"For the Good of the Community." That's the slogan of an Improve ment Association lately organized among the residents of a certain dis trict in Wenatchee. They live in that part of town one block either side of Washington avenue, west from D street and comprising a part of the Fair and Grandview additions. They call themselves "The Fairview- Grandview Improvement Association, and" will wage relentless war on rub bish heaps, unpainted outhouses and unclean alleys. The members of the association will work in harmony in securing better conditions in their community. They will agree on what manner of shade tree planting shall be adopted, so that trees of the same class may grow up uniformly. Sidewalks are to be properly built and well cared for. The farmers themselves have al ready graveled Washington avenue and it is now one of the best high ways in the community, zjt. Gil christ, who owns considerable prop erty on this thoroughfare, is prepar ing to widen the same by turning over to the public a strip of hhs land worth several hundred dollars. A meeting of the citizens of the district is called for Saturday night, to meet at the residence of A. N. Corbin at-7:30. A permanent organ ization of the Improvement associa tion will be effected at that time, and officers will be chosen. It is thought that women may be admit ted to membership in the association.
