PWA Approves $14,720,000 Loans 

For S. F. Water and Sewer Systems 



Financing for extensions to the San Francisco water and sewer 
systems to cost $14,720,000 was approved by Public Works Adminis- 
trator Harold Ickes, according to news dispatches received last night 
from Washington. The two projects receiving the Federal approval 
are part of those fo which bonds were voted November 7. 



The city was unable to obtain 
an acceptable bid for the bonds 
from banks and appealed to the 
government for a loan on the se- 
curities. The Public Works Ad- 
ministration already had grantel 
30 percent of the cost of labor and 
materials prior to the bond elec- 
tion. 

Following are the projects for 
which money now is available: 

1. A new bay crossing pipeline 
near Dumbarton bridge to increase 
the pipeline capacity of the munic- 
ipal water department to 90,000,000 
gallons daily. The new line will 
cost $4,702,000. 

2. The Crystal Springs - Univer- 
sity Mound pipeline, $2,556,000. 

3. University M o u n d reservoir 



addition and a new Sunset District 
reservoir, $2,470,000. 

4. Extensions of the main pipe- 
line system of the city, replacing 
wornout mains and making general 
improvements, to cost $2,367,000. 

The sewer funds, $2,625,000, in- 
clude these divisions: 

Reconstruction of existing sew- 
ers, $972,000; sewage treatment 
and disposal, $1,170,000, and new 
construction, $356,000. 

Plants to be erected for treat- 
ment and disposal of sewage will 
eliminate unsanitary conditions at 
Baker's Beach and the Marina. Re- 
construction will include 5th, Bran- 
nan, 6th, 16th and ISth St. sewers. 



CWA SURVEY OF 

REAL PROPERTY 

TO AID BUILDING 



Recovery in the building indus- 
try will be hastened by the com- 
pletion of the national real prop- 
erty inventory which is authorized 
as a' Civil Works project, accord- 
ing to ofTicials of the Bureau of For- 
eign &'. Domestic Commerce which 
will conduct the survey with the 
aid of the Census Bureau. 

The inventory will include stu- 
dies in the cities of Sacramento 
and San Diego to be directed from 
the San Francisco office of the 
commerce bureau. A representa- 
tive of the Census Bureau is ex- 
pected here immediately to direct 
this portion of the work. 

Other western cities selected for 
study are Phoenix, Boise, Reno, 
Butte, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, 
Portland, Salt Lake City and Se- 
attle. 

Data from the survey will be 
made available as soon as possible 
to public and private interests. The 
information compiled will relate to 



the location and character of struc- 
tures in typical communities, deal- 
ing with occupancy, vacancy, tani- 
ily unit, extent of double-up type 
of building, material of construc- 
tion, condition of structure, epoch, 
services such as elevators, heating 
apparatus, fuel used, water supply, 
refrigeration, sanitary facilities, 
transportation, number of auxiliary 
buildings on premises, rentals, val- 
ue and ownership. 

Architects are expected to find 
the data particularly valuable in 
stimulating proposals for rectifica- 
tion of blighted areas and replace- 
ment of obsolete structures. 

Cities will be encouraged to aid 
in the utilization of local studies, , 
formation of planning, housing and 
slum clearance bureaus, with di- 
rect benefit in employment of ar- 
chitects, engineers and contrac- 
tors. 

Washington and Cleveland ad- 
visers and enumerators are busily 
engaged in actual field work in 
their cities, the early results of 
which are being used to clarify 
schedules and instructions for the 
more extensive of field work.

Bureau of Roads Reports Con- 
tract Total at $134,451,000 
Under Construction 

Public works highways under 
construction by the states on Dec. 
16 were employing directly 130,566 
men under the Federal Public 
Works appropriation provided for 
in Section 204 of the National In- 
dustrial Recovery Act according to 
a tabulation of work In progress 
issued by the Bureau of Public 
Roads, U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture. 

This force of men was divided 
between contract and day labor 
projects as follows: 102,636 men 
on 2,053 projects let by contract 
and 27,930 men on 5S2 projects on 
which the labor is employed direct- 
ly by the highway authorities. 

The estimated cost of work un- 
der construction on December 16 
was $148,555,000, of which $134.- 
451,000 was by contract and $14.- 
104,000 was by day labor employ-

MAY VOTE AGAIN 

ON ALAMEDA BONDS 

Possibility that the proposed 
bond issue for the Alameda county 
courthouse, defeated by a small 
margin at the election December 
19, will again be submitted to the 
voters early next year is admitted 
by the county board of supervi- 
sors. The board has asked for an 
eight weeks' extension of time in 
which to accept the PWA grant of 
$462,000. 

Supervisors expressed the opin- 
ion that a new election might re- 
sult favorably for the bond issue 
of $1,712,000. Opposition to a group 
of other bond issues on the Decem- 
ber ballot is held an influence in 
defeating the original proposal. 

a total of 4,870 projects advertised 
for contract involving an estimat- 
ed expenditure of $242,632,000. 

On December 16. the work ad- 
vertised for contract or started by 
day labor employed by the high- 
way authorities 56. S percent of the 
$400,000,000 provided for highways

There were 365 projects, involv- 
ing a total expenditure of $9,552.-

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Architects 
A. C. Martin, A. R. Walker, Earl 
Heitschmidt, Edgar W. Maybury and 
Aleck Curlett have been selected by 
the Los Angoles county supervisors 
to prepare plans for the proposed new 
county office building to be erected at 
Sunset Blvd. and N Spring St. It will 
be an 11 -story, Class A structure, and 
will house all branches of the county 
government now in rented quarters. 
Reports received from Washington 
early this month indicated that the 
Public Works Administration had ap- 
proved an application for a loan and 
grant amounting to $2,115,200 for the 
building, but the question of whether 
the loan will be secured by a lease 
agreement or bonds has not yet been 
determined. G. B. Kaufmann and Ed- 
win Bergstrom were recently ap- 
pointed by the county supervisors as 
supervising architects for all county 
buildings financed with funds receiv- 
ed from the government under the 
PW.4 and CWA programs.

Los Angeles Leads in 1933 Building; 

San Francisco Second, Oakland Fifth 

San Francisco and Oakland were second and fifth, respectively, 
among the five leading cities of the Pacific coast in total building 
permits for the year 1933, according to a comparison of twelve-month 
figures made possible yesterday by completion of the annual review 
of building permit totals 

The tabulation has been adjusted for purposes of accurate com- 
parison by omitting swards on San Francisco bay bridge construction 
which have been reported in sev- 



eral months of the past year. By 
deducting these totals from the 
San Francisco totals the figures ob- 
tained represent accurately the ac- 
tual expenditures for building. 

The San Francisco total for the 
twelve months, thus revised, is 
$11,175,645, comparing with $15,- 
283.216 for Los Angeles, first on 
the list, and $6,453,010 for Long 
Beach, in third place. 

Five other cities among the lead- 
ers in building in 1933 were group- 
ed closely in the following order 
ranked I y total expenditures, Port- 
land, Oakland, Seattle, Beverly 
Hills and San Diego. 

Other than these the city of Sac- 
ramento is the only one with a 
total exceeding one million dollars 
for the year. San Jose and Pasa- 
dena reported nearly identical to- 
tals just below the million-dollar 
mark. Berkeley ranks next with 
Glendale following closely, the only 
other cities topping the three-quar- 
ter-million figure. 

With award of the $2,500,000 con- 
tract for the federal office building, 
San Franciso takes honors for the 
largest individual building contract 
of the year. The award was need- 
ed to bring the city's building to- 
tal above the $9,822,680 figure of 
1932. 

Following are the 1933 totals for 
the leading group of cities:

LATE MAIL MAY 

DISQUALIFY BID 

SACRAMENTO, Jan. 10.— Dis- 
qualification of several bids due 
to late arrival at the offices of 
the State Highway Commission 
in recent weeks caused State Di- 
rector of Public Works Earl L. 
Kelly today to issue a warning 
to all contractors to mail pro- 
posals in time to be certain of 
delivery before 2 p. m. on bid 
opening days. 

Firms bidding from distant 
points in the state shoald allow 
for possible rielay in mafjs be- 
cause of bad weather and inter- 
ruption of train schedules, Kel- 
ly said. ' 



FLOOD DELAYS WORK 
AT BONNEVILLE DAM 



Although relatively small dam- 
age was caused by high water in 
the Columbia river at the Bonne- 
ville dam site, the unprecedented 
flood caused about 30 days' delay 
in the construction schedule, C. I. 
Grimm, chief engineer in charge, 
reports, following an inspection of 
the project. 

A survey of the flood damage re- 
vealed that the top of the upper 
Bradford slough cofferdam will 
have to be rebuilt, as well as the 
lower Bradford slough cofferdam 
and about 200 feet of cofferdam be- 
tween Boat rock and Bradford is- 
land. The additional work neces- 
sitated by the loss of the coffer- 
dams and the consequent loss of 
working time during the high wa- 
ter will result in about 30 days' 
delay in that part of the work 
scheduled for completion prior to 
the June freshet, unless offset by 
rapid progress In the next four 
months.

Additional millions of Federal 
funds have been released to proj- 
ects in California and other West- 
ern states by the Public Works 
Administration, according to dis- 
patches from Washington yester- 
day. 

Largest of the new apportion- 
ments in California Is that of $9,- 
380,000, a loan and grant to Los 
Angeles for rehabilitation of 
school buildings. 

The city of San Francisco re- 
ceived approval of loan and grant 
of $3,500,000 tor raising O'Shaugh- 
nessy Dam and $260,000 for im- 
provements at the airport. 

Alameda and Contra Costa 
counties, through Joint Highway 
District No, 13 were granted $1,- 
000,000 toward the cost of the 
Broadway low-level tunnel, total 
Broadway low-level tunnel, the 
total cost of which with appurten- 
ant structures will be $3,752,000. 
The tunnel is to be a double bore 
of 2910 feet. It involves also con- 
struction of two overhead cross- 
ings and viaduct and a grade sep- 
aration at the intersection with 
the Sacramento Northern Railway. 

The balance of the financing is 
to be obtained from sale of dis- 
trict bonds, which already have 
been voted. Wallace B. Boggs, 
1448 Webster St., Oakland, is chief 
engineer. A meeting of the tunnel 
district directors will be called as 
soon as ofllcial notification of the 
grant is received and bids for the 
tunnel and for sale of the bonds 
probably will be advertised within 
a week. 

Other grants and loans included 
$22,000 to the city of Monterey for 
outfall sewer construction; $49,000 
to the city of Morgan Hill for 
water system improvements; $2000 
to the city of Modesto for sanitary 
sewer extension; $600,000 to the 
La Mesa - Spring Valley - Lemon 
Grove Irrigation district to finance 
a concrete pipe line. 

Bakersfield received $274,000 for 
a new library building and San 
Jose received a grant of $112,000 
contingent upon approval of a 
bond issue to complete financing 
of a $460,000 municipal auditorium

A.G.C Annual Convention to Celebrate 

Improvement in Construction Industry 



Foreseeing the prospect of a 
great concentration of actual con- 
struction work witliin the next few 
months, preparations for inducing 
and handling during 1934 the first 
rising volume of construction since 
1929 are to be enthusiastically un- 
dertalien at the 15th annual con- 
vention of the Associated General 
Contractors of America, to be held 
in Washington January 29, 30 and 
31, Edward J. Harding, managing 
director of the contractors' asso- 
ciation, announces. 

With allotments under the pon- 
derous Federal Public Works pro- 
gram virtually completed and 
reaching the contract award stage 
in increasingly heavy volume, con- 
struction leaders look to the in- 
dustry to afford by spring its 
greatest employment opportunities 
in years. Every effort to sustain 
this activity throughout 1934, thru 
a revival of private construction 
and probably additional Federal 
grants tor State and municipal pub- 
lic works, will be made by the con- 
tractors of the country at their 
convention, Harding states. 

"For the first time in its his- 
tory," he points out, "the construc- 
tion industry, under its code of 
fair competition, is organizing 100 
per cent for honest and efficient 
service to the public, and new con- 
struction values will be more 
thoroughly stabilized and safe- 
guarded than ever before. We, 
therefore, believe that an early re- 
turn of private capital investment 
to this field is inevitable, and that 
the large volume of such work 
which has been held up by the un- 
certainty of the last three years 
will soon make itself felt upon the 
business and purchasing power of 
the country." 

Harding declared that the Asso- 
ciated General Contractors and the 
construction industry as a whole 
have sought in perfecting their 
master code and divisional supple- 
ments to provide fair and reason- 
able wages for labor and at the 
same time keep construction costs 
in proper relationship to consum- 
er earning power. The successful 
carrying out of this objective will 
be assured by the strict self-regu- 
lation of the industry under N. R. 
A., which will definitely eliminate 
the "chisler." he states. Organ- 
ization of the general contractors' 
code authorities is expected to be 
perfected by the time of the Asso- 
ciated General Contractors' con- 



vention and it is anticipated that 
the meeting will attract the larg- 
est gathering of contractors on 
record. 



Contractor Makes 
Record on Road 
Job in Colorado 



What the U. S. Bureau of Public 
Roads believes to be a speed rec- 
ord in road building was estab- 
lished recently in the building of a 
Public Works highway in the San 
Juan National Forest in Colorado. 
The road, known as the Pagosa- 
Chania forest highway, is part of 
the main - traveled route between 
Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the 
Mesa Verde National Park. Only 
49 days of the 200 allowed to com- 
plete this 4'/2 mile section of road 
were required to put the highway 
in service, according to the report 
of the bureau, which was in charge 
of the construction. 

Work accomplished on the sec- 
tion of road built so rapidly includ- 
ed grading to a 24-ft. width, build- 
ing two major drainage structures 
of concrete, and placing two 4-in. 
layers of crushed surfacing mate- 
rial. 

Although the contract permitted 
the use of machinery, the Bureau 
of Public Roads reports that the 
contractor, E. H. Honnen, prefer- 
red to use instead a large number 
of unemployed and needy men, 

"This project," the report states, 
"proved a veritable godsend to the 
community, which depends on graz- 
ing, farming and lumbering for its 
living. Of the 276 men registered 
for employment In the county, 211 
were given employment on the 
road work. This represented 6,400 
men-days and 2,300 stock-days of 
work, representing payrolls of $40,- 
000. Expenditures for supplies and 
materials have improved local fi- 
nancial conditions, and business 
men of the community are out- 
spoken as to the local benefits of 
the road construction," 



NEW ELECTION 
ASKED TO GET 
U. S. MONEY 

Stanislaus County Residents 

Working for $498,000 

County Buildings 

Plans for a second election on 
the proposed bond issues of $247,- 
000 and $250,000 to finance con- 
struction of an addition to county 
hospital and a new courthouse are 
being made in Stanislaus county 
following notification that the Fed- 
eral government has set aside 
money to purchase the bonds and 
to make a grant for part of the 
cost. 

E A. Taggard, Modesto electric- 
al contractor, is leading the cam- 
paign for a new election and is 
chairman of a committee circulat- 
ing petitions in favor of the bonds. 
At Taggard's request, the board 
of supervisors drafted a letter to 
the San Francisco office of the 
P u b lie Works Administration to 
learn it a 90-day extension of time 
could be given to determine wheth- 
er Stanislaus County may accept 
a $498,000 loan and grant offered 
by the federal government last 
week. 

The allocation was made by the 
PWA on an application made by 
the supervisors before a special 
election last December 19. At that 
time, two proposed bond issues as 
security for the federal loan failed 
to receive the required two-thirds 
majority necessary for issuance. 

Because only a simple majority 
was given the bonds, the supervi- 
sors have been advised they can- 
not accept the government's offer 
unless voters at another election 
give a two-thirds majority. 

It is the understanding of the 
board the allocations must be ac- 
cepted within thirty days.

PRICE INDEX 

AT NEW HIGH 



General Contractors To Demand 

Uniform Public Works Wage Rate 

Variations in construction wage and labor policies promulgated 
by various governmental agencies are to come under the attack of 
the Associated General Contractors of America at its fifteenth annual 
convention, to be held in Washington, D. C, January 29, 30 and 31, 
when an effort will be made to secure uniform wage and labor stipula- 
tions on all public construction work. 

For the first time in many years the labor turnover on construc- 
tion work has mounted to alarming proportions and contractors are 
now facing the wildest wage scale chaos imaginable, according to A. 
C. Tozzer, of New York, president of the contractors' association, 
who declares that four or more totally different and unrelated sets of 
wage rates have been promulgated by different public agencies ror 
identical types of work in identical communities. 
"The result of these varying rate 

structures promulgated by govern- —^^^-^^^——^^^^~^^^~^^~' 

nient decree is a complete tangle 

in which workmen on tlie same 

kind of work in the same locality 

are retiuired to be paid 30 cents 

an liour on work by one authority, 

40 cents an hour on work under 

another autliority, 45 cents an hour 

on work by a third authority and 

65 cents an hour on work under a 

fourth authority," Tozzer states. 

"Contractors are having a difficult 

time trying to estimate labor costs 

on new work," he says, "trying to 

keep men on work tor which the 

lower wages have been decreed 

and contracts signed under such 

rates; and trying to explain to en- 
raged workmen why all the differ- 
ences exist." 

One set of rates exists as a hang- 
over from the old prevailing wage 
law and interpretations of it by 
the Secretary of Labor, he states, 
while an entirely different set of 
rates and hours has been promul- 
gated in each State governing high- 
way work under the 30-hour week 
provisions of the PWA allotments 
through the Bureau of Public 
Roads. Rates on such work range 
from 30 cents per hour minimum 
in some states to 50 cents in oth- 
ers, while semi-skilled rates vary 
all the way from 40 cents to $1.25 
an hour. 

Tozzer points out that a third 
set of wage rates for unskilled and 
skilled labor, coupled with 30-hour 
provisions, was promulgated to gov- 
ern PWA allotments for federal 
and local public works according 
to a zone system, but no provision 
was made for semi-skilled labor. 
In consequence, he states, the va- 
rious state engineers of the Pub- 
lic Works Administration are an- 
nouncing detailed rates for all 



The index price of building 
materials was at 85.5 a new 
high on January 6, gaining a 
tenth of a point from the mark 
a week previous, according to 
the report of the Bureau of La- 
bor Statistics. Metals and metal 
products were steady at 83.3. 
The index is based on a com- 
parison with 1926 prices as a 
base of 100. 

The only change reported by 
San Francisco Dealers m the 
past week was a reduction in 
prices of linseed oil and an in- 
crease in prices of turpentine. 
Linseed oil dropped four cents 
a gallon. Turpentine was ad- 
vanced five cents. 



classes of labor, listing semi-skill- 
ed occupations at from 65 cents 
or less per hour up to $1 an hour 
hy arbitrary classification of all 
occupations. 

A fourth classification has been 
made by CWA authorities coupled 
with the 30-hour week provisions 
but varied from locality to locality 
in accordance with instructions to 
pay the union rates in all locali- 
ties where these are higher than 
the basic PWA scales tor the zone 
which applies. Tozzer continued. 
Further complication is introduced, 
he states, by the fact that in dif- 
ferent localities the CWA is set- 
ting different rates for various 
semi-skilled occupations. 



$10,000,000 FOR 
STATE BUILDING 
TO BE REQUESTED 

Vandegi-ift Recommends Re- 
sumption of 10-year Pro- 
gram in 1935 

An $S,000,000 to $10,000,000 pub- 
lic building program for 1935-937 
was held necessary yesterday by 
Finance Director Rolland Vande- 
grift to accommodate prison, ment- 
al hospital, school and public office 
expansion. 

Vandegrift has begun prepara- 
tion of the detailed construction 
plan to be presented to the legis- 
lature next January. 

California's 10-year state build- 
ing program was abandoned by the 
1933 legislature because of depres- 
sion-curtailed funds. It should be 
resumed on a pay-as-you-go basis 
next year, Vandegrift maintained. 

"It will be good economy to re- 
sume the building program," the 
director said, "before construction 
requirements exceed possible pay- 
ment from current revenues and 
bond issues are needed. 

"A state public building program 
starting in 1935 would help take 
up any job slack which might re- 
sult from tapering down the fed- 
eral reemployment program." 

For first consideration in his 
proposed construction plan, Vande- 
grift listed, with estimates of cost: 

Prison for first offenders in 
Southern California, $1,500,000. Two 
new cell blocks at Folsom prison, 
$500,000. 

New 3,000 - patient mental hos- 
pital in central or far Southern Cal- 
ifornia. Camarillo hospital in Ven- 
tura county, now being constructed 
on an 1100-patient basis represents 
a $1,700,000 state investment. 

State fair construction: Mining 
building, to house permanent ex- 
hibit, $300,000; administration build- 
ing, $200,000; education building, 
$170,000; future farmers building, 
$225,000; 4H club building, $17,- 
000. Application for $430,000 to 
construct a new horse show arena 
is before the federal PWA. 

San Francisco Teachers' College 
$1,585,000, Santa Barbara Teach- 
ers' College, $1,162,000. 

A new governor's mansion, a cen- 
tral garage for state automobiles 
in Sacramento and additional ofllce 
space in Sacramento, San Francis- 
co and Los Angeles should be con- 
sidered, Vandegrift said.

INCREASED WAGE 
SCALES FOR S. F. 
CRAFTS ADVISED 



Supei-visors To Receive Civil 
Service Report Recom- 
mending Raises 

Higher wage scales lor eight 
crafts are recommended for the 
San Francisco prevailing wage or- 
dinance in a report prepared for 
the Bead of Supervisors 1 y the 
Civil Service Commission. 

The commission states that the 
increases are required by codes 
of lair competition for the respec- 
tive industries affected. 

The largest raise was suggested 
for electrical workers whose pay 
under the new schedules would be 
increased 2.5c an hour or from |S 
to $10 a day. Bricklayers were rec- 
ommended for a 12',2C an hour laise 
but placed on a six-hour day. 

The hours of stone setters would 
also be reduced from eight to six, 
but their wages raised from $1.25 
to $1.3712 an hour. The pay of 
housesmiths was upped $1 a day 
in the report, which suggested a 
$9 a day scale for this craft. 

Wages for other crafts which 
the commission said should be 
raised to the standard set by Cali- 
fornia Recovery codes were: Plas- 
terers, 2.TC an hour; metal and 
wood lathers. 25c an hour each, 
and hodcarriers, 25c an hour. 

An increase of 4y2C an ho'.ir and 
a six-hour day for laborer.^ was 
also suggested. 

The commission advised the su- 
pervisors that for the first time 
in recent civic history there had 
been no disagreement between or- 
ganized labor and open-shop advo- 
cates over what should be the pre- 
vailing pay rates. The new r-cale^. 
the commission indicated, were ac- 
ceptable to both. 

Not a single cut In the scales 
of the 100 types o£ crafts and 
trades reviewed by the commis- 
sion was suggested. 

The supervisors will formally 
receive the report Monday and are 
expected to approve It within a 
week.

SEVEN MILLION 
BARRELS CEMENT 
1933 PRODUCTION 

Structural Materials Valued at 

10 Pet. of State's Mineral 

Output 

Production of structural mate- 1 
rials in the state of California 
showed an increase during 1933, 
according to the report of Walter I 
W. Bradley, state mineralogist. 

The increase is accounted lor 
by the large public works con- 
struction pr o g r a m , the report 
states. Production of cement 
amounted to 7,042,000 barrels val- 
ued at $10,211,000. 

Value of other materials is es- 
timated at $8,500,000 for crushed 
rock, sa-nd and gravel; $1,800,000 
for brick and hollow building tile; 
$967,000 for other structural mate- 
rials, including bituminous rock, 
granite, magnesite, marble, etc. 

The total value of structural ma- 
terials produced is placed at $21,- 
478,000, or slightly more than 10 
per cent of the estimated value of 
all mineral production which is es- 
timated at $205,525,000 for the year. 

The year's increase is approxi- 
mately $6,239,000 over the value of 
1932 production.

Injunction Stops San Mateo Award 
To Test Validity of California Code 

A suit to test the validity of California Recovery Act codes of 

fair competition filed in San Francisco was followed yesterday by a 

temporary injunction restraining Director of Public Works Earl Lee 

Kelly from certifying an award on the Junipero Boulevard extension 

in San Mateo county for which bids were received January 10. 

Award of a contract to the low bidders, D. IVlcDonald, Sacramento, 
Jones & King, Hayward, and F. O Bohnett, Campbell, was to have 
been made yesterday. Their bidi 
was $178,546 for grading and pav- 
ing about two miles between Edge- 1 
mar Road and State Highway Rt. 3| 

The contract involves about 301),- 
000 yards of excavation and 2,000,- 
000 yards overhaul. 

Plaintiffs in the suit are the 
Building Material Drivers Union 
No. 215 and the Steam Shovel and 
Dredgermen's Union No. 45 of San 
Francisco. ^ 

The plaintiffs allege that biddiiig 
on the contract is invalid because 
of failure of the state to incor- 
porate a minimum wage scale in 
its bid call equal to that specified 
by the CRA code of the Excava- 
tors and Dump Track Contractors' 
Association. _^ 

E. G. Brown. San Francisco at- 
torney for the plaintiffs, said the 
amount of the wage difference was 
less an issue than the effort to es- 
tablish the code validity. ^_ 

"Contractors are all affected by 
the state and national codes in 
many of their operations," Mr. 
Brown said. "In bidding they are 
risking prosecution for failure to 
comply with codes, although they 
may have complied fully with the 
provisions of their contract. _ 

"It is highly important that a 
court decision be obtained to clar- 
ify the state code situation. We 
want to know whether these codes 
are operative and how far they 
may be used to regulate bidding." 

Mr. Brown said the present suit 
might be lost because of technicali- 
ties without deciding the issue of 
code validity. In this case he de- 
clared the next move would be to 
ask for prosecution by the San Ma- 
teo county district attorney in a 
test case against the contractors 
it they were awarded the contract 
and commenced work. 

Hearing of the suit is set for 
January 25 before Judge T. I. Fitz- 
patrick in San Francisco. 

Director Kelly said the wage 
specifications tor the contract were 
fixed in accordance with what the 
department considers the prevail- 
ing wage in the locality where the 
work is to be done. They are ad- 
mittedly below those established 
in the Code of the Excavators and 
Dump Truck Contractors by agree- 
ment between employers and labor 
unions. 

"There are two questions which 
we hope the court will settle," Mr. 
Kelly said. 

"The first is whether the code 
wages or the prevailing wage scale 
provided for in the state law is 
paramount in preparing the speci- 
fications for highway projects. 

"Secondly, we hope it will settle 
the perplexing question of whether 
we must call for bids on the basis

the principal speaker before the 
annual banquet of the American 
Road builders' Association conven- 
tion which \vi\\ be held in the 
Stevens Hotel, Chicago, during the 
week of January 22. 

Mr. Chapman, who is the chief 
aide of Secretary Ickes in the mul- 
titude of problems connected with 
carrying out the Public Works 
program, is exceptionally well fit- 
ted to speak before the national 
assemblage of the highway indus- 
try. As the executive secretary to 
the Special Board for Public 
Works he is wholly conversant 
with the entire PWA program and 
knows of the large way in which 
highway construction and improve- 
ment projects have become the 
backbone of the federal govern- 
ment's program for unemployment 
relief and the coupling of indus- 
trial recovery with public invest- 
ment for the future years. Prior 
to assuming his present position 
Mr. Chapman, who is a la-wyer by 
profession and a resident of Den- 
ver, Colorado, has devoted his ma- 
jor interests to problems of human 
welfare and government and the 
practical application of social eco- 
nomics to governmental affairs. 

Mr. Chapman has chosen the sub- 
ject of "Public Works" for his ad- 
dress before the Convention of the 

A. R. B. A. It is expected that he 
will review the PWA program to 
date, outline proposals being con- 
sidered for the future and tell how 
street and highway officials can 
fully coordinate their activities for 
the complete success of the entire 
public works program. 

Another speaker of national 
prominence upon the convention 
program will be Thomas H. Mac- 
Donald, Chief of the Federal Bu- 
reau of Public Roads. Mr. Mac- 
Donald will address the opening 
general session on the national 
government's activities and plans 
for expanding the highway pro- 
gram under the title of "Summary 
of Federal Highway Progress." 

Other speakers of national im- 
portance will include: W, G. Arm- 
strong, President, National Rural 
Letter Carriers Assn., Niles, Mich., 
whose address will be "Roads Ov- 
er Which the Mail is Carried"; E.

way Commission, Raleigh, North 
Carolina, who will speak on the 
subject of "The Nation's Highway 
Needs of Tomorrow"; R. W. Crum, 
Director, Highway Research Board 
National Reserach Council, Wash- 
ington, D. C, the title of his ad- 
dress being "The Highway Bal-

man, Montana State Highway Com- 
mission, Helena, Mont., President,

LOCAL PAYROLLS 
IN CONSTRUCTION 
AHEAD OF 1932 

Bay Area Employment Shows 
Heavy Increase Over Cor- 
responding Month 

Payrolls and employment in the 
state construction industry in De- 
cember were both ahead of those 
for the corresponding month of 
1932, according to the monthly re- 
port of Labor Commissioner Frank 
C. MacDonald. 

Weekly payrolls in the San Fran- 
cisco-Alameda area were 23.3 per 
cent higher during the last month 
than in the corresponding month a 
year ago, according to reports from 
54 contractors. The number of em- 
ployes was higher by 14.8 percent. 
Average per capita weekly earn- 
ings were up 7.4 percent. 

A decline in employment in De- 
cember compared with November, 
however, was reported by the com- 
missioner. In the San Francisco- 
Alameda district the number of 
employes was 20.3 percent less 
than in November and the amount 
of weekly payrolls was 28.3 per 
cent less. 

The state as a whole showed one- 
tenth of one percent increase in 
number of employes between De- 
cember 1932 and December 1933 
and a gain in weekly payrolls of 
1.7 percent. 

Between November and Decem- 
ber the number of employes en- 
gaged in construction in the state 
receded 12.5 percent and total 
weekly payrolls declined 14.8 per 
cent. 

Manufacturing industries employ- 
ment declined 4.5 percent and pay- 
rolls 2.7 percent in December com- 
pared with November, but average 
weekly earnings for the same pe- 
riod increased by 1.9 percent. The 
furniture and fixture industry was 
among those industries reporting 
increased employment. The gain 
was 10.2 percent in employment 
and 13.2 percent in payrolls. 

In December 1933 as compared 
with December 1932 employment 
in manufacturing industries in- 
creased 23.6 percent and payrolls 
22 percent. 

Those reporting largest increas- 
es in this period included the stone, 
clay and glass products group and 
the metals, machinery and convey- 
ances group.

SCHOOLS 



PLANNED. 

LOS ANGELES, Cal.— Los Angeles 
school rehabilitation program, a por- 
tion of which is expected to get un- 
der way early this year in view of 
recent allotments of Federal funds 
totaling approximately $10,500,000, will 
consist largely of restoring existing 
school buildings and the erection of 
new buildings where former structures 
cannot be repaired and have been 
condemned. The school board expec'-s 
to handle construction work by con- 
tract, with a few possible changes in 
the former method of this procedure. 
Bonding requirements may be more 
rigid and it is contemplated to in- 
ilude in one contract all the work 
on each Job, in accordance with Fed- 
eral requirements, instead of follow- 
ing the former practice of segregat- 
ing the contracts. The program in- 
cludes 171 elementary schools to be 
rehabilitated. An estimate of the ma- 
terials required for this work fol- 
lows: Cement, $830,280 sacks; sand 
and gravel, 184,020 tons; reinforcing 
steel. 4590 tons; structural steel, 20,- 
230 tons; lumber, 7,CG0,000 bd. ft.; 
plaster materials, $560,040; plumbing, 
heating and electrical materials, $52,- 
700, and roofing materials, $50,490. In 
the latter three classifications the 
sums do not include lal>or. In addi- 
tion to these items it is estimated a 
small amount of masonry work and 
the usual hardware and building 
specialties will be required. Founda- 
tion materials are not included.

PLANS ON FILE 

BOULDER DAM — Drawings and 
specifications for Emergency Gates 
and Needle Valves for Canyon Wall 
Outlet Works, Boulder Dam, Bould- 
er Canyon Project, Specification No. 
562, bids for which will be opened by 
the' Bureau of Reclamation, Denver, 
Colorado, February 5, 2 P. M., (as 
previously reported), are on file at the 
oflice of the DAILY PACIFIC BUILD- 
ER. Following is a description of 
the 96-in. paradox emergency gates; 

Tlie paradox emergency gates (12 
to be furnished) will be used for pro- 
tection, inspection, and maintenance 
of the S4-in. needle valves, and under 
normal operating conditions, will be 
closed or opened with no flow through 
the conduits and with balanced pres- 
sures on the two sides of the gates. 
In the event of an emergency, the 
gates may be operated under a maxi- 
mum pressure of 174 lbs. per square 
inch with a flow of 4000 cubic feet per 
second through each gate, and are de- 
signed for prompt and safe closure 
under these conditions. The gates 
will be installed in the canyon wall 
valve houses, at the lower ends of the' 
outlet conduits and will be embedded 
in concrete. A short length of 96-in. 
diameter conduit lining will connect 
each gate with an internal differen- 
tial needle valve. Each gate will con- 
sist of a semisteel housing enclosing 
a follower ring type of gate leaf, the 
gate being installed in a vertical posi- 
tion with the hoisting mechanism in- 
stalled on the upper bonnet cover. 
The leaf will be raised to open and 
lowered to close, by means of two 
gate stems passing through stuffing 
boxes in the bonnet cover. The upper 
ends of the stems will be threaded and 
will engage hoist nuts fixed in tubular 
driving members which will be at- 
tached, at the lower end, to bevel 
gears. The bevel gears will rest on 
ball bearings supported on the top of 
the bonnet cover hoist case and will 
be driven through bevel pinions fixed 
to each end of the motor shaft. 
Wedge sliaped roller racks will be so 
arranged as to allow the gate leaf 
to bear on bronze seats on the housing 
when in the closed position and to lift 
the leaf oft its seat and support it on 
the roller trains while being raised to 
open. The hoist stems will be fiixed 
at their lower ends to a crosshead 
which will be connected at either end 
to the roller carriages at each side of 
the leaf. The crosshead will also be con- 
nected to the leaf by toggles which 
will be maintained in their elongated 
position until the leaf is seated on the' 
top at the bottom of the travel at 
which time the toggles will be al- 
lowed to expand and permit the con- 
tinued downward motion of the cross- 
head. This continued downward 
movement of the crosshead will force 
the inclined roller train or wedge in 
each carriage downward and allow 
the gate to move slightly downstream 
and bear on the seats on the housing. 
In opening, the operation will be re- 
vel-sed, the crosshead moving upward 
will cause the Inclined roller train 
to contact the wedge track on the 
leaf, forcing the leaf away from its 
seats, and the continued movement of 



the crosshead will raise the leaf to 
the open position. An air inlet mani- 
fold will admit air into the conduit 
below the gate leaf when opening or 
closing, preventing formation of a 
partial vacuum. A fianged pipe con- 
nection in the lower bonnet cover will 
permit flushing the lower gate bonnet. 
A by-pass connection will provide for 
balancing the pressure on tlie two 
sides of the gate previous to opening. 

Following is a description of Inter- 
nal differential needle valves (12 to b* 
furnished) : 

The S4-in. internal differential needle 
valves will be used for the purpose 
of regulating the discharge of water 
from the reservoir. They will normal- 
ly be operated under heads varying 
from 160 to 320 feet under free dis- 
charge conditions, but are designed 
for similar conditions under a maxi- 
mum head of 430 feet. Operation will 
be by means of the regulation of pres- 
sure within the interior body, where- 
by differential pressure will be created 
on opposite sides of stationary and 
movable parts for moving the plunger 
to open or close the valve as desired, 
and by so balancing these internal 
pressures that the plunger will remain 
stationary at any desired position, for 
regulation of the discharge through 
the valve. Control will be by means 
of a hand wheel mounted on an in- 
dependent operating stand above the 
valve, on the operating floor 6f the 
valve house. Each valve will be pro- 
tected by a DG-in, paradox emergency 
gate, to permit inspection and main-

IMPERIAL COUNTY. Cal.— Reports 
from Washington indicate that re- 
vised specifications for the AU-Amer-

tions of work already completed and 
accepted by the government. The pre- 
vious specifications held the contrac- 
tor responsible until his entire sched- 
ule was completed and accepted. Ac- 
cording to reports, this caused con- 
tractors to submit figures high enough 
to cover possible sand storm fillings 
during construction. 

Another change, also reported to be 
under discussion, is a revision where- 
by the rock excavation may be seg- 
regated entirely from any of the 
earth excavation and made a sched- 
ule by itself. 5

PRICES RISE 
1% IN MONTH, 
SURVEY SHOWS 

Many Material Items Share in 

December Upward 

Trend 

Building materials prices advanc- 
ed nearly one percent during De- 
cember, according to the monthly 
price index tor principal commodi- 
ties prepared by the U. S. Bureau 
of Labor Statistics. 

Brick and tile, lumber, paint and 
paint materials and miscellaneous 
building materials shared in the 
upward movement. Cement and 
structural steel remained at the 
same level as for November. 

Metals and metal products show- 
ed an increase of one percent also. 
The rise was due to increasing 
prices of certain agricultural im- 
plements and iron and steel items. 
The index for motor vehicles was 
unchanged, while the average tor 
nonferrous metals and plumbing 
and heating fixtures declined.

Electrical Contractors To File 

Duplicate Subs With Association 

The Electrical Contractors Association of Northern California yes- 
terday gave notice to the construction industry that it would protect 
its members from "bid peddling." The association announced to all 
general contractors that it would register the bids of member firms 
by requiring a sealed duplicate copy to be deposited in its office to 
be opened after general contract bids have been opened. 

A list of contractor members of the association has been compiled 
and classified according to type of work on whic h they will bid. Gen- 
eral contractors are asked to con- 
fine their requests for estimates to 
firms qualified for the particular 
work desired. 

Charles A. Langlais, president of 
the association, in announcing the 
new policy said: 

"For obvious reasons, members 
ot this association will not submit 
figures earlier than four hours be- 
fore the taking of estimates. If a 
general contractor insists on get- 
ting estimates before that time, as 
far as this association is concern- 
ed, he will close the estimates in 
his office at the time he demands 
the estimates. 

"The members of this associa- 
tion will not submit estimates to 
the owner or the architect and the 
general contractor. They will sub- 
mit estimates to either one, but not 
both. After estimates have been 
taken on any given project, the 
members of this association will 
not accept this work on a time and 
material basis. After estimates 
have been taken and a closing time 
has been established by the bid- 
taker, no further estimates will be 
furnished by the members of this 
association. We are going to do 
our part to prevent bid peddling 
by every means at hand." 

The letter from the association 
to contractors follows: 

Gentlemen: 

We are enclosing herewith a 
complete membership list as of 
January 1, 1934, of the San Fran- 
cisco Section of the National Elec- 
trical Contractors Assn., Northern 
California Chapter. 

You will note on the reverse side 
this membership is classified ac- 
cording to type and kind of ser- 
vice each is equipped, skilled, or 
financed to handle to the best ad- 
vantage. 

This classification should enable 
you to save yourself and our mem- 
bers the expense of estimating and 
handling calls on work in which 
they are not particularly qualified 
or interested. Many to whom this 
list is being sent will prefer to deal 
with firms with whom they have 
been accustomed to do business. 



$80,000 Palo Alto 
School Alterations 
Advised by Expert 

Rebuilding of three Palo Alto 
public schools to conform to the 
state earthquake safety code will 
cost approximately $80,000. accord- 
ing to preliminary estimates filed 
with the board of education by 
Walter L. Huber, San Francisco 
consulting engineer. 

Major reconstruction will be nec- 
essary on the auditorium of the 
Palo Alto High School and the ad- 
ministrative unit, with minor al- 
terations in the library and gym- 
nasium and in the Addison and 
Mayfield schools. 

If, on the other hand, you want 
a greater number of estimates from 
our members on any given project, 
we suggest that you notify our of- 
fice, phone GArfield 0444 or Gar- 
field 0445, and request that all 
firms bidding on that project sub- 
mit estimates to you. Naturally, 
however, it is necessary that you 
put your plans out to a member 
of this association in order that 
estimates may be prepared. To fa- 
cilitate this service, we require 
that our members register all proj- 
ects upon which they propose to 
submit bids. 

In accordance with the provi- 
sions of the code of Fair Practice 
of the Electrical Contracting In- 
dustry, this association requires 
that a sealed copy of each mem- 
ber's bid be filed in our office; to 
be opened immediately after the 
bids are opened by those having 
the awarding of the contract. 

This provides our committee with 
an accurate check upon the bid- 
ding of members and tends to sta- 
bilize the industry and prevents the 
practice condemned by the entire 
construction industry known as 
"Bid Peddling." 

We feel that this list and this 
procedure will be of mutual benefit 
to you as a general contractor and 
to us of the electrical contracting 
industry, as well as to our mutual 
customers. 



MARIN TOWER 
OF GATE SPAN 
AT 370-FT. MARK 

Contractors Erect 593 Tons of 

Steel in Week; Take New 

Pier Soundings 



More than 593 tons of steel was 
erected on the Marin tower of the 
Golden Gate Bridge during the 
past week, according to the report 
of Chief Engineer Joseph B. 
Strauss yesterday. This brings 
the tower to a height of 370 feet, 
or exactly 3 feet under 50 per 
cent ot its entire height of 746 
feet. Total steel erected on the 
tower to date has reached the fi- 
gure of 9,865 tons. 

With 20 gangs of riveters occu- 
pied on the job a total of 55,000 
rivets have been driven, tested, in- 
spected and passed as satisfactory 
to date. 

All of the steel for the Marin 
tower, with the exception of the 
top section, has been fabricated 
and 20.000 tons of the 22,000 tons 
that will go into the completed 
tower have been shipped. 

On the anchorages at both sides 
of the Golden Gate concrete pour- 
ing operations have been com- 
pleted up to the time when the 
cables will be strung and back- 
filling operations are under way.

Excavators' Code Injunction Stops 

Northern California Highway Work 

SACRAMENTO, Jan. 22 — State Director of Public Works Earl 
Lee Kelly today suspended the state highway construction program 
in all counties of Northern California pending a final decision on 
the temporary injunction obtained last week by two San Francisco 
labor unions to test the wage scale established in the California 
State code of the Excavators and Dump Tcuck Owners of Northern 
California. Mr. Kelly's order applies to all counties north of the 
Tehachapi, including Kern and San Luis Obispo, and affets an esti- 
mated total of $2,352,732 in contracts. 
Bids which were to have been 



opened Wednesday on eight con- 
tracts in northern California, in- 
cluding three in the city of San 
Francisco, will not be received by 
the State Highway Commission. 
Bids will be opened as scheduled 
on jobs in Southern California 
counties. 

Awards on tour contracts for 
which bids have been received 
amounting to $378,233 in the coun- 
ties o£ Santa Clara, Monterey, So- 
lano and San Mateo will not be ap- 
proved by Kelly until the suit is 
decided. 

Thirteen contracts estimated at 
$1,438,200, which are now being 
advertised for opening, including 
the eight on which proposals were 
to have been received January 24 
will be withdrawn temporarily... It 
will be necessary to readvertise all 
contracts scheduled for opening 
Wednesday. What will be the dis- 
position of five other contracts a d- 
vertised tor opening January 31 and 
February 7 depends on the out- 
come of the hearing on the in- 
junction set for Thursday morn- 
ing. 

Five contracts which would have 
been released for advertising to- 
morrow, including two jobs in San 
Francisco, two in Monterey county 
and one in Kings county, will be 
withheld temporarily. The esit- 
mated total of these is $536,300. 

It was said here that an effort 
would be made to obtain a dissi- 
lution of the injunction at the 
hearing insofar as it applies to 
contracts other than the one in 
San Mateo county which has been 
selected for a test case. 

The injunction was obtained 
against an award on the Junipero 
Serra Boulevard extension for 
which bids were received January 
10. The low bid was submitted by 
D. McDonald, Sacramento, Jones 
& King, Hayward and F. O. Boh- 
nett, Campbell at $178,546. An 
alternative writ was issued in the 
San Francisco superior court and 
was set for hearing before Judge 
T. I. Fitzpatrick on January 25. 

The plaintiffs are the Building 
Material Drivers' Union No. 215 
and the Steam Shovel and Dredge- 
men's Union No. 45 of San Fran- 
cisco. They allege that the scale 
of vv-ages fixed by the Highway 
Commission is lower than the min- 
imum scale agreed upon between 
the union and the excavation con- 
tractors and approved in the Cali- 
fornia Recovery Act code of fair 
competition now effective in 
Northern California. The injunc- 
tion applies only to Northern Cali- 
fornia counties because the area 
covered by the code noes not ex- 



CODE WAGE SUIT 

HEARING MONDAY 

Suit of San Francisco labor un- 
ions to test a state code wage 
scale, which has blocked proceed- 
ings on $2,352,000 worth of state 
highway construction, will be be- 
fore a Sacramento county super- 
ior court next Monday afternoon. 

Attorney A. L. Augustine of the 
attorney - general's staff in San 
Francisco who will represent state 
officials was advised late yester- 
day that a hearing had been set 
for 2 o'clock Monday in Sacramen- 
to. The action was transfered to 
the capital at the request of state 
officials. It had previously been 
set for hearing in San Francisco. 

Mr. Kelly opinted out in his 
statement today that a court de- 
cision was necessary to decide 
how the highway commission and 
other divisions of the State De- 
partment of Public Works should 
proceed in the fixing of wage scales 
tor labor protected by state or na- 
tional codes. 

"The highway department is now 
required by state law to determine 
the prevailing wage for each craft 
in each locality and to specify those 
wages," Kelly said. "Whether or 
not the state prevailing wage act 
is superseded now by state of na- 
tional codes mustt be determined 
by the courts. 

"We welcome a test case, but 
we hope that it can be completed 
without disruption of the state 
highway construction program at 
a time when every effort is being 
made by Governor Rolph to put 
more men to work, in accord with 
the drive for recovery. 
"I have been advised that I might 
be held personally liable for any 
deviation from the established 
scale on contracts executed under 
my department's jurisdiction. Un- 
der these conditions we cannot 
proceed to award contracts until 
the wage scale question has been 
settled." 

Two major bridge construction 
contracts are threatened by a year's 
delay unless an early decision on 
the wage scale is obtained, it was 
said at the highway commission 
offices. Plans are being completed 
for the new M street bridge at 
Sacramento to cost about $100,- 
000 and for another large bridge 
at Redding. The work must be 
started during the low water period 
in the summer or it must be post- 
poned until the summer of 1935, 
it was pointed out. 

Mr. Kelly will be represented by 
Attorney-General U. S. Webb at 
the hearing Thursday.

Support for Bill to Appropriate 

Half Billion Building Loan Urged 



Construction industry organiza- 
tions are gathering support for the 
proposed amendment to the Home 
Owners' Loan Act now pending in 
Congress whicli will provide funds 
at low interest for home building. 
Local groups are planning a steady 
campaign directed to representa- 
tives from this district urging pass- 
age of the measure, according to 
William E. Hague, manager of the 
Alameda county chapter, Aarociat- 
ed General Contractors. 

"Thi.s pending bill is a simple 
and direct amendment to the ex- 
isting Home Owners' Loan Act. 
If passed it will provide fi percent 
interest funds amortised over 18 
years, up to 75 percent of the cost 
of the land and building," Mr. 
Hague said. 

"This would seem to be just 
what the building business needs 
to stimulate the great activity that 
is possible when sizable loans at 
reasonable rates of interest are ob- 
tainable. 

"Mr. P. J. Connolly, manager of 
Southern California chapter of the 
Associated General Contractors, 
writes me that he and his delega- 
tion now in Washington for the 
annual national convention are go- 
ing to give this bill every possible 
support during the week they will 
be in the capital. Floyd O. Booe 
and his delegation 'rom Northarn 
California chapter will be actively 
in the field also. 

"Every organization of the build- 
ing industry in California and r>s 
may personally interested individ- 
uals as possible should write at 
once to our senators and congress- 
men urging passage of this impor- 
tant bill. Cooperating associations 
and individuals writing to their 
representatives will assist the cam- 
paign by mailing a copy of the let- 
ter to their national association 
headquarters or to the national of- 
fice of the A.G.C., Munsey building. 
Washington. 

Following is the text of the bill, 
known as H. R. 6460: 

A Bill tc amend the Home Owners' 
Loan Act of 1933 by adding after sec- 
tion 4 thereof a new section; and to 
authorize home-mortgage loans, and 
to appropriate the sum of $500,000,000 
therefor, and for other purposes. 

Be It enacted by the Senate and 
House of Representatives of the Unit- 
ed States of America in Congress 
assembled, that the Home Owners- 
Loan .\ct of 1033 be. and it is hereby, 
amended by adding after section 4 
thereof a new section, as follows; 

"Sec. 4-A (1) The Corporation Is 
further authorized, for a period of 
three years from June 13, 1933, to 
nialte loans In cash for the construc- 
tion of homes, but no such plan shall 
exceed 7.1 per centum of the value of 
the structure and the land, or the 
sum of $20,000. Each such loan shall 
be a first lien on the property cov- 
ered thereby, arvd shall be secured by 



a duly recorded mortgage bearing in- 
terest at the rate of 5 per centum 
per annum and shall be amortized by 
means of monthly, quarterly, semi- 
annual, or annual payments sufBcient 
to retire the interest and principal 
within a period not to pxreed eight- 
een years. 

"(2) The Corporation Is further au- 
thorized for a period of three years 
from June 13, 1933, to make loans m

alterations of homes, but no such 
loan shall exceed 60 per centum of the 
value of the structure and the land 
before the improvement is made, or 
the sum of $3,500. Each such loan 
shall be a first lien on the property 
covered thereby, and shall be secur- 
ed by a duly recorded mortgage bear- 
ing interest at the rate of 5 per cent- 
um per annum and shall be amortized 
by means of monthly, quarterly, semi- 
annual, or annual payments sufficient 
to retire the interest and principal 
within a period not to exceed ten 
years. No such loan shall be made 
for the purpose of changing a home 
into any other type of structure. 

"(3) The Corporation is further au- 
thorized to purchase or agree to pur-

ment to purchase it shall be made 
under such rulings and regulation.^ 
as the Board may prescribe, and all 
such purchases shall be consummated 
within four years from June 13. 1933. 

"(4) The amount of the loans which

to enable the Secretary of the Treas- 
ury to make such payments when 
called, the Reconstruction Finance

ed to allocate and make available to 
the Secretary of the Treasury the 
.sum of $500,000,000 or so much therB 
of as may be necessary and for such

term 'home' means a dwelling for not 
more than two families." 



NRA LEADERS 
TO SPEAK AT 
CONVENTION 



General Contractors Will Hear 
Officials Discuss 

Recovery , 



Outstanding national figures in 
the advancement of the " New 
Deal," including Recovery Admin- 
istrator Hugh S. Johnson, Federal 
Relief Administrator Harry L. Hop- 
kins and Henry L Harriman, pres- 
ident of the United States Chamber 
of Commerce, are to discuss the 
problems and progress of recovery 
at the loth annual conventio'i of 
the Associated General Contractors 
of America, to be held in Wash- 
ington, January 29, 30 and 31, 
which is to be attended by hun- 
dreds of contractors from all parts 
of the country. 

Application of a satisfactory code 
of fair competition to the construc- 
tion industry, and its many divi- 
sions and sub-divisions, has been 
one of the most difficult problems 
with which the Reco\ery Admin- 
istration has been faced, according 
to A. C. Tozzer, of New York, pres- 
ident of the association, and it is 
expected that an exchange of va- 
rious viewpoints between the na- 
tion's contractors and Gen. John- 
son will have a most stimulating 
effect upon codification of the in- 
dustry. 

The assistance of responsible 
general contractors in carrying for- 
ward the emergency unemployment 
relief projects under the Civil 
Works Administration also is to 
be formally offered to Administra- 
tor Hopkins at the convention, so 
that the projects may have skilled 
and experienced supervision, Toz- 
zer states, and at the same time 
utilize a part of the va.st equipment 
and facilities of contractors that 
are now idle. 

Capital goods industry and recov- 
ery will be discussed by President 
Harriman, of the U. S. Chamber. 
who has been a strong advocate of 
the public works program as a ve- 
hicle for national recovery. Toz/er 
points out that capital goods find 
their largest market within the 
construction industry and he be- 
lieves that the report on the cur- 
rent real property inventory under- 
taken by the Bureau of Foreign and 
Domestic Commerce, to be made 
to the convention by Dr. Willard 
T. Thorp, director of the Bureau, 
will provide a valuable index to 
prospects of early revival in new 
residential construction. 

The highway construction pro- 
gram of the nation is to be dis- 
cussed at the convention by Thos. 
H. MacDonald, chief of the United 
States Bureau of Public Roads, 
while outstanding speakers from 
the heavy engineering and railroad 
construction fields also will be 
heard.

5. F. FIRM WINS 

LUMBER CONTRACT 



Receipt of a contract for approx- 
imately nine million board feet of 
piling and timber to be used in 
construction of Pearl Harbor Navy 
Yard improvements was announc- 
ed in San Francisco yesterday by 
A. M. Baxter, president of J. H. 
Baxter and Company, 333 Mont- 
gomery street. 

The material will be used by 
the Hawaiian Dredging Company, 
Honolulu, general contractors on 
the Pearl Harbor repair basin con- 
struction. 

Shipments from Pacific Coast 
mills of J. H. Baxter and Company 
will commence immediately and 
continue throughout the year. The 
timber will be transported on the 
company's own vessels. 



SACRAMENTO, Jan. 29— Suit of 
San Francisco labor unions to com- 
pel recognition of a state code 
wage scale in all highway con- 
struction contracts was taken un- 
der advisement today by Judge 
Peter J. Shields of the Sacramento 
county superior court. An early 
decision is expected. 

Judge Shields asked for a brief 
from the attorney-general supple- 
menting points in his argument 
and allowed five days for filing. 
Attorney A. L. Augustine as coun- 
sel for the state indicated that he 
would file the brief immediately, 
however. 

Further proceedings on all high- 
way contracts in Northern Califor- 
nia will remain suspended until 
the court decision is obtained, of- 
ficials said. It is expected that 
one or two contracts in Southern 
California will be released for ad- 
vertising tomorrow but no pro- 
ceedings will be initiated tor 
Northern California work ,a n d 
awards pending on four contracts 
will be delayed. 

Meanwhile a conference may be 
arranged between plaintiffs in the 
action. State Director of Public 
Works Earl Lee Kelly, Corpora- 
tion Commissioner E. M. Daugher- 
ty and Director of Industrial Re- 
lations T. A. Reardon in an effort 
to compromise. A settlement is 
being urged by many Interests to 
resume highway construction pro- 
gram which is now blocked by the 
court proceedings. Contracts esti- 
mated at $2,352,000 which were 
awaiting award or on which bids 
were to be opened shortly were 
stopped by the suit. 

The plaintiff unions allege that 
the Department of Public Works 
is compelled to specify a wage 
scale on highway contracts equal 
to that incorporated in the code 
of the Excavators and Dump Truck 
Contractors, which is substantially 
higher than the prevailing wage 
rates as determined by the com- 
mission.

The allotment to the city was 
made contingent upon a bond is- 
sue to be voted as security for the 
loan. No proceedings haTe been

Plans Ready for Vertical Lift 

Span to Replace Obsolete Bridge 

By F. W. Panhorst, Acting Bridge Engineer 
California Division of Highways 



After many years of waiting it 
now appears that the narrow, dan- 
gerous and unsightly bridge over 
the Sacramento River at "M" St., 
the westerly entrance to Sacramen- 
to, will soon be replaced by a new 
and modern structure. The budget 
of the State Division of Highways 
for the present biennium includes 
an item of $433,000 as the State's 
share tor constrnctinga new 
bridge. Cooperating with the State, 
Sacramento county has allotted 
$100,000 of the county's share of the 
gas tax from the present fiscal year 
budget and $133,000 from the next 
fiscal year budget to be used in 
conjunction with the State funds 
for the new bridge. 

The present bridge was built in 
1910 by the Sacramento Northern 
Railway Company with flnaticial 
cooperation from Yolo and Sacra- 
mento counties. The railway com- 
pany secured at that time a 50-year 
franchise extending to 1960, which 
has 26 years to run. This bridge, 
not intended for the heavy high- 
way traffic it now carries, but built 
primarily for railroad traffic and 
protected by a 50-year franchise, 
is to be replaced by a State bridge, 
built and operated by the State. 
Negotiations Necessary 

This situation necessitated num- 
erous conferences of State and rail- 
road officials in order to arrive at 
an agreement satisfactory to both. 
The position taken by the railroad 
company was one of cooperation 
and an agreement satisfactory to 
both parties has been executed. 

It must be remembered that no 
possible arrangement of tracks and 
highway could be such as to be en- 
tirely satisfactory to both railway 
and State. Naturally, the railway 
company would prefer to have a 
clear crossing not hindered by 
highway traffic, and the State 
would prefer a bridge with no rail- 
way interference, but neither the 
railway crossing nor the highway 
traffic could be eliminated. 

It was, of course, suggested that 
the highway traffic should be car- 
ried over the tracks clear of all 
rail interference. Such a solution 
was possible, but the cost would be 
far in excess of available funds and 
the property damage to "M" street 
due to the long run-off, as well as 
many other valid reasons which 
we will not attempt to enumerate 
here, made necessary the elimina- 
tion of such an overhead structure. 

At a conference held December 
22, attended by the railway com- 
pany and State officials agreement 
was finally reached on the type of 
structure agreeable to both. The 
Department immediately began fi- 
nal plans and specifications so that 
actual construction may be started 
as soon as the hazard of spring 
high water has passed. 

A combination railroad and high- 
way bridge of the vertical lift type 
will be constructed. The clear 



width between curbs will be 52 ft. 
with the railway tracks in the cen- 
ter, vehicular traffic being protect- 
ed by curbs which allow 13 feet 
tor railway traffic. Two lanes of 
highway traffic in each direction 
will be provided with the outside 
lanes 10 feet in width and the in- 
terior lanes 9 feet and 6 inches. 
Four-toot sidewalks will be placed 
on each side of the bridge outside 
of the girders. 

All New Piers 

Original plans provided for uti- 
lizing the present piers but detail- 
ed studies have nhown that a more 
economical and satisfactory struc- 
ture can be secured by building en- 
tirely new piers at new locations. 

A hearing was held October IS, 
1933, before a representative of the 
War Department and permit has 
been secured for a clear opening 
between fenders, for river traffic, 
of 170 feet and a vertical clear- 
ance, with span lifted, of 100 feet 
above high water. The grade of 
the bridge will be practically the 
same as at present with a lift span 
of 209 feet 6 inches in length flank- 
ed by two steel spans one 192 feet 
6 inches and the other 165 feet in 
length. 

The vertical lift type of struc- 
ture was decided upon after con- 
sidering all other possibilities. 
Novel Surfacing Feature 

A novel feature cf th,r structure 
will be the use of light weight con- 
crete for roadway slab and side- 
walk. This concrete will weigh but 
100 pounds per cubic foot while or- 
dinary concrete weighs 150 pounds. 
The light weight concrete will give 
3000 pounds per square inch com- 
pressive strength when 28 days old 
which is comparable to the heavier 
concrete now used. The lightness 
of weight is secured by using a 
special light weight aggregate. 

The value, or economy, of using 
the light weight ct—crete is that it 
materially decreases the dead load 
on the bridge which in turn per- 
mits of smaller sized steel mem- 
bers. 

As far as possible, the structure 
will be given suitable architectur- 
al treatment. The State Division 
of Architecture is cooperating to 
insure an esthetic structure. 

Special attention is being given 
to the entrance and exit to the 
bridge in order that a pleasing ap- 
pearance will be secured. Special 
attention is also being given to the 
approach across Frant Street that 
a smooth street grade will replace 
the existing rough journey over the 
various railway tracks. 

Temporary Bridge Necessary 

During construction of the bridge 
vehicular traffic will be routed over 
the "I" Street bridge and rail traf- 
fic over a temporary bridge to be 
built just upstream from the exist- 
ing "M" Street bridge. 

After considering all possibili- 
ties of rerouting the rail traffic

FUND APPROPRIATED 

The San Francisco board of si) 
pervisors has voted an appropria 
tion of $5000 to cover preliminary 
engineering costs on the sewer ei 
tensions and high pressure systen 
for which bond issues were author 
ized in November. The money wil: 
be taken from the emergency fund 
which will be reimbursed when thf 
bonds are sold. 

Plans are being prepared under 
supervision of Director of Publi-

across the river the most econon

the work will be completed prior to
