mlssloner Baker points out that the
proposal for a 91.770.000 bond Issue
has been devised without adequate In

He says when It can be demonstrated
that a municipal power plant means

Commissioner Baker Is a native Ore

but attended school In California. He
returned to Oregon 27 years ago and,
except for one year spent in Baker
City, he has lived in Portland ever
He Is now completing his second
At the election two years ago he was
high man on the ticket In a field of
about 13 candidates, and his first
choice vote was so heavy that it was
not necessary to oount second-choice
votes for him.
Previous to being City Commissioner
Mr. Baker had served for nine and
one-half years as a member of the old
Portland City Council. He was In the
theatrical business for nearly 22 years.
Mr. Baker started the Baker Stock
Company In the old Baker Theater at
-Third and Yamhill streets In the
In 1914 Mr. Baker was general man'
ager of the very successful Rose Feeti
val of that " year. He was a director

exposition at Nineteenth and Wash
Ington streets. It was very successful

As Commissioner Is "on the Job."
As City Commissioner he has gained
the reputation of being the "man on
the Job" In emergencies. Everybody
remembers, for example, how he took
personal charge of the clearing of the
streets after all traffic had been
blocked by the silver thaw. He had
the streets cleared and traffic normal

Commissioner Baker will make the

To the people of the city of Port
"in announcing my candidacy for
Mayor or the city of Portland. I have
the sanction of a large-nurober of my
friends who took It upon themselves to
circulate petitions requesting that I
make the race.
"The people of this city know from
services rendered in ,the past that I
believe In a 6trictly 'business admin
Btration and the conduct of the affairs
of the city in a manner that will meet
with conscientious approval of the
preater number of the permanent resi
dents of our community.
"If I am elected Mayor, I will be
Mayor in fact as Intended by the char
ter. I will be Mayor of the city and
Mayor of the Council. I will change
control of the different departments
whenever the exigencies noted in the
charter require and stand officially and
personally responsible to the people
for such change.
" Playgrounds Are Favored.
"With the coming of the automobile
our streets, the former playgrounds of
our childhood, have been taken away
irom our cniiareru tor this, among
other reasons, a comprehensive system
of playgrounds and parks is Impera
tive, and I, therefore, pledge myself
to continue my policy of developing
playgrounds, parks and recreation cen
ters for the safety, comfort and health
of our children and our citizens.
, "As was prophetically said more than
a half century ago, Portland is destined
to be the emporium of a great trade.
Jarge cities In the past, during the
progress of their growth, have either
overlooked or neglected to make pro
vision, for the cities that were to be.
As Commissioner of Public Affairs, I
have given especial attention to the fu

continue my efforts in this regard along
all progressive lines.

There is something quite soldier-like in

manufacturer get cheaper power and
the homeowner cheaper light, I- shall
