of the people interested in the Mt.
Scott park went before the city
council to report the conditions which
make necessary a permanent park at
the corner of Millard avenue and
As the buying of additional ground
for parks is conditional on the voting
of the |500,000 bonds for the pur
pose nothing definite could be done
in the matter. The question of the
bond issue comes up to be voted on
June 3 and al) residents of the Mt.
« Scott district aro urged to vote in
< favor of the issue.
• A representative of the city park
board stated that the ML Scott dis
trict would undoubtedly be one of the
districts of the city to secure a park
as the officials realise that it is a
big district and at the present time
wholly without park facilities. It is
said that Portland as a whole is not
adequately provided with parks, hav
ing about 300 people per acre of
parks, while the usual proportion in
large cities is about 100 people per
acre of park.
In case the bond issue carries the
city will make a careful canvas of
the Mt. Stott district for the best
possible location for the proposed
•• < park, and if they have any particular
/■ location in view at the present time
they will not make it public until
they ¿re ready to take definite action
in order to keep owners of possible
sites from boosting values.

the Baptist church at 11 a. m. While
it was a rather disagreeable day
there was a fair attendance of G. A.

We had been invited there by Rev.
Mr. Smith, who gave us one of the
grandest memorial sermons we have

patriotism of a true and loyal Amer

and so well did he bring out the
great work done by the boys of 61
and 65 and also the world war vet-

him in the front rank as true hearted
American, and we as members of
