Ste.-1. entirely agree with your correspondent, the Rector of St. Paul's Cray, as regards the impossibility of building schools at a reasonable price if every county or other architect is allowed to insist upon his own design. Certainly in this way the schools may. and probably will. be eventually built hut the urgent need for them now will not be met.

There is a system in Holland today whereby, with a standard design and an order for say 300 schools. these could be manufactured and erected within one year. Blocks of flats four stories high are being erected now by this system of prefabricated concrete, in Rotterdam, at the rate of one a day with four men and crane.

Mass factory production and erection by unskilled labour is the only solution to the world shortage of dwellings. schools, factories, etc.

I enclose my card and will go into the question of finding a Catholic Wimpey.
