Seward, secretary and chief appraiser of the itortgage Guarantee company, who was treasurer of the Lawyers' Mortgage company of New York for a number of years, in a recent survey states; "In the present market It seems to me that there is a tendency on the part of some borrowers to load up their properties with all the loans obtainable, and they seem to be encouraged by lenders who are charging high interest rates and discounts, and who feel that they would be willing to take over the properties involved for the amount of the loan. Under circumstances of this sort, the lender is no more to be blamed than the borrower, as both are gambling. It is just as necessary for the conservative borrower to look into the integrity of the lender as it is necessary for the lender to investigate the financial standing and honesty, of, the bor rower. ''Often the value of a iiece of property is judged by the amount of the loan thereon. If poor Judgment is exercised by the lender, and full or top-heavy loan' is obtained by the borrower, almost invariably those interested in the fee will boost the value of the property to two or three times the amount of the loan, thus endeavoring to substantiate an unfair ' Value. This condition Is to be avoided for the good of the community. "I-iet borrowers be more honest with themselves and less critical of the lenders, who often help them most by declining to grant unwarranted and excessive loans, which, if allowed, would only cause the debtors embarrassment and possibly the loss of their property. Again, let the borrower take into consideration not only the amount of the loan but the standing of the lender, and give preference for his own good, to the substantial and conscientious lender, who deaires to assist, not hamper, whose business is loaning and not foreclosing, and who therefore desires least of all to take over the mortgaged premises." of more thoroughly acquainting themselves with the extent to which Eastbay manufacturers are engaged in foreign commerce, according to Moore. One of the features of the week just closed was a reception devot ed to sea captains wno maice uaK-land a port of call' wlth their ves sels. - The advantage of personally .ac quainting these men. with Oakland development, Moore points out, is that on arrival in port they have the authority for the purchase of laree Quantities of supplies for ves sels; .and these purchases are made from local manufacturers. This is especially true of the masters or foreign vessels, who are given wide discretion in refitting vessels for service. Moore explained, also, that many marine masters have an idea that Oakland is a shallow port. By demonstrating to them through a thorougnxplanatlon- of-present harbor facilities and contemplated port Improvement, that Oakland is one of the most " Important deep water harbors on the Pacific coast. Moore asserted that Oakland's reputation as a world port with deep water and first class facilities will be' established throughout the shipping centers.

B. Field Company, In charge of sales and development work In Oak Knoll. E. B. Field stated: "This new scenic boulevard is soon to be an important thoroughfare for eastern travel out of Berkeley, Claremont'SJld Piedmont and for Oak Knoll residents. It will be a delight to the motorist not only for its ample width and ease in driving, but also for the view it affords. The grading is nearly finished on Mountain boulevard, arid it will be open to traffic in sixty days. The constructlon,swork on this Important thoroughfare is typical of what will be done throughout the entire tract. It is our purpose to create a home community in this beautiful spot in Oakland which will be second to none1 inline state. The natural topography of the land has made the task comparatively simple, but we are going far to make every feature ofv the development equally attractive. The golf course on the property Is representative of this. Designed by Willie Locke, it has been declared by golfers, who have Inspected the plans and seen the course as laid out, to be one of the best on the coast. Grass has been up on the first ten holes for some weeks and the fairways are being rolled and cut. Water pipes are installed underground and automatic sprinklers keep it green. There will be no dragging of hose over the course. We are well pleased," said Field, with the progress on the clubhouse. Within thirty days the framework will be up and enclosed. Then some idea of the beauty of the structure and the provisions made for the comfort and enjoyment of the members will be evident. In 'Unit C of the property the curbs and gutters are going in and the rock sub-surface is being laid. Before the beginning of the rainy season this work will be completed. All construction work is going ahead at top speed." Building in San Leandro Is still showing an increase, according to a report of Building inspector Fred C. Sharer. He states, "The month of September was the greatest month in history for the collection of fees. There never have been so many permits Issued for dwellings." The forty-six permits Issued amounted to $180, 050 "for homes and garages and $3500 for alterations. The Fred T. Wood Compay comments: . "Closely linked with these figures is the building activity at Best Manor, Estudillo and Ardmore. Homes are going up apace in these beautiful restricted districts.
