distribution of water, it will con-
tinue to be one of the institutions
of San Francisco, for while all of the
properties which were used in the pro-
duction, storage or distribution of
water have been taken over, the com-
pany still retains its non-operative
properties which must be administered.

Although the Spring Valley Com-
pany has to a large extent passed out
of the picture as a water utility, there
has been no interruption in service to
the people. All employees in the



March



operating department of the company
have been taken over by the city and
continue to render the same service to
the public as they did formerly. The
Board of Public Works of San Fran-
cisco supplants the Board of Directors
of the company, and Mr. Nelson
Eckart. for many years first assistant
City Engineer, becomes general man-
ager in place of Mr. George Elliott,
who performed the functions of this
office under the company's regime.

There is much which might be
written as to the formation and early
history of the Spring Valley Water
Company, its activities in the affairs
of our city, as well as its efforts to



I



at all times procure a water supply
adequate to the needs of San Fran
Cisco, but space does not permit; suf-
fice to say that from a very humble
beginning it became a great company,
played its part in the building of the
city, and has now stepped aside to
permit the more modern idea, that
water used by a city must be munici-
pally owned, to function, and the San
Francisco Water Department takes up
its burden where it was dropped, con- J
fident of its ability to do its full part "
m the operation of a water system
which soon will be second to none in
the world.



Captain Francis, Veteran Flyer, New Airport
Superintendent



CAPTAIN Roy N. Francis, veteran
aviator, has been named superin-
tendent of the city's municipal airport
at Mills Field, by the Board of Super-
visors. Captain Francis succeeds
Bartlett Stephens, who resigned as
acting superintendent of the airport to
engage in commercial aviation.

Captain Francis is a native of San
Francisco. He has been flying since
1907. He has had wide aviation ex-
perience and during the World War
laid out seventy-five fiying fields for
the Federal Government, including
Kelly Field, Texas. Francis is a for-
mer captain in the air service and was
associated with General William Mit-
chell at Washington during the post-
war period. He prepared the code of
regulations and rules for army flying
fields and in 1919 was selected by the
United States Army to consider a
flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Cap-
tain Francis is mechanical, aero-
nautical and electrical engineer.

In 1910 Captain Francis established
a world's altitude record of 17,000
feet at Goldfield, Nev. Subsequently
he claimed the record of flying across
San Francisco bay with a passenger,
the first time such an aerial feat had
been accomplished. At the Panama-
Pacific International Exposition in
San Francisco in 1915, Captain Fran-
cis and Lincoln Beachy were the first
aviators to entertain the crowds at
stunt flying.

Authority to negotiate for the pur-
chase of the city's airport has been
given to the joint Airport, Finance and
Public Welfare committees by the
Board of Supervisors.

That part of the Mills Estate now
used for the city's airport, consisting




CAPTAIN ROY N. FRANCIS
Superintendent, Milts Field

of 150 acres, has an approximate value
of $1000 an acre.

On recommendation of the Airport
and the Finance committees, the Board
of Supervisors has approved an ap-
propriation of $26,615 for improve-
ment of roads, hangars and fire pro-
tection at Mills Field.

The first plane of the newly formed
Continental Air Express left on its
inaugural flight from Mills Field on
the morning of March 1, bound for
Los Angeles via Fresno. Supervisor
E. Jack Spaulding, chairman of the
city's airport committee ; Captain
Francis, superintendent of the Air-
port; Captain Charles Goff of the
Police Traffic Department, and others
were present to wish the plane bon
voyage.

SUPPLIES HEAD BOOSTS
LOCAL PRODUCTS



Leonard S. Leavy Explains
Department Policy

City Purchaser of Supplies Leonard
S. Leavy has addressed to Mayor
Rolph and the Board of Supervisors,
the following communication, which is
self-explanatory:

"Requests are frequently received
asking consideration for 'Made in
California' products when bids are
opened for the various commodities
purchased for use of the city depart-
ments.

While under our organic law (the
Charter) no preferential is permissible
to local bidders, it has been the en-
deavor of the purchaser of supplies
with the hearty cooperation of the
Mayor and the Board of Supervisors
to encourage local competition to the
benefit of local trade.

The bureau has a fixed desire to
help local industries and to illustrate,
has circularized the San Francisco
Chamber of Commerce, Building
Trades Council, Labor Council, and
the California State Chamber of Com-
merce so that these quasi-public or-
ganizations might assist through the
medium of their membership to sell
our idea to local merchants.

The result has been gratifying as to
price, quality of goods oflFered and
service and we now have of record as
being manufactured or produced in
San Francisco and in California, the
following commodities :

San Francisco

Ambulance bodies, ash cans, auto tires
and tubes, awnings, bags, batteries, bath-
ing suits, beds, bed springs, boilers, bolts,
manufactured books, boots, bottles, box-
board products, brooms, brushes, buckets.

chemicals, cleaning fluids, men's and
women's clothing, compressor (heads),

WILLIAM McCarthy

RETIRES FROM SERVICE



The employees of the Bureau of
Engineering gave a dinner at the
Elks' Club. Saturday evening, March
8. in honor of William H. McCarthy,
who was retired from service on
March 1, after many years' employ-
ment as an Inspector of Streets and
Sewers.

Mr. McCarthy's popularity was
manifested by the attendance of many
friends and associates, among whom
were President T. A. Reardon of Lhe
Board of Public Works, Sheriff W. J.
(Dick) Fitzgerald, fomierly attached
to the Engineering Department, and
Senator Tim Treacy, the dean of tl;e
contractors.

During the dinner, "Bill" McCarthy
was presented with a Sparton Radio,
which came as a complete surprise.
After several brief addresses were
made, the remainder of the evening
was devoted to a well arranged pro-
gram of entertainment.

We Thank
You

THE publishers of San
Francisco Municipal Rec-
ord are deeply grateful for the
many messages of commenda-
tion we received following pub-
lication of our first annual Mu-
nicipal Blue Book and official
directory. While an extra 1000
copies of the Blue Book were
printed, requests for additional
copies from department heads,
civic organizations and busi-
ness houses generally came in
so fast the edition soon was ex-
hausted. We are glad the Blue
Book was so generously wel-
comed and assure our readers
it was a pleasure to have
printed an edition that was es-
teemed so highly.

Lloyd Te))is McAfee



rWENTY-ONE years ago, in August,
a young civil engineer with a liberal
allotment of brains and an inexhaustible
fund of energy joined the staff in the City
Engineer's office. That young engineer —
he was not quite twenty-eight years old —
was Lloyd Tevis McAfee. Today, he is
Chief Assistant City Engineer, in charge
of Utilities, Tunnels, Railways and Water
in the office of City Engineer M. M.
O'Shaughnessy.

Mr. McAfee's promotion to the second
highest post in the engineering department
came through capability for the position
and his unswerving loyalty to the depart-
ment he so faithfully has served. Into those
nearly twenty-one years' service to the city
of his nativity Mr. McAfee's engineering
record is notable for its outstanding achieve-
ments.

)ORN in San Francisco, June 27, 1881 ,
young McAfee attended the Pacific
Heights and the Pacific Avenue schools.
Then followed the final years of his schol-
astic days with a completed preparatory
course at Belmont (California) private
school. Having decided that he would be-
cotne a Civil Engineer, it is characteristic
of the man that he should have carried out
that purpose undeviatingly and thoroughly.

From helper chainman, rodman and in-
strument man on railway surveys in Shasta
County and on surveys for proposed hydro-
electric projects in Kings County, to the
position of Chief Assistant City Engineer
for the City and County of San Francisco,
is the transition Mr. McAfee has ex-
perienced.

i jl HE following is a chronology of Mr.
-^ McAfee's engineering work:

Helper chainman and rodman under J.
B. and C. S. Rogers, Civil Engineers, on
railway surveys in Shasta County — June,
