About that improvement you are planning—
Why not go ahead with it?
Every reason in the world says you should.
At no period m our history have we been so sure of the future,
lie eastern world's stomach is feeling the pinch of hunger, and its
demands on the products of America's broad acres and American
industries are growing with every passing hour. A great market
is opening wider and wider. Honest and fair profits in all lines of
legitimate effort are certain.
1 here should be no curtailment in building and road construc-
tion. Let both public and private useful construction proceed.
i oduction and handling of building materials and public and pri-
vate construction work are fundamental industries of the country.
Any tendency to suspend or postpone building projects is inconsist-
ent with maintaining our prosperity. The country is prosperous.
Building investors should not hesitate to go ahead with their plans.
Railroads should spare no effort to supply the building industry
with the cars needed to transport materials. Government state
county and municipal authorities should encourage the continuance
of all kinds of building. Road and street improvements in particu
should no on unabated. Bad roads anil streets are factors of
first importance in the present high cost of foodstuffs. Never be-
fore was the improvement of highways so essential.
The lumber, brick, cement, lime, sand, gravel, stone and other
building materials industries are basic. Neither Government regu-
lations nor railroad restrictions should be imposed unnecessarily to
interfere with them. If any action is taken which results in the
prostration of so fundamentally important industries, there is real
danger of a surplus of unemployed labor, a surplus of railroad cars
and a crippling of business that will seriously embarrass the Gov
ernment in financing Uie war.
Ilie right thing to do is to keep on building.
