WORK IS STARTED ON WINTER PARK NEW HIGH SCHOOL
Building Completed Sometime This Fall
The work of clearing ground for the new Winter Park High School will be finished within a few days and the erection of the first unit of the new school will be started at that time. Construction will be rapidly pushed in the endeavor to finish the building sometime this Fall so as to take care of the thirty per cent increase in students which crowded the old high school building last year.
This building is the first of three units to be built on the five acre tract in the southern section of the city. It will be of hollow tile, finished in stucco, following the graceful lines of the Mediteranean architecture and will consist of 16 rooms.
The architects plans show a large auditorium with ample room for a gymnasium and commercial department for the center unit, with the senior and junior high school buildings on either side. Upon the completion of the first building it will be used as the senior and junior high school.

OF MAITLAND REALTY COMPANY
Theodore R. Jones, of Winter Park has taken the position of Branch Manager of the Winter Park Office of the Maitland Realty Company, and will officially open that office August 2nd. Mr. Jones is a young man of per sonality, industry and enthusiasm, who has had many years of experience in the real estate business; first in his home city, St. Louis, and later as Vice President and Manager of the Loan Dept. of G. L. Miller and Company, Investment Bankers, of New York and Atlanta. On coming to Florida Mr. Jones entered the real estate business in St. Petersburg, where he and his family lived for several years. On account of the conservative and substantial growth of this section he decieded to leave the West Coast and settle in this part of Florida, which he states is in his opinion the best part of the state and has the most certain future before it. The Winter Park office will do a general brokerage business, giving special attention to Winter Park and Orlando property, while the Maitland office will continue as before to concentrate upon Maitland property and acreage, both offices selling Greenwood Gardens lots.

BILLBOARDS AGAIN?
The billboard evil is not yet entirely annihilated, even here in Maitland where we have both county and town authorities behind strong public senti ment in favor of abolishing this blot on our beauty. There is, however, one spot along the highway where signs seem to congregate, and altho there is no special view to hide, it seems unfortunate that the juncture of the two beautiful cities of Winter Park and Maitland should be made the advertising board for anyone who sees fit to erect a sign within the limits of Maitland these signs are kept off the right-of-way, but the Town has no jurisdiction over private property.
Recently one concern has erected three signs along this bit of highway. Have they had permission to do soIf so, will not someone who has in fluence with these property owners show the the undesirability of putting their property to such uses? If they did not get permission, will the property owners see that the signs are removed?
Two means can public opinion use to discourage billboards. First, it can arouse in property owners a real pride in property. This has been done to a great extent. Last year a sign company chose twenty desirable places in Orange County to erect signs and

of these twenty, in only two cases were they given the concession asked. Can we in Maitland cut that number by twoIt can show its disapproval by patronizing these firms that keep their names off the highway. A consistent program along both these lines will do much to rid our highways of this blemish.

FLORIDA STILL LEADS WORLD IN CONSTRUCTION
The Southern states showed a gain of almost 10 per cent in building per mits for the first six months of 1926, setting a new high mark for all times with 436,200.423 for the period ords complied by the survey department of G. M. Miller and Company
investment bond house, of Atlanta
The total for the same period in 1925 was 400,384,784, which was a 15 per cent gain over 1924. Every semiannual period since 1924 was said to have a new high mark.
"Contrary to the popular opinion," the report said, there has been no lessening of construction apparent in Florida. This state amassed a total of 155,144,303 for the six months against 87,095,115 for a similar per iod in 1925. Although there had been some falling off from the winter months in the spring the month of June returned more than a million dollars more than May.
"with such a showing, Florida easily ranked first with more than 35, 000,000 ahead of Texas, where great gains have been in evidence for a number of months. Miami also took honors among cities of the farther south, leading Houston, its nearest competitor, by four million, and At

REPLACING OLD AND WORN OUT CURRENCY
Today this country uses three times more paper money than used in 1916, and six times more than in 1900. This means that the wear and tear on currency is correspondingly greater than in the years mentioned, and all of this money must be replaced and put back into circulation. The government maintains a print. ing office called the Bureau of graving and Printing, and that is where the money is made. The banks of the country send in to the Treasury or Federal Reserve Banks all of the mutilated and worn out bills they get and these are destroyed. Over two million four hundred thousand pounds of such money is destroyed and replaced every year, at a cost of over four million dollars. In order to reduce the enormous expense of printing new money, the government is trying to reduce the different varieties of bills, now numbering thirty-nine, to eleven, and is also trying to cut down the size of the bills. The saving on each bill, by the above mentioned changes, would be inconsiderable, but in the aggregate the reduced expense would be great. Government experts have perfected many machines with which to test our paper money, and the results of these tests have increased the life of each bill. Even now however, the life of the average one dollar bill is only six months. A folding test machine, a bursting test machine and a rubbing machine are some of the devices used to stimulate the wear and tear on the bill, and the result of each test is tabulated and studied and new methods of making the money are devised. The special currency paper used will not break until exposed to about 2000 foldings. Efforts are being made to armour the bills against grease and dirt, and the ink used is waterproof. Each bill, or rather the paper before the bill is printed, is bathed in glue to cement the fibers, and then the paper is sprayed with a formaldehyde solution which produces the dirt. resisting coating. Even with all the resources of science at its command the govern. ment is spending more money each year to replace our worn out currency, but at that, if we wear it out quicker it is surely an indication we are using more money than ever before, and reflects an increasing prosperity over the whole country.
