OREGON BUILDING, EXPOSITION
GROUNDS, San Francisco, Aug. 19.
(Special.) For three days the San
Francisco papers, in the face of all de
nials, 'have run headline stories on
supposed hostess difficulties at the
Oregon building. On Saturday the San
Francisco CaU and Post printed large
photographs of Mrs. Thomaa G. Hailey.
ex-hostess of the Oregon buildinc.
labeled "Hostess of the Oregon Build
ing." On the succeeding day photo
graphs of Mrs. Charles A. Gray were
sent officially from the Oregon build
ing to the four San Francisco paperst
naming her "Hostess of the Oregon
This aroused suspicion on the part of
newspapermen. They scented friction,
and interviewed the two women and
Commissioner John F. Logan, who ex
plained that Mrs. Thomas G. Hailey
and Mrs. Charles A. Gray had been
named official hostesses, each to serve
three months, uninterruptedly, Mrs.
Hailey the first thcee months, her time
to expire June r and Mrs. Gray the
second three months, beginning June
1. The privilege of appointing a third
hostess at the end of this time if they
saw fit was reserved by the Commis
sioners. The fact that Mrs. Hailey has re
mained in San Francisco and continued
to be a prominent figure at the expo
sition, entertaining throughout Mrs.
Gray's term, gave the impression with
many that she was still an omciui
hosttss of the Oregon building, with
Mrs. Gray merely an associate. This
erroneous impression is responsible for
the newspaper stories. s
Mrs. Charles A. Gray is to continue
as official hostess until the close of
the exposition, by appointment from
the Board of Commissioners in session
in Portland. The appointment was re
