Community Club Notes
To the editor: At n recent
meeting o the advisory council
of the St. Johns Community
Club 'it was decided to request
the use of thelleview for bringing
before the community the worh
of the Club, its aims and its pos
sibihties. We would like to re
view what has already been ac
complished by the Club, to tell
what other clubs are doing in
Portland and elsewhere, to hui.
gest some things that may be
done in the future, and to inaugu
rate a campaign for a member
ship of at lr-ast one thousand
wiui which to start tiic year
1923. It is not the purposo of
tho Club to interfere with or su
persede any church, fraternal, so
cial or ctviu organ izatfonjj it
merely otters a place and oppor
tunity for a common meeting
point in all matters of our public
welfare. "We believe that the
Club deserves not only the ap
proval and good will of the citi
zens of St. JohtiB, but also the ac
tivo support and membership of
each one. Therefore, during the
next two months wo wish,through
the Review, to submit for earnest
consideration the work, aim and
place of the Club in the commu
nity. Respectfully submitted,
Tho Advisory Council, by W. T.
i Fletcher, Vice President.
(The Review will gladly give as
"much space as possible for this
' purpose ond we know the Review
rcadent will look forward with
much interest to these eontribu
tions. Editor).

Reports Many Lots Sold
Since the Frank L. McGuire
organization took over four addi
tions in the peninsula district
less than three months ago, more
than 4(H) lots have been sold
iMany of the purchasers already
iavo started the erection of
.tomes. These properties are oil
served by street ear lines and arc
near the George grammar school
and the new Roosevelt high
school, in the East St. Johns dis
trict. Many of the lots arc on
paved streets and have water and
gas connections. One of the
properties is a liquidation sale
and, according to Mr. McQuirc,
the lots are being offered at
about one-half their actual value.
"On the peninsula arc located
most of Portland's industrial
plants, which are turning out nt
the present time products of a
total value of about $125,000,000
a year, said Mr. McQuirc. "Be
cause of splendid rail and water
shipping facilities this district is
destined to become one of the
great industrial centers of the
Pacific coast. For this' reason the
peninsula district is bound to at
tract thousands of persons who
will be employed permanently
and it will build up at a rapid
rate. An investment in real es
tate in this district today, espe
chilly at the low prices now ob
turning, is bound to be sound.
During the past few months
scores of new homes have been
built in the district and many
more are being planned." Ore-

The Burnslde Bridge
The proposed new Hurnside
bridge is to be !)0 feet wide and
having a grade of not over four
per cent and thoroughly modern
in every particular. The posi
tion of the bridge in probably the
best for the reason that thu dm
timet crossing the river is short,
tin high bank on the east .side
enables the approach to bo plac
ed over all railroad tracks and
other trnflle, and the grade will
be only four per cent. Tho bridge
will be high enough to permit all
ordinary river boats to pass tin
dor without interference.
The bridge is t be constructed
according to City Engineer
tiiiiirgaard's water front plan,
and has been approved by state,
county, and city oillcials, our
planning commission and various
clubs, civic and labor organiza
tions. The position of this bridge en
ables approaches to bo built, and
these approaches have been ar
ranged for. On the cast side of
the river an approach extends
from Couch street over the
tntchs, joining the main bridge
near the water lino, and this ap
proach will bo (50 foot in width
the full width of a street. A sim
ilar approach will probably Ik
run into Aiikony street on tho
east side, while on the west side
of the river an approach is pro
vided for Couch street, and vehi
cles can enter the bridge down
I'lirusidt along Second street and
along VivA street.
This bridge is to bo placed over
the natural and logical bridge
street of this city a strocl that
drains vast areas on the cast
side of tho river as well as the
west side, and tho only at root
running entirely oast and west
through our city. Before the
present pnrtial closing or order
restricting trallic on tho present
Murusidc bridge was placed into
oll'eet, statistics of travel were
made by tho oily every month,
and for yon in those statistics
showed that tho bridge carried
more and heavier travel than any
oilier bridge crossing I ho river.
The now bridge will fill the ur
gent need for a bridge enabling
general traflle to cross the river.
The approaches on the west side
of tho Broadway and steel bridge
are very steep, so that horse lad
en vehicles and heavy trucks liud
great dilllculty in crossing, and
tin bridgs to the south arc old
and unlikely to stand heavy traf
lle and are rapidly becoming un
lit for use.
