"It is said that prostitution has exist

to rise and overthrow perpetrators of

The Management of The Rainbow
Invites the Women of Portland to a
Special Reception This Afternoon at 2 to 5
In keeping with the spirit of doing the unusual, which will be the policy of this grill,
we announce an innovation in showing our entire working plant to the women. Neat
ness in equipment is the feature that appeals above all others to the woman who is
dainty in her own home and who appreciates the pains taken to maintain spotlessly
clean kitchens and utensils.
We're decidedly proud of the many modern devices installed in the Rainbow, ,
' which will help us to keep it always immaculate.
Therefore, we announce that this afternoon, from two to five o'clock, w
shall hold a reception for women only.
We ask our critical friends to come and be conducted through the entire es
tablishment, to admire and become familiar with the way things are done be
