ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1921.
St. Johns Community Club
The meeting of tho St. Johns
Community Club nt the Y. VV.
C. A. building Tuesday evening
was especially interesting. Ihu
nttendance was large and the
oveninir was spent in an enjoy
uble manner. Representatives of
tno city government, the park
bureau and school board were
present and made interesting and
informing talks. Tho advisabil
ity, practicability and necessity
of a new sewer system in St.
Johns district was the keynote
of their discourdes. It was Jm
pressed upon the audience that
the lack of proper sewerage fa
cilities would handicap to some
extent the construction of the
new high school building and
ulio tend to impede the develop
m.int nf Mm nnw St. .Inlinn nnrlc.
It whs urged that in the interest
nf nmtier sanitation and the wel-!
i:ire of the community in gen-
iiiul that the sowers bo con
structed. G. B.Johnson, assist
ant to Commissioner Barbur,
tnudo the initial address and
stated that more work is boing
done in the northeast Bcction of
the city than in any other, and
that the channel from tho Co
l nubia Slough would be com-
phted in ubout a month. The
city, he said, docs nut want to
iorco improvements upon the
DHonlo, but want to learn tho ut
titudeof the people concerning
them. Ho said that the plans
have been completed for the Or
egonian avenue sewer, and that
tho cost of tho trunk sewer to
property owners abutting upon
it would be, on a conservative
odlimato. $135 to $U0 per 50x
100 foot lot, instead of $150, the
first estimate, and that tho cost
to other lots abutting upon the
trunk sewer would be npprox
i -nattily $20 per lot, tho differ
ence being on account ot the
litter having later on to con
struct laterals to the trunk bow
or. which would bring tho cost
of each lot eventually tho same
iisifon the trunk sewer. Mr.
Johnson brought n map depicting
the proposed sewer systems and
during the social hour expluincd
to all who sought furthnr in
formation. He stated that it
was tho policy of tho city to con
rlruct the sower lino on tho aide
of tho street whore macadam
was laid in tho center, on J that
no property owner connected
with tho present going sower
would bo culled upon to pay any
purt of tho new sewer.

Alorc About Sewer Question
To the property owners in the
proposed Osweuu street sewer
system district, (which wns (lis
cussed on one side at tho Com
munity Club meetintr Inst Tncs
dny evening,) I wish to say that
the OawoKo street system has
nothinc to do with the now hinh
school or with the new park, nor
does it scre nny school or nub
lie ntFair. it is a purely local
atiair, altecting only the local
property owners who have to pay
lor it. and is not of public in
teres t. I think it would bo better
to let this local sewer question
rest until the present city liens
for street improvements are well
paid oil', and until tho largo
number of people that purchased
homes on installments nt war
lime prices, and ure now work
inn at $3 a day or less, to pay for
them, have their present debts
so far paid oif as to enable them
to meet the new expenses. The
now burden would in many
cases be more than they could
stand and they would have to
quit and let their property no.
The Oswego street sewer is not
iudistieusible at this time. No
emergency e.xists.any more than
last year or any other year. The
OroKoninn avonue sewer system
will serve the new hiuh school.
