All elective and appointive officers

Principal Steele introduced the stu

school in 1911, first with the Council
form, but this was changed to the
commission form when Portland
adopted commission government. He
says that the method has worked out
well so far. He does not turn over

plan Is highly educational and practi

While there will be many community
celebrations of Independence day on
July 6, which is the official day this
year, since July 4 comes on Sunday, the
most important observance will be the
"Americanization Day" celebration,
which will be held on Multnomah Field,
under the auspices of the Chamber of
Commerce and various patriotic and
national organizations of the city.
The movement, for this kind of a
celebration is nation-wide, and the pur
pose in view is outlined effectively by
Theodore Roosevelt in an article writ
ten for the July Metropolitan, In which
he says in part:
"The proposal is to make the Fourth
of July this year an Americanization
day, when racial barriers and prejudices
are swept aside, when differences of
education, language, ancestry, occupa
tion are forgotten, and the American
citizen who is born such celebrates the
day in honor of the naturalized citi
zen primarily with a view to making
.him absolutely and without reserva
tion an American. The committees
that have had this matter in charge
have been working through 'The Im
migrants in America Review.'
"In its poster it sets out that Un
cle Sam's problem Is to take the 13
million Immigrants in the United
States and offer them real and not
nominal citizenship, to teach them to
become Americans and nothing else
but Americans, and to make them feel
at home here In the United States and
able to profit In full from the ad
vantages our country offers In sum
to make them feel that they are self
respecting citizens of our Nation, with
their interests 'and their affections
deeply rooted In our soil.
National Consciousness Needed.
"To do this It is necessary to give
them national consciousness. They
must feel that they -are Americans
among Americans; that they are part
of America and have a share in and
a duty toward American Institutions.
Portland Is preparing this year to
make its participation in this new Na
tional movement most noteworthy. Def
inite plans for the programme were
outlined at a meeting Tuesday at the
Chamber of Commerce, and many sub
committees are working with enthu
siasm to complete the preparations for
participation of native-born and nat
uralized American citizens in the cere
monies. It ia predicted that between
20.000 and 25,000 will throng Multno
mah Field at 10 o'clock Monday morn
ing, July 5, when the programme is to
Flags are to be given to every per
son In the crowd, and the pledge of
allegiance to the United States will be
repeated under most solemn ceremonies.
School children, 2000 strong, will sing
patriotic songs, and there will be nu
merous other impressive musical fea
tures in which various National singing
societies will participate.
F. C. Pozzi, who is in charge of the
committee on co-operation of the Port
land societies representing various na
tionalities, says that all will be rep
resented. Dr. F. H. Dammasch is mak
ing especial efforts in working up the
general musical programme.
Patriotic Sermons Arranged.
Co-operating with the Chamber of
Commerce In preparing for the cele
bration are the Grand Army of the
Republic and its affiliated bodies, the
Sons and Daughters of the American
Revolution, the various National so
cieties, the Boy Scouts and Campfire
Girls and the schools of the city.
The general committee consists of
Robert Krohn, Mark Woodruff, L. R.
Alderman, Dr. F. H. Dammasch, Henry
Harkvon, F. C. Pozzi, T. B. McDevitt,
James McCurren, H. C. Dittrich and
A. E. Borthwlck.
As a preliminary to the great cele
bration the churches of the city are
contemplating special patriotic serv
ices and sermons on Sunday, July 4,
the day preceding.
The "Americanization day", pro
gramme will be held in the forenoon
and the various community celebra
tions will be held for the most part in
Irvington, as usual, will hold an
elaborate celebration with games and
contests for men. women and children
throughout the afternoon, and an even
ing celebration with dancing.,
Kenilworth Is preparing an old-fashioned
Fourth-of-July celebration with
everything except the fireworks. Judge
Kavanaugh and Senator Lane will be
the speakers of the day, and the Span
ish War Veterans' drum corps, with
a band and several soloists, will fur
nish the musical features of the programme.
