The advantage of the Eastbay as an Industrial location are emphasized by the rapid growth of the California Animal Products company, manufacturers of Calo dog and cat food, also California dog biscuits.

It has been necessary for them to enlarge many times during the last few years, so that now they have 25,000 square feet of floor space. According to H. C. Clayburgh, president of the company, the dog and cat food consumed in the western Btates before the formation of hi company wa all brought In from the east. Clayburgh states that the reason for the phenomenal growth of his company is that the Owners of dogs and cat are fast reallmng the advantage or the proper reading of their animals, and that he has put the price of such foods within the reach or every dog ana cat owner. This factory at the present time is working 24 hour a day turning out 60,000 cans or animal rood. Jut three years ago they started with but three employees and now they have an average of over 60. The Kopularity of dogs has In creased tremendously, according to Clayburgh, since thie disappearance of the horse. This is shown by the fact- that there are over 30,000 dogs in the Eastbay and some 20,000 in San Francisco. This animal food is being shipped from Oakland to all parts of the world. Their export business Is just in its Infancy, and a great volume is expected within a short period of time, for the reason that an educational campaign Is being conducted by the company a to the proper feeding of animals.
