fiTort tho Issuance of mora bond to
build tho Auditorium with rortland of

"My policy. said Mayor Rushlight
"Is that public fund hould be spent
Judiciously In vry mm. The Audi

mooch for a flrst-clas building-. suffi
cient to accommodate the cltlsens not
of today alone, but of IS yoara from

"Forsonally I favor iroinir to tho peo

mora bond of sufficient amount to

M' appropriated for the butldlnjr
will not be eipended for an Auditorium
which will be Inadequate In a few
yeara It la a question which ahould
be vtren careful consideration by tha
Auditorium commission. It la much
better to take a little time In selecting
the location and then construct a build
Ins; which will meet the needa Spend
ing the money Judicially ln this caea
means looklns: to the future.
-1 believe that If It came to a vote
tho people would recommend a bulldlns;
of rood slae and In a location natural
ly fitted to the Portland of tha future.
"personally, of all the sttea sub
mitted for consideration I think the
old Eiposltloo building site Is the
best adapted to the purpoaea Having
areas to the various atreeta. Including
Kumslda. Washington. Morrison. Chap
man and tho others, there would be no
congestion of traffic during big gather

mitted to stand at the In tersectlona To
have this site the city may have to
add ISOO.OO or $.100,001) expense to the

be a wlsa Investment.
