General Passenger Agent,
Those who were engaged in the' de
signing and decorating of the O. A. C,
Ladles of the Maccabees . and the
Grange floats for the parade on the
Fourth are deserving of great credit
for their loyalty to their college or or
ganization. Although the grange had
but one day in which to work after
the Inception of the idea of taking a
enterprise was an unqualified success.
The float was described In detail in
another number of this paper.
The O. A.' C. students designed a
float that was a credit to themselves
and to their college. In the little room
at their disposal, they accomplished
wonders, every department of the col
lege curriculum being well repre
sented. Under command of Captain
Ralph E. Reynolds, the float proper
was preceded by cadets McCall, Rey
nolds, McKennon, Eberly, Fox, ; Day
and Spence, and In their natty uni
forms they made' a fine appearance.
Upon the float and helping to por
tray the different departments were
Misses Mabel Tuttle, Ethel McKennon
and Miss Combs. C. T. Colt and Jim-
mle Smith handled the lathe and the
engines, representing the mechanical
and engineering departments. Dr. C.
B. Cauthorn, Frank Lilly and Scott
Goodall, "old gradu," assisted very
materially In the construction and de
sign of the float. The engine, plow
and Instruments were loaned by
Frank Kllpatrck and Arthur Curtis.
The loyalty of its students reflects
credit upon the Institution. . . t '
The officers In charge of the Mac- j
cabee float were Mrs, R. Q. Masterson,
Mrs. D. H. Steward and Mrs. Charles
U. McLaln. : Miss Lillian Baker,
daughter of Conductor and Mrs. Frank
Baker, represented the emblem of the
order. She was beautifully gowned
In white silk organdie. She wore a
crown of gold and carried a silver
shield In her right hand. At her left
were two beautiful, little girls, Vir
ginia Lincoln and Maxine Jolly. Her
guards were Mrs. Ethel May, Miss
Wells, Miss Ferguson and Miss Kllnt
wortt. The flower children Were
Babe Steward, Lester Musterson, Clar
ence Hagan, Alonzo Dunn,, May Dunn
and Louise O'C'onnell. The crowning
glory of the Maccabee float waa the
eight beautiful children, mere babes,
all In white. The float was drawn
by four whllo horses driven by Xix
It. A. MnstiTsun, who did herself
credit as a horsewoman.
Plr knlk'hls mnrchc,d on either side.
Tho Mncciiuee colors, black, red and
white, were artistically carried out in
tho decorations. The float on the
whole was one of the prettiest ever
seen In La Grande and well deserved
the honor it shared equally with O. A.
C. and tho IJlue Mountain Orange.
