OREGON EXPOSITION BUILDING.
Ban .Francisco, Oct. 19. The Oregon
"family" at the exposition has changed
somewhat In personnel since the open
ing day, February 20, but not In per
sonality. From resident commissioner
to the Janitor, the one idea has pre
vailed, of hospitality and cheerfully re
ceiving the public, of making them feel
at home in Oregon and want a home
At the head of the family is the resi
dent commissioner, now Robert A.
Booth, of Eugene. He is not head in
name alone, but in fact. To him all
matters of final appeal go for adjust
ment. He is on the main floor of the
building most of the day. meeting
quests, greeting formal callers from
other state and foreign buildings and
solving problems which always arise
in the best of programmes. He knows
the exact state of the board's finances.
He keeps In touch with the exposition's
general plans and decides when and to
what extent Oregon shall participate.
In addition to all this, he is In constant
demand for - exposition dinners, lunch
eons, banquets and receptions and he
must attend these affairs whether or
not it is personally agreeable to him,
for he is the representative of the state
and goes in his official capacity.
Diplomatic Ability Demanded.
Also he must assist the hostess in
deciding to what extent Oregon must
entertain, properly to repay her obli
gations, and just what guests at the
exposition must be entertained and
bow. It is a position calling for diplo
macy, good Judgment and a keen
knowledge of men. v
Commissioner Booth was here to start
the Oregon building on its successful
career, he made the main speech at
the opening day exercises, and he is
here again In ths closing days to keep
the sailing serene. The commissioner's
wife is also in a position of responsi
bility, as she becomes hostess, sharing
honors with the official hostess, and
dispenses hospitality with her husband.
Airs. Booth Is ably furthering her hus
band's efforts in this respect, as have
the wives of the preceeding commis
sioners. Other commissioners and their
wives who have given of their time and
talents to the state's service are O, M.
Clark, president, and Mrs. Clark; Mr.
and Mrs. John F. Logan, Mr. and Mrs.
W. L. Thompson, of Pendleton, and C.
L. Hawley, of McCoy. Mr. Hawley is
expected to arrive with Mrs. Hawley
for the term succeeding Mr. Sooth.
UosteH' Duties Arduous.
Another position of responsibility, so
far as' the general public is concerned,'
is that of hostess. She, like the com
missioner, must - attend exposition
functions, must graciously meet dig
nitaries from all over the world, and,
what is; every bit as Important, must
meet the general public as it surges
day after day through the Oregon build
ing. She is on duty all day and then
must plan Oregon's entertaining. In
conjunction with the commissioner, and
especially see that the women who
should be are entertained. Mrs. Charles
A. Gray fills this important post with
thoroughness, graciousness and unself
ishness. Oregon has had two hostesses, the
first being Mrs. Thomas G. Hailey, of
Portland, who served the state graci
ously during the first part of the ex
N. R. Moore, with an assistant, is the
publicity head for Oregon. Mr. Moore
was editor of the Gazette-Times, of
Corvallis, but he has since sold his
paper. He is thoroughly conversant
with his state's resources and oppor
tunities, is an excellent writer and a
man who thinks first and writes aftar
Management In Good Hands.
George M. Hyland, of Portland, Ii
manager of the building. He has been
with the exposition from the opening.
His direct assistants are Benjamin C.
Sheldon, of the Medford Commercial
Club, who for several months past has
been an able floor manager: A. E. Will
iams, auditor, from Linnton, who is
considered . one of the most valuable
men in the entirA organization, and
John Dennis, of Hillsboro, superintend
ent of the building, who has faithfully
buffeted all kinds of wind and weather
for the good of his state.
Ralph Staehll, of Portland, is moving
picture operator and lecturer and also
does newspaper work. Mrs. Jack Bus
ter, formerly of Eugene, is custodian
of the Oregon, exhibit in the Palace of
j-.oucation. and Miss Florence Hatch
performs a similar duty in the beautiful
art room in the Oregon building. Miss
Lillian A. Hanson Is stenographer and
Jack Hyland Is the busy boy in the
C. N. Ravlin is chief of horticulture
for Oregon in general, but fighter for
Hood River in particular, as are all
beings who hail from that planet of
big red apples, 1 find. However, he
is perfectly fair-minded in his dealing
with the rest of the state, and In Ore
son's section of the Palace of Horti
culture you will find every part of the
state Impartially represented; it Is only
in the sacred precincts of the "ramily"
that his partiality finds expression.
Oscar Freytag. of Oregon City, is chief
of agriculture and as keen on grains
and grasses as the other ehif is on
big red apples Mrs. Freytag has ably
assisted her husband.
Counties Interests Represented.
The county heads, William I Tay

land: J. A. Lackey, of Eastern Oregon
a big man for a big field J. A. Ward,
of Coos and Curry counties Marsh

Klamath Falls, and E. M. Warren, of
Lane County, are representative men
of their communities. All have ranches

lives down in the city and he Is not
an early riser, so he failed to be in
his proper place. The picture had to

A. L. Bostwick, of the I'niversity;
Sam Michael, also of the University;
Harry M. Johnston, Arnold Funk and
R. C. Wright, of the Agricultural Col

College Seniors on Duty.
The college seniors at present on

Dorothy Passmore. Lorene Parker,

ner for the portion of the "family" that
resides in the building.
i.. N. Kingsland is the building me

the always-efficient- janitor; Frank
Vail is a moving-picture operator;
Frank Keegan is assistant janitor; A.
H. Hansen is ' night watchman and
Lawrence Joel is porter; of this last
group only Hansen and Joel are from
Oregon. Hansen, is a rancher in Crook
County, and will return to his ranch at
the close of the exposition. He is a
hard worker, ambitious and loyal. Joel
was for many years porter in the Port
land Hotel. "
Mrs. Philip Slnnott and Mrs. J. A.
Ward assist their husbands in their
county work. Last of all, little Pru
dence Jane Gray, three-year-old grand
daughter of Oregon's hostess, a guest
at present in the building, who styles
herself hostess of the dolls' house. The
"family"" has never been without some
bright, interesting Oregon child since
the Exposition opened. The days and
ways of young John Logan are re
called with joy and laughter; also Dor
othy Logan. Then there was James
Tuttle, the Clarks' grandson, and lately
Bobbie ' Booth, a nephew of Commis
sioner Booth, whose sweet nature shone
out of a rarely beautful face; "Bobbie"
has had a great deal of illness and
his face bespeaks the beautiful pa
tience and serenity that 'sometimes
marks rare natures that have suffered.
Every one loved Bobbie. .
Soon now, the family will break up.

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23. Closing; 'a

Trenches Mill Stand for Years.
Well, I was in those trenches of the
abandoned Blonie line yesterday, and
better ones I never saw. Of massive
log construction and reinforced by
great transverse timbers, they show
no signs of falling in despite Autumn
rains, and they wilL stand for several
years. Determined men could certain
ly have made a brilliant resistance
there. But there was no brilliant re
sistance in front of Warsaw. By bora
bardment and by the threat of envel
opment the Germans simply shouldered
the Russians out.
This beautiful Blonie line, which vas
to have held till doomsday, held about
two weeks. It is exactly half way
between Sochaczew and the center of
Warsaw, and behind it is still another
line of admirably constructed, trenches
which cut deep into the plain just in
front of the western environs of the
tewn. Those trenches were never
stormed. The Germans found them
empty when they came up to them.
Between the triangle of death and
Warsaw the devastation is terrible, for
In that tract it was not a case of
leisurely field sieges, but of a swift ad

Approaching the town from the north

of soldier dead.
Beyond the borders of- the triangle

monotone of roofless churches, shat
