SPIRIT OF VICTORY DOMINANT
Pageant of Many Battlefields
Cheered by Thousands.
AIRPLANE DASHES THRILL
Soldiers, Sailors and Marines Led

BY BEN HUE LAMrMAX.
Defenders of the faith they -were,
those lads in all the uniforms of serv
ice, land and sea, who marched through
Portland's rose-strewn streets yester
day afternoon in the grand military
ajid naval review or the Rose Festival
of 1319. Their bands played the gallant
old airs to which men have tramped
and charged and died on scores of
fields. And the festival crowds, uncov
ered to the colors, sped them on their
'ay with salvos of cheering.
If one could have called the roll of
that pageant, company after .company
of lithe young fighting men, now back
jain to the tasks of peace could have
called it by battlefields the famous
fights of America's troops in France
would have arisen in ringing response.
Soissons, the Argonne. St. Mihiel, Cha
teau-Thierry, night raids and desperate
bombing parties, all would have an
swered. For the many hundreds that
passed in long review came from all
the divisions of the overseas forces
tempered and tried veterans.
Parade la Significant.
The storm lanes of the North tea, the
long convoys across the submarine
haunted Atlantic, the desperate dash
for a diving submarine, the race for a
running raider these would have an
swered for the sailors who trod so
Jauntily along, merry and tanned and

the apex of triumphant realization of
the deeper meaning of the 1919 festival,
rhich bears the prefix "Victory," and
which pays its meed of appreciative
tribute to the boys who entered the
world war in vindication of those
sturdy principles that Americans hold
dear, even to the death.
Daring Air Leaps WitiFued.
Though the parade was distinctly the
feature of the day's schedule, guests
of the festival lacked not for other en
tertainment. They saw the army air
squadron, led by Lieutenant-Colonel
"Watson, outdo its reckless acrobatics
of the first day. thousands of feet
above the neck-stretched city. They
witnessed the rushing leap of the sea
planes from the Willamette, saw them

smiling, sweet-faced woman who wore

And they laughed, those thousands of
light-hearted visitors, and cheered and
coached vociferously when the boy en
trants of the roller-skating marathon
sped down the asphalt in a contest that
has been for months the most antici
pated event of boydom.
Victory Spirit IVrnonlf led.
They held their breaths in awe as a
great ship, new from the hands of the
workmen, left the ways and entered
her clement, the creamy foam at her
bow and her decks gay with pennants
and colors a ship christened by the
goddess of victory and dedicated to the
service of America and the world on
the high seas.
But the parade, above all else, though
it lucked the colorful quality of other
I'ageants, came close to the heart of the
festival. For it personified, in the
stride of the very lads who made pos
sible the. death of tyranny, the spirit
with which America entered the war
and won her way through to the final
victory. There is something about
marching men, with their colors flung
out to the wind and the sun, with their
bands playing them along and par
ticularly about the brightness of the
I lag that grips one at the heart and
throws the head back, and makes one
glad, indeed, to be an American. What
ever the "reds" may have to offer, it
. cannot be so fine as this a sentiment
sanctified by spilled blood and memo
ries finer than life itself.
Throngs Outpour Affection.
And so they came down the street,
and the festival leaned toward them
with flowers and cheers just as it
should lean in an unprompted out
pouring of loyal affection.
With the way cleared by Sergeant
Frank Ervin and his men of the police
motorcycle squad, followed by a car
bearing Chief of Tolice Johnson, Senior
Captain Moore, Deputy City Attorney
Stadter, driven by Patrolman Frank
Pratt, the parade set forth at 2:45 from
Fourteenth and Columbia streets, with

KNOX RESOLUTION TO
COME UP NEXT WEEK
BITTER FIGHT TO SEPARATE
LEAG I'D FROM PACT LOOMS.
Supporters of Move Want Early De
cision So It Will Reach Paris Be
fore Treaty Is Signed.
WASHINGTON, June 12. The resolu
tion tif Senator Knox of Pennsylvania,
a former republican secretary of state,
to have the senate declare definitely
it cannot accept the league of notions
interwoven with the peace treaty, was
put on the calendar of the senate today
for consideration early next week.
In reporting the measure the foreign
relations committee amended it, how
ever, to strike out the section which
would have declared it a policy of the
American government to co-operate in
combating any further menace to the
peace of Europe. The provision was
eliminated by friends of the resolu
tions after it became apparent that
otherwise favorable committee action
on the measure might be endangered.
On the motion to amend, as well as
on the final vote for a favorable re
port, all the democratic members voted
in the negative and in each case they
were joined by Senator McCumber, re
publican of North Dakota, a league
supporter. On final approval the vote
stood eight to seven. Two unsuccess
ful motions to postpone action by the
committee until next week were made
by Senator Pittman, democrat of Ne
vada, and when Senator Knox later
asked unanimous consent to present
the favorable report to the senate, the
request at first was blocked by Sena
tor Robinson, democrat of Arkansas.
Mr. Robinson withdrew his objection,
however, upon an agreement that the
senate should adjourn until Monday so
there would be no debate on the resolu
tion this week.
When the measure comes up the first
of the week its supporters will try to
press it to an early vote so that if
adopted it will reach the Versailles
conference before the signing of the
treaty. The league supporters are ex
pected to make a bitter fight against
any such action. While they disclaim
any intention to conduct a filibuster,
they say they will not permit a vote
until the resolution has been discussed
GRADUATE LISTED AS DEAD
Harvey C". Condon of Class of 1879,
Expected to Attend Reunion.
UNIVERSITY" OF OREGON. Eugene,
June 12. (Special.) Harvey C Con
don, graduate of the university in the
class of 187?, is expected to attend the
reunion of his class on its fortieth an
niversary, to be held here next Satur
day, notwithstanding the fact that his
name has been listed for more than six
years in university records as the only
deceased member of this class of six.
Mr. Condon is now. living- on a ranch
at Vaughn, Wash., near Tacoma. In
early manhood he was a lawyer and
banker in Gilliam county, and the
county seat, Condon, is named after
him. He is the nephew of the late Dr.
Thomas Condon, pioneer Oregon geol
ogist, who for 30 years headed the de
partment of geology in this university.
The error in the records was no
ticed by Mr. Condon s cousin, Mrs. Kllen
Condon McCornack of Eugene, who is
a member of the class of 1878, the first
ever graduated here.
BEER AND WINE GET BOOST
American Medical Association, in
Meeting, Hears Argument.
ATLANTIC CITY, X. J., June 12.
Beers and wine of low alcoholic con
tont are not "intoxicating."' On the
other hand they are healthful and their
sale under close state and federal su
pervision .should be continued!, declared
Dr. Lambert Ott of Philadelphia, ad
dressing the American Medical associa
tion here today. Ir. Ott spoke on 40
years' observation among beer, wine
and whisKy drinkers.
"It has been my observance that war
beer and wines of low alcoholic per
centage are not harmful, but on the
other hand are a real aid to digestion,"
he said. "The sale should be closely
supervised by the authorities."

brotherhood has a membership, of more

TRIUMPH IS CELEBRATED
Al Kader's Band and- Patrol
Factor in Victory.
PRELIMINARY PLANS MADE
As Soon as Result oT Victory Is
Known Many Temples Make
Reservations for Headquarters.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.. June 12. (Spe
cial.) After the most vigorous fight
ever known in the history of the Mys
tic Shrine of North A'nerica, the Im
perial council today, by a vote of 359 to
142. decided on hclding the 46th im
perial council session in Portland, Or..
June 8 to 11, 1920.
Portland's famous band and .jiatrol.
assisted by the band and patrol of Nile,
temple. Seattle, and aided by the
Shrine temples of the Pacific coast and
the northwest, was a factor in winning
the convention fight.
Diplomatic Ork tounfa.
New Orleans put up a vigorous op
position and the fight was a real horse
race from the minute the Shrine fes
tivities began last Monday until after
noon today. The fact that Al Kader
temple of Portland sent Harvey Wells,
state insurance commissioner, to In
dianapolis a week in advance had much
to do not only with the success of the
arrangements made for the entertain
ment cf Portland and the northwest,
but with the convention victory.
The plans for the fight were well in
hand by the time the northwest dele
gation reached the city and a liberal
use of display advertising and news
paper publicity spread the propaganda
of Portland throughout the great
crowd, estimated at no less than 50,000
lrtlnnda Victory Celebrated.
Portland's victory was celebrated in
hilarious fashion during the afternoon
and evening at the downtown hotels
and on the streets. The bands of Al
Kader and Nile were joined by the
New Orleans band In mass formation
and worked ov-rtime in tooting for the

"New Orleans is not sore," declared
one Jerusalem temple noble. "Far from
it. We arc good sports and are al
ready making plans to take as big a
crowd to Portlarid as we have had in
Indianapolis. But wc are going to
ask for th3 1921 convention. We don't
believe in quilting."
Potentate W. J. Hofmann of Al Ka
der temple, who was responsible for
the major portion of the arrangements
for the trip and who planned the ad
vertising campaign which had a great
part in winning the convention, was
overjoyed at the victory won for Port
land. "The Rose City. In -winning this
convention of Shriners, has had a great
honor conferred upon her," he said.
"But at the same time she has incurred
a tremendous obligation. It is' a gi
gantic task to entertain such a gather
ing as has "been held here in Indian
apo'is. Portland is equal to it, I know
well, but it is none too soon to say
that all our facilities will be taxed to
the utmost and our hospitality must b
laid on a foot thick if we are to make
good on our promises to the Shriners
Of North America."
Delegates on Way Home.
The northwest delegations are pre

ers will be en route by morning.
election of the place of the next
meeting, the election of Leo V. Young
worth of Al Malakiah temple, Los An
geles, to be imperial outer guard, and
the installation of new members of
the imperial divan this afternoon at
Murat temple brought to a close the
business of the 45th annual session.
The committee on time and place of
the 1920 convention, knowing that it
was divided upon the two cities seek
ing tlie session, made no recommenda
tion. When the vote was announced
the Portland band and chanters poured
into the temple and, swarming upon
the stage, played and sang amid cheers
from Al Kader delegates.
Paycaoloary Factor la Klicbt.
Psychology was a ractor in the se
lection of the convention city. Had the
weather here been chilly or rainy, the
Shriners pointed out, the council un
doubtedly would have chosen New Or
leans. After perspiring under the
Hoosier sun for several days, however,
the council was inclined to the Oregon
city In spite of the fact that New Or
leans nobles had maintained that
Louisiana was the favorite in the race.
