NUMBE3K.48 High Bridge at St. Johns Time was when mention of a high bridge at St. Johns was treated ' aa n joke by many, and something thnt might materialize in the far distant future. Hut times have changed, and wiiat was once far in the future is now in the present. The need of such a bridge is being pretty generally felt. Traffic nt times is congest cd and then the wait on the ferry boat is oftimcs disagreeable and tiresome. The time when the fer ry boat is off duty for boiler cleaning is also annoying. The ferry boat has served its pur pose well, but now like the old horse car, has become inadequate in tltc march of progress. Mod cm times demand modern con veniences. It is time that the ferry boat at St. Johns be replae cd with a bridge. The west side of the river as well as the cast side is building up quite rapidly ana a connecting linage Juis grown to bo a necessity. Not only would it be less dangerous, but far moro satisfactory than the ferry system. Much com plaint Is being made of the con Rested condition of the present bridges over the Willamette, and a high bridge here would do much toward relieving that con gestion. It would afford a rapid means of reaching the business district of Portland, and would be the connecting link of one of the most sccmu driveways in the Northwest. Much business from the Tualatin valley would bo di verted hero by means of a bridge, and the auto travel over it would be immense. Now is the time to boost for this structure. Every civic organization on thu Penin sula should endorse and cooper ate 'in any movement tending to ward its accomplishment, and ev ery citizen should boost for it. Ah we understand the matter, the county commissioners can put the St. Johns bridge measuro up on the ballot at the November election. If they have the power to do so there seems to bo no real reason why they should not. There was enough money saved when former Commissioner Muck won his light for repairing Morri son street bridge instead of build ing anew to construct n bridge at St. Johns and have money to spare. The proposed bridge hero is a couple of hundred feet in heighth high enough for the tal lest vessel to pass underneath.

Idols and Feet of Clay Is there no such thing as mar ried happiness in the real life of movie heroes and heroines! Do these actors and actresses fake romance so much that, thpy have lost their capacity for the genu iue article? Such a conclusion is forced upon us. Today we read of the marriage of two screen stars and a word picture is painted of 'their nuptials that re minds one of the fadeaway happy ending of one of their thrilling II I in dramas. Tomorrow they are in the divorce courts with stories of scandalous escapades, infidel t ty and cruelty hurled back and forth. Apparently there are few exceptions. A few days ago it was announced that Uloria iSwau sou and her wealthy husband had come to the parting of the ways. On the same page was the story of the estrangement of Marshall Neilaii and Blanche Sweet, who were married not many months ago. Yesterday nuws was flashed of the separation of Dig Dill Hart hero of a thousand western dime novel scenarios, and Winifred westover, his bride of a few months ago. And Winifred shatters the heroic conception of Uitr Hill by relatmir how he be haved like a caveman, knocking her down and dragging her about the rooms by the hair of her he.ul. Verily, one by ,oni', out- idols are revealing their feet of clay. Astoria Hudget. there would bo no draw, the cost of construction would be mater ially reduced, as well as the maintaiuance. If it Is up to the County Commissioners, let us have it on thu ballot at the No vember election. It will not be long until it will be necessary to construct a Hew ferry boat if the bridge is not built, and this sav ing together with the cost of op- ertiou would go far toward pay ing the interest on thu bonds. Certain it is that the people at tending the 1025 Pair should have the pleasure of. traveling over a high bridge at St. Johns. A fellow's best girl may not care much about the future, but it seems as if she is always quite ready for the present. Ex.

Furniture Store OBSERVATIONS (By our Unobserved Observer) Yu mcrrie hop pickers nre now wending their way southward seeking henlth, wealth nnd hap piness. St. Johns is not a good place for pessimists, and yet it is the very best place for anyone who wants to worry a lot and build a house on it. Piles of sand, gravel and luin- her do not add to the attractive ness of the Ntrcets. but they furn ish proof that we are returning to normalcy in a way that is very sutislactory. Tho number of nutomobiles and trucks carried across the river daily by the St. Johns ferry is aiii'in'iaiug nun nimcaics a sun stautial increase in business ac tivity. A great many of our city dwellers are starting on their va cation trips this week. Some are going to the coast, while others will seek rest "far from the mad ding crowd's ignoble strife" by sojourning for a few days among tho mountains. When will the high bridge be built? This finest ion asks itself continually and it may not be easily answered, and yet if tho people of the lower peniisula will but pull together, puttintr enerirv nnd hopefulness into the effort, tho great structure that will span the Willamette river at. St .Johns may soon begin to rise. The great benefits that come to a communi ty nre usually secured through persistent effort intelligently di rected.
