E. GOULD Gould & Kane Company (This is the 18th of a series of articles tracing the development of tie "home" throughout the ages.) As early as the 12th Century, the Mayor of London established a build-tig code, ruling out wood and thatched roofs because of the danger of fire. Thus, even in those times, for the common good of the many, a law governing the building of homes was apparently needed, for always we have with us those who, through ignorance or indifference, endanger their fellow men. In "1542, BU.in undertook lo. enforce a new chapter in the building code, which read as follows: "The air must be pure and frisky and clean; the exposure should be east- 'west or northeast-southwest, but . , V.ever north and south, for the south iein0mP?VKeHalfgeHPaCe' wind doth corrupt and doth make 14 by 40 feet, to be developed as a , g " Qne wouid judge recreation room, and a play yard tvlmvhP aboye that the authorities in the rear is equipped with a slide, tne sandbox and swings, and is en- re at ' . rntptinI, tl Id W Willi H'v 1. m- v f closed by a heavy wire fence. National Housing Program Planned Development of a housing program of National scope which may be recommended by the National Association of Real Estate Boards as a constructive alternative to that of he main rooms to get to their own the lives and health of the people, For a period preceding and including the Tudor era, we find the tendency to so plan a house as to include an enclosed court. The Elizabethan neriod introduced a style with one side of the court left open, thus developing wings. We also find that more care was given to the planning of the corridor. In the past, little attention was paid to this part of the house, which often made it necessary for the servants to cross the United States Housing Author- quarters, but now new ideas of lux- ily, is to be undertaken by the association's housing committee to membership in which F. D. Cour-neen, former president of the Oakland Real Estate Board, has just been appointed. The committee is headed by Arthur W. Binns of Philadelphia, one of that city's leading realtors, who has successfully developed by private capital financing several extensive low-rent1 housing projects which serve the same social and economic objectives to which U.S.H.A. is committed, Courneen re ports. Binns explained in detail the history and scope of his operations at the recent Los Angeles convention of the National Association. As Oakland's representative on this committee, Courneen is expected' to attend its first session, to be held at Washington, probably in February. It is Composed of men keenly interested in and well-informed on the subject of housing, drawn from 20 major cities of the United States. Based largely on Binns' successful experi ence in Philadelphia, this committee will undertake to evolve a standard formula for financing and operating low-rent housing projects without Federal subsidy. ury ana comiori cauea iui m-rlpveloned corridors. Glass was still rare up to the time of Henry VIII, and in many cases glass windows were carried off as rich booty when riots occurred. Sir Thomas More in 1510 wrote, iney keep the wind out of houses with glass." From that one would glean that glass was still rare and hard to eet. As late as the 16th Century, glass did not pass to the heirs of the estate, but to the heirs of the personal property. Such were the laws in Germany at that time, too. In 1658 the King's palace in Scotland had only the upper parts of the windows of filass. the lower part being shutters for admitting air. And, always, filass was tastefully displayed, so as to make the most of it from a decorative standpoint. Furniture was now improving more toward comiori, anu uuus were beginning to outnumber benches. Rushes on the floor were replaced by rugs, while carving was profusely used on chimney pieces and balustrades, as wen as on lur- niture. About the only remnant of defense" left now, was to be found in the secret passages and retreats, in which the manor houses abounded. FRUITVALE HOME OPEN TO VIEW Si tit ''S. 1 i 'i''ZmMmxmUmmu sir In the sunny Dimond district, at 3930 Fruitvale Avenue. Just above Hopkins Street, this attractive home is open for inspection. The A. Hansen Company, builders, with offices at 2612 Hopkins Street offer this and other similar homes on FHA terms. NAMED MANAGER Fruit Tree Varieties for Home Orchard Planting Are Suggested By GEORGE C. ROEDING JR. President California Nursery Company A frequent question heard at this time of the year is "How can I select the proper fruit varieties for my home orchard?'.' A timely question, because we are now entering the season for planting fruit trees. Naturally, you will want a wiae range of fruit types, and a favorable sequence of ripening periods. An onev wav to make your se lection is to list fruits according to ripening seasons, snernes upcn, and the crop is through before other fruits start. Three excellent cherry varieties are Black Tartarian, Bing and Royal Anne, ripening in that order. If you have space for only one cherry tree, I recommend Black Tartarian because it is self -fruitful, that is. it does not require another variety planted nearby for pollin-ization. It is also a pollenizer for other' cherries and a good "must on all cherry lists. Peaches have the longest season of all fruits. They are next in order of ripening. If you are fond of yellow-fleshed freestones you can have a peach-season "opener" by planting the Fisher, a new early freestone from Canada of outstanding quality. The excellent early white-fleshed Nectar peach carries into early Summer, when the yellow freestones are ready. TYPES NAMED This group is well represented by Foster, and the improved Early Crawford. Elberta still leads all Midsummer peaches in popularity, although some people prefer Fay Elberta, ripening a few days earlier. The new Rio Oso Gem, beautifully sized and colored, is a fine choice for late Summer. Time-honored Salway gives us the last taste of peach goodness with the arrival of October. Some of our friends like to vary the peach sequence with one or two nectarines. The nectarine season parallels that of . peaches. Gold Mine or Grower to begin, Stanwick for Midsummer, and Victoria for lati Summer. There are home orchardists Who ; reserve Fall for pears and there are those who insist on apples. Pears or apples, or both, you may choose from many excellent varieties with favorable ripening sequences. For exam Die. Gravenstein, Jonathan, Red Delicious and Yellow Newtown Pippin will make any family "apple-conscious" from August until December. ' VARIETIES OF PEARS Bartlett, Beurre Hardy, Doyenne du Cornice and Winter Nelis trees will provide a succession of luscious tree-ripened pears for the same period. Include a Winter Nelis pear tree as a pollenizer when making up your pear list. Blenheim apricot fills a gap between early white-fleshed peaches and the first part of the yellow freestone M&ion. Asrlcot fans can lengthen their season by adding Moorpark and Tilton. Plums are really never out of season, because the fresh fruit may be picked from June to October, and the canned fruit enjoyed all Winter long. Try beauty as your earliest plum, and choose another variety Santa Rosa, Climax or Wickson for early Summer. Midsummer Satsuma and Kelsey are best for mid-season. Yellow egg and President are excellent late-Summer plums, delicious eaten fresh or canned. Don't overlook prunes, particularly the reliable French Improved; good fresh, dried or canned. Almonds, such as soft-shelled Nonpareil and Ne Plus Ultra, may be planted with home orchards already discussed, but walnuts and chestnuts are best treated as shade trees, set apart with plenty of room for development. H. W. Burland has been named manager of Montgomery Ward & Company's electrical appliance department in the Oakland store, succeeding Daniel Esterley, who has been transferred to the company's Salt Lake store as assistant manager. Bur-land was formerly at the c o m p a n y's Huntington Park store in the same position. N.Y. Tree Planting Plan Launched The old Hippodrome site in New York City, at Sixth Avenue and 43rd Street, is to be used as a parking lot under a permit received by the Board of Standards of that city. Of interest in this connection is the proviso that the owners of the lot are to plant trees along the street and avenue frontages so as to beautify the site and so as to minimize the objectionable and unsightly factors of a parking lot for owners of adjoining property This seems like a good idea which other cities might pick up. Most parking lots !n business districts are a good deal of an eyesore. It was front naao r,a,, i nr....
