for 1016 Spectacle.
With the floral parade of the 10th
annual Rose Festival scheduled to move
through the business section of Port
land 24 days from today, active prep
arations are being made by O. KL. Jef
fery, director of the pageant, to make
the spectacle one long to be remem
- bered in Portland.
While every effort is being made to
secure entries for the parade, the Fes
tival Association is desirous of getting
,in touch with all people who will enter
floats. This includes all divisions or
the procession such as pony carts,
horse riders, dog carts, bicycles, auto
mobiles, business houses, motorcycles,
fraternal organizations and civic bodies.
Tentative plans for the formation of
the parade are now being wo; -m! out.
S. Benson has accepted the i tution
of the floral parade commitu .o act
as grand marshal, and the magnificent
floral review will move promptly at 2
P. M. the afternoon of Junle 8.

This division will be-followed by the

Olub, the Bit and Bpur Club and pony

riding saddle horses, in horse-drawn
vehicles, then follow the fire bureau
entries, the parade closing with private
owned automobiles, floats from the
public schools, clubs, organizations,
husiness houses and public corpora
tions. More than a dozen bands will take
rart in the pageant. The grand prize
of $250 offered this year for the best
decorated automobile in any class is
creating great interest, and Indications
are that some of the "most gorgeous
floral entries ever seen will be on dis
play. "The success of-the floral parade de
pends on the interest of Portland peo
ple in the annual Rose Festival," said
Mr. Jeffery. "Portland people should
realize that we are committed to pro-
riuce each year the most beautiful
floral parade in the world," he contin
ued. "We have the flowers, and auto
mobiles are plentiful.
Delay May Interfere.
"People should not wait until the
laBt minute, but make their entries in
all classes at this time. The parade
should have not less thap. 600 florally
decorated cars, to make it the greatest
of the kind ever seen. '
The pride of Portland is at stake in
the floral parade. We have had much
publicity all over the United States this
vear regarding the beauties of Portland
as the "Rose City" and the wonderful
display of roses and other flowers in
the floral parade. Already several
c.iies are planning festivals where
flower-decorated automobiles will be
featured as a result of the photographs
