shore of a great inland lake. The town promises to become a popu

lies and tourists, who will wish to spend the summer months here.
The opportunity for a fair profit on a comparatively small
investment never apperaed better. Individuals and corporations
seeking investments should be invited to investigate conditions
which obtain in Cascade Locks.
Houses built for rental purposes do not need to be of an ex
pensive type. They could be erected at small cost. Outside capital
is needed to finance the building. Every means should be made
to attract it to Cascade Locks immediately.
President M eyer asked that the
question of procuring police protec

a committee which the Active club
had sent to Hood River.
