Ihe first anniversary of the
St. Johns Community Club, held
in the club rooms of tlio Port
land Woolen Mills Tuesday even
ing was a pronounced and un
qualified success. The attend
ance was largo and the evening
was immensely enjoyed. An
especially pleasing feature was
the presence of Walter Jenkins,
Portland's gifted song leader.
Preceding the serving of the
dinner, he led the assemblage
in a. number of songs, which
were joined in by all in a hearty
manner. Mr. Jenkins' singing
was indeed a much appreciated
treat. The dinner, served by
the cafeteria department of the
club house, was well taken core
of and enjoyed. The woolen
mills orchestra rendered some
delightful selections.
After the repast had been sat
isfactorily disposed of Mr. P.
Greenwood, manager of the Fed
eral Reserve Hank, gavo a most
interesting discourso upon our
birds and exhibited a number of
stcreopticon views of birds tak
cn by himself. Greater interest
in bird life was no doubt awak
ened as a result of his talk and
exhibits. The entertainment ho
thus generously provided was
highly appreciated. The secre
tary, Mrs. Montgomery, was in
strumental ir securing this feat
ure of the evening's enjoyment.
Pleasing readings were given
by Miss Mulkcy and Miss Ed
wards. The high school male
quartet rendered a couple of on
joyablo selections, and Mrs. Ga
briel Pullin delighted the a aud
ience with two solos that were
rendered in a most pleasing
manner. She has a magnificent
voice and the people of St Johns
are nlways greatly pleased to
hear her sing. She was accom
panied on tlio piano by Randolph
Howard. Ellery Landers of the
high school told about tlio high
school play to bo given Friday
and Saturday evenings, and the
manager of Th Tumalum mnde
a few remarks concerning it.
ic'John N. Edlefson gave a short
but interesting history of the
club, nnd wns followed by neat
little addresses by Dr. E. 1.
Horden, Prof. Fletcher and A.
E. Jones. Kenneth Brown of
Sellwood, who was present with
several others from that place,
made a pleasant address in
which ho said tlio pcoplo of Sell

Big Fair Should Be Here
The suggestion that the big Fair
projected for Portland in 1925 be
located in North St. Johns is a
worthy one, and if the Fair mater
ializes no more fitting and logical
location for the five million dollar
project could be found. In north
St. Johns there is plenty of terri
tory available for the purpose, and
the setting would be most ideal.
Several developments, while not ab
solutely necessary, would be desira
ble in making the lower peninsula
incomparable for the purpose, such
as a high bridge here with trolley
Hues upon it, a roadway to the
Swift plant and Monarch mills,
and direct connection with Inter
state bridge by trolley, hard stir
face and trolley on Greeley street
and even a ship channel from just
north of the Terminal connecting
tuc Willamette and Columbia rtv
ers would be an immense boon with
its vast stretches of water frontage
thus created. Since Vancouver an
ticipatcs joining forces in the Fair,
provided it is realized, the construe
tiou of such a channel would prove
ol inestimable value, as the dis
tancc to Vancouver by water could
be shortened several miles. These
Innovations arc destined to come to
pass sooner or later, any why not
sooner, as they could be brought
about within the next four years.
And thus unsurpassed trausporta
lion could be effected by water,
railroad, trolley, roadway and air.
It would be eminently fitting that
the lower peninsula, which is des
tiucd to become the great mauufae
turinir and industrial nortion of tin
city of Portland, sliould be selected
for this World's Fair. Certainly
St. Johns should cast its hat In the
ring for the projected 1925 Fair.
