Organizations Rival in Hospi
tality at Picnic to N. E. A.
at Washington Park.
Fascinating Hostesses Dispense Joy
and Good Things to Eat Chil
dren in Pleasing Costumes '
Aid in Programme,
Seems to ine that the other states
besides Oregon must be just about
managing to get by. and that's all, with
the best portion of their best people
living right here amons our native
sons and daughters. Way. there's
enough fine folic from Indiana alone
out tms way to start a new state. I
promised to start with Indiana this
accounting of the grand get-together
meeting of the state societies yester
day at the City Park.
Aly promise was wrung from me by
n. committee or Hoosiers who were
holding their annual picnic at Wash
ington Park in conjunction with the
reception tendered the N. E. A. by all
the state societies. The aforementioned
committee waited upon me and placed
in my lap a pasteboard plate heaped
high with golden fried chicken, "lem
ming pie" and plenty of homemade
When the Hoosier committee did all
this, and stopped casually to mention
that 'I was to make myself right to
home, and that "maw" had a hunk of
angel cake for me when I had gotten
outside the above listed, and that if I
didn't have any particular society to
start off with why. old Indiana, etc.
Hospitality Is PleasingT.
I feel gladly. I feel for the food
and the hospitable spirit and "maw"
in her white apron, afraid I wasn't
getting enough to eat. Before the In
diana Society got hold of me and
bought me soul and body I had intended
to begin with the Iowa Society, where
I ran into a dozen affable folk who
"usta know my paw and maw, andi went
to school with my paw's sister Eliza,
who married one of the Cohagan boys,
I might have been persuaded to start
off with the Missouri Society, for I
ran into a bunch of natives who "usta
go to school with me" and wanted me
to be sure and put in the accounting
that the great joy of their day was
that-1 could easily have been lured to
give the Missouri Society first mention
if I hadn't run smack dab into a
hoydenish girl of 60-odd who insisted
she "usta go" to the old Kirksville
Normal with me.
In truth if only they had known it
any hostess standing smilingly behind
her state table, ladling alike hospitality
and loganberry Juice, could have had
first place. Each deserves it. Ge
ography is not my strong suit, but I
believe every state In the whole col
lection had a booth and a group of
Its loveliest representatives, all dolled
in lingerie things and picture hats and
Each society selected its own Idea
tion, and, while the prescribed rules
of the game were followed more or
less closely In placing them In a sort
of reception line, so you could shake
hands with Michigan and bow to a
neighbor In Kansas, there were a few
souls who braved the forpti n H
tablished camps of hospitality far off
the beaten trail of the reception line.
The Hawaiian booth was one of these,
a colorful spot, tucked in a clumn of
pines, where sweet music from ukuleles
and voices of young girls in song
rivaled the birds' call and the murmur
or the winds among the trees.
Hawaiian Society Donn't Exist.
There Isn t any Hawaiian Society,
really, you must know, but a group of
travelers, who love the island, acted
as hostesses, and bade "aloha" to N.
E. A. guests who knew of the wonder
Some tables kept tab on the N. E. A.
folk from their own home state, some
had a system of registration, others
passed the news of home folk arrival
around by word of mouth. They called
it the "Nation's grand reunion" and it
was truly that, a general get-together
social of all the local state organiza
tions to act as host to the visiting
teachers of the N. E. A. The teachers
came, too. In droves and dozens called
on their home state booth, had a drink
of loganberry Juice and wished to
heaven the Indiana society had held
Its rriea-cnicken. lemming-pie orgy
in Hongkong.
unless, or course, the In. E. A. was
a Hoosier. In which case he or she
and friends were called right into the
fold. Up on the hill the big Municipal
Band, under direction of Percy A
Campbell, played melody airs all
through the afternoon, and a dense
crowd sat about the stand. Mrs. Fred
Olsen sang "The Star-Spangled Ban
ner" with a wealth of sincerity and 1
flow of golden notes that brough
wildest applause. In another part o
the park a group of beautifully trained
little folk of the playground, under
direction of Miss Fay Armstrong and
Pearl "Hunter, presented a fascinating
pageant in pantomime of . classic
Grecian dance.
The children wore fanciful and
character costumes and entered into
the mood of the pageant, "Ceres and
Persephone," with joyous purpose.
In actual count there were 2 0 organ
ized state societies present with repre
sentatives presiding at booths, and in
addition there was the Daughters of
the Confederacy, representing the
South, and the Canadian Society. The
latter"s booth was besprinkled with the
colorful maple leaf and the American,
Canadian and British flags flew
The hostesses were Mrs. Gus C.
Moser, Mrs. Charles Bennett, Mrs. T.
W. Kirby and Mrs. Henry Kirk. The
table where reigned the Daughters of
the Confederacy was beautiful in its
color scheme of patriotic hues, splashed
with the soft white cotton bolls of the
Southlands. Here a group of women
of the chapter gave roses and other
flowers and served punch. The hostesses
included Mrs. S. C. Morton, Mrs. V. JJ.
Maxon, Mrs. F. Joplin, Mrs. E. T. Hed
lund. Mrs. L. R. Bailey, Mrs. Anton
Giebisch, Mrs. H. S. Hammond, Mrs. A.
M. Lee and Mrs. H. H. Duff. At the
Hawaiian table presided Mrs. H. R.
Burke, Mrs. G. H. Lamberson, Mrs.
George Guild, Misses Lambertson, Ar
mistead, Ogilvie and Hutchins. A group
of pretty girls. Including Vivian
De Lory, Elvera Anderson, Marie Simp
son, Mildred Green Bennett. Kainryn
Bowe, Dorothy Anderson. Ruth Crit
tenden and Virginia Owens, played the
ukulele and sung merry airs.
Rosea Cover Montana Table.
The Montana table, ablaze with roses
and college colors, was presided over
by Mrs. A. C. Holmes, Mrs. J. G. Ham
mer. Mrs. George L. Parker and Mrs.
T. A. John. Kansas was a symphony
in gold, its sunflower idea being car
ried out further by the appearance of
two little lads, Merrill and Philip Joss,
in blackface, with huge sunflower
petals encircling each smiling face.

Missouri Hostesses Attractive.
Missouri did herself .proud with a
group of attractive hostesses, a gor

Holding Company Is Organized by
New Owners Plans for Operat

to Cost $1,500,000.
Oregon's largest timber land deal of
recent years came to a final termination
yesterday, when deeds were passed
transferring title to 27,323.50 acres in
Clatsop, Columbia, Tillamook and
Washington counties from the Dubois
Lumber Company, headed by John Du
bois, of Pennsylvania, to the Oregon
American Lumber Company, a new cor
poration headed by David C. Eccles, of
The big pale was Initiated by an
option entered Into more than Blx
months ago. Both Jlr. Dubois and Mr.
Eccles came to Portland last week to
sign the final papers.
Just how the timber will be trans
ported to market has -ot yet been de
termined by Mr. Kccles Rnd Charles T.
Karly, manager, and Rey B. Early, sales
agent, who have charge of ths com
pany's office headquarters In Portland.
"For the reason that we have not
known for certain that the timber was
to become our property we have been
unable to negotiate definitely in the
logging road matter, but we know what
we want and what we are willing to
pay for 'the proposed road," said Mr.
Eccles yesterday.
"If we can get In right away we will
certainly do so, for we bought the
property to operate and not to hold for
speculation. Thus far we have not given
serious thought to a mill because the
logging road must come first. And, for
that matter, our proposition Is far too
big for any one mill, and mills are hard
to get Just now. Our plan will be to
operate on a logging basis, selling our
logs to various mills.
"The scarcity of labor Is one of the
serious problems which we now face,
but we are determined to get a rail
road into our property from some sec
tion and as soon as possible. Thus far
we have estimated $1,600,000 as the
probable cost of the road. Steel is hacd
to get at thiB time, but we already have
on hand a sufficient quantity to build
our road and are not worrying on that

It Is understood generally among lum

Emil Spranger was freed of the
charge of murdering Henry Melster

District Attorney Collier that the In

short statement to the court in which
he said his Investigations had con
vlnced him that Spranger shot in self
defense. The widow likewise filed, an
affidavit asking for the dismissal of

Ad Club Adopts Field Hospital Unit
About to Go to France as Spe

The Portland Ad Club decided yes
terday to adopt the Field Hospital
Unit organized by Lieutenant J. Guy
Strohm, which is to go Into training
for the front at once.
An address by W. D. 'WTiTtcomb,
former president of the Ad Club, Just
returned from the officers training
camp in California and associated with
the hospital corps with rank or ser

at the Benson Hotel yesterday that
stirred enthusiasm and it was his sug

to ask the privilege of adopting the
hospital unit as its special protege at
the front.
Mr. Whttcomb spoke vigorously
against mature men declining to en

fight the war."
Charles R. van Hlse, president or
