IT’S CLEANUP TIME
At a special meeting of the city
council, held Tuesday evening,
the councilmen decided that Mon
day, May 8th, should be officially
known as Cleanup Day and, just
to encourage the citizens in this
good work, the city will pay the
expense of hauling away from pri
vate premises all non-combustible
rubbish that is placed in sacks and
left in a convenient place. All rub
bish that can be burned should be
disposed of in this manner, as the
task of taking care of the other
kind is all the council cares to un

President Bushnell of Pacific
University asked, through letter,
that the city furnish either light
or water, or both, free to the col
lege for the next two years, but
the councilmen felt that the city’s
finances were not in condition to
stand the strain, as the request
amounted to practically a gift of
$500 per y e a r . S o m e of the
c- iuncilmen were of the opinion
that they had no right to give
