CHOSEN because of its beauty and permanence, Vermont Marble gives the new Red Cross Memorial Building in Washington the dignity and serenity of all things ageless and everlasting. The facade of this impressive memorial to the heroic American women who served the nation in the World War is illus trated above. As in public monuments, Vermont Marble is being increasingly used for private family mausoleums, as shown at the right. Vermont Mar ble is the nation's memory stone. Memorials in Vermont Marble have unusual dura bility because they resist the wearing effects of climatic conditions - of which the most destructive, during the course of centuries, is moisture. Govern mental Bulletins show that Vermont Marble absorbs only about one-third as much water as the average of other memorial stones.
