If there is one thing more
than another that is respon
sible for the speed with which
this organization works, it is
the simple fact that our prep

far and consistently in ad

to enable us to keep working
on an operation without stop

Speed in building construc

by moving all the time.

Ing and thousands of lights flashed nut
from the fifty-five stories to signal that
New York's newest heaven kissing
tower was opened formally for service.
In recognition of the completion of the
work many distinguished men from nil
parts of the country gathered on the
twenty-seventh tloor to do honor to
Cass Gilbert, the architect, of whose
brain th'o wonder was born, nnd Inci
dentally to dine at a point higher above
this part of the world'n surface than
most of them had reached before.
The twenty-seventh tloor of the Wool-
worth Building wasn't designed for a
banquet hall, but you wouldn't hnve
guessed It last night when F. Hopkln
son Smith, standing beside Frank W.
Wrolworth, announced that the guests
were met at "a dinner of accomplish-

ex-President Taft. whose natno was
greeted with cheers; Gov. Fielder of
New Jersey, Secretary of the Navv
Daniels anil many other distinguished
pfolli' men. At the table where Mr.
Gilbert sat as guest of honor were f!ov.
Aram J. Pothler of Rhode Island. Judge
T. C T. Craln, Senator Itoblnson of Ar-
Kr.nsvs, iouls J. Horowitz, builder nf

the Public Service Commission. D. J.
Walsh, William Winter. Patrick Fran-
els Murphy. W !:. IS. Halliard, Frank
Donohue and C. S Woolworth.
F. Hopklnnnn Smith spoke of the
achievements of the country's great
business men. classing Mr. Woolworth
among them and citing htm as nn ex
ample nf the opportunity for success
which, he said, was still open to nil In
spile of the statements of those who
delighted In attacking men wlio had
succeeded. He added that "attacks on
rich men are quite persistent of late
and from a high quarter."
Then he invited his audience to stand
on the sidewalk some day and "took up
until you get the roofs of your mouths
sunburned while gar.lng nt the Gothic
tower piercing the blue, a lasting monu
ment to the poor farmer boy who kept
at the head of the procession."
That started the cheering nnd there
was more of It when Mr, Woolworth got
up. He started right In saying nice
things about Mr. Gilbert. As he called
the roll of those, who. he said, had made
the building possible, beginning with
Mr. Moore and Mr. Smith, his Hist em
ployers, he called on the men he named
to stand up. and the cheering for the
"Woolworth exhibits." as some one
named them, was almost continuous.
Mr Woolworth snld that when he told
Mr. Gilbert that he wanted a building
750 feet high the architect had in
quired If ho was to be 'limited' to that
height. Mr. Woolworth said he had re
plied that was "the minimum." He
added that It was only recently that he
had learned Just how high the building
Is. Mr. Gilbert, he snld, didn't tell him
xnctly, so he ordered engineers to make
sure of the exact measurements. These
showed, ho said, that at the Park place
corner the distance from sidewalk to
tower top was 791 feet 1 Inch, on the
Barclay street corner 792 feet and at the
Barclay street entrance 793 feet 9 Inches,
The foundations are 121 feet below the
street level, so Mr. Woolworth figured
that his buildjng Is 913 feet 1 Inch high.
When It came Mr. Gilbert's turn he
said that If he had known Mr. Wool
worth as well two years age as he does
now ho wouldn't have stopped at 791
feet fi inches, which nro his figures for
the distance from sidewalk to tower
Mr Gilbert returned all of Mr. Wool
worth's compliments with Interest. Mr.
Woolworth, he said, was tho real ar
chitect, sinco he hnd found in him tho
absolute essential for such a work, "the
sympathetic client "
He said that Mr. Woolworth had proved
that the old fashioned virtues of Indus
try, honesty and thrift were ns sure to
bring success as ever. And he told of
how XIr. Woolworth hnd solved the prob.
lem of financing the undertaking, which
cost 13,SOO,000, "He Just didn't bother
with financing; he paid as he went
along," said Mr. Gilbert. "I asked his
bankers about It and they told mo that
the Woolworth Building Is a structure
unique In New York, since It stands
without mortgage and without a dollar
That statement brought nut nil tho
cheering forces and caused the big noise
of the celebration. Whop Mr. Gilbert
could make himself heard he said that
the building stood n a monument to
Mr, Woohvorth'.s "energy, tnsto and
civic pride," and that Mr. Woolworth
fulfilled the definition of "a patron of
the arts," slnco he was one of those
who gave to artists their opportunity.
Mr. Gilbert was no sooner seated than
he had to rise, again to receive a huge
silver punch bowl presented by Mr.
Other speakers wero Louis J Horn
wltz. who had to answer tho plensant
things said by Mr. Woolworth and Mr.
Gilbert about "the builder"; William
Winter, who spoko of "tho artist and
tho Woolworth Building," and Patrick
Francis Murphy, who said among other
things that brought laughs:
"Our host and guests, represent a
happy union of commercial genius and
architectural art, like those suburban
Before tho guests wero token to the
alpine heights of tho banquet hall Mr.
Woolworth held a reception on the mez
zanine floor, occupied by tho Irving Nn
tlonal Bank. He said later that when he
first canin to Now York ho went to thnt
bnnk nnd found It reluctant to accept
his small deposit.
