UNIVERSITY SINGERS The cream of the University of Oregon's vocal talent is combined in this
40-voice mixed chorus. Called the University Singers, they will perform in Roseburg Tuesday,
May 24, at 1:30 p. m., in the Senior High School auditorium. There will be no admission charged
and the general public is invited. However, a free will offering will be taken to help defray the
expense of the singers, said Principal Alva Laws.
PROCRESS This was all that remained Friday of the once proud Union Oil Service Station at
South Stephens and Lane Streets. The station, built about 1920, was one of the oldest, if not
the oldest, service stations in Roseburg. Constructed of reinforced concrete, it was a sturdy
building, but not modern, and such buildings cannot stand in the way of progress. It had to be
moved to be replaced by you guessed it a new modern super service station, which the com
pany will erect at an estimated $15,000 cost. Hamilton Construction Company has the con
tract for wrecking the old station and constructing the new, double bay, super station with
heated rest rooms and hot water. About 60 days will be required for completion. Uperator Don
Johnson is vacationing meanwhile in Nebraska. (Picture by Paul Jenkins.)

work, largest in the Capitol, took 20 years to complete and another
20 years to have it placed in the Capitol.
