announces that immediate deliveries

the week from a meeting at the Port
land branch o f the Ford Motor com
pany with the news that the branch
is now under large production. Be
ginning Monday the branch will build
55 cars and trucks a day.
This, Mr. Cooke says, will insure
dealers in this territory o f being able
to make immediate deliveries. The
Cooke Motor company is now receiv
ing two cars per week, and is now
able to fill all orders without delay.
The production schedule at Portland,
he says, includes plenty o f the new
trucks and truck equipment.
The Ford branch at Portland now
employs about three hundred men.
The Detroit factory is shipping large
quantities o f parts and production at
Portland will reach 80 cars per day
in the near future.
Mr. Cooke says that orders placed
now fo r Christmas or January 1 de

all other orders.
CITY WAFER PROBLEM
C H L O R IN A T IO N
SA FE FOR D R IN K IN G
The water problem o f the city o f
Estacada was discussed at length by
the council at the meeting held on
Tuesday evening. The newly elected
mayor and councilmen were also
present and joined in the discussion
o f the one big subject to confront
the city officers follow ing their in
stallation after the first o f the year.
Consensus o f opinion seems to be
that the only possible method of
securing an adequate supply o f pure
water is by drilling a well and in
stalling a pumping plant.
Both the present and new council
are giving the matter serious consid
eration and they have planned to
visit two water systems next Sunday
to get information on pumping plants
in order to decide on what would be
the more practical fo r installation
here, in case that it was decided to
put in a pumping plant.
The cost o f a gravity water sys
tem fo r Estacada seems prohibitive,
according to statements made by
members o f the council. W hile this
would be the the most desirable so
lution o f the problem, the cost of
building a pipe line to a water source
back in the mountains is apparently
too expensive a proposition fo r the
city to undertake.
Even if bonds
can be issued sufficient to build such
a line, the present number o f water
users would not be able to retire
them, it was pointed out.
Marshal Jim Norris states that a
chlorination system has been in
stalled and appears to be working
Some few have com
plained about the peculiar taste of
the water, but apparently but a small
nurabdb o f water users has noticed
it. By this method the water is made
iafe fo r domestic use and the city
vater may be used now without hav-
ng been boiled without danger.
