Climatic conditions and types of

throughout the west, reports Mrs.
Margaret Tuller, Oregon state col
lege extension housing specialist,
who has just completed a federal as
signment in the western states.
A steady demand for rural housing,
she finds, has resulted from the fact
that many farmhouses are in poor
condition. Many farm families have
erected temporary dwellings until
they can afford permanent housing.
Since March 1, Mrs. .Tuller has
made two visits to each of nine west
ern states, working with extension
staffs and giving each state methods
and materials which have been de
veloped in housing by other states of
the region. The rural housing pro
gram in California, for example, is
being developed through outstanding
and extension personnel.
