nrfess chairmen and others who

given by the editor of the Fed

"Tjong experience Is i the best

Blueprints Show New
Highway Addition Lots
Blue prints are now oh display
In a number of the city; stores,
banks and other public ; places,
showing what the new highway ;
addition On North Capitol street
has to offer In the way of build
ing opportunities. It was a real
landscape gardener's inspiration
to lay this new boulevard into ;
curves instead of straight lines, j
making it One of the most attrac
tive streets in Salem.
While the contract price for ab
stracts for-, the new addition lots
is to be 4 each, they are not
going to cost the buyers that much
above the actual price of the lots.
In figuring? the cost of the prop
erty, an allowance was made for
certain paving that was found
necessary in settling certain other
property claims. This allowance
was made and added to the pur
chase price for the acreage, and
then the lots were priced so as to
cover all these estimated expenses.
It was found, however, that the
paving will cost less than antici
pated, so the surplus will be, ap
plied to the cost of the abstracts.
They expect this paving oves-estl-
mate to pay; fully half of the 944
abstract for each lot.
"Yon will nota that every news
