THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23. 1913.
WHY NOT HAVE IT
IN ROCK ISLAND?
Not Necessary to Abandon Tri
City Auto Show Becanse
of Coliseum Fire.
NEW PENSION COMMISSIONER VILL PAY
$153,000,000 TO 815 000 PERSONS IN YEAR
MIGHT USE LOCAL RINK
Armory and Turner Halls Would Do
For Overflow if More Space
heaters fear they will be compelled
to abandon the tri-city automobile
shows, held annually for a number of
years at the Davenport Coliseum, as a
result of the destruction of the build
ing by Ore. The Coliseum, it la cla'-m-ed.
was the only structure available
for the purpose. There hat been tome
talk of erectinc a tilt? tent, at has been
done in other cities for the showing of
the sew models of cars. The difficulty
with this plan lies in the impossibility
cf heating a lent.
A better plan would be to use the
Rock Inland rink, 'which has nearly as
much floor space as the coliseum, and
which can be heated to a fairly com
fortable degree. If there were any
overflow exhibits they could be taken
rare of at Armory and Turner balls,
which are only a block away.
EAST TO rLACK DISPLAYS.
In the coliseum It was necessary to
hoist the exhibits to the second floor.
and considerable time was consumed
ia the operation. The rink is much
better arranged In this respect, for it
-sn be opened at the rear and the ex
hibits can be put In position as fast
they are brought In. Furthermore,
the rink is in a more central place for
trl-city automobile dealers and users
than the Davenport building was, and
the attendance should be at least kept
up to former standards.
A little boosting by Rock Island auto
dealers and others interested might
land the show for the city, and It Is
worth going after, for it always draw
dealers and prospective purchasers
from a large ares.
