WILLAMETTE VALLEY CHAUTAUQUA TO
OPEN NINETEENTH ANNUAL SESSION
Directors Believe Attendance During Thirteen Days' Meeting Will Exceed 40,000-Good Programme Arranged in
' Picturesque Gladstone Park Noted Lecturers and Musicians to Be Heard Baseball an Attraction.
HEN the gata of old Gladstone
Fark swing open Tuesday morn
log: the 19th annual session of
the Willamette Valley Chautauqua will
begin. The directors, realizing that
they have selected the greatest pro
gramma In Chautauqua "history are
confident that within the ne.it IS days
the attendance -will pass the 40.000
The Willamette Valley Chautauqua
ts a time-tried, flourishing institution
nd yet not in any sense a dividend-,
payer. The reason is- simple:. The
Chautauqua graveyard Is overflowing
with the remains of chautauquas which
started out under kindly stars, but the
.commercial side, the deaire of the pro
moters to get rich soon snuffed out
the careers of many promising insti
tutions. But sot so with the Glad
stone Chautauqua. Directors and
stockholders are all broad-minded men
and women of Portland. Oregon City
and Gladstone who realize first of all
' the great field of Chautauqua work and
who are perfectly content in the social,
religious, educational upHft of their
fellow men. when no other reward for
their -efforts Is In sight. The best
In music, lectures, education. . recrea-
tlom and dignified . entertainment is
brought to Gladstone's famous auditor
ium and prices are fixed on a basis of
absolute expense. This Is the mission
"of the directors, and for 18 years. thy
and their predecessors have labored
rhard to bring the best within reach
of all and they have succeeded aa
mlrably. Park Is aBaaty SsoC.
Picturesque Gladstone Park, as
thousands of Chautauqua-lovtng Port
landers will testify. Is onr of Oregon's
beauty spots. Originally old "Chief
Jake" and his Clackamas tribesmen
held their own ehantauquaa and pow
wews ob a rooky monad In the north
ern corner of the present park. Of
course. In those days the hundreds of

beautiful firs, wnicn bow r w

" fancy, and. according to old Indian
George. on of Gladstonea landmarks.
-r-f "In those days I see dear. deer, to
f- ". deen ....... ,
The park has retainea au its mm
beauty. The Indian pow-wow mound Is
still there and even the old lako. which
has no apparent InTet or outlet and
In places not bottom, which pioneers
say is a rock-walled mystery, has kept
its motionless surface throughout the
.r.v decades, since the days when
the redraen gathered on Ua banks.
It has always been the desire of the
7- "5- 7-&vJ' ,
Chautauqua managers to retain
natural beauty of the park.
In 1894 Harvey E. Cross, owner of
the land, leased It to the Chautauqua
Association for 50 years, the only con
sideration being that the Chautauqua
should convene annually during that
period. Mr. Cross Is the present
Mayor or Gladstone, has been one of
Oregon City's leading lawyers for the
last 33 years and has taken a most ac
tive Interest in the Chautauqua work
from the beginning. '
Blc Aaditorlam Built.
One of the earliest accomplishments
for the baby Chautauqua was the erec
tion of the large auditorium. ' This
building is in present use and is re
garded as one. of the finest open-air
auditoriums in the state. It is simply
an Immense hemispherical roof, cov
ered by 2.000,000 shingles. The archi
tecture Is peculiar but the acoustics
are nearly perfect. Besides the audi
torium a large restaurant building, pa
vtllion for drill work, numerous bunga
lows and buildings are . on the
grounds. At the lower corner of the
park the athletic field lies. An ex
cellent quarter-mile track incloses the
baseball diamond where the Chautau
qua baseball games are held each year.'
Most Important In the park Improve
ments for the 19th session is the in
stallation of a complete sewage sys
tem. An Immense septic tank with
double exhausts has been constructed
for the convenience of the guests and
modern sanitary improvements have
been put in. With the water system

Speaking of the Clackamas. Glad
stonlans call it their own river and
are very proud of this famous trout
stream. Only a few years ago Kudyard
Kipling fished-in the swirlinir eddies
for the game trout and later voiced
his sentiments . concerning the beauti
ful Clackamas River in one of his
well-known . literary efforts. The
Clackamas dashes along almost within
a stone's throw of the Park and its
picturesque banks are the setting for
many, picnics during the session.
