The passing of the Oregon Brick & Tile Company into history is noted by the anouncement elsewhere that the buildings are. to oe wrecked and the lumber sold out at a very low rate. The story of the founding of the company rivals the tales of Wal lingford. Its promises were marvel ou3, its prospects (on paper) were of the most encouraging character, but it was never put on a practical basis. At a time when the tendency of the builders was away from, rather' than toward brick, this company planned a plant which if worked to capacity, would have supplied the states of Or egon, Washington and Idaho with all brick and tile needed without help of any sort from the many local factor ies, and still have left a large and unsorted supply for export. Yet it was so planned and laid out that it was only on capacity production' that it could have been profitably, oper ated. "i"-f'!v" '."..;':'.';..':.

Doubtless it has had much to do with the well known reputation of Beaverton for conservatism for any plant so con structed is ueyond the possibility of possible operation except tothose who have the vision and the courage, coupled with the requisite capital, to carry out the plans of the original promoters. It was never in any sense, a proposition suited to men with limited capital. , Ladies Enjoy Luncheon.
