AO a ' - i r IIH LI RACE FOR PRIZES Pendleton Elks Second With ' One First and Two Sec ond Awards. $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 the competition. 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, stage coaches and purple silk hand kerchiefs, third. 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 Harvard Graduate and Roosevelt Admirer Gives His View.. WAHKIACUS, Wash, July 11. (Spe cial.) F. B. Durston. interested In one of the largest department stores in Sioux City, la., accompanied by Pro fessor H. F. Kantlener and Dr. F. E.

From the top of her 11 stories to the pave ment this structure was a mass of beautiful decoration. About the dock were hung flags and red. white and blue bunting, and purple and whit lights. In rows, covered the entire front. Big purple letters, B. P. O. E, formed a square, two being on either side of the clock, at the top and bot tom, respectively. A unique electrlo getpiece on the roof added to the ef fect. Twenty lk heads decorated the Ben Selling store building, which took sec ond prize. In the windows were banked roses and on top of the struc ture extending all the way around It was a row of American flags. The Imperial Hotel, which secured the third prize, of $100, had an immense elk over the entrance on Seventh street. Myriads of lights and purple deoora tions covered every brick and stone. The prizes are . $300, $200 and $100, respectively. - . SCHOOL PLAN DEFENDED LETTER REFERRING TO FAILING BCLLDIXG ERROVEOCS. 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.

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.
