"This service has been introduced," states Raymond Emge. sales manager for the Realty Syndicate Company, "to assist motor-lets enjoying a few hours' outing in finding locations of historical and scenle Interest well as to assist them in choosing the best and most scenic routes. ROADS CONFUSE. "The hundreds of new roads that have been constructed In the new home districts in the Piedmont hills are often confusing a motorists who have a definite destine, tion or are merely enjoying the many beautiful drives through this eertion. "By stopping and innuiring at the Smith Reserve tract office they are accurately directed to their destination and given a complete map of this entire district. Including all of the Skyline boulevard as far as the Claremont tunnel, Sequoyah Park, Joaquin Miller's home. Redwood peak, and Smith Reserve, as well as the shortest routes to various parts of the East Bay. The manner in which this service has been accepted by the motoring public has proven that it fills a long felt want and renders an appreciated service. "Few people know that the view from Skyline boulevard where it cuts through the upper part of Smith Reserve is generally conceded by travelers as one of the three most beautiful marine views in the world, rrom several points along this boulevard, a well as from many locations In gmlth Re. serve, one may look down upon over seven counties spread about the hay. GRAND PANORAMA. "The great East Bay from Hay- ward to Richmond offers an Inspiring panorama of over 60 miles in width. The large buildings of San Francisco stand out with startling clearness, and contrast mightily with the blue of Mr. Tamalpais and the Marin hills, sloping gently down to the Golden Gate. "FVr to the south stretches the rich Santa Clara Valley, and to the north Mt Diablo rears its head above the green valleys and tiny towns of Contra Costa County. And every hour of the day finds this vast panorama changing in color and beauty from the first flush of early sunrise to the golden-red of sunset and the soft purple of twilight, with thousands of lights twinkling in the cities below as night falls. "It is little wonder that this has been proclaimed one of the three most beautiful marine views in the Wyrld. Nor is it any wonder that such poets and authors as Joaquin Miller, George Sterling, Jack London and Herman Whltaker made their homes in these hills. And the forethought of man has reserved Smith Reserve as a home park in the midst of this gorgeous setting." Pair of Buildings to Be Built on Scott St. Sub-bids are being taken in connection with the construction of two three-story and basement frame and stucco apartment build ings to contain thirty-six two, three and five room apartments, elevators, electric refrigeration, dish. washers, tile baths, etc. They are to be erected on the northwest cor ner of Scott and Jefferson streets to cost $1!5,000.
