School Garden Contest Is Un
usually Interesting and
Exhibit Held at Armory Proves One
of Best Imaginable and Will Be
or Great Benefit, Is Belief
of Committeemen.
From the opening of the doors at 11 1
A. M., a steady stream of people kpt
pouring; Into the Armory yesterday to
view the exhibits of the children who
have been engaged In the school gar
den contest. The vast auditorium was
. filled from end to end with a variety
. of vegetables, -fruits and flowers, wltb
a preponderance of the first-named, of
a quality so excellent as to excite the
admiration of one and all. Woodlawn
School, with a display stretching; from
sine to side or the nail, carried on an ;
the major honors, winning; The Ore
gonlan cup for the highest percentage
of gardeners among students with a
li "highest posuDie oi tvu per cent.
l nis exnioti anaea one more prqoi
I , of the fertility of the soil of Oregon.
It also showed wnat energy and per
severance can accomplish even when
applied by a tiny tot of 10. and It has
been the means of giving 6000 children
the finest . training they could possi
bly have.
- "Every citizen of Portland needs to
possess an acquaintance with the poll:
these boys and girls have begun their
acquaintance at the right age. and It
will be. in consequence, an acquaintance
that will ripen Into love as the years
roll on." was the comment of a com
mitteeman yesterday.
I.arfte Displays Sees.
Some of the largest displays were i
those from Olencoe. nicely decorated
in blue and gold; Rose City Park, with
a fine displry of fruit; Ockley Green,
which was nicely arranged: Arlet. no
ticeable for a display of huge turnips:
Krnton and Portsmouth. These were J
the leading ones out of a total of 4S
entries. In some cases the effect of
the exhibit a.i a whole was somewhat
marred by having been arranged with
a view to the prominence of .one or
more individuals.
- - Chief among Individual displays we-re
those of Harlan Stansberry. of Wood-
lawn, and Fred Kelly, of Lents. The
former had not Sufficient room on his
special table for all his produce, with
tlie result that bulky cabbages and
i other vegetables found a resting-place
on the floor. His garden was 18 fr-"t.
square, divided into four iuarters by
paths, with borders and nasturUums.
In that garden he had ' grown 'very
vegetable for which it was possible to
obtain a prize.
Fred Kelly.- 13 ytr of age. who won
second prize for the best display, alms
at putting Professor Bouquet ' out of
his Job at Corvallls.
"After I've been to high school," h
announced. "I am going on to th
Agricultural College to take a course
in agricultural science. This yeiir
have been studying my soil with
view 'to growing In the future onl
what is best suited to lt Lettuce an
. potatoes are what I paid most attention
to this year, but I have also grown
good deal of spinach, which 1 sold I
l-ents for 10 cents a bundle. What'
more. I made quite a bit at It."
School Gordea Replies Attracts.
In the center of the Woodlawn dis
play was a replica of the school gar
den's. Samples of what had been grown
In 100 of the gardens were placed in
small boxes, each of which contained
the best of the produce of one. and only
one. of those plots. One of these con
tained produce from the experimental
garden, handled by two boys-of the
eighth grade. All kinds of corn, flax,
millet, hemp, wheat, barley, oats, al
falfa and parsley were shown.
The Judges were unanimous in vole
Ing their gratification at the results.
which exceeded even the most sanguine
expectations. So much so, in fact, tha
the Judging, which was tohave been
concluded by 11 A. M., was not com
pleted till late in the afternoon. This
was caused by the closeness of com
ret I tors coupled with a desire on be
half of the arbiters to make assurance
doubly sure by Inspecting the leading
contestants several times.
The Oregonlan challenge cup. on the
table of the Woodlawn School, attract
ed much attention on account of Its
symmetrical beauty. Tall and graceful,
with 'more than a suggestion of
strength, and with three delicately
curved arms, it bore a suitable Inscrip
tion, enclosed amid grapes and vine
The judges were divided into three
sections, commercial, artistic and sci
entific. In the first-named were Miss
Lilian B. Tingle. Timothy Pearson and
J. C. Mann. Mrs. Sarah Evans, Mrs.
Allen Lewis and Frederick V. Holman
attended to the artistic, side of It, witn
Professors Bouquet. Hetzel and Dr. i
H. Chapman as judges of the acientlflo
- points.
Aaetloa Is Held.
J. F. Larsen and J. T. Wilson last
night held an auction of all the pro
duce sbown. the proceeds going to the
i School Garden Contest fund as
nucleus for next year's exhibition, when
tbs probability Is that two days will
be given over to the children and their
vegetables. What was not sold went
to the Children's Home.
Ot the general committee who so
willingly gave their services, none has
worked harder than Mrs. B. T. Voor
hurst. She witnessed no parades, pre
ferring to work for the good of the
children and the success of the contest,
and for the last week her evenings
have been devoted to the typewriter
and the fountain pen. Among others
who worked hard were: M. N. Dana.
B. T. Voorhurst, R. R. Routledge, E. J.
Jaeger. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis M. Head.
H. E. Weed. O. M. Plummer. J. F. Lar
