The headquarters of the Portland Cement Association in Chicago-a modern five-story structure built of concrete throughout. t.. to Improve and Extend the Uses of Concrete" PORTLAND Cement Concrete has brought to fulfillment many of the dreams of America's builders. Networks of even-surfaced roads-giant dams diverting Nature's forces to the use of man towering structures combining safety with beauty and utility-all these are monuments to the almost endless possibilities of concrete. For many years the Portland Cement Asso ciation has devoted its efforts to finding the facts about concrete and placing them in the hands of the user-thus enabling him to get greater value out of his construction dollar. The work of the Association-far-reaching in its benefits-is made possible solely through the support of the eighty-four man ufacturers of portland cement who comprise its membership.
