People didn't cheer too much at the
children's parade on Grand avenue yes
terday morning they were too much
overcome by emotion. ..'''
It was an Impressive spectacle, those
000 Innocent boys and girls marching
In proud and dlgnlfiel review before
their parents and elders.
It was and is by far the most appeal
ing: feature of the present Rose Festl
- val of any Rose Festival.
There is more human interest about
the children's, parade than about any
other event of the week. Scarcely ' a
man or woman in Portland but who was
personally interested in at least one
boy or g-lrl In the procession. Every
youngster had his own particular ad
mirers in the crowd.
Children Ioo't See Parents.
Fond parents there were who waited
In line for hours for their own little
"Harry" or "Betty" to pass. And until
"Harry" or "Betty" did pass nothing
else mattered. All other parts of the
parade were as a sort of unnecessary
It was seldom that the fathers and
mothers were able to attract atten
tion of their own children. The little
ones were too much absorbed In the
Importance of their own positions.
Yes, it was a great day for the chil
dren. Ne Prises Awarded.
In every particular yesterday's pro
cession surpassed all those that have
gone before. The number of schools
represented and the. nuaiber of chil
dren in line were the greatest in Festi
val history. This was the first time
that the West Side schools participated.
And they, collectively and individually,
made a splendid showing.
No prizes were awarded yesterday.
Honor and glory were equally divided
among them all. Doubtless it is Just
as well. The lot of a judge would have
been one full of terrors. Every depart
ment was so good that a decision would
have been the merest kind of guess
Variety In Dresa Noted.
One element particularly pleasing to
the eye was the wide variation in the
dress, formation and organization of
the several schools. There were no two
ulike. Each presented something dif
lerent. Bach was equally brilliant and
The plan of marching alone was uni
form. The same tactics were used by
the various schools in their maneuvers.
They constantly changed step and
shifted position with difficult footwork
well performed. The agility and abil
ity displayed by even the smallest
member in line was quite remarkable.
ltobert Krohn, physical director of
the schools, had general supervision
of the march and for months had drilled
the children in their work for yester
day; but the details of attire, the hard
work in perfecting the little ones in
their steps and the responsibility of
Shewing them appear iu line in good
inarching order belonged to the princi
pals and the Individual teachers.
Q,uecn la Impressed.
"It's the grandest sight I . ever saw."
commented Queen Thelma, who after
riding at the head of the procession,
stopped at Hawthorne avenue to see
the little marchers file past.
Captain J. T. Moore and a squad of
police led the pageant from the start
