"Another terrace is yet to be erected which will make the building about forty feet higher fhan it is at the present stage of construction."

A description of the Structure reads: "The design of the Lowell Jr., High school, is TudofHs one of the best examples of that type of arch-itti,rA nseii for school buildings nn he Pacific Coast. There has been careful thought given to the combination of materials, which ha BDOTi Viv fhe lavman. as the building is nearing completion.

Manv fathers and mothers can remember when they proudly hailed tneir new scnooi wt.n nu less feeling than the studentsof the new Lowell will display when they march Into their new quarters goon after, the llrst 01 .me year. Modern fathers are giving more consideration to the requirements of their families in the matter of selecting homesites and less to their own personal needs, in the opinion of J. A. Scofield, of the Walter H. Leimert company, developers of Oakmore Highlands, and one of the pioneers in the ranks ol i.astDay realtors. "In the olden days a man, In selecting a homesite, would exhibit great concern about the location with, relation to his place of business or employment," explained Scofield. "In other words, he was very apt to fix the desirability of a homesite by its proximity to his work. "Today this haa all changed. Invariably the first question asked by a prospective purchaser of a home-site concerns the location of the property" With reference to schools. Following this he asks about hop-plng centers and districts. "Oakmore Highlands Is fortunately within easy access of six schools and this one factor, I believe, has been responsible for a majorlty,of the sales In the tract which have now passed the half million dollar mark." Another factor which prospective home owners take Into consideration, according to Scofield Is the matter of scenic environment. "Today, people who are locating In the Eastbay district seem to realize as never before that they are living In one of the beauty spots of California," he explains. "Realizing this, they seem to feel that there is no particular advantage in living in such a section unless they utilize some of this beauty and make it on ef the assets of their homesite." Mt. Vernon Park Homes To Be Built INDIVIDUALITY OF HOMES IS fill; FACTOR "In many instances the character of the homes being built in a subdivision ia the deciding factor which makes or prevents the sale of property to the individual." Luck is the opinion of the F. F. Porter Company, exclusive selling agents for Le Bon Park, a new home center located one block be yond the junction of Foothill and Hollywood Boulevards, in san leandro. "The high quality of the homes being built by Kenneth C. Martin for sale in Le Bon Park have aided sales here remendously," Robert M. Saylor, treasurer of the Porter Company, said yesterday. "Martin has been building in Le Bon Park since it was first placed on sale a little over a year ago and he has found a ready demand for the homes he has. built. " . "One reason, for that, of -course, is that Martin has built homes ihat are distinctly and individually charming homes that depart obn- sidet-abiy from iHrttattajra.'suTu-' ban bungalow. Some of his homes are Spanish and some are English and Colonial, but there is individ uality about all of them tha. makes them appeal very strongly to those who love beautiful homes. "Many person who have bought property have told us that they were first favorably impressed with '.he high character of the homes they saw being built. They saw how well Le Bon Park lends itself to homes that are out of the ordinary and when they considered these facta and learned that large lots are selling here at much lower prices than are being asked for property without all improvements much farther out, they bought, naturally." CALIFORNIA BUILDING THIRD California ranked third In building during April, being exceeded only by New York and Chicago. I- -fl' (-' -. 1 r-- l mWJ: W1 Geo Thousands of Roses Bl kurGarden rgeCRoeding Motorists and travelers generally are now enjoying one of the most beautiful and remarkable sights of Alameda county the great rose fields at Niles where at this sea-, son of the year millions of blooms afford a profusion of brilliant color. One of the important industries of Alameda county, the nursery business, at' no season of the year attracts more attention frora the sightseer than it does during the height of the blooming period of roses. This year, follow-roses are exceptionally beautiful ing the unusually moist winter, the and are blooming with unusual profusion. In the Niles fields will be found several hundred varieties, ranging from the dwarf Polyantha roses to the strong-growing Hybrid Tea and Hybrid- Perpetuals. While many of these plants being grown and strengthened by modern nursery methods will ultimately find thfitr,.,,, way, ..into ,..Ui.gariefi -of California honres, a large population of them also will go east. The demaftd for quality California roses has each year increased and experience has shown that nowhere, are conditions more favorable to their production than at Niles. From Niles alone more than a quarter of a million two-year old budded rose plants will be marketed this year, and many of them will go in carload lots to various communities in the east. ' Among the finest of the roses now to be seen at Niles are a number of novelties such as the beautiful gojden yellow rose, "Rev. F. Page Roberts," which has bat recently leapt into such great jsopu-larity, the charming Hybrid Tea of brilliant coppery hue known as "Padre," and the attractive "Golden Emblem," the California origination known as "Los Angeles," one of the most beautiful of roses, a flaming pink springing from a Can One Be Too Careful of Their Own Interest?

THE ACME BUILDERS Four homes axe being planned and are to be Immediately constructed In Mount Vernon Park. Charles Wilson, secretary of the York Co.. Inc., stated: "Approximately thirty days ago we announced the opening of Mount Vernon Park, and have had a most satisfactory response. We have sold every lot on the West Side of McKiflop road and have just a few remaining on Sheffield street. We till have some choice lots on the east side of McKillop road. "The tract has particularly appealed to the homeseeker who desires to be close In and at the tame time enjoys seclusion. Most of Mount Vernon Park lots are view lota and are being sold on terms." , , Reconstruction Will Commence The reconstruction of a large portion of the trolley on the Pier line of the Key . System , Transit company will commence immediately, according to H. P. Bell, engineering executive of the eompany. Nearly 8000 feet of trolley wire and fixtures for ita installation will be replaced with a new type of material which will be of bronze composition in order to resist the corrosion on ferrous metals caused by the salt air of this section. The reconstruction of the trolley system on the Pier line with this high grade material will greatly decrease the cost of maintenance and also the number of line breaks with the resulting interruptions to service, it is stated.

' The Impression carried away by those who have visited the rose fields Is one of a great, endless profusion of color stretching far toward the horizon with a most picturesque background of palms and rolling hills, with Mission Peak in the distance. The suggestion was recently mad that an official rose, or at least a characteristic color of rose, be adopted by the state of Califor-.Pja,., , J'GoIden.noses.'' owauthbrffy said, "would unquestionably be the most appropriate. In Portland Oregon, the sidewalks- are lined with Mme. Caroline Testout, and practically every garden has out or more bushes of this variety. This rose Is a beautiful shell pink, and It Is'largely due to this variety that Portland has become recognized as the Rose City. 'I would like Tery much to yellow roses made the outstanding color In the California rose gardens,.: thus coupling up the name of the Golden State with the golden t low er.
