jji HE LANE COUNTY NEWS" 2 0,5, , , 7i.x Editor and Manager jL Manage CSL Pawtshlng Association. a W. A. DILL K published SPRING PIELI), OREGON, THURSDA& FEBRUARY 11, 1915 A CHANCE FOR CO-OPERATION. Acommittee of the Springfield' Development Lenguo BoeriboVer an hour Monday afternoon conferring with a com mittee of the Eugene Commercial club on the subject of Joining with Eugene in maintaining a representative of Lane County at the Panama exposition for the next ten months 'to answer questions, about this county.. All the other of the eight counties in the Willamette Valley joint exhibit havo ar ranged through public funds, to keep such representatives at the fair all the time. Lane County did not make such arrangements, and it is' now left to private Initiative to pro vide for this representation. The Eugene Commercial club did not feel like assuming the whole cost of keeping a man at San Francisco estimated to be $1350 for the ten months of the fair, and accordingly addressed letters to all commercial organizations of the coun ty asking co-operation. The Springfield Development League was the first one to respond, asking the Eugene club for a conference on the subject. In times past it had appeared that Eugene had presented her advertising to the disadvant age of Springfield, and it was accordingly thought wise to go carefully into details and learn what the returns would be before promising any assistance. Springfield is interested in the well-being of the county. Springfield wants to get all the advertising out of the Expo sition that it is possible to get How to get this advertising was the problem and so the conference was asked. Spring field wanted to know what Eugene would do in return for Springfield's contribution. At the conference the proof of the official Willamette valley map was shown. On this map the name of one town is in just the same type as that of another, and there is no . thing to indicate that there is any difference in size or com mercial importance. It was furthermore stated that no indi vidual promotion work was to be allowed in the Willamette Valley exhibit. The whole valley goes in together, and each individual article shown will be labeled: "Grown in the Will .amette Valley, Oregon, by " with name and post office. While the committee from Springfield had no authority to bind the League, or any other commercial organization, its members expressed the belief that Eugene offered a fair proposition, and the name of the man suggested for the place gave promise of a fair hearing for the whole county, and for every community in the county. The matter of joining with Eugene in the raising of this fund will be taken up in the League very soon and decided, so that it will be possible to get the Lane County man, if there is to be one, on the ground. Whether' Springfield goes into this plan or not and it would :seem that she should the commercial organizations should provide some means of advertising the town among ' those who are coming west. There are dozens o'f- cities by the name of Springfield, known to thousands and thousands of people. The.;ery name "Springfield" will be familiar to many and will accordingly attract their attention. To capitalize this interest should be the purpose of a carefully planned cam paign. Many of the residents of the other Springfields will Btop off to see their own town's namesake here in the west. ' The only problem is to get our name before them, together with something about ourselves that will attract attention. Lane County, as a large part of the Willamette Valley, will have deep interest in seeing that all visitors learn all they pan about our resources. It is no more than fair that Springfield should join in spreading this information by the means of a well informed representative to be present at the Oregon building, to answer- questions of those attracted by the Willamette Valley exhibit. In addition to this, Springfield ought to outline an ad vertising campaign that will interest travelers to the west, and those expecting to come to the west, so that they will stop off for a personal inspection. Caring for them after they get here ought also to be Included in the plans for'ad vanpement of the town for the coming year. 'Springfield has;, profited In the past by the general ad vertising for Lane county gotten put by other organizations. Now she should get under the burden and, while advancing her own interests, help in promoting the welfare of the whole . county. EATON" WRITES OF , " ' ' LEGISLATIVE WORK Salem, Ore'., Feb. 10. (Special Correspondence to The Lane County News.) This is the 31st day of the legislative session. The business In the House has been slightly advanced since the adjournment Friday, but new matters presented, together with bills coming from the Sen ate, have made it necessary to begin the night sessions, so that a special session has been called tonight for the purpose of con slderine; Senate bills. The Sen- of the delay of the House in con sidering bills- that havo come fromUhe State Senate. Yesterday the House spent from nine o'clock in the morn ing uhtll six o'clock in the even ing on six measures. Five hours of this tjme was'spent on the bill 3 ratifying the lease made to Jason Moore for the Summer and Albert Lakes. This very important mater probably would have been disposed of in half an hour's time had not those who wpre in charge of matters In sisted that the bill be rushed through. A motion made early in the day to make the bill a special order for the next day at ten o'clock would have saved sary ror a rair investigation. While the House passed a rule that ))o appropriation bills should jbe intWMhked; a4r,tho MqtHHhM&aUttlB ap parent that they.-will be Intro-duccd-iip to the-3Gth day of-tho bcssIoh.
