President Coolidge Urges Observance
Of International Golden Rule Sunday
When a community can glorify
such a mundane institution as a sew
er through the clever publicity o f its
community club, we must admit that
the club is working to a 100 per
cent! efficiency. Such was the case at
Milwaukie last Saturday night when
.350 members of the various com
munity clubs o f Clackamas county
met in the beautiful new high
school building and enjoyed the
whole evening from supper to late
adjournment. It is now the “ Sewer
that makes Milwaukie Famous.”
The meeting marked the formal
opening o f the new county bridge

Judge H. E. Cross told o f the de
cision to build the bridge and widen
the road, the work having been done
at an approximate cost o f $25,000.
In the same connection Judge Cross
stated that during the past six years
eight major bridges have been con
structed, and that eight more are
ready to go and must be rebuilt dur- r
ing the next few years. In making

LO G A N B E R R Y NEEDS BOOSTING
Those in the fruit game who have
remained more or less loyal to the
loganberry will be pleased to know
| of the large increase in shipments
j this season o f canned “ logans” to
I the United Kingdom. Figures of the
| Port of Portland for the first eight
months o f this year showed that
189,280 cases valued at $720,4468
were sent out from this one port to
Great Britain. This was 24,000
more cases than were exported to
that country in 12 months last year.
/A natural deduction is that the
English people make much use of
canned loganberries in preparing
jam, for the consumption o f which
they are noted. Whether this is the
use to which the fruit is put or not
is of no great consequence. The point
of interest is the fact that this
splendid and too little known fruit
is winning wider recognition. Tho
loganberry deserves far wider dis
tribution than it has ever obtained,
it merits advertising and much of it.
The loganberry’s friends know th
mistakes that caused its downfall
They were purely the mistakes of
men and not of the fruit. The “ lo-
gan” has a real field of its own. That
field is a large and virtually unfilled
one. From the sound position it now
carries this berry might be advanced
to wide popularity. We say the
friends of the loganberry are miss-
...g a bet in not uniting to make its
merits known. It is one of those
.are classes o f foods which bring re
peat orders from those who try them.
