N RESUM v Industrial and Civic Develop. pent Plans of Future Without Precedent. PITTSBURG, July 10. This city '. of 10,000 people' Is in the midst of general expansion in every dlrec tlon industrially, commercially, financially. An era of activity has descended which has brought with It excellent living and working conditions, Pittsburg residents point to these outstanding developments: Work on the new $225,000 high school building was started two weeks ago. The structure will be ready for occupancy by September. The city trustees, have approved ,the expenditure of approximately 175,000 for street widening and improvement work, ''.'. The Colombia Steely CorpoVatlon one of the city's largest industries, Is 'carrying out a $20,000 expansion program, and further improvements are contemplated. A canal one and a' half miles long Is being built to drain swamp lanVU K t near the waterfront to rid the com-., . munity of the mosquito -pest. Bids for construction, of a new postoffice building on East Fourth street at. a cost of about $25,00(1 have been requested. funds are pouring in for the erection of a $50,000 Catholio x church, to be known as St. Peter's. A gain In circulation of more ' than 10,000 books was made by the Pittsburg public library during the fiscal year ending June 30.. The new city pumping plant, supplying water at higher presr, sure- and using less horsepower than, at any time in the past, is now 'in operation. - Approximately 85 carloads of fish, equivalent to 3,000,000 pounds, were shipped the past year by local wholesalers to eastern des-" tinations. EXPANSION St'MMEb The Industrial Finance company last ' week increased Its capital Mock from '$25,000 ..to $75,000, to better accomniodatresidents seeking loans for homes and other purposes. . Perhaps the best summary in terms of population Increase that these facts yield was expressed by N. A. Becker, general superintendent of the Columbia Steel corporation, in an address last week to the chamber of commerce directors. "The rate of expansion at which Pittsburg Industries have proceeded in the past, if continued as heretofore, will mean a Pittsburg 'of 20,000-p o p u 1 a 1 1 o n within five years," Becker said. The new high school building is rising on a twenty-acre tract south of the Southern Pacific right-of-way. It will contain 20 classrooms with every modern educational facility. J. F. Hannah of San Fran- ' cisco has contracted for this work. STREET PROGRAM Hutchinson & eompanj1' Oakland contractors, have over a hundred men at work carrying out the city's street program, which contemplates widening and improvement oi near ly a seore of thtoroughfares at a cost of about $75,000. The new .home tract comprises 61 lots in a strip of land 100 feet wide, running from the waterfront to West Ninth street. This tract is 1 expected to be made a part of the ' city within two weeks, when' its development will go forward, ' Rev. Father E. G. McMullen, rec tor of St. Peter's Catholic church, is in charge of the drive for funds 1 to be used in erection of a new $50,000 edifice at Bight and Black .Diamond streets adjoining the pres ent church. The financial cam- . paign is expected to gain full mo-riientum within a very short time. Private capital is being expended t in the erection of a new 'post-office on East Fourth street, next to the .'...Western Union office, at a cost of about $25,000. The expansion of the Columbia Steel corporation is to cost $200,-000, providing do.ublo the open- nearth capacity of the existing fac tories and Increasing the output in ail departments by the addition of 40 to 50 men on the payroll. Other industries at Pittsburg are also in the grip of expansion plans. At the . ureat Western Electro Chemical company and the 1'io neer Rubber Mills, these plans are - reported to have assumed a defi nite outline of activity. LIBRARY GAINS In another direction,, the Pitts burg library's gain of 10,000 circu latlon during the past year is pointed out as an indication of the cultural and , home-loving qualifies of the residents. The circulation Increase, It is believed, will show the Pittsburg library to be second among all branches in the county In patronage, being led only by the Martinez main library.' r- 1 . l . O. O.

' Lead Used for Cancer Cure Proves Efficatious at Woodland Clime WOODLAND, JW 16. HurrSble lead, basest of metals, is being used at the Woodland clinic here in . the fight against humanity's most dreaded disease, cancer. WhiTe the treatment was first Snnnunced to the medical world In 1921 by Dr. Blair Bell, an Edinburgh physician, it had not ben put to practical use until less tn. a year ago, and was not introduced intoGalil'ornia hospitals until this spring. The Woodland clinic is one of four' hospitals in the state that has the facilities necessary for Its administration. The treatment is an essential departure from former efforts along this direction; according to local medicos. Briefly, it consists of a collodial solution of'Iead injected intervenously in conjunction, "with standard cancer treatments suc.h as x-rays, radium and surgery.

Yolo grain growers are having their best season in five years, according to N. G. Merritt, president of the Bank of Yolo. r Consistently high prices, together with crops of unusually excellent quality, are the reasons set forth by Merritt for the prosperous con dition of the grain trade. "In other agricultural lines," tho banker declared, "the season Is up to par. It ia a little too early to prophesy regarding fruits, but indications are that raisers will have normal crops and will be able to dispose of them at fair prices. "Truck gardtn acreage has not increased since last year, when many ranchers of thig district began to plant lots of smalt stuff. Lettuce growers were rewarded handsomely in the spring crop this year, but lost out last fall. "Truck gardening here is still In the experimental stage. I doubt whether large acreages here will ever be devoted to it, because of the perishable nature of the products,"! Wheat acreage, said Merritt, has increased this year at the expense of barley. ': SACRAMENTO, July Iff.

Silver Expert From , Shanghai Is Banned By REGINALD SWEETLAND (Special Cable to The Oakland TRIBUNE and tho Chicago Daily New.) SHANGHAI, July 16.- Silver exportation from Shanghai is prohibited on Instructions igiven customs inspectors against issuance of permits to foreign or Chinese firms. r. The orders, which came from .the Nanking government, were a' surprise, though in keeping with General Chiang Kai-Shek's efforts to maintain silver currency' while doing his utmost to false a sixty million dollar loan (about $30,000,000 in American money) for administration and war expenses. '-' The prohibition is likely to have a disastrous effect on trade with the interior, making Shanghai's business conditions similar to Hankow's. 'Clipyright.. l?m, the Chicago Daily News.) i Fingerprints f Transmitted ThroughRadio New Weapon Against Crime. Is Found in Broadcasting Field. LONDON, July 16. A device for the transmission by wireless of finger prints hand writing and fashion plates Is beiirfe' perfected in the laboratory at Chetmford by G. M . ' Wright of the Marconi com. pany. This Invention, If successful, will, result In one of the great-, est revolutions In wireless telegraphy of the century. Up to the present time such messages have been transmitted-over only a distance of a few miles and the inventor is now hoping to extend "this distance until the system becomes as extended as , the radio. The developments which would be made possible by the success of this invention are amazing. - An open letter or a postcard could re transmitted by wireless and received in the exact handwriting of the sender. A man in an airplane during an operation would be able to make notes or sketches of enemy activity and they would be transmitted automatically to headquarters -without his having to tap out Morse message's or1 speak by1 telephone. It would make the Morse code obsolete in many important branches. The'finger prihts of a suspected person arrested in same' distant city would.no sooner be taken by police officials than they would be verified -by the police of another city, perhaps of another continent. The latest fashion piaiea of Paris could be sent in this manner to New York. And since pictures could be transmitted in the same way, it would mean that the, telegraphic news pages of the newspapers would be graphically Illustrated with telegraphic pictures. Wireless pictures are already oossible, of course, but the new system through its speed and clarity promises to supersede all others. The invention would also result in remarkable changes in newspaper production. Tests that have been carried, out .show that in the simplest ways each page can be flashed from one office to another. Thift'; indicates that the time is not far distant when the copy of a New York paper could be flashed across the Atlantic to Paris for its European edition. It is "expected that at least several more months will be necessary ( before the scheme Is perfected for use. . . ... UMILLIONS IN PROJECTS Real Estate Activity Taken as Diablo Valley Development.
