Enters School Supply Field

In its expansion the Rucker Fuller
Desk Company has taken over the Cali-
fornia branch of the A. H. Andrews
Company, whose line of school desks has
won during the last half century an in-
ternational reputation. "Andrews school
desks" is a phrase known by all school
people to mean a standard of quality
and excellence. Besides representing the
Andrews factory the Rucker Fuller Desk
Company are the Coast distributors of
Beaver Blackboard, a product of the
Beaver Board Companies that is fast be-
coming recognized for its excellent quali-
ties.

Branches in Oakland and Los Angeles
will afford the buyer the same oppor-
tunity as the main store in San Fran-
cisco.

Cement in Bulk

The plan to buy cement in bulk which
is being advocated by the Cement Asso-
ciation, has many advantages. It is
stated that a positive economy can be
effected in almost all large concreting
operations by purchasing cement in bulk
when carload lots are required. It is
estimated that the efficiency of handling
bulk cement in wheelbarrows is fully 10
per cent greater than in handling it in
sacks. There is a considerable saving in
cement lost in sacks and of time in
emptying, examining, and packing sacks,
beside the direct cost of sacks. On large
jobs special conveyors are eflicient for
unloading the cars and delivering the
cement to the concrete mixer.



What the Big Cantonments Will Require
With the prospects of California draw-
ing one of the big cantonments, some
idea of their size may be had from the
figures given out in connection with the
cantonment at Annapolis Junction, Md.
There will be 28,000 squares of roofing;
20 carloads of plumbing, 192 carloads
tanks, heaters, stoves, ranges, piping,
electrical material and refrigerators; 10
carloads of electric light poles, wires, in-
sulators, etc.; 70 carloads of cement, 175
carloads of sand, 350 carloads of crushed
stone, 3 carloads of fly screens, 130 car-
loads of piping and drains for w,ili'r and

sewage.

THE ARCHITECT AND ENGINEER 137



Color in Architecture—

The tendency today is to put more color into our buildings
— inside and out. Architects are keenly interested in any
materia] that will add color to their work, and at the same
time possesses some structural value.




The above cut icprcbcnls llic J-incii series Glass Brick together with sectional view. The
glass facing is at least %-inch thick. The glass face extends beyond the concrete 1/16-inch.
This provides a shoulder to hold the mortar joint in place and enables the niason to use a
liberal mortar spread between the body of the bricks and at the same time obtain a thinner
joint at the exposed surface. The concrete body is the same size as the standard size brick.
This is the brick for permanent beauty, sanitary effects, and water contact. Brick is made in
standard 4-inch depth also. Catalogue, showing shapes, sent on request.

Glass Brick—

has been found to possess both artistic and structural merits.
The brick is manufactured in any desired tone — bright or sub-
dued — and experiments have demonstrated its practicabihty
as a substitute for Clay Brick for Exterior Walls of Hotels,
Apartment Houses and Hospitals; also a splendid substitute
(and far more Economical) for Glazed and Enamel Brick and
Tile for Light Courts, Swimming Pools, Mausoleums, Baker-
ies and Garages.

In addition to Glass Brick we handle Glass Wall Tile,
(^ilass Floor Tile and Glass Ba.se.
