OREGON EXPOSITION BUILDING
Ean Francisco. July 27. (Special.)
The cosmopolitanism of San Francisco
and the exposition is proved, if. it
needed proof. In the enormous crcwds
that welcomed ex-President Roose
velt, ex-Secretary of State Bryan, and
the Llbertv Bell. Colonel Roosevelt
went through all the exposition build
lngs like a streak of lightning, keep
ing his guard and companions on i
quick trot. After he left there was i
sudden dropping into seats and mop
oinnr of brows: but. anyway, he had
seen the show.
Ex-Secretary Bryan returned last
night to deliver a speech before the
Commonwealth Club In the Scottish
Rite Temple and for a case of logan
berry Juice, which reached him at his
hotel in time for dinner. It was sent
from the Oregon building with Ore
Students and Maiamm Dine.
The Commissioners" party Friday
night honoring the Oregon Agricul
tural College and University of Oregon
students now in the building was well
attended. The battleship Oregon sup
plied the music and the famous Oregon
punchbowl. An invitation was extended
to the Mazama Club members, now in
San Francisco, and many were present.
The Mazamas have made the Oregon
building headquarters, and from this
center radiated -over the grounds. Fit
teen, with the president, J. E. Bro-
naugh, dined together the other even

and peaks of the Zone. They are hav
ing a great time, despite sunburn and
the annual peeling.
Many members of the Portland Turn
Verein have visited the Oregon build
ing. Portland won fresh honors
through the Portland teams, Joe
Luckey taking first prize for the
Javelin throw, at 145 feet, and second
prize for the hop, skip and Jump. W
Thomas won first In the medicine ball
throw at 101 feet.
From Oregon Commissioner r.nd Mrs
