CITY FOR MEMBERS
200 Canvassers Will Begin
Drive of Week.
4000 GOAL SET BY CREW
Heads of Public Body Tell of
Good Accomplished and
.Plans for Future.
Backed by conclusive arguments in
favor of the support of the Chamber
of Commerce by business and profes-,
sional men of the city, about 200
members of that organization today
will begin their sweeping campaign
for new members, the drive to last
the remainder of this week. Prepara- !
tory to beginning the actual work of
increasing the membership by more ;
than 4000 within the week, a banquet
was held last evening at the Oregon I

Chamber. , I
Speaking as president of the Cham
ber. H. B. Van Duzer told the cam- 1
paigners that they should experience
no real difficulty in securing as mem

whose names are now on the books
of the Chamber as "prospects."

"Our work this year has been of
more volume than ever before' said
President Van Duzer, "and the pres
ent is not the time to release the
reins. If ever Portland needed a
live, thoroughly wide-awake Chamber
of Commerce it is now. Impress upon
the minds of those to whom you speak
that, in a measure, the prosperity of
the city depends largely upon this
organization. We must increase our
shipping facilities, make bids for east
ern manufacturing concerns who con
template the establishment of
-branches on the coast and be able to
offer attractive inducements to the
tourists who will shortly begin their
annual pilgrimage from the east to

out today with confidence in his mis
sion, E. G. Crawford, vice-president
of the United States National bank
and director of the Chamber, ad
dressed the assemblage. He said that
the Pacific ocean would soon begin to
lure eastern industrial firms to the
coast, here to engage in oriental com
merce, which promises to assume a
commanding position in the commer
cial affairs of the world. Europe is
bankrupt, said Mr. Crawford, and the
United States must depend upon the
eastern nations for a great part of its
commerce. Portland is the distribut
ing point for the entire northwest,
said the speaker.
Growth la Shown.
According to Frank K. Andrews.
Chairman of this year's membership
committee, the membership of the
Chamber of Commerce has grown in
18 months from 1800 members to 3370.
The annual expenditure of the Cham
ber is $168,000 and still more funds
are needed to operate adequately.
Plans are being made to set on foot
a great publicity campaign to tell the
residents of other states the advan
tages Portland possesses in commer
cial opportunity, shipping, climate, lo
cation and living conditions. It was
asserted by the speakers last evening
that several eastern manufacturing
companies had already tentatively
made known their intention to locate
