The Council decided to send Mr. Fouil

the city. The city will pay traveling
expenses of $300 for the trip. Mr.

over the auditoriums there, with the
view of getting ideas about cpecial fea
tures. With some modifications the Council
yesterday approved the final prelim

made was in the lower floor arrange
ment. The main auditorium floor, 100

form of a theater, with inclined floor
and fixed seats. The stage will be
raided about four feet.
Provision will be made for a movable
floor, which can be laid completely
over the theater portion of the build
ing, flush with the stage, thus forming
one. .huge room of the lower part of the
1'lpe Organ to Be Provided.
- Arrangements were made to Install
a pipe organ to cost not less than $25,
000. This will be around the prosceni
um arch and will be one of the largest;
and finest instruments in the United
States. The entire building and equip
ment will be paid for from the audi
torium bond tissue.
In going to New York Mr. Fouilhoux
will carry the information to the offi
cial architects that the building is to
be constructed of Oregon materials arl
is to be built with money now avail
able without any extras. The archi
tects will have specific instruction not
to design any building which cannot
be erected within the amount of money
available at present from the bond is
sue of $600,000.

Tiling, the most ancient of all man-made compositions, now occupies a very large place in the
construction of buildings. This industry, though one of the oldest in the world, has only developed
in America within the last 25 years all tiling previous to that time coming, from Europe.
It is a known fact that tiling, manufactured from clay, will outwear marble, steel and wood,
none of the reasons for decay, like crumbling, rot or rest being possible. Tiles that were in existence
as early as 747 B. C, now in the hands of archaeologists, are much the same as those in use today.
The tiling used in our new building is known as white vitreous which means that there is no
known chemical, tool or instrument that can penetrate it. It is impervious to grease, paint, etc.
It is only since our 1905 Fair' that tiling has been generally used in Portland in construction work,
and now Portland is known as one of the largest tile-using cities on the Coast.
