$390 million of additional spending.
The Army's Construction Division set
up a board of eminent experts appointed
by Benedict Crowell, then acting-secretary of war. CPIA's Reum was appointed
to the board.
The board recommended the use of the
"cost plus sliding scale of fixed fee" contract.
The fixed fee ranged from 1.75 percent for
large contracts up to 7 percent for projects
of $100,000 or less. The fixed fee prevented
contractors from running up labor charges
and paying extravagantly for materials. It
also allowed the "government to push jobs
at any speed it may elect" and to "pay only
what the work actually costs," The Times
reported.
First specifications. The April 1918 issue
of The Plasterer included the plaster recommendations sent to Army Major H.
J. Burt of the construction division of the
Quartermaster's Corps, N.A.
Reum and McGivern outlined specifications for lath and plastering construction.
They also recommended the Army use
the cost plus contract method. This type
of contract, mentioned earlier, could help
control costs and ensure that specialized
trades worked on government projects.
Reum and McGivern's work was invaluable.
Many government buildings originally had
little work specified for plasterers. Reum and
McGivern changed the outcome favorably

for the plastering trade.

Second annual convention. The Second
Annual Convention of the Contracting
Plasterers' International Association was
held in Chicago, Sept. 15-26, 1919. Some
60 delegates were present-an increase from
26 the prior year. Cities represented included
Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Detroit,
Cincinnati, Louisville, St. Louis, Chicago,
Milwaukee, Denver, Cleveland, Tulsa, New
Orleans, Indianapolis, Washington, D. C.,
Akron and Youngstown, Ohio.
"A goodly portion of the delegates present
were once members of our organization, and
at first glance the convention would remind
an old-timer of past [union] conventions,"

New Industry Federation Includes CPIA
CPIA President Oscar A. Reum shared in the
formation of the National Federation of Building
Industries. Federation attendees sent a telegram
to President Woodrow Wilson in July 1918: "We
are assembled to devise an instrumentality
through which the building industry may give
united and effective aid [to the government],"
they wrote. A new era of government
partnership with big business had begun.
