It Is estimated that It will be able to dispense food to 10,000 a day, according to Andrew C. Weisburg, nationally known hotel man, who has Secured the exclusive restaurant rights lathis new central market under a twenty-year lease. The official open- Ing' of the" nmmmott) ? tefetaurant '"Will take'place In early-September. *i Afore than 30,0001 square feet of epuee In the Mart's grand lobby wll! be utilized by the < restaurant's ~five units. There. wUJ bejmany unique fea- ffires of equipment an'd service and a roster of more than 500 employees. To take care of this vust army of eaters from all parts of the world, it will require daily 500 pounds of butter, about 3,000 pounds of meat, 3,000 pounds of potatoes, 800 dozen eggs, I fowl. In be enormous quantities of vegetables and fruits, which It is difficult to estimate. Need Huge Quantitie* of Food On one side of the great 050-foot- grand lobby will be the men's grill, ac- contniQdatlng 200 at a time; and the main dining room for men and women, to be called the Governors' room, with a capacity of 000 at a time. Opposite these will be a lunch counter about 1,000 feet long, the biggest In the world, which can care for the needs of at least 5,000 a day, and a soda fountain capable of serving 2,200 a day. These will be grouped about a huge kitchen, which, according to Mr. Weisburg, will lie the most modern In equipment and service yet put Into operation In this country. A woman's grill and tea room to accommodate 450 people will be located on the mezzanine floor. Outside of these five units, u special service for -tenants In their ofllces and display rooms will be provided that will enable them to order from any one of the five restaurants. Liveried employees will deliver the orders on electric wagons at any time of the day. The men's grill uiid the main dluln« room will be most colorful In their decorations. The equipment for nil the units will be of the most modern type, cleanliness and convenience being tbe paramount points of consideration. The metal used In the construction of the equipment will be of special silvery finish, specially rolled at the mills for tills Installation. Not a single bolt or rivet will be visible, thus Insuring a clean, even surfuce easily cleaned, for the kite-hull, all equipment, such as refrigerators, und broilers, ure to be set on buses. The refrigerators will represent the best construction that modern refrigeration engineering can produce. Temperatures will lie unto- matlciilly controlled without the aid of human hand. Employee* Specially Trained. The bakery, which will be operated by electricity, Is to be a model of ef fl< lenry iind rleuiillmtss and Is fl»mlecl with daylight through a series of large windows having" a southern exposure. The lunch counters will be built entirely of marble In a series of "U" shapes, with cold foods easily accessible from center serving cases so that within ten or fifteen minutes one may be served a complete meal and ready to leave. 'The chairs at the counters 'will "have •comfortable full backs and sufficiently far apart to prevent crowding.. The ' soda fountain will be 100 feet long and will be electrically refrigerated to 'keep the 'ice r creuma, sirups. -and other,. fdods .for " llglft lunches Iri^erfect ty-six thousand dollars*' worth of 'silver hns been purchased so tliat the patron at the lunch counter will" have the same service to this regard as In the grills, or main dining room, For the men's grill and' the main dining room, men waiters will be used, but in all the other units the feminine hand jvill care for the patrons. Henry G. Gordon, general manager, who is famed us a kindly but firm disciplinarian, said that one of the first features to be established will be a school for employees. This school will be different from the average business school. Air. Gordon not only wants through this means to improve the service of the restaurants, but he also seeks to Improve the employees. He teaches thrift and building character. The Ideas of the employees as to how the restaurants should be run are welcomed. l Tour* World for Idea* Mr. Weisburg, who also owns the Hotel Oliver at South Bend, Ind., and the new Harrison being constructed In Chicago, recently made a tour of the world in quest of new Ideas for the Merchandise Mart restaurant. For Instance, the merchant arriving at the Mart goes directly to the special accommodation desk In tl.n restaurant, leaves his hand baggage, Is assigned bis room, and Is free to proceed about his business. His day's task completed, he then goes to the Harrison hotel, Chicago's newest popular priced hostelry with rates at $2.50 and $3.00 for room with bath and circulating Ice wuter, to find Ills baggage In his room and the room Itself ready for his -use. It bus been estimated that this novel arrangement will save the at least one hour's time in addition to taxi expense. One of the world's most famous chefs, Pierre J. Berard, employed at ii solury of $10,000 a year, will supervise the menus in this restuuruut. I'lerre Is a student mid psychologist, who started In life as u sculptor and architect, but who found cooking his forte, lie Is not only un artist In food chemistry but In Hue und color as well. lie is skilled In fashioning graceful forms as well us in seasoning und flavoring.

S. The Mart itself, which houses more than six hundred of the outstanding manufacturers, wholesalers and Importers, is destined to become the new buying capital of tlie United States, If not the world. The purpose of tbe Mart Is to bring a great community of mercantile leaders to present the latest Ideas, patterns, styles, designs and -colors in merchandise, developed by the world's foremost manufacturers. More than SB per cent of the 4,000,000 square feet of display space has been leased and buyers from all parts of the. country are beginning to come to this new central market. "The Mart embodies the modern Ideas of a concentrated market, of bringing the buyer to market Instead of attempting by means of sample cases, traveling salesmen and trunks to inadequately take the market to the merchant," said Claude A. Welles, general manager of the Mart, "The arrangement of the display floors has been scientifically worked out with tlie object of conserving the buyer's time and energy to the utmost, providing every necessary aid to expedite his examination of goods and for his convenience while In the market. 27 Mile* of Corridor* "The buyer can enter the Mart in the morning, attend to all bis business and personal affairs during the day, and do practically all bis buying without leaving tlie shelter of ore roof until bedtime. This is a Department Store for Stores— u concentration of related lines under qne roof. It will effect a revolution In distribution, will reduce the time accessary for the mere-hunt's buying and correspondingly In crease his time for selling." Kach of tbe eighteen display floors bus sales corridors 050 feet long, n display space of around five acres veritable business boulevards.
