ffffV AD says, "Don't be afraid of
not- I mean to work my way
across this country and back to Den
mark," so says pretty, plucky little
Ann Kromann. who has recently come
from Tacoma and is on her way to her
Ann is the daughter of Mr. And Mrs.
Max H. Kromann, of 2618 South Thir
teenth street, Tacoma-- Four years ago,
in company with her brother, George,
she left Denmark for America. -
We didn't speak any English, but
we had a nne time on our Journey. We
ust had piles of fun.
And Ann shows dimplea as she smiles
over the happy memory. In fact, Ann's
smile is almost continuous and it ia
very sweet. Now she can speak Eng
lish beautifully. There is only a slight
Inflection, a fascinating little bit or an
accent that denotes her foreign birth.
Ann to Ride Across Country.
Just as soon as Ann gets to San
Francisco she intends to buy a horse
to ride on her trip across the country.
She says frankly that she can't afford
horse now. but she s counting ine
days until ner fortune will warrant the
keeping of one.
In the Puget Sound city and sur
rounding territory, every one knows
how Ann Kromann can nae. one toves
horses and is a remarkable equestri
enne. Hurdling fences, riding over the
roughest country is just as easy for
her as playing bridge is for a society
"I could pet any horse," said Ann,
"even . an old plug.
Movie Work Appeals.
"I 'am very anxiouB to get into mo
tion-pioture work in California. A girl
who isn't afraid to ride any horse or
swim any. stream surely ought to stand
a chance for a Job in a photo play.
"There was a wistful longing in
Ann's expression for a minute and
then came the rippling laugh and the
dimples and she said: -
"However, if I can't do that,' I can
take care of children, or scrub floors.
I'm little, but I'm very Btrong."
At present Ann clerking in a
glove store here, and says she likes
the work and the PorUand ' women,
who are kind to her. She learned
glove fitting in Tacoma, where she se
cured employment in a glove store.

Girl la Love With West.
"I had graduated from a grammar
school in Denmark. I knew all about
outdoor sports and I adored horses, but
that English was no easy matter.

loves the West and says she will hasten

and the plans work out she will visit
the Panama Canal as well as travel
over the United States and Europe.
Ann has a desire to see the wonders
of the earth and the tropical climes
appeal to her fancy to a certain ex

longing to put on skates and skim over
the ice will carry her to the Scandinav

directed me to the Portland Woman's
Union. That's a dandy place for t

That is Ann Kromann s opinion and

LACK OF DEVELOPMENT
Minnesota!! gays Willamette Vallej
Has Lesson to Learn.
"You ought to have some of our Min
nesota farmers in the Willamette Val
ley," says C. S. Crandall. of Owatonna,
Minn., who is visiting his daughter,
Mrs. George H. Smitton, of East
Elehteenth street wife of the assistant
general freight agent of the Great
"The principal thing that impressed
me in the Willamette valley," says Mr.
Crandall, who is a hardware merchant
and farmer of many years' experience,
"is the lack of development.
"The Willamette Valley has better
soil and climate than Northern Minne
sota, but we produce bigger crops. It
is due to the kind of farmers we have.
They are enterprising, industrious and
nothing discourages them. Farms are
not large, but we produce as much on
two acres as tbe Willamette Valley
does on ten acres. This valley needs
some of our old-fashioned Scandinavi
ans and Germans to do it"
BIG FOUR ISjCOMING HERE
Sew York Central In Portland Xot
to Handle Fast Freight of Road.
On account of the recent segregation
Of the New York Central and the Big
Four railroad systems, the New York
Central offices in Portland will not
handle the fast freight business of the
Big Four after July 1.
It la understood that the Big Four
will establish an Independent office in
Portland and in other cities - of tbe
Northwest. It Is probable that a mem
ber of the present New York Central j
staff in Portland will be appointed to J
handle the Big Four business here.
An Open Letter to the
Ethical Dental Trust
In the twenty-five yean that I nv ben a p"
ticing dentist I have never been a member of a dental
society. I refuse to join the ethical dental trust and
have been the object of malice and persecution be
cause I will not practice dentistry according to the
rules and regulations laid down by this un-American
secret cabal. I give to every man the right to prac
tice his profession as his oonscienco dictates, and I
demand the same right. There are many honorable,
broadminded ethical dentists who because of finan
cial reasons, or through fear of being branded a
"quack," submit to the dictates of the ethical dental
trust, but in their own hearts denounce the methods
used by the little bunch of ethical highbinders wh
In eacbl state assume to be the law and gospel of dentih-try. in Oregon this
ethical dental trusf has set up a high court in which it claims the right to
try any dentist on the charge of professional treason who does not con
form to their rules and regulations.
Two months ago I came to Portland and established in the Merchant
Trust building, corner of Sixth and "Washington streets, my Kixth rain
less Parker office on the Pacific Coast. Every one of my associates here,
as in all my other offices, are graduated, licensed dentmts of ezperienoe.
I have invested my own money, pay my bills, obey the laws and conduct
my business in an honorable, open and above-board manner. I ahk no
favors from the ethical dental trust and I deny that they have any right
to make any rules by which I shall conduct my business in this state. This
ethical dental trust is a close organization in restraint of trade from which
the publie is excluded. It meets in secret as a dental society and plot
how to have laws passed for the benefit of its members, and how dentista
who do not belong can be persecuted by prosecution. Under tho pretext
of the public good they are trying to put a high board f enoe around the
state of Oregon so they can unmolested drive the peoplo into their rlntchea
like sheep to the slaughter. They want a government by dentists for den
tists and if they had as much courage as they have villainy they would
have a law passed permitting them to draw and quurter every dentist who
put an advertisement in a newspaper. They are not only in a conspiracy
to rob the public but they want to keep the people in ignorance of tooth
hygiene. Because I have raised dentistry above a petty larceny business
and will not conform to their secret price list, and am trying to educate
the American people how to save their teeth, they call me a "quack." On
this principle I have staked a lifetime of labor and have a fortune invest
ed. Had I simply desired money I could have retired from practice years
ago with a competency, but the American people have been kind to me
with liberal patronage and I do not propose to stand by without a protest
and be branded a "quack" so the ethical dental trust can force the publie
to pay big fees for social position and poor dentistry. I am a graduate
dentist, holding a degree from one of the best dental colleges in America.
I am licensed to practice in half a dozen states and in Canada. I am the
equal in skill, training and experience of any dentist in Oregon. I submit
to the fairminded people of Oregon who pay the dentist's bills whether
this state shall be the exclusive professional game preserve for an ethical
dental trust, or whether the people shall say what the laws of this state
