extend the glad-hand of welcome when
they come. They'll be as glad to see
you as you will be to see them if you
treat them nicely, and I'd be humiliated
if anything should happen to mar the
pleasure of their stay."
So saying. Mother Portland stooped
and straightened a wrinkle in the par
lor rug, then hurried upstairs, donned
her high-heeled slippers, her new hob
ble skirt, powdered her nose and pres
ently appeared on the front porch, ready
for eventualities.
Record Crowd Expected.
Unless all signs fail, the present
week is to be the most animated in
Portland's history. With the Victory
Rose Festival, the annual convention
of Pacific Coast Advertising Men's
association and a number of smaller
conventions on the calendar, the Rose
City is called upon to act as hostess
to what, it is estimated, will be the
record number of strangers within her
gates. For nearly a week past visitors
from various parts of the northwest
have been arriving.
Telephone and telegraph wires have
been humming the song of hotel reser
vations. Letters and postcards have
brought mesage upon message fore
casting the influx that now is under
way, while from other, sources the
committees in charge have learned that
the hospitality of the city will be taxed
to properly care for those coming for
the Victory celebration.
Ad Men Come In Droves.
Fully 500 delegates to the Ad Men's
convention are expected here by to
night. Members of the Portland club
have made necessary reservations,
through committees, for the accommo
dation of these guests, but there are
several thousand people due here in the
coming 24 hours for whom reserva
tions have not been made, according to
the housing committee at Liberty
temple, and an appeal is made to the
people of Portland to throw open their
homes, list available rooms and help
maintain the city's reputation for hos
pitality. The housing committee will
be at Liberty temple all day today for
the purpose of listing rooms and last
night expressed confidence that the
necessary 3000 rooms would be volun
teered by residents of the city.
Accommodations were available at
the temple headquarters yesterday for
1346 persons, and by Wednesday, at the
latest. 3000 additional rooms will be
required. Hotel men of Portland are
co-operating in every way with the
Festival housing committee, and, as
', their rooms are practically all taken,
" are referring guests to the committee.
Mhole Week la Killed.
The present week will be one con
tinuous reel of big events. Beginning
with the song reveille this morning,
and continuing until the close of the
annual ball of the Royal Rosarians in
Cotillion hall Friday evening, there are
to be no dull moments. Committees in
charge of the various activities have
details worked out to such a nicety
that a chronicle of all numbers on the
big programme of Victory Festival and
ad men's convention must be left to
another column. It is enough to say
here that roses will be the predominat
ing thought throughout the week, and
roses will figure prominently in the
color scheme.
Which brings us to the point of deco
rations. The Lane o' Laughter in the
South Park blocks, and the oriental
gardens in the North Park blocks will
be ablaze with myriads or cotorea
candescents arranged as a canopy over
the pleasure grounds of the festival
, . and interwoven in the foliage of those
: - localities.
Along the downtown streets have
appeared endless streamers of fern and
evergreen, with here and there a giant
rose-light, a 1000-watt lamp the center
of the blossom. There are eight, of
these to each block, and when the
switch is thrown, illuminating the city
as never before, the mellow glow from
the great metal flowers is expected to
be something quite novel and beautltul.
Decorations Ready Everywhere.
The illumination of the streets has
? been fixed as one of the set events of
the festival programme, somewhat
the nature of a formal opening. Busi
ness houses have vied one with another
in arrangement of window and exterior
decorations. Flags and bunting give
the streets the appearance of one great
American flag, while cut flowers, ferns
and potted plants have been used with
telling effect to give Portland the ap
pearance of a monster garden.
Running through the scheme of deco
rations is the military note produced
by the elaborate display of the national
colors, reminding those attending the
festival that this year's event is in
honor of the boys who whipped the
Hun. The military parade on Thurs
day promises to be an event such as
never before has been witnessed in the
west, and the presentation of medals
by the city of Portland to her heroes
will be among the more impressive
events of the week.
The aeroplanes, which will fly in
squadron formation from Bakersfield,
Cal.. to the landing place at East More
land municipal golf course, and the
'.' cruiser Minneapolis, which will be in
the harbor, will serve to add to the
military and naval aspect of the Fes
tival. First Meeting Today.
Today's meeting of the Ad Men will
be held in the auditorium, beginning at
3 o'clock, and will be presided over by
President Charles K. Berg, with the fol
lowing programme to be given:

Lieutenant Everett-S. Wisdom.
Lieutenant Everett S. Wisdom,
an army aviator of ' Rockwell
field, who was killed FTiday,
May 30, while flying from Rock
well field to Warner, where he was
to become a unit in the air patrol
of the Cleveland national forest,
was a well-known Portland, boy,
and regarded as one of the-best
aviators at the field. He was 24
years of age, and received his
commission as second lieutenant
in September, 1918. On account
of his smile under all circum
stances, he was familiarly known
to his companions as "Smiley," .
and his death caused deep regret
among army officers and enlisted
men alike. .
During the funeral, aeroplanes
flew in formation overhead, and
the entire personnel of commis
sioned officers of Rockwell field,
except those on duty, participated
in the services. The band from
the cruiser Minneapolis preceded
the truck bearing the casket and
the escort of officers followed.
The casket was draped with
flags and covered with flowers,
and the air insignia, worked out
In red. white and blue flowers,
occupied a place of prominence.
The body was taken to Ban
Francisco for cremation, and the
ashes will be sent to Portland to
be placed with that of Lieutenant
Wisdom's father and mother.
The young man met his death
while flying in a heavy fog, the
machine crashing into the side of
a mountain. The wreckage caught
fire when the gasoline tank
bursted. and Lieutenant Wisdom's
companion, who was badly in
jured and burned, was unable
to aid him.

o'clock this evening. This display

Members of the festival finance com
mittee announced yesterday that large
bottles had been placed in the down
town section for use In receiving con
tributions to the festival fund. In view
of the. fact that a small town in the
valley gave S30.000 to have the aviators
stop at tiat place, and In view of the
fact that Tacoma will expend some
$90,000 for its celebration, the commit
tee feels that Portland people should
not hesitate to make up the deficit now
confronting those in charsre.

Western Clubs Object to Affiliation
With General Order, Fearing
Loss of Freedom.
While delegates to the 16th annual
onvention of the Pacific Coast Adver
tising Men s association are coming to
Portland this week, ostensibly for a
good time and to enjoy the hospitality
of the Rose City, there is an undercur
rent of serious business which threat
ens to break on the convention floor in
one of the most bitter contests in the
history of the organization on the coast.
The issue is that of affiliation with the
national organization, which has been
under consideration for some time, and
definite action will be , taken at the
Portland meeting.
Speakers from eastern cities, includ
ing William D'Arcy, of St. Louis, presi
dent of the Associated Advertising
Clubs of the World, are to be present
at the convention, and, it is understood,
some of them, as advocates of the af
filiation. F. W. Kellogg, of California,
vice-president for the Pacific coast,
also will be present.
There is considerable opposition . In
the Pacific states, it is said, to the
proposal to affiliate with the larger or
ganization: the contention being that
such affiliation will mean the surrender !
of the independence now enjoyed. A
movement to formally recognize the in
dependence of Ad clubs west of the
Rocky mountains is looked for during
the convention. .
Opponents of the independence idea
argue that the question to be decided
is whether the independent organiza
tions are capable of exploiting the great
resources of the western country, the
manufacturing, timber, crops of various
kinds, fishing and mining. In any event,
it is predicted the Ad Men will not
find the Portland visit without some
unpleasantness, for the issue has grown
to proportions that make immediate
settlement imperative.
Chief among the entertainment fea
tures provided by the Portland club will
be the trout breakfast to be served on
Eagle creek, 45 miles east of the city.
Thursday morning, as a closing event
of the gathering. Four hundred dele
gates and members of the Portland
club will be taken to that point in
autos and a big out-door banquet
Opposition of First Congregational
Church on Architectural
Grounds Void.
No damage will result to the founda
tion of the First Congregational church
as a result of the costruction of a nata
torium on property directly in the rear
of the church, providing-ordinary care
is used by the contractors in construct
ing the building.
This is the judgment of a special
committee, composed of City Kngineer
Laurgaard. Water Kngineer Randlett
and Chief Building Inspector Plummer.
appointed by Actig Mayor Bigelyow for
the Durpose of making an investigation.
The committee suggest tht sub-drains
constructed of tile, laid in a trench
filled with gravel, be installed under
the bottom of the tank for the pur
pose of carrying any possibl leakage
or ground water to the sewer. The
committee report that other than this
suggestion, nothing further is needed to
make the situation absolutely sate.
Officials and members of the church
protested to the city council agtinst
the proposed atatorium on the ground
that possible seepage from the ewlm
minpf tank might undermine the church
foundation. The committee reports that
the fill referred to by the church of
ficials was made more than 50 years
ago and has settled thoroughly, and
that there is no danger from the pro
posed natatorium on this score.
Architect W. W. Lucius, in charge of
construction of the natatorium building.
has anounced that the swimming tank
will be moved three feet further awaly
from the church building than had first
been planned, and the committee re
ports this move will substantially im
prove conditions.
The report will be submitted to the
city council Wednesday for approval
The council has no legal way in which
to stop the construction 'of the build
ing. having already issued a permit for
it. The protest was ot made until after
the permit was granted. It Is probable
that no attempt will be made by the
council - to delay the construction, fol
lowing the assurance from the special
committee that the church, will not be
damaged through the erection of the
N'icolal Estate Near $50,000.
According to the appraisal filed in
the circuit court yesterday an estate
valued at 48,281. 66 was left by the late
Roy E. Isicolai of the Nicolai Doo
Manufacturing company. Personal prop
erty, chiefly stocks and bonds, tota
$4031.66. Appraisors were J. S. O'Gor
