The Portland Rose Festival
dates aro June 0 to 12. inclusive.
The only change of importance
in the program has been the
complcto elimination of Rex
Oregonus and tho substitution
of a "Queen of Rosaria" who
will be solo reigning monarch
during Festival week. The
election of Her Majesty and he
maids of honor is now on nnd
tho polls will be open until the
night of Saturday, May 10. The
queen nnd her court will be
given a grand tour of all the
principal coast cities prior to

The home was finely decorated
with roses and a dainty lunch
was served, after which a social
time was had. Many beautiful

Reports from nearly every
section of Oregon indicate
that the gram crop for 1914 will
be the largest in the history of
the state. Not only has the
grain acreage been greatly in
creased, but weather conditions
have been unusually favorable,
and in nearly all districts the
yield per acre will be larger than
usual. Fruit reports from some
sections are not quite as en
couraging as grain estimates,
but in most cases the loss from
frost has not exceeded the an
nual thinning of fruit A large
acreage of new orchards will
produce the first commercial crop
this year, and it is estimated
the total fruit yield will be far
above that of last year.

ins launched into tho occupation
of motoring picnic parties and
others on outings and excursions
to tho country. Ho owns a first
class auto of good speed, and he
is a most careful
nnu reliable
.... I
driver. Any party ot lour or
ess desinntr to spend a dav on
a fishing, picnic or pleasuro ex
cursion will be accommodated by
Mr. waidret at a very low price.
Many of our people in the past
inve at times desired to secure
some manner of being conveyed
to tho country, especially on
Sundays, but were unable to
find a proper conveyance except
at a prohibitive price. Mr.
Waldref has now supplied this
need, and if he finds that one
auto will not bo sufficient to
supply the demand, will add
more to ns equipment, so u
you want to make a trip or ex
cursion, see him about it.
People should be careful how
they address letters for delivery
in the city of St. Johns, es-
pecially so since the auto service
for picking up tho evening mail
has been established. Manv
etters to parties in this citv are
addressed "city" instead of "St.
Johns." Hence such mail is
picked up in the evening and
taken to tho general office in
ortland. Those addressed to
St. Johns are returned here for
delivery the first thing in the
morning. Those addressed to
city" are held m Portland until
the carriers discover that the
mail does not beloncr there.
There have been cases wero let
ters have been meant for parties
in St. Johns but addressed to
'city" that have gone to Port
and, and not gotten back for
almost a week. It is not the
mail officials' fault, but entirely
the people's. So if you want a
person in St. Johns to get a let
ter, don't address it "city."
Make it St, Johns, Oregon.

8iemid talk before tho Com-
mcrcfal Club nt its regular
monthly meeting Wednesday
evening, ine object oi Mr. liy-
Innd's remarks was to arouso in
terest nnd public sentiment to
ward having the approach to tho
Interstate Bridge changed from
Union avenue to somo othor
street on which an exclusive
franchise for ono street enr line
does not obtain. He had maps
to show tho advantages of a di
rect approach over the detour
one to union avenue, anu told
how a common user approach
would beneht and how an ex
clusive approach would be dctri
mental to the interests of both
states. Tho object ho desired
to attain was a reconsideration
of the question by the County
Commissioners, and permit a
fair hearing on the merits ot all
streets suitable for approach. His
remarks wero listened to with a
creat deal of interest, and a res
olution was adopted unanimous
ly asking for a reconsideration
of the question, and a committee
will be appointed by President
Bonham to present them to tho
County Commissioners personal-
ly. Mr. Hyland stated the mat
ter rested entirely with Chair
man of the Board Holman, as
the other two Commissioners
had committed themselves on
the proposition. A representa
tive of the Overlook Improve
ment club was also present and
made a few remarks favoring a
change in the approach to tho
bridge, and said that his club
was to take the matter up with
the Commissioners Thursday
morning. Seven new members
were added to tho enrollment of
the Commercial Club.

items of interest Regard
ing School Doings
The organizations among thu
students have helped a great
deal in the past year, each in is
particular way, to Interest pupils
aim pareius in uiu woi'K oi tno
High School. The Athletic As
sociation has aided in developing
enthusiasm and spirit in all tho
snorts that have been taken up.
Ihe students, being interested
in the sports, it is most natural
that the patrons of the school
become interested. Like thu
Athletic Association, the II ink
Ivlatawah Club helps in thu
same way; all the girls of tho
High School are eligible as mem
oes and most of them belong.
The hikes arc to be continued,
for one and all have enjoyed the
long and short trips that have
been taken, and expect to go on
others soon. Although thu
Dramatic Club has helped in a
different way, it has done its
part in bringing the students
closer together. The entertain
ments given by the club have
been hailed with delight, show
ing that the students enjoy them
and are looking forward to
others. Last, but not least, the
diire re nt class organizations
huvo helped in their way to
bring the students together.
They make possible in the High
School a social life which is
most pleasant. They have en
tertained one another in many
ways, showing their ingenuity
in making and carrying out
plans of entertainment. Tho
class organizations bring tho
students into social contact more
than any other organization in
tho High School. Tho Senior
Class is now preparing for their
farewell parties and much is ex
pected of them because of their
provious successes.
"Her Friend, the Enemy,"
tho Senior Play, is progressing
rapidly and it is expected that
it will ho produced very soon,
although as yet no date has been
definitely decided upon. It Is u
war drama in four acts, which
must, without doubt, interest
every American. The plot is
most exciting, being u story of
the Civil War time, with Mas
sachusetts nnd Virginia tho
scenes ot action. Along with
tho very dramatic personae,
Diana, Jack and Frank, ure the
interesting Aunt Chloe and Ligo
who afford no end of fun whilo
they centime to scold each other.
