The temporary roofing which was to have been placed for a few months on the tower of Section "A" of the new Publishing House, as announced in this column a few weeks ago, was never erected. A way was found to protect the machinery in the penthouse and save the expense of a temporary roof.

The garden wall at the Massachusetts Avenue end of the building is nearing completion. It is topped by inserts of balusters like those fronting the narrow balcony opening into the garden from the Reception Room and those between the monolithic pillars over the main entrance. The wall makes a charming addition to the structure, and one can visualize a lovely garden inside, shut out from the city noise and stir and affording to visitors at the Publishing House a peaceful spot for meditation.
