turned from New York, where he went
to tate the rouh preliminary plans

lengthy conference with Mr. Freed

weeks visiting in cities having audi

Plans 1 o Be Harried.
"Before I left New York." said Mr.
Fouilhoux yesterday, "Mr. Freedlander
said he would rush the plans just as
rapidly as possible. He hopes to have
tnem ready to send on in completed
form next month. Incomplete drawings
will bo sent here probably within a few
days for us to look over and show to
Commissioner Baker. These will be
returned for completion.
"I believe work on the building can
be started before January 1 if the City
Commission is able to let the contract.
The making of soundings and the work
of excavating can be started and com
pleted during the Winter, as can also
probably the basement construction.
This will open the way for the com
mencement of the superstructure early
in the Spring. This can bo pushed
along so that the buildinf can be com
pleted next Summer.
Cost Not to Exceed Appropriation.
"After checking over the plans as
adopted by the City Council and taken
by me to New York, Mr. Freedlander
reported that the building could be
erected with the money available for
that purpose. Arrangements have
been made for the use of Oregon mate
rials as much as possible. Samples of
various kinds of materials have been
sent for and tests are being made.
"In my visits to various cities I
found that the building proposed for
Portland embraces the principal fea
tures of most of the successful build
ings of the kind. Our building will be
thoroughly practical. The idea of re
movable partitions and removable floor
ing has been carried out in some other
cities and is successful. During the
six weeks I have been away I have vis
ited Salt Lake City, Denver, Wichita,
Kansas City. St. Louis, Chicago, Mil
waukee, Saginaw. Rochester, New York,
Houston. New Orleans, Los Angeles,
San Francisco and Oakland.
"In making the plans for the build
ing Mr. Freedlander is giving much
attention to details. While I was there
he consulted with Professor Sabine, of
Harvard University, probably the fore
most authority on acoustics in. the
United States. He gave some valuable
advice. A number of other experts
have been asked also for advice."

the other hand there is section 70S9,

the status of an adopted child, to be

But anyway, tomorrow, I will tell you how, for the price of a 10c

Being utterly optimistic wouldn't do for us. We are not radical, we
are very conservative. That is why we are hesitating to decide about
the proposition at once, even though inside of a week 10c would un
questionably become $10 and inside of a year $1,000. And even
