THERE are plans without number for fire and six
room bungalows, but two particular arrange
ments have the atrongcst appeal, especially where
economies are in order. In one of these arrange
merits the living: quarters of the house are separated
from the sleeping quarters and bath room by the
wall that runs down the center from front and back.
Thus living room, dining room and kitchen are ar
ranged on one side, with bed room, bath and second
bed room on the other. The other scheme Is to have
living room, dining room, kitchen In front and two
bed rooms in the rear. Both of these are old, well
established plans that have been found satisfactory
by thousands of home builders.
The design shown here, 5-D-35, is the second of the
two schemes described above, but its arrangements
comply with that formula only in the most general
way. Changing the direction- of the living room,
for example, is a variation which seems to make
a completely new plan scheme. The arrangement Is
!ound. There is the separation between living quar
ters and the morel private quarters of the house,
which should be possessed by every bungalow.
Tfodoubtedlv fhe most distinguishing feature ef
thla design la tie living room with its high cell
ing. This has sometimes been called a. "studio"
type room. The rafters form part ef the ceiling.
This makes possible the use of a, large window In
ihe front wall and adds a sense of luxury and
spaciousness at very nominal expense. The unique
quairtles of this room have been heightened by mak
ing a decorative feature of, the bookcases. These
hsve been built st each side of the fire place in Una

Great Progress in Refores
tation Noted In Many
Parts of Country
Longriew, Wn., January 14
Trade extension work for stabilis
ing the lumber industry was en
dorsed by the Society of American
Foresters in a resolution passed at
a meeting of the society In San
Francisco recently, according to
word received by the West Coast
Lumber Bureau. The resolution
also advocated the use of wood for
all purposes for which it la most
suitable, pointing out that when
Letter utilization is coupled with
effective steps for bringing about
the growth of new forests It would
be of great public benefit.
Great progress has - been made
in reforestation In many parts of
the country. It was brought out
at the meeting, both In changed
forest taxation and In fire pre
vention. The public has become
aware of the fire hazard as a vi
tal problem and is co-operating In
helping keep fires out of the
woods. Fire protection is devel
oping steadily. . Tax legislation
favorable to reforestation also Is
increasing, 130 laws and , amend
ments having to do with forest tax
ation and forest growing having
been passed in the United States
during 1927. An increasing num
ber of lumber: companies are r re
foresting their logged-oft land and
regulating their cut with the aim
of operating on a sustained yield.
PORTLAND, Ore., Jsn. 11.
The 1927 cut of all soft woods in
the fir districts of Oregon and
Wsshington totaled nearly 11
billion feet of lumber, which, ac
cording to the annual surveys of
the 4L organization, is 5 per cent
less than the 1926 cut of 12 bil
lion feet in the same districts.
Says the current issue of the Four
L Lumber News:
"In the pine territory east of
the Cascades the 1927 cut of near
ly 3 billion feet is 10 per cent less
than the 1926 cut
"The total cut of all soft woods
In both the fir and pine districts
of Oregon, Washington and Idaho
was one billion feet under the
1926 cut, or 7 per cent less than
the 1926 total of slightly more
than 15 billion feet.
Seventy-six per cent of the
lumber produced during 1927 in
the fir districts was cut by 155
major operations, while 24 per
cent was cut by more than 1000
smaller mills of capacities rang
ing from 5000 to 100,000 feet per
shift. The reduction of more than
250 million feet cut by Group 1
fir sawmills (the major group)
as compared with the 1926 cut of
this group, is accounted for by the
fact that a number of Group 1
mills, active during 1926, were in
active throughout 1927, while still
others were closed for six months
or more. These included the Stout
Lumber Co. and Coos- Bay, the
Mlckle and Peninsula plants in
Portland, the west mill on Grays
Harbor, the Dempsey plant In Ta
coma, and others.
"A comparison of extra shifts
operated during 1927 in all dis
tricts, both fir and pine, with those
cutting in. 1926, shows little
change . A review of 1927 curtail
ment shows that there was a no
ticeable reduction of output In sev
eral districts, both east and west
of the Cascades, but in the fir ter
ritory the reduction was largely
offset by increased production In
two or three districts.
"The actual number of major
operations in both fir and pine
territory has not changed mater
tally since a year ago. Plants that
were suspended, dismantled or de
stroyed by fire during the past
year have been replaced by others
oz practically equal total capac
The small sawmill operations of
both fir and pine- territory show a
decrease In number. The trend ap
pears to be toward fewer and larg
er operations, with the heaviest
'mortality during the past two
years in the Group 4 class, those
sawmills cutting 25 thousands feet
and less per shift.
"The smallest cut for 1927 re
ported by any fir mill is a run of
three days cutting 10,780 foot feet
b. m., while the largest produc
tion shows 987 day and night
shifts with a total cut of 422 mil
lion feet."

Scheme To Lower Weight
Reducing the welght-per-horse-power
is one of the problems that
automotive engineers are con
stantly attacking. Fuel economy,
increased speed, ast pickup, rapid
deceleration, and more tire mile
age are some of the benefits gain
ed from lowering the weight per
horsepower. In the Victory Six,
Dodge Brothers' latest creation,
the weight has been brought down
to only 49 pounds per peak horse
power developed by the motor.
It is normally a considerable
hazard to drive over slippery or
Icy pavements with two wheel
brakes, but with Chandler's four
wheel brakes, which are standard
equipment, there Is a decided feel
ing of security and confidence at
all times.
Chandler brakes are tested And
retested before leaving the fac
tory to Insure perfect equaliza
tion. The entire mechanical con
struction is very rugged.
Under a new law in Texas every
child who has completed grammar

in a high school elsewhere in his

by various county school boards to
carry pupils to the high schools
in the larger towns and cities in
each county.

Along Boardwalk
Atlantic City escaped tremendous loss of life only by
the fortunate circumstance of the blaze
developing in middle of afternoon
Six hotels, seven amusement places and a score or
more cottages, all of frame construction, were totally
destroyed by fire recently along the Jbbardwalk in At
lantic City with a loss estimated at a quarter million
dollars. Half a city block was razd by the flames
which fortunately broke out in the middle of the after
noon. Had it been at night heavy loss of life could
hardly have been averted as the buildings burned like
tinder. The, section of the boardwalk between Missouri
and Arkansas avenues was so badly warped and
charred that it was necessary to replace a considerable
portion of it.
All of the structures were built a number of years
ago when the menace to life of frame hotels in resorts
of this kind was not fully appreciated. Under the city
building code all of the burned buildings will have to
be rebuilt of brick or other f iresafe materials.
