Bailey Ingalls have opened a new office on Pleasant Hill Road, Lafayette. Naming, Our City Streets By ALBERT I. NORMAN BLAIR AVENUE, Piedmont, was named for Walter Blair, first resident of Piedmont. Although a farmer first and foremost, Blair was builder of the Piedmont carline from the 16th St. Depot to Piedmont.

He also built and owned the Centennial Hotel on the northeastern corner of 14th and Clay Streets and had a hand in building the Oakland Ave. cable car line. Blair's hayfield in what is now lower Piedmont was a favorite place for children of the neighborhood to play in the early days. 0 0 0 0 BROCKIIURST STREET, between Grove and San Pablo, one block north of 32nd, was named for a family that came to Oakland about 1852. One of the Brockhurst children lives in Alamo today, another operates a tile business in Berkeley.

A grandson is Henry Ehlers, vice president of the Crocker-Anglo Bank. I'alUd Pm laUrutlantl By JOYCE Paint is the main ingredient of practical decor for the summer abin. Use it on walls, even If they're unplastered boards, to protect them against dampness as well as to brighten them. Paint them light blue, aqua, blue-green or blue-lilac to make even tiny rooms look spacious and airy as well as cool and restful. White walls, another good choice for the summer cabin, tend to look as fresh and clean as white clothes.

Warm, sunny colors, including yellow, coral, rose and pink, also have a place, but are best confined to use as accents. It's a good idea to paint cabin furniture, too; a summer home is no place to worry about feet on chairs and couches, glasses left on tables, or waxing or polishing. Painted furniture will stay clean and shining with a swish of a dustcloth or damp sponge. New enamels make it easy to paint virtually any kind of furniture wooden, wicker, metal or wrought iron. There are special enamels for metal furniture, and aerosol spray enamels are easy to use on wicker.

Old furniture from home, attic or second-hand shops will look new with one or two coats of the improved paints available. Fabrics for the cabin should Berkeley's Maurice Read, in Salzburg Austria for the congress of the International Real Estate Federation, has offered delegates what he terms the newest answer, to the problems of U.S. urban spread. "Most of our cities have grown in a rather haphazard manner," Read told the Congress. The 'constant development of residential neighborhoods without employment on the suburban fringe places a heavy tax burden on residential property owners, he said, and contributes to traffic problems.

Read's solution to our problem: Privately developed satellite towns that can house, serve and employ residents. Such towns would be planned from the ground up as self-supporting communities with single-family homes, apartments, stores industry, schools, churches and recreational facilities. "An this means a big project," the Berkeley man concluded. "It takes lots of capital, and lots of coordinated effort by all sorts of experts, and lots of advance planning and thought The future is unlimited for the right kind of men to do the right kind of job in creating these new satellite communities Kitchen 3-DAY SALE Sund.

The den, the Insider's Newsletter solemnly reports, is "a cozy gathering place without the drawbacks of the family room it's ideal for discussion, indoor games, reading and TV watching." The theory is that American families don't want to practice togetherness in the kitchen, but are happy to do so far away from the dirty dishes. However, another rebellion is cited by a Mrs. Ida Webster, chairman of the house consulting committee of the American Institute of Architects.

It's being spearheaded by people who are utterly fed up with all this living together. "They want," declaims Mrs. Webster, a mite sourly, "to be positively separated from their children sometimes." Noteworthy and Quote-worthy: "Money is being invested in new plants and equipment," says Clinton Snyder, president of Society of Industrial Realtors, "at a rate that could replace the entire U.S. manufacturing base each 15 years and add 50 per Prica, Quality, Quantity Caaiarad!

Some of these "lost" structures were built in areas in which building permits are not required, Others were built in areas requiring building permits. In other words, somebody cheated.
