The Parker System of Group Dentistry Improves Service and Reduces Cost



YOUR TEETH

Dentistry Without Pain

It is now an established fact that Dentistry without pain
is practiced successfiJIy by dentists who use the E. R.
Parker System.

For 40 years dentists using the E. R. Parker System
have been doing painless dentistry. They were pioneers
in the art.

Systematic methods of cutting costs through groups of
skilled dentists working together in a single office and
through collective mass-buying power, are other ways in
which dentists using the E. R. Parker System have won
fame for surprisingly reasonable prices, without slighting
quality.

Remember, the longer you neglect your teeth the more
it will cost you in the end and the greater the suffering
and chance of serious illness in the meantime.

Not only are prices moderate for dentistry done the
Parker Way, but you can pay for the work as it pro-
gresses.

Visit a dentist using E. R. Parker System today — exami-
nation and advice free, without obligation.

SAN FRANCISCO
WATER



The November report of the San
J-'rancisco water department handed
in to the Board of Supervisors by
Xelson A. Eckart, general manager,
shows a net profit to the city of
$417,666.30 over and above all ex-
penditures since the acquisition of
the Spring \'alley Water Company,
last ^larch 3. During this same
period bonds have been retired out
of the earnings of the department to
the amount of §416,666.66. In addi-
tion improvements and extensions
have been made amounting to
$397,816.65.

Total earnings for November were
$16,372.96 less than for October.
Items showing a decrease under this
head were water sales outside of San
Francisco and miscellaneous non-
operating revenue. The existing



business conditions will account for
the former decrease. It should also
be mentioned that for the same rea-
son, although sales in San Francisco
are greater than for the previous
month, never the less compared with
the corresponding month of 1929
there is a decrease of $42,110. The
decrease in the non-operating rev-
enues occurs because of the returns
from the walnut orchard reported in
October, 1930.

Total expenses for the month
were $333,333.49, which is a decrease
of $24,524.39 over the previous
month. This decrease was due prin-
cipally to cessation of maintenance
work on the Stone Dam Aqueduct,
the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct bridge
and the relocation of Crystal
Springs pipe line at South San
Francisco.



Rents froin lands and buildings
increased $2172 because of the ad-
justment and collection of taxes for
the year 1930-1931 from various les-
sees; this adjustment is not of a re-
curring nature Taxes show a de-
crease of $942.24 on account of
adjustment in October covering the
period from July 1 to September 30.

The decreased earnings and de-
creased expenses resulted in an
increased net income of $8,151.43.

Total construction expenses for
November reached the amount of
$92,506.77, the principal items being
work in the upper Alameda tunnel
and the Sunset well supply.

The number of men employed in
the operating and maintenance work
has been decreased from 559 on Oc-
tober 31 to 486 on November 30.
This net decrease of seventy-three
results from a decrease of fifty-four
in the Peninsular division, of four-
teen men engaged to harvest the
walnut crop of the Spring \'alley
lands, and a net decrease of five in
other divisions.

The detailed report follows below.

New Bridge Speeds Travel to

Sacramento



One of the outstanding railroad
achievements of 1930 was the com-
pletion of its $12,000,000 bridge
across Suisun Bay by the Southern
Pacific, making possible faster train
service between Sacramento and
San Francisco.

As a result of the new bridge



Southern Pacific was able to cut its
Sacramento-San Francisco sched-
ules on December 28 so that legis-
lators or other people traveling be-
tween the two cities can make
the journey in two hours and a
half the fastest railroad time be-
tween these important centers. Low



round-trip fares and a fleet of four-
teen trains each way daily make
this a very attractive service indeed.
The Martinez-Benicia bridge is
the longest and heaviest two-track
structure west of the Mississippi
and is not exceeded in carrying ca-
pacity 'by any bridge in the country.

JAMES V. ALEXANDER

Councilman, City of San Diego



GEORGE F. YOUNG



Of that loyal group of workers in
the strenuous campaign of James
Rolph, Jr., James V. Alexander,
Councilman of the city of San
Diego, was one of thei outstanding
leaders.

Coming out as a Rolph supporter
at the opening of the campaign,
Alexander organized a local com-




mittee and bent every effort to gain
a substantial vote for San Fran-
cisco's popular mayor. The success
of his work was flatteringly exemp-
lified in the huge vote the governor
received from this section in the
primary and the November election.
Councilman Alexander has long
been a loyal supporter of the Re-
publican Party of California. He
has been a member of the Republi-
can Central Committee and also
served on the Executive Committee.
Active in local politics as well, he
has served as councilman of San
Diego and in a private capacity has
been on a number of committees
working for municipal advance-
ment.

San Francisco California



The flattering vote which James
Rolph, Jr., received in Los Angeles
County during the primary and
again in the November election is a
reflection of the outstanding sup-




port and efforts of his campaign
workers there. A noteworthy mem-
ber of this group is George Young,
head of Young's Market Company.

Coming out at the beginning of
the campaign Young bent all his
energies in the support of San Fran-
cisco's popular Mayor. With the
same enthusiasm with which he de-
veloped a small establishment into
one of the leading wholesale, retail
and manufacturing houses dealing
in foods in California, Young was a
leader in building up the confidence
of Southern California in the north-
ern candidate.

Young is one of the foremost
business men of California. Promi-
nent in the civic, business and fra-
