For the diversified needs and ac
tivities of a city only a Chamber of
Commerce can epeak.
When it comes to a presentation of
the common needs and interests of a
state, the duty devolves upon a state
chamber of commerce.
Next comes a province to present
the needs of the west there must be
a -western federation that can urge
the needs of any part of the west
with the assurance that the entire
west is behind it.
These were salient points in talks
made before the Oregon State Cham

400 Portland business men listened to
the aims, the ideals, the hopes and
achievements of the state chamber.
