The design waa drawn by How- ard Gllkey, municipal landscape architect, following a aeries f conferences attended by the foremost lighting experts and artlnts of the Kant bay district Practicability, beauty and convenience were the main features which governed the design. - ' COIiCMSfi OF TERRA COTTA. According to the plan the standards will have a concrete octagonal base tf plain design and serviceability. Upon this base rests a graceful column' . of polychrome terra, cotta, with griffins feet at the base. At the top of this shaft is an artistic lamp with sixteen apertures, each one of which is shielded by variegated glass whieh will throw a soft and harmonious reflection upon tha water of the lake. The exact size of JJ standard Is not determined, bT'the design Is such that the height Is elastic and L' V III, In r I 1 1 Id - ' v H ti - 1 i t - A ii!f : Si i S I J, clnl; ERANS Alameda and Contra Costa Counties to Unite at ' jjora Pgrk. can be manufact amount of the requirements of neighboring lands Terra cotUi for red to meet nations and mmetry .to pe. the shaft waa the the the the unanimous selection of the committee of txperls. Gilkey de clares that this not only haa greater beauty than metal or concrete, but is immune to destruction except by vandalism. Terra cotta also obviates the necessity of resurfacing or repainting, he points -out. A bath of water is the only requirement In restoring the column's luster. LAKE TO REFLECT SHAFTS. One unusual feature of the stand-. ard is the illumination of the shaft tyi the twrsraisjatrffig the water, WmW'wlll be accomplished by lampsset in sockets imbedded in the concrete base and protected with a heavy colored plate glass, flush with the . urface of the pedestal. This will give not only, a reflection of the vase In the water but thn colored shaft as well. Commissioner Baccus, who Is 1 the originator of the "Necklace of Lights" idea, highly approves the proposal to use motts glass in several of the twenty colors in which it Is manufactured. The fact that the lake Is being more and more surrounded by sources- of white light makes It preferable that colored glass panes be used for the proper decorative value. The exact date for the meeting of the subscribers has not been definitely set. ' BANDIT'S WIFE ARRESTED. SHERMAN, Tex., April 7.
