WEST  Good  Eats  "The Good Food Restaurants  •UlLOdNGt -. EXPERT       PREDICTS  PRIOES WILL NOT tfROP,  \      FOR FIVE YEARS  The building situation with its ae-  ■   WHapenying high prices and growing  *nercity of materials Ik an all-absorb-j  Ins topic  with  architects,  engineers  and contractors, and opinions are varied as to just what is to be the outcome.      Whether    construction    will  ."-.proceed with a boom, or whether there  will be a complete cessation, of building operations in the hope of seeing  "material* prices drop    are  'questions  ■which would seem time alone will answer.    Builders are advised to wait  no longer in an article in the Literary  Digest, which says:  "Do not put off till' next year the  "building   that  might be. started  tnls  summer, is, in short', the advice given  ' ^to .prospective builders and investors  concerned about building,- by ,Mr. Allen 12. Reals,   secretary,.of   the Dow  Service Daily Building Reports. Building costs   are   excessively   high,   but  this expert insists that nothing is to  W gained   by waiting unless one  is  .prepared to wait five years' or more.  In a  signed  article  on  the  financial  page of the New York American re-  minds   us   that   "after  the  American  civil war  thirteen  years  elapsed   before the  price of  building, materials  reverted to pre-war levels."'  Even though the price peak of materials may. be reached in less time  than that, it seems to this authority  on  the   building   mark ;t   that   mere  will be a high price level either at or  .   above the  present prices  which*'will  be maintained for a long time.   So the  best things for the tmnaer to do is  "to start his plans at once instead of  waiting until next spring and finding  that   prices   are   still   higher.     .The  -builder need not expect a speedy job.  Up to the present the .lack of labor  : ~lms baen interfering with" the completion of much of the work under way  In the Eastern States, but Mr. Reals  believes   that   "from  this -time   forth  "the regarding factor will  concern, it-  ^eir to the ability of getting materials  as they are needed."    But there- are  things that are decidedly in trie eulld-  'st's favor, he believes.    They include  the present market price, for building  material    will    not   suddenly   recede.  The man who builds now will be assured of high returns upon his enter-  .Trise for at least two.years after the  •supply of building material and their  prices return to an approximate nor-  , Tnal level, and he will get probably a  better   constructed   building * because  Jess reliable contractors are now out  T>f the market. •  "Discussing the whole building material situation, Mr. Reals notes that  ''since the armistice a year and a half  ago, the building interests have passed  through a vale of paradoxes, that has  no parallel in war or any other era in  the jnemory of business men."  PENTICTON  PLANNING  TO   ENLARGE   HOSPITAL  PENTICTON—The Penticton Hospital Board has a man's size problem  on its hands at present and has already held one meeting and will hold  another conference with the city council soon to wrestle with the question  of whether to build a* new wing to  the existing hospital or an entirely  new modern fire-proof building.  While the majority of. the board  favor the latter course and there is  no question but that a new hospital  building; is rneeded, the question of  raising the $100,000 or $150,000 needed is a, big problem and one that apparently offers no easy solution at  present.  .At the meeting of the board last  week Mrs. Runnions, matron attended and strongly pressed for- the construction of a. maternity wing* to the  present hospital building, . claiming  that was the most urgent necessity  at present. She, pointed out she had  nine, maternity cases at one time re-j  *  ' a  cently, which overtaxed the accommodation available. ;Architect Lindsay Swan, of the firm of Swan & Augustine, also attended the meeting and  submitted alternative sketch plans  for a new maternity wing and also a  new main building. .The*, board, is to  meet again this week to decide what  to do in_ the way of a building programme. It is considered probable  that effort will be first centered on a  new wing to accommodate maternity  and other cases as being what is best  needed to fill a pressing need. The  new wing will cost "about $19,000.  LARGE  GAIN   SHOWN   IN  ' .

The annual rental of the tract is to be agreed  on and the date of the lease, if granted, is to   .start on May 24, 1921.    Mr.  Jones  specifies,  however, "if   granted  the- lease, that he is  to have possession on January 1 'next so as to have  time to improve "the tract and  have,  it ready for the opening on' May 24.  One feature of the proposal which appeals particularly to the aldermen is  the .fact that Mr.  Jones agrees  that  all improvements are to'revert to the  city at the expiration of the five-year  lease term.        "   . ,  The tract in question, which was  •filled in about a-year and ashal£ago.  ^,lias had plenty of time to'settle and  is in fine shape for to be made into  an athletic field, as it is as level as a  billiard table and only requires underdrawing, seeding and fencing.  There"are, seven-main street car lines  passing the front of the pn&poserl  park, a'hd it is only a few minutes'  walk from the heart of the c:i.y.-.  The "proposal was referred " by the  council to the city engineer to report  to the next meeting- of the board of  works, when Mr. Jones" will be given  an opportunity of appearing m support of his proposal. The majority of  the aldermen appear to favor the plan  if the city's title to the property can  be cleared to alow of it.  J  BlbS ARE ASKED ON  NEW  WHARF AT THETIS  ISD.
