14 TIIE SUNDAY OltEGONIAN, PORTLATTD, JUNE 13, 1915. 1916 FESTIVAL IS BEING DISCUSSED Verdict Unanimous That Cele bration, of 1915 Excelled All Former Observances. YEAR'S LESSONS ANALYZED Music. Illuminations and Flowers Declared, Most Xeeessary Attri butes Lack of General Dec orations Only Criticism. A3 they say OTer in Europe when a King dies, 'the King is dead; Long live the King!" so- the people of Port land now are exclaiming: "The Rose Festival is over; hurrah for the Rose Festival." Not content with staging the "best ever" this year, the Festival fans are wondering already how they can go ne better next year. Of course, there Is going to be another one next year, and the year after that, and the year after that, and so on ad infinitum. It's a long, long time until the 1916 Festival fully 51 weeks but it's ndt too early to begin talking about pos sibilities. Three things that predominated at this year's Festival must he preserved next year and in the future. Of that everyone is certain. And those three things are music, illuminations and flowers. Obviously, it wouldn't be much of a Festival without all three of these es sentials particularly the flowers but people are insistent that the illumina tions and the music shall be emphasized as they were this year in contrast with some former years. Festival Center Bir Attraction. Bright lights attracted great crowds to the Festival Center every night last week, although the Festival Center was nearly half a mile from the business center. The "music attracted additional thou sands. But the display of flower at tracted most of all. "We certainly must continue the Fes tival Center," declared Kmery Olm stcad, . president of the Festival As sociation, yesterday. "It was one of the best features this year and con tains many possibilities of develop ment." Other directors agree that the Fes tival Center- not only must be .con tinued but enlarged. It was the cruci ble in which the varying strains of carnival enthusiasm were amalgamated into the essential of Festival success the festal spirit. x More than ever before this festal jauirit was manifest in Pnrtland this year. "Whatever we do we should aim to develop , more of this spirit," said O. M. I'lummer, one of the directors. . "The purpose of the festival should be to please- the masses of our people as well as the visitors." Deooratlat Found Lacklnr.' Probably in only one particular was this year's event deficient, and that was in the decorations. The decorat ing done by the Festival Association was unexampled in the decade that Portland has been in the festival business, but no corresponding inter est was displayed by private indi viduals. Only a few of the principal business and office buildings were in holiday attire. "I hope that by another year we can induce people to decorate," says Jacob Kanzler, another director. "This, to gether with the decorations acquired by the association, should add much to the beauty of future festivals." It is possible that Portland will rot stand for much more talk of cut ting out the electrical parade. It is no figure of speech to say that the parade this year was a howling success. The people literally howled with delight and shrieked and screamed as well at the antics of the Jov-ians with their cruel derrick and their flaming fur nace iri which they "roasjed"' their vic time. ' - The Jovians evidently have started something. It will be hard to" keep them out of future electrical parades. The public doubtless will demand their continued participation. Credit Given Co-operation. "It only shows what can be done by co-operation," says F. TV. Uild, the director who had charge of the elec trical details. "So far aj5 the parades are con cerned, it is agreed that they surpassed all previous attempts of the kind," says .Director Dean Vincent. "The chil dren's parade long has been a perma nent feature and is so well established that the public will demand it from year to year. The others, too, must be continued." It is probable that the Festival Association will have enough money to meet all its bills. After the affairs of the recent festivities are disposed of the present board will retire and a new set of directors will be elected. On account of the success of the present board's efforts, there is much talk already of their re-election, but most of them declare that they are willing to pass the honors around and to allow another set of business men to take charge for next year. In that way, they point out, new enthusiasm will be instilled and a greater variety of ideas brought forth. The full membership of the present directorate is Emery Olmstead, presi dent: John F. Carroll, C. F. Berg. Ira V. Powers, Harry L. Corbett, J. Fred Larson, O. M. Plummer, Jacob Kanzler, George L. Baker. S. C. Pier, F. W. Hiia and Dean Vincent. LADIES OF GRAND ARMX "WIN Float in Friday Parade Draws Much Attention apd $150 Award. One of the most attractive floats in Friday's Festival parade was that en tered by the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republie, which took the prize of $150 -for the most original creation of its kind. - This float was entered by several circles of the organization, which Is composed of the wives, widows, blood relatives of Grand Army veterans and Army nurses of the Civil War." No others are eligible.' The following circles-joined together for the purpose of making this entry: Winslow Meade Circle, No. 7; Shlloh Circle, No. 19. of Lents; Blackmar Circle, No. 20, of Sell wood; Peter A. Porter Circle,, No. 25, University Park; General Custer Cir cle, No. 27, Sixtieth avenue and Forty fourth street Southeast, and George H. Snell Circle, No. 29, of Milwaukie. Mrs. Jennie Beamer, who represent ed the 'nurse on the float,. Is the only surviving Civil War nurse living in Oregon. The other figures represent ed one of the principal aims of the or ganization to instruct the children In patriotism. This float headed the delegation of the Ladies of the Grand Army, some of whom walked, while others -of their number rode in automobiles. The Women's Relief Corps of the Grand . Army also participated in the parade and had a placet in line imme diately following the Grand Army vet erans. Next came the float and the members of the Ladles of the Grand Army. - ' ' ' EXHIBIT DECISION IS EOUGHT Hawthorne and Laurelliurst Want Floral Exhibit Honors Settled. The contest between the Hawthorne and Laurelliurst community exhibits in the Festival Center, although shown to be a tie in the of ficial , rating of the judges, continues between the commit tees in charge of the exhibits and has the apparent status of a deadlock with them rather than a tie. . The Hawthorne committee flatly de clared after the final announcements of the score were made that they would refuse to accept the verdict of the judges. Laurelhurst's committee also expressed disappointment over the re sult, but expressed its : willingness - to abide by any method of settlement, de vised by the committee in charge of tbe competition. Neither side submitted a formal pro test yesterday, but it is expected that this may be done before the matter is ;losed. John F. Carroll, director of the Fes tival .Center, said yesterday that' he expected the general-committee to be able to decide upon a manner of set tling the dispute that would be satis factory to all parties. The first and second prizes are $100 and $75 respectively, but committees of both of the leading communities de clare that the money prize is not the consideration they are after, but that they are striving for the honor of first place among the communities of Port land as floral centers, and they - feel that a tie. no matter how the award may be adjusted, will be unsatisfactory. Eschrlcht Pony Cart Wins Prize. "Winner of second prize in the pony cart division in the floral parade on Thursday was the entry of Miss Marie Eschrlcht. Both the pony and the cart were nicely decorated with flowers and attracted much attention. Miss Mar garet Cook rode with Miss Eschrlcht In the parade. VISITOR ENDS HIS LIFE Allen G.

Yesterday he asked Mrs. Shawk to get him some tobacco.

FRUIT SAVING EXPLAINED Agricultural College Worker Ad dresses Lents Grange. "There Is nearly 50 per cent -waste of fruits and vegetables in Oregon that may be eliminated through the simple process -of canning the surplus that is thrown away, according to the methods being taught to boys' and girls' indus trial clubs by the United States De partment of Agriculture and the Ore gon Agricultural College." said Pro fessor F. L. Griffin, of the extension department of the Agricultural College, yesterday in his address before the Lents Grange. Professor Griffin gave a demonstration before the grange and explained the canning processes. He said corn clubs were first started in the Southern states among the boys and girls, and that in the past two years industrial clubs of boys and girls have been organized in Oregon, until there now are 11.000 boys and girls in Oregon enrolled in such clubs to be trained in thrift and making money. "In forming these industrial clubs we are operating with the schools and communities." continued Professor Griffin, "and the boys and girls are being trained in a useful occupation, to help their parents and reduce the cost of living. These clubs save waste age. "In Portland two schools have se cured the canning apparatus. I can guarantee that all the produce canned will be sold at a profit." The grange gave Professor Griffin's work its hearty indorsement. . Samuel P. Lockwood, candidate for school director, outlined to the grange what his policy will be if elected next Saturday.

GERMAN PAPERS COMBINED New Daily I'odcr 'amc of Oregon Deutsche Zcituiig- to Appear." A'new German ' daily af ternoon pa per will come into existence in Port land, in the - near future.. With its weekly edition it will supplant three existing German newspapers now pub lished in PortlandL The new daily, which will begin as an eight page, seven column sheet, will be known as the Oregon Deutsche Zeitung. The weekly edition will be named the Nachrlchten, to continue the German paper founded by J. J. Kern in Portland 28 years ago, under that name.

Nearly throe-score Oregon Presiden tial postmasters left yesterday for their home towns after attending the state postal convention in Portland. The convention concluded with a ban quet on the last .night of the Rose Festival. It was served at the Port land Hotel. There were nearly 100 persons present. "It was a gfreat trip for many of the visitors," said Postmaster Myers, of Portland, last night. 'We were ex ceedingly, glad to have them come to Portland, and they seemed to be equally glad that they had come after they took in the Festival. The trip involved considerable financial outlay o those postmasters from the towns farthest from Portland, but they all said they had got their money's worth, and that was what we wanted." Postmaster Myers said that several of the visiting postmasters had never visited Portland before, and these especially were greatly surprised with the city they found. One. in particu lar, after 25 -yearn' residence in Ore gon, was making his first visit to this city. Kxpeeting to find a medium sized town, he was wriiazed to find Portland a large and bustling city. The visitors were felicitated at the banquet by United States Senators Lane and Chamberlain upon the effi ciency of the postal service and the conduct of its operations under their charge. In the afternoon preceding the ban quet a photograph was taken at the Portland Hotel showing all hut a few of the visitors who had strayed away, lured by Ihn gayety of the streets.
