Perhaps you have heard that before. We repeat it, BUILD NOW. Not merely to provide employment for
mechanics and tradesmen, though that is a fine thing for the community and the country. BUILD NOW for
your own self-interest.
Are you planning a home? . . Build it now!
Are you planning a store building? . . Build it now!
Are you planning an apartment house? . . Build it now!
Are you planning an addition to a plant? . . Build it now!
Costs are now at the lowest levels since 1916. You can build now with a saving of 27 per cent over 1 926. But
these levels are NOT PERMANENT. Lumber is not going to stay indefinitely below the cost of production:
The same with other materials.
Already there are signs of a turn in the tide. Wheat prices have jumped nearly 100 per cent in 60 days. The
orders for lumber made a 1 5 per cent increase in one week, the greatest inmany months. Security prices are
pointing the way to recovery. Before long the building revival will be on, prices will rise, contractors will all
be busy, mechanics will be hard to get. The tide is out ; move fast before the flood of rising prices reaches you.
Following prices were secured from
Salem dealers, and show savings
now over. iyzt.
