Efforts to brtnsr about a settlement

constructed the public auditorium,
and his bondsmen, on the basis of the
report submitted last Saturday by
the arbitration committee appointed
by Mayor liaker, failed yesterday.
Mayor Baker announced at the. out

City Commissioner Blgelow, -who
has xoueht any recognition of the
claim, announced that he was opposed
to either submission of the claims to
the voters or passage of an ordinance
appropriating the amount of the
'you people mast go Into the

addressing Jay Bowerman and Ml. K.
t'rumpacker, attorneys for the bonds
men. "All that has been done Is the
creation of propaganda In favor of
this claim, and the city has no legal
right to consider it."
Commissioner Barbur announced
that ha was willing to pay any legal
bills incurred by the city of Portland
but lns'sted that the attorneys for the
bondsmen had assured members of
the council that they would take the
matter into courts for settlement if
an arbitration committee was ap

"I voted in favor of the arbitration
committee to make it easy for you to

that ho did not suggest a contest over

City Attorney La Roche has ruled
that the city is not legally empow

that even though the voters approved
the claims, the city would still lack
the power to pay the claim.

JAUNT SOUTH IS BEGUN
Gus Holms Doubts if Anyone Will
Believe Trout Ate Eggs
Out of His Hand.
When Baron Munchausen came home
with his tall tales of marvel, the folks
simply wouldn't believe him. And
members of the national part-to-park
highway dedicatory tour, who motored
south from Portland yesterday morn
ing, are sadly confident that their
friends will never credit as veracious
their account of the tame trout of
"They eat out of your hand," said
Gus Holms1, president of the National
Park-to-Park Highway association, a
moment before the caravan took the
road. "I took a salmon egg In, my
fingers curious affairs, salmon eggs
and held it under water at the Bon
neville hatchery, when we were on the
Columbia river highway trip. Flash!
Up dashed a trout and took that
egg. Yes. sir, I fed several in that
manner, but how In the deuce am I
ever going to get the Cody, Wyoming,
fishermen to believe it?"
Party Takes Southern Route.
At 9:30 yesterday morning, having
spent two days in Portland and vicin
ity, guests of the Chamber of Com
merce and the Oregon State Motor
association, the park-to-park caravan
took the southern trail for Crater
Lake national park, halting at Salem
for luncheon and spending the night
at Albany.- All were convinced that
the Portland visit had been one of
the most successful of the tour thus
far, in quickening interest in the na
tional park-to-park highway which
links the 11 western playgrounds,
for a distance of more than 6000 "miles.
President Van Duzer of the Port
land Chamber of Commerce an
nounced that Sydney B. Vincent, di
rector of publicity, had been named
as local delegate to the convention of
the National Park-to-Park Highway
association, set for November 11 in
Denver, when practical steps will be
taken to obtain federal co-operation
in the recognition, improvement and
maintenance of the park-to-park
route. Thorough co-operation on the
part of Portland was assured the of
ficial party by President Van Duzer
and Mayor Baker.
lOOO Fret of Film Taken.
Taken captive by the beauty of the
Columbia river highway, the park-to-park
enthusiasts bore away with
them 1000 feet of film depicting the
scenic thoroughfare. This film will
be shown henceforth throughout the
tour, together with the national park
views carried by the caravan. At the
completion of the tour on November
9. when the caravan will have circled
the loop and returned to Denver, all
western stales with the exception of
Utah and Nevada will have been vis
ited. . - ' '
"Our Portland visit has been an ex
ceptional one," said Gus Holms. "Al
though hearty co-operation has been
extended to us everywhere, and al
ways with a ready welcome, we found
this city more thoroughly and enthu
siastically with us than any other."
"That's so." supplemented O. Van
Wyck, ex-newspaperman and pres
ent representative of the national
park service on the tour. "I was born
the south and have infested the
east. This visit to Oregon convinces
me that all my previous years have
been misspent. When we complete
the tour t am coming back to stay. "
