After many threats and much talk  of a general ciean-up of many old dilapidated, unsafe and unsanitary buildings which have been eye-sores in the  city   for   years,   agitation   which   the  civic health and building departments  have been urging for a long time, was  at last crystallized into action by the  city  council   tin's   week,   which   finally  ordered the demolition of a number of  these   menaces   to  public  health   and  safety, r and is to deal with the others  comprised in a lengthy list submitted  by   the   health   and   building   departments at a later meeting.

He  - smiles broadly when an architect ad-  - vises a client "Sorry, but-1 guess we'll  have to wait till spring to finish the  job."   He   chuckles   when   the  owner  ' says, "I'm sorry we cannbt get mat  structure done this winter. -I've got  a tenant waiting for every apartment."  Old - Boreas lias had his way long  enough. ...  The   modern,   progressive  contractor bids old Boreas "go.to."    Winter  •   weather is no longer a deterrent even  to -concrete work.   It is true cuncrete  sets-best at a temperature above fitfy  degrees.    Of  course,  it won't freeze  -   above 32 degrees, but alternate freezing and thawing should be prevented.  This   problem   the  progressive  and  resourceful contractor solves by heating the materials before putting them  into the mixer, by warming forms before placing the concrete, and by protecting the concrete from freezing until hardened.   The heating of the materials can be readily a : „omplished by  injecting live steam into the piles or  raw materials.    The   best   protection  for forms and for setting ^concrete is  to   enclose   the   entire   building  area  with  canvas,  story;- by  story,  as   tne.  building  proceeds,   and  to-use  artificial   heat   from   salamander   or  coke  stoves so that the atmosphere in the  enclosure is similar to that prevailing  during the summer. ; These, methods  are not."--costly .and  are  common   in  many cities where contractors  make  a general practice of all-year, construe-!  tion.  The building programme of the entire Dominion is far behind schedule.  The elimination of the hibernating  period is a good way to catch up. The  call for building labor and materials  is less in the winter. This is.quite  an advantage to the men who build  during the winter. The investment  is idle until the structure is in use.  Why lengthen the period for idle investment by shutting down work during the winter months? The builder  reduces his overhead and is able to  hold his organization^together more  easily if he gives them twelve months  of active work instead of eight.  Noah had the ark ready when the  -flood came. The modern contractor  has tarpaulins and salamanders ready  for cold weather work, Noah couldn't  stop* the flood. We" can't stop cold  weather. He built the ark, probably  We can use artificial heat,  under greater handicaps than weather.

The report-was endorsed  and passed" on to next year's council with the recommendation that in  view of the coal shortage that is experienced every winter and the lower"  prices which prevail for coal during  the summer months, the^city should  secure equipment and provide large  extensions to its bunker accommodation so as; to be able to lay in a big  supply during the sunnner and thereby insure citizens against an acute  coal famine in the winter.
