VOL. CIX OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA. SUNDAY. AUGUST 12. 1928 . . ' V . NO. 43 TT 1 New Medico - Dental Structure to Be Last Word In Arrangement The Medico-Dental building, projected for Fourteenth and Harrison streets, and in which almost seventy per cent of the floor space has already been leased according t to O. B. Royer, agent for the structure, is the outcome "of a comprehensive study and investigation of the facilities provided for the medical profession in this territory. The syndicate fostering the project, it is stated, consulted many of the physicians and dentists locally, regarding the type of building best suited to their needs, the location they would prefer and the facilities required. Royer states: ' "Every phase of this complex undertaking was discussed before a final decision was reached as to location, design and salient features. It was found that no two doctors had visualized the same office requirements, and it became obvious that the architect must design for every tenant his individual office. Early in this survey of local conditions it became apparent that only a building of outstanding merit would be of interest to the medical professions. Therefore, in every way possible, the demands and suggestions of the future tenants have been acceded to, in a spirit of thorough co-operation. "Those backing the Medico-Dental building are interested in giving to the medical professions, a building which, in its simplicity of design and its dominating position on the Oakland skyline, will create a fitting background to the dignity of its purpose. The architectural treatment of the building with the four top stories set back, and its long ver- -tieal -lines,--will Greats a-new. stand. J ard of beauty and design for office structures of this community. "An important consideration was the best method of installing " the various utilities to eliminate unsightly beams, posts, and pipes. There will be no such projections in the building, every room being regular in character and free from all angles and loss of sjiace due to improper planning. "Elevators will be of most modern design, two of them large enough to accommodate stretchers. Building transportation is of utmost Importance, and in this respect, where It was conceded that three elevators, would tie sufficient, four are to be Installed. They are to be equipped with the latest control systems and will facilitate service from every floor. "Considerable study has been given the lobby of the building, which will be finished in marble of attractive color with a special treatment of the celling. The hallway, will be in keeping with- the loby, and rubber tilfe of special design is to be used as g. floor covering.' The covering for the office floors will be governed by the preference of each tenant. "Adequate parking facilities will be available in the new five hundred car Oakland garage adjoining. Everything pertaining to the servicing of an automobile Is to be available. This should prove decidedly advantageous to patrons as well as tenants. "The location of a hospital "unit in this building has met with the most enthusiastic response from the many doctors with whom It has been discussed. The convenience of well-equipped operating rooms in close proximity to the doctors' offices is of a decided interest, particularly to eye, ear, nose and throat specialists. "Hundreds of office layouts have been prepared by experienced men, following suggestions made by members of the medical profession. Frequently these suggestions, when visualized on paper, do not correspond with the requirements of the tenant they were prepared for and in such cases a "layout man" from the architect's office calls on each tenant -and assists him with a re-arrangement to obtain the maximum of efficiency in a minimum of space. This advisory service is without cost to the tenant. Direct phone service to the pharmacy in the. building is a service made available to each suite of offices. "T It e Medico-Dental building Company Syndicate Tias no "Stock to sell and has no affiliation with any doctor or group of doctors, and is therefore In a position to render maximum service to all tenants. The sole endeavor in this enterprise is the creation of offices for phyisielans and denjists which are complete and perfect in every detail, this to be acompllshed at a cost-permitting the leasing at prevailing rental rates. Friendly cooperation and suggestions are appreciated, as the ultimate success of the venture rests with the men who use the office space. The total number of building permits for the week ending Wednesday, August 1, was 97 permits, totaling J155.306. The total number of building permits for the month of July was 443 permits, totaling $1,38;1,908.

The cling peach canning season is in full swins In the model plant of Butter Cooperative Growers, located at the foot of Jones or 98th avenue, Oakland. Each day from ten to fifteen carloads filled with the orchard products of fertile Sutter and Yuba counties, arrive on the loading platforms of the railroad spur tracks serving the great plant. Originally this plant was built for a capacity of 3000 cases dally, but with the installation of new equipment it is now capable of taking care of 6500 cases daily, It Is stated by Frank E. Lancy, president of Sutter Cooperative Growers. At present 600 women and girls, and 150 men, we employed at the plant, says It. P. Golladay, plant superintendent. S. Jack Miller Is general superintendent, C. A. Conrad, assistant superintendent, and Mrs. Mary Swift is foreludy. The visitor to the plant is impressed not only by the immensity of the enterprise, and by the hge numbers of local residents to wiiom it gives employment, but also by the modern equipment, and by the hygienic operation methods. The famed cling peaches of Sutter and Yuba counties, after delivery at the plant, pass through a most careful process of cutting, peeling, grading, sorting, draining, etc, until they are finally canned and placed in the warehouse ready for shipment. In brief, tho process is described as follows: First the peaches are cut and pitted. They thereupon pasH to the "scalder" where tho peels are taken off, and then, through a series of washers, they pass on to a sorting belt, where nil bruised fruit Is sorted out. The peaches then go to the grader, where they are graded for size, thence to canning tables where they are again graded for quality. Being placed on trucks, tho fruit next goes to the cooking department. Thence the cans pass through a "drainer," and subsequently they are fed into the '.'syruper". The next phase is that of the "exhaust box" where the air is exhausted from the cans before they go to the closing machines where the tops are put on. The cans then pass into the "cook er" for processing, and thence on trays on to the cooling floor. The next day, after testing, the cans go to the warehouse, where they are provided with labels, prior to shipment. This is one of several plants operated by Sutter Cooperative growers. 1 FOPflEH PINES HOME Official ground breaking exercises for the splendid new Spanish-Mediterranean home to be constructed in Claremont Pines, and, to he known as the "TRIBUNE-Schlesinger Home," were held last Thursday morning- on the site, In the presence of a large group of Eastbay notables.
