"Experience has ehown that the !ian who owns hia own home is otter able to surmount and sur-ive business dlfliiculties than the Dan who has to puy rent each lionth.

' I have followed development, at Oak Knoll closely, and as a e. suit ant convinced that this is the right environment. ")n view of the rapid growth of the district it appeared desirable to me to purchase the property now, while prices are comparatively Jow. The many homes now under construction, or to be erected, prove that I am not alone in this decision. "Aside from ths financial aspect we are obtaining the very type of residence we have always wanted. The home will have a sweeping view of lower San Franoisco bay and sttWa,. baslcl es-a stretohT or nuana country, we win nave, at our door, the recreational facilr itles of a country club, all conveniently wjthln the city limits.

The fiouse will also com mand en outlook from both the front and rear. The rooms on the street side will overlook the Oak Knoll clubhouse and IK-hole golf course a well as the tiequeysh Country club and the picturesque Oak Knoll valley with its many homes neutllng on wooded slopes. The main living quarters will be located on the aide of the house farthest from the street, giving a panorama of ban Francisco bay and bay cities, "An interesting feature of the home will he the rough weathered effect achieved by sand-blasting both Interior woodwork and exterior trimmings on balcony and garage doors. The large living-room, running the full lungth of the house, will have windows overlooking the bay on one side and the valley on the other. There will be a quaint built-in bookcase and Spanish-type fireplace in the living room. French windows will leud to a rough-beamed baloony. "The dining room, breakfast room and kltuhsn will also overlook the bay. Also on the main floor will be two bedrooms and a bathroom with ample closet space. The planning of this floor is such that entry to the bedrooms, kitchen or dining room is independent of the living room. On the lower floor there will be a maid's room, bath and laundry.

Restoration of the woodlot to the American form. was proposed in a radio talk by Alexander liegge, chairman, federal farm board, as on of several good ways tq reduce the - acreage planted to surplus crops.
