Oakland has the solution of the difficulties of the film direc tor, who tears his-hair and gnashes his teeth for something really new For an Oakland man is ready to produce for film reproduction not only animals of the present and fauna of the prehistoric past but monsters that never were and couldn't be outside of a welsh rarebit nightmare or a frolicsome imagination. Making animals for the screen, with such fidelity to detail that a lion, for instance, might take a film lion for his own twin brother, is the regular business of . T. Stenberg, who did much of the preliminary"-work on the dummy animals which featured a recenVjno-tion picture success. FI LiIj OF DIFFICITTIKK. "Just lMve everything else, t looks easy when you see the comV pleted animal," said Stanberg. "BuK there are obstacles to be overcome' at every Uirn. The prehistoric dinosaur pterodactyi and other animals seen in the photo film represent six years of labor, by ,AVill O'Brien and myself." As he spoke he twisted the pliable doint of a miniature chimpanzee that was lying on his work table in his East Oakland studio. The' studio, incidentally, has a rare collection of grotesque specimens, realistic save for the breath of life. The inanimate applicants to film fame must be made to duplicate every possible position of the living animal, suggested the bony structure as well as supple joints in their slightest move; The reproduction of the hide, hair or feathers, as the' case may be, is a labor requiring infinite patience as well as ingen uity.

Tho-tate Railroad Commission has approved the sale of the Alameda Belt Line railroad to- a holding company for $30,000 and has authorized the issuance of $300,000 in stock and bonds to finance extension of the line to serve the fast-growing industrial areas. The Santa Fe and Western Pacific were authorized to acquire the stock. The commission's action' was hailed by city officials as the most im-portanT step in the industrial development of this city's $50,-000.000 waterfront and harbor. WILIi EXTEND SYSTEM. The purpose of the stock issue is to acquire holdings of the city bejt line rairroad and to care for the expansion program. This includes the immediate extension of the belt line from Grand to Webster street and erection of terminals on the estuary, which, it is claimed, will be second in size only to those of New York City. A 100-foot wide industrial highway paralleling the waterfront from Webster street to the proposed Alameda naval base site, widening of the Alameda approach of the estuary tuhe, subdivision and industrial development of 400 acres of University of California property fronting on the estuary and reclamation of the western tidelanda are expected to result. PRIORITY DENIED. The decision comes after a fight in which the Southern Pacific company tried to block the belt line projects on the grounds that it would infringe upon their priority rights in the territory. The belt line, as now organized, is controlled by five directors, two appointed each by the Western Pacific and Santa Fe and a fifth member representing the city. -Any railroad may at any time become a member of the pool upon payment of its pro-rata share of the purchase price of $30,000, pls the cost of improvement's. The city reserves the right to re-purehase the. belt line upon a year's notice. Briefs were to be filed today with the Interstate Commerce "commission, which body must fix the raties to be charged for interstate shipments over the belt line. ' Immediate start of work on the belt line extension was predicted by City Manager C. E. Hickok. More White Elephants, day's Classified Section.

Otherwise you might have died years before you were old enough to have heart disease. .These are, the conclusions drawn from the increase In the heart disease " mortality tables computed from records in the I'nitod States, according to Dr. John N. Force, professor of "epidemiology and chairman of the department of hygiene. University of California. MOK.TAMTV HIGH AFTER, 60. A series of tables just issued by a life insurance company shows that whereas' there was a slight decrease in heart disease, deaths in the .thirties and early forties for both men and women' between 1910 and 1S2L', there was a marked increase in mortality from the age of 00 years on.

UP) More than a score of new cases of infantile' paralysis, reported from various parts of the state tSls month bring the, total since Janu ary 1 to around the 200 mark, with the state ,. department of public health making every effort to stay the spread of the disease. - (stress is placed on the need of preventive measures at once, the state health officers having in mind the danger of an even more serious outbreak in the early fall months, as commonly occurs when the disease is unusually prevalent in the early summer. The following rules are given out by the department as a means to avoid the spread of the disease: "Keep your children off the streets. H "Do not let them ilay with any child or adult who is. not entirely well. "Keep sick persons who do not belong to your family out ofyour house. "Make sure that hands are thoroughly washed before eating." "If a child or adult in your family appears to be sick or complains' of not feeling well, immediately separate that person from the rest of the family and allow no visft-ors to enter the house. "After. waiting on the sick, person be sure to wash your hands immediately. t I "Collect nose and throat discharges in paper napkins or small pieces of cloth and burn immediately." Quality a month Clay and Jefferson Street PIUS CASES TOTAL 200 BIB Interpret that change as a sad commentary on me increasing ion of a Jazz age, as proof positive that cardiac machinery simply can't stand the strain to which it Is put. PEOPLE LIVING LONGER. "The higher death rate from heart disease, means, that more people are living to an age whero they are likely to get heart disease," said Dr. Force. "People are living longer than formerly. Many of these people who d'ef heart disease after 35 would not have survived Jong enough to die from that cause in former times. "Another reason for the change is that diagnosis is getting more exact. In New York, for instance, they found a big increase in the deaths from heart disease was due to the tendency to diagnose as heart trouble a good many cases formerly held to be Bright's disease. Dr. Force does not think the jazz age is wearing people out faster, but on the contrary, points to the increased expectancy of life because of better knowledge of health matters and generally im-' proved hygiene. A comproYnise of 50 cents a day increase, instead of the $1 increase asked by workers of the Albers Brothers' Milling company, who walked out yesterday when their demand was refused, was announced today by.
