Threescore years
of uninterrupted progress a progress
closely interwoven with that of the vast Pacific Northwest
Territory of sturdy pioneer times to the great commercial and
industrial Pacific Northwest of today; a progress marked
by continuous activity and resourcefulness, of faith in the
community which it has so long served.
In this interval of time many changes have taken
place changes far beyond the limitations of human
foresight, and The Ladd & Tilton Bank, like all
sound institutions and enterprises of long standing,
Jias changed also. Many things reflect its steady
and substantial growth, not the least of which are
its increasing deposits as shown in the figures
which appear here.
Reviewing with satisfaction its long stand
ing, its adherence to sound banking principles, and the enviable position which it
has always occupied, this pioneer institution, now passing its sixtieth milestone,
again desires to express its willingness
to serve and satisfy, and to extend
assistance and advice whenever and
wherever possible.

Trip Taken In. Territory Where
Are "So Allied Troops.
a few days which cleans the slate
so far as Oregon units are concerned,
although there are a thousand or two
casuals still here. They are moving
rapidly, however, and all will be home
before the summer is ended. I hope
that an appropriate reception is given
the 400 Oregon men of the 148th when
they arrive fairly early in June, for
they have been in all the actions over
here and have made a brilliant record.
Among the first here, they are among
the last to leave, and while the public
may have tired of receptions, at the
Fame time this outfit richly merits a
real one."
Beyond the army of occupation, in
the German interior, there is manifest
a very different outward attitude to
ward America and American soldiers
than that which greets them on the
Rhine, according to a letter recent
ly received from Lieutenant-Colonel
George A. "White, who left the post
of adjutant-general of Oregon when
he followed the flag across.
Colonel White, according to informa
tion of a later date than that contained
in his letter, is to arrive In New York
the latter part of this week and should
be home in Porland by June 20. His
letter, dated at Namur, Belgium, on
Alay 17, Is as follows:
. "If my schedule had worked out true
to form I should have been headed for
Brest and a boat by this time, but it
didn't, and so, while aelayed a few
days, expect to make it very soon. In
fact, when the boohe 'signs you will
know that I'm on my way. Not that
either event is greatly dependent on the
other. Mind you, the boche would sign
whether I were here or not, and fur
thermore, 1 think I would go eventual
ly whether the- boche signed or didn t

be simpler for the government than to

"Have been over some very interest
ing ground today. Also the past week.
Was over in the real Prussia where
there are no Americajj or allied troops,
and saw something of Prussia as it is
today without any camouflage on for
the benefit of enemy patrols. And
suspect that they love us not, despite
the pretended amicability in the occu
pied territory. Old Her Rat variety of
Germans turned their heads away as
the car with the red, white and blue
shield went by. Women covered their
faces with their hands or aprons. We
were encountered by a cold reserve
even at Konigswintern, where the
stony-faced chef held us up for 248
marks for luncheon. But the minute
we entered the occupied area on our
way back the Germans showed their
tine hypocritical adaptability. Through
out the British area every postman
policeman and soldier saluted and
every civilian lifted his hat. Not with
any great enthusiasm, mind you, bu
yet they did it.
"Today we came over the same coun
try where you and I used to follow the
German armies on their initial rush
from the German frontier down the
Belgium gateway into France. While
this is the country in which the Bel
gians put up their unexpected resist
anco and enabled France to mobilize,
the country was not very badly d:im
aged. Liege, with its network of for
tiiications, was not damaged much
Namur shows few of the earmarks o
assault and the country appears to b
fairly prosperous and well supplied
despite the fact that the Germans go
out of her only a few months ago afte
several years of forcible occupation.
"It is a very beautiful country, bu
I imagine that you've heard so muc
about it all that you are as sick of i
as I am. It will take a year before

place once I get out of here, and
think it will take longer than that be
fore anyone wants to hear about It,

Fonrtli of July Celebration This
Year to Be Biggest Kver.
BEND. Or.. June 7. (Special.) The
big:gest Fourth of July celebration ever
held in central Oregon will be staged
in Bend this year, was the unanimous
decision reached by the Bend Commer
cial club. As the result of suggestions
made by a number of speakers it is
probable the celebration will be con
fined to one day and that all the events
which would ordinarily be scattered
over two days will be packed into half
the time.
Two features which have already
been tentatively arranged are a smoker
and dance, to be civen on the Fourth.

The new dance floor installed by M.
M. Ringler contains 11,000 square feet
and will accommodate 2000 dancers at
one time. It is now being encased in
glass and at all times will be com

chestra, which is known to Portland
dancers through several seasons' pop
ularity, will be on the floor at all times.
The miniature railway will high ball
the first train out on time. Miniature
railway describes it exactly. It runs
by steam and its mile of track through
the groves and along the river's bank
is beset with all kinds of engineering
difficulties. Here the train takes
tunnel. At another point Jt goes
through a deep cut and finally comes
down the home stretch to the station
on the board walk over a trestle.
"Miniature" also applies to Binkley's
ponies from Goldendale, which are
herding at the beach. These little
horses, the size of a Shetland pony, are
marked and built like very small
horses, with the eye and characteristics
of an Arabian. They are a special breed
developed through 30 years by Binkley,

of the Orchestral Section of
THE orchestral section of the Cheney is one of the important
and exclusive features which have given this instrument
acknowledged supremacy in sweetness and purity of tone.
Note that it is made from seasoned wood, which adds a mellow
quality to the tones as they pass through.
Yet more important, note that the old megaphone principle has
been discarded for a more scientific method of tone amplification
through a series of chambers, graduated in size. These chambers
will preserve a perfect balance in reproducing band, orchestra or
other ensemble selections. Each voice or instrument is readily
recognized promptly identified.
This is only one of many improvements that have placed the Cheney
in a class apart. Call at our store and let us show you the tone -arm,
the acoustical throat, the reproducer, the resonator. Best or
all, let us show you the artistic Cheney cabinets in period design.
They fittingly enshrine the superior Cheney tonal system.
