Construction of fire-safe buildings  is a national duty which is second to  none.' "Moral obligation to protect the  lives and property of others is too  great to be evaded or ignored. It is  poor consolation to reflect that the  general public does .not realize that  while we are putting forth every" effort to obtain more buildings, we are  ourning up in a few years as much- as  we build in one.' Because of the present urgent need of buildings of all  kinds, and" especially dwellings, our  appalling fire loss is a" near-international calamity.  According to statistics published by  Bradstreet's New York Agency, the  average annual value of new buildings constructed in Canada and the  United States during .the past* ten  years from 1910 to the beginning of  1920 amounted to $914,376,500. The  highest* * figures for construction during this ten year period was. not back  fin pre-war days,- as one would think,  but la-* year when the total was.$l,-  326,936,700, and the lowest yearly total  was in the last year of the war,' 1918,  when the construction work in. the  United States was curtailed to.nothing but * absolutely necessary undertakings. That year the building total  dropped to * $445,549,500.. But the average was $914,376,500, and these figures cover 171 leading cities in Canada and the United-"States.  From the reports of leading insurance companies covering risks in  these 171 cities, the surprising fact is  evolved that the average annual fire  losses for this ten year period amount  to "the appalling total of $242,201,600.  This huge sum represents the actual  adjustments made. It does not take  into account the fact that buildings are  never insured for their full value and  that many heavy losses are not covered by insurance at all. In other  words the ratio of fire losses to new  buildings ,constructed figures out at  0.265.  Looking at the figures from another  angle, we see that with all our record  breaking activity during 1919, the actual CONSTRUCTION in 171 cities  during that one year is no more than  the DESTRUCTION by fire during the  pa.st five years. Even this poor showing is better than the average for ten  years/which actually indicates that  we burn up practically the value of  one year's building in less than four  years.  ERECT  $50,000   SCHOOL  WITH   SALVAGED  BRICK  "Work has been corrimene'ed" by Vancouver School Board workmen under  the direction of Mr., F. A. A. Barrs,  building superintendent of the.school  board, on the erection of a new $50,-  000 school building on the site of the  old . Strathcona school. The new  building will be a one-story structure  and' is being built with the salvaged  brick and other material from the old  Strathcona school, which is being de-  r.iolished after being condemned some  time ago.  The heating of this new,eight-i*oom  school  will 'be  accomplished, by  con-  nectlng'up with the other-large school-  building on the site at the corner of |  . *■ tt *   *  Pender street, east, and Jackson Avenue. The school is .to be - largely, of a  temporary nature and: will be'roofed  with ready roofing, in-'-ordef to "get it  leady as soon as possible to relieve  (lie school congestion that exists in  this section of.the.eity.  LOCAL   MEN  ON   COUNCIL  OF  ARCHITECTURAL  BODY  .   *    \  OTTAWA—At   the   closing   session  at the convention of the.Royal Architectural Institute of Canada last Saturday, David Brown of Montreal 'was  elected president; L.~H. Jo"rdon, Winnipeg, and W. D. Cromary, Ottawa,  were elected vice-presidents; A.  Chausse, Montreal, Honorary secretary, and Charles S. Cobbe, Toronto,  treasurer. Mr. Chausse, who-is the  founder of the institute, was „elected  secretary for the thirteenth time.  The newly-elected council includes:  •A. J. Wilson, Edmonton; S. M. Eveleigh, Vancouver; A. I_. Mercer, Vancouver; David Webster, Regina; A.  Melville, Winnipeg; R. B. Pratt, Winnipeg, and M. WT. Sharon, Edmonton.  The next assembly of the -institute  will be held ■ in Winnipeg.  POINT   GREY'S   PERMITS  SHOW   LARGE   INCREASE  • POINT* GREY.-"— The municipal  building department is justly proud  of the splendid increase shown by tho  report of £he building inspector for  September, which demonstrates in an  unmistakable manner the groAving  popularity of Point Grey for home-  builders. During the past month there  were SS permits issued, of a total value of $2-12,345, which is nearly double  the aggregate value of the construction authorized during the same  month of last year, when the 56 por-  .mits issued had a total value of $135,-  S55.  The big bulk of this total, it is satisfactory to note, is for the construction of the many handsome new  homes for which Point Grey is becoming justly noted. There were no  fewer than 57 new dwellings commenced during the month, which is  nearly a score more than was commenced during the month in Vancouver. The total value of these new  dwellings aggregates $230,400, while  repairs and alterations accounted for  $6,715 of the total, and the 14 garages  erected amounted to $4,230.  For. the first nine months of the current year there has been 586 permits  issued authorizing construction of an  aggregate value of $1,687,159, which  shows considerably more than a fifty  per cent, increase over the figures for  the same period last,year, when the  342 permits issued had a total value  of $1,005,416.

Whitaker, of the American Institute of Architects said at  yesterday afternoon's session of the  Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.  "Bankers are telling us the kind of  buildings we are to build, not contrac-  'tors and architects,.."and the result is  that the industry in the "United State-  is paralyzed and at a standstill, except in the isolated cases where cost  is of no consequence," he added.  He referred tot the special session  of the New York Legislature recently  at which special laws affecting building and rents passed. "Tt is utterly  impossible to pack more people into  New York City. Imagine tbe State of  New York legislating to build houses  in the cities when 33,000 farms were  abandoned throughout the State in a  single year. The housing problem can  not be solved until the land problem  is dealt with."  VICTORIA PERMITS  910—Turner, garage, 524 Cecelia St.,  $75, R. A. Wright, contr.  911— W.
