r'r- New Package Helps Shipping Marin Terminals Corporation at the Port of Oakland's 9th Avenue Terminal has just added new equipment providing a big convenience to ship-' pers. A bagging plant with a rat-, ed capacity of 700 tons of dry bulk goods per eight-hour shift, packages materials brought to the terminal by truck or rail in plastic-lined burlap sacks. - -J The goods are dumped into aconveyor system which feeds into two holding bins.: The bags are automatically filled with specific weights and are either heat-sealed or sewn closed. Chris RedUch, president of Marine Terminals, says $4 new equipment can accommodate such commodities &s fertilizer, potash, soda ash,' urea, grains and hard-to-handle dia-tomaceous earth.

Reading believes. Ground was broken for 479 units of apartments in the 192-acre Acorn Project for West Oakland redevelopment. About half are expected to be finished this year. The adjacent Oak Center Project, which basically involves rehabilitation, is also moving. About 16 loans to homeowners have been approved. Some 35 appraisals, a preliminary t o government grants and -or loans for improvements, are finished, and 54 more applications are pending. Oak Center entails about 200 acres and 1,000 structures. Construction on the joint 75-acre Peralta College redevelopment project is to begin this year. It will provide a new college, a park tying Lake Merritt to the Estuary, rehabilitation of the surrounding business-industrial district and general revitalization of the community. In November, Oakland and Richmond were selected as two of 63 cities to benefit from the face-lifting federal model cities program. .This program, the mayor explained, aims to "change the quality of urban life in rundown areas.

Right now, We have nearly a thousand modernization and improvement projects in various stages of design, construction or break-in operation. After the expenditure of more than 1.000 man-years in laboratory, pilot plant and engineering studies, the first large-scale commercial continuous slab casting facility in the Umted States is now undergoing break-in operation at our Gary, Indiana Steel Works, This new unit transforms molten steel into high quality, 40-foot slabs in less than an hour. Conventional processing takes many hours, sometimes days. The continuous casting process is a close companion of basic oxygen steel-making, and thjee basic oxygen furnaces have replaced 17 open hearth furnaces in the Gary mill. They feed the steel to the continuous casting unit, which provides slabs for a hot strip mill (5sS) United States Steel I - 1940 Son Pablo Urg9-&ca, commercial continuous slab casting facility that can produce hot-rolled sheets in coils as wide as 76 inches and weighing 75.000 pounds. Near Houston, United States Steel's new Texas Works is taking shape Jor serving the vast and growing markets in the Southwest. The nation's most powerful electron microscope has been installed in the Pittsburgh area, and a new coW reduction mill and related facilities are also being constructed there. Two modern bar mills are going up in Ohio, and a continuous billet casting machine is scheduled for completion in Southern California in 1958. On stream is a new line for pre-painted steel sheets in Birmingham. In the Chicago-Gary area is a new mill for producing light, flexible steel foil, and a new six-stand cold reduction mill that can roll in an hour enough steel to make more than a million standard-size cans. A new basic oxygen process shop is under construction in South Chicago, where a giant blast furnace as tall as'a 20-story office i ) FROM W! l t I THOUSANDS f I tOFPAIRS gfJ 1 OF SLACKS I it 4 r ....

Another project presently in construction stage in the Chicago-Gary area is a new high speed galvanizing line. Similar lines will soon be in operation' on the East Coast and in Alabama. Our new.taconite plant in Minnesota can supply 4.5 million tons of pellets annually for use in the production of molten iron. A self -unloading ship the largest and most modern vessel on . the Great Lakes is being built to transport these pellets to United States Steel plants in the Chicago-Gary area, and elsewhere, for blast furnace consumption. - It's worth noting, too, that we an continuing to equip every new stemak-. ing faa7(ty at United States Steel with the latest available anti-pollution devices for air and water.
