The final decision of the- management
to permit the agricultural colleges of
the three Northwestern states, Oregon.
Washington and Idaho, to enter In the
competition seems to have met with the
finrl approval of all Interested parties.
"Some criticism was made by the ex
hibitors." said l. O. Uvely. "to the
effect that colleges were permitted to
enter and compete for the prises. At
the iir.t show the colleges were not
permitted to enter and It was the
opinion of the management that they
would not be allowed to enter the sec
ond show. In fact, the preliminary
classification was so arranged, but after
due consideration the classification was
amended and the colleges permitted to
enter. This same question has been
up at all of the shows of a similar
character In the I'nltcd States and the
discussion lakes place each year.

Should be cultivated locally, as well as in a broader field. Our sister state to
the east has just shown a friendly and neighborly interest toward Oregon by
her "Booster Special." There is something about a hearty hand-clasp from a
social or business friend that strengthens our confidence in mankind. Idaho,
Washington and Oregon should be more than neighbors; they should be sisters
and pull together for a GREATER NORTHWEST.
Our cities should also pull together to obtain best results. It's high time
for Portlanders and Astorians to stop their selfish squabbles and to recognize
that EACH is an ADVANTAGE to the OTHER. We need to use the mouth of
the Columbia River to keep pace with Washington on a BUSINESS BASIS.
We can't afford to sleep on their $5,000,000 terminal proposition. The Pan
ama Canal great ships will all go there, "IF WE DON'T WATCH OUT."
"THERE'S A REASON"
So let's get busy at the GATEWAY. And, Mr. Neighbor, the logical thing
for you to do and do it quick is to plant a few dollars in inside lots at
before the multitude gets wise. You'll be helping Oregon develop, and inci
dentally helping yourself to riches. See
