The Cyclone Fence Company controls the quality of its product from the ore to the finished job. The highest grade
materials especially suited to each purpose are selected for use in Cyclone Fence. Furthermore, our engineers design
and specify fencing best suited to customer's requirements; then carry out the work of construction to the erection of
the fence complete. Thus the quality of material and excellence of workmanship are under our control from the
time the ore is mined until the fence is completely built.



WATER

Where a Dependable Water Supply Is Imperative the

Solution Is

Western Gravel Protected Wells

The use of these wells by the largest municipal and industrial
water consumers is their best recommendation, and we are
pleased to have as our customers THE CITY OF SAN FRAN-
CISCO and THE HETCH HETCHY WATER PROJECT.
Before commencing your water development program, investi-
gate the results obtained by us under unusual and difficult
conditions.

THE MUNICIPAL RECORD



183




More than tv>o hundred persons v;ere at the San Diego Airport recently to greet Mayor James Rolph, Jr.,

on his flying visit to the southern city.



MAYOR ROLPH OUTSTANDING
CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR



THE task of choosing a new Gov-
ernor for California should be
one of the easiest which the state
electorate has faced in many years.
One is struck with the all-embrac-
ing qualifications of Mayor James
Rolph. Jr., of San Francisco.

Rolph unquestionably stands head
and shoulders over the field of can-
didates, not because he has been
maj'or of a great city in California
for nearly twenty years, which in
itself makes him the outstanding
figure in the Gubernatorial election,
but principally because of his direct
intimate knowledge of the needs
and problems facing the people of
California.



Perhaps no other candidate in the
past several generations has entered
the lists for the governorship so im-
pregnabh' armed with facts about
California, its farming, its com-
merce, its employments and its sec-
tional needs as has Rolph.

There is no section of the state
of California that Rolph has not
visited many times, sometimes
many times in a year, during the
past twenty years. Not only have
these contacts been made as an im-
portant public official but as a busi-
ness man, as a farmer, as an em-
ployee and employer.

Himself the owner of a 4,000-
acre ranch raising crops of grains



and fruits. Rolph has taken a keen
personal interest in farming and
farmers. There is no section of
California wherein agriculture is a
chief activity that Rolph has not
visited, carefully checking notes,
quietly taking data for both per-
sonal and the public interest. He
has been the guest at hundreds of
county fairs, farmers' institutes and
has spoken to thousands of agricul-
turists, ranchers, vineyardists and
growers of every kind, individually
and collectively.

Through his knowledge of the
shipping business he has come in
direct contact with every growing
and producing industry in every

section of California, from the snow-
flecked peaks of the north to _ the
broad sunny valleys of the south-
land. His hand has been in every
industry and his voice has been
lifted countless times in the con-
ferences of the state's industrial
leaders.

His interests, personal and official,
have taken him to factory and farm,
