There are times in a man’s life
when something happens to take
ali the conceit out of him. This
happened to the writer upon his
first visit to the beautiful Colum
bia Highway. I had often spok
en of my powers of imagination;
have made ten trips from the
great Mississippi river to the
greater Willamette river; ..are
viewed from the train the beau
ties of the Sierra Nevada moun
tains, the Siskiyous, the Rocky
mountains, the hills of the
Ozarks. and have viewed from
the motion picture screen the
different natural sceneries of
many of the foieign countries,
and being a great lover of na-
ture, I was prepared, or thought
I was prepared, for what I saw
on the great Co umbia Highway.
But after drinking of the beauty
and magnitude of the natural
scenery along this highway, I
was simply awed. Standing at
Crown Point and looking up and
down the Columbia river and
viewing the mountains in all
their granduer and stateliness,
standing on .the bridge and view-
ing the wonderful Multnomah
Falls caused me to stop and
consider the amallness of man in
comparison to the Great Creator
of all this. Then in driving over
one of the greatest engineering
projects in all the world, going
around the figure eight and all
t.ie other curves necessary to
enable us (o ascend the grade of
over 700 feet back to the top of
Crown Point, ana to think of all
the money, labor and gray mat
ter expended to enable us to ac
complish this feat, caused me
agai to have confidence in mere
man. One who will observe and
think cannot make a trip over
the great Columbia River High
way without being in some way
a better man. After seeing and
being in close touch with the
magnitude and beauty of it all,
it makes one have a greater
reverence for the Creator of all
things. Anyone that can go.

bia Highway cheats himself of
one of nature’s greatest treats.
The slogan, “ See America First”
is a good one, but could be im
proved on by saying “ See Ore
