Spokane, the "hub" of the inland em

mittee which will coordinate with the
committees of Spokane, Seattle and Ta
coma In seeking; the solution for devel
opment problems in the reclaiming of
tne z.oou.wq acre arid tract lying along
the Columbia river in Washington.
SEEK FCKDS HERE -
In addition to this, . Spokane wants
Portland to contribute $3000 to a gen
eral fund of (25,000 which will bring
General George Goethala of Panama
canal fame to the Northwest, bo that
he may survey the project and determine
the most feasible method of ; developing
It. Already Washington has contributed
lit. 500 of this fund.
The plea waa made on the basis that
the products from this great area would
pour into Portland. The speakers were
Oeorg A. Phillips, president of the
Chamber of Commerce of Spokane i N.
W. Durham of the Spokane Spoke smazv
Review and chairman of the Columbia
Basin committee, and J. A. Jford, gen

The purpose of the visit to . this city
waa explained by Phillips as follows:
"The development of this vast project,
which urveya show to have j 1,751,000
acre below the 1700-foot level.' involves
