"They're really iron or some other metal," revealed Supervisor Emanuel Razeto, chairman of the board's public works committee. " : ' ' "Most everyone has believed they were stone or concrete underneath the pain t," Razeto said. "But tap them and they ring... like a bell." 1 Razeto. who believes the liens, no matter what they are made of, should have a place of honor "for protecting our records so faithfully through the years," watched them removed from their original location Fri- day by an Oakland Park Department crew. Also present was Raymond Miller, who heads the advisory committee of the Eastbay Botanical and Zoological Society. 1 The board of supervisors last week agreed that the two statues should be entrusted to Knowland State Park in East Oakland, where they will be placed at the entrance of the zoological gardens. The brick structure they've guarded so long soon will be razed. The Welfare Department, which formerly used the antiquated building, moved recently to new quarters acrqss Broadway. Old photographs indicate the lions were an integral part of the original Victorian design, which before 1930 included two front wall plaques of lions and a dozen bearded gargoyles at the eaves. , . ; . . . .'-.- ..... : H , Holland Booming, Says Dutch Envoy 3. ..- -v. I w- y k i - rt " V M: Vvr ::j DR. JAN VAN ROUEN Netherlands ambassador Fire Safety Job to Start In 2 Schools ALBANY-A low bid of $62,765 for fire safety work at Marin and Cornell schools has been ac cepted by the Albany board of education. " The bid by Chamberlain Con struction Co. of Berkeley was referred to the architect, B. Reede Hardman, for some possible changes since,the original estimated cost of the proposed work had been set at $42,000. Superintendent Schools Kenneth Forry said the plan was to go as far as possible on the money available. A second bid received was considerably higher. . . ... The work involves sprinkler, fire alarm, electrical and heat ing alterations to bring the schools up to required emergen cy and safety regulations. The Holland tourist who expects to step off ship or plane into a land of windmills, wooden shoes and tulips, will be sorely disappointed jsays -Dr-JanH. van Roijen, Netherlands ambas sador to the United States. Van Roijen was a luncheon guest Friday of Donald Browne, vice president and treasurer of Kaiser Industries. The Dutch envoy to Washington for 13 years was the Netherlands' negotiator last year in talks which followed Indonesia's threat to seize Dutch West New Guinea by force. -ECONOMY BOOMS Actually the visitor enters a land. of booming economic development, highly industrialized and facing a labor shortage, he said. Forty-two per cent of the economy is industrial, only 12 per cent agrarian, Dr. Roijen said. Like the other Common Market countries, Holland has enjoyed rapid industrial growth since World War II, registering an increase of 30 per cent as compared with 14 per cent in the United Kingdom and 18 per cent in the United States. American capital is welcomed in Holland, the ambassador said, and many firms already are es- lauusnea mere. U.S. INVESTMENTS There has been considerable American investment in Dutch enterprises and numerous Amer ican banks have branches in that country. Dr. van Roijen said the Neth erlands' economic policy is di rected toward an Atlantic part nership which rests on the United States on the one hand, and on a United Europe on the i other. He said the Netherlands! intends to contribute to the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza tion alliance without which we long ago would have been enclosed behind the Iron Curtain."

"The youth population of Contra Costa' County is growing by leaps" and bounds,". Bray said, "which will enable the council to continue to grow in size.
