BERLIN, May 13. A newspaper
of the Independent Socialist party
appeals for the signing of the peace
terms saving that "even if important
changes are brought about by the
negotiations, there remains no choice
but to bow to compulsion and sign
the treaty. Not signing means re
tention of our prisoners of war, oc
cupation of our raw materials, dl9
tricts, blockade, hunger and death."
A very pleasant afternoon was
spent Saturday by a number of ladles
of the city when Mrs. Kipp Van Riper
was hostess to the Leisure Hour Club
at her home on 407 Canby Street.

MANY ARE PLANNED
nldlcatlons of Building Investment
In Klamath Falls This Saon A.
fCrrgate Half Million Dollars Con
tract Let for Fine Structure to
Cofer Brothers. .
Another Indication of the trend ot
business towards Klamath arenas
comes today in the announcement,
through J. F. Magulre. who handled
the negotiations, that P. M. Reldy, of
Long Beach, California, will erect a.
new building at the corner of Seventh
streets and Klamath avenue. The
structure will be of pressed brick on
both sides, of the same construction
as the building of the California-Oregon
Power Company, which It ad
Joins, and will cost In the neighbor
hood of $10,000 when completely fin
ished. Cofer Brothers have already
. been awarded the contract.
When finished it will be occi pled
I by the Link River Electric cimp.i'iv.
which firm has leased the room for
five years The work of ereri'r.' the
building will begin at ,oncp .intl It
xv ill be readv for occupancy p Au
Upwards of a dozen new bulMtugs
are under consideration The aggre
gate investment, if all the plans are
carried out this year, will mount up
to nearly half a million, and this is
only the beginning. The one sreat
handicap so far has been the belief
of so many that prices were comlag
down, but investors are beginning to
realize that this is not going to hap
pen and that they are losing money
while they are waiting far more
than they could possibly save by any
drop in the cost of construction.
There is a big demand for flrstclass
structures and prospective tenants
are offering rents that prove quits
attractive and pay good Interest on
any investment that may be made.
The result is going to be one of the
liveliest periods of building construc
tion ever experienced In this city.
