Estacada’s Broadway, the main
business street o f the city, is now
a thorof are to be proud of, having
been completely graded to with
in eight inches o f the curb line,
the grade having been well roll
ed and smoothed off.
This grade will probably settle
a few inches, after being well
dampened and rolled, following
which, a combination concrete
and crushed rock hard surface
pavement will be constructed, the
work being financed under the
provisions of the Bancroft Bond
The grade has already been es
tablished on Third St. between
Main and Zobrist Sts. and the
work of putting down a boulder
bed is underway, the boulders
being excavated from the 2nd
St. hill road near the Boulevard.
By taking the earth excavated
from the 3rd St. job and using
same to make the Broadway fill
and in turn excavating the 2nd
St. hill road to furnish a founda
tion for the 3rd St. rocked road,
a big economy is being exercised
in the city’s road money.
The work to date has been well
done, with few complaints reg
istered and many local men and
teams obtaining employment.
Already civic pride has been
stimulated by Broadway’s neat
appearance, with several mer
chants making improvements and
much new painting scheduled for

Why We Are Opposing A
Government Armor Plant
To the P eople:
Some people say that the very fact that the Bethlehem Steel Company is so aggressively
fighting the proposal to build a Government armor plant is conclusive proof that the Company
is seeking to assure for itself the "vast profits” derived from private manufacture.
T h e fa c t U th a t a r m o r m a k in g ia th e leant p r o fita b le fe a t u r e o f ste e l m a n u fa c tu r e .
The reason we oppose a Government plant is very simple.
It is this:
Even though there is but little profit in the making of armor, we have invested over
$7,000.00(1 in our armor plant;
Eastern Clackamas is glad to
hear that more hardsurfaced pav
ing is Iteing considered but will
be lots more tickled to learn that
this part o f the county will re
ceive at least a small share o f said
It kind o f goes against the grain
to hear of hardsurfaced paving
being built in the lower end of the
county, with the famous Boring
Hill Road, in the deplorable con
dition it is in. when a small a-
mount o f money will make it

That plant is useless for any other purpose; if a Government plant is built the useful
ness of our plant is destroyed.
It w ould be good business for us to make armor for the G overn
m ent ut any price over and above the actual shop cost, RAT HER
THAN SACRIFICE OUR ENTIRE INVESTMENT.
We do not seek to save big profits: our purpose is very frankly to save our armor
t plant— itself built solely for the use of the Government— from going to the scrap heap.
