Improvement of. the waterfront dis
trict, from Glisan street to Jefferson

and report its recommendations."'

man Ulaas," and I will try to see that
all sections are directly represented. '
' The Laureaard plans for the uroDoned
improvement were displayed at this
meeting, and City Engineer Laurgaard
was called in to explain their provisions
"r-the centralizing of suburban transpor
tation terminals in this district, removal
of lines-of street cars from Fourth street
, to Front street, erection of warehousing,
central passenger station : and public
market spaces. -
Commissioner. Bacbur. In his prelimin
ary address, reviewed the history of the
district, showing how It had receeded
from the position of being the very cen
ter of business activities in Portland to
a secondary position," and the consequent
depreciation in values. He declared that
there is a well-organized movement to
draw the business fco'rthWard to ' the
Peninsula district and North Portland
and urged that property owners of the
down town waterfront district must be
stir themselves - and provide adequate
modem facilities for modern business or
their properties would continue to de
preciate in value.
PRIVATE ACTIOJT URGED
"The Laargaard plan." said Barbur.
"contemplated the city taking over. these
.properties, under a bond issue, and
carrying on the proposed development,
but I feel certain such a measure would
. not be approved by the voters of Port
land, and that the project either that
. of Laurgaard or some other on similar
. lines must be carried through by pri
vate enterprise If this property. !s to be
siamnzea in value and usefulness.
This is the age of cooperation. NO
one individual can. carry through this
, great enterprise, but an organization of
tne property owners can do it. By pool
ing your interests, you will be able to
finance the project and put it Into exe-i
cution. The city would be glad to lease
a portion of the lands for a public mar
ket. ... . . t
MARKET IS SUCCESS -
"The public market has proved Its
usefulness and I feel certain that it will
remain a permanent institution in Port-,
land., The railroads have indicated their
willingness to make use of the proposed
terminal and to move their tracks to
Front street. Business concerns are
ready to make leases If the proper
facilities are provided.
"We cannot afford to say 20 years
from now as we look at this district:
There's where Portland was that's old
Portland.' We can modernize this dis
trict and make It a humming center of
business. It can be done and" you can
". bring back to the district what justly
belongs to it but It must be a com
munity upbuilding of that particular dis
trict and there must be the closest cooperation.1

make-up of the girls. Kach of the boys
wrote caustic comments about the girls
thort-skirts, hair over; ears, powdered
and painted faces and the like.
These answers were read to the girls
by Miss Cottrell Wednesday -afternoon,
with the result that about 50 of the fair
ones, in order to rebuke their masculine
critics, came ito school Thursday
dressed their plainest, both as to odd and
old-fashioned clothing and facial make
up, hair brushed back from their ears,
no powder, paint or lip rouge, long

'Not to be outdone, the boys, who. had
been tipped off Wednesday to what the
girls' plans were to be,; also appeared
at school Thursday in the plainest ana

Board of Health
Will Make Charge
For Babied Vaccine
Rabies vaclne will no longer be free,
the state board of health has decided.
This action has been taken- because of
the refusal of the hygienic board to fur
nish the vaccine and the Inability of the
state board to buy it from commercial
sources, f ?
Counties sending for vaccine will be
required to pay for it, which charge will
be passed on to the patient, unless he is
Indigent.'.' -'' ' " "
Work is being outlined with the bureau
of nurses whereby the nurses will be util
ized by the state board -to a certain ex

.and restaurants in localities where they
may be sent out on other duties. ,
Plans are being made, as a measure
of economy, to consolidate the laboratories

New Institution Is
Urged for Children
With Social Disease
With the exception of the XouIse home,
which is already full, no. institution in
Portland is prepared to treat Juvenile
cases of social disease, declared State
Health Officer Strieker Thursday. He
said the only solution Is the creation of a
state, city or county Institution, which
might be run in connection .with the Ce
dars, where patients could be taken care
of separately. Strieker was discussing
a conference held earlier . in ' the week
with public welfare organization repre
sentatives, recently appointed by Judge
Jacob Kanzler. j,' .. -,r: .. .... i
Pr Strieker's report to the conference
committee was based upon investigation
of all the institutions in the city, none of
which he .found prepared to take care of
active cases. Dr. Strieker believes it is
a matter for the government to consider,
and not for charitable or semi-charitable
Institutions, lie recommended that a
full time physician be employed to treat
these cases. . - .- ; '-,- I . '
The state board of health has taken
action that the Cedars shall be super

on foot, according to Mrs. C. C Van
Orsdall, who has Just returned from a
visit to the California Home of i the
Neighbors of Woodcraft, to remove the
general headquarters of the organization
from Portland to Riverside, Cal. "As an
Oregonlan and a resident of Portland,"

favor of the move, but there Is some

for such a plan. - ; . ; ;.
"The location of the organization head
quarters here in 1905 has brought a very
valuable business asset to Portland, ac
cording to a report made of its business
activities. The banking business alone
brings to the city annually close to a
million dollars. In the safety deposit
boxes of the organization over $3,000,000
worth of municipal securities are stored.

of the order- for several months of this
situation," she said, "but have had no
intention or wish to make this a publio
matter. I would appreciate all the moral
