ROAD NEAR EASTLAKE PARK
DRIVING CLUB IS INTERESTED
Can Be Made One of the Finest Speed.
ways In United States at Slight
Expense— Consent of Coun.
oil la Neeettary
The Los Angeles Driving club has at
last found a road which will, with com
paratlvely slight expense, 'make one of
the finest speedways In the United
States. It is located on the east side of
Eastlake park and Is known as Alham
bra avenue, commencing at the junction
of Mission road. It will be made 100
feet wide and Is about one mile and an
eighth long. When finished the grade
will be nearly level. Realizing that
Kastlake park has become the most
popular Sunday resort in the city, and
wishing to add further to its attrac
tions, the city has been for months
past, and Is now, working on this road.
There Is a north and south entrance
from Eastlaka park to the proposed
speedway. The city has, spent In the
neighborhood of $10,000 In cutting, grad
ing and filling in the avenue. It will
cost about $3000 more to prepare the
road for the speeding of harness horses.
The Los Angeles Driving club intends
to erect an arch at each end of the
speedway and to curb and place com
fortable seats on the sides from start
to finish for the benefit of the public
who have a love for seeing fast horses
perform. It is an ideal location for the
purpose for which it is Intended. There
is no possibility whatever of any acci
dents occurring as a result of streets
crossing this avenue. In this re
spect It ia the only place of the
kind in the city. It is protected
from the wind on the west side 'by
Eastlake park and the bluff which has
been cut through. It is fenced the -full
distance along the east side. The way
the road Is situated it is a perfect wind
brake for, the horses, as they can warm
up and then cool off without catching
Road Easily Reached
It Is one of the most convenient and
accessible locations that the Driving
club could have secured. It can be
reached within fifteen minutes from the
heart of the city.
One of the most enjoyable and popu
lar out-of-door recreations in eastern
cities is to visit the speedway where
the owners of the highest class and
speediest performers in horseflesh clash
In friendly combat to test their nags'
capabilities. One of the events of the
season in New Tork is the annual
speedway parade, when society folk
try to outdo one another in springing
new sensational fancy turnouts.
Los Angeles has now 'placed herself
In line by securing one of the prettiest
roads in the. city for a speedway, and
it will be only a matter of a short time
until this boulevard will be in satis
factory condition. All owners of high
class horses will then have an oppor
tunity to Bhow their fancy turnouts.
Dr. William Dodge, the president of
the Driving club, and Secretary Red
path are both charter members of the
club and have fathered the movement
of securing this strip of road for a
speedway. They have been on the alert
for a suitable speedway for years and
when they saw the great possibilities
of this road they began working in
cessantly with the city officials to
secure permission to finish the remain
ing work and put it in perfect con
dition, and the road will soon be a

However, we desire to say until that time we will continue. to
sell the balance of the present allotment of treasury stock at the
same price — $6. 00 -per share, par value $10.00— that we have been
placing it at heretofore. Having but a limited number of shares

you care to take. If the allotment is exhausted before your sub-
scription reaohes us we will return your money.
