WORKING HARD ON FAIR GROUNDS AND AUTOMOBILE CAMP
Of the many activities which the Chamber of Commerce has undertaken, more important ones have not as yet been successfully solved, because many elements enter into the completion of the various measures, and it takes time to work them out in a satisfactory manner.
Of these problems, the two most important are the automobile camp and the county fair grounds. They are in the hands of competent committees, whose recommendations are anxiously awaited by the board of directors so that direct action may be taken whereby these visions may become realities.
Another project which is still in the hands of a committee is one whereby strangers who come to Medford in their cars may be given a well-defined map of tours around the valley which will enable them to see the scenic points which are not directly on the main traveled highways.
The Medford booklet is a completed project in that the manuscript and photographs have been given to the printer, yet credit for having this literature cannot be given until the same has been delivered for actual use.
The camp ground and the county fair ground problems are the most important under takings which the people of this community now desire to see carried through, and for the solution of the questions involved, the Chamber of Commerce directors desire to marshal all available forces and they have therefore, concluded to conduct a membership campaign today and tomorrow.
TO SING IN CONCERT
in MEDFORD DEC. 7
Music lovers in Medford will be pleased to know that Albert Lindquest, whose voice they have often heard reproduced in Edison records will sing at the Presbyterian church Tuesday evening, December 7.
Lenora Allen, soprano and Robert MacDonald, pianist, both well known artists, will assist Mr. Lindquest in presenting a program of exceptional merit.
As soloist with the New York Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic and other similar organizations, Mr. Lindquest has earned his reputation as one of the greatest tenors of the day.
This concert is the second of a series of four Ellison-White Lyceum attractions arranged for by leasing citizens of Medford to fill the need for high class entertainment at a price within reach of all.
It is expected that this concert will surpass the first which was so thoroughly enjoyed by all who heard it.
