FAIR TO HAVE ROSES
Visitors Seek Flowers in Vain,
So Plans Are Laid.
BUSHES MAY BE SET OUT
Cut Posies to Be Used in Decoration
of Interior of Oregon Building.
Commitee Cliainnan Xamed
to Arouse Interest.
One thing: is missing- in the picture
at the Oregon building- at the Panama
Pacinc International Exposition.
That one is rose bushes.
Visitors-who hare been to the big
Ban Francisco fete and who have re
turned to Portland say that in another
month or so Oregon will rue the day it
neelected to provide bushes for the
c rounds surrounding: the Oregon build
lng-. It is not only Oregon folk who
notice the scarcity of rose bushes, the
outstanding: discrepancy in the scheme
of things around the building, but vis
itors from the East who have heard
about the Portland rose and Oregon'
pride as a florist's haven look in vain
for evidence of the floral display, and
the comment has become so general
that a concentrated move is under way
to stir up Interest in getting ro
bushes planted on the Oregon grounds.
As a result of the suggestions the
Royal Rosarlans will take up the matter
of planting roses, and If it Is found that
this plan Is feasible, so that the best
floral product of the state may be rep
resented properly at the Exposition. O.
M. Clark, chairman of the state com
mission, said last night that the com
mission had considered the matter, but
had not yet taken definite steps owing
to the opinion of some experts that
the Oregon roses would not do well
in the an Francisco climate.
We have decided definitely, how
ever." he said, "that during the bloom.
lng; season, arrangements will be made
to send Oregon rose blossoms to the
Exposition and to make them one of
the features of the Interior adorn'
ment of the building. As to out of
door planting, we still have that under
advisement and will work out a plan.
if it seems feasible.
J. A Currey has been appointed
by Dean Vincent, prime minister of
the Royal Rosarlans. to act as chair
man on a committee, which he will
select to look into the matter and
endeavor to arouse interest in a move
ment to secure adequate representa
tion of the rose at the Oregon build
"If it is found feasible to plant roses
out of doors about the Oregon build
ing." he says, "I think that the peo
ple of Oregon could do no better than
to arrange for planting of some of the
roses developed by Father George
trhoener. for this would be a grace
ful and deserved recognition of the
creat work he has done for rose cul
ture in Oregon. Father Schoener has.
at his own expense entered 75 of his
ro?e plants in the international con
test at -v:in r raiieisco, and it seems
to me that it would be only proper
recognition of his work, for us to
arrange for some of his roses to be
pi.inte-1 also about the Oregon build
lean Vincent expressed an opinion
yesterday also, that if possible, no time
!-h- uld be lost in arranging for making
roses a prominent feaiure in the adorn.

f'ortland would co-operate with the
Kosnrians in the effort.

SAFETY URGED0N PUBLIC
Greater Interest Is Aim In Enlarg
ing Scope of Commission's Work.
By enlarging the scope of the work
of the Safety First Commission, an ef
fort is to be made to interest the public
more generally in the safety first move
ment. The Safety First Commission at
meeting yesterday in the office of
Mayor Albee discussed the subject in
detail and decided to devise a means of
enlarging the scope.
It is proposed to add to the member
ship of the board advisory committees
or representatives of clubs and organ
izations. By doing this, it is thought
that there will be a wider interest be
cause the organizations will be brought
in closer touch with the Commission
and will know more about what is being
attempted along safety first lines.
