Kationai Advertising- Representative AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION 225 West S9th Street . New York City Why Not Build Now ? Did you ever stop to think j ust - how many people receive employment with the erection ef one small house ? In a re- cent survey on a two-story, o v ie-fami!y house , it was found that 14 men were employed in ih e. actual building operations, it took two men for the exca- vation , two plumbers , three masons , one electrician , three 'j arpenters , two painters , and » driver for hauling materials. Then add to these the many people it takes in the handling and preparation of materials and equipment , the many salesmen , etc. After the building is com- plete , furniture must be mov- ed or purchased , fire insurance taken upon the building, land- scaping done and perhaps rr,ore property cleared , gar- dens made and equipment p ur- chased , until the work involv- ' ed reaches enormous propor- tions . Thus , one little building creates substantial purchasing grower , ' and since the building business is the mainstay of Long Island , why not build that house you have been plan- : j iing to for some time? There ' . are many ways of financing building, and the materials are ¦ Mill comparatively low in ¦ wprice. Just now , there is a , ruT-Kry of activity in this field \ and ilTsis ^ noticeable already in the shopping centers , where , the people spend their earn- | ings. Build now for substantial prosperity ! n The Folly of State Insurance One of the most persistent .state follies is the belief that the taxpayers can be saved money if the state carries its own \fire insurance \ oh public property. Time and again con- flagrations have occurred , and the loss has cost the taxpayers more than enough to carry in- surance on the destroyed prop- erty for scores of years—but the old state insurance' fund idea persists, Now Oregon has added its name to the undistinguished list of states which' \have found , to their sorrow , that the state fund idea may be good in theory, but is dangerous in practice. A short time ago the 60-year-old Oregon state capi- tol at Salem was destroyed by fire , with a loss of between two and three million dollars. There was no insurance on the building, the legislature , some years before , having set up a self-insurance fund de- signed to cover any fire loss on state buildings. As is usual , in such instances , the fund had been built up extremely slowly and at the time of the state capitol fire amounted to less than $150 , 000. Result: The peop le must build a new capitol , at a cost of several million dollars , and must dig down into their pock- ets to pay for all but a fraction of it. That , at a time when all taxes are soaring and the public wallet is finding in- creasing difficulty in meeting the bill , is a genuine economic calamity. The Oregon capitol could have been insured for at least a substantial amount of its value during all the years of its existence , for a small part of the two or three million that has been irretrievably lost. o r-rH E first four checks to aid farm- 1 ers in Suffolk county, amounting to $3 , 032.15 , were received a few day? ago within a month of the date that Governor Lehman signed the bill es- tablishing the New York State Rural Rehabilitation corporation , according to an announcement by Lee I. Tow- S ley rural rehabilitation agent in Patchogue. The funds are advanced to farmers who are on relief or to those who would soon be forced to app ly for relief if a loan could not be secured. The purpose of the cor- poration is to develop a means of re- habilitating relief and marg inal Tural families residing in New York state. It is expected that these families will repay the loan and become financial- ly independent and thus reduce the tax burden and aid in stabilizing bus- iness in rural districts. More bans are expected to be approved within the next few weeks. The Rura l Rehabilitation depart- ment is made possible through the co-operation of Commissioner of Welfare , Ernest S. Van Hise with the Temporary Emergency Relief ad- ministration. After investigation by the Rura l Rehabilitation agent , ap- p lications for loans are approved or rejected by the Suffolk County Ru- ral Rehabilitation Advisory commit- tee , of which Mr. Van Hise is chair- man. The other members consist of a man selected by the . Farm bureau , a woman selected by the Home bure au , and a man and a woman selected by the Pomona Grange. Upon approv- al by tlii s committee , the application is sent to the extension departmen t at Cornell university for review be- fore action is taken by the State corporation. The directors of the Rural Rehabilitation corporation are : Charles D. Osborne , member of the Temporary Emergency Relief admin- istration of the State of New York ; R. Dana Skinner , M. C. Bond and Fred J. Freestone of the staff of the T. E. R. A .; Lloyd R. Simons , direc- tor of extension , New York State College of Agriculture at Cornell university ; Lincoln D. Kelsey, Rural Rehabilitation advisor , Federal Emergency Relief administration for the Eastern States Region , and A. W. Manchester , regional director , Land Policy section of the Agricul- tural Adjustment administration. Funds to carry on the activities of the corporation are obtained from the federal government under the new program of the administration. The corporation provides a vehicle whereby the Federal government can carry out its program of Rural Re- habilitation in the State of New York . %7siaTch ecks Are Issued For Suff o lk Farmers t nJJistres s Your chances of b eing in- volved in a fatal automobile accident are much greater on highways than anywhere else. Bad as the urban accident rate is , the death toll is mounting fastest in rural territories , even though traffi c is less dense. Last year 167 , 000 accidents occurred on highways. The re- sult was 160 , 000 injuries—and 13 , 000 deaths. By contrast , 286,000 city accidents caused but 8 , 000 deaths. In 1934 , the rate of death per accident on highways was more than 100 per cent, greater than the av- erage for all accidents com- bined. The reason is not hard to find. The modern highway is wide and smooth , rarely con- gested , except for a few miles here and there. It looks as safe as your own back yard. And , as a consequence , thou- sands of drivers relax behind the wheel , and step hard on the accelerator. When a crisis arrives , they react too slowly, or are going too fast to avoid a smash—and death follows. That is especially worth re- membering now, with the ap- pearance of summer. Most mo- torists will be making trips about the country —- and they should , keep in mind the un- happy fact that somnolence on the highway is an invitation to the coroner. Because the price of alfalfa seed is high , many farmers , who custom- aril y harvest alfalfa only as hay are planning a seed crop, according to the U. S. Department of A griculture. Most of the alfalfa seed is produced in the west where the climate is dry, Invitation to the Coroner _ _ .. © THE PATCHOGUE CITIZENS BANK AND TRUST COMPANY extends it, greetings to this new publication and its readers.
