CITY TO START 
$758,000 PROGRAM 
OF STREET^WORK 

First Contracts Aided By 
PWA Fund Ready For 
Advertising 

The first contracts in San Fran- 
cisco's $759,000 PWA program of 
street improvements will be ready 
for advertising immediately after 
the first of the year and the bal- 
ance of the program placed on the 
market shortly thereafter, accord- 
ing to City Engineer John J. Casey. 
Of the total cost of the program, 
which Casey estimated at $759,681, 
the city will provide $417,825 and 
PWA will furnish $341,856. 

Most of the projects are located 
in the industrial district around the 
San Francisco-Oakland bay bridge 
approach. Immediate improvement 
of these streets is necessitated by 
the scheduled completion of that 
structure in November, 1936. 

Seventeen projects, including pav- 
ing, roadway resurfacing and side- 
walk narrowing, are planned. Fol- 
lowing is a list of the projects and 
the estimated cost of each:

JANUARY 15 NEW 

PWA DEADLINE 



The deadline for awarding 
contracts on PWA projects is ad- 
vanced definitely to January 15. 
State PWA Director A. D. Wil- 
der has been notified. The exten- 
sion from Dec. 15 was granted 
to permit many applicants to 
qualify projects which could not 
be placed under contract earlier. 
Jobs which have not reached 
the contract stage by January 
15 are due to lose their allot- 
ments and the money may either 
be reapportioned to other appli- 
cants or turned into the general 
fund of the Treasury, Mr. Wil- 
der said. 

Work will start on virtually 
ail PWA projects in Northern 
California before that date, ac- 
cording to current progress. 
Nearly all projects on which 
original bids were rejected have 
been readvertised for opening 
within the next two weeks. 



$1,000,000 For 
Continued Work 
On Boise Project 



Work on the Payette division of 
the Boise Federal reclamation proj- 
ect in Idaho, halted recently due to 
a report of insufficient unemployed 
labor was available in the vicinity 
of the construction, will be resum- 
ed. Secretary of the Interior Har- 
old L. Ickes has announced. A re- 
canvass of the labor situation has 
disclosed that adequate labor is 
available, according to Secretary 
Ickes. 

The Payette division has receiv- 
ed an allotment of $1,000,000 from 
work relief funds for construction 
of irrigation works. Award of con- 
tract for construction of four tun- 
nels of the Black Canyon Conduit, 
delayed pending a survey of the 
labor situation, is expected in the 
near future. 



October shipments of nand fire 
extinguishers numbered 31,556, as 
compared with 24,007 in October 
ast year, and 17,996 in October 1933 
the Bureau of the Census reports. 



1935 BUILDING 
PERMITS HIGHEST 
IN FOUR YEARS 



Eastbay Cities Report Totals 
Double Previous 
Twelve Months 



Building permits issued in S.qu 
Francisco and Oakland during 1935 
reached the highest total in four 
years. 

San Francisco, reporting a 12- 
month total of $11,344,783, shows 
an increase of more than fifty per- 
cent from 1934, the low period of 
the depression. The total was 
slightly higher than in 1933 ,ind 
about $1,500,000 over 1932. 

Oakland reported permit values 
in 1935 more than double the value 
of 1934. The depression low in the 
Eastbay city was reached in 1933 
and a moderate gain was reported 
in 1934. But the last year has 
brought the volume back nearly to 
the 1931 level. The 1935 total was 
$6,666,916, compared with $2,802,- 
136 in 1934. 

Berkeley permits likewise were 
twice the value of those in 1934. 
The city reported a twelve-month 
total of $1,354,384 in 1935, compar- 
ed with $659,650 in 1934. 

San Francisco permits in Decem- 
ber included a $200,000 apartment 
building, the largest contract of 
this class awarded since 1929. The 
building will be a Class A struc- 
ture, located at Broadway and Bu- 
chanan Streets. It was designed by 
Architect H. C. Baumann. Meyer 
Construction Company is contmc- 
tor. ♦■ 

Single-family dwellings, as rep- 
resented by the total for frame con- 
struction, for which permits were 
issued in December are valued at 
$416,718. It is the largest total for 
December in any year since 19,30 
and is the best for any month of 
the past year excepting October. 
Ninety -five permits of this class 
were granted. 

Public building contracts totaled 
$345,623 during the month. Includ- 
ing the awards for a headquarters 
building of the 1938 Bay Exposition 
and the Girls' gymnasium at Poly- 
technic High School.

Bay Crossing Contracts 

To Be Completed in 1936 



World's Greatest Bridge 

Will Be Opened 

In November 



Only eleven months more and 
the construction of the worlds 
largest bridge will be California 
history. 

This is the essence of the 1936 
New Year's Day report to Gover- 
nor Frank F. Merriam, chairman 
of the California Toll Bridge Au- 
thority, by State Director of Pub- 
lic Works Earl Lee Kelly, 

Despite the pace of the 30-hour 
week and the obstacles which na- 
ture places in the way when man 
seeks to set new engineering fron- 
tiers in defiance to the hazards of 
deep water and dizzy heights, the 
world's largest bridge will finish 
ahead of schedule. By November, 
1936. Chief Engineer C. H. Purcell 
expects to have finished cleaning 
up the newly paved decks of the 
bridge so that the bridge may be op- 
ened to traffic during November. 

Thus f.ar approximately $40,000,- 
000 has been expended on the 
bridge and approaches. During 1936 
the bridge proper and its approach- 
es representing $61,600,000 at 

present estimates — will have been 
completed and the remaining $15,- 
000,000 worth of work which rep- 
resents the cost of the interurbau 
railway on the bridge will, if pres- 
ent negotiations with the railroads 
and R.F.C. are successful, be well 
under way. The railway portion of 
the bridge will not be completed 
until after the highway decks have 
been opened up to the traveling 
public. 

"The building of this world's 
greatest $77,600,000 bridge between 
San Francisco and Oakland," Di- 
rector of Public Works Kelly s.aid, 
"and its sister bridge, the $35,000.- 
000 Golden Gate Structure, sets in 
motion the tidal wave of public in- 
terest in California which is to 
produce a tremendous Exposition 
on a specially made island in San 
Francisco Bay in 1938. The entire 
west is tributary to these great 
bridges and California is the spe- 
cial beneficiary. The engineering 
wonders of these two record-break- 
ing structures have turned the eyes 
of the world on America, on Cali- 
fornia, and on San Francisco Bay — 
just as Boulder Dam has turned 
the spotlight on Los Angeles. The 
State of California is proud to pre- 
sent to California this San Fran- 
cisco - Oakland Bay Bridge which, 
eminent authorities have said, will 
hold its place a.s the greatest bridge 
in the world for one thousand years. 
During its first year we expect the 



F. BAY BRIDGE 
PROGRESS SCHEDULE 



Chief Engineer C. H. Purcell 
reports units of the San Fran- 
cisco-Oakland Bay Bridge will 
be completed during 1936 as fol- 
lows:

bridge to carry 6,000,000 vehicles, 
and full prosperity only needs to 
return to give the bridge an annual 
passenger traffic of 50,000,000 per- 
sons." 

Work completed in 1935 is listed 
as follows: 

East Bay: Five 504-foot through 
truss spans, east and west canti- 
lever anchor arms, west cantilever 
arm. completed in 1935. 

Verba Buena Island: Three 300- 
foot deck truss spans over the east 
side of the Island completed in 1935 
together with towers supporting 
them. The vehicular tunnel thru 
Verba Buena Island was fully ex- 
cavated and lined with concrete by 
the end of 1935 and construction of 
the upper deck started. At the be- 
ginning of 1935 the vehicular tun- 
nel was in the stage where three 
small excavations (two at the bot- 
tom and one at the crown) had 
been bored through the wall and 
the concrete footings for part of 
the side walls poured. Therefore, 
during 1935 it may be said th^t 



Rail System And Interurban 

Construction To Start 

This Year 



save for three pilot tunnels, entire 
excavation of the Yerba Buena la- 
land tunnel was accomplished. In 
the category of concrete work, all 
but the footings for the side walls 
were poured during the year 1935 — 
the footings having been laid in the 
Fall of 1934. Similarly, all the con- 
crete viaduct at the east portal of 
the tunnel, a section of the bridge 
approximately 800 feet long, was 
built during 1935. 

West Bay: At the start of 1935. 
the last of the foundation work was 
being done; some concrete was 
Btill being poured at Pier A ne.-ir 
Beale Street, San Francisco; and 
the concrete center anchorage, a 
mile off the San Francisco shore, 
was being raised by the superstruc- 
ture contractor to the height where 
it was to be taken over by the Co- 
lumbia Steel Company for cable 
spinning. The superstructure con- 
tractor had erected Towers W-2, 
W-3 and W-6; and had raised W-5 
to 155 feet with approximately 350 
feet to go. The fenders for Pier 
W-4 and W-3 were not yet com- 
plete. 

Eyebars on both the San Fran- 
cisco and Yerba Buena Island An- 
chorages had been set up and were 
practically ready for cable spin- 
ning, and locker posts at Pier W-1 
on the Embarcadero and at Yerba 
Buena Island Anchorage were un- 
der way. 

During 1935, catwalks on both 
the West Bridge and East Suspen- 
sion Bridge were built and the spin- 
ning machinery erected. Spinning 
was completed during the year on 
the West Bridge between San Fran- 
cisco and the Center Anchorage; 
and half completed on the East 
Bridge between the Center Anchor- 
age and Yerba Buena Island. Ca- 
ble bands were bolted around the 
suspension cable and the first 
sections of the actual decks of the 
bridge were being hung from the 
cables in the last mouth of 1935. 

Two weeks before New Year's 
Day, January. 1935, the $835,000 
field painting contract had been 
awarded to Bridge Builders. Inc., 
and half of this gigantic painting 
job was completed in 1935. 

Contracts for construction of the 
Toll House and Maintenance Build- 
ings were awarded in July, 1935, 
and are now well under way. Also 
in July, 1935, the contract for the 
lighting of the bridge and electrical 
work was awarded and construc- 
tion of the units is now going o-i.

Structural Steel 
Awards Increase 
During November 



Contracts for fabricated struc- 
tural steel let during November 
were slightly in excess of the aver- 
age monthly tonnage contracted 
for during the eleven months of 
this year, according to reports re- 
ceived by the American Institute 
of Steel Construction. On the oth- 
er hand, the total tonnage produced 
and the total tonnage shipped dur- 
ing this month recorded a slight 
decline from the monthly average. 
This is seasonally expected. The 
industry as a whole operated at 
33.4 per cent of normal during No- 
vember, the average monthly rate 
was 37. ."i per cent. , 



12-MONTH TOTAL 
REVEALS GAINS 
IN 7 STATES 



Year Marked Return Of 

Capital To Residence 

Financing 

At the end of 193.5 the building 
industry in the western states was 
making rapid strides back toward 
a normal volume. 

During the year building permits 
issued by principal city and county 
inspection departments in seven 
states totaled $130,553,335, an in- 
crease of 91 percent over the total 
of 1934. 

Starting well ahead of corre- 
sponding months in the previous 
year that marked the industry's 
near all-time low, the volume of 
building awards increased steadily* 
and an unexpected spurt in Decem- 
ber put the la-st month of the year 
almost at the peak. December- 
awards were sufficient to place the 
last quarter of year ahead of pre- 
vious three-month period totals. 

Recovery, in the residential field 
Avas the notable feature of the year. 
Reports indicate a larger invest- 
ment in single-family dwellings last 
year than in any year since 1931. 
Alterations and repairs accounted 
for about the same expenditure as 
in 1934, consequently forming a 
much smaller proportion of the to- 
tal. Commercial and industrial . 
building showed some increase, but 
still remains a relatively small fac- 
tor. 

The recovery was general, al- 
though exceptional gains -were 
made in some localities. Los An- 
geles permits jumped from $14,- 
.500,000 in 1934 to more than $32.- 
000.000. Long Beach. Oakland and 
Fresno, among the ten cities lead- 
ing in volume this year, reported 
permits more than double a year 
ago.

INJUNCTION GRANTED 

EL CENTRO, Imperial Co., Calif.— 
Under an order signed by Federal 
Judge Harry Hollzer, at Los Angeles, 
the temporary injunction restraining 
the Imperial Irrigation District from 
proceeding with its $12,000,000 power 
plant was continued until January 6. 
The order was made on the request of 
attorneys for the Nev-Cal Securities 
Compay, which is seeking to halt the 
power plant project. The order pro- 
hibits the irrigation district from 
making any expenditures on the pow- 
er project. Whether the restrainmg 
order shall remain in effect until the 
case is taken to the Circuit Court of 
Appeals in San Francisco will be ar- 
gued on the January date. The se- 
curities firm contends that the State 
law under which the project was 
launched is unconstitutional. It also 
attacks the validity of later develop- 
ments. 12

U. S. PERMITS 
INCREASE 12% 
IN DECEMBER 

Dun & Bradstreet Survey 

Shows 71% Improvement 

In Year Total 

The hnilding industry, as measur- 
e^l by the value ot permits taken 
but tor new buildings, alterations 
aJid repairs, closed the past year 
with a sharp upward spurt. Instead 
of a small seasonal decline usually 
witnessed in December, the permit 
volume for that month in 215 cities 
of the United States rose to $62.- 
092.039 from $56,276,588 in Novem- 
ber, or an increase of 12.0 per cent, 
according to Dun & Bradstreet, Inc. 
With the exception of the October 
total of $66,965,705, last month's 
figure was the highest since Octo- 
ber, 1931, and was almost treble 
the value of permits in December, 
1934. which amounted to only $21.- 
125,723. 

Scattered throughout the country, 
such cities at Pittsburgh. Troy. Cin- 
(*innati. Detroit. Xashville, Okla- 
hoTiia City. St. Louis, Sioux Falls, 
Los Angeles and Seattle reported 
particularly large increases in De- 
c'^^^iber building. In the 214 cities 
otitside of New York, the conteih- 
plated building totalled$48,781,834 
in December, an increase of 12.5 
per cent Over November, and 179.2 
per cent'bver the sam'e month last 
year. 

New York City also gained rapid- 
ly in December, permits amounting 
to $14,210,205, an increase of 10.3 
l>er cent above November and of 
289.7 per cent above the corre- 
sponding month a year ago. 

The record for 19."?5 in the build- 
ing industry eclipsed all previous 
years back to 1931. With the up- 
ward rush in the final month, the 
total value of permits for the 12 
months just ended reached an ag- 
gregate of $596,686,708 against $348- 
390,747 for the similar period of 
1934, or a rise of 71.3 per cent. The 
1935 building permit total was the 
largest since 1931.

COPPER SALES 

TO INCREASE 



More than 200,000,000 pounds 
of copper may be used by the 
building industry during 1936, 
according to estimates of the 
manufacturers. This would be 
an increase of about one-third 
over the copper products sales 
to builders last year. The esti- 
mate covers material used In 
roofing, pipe and tubing for wat- 
er lines, wiring, hardware, light- 
ing fixtures, Insulation, weather- 
proofing, water heaters, etc. Ex- 
pansion of mechanical refrigera- 
tion sales and air-conditioning 
installations due to rehabilita- 
tion and new building also will 
benefit the copper industry.

Geo. Petersen Wins Suit To Recover 
Bid Security On Healdsburg Contract 

Suit for return of bid security which had been impounded by the 
Healdsburg High School District was won yesterday by George Peter- 
sen, San Leandro building contractor, terminating a case which has 
been of wide interest in the building industry. The school trustees 
sought to forfeit a certified check which Mr. Petersen deposited with 
his bid after a bona fide error in computing the bid total had been 
disclosed. 

The contractor obtained an injunction restraining the district fronn 
casiiiug the chock and yesterday 



$1,000,000 IN 
POWER PROPOSAL 
FOR CONSTRUCTION 



received notice of a final decision 
in his favor by Judge W. D. L. 
Held in Sonoma County Superior . 
Court. 

Judge Held found that the school 
district had suffered no damage 
from Mr. Petersen's error and that 
there is no statutory lequirement 
for forfeiture of the bid Becurity. 

Failure of the PWA to i-oncur in 
an award to Mr. Petersefi is cited 
as further ground for relieving the 
contractor of an obligation, since 
the school .authorities were then 
without power to let the contarct 
on which they subsequently sought 
to penalize the bidder. 

Attorney Marcus Hardin of thf? 
firm of Decoto and St. Sure, Oak- 
land, represented Mr. Petersen in 
the suit. The text of Judge Held's 
decision as received yesterday by 
Attorney Hardin follows: 

Tlip plaintiff is a luiiMing contrac- 
tor. The defendant consi.sts of the - 
Board of trustees of Heald.sburs High 
School District, the individual mem- " 
bers of that Boar.l, Paul E. Crabli, 
the principal of the Healdsburg Hisli 
School, Chas. O. Scott, the Country 
Treasurer of Sonoma Couniy, and tht^ 
First National Hank In San I..eandio. 

The defendant Board of High School 
Trustees advertised for bids for the 
construction of an addition to the 
High School building: the plaintiff 
made a bid of $f)7.!»'.<0.00 for such oon- 
strnction, which bid was the lowest 
received by the Trustees. Accompany- 
ing his bid, plaintiff deposited hi.s cer- 
tified chec;k on defendant First Na- 
tional Bank in San Leandro, anvl said 
check has been deposited witlx the. 
defendant County Treasurer. The 
plaintiff claims that his bid .should 
have been $77,990.00. and that through 
a mistake in the addition of a col; 
umn of figure*; It was erroneousl.v 
made for $10,000.00 le-s.s than the cor- 
rect amount. It is .alleged in the com- 
plaint that the defe'r.dant.s. Board of 
Trustee.s, seek to collect and retain 
the amount of said check, and to for- 
feit thf .^anie. Plaintiffs seek injunc- 
tive relief against the threatened acf.s, 
of .said deftndanls and the recovery 
of .saifl check. 

I have carefully examined into tl!- 
evidence, and am convinced that the 
plaintiff made an honest mistake in 
the preparation of hi.<! bid: one that 
was fundamental rather than inci- 
dental: and that equity should afford 
him relief. A Cal. Juris, page 7S3. 
Sec. 19. 56 Cal. Juris, page 490; S( c. 
526. In Moffett vs. Rot.hestfr, 44 Ui S. 
(Law E-d.) IIOS, the .Supremo C„„rt nf ' 
the United States held in a similar, 
case, that the proposal made by the 
contractor wa.s one which be.jiiever' 
Intended to make, and that, the Mii-icfs 
of the parties never met upon h' con- 
tract based thereon,. Other cusea to 
the sumo effect, are: 

Board of Rfigent.s vs. Coio 27.1 i^' 
VV. 508. - 

Judgment will he. (hat 'rlaintiff ha\e 



recovery of his check. 

fTnion vs. Anderson, 240 N. \\*. I'O'. 
.Martens 'v.<5. City.' 171 Xl' V.' Hupp.' ST. 
Harper vs. City. 14."> N. V. Supp. 59. 
Kut.sche vs. Ford. 192 N. W. 714. 
liftm-A vs. Bend.er, 72 N. E. 154. 

In <>ach of the above cases, the con- 
tract was to be entered into with a 
public a.gency, and in several forfei- 
ture WHS sought of security' deposited 
pvu-suant to a statute. • 

The defendants here contend thUt 
even Uiough relief may be granted 
against a forfeiture based on contract, 
there can be none in case of a statu- 
tory forfeiture. They cite Mill Valley 
vs. Bonding Co. «S C.A. S72. To the 
.-ame effect is Farnsworth vs. M & I* 
R.R. Co. 23 U. S. (law Ed) 530. Union 
L & S Co. vs. United States, 257 Fed. 
fiSS. But these cases to have no ap-' 
plicability here. Xo statute is pointed 
out as requiring the forfeiture sought 
herein by defendants. And if there 
were such a statute, there could be 
no forfeiture except for a failure to 
enter into the contract resulting from 
a ■ proposal and its acceptance. If 
tliete was no meeting of the minds of 
tlie parties, there was no contract 
UK reed upon, and if none was agreed 
upon, there was no breach; and even 
though th statute denumd a forfeiture 
f<jr a breach of contract, it would first 
lie necessary to establish a breach. 
The case of Donaldson vs. Abraham 
122 Pac. 1003. holds that "equity has 
llie same power to relieve from for- 
feitures provided for by statute as it 
has to relieve from forfeitures pro- 
vided fur by ordinary contract." 

In this case, I fail to see where de- 
fendant Board of Trustees, or the Dis- 
trict, or the principal, have suffered 
any damage. The plaintiff made an 
honest mistake, and without delay de- 
termined that he had made a mistake 
and coiumunicaled the fact to the 
school authorities. On Jan. 17, 1935, 
Mr. Cra{j(b (Udvi^ed plaintiff that the 
nuttter had been referred to the Build- 
ing Codei' authorities "and that the 
Board of Trustees will take no action 
until a reply is-. received." The en- 
tire matter was then in the hand's 
iif the Building-; Code authorities, and 
plaintiff had tlj.e assurance of the 
.Sfthool ofTicials that tlie matter would 
remain in status quo until the Code 
authority had acted. A hearing was 
had and on Feb. C. 1935. the "P.W.A." 
approval for the execution of the con- 
tract had been withdrawn. The reso- 
lution and correspondence of Jan. 24 
and 28, 1935, did not alter the situa- 
tion. The "\V.P..\." approval was 
neoeiiiiary -to the authority of th* 
.■school offlj-ials to enter mto a con- 
tract, and that approval was given; 
Jan. 14, 1935. but for all practical pur- 
poses, suspended the following day. 
and finally entirely withdrawn on 
l'"eb. U. 1935. U would sceui that the 
defendants are seeking to recover a 
penalty for the failure of plaintiff to* 
enter ito a contract, which defenduul 
.■school authorltie.i ■ thtmsMves . weif 
without power to «xecute. 



City's Municipal Distribution 

Plan Would Utilize 

Existing Lines 



Expenditure of about $1,000,000 
for new construction is contem- 
plated in a plan for municipal di.s- 
tributlon of Hetch Hetchy power 
which the San Francisco Board of 
Supervisors has approved. The 
board has authorized Public Utili- 
ties Commission oflScials to nego- 
tiate with the Federa' government 
for consent to the proposal ns a 
means of satisfying provisions of 
the Raker Act. 

Manager of Utilities E. G. Caliill 
and Paul J. Ost, electrical engineer. 
will present the plan to Secretary 
of the Interior Harold Ickes. 

Mr. Cahill's estimate of initial in; 
vestment necessary to distribute 
power now being developed on the 
Hetch Hetchy system is: 
Purchase of portion of P. G. 

& B lines within the city.;.-J16,575.00O 

Alterations and additions 600,009 

Office. Shops, Warehouse & 

Equipment 1,000,000 

Materials and Supprin-^". 75.000 

AVorking Cash. P.50.000 

Total $18.fi00.'if>,') 

The city would purchase suffi- 
cient of the Pacific Oas and Elec- 
tric Company distribution plant to 
absorb a peak capacity of 69,500 
kws., the total capacity of Hetch 
Hetchy plants transmitted to S'ln 
Francisco for distribution. 

The territory proposed for niu-, 
nicipal lines is the major part of 
the Western Addition lying west oi" 
Van Ness Avenue and south of Sac- 
ramento St.. the entire Richmond." 
Sunset, Parkside and west of Twin 
Peaks district, and a considerable 
portion of the Mission district. 

In order to avoid duplication of 
facilities, Mr. Cahill has recom- 
mended that the city continue an • 
existing contract with the P. G. & 
E. by which it delivers at Newark 
substation the entire Hetch Hetchy 
output at a '75 per cent load factor. 
But instead of permitting the pow- 
er company to retail the current the 
city will take delivcuy at wholesale 
rates at substation bus bars in San 
Francisco and distribute in its own 
lines. The company would retain 
a power surpliis estimated at 207.- 
000,000 kw-hrs. as compensation for 
transmitting between New-ark and 
San Francisco. Standby service al- 
so would be provided by the com- 
pany. 

The only new constru'ctinn to he 
undertaken by the city would be 
administration and maintenance . 
headquarters, estimated at $1,000,- 
000. 

Alterations and additions, estimat- 
ed at $600,000. include reconnecting 
feeders, particularly thosv former-* 
ly the pi-operly of the Grfuit Wl'.sjL-.^ 
er II Power Company whicb. iidw fitti ' 
served' from siibstatioris outsidp -the

Award of a contract to P. L. Btirr, 
320 Market St., San Francisco, at 
$58,620 for constructing a municipal 
waterworks in Dos Palos has been 
approved by PWA. A protest filed 
by Oakland Sewer Constr. Co., second 
low bidder, and the Associated Gen- 
eral Contractors, Northern California 
Chapter was dismissed. 

Protest was based on a waiver by 
the city council of Burr's failure to 
file a certified check with his bid. 
The council held this omission was 
not sufficient to disqualify the pro- 
posal. 

A temporary restraining order 
against the award granted liy th« San 
Francisco Snaperior C'ourt was dis- 
solved after a hearing January 7. 

Work will provide for a supply from

ALAMEDA PROJECT 

GETS PWA FUNDS 



Bids for reconstruction and re- 
moval of earthquake hazards at 
Alameda high school to cost an 
estimated $89,000 are expected 
to be asked shortly, following 
approval this week by PWA of 
the district's application for a 
$40,063 grant to aid in financing 
the work. Rehabilitation of the 
high school auditorium and gym- 
nasium, both of which have 
been closed for nearly a year 
for failure to conform with pro- 
visions of the state earthquake 
safety act, will be carried out 
with the funds now available. 

Plans were prepared by L. H. 
Nishkian, Harold Hammin and 
the late Earle Russell, s^-uctur- 
al engineers, and Architect Carl 
Werner. 



Alameda Council 
Loses In Fight 
On City Substation 



Alameda county superior court 
yesterday affirmed the right of the 
Alameda Municipal Board of Pub 
lie Utilities to proceed with con- 
struction of a new substation build- 
ing at Grand street and Eagle av- 
enue over the objections of the city 
council. W. E. Lyons Construction 
Company, contractor for the build 
ing, was denied a permit by the 
city building inspection department 
when the firm sought to proceed 
with the work. 

J>uperior .Judge Peter J. Crosby 
in ruling on a petition of the utili- 
ties hoard for permission to erect 
the building declared that a build 
ing permit was not required since 
the work was for a branch of the 
municipal government. 

Work on the new substation, 
whjfh with equipment will cost 
about $200,000. has been opposed 
by the city council. 



New orders for oil burners dur- 
ing the first eleven months last 
year numbered l.')4..'jl6, the Bureau 
of the Census reports, as compared 
with 101,544 during the correspond- 
ing period in 1934. 



BAY PROJECTS 
GIVEN $1,800,000 
HIGHWAY FUNDS 

Commission Allocates Addi- 
tional Money For Three 
Routes 

Funds for additional highway con 
struction in the San Francisco Bay 
district amounting to $1,880,000 ov- 
er the original budget program 
have been allocated by the State 
Highway Commission since it b-> 
came apparent that increase gaso- 
line tax revenues would permit 
more work than had been planned. 

The new money will go to three 
projects. Largest of them is the , 
Waldo approach to the Golden Gate 
Bridge, for which $500,000 was plac- 
ed in the original budget. This sum 
has been increased to $1,750,000, all 
of it coming from state funds since 
no agreement could be made with 
the Federal government for use of 
emergency work-relief money. An 
additional section of the Coast 
Shore highway between Farallon 
City and Rockaway Beach is to be 
graded with $330,000 of state and 
county money appropriated to Joint 
Highway District No. 9. The state - 
is contributing $205,000 for con- ' 
struction and $50,000 for right of 
way purchase. The balance is to 
be contributed by San Francisco. 
San Mateo and Santa Cruz coun- 
ties. 

The third additional allotment is .' 
$300,000 for work on the realign-x-: 
ment and reconstruction of the Oak-r^ ^ 
land-Walnut Creek route, between^ 
the east portal of the Broadway 
low-level tunnel and Walnut Creek. 
The original budget provided $325,- 
000 for this Work and the sum has 
been increased to $625,000.

PACIFIC CONSTRUCTOR 



BUREAU EXPANDS 
ENGINEER STAFF 
ON C. V. PROJ. 



Three Division Offices Opened ; 

Prepare To Let 

Contract 



The staff of the U. S. Reclama- 
tion Service under Walker Young, 
construction engineer for the Cen- 
tral Valley Water Project, is being 
enlarged rapidly as plans proceed 
for expenditure of the initial $15.- 
000,000 appropriation now available. 

Headquarters of the project in 
Sacramento have been moved from 
the new Federal building to the 
Old Postofflce building where more 
space is available. Offices have 
been opened in Redding, Antioch 
and Friant. 

R. B. Snell, resident engineer at 
Redding for the Kennett division, 
has recently added to his staff O. 
B. Misz as location engineer for the 
railroad work and Paul Guyer, of- 
fice engineer. Russell Chase of 
Portland has been engaged as con- 
sulting engineer for the railroad re- 
location. A crew of about forty 
men is engaged in preliminary 
work at the dam site. 

Relocation of a section of the 
Southern Pacific tracks near Red- 
ding probably will be the first con- 
struction contract advertised in the 
Central Valley Project. Plans have 
been completed and a call for bids 
is expected from the Denver office 
within a few days. 

Oscar G. Boden, former engineer 
on the Owyhee Project, is in charge 
of the Contra Costa division with 
offices in Antioch. At present Mr. 
Boden is supervising work on all 
canal sections of the project. 

Harry S. Williams, associate engi- 
neer in the bureau, has established 
headquarters near Friant dam site, 
where the second construction con- 
tract is scheduled to start. The bu- 
reau has allocated $3,500,000 to the 
Friant division for initial construc- 
tion. 

New members of the Sacramento 
headquarters staff include Court- 
landt Eaton, former Los Angeles 
county flood control engineer, and 
Earle R. Mills, chief clerk. 



MERCURY TUBES 

IN NEW PRINTER 

The Pease Model "7" continuous 
blue-printing machine, designed to 
meet the growing demand for con- 
tinuous printing of moderate re- 
quirements, is announced by the C. 
F. Pease Co., 813 North Franklin 
Street, Chicago, Illinoiis. The ma- 
chine will reproduce material as 
blue-prints, brown-prints or direct 
process prints in any dimensions 
up to 42 inches in width. Uniform 
illumination, ))rovided by mercury 
vapor tubes, and simplicity of op- 
eration are among fe.atures listed 
by the manufacturer, who will send 
full information upon request. 



Contracts On First Units Authorized 
$5,500,000 In State Building Fund; 

With the largest state building program to be undertaken in recent 
years, the State Division of Architecture will contract approximately 
$5,500,000 within the eighteen-month period ending June 30, 1937. Since 
the first of the year State Architect George B. McDougall has placed 
on the market approximately $800,000 in contracts. Other projects will 
be released as rapidly as they are approved by the various state agencies 
for which the work is being done. 

Funds at the disposal of the Division of Architecture include $3,- 

7r>o,000 appropriated by the last 

legislature for additions at state 
institutions; $1,200,000 for erecting 
two office buildings at Sacramento; 
$700,000 for the San Mateo Live- 
stock Pavilion. 



The pavilion contract was adver- 
tised several weeks ago, but bids 
were rejected when they exceeded 
the appropriation. Since that date 
a WPA project has been approved 
for excavating and constructing the 
foundations up to the first floor line. 
WPA promises to complete this 
work by March 15. Meanwhile ap- 
proval is being sought in Washing- 
ton for use of the authorized $200,- 
000 PWA grant to construct the 
balance of the structure. When it 
is received the state is ready to 
take new bids. 

A contract has been let for ex- 
cavating the site of the two new 
office buildings in Sacramento and 
lor driving pile foundations. Bids 
have been invited on the general 
contract for the Motor Vehicle 
building and the division is ready 
to advertise the Public Works 
building within the next month. 
Each structure will cost $600,000, 
it is estimated. 

Two contracts are being adver- 
tised in the $3,750,000 institutional 
building program. One is for the 
laundry building at Camarillo Hos- 
pital to cost about $75,000; the oth- 
er for a ward at Norwalk Hospital 
to cost about $120,000. 

State Director of Institutions 
Harry Lutgens has approved call- 
ing for bids on a custodial unit at 
Mendocino Hospital to cost $200,- 
000; a dairy building at Camarillo 
which with equipment will cost 
$100,000; a ward building at Stock- 
ton, $90,000; cold storage and ice 
plant, ward building and industrial 
units at Camarillo and additions at 
Patton Hospital. Contracts will be 
let on these jobs at an early date. 

Other portions of the hospital 
program are being withheld tem- 
porarily pending further negotia- 
tion with the Federal government 
for grants to supplement the state's 
fund. 



TURLOCK DISTRICT 
NAMES SUPERINTENDENT 



Directors of Turlock Irrigation 
District have promoted Oscar Ros- 
tad from the position of electrical 
foreman to superintendent of elec- 
trical distribution. He succeeds 
Clifford E, Plummer, resigned to 
become electrical engineer for the 
Modesto Irrigation District. 



VOTERS APPROVE 
$200,000 BONDS 
FOR KERN HIGH 



Architect Promises Early Start 

On Construction Of 

School Units 



A bond issue of $200,000 for new 
building at Kern County Union 
High School in Bakersfield was ap- 
proved by voters at a special elec- 
tion Friday. The bond issue' iwijli 
provide funds for a new classroom 
and study hall building and for al- 
teration and repair of the girls' 
gymnasium. 

Architect Chas. H. Biggar an- 
no u n c e d that the architectural 
plans for the new classroom and 
study hall building already are com- 
plete and that the board probably 
will be able to call for bids the lat- 
ter part of February. 

It is planned to begin construc- 
tion of the new building by the mid- 
dle of March, he said, so that it 
may be completed for the begin- 
ning of the fall semester in Sep- 
tember. The building will house 
four classrooms on the lower floor, 
a study hall on the second floor 
and heating and ventilating units 
and storerooms on the ground floor. 

The building will be erected just 
south of the high school library 
building, which it will match archi- 
tecturally, according to Mr. Biggar. 
It will be of reinforced concrete 
construction, fireproof and earth- 
quake resistant. 



BOOKLET ON ANALYSIS 
OF CONCRETE FRAMES 



To aid in analysis of concrete 
builidng frames subject to vertical 
load, wind pressure and earthquake 
forces, Portland Cement Associa- 
tion has published a booklet, "Con- 
tinuity in Concrete Building 
Frames." Subjects treated in the 
booklet include underlying assump- 
tions, derivations, discussions and 
special studies, much of which are 
given in the form of numerical 
problems. 

Copies may be obtained without 
charge by writing the Portland Ce- 
ment Association, 3."? West Grand

Shoals Dredging Contracts To Be Let; 
U. S. Engineers Direct $3,000,000 Job 



First contracts for reclamation of Verba Buena shoals will be 
placed on the market shortly, it was learned yesterday following an- 
nouncement by President Leiand W. Cutler of the San Francisco Bay 
Exposition that $3,043,120 for the project will be turned over to the 
War Department this week. 

Mr. Cutler said he had learned through a long distance telephone 

(ouveisation with WPA officials in 

Washington that the transfer of 
funds, the "go-ahead" signal await- 
ed by U. S. Engineers here, will 
be made in the current week. 

Advertisement for bids, award 
of contracts and supervision of the 
th project will be in the hands of 
the r. S. Engineers, headed by Lt.- 
Col. J. A. Dorst, San Francisco dis- 
trict engineer. 

First contracts for dredging and 
construction of a seawall around 
the 400-acre exposition site and fu- 
ture airport, one of the largest Pa- 
cific Coast projects of its sort on 
record, will be advertised shortly 
after authorization to proceed i.s re- 
ceived here, the district engineer 
told Daily Pacific Builder. 

Work will include approximately 
IS.OQO.OOO cubic yards of dredging 
and construction of a rubble sea- 
wall nearly four miles in length. 

Test borings already have been 
made by army engineers, taking 
samples of materials in order to 
make more complete data available 
to contractors planning to figure 
the Job. 



Alameda voters at a special 
election Tuesday authorized 
transfer of 929 acres of munici- 
pal tidelands to the Navy De- 
partment for development as a 
fleet air base, contingent upon 
an early expenditure of $1,000r 
000 for improvements. 

Unofficial reports state expen- 
diture of $1&,000,000 or more 
may be recommended by Navy

Nonresidential Work Increases 

Total 72% Gain In Year 

Over 1934 

Reports from principal cities to 
the r. S. Bureau of Labor Statis- 
tics indicate that the value of all 
building construction for which per- 
mits were issued in December was 
$76,000,000. a decrease of three per 
cent from the November total. How- 
ever, the December total was with- 
in fifteen percent of the peak month 
of August and was 150 percent 
greater than in December, 1934. 

The labor bureau report states: 

"The decrease during the month 
was entirely accounted for by de- 
clines in residential construction 
and in additions, alterations and re- 
p.airs to existing structures. The 
value of permits isssed for new 
nonresidential construction during 
December shows an increase of 
21.9 per cent over November. 

"Alfhough a decrease is shown 
over the month period for the coun- 
try as a whole, five geographic di- 
visions-^West North Central, South 
Atlantic. West South Central, Moun,- 
tain and the Pacific states— ^showi^ 
an increase in building construc- 
tion activity." 

The percent of change from No- 
vember to December 1935 for the 
different types of construction is
