Protest Against Proposed. Tourist
Camp In Alameda Section.
Leads to Decision.
Before the city eonncil win author

of land to be used as an automobile
camp site, residents of the district in
which the park is proposed will get
the opportunity to appear before the
This was the definite decision made
by Mayor Baker yesterday, in connec
tion with the protests filed by resi
dents of the Alameda district, who are
opposed to the establishment of an
automobile tourist park at East Thirty-third
and Mason streets, as is pro
posed by City Commissioner Pier.
"Although I have not yet investi
gated the proposed site in the Ala
meda section, I am inclined to believe
that It would not be a practical selec
tion," said Mayor Baker. "An auto
mobile camp site should be located on
a main traveled highway, so that It
can be located without difficulty by
"Portland people have difficulty In
locating buildings in Alameda, espe
cially after dark, because of the wind
ing roadways In the district. It would
be almost impossible for a stranger to
locate an automobile park site In this
district without a special guide."
Three petitions bearing the names
of more than 200 property owners in
the Alameda section, protesting
against the establishment of the park
In the district, was referred to the city
council by Mayor Baker.
In addition to the claim by the Ala
meda residents that the proposed site
Is far removed from any of the tourist
highways, protest also is made on
the basis that the district Is a restrict
ed one. In which nothing but homes
thus far have been permitted, and a
public automobile park established at
East Thirty-third and Mason would,
in the opinion of the petitioners, drop

HERE'S Truth in the Trite Saying, that "success inspires to greater effort"
and in this commercial era when news print is alive with heroic tales of price
cutting on first one line and then another, it is not out of place for an organ
ization of extensive scope and sincere purpose to keep before its patrons its
service to them in point of economy.
During the Past Three Years
when the prices of all commodities were constantly soaring, the policy of our company is
now history how we steadfastly withstood the temptation of easy money how we con
stantly retailed merchandise at less than replacement value how we, when it became im
perative to raise a price, shaved our already small margin of profit; gladly contenting
ourselves with less all these facts are now common knowledge among our thousands
of customers in the 297 communities which we serve.
The Inevitable Price Recession Has Started.
We now enter the Reconstruction Period one of more or less uncertainty, yet one
which need not necessarily be fraught with great danger.
That it will be gradual and cover a period of several months is the concensus of
opinion in best-informed circles. In a way, this is commendable. That it should be other
wise could mean but one thing panic with its resultant crippling of all industry, both
labor and capital.
Our Modern Merchandising Practices
place us, at this time, among the few institutions in this country who are in a position to
give their patrons IMMEDIATE and FULL benefit of every price decline. As in the past
we were the last to raise a price, so now we are among the foremost to pass the thrice
welcome reductions on to the public
We A re Merchants, Not Speculators,
hence we are not burdened with large stocks of merchandise purchased at peak prices.
Our warehouses are the shelves in our stores. We believe in quick turnovers and small
- profits, relying on volume for our reimbursement. We do not believe in the "sale" meth
od to lure customers into our stores. So our slogan: "We never hold a sale."
We Offer a Timely Warning
The wholesale market is flooded with a deluge of inferior merchandise which is being
offered at almost your own price. This is not such merchandise as we desire to sell or
as you, knowingly, will want to buy. We suggest that you, as much as possible, confine
your patronage to firms whose standing and past practices preclude possible disappoint
ment to you in this respect.
