CREMATORIUM IS OPEN
MOOT SCOTT PARK EDIFICE
Hnndreds Who Gather to Decorate
Graves of Soldiers Attend for
Impressive ceremony marked the for
mat dedication yesterday morning of
the new crematorium at Mount Scott
Park. The exercises were attended by
several hundred persons who gathered
at the cemetery from all parts of Port
land to take part in the dedication and
to decorate graves.
Emmet Williams delivered the dedi
catory address. He said the first cre
matorium in the United States was es
tablished by J. P. LeMoyne at Wash
ington. Pa., in 1876. Dr. LeMoyne was
the third person to be cremated in this
plant. The growth of the plan has been
rapid since that time. Portland was the
first Coast city north of San Francisco
to have a plant. In Portland, he said,
there was one cremation a week In
1900: now there is one cremation a day.
Koscoe rvelson also spoke. The pro
gramme of music was furnished by
John Clair Montieth and Mrs. Fred Ol
son. Rev. William W. Youngson, pastor
ot Kose city Park Methodist Episcopal
Church, offered the prayers.
The new plant was built by H. R.
Reynolds after an investigation extend
ing throughout the United States to get
the latest ideas on the subject.
The exterior Is of stone, while the
interior is finished so as to take away
the expected gloom. The cost of the
crematorium was $50,000.
POLICE BAND MEM ARE DUE

The Portland Police Band, or what
13 left of ffie organization, is expected
to arrive in Portland today by steam
ship from San Francisco. Sergeant R.
J. Ellis, president of the band when
it left Portland, returned last . week
declaring that he was through with
the organization and would not play In
it again. With him on the steamer

There was disagreement among the
band members in San Francisco, with
out a doubt, for they will return today

MISS HAMMOND'S morality play,
to be produced at the Heilig to
night and tomorrow, is in its na
ture esentially a pageant. Designed
for community production, it has been
filled by the author with effects which
are usually excluded by the limitations
of professional productions. Miss Ham
mond's great asset in her play Is the
eager spirit of co-operation, which en
thuses the Reed College women to a
high pitch. A great deal depends on
the spectacular effects by which the
beauty of the line3 and the artistic
splendor of the whole conception are
Comparisons by which Portland resi
dents cbuld appreciate the power of the
work Reed College women have done
on "Every woamn's Road" are lacking.
The possibilities lying in the per
formance of a pageant have aroused
Eastern communities to several nota
ble successes in the last few years.
But Portland has seen none of this kind
of production, and possibly may see
nothing within the next 25 years, which
in all features may be comparable with
the present effort.
By an assiduous devotion to Miss
Hammond's ideas, the Reed College
women have applied their collective
5 j-J SsCl "V Its? "S-
ability in an effective manner, and the
spectacle of their faithful contribution
to the success of "Everywoman's Road."
and incidentally to the increase of the
women's building fund, has been, on
several occasions touching. At least
one person has appreciated the rare
nature of close union under one leader
and-one idea, for the equivalent of all
the net receipts has been promised as
an addition to the building fund.
The burden bearers in particular are
interesting. They typify the slave in
womankind, toiling under heavy loads
of implements, produce or household
goods. Their passage across the stage
is especially arousing, for it furnishes
the actual view of the long-enduring,
laborious sacrifices that have been un
dergone in all ages. The weight of
their loads strikes the imagination aa
no sociological dissertation does. Ar
guments for the emancipation of
women get an effective, emotional
backing at the sight of their actual
painful toil. . .
The Reed Colcge women have done
more than shoulder the bags, baskets,
bundles and packs which typify the
position of women in society. They
have shouldered the responsibility for
Everywoman s Road, and . by com
bined effort make the plas- a certain
success. They have exerted willing in
dividual forces to give "Everywoman's
Road" the combined power it needed.
Capable hands and brains, working in
organization, have been behind Miss
Hammond since the initial rehearsal
in fact, since the first call for try
outs, and in this array of forces Miss
Hammond has found the means to play
her morality with the strength and
power it was meant to have.
The performance tonight begins at
8:15, and tomorrow's performances are
at 2:1a and 8:15.
Little Stories of Oregon Life

that was being driven through
town Wednesday morning by Bert

Lebanon Clothing Company store where
he caught eight of himself through the

fitting clothing, says the Criterion. His
goatship failed to recognize his own
mug and at once showed the fight that
was in him by butting into the glass
head-on. He was caught before any
damage was done, however, and put
out of the back door.
