We believe the increased cost of build utut AT 'ings is about as follow: Steel frame build Builder v ings 70 per cent; dwellins 40 Per eent; : miscellaneous types of buildings vary be tween these two. We are of the opinion that buildings will cost more a year from today than they do now. The labor will be hierher rand we are not expecting any material decrease in material prices; E. in fact, we note a number of increases recently. Charlottesville, j Va.
