sanda - of festival guests after three
long daya of disappointment and wait

symbolical electrical pkrade typifying
a characteristic quality In the form of
government or the history ef Is of the
world's leading nations.
It was an enormous crowd, but an
orderly and good-natured one. The
fart that the parade moved promptly
on time aided materially In maintain

spirit and Res Oregonus reigned su

Along the entire- route of parade
great masses of humanity. hr see, au

lined up side by side as closely as they
were able to crowd together, and made
the progrws of Hla Kloral Majesty In
hie brillluntly Illuminated float one
triumphant procession of glory and de
light. Nearly the entire population of the
city viewed the pageant. These, to
gether with the Festival visitors from
outside the city, brought the attend
ance to approximately 2(0,000. It waa
a greater crowd than had been out on
either Tuesday night, the night for
which the event waa originally sched
uled, or on Wednesday night, to which
night It first was postponed. The esrly
evening assurance that tha weather
would be fair, permitting the parade
positively to take place without Inter-
ruptlon, brought people by the thou
sands from the residence sections and
from tha suburbs Into the business
streets and those adjoining' streets
along which the floats were announced
to pass.

After the procession passed along
Washington atreet the first time th
crowd remained patiently until It had
gone over Morrison, Eleventh,- Hall and
Thirteenth streets to make tta second
appearance . on Washington street.
They found many new things to won
der at and to enjoy on seeing It the
second time.
One of the best places ta review the
parade waa on Eleventh and Thlr
teenth streets. There were no Illuml
nated decorations and few strset lights
to detract from tha Illumination of the
' floats and the erowd was so orderly
that few policemen were required to
nreserve the lines.
It waa there that little children
were taken by their parents. Their
exclamations of delight In high
pitched voices could be heard above tha
bands. Many ware seated an the curb
stone and rose to cheer when they ware
especially pleased.
All the street crossings were backed
up with automobiles, the sidewalks
lined with Tteonle and the lawna.
