A SUCCESSFUL vote for the 1925 Exposition in city and state elections
guarantees immediate payrolls for Oregon! The $6,000,000 we invest
will be more than matched by millions from other states, U. S. gov
ernment and foreign nations. This, with other building construction to be re
leased as soon as the Exposition is asured, means fully $50,000,000 in new
buildings between now and 1925.
Practically everybody who earns their livelihood in Oregon will get the ben
efit of this expenditure. An army of skilled and unskilled labor Oregon men
will be employed. Oregon lumber and building materials of all kinds will
be required. It fheans greater payrolls in hundreds of manufacturing plants.
Permanent Prosperity Will Follow
Records of all the great Expositions, measured in terms of building permits, postal receipts,
bank deposits and clearings, show that the cities and states where they were held receiyed
permanent results. David R. Francis, president of the St. Louis Exposition, recent ambassa
dor to Russia, wires, "The world's fair made St. Louis." Business men of San Francisco point
out the tremendous gains which followed 1915. Our own Lewis & Clark Exposition was
the beginning of Oregon's greatest period of growth.
Oregon Pioneer State Needs Population
Do you know there is only one city above 20,000 population in the entire state of Oregon ? Do
you know that California has 22 people to the square mile, Washington 20, and Oregon only
8 ? Yet Oregon was a pioneer state. We let these other states outdistance us mostly by
There can be no better advertising for Oregon than a great World Exposition, because it
will bring millions of people here to see our resources with their own eyes. The cost is
ridiculously low compared with the benefits to be obtained. On a $1000 assessment you will
pay only $9.96 in city and state taxes, spread over three years' time.
Go to the polls Saturday and Vote YES for the
1925 Exposition. Letts show the world that
we believe in our own opportunities. For, if AVE
don't believe in them, WHO ELSE WILL?
