In conertion with the foregoing, a
representative of the Herald called
upon several members of the com­
munity in an effort to sound public
sentiment upon the proposed improve­
ment. F'rom all indication*, a strong
remonstrance will be made; just how

resident* of la*nts will undoubtedly be

coupons. It has come to the notice
of the contest manager that some of
the merchants issuing coupons have
felt that it was entirely proper, when
a customer purchased a bill of goods
and failed to call for coupons, to turn
the number the person would have
been entitled to over to a contestant.
This is not fair dealing, and it would
be unwise to permit it. In the future,
all contestants must secure their cou­
pons from those who secure them
from the merchant or outside of the
store in which they are issued. This
rule Is inflexible and the Herald will
not accept coupons that do not at
some time pass through th* hands of
the person who purchases goods.
For this week’s contest, the Herald
has chosen the name of the Archer
Garage. This firm is located at 5510
Foster Road and is well known among
automobilist* as a reliable place at
which to secure the usual garage ser­
vice and supplies.
Find the twelve
mir.sing letters, comply with the oth­
er conditions as explained on the
,rsde-at-home page and send your an-
:-»er. with coupons, to the Herald
cc"test manager.
Incidentally, in
those cases where a large number of
votes are 'ent in. it is only necessary
to write the name and address of the
contestant on the top coupon and tie
all firmly together.
Commis»ioner Pier Âdvo
cate» Highway System
to Touch Lent»
An extensive system of municipal
boulevard*, which eventually will rep­
resent an expenditure of more than
$20,000,000, i* visualized by 8. C. Pier
commissioner of finance, who laid his
plan before a joint meeting of city
council and representative citizens on
Thursday morning.
The boulevard plan, as expounded
by Pier, would make Portland on* of
the wonder cities of the world. He
hopes to finance hi* project largely
through gifts from public-spirited cit­
izen*, who he believes will pour mil­
lion* into boulevard* to develop the
city properly.
Commissioner Pier hopes to have a
large portion of the system completed
by 1925 for the Atlantic-Pacific High­
way* and Electrical exposition to be
held here then.
An inner system along the Willam­
ette river and an outer system skirt­
ing the city limit* are provided for in
the project. He plan* to have the
elaborate improvement accomplished
with no increase in th* tax levy.
The first work, a* planned by Pier
and other preponente of the plan,
would be on the we*t side of the Wil­
lamette river.
A scenic roadway
along the west shore of the river from
Oswego to Portland, winding among
the hills to tne Skyline boulevard. ia
one of the first development* pit""”«*
One of th* main boulevard! on the
east side would follow the banks of
Johnson Creek from the Willamette
river to Lent*. Others planned would
encircle and bisect the eaat and west
sides of the river in much the same
way as outlined by Cheney for the
city planning commission.
Development of land now inaccess­
ible, ia also counted on to finance as
much of the work as citizens attuned
to the project will fail to do.
