Ground broken for Washington Stale pavilion SPOKANE Gold shovels biting the brown earth symbo- lized the beginning of the [irst construction project on the site of Expo '74, and for many Spokane citizens, it was the first physical evidence that the rebirth of their city's core area was more than a dream. At a lunch-hour ceremony re- cently. Washington State Gov- ernor Daniel J. Evans and Spo- kane Mayor David H. Hodgcrs broke the ground on the site of the Washington Slate Pavilion.
