ALL. MAY ADVISE FESTIVAL
BOARD ABOtT QIUK-N.
Every citizen of Portland is to
have an opportunity to assist the
Rose Festival Board in planning
for the election of the queen and
princesses who are to reign over
the coming Festival.
At the request of the, directors
The Oregonian will receive writ-
ten suggestions as to the best
method by which a queen may be
chosen. The most meritorious of
these plans will be published and
all the letters will be turned over
to the Rose Festival Association
for a final decision. Letters may
be addressed to Queen Contest
Editor. The Oregonian.
The announcement that the board of
directors of the Rose Festival is seek
ing advice and assistance from the
general public as to methods of select
ing a queen and six princesses for the
Rose Festival has attracted wide inter
est, as is evidenced by the receipt of
scores of letters addressed to the queen
contest manager in care of The Ore
gonian, within a day after the an
nouncement of the board was published.
The letters continue to be received
by The Oregonian in increasing num
bers and it seems apparent that the
Festival board is to receive advice in
Nearly all of the writers suggest the
selection of the queen and princesses
from photographs. Some urge that the
photographs bo published in the papers
and others suggest that they be merely
displayed in some prominent place in
the city. Suggestions as to methods
of selecting the winner vary between
suggestions for selection by a commit
tee ami selection by popular vote.
Seven Most Beautiful Sought.
"We must secure seven of the most
beautiful girls in Portland." writes H.
K. Mcintosh. "All that is required is
a picture of each girl entering the
contest, from which seven of the most
beautiful may be selected. Then their
names- may be put into a box, from
which one shall be drawn, and then
you have your Rose Festival queen."
Mrs. B. P. Boland, 1300 Campbell
street, suggests that In the papers
.protographs of girls be published and
the public be asked to vote their choice,
at some stated time, from coupons in
the papers. The highest number of
votes would elect the queen and the
six next highest the princesses.
"The queen must be a resident of
Portland." says the writer, and then
adds naively, "there might be an age
Artificial Beauty Gets Taboo.
"I think a good plan would be to
request the photographs of really beau
tiful girls not artificial beauty, how
ever," suggests another. "Choose a
committee of several people to select
possibly the 20 best, exhibit these in
some prominent place, such as the win
dow on the first floor of the Yeon
building, where a publio voting booth
should be placed, and let those who
wish to, vote. This surely would de
cide the question of beauty, which
should be the only consideration, un
derstood, of course, that it is the fresh,
sweet bloom of beauty and not artl
ficed." E. E. McClaran suggests a com
mittee of three with directions not to
regard popularity of the candidates and
to select from photographs on the
basis of beauty. From the photographs
the commitee could pick out the ones
who appear most eligible and request
them to appear before the committee
"Action and manners are big fac
tors." explains the writer.
