' fracture of the leg, cuts about the

The injured were brought to Portland

and taken to St. Vincent's Hospital.
The party had been picnicking up
the Sandy River. They were returning
when the accident occurred. About 150
yards outside the city limits of Trout
dale they met a man driving with a
' horse and cart. The horse appeared
frightened and Mr. Welty, who was
steering the auto, turned to the left
and gave the man the Inside track
en the narrow road.
Auto Turns Over.
In the twilight he apparently thought
- that the grass and weeds on the bank
covered a continuation of the road, for
he drove directly over the bank. The
automobile turned completely over as
It rolled down the ateep embankment,
made another half revolution at the
bottom and lay upside down in the
weeds and brush only a few yards
from the bank of the river.
Mr. Welty and Marian Zollinger
were pinned beneath the car. The
edge of the door lay directly across
Mr. Welty's neck. The child was com

THE WEEK'S NEWS EVENTS WHICH WERE CHOCK FULL OF ACTION APPEALED TO CARTOONIST
BANK WILL ERECT
First National Will Build
in 18 Months.
AVAILABLE SITES CONSIDERED
Structure Likely Will Be Lo
cated Near The Oregonian.
MERGER PLANS COMPLETE
Union With Security Savings and
Trust Company, Soon to ' Take
Place, Will Make Present'
A typical bank building,' designed
exclusively for banking purposes and
costing $1,000,000. will be built by the
First National Bank within the next
IS months in the central business dis
trict. The site nas not been definitely
settled, but it will be In the neighbor
hood of the Oregonian buUding.
Several available sites are being con
sidered, among them properties owned
by the Corbett estate and the Security
Saving & Trust Company, which soon
Is to be consolidated with the First
Corbett Estate Owns Both Banks.
Both banks are controlled largely by
the H. W. Corbett estate and members
of the late Senator Corbett's family.
It is reasonably certain that the new
bank building will rise on property
owned by the Corbett Interests. A site
that has been considered is that at
the southwest corner of Fifth and
Stark streets, occupied by the J. G.
Mack furniture store. Mr. Mack has
an eight-year lease and It is said that
he is unwilling to surrender It pre
vious to Its expiration. The property
at the northwest corner of Fourth and
Alder streets, formerly occupied by the
Louvre grill, also Is being considered.
For a time it was reported that the
First National was planning to erect a
bank and office building to cover .the
entire block occupied by. the Corbett
homestead on Fifth, Yamhill, Sixth and
Salmon streets. This plait has- been
abandoned, however. .
Buflldlns; Plan Decided.
That the First National will erect a
new building has been definitely deter
mined by its directors. Some of the
details, even, have been tentatively ar
ranged. Present plans call for an Imposing
structure of marble and granite, prob
ably 100 feet high, with a dome ceiling
supported by the walls, leaving the In
terior without pillar or post.
The general style of architecture will
resemble that of the new Bank of Cali
fornia In San Francisco.
It is not intended to accommodate
other offices in the new structure with
the possible exception of such that are
directly related to the bank.
Consolidation Plana Complete.
Plans for consolidation of the First
National and the Security Savings &
Trust Company have been completed.
The two Institutions will merge Just as
soon as necessary alterations In prog
ress in the rooms occupied by the Se
curity Bank in the Corbett building are
completed. It was intended first to
effect the union about July 5, but this
is physically impossible, as the altera
tions cannot be completed In that time.
Officers and directors of both the
First National and the Security are
agreed that they will not be able long
to handle the business of the combined
bank in the quarters in the Corbett
building. The Security alone is fre-.
quently crowded during the rush perl-
