' It is generally conceded by those in.)  a position to know that tlie prices of  certain materials used in "building will  Temairi up for an undetermined and  probably long; period. It is also conceded that with such a shortage in the  "world's available supply of certain materials, no successful attempt can be  made to bring these prices down. On  the other hand, it is conceded that  prices of certain materials are subject  T:o unnecessary, fluctuation, and it° is  S» this connection* that'Hinited, action  on the part of the rriasfefr'builders as  •well as those in the building- trade  generally, can.be taken..to create, a  Jeeling of confidence on the part of intending builders and owners that there  is to be no extensive juggling of prices  of building materials in" the near future.  The one point.on which all builders  are pretty well agreed at the present  time is that the cost of building construction must be kept down to the  lowest possible minimum consistent  with a fair return,to, the contractor  ■and those associated with him in the  various trades interested. It is  tacitly agreed among the majority of  Guilders that the cost of building construction should not be allowed to in-  'crease until everything else has gone  -up, if at all. That is the stand which  the officials of the Northwest Master  Builders' Association of Seattle have  "taken, and it is a position which quite  safely might be assumed •'•■by the local  "builders' association. ,   ,  There  is  no doubt  about  the  fact  that there  is  lots  of ...building to   be  NEW WORK - CONTRACTS LET  THE   FOLLOWING   TABLE   SHOWS   BUILDINGS   COSTING    f5,000    OB    OVER,    ON     WHICH    CONSTRUCTION  UNDER WAT, OB ON WHICH CONTRACTS HAVE BEEN LET BUT CONSTRUCTION NOT YET STARTED.
