"Evsry survey made shows that Oakland and the Eastbay is stepping ahead In building construction than any other Pacific coast City. There is every indication that this progress will continue. And home building Is a neces sary adjunct to community development. Industrial and commercial development go hand In hand with hovne ownership. Twenty-five thousand newcomers a year eome into Oakland and must find homes. "It is this tremendous Influx of newcomers that has brought about such a big volume of home building.

In the greatest state-wide drive ever recorded the California Real Estate Association's membership week from March T to IB this coming week is stirring every realty board to activity to gain a goal of 6000 realtors in the ranks of local, state and national organi zation. Florida challenged California in January as a leader and President Harry H. Culver, city builder, who was drafted to lead the California association, accepted the gauntlet and started out after members. The response has been electrifying. More than 25 per cent of the total sought has already been obtained In preliminary work. Every board city from Redding and Eureka on the north to San Diego and El Centro on the south are actively campaigning for banners and other awards, which include a free trip to the Tulsa convention in June of the National Association of Real Estate Boards; two free trips to the Del Monte state convention in October, Block by block Melrose High lands is being rapidly transformed from a vacant little valley to a solidly settled community, according to reports of sales and construction activities issued (1by C.
