A NEW GIVEAWAY: YOUR
SOCIAL SECURITY FUND!
Our Bid On A Future
Bold strokes have been made in recent years in North
Santiam Canyon road-building. The building of Detroit
and Big Cliff dams was made vastly easier by the broad
new highway that sweeps beside them. Where once rail
roads were the artery to pioneer moves, now broad high
ways lead the way.
Fine roads link Mill City to the big Willamette valley.
The homes of Mill City’s citizens deserve spots beside
streets of like nature. Wide, dry and smooth streets in
