This firm contemplates the completion of a model home on Sunday, May 2nd, and the general public and those interested in home building are In vited to look this property over. bpeaklng on the activities or his firm, John Chapman said "The prevalent practice among con struction organizations is to sublet. Immediately upon the award of a contract, all such details as cement foundations, plastering, outside stuccoing, roofing, and the like, to various cubcontractors specializing In those fields; reserving the es sential building only, and of course supervision of the subcontractors work. But, while It costs us more to "go It alone,' In that It cuts down our profits somewhat on any specific job In the long run we win far more In good will and reputa tion." L. A.

Several weeks of planning by the local as-incin.es of Carroll L. Post, presi dent and founder, and former pres-Ac.nt r.f the. Postum Cereal Com pany, have started actual work on the grounds, and the grading of streets for the first groui) oi mou-ern "model" homes, an preliminary work on the homes and the Oak Knoll Country Club are already under way, it is stated. Because of previously published plans of the company for development nf Oak Knoll, scores of peo ple have already visited the grounds and, according to Roy G. I'hebus, an associate of Post, several unsolicited reservations have been made for properties in the first units, which will.be near the Country Club building. : "Oak Knoll promises to be one of the most active developments ever undertaken in the bay district," I'hebus declared. "It has all the climatic advantages of the Eastbay district, and the contour of its roll- ng hills is almost the perfect in ducement for a homeseeker to build. It is within twenty-five minutes easy driving from the actual center of Oakland, and is accessible over several roads. "Plans we have under way for actually developing the land take in everything the buyer is Interested in. The golf course, with its beautiful fairways and greens, with the beautiful clubhouse in the foreground, will be overlooked by charming homes in this setting, making a perfect "front yard" for those homes. "We will have under way in a short time actual construction of twenty model homes, with street work already under way. One of the appealing features of our plans is to have as little obstruction, such as wires, poles, etc., above ground as possible- it is our plan to put all of this Work, save ornamental electroliers, under ground. "Every step taken at Oak Knoll will be under the guidance of an' art commission and necessary restrictions, we believe, will do much to carry out our Ideas of making Oak Knoll 'Oakland's finest home development.' "There is already wide interest In both the Oak Knoll Country Club' anil the home properties. News of our plans for the golf and country club features are becoming broadcast among golfers and sports enthusiasts generally, and all who have seen our plans declare that the country club Itself will be one of the most artistic and distinctive in the Btate of California." Last year the power plants of this country saved two million tons of coal by applying new Ideas in economy. This is the sort of thing mac is reducing the cost or electricity steadily, according to George Otis Smith, director of the United States geological survey. Alameda Belt Line has been granted authority by the Railroad Commission to maintain and operate an existing track at grade across certain strets, and, to construct and operate an Interchange track at grade across certain streets in the city of Alameda.

Post, i IS OF DEVELOPMENT Where a year ago only an occasional house was visible in Merriewood from the hills facing that subdivision, there is now almost a solid community showing up among the trees of the first units, according to statements made by the Realty Syndicate Company, owners and developers of the property. Since the first weeks of its sale, Merriewood has been building up at an exceptionally rapid rate, it Is said, and development is now reported well advanced on the sixth unit. The company states: "Steady development of the whole Montclair district, of which Merriewood is part, has had an important and favorable effect on sales in the latter subdivision. Merriewood has been settled more rapidly for the reason that the syndicate finances the construction of complete homes there on terms which are very liberal.' Home building in Merriewood therefore follows right on the heels of the purchase of the lot, for most people find ft as convenient to pay $30 a montn toward a home as to pay-rent. The homes which are offered on these terms consist of a combination living and dining room, wun space tor wall bed, a bedroom with roomy clothes closet, a kitchen fitted with built-in cabinets and a sink, a bathroom equipped with wash basin, toilet and bath tub. and for most of the different styles of houses there is a covered porch. "Merriewood is in a class all by itself." says C. P. Murdock, vice-president and general manager of the Realty Syndicate company.
