Word reached Eugene today that Miss
Georgia White, Corvallis’ candidate for
queen of the Portland Rose Festival, has
withdrawn from the race. The action
■was based on the belief that Corvallis
has no chance to elect its queen.
The resignation of Miss White, cou
pled with the fact that Miss Kdel
Fraasch is now leading the race for
queen gave impetus to the campaign in
Eugene. Hopes of electing Miss Fraasch
were expressed everywhere.
It was stated at a meeting held Bat- ]
nrday in Corvallis that 259,970 votes i
were given to R. P„ Richardson, of the
Portland Rose Festival campaign com
mittee and that Mr. Richardson had
promised to vote them in time for their
appearance in the Sunday Portland pa
pers. Because of the failure to publish
the votes when they were sure Miss
White’s standing would be first on the
list, the Corvallis committee decided it
was time to withdraw, it is stated.
Miss Franseb, who is backed by the
business men of this city, took the lead
in the race yesterday and in the latest
count last night was still more than 2W>0
votes ahead of her nearest oppon -nt.
Miss Lillian C. Hendrickson, candidate
of the Foresters of America, was sec
ond. She and Miss Fraasch have a long
lead over the other contestants, but it is
still anybody’s race and changes in the
relative standings are liable to come in
any count, for heavy votes are being sent
in from various cities.
Eleanor Jackson of McMinnville, sup
ported jointly by the Modern Foresters
and the Moose, hns shown a steady
strength in the contest and is expected
to be one of the candidates to be reck
oned with in the final count.
Just four days remnln in the contest
and the voting is becoming heavier each
day. The final count will be made Frir
day night, or ns soon thereafter as the
lust mailed ballots reach th* contest
A benefit for Miss Fraasch’s fund wil)
be given at the Savoy theatre tonight.

CONCERT NEXT THURSDAY
Band Will Give Second Open Air Treat
on Steps of McClure.
Next Thursday evening, weather per
mitting, the University band will give its
second open air concert on McClure
balcony. The last concert was well at
tended and the band was praised freely1
for its excellent work. An entirely new
program will be rendered this week.
The work of the band during Junior
Week-End created considerable favor
able comments from the visitors and
from town people who heard the band
in action before. Great credit is due
not only the director, Albert Perfect, but
to the men themselves for the work
they have done this year and the results
they have obtained.
Starting last fall with little training,
the band has stuck together despite the
fact that It received little encourage
ment or support and has attained an
efficiency that is worthy of consider
able praise. Wlmt is most noteworthy
is the fact that the individual members
received no credit or other form of com
pensation for their work. All the work
that they have done has been done
gratis and sometimes at great incon
venience to themselves. The big pur
pose of their efforts being to establish
a( Oregon a band that would bo worthy
of the school.
It is very probable that the band will
be sent on a trip next, year such as the
glee clubs take, also credit is assured and
instruments are to be purchased.
