A house with a rectangular plan
is invariably the most economical
to build and maintain. A plan ap
proaching a square in shape gives
the maximum contained space for
a given perimeter. It can be read
ily understood that a bouse with
a minimum exterior wall space re
quires less heat in winter and re
duces painting and maintenance
costs. The initial installation of
plumbing and heating lines costs
less for the square plan.

the house an appearance of addi

SCHOOL IT SHOW
Exhibit . Closed Saturday
Outdoes ; Marks';. Made
Outdoing high marks of pre
vious years, doors were closed
late yesterday afternoon on the
annual art exhibit sponsored by
pupils and teacher . of Salem
school ; under ' direction, of ; Mrs.
Ida M. Andrews, supervisor. The
exhibition, placed in the assem
bly at the high school, did, not
attract as many Saturday visit
ors as usual, although . a large
crowd witnessed the program -and
"living' pictures displayed Fri
day night. - ' -
Each school had some out
standing piece of work on dis
play, and even the grade chil
dren's work j reflected a .nicety
that speaks well for the instruc
tion given and -the prospects for
finer work as they older grow.
Showing Excellent :
An. electric products map,
made and displayed by pupils of
grade school, attracted consider
able attention. Highland pupils
probably had as large variety of
work, including woven rugs and
illustrated and framed , pieces
made in connection with a poetry
project, as any school. The sen
ior high school . exhibited the
most finished work, of , course. A
series of miniature stages, peo
pled, , contributed by the high
school art classes, attracted com
ment. . .
Several schools had made
large panels in connection with
projects, or simply as a piece of
art work, these including Leslie
and Alaska. Parrish exhibited
some cleverly made and colored
wastepaper baskets, and among
the other novelties was soap
