8 EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO HEALTH IS BASIS OF CURRICULUM ; Sickly" Pupils to Take their c t Instruction in New Venti? . lated Building OAKLAND. Aug. -K— -The -first : open '.air' school to be established west- of the, Rocky mountains .wijl be. opened this week by the city of- Oakland at -Fruit Vale school No-. 2.

To school authorities, Medical Director Dr. N. K. Foster" and ., Superintendent McClytnotids the. structure is, the first of a series which will before long be com\u25a0. raon through the city. " . -,-.'. The Oakland school: is a pioneer on the- Pacific coast In Chicago, where the open-air school has reached its highest ' plane, all the large public schools are fitted with quarters for such pupils as are anaemic,. Imperfectly nourished or display a' tendency to tur bercuiosis. An agitation: before the local school directors for similar buildlnsrs here was. strengthened, by the last report from . Doctor Foster, who; as medical director had: examined nearly every -child in the public schools. That official found a considerable percentage of the pupils, suffering from adenoids, enlarged tonsils, malnutrition and anaemia. He went at once to the support of the open alr.6Chool advocates, and the building in Fr.uitvale is the result- ' ;:,-:.-^; :,-:.-^ ; .\u25a0*.-.- ."..- \u25a0. '.' Mrs. Lulu G» Beeler, a teacher with 13 years' experience, was; assigned to the open air department of the Fruitvale school No. 2. She. was chosen because she was qualified to. instruct pupils in any of the eight grades, and to her will be sent for tuition whatever pupils the health division of the school selects or whatever pupils are desired by their parents to be open air scholars. . • . \u25a0•\u25a0'•.•• -\ \u25a0 \u25a0 • \u25a0\u25a0• .'\u25a0 The classes at the .first open air school will he made up. : mainly of pupils from the surrounding: grammar schools.

Those Inspectors assigned to schools In the annexed district will report to the health director whatever cases of malnutrition or of tubercular tendency tiiey ; find." ~" Doctor Foster will then act. arid : it is certain that the majority of these pupils will bt- transferred to Mrs. Heeler's classes. ffhe will organize grades f«r her ptfpilf=. ranging through the primary and grammar to the last year classes of the common schools.

This is presaged in requests which Superintendent McClymonds has received from many families that their children be sent to the new classes. It- Is more than likely that, the building provided will not be adequate to t»'p needs. .-~. -~ v The first open air school, and the similar schools that will follow, will be"; conducted under the usual school system. Principal. Spencer of. Fruitvale No. 2 will direct Miss Beeler's classes. Assitsant Superintendent of Schools .Cox,, in charge of the annexed district, will have supervision. The, new open air school .is built to be always ventilated. /The front, or east side, is wide open, 'with a screen to form an Inclosure. The west and south are closed tight against wind and fog. •;-. The «ast side and . south have shutters at the top. so that air is always passing througli the room. On the east are six broad windows, any one or. all of which may be removed, to make the room open on two sides or open on one and partly closed on the second. In case oi. storms awnings { may' he drawn to protect the pupils. For., cold weather artificial heating is /provided. =>>-;\. UNITARIAN CLUB WILL RESUME ITS MEETINGS M. J.

Building Department Installed. .. '\u25a0,:\u25a0 The Realty Syndicate Is meeting with great success in.a sale of scattering Piedmont lots. In 1903 Piedmont \u25a0was 'sold off in various tracts by 'the Syndicate, at which time two or three hundred lots-were, lost track of in var.lous ways,. and, after a rush that followed; these -Jots .were found to be In possession of . the Syndicate. With other matters to command its. attention,, nothing was done in an effort to dispose of -them until about thirty days ago, when the Syndicate placed prices upon .them that have caused somewhat of a sensation in 'the* Real Estate Market. '.• "Any one who has ah idea that the real estate market in Oakland is dull would do well to visit our ofiices and look over the records of our . sales," said Nat M.. Crossley, manager of the Real Estate Department of The Realty- Syndicate. '."We have been selling these Piedmont lots at the rate of two or three a day" ever since we*, .announced the prices, and at the present time see no indications of a letup; in fact,., we are getting " more inquiries this week tlran ever, and our' records show that during the last 30 days we have' sold approximately $50,000.00 worth of. this property. These figures include several houses which the -lot purchasers have, contracted for through our HOme Building Department." * Mr. Crossley explained that the Home Building Department of The Realty Syndicate had arranged matters /so that for approximately $1,000 and $50 per month a- lot could be purchased in Piedmont, and a' $3,500 house erected upon it whicji would be built In accordance with' the Idea's :of the purchaser, lie stated that the Building ; Department would ultimately be a very important factor in the affairs of The Realty Syndicate, and that at the present time they ' wero doing particularly fine work on exceedingly easy t^rms in order to set about 100 contracts for houses which can be immediately erected and shown as examples of the Syndicate's workmanship in the future. "Our Bnildins Department will undoubtedly be,a great success," continued Mr..-Crossley, "because we are conducting* it upon absolutely newlines. Heretofore installment building concerns have almost invariably figured upon the cheapest possible .construction with the result that after a period of. four or five years their houses began to go to pieces. This fact did not seem, to bother them, for they could easily start operations in another neighborhood under a different name and do the same thing over again. Th*.- Realty Syndicate, however, 1* in an entirely different position, and has a great deal at stake; in fact, we .figure, that in 13 or 20 years we will be doing .an enormous amount of home building, and must consequently be,very careful in all of our dealings at all times. Contractors who have seen our houses claim that we are going to the extreme in this regard and that many economies could be practiced which would bring us greater profits. We differ from. them, however. In this regard, as we figure that one satisfied homo builder will bring- us an average of twoi other builders, and out of the three we will make more profit than any unscrupulous contractor could possibly make* by carrying out all of his shrewdly hidden economics." .„ A great many people are taklnsr advantage of this building department and several Uouses have already been, completed, although the department has been organized only a few months. The Realty Syndicate's ofiices are at 121S Broadway, Oakland. Marriage Licenses OAKLAND, Anf. J.— Tte followlne tntrrttg*' licences were issned today: Harry Donjrbert.v.
