And Remember to Get a Stop-Over for Springfield.
.SPRINGFIELD, OREGON, THURSDAY, AUGUST 19, 1915
OF COURSE WE COULD DO IT.
The Springfield spirit is not dead.
The Go Getters are not forgotten.
Pep, snap, and ginger of former days sparkled in' the
fine community effort to provide in Springfield a suitable
camping ground for travelling autoists. Less than a week
.ago the plan took form. Monday one of the local organiza
tions offered its rooms for a meeting, and a lot of personal
solicitation, added to the call published Monday in The News
brought out a fine representative crowd Tuesday evening.
Wednesday morning the work was under way, and before
noon the first tourist had been captured and welcomed as
the guest of Springfield. Snap and ginger characterized the
printing of handbills for use on the main highway until proper
signs could be painted and erected.
The news is going fprward that Springfield offers ac
commodations to the traveller accomodations that are su
perior, and worth making an effort to reach. Three parties
the first night is just a beginning. The news will be spread
to the north and to the south and to the east and the west.
Others will hear of Springfield and will be her guests. Treat
them right and they will send others. The measure of the
success of the plan is the measure of public Interest in the
comfort and welfare of the travelers.
The particularly pleasing thing about the whole project
is the spirit ,of co-operation in which the work is being ac
complished. Citizens with a little spare time, and citizens who
have to take a few .moments from nn already busy day have
joined in the work of making the needed preparations. All of
the .details have been grasped at once, and as soon as a feas
ible detail .is suggested, it has been put Into execution. The
effort and .the spirit that prompts it are splendid.
And right here we want to pay a tribute to the man who
has made possible the plan in many of its desirable features.
Mr. Simon Klovdahl of Eugene is a man. lie is a big, broad
man. The property, use of which he has donated, Is in litiga
tion at this time over a sidewalk assessment. Mr. Klovdahl
objected to the amount of the assessment and declined to
pay It, saying he would depend upon the action of the courts.
The case Is now in the state supreme court, but Mr. Klovdahl,
instead of being resentful at his lack of success In the lower
court, offers the property, rent-free, for the benefit of the
community. Mr. Klovdahl is a gentleman, and he has the
hearty appreciation of the citizens of Springfield.

DO YOU KNOW
That there are irrigated lands In every county in Oregon
with two exceptions?
That there are interesting Irrigation projects at West
Stayton, Brownsville and near Medford, and that others are
contemplated in the vicinity of Roseburg? .
That about 50 per cent of all farms in Eastern Oregon
are wholly or in part irrigated?
That about 50 per cent of the tillable land In Eastern
Oregon requires irrigation to produce "paying crops?
That there are only two "Carey Act" projects in the
state now selling land?
That Oregon is the only state In the union that has
appropriated funds and completed an irrigation project?
That raw land, with full water right, can be purchased at
$40 an acre, 10 years' time?
That irrigated land makes alfalfa, alfalfa makes hogs,
and hogs make money?
That some of Oregon's irrigated lands produce more
corn per acre than do lands in Iowa?
That east of the Cascade range there are hundreds of
thousands of acres of lands where water, sunshine and sqil
await capital for creating a gre at trade center for Portland?

There does not appear to have been any mad rush to put
into effect The News' suggestion of Monday that Springfield
bond itself for half a million or so In order to encourage the
Southern Pacific to finish .the Natron cutoff. That might be
going a little strong, still, the only way for a community to
get anything is to go after it with inducements.
