Items of Interest

As this item goes to press the reënforced concrete footings in the entire new Publishing House are finished. The wooden shoring has been taken off the Press Room walls, so that one can now gain an idea of the room's finished appearance. By the time this item is printed, some of the wooden forms for the concrete walls of the fourth floor of "B" Section will have been erected.

The heating and ventilating contracts, very important to the successful completion of the building, have recently been let. As was announced in The Christian Science Monitor a few weeks ago, the new Publishing House, as well as other adjacent Church properties, including The Mother Church edifice itself, will be heated, beginning a year hence, by The Edison Electric Illuminating Company, which will sell to The Mother Church steam as well as electricity. The arrangement to purchase steam has made unnecessary the building of a service plant at the corner of Clearway and Dalton Streets, as heretofore planned, and only a substation is required in the basement of the Publishing House through which distribution of steam and electricity is to be made. The radiators for the Publishing House will be of the concealed type, equipped with ventilating ducts which will operate in summer independent of the radiators. Humidification is to be provided for the Press Room and other rooms where paper is handled, and where a proper content of air moisture is a requirement.
