Wood states: "Real estate activity In the East Oakland-San Leandro district has been reported especially active since the announcement of the Chrysler-Dodge and Seiberling tire projects. The construction work which is expected to start on both In a short time will aggregate $10,000,000 and this alone, in the employment it will give to hundreds of workmen and the money It will put in circulation locally, will greatly stimulate local business and cause property values In that section to increase rapldy It Is said. The big advantage of these new industries from the standpoint of property owners, however, is the fact that they will employ together 10,000 people. That will mean a great many new residents In the Eastbay for there Is practically no unemployment here at present and with that many new Jobs there will have to be practically the same number of new people. Thegreat-majorlty- of-- these will look for homes nearby, for statistics shpw that 50 per cent of the industrial workers live within a radius of one mile on their places of employment. Officials of the Oakland Chamber of Commerce state that there are .fourteen additional corporations negotiating- for Eastbay sites for projects which will - employ another 20,000 persons.

A largely Increased business the last few months has made it necessary to put on additional drapery and floor covering sales men and speed up deliveries from the east to take care of the San Francisco, Sacramento and Fresno demands as weir as the trade reached by the local office, it is stated. led this company to enter the East Oakland and San Leandro field when others could not see Its possibilities has been more than vindicated by these recent developments,"' Wood added. "Now , that the progress we prophesied has actually come, Individual investors are visiting our subdivisions by the hundreds and subdividers are bargaining for the remaining acreage. This company Is In the fortunate position of having secured the best located properties at an early date when- the demand was tighter and the prices therefore lower. As a result, we are able to offer in Estudillo Estates and Durant Manor some of the most beautiful home-sites and the best Investment opportunities to be found in the East-bay.
