FLOOD STAGE IS
Bureau Does Not Believe
Willamette Will Rise to
1 Dangerous Level
There is little danger of the
Willamette river rising to the
flood stage : at this time unless
there is a continuation of very
heavy rainfall. The rapid rise of
two days ago has abated to a great
extent and although a rise is still
being recorded, it Is not expected
to be out of the ordinary, accord
ing to advice from Clarence Oliver
of the local; branch of the U. S.
weather bureau. ' ;
The Santiam river is high but
has not affected the Willamette,
which was recorded . at 12.8 feet
late last night. , It is said that
a height of 20 feet is necessary to
flood the lowlands, and the local
bureau does not expect this. Re
ports are received regularly from
other bureaus in the vicinity, and
anyone anxious about an abrupt
rise may receive advice by calling
Clarence Oliver, either at 1074 or
noon Friday and rejected the of
fer for the building. Later they
reconsidered the proposition and
the acceptance followed, i '.
Immediately - upon selling the
building word was broadcast that
as the remaining $14,000 due to
fill the quota of $200,000 had
been underwritten by the U mem
bers of the building campaign
committee, and that all pledges
were binding. Special letters are
being written to all subscribers to
the fund today. .
No time is being lost in getting
the new building under way, and
a committee consisting of Paul
Wallace, T. A. Livesley, Tom B.
Kay, B. C. Miles and Curtis Cross
was named to take charge of the
building plans. These plans have
not sufficiently matured for the
committee to set a date to adver
tise for bids on the construction
pf the new building. , In order to
complete the building within the
contemplated ' time it is expected
that the preliminary business will
be carried on speedily and actual
construction begun as soon as the
weather permits. I F
