Lenta, March 7, 1919.
Editor Mt. 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
