RACE FOR PRIZES
Pendleton Elks Second With
' One First and Two Sec
$5900 TO BE DISTRIBUTED
Judges Vnable to Determine Win
ner of Mileage Money Denver
Takes Drill Contest With
Aberdeen Best Appearing.
Prizes in gold, to the value of 15900
will be handed out this morning at 11
o'clock at the Postoftlce grandstand
by Harry C. McAllister to 27 different
winners in the Elks' parade and In
contests on Multnomah Field yester
day. While the mileage awards had
not been made last night. Tacoma led
all other cities with two flrst prises
and was followed by Pendleton with
one first and two seconds.
Aberdeen took the "best appearance
first, Tacoma took the flrst prise for
the greatest number outside of Ore
gon. Pendleton had the most unique
uniforms. Tacoma the most attractive
float. Albany the greatest number of
any Oregon lodge outside of Portland,
Berkeley, with the Fifth Regiment Na
tional Guard of California, was Judged
to have the best band in the parade;
Denver took the drill contest, with a
prize of 500, and Vancouver yester
day had registered, the greatest num
ber of women, barring; Oregon, and
was given the first award.
Bremertoa Close Seeoad.
The Tacoma float, with its Elk an-1
pretty girls, won by a bare margin
over the model of the battleship Ore
gon, entered from Bremerton. Many
thought that the Bremerton float, with
its booming guns and jackles in at
tendance, deserved flrst prize. Hoqulam
was given the third prize of 200.
The Denver company of Elks ,in their
natty uniforms took the drill prize and
were followed closely in first and sec
ond order by Los Angeles and Oakland.
San Francisco, which has won every
drill contest In which the lodge ever en
tered, received favorable mention. It
was the only other team that entered
Vancouver sent more of the fair sex
to Portland for the big day than any
other city outside the state. Nearly
S0O women from the city across the line
contributed to the success of the pa
geant. The first prize was 2S0. Spo
kane came second in the list with 185.
and Seattle third with 109 women.
Long aad Short Awarded.
Roseburg contributed the tallest man,
F. C. Raltt, who measured under the
Judges' critical eyes Just Gfeet 8
inches. . Sidney Smith, of Seattle, took
$25 when he convinced those who were
making the awards that he was only 48
Inches tall. S. & Rate! iff. leading the
Idaho delegation, was adjudged the fat
test because he tipped the scales at 397
pounds; W. H. Moore, of The Danes,
was the leanest, and F. X. Mathleu,
now residing in Portland, but of the
Salem lodge, was the oldest. Mr. Math
leu is 95 years old. There are only a
dozen Elks in the world older than he.
Aberdeen . paraders, in their tall
white silk hats, their blue coats and
white pants, with a stripe down the
leg. leading "Big Bill." their trained
elk. took the Thanksgiving dinner for
the best appearance. Oregon City was
second and Pendleton, -with cowboys,

Tacoma Brings -Moat Menu
Tacoma, with 234 members, took the
prize for the greatest number in at
tendance. Oregon was barred. Seat
tle was second, with 226 and Van
couver third, with 170. The prizes
were $250, 150 and $100. The Ta
coma people were out in force in their
long coats and plug hats, and they
made a good appearance as they
marched along in what -seemed a
never-ending line. The Seattle Pot
latch bugs put up a good fight for the
first medal and lost to the smaller
city by only 18.
Pendleton won first prize in the
"most unique uniform" contest. The
cowboys came here to "show" Port
land and the Eastern visitors some
thing of the "passing West." They
made an impression. The AstoTla
Clams took second place and The
Dalles third. The entire Astoria dele
gation, clad in a good Imitation of
clam shells, marched over the five
miles, carrying a load that grew heavy
long before they had gone one mile.
The Dalles Indians, In their blankets
and war paint, captivated the Judges
by their rendition of savage dancing
and blood-curdling yells. Half nude,
sitting astride their ponies, they made
a realistic picture.
Albany won the prize for the largest
attendance from an Oregon lodge out
side of Portland by sending 893 Elks
to the convention and entering them In
the parade. There was only one prize
given and that was $300.
The Berkeley. CaU National Guard
Band, which escorted the scholarly
gentlemen in caps and gowns over the
long parade course, took the $500 first
prize In the band contest. Idaho took
second prize and Pendleton won the
third prize of $200. .The second prize
was for $300.
The Judges had much difficulty in
making decisions. No sooner would one
good-looking delegation pass than an
other that appeared a little better came
along. In many instances the differ
ence between firsts, seconds and thirds
was so slight that it was almost neg
ligible. THIRD PARTY NEEDLESS

SCHOOL PLAN DEFENDED
LETTER REFERRING TO FAILING
Whitebouse & Pouilhoux Give Fig
ures Showing Grades and Com
parative Street Levels.
PORTLAND, July . (To the Editor.)
We notice that an open letter has
been published In The Oregonlan of
July S referring to the new Falling
School. Inasmuch as this letter con
tains some erroneous statements, we
think it proper to state the facts as
they really are.
Referring to the third paragraph of
the letter, in whlch.lt Is stated that
the ground Is almost flat, we wish to
call your attention to the difference of
elevation of the natural ground as
shown on the survey. This difference
of elevation, taken at the center line
running east and west, was 21.8 feet,
and taken from southwest corner to
the northeast corner this difference
was 25.2 feet. In this same third para
graph It Is stated that a playground 60
x200 feet la being excavated six feet
below street level, when, as a matter
of fact, the playground is 200x176 feet
and the greatest depth below street
level is 3 feet 8 inches, at the south
west corner: this depth below street
decreasing to 1 foot Inches at the
northwest corner and the northeast
corner of the west playground Is 1 foot
2 Inches above street level, conse
quently such a playground will not In
volve an expenditure for a 10-foot con
crete wall, as stated In the letter, and
furthermore, the drainage of the
ground has always been provided for.
Inasmuch as whatever the arrangement
would be the ground would always
slope towards the building; It consists
of two small concrete - catch basins
with wrouaht iron a-ratlng on top and
connects to the rain water drainage
system with the main building through
a pipe 6 feet in length, consequently
there will not be any cnance tor iur
ther outlay of money In favor of an
enterprising plumber, as the letter puts
it. In the same paragraph is mentionea
the . 111-ventllated cellar and subter
ranean playground, while if these gen
tlemen had taken the trouble to in
vestigate the facts they would have
found that the basement floor level, on
which the boys' and girls' piaygrouna
and lunchrooms are located, stands 1
foot 2 inches above street level at the
northwest corner of ' the building, 7
feet S Inches at the northeast corner,
6 feet at the southeast corner and only
1 foot 3 inches below street level at
the southwest corner, the building
standing 15 feet away from the street.
In the fourth paragraph, regarding
the height of the retaining wall, which
Ik riven as It feet. ' we went to the
extra trouble of revising our drawings
to meet the desiderata of the property
owners as expressed to us by Mr.
Plvmale- This retaining wall, as
now tevlsed, will only be 14 feet
at Its maximum height point and
this information was given to Mr.
Plvmale. one of the signers of the
letter ,and we are surprised to aee
him so misstate the. facts. This wail
decreases In height from 14 feet to 8
feet Inches at the southwest corner
and decreases gradually to a height of
4 feet. The 7 reet widtn oi xooung
referred to In the letter only applies to
the part of the wall which Is 14 feet
in height and this width decreases In
nronortlon to the height of the wall.
giving the wall a base equal to one--
half Its helgnt, accoramg to jooo en
gineering practice, for stability. ' In
the same paragraph the advisability of
having a cut on one side and a fill on
the other Is questioned. We wish to
call your attention to the fact that
there Is a difference of 29 feet ( Inches
between the street grade at the south
wat amr and stret grade at the
northeast corner of the ground, and in
order to keep the ground fairly level
and offset this bis? difference in eleva
tion. It la obvious that a cut has to be
made on the upper side and a fill on
the lower side.
The building of this wall means the
addition of approximately 10,700
square feet to the boys' playground and
the cost of same will be between $12,
000 and $13,000. all as per unit prices
which were submitted with the bid on
the construction of the main building.

Good Roads Are Urged,
RAYMOND, Wash., July 1L (Spe
cial.) Arrangements are under way In
this city and up the valley to attend
the good roads meeting In Hwaco on
July 20, in accordance with the call of
the Pacific County Good Roads Associa
tion made at their regular meeting last
week. The meeting at Ilwaco Is for
the purpose of outlining a plan
whereby the entire county will be
working as a unit for roads that are
badly needed, which went by the boards
at the last session of the State Legisla
ture, tit Is thought that sufficient pres
sure can be brought to bear on the big
business Interests throughout the west
ern portion of the state at least to
forestall any likelihood of a recur
rence of the fiasco during the closing
hours of the Isst session. Roads, good
or bad, are of the most vital Importance

Elks' Commission Permits Amateurs

Never ' before . in the history of the
city were as many exposures of film
made as yesterday. Along many of
the streets 4 the gutters were yellow
with 'film wrappers and everywhere
could be seen the amateur photograph
er getting real souvenirs of the big
gest parade the city has known.
Every pole bore Its quota, and on
ladders, flrescapes, boxes and nearly
anything to raise the picture man a
foot above the heads of the crowd
were perched the-enthusiastic camera
lovers, in many places they became
too thick for the best results and
scrimmages occurred. Clashes came
up between the so-called "official"
photographer and the amateurs, the
"official" trying to oust all others
from the competition.
Hawthorne bridge had Its quota of
picture-takers stationed on the girders.
The film-manufacturing companies
also had their men stationed along
the line of march, and many a reel of
moving plotures will leave Portland
showing the big - event. Portland
theaters also had men out, and the
pictures of the pageant will be shown
tonight In a number of places.
Before nightfall many enterprising
souvenir dealers were .offering for sale
postcards bearing pictures of several
'of the parade features. The Elks have
permitted amateur as well as profes
sional photographers of all kinds to
take pictures of all events through-J
out the week. iJ

The cool head and strong arm of Miss
Gladys McHenry, of Thurston, saved
her yesterday from, being drawn by a
whirlpool under a pack of driftwood
in the McKenzIe River.
Miss McHenry was wading across a
shallow branch of the McKenzIe to
reach an island to gather blackberries
when she lost her footing and was
swept into the main stream. She saw
the driftwood and whirlpool ahead.
Just a the edge of the pool was a
strong branch extending diagonally
into the air and she headed for this
and grasped the limb Just In time. She
lost her shoes and berry pail.
Several months ago Miss McHenry
had a similar mishap when she was in
a buggy with her father crossing by
the ferry. A floating saw log fright
ened the team, which backed off into
the water. Miss McHenry refused aid.
