Transcript o/l delightful porck with, red ceda.r slurries *-^ Insist on R,le-Grade ,„TlW^ Red Cedar Shingles rorewora THIS volume is published in pursuance of a policy to nourish and conserve the use of the Red Cedar Shingle as the most practical and beautiful exterior covering for the home. You will find in its pages many wholesome, meaningful ideas to aid you in both the selection and building of a distinctive home. And of major importance to you also, before you build, is the Association's Inspection Bureau and its adoption of the registered trade-mark "RITE-GRADE Inspected" so that you can identify and specify this reliable Red Cedar Shingle. The "RITE-GRADE Inspected" trade mark on a bundle of shingles, irrespective of the brand, name or grade under which sold, means full value in that bundle. It means that the Association has inspected and O. K.'d them for quality, for selection, for thickness, for size, for grain; in a word it means a SERVICEABLE SHINGLE AS SOLD—true to specification. We advise that you always demand "RITE-GRADE Inspected" and you will then get the most reliable shingle that a thoroughly organized, well-meaning Association can offer. "RITE-GRADE Inspected" is meant not only to protect you, but to protect the great Red Cedar interests—we want and need the building world's good word. Red Cedar Shingles are famous for their durability, as durable almost as copper. They stand and have stood the test of the elements since the Astoria party landed on the Columbia River in 1811; since the Hudson Bay Company established their settlement buildings on Puget Sound in 1833. There are in evidence today cedar planks in perfect state of preservation made in the eighteenth century with stone axes by the Indians of Tatoosh Island, Washington. These planks gave them shelter; gave them homes. They are as good today without paint, stain or up-keep as the day they were first used. Some of these primitive houses may still be seen, buffeted by the storms of the Pacific Ocean. Others in sections can be viewed in the Museum of the University of Washington, Seattle.
