Extensive plans for interesting Riverside county business in the Alberhill clay deposits and large contemplated operations there with the formation of a gigantic company planned are results of a recent get-together of Riverside interests to discuss the bearing of Alberhill clay deposits on the community.

Investigations directed toward securing better insulators under severer tests than have hitherto been considered necessary have been started by LeRoy C. Williams, insulation expert, at the Alberhill Research Laboratories to further the development of high tension insulators needed by the growing hydro-electric power systems. Mr. Williams has also been commissioned by the Alberhill interests to make intensive tests of all California clays. Power systems and manufacturers are co-operating.
