ll 0 . ... 1 , v r " .6 r if r : i . . J"- Lehgh Park has initial plan Preliminary design for development of Lehigh Park has been approved by a neighborhood committee which has been working with the Albany Parks and Recreation Department on the project. This layout for the 4.8-acre site at the southwest corner of 17th Avenue and Center Street is available for inspection at the parks office in city hall, according to Jim Preston, chairman of the Lehigh neighborhood advisory committee. The parks department has $20,000 available for development through a federal parks grant. Bidding for the work is expected in mid-July. The Salem architectural firm of William K. Riesland and Associates now is completing the working drawings for park improvements. Lehigh area citizens have been working toward a park for more than 12 years. ...... Let me tell ya! Reunion time .'hears for grads Reunion time is rolling around fast. .Come Sunday we'll be in the midst of our annual Albany High School get-together, in the cafetorium of West Albany High School. Folks better had start getting their jaws unhinged to carry on with all the "yakking" that will prevail! No, I'm not going into the business about the weather. Who cares what it will be like Sunday, as we all will be under shelter when the classes of 1908 through 1928 gather. From what I hear folks coming from all around. More detail on that later. Yep, I had to get back into the bound file of the Albany Democrat. On Dec. 8, 1922 a bold, black headline across the top of the paper had this to say : "Astoria is swept by blaze." Underneath that "screamer" another Headline in smaller type stated, "Entire business district is wiped out when 30 blocks of buildings are destroyed." And beneath that two-column one was another: "Oregon's worst conflagration in history inflicts damage ranging between $10 million and $13 millions and causes two deaths. It was announced frame buildings cause finest blocks to burn. Fire in restaurant was the cause of the initial blaze." one man died of a heart attack and another man hung himself. The Astorian newspaper, which recently had moved into a new concrete one-story building, saw its building go up in fire. Banks, lodge building, car establishments and all stores in the area went up in flames. The story added that most of the loss was believed to be covered by insurance. Astoria was Wallace C. Eakin's native city and it gave him many a twinge. He then " was working on the Albany Democrat. I was off at the University, of Oregon in Eugene, and there were many IANTHE SMITH Staff Writer Albany Democrat-Herald they had to buy lights and come around and show "de judge." It was an interesting paper, Dec. 8, 1922. 1 read where Earl Stewart and Harlan Rohrbough were planning on "Scooting the Willamette River's placid surface" in their canoes made by their own hands in the manual training department at Albany High School. W.H. Hudson was their instructor, and he had received plans for the boys' venture from a reliable eastern firm. Linn continues flood disaster relief $ drive About 14 per cent of the goal to help disaster relief work for South Dakota flood victims has been received by the Linn County chapter of the American Red Cross. Carol Davis, executive secretary, said about 10 contributions totaling $168 have been received. The county's share in the relief work is $1,189. Contributions may be sent to the chapter office, 425 W. Third Ave. The office has handled inquiries about the health and-welfare of persons in the disaster area. Several were about mid-valley families vacationing in the Rapid City-Black' Hills vicinity. Man arrested for shoplifting Michael Floyd Middleton, 20, 127 Williams St., Lebanon, is in the Albany jail on a charge of shoplifting. Bail was Bet at $205. Middleton was apprehended by security personnel at Payless' drugstore, 300 W. Second Ave. He allegedly failed to pay for a bottle of antihistamine tablets. Two men are in Linn County jail on charges of criminal trespass. Peter Howard Denton, 31, of Cambridge, Mass. and Saul David Levine, 34, of Boston, Mass. were arrested early this morning by Linn County's sheriff's deputies. Planners ponder Lebanon's new zone ordinance LEBANON City planning commissioners here are having second thoughts about density provisions for multiple-family developments as outlined in a three-month-ad zoning ordinance. Planners agreed Monday a meeting should be held with city councilmen to discuss altering the new provisions for densities. The city's ordinance, adopted in March, sets out densities of 1,250 square feet as "high" density. Suggestions for change came in the face of several requests for building of duplexes and apartments on lots now zoned single-residential. Another factor is recent controversy over the 40-unit Coe apartment complex at North Main and Morton streets. Don Driscoll, city planner, estimates the density of that structure would be 29 units (1,500 square feet each) per acre of the property. While the ordinance says that would be "medium" density, Driscoll agreed it in fact would be high for that property. Albany Bcmocrat-forolD Tuesday, June 20, 1972, Page 5 He said he and Linn County's planner, Richard Rauber, agree densities more than 29 units per acre would be a mistake. Rauber provided much of the ordinance text used in the new ordinance. Planners agreed to meet with the council at 7:30 p.m. Monday if the council agrees to the session. In other business, planners gave tentative okay to a proposed restaurant-motel-apartment complex at Russell Drive and1 Highway 20. Developers are Juhn Fulton of Interstate Realty and Myron Kauffman, both of Albany, The planners' blessing, however, is contingent on annexation of the four-acre parcel to the city and on presentation of an acceptable final plat to the commission and the council. Bryant Park's book meetings starttonight The first of three book discussions for young adults takes place at 7:30 tonight at Bryant Park. The group will meet northwest of the boat ramp. Gary Hunt, assistant to Albany's city manager, will moderate discussion of "To Be Young, Gifted and Black" by Lorraine Hansberry. , The Albany Public Library program is coordinated by Mary Shreve. Discussions are open to the public and those attending need not have read the books being discussed. Other discussions this summer are "Siddhartha" by Hermann Hesse, moderated by George Bikman, Albany businessman, July 20; and Eugene O'Neill's play, "Long Day's Journey into Night," with Robert Stalick, Albany Union High School District administrator, as moderator.

In the same paper I also read that Albany's bicyclists were told not to ride bicycles at night without lights. A number of boys were picked up by traffic officer Ellsworth Lillard and taken before D.H. Bodine, city recorder and judge. The boys were given great admonishments by Judge Bodine not to ride bicycles after dusk without lights. I read a list of the boys who were admonished, and I thought: "Tsk, tsk, Tsk."
