PAVING PROGRAM NOT HALTED
BY REMONSTRANCE BY OWNERS
City OotUtdl to Proceed With Im
provement of Seventeen Blanks
on Methodist Hill
The city will proceed with the im
provement of 17 blocks of highway

it a minority of the property own
ers, filed with the council at its reg
llar meeting Tuesday evening. The
.ity attorney was instructed to draft
an ordinance creating an improve
ment district including the territory
specified in the preliminary resolu
tion and the improvement will be
accomplished with all possible haste.
Owners of over 50 per cent of the
frontage and over 50 per cent of the
total area included in the enlarged
district favor the paving.
Of the total frontage of 12,62.
feet included in the district the own
ers of 6,390 feet petitioned for the
improvement, the owners of 4,980
feet protested to the extent of ask
ing a delay in the contemplated im
provement until such time as prices
again become normal, and the hold
ers of the remaining 1,256 feet of
frontage were noncommital. Fifty
one of the 101 property owners in
the district favor the improvement,
37 signed the remonstrating petition

peared before the council on behalf
of the remonstrators, but the major

The remonstrating petition, ad
dressed to the mayor and city coun
cil, was as follows:
"We, the undersigned residents
and property owners residing on
Methodist hill, anticipating your de
sire and intention to pave and other
wise improve our section of the city,
respectfully request your honorable
body to postpone and defer said im
provements for one and possibly two
years until times become more cer
tain and settled and normal prices
again return. We believe that high
prices are now at the peak and that
another year will see a material re
duction in building costs and that it
Is unwise to improve at this time;
that this section of the city is most
ly populated with working people,
property values do not justify high

financial matters in the immediate
future in the business world are un
certain. For these reasons we re
spectfully express to you the hope
ANNUAL MOCK SALE
Business Men Will Support Enter
prise Launched by Agricultural
The chamber of commerce Tues
day voted its unanimous endorsement
of the annual show and mock sale
of live stock to be conducted Satur
day, May 1, by the agricultural stu
dents of the State College, and
pledged its support to the enter
prise. The organization contracted
for a double page advertisement in
the sales book to be printed and
urged the business men to patronize
the publication liberally. It is be
lieved that the advertising to be se
cured for the sales book will raise
almost sufficient funds to finance the
show and sale. Over 300 students
are interested in the affair and will
participate in the bidding. The col
lege stock will be groomed for the
show by students and a big parade
will precede the mock sale. Prizes
will be offered to the students whose
bidding is most conservative, a val
uation to be placed on each animal
by experts, and trophies will also go
to the students whose assignment
.hows the most careful grooming.
The annual show and sale is ex
pected to bring to Pullman scores of
live stock men from all parts of the
