The Hood River News, Hood River, OR., February 13, 1920, page 1


     That plans are now well under way for a big tourist hotel for Hood River and that this hotel will be built this summer is the reassuring news brought here from Portland by C.I. Moody, who is now manager of the sales department of Better Fruit, and who is here arranging for better publicity for Hood River valley. He stated that Miss Marguerite Saloman, up the Portland Chamber of Commerce, assured him early this week, that plans for financing the project are about to be launched and without any question Hood River will have a big tourist hotel this summer or early fall.
     Confirmation of this was forthcoming on Thursday, when a prominent local business man who has been closely associated with the project stated that he had been informed from reliable sources that the committee in Portland which is arranging the finances for the group of tourist hotels which have been planned for Oregon, are now arranging the details for securing funds for the Hood River project.
