MrB.P.D.Aaiki: "I have piece of driftwood which I picked op on the beach last summer. It looks like an abstract painter's idea of a fawn and I would like to use somewhere in my house, but how?" Driftwood pieces have become so popular they are even on the market today. They are used as wall ornaments, on the floor under a window, over a fireplace, as lamp bases. I even know someone who uses one as a decorative newel post at the foot of the stairs. The shape dictates how the pieces should be used.

Galindo, himself, lived on Telegraph Avenue. His home is now the site of the Marshall Steel Company. Galindo Street runs from Sausal Creek to Paxton Avenue. 000 Four Oakland streets owe their names to the daughters of an Oakland real estate man, George Washington Dam, of the firm of Gladding and Dam. The streets run parallel in West Oakland, near what is now the Army base.

They are Hannah, Louise, Ettie and Helen. Dam was a neighbor of William Watts, after whom the Watts Tract was named. 0 0 0 Julia Street (today called Madison Street) was named for Julia Adams, daughter of Edson, one of Oakland's founders. Trust Deeds during Its Saa Francisco session: 'During 'tight periods, such as- at present, lenders an more selective and loan to value ratios are somewhat less than the maximum legal limits. "Assuming the average loan to value ratio to be 70 per cent, the purchaser would be re- 3uired to make a 30 per cent own payment Few people are able to generate sufficient savings to comply with this requirement "People generally have a strong motivation for home ownership.

Consequently, when these conditions prevail, borrowers are inclined to move towards second trust deed financing rather than to postpone purchase. "Here, then, is the climate in which' the flagrant use of second trust deeds thrive, brought about by a defect in the primary financing." bers of the Oakland Real Estate Board, hold that four requirements are essential if a small business is to prosper. 1 Good location. 2 Good location. 3 Good location.

4 The owner must hire an accountant. Islands in a grocery store, they say, should be vertical that is, parallel to the checkout stands. (Clerks can glance down them. This controls pilferage.) But tables in a variety store should be at right angles. (This is an "impulse" business.

You want customers to wander around, getting that impulse to buy.) Cafeteria tables should start with the dessert, and the entree should be last. (By the time the patron reaches the entrees, his tray is loaded. He thinks he'll look cheap if he doesn't take a main dish.) Grocery stores should have split doors. (Easier for laden patrons to push in and out.) They should have large picture-windows. (Groceries with fee table only be used in a large This la the age of "mixing."

July 3, I960 ly DOROTHY DRAPER I'm all for the people who re taking smaller houses so that they can get more fun out of life. Summer is the time to.

get out of doors, the time to cut your housekeeping chores down to a minimum, the time to take advantage of all the plastic wonders of the the time to use paper plates on the terrace, the time of summer rugs, the time to clear out the clutter of winter and pour out the iced punch. Summer colors are as flamboyant as summer Itself. Camping equipment has shed the old khaki for scarlet, yellow and a summer-sky blue. Sailboats careen across the harbors with sails of red and white stripes, brilliant blues and Mandarin yellow. Tents come with gaudy circus stripe flaps.

are what are known as "business opportunity specialists." They act as brokers in the buying and gelling of businesses. There are about-10 such brokers active in the Eastbay. All are men of encyclopedic knowledge of the ways of business. Viz: Why should the pumps at a service station be canopied? (Because, when it a i motorists sympathize with the attendant If he has to stand in the rain to pump gas, patrons may drive to another station.) What type of man will Usually make a big success of 4 variety store? (An accountant. He has a meticulous wind.

Handling 5,000 items appeals to him.) What type of business is easiest to sell? (A small distributorship and wholesale business. Every salesman dreams of owning one.) What business is hardest to tell? (Garages and bakeries.) Those who have earned their California Business Opportunity Broker's license are men with formidable memories and a vast knowledge of the intricacies of merchandising. They must be equipped to appraise and evaluate businesses, advertise and sell, must have a knowledge of a dozen specialized fields, must know the equipment used in these fields, must know legal requirements. In addition, they must protect both the buyer and. the seller, and must have that prime virtue of the clam: Everything they hear must remain confidential.

The Oakland trio, all mem- Small Plants Solve Space Problems Space is often a factor In gardening. Therefore, according to the California Association of Nurserymen, shrubs that show restraint are cf particular value. It is possible to plant a miniature shrub in an area one-tenth as large as that required for the normal-sized variety. For a neat, slow-growing shrub, evergreen raphiolepis has attained wide popularity. It is a perfect foundation plant.

Because of its slow growth habit, raphiolepis remains low and needs no pruning for many years. The introduction of the Pink India Hawthorn variety in 1938 started raphiolepis on its climb to fame. Light pink flowers in high-crowned clusters cover half of the bronze-toned foliage from the first part of the year through spring. There is a scattering of bloom throughout the rest of the year. The flowers are followed by clusters of blue-black fruits.

Raphiolepis should be selected for the area in which they are to be planted. Some grow naturally flat, others are more upright. Dwarf gardenia is a diminutive form of its "big brother" but with all of the beauty and fragrance of the bigger sorts. The small blooms are profuse in summer. Dwarf gardenia is tub-adaptable and can be used also for foreground planting in the sun where the miniature flowers may- be fully appreciated.

There are a number of low-growing coniferous evergreens both in prostrate and upright forms. Among the yews, firs, arborvitae, spruces, pines and junipers are many varieties which show restraint. For under a window, tubs, small lots, or to enhance a view there is a -coniferous evergreen which will fit the requirements for modest height HAROLD'S GARDEN 4th of JULY SALE!
