Simmons, Carter Cotton building, who was appointed by 'the city  council last spring as special supervising architect in connection with  the erection of new homes under the  Soldier Housing Act, asked the civic  building committee on Monday to be  relieved of his' duties at tha end of  the year.

Some   architects   have   been   faced  with the question by the owners, since  cost-plus work has begun" to prevail,  as to whether the architect's' charge  should  be  based  on  the  direct  cost  of  material  and   labor  only,   or   on  those items plus the'general'contractor's overhead and profit percentages.  The architect "works on the basis of  a fee based on the cost of the building, and as the cost-plus system surely includes contractors' profits in the  cost, there  is'no technical  or  legal  reason why the architect should not  base  his   commissions   of   others'  asv  well.   From a moral standpoint, he is  entitled  to be considered  as worthy  of his 'hire.   The architect is the first  in the field on a building project and  the last man at the^1 finish.   He must  untangle all tangles.   His sole interest is to get for the owner the best  building possible, while doing justice  to the contractor at the  same time.

He considered that  not only had'the city's allocation ot  $300,000 for soldier housing "been used  to' the best advantage possible, but  that the erection of these 84 new -residences had materially helped to relieve  in some degree at last the housing  shortage.

' The" general contractor collects a  percentage fee oh a'gr^efct many items  on which fie expends-"no''effort; and  for 'which he 'makes no monetary outlay, but as this would be the case  with hihi on a lump *6um contract,  there is no essential difference on'the  cost-plus contract in the architect  asking his fee on every item which  .goes into the cost of the'structure.  The "single advantage accruing out  of the whole cost-plus cost system, is  that architects how, more than ever  before, and .owners for the first time,  scrutinize the itemized cost of their  buildings carefully, and a tendency is  beginning to show of ,a more careful  analysis of planning, sizes, qualities  and a differentiation between essential and non-essential factors.

The studies he makes and much  of his'work in the final result is not  included in the cost of the building,  and therefore he does not collect any  fee, this extra professional work by  the architect more than offsets such  fees as may come to him when he  collects his percntage on the contractor's percentage. There is a way  to guage the contractor's performance,  but the work done" by the architect  eludes any measuring process.

The heating, lighting and  ventilation   in   the  latter   building  is  also sadly in need of improvement and  that fact is also being brought to the  attention of the provincial education  department.  Good progress is 6eing made now  on the erection of the new Anglican  church and -parish room on Victoria  avenue, >which •wa& commenced a few  days ago. Volunteer workers from'  the congregation are doing most of  the work since the foundation has been  laid, and it is hoped to liave the  church section of the building ready  for the opening service on the Sunday-  following Christmas. Funds for the  purchase of building ' material have  been quite liberally supplied and the  women workers' of the congregation  have also secured a considerable amount of church furniture in anticipation of the opening.  Another new"' dwelling has just been  started by Sheppard Bros, on Washington Avenue. It is of the popular  bungalow type and will cost about  $2,500.  J. Hanbury & Co.
