Lorentz in Oak Knoll is one of, the many fine homes which have recently been fold in this exclusive country club community. TRACT One of the imposing entrance gates that will mark the entrance to Encinas de Moraga, the new and exclusive estate subdivision just placed on the market by A. H. Breed & Sons Inc. j TED1UT . .. SUNDAY ' IMG UNY HOMES BEING BOUGHT wm IT Accessibility, good climate, paved roads, unspoiled natural surroundings and assurance of good neighbors, are all features In favor of Enctnas de Moraga', the new estate tract Just opened on the Moraga highway. A.' H. Breed and Sons, line, maicaie. , f The fact that the new tract, 1 Which offers rural estates for nvcuiy-ini ee owners, is wiinin a few minutes drive ot Oakland and Berkeley over the Tunnel highway cr the Fish Ranch road is perhaps one or ine strongest arguments in Its favor; it was said vesterdav. It is situated on the Moraga highway near the Junction of the Orinda, Tunnel and Moraga highways, and Is the first of the 10,000 acres in the old Moraga ranch to be placed on the market. An announcement reads: "Construction of the entrance cates, and other development work, is going rapidly forward. Roads have been built through the prop- erty. Arrangements are completed fofturning over a five acre park tract to the dwners by the estate owners. Each owner will have from one to three acres in his own private estate, with the park as an added feature. "Growing on the estate are many varieties of California trees and shrubs, including white oak, black oak, live oak, buckeye, laurel, bay, maple, willow, wild blackberry and wild rose. The property is to be developed without damaging the natural growth, leaving the building sites in as near their original condition as possible for improvement and development by . the wners. "Definite building restrictions 17111 assure all owners of good Neighbors. There will be restrictions nm to placement and design and all elans will have, to be submitted before contracts are let. The improvements in the tract will include hard urfaced roads, a water system ahd electricity. "Large numbers of interested men and, women are inspecting the property every Sunday afternoon," Chemists Make - Wool From Slag Chemists with their wizardry liavs once more achieved the seemingly impossible. They have taken waste slag, by-product of lead refineries, for which no use has ever Ijtem found before, and have made wool of it! This wool, soft fluffy, light, will not bum or melt at less than 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. Scientists who have experimented jTwtth it call it one of the best Insulating materials ever discovered, It is stated. The only plant in the world manufacturing, it so far on a commercial scale is in Alton, 111., where It is being operated in connection with the- giant refinery ot me American Hmeltlng and Refining Company. Here millions of tons of raw materials have been piling up for many years. Other Viilllons of ton can be found near zlno and - lead refineries in otherelttes throughout the United States. ' Approximately 60 tons of this material is now being turned out dally in Alton and very soon this output will be Increased. The product Is being sold under the trade name of Therm-O-Proof. It will be marketed n four forms as loose wool, the blanket form, In boards and bricks. 1 Principal uses are In building .Insulation, high and low temperature insulation, sound deadening or acoustics and flreprooflng. The company is specializing for the present in the insulation of homes already built, usually with inadequate insulation. The Therm-O-Proof Insulation 7 Co. of Chicago, has worked out a blower device which operates on a truck and with this the mineral wool Is blown Into side wall . spaces and between attic Joists giving up to in many cases four Inches of insulation.

"The living 'room, beautifully beamed with hand-decorated ceiling, has light from three sides, while the' entire upstairs Is so designed as to admit sunlight throughout the day. , "One of the 'most unusual features of this artistic home le the effect of, remoteness from the street given by the landscaping. No driveway mars the front or sides of the lot, since the garage is entered from a rear street.
