Remixes Concrete 

When materials have passed through mixing process 
once, and come to discharging side of the drum, 
the reversed discharge chute sprays them back to 
the charging side for repeated trips through the 5- 
action, remixing process. This spraying-showering 
action, at the same time prevents separation of aggre- 
gate according to size. To the last shovelful of every 
batch, Koehring-mixed concrete is uniform, re-mixed 
concrete — dominant strength concrete— and to every 
last casting and bearing, the Koehring is the heavy 
duty mixer of trouble-proof, long service life.

FIVE BILLIONS FOR BLILDING IN 
1924 IS PREDICTION 



In 1924 the United States as a whole 
will witness the building oJ $5,560,367,- 
700 worth of new structures of every 
kind, according- to a survey of national 
construction recently completed by the 
Southern California chapter, Associated 
General Contractors of America. 

This estimate was obtained from the 
office of the le^ading architectural firms 
throughout the country and has been 
subdivided principally under twenty- 
two classifications. They are as fol- 
lows: 

Automotives, $146,322,100; banks, 
$201,165,200; apartments, $586,850,000; 
apartment hotels, $357,368,000; clubs, 
$313,837,100; community buildings, 
memorials, $81,802,800; dwellings. $20,- 
000 or under, $227,251,000; dwelling of 
value from $20,000 to $50,000,- $114,- 
18!:,500; dwellings, $50,000 or over, $75,- 
559,400; hotels, $635,394,600; churches, 
$289,174,290; hospitals, $311,168,700; In- 
dustrial buildings, $414,113,000; office 
buildings, $147,144,000; schools, $62,- 
258,300; stores, $140,194,400; theatres, 
$179,144,000; welfare houses and Y. M. 
C. A. buildings, $46,645,200. 



Bricklayers Top Crafts in 220273 n(vcj\^' 

Wage Gains — Material Costs Shown 



Bricklayers lead the field of labor in 
wage increases gained in the last half 
century. The fact is shown in a report 
of a survey of wages and costs in the 
construction industry, covering a period 
of 50 years, just made public by Engi- 
neering News-Record of New York. In 
consistent and steady gains, the car- 
penters come second to the bricklayers. 

Common labor is shown to have 
achieved the least proportion of wage 
gains, and, being least organized, is 
shown to be the most sensitive of all 
labor elements to the ups and downs of 
supply and demand. The peak of high 
wages for common laborers came in 
1921, when they earned 77 cents per 
hour on the basis of an eight-hour day. 
Today they are rated at 68% cents. 

Bricklayers are rated today at $1.50 
an hour, for an eight-hour day. The 
1924 rate for carpenters is $1.31% an 
hour. 

In 1874, bricklayers received 43 cents 
an hour. In 1872, these workmen 
started the eight-hour day and were 
the first of the major trades to work on 
that basis. Carpenters got 23 cents an 
hour in 1874. They did not get the 
eight-hour day until 1890. Common 
laborers in 1874 worked ten hours a 
day and received 14 cents an hour. 

Common building bricks show the 
greatest measure of cost increase, as 
outlined in the survey. In 1874, the 
bricks stood at $7.41 per thousand. The 
1924 cost is $20. Pig iron. No. 1 Foun- 
dray, Anthracite, cost $30.25 per gross 



ton half a century ago. Today it is 
rated at $24 and $25. Portland cement 
when first placed on the market in 1879 
was higher in price than it is today, 
rating at $2.70 per barrel then and 
$2.55 now. In 1879, however, cement 
■was sold in wooden barrels as com- 
pared with the present system of call- 
ing four 94-pound sacks a barrel of 
cement. 

Pine lumber costs now are more 
than double those of 50 years ago. In 
1874, long-leaf yellow pine boards, 1x12 
inches, were $26 per thousand feet. To- 
day long-leaf yellow pine boards 1x12 
inches, 20 feet, sell at $64 a thousand 
feet for No. 1 common. In 1912, the 
survey shows, pine lumber prices had 
reached a point not touched again 
until 1918. The slump, which reached 
its lowest point between 1914 and 1915, 
was caused by the opening of the Pan- 
ama canal, which made it possible for 
the Douglasfir shippers on the west 
coast to send their lowest priced lum- 
ber through to the Atlantic seaboard in 
competition with southern pine. 

Structural steel, another construction 
Item covered in the survey, was held at 
$1.20 per 100 pounds, f. o. b. Pittsburgh, 
in 1894, and even as late as 1913 was 
only $1.50. Today, it is listed at $2.25. 

Sources quoted in the survey report 
are the Aldrich report of the senate 
finance committee, 1893; bureau of 
labor statistics and the files of Engi- 
neering News-Records. 



What is the Federal Highway Act? 



The Federal highway act, approved 
November 9, 1921, provided for the 
selection by the State highway depart- 
ments of a system of highways not to 
exceed 7 per cent of the total high- 
way mileage ot each State. Upon this 
system, all apportionments of Federal 
aid are to be expended. The system 
is to be divided into two classes, 
primary and secondary, of which the 
former are not to exceed three- 
sevenths of the total, the remainder to 
be of the latter class. The Secretary 
of Agriculture was given authority to 
approve in whole or in part the sys- 
tem as designated by the State high- 
way departments or to require modi- 
fications or revisions thereof. 

The total mileage of existing high- 
ways certified by the States was 2,- 
866,061 miles. The States designated 
by maps and route description, systems 
of main roads totaling in mileage not 
more than 7 per cent of the certified 
mileage. The systems for groups of 
adjoining States were reviewed by rep- 
resentatives of the States and of the 
Bureau of Public Roads meeting in a 
series of conferences for the principal 
purpose of connecting the systems at 
State lines. In this way the entire 
system was co-ordinated and recom- 
mended to the Secretary of Agriculture 
by the Bureau of Public Roads. The 
system as approved by the Secretary of 
Agriculture and represented by the 
map published November 1, 1923, in- 



cludes 168.881 miles which is 5.9 per 
cent of the certified mileage. 

Up to March 1 the Federal-aid high- 
ways which had been completed since 
the passage of the Federal-aid road 
act in 1916 totaled 33,036 miles, and 
13,800 miles were under construction 
and reported as 59 per cent complete. 
The total of roads completed and un- 
der construction amounted therefore to 
46,836 miles. Of the mileage reported 
as completed on February 26, 6307 miles 
had been completed during the current 
fiscal year. All but a very small per- 
centage of this mileage is on the Fed- 
eral-aid highway system as now 
established. 

In addition to the roads of the sys- 
tem improved with Federal aid, parts 
of it have been improved without Fed- 
eral assistance. A careful study is be- 
ing made of the improvement status of 
the system and an approximate esti- 
mate based upon these incomplete 
studies is that at the end of the year 
there were about 60,000 miles of sur- 
faced roads and 8700 miles graded, 
which leaves nearly 110,000 miles yet 
to be surfaced. 

To bring this system up to service- 
able standards, therefore, within the 
full decade ahead, will mean a surfac- 
ing program of about 11,000 miles for 
each of the 10 years; this in addition to 
the additions to the system, the sepa- 
ration of grade crossings, reconstruc- 
tion, and much other work necessary.

DEMAND FOR REDWOOD LUMBER 
ON INCREASE 



AVORK IN 



Seven and a half million dollars a 
year comes to California for redwood 
lumber. Five thousand cars are ship- 
ped out of the State, each car carrying 
an average of 2.5.000 feet of redwood 
lumber, which is worth ?60 a thousand 
or $1500 a car. 

This demand for redwood lumber is 
increasing every year, and while local- 
ly a huge amount is used for building 
p'urposes, it is the belief of the red- 
wood manufacturers that as the re- 
markable qualities of redwood become 
generally known and its durability and 
heautv become recoginzed. the spec- 
ialty demand for it will be such that 
the use for building will practically 
cease.

ARCHITECT SUES HOTEL COMPANY 
FOR »17,0<>O FEES 



BUILD HUGE DOCK 



The largest dock in the world is 
being built at Calcutta. The first sec- 
tion of the dock will involve a total 
excavation of forty million cubic feet. 
Work on the wet dock portion has al- 
ready resulted in digging about 31,- 
000,000 cubic feet. 



MARYSVILLE, Tuba Co., Cal.— Suit 
for $17,688 in stock certificates and 
cash has been filed against the Marys- 
ville Hotel Company in superior court 
bv Edward Glass. San Francisco, ar- 
chitect employed by the company to 
draw plans and specifications for the 
new $400,000 hotel to be built here. 

Glass charges that he is entitled to 
his fee now. and has not been paid. 
Through his attorney. Milton A. Na- 
than, San Francisco, he asks a judg- 
ment for the amount. 

A. H. Boulton, president of the hotel 
company, answered the allegations in 
the suit. Boulton said that Glass had 
never fulfilled all of his contract, and 
therefore was not entitled to his fee. 

"We were advised by our attorney, 
Richard Belcher," Boulton said, "that 
the architect had not fulfilled his con- 
tract yet, and therefore is not entitled 
to his fee. When he does we will pay 
him." 

Allegations of Glass that the hotel 
company had imposed unreasonable 
terms in calling for bids for construc- 
tion, which Glass said, kept reputable 
and responsible contractors from bid- 
ding, Boulton characterized as "child- 
ish." , 
The suit was filed with County Clerk 
William M. Strief, and Boulton had not 
consulted with Attorney Belcher when 
he made his statement. 
The suit in part alleges: 
That Glass signed a contract with 
the company on May 25, 1923. fixing his 
lee at six per cent of construction 
costs, which later were fixed at $294,- 
800. The six per cent, which amounted 
to $17,688, was to be paid half in stock 
of the company, and half in cash. 

That afterward, in calling for bids 
on specifications submitted by the ar- 
chitect, the defendants incorporated 
terms and conditions in the announce- 
ment "studiously calculated to prevent 
reliable and reasonable contractors 
from offering bids." 

That the hotel company now refuses 
the bid that was submitted, or any 
other bids, and refuses to proceed with 
erection of the hotel or with the terms 
of the contract. 



MUNY OWNERSHIP PAYS 



The present government of Mexico 
is stable and will protect and en- 
courage American capital invested m 
the development of the natural re- 
sources of that country, according to 
V W. Bennett, industrial agent for the 
Southern Pacific of Mexico, a recent 
San Francisco visitor. The Southern 
Pacific of Mexico is carrying on a 
$15,000,000 construction and improve- 
ment program which includes the 
building of 110 miles of standard gauge 
track from Tepic on the Gulf of San 
Bias, to La Quemada east of the Costal 
mountains. This line, when completed, 
will provide a through West Coast 
line to Mexico City. 



Profits from the electrical depart- 
ment of the city of Redding during the 
last two and a half years, the length 
of time the city has owned the dis- 
tributing plant, have amounted to $54.- 
242.03. according to statistics com- 
piled by City Clerk Leslie Engram. 

These figures do not include $5f95 in- 
terest on bonds paid out of the re- 
ceipts of the lighting department, nor 
$2000 used in redemption of the $40.- 
000 bonds issued to pay for the system. 

The use of the fund has been ac- 
counted for by spending $10,000 in re- 
funding a loan for the purchase of the 
plant. $5127 refunded to citizens on ad- 
vance payments for power; paving in 
the southern part of the city to con- 
nect with the Pacific highway; $15.-

of the city and in front of city prop- 
erty, $22,650, with additions and im- 
provements amounting to $15,000 ap- 
proximately.

Architects to Feature Exhibit 

In New York City Next Year 



The r.uilrting Trades will have a 
vital interest in a display of architec- 
ture and architectural accessories that 
now is being organized with the idea 
of familiarizing architects as well as 
Ihe general public with the remarkable 
a<:hievemfents of our twentieth century 
manufacturers of building materials 
and decorative objects useful in home 
making. 

The arts and trades allied to archi- 
tecture will be illustrated by exhibits 
to be shown at the Architectural and 
Allied Arts Exposition, to be held 
April 20 to May 2. 1B25, in New York 
Citv. under the auspices of the Ameri- 
can Institute of Architects and the Ar- 
chitectural League of New York. 

The Annual Convention of the Ameri- 
can Institute of Architects, embracing 
nfly-two chapters throughout the 
United States, will be held in New 
York during the period of the exhibi- 
tion, and will convene in session in the 
important space devoted to architec- 
ture and the allied arts. At the same 
time the fortieth annual exhibition of 
the Architectural League of New York, 
the pre-eminent annual review of ar- 
chitecture, mural painting, sculpture, 
and all the allied arts and trades, will 
be held in galleries created at the ex- 
hibition for this purpose. 

In view of the fact that delegates 
from every chapter of the American 
Institute and from every state in the 
Union will be present, at what un- 
doubtedly will be the most important 
convention of the profession ever as- 
sembled in this country, it is proposed 
to bring together on this occasion the 
largest, most representative, and most 
carefully selected series of architect- 
ural and building exhibits ever shown 
in the United States. This superb dis- 
play of materials used in the construc- 
tion and embellishment of our apart- 
ments, houses, and public buildings 
will present adequately all the im- 
portant varieties of materials useful 
for exterior or interior fitting out of 
American homes. 

To assure representation in this com- 
plete and comprehensive display of all 
varieties of materials employed m 



cr.ating finished buildings, the invi- 
tation to participate is extended to 
manufacturers, producers, jobbers, and 
all others of established reputation en- 
gaged in the sale and distribution of 
materials and utilities, and to firms 
whose activities include interior and 
exterior decoration and every variety 
of manufactured articles of utility for 
architects or discriminating home 
makers. 

The comprehensive nature of the en- 
terprise therefore will include stone, 
marble, stucco, fine wood, mantels, fur- 
niture, decorative objects of art, paints, 
painted finishes, wall coverings, tiles, 
and flooring. In addition, space will be 
set apart for practical accsssories, such 
as plumbing fixtures, piping, kitchen 
and pantry equipment, and other nec- 
essities in modern life. Structural 
features like columns, beams, steel 
work, tubing, casings, and other ma- 
terials entering into building construc- 
tion will find a place in a carefully 
thought out educational display. 

The exhibition will follow through- 
out the standards set by the Amerioon 
Institute of Architects and by the Ar- 
chitectural League of New York, and 
will furnish an exceptional educational 
opportunity to the public by estab- 
lishing under one roof a visual contact 
with the latest devices and materials 
entering into the construction of the 
home and its deecorative embellish- 
ment. This unique exposition will be 
correspondingly instructive to the 
building trades and the technical pro- 
fession, tending to develop a better un- 
derstanding through the creation of an 
opportunity for a thoroughly compre- 
hensive survey of the latest appliances 
which the manufacturers of America 
have created and placed at the disposal 
of the building industry. 

The general management, business 
details, building design, construction, 
and exhibition administration will be 
directed by Charles H. Green, who is 
well known for his promotion of other 
educational exhibitions in which 
valuable results have been obtained for 
the varied industries. 



MONTEREY', Monterey Co., Cal. — Of- 
ficers and directors were nominated 
for the coming year by the Monterey 
County Builders' Association which 
met recently at the Knights of Pythias 
Hall. Plans were also launched for a 
banquet to be held at the next meet- 
ing of the association, July 23, in 
Pacific Grove.

RICHMOND BUILDING LAW CHANGE 
DELAYED 

RICHMOND, Contra Costa Co., Cal. — 
Amendment to the local building or- 
dinance to allow the construction or 
corrugated iron buildings in the busi- 
ness district, as asked by the Marylarid 
Metal Building Company, was laid 
over one week by the city council. A 
protest against the passing of such an 
ordinance was lodged in a communi- 
cation from the Builders' Exchange, 
which was signed by L. C. Dexter, sec- 
retary. Such buildings in the bus'nf|s 
district would be unsightly, the Build-

countered during the War In the pro- 
duotlDn oC iiuanlltles of Interchange- 
able ammunition, during the ejirllest 
Htagi's of which due to a lack of ade- 
i|uate gaping systems, groat losses and 
gerious delays were experienced. It 
was only after the Introduction of 
such a gaging system that enormous 
mass production of acceptable material 
became possible. Serious consideration 
Is now being given to this same prob- 
lem as a means of furthering mass 
production throughout the mechanical 
Industries, and a representative tech- 
nical committee Is now developing a 
uniform gaging system to this end, 
under the auspices of the American 
ICnginecring Standards Committee. 

In connection with the standard, the 
si)onsors are issuing two publications: 
one for the use of fire chiefs and su- 
perintendent.s of water works, ex- 
plaining In simple terms the methods 
of securing complete interchange- 
ability, through the use of inspection 
gages: and the other, for the guidance 
of manufacturers. 

The experience of cities which have 
changed over from non-standard to 
standard couplings has shown that the 
savings resulting from use of standard 
couplings, in the course of a few 
years more than pays for the cost of 
the change, to say nothing of the. re- 
duction of fire hazards. 

Notwithstanding the great amount of 
work which has been accomplished by 
the organizations already mentioned 
and by numerous others, such as the 
Bureau of Standards, and the Chamber 
of Commerce of the U. S. A., much yet 
remains to be done that will require 
continued and united effort. Commer- 
cial and civic organizations have a very 
real responsibility in bringing about 
the adoption of the American National 
Screw Thread for Fire Hose Couplings 
by their own cities and towns, where 
assistance of other fire departments 
may at any time be sorely needed. 



CLAIM FILLINGS FOR OVERCHARGE 
AGAIXST RAIL CARRIERS 



Th.5 Traffic Bureau of the San Fran- 
cisco Chamber of Commerce is direct- 
ing the attention of all local shippers 
to the amendment to the transportation 
act of 1920 which permits shippers 
three years' time in which to file claim 
for refund or suit for recovery on 
overcharge claims against the rail 
carriers. 

The transportation act of 1920 al- 
lowed the carriers three years to file 
claim or suit against the shipper for 
collection of undercharge and al- 
lowed the shipper only two years in 
which to file suit against the carriers 
for collection of overcharges. This 
amendment to the act now equalizes the 
time of both shipper and carrier to 
commence action. 

The amendment, as passed by Con- 
gress, provides that shippers may file 
claim with the Interstate Commerce 
Commission or bring suit within six 
months after June 7, 1924, the date on 
which the bill was signed by the 
I'resident, on all claims which ac- 
crued on or after March 1, 1920. 



W"ESTINGHOl SE GETS JAPANESE

amounting to $1,. 500, 000 with the West- 
inghouse Electric & Manufacturing 
Company. The order includes six 75- 
ton, 1200 hp locomotives and two 
10214-ton, 1800 hp. locomotives for op- 
eration at 1500 volts. The eight loco-

Agreement on Lumber Scale 

Averts Strike in Fresno 



Peace and harmony were restored to 
the building industry of Fresno June 
24, when the joint conference board 
consisting of five representatives from 
both the Fresno Builders' Exchange 
and Fresno Building Trades Council 
signed a working agreement covering 
the working rules which shall govern 
both the employer and employe in the 
industry, and the wages for the various 
crafts for the coming year. 

The agreement Is now in effect, and 
it is practically a renewal of the old 
agreement adopted in 1922 and ob- 
served until midnight on June 16, with 
the exception of an amended section. 

The language of this section has 
been cleared up and no"w permits 
either of the parties to the agreement 
to open negotiations through the con- 
ference board looking toward a new 
wage scale. 

The language of the amended section 
is worded as follo\%^s: 

"The. wage scale now being paid in 
Fresno in the building industry shall 
continue to be paid hereafter unless 
changes in the wage scale are agreed 
to by the joint conference board, which 
board shall have the sole power to 
make such change. 

"However, it is mutually agreed that 
either of the parties to this agreement 
may at any time it desires open nego- 
tiations through the joint conference 
board, looking toward a new wage 
scale." 

Original Section 

The original section covering this 
point read as follows; 

"The present existing wage scale 
now being paid in the building in- 
dustry in Fresno shall be continued 
during the life of this agreement, with 
the understanding, however, that if 
conditions arise during the life of this 
agreement which tend to jeopardize the 
building industry in this community, 
then the joint conference board shall 
have the power to effect readjustment 
consistent with conditions then pre- 
vailing." 

The new agreement has been ap- 
proved by both the Valley Industrial 



Association and the lumbermen of the 
city, whose action in announcing a 
reduction in wages of lumber yard 
laborers and teamsters to the extent of 
one dollar a day threatened industrial 
strife here. 

Discontinuation of the old agree- 
ment on Monday, June 16, at midnight, 
resulted from a deadlock reached by 
the conference board over a request by 
the Builders' Exchange group for an 
extension of 60 days in which to make 
a survey of conditions. The building 
trades representatives asked for an 
immediate signing of the agreement. 
This met with refusal and so negotia- 
tions were discontinued. 

On the following day the lumber- 
men announced the cut in wages of 
their employes. 

The conference board was called into 
session Saturday, June 21, after a pro- 
posal for arbitration had been pre- 
sented by the industrial association. 
Terms outlined by the board Saturday 
met with the approval of both factions 
concerned and resulted in the reaching 
of the agreement, which is known as 
the Fresno plan. 

The wage scale in effect for the 
coming year under the agreement fol- 
lows: 

Plumbers .' f 9.25

STATE SELLS LAST OF RO.AD BONDS 
VOTED FOUR TEARS AGO 



MOTOR STAGE TRAFFIC IN CALI- 
FORNIA SHOAVN 



SACRAMENTO. Cal. — The last block 
of state highway bonds remaining 
from a bond issue of $40,000,000 voted 
four years ago was sold today by State 
Treaturer Charles G. Johnson to a 
syndicate of eight members at a pre- 
mium of $1S1,500. The block, consisting 
of $3,000,000 worth of bonds bearing 
interest at 4% per cent, was sold to 
the following firms comprising the 
syndicate; Anglo-London and Paris 
Company of San Francisco; Bank of 
Italy; Eldredge and Company; New 
York; First National Bank of New 
York; Kissel Kinnicutt and Company, 
New York; Stevenson, Perry, Stacy Co., 
New York; Detroit Company, New York 
and Schwacher & Company, San Fran- 
cisco. 



According to a recent report of the 
State Railroad Commission of Califor- 
nia, 21,221,928 passengers were trans- 
ported by common carriers using motor 
transportation during 1922. A large 
portion of this traffic is over state 
highways . The revenues of these 
carriers from purely motor operations 
totaled $15,549,349 and their operating 
expenses were $14,322,725. Reports filed 
with the commission showed 1616 pas- 
senger cars, 959 freight cars and 335 
other pieces of equipment in use. In- 
cluding leased vehicles and equip- 
ment not reported by small lines, the 
commission estimates 3300 cars, trucks, 
and trailers devoted to cominon car- 
rier purposes in California. 



ANOTHER USE FOR BRICK 



M. F. GALE PASSES AWAY 



A supporter of a local football team

Final Payment on Government Contracts is Cause 

for Comment 



The following editorial, under the 
caption •■Contractor Soaked Again 
was published in the June 5 issue of 
the U S. Government Advertiser, and 
will prove of interest to contractors 
engaged in construction work for ine 
Federal Government; 

The enactment of the Madden bill by 
this Congress will not be necessary m 
so far as the Navy Department is con- 
cerned, judging from the act.on taken 
by the Secretary of the Navy, Curtis D. 
Wilbur, in a recent conference v/Uh the 
comptroller general on the quesUon of 
who had jurisdiction to make final iia> 
ments under contracts containing a 
liquidated damage clause. As a- "S"" 
of this conference an agreement was 
reached whereby the Navy Depa trneT,t 
surrendered to the general c'coounting 
office all the jurisdiction it Pof ^^ff^ 
over consideration of the cause of delay 
in delivery of supplies or the comp.e- 
tion of construction contracts as weil 
as the payment of amounts retained 
from cur'^ent payments under ^ontracts 
pending final settlement of the ques- 
tion of delays. 

Contracts tor the delivery ■^f supplies 
and for the construction of "J-''!'^- t"!''"- 
ings, machinery, etc., heretofore exe- 
cuted by the Navy Department, have, 
?n all cases, contained ^laa^^^s provid- 
ing for liquidated damages for delay m 
delivery or delay in completion und an 
additional clause which permitted 'ne 
Navy Department to retain 10 per ceu. 
of each and every payment made under 
?he contract pending final completion 
of delivery or construction. U has 
heretofore been the practice of the of- 
ficials of the Navy Department, prmci- 
palty those in control of the activities 
of the bureau of supplies and accounts 
bureau of yards and docks and bureau 
of construction and repair to deter- 
mine whether the cause of delay was 
attributed to the Government and to 
make the final payments under con- 
Tracts as the result of ^^f^/^^'^JS'?^; 
tion. Such final payment included the 
io per cent retained from the con- 
tractor when each payment was made 
less amount of liquidated damages as- 
sessed, and, of course, was an item of 
considerable importance to the inai 
vidual contractor. This practice has 
been abandoned by the Secretary of the 
Navy and it will now be impossible for 
any contractor to receive payment ot 
the amounts retained from Payments 
made until after an inspection by the 
Comptroller general of all the evidence 
connected with the execution of the 
contract, including the cause of delay, 
of any This surrender of jurisdiction 
fs made by the Secretary of the Navy 
in a recent communication to the comp- 
troller general, wherein is announced 
the points conceded by the Secretary of 
the Navy to the comptroller general as 
a result of the settlement of the contro- 
versy which had raged for some time 
between the comptroller general and 
the Navy Department during the period 
Mr. Edwin Denby was Secretary of the 
Navy. 

The points involved in contracts con- 
taining liquidated damage clauses con- 
ceded by the secretary of the Navy to 
be under the jurisdiction of the comp- 
troller general may be summarized as 
follows; 

That contracts for supplies for the 

l^'Zll's^Z '\TAiT' IK^uidfted 
damage cTat^se°?'but that all construc- 
rfon contracts should contain such 
clauses that when contracts executed 
bv the Navy Department do contain 
muidlted damage clauses the Navy 



Department will not Pay . to the con 
tractor the amount retained by the 
Government under the terms of the 
contract pending final completion of 
?he work or the delivery in any case 
where there is any indication of a de- 
lay Ind liquidated damages may possi- 
bly hav" accrued; that in such cases 
tie N-Ivy Department will transmit to 
the general accounting office all tne 
evidence in the files of that department 
Tnd the voucher covering the final pay- 
ment for determination by the comp- 
troller general as to whether or not the 
delay was excusable under the terms 
of the contract and has to whether or 
not anv money retained by the Govern- 
menrshould be paid to the contractor 
(It is understood that the Secretary of 
the Navy is permitted under the agree- 
ment to make such recommendation as 
he may deem proper to the comptroller 
eeneral when transmitting the vouch- 
frs and evidence for final settlement 
but it is apparent to all who have had 
previous experience with the comp- 
troller general that such recommenda- 
Uons will receive scant consideration 
when the settlement is made b> the 
comptroller general and therefore this 
concession mav be eliminated from 
coSsfderaUon 6f the effect the agree- 
ment may have on the rights of con- 
tactors ) That if the Navy Depart- 
ment has decided that there should be 
"o deduction from the contract price 
on account of delay in delivery or de- 
lay in completion because the delay 
was occasioned by the Government and 
was not the fault of the contractor the 
Navy Department nevertheless will not 
make payment of the 10 per cent or 
Tuch otheramount as may have been 
detained but will advise the contractor 
that if he wants to receive payment of 
suck retained amount he will have to 
submit his voucher to the general 
Icc^nting office for payment thereof 
and that the Navy Department agrees 
fo submit all evidence in its possession 
to the general accounting office for its 
cSnsidelation in determining whether 
or not any amount is due the con- 
tractor- that when the Navy Depart- 
ment entertains any doubt as to the 
legality of any payment under a con- 
truction contract that preliminary bills 
may be paid so that the contractor may 
^e '^luUed into a position of security 
which may induce him to complete the 
work but the bills for final payment 
on completion of the work of service 
will be referred to the general account- 
ing office for such instructions as the 
comptroller general may desire to give 
the secretary of the Navy or for direct 
settlement by the general accounting 
office. 



The above agreement is an exhibition 
of the most absolute surrender by an 
administrative department of this Gov- 
ernment to the general accounting of- 
fice of its rights and legal prerogatives 
that has so far come to our notice, it 
is an admission that the officials and 
employees of the Navy Department ara 
not to be trusted with the settlemerit 
of any contract which contains a liqui- 
dated damage cause. It is not evident 
from our information whether the Sec- 
retary of the Navy has arrived at thl& 
conclusion regarding his force as a re- 
sult of ignorance or crookedness on 
their part .It is certain, however, that 
it could only be one of these causes, 
ignorance of the law governing con- 
tractual relations between the Govern- 
ment and its citizens, or crookedness 
on the part of the officials in making 
settlements with contractors, that 
would cause the present Secretary of 
the Navy, a man renowned for his legal 
knowledge, to take such drastic and 
unprecedented action. Does the Secre- 
tary of the Navy realize that he has 
agreed to submit every action he taKes 



under a contract which contains a 
liquidated damage clause to the comp- 
troller general for review? Does he 
realize that he has abandoned the con- 
tractors who have been loyal to the 
Xavv Department and who have played 
fair in their dealings with that depart- 
ment to the jurisdiction of an autocrat, 
who refuses to recognize even the de- 
cisions of the Supreme Court of this 
United States as binding on him in de- 
termining questions submitted for his 
consideration? Does he realize that he 
has announced to the world that his 
legal force, that is. the legal force ot 
the Navy Department, is not competent 
to correctly solve the legal obligations 
of the Government to its contractors 
under any contract containing a liqui- 
dated damade clause? Why should a 
contractor be lulled into a feeling of 
security that everything is satisfac- 
tory to the party of the second part un- 
der a contract, or It may be under the 
terms of the contract the party of the 
first part, only to have a legal scrap 
to secure payment cast upon him by 
the arbitrary action of the comptroller 
general in refusing to make final pay- 
ment of the retained percentage, al- 
though the Navy Department officials 
have reached the conclusion that the 
contractor is entitled to receive pay- 
ment of such retained percentage? 

There are many other things which 
Mr. Wilbur overlooked when he made 
the above described concessions to the 
comptroller general, but space pre- 
cludes us from reciting them, although 
any attorney could advise Mr. Wilbur 
as to their existence. Suffice it to say 
that, in our opinion, the Navy Depart- 
ment is placed in a position, by this 
surrender of jurisdiction, that it will 
many times wish to escape from. We 
wonder what kind of bait the comp- 
troller general used in his conference 
with Mr. Wilbur that it could have 
succeeded in extracting from a man of 
such eminent legal education and ex- 
perience an agreement whereby he 
surrenders his legal rights to conduct 
the affairs of an important department 
of this Government to another official. 
It is an absolute surrender of legal 
rights no other term fits the transac- 
tion, and the great surprise is that 
the surrender is made by a jurist of 
considerable reputation and renown. 



There is out one avenue of escape 
from the consequences of the action 
taken by the head of the Navy Depart- 
ment as described above. Such escape 
may be accomplished by the Navy De- 
partment's contracting officials re- 
fraining from inserting In any contract 
a clause providing for the deduction of 
liquidated damages, thereby prevent- 
ing the comptroller general from ac- 
quiring jurisdiction under the agree- 
ment made with the Secretary of the 
Navy Any other method of escape 
would necessitate the Secretary of the 
Navy repudiating the agreement, and 
that is not to be expected. The comp- 
troller general can not be censured for 
endeavoring to extend the scope of hia 
authority and thereby maintain his 
war-time force intact, by providing 
new duties for them to perform in lieu 
of those war-time duties which have 
been completed. The Secretary of the 
Navy and his advisors are, however, 
not free from censure in having made 
such an inexcusable concession to the 
comptroller general.

Twenty-six Tons of 



WHITE LEAD 

were used on the magnificent 
BILTMORE HOTEL 



That Pioneer White Lead was specified and used on this mag- 
nificent hotel is merely another instance which emphasizes the 
high esteem in which this product is held by prominent 
architects. 



The patented vacuum clean- 
ing device shoiun here is just 
one reason why Pioneer 
Halite Lead is always whit- 
er than other Old Dutch 
Process White Leads. This 
device is an exclusive Fuller 
feature, and insures even the 
finest particles of impurities

.SPKCIFICATIONS FOR, CA.ST IRON 
PIPE 



At a conference in New York on 
June 5th, it was decided that there 
should be undertaken a general pro- 
gram of unifying existing specifica- 
tions for cast iron pipe into a con- 
sistent set of nationally recognized 
specifications. 

Consideration of the subject was in- 
troduced by a comprehensive paper by 
Mr. W. G. Hammerstrom, which out- 
lined tile present practice, not only of 
various organizations who have issued 
formal specifications, such as the 
American Water Works Association, 
The American Ga^ Association and the 
American Society for Testing Mater- 
ials, but indicated the more usual com- 
mercial departures from and exten- 
sions of these standards. Mr. Hammer- 
strom also outlined the foreign prac- 
tice, with particular reference to the 
work of the British, Ji"rench and Ger- 
man x.*ast iron pipe industries. 

After a very thorough discussion of 
the various problems concerned in the 
proposal to bring about national uni- 
formity in the industry, agreement 
was reached on the following" scope for 
this work: 

Unification and development of spec- 
ifications for cast iron pipe, including: 
materials; dimensions; pressure 

ratings: metliods of manufacture, in- 



iluding such new developments as cen- 
trifugal casting, in so far as they may 
be necessary to secure satisfactory re- 
sults in preparation of workable speci- 
fications; elimination of unnecessary 
sizes and varieties; consideration of the 
possibility of developing a co-ordinated 
scheme of metallic pipe and fittings ap- 
plicable to all common mediums, (pos- 
sibly along the lines of the work being 
carried on in Europe on the same sub- 
ject); and methods of making up joints 
in so far as they are determining as to 
the dimensional design of cast iron 
pipe. 

The types of cast iron pipe under 
standardization are to include: (a) 
Flanged pipe; (b) Flanged and bell 
mouth fittings and wall castings; (c) 
Pipe elbows, tees, T's, return bends, 
and other fittings not now included in 
standard lists; (d) Cast iron pipe 
threaded for flanges or couplings; (e) 
Soil pipe and other light types of cast 
iron pipe and fittings. 

The work will be co-ordinated with 
that of the existing sectional com- 
mittee on pipe flanges and fittings, 
which is already well advanced under 
the sponsorship of the American So- 
ciety of Mechanical Engineers, the 
Manufacturers Standardization Society 
of the Valve and Fittings Industry and 
the. Heating and Piping Contractors 
National Association. 

It was recommended that the work 
be carried out by a sectional com- 
mittee under the auspices and pro- 
cedure of the American Engineering 
Standards Committee, and under the 
joint sponorship of the American Gas 
Association, the American Water- 
works Association, and the American 
Society for Testing Materials, and for- 
mal recommendations to this effect 
were made to the ABSC. 

At its meeting on June 12th, the 
AESC formally ratified the recommen- 
dations of the Conference, and desig- 
nated the three organizations named as 
joint sponsors for the work. 

The Conference presented a true 
cross-section of the American Cast 
Iron Pipe industry — the men present 
serving as representatives of prac- 
tically every organization concerned 
in the subject.

PREVENTING VARNISH BUBBLES 



Air in the Varnish causes bubbles. 
To prevent this never shake the large 
containing can, and when pouring into 
the brush have the outlet of the con- 
taining can at the top so that the 
varnish will flow from the top as would 
water over the edge of a tilted bucket.

AKL.\ND SCHOOLS CONDEMNED 
BY S. F. ENGINEERS 



I Construction of the McClyraonds and 
l.oosevelt High schools in Oakland is 
ach as should not be allowed In any 
:hool building. 

1 The buildings are a hodge-podge, of 
111 kinds of materials. 
The Are hazard of the stages, with 
paces above, is very great. 
, These were the outstanding features 
f the report of C. H. Snyder and J. D. 
alloway, San Francsico engineers, re- 
fined by the Alameda county grand 
|iry to conduct technical investigations 
'f the two buildings, erected under the 
'-hool bond issue of 1919, which is 
•'nder investigation for the second time 
|y a grand jury. 

I The report was submitted to the 
rand jury and signed and released by 
'le members. 
Commenting on the generaJ conr 
ruction of the two buildings, the en- 
ineers said; 

■ "In the earthquake of 1906, build- 
hgs of this type, as at Stanford Uni- 
versity, Menlo Park, San Jose Normal 
|;hool, and Agnews asylum, were 
verywhere thrown down with loss of 
fe. We are of the opinion that an 
irthquake of equal intensity to that 
t 1906 will wreck the two buildings 
nder revieTV." 

The engineers reported that 
iroughout both structures there is 
la, complete absence of proper bracing 
nd no attempt seems to have been 
liade to make a building that would 
le a coherent whole." It is charged 
lat the building ordinances of the city 
t Oakland have not been followed. 



CHARGE.S OK FOREIGN CEMENT 
DV.MPI.NG ARE PROBED 

Charges that foreign producers of 
cement are dumping cement in the U. 
S. at prices below home market values 
arc being investigated by the Treasury 
Department. McKenzie Moss, assistant 
secretary of the treasury, conducted a 
hearing at Washington June 6 and all 
intbrested parties were asked to file 
briefs by July 15. A decision is ex- 
pected in September. 

Investigations made by H. A. Hay- 
ward, in charge of the dumping law 
section of the custom law division, he 
reported at the hearing, have not been 
finished. Moreover the. evidence is not 
conclusive in all cases. Sales of Nor- 
way cement have been made in the U. 
S. less than the home market, German 
and Swedish manufacturers have re- 
fused to permit an examination of their 
books, Belgian cement has been sold at 
prices higher than the home market, 
and comparisons on cement from Den- 
mark have been difficult because of the 
difference in the sizes of the lots sold 
in the home market and abroad. He 
regarded it as doubtful if there had 
been any dumping of English cement. 

Pacific coast manufacturers were rep- 
resented at the hearing by Jesse P. 
Crawford of Washington, who produced 
a number of invoices in support of the 
charge of dumping. He said shipments 
of cement from Norway had been sold 
at 75 cents per bbl. below the home 
market, cement from Sweden was sold 
at $1.15 below the home market. Bel- 
gium 40 cents and Danish 37 cents be- 
low the home market. Imports during 
the first four months of the year from 
these countries, he said, aggregated 
615,470 bbls. 

Importers of cement denied the 
charges of dumping and said sales 
were made at a small profit and some- 
times even at a loss. 



I'NIFORMITY OF CONCRETE IN 
PAVEMENTS 



LOS ANGELES BUILDING FOR 
MONTH OP JUNE 

Los Angeles building total for June, 
1924, passed the ten million mark. 
During the month the city building de- 
partment issued 3387 permits with an 
estimated valuation of $10,292,524. For 
the same month a year ago the number 
of permits was 5094 and the estimated 
valuation was $15,074,446. For the first 
six months of 1924 the number of per- 
mits issued was 27,748 with an esti- 
mated valuation of $7?, 828, 738, as com- 
pared with 29,678 permits with an esti- 
mated valuation of $93,889,185 for the 
corresponding period in 1923. The 
record by months for 1924 and com- 
parative figures for 1923 follows: 

1924 1923 

January $13,158,526 $11,258,517

June 10,292,542 15,074,446 

Total $78,828,738 $93,889,lf:5 

Class A construction for June 
amounted to $1,221,000, Class C con- 
struction to $1,371,550 and Class D, all 
frame construction, to $5,113,193. 
Housing operations for June were rep- 
resented by 1160 permits for dwellings 
and apartment houses, estimated to 
cost $4,752,087. These buildings will 
provide accommodations for 1717 fam- 
ilies, or an addition of approximately 
7900 to the city's population. 



Information gathered recently in a 
number of states strikingly demon- 
strates the nonuniformity of concrete 
u.sed in pavements. The information 
consisted of the results of compres- 
sion tests on cores drilled from pave- 
ments and it can be safely stated that 
the situation disclosed is reflected in 
general by concrete pavements 
throughout the country. 

For e.xample. in one of the Eastern 
States the extreme range of strengths 
varied from 34 to 174 per cent of the 
average strength. This occurred with 
drilled cores which were five months 
old at the time of test. The minimum 
range for any particular age was from 
86 to 121 per cent of the average 
strength. One of the Middle Western 
States reported on several projects 
an average strength of 4,417 lb. per sq. 
in. with an average minimum of 2,965 
and an average maximum of 6,161 
lb. per sq. in. 

Reflecting on the significance of this 
situation, remarks Public Roads, it 
may be pertinent to inquire which 
would be preferred, a pavement which 
has a range in strength from 2,000 to 
4,000 lb. per sq. in. or one which has 
a range, say, from 2,700 to 3,300 lb. 
per sq. in.? The answer to this ques- 
tion is largely one of design. In the 
former case it is not practicable to 
take advantage of the higher or aver- 
age strengths because there are parts 
of the pavement which yield only 
2.000-lb. concrete. With the more 
nearly constant strength, the design 
can be based with some degree of con- 
fidence on 3,000-lb. concrete. 

In other words, it is desirable from 
both economic and practical stand- 
points that the construction of con- 
crete pavements be so controlled that 
the properties of the concrete will be 
uniform. If this uniformity is ob- 
tained, the design can be based on con- 
crete of predetermined strength and 
the factor of safety required to cover 
the variations in the quality of the 
concrete can be materially reduced. 

It is chiefly with the hope of con- 
trolling the construction in such a 
manner as to give this much-desired 
uniformity of the concrete that the U. 
S. Bureau of Public Roads proposes to 
try out an improved method of con- 
trol on an actual paving project. — En-

A bond election for $16,000,000 for the 
general improvement of the electric 
generating and distributing system of 
the city of Los Angeles is recommend- 
ed to ihat city by the State Railroad 
commission. The recommendation was 
based on an approval of the situation 
which was asked of the commission by 
the public service commission of Los 
Angeles. The request predicted the 
Failure of a proposed bond issue to

ment The bond issue would call for 
ihe erection of adequate substations, 
the extension of the transmission 
lines to the harbor region and the 
ioining of certain of the transmission 
Unes with the system of the Southern 
California Edison Company. It was 
noted in the commission's fecommenda- 
tion that a bond issue election could 
not be held within six months of tlie 
previous bond election, according to 
law unless it was framed as an initia- 
live measure. The committee recom- 
mended that such initiative measure be 
framed at once and the neces.sary pe- 
titions circulated. 



Building permits issued in Portland, 
Ore this year show a large gain over 
the'same period in 1923. During the 
first six months of 1924, there were 
7644 permits issued for total valuatiori 
of $15 032,855. During the same period 
in 1923, there were 6832 permits for 
total valuation of $13,267,240, or a net 
gain for 1924 over 1923 of $1,, 75,615. 
Permits issued during June, 1924, also 
show a large increase over June, 1923 
During June 1924, there Y/I44 2V0 
permits issued for a value of $2,344„iao 
During the corresponding month ot 
1923 there were 1155 permits issued for 
a valuation of $2,166,470, or a net gam 
of $177,820. 

Herman Roloff, superintendent of 
the Sacramento Brick Company's plant 
at Sacramento, died in that city July 1, 
as the result ot a scalding sustained on 
June 13 at the plant when he was in- 
specting a broken steam pipe. Roloft 
was plant superintendent for the past 
twelve years, being appointed to that 
position following the death of its 
former superintendent, Jas. O'Neil. 

Contractors engaged in county im- 
provements are urged, in a resolution 
adopted by the Alameda County Super- 
visors, to purchase all materials and 
supplies used on county work from 
Alameda county firms and to employ, 
as far as is possible, Alameda county 
residents. 



Adoption of a resolution calling for 
immediate steps to be taken to raise 
$100,000 to complete the investigation 
and survey of the water resources ot 
the State, in order that a complete re- 
port may be made to the next Legisla- 
ture and appointment of a committee 
ot nve to meet with other State com- 
mittees and present the matter before 
the business men of the State, marked 
the accomplishments at a mass meet- 
ing ot water users of the San Joaquin 
valley at Visalia, July 9. The survey 
contemplates in effect the eventual 
construction of the so-called Marshall 
Plan, evolved after thirty years of 
.study by Col. R. B. Marshall, former U. 
S. government engineer. 

Emphasizing the industrial con- 
quests of the community, the fourth 
annual East Bay Manufacturers' Ex- 
position will be held under the auspices 
ot the Associated Manufacturers of the 
East Bav Cities at Idora Park, Oak- 
land, for nine days, beginning Sept. 2i. 
The Manufacturers' exposition, an an- 
nual event in Oakland, is regarded a 
business liarometer of the activities of 
the East Bay cities. At the exposition 
the history and growth of the indus- 
tries of the c<.mmunity are graphically 
shown. The attendance last year was 
over 150,000 people. 

The Department of Commerce an- 
nounces that, according to reports for 
the Census ot Manufactures, 1923, the 
establishments engaged primarily in 
the manufacture of sand-lime brick in 
that year produced 187,025 thousands of 
of brick as compared with aj,uu3 
thousands produced in 1921, the rate of 
increase being 101.1 per cent. The 
value of the production in 1923 was 
$2 176,453, and in 1921, $1,214,678, an in- 
crease of 79.2 per cent. The average 
value per thousand, however, decreased 
from $13.06 in 1921 to $11.63 in 1923. 

Breaking all records, building in 
Alameda passed the $2,000,000 mark 
during the fiscal year of 1923-1924 and 
was nearly double that of the preced^ 
ing 12 months, totaling $2,499,963.4.5. 
according to the statistical report of 
Eugene Maillot, building inspector. 
Building showed an increase of $1,- 
132,507.95 during the 12 months, the 
total for 1922-1923 being $1, 367,455.50. 
There were 981 permits issued during 
1923-1924, as compared with 789 for 
1922-1923, an increase ot 192.

Plans for placing bulldinp contrac- 
tors under bond, probably Sl.mio, or 
establishing a license fee for ci.iUrac- 
tors as a protection to themselves and 
the public, were discussed at a recent 
meeting of the San Mateo city trus-

and other cities in the vicinity at- 
tended the meeting. 

With a division of sentiment ex- 
isting among the contractors over the 
preference of being placed under bond 
or paying a license fee, definite de- 
cision was withheld. City Attorney 
Albert Mansrteld. with City Building 
Inspector Con Drathman, however, will 
determine this matter in the drafting 
of a new building ordinance. 

While E. W. Magruder, speaking be- 
fore the board, expressed the belief 
that a yearly license fee would be 
preferable, figuring that a bond would 
"keep out the little fellow," Gus Wal- 
ler, another contractor, declared for 
the bond, asserting that "fly by night- 
ers" coming into the city from the out- 
side to do "transient" work, could 
easily put up $75 or ?80 but could not 
get the necessary $1,000 or whatever 
amount the bond might be set at,

Union Wage Scale Report Issued 



Bulletin No. 354 relating to the 
union scale of wages and hours of 
labor of nearly 900.000 union members 
In the United States as of May 15, 
1923, and showing compari;!0;i with 
preceding years, has just been issued 
by the United States Dep.x'tnuut of 
Labor through the Buro.iu of Labor 
Statistics. Advance figures of this fe- 
port were published in the Monthly 
Labor Review of September and De- 
cember, 1923, and January, 1924. The 
complete bulletin embraces returns 
from 66 leading industrial cities, and 
12 groups of industries covering S9 
trades or occupations. 

In the average tor all trades taken 
collectively the hourly wage rate on 
May 15, 1923, was higher in the United 
States than in any preceding year, 
being 9 per cent higher than on May 
15, 1922; 84 per cent higher than in 
1917; 111 per cent higher than in 1913; 
123 per cent higher than in 1910; and 
135 per cent higher than In 1907. 

In 1923 the regular hours of labor 
were at the same level as in 1922; 4 
per cent lower than in 1917; 6 per 
cent lower than in 1913; 7 per cent 
lower than in 1910; and 8 per cent 
lower than in 1907. 

Sixty-eight per cent of all the union 
members covered had a regular work- 
ing week of 44 hours or less and 18 
per cent had a 4S-hour week; 94 per 
cent of the bakers had a 48-hour week 
or less; 97 per cent of the building 
trades' members had a week of 44 
hours or less as had also practically 
all of the granite and stone workers. 
Among the laundry workers 95 per

ENGINEER WINS SUIT 



William Shearer, surveyor of Sutter 
County, won a legal battle over H. C. 
Flannery, auditor of the same county, 
when the third district court of ap- 
peal handed down a decision reversing 
a judgment of the Sutter County Su- 
perior Court and directing that judg- 
ment be entered in tavor of Shearer. 

The court proceedings were in the 
nature of a petition for a writ of man- 
date to compel Flannery to issue a 
warrant for $84.69 in favor of Shearer 
for services rendered the county as 
surveyor. The trial court denied the 
petition and Shearer appealed to the 
appellate court. A dispute over the 
legality of the claim was the basis of 
the suit. 



LUMBER ORDERS INCREASE 



What is said to be the largest order 
for stranded copper wire ever placed 
on the Pacific Coast was that just re- 
ceived by the Columbia Steel Corpora- 
tion from the California-Oregon 
Power Company of Medford, Oregon. 

The order is for 510 tons of wire and 
was received in competition with bid- 
ders from the largest manufacturers in 
the country. 



With 353 of the larger commercial 
sawmills of the country making com- 
parable weekly reports for the week 
ended June 21, says the National Lum- 
ber Manufacturers' Association, new 
business showed a slight increase 
while production and shipments de- 
creased compared with similar reports 
of 377 mills for the preceding week. As 
compared with the corresponding week 
in 1923, there was a considerable in- 
crease in new business and a noticeable 
decrease in production and shipments. 
The report of the Northern Pine Man- 
ufacturers' Association, Minneapolis, 
was not received in time to be in- 
cluded. 



a 48-hour week and 35 per cent had 
a week of 44 hours or less. In the 
book and job printing trades 89 per 
cent had a working week of 44 hours 
or less, and 10 per cent had a 48- 
hour week. In the newspaper trade 
53 per cent were on the 48-hour week. 
Twenty-nine per cent had a working 
week of over 44 and under 48 hours, 
and 18 per cent had a working week 
of 44 hours or less. 

The average rates of wages per hour 
as of May 15, 1923, for the country 
as a whole for a few typical occu- 
pations were: bakers 92.1 cents; brick- 
layers $1,321; building laborers 72.8 
cents; carpenters $1,084; plasterers 
$1,306; plumbers $1,151; longshoremen 
72.2 cents; blacksmiths 99.7 cents; 
machinists 82.3 cents; newspaper com- 
positors on day work $1,013; and type- 
setting machine operators on day 
work $1,031. 

The average rate per hour for all 
building trades covered was $1,068, 
for the metal trades 83.9 cents, and 
for the newspaper trades $1,047. For 
all trades covered in the several in- 
dustries the average rate per hour was 
9 5.2 cents. As compared with May 15, 
1913. the rate of wages per hour on 
May 15, 1923, showed an increase of 
176 per cent for bakers, 91 per cent 
tor bricklayers; 118 per cent for build- 
ing laborers, 104 per cent for carpen- 
ters; 93 per cent for plasterers; 86 
per cent for plumbers; 109 per cent 
for longshoremen; 103 per cent for 
blacksmiths; 101 per cent for machin- 
ists; 7S per cent for newspaper com- 
positors on day work, and ?3 per cent 
for typesetting machine operators on 
day work. 

STEEL WORKERS' UNION SUES FOR 
$10,000,000 

According to newspaper advices from 
New York, under date of July 9, a 
counter suit for $10,000,000 has been 
brought by the Structural Steel Work- 
ers' union, from which members of the 
Iron league, an organization of em- 
ployers have asked $5,000,000 damages 
on the ground that a strike called last 
May in New York was illegal. 

Counsel for the contractors contend- 
ed that the union had sought repeated- 
ly to force the closed shop upon the 
league, and after calling the strike in 
May had resorted to Intimidation and 
coercion to keep non-union men from 
working. 

Samuel Untermyer, counsel for the 
union, denied that the open shop was 
involved. He said the contractors had 
been forced by the large steel pro- 
ducers to refuse to employ union work- 
men. He charged the league with vio- 
lating the Sherman anti-trust law.

"Black Base" Construction in Mercer County' New Jersey 



HY H. F. HARRIS, MERfER COINTY EXGI>"EER 



During the season of 1922 the Engi- 
neering Department of Mercer County, 
New Jersey, was called upon to con- 
struct a short length of highway con- 
necting two important improved roads. 
Upon this highway for almost the en- 
tire length there was erected on both 
sides a large industrial plant, the op- 
erators of which were called upon 
daily to ship by rail large tonnages of 
their product. It was required that this 
product should be hauled by horse- 
drawn trucks a distance of one-half 
mile to the nearest freight station. 

In considering the design for the 
proposed pavement, the engineers of 
the County felt that a substantial 
foundation was one of the first re- 
quisites to a proper and suitable pave- 
ment. 

The existing road had been spasmod- 
ically covered with a scant coating 
of macadam which was so badly rutted 
and pot-holed that it was with much 
difficulty that the street could be 
"navigated" at all. 

Frankly, the engineers "were in a 
quandry as to what would be the 
proper type of pavement to select and 
the best method of constructing a 
substantial and durable foundation for 
comparatively heavy traffic without 
seriously crippling the daily output of 
the plant, as it was impossible in any 
way to detour the traffic from the 
plant by any other outlet than the one 
which entered upon the street, and it 
was ont of the quqestion to shut off 
traffic for a period of from two to 
three weeks, should it be desired to 
construct the usual six inch Portland 
Cement concrete foundation. More- 
over, the scanty depth of the existing 
stone, as well as its elevation above 
curb grade, precluded its use as a first 
class foundation. 

They finally conceived the idea of 
constructing, a so-called "black base" 
pavement, on a sub-foundation of 
stone, which stone was taken from the 
excavated material and topping the 
"black base" with the regular standard 
sheet asphalt pavement 1% inches 
thick. 

The general method followed in con- 
structing this foundation was to re- 
move the existing stone with forks and 
cast it into piles, then excavate to 3 
inches below the grade fixed for the 
bottom of the "black base," replace the 
stone, which was then rolled and 
bound up in a similar manner to the 
ordinary macadam road, with the ex- 
ception that no unusual effort was 
made to obtain particularly clean stone. 
There were two reasons for using this 
stone Fub-base; first, it would have 
been impossible to have rolled the 
heavy sandy soil without the addition 
of some such material; second, it was 
felt that it would be advisable to pro- 
vide ample depth of foundation for 
type of road so far untried in Mer- 
cer County. 

After this had been properly shaped, 
sprinkled, rolled and compacted, the 
hot mixed "black base" foundation was 
applied in a manner similar to the or- 
dinary asphalt binder course, except 
that it was constructed in two layers, 
each 3 inches thick after it had been 
thoroughly rolled, after which opera- 
tion a IVa inch asphalt pavement was 
applied for the finish; this construc- 
tion making a pavement having a total 
thickness of 10 Vi inches. The "black 
base" was constructed in two layers in 
order to obtain the greatest amount of 
compression. 

The maximum length of time that 
traffic was suspended from the indus- 
trial plant after following out this 



scheme of operation, was but four (4) 
hours, showing an economic saving in 
time of very considerable proportions, 
both to the plant owners and the gen- 
eral public. 

The cost analysis per square yard on 
the basis of the low bid for this work 
follows: 

Excavation $0.49 

3 inch Stone sub-foundation.. 0.18.. 

6 inch Black Base 2.49 

IVi inch Sheet Asphalt Surface 0.89 

Total $4.05 

The cost was about 11% below the 
Engineer's estimate, and it is believed 
that with a larger volume of work and 
with contractors getting more familiar 
with the type of construction that the 
cost can be materially reduced. For the 
contractor it eliminates entirely the 
necessity of bringing in a concreting 
outfit. 

The following typical analysis of the 
"black base" might be of interest: 

Bitumen 6% 

Passing 200 Mesh 2.7% 

Passing 100 Mesh, 4.2% 

80 " 2.2% 

50 " 4.9% 

40 " 3.2% 

30 " 2.6% 27.1% 

20 " 3.6% 

10 " 4 % 

"4 " 2.4% 

hi •• 7.4% 

% " 27.6% 

1" " 23.4% 64.2% 

1%" " 5.8% 



100% 
A typical analysis of the asphaltic 
cement used follows: 

Penetration of A. C 46 

Fixed Carbon 15.3% 

Mineral Matter 05% 

Organic Matter Insoluble... .05% 
Bitumen 99.9% 

Total 100% 

The laboratory and plant inspection 
for this work was under the super- 
vision of Dow & Smith, and the work 
was constructed by James J. Barrett, 
superintended by M. P. Quinn, and the 
engineering for the County was in 
charge of J. B. Walker. 

While the total length constructed is 
comparatively short, it is believed that 
it is of sufficient area to demonstrate 
the possibilities of this type of con- 
struction, the greatest saving being in 
the amount of time which was saved 
during the operation. 

The possibilities for time saving 
were well demonstrated the following 
year, when it was planned to recon- 
struct entirely a section of stone road 
approximately two mile in length. This 
Job was planned and undertaken as a 
result of the previous year's experience. 

In order to determine the exact 
width and depth of the old stone, the 
road was stationed off in 100 foot sec- 
tions. Three measurements were made 
at each section; one at the crown and 
one at each oE the edges. At all of 
these points the depth of stone was re- 
corded, and also the width of the 
original stone road. 

As the old road had been treated four 
or five years in succession with hot 
asphaltic surface oil, a very heavy mat 
had been built up on the road. It was 
found that this mat had accumulated to 
a depth of considerably over an inch. 
In many places it even approached a 
depth of 3 inches. With a mat in this 
condition, it was impossible to continue 
the oil treatment, and traffic was in- 
creasing to such an extent that it was 
felt that a stone road was no longer 



adequate to meet the trafBc demands 
since the road in question formed a 
through truck route between Nev» 
York and Philadelphia and connected 
directly with the free bridge over the 
Delaware River. 

Measurements taken at the 100 foot 
stations previous to the actual design 
of the road, showed that the average 
width of the stone throughout the en- 
tire distance was 16.7 feet, the mini- 
mum being 15.1 feet and the maximum 
18.9 feet. The depth of stone averaged 
8% inches, the minimum being 5'/4 
inches and the maximum 13 inches, too 
large an investment to disregard. 

After studying this situation careful- 
ly, it was decided to make use of this 
depth of stone as a foundation, widen 
it out where required, and build up ad- 
ditional thickness for foundation with 
"black base" construction, as in this 
case curbs or sidewalks had not been 
constructed, nor had grades for them 
been established. This idea had num- 
erous advantages over other plans 
studied: 

1. It would enable the authorities to 
construct a modern pavement in a 
minimum length of time. 

2. It would give a thicker and 
heavier pavement. 

3. Considering width and depth and 
the economy in. time, it could be con- 
structed at much less cost. 

4. It would also conserve the In- 
vestment in the original pavement to 
the uttermost, and there would be a 
minimum of inconvenience to abutting 
property owners. 

5. Openings for extension of sewers, 
water and gas mains could be more 
quickly made and repaired. 

The final plans called for construct- 
ing an asphalt surface 20 feet wide 
with 3 foot penetration shoulders on 
either side. The time allotted in the 
contract for completing the work was 
121 days, Sundays and holidays Includ- 
ed. The time in which the work was 
actually constructed was 71 days, 
making a difference of 50 days, for 
which the Contractor earned a bonus 
of .$500. Two miles of road were there- 
fore entirely rebult in 71 days elapsed 
time. In the work also was included 
about $7000 worth of drainage pipes 
and other structures. 

For constructing the sheet asphalt 
pavement 20 feet wide on a square yard 
basis the costs were as follows: 
Excavation (for widening founda- 
tion) $0,141 

Widening macadam foundation 
with stone including the 
scarifying and removal of old 

mat 0.756 

Black Base, 304 lbs. per sq. yd... 1.355 
Sheet asphalt surface, li^ inches 

deep 1.49 

Total cost $3,747 

The penetration macadam shoulders 
cost per square yard as follows: 

Excavation $0,147 

Foundation, 8 inch Water-Bound 

Macadam 0.755 

Penetration macadam surface, 3 

inches deep 1.35 

Total cost $2,252 

It will be noted that the cost of the 
penetration macadam surface 3 inches 
deep, was almost exactly the same as 
for laying the "black base," that is, 
$1.35, the "black base" having aver- 
aged 3 inches in depth. In many 
places, however, the "black base'" had 
a maximum of over 4 inches, due to 
making up inequalities in the old 
stone base.

BUILDING AND ENGINEERING NEWS 



The Engineer's preliminary estimate 
of cost for this work was $104,740. 
After advertising for bids the foUow- 
InK three lump sum proposals were re- 
ceived: 

Bidder A $102,309.70 

■• B 104.641.50 

•• C 132,171.60 

Unit prices were received for all 
Items of construction. The award price 
for black base mix per ton was $8.90 In 
place. Two and one-half Inch (2H In.) 
stone (trap rock) in place. $4.00 per 
ton; stone screenings in place. $3.25 
per ton; excavation without classifica- 
tion, $1.70 per cubic yard. The analyz- 
ed cost fleures previously given for all 
Items on a per square yard basis were 
equated from the per ton figures named 
in the bid. 

In widening the roadway proper, the 
work of constructing the foundation 
for the penetration shoulders was in- 
cluded and performed as one opera- 
tion. In this way it was possible 
thoroughly to roll and secure a well 
consolidated base, and eliminate a line 
of weakness which is often found at 
the point where the pavement joins the 
newly constructed shoulders. If the 
penetration shoulder is built after the 
laying of the surface pavement, as Is 
often the case, it is very difilcult to 
roll and consolidate stone In a trench 
only 3 feet wide or to bond and tie it 
Into the old road. 

This work was also constructed by 
James J. Barrett, and the asphalt work 
both at the plant and at the laboratory 
was inspected by Stillman & Van Siclen. 
The engineering was in charge of Mr. 
J. B. Walker. 

It might be of interest to point out 
that immediately adjoining the first 
described work there Is a stretch of 
about one mile of 20-foot-wIde sheet 
asphalt pavement of standard construc- 
tion, built on a Portland Cement con- 
crete foundation. This work was laid 
two years earlier and is also in very 
excellent condition. The only defects 
perceptible now are a series of trans- 
verse cracks at regular or fairly reg- 
ular Intervals, undoubtedly due to 
cracks in the base. These became quite 
apparent between the second and third 
year In the life of the pavement and 
observation and comparison of the be- 
havior of these two pavements Im- 
mediately adjacent to one another is 
going to be an Interesting field for 
study. 

Up to Xhe present time the "black 
base" work has shown no cracks what- 
ever, and is to all intents and pur- 
poses in every respect eqaal to the 
standard practice in constructing sheet 
asphalt with the rigid base.

The March Issue of the "Journal of 
the American-Belgian Chamber of 
Commerce," published in Belgium, con- 
tains an article by L,. P. E. Giftory. dis- 
cusses the American market for the 
sale of Belgian cement. 

The article as published follows: 

The enormous amount of artificial 
P'ortland cement which has recently 
been bought and contracted for In 
Belgium by American Importers, for 
future delivery, has suggested the 
giving of some timely advice both to 
buyers and sellers in order to avoid 
possible shortcomings and eventual 
financial losses. 

It is evident that the fall in the ex- 
change value of the Belgian franc has 
had a gre.at deal to do with these large 
purchases, but it must be admitted 
that, according to reliable statistics, 
there is a temporary deficiency In U. 
S. production as compared with the 
ever Increasing demand. In fact build- 
ing permits have increased by some 
$110,000,000 as against those of a year 
ago. To this must be added the drain 
made on existing stocks by the great 
amount of cement shipped to Japan by 
Pacific coast producers. 

Tremendous efforts are being made, 
however, to Increase the. output of the 
existing mills and new ones are being 
erected all over the United States, 
some of them having started recently 
with a 4,000 barrel daily production. 
During 1923 the United States pro- 
duced about 137,500,000 barrels of ce- 
ment or some 22,500,000 barrels over 
the 1922 production. Conservative esti- 
mates seem to indicate that a total of 
170,000,000 barrels will be turned out 
this ye.ar, which will be far superior to 
the combined production of the rest of 
the world. 

This record breaking production will 
coincide with the Portland Cement 
Centennial as it is just 100 years ago — 
according to records on file In the 
British patent office — that Joseph As- 
pdln, a bricklayer of Leeds, was 
awarded a patent for a material de- 
scribed as follows: 

"He added clay to finely ground 
limestone, calcined the mixture and 
ground the product which he called 
Portland cement." 

The only connection between Port- 
land cement and the Isle of Portland 
on the coast of Dorsetshire, England, is 
that the cement when set resembles 
Portland Oolitic limestone In color. 
This stone is widely famed for build- 
ing purposes and v/as extensively used 
in supplying material for St. Paul's 
Cathedral. 

While pozzuolanic cement was well 
known to builders In the earliest his- 
toric times, succeeded by hydraulic 
limes and Roman cement first used 
about 1796, it is only half a century 
ago that real progress was made in 
the manufacture of high grade Port- 
land cement. 

Care should be taken not to con- 
found the so called natural Portland 
cement with artificial Portland cement, 
as the process of making both is en- 
tirely different, the former being 
always uneven In quality on account 
of irregular composition of the lime- 
stone and clay admixtures which form 
its basis. This makes it only suitable 
for ordinary building purposes, while 
the latter should be relied upon ex- 
soundness and resistance to high pres- 
sure is demanded, its manufacture per- 
clusively for works where endurance. 



nutting proper dosage and careful 
compounding. 

Misleading labels are often used by 
unscrupulous dealers advirtising for 
instance "Best Portland Cement,, or 
"Finest Quality Portland Cement" but 
comparative tensile strengths taken at 
random amongst several tests will 
show the tremendous difference in in- 
trinsic value of both qualities. 
Averages in tensile strength per 
square inch 
Natural Neat Cement — 7 Days Test, 
431 lbs.; 28 Days Test, 510 lbs. 

Artificial — 7 Days Test, 900 lbs; 28 
Days Test, 971 lbs. 

SAND TEST 

3 parts of standard sand to 1 part of 
cement. 

222 lbs., 300 lbs., 427 lbs., 513 lbs. 

Most countries have adopted a 
standard specification by which ex- 
treme allowances in objectionable In- 
gredients are set forth and Indicating 
the caracterlstlcs of chemical tests 
with minimum crushing and tensile 
strengths. While the Government has 
at Mechlen an official laboratory for 
testing materials, its results are 
seldom adhered to outside of the 
country so that Belgian Cement manu- 
facturers have always used the British 
Standard specifications as a leader for 
the exportation of their products, same 
Ijeing generally admitted the world 
over as desideratum of efficiency. 

These conditions have presided regu- 
larly over all transactions for years so 
that they might unconsciously bring 
about some important misgivings re- 
sulting in financial losses. 

In these respects it would be well for 
Belgian producers to realize the great 
difference existing between British and 
American specifications when selling 
for export to the States. 

Space would not permit of an 
elaborate display of requirements but 
the following comparisons In specifica- 
tions will be sufficient to serve as a 
timely warning for mutual protection. 

FINENESS 
British Allowance 
Maximum residue when sifted 

through a 180 x 180 sieve: 14% 

Ma.ximum residue when sifted 

through a 76 x 71 sieve: 1% 

American Allowance 
Maximum residue when sifted 

through N° 200 sieve: 20% 

INSOLUBLE RESIDUE 

British American 

1.5% not to exceed 0.85% 

SULPHURIC ANHYDRIDE 

2.75% not to exceed 2% 

It must be distinctly understood that 
cement not answering the specifica- 
tions of the Washington Bureau of 
Standards will not be admitted in 
United States governmental or muni- 
cipal works and that all important 
building contracts contain the follow- 
ing stereotyped condition: 

"The cement shall comply with the 
specifications for Portland cement, as 
adopted and amended by the American 
Society for testing materials." 

Other conditions for testing sampling 
and the like, vary according to loca- 
tions but the main requirements are 
always adhered to. 

It Is our greatest desire to foster 
commercial relations between the two 
Countries In so far as it lies within 
our power and we therefore believe 
that our aim is the better attained 
when confronting the parties with the 
actual conditions which must govern 
honest niHtual dealings.

thorized payable during the month of 
July, to stockholders of record, as of 
July 1, 1924. This is semi-annual di- 
vidend No. 5, and payable at the rate 
of 8 per cent per annum for the period 
of January 1 to June 30, 1924.

STEEL SASH BUSINESS GOOD 



Though presidential years are com 
monly considered poor business years, ! 
sales figures of the Detroit Steel Pro- 
ducts Company, Detroit, Mich., which 
has a large plant in Emeryville, for 
May show the greatest volume of steel 
sash business in four and a quarter 
years. 

May performances surpassed that of 
April, last year, the largest month of 
1923, by 15 per cent. April records for 
this year were beaten 15 per cent. 

Further comparison would indicate 
that presidential years have been ban- 
ner years for the above mentioned 
company since 1908; 1912 beat 1911 50 
per cent, 1916 beat 1915 56 per cent, 
and 1920 beat 1919 10 per cent. 

The Emeryville plant has recently 
been doubled in capacity and now has 
a capacity of 100,000,000 square feet of 
steel sash a year. 



210-MILE PIPE LINE 



A continuous steel tube 210 miles 
l(jng without a coupling or a screw- 
thread connection will be laid this 
summer between the Texas-Louisiana 
natural gas fields near Shreveport, La., 
and Beaumont, Texas. When complet- 
ed, the longest 16-inch diameter pipe 
line in the world will cross two rivers, 
innumerable creeks and run under- 
ground through four counties to carrj 
the natural gas to Beaumont. Oxy- 
acetylene welding will seal every 
joint, replacing the old method of screw 
couplings, thus reducing the upkeep ol 
the line to the vanishing point, and 
conserving a great quantity of gas 
from the leakage which has always 
been unavoidable with threaded joints

NOTE: — Sandy Pratt is at Rio Nido 
on the Russian River so we picked out 
one of his best stories to run while 
away on a vacation — "The Office Girls." 

MRS. BOB Hair lives. 

NEAR SANDl' Pratt, President. 

OF THE Pratt Building Material Co. 

PRODUCER OF Rock and Sand. 

AND BOB Hair, her husband. 

WAS OLD fashioned. 

AND THOUGHT women. 

SHOULD STAY home. 

COOK HIS meals. 

AND NOT spend 90%. 

OF THEIR time. 

PLAYING BRIDGE and poker. 

MRS. BOB Hair wanted. 

TO BOB her hair. 

FRIEND HUSBAND was opposed. 

BUT LIKE all wives. 

SHE BEGAN to argue. 

SHE SAID her headaches. 

WOULD DISAPPEAR. 

IF THE weight. 

OF HER hair. 

AND HER hair net. 

COULD BE removed. 

FROM HER brain casing. 

SO BOB Hair gave in. 

BECAUSE IT is the easy way. 

FOR SOME ladies will argue. 

AND BOB liked to read. 

WHEN HE was home. 

SO THE hair was bobbed. 

AND NO more complaints. 

ABOUT HEADACHES from friend wife. 

BUT THE liills. 

w • « 

FOR MARCELLS, trimming, etc. 

GAVE POOR i:nb Hair headaches. 

AND SANDY predicts. 

THAT SOON all men. 

WILL WEAR long hair. 2. . 



.\ND A lady with long hair. 

• • • 
IS NO lady at all. 

.■S.ND NOW changing. 

FROM THE sublime. 

• • • 
TO THE ridiculous. 

SANDY PRATT, Producer. 

OF THE best crushed rock. 

AND CLEANEST, sharp sand. 

IN THE world. 

HE.\RD IRWIN Engler, Secretary. 

OF THE Sacramento Chamber of Com- 
merce. 

TE;ll THE Sacramento Rotary Club. 

THAT STATISTICS show. 

TH.\T OUT of every 100 women. 

THAT FAINT. 

55% FALL into the arms. 

OF GOODLOOKING men. 

AND ONLY 1% fall. 

INTO THE kitchen sink. 

•■I THANK you."

Portland 
Cement Stucco 

Endures 

No wonder it is unaSected by weather condi- 
tions—that rain only makes it harder. For Portland 
Cement Stucco in all essentials is Concrete. And 
you know how well Concrete serves in founda- 
tions, in homes, in hospitals, in mighty dams, in 
roads and skyscrapers. 

Be sure, therefore, that you always specify stucco 
by the full name, Portland Cement Stucco, and get 
the enduring strength which that tenacious binder, 
Portland Cement, assures. 

Architects will tell you that Portland Cement 
Stucco assures a home of distinction and beauty. 
No other exterior treatment oSers such a variety of 
color and texture. It harmonizes perfectly with any 
landscape setting. 

And the ideal backing for Portland Cement 
Stucco is Concrete Masonry— Concrete Block or 
Tile. * * * 

Watch for advertisements telling about the many other uses of Portland 
Cement. And remember that the Portland Cement Association has a 
free personal service to oSer you. Whether you use concrete or have 
it used for you, this service will give you more for your money.

papers as saying that 'Los Angeles has 
. "overbuilt" during the last year or two, 
and the building slump was an in- 
evitable reaction.' There has not been 
a time in the last twenty years when 
Los Angeles was not 'overbuilt' in the 
opinion of some people. Even when 
there was the greatest demand for 
new buildings, predictions that the city 
was gbing too fast and assertions that 
there wasn't any need tor all the 
buildings being erected, were very 
common. A lot of people who took 
in this sort of talk let wonderful op- 
portunities slip by them, while the 
optimists counted their profits arising 
from the steady expansion and develop- 
ment of the city. 

"It is true t'liat tor a period follow- 
ing the war buildings of all kinds were 
at a premium as a result of the short- 
age caused by slowing down of build- 
ing during the war. Due to extraordi- 



nary building activity that shortage 
has been relieved and the reaction has 
brought building back to normal. But 
the city Is not 'overbuilt.' There are 
more houses to let than at any period 
since the war, but me percentage of 
vacancies is far below what is con- 
sidered a normal in the average pros- 
perous and growing city. It Is neces- 
sary that building should keep ahead 
of the actual demand, otherwise the 
public would be at the mercy of land- 
lords and expansion of the city would 
be hampered. If building in Los An- 
geles should suddenly cease, houses 
would be at a premium within two 
months. That is the extent to which 
the city is 'overbuilt.' " 



ZIXC ROOFS UNDER TEST 



Tests of corrugated zinc roofing are 
now under way at the Bureau of 
Standards of the Department of Com- 
merce for the purpose of determining 
the loads that can safely be carried by 
this material. Unlike most roofing ma- 
terials zinc fails not by breaking but 
l>y bending slowly under load, the 
material taking a permanent set. It is 
therefore not considered desirable 
where heavy loads must be born con- 
tinuously, unless it is well supported. 
But where the normal load is light, as 
it is apt to be in the tropics, zinc roof- 
ing may prove more durable than gal- 
vanized steel, as the latter fails rapidly 
from corrosion in such climates. The 
test made on the roofing consists in 
loading the corrugated sheet with sand, 
the sheet being supported on a frame- 
work representing the roof purlins. 
The load is left in place for a month or 
more and the deflection is measured 
each day.

ESGIXEERIXG COXSTHUCTION 
AWARDS 



Contracts awarded on large engi- 
neering construction projects, as pub- 
lished in the tour issues of Engineer- 
ing News-Record (New York), during 
the month of June, reached $153,140,- 
000 as against $257,665,000 in the five 
issues of May, 1924. Awards published 
in the four issues of June, 1923, 
amounted to $188,786,000. 

The average weekly value of June 
lettings was $38,785,000 as compared 
with $51,533,000 for May. 

Minimum costs observed in the Con- 
struction News section of Engineering 
News-Record on each class of con- 
struction are as follows: AVaterworks 
and excavations, $15,000: other public 
works, $25,000; industrial construction, 
$40,000, and commercial buildings, 
$150,000. 

The money value of contracts 
awarded during June was smaller than 
that for the month preceding in all 
sections of the United States except 
New England, which showed a gain of 
about a million dollars. The Middle 
-Atlantic states fell oft nearly $27,000,- 
000 despite the fact that large awards 
in New York City alone amounted to 
$12,603,871 at the minimum costs just 
mentioned. New York awards during 
May of the current year totaled $16,- 
204,916. 

Despite the general falling off in 
construction there were gains during 
June in lettings for sewers, excava- 
tions, drainage and irrigation projects 
and federal government work. 

Although the physical volume of 
June construction was under that of 
the corresponding month in 1922 and 
1923, it was also heavier than for 
the same period in the three preceding 
years. 



SOITH .\>1RR. ENGINEERS L.AVD 
C.\LlFORXI.A HIGHWA%S 



Highway building in California is 
years ahead of France and England 
and likewise is forging ahead of many 
eastern states in the opinion of Sr. 
Fermin Leon and Sr. Hector Vigil, 
highway engineers of Chile, who are in 
("alifomia inspecting state highways 
as the guest of Chairman Harvey M, 
Toy of the California Highway Com- 
mission and the state highway depart- 
ment. 

The trip to the West of the two 
South American road builders followed 
a tour through a number of eastern 
states where they were members of a 
large party of engineers from the 
southern republics who came to the 
United States as the guests of the 
Highway Education Board. Previously, 
the two visitors had studied road con- 
struction in several European coun- 
tries. 

Following the conclusion of the east- 
ern tour, the two Chilian engineers 
came to California, underspecial in- 
structions from their government, to 
view the highways of this state before 
returning to Valpariso. 

They arrived in San Francisco July 
9 where they were welcomed by Chair- 
man Toy who gave a luncheon in their 
honor attended by Walter Frickstadt. 
regional official of the United States 
Bureau of Public Roads. A. E. Loder, 
engineer for the California State Auto- 
mobile Association, Col. J. H. Skeggs, 
division engineer for the California 
Highway Commission in San Francisco, 
and Fred J. Grumm. assistant highway 
engineer and special representative of 
State Highway Engineer R. M. Morton. 

Mr. Grumm will assist Col. Skeggs 
and Chairman Toy in escorting the 
visitors over the state highway in the 
vicinity of San Francisco and will ac- 
company them on a visit to Los An- 
geles and vicinity later. 

Motoring over the Peninsula High- 
way which has been recently widened 
to forty feet, the visitors expressed 
surprise and admiration over the heavy 
type of construction adopted by the 
California Commission. Roads of such 
width are uncommon, even in the states 
with larje populations, they declared, 
adding that California highways are 
far ahead of present road construction 
in France and England, two of the 
countries visited during their tour. 

"It is a distinct compliment to Cali- 
fornia to have these distinguished road 
builders visit this state," said Chair- 
man Toy, commenting upon the visit of 
the Chilian engineers, "and the Cali- 
fornia Highway Department is pleased 
to have the opportunity to show them 
our roads and to furnish them with all 
available information concerning our 
highway system. 

"We are pround of the newer and 
higher standards of construction 
adopted by the present highway com- 
mission and state highway engineer 
and it is our ambition to lead the na- 
tion in road building if the people will 
furnish us with funds to keep the 
work going." 



Curtailment of elevator service in 
the buildings of Los Angelas as a part 
of the power conservation program of 
Southern California is predicted by H. 
G, Butler, power superi-itemlent for the 
State Railroad Commission. The sec- 
ond floor stop would lie eliminated and, 
in the larger buildings a part of the 
cars put out of ser.'ice, Butler an- 
nounced. 



HIGH SPETED .*rTO ROADS PRE- 
DICTED BY HIGHWAY OFFIGIAJjS 



High speed motorways, fenced or 
walled on cither side except at inter- 
vals of perhaps five miles or more, so 
located as to eliminate intersections 
and crossings at grades, sate for con- 
tinuous speeds of thirty-five or forty 
miles an hour, perhaps more, and 
flanked by narrower and slower speed 
roads for local traffic, will form the 
future traflic connecting links be- 
tween the larger cities. 

Such is the forecast made by A. E. 
Loder, manager of the good roads bu- 
reau of the California State Automo- 
bile Association, in a recent talk be- 
fore the annual convention of the 
American Society of civil Engineers. 

While he admitted that such an ar- 
rangement of highways would be nec- 
essary at present in only a few parts 
of the country, Loder said that he be- 
lieved that the time would come when 
such a plan will be in use. and that 
within the next decade highways be- 
tween the larger centers of population 
will probably be laid out with a view 
to these considerations. 

Looking into the future, the state 
automobile association's good roads 
manager sees the stream of traffic 
flowing between the larger cities at a 
continuous speed that is faster than 
the present legal limit and operating 
under such conditions that vehicles can 
follow each other more closely than 
would be safe on the present high- 
ways with their frequent intersections 
and interruptions of the stream of 
traffic. 

These future express highways, 
Loder told the engineers society, will 
probably consist of one or more high 
speed motorways. Entrances into 
these motorways will be limited to 
every five or ten miles where grade 
separations and wide turnouts and in- 
lets will permit traffic to leave or enter 
the motorway without interfering with 
rapidly moving traffic. Grade separa- 
tions will be provided wherever trans- 
roads must cross and the necessity for 
left hand turns will be eliminated. 

The high speed motorway would be 
located upon land owned in fee by the 
state and safeguarded under future 
legislation so that it may perform its 
function of serving the greatest pos- 
sible number of people in the most 
efficient manner. On both side, the 
high speed roadway would be flanked 
with narrower but continuous local 
roads to which the abbuting property 
will have free and unhindered access 
as at present. 

With such a layout local traffic 
would be fully protected from high 
speed traffic and the high speed traffic 
will not be interferred with by local 
and slow traffic. Local traffic would 
follow the parallel local roadways until 
the first intersections, where if It de- 
sired, it could enter the high speed 
motorway. 

Loder said that future legislation 
would probably be devised whereby the 
highways can be under complete own- 
ership and control of the state instead 
of being merely an easement over 
property which now exercises the right 
of erecting as many dangerous inter- 
sections and frontage obstructions as 
owners and real estate subdividers can 
devise. 



Do you know that there are 15,201,- 
000 telephones in the United States and 
15,221,183 automobiles? In 1920 there 
were 2,000,000 more telephones than 
automobiles.

BUILDING AND ENGINEERING NEWS 

ALONG THE LINE 



THE OBSERVER 

WHAT HE HEARS AND SEES ON HIS ROUNDS 



still further building material price 
reduction and a revival of warehouse 
and allied construction loom large as 
last-half-of-the-year prospects, vrrites 
Allen E. Beals in the current Dow Ser- 
vice Daily Building Reports, New York. 
Many of the factors operating to in- 
vigorate the latter affect the former. 
Housing developed the pre-eminent 
building investment nrogram at the 
close of the great war. From the 1919- 
20 construction s.a.^.jn to in22-2.'5 that 
type of construction drew the lulk ot 
the nation's building funds. But if the 
first half ot 1924 showed that there was 
a tendency to shift the last half is cal- 
culated to accelerate the drift toward 
the increasing dominance of commer- 
cial building. For nearly five year? tl-.e 
national construction tide has flov/ed 
unturned in the direction of doniest.c 
housing needs. Indust.-'al construction 
has not participated in this boom to 
the same extent because America's in 
dustrial expansion has I een absorbing 
the vast volume of manufacturing 
space added to existing mills durinij the 
late national emergin;/. 



Allan Rae, a building contractor of 
547 Lewis avenue, San Leandro, has 
petitioned the United States District 
Court to be adjudged a voluntary 
bankrupt. He scheduled his liabilities 
at $38,406.38, with assets of $200. The 
principal creditor, said the petition, is 
Ernest Schmitz of Fresno, to whom 
$25,000 is owing on a court judgment. 
A creditor's petition asking that the 
Dowd Sales Company of this city be 
be declared an involuntary bankrupt, 
also was filed in the Federal Court. The 
petitioning creditors were William 
Ae-schbach, the Illinois-Pacific Glass 
Company and Arthur G. Goff. 

Through the appeals made by the 
Spring "Valley Water Company for con- 
sumers to conserve the supply in view 
of the present shortage, water con- 
sumption in the city showed a reduc- 
tion for June of 700,000 gallons daily 
compared with May, according to O. F,. 
Clemens, manager of the water sales 
department. 

The Japanese government has ad- 
dressed a communication to the Mexi- 
can Federation of Chambers of Com- 
merce requesting to be placed in 
touch with the Mexican producers for 
the purpose of placing orders for raw 
materials previously purchased in the 
United States. 



The Wendover cut-oft will be thrown 
open to motorists about September 1, 
according to Frederick H. Meyer, 
chairman of the highway committee of 
the San Francisco Chamber of Com- 
merce and president of the Utah- 
Nevada-California Highway Associa- 
tion. The fact that the cut-off will 
be ready for travel this year is en- 
tirely dtie to the efforts of Mr. Meyer. 
George S. Forderer, vice president of 
the Chamber, and others who raised 
$50,000 in San Francisco and Northern 
California with which to construct the 
cut-off. The Wendover cut-oft is the 
only direct highway tor motorists from 
Salt Lake City to San Francisco and it 
will lessen the distance by approxi- 
mately 500 miles. Travel from the East 
in the past has had to go way south or 
take the northern route to avoid the 
salt desert of Utah, the road through 
which is impassable most of the time. 

General practical co-operation of big 
corporations with the Forest Service 
Department ot Agriculture in prevent- 
ing forest fires was inaugurated by 
the Shell Company of California, which 
has started work on repainting its 
twelve-foot yellow-and-red dial signs, 
on highways all along the Pacific 
Coast, with posters urging motorists to 
help prevent fires. Every Shell station 
has been made an auxiliary of the 
Forest Service, to report incipient fires 
immediately where it is more conven- 
ient to reach a Shell station than a 
forest ranger. 



Unfilled orders on the books of the 
United States Steel Corporation as per 
June 30, totalled 3,262,205 tons, a de- 
crease ot 365,584 tons from the May 31 
total. On April 30 the total was 4.- 
082,447 tons; on March 31. 4,782.807 and 
on June 30, 1923, it was 6,386,261 tons. 

The Sutter county supervisors have 
ordered plans prepared for the cause- 
■way to connect with the west approach 
to the new bridge at Nicolaus on the 
Garden Highway between Yuba City 
and Sacramento. The improvement will 
cost approximattly $180,000. 

■Wm. H. Phippis, 68, wealthy lum- 
berman, died in Hudson, Wis., July 14. 
Phippis owned extensive lumber in- 
terests "on the Pacific Coast, according 
to reports. 



In furtherance of its efforts to afford 
prompt relief, where possible, to water 
consumers who are subjected to incon- 
venience or threatened loss by reason 
of the prevailing drought conditions, 
the State Railroad Commission has ap- 
pointed E. H. Harroun. a hydraulic en- 
gineer, as advisory engineer in water 
matters. Mr. Harroun will be dis- 
patched to the scene wherever his ser- 
vices are necessary to adjust differ- 
ences betweep public utility water 
companies ana consumers, or to ad- 
vise the utilities in the matter of de- 
veloping their full resources, and in 
apportioning their available supply 
where a shortage to certain consumers 
is threatened. 




Lumber exports from the port of 
■Vancouver, B. C, amounted to 164.000,- 
000 feet during the first four months 
of the current year. 



Los Angeles harbor commission, in 
a policy ot retrenchment, has abolish- 
ed the" positions of superintendent of 
the Municipal Terminal railway held by 
George Southwick; assistant . harbor 
engineer, held by E. W. Merwin. and 
assistant engineer, held by John 
Gower. Burt Edwards, chief account- 
ant will assume also the duties of con- 
troller, formerly held by J. H. Woods. 
John C. Shaw has been appoijited as- 
sistant harbor engineer. 

Wyoming and Colorado Short Line 
Railroad Company has applied to Inter 
State Commerce Commission tor au- 
thority to construct a 380-mile line 
from Casper Wvo.. southwest, to the 
Colorado-Utah state line- The new line 
would traverse an unserved cattle ter- 
ritory, oil and gas sections, iron and 
coal fields and a lumber region. 

Los Angeles is credited with one- 
twentieth of all the building operations 
in the United States during 1923 m a 
statement issued by the Los Angeles 
Chamber of Commerce. Reports from 
other cities in southern California 
showed similar record-breaking build- 
ing activities. 



California State Highway Commis- 
sion announces the promotion of J. ('. 
McLeod and H. S. Comly to the position 
ot division engineer. Both men have 
been acting division engineers for sev- 
eral months, McLeod being in charge 
of Division 10 with headquarters in 
Sacramento and Comly heading Divi- 
sion 2 with headquarters at Dunsmuir, 
Siskiyou county. Promotions followed 
a civil service examination in which 
both engineers attained a grade en- 
titling them to hold the position of di- 
vision engineer. 

H. C. Bottorff, city manager of Sac- 
ramento, by resolution of the City 
Commissioners, has been directed to 
submit complete report of the physical 
condition ot the city filtration plant 
and a separate rejiort showing all ex- 
penditures and disbursements in con- 
nection with the plant. This action 
was taken in compliance with a de- 
mand by a group of the city commis- 
sioners, led by A. E. Goddard, that the 
council heed "the rumbling of discon- 
tent among the people of Sacramento 
with the condition ot the filtration 
plant." 

Harold C. Cloudman of Berkeley an- 
nounces his candidacy for the nomina- 
tion ot assemblyman from the Fortieth 
District. Cloudman is an engineer and 
for the nast five years was with the 
U S. Geological Survey as chief of the 
field division in the classification of 
lands in the water Resources Branch. 
During the world war he served as 
captain in the Engineers' Division of 
the Army. 

Grover L. Walters has been appoint- 
ed building inspector of Fullerton and 
will assume the duties also ot electrical 
and plumbing inspector, succeeding E. 
S Richmond, building inspector, and J. 
S Falvey, electrical and plumbing in- 
spector, resigned. Mr. Walters was for 
three years connected with the city en- 
gineering department. 



Gustav Lindenthal. internationally 
known bridge engineer ot New York is 
in San Francisco to make a survey tor 
the proposed bridge from Hunters' 
Point to the projected naval base at 
\lameda. Eastern capitalists are said 
to be willing to put $25,000,000 into the 
project. 

B G. Lamme, chief engineer of the 
Westinghouse Electric & Manufactur- 
ing Company, internationally known 
authoritv and inventor, died in Pitts- 
burgh Pa., recently. His brother \v il- 
liam E. Lamme, is a San Francisco 
electrical engineer. 

C E Grunskv. San Francsico engi- 
neer, has been relieved ot his position 
as ciiief engineer on the Vallejo muni- 
cipal water project in Gordon 'Valley. 

Petitions have been presented to the

.MAX E. COOK REPRESENTING 
REU'iVOOU ASS'N IN L. A. 

The California Redwood Association 
announces the the appointment of Ma.\ 
E. Cook as their representative In 
Southern California, with ofl^ces in the 
Metropolitan Building, Los Angeles. 

Mr. Cook has had fourteen years 
experience as an architect in Northern 
California. 

In the past four years over 1200 
farm and administration buildings have 
been built, under supervision of Max 
E. Cook, for six years Farmstead En- 
gineer, in charge of all building work 
for the State Land Settlement Board, 
on the 9000 acre State Land Colony 
seven miles south of Turlock in the 
San Joaquin Valley. 

Under the State Land Settlement Act 
the Delhi settlers were in most in- 
stances loaned 60 per cent of the value 
of their buildings on a twenty year 
term. This policy made it imperative 
for the best interests of the settlers as 
well as for the protection of the state, 
to adopt certain safe standards of con- 
struction. One of the outstanding 
features of the building program at 
Delhi in this connection was the al- 
most universal use of Redwood for 
siding the many homes and outbuild- 
ings, the use of redwood boards for 
barns, etc., and T. & G. redwood ceil- 
ing on the walls of the modern draft 
tight poultry houses, which, if built 
end to end would extend over a mile in 
length and where one-half million feet 
of this material alone was used. 

From the very outset Redwood was 
selected as the most satisfactory ma- 
terial to withstand the rigors of 
climate in the valley and conditions to 
be met on the farm. 

Quoting Mr. Cook on this subject 
"Farm Buildings, more than others, 
suffer from lack of adequate paint. At 
Delhi we found it necessary to refuse 
a loan on an unpainted building, but 
recognizing the difficulty of keeping 
farm buildings properly painted at all 
times, we adopted Redwood as a 
standard construction for all sills, un- 
derpinning, siding, barn boards and 
exposed finish. I know no wood that 
can withstand lack of paint and hold 
up better otherwise under adverse con- 
ditions, on the form, nor that is more 
truly economical for such use, than 
Redwood." 

Mr. Cook's major work in the South- 
ern California District will consist of 
consulting architects and contractors 
in the interests of Redwood. 



LUMBERMEN TO MEET 



The midsummer meeting of the Na- 
tional-American Wholesale Lumber As- 
sociation to be held at Portland, Ore., 
July 30 will be largely attended by the 
western membership and a number of 
eastern officers and members will be 
on hand. This meeting provides op- 
portunity for consideration of prob- 
lems especially affecting the north 
coast membership and their relation to 
organization activities at large. R. A. 
Dailey, manager of the association's 
north coast office, has visited Portland 
and made plans for the meeting pro- 
gram, etc.. and a number of subjects, 
including transportation as it affects 
intercoastal business, credits, arbitra- 
tion, cost of doing business, uniform 
order blank, etc., will be discussed. 

The meeting will be held at the Ben- 
son Hotel, starting with a luncheon on 
Tuesday, July 30.

Question— What Kind of A Town Would You 
Like to Live In? 

BY JOHN IHLDER. MANAGER. CIVIC DEPARTMENT, CHAMBER OF 
BY JOHN •"'^.jj^^j,pj^ OP THE UNITED STATES 



The excellence of a town depends 
so much upon the ability and the 
spirit of its people that these may 
(luite upset any comparative rating 
based upon actual tangible accomplish- 
ment, though, of course, with ability 
and the right spirit the people of any 
given community are bound to secure 
a lot of accomplishments 

The trouble is that we have to mark; 
them on what they have done to date 
and can not take into account, what 
may be the fact, that they have been 
overcoming some great natural handi- 
cap which absorbed most of their 
energy without showing much positive 
result, or, what again may be a fact 
that they have only recently learned 
how to work together effectively. In 
either case the marks given their town 
are likely to be low, and yet, because 
of the spirit they have developed, the 
things they are now doing, the ac- 
complishments they are sure to have to 
their credit in the near future, they 
may have a town that we would find 
it very inspiring to live in. For it is 
where men are now achieving, not 
where they have achieved and are now 
sitting back admiring the past, that we 
would want to live. 

On the other hand, there is no limit 
to achievement e.xcept the limit im- 
posed by our personal limitations. So 
where we find a community that has 
done a lot and is still going ahead 
with the same vision and enthusiasm 
and energy to fresh achievement, there 
we prabably shall find the people with 
whom life would be best worth living. 
I assume that the existence of a 
town or city depends upon business. 
The first test of community excellence 
therefore is. What kind of a place is it 
for business? And the answer to this 
question goes a long way toward 
answering the other important ques- 
tion, "Is it the kind of a town we — you 
and I — would like to live in?" For, I 
also assume that we must earn the 
living we are going to live. 

Having assured ourselves of the ex- 
cellence of our town from the essential 
point of its providing us with a living, 
the next question is. what does it 
provide beyond mere living. For es- 
sential as we feel that mere living is, 
that alone will not satisfy us; much 
less will it make others who are al- 
ready making a living elsewhere look 
upon our town with desire. 

Some day the hard-boiled man wakes 
up to find that his associates who have 
made their pile, have moved to some 
other place to spend it, and the fellow 
who is irked by the sight of toil, re- 
alizes that it is on the profits of busi- 
ness that he exists. As these two 
scold each other the audience begins 
to wake up to the fact that business is 
the basis of most of what makes life 
worth living, beauty, art, music; com- 
fortable homes, a gracious social life; 
all these come from the profits of busi- 
ness. And at the same time it wakes 
up to the complementary fact that 
business is not an end in itself, but is 
a means to an end, "that we may live 
more abundantly." 

So we begin to understand that while 
business is the first essential to our 
town, it is not the whole town, and 
consequently instead of spoiling the 
rest of the town it must make the rest 
of the town a better place to live in. I 
am therefore going to suggest an en- 
largement of our first test: 

"While the existence of a town or 
city depends upon business, that ex- 



the 



istenee is not justified unles: 
profits of business make life in that 
town constantly more and more worth 
living."' 

Assuming that we are agreed upon 
this double-barreled proposition, we 
shall proceed by defining a series of ex- 
cellences by which to measure our 
town. 

First Item— My first item in grading 
our town is to assume that it has a 
varietv of industries none of which are 
mutually harmful. A blast furnace and 
a silk mill, for example, do not make 
ideal neighbors. 

Second Item— The industries of our 
town should be those for which the 
town offers peculiar advantages. 

Third Item — Commerce — This is put 
third instead of first because in spite 
of historical development, commerce 
has come to depend, especially In re- 
tail business, somewhat on industry. 

Fourth Item — "Has our town a plan 
which will guide its future growth, and 
regulations which will prevent short- 
sighted and greedy individuals from 
handicapping business and spoiling 
those things upon which we spend the 
profits of business. 

Fifth Item — Does our town have 
good housing? 

Sixth Item— Education — Does our 
town provide enough schools for all its 
children and are all its schools good? 

Other Items — Recreation — Public — 
outdoor, playgrounds, parks, etc. — in- 
door, music, etc. 

Commercial — Bowling alleys, pool 
rooms, movies, theatres, music, etc. 

Public Health— Site of the city, 
natural drainage, water supply, sewage, 
waste disposal, health department. 
Security — Fire, Police-courts- jails. 
Neatness and Repair — Public and 
semi-public buildings — railway station, 
streets and public places, private build- 
ings. . ^. . 

The condition of these indicates 
whether our town has or has not com- 
munity spirit, alertness, self respect. 

Taxes and bonded indebtedness if 
too high indicate slackness in admin- 
istration or worse, indifferent citizen- 
ship, lack of results from expenditures. 
If too low indicate an indifferent 
citizenship and lack of civic pride. 
Municipal expenditures should be in- 
vestments which in large measure pro- 
duce financial results of facilitating 
business and raising values. Some, like 
expenditures on schools, are invest- 
ments in the future. 

Expenditures for present improve- 
ments, like street paving, should be en- 
tirely completed, bonds paid up, during 
the life of the improvement. 

If city has a debt incurred to meet 
current expenses or to pay for im- 
provements which are now used up it 
indicates a low standard of citizenship. 
Beauty — Beauty like happiness is 
best when secured as a by-product. An 
ugly thing is not made beautiful by 
putting a useless ornament on it. Real 
satisfaction comes from having the 
things we use every day beautiful. And 
they will be beautiful if they fully 
meet the needs of use. The present day 
automobile is becoming a thing of 
beauty, but the main consideration is 
that i"t shall be useful. Our town will 
be beautiful when we give enough 
thought to our buildings and to our 
streets to make them fully efficient. 
The trouble now is that they are half 
baked, lick and a promise jobs. 

Individuality — Our town should have 
individuality, not be a copy of some 



other place. If it has a good tradition 
in architecture, follow that tradition, 
don't build an imitation New York 
hotel in Charleston. Make use of 
natural beauties, river, valley, hills, 
etc. They are never quite the same 
as those in other towns. Use local 
names for your streets so that they 
will recall your history or make those 
who repeat them think of your town. 
When one says Fifth Avenue he prob- 
ably thinks of New York, but there are 
a hundred other fifth avenues. When 
one says Peachtree Street he does not 
have to add Atlanta. 

City Government — We won't try to 
set up a score for the government but 
will assume that under our democratic 
system, if the community stands well 
on the other items listed then It must 
have a fairly good government because 
it has a good citizenship. 

Citizenship — Of course we have all 
begun to realize by this time that there 
is no way of getting a good govern- 
ment without have a good, active citi- 
zenship. Perpetual motion is as much 
a dream in civic affairs as it is in 
mechanics. But an active, effective 
citizenship means effort, constructive 
effort. So our town has its quota o( 
civic and social agencies which afford 
opportunity for citizens to choose the 
subjects in which they are most In- 
terested, study them, experiment with 
them, and then, on the basis of know- 
ledge, put them over. So we have a 
live chamber of commerce to present 
the business man's point of view on 
community problems and we have phil- 
anthropic agencies to deal with our 
social problems. 

The Spirit of the People — If there is 
any one thing that makes us want to 
live in a town it is the spirit of the 
people. I put this last because it is 
an intangible and we Americans want 
something we can get a grip on. But 
this intangible is so important that it 
can't be left out. Any one of you who' 
has lived among strangers for awhile 
knows the joy of again being among 
his own people. And our own people 
are those who are friendly, helpful, 
willing to get in and push. That spirit 
is not natural always, but it can be 
cultivated. And where that spirit is 
there is also a good town, the kind of 
town we would like to live in. 



NAIL ROOFING MACHINE 



A new nailing machine that was de- 
signed for roofing work, that feeds 
nails to the hammer as fast as they can 
be driven, and that eliminates holding 
the nail with the fingers, recently was 
announced by the Pearson Manufactur- 
ing Company, Robbinsdale. Minnesota. 

The frame of the machine is made of 
malleable iron, with a galvanized iron 
nail box. The feeders and the nail 
catch are made of steel, with steel 
wire springs. Almost all sizes of roof- 
ing nails may be used in this device, 
with a maximum nail length of 1% 
inches as a possibility. The machine 
is adjustable for any length of nail up 
to this limit. 

When the nail is driven, the device is 
pulled back. This causes the nail 
catch to spring into place, and to feed 
out another nail, ready for the next 
blow. The nailer is provided with 
three convenient holding places. The 
heaviest gloves may be worn by the 
roofer. The manufacturers also make 
shingle nailers and hand tackers that 
are similar to the roofing nailer.

KNUI.VEKIIING PROFESSION UNDER- 
PAID S.\¥!« JOL'UNAI, 



Bureau scientists In Washington, 
conspicuous examples of the faithful 
public servant, work for salaries that 
a selfrespecting plasterer would call 
cigarette money. Research men In 
laboratories of great corporations fare 
better, but by no means well. Engi- 
neering experts In dozen fields, well 
equipped specialists, are often so 111 re- 
warded that they find 11 hard to live In 
modest comfort. 

These conditions are beginning to 
produce the inevitable result. Educa- 
tors who are trying to assist young 
men In their selection of a career are 
telling the truth about the engineering 
professions and are comparing them 
unfavorably with other field of ac- 
tivity. Engineers themselves are 
equally frrnk when advising their 
young friends. Clear-thinking, well- 
trained young men are too precious an 
asset to put into blind-alley jobs. 

Scouts from the great industrial cor- 
porations each Spring look over the 
graduating classes of our technical 
schools with a view to engaging prom- 
ising students. Of late they have been 
complaining of the Insufficiency of the 
material at their disposal. In some 
Instances they have been frankly told 
that they want too much for what they 
are willing to pay and that they can- 
not hope to find their needs fully sup- 
plied until they are prepared to pay a 
fair price for the costly and hard-won 
mental equipment whose benefits they 
desire. 

From colonial times our people have 
had a genius for mechanics, invention 
and applied science. It would be a 
national calamity if we should be so 
shortsighted as to starve out this price- 
less talent. If there is any one thing 
about our social evolution that is cer- 
tain, it is our growing dependence 
upon science to solve the problems of 
peace and war and every-day life. To 
weaken by neglect or indifference those 
powers upon which our future exis- 
tence may depend would be sheer 
folly. — Saturday Evening Post. 



NEW CORK MACHINE BASE 



A cork machine base material ne'wly 
introduced from Europe, where it has 
been used successfully to insulate floors 
against the vibration of machinery, 
now is produced by the Korfund Com- 
pany, 11 Waverly Place, New York 
City. This material Is assembled in 
the form of machine bases of desired 
dimensions, and consists of blocks of 
cork, cut from the bark, 1 9/16 inches 
thick, held rigidly in wrought iron 
frames. The frames are cross-braced 
in both directions, but the resiliency of 
the natural cork practically closes all 
joints, and affords an almost continuous 
surface. 

The cork is impregnated with a pre- 
servative. The machine is bolted to a 
wooden or concrete base, wliich in turn 
is placed upon this cork base, which 
completely isolates the machine from 
the floor, as no bolts pass through the 
cork base. 



MOISTURE ABSORPTION OF TERRA 
COTTA 



The U. S. Bureau of Standards re- 
cently made some tests to determine 
whether the percentage of absorption 
of a small specimen of terra cotta 
could be taken as representative of the 
absorption of the remaining sections of 
the piece. One coping block from each 
of four commercial companies was 
sawed into 18 sections and an absorp- 
tion test made on each section. It was 
found that in a large terra cotta block 
the percentage absorption may vary 2 
per cent. Balusters corresponding to 
the copings have been sawed in half 
and will also be tested for absorption. 



'Separate Contract System" is 

Rapped by Government Agency 



High interest for the entire con- 
struction industry Is held in the fact 
that a government agency has refused 
to accept the theory that economy is 
promoted through the "separate con- 
tract system" under which individual 
agreements would be made between 
owners and those handling distinct in- 
stallations such as plumbing, heating 
equipment, electrical fixtures and 
wiring. 

The Interdepartmental Board of Con- 
tracts and Adjustments, an agency 
created by General Dawes while he was 
head of the Bureau of the Budget has 
adopted a resolution which has the 
effect of refusing to abolish the gen- 
eral contract system from federal con- 
struction operations. This resolution 
was adopted by the board in answer to 
the request for adoption of the sepa- 
rate contracts procedure made by a 
joint committee of the National Asso- 
ciation of Master Plumbers, the Heat- 
ing and Piping Contractors' National 
Association and the Association of 
Elect rogists-lnternational. 

The claims made by this committee 
in favor of the separate contracts sys- 
tem were replied to in a brief filed with 
the board l^y the Associated General 
Contractors of America, it being 
through this brief that a firm case for 
the joint contract system was estab- 
lished. 

The board's decision acquires an 
added importance, it is pointed out, be- 
cause of the effect which it will carry 
into the field of construction work 
other than that carried on by the 
government. 

The text of the resolution, pointed 
to as emphasizing the necessity for 
general contractors' services in build- 
ing operations, follows: 

"WHEREAS a joint comraitte of the 
National Association of Master Plumb- 
ers and the Heating and Piping Con- 
tractors' National Association and the 
Association of Electrogists-Interna- 
tional, has requested the Interdepart- 
mental Board of Contracts and Adjust- 
ments to take such action as will re- 
quire the various departments and in- 
dependent establishments of the Gov- 
ernment, in connection with the per- 
formance of public works, to advertise 
separately, and contract separately, for 
the portions of the work which pertain 
to their respectice specialties; and 

"WHEREAS this board has taken 
this question under careful advisement 
and has heard the arguments of the 
above-mentioned associations; of the 
representatives of the various depart- 
ments and independent establishments 
of the Government; and of numerous 
general contractors; and 

"WHEREAS in view of the evidence 
produced, taken together with the ex- 
perience of competent government of- 
ficials familiar with construction work, 
the board believes that the granting 
of this request of the associations 
above-mentioned would — 

"(a) Unduly restrict the freedom of 
action of the heads of departments; 



"(b) Be of doubtful value from the 
standpoint of actual economy in many, 
if not in the majority, cases; 

"(c) Result in placing responsibil- 
ities and duties upon supervising gov- 
ernment officials which they are not 
always in a position to satisfactorily 
perform; 

"(d) Take away from the Govern- 
ment any advantage which it might 
otherwise secure from the utilization of 
a general contractors' organization and 
powers of properly timing and co- 
ordinating the various parts of the 
work; and 

"(e) Tend to delay the performance, 
give rise to claims for delays of one 
contractor by another, and create dif- 
ficulties which are largely avoided 
when the work is performed under one 
contract. Therefore be it 

"Resolved, That it is the opinion of 
the board that it is to the interest of 
the United States that no action be 
taken which would place any restric- 
tion upon the authority of the heads of 
departments or independent establish- 
ments to exercise discretion as to the 
manner of awarding contracts or sub- 
dividing the work to be done; be it 
furtiier 

"Resolved, That the question of the 
advisability of sub-dividing contracts 
in specific cases be called to the at- 
tention of con'tracting offces in the 
manual of instructions now being pre- 
pared by the board. 

F. L. Cranford, Brooklyn, N. T., 
President of The Associated General 
Contractors of America, commenting 
upon adoption of the resolution, said: 

It is almost axiomatic that states, 
cities and counties should turn to the 
Federal Government in determining 
their practices with respect to contract 
forms and practices in construction. 
Certainly if the Federal Government 
could establish fundamental laws and 
under these laws acceptable standard 
contracts and practices, in due course 
of time the way could be appointed for 
other governmental agencies to do 
likewise. 

If we assume that there had been no 
national organization of general con- 
tractors to present the matter of sepa- 
rate contracts for mechanical equip- 
ment of buildings is it not conceivable 
that the Joint Committee of Master 
Plumbers, heating and piping contrac- 
tors and electrical contractors would 
have fastened on the Federal Govern- 
ment a practice which some of the 
states, unfortunately, have written into 
their laws? Should this practice be- 
come general in all of our govern- 
mental agencies, is it not logical to 
assume that other sub-trades would 
follow in its wake and gradually the 
business of general contracting be 
legislated out of existence? Is it not 
plain that the general contractors who 
work far from the metropolitan cen- 
ters and in small towns, or even in the 
country, are vitally aiiected by such 
procedure as this? 



NATIONAL FOREST HIGHWAYS TO 
BE BUILT IN ARIZONA 



Expenditures totaling ?293,559 of 
forest highway funds for the con- 
struction of 136 miles of roads within 
or adjacent to the National Forests of 
Arizona have just been authorized by 
the Secretary of Agriculture, according 
to an annauncement from the Forest 
Service, United States Department of 
Agriculture. 

One of the projects calls for the 
completion of 86 miles in the Cllfton- 
Springerville section of the Apache 



National Forest. The sum of $73,000 
has been allotted to this work. 

Between Flagstafl and the east 
boundary of the Cocaninoc National 
Forest over 23 miles will be built, for 
which $109,331 has been set aside. This 
road forms an important link in the 
State highway system. 

The sum of $30,000 has been allotted 
to build eight miles along the Grand

Early construction of a $500,000 plant 
in San Francisco for the manufacture 
of varnish is contemplated by the Bass- 
Hueter Paint Company, according to an 
announcement of L. M. DuCommun, 
general manager of the company. A 
3-acre site has already been purchased 
in the vicinity of Amy and Kansas 
streets. The new plant is made neces- 
sary by the rapid increase in business 
throughout the Pacific Coast region, 
South America and Hawaiian Islands. 

To stimulate a greater understand- 
ing and co-operation between the 
various yards and departments of the 
Union Lumber Company, with yards 
and offices at Taft, Delano. McFarland 
and Bakersfleld, S. T. Scofield, general 
manager of the company, has arranged 
a series of monthly luncheons, the first 
of which was held in Bakersfield July 
10. 



Shaw-Bertram Lumber Company of 
Klamath Palls, Ore., has purchased 50- 
acre site about 3 miles' from Klamath 
Palls and plans early construction of 
a box factory with a daily capacity of 
150,000 board feet. Six cut-off saws 
will be installed, J. R. Shaw, manager 
of the company, announces. 



Standard Staff & Stone Co. announces 
it has boueht all the assets of The 
Plastique Arts, Inc., formerly at 1028 
W. First St., and has moved them to its 
new building, 227 S. Alvarado St., Los 
Angeles. 

Jerome C. Amundsen and Garland W. 
Boggan have formed a partneship and 
will operate under the trade name of 
"Aetna Hardwood Floor Company" 
with headquarters at 1282 California 
street, San Francisco. 



I'rovision for Federal aid for the 
fiscal year 1925 which begins on July 1, 
is made in the Agricultural Appropria- 
tion Bill signed by the President on 
June 5. The bill authorizes the Sec- 
restary of Agriculture to apportion to 
the States immediately the $7o,000,000 
authorized by the Post Office Appro- 
priation Act of June 19, 1922, and ap- 
propriates .$13,000,000 to be immediately 
available, the remainder to be made 
available in later appropriations. The 
Secretary signed the apportionment 
order June 6, and as a result there 
will be no interruption to Federal-aid 
road work. , . ,i. 

The apportionment is made to tne 
States on the same basis as for pre- 
ceding years, except Hawaii is for the 
first time admitted to a share which is 
on the same basis as for the States. 
This has been provided for in an act of 
the present session of Congress. 

Since 1916 a total of $540,000,000 has 
been made available by previous acts 
of Congress, and the Bureau of Public 
Koads of the United States Department 
of Agriculture which administers these 
funds reports the status on May 31 as 
follows: Completed 32,099 miles, under 
construction 17,000 miles, approved for 
construction, 2518 miles, and $33,106,- 
126 available for new projects. 

Practically all of the old funds arid 
the entire amount of the new funds 
have been or will be expended on the 
Federal-aid highway system of the 
United States. This system provided for 
by the Federal Highway Act of 1921 
consists of approximately 170,000 miles 
of road and has been designated by the 
States and approved by the Federal 
Government. At the beginning of the 
present year it was estimated that 60,- 
000 miles of the system had been sur- 
faced, about 8700 miles graded, leaving 
110,000 to be surfaced. Some of this 
work had been done by the States in- 
dependent of Federal aid. To surface 
the remaining 110,000 miles by 1934 
will require an annual program of 
11,000 miles. 

The new legislation carries an ap- 
propriation of $6,000,000 for national 
forest roads and trails, $3,500,000 of 
this amount being the remainder of the 
$6,500,000 authorized for the current 



New box plant of the California Door 
Company, built to replace structure re- 
cently destroyed by nre, is now in 
operation at Diamond Springs, El Do-

79 Pacific Coast Cities in June 

Expend $34,690,334 for Building 



Plant of the Basalt Rock Company 
near Napa will be in operation August 
1, it Is announced. The plant was 
established at a cost of $160,000. 



Jas. Harris and W. A. Cassin will 
shortly open the Reliable Fire Retard- 
ment Paint Company at 1800 Nevin 
Ave., Richmond. 



Pacific Gas Appliance Company has 
opened its new warehouse and shop 
building at Nineteenth and Market Sts., 
Oakland. H. S. Harris is president of 
the company. 



A total of $34,690,334 in building 
permits issued in 79 cities of the Pa- 
cific Coast during June indicates a 
continuance of the conservative policy 
on the part of builders which has 
marked the records of the past three 
months. Students of business economics 
comparing this situation with the ex- 
tensive building activities of the pre- 
vious year, consider it indicative of 
a very healthful condition destined to 
prevent a threatened overbuilding and 
to maintain a stable balance in im- 
proved values as well as in employ- 
ment of labor. 

An analysis of the June building fig- 
ures reported in the Pacific Coast 
Section of the National Monthly Build- 
ing Survey of S. W. Straus & Co., 
shows, for these cities as a whole, a 
14% reduction from the total for May- 
a 28% reduction from that of last June 
and a slight reduction from June of 
1922, although 33 cities report gains 
over May, the most notable among 
them being Los Angeles, San Diego, 
Salt Lake, Tacoma and Oakland, and 
'6 show gains over June of last year. 

Los Angeles, with $10,292,542 for 
June, shows a 17% gain over May but a 
31% loss from the record of last June. 
In the Los Angeles metropolitan area. 



15 municipalities show a June total of 
$13,995,126, 9% more than the May fig- 
ures and 28% less than those of last 

San Francisco reports $3,899,374 for 
June, a 28% reduction from May's rec- 
ord and 7% less than for last June. In 
the San Francisco Bay Area, 14 munici- 
palities show a June total of $8,072,212, 
which is 18% less than the total for 
May and 8% less than for last June. 

Portland's $2,344,290 for June is 7% 
less than the May total but 8% greater 
than that of last June and 5% over 
June of 1922. 

Salt Lake City, with $561,245 for 
June, shows gains of S% over May. 7% 
over last June and 25% over June of 
the previous year. 

Oakland reports $2,527,008 for June, 
a 12% gain over May but 8% less than 
last June and 25% less than for June 
of 1922. 

Long Beach, reporting $1,515,232 for 
June, shows reductions of 25% from 
May and 55% from last June but a 34% 
gain over June of the previous year. 

Seattle's June total of $2,094,350 is 
55% less than the May total, 59% less 
than that of last June and 27% under 
that of June. 1922.

Remixes Concrete 

When materials have passed through mixing process 
once, and come to discharging side of the drum, 
the reversed discharge chute sprays them back to 
the charging side for repeated trips through the 5- 
action, remixing process. This spraying-showering 
action, at the same time prevents separation of aggre- 
gate according to size. To the last shovelful of every 
batch, Koehring-mixed concrete is uniform, re-mixed 
concrete — dominant strength concrete— and to every 
last casting and bearing, the Koehring is the heavy 
duty mixer of trouble-proof, long service life.

PATE ROAD CAMP.S ATTRACT WIDE 
ATTENTION 



The far oft Philippines is the latest 
overnment to become interested in the 
risen road camp work of the Cali- 
jmia Highway Commission. Hon. 
.amon Victorio, director of prisons for 
ae Philippine Islands, is in California 
nd will inspect one and possibly more 
it the prison T-oad camps and make a 
iTorough study of the California con- 
ict pay law system. 

California has been using convicts 
j-om the state prisons to help build 
liountain roads since 1915. and in 1923 
egan to pay the men a small wage for 
leir services. Economies effected in 
le camps have made it possible for the 
len to make net earnings not to ex- 
;ed 75 cents a day without increasing 
le cost of the work to the state. Wide 

iread interest has been manifested 
1 the California plan and such men as 
udge Ben Lindsey of Denver have 
isited the state to inspect the road 

ork being done by convict labor. 



OS ANGELES PAA'ING PROGRAM 
BREAKS RECORO 



The greatest paving activity in the 
istory of the engineering department 
the city of Los Angeles continued 
jring the last fiscal year, ended June 
1, 1924, according to the annual report 
■ City Engineer John A. Griffin, which 
IS just been filed with the city council 
t the close of the year there were 119 
)ntracts aggregating $5,974,287 under 
ay, as compared with contracts 
italing $4,017,237 under way at the 
Id of the previous fiscal year. 



Southern California during the first 
six months of 1924 has contracted for 
more than $5,000,000 of road work, one- 
third of which has been from state 
funds, and the remaining two-thirds 
provided by the counties. This money 
will be applied on the construction and 
improvement of more than 350 miles 
of highway, involving 46 different pro- 
jects. 

In addition to this road work con- 
tracts were let for 13 bridges totaling 
nearly 1200 feet in length and involv- 
ing an expenditure of more than $124,- 
000. 

These figures are compiled by the 
engineering department of the Auto- 
mobile Club of Southern California. 

The state projects approximate $1.- 
750,000 and include 11.9 miles of gravel 
road in Imperial county; 27.5 miles of 
cement and asphalt concrete and grad- 
ing in Los Angeles county; 21.2 miles 
of grading and Portland cement con- 
crete in Orange county; 24.6 miles of 
grading, cement concrete, widening 
and sea wall in Ventura county. In 
Orange county, also, the state Is build- 
ing a 522-foot bridge across the Santa 
Ana river. 

County highway construction shows 
40 Vs miles of asphalt concrete in Kern 
county; approximately 48 miles of road 
work in Los Angeles county of prac- 
tically all classes; 13 miles of gravel- 
ing, asphalt and cement concrete, and 
widening in Orange county; nearly six 
miles of macadam In Riverside county; 
132 miles of repairing and macadam, 
and macadam and oil in San Bernar- 
dino countj'; five miles of cement con- 
crete in San Diego county; 25 miles of 
macadam in Santa Tnez valley in San- 
ta Barbara county, and three miles of 
asphalt macadam in Ventura county. 



END OF IRON TRADES STRIKE IN 
NEW YORK LOOMS 



That the end of the long drawn out 
strike of structural iron workers of 
New York is not far off is the opinion 
of those who have closely followed the 
situation there. The members of the 
Iron League, the organization employ- 
ing structural iron workers have been 
fighting ever since the strike started, 
not only to keep wages in that craft 
from going up, but also to keep the 
erection of structural steel on the 
open shop basis. 

More than 1000 men are now work- 
ing on contracts for members of the 
League. The bricklayers failed to re- 
spond to orders to walk out on jobs 
which were being manned by non- 
union iron ■workers, and with the ex- 
ception of the hoisting engineers, all 
the other trades are working on jobs 
where the steel is being erected by 
members of the Iron League. 

The Supreme Court of New York has 
been asked by the Iron League to re- 
strain the structural steel workers 
from interfering with, or intimidating 
its men, and to decide against the 
closed shop as unconstitutional. In the 
event the League is successful in the 
court, action will likely be brought 
against the structural iron workers 
union for damages. 



Bidding without competition, the 
Ewauna Box Company of Klamath 
Falls, Ore,, was found to have offered 
the government the record beating 
price of $6.67 per 1,000 feet for yellow 
and sugar pine timber when the bid 
was opened at the Klamath agency. 
The company bid on approximately 
400,000,000 feet of timber included In 
the Long Prairie unit on the Klamath 
Indian Reservation. 

The Fremont Land Company of Fre- 
mont, Minn., was the highest bidder on 
310.000,000 feet in the North Marsh 
unit, offering $5.53 on yellow and 
white pine timber. 

For Douglas Fir and incense cedar 
on the Long Prairie unit, the Ewauna 
company bid $4 per 1000. For similar 
timber on the North Marsh Unit, the 
Fremont Company bid $2.50 per 1,000. 

Other bidders on the North Marsh 
unit were the Lamm Lumber Company 
of Klamath Falls, $5.35 for pine; Topsy 
Lumber Company, $5.28; W. C. Hopkins, 
Spokane, Wash., $5.27; Pelican Bay 
Lumber Company, Klamath Falls, $5.17. 

The bids will be submitted to Chas. 
H. Burke, commissioner of Indian af- 
fairs at Washington, D. C, for final 
decision. 



RUSTLESS STEEL IS AIM OF NEW 
PROCESS 



Steel men of Pittsburgh, Pa., are 
watching with interest the tests that 
are being made on a large scale in 
some of the large steel mills of a new 
process for making stainless steel and 
iron. 

Stainless steel has been made, but it 
has been confined to cutlery and small 
fittings, due to the high cost of its 
production. By the new method the 
cost has been reduced, according to the 
inventor, Ronald Wild of Sheffield, so 
that rustless tubes, automobiles and 
even battle and other ships are pos- 
sible. 

The inventor says the process con- 
sists essentially in the reduction of 
chromite or chrome iron ore in its 
mined condition by means of a lo"w car- 
bon silicon reducer, associated with the 
melting of an initial bath of metal by 
means of electric or other form of ex- 
ternal heating to insure a residual lo^v 
carbon and lo'w silicon final metal con- 
taining the desired percentages of 
chromium. 



RECORD LUIUBER CUT FOR SUGAR 
PINE MILL 



The Norwegian motorship George 

Washington will arrive in Seattle 

shortly with a cargo of 2000 tons of 
Belgium cement. 



By cutting an average of 14,000,000 
feet a month, the Sugar Pine Lumber 
Company's Pinedale plant in Fresno 
county, is producing more lumber than 
any other pine mill in the state, ac- 
cording to W. F. Baird, assistant gen- 
eral manager. 

"This mill cut more lumber than any 
other mill in the state during May and 
June," Baird says, "and we are main- 
taining an average of fourteen million 
feet a month, with two shifts working 
constantly. Lumber is moving out of 
the yards in fair quantities and most 
of it is going East." 

Asked whether there was any indi- 
cation of the mill closing down because 
of over production of lumber, Baird 
said there was no consideration of 
such action at this time.

Highway contracts in Washington 
state are cutting the cost of ivork on 
state roads, according to word from 
Seattle. Contractors believe lower 
prices will prevail durmg the rest ot 
the present year, but are cautious 
about predicting figures on next sea- 
son's work. Structural steel and steel 
for reinforcement used in bridge work 
has declined sharply, according to re- 
ports. It is estimated that a saving of 
$10,000 was made in the Nooksack 
bridge contract because ot falling 
prices. Reinforcement steel now is 
down to the 1913 level it is said. 



The Interior Department has awarded 
to the Ewauna Box Company of Kla- 
math Palls, Ore., a contract for cutting 
385,000,000 feet of timber on 4500 acres 
of unallotted land in the Long Prairie 
unit of the Klamath Indian reservation. 
Prices to be paid are $6.87 a thousand 
feet for yellow and sugar pine, $4 for 
Douglas flr and incense cedar and $1 
for other species, the highest ever paid 
for this class of timber in Oregon, The 
receipts will go to the Indians. 

Robert Proctor, superintendent of 
buildings in Seattle, has issued a warn- 
ing to contractors concerning the ce- 
ment they use. Proctor warns against 
the use of cements tliat have not been 
tested by the American Society for 
testing Materials. The four brands 
sold on the Seattle market that come 
up to the requirements are "Superior," 
"Olympic," "Christiana" and "Condor,"

Declaring that the Taft-Greenfleld 
Highway, now under construction, is 
not up to standard, Ralph C. Meyers, 
secretary of the Kern County Chapter, 
American Association of Engineers, has 
addressed a letter to the Kern County 
Board of Supervisors, at the direction 
of the association, urging the county 
governing body to verify the state- 
ments. It is alleged in the communi- 
cation that numerous rock pockets are 
in evidence; that the road has not been 
properly rolled, thus making it thinner 
in some portions than in others, and 
that edge of the highway can be 
crumpled by a man's weight. The su- 
pervisors deferred action on the 
charges until July 28th. 



Preliminary permits for a hydro-

tro-Metals Company of San Francisco. 
The permits cover three power dams 
and construction involving an expendi- 
ture of $15,000,000. It is proposed to 
develop 125,000 horsepower for use in 
the manufacture of niter and produces

AL.\MED-\ COl'NTV Pl-l MBERS TO 
ERECT KEW HOME 



Tentative plans for the erection of 
an association home are announced by 
otHcers of the Master Plumbers' Asso- 
ciation of Alameda County. Member- 
ship of the association has been ma- 
terially augmented during the last 
year, according to President L. J. 
Kruse, and it is proposed to erect a 
home that will comprise an assembly 
hall, committee rooms, lecture room 
and library. Provision also is to be 
made for the holding of night classes 
tor those who care to avail themsel- 
ves of the opportunity. 

At a recent meeting of the associa- 
tion Kruse was elected president; W. 
H. Picard, vice-president: J. B. Morse, 
secretary: A. H. MclCnown, treasurer 
and P. H. Blake, sergeant-at- arms. 



Refusal of Seattle., Wash., building 
contractors to grant an increase of $1 
a day to sheet metal workers may re- 
sult in a strike, according to word 
from that city. The scale has been 
J8.50 a day and the men ask $9.50. Con- 
tractors assert they do not think con- 
ditions warrant an increase. Many 
large building projects will be affected 
by the strike, if called, but contrac- 
tors expect to be able to continue op- 
erations without serious delay. 



National Electric Light Association 
with headquarters in New York City 
has been invited by the San Francisco 
Chamber of Commerce to hold its 1925 
convention in San Francisco. In a 
letter received by Robt. Newton Lynch, 
vice-president of the chamber, Frank 
T. Clifford, president of the association, 
declared the organization will meet in 
either Portland, Ore., or San Francisco. 
An announcement will be made shortly 
as to which city receives the honor. 



In accordance with its policy of fur- 
nishing a guarantee to the public that 
the work of its members will be prop- 
erly performed the Master Plumbers' 
Association of Alameda county is ar- 
ranging to bond each of its members. 
This bond will cover the various con- 
tracts undertaken, and can be levied 
upon in the event the plumber is 
found to be at fault in his work. 



American Plan Progress is 

Reported by Industrial Ass'n. 

BY KRA>t I.S J. BAKKK, I'RFiSIDENT. IXDI STRIAL ASSOCIATION OF SAN 
FI«.\NCISCO 

so that American Plan foundries are 
rapidly becoming superior to any 
others on the Pacific Coast, and up to 
standard of best foundries in the United 
States, and are thereby securing work 
heretofore done elsewhere on the 
Pacific Coast and in the East. 

Settled numerous incipient contro- 
versies which might otherwise have led 
to serious industrial strife. 

Protected the workers' interests, and 
co-operated with workers by adjusting 
their grievances, by preventing any 
discrimination between union and non- 
union men; and by absolutely enforcing 
the eight hour day, good wages and 
decent working conditions. 

Protected the public interest so 
thoroughly that while building permits 
have steadily increased and the entire 
community has prospered greatly and 
progressed rapidly, strikes have been 
almost wholly eliminated. Indeed, San 
Francisco went through the year 1923 
without a single job or jurisdictional 
strike in the entire building industry; 
and is the only large known city in the 
4.nglo-Saxon world where union and 
non-union building trades workers, In 
the same craft, work side by side on 
the same job. 

This, in brief, is the record of con- 
structive accomplishment which the In- 
dustrial Association can point to as It 
concludes the third year of its com- 
munity endeavor. That it has rendered 
an invaluable service both to San 
Francisco and the whole country is at- 
tested by the fact that its membership 
is constantly increasing and that it is 
being called on more and more for 
counsel and guidance by industrial 
leaders of other large communities. 
For instance: within the past year it 
has been asked by representatives of 
three foreign governments to furnish 
details of its method of organization 
and operation; and its trainin»- school 
program has been adopted by at least 
a dozen large cities throughout the 
country. 



Rounding out the third year of its 
existance, the Industrial Association of 
San Francisco presents the following 
record of constructive achievement: 

Settled city-wide building trades 
strike of 1921 by establishing American 
Plan in building industry; thereby 
abolishing all artificial and autocratic 
union rules and regulations curtailing 
efliciency and limiting output; includ- 
ing rules and regulations rigidly re- 
stricting admission of apprentices to 
the several building trades. 

Provided impartial machinery for 
establishing wages in building trades, 
and enforcement of wages thus estab- 
lished. 

Maintained free trade schools for 
plasterers, plumbers, painters, paper- 
hangers, bricklayers, tailors, molders, 
tilesetters and housesmiths; from 
which liave been graduated some 1,000 
apprentices and in which approximate- 
ly VOO are still taking training. 

Effectuated American Plan in whole 
or in part in the following (in addition 
to the building industry) industries: 
Lithographic, cigar, shoe, garment, taxi- 
cab, metal, warehouse, glass, lumber, 
hotel and restaurant, and candy. 

Effected a plan of employment in- 
surance, by means of which it has been 
possible for the first time to offer to 
building trades workers group insur- 
ance at rates of 60 to 80% less than 
ordinary insurance could be purchased, 
and under which thousands of building 
trades workers have secured policies 
covering death and total disability. 

Established a safety service to sup- 
plement safety inspection by the state 
and municipality; to the end that the 
hazards of industry may be reduced to 
the smallest possible minimum. 

Maintained a free employment bureau 
which has placed more than 20,000 men 
and furnished help in all lines with no 
expense either to employers or em- 
ployes. 

Effected a comprehensive improve- 
ment program for foundry operations. 



^VHO O-tVNS THE WATER? 



PACIFIC N. W. LtlSIBBR TRADE 



One of the most expensive and bit- 
terly contested series of water law- 
suits in Utah finally grew out of a 
case involving a stream of water that 
failed; even distant hydroelectric 
companies, the Salt Lake City corpora- 
tion, the State of Utah, and the United 
States Government taking a so-called 
friendly hand because of the dangerous 
precedent that might be established in 
a decision. The controversy, not yet 
settled, revolves to a large extent 
around precipitation records of the 
Weather Bureau of the United States 
Department of Agriculture. A mining 
company developed a goodly stream ot 
water in its underground workings, and 
simultaneously a mountain stream near 
by, used for irrigation, failed ap- 
preciably. The miners sought to re- 
tain ownership to the water and to 
establish the fact that dry weather had 
caused the Irrigation stream to 
dwindle. Was the tunnel flow de- 
veloped at the expense of the natural 
stream discharge or are these phenom- 
ena masked by a fluctuating precipita- 
tion? 



Lumber production in Western 
Washington and Oregon for the first 
six months of this year was 3.06 per 
cent less than for the same period in 
1923, according to reports issued by the 
West Coast Lumbermen's Association, 
which said that sales have been 9.97 
per cent less than in 1923, and ship- 
ments f.l6 per cent lower than the 
same period last year. 

One hundred and fifty-six lumber 
mills in Washington reported an in- 
creased lumber cut of more than 14% 
per cent in 1923 over the preceding 
year, according to figures compiled by 
the Census Bureau, in collaboration 
with the Forest Service, received by the 
Seattle Chamber of Commerce. 

The average national increase in 
lumber cut in 1923 was nearly 14 per 
cent greater than 1922, said reports 
from 733 mil-Is. 

Forty-five mills in Califoraia re- 
ported an increase of nearly 22 per 
cent; ten in Idaho, a gain of 33% per 
cent; seventy-six in Oregon, 29 Vi per 
cent, and Louisiana and Missouri the 
only States to report a decrease.

"Estimating BuUamg (,'o.st.s and Ap- 
praising Buildings," by Frank E. 
Barnes, was written to aid the con- 
tractor or the estimator in determining 
the amount of labor required for the 
various building operations, to furnish 
him with prices of labor and materials 
that will enable him to check his esti- 
mates, and to equip him with full data 
on present day costs of replacing var- 
ious types of existing buildings built 
between 1890 and 1923 that will serve 
both as the basis of appraisals and ^s 
checks and guides in estimating simi- 
lar buildings. The book is published 
by the McGraw-Hill Book Company, 
Inc., 370 Seventh Ave., New York City. 



Columbia Metal Box Company, 226 
E. 144th street, New York City, has 
published a new and attractive 20- 
page catalog on Columbia Steel Medi- 
cine Cabinets. The catalog illustrates 
and describes the Columbia cabinets 
and includes instruction on their in- 
stallation.

KXTRA GA.S TAX FOR HIGHWAYS 
IS CO;VTEMPl,ATED 



Practically unanimous sentiment In 
favor of jumping the California state 
gasoline tax to 3 cents a gallon to 
finance future road work has been 
found by Governor Richardson's special 
committee investigating the state high- 
way system. 

In every county visited, the com- 
mittee found opposition to additional 
bond issues for road purposes. The 
committee will recommend against the 
bond issue system of financing high- 
way work, Geo. Radcliff, a member of 
the committee declares. 

The plan under consideration con- 
templates that the entire proceeds of 
the additional cent gasoline tax shall 
go to the state for new construction 
purposes, the other two cents being 
split between the state and counties at 
at present for maintenance purposes. 

The additional cent and possibly 
doubling of the flat $3 license fee is ex- 
pected to raise $10,000,000 annually for 
construction purposes. 



Engineers who have been experi- 
menting with various materials for 
use in making pipe joints in concrete 
and terra cotta sewer pipes have found 
that asphalt makes an ideal pipe joint 
where dry, shifting ground, wet trench 
conditions, unstable or quicksand con- 
ditions exist. 

At one time Portland cement 'was 
used almost exclusively for making 
joints in sewer pipes. Recent investi- 
gations have shown that while this ma- 
terial makes a watertight joint under 
normal conditions, the concrete cracks 
causing openings at the joints when 
the sewer pipes are subjected to the 
least settlement. 

On the other hand, an asphalt pipe 
joint is flexible and will remain tight 
in spite of a several inch settlement in 
sewer pipes with the result that in- 
filtration of ground water into sewers 
during wet seasons is prevented. 
Watertight joints also prevent fine 
roots of trees from penetrating and 
forcing their way into sewer pipes. 



Winter Month Building is 

Urged By Secretary of Commerce 



Lengthening the building season in 
the United States to include the winter 
months, is advocated by Secretary of 
Commerce Herbert Hoover, as a means 
of mitigating seasonal ups and downs 
in the construction industry, of stabi- 
lizing employment in the building 
trades and lowering costs of production 
and building. 

.Secretary Hoover's statement based 
on, and supplemental to, the report and 
recommendations of 'the Committee on 
Seasonal Operation in the Construction 
Industries, appointed by him as an 
outgrowth of the President's Confer- 
ence on Unemployment, called in 1921, 
urges elimination of wastes caused by 
seasonal idleness through development 
of information as to probable future 
demands for labor and materials and 
the development of the habit of schedu- 
ling construction and repair work with 
reference to the demand. He reiterates 
the Committee's fljiding that custom 
rather than bad weather is responsible 
for building trades workers in most 
American cities working less than 
three-quarters of the year. 

Calling construction the balance 
wheel of American industry, and plac- 
ing the value of yearly construction in 
the United States at more than five 
billion dollars and the number of 
workers engaged in construction and 
manufacturing industries allied to 
building as mounting into the millions. 
Secretary Hoover declares activity in 
construction bears a close relation to 
general industrial conditions and that 
irregularity in the ebb and flow in de- 
mand for construction seasonally to a 
large degree affects economic stability. 
In his foreword to the report, Sec- 
retary Hoover said;: 

"The need to eliminate the wastes of 
seasonal idleness has been brought 
forcibly to the attention of the con- 
struction industry and the public by 
reason of high labor costs and the fail- 
ure of the building trades to attract 
young men to their ranks." Prescrib- 
ing a remedy he declares: "Lengthen- 
ing the building season will mean 
greater production from the men now 
engaged in the building trades and 
will also go far to attract capable 
apprentices." 

Secretary Hoover outlined the danger 
of seasonal instability in building, 
stating that : "It building falls off, 
there is bound to be a slackening in 
many other lines of industry, resulting 
in unemployment, decreased purchasing 
power of employees, and further de- 
pression." 

He cited the need of organized com- 
munity effort by representatives of 
the construction industries, the profes- 
sions concerned and the public to find 
the facts as to local handicaps, peaks 
and depressions of employment and 
kinds of construction needed for elimi- 
nation of wasteful customs. He urged 
public works as especially well adapted 
for scheduling with reference to sea- 
sonal as well as cyclical conditions, 
contending that efforts to encourage 
long-range planning of public works 
deserve support of the public, legisla- 
tors and public officials. 

Explaining that remedy does not lie 
in any form of government regulation, 
the functions of the Committee are de- 
fined as having been to determine facts 
and "to point a remedy that is con- 
sonant with our national conception of 
individual and community initiative." 
"The service rendered to our whole 



economic life by the elimination of 
these gigantic wastes and the conscious 
planning to overcome these irregu- 
larities, the improved conditions of 
labor, which is possible not only in 
actual construction but in the material 
manufacturing Industries, the lowered 
costs of production and of building 
which could result therefrom, are 
great warranty for such co-operation," 
Secretary Hoover concluded. 

The report sets forth that many sea- 
sonal ups and downs are preventable, 
that the past winter showed greater 
activity than ever before in what had 
been normally a dull season and this 
winter activity exerted a stimulating 
effect on building-material producer- 
and transportation comjianies and theii 
employees. The report related that con- 
struction coinpanies are awake to pos- 
sibilities of winter activity and deserv. 
the support and co-operation of th. 
building public. It is explained thf 
ups and downs place the heaviest bui - 
den on the employees and the pul>lic. 

Bad weather effects on building hav. 
been greatly reduced, according to lh( 
report, which further holds that "with 
due precautions and proper equipment 
nearly all construction work can b. 
carried on in winter and at no gre:i 
difference in cost." 

"As the methods of handlnig winter 
wi>rk develop, and as manufacturers, 
supply dealers and labor take more in- 
terest in encouraging winter work. 
I be cost can be appreciably reduced." 
the Committee found. 

The report explains that bankers may 
aid in cutting down the waste in con- 
struction costs by applying a wider 
knowledge, now available, of data re- 
garding characteristic trends in the 
cim.struction industries. 

"Forethought in planning ahead and 
use of information as to the sea.sonal 
trends will reduce interest on invest- 
inents and will release investment 
funds for other productive uses," it is 
explained in this relation. "Trustees 
and others charged with large financial 
responsibilities have an opportunity 
and a responsibility for cutting down 
the present wastes." 

Regarding public utilities, it is ad- . 
vised that the single leasing date be 
attacked as a demoralizing influence on 
seasonal currents of construction. 

"Evidence is lacking," according to 
the report that "public utilities in gen- 
eral authorize the erection of buildings 
at other times than the usual building 
season," and "they might well set up 
'expansion reserves' as a practical and 
profitable means for constructing ad- 
ditions during low seasonal and cyclical 
periods." 

The Committee in its report states 
that out of 200 engineers in all parts 
of the country who replied to the Com- 
mittee's questions "Are public improve- 
ments rushed right along in the peaks 
of the annual building season?" one 
hundred ninety-two answered in the 
aflirmative and the comment was 
frankly added that public works are 
undertaken without regard to private 
needs. 

^The committee is of the opinion that 
the need for public works is easily 
foreseen and that public officials re- 
sponsible be given every aid so that 
they can let public works contracts 
when the work can be performed 
economically and with least interfer- 
ence with private construction. 



THE TRUTH HURTS 



Mr. Smith was a hard-hearted 
Contractor. One day one of his asso 
elates started twitting him about : 
de-al that he had been concerned in. 

"They're telling all kinds of lie;

"What are you going to do about it'.'" 
"Do?" he replied coolly, "I'm going 
to do nothing. I don't care how many 
lies they tell about me; it's the truth 
I'm frightened of." — Pittsburgh Chron-

Demand For U. S. Electrical Equipment 



Exportation of $70,000,000 worth of 
electrical machinery and apparatus in 
the fiscal year 1924 against $25,000,000 
in 1914 and $10,000,000 in 1904 lllus- 
tralos the rapid increase in world use 
of our electrical apparatus of every 
day requirements of man the world 
over. American electric fans are buz- 
zing in the tropics the world around; 
American cooking and heating devices 
are minimizing the duties of the home 
from the equator to the artics; Ameri- 
can lamps are lighting the cities and 
villages and homes in the most dis- 
tant countries and colonies of the 
world, and our motor driven house- 
hold devices are lightening the cares of 
the housewife from the Occident to the 
orient and from the far north to the 
most distant south. 

Just a few illustrations, says the 
Trade Record of The National City 
Rank of New York, will show the ex- 
tent to which the world is giving 
recognition to the ingenuity of the 
American inventor and the integrity of 
the American manufacturer whose ma- 
chinery is accepted on the opposite side 
of the globe with a full confidence of 
its qualities. Take the electric fan 
for example, which has just made its 
"highest record" in cooling the fevered 
brows of the assembled politicians of 
the United States; we sold nearly a 
million dollars worth of them to other 
lands for like purposes in the fiscal 
year just ended, sending them not only 
to every corner of the tropics but to 
all sections of the inhabited world, in- 
cluding Finland and Yukon at the 
north and the southern tip of Africa 
at the south. The housewives of all 
parts of the globe are demanding 
American motor-driven household de- 



vices to the tune of nearly a million 
dollars a year, and they went in the 
latest year for which details are 
available to practically all the coun- 
tries of the world, to our next door 
neighbor at the north, Canada, to 
practically all our Latin American 
neighbors at the south, and to India, 
Ceylon, China, Japan, Hongkong, 
Kwangtung, Australia, New Zeland. 
Egp.vt and South Africa. Electrical 
cooking and heating apparatus are 
also in demand in the households the 
world over, and the latest record in- 
dicates that a million dollars worth 
were exported in the year just ended, 
going to 70 different countries extend- 
ing the world over. The 5V4 million elec- 
tric lamps exported light cities and 
villages and homes in not only all the 
grand divisions but in the smallest and 
most distant islands of the Pacific 
and Indian Oceans. 

Of course the demand for radio and 
wireless apparatus comes in increasing 
intensity and from every country of the 
globe, and the $4,000,000 worth sent 
out of the country in the fiscal year 
1924 went to 60 countries including the 
Azores, Iceland, Honduras, Java, India, 
Straits Settlements, China, Hongkonk, 
the Philippine Islands and Siam. The 
doctors of the world around are showing 
their appreciation of American thera- 
peutic apparatus and x-ray machines 
and took a million dollars worth in the 
year just ended. 

The number of countries, colonies, 
protectorates and mandated territories 
to whicli our electrical devices were 
sent in 1922, the latest year for which 
oflicial details are available, was 109, 
distributed over the entire inhabitated 
world.

SACRAMENTO C;iTY PLANNING 
BOARD RESIGNS 

Five members of the Sacramento 
City Planning Commission have ten- 
deied their resignations to the city 
council asking that they be made ef- 
fective immediately. The commission- 
ers declared their labors were in vain, 
in as much, as the city council reject- 
ed eighteen of twenty-four recommen- 
dations submitted during the five 
months of its career. 

The city council, according to re- 
ports, instead of accepting the resigna- 
tions, will, at its next meeting, author- 
ize the preparation of an ordinance re- 
pealing the present ordinance which 
creates the planning commission. The 
ordinance will be recommended, it is 
said, by C. H. S. Bidwell, councilman, 
who asserts that "a planning commis- 
sion is useless."

way department. One contractor re-
