Common Brick Defies
Draw Shades Half Way
Exposure to Elements
to Keep Tone of Room
There are probably few If any of
the ancient buildings that so effec
tively stir the Imagination of the mod
ern reader as does the fatuous old
Colosaeum of Home. It ha* stood for
centuries as a monument to the qual
ity of building and of the materials
that were u*ed In ancient days. Trav
elers returning from Borne have re
ported that bricks were being taken
from this great theater of tho rulers
of the ancient Roman empire to be
used In the construction of new home«.
It Is pleasing to lesm that the dic
tator, Mussolini, has passed a decree
forbidding the Italian people to dis
turb any part of thk Colosseum. The
bricks In that building are more than
2,000 years old, and are In such good
condition that they can still he used
after all these centuries. There was
a grave danger that the structure In
which early Christian martyrs were
sacrificed to the lions and where the
•Id gladiatorial combats were held
would be destroyed. Whatever we
may think of Mussolini's policies, we
must certainly commend him lu the
stand which he has taken.
The use of these 2,000 year-old
bricks is of particular Interest at this
time, when an much street la being
placed on permanent const ruction.
They were manufactured of the same
materials and under practically the
same methods that are used In the
manufacture of present day common-
burned day brick«. It la possible that
2.U0U years hence some equally ruth
less despoilera srtU be tearing down
eur old landuvarka to build bousee out
ef the present day bricks.
