Scott Herald: About six months ago we decider! to make our home in this locality, which, in many respects, is one of the most desirable residence districts in the city of Portland. Cheaper rents, more room and garden patches, fruit tree* for family use, etc., to gether with it* scenic beauty and car service should make it attractive to the home seeker. We have one of . the finest and best equipped school buildings in the city. Yet there are some things we wish to criticise. While we save a pub lic library, which is good as far as it goes, it does not fill the bill, inas much as there is no reading room nor sufficient accommodations for one. Hence, the library is almost ex clusively patronized by pupils of the public schools. To make Lents an up-to-date com munity center there «should be a men’s resort, with the daily papers and current magazines. If a part of the library rooms are available, so far so good; if not, some other room should be secured where workingmen who desire could meet socially and read if they wished in the evening. This is not “hot air,” as I am willing to do my share towards promoting such a movement. Then, still more Lents needs a good hotel that would be attractive to tourist* and transient visitor* to this part of the city, and let them see that we have something beside* mud and water knee deep to offer. Another need in this community is a live-wire improvement club. It was such a club that made Vancou ver, Wash., where we lived and made our home for six years, the live city it is today. Last but not least, The Herald should be in every home in the Lents district, and every business man should be an advertiser in its pages. We have talked with several around and within three blocks of The Her ald office who have said in reply to a question, “O, I never see that pa per,” and still others who remarked. “O, pshaw, I didn’t know they had a paper here.” Let us wake up and do something.
