterseal"
Each day fires are responsible
in thi3 country for 4i deaths; 47
injuries; 480 homes in ruin; and
$1,500,000 fire-losses.
No small .. portion of this los3
starts from the roofs of all classes
of buildings. :
Concrete won't burn it Is one
of the world's worst fuels.
In the manuracture of "Water
seal" concrete roof tile, the' Ore-
gon Gravel company rlngs a
new' industry to Salemr that can
free; it from the fear of fire!
.: Concrete roof tile was first
made in the old countries of Eu
rope 30 years ago., There are
plants in this country that have
been making concrete roof tile
under the "Waterseal" patents for
the; past ten years. The Oregon
JBravel company has Installed one
of the first plants on the Pacific
Coast making these tile.
1 ' The' tile is water-proof because
of I the manner of manufacturing
and curing, ana ; Decause oi ; a,
patended interlocking feature
makes a water-tight roof against
wipd, and. tain, and snow. i -:
f'Waterseal" tile makes a beat!
fni rnnf rtf STPPI1 or red COlor
Tho rninr in the tlla is nroduced
duting manufacturing oy means
of ;a mineral color that Is perma
nent: ;.:.,
j The tile is t lighter than any
other tile on the market, welging
only 750, pounds per square. This
fact .makes it possible to lay
"yaterseal' tile right over gold
shingles with only a little addi
tional bracing of the rafters.:
The Interlocking feature of this
JLllk also makes it very easy to lay.
Nq nailing Is required, with the
exception of he fittings such . as
hips, ridges, and gable starters.
This fact allows the tile to follow
the expansion and contraction'
that occurs in the wood' roof sup
porting it. ,. ,;";
;Thfi Ore iron Gravel com nan v
makes and lays the tile, and
stands "behind, each contract. This
company welcomes , visitors to its
factory. ' where it will eladlv ex
plain the merits that this Indus try
oriera the people of Salem.
