There's nothing like owning a home to make a man realize that he's a trib
Rtantial citizen, or to give people the confidence in him he deserves.
You can't measure the value of owning our own home on a dollar and cents
tiasis alone and yet with rents still on the increase and the price of build
ing stabilized, probably for years to , come, home building and home ow ing
never was a better investment.
Ju::t odd to that the -valisfaeiion and content. nent for your wife, a

A eafo investment? Your house and lot are a- safe as a bond. Thcr
tfitpreeedented market now for improved property you can "cash
once if you wish. Five years Iiene:, even Uiougrh building prices

tO you, hesitate because you think
prices are too high and you'll
wait for thm to drop? You're mak
ing a mistake, for prices muu etaj at
a high level for years.
Consider the facts. There's a tremen
dous market in Europe and here at
home for everything we can make
the fundamental law of supply and de
mand must wprk. We have an unpre
cedented amount of gold in tin- coun
try, and when there is more money in
circulation and no great increase in
production, we simply pass more gold
around for our goods. We have high
prices in figures but not Jn reality,
for if wages are higher and goods are
higher, the balance remains the same.
So long as the gold stays here, prices
will hold up. In short, business men
say unreservedly that if prices do go
down at all, it will be very, very .slow
ly. In the meantime, rents are higher
and you pay relatively more to live
as great proportion as though you
built your rome at present figures'.
