Much has been said
about the f ive - room
house and its practicabil
ity. To prove that one is
practical we show here a
house that contains
enough room to be large
and with the lesser ex
pense of a small house.
The exterior design is
one that, is most adapt
able and popular on the
coast, and inland cities.
This design being in stuc
co will fit into almost any
landscape as a homey and
cheerful residence. The
French doors opening to
the pergola covered ter
race makes a very com
fortable appearance as
well as useful.
Being influenced by
the English cottage it
does not take on the characteristic squareness of the rooms which is most undesir
able. One will notice in glancing over the floor plan that all the rooms are large
and airy. The bath room at the side between the two bedrooms is accessible from
either bedroom making a very convenient arrangement.
There is an ample amount of cupboard space in the kitchen, and this room is
large enough should a built-in table be desired.
The dining room is very conveniently arranged in the rear of the house giving
priracy as well as comfort.
The fireplace located on the front side of the house and near the entrance, is at
tractive from both interior and exterior, allowing a nook beside which can be placed
either books or a seat..
One extra room may be added in attic if desired, and with a small amount of
work in plantings and shrubbery arrangements this could be -made an attractive
There is 924 square feet of floor area in this home.

A scale which places the II IS
average at 100 as Its basis, shows
the February volume of operations
to hold the Index level of 114. This
represents a one point decline from
the January mark. February, 19 ST,
saw a drop of seven points from
the mark held by the preceding
month. The corresponding decline
in 1926 was ene of 20 points.
Indication that construction op
erations will have a running start
in entering the mid-summer sea
son is found in the large volume of
contracts recently awarded. This
volume in January was the second
greatest ever registered for that
month of any year onrecord.being
10 percent greater than the cor
responding total for January,
1927, though slightly below the
peak figure established during the
first month of 1926.

Mr. Young- said. "More unfilled

stock of cars against the heavy
Spring demand. Hupmobile deal-j

cars. They have been delivering
them to owners as rapidly as they
