HOTEL READr it mm Enlarged $600,000, Eight-Story Graham to Be Opened to Public Monday. Special to Tfe Indinnapoli.n Slnr.) BLOOMINGTON, Feb. 27. Bloomington'a new eijrht-atorv, Graham hotel will be opened to the public next Monday. To Bloomington this will be an event almost as important as the Inauguration of President-elect Hoover will be to the nation. Hotel rooms have been at a premium in Bloomington for several years, as any one attempting to atay over night after a football game can well testify. Preston C. Gilliatt. the builder of this new hotel, has taken good care of the traveling public in his old Graham hotel and his Tourner hotel for the last ten years, but has been greatly handicapped by a shortage of rooms on an average of four nights a week. Bloomington is one of the fastest growing towns in the state and is in excellent business condition today. This is the center of the limestone Industry of the entire country, for about 90 per cent of the. building limestone used is quarried in this district. There are something like seventeen independent companies operating on a full-time basis. Has Largest Furniture Factory. This is also the seat of the largest furniture factory in the world the Showers Brothers Company which now manufacturers a complete line cf medium-priced furniture- Bloomington is also the home of Indiana university, which brings about five thousand students as temporary residents. It is expected that when census figures are published next year that the population of greater Bloomington will not be less than 20,000, which would represent almost a. 100 per cent gain in the last decade. With the building of Indiana university's new stadium and field house there Is now sufficient seating capacity for thousands ot out-of-town visitors at all football and basketball games. The only thing that was lacking was an adequate number of rooms for those coming from a distance. The completion of the new. hotel now fills this long-felt need so that no one need slay away from any of the big sporting events for fear they will be unable to secure lodging for the night. This hotel also makes it possible for the parents of students at the state university to visit with thjir children amid pleasant surroundings more Often. Bought Site Early In 1928. Early in 1928 Mr, Gilliatt purchased from William Graham the site and building of the old Graham hotel for $175,000. One-third of this old building, which was still in very good condition, was wrecked to furnish the its of the new building. A search was then made for ft capable hotel architect and a reliable contractor. Both were found in Indianapolis in the persons of Ross Caldwell, architect for more than sixty hotels in the central states, and Leslie Colvin, one of the leading builders of the state. Financing of the new project was through the City Securities Corporation of Indianapolis through the issuance of of fi per cent, preferred stock and $183,000 of common atock by the newly formed Graham Hotel Realty Company, with Mr. Giaham as president and Mr. Gilliatt as vice president. Plans were immediately drawn for ine of the finest hundred-room hotels 10:30 Orchestra: Organ. 9:30 Entertainers. 10:00 Features; Popular (2 r.ANi houra). i 4,14.3 WKAF.

Several boxing Marching clubs, the political spellbinder and the torchlight parade3 of long ago were revived and reminis-cently reviewed for a moment by "old-timers" of the Columbia Club last night. The occasion was the annual beefsteak dinner given by the club in honor of those who have been members of the organization twenty-five years or more. About fifty of the old members were seated together, and provided a part of the program by chatting among themselves about the "good old days" of political campaigns. Leslie Special Guest, Governor Harry G. Leslie was a special guest. He praised the work of the Columbia Club, paid tribute to the older members and entertained with humorous -stories. Clarence L. Sweeney of Brown county gave a selection of humorous impersonations. Martin Hugg. who spoke on hehalf of the twenty-five-year members, recalled events leading to organization of the Benjamin Harrison Marching Club and formation of the Marion and Columbia clubs. He also reviewed the careers of deceased members of the early Republican organizations who achieved fame in 8:00 Orchestra. Lft help tou.

Optimist About V. S. Mr. Hoover is an optimist about the future of America and this the outlook for the American railroads. Recent discussions as to the power of the interstate commerce commission to adjust, inequalities between different tpgions through the fixing of coal rales are hound to challenge Mr. Hoover's attention, ihough in the main he probably will keep hands off the commission when he has once appointed men in whose judgment and capacity he has absolute confidence. The general expectation now is that Mr. Hoover will give far more attention to the economic abilities nf his prospective appointees to positions that affect business tha he will to purely political phases. Vuile the pressure for political appointments i3 going to be as intense as ever, Mr. Hoover's strength with public opinion arises from his understanding of economic problems. (Copyright, 1929.

Indianapous Atnieuc i-iuo. nv D.vvii) WASHINGTON', Feo. "-'7. -Herbert I Hoover is friendly toward the idea of railway consolidation. Up to now the interstate commerce commission has hesitated to approve any particular plan, while Congress in turn has been inclined to await the action of the commission. Mr. Hoover will have it In his power to reconstitute the interstate commerce commission. At least five vacancies will occur within his administration and he has the opportunity to reappoint those who are disposed to favor consolidation and tn bring in new members who will be inclined, to conform. The railroads themselves have been trying to bring about voluntary consolidation. Four years ago there was more agitation for it than there is today. But with the known interest of Herbert Hoover in the elimination of waste, it is quite probable that some form of consolidation will be. brought about under the Hoover administration if the railroads themselves can agree upon a plan. The policy of Mr. Hoover toward railway transportation is expressed thus in his own words: Enumerates Views. "If I were to attempt to express my personal views of such national policies stripped of secondary considerationsI would enumerate them somewhat in the following terms: "1. Railway service under private ownership in order to secure the driving force of individual initiative in efficency and development. "2. Government regulaton of fair rates and railway finance in order to protect the shipper and to give stability to honest, investment of'sav-ings. "3. Recapture nf excess profits In order to allow rates which will assure operation and service from railways in less favored circumstances yet prevent unjustified profits from any particular railways. "4. The earliest practicable consolidation of the railways into larger systems under conditions of maintained competition in service in order Carrying out a tradition of many years, recitals by eminent artists will be held each Saturday evening of March, in the Vernon Room. The following soloists will KQJU program tonight. The final audition hours and five more will be on the will be held March 14. Preliminary audition winners are Miss Thelma E. Caldwell, Miss Alma Marie Pettijohn, Miss Marguerite appear: to be found any place. The new Abraham Lincoln hotel of Springfield, 111., was used partly as a model together with many novel ideas for the comfort of guests which are original with Mr. and Mrs. Gilliatt and the architect and contractor. Many Features Found. These plans called for an absolutely fireproof eight-story building of reinforced concrete construction with the first two floors of Indiana limestone and the remainder of variegated Brazil face brick with a heavy stone trim. An inspection of the almost completed building recently was a revelation in if many unexpected features. 1 few are (he hotels which are reM built and as finelv furnished as sis one. The dominant tone of architectural treatment throughout is colonial with many of the new colors nicely narmonized. The entrance is from College avenue, th main business street of Bloomington, through wide double doors into a spacious ground floor hall leading into the large banquet room, which will he utilized each week by five luncheon clubs, Rotary, Kiwanis, Exchange, Lions and Stone Club, as tvell as by numerous local and university organizations for banquets and dances. This room is well lighted with crystal chandfliers and candle bracket lights along the walls. The side walls are stenciled over an old rose background, while the ceiling is finished in ivory and fold. Seating Capacity 200. This room must be seen with all the lights aglimmer to be really appreciated. Seating capacity at a banquet is almost two hundred. Immediately off this banquet loom is a ladies rest room and a checkroom? A survey of the lobby floor is well worth while. Here is found the glimpse of the taste in selecting furnishings, draperies and carpets with which Mrs. Gilliatt has been endowed, for in all these lines her word was final. The lounge is removed a couple of steps up from the business lobby with a terazzo floor covered with rich Wilton rugs. There are davenports and occasional chairs of all types and colors in profusion to harmonize with the green and red predominating tones of the decorations. To one side of the lounge is a large writing room with double desks and green upholstered chairs. Sharing the front of the second floor with the lounge is a large, well appointed dining room with tables of various sizes to seat about one hundred and twenty people. Immediately off this main dining room is a smaller private dining room for parties up to eighteen or twenty, which has extension leaf tables of th home type, special china and special silver for special parties. Kitchen Model of Completeness. Through another door is the large kitchen, which is a model in the completeness of its equipment. Few hotels even twice the size of the Graham have as many labor-saving devices and as sanitary a method of preparing food as is found here. Mr. Gilliatt founded his reputation as a good host on his appetizingly prepared meals and now intends even to improve the high standard which he set years ago Guests are conveyed to rooms on high speed elevator of the latest safety design. Arriving upon any floor guests are confronted with a running ice water drinking fountain for their convenience and a fire hose for safety The inside fire stairs also opens onto this elevator hall. this Is an absolutely fireproof building carrying the lowest insurance NEVADA AN0 UTAH 10:00 P.
