Forest Grove Commercial Club Being
Organized to Evade the City
A new feature has developed in our
city life. A Club is now organized
oilled the Forest Grove Commercial
Club, whose object is to open club
rooms with a bar attached where the
members can obtain liquid refresh
ments, play games and read the papers
and periodicals. A billiard parlor will
also be opened. Other features will
be added from time to time. The
government liquor license will be paid
semi-annually. These priveleges will
be open to members only as a violat
io n of the city liquor ordinance would
result should it be extended to per
sons other than members. The site
will be the Iron House remodled to
accomodate the club.
The Joke is on Chester

limits of his talents. However he was
not destined to remain an unheard of

Sunday School room which in turn
opens into the auditorium with Flexir
fold doors. The seating capacity of
the main room is about 800 and of
the Sunday School room 175, making
when combined, a room seating 475
people. The building will be heated
by 2 furnaces and ventilated with the
hot air stock. The cost is estimated
to be about $7500.
The Norman style of architecture
will be followed and the view will be
pleasing from all directions.
Two main entrances will face the
east, while south and west exits will add
to the convenience of the church. We
can well be proud of the structure if
built along the lines now adopted.
