Why should the chief executive of ficer of the United States be expected to stand for hours shaking hands with a mob? ----------oOo---------- ESTACADA LAKE AN ASSET “ The development of Estacada Lake district as now being undertaken means a lot to the people of Estacada, whether they know it or not,” said Fred L. Proctor of Sandy while viewing the park Tuesday afternoon. A large number of cottages have already been built on lots sold last year, and it is known that a iarge number are to be erected this spring. Further development of the pro perty on the west side of the river is expected to start within a short time. Mr. Proctor knows what the tourist business has meant to Sandy, and also the business coming to his town by reason of the summer cottages having been built along the Loop highway in the vicinity of Sandy. The owners of the cottages as a rule have money to spend and this class of business is more to be desired than the tour ists who travel the main highways. ----------oOo---------- CHICAGO COMPARATIVELY SAFE CITY Chicago seems to have it all over some cities of the country in number of homicides, regardless of all the jokes that are cracked about the wicked city with its ma chine-gun-armed underworld. Figures for 1028 recently made public, covering 136 cities and 36,000,000 people indicate an average homicide rate of 10.2 per 100,000 persons. Memphis leads in kill ings, with 60.5 per 100,000, while the rate for Los Ange les was 4.7. Quite a number of Southern cities were over 30, while Chicago’s rate was only 15.8. New York was far below the country’s average, being only 6.7 per 100,000 inhabitants. It is estimated that in the whole United States there were 12,000 homicides in 1928, while probably less than 200 killers were executed. -oOo Washington society will probably settle down to nor malcy again, now that Mrs. Gann is to be extended the same courtesies as if she were the wife, instead of sister, o f Vice President Curtis. However, this matter probably furnishes the league of nations supporters some degree of satisfaction. The affair was finally satisfactorily ad justed by European diplomats. ---------- oOo---------- More than fifteen billion dollars o f American money are loaned to foreign countries. Yet, in our own country- are millions that could not borrow $100 from these peoplo who will trust people they have never seen.

Furniture Exchange The building committee took a trip over the Loop highway last week to view some o f the log buildings erected by Lenz Brothers of Sandy, who are submitting plans and specifi cations for the Legion building in Es tacada. They seem pretty well sold on the leg house idea, and reports from the Portland Telegram, which is interesting itself in the new build ing and is donating a part o f the lots, indicate that this type of building wou'd be highly approved by them. The Auxiliary has increased its membership by several within the last weeks, which is gratifying to the members o f the post. The ladies have shown in every possible way their willingness to co-operate with the post, and are entitled to at least half the credit for the success of Carl Douglass post. More power to them! Next Monday evening is the date o f the monthly social meeting o f the two organizations. Cards will probably be mailed out calling at tention to the meeting. It is likely that all members o f the post read this column each week, and that in the future it will be unnecessary to go to the expense of sending out cards for each meeting. Legionnaires are urged to send in items o f interest for this column.
