ants of more than half a dozen dis
tant countries, in connection with all

Probably the most unique of the
booths was labeled the "Mayflower"
and was in charge of Mrs. Henry
Chase of Salem. Airs. Chase is proud
of her ancestry and declares she is a
ctecendant of John Holland, who came
to this country aboard the Mayflower.
Included in this exhibit was a Bible
which was said to be more than 340
years old. the property of Mrs. Ellen
ICneeland of Portland.
A candlestick owned by Mrs. Sara
Stinson of Salem, which was brought
over on the Mayflower, also wasvon
ciisplay and attracted wide attention.
Other articles closely identified with
the early history of this country

most beautiful offerings in connection
with the patriotic occasion.

In Seattle Emil Oberhoffer. con
ductor of the orchestra, in an in
terview said in part:
"An actually self-supporting sym
phony orchestra is out of the ques
tion. Even in Berlin, Germany, where
there are nightly concerts, it was
found impossible. A city should view
its orchestra as it does its schools
and churches and who ever heard of
a school supported entirely by tui
tion fees? When I organized the Min
neapolis symphony orchestra 18 years
ago I had a $10,000 guarantee. Today
it is $125,000 per year. The backers
don't tell me to save they demand
the best obtainable, 'and get it. I no
longer have difficulty in getting $100

worth the $100. These three elements
constitute everything cultured that a

TRAVEL WILL BE HEAVY
Canadians to Visit Portland en
Route to South, Says Rail Agent.
The travel to California this winter
will be limited only by the ability of
the hotels in the southern state to
provide acommodations, in the opin
ion of William McMurray, general
passenger agent of the Oregon-Washington
Railroad & Navigation com
pany, who has just returned from a
trip to Vancouver and Victoria. With
exchange rates being recovered to a
considerable degree, the prospect is
that a large Canadian tourist busi
ness will turn southward. Reports
from the east denote the heaviest
winter travel in history. Canadian
tourists will, many of them, make
stops at Portland and other cities en
route to and from California, as they
will include these e-tops an a part of
their leisurely tours, eays Mr. McMur
ray. as they feel a friendly interest
in the cities of the Pacific northwest.
