Uncle Sam Battles "Dusters" and Floods
By James Dyson RADIO warnings, people evacuated to hills, city streets swirling torrents, houses tumbling down murky rivers, hunger, thirst, almost pestilence—that was the spring just past.

Building Dreams of Steel In San Francisco Bay
by C.W. Geiger They said it couldn't be done—span the Bay and Golden Gate with bridges, but San Francisco did it And threw in a great Exposition to boot. This story tells how the impossible is accomplished. THE intricate and wondrously knit glittering spans of the world's two greatest bridges across the Golden Gate and Oakland Bay, and a magic isle of Atlantis—dripping with all the miracles of an international exposition, is what San Francisco is preparing for your coming in 1938-39. The site of the Exposition lies in the white-capped San Francisco-Oakland Bay area, midway between the two cities, on shoal land located just north of the adjoining Yerba Buena Island. And this year 385 acres of shoal will be filled in to provide the site for the Exposition. By the end of 1936, when the fill is completed, architectural plans for the buildings will also be finished, so that actual construction will begin with 1937.
