Two Thousand Delegates Will At
tend International Convention
at Cleveland.
CLEVELAND, O., May 7 A num
ber of important matters affecting
tbe administration of the Young
Men's Christian associations of North
America will come before the inter
national triennial convention the
legislative body of the brotherhood
which will be held in Cleveland May
12, continuing through May 1. It
is said that tbe meeting will be one
of the most significant of any of the
previous thirty-nine' meetlnga that
have been held. There will be 1,000
guests at the convention, in addition
to the 2,000 accredited delegates and
many hundred of "corresponding
members," The aesoclatlona eligible
to representation include 700 city
afinoclatlons, 2 B0 railroad, 800 col
lege and 600 county or rural asso
ciations, aa well as the army and
navy branches,
The convention marks its fiftieth an
niversary of the establishment of the
International committee, and the change
In leadership of the committee from
Richard C Morse, who for forty-el
years was its generel sei-retary, snd who
Is now retiring, lo John ft. Mott, re-oently-aleeted
general secretary.
Qaeatloa of gaperelalon.
One of the questions lo be voted upon
Is a proposal to Increase ths element of
dnmoorsoy In the supervision of the
brotherhood. On en Initiative resolution
which has been approved by an over
whelming vote of ths directors of the
aaaoclatlons In all parts of the United
ftiaiea and Canada, It Is proposed that
the lay delegates will hereafter have a
much larger proportion of the conven
tion devoted to discussions from the floor,
with fewer eddresses from the platform.
While the large assembly ef the conven
tion will be In Oray's armory, there will
be this yesr a greater number of smaller
sectional meetings, with a greatly In
creased eppotunlty for discussion and
legislation. The hall of the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers snd various
Cleveland churches will be the places of
holding these sectional meetings. The
Cleveland association Is also dismantling
the second floor of Its large building te
accommodate an exhibit of Young Men's
Christian association buildings, equip
ment and efficiency.
The Importance of ths association's
work with the smiles In Burope will have
special attention. Hundreds of trained
secretaries who have been sent over
from ths United Btstes and Canada and
who have been at work In the trenches
ss well ss with ths prisoners on both
sides of ths lines, wilt report on this
phase of Toung Mien's Chrtstlsn ssso-
cletton work,
The question of the supervision of the
saao!stlons In foreign Isnds such ss
Chins, Koree, Japan, India,' Philippines,
Cuba, Argentine. Brssit, "dine, Uruguay
and other countries will also be consid
ered. A special commission has been
studying for three years ths tremendous
expansion of the association movement
abroad, end the findings of this commis
sion will be presented by I.. Wilbur
IWcater of Chlcego as chairman.
' Wll Dlaraaa Retirement Fnnd.
The convention will be called upon to
decide whether or not It will rapltallzs
a retirement fund for secretaries, who
hsvs practically completed their life
time of aervtce. Thla commlealon la
headed by F. W. Ayer ef Philadelphia, lie
will probably ask that the fund be cap
italised to begin with at sl.WVj.WO, per
haps mors. It depends upon the actu
arial studies which be Is now having
made. This retirement fund will paral
lel that provided by meny of the denomi
nations for clergymen, by the Carnegie
fund for professors In colleges, snd such
retirement funds ss the Pennsylvania
railroad, aa well as government services.
fo far the Young Men's Christian aa
aociatlon has hsd nothing of this kind
Another Important dlscuaalon Is to be
the extent to whlrh the susnclatlon should
enter the educational field, IJke the
publlo echooin, (t has Inaugurated sum
mer Instltiitee for the training of le
younger eeeretarlea and has boiieht prop
erties In Katea Park. nar Colorado

training during the summer period.
In sdlltton to this, the association has
established Institutions of college grade
at Chicago and Springfield. Mas which
havs a very much larger attendance for
example than any other theological school
of this country and where not only sec
retaries, but physical directors snd all
sorts of gafiorliUInn epe'1altta are
trained. The exlcnt to which the asso
ciation ahall utilise the regular profee-
slonal. colleges cf the country or shell!
assist Jts own training agencies will be
reported upon by a cnmmission or w nicn
W. M. Hlrks of Montreal la chairman.
Prominent Men Mill Speak.
A remarkable group of men prominent
In civic and religious life will address the
convention. These will Include General
Leonard Wood, Dr. John II. Jowett of
New Tork City, Bishop William P. Mc
Dowell of Chlfwgo; John D. Rockefeller,
Jr.; President Garfield of Wllllama col

Where Does the Other 53 Go?
An authority on building matters, who states
that only 4796 of the New Building Owner's
money is spent for necessary labor and ma
terial divi'des the remaining 53 as follows:
4.7 to the Architect
14.6 to Sub-Contractors
8.7 to General Contractor
10 to Uneconomical Design
5 to Unscientific Buying
10 to Unnecessary Delay
TThile these figures may yary slightly in the cage of different individual buildings, they will serve
very well to illustrate, in a general way, one of the most glaring faults of the methods of conducting the
business of building, now so generally in use: and to point out what the prospective building owner
will have to protect himself against in the shape of unnecessary expense in his new building.
Every Prospective Builder should first fix on a good general idea of his requirements j then, he will
have to be sure that his Architectural Service is right j and finally he will have to be sure that his Con
tractor is capable and financially responsible.
Architects and Engineers with little or no experience have been known to specify four times the
weight of steel actually required,-" simply to be on the safe side," and this is only one example of
many possible ways of wasting material, due to the lack of knowledge concerning Technical Building
Requirements. ) . .
It stands to reason, therefore, that the Architect and Bunding Engineer should be very oarefully
chosen if the prospective builder wants to protect himself against uneconomical Architectural Design.
Financial standing and experience-record should be the principal elements governing the selection'
of the Building Contractor, if the prospective Building Owner expect to protect himself against unsci
entifio buying, unnecessary delay and mistake.
This Company's Modern Building Organization was built up for the specific purpose of cutting
down the excessive costs of Building Construction as handled under the older-day system of building.
In our Architectural Department are men whose training and experience place them in a position
to devise plans for our customers that are baaed on definite knowledge, not guess-work.
Our Architects have the constant advice of our widely experienced and technically trained Building
Engineers, while plans are being made, thus guarding against plans and specifications that call for more
building materials than are actually necessary, and while plans are bring made in our offices, the
Architectural Department is constantly in touch with the Estimating and the Construction Engineers
who will have actual charge of the building construction, and because of this advisory service we are
enabled to submit plans to client promptly, that keep the proposed building within the limit of ex
penditure planned. This naturally saves the revision so often necessary under other methods, resultant
from bids which frequently exceed the architect's original estimate.
When the plans submitted by this Company are finished, we are able to tell the prospective builder
just what his building will coat him complete.
Tbe price we quote at this time is not tha estimate of an architect, but is an actual quotation of the
price at which a reliable and financially responsible business corporation will perform the work.
When a Building Contract is signed by this Company, our Building Engineers take charge of the
work. These men have been rhoeen to fill their important position because of thrtr wide and practical
Our financial position enables us to handle the purchase of all building materials in the moat
advantage-one way powlhl.
Back of the seniors of this rgnlatln tm.a an institution which takes the full responsibility
for Hie satisfactory performance of the entire work. a. . v L .
Our responsibility in h esse means not only the acknowledgement of an obligation, hot the finan
rial and moral ability t efficiently discharge it.
