ROSE QUEEN NAMED
r - v i f r-vwy ' a
Eight "ladies-in-waiting," who will
attend Queen Dorothy throughout the
1921 Rose Festival, June 8, 9 and 10,
were announced yesterday by Mrs.
Florence A. Runyan, a member of the
board of directors of the Rose Fes
tival association and chairman of the
committee in charge of the corona
tion and activities of the queen and
her party. The young women named
as the queen's attendants are as fol
lows: Miss Dorothy Carpenter, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. N. U. Carpenter; Miss
Margaret Foster, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. T. B. Foster; Miss Mary Gill,
daughter of Mrs. Mark Gill; Mrs. Erio
Hauser Jr.; Miss Dell Jones, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Jones;
Mrs. Clark Pilkington; Miss Marian
Shemanskt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Shemanski, and Miss Helen
West, daughter of ex-Governor and
Mrs. Oswald West.
With the return of Miss Dorothy
Metschan, queen of the festival, from
Mills college yesterday, and with-the
return of several of the "ladies-in-waiting,"
who are also attending Mills
college, during the coming week,
plans for the coronation and other
royal events of the festival will be
rapidly put into shape.
Decorator to Give Advice.
Plans whereby those desiring to en
ter floats in the floral parade, which
is scheduled for Thursday afternoon,
June 9, may obtain expert advioe and
aid, are being arranged by H. W.
Kent, chairman of the floral parade
committee, and by May 23 Mr. Kent
expects to have the services of an
expert decorator for the use of pa
. rade participants free of charge. The
plan which it has virtually been de
cided to carry out is to have a decora
tor in the employ of the Rose Fes
tival association maintain offices at
the festival headquarters, 705 Couch
building, from May 23 until the open
ing of the festival, a period of two
weeks .rid a half. All those desiring
aid in planning floats may then se
cure the same free of charge by call
ing at the festival headquarters.
A large number of photographs of
decorated cars, with diagrams and
sketches showing how the deooration
schemes may be carried out, will be
on hand, and those wishing to enter
decorated cars but having no particu
lar ideas which they wisa to carry
out, will find an abundance of help
in this way.
Aid Will Be GratnltouK.
Those who wish to carry out cer
tain ideas of plans in the decoration
of cars, but who do not quite under
stand how to go about it, also will
find aid at the festival headquarters,
under the plan that has been adopted,
as the decorator there will gladly
work out any plan presented, so that
the entrant will be able to go ahead
without delay or uncertainty with the
decoration of the car. In view of the
fact that a considerable number who
have never before entered decorated
cars are expected to do so this year,
this decoration service, rendered free
to all. Is expected to prove of un
usual value. i
As an auxiliary to the above plan
teachers and pupils.of the High School
of Commerce have promised to aid in
the designing and planning of floats,
according to the statement of James
Elton, principal of the school, to H. W.
Kent yesterday. Miss Phillis Muirden
of the art departmsnt of the school
and Miss Esther Wuest have already
begun designing floats and cars,
working the designs out with the
pupils of .the school's art classes.

STUDENT CRAFTSMEN BUILD
PHONOGRAPHS AT CORVALLIS
Nine Beautiful Models Turned Out in Woodworking Shops at Oregon
Agricultural College Would Retail For $500 Each.
REGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallis, May 14. (Spe
cial.) Nine beautiful phono
graphs soon will leave the wood
working shop at Oregon Agricultural
college to grace the homes of their
builders. Built by the students of
the mill-work class in woodworking,
they were exhibited at the recent en
gineering show and received much
fa vorable " comment from visitors.
They are constructed of black walnut
and patterned after the Sheraton
model of a standard maker, being
modified in design sufficiently to give
them individuality. This design or
dinarily retails for at least $500.
The object of this mill-work class
is to train students in the use of the
various machines, the adaptation of
the machines to special work and
Quantity production. At the beginning
such articles as could be used about
the campus were manufactured- Three
terms ago some of the students re
quested that they be allowed to make
phonographs for themselves, and as
the entire class was willing to make
them, the course was adapted to this
work. That term nine phonographs
this (last term nine more, so that to
date 24 have been manufactured.
The methods of manufacturing are
the same as those employed in a reg
ular factory. Each student has a cer
tain piece to make and makes this
piece for all of the machines. They
make the cutters necessary for the
various moldings, attach them to the
machines and work up the stock.
Every operation drawing the plans,
veneer work, machine work, sanding
and finishing was carried out on a
production basis. In this manner val
uable instruction and practice are ob
tained and the reward is their fin
The cost ef the material is borne
by the student. The lumber is pur
chased from the college, and the mo
tor, spring or electric, is purchased
from the manufacturer. Lumber costs
about $35, the motors average $60
and incidentals $5, which brought the
approximate -cost to each student ta
TIM product this term was excep
tionally good, according to H. C
Brandon, director of shops, who said
he was highly pleased with the work
and the praise which the many visit
were made, the next term six and ors to the recent exhibition had given.
Rev. Dr. Magee, pastor of the First
Methodist church, Seattle, Wash., has
accepted an invitation to deliver the
commencement address Wednesday
morning, June 15. At that time an
nouncement will be made of the new
members elected by the faculty to
Alpha Kappa Nu, senior scholarship
fraternity organized last yea:
Twenty per cent of each senior class
is the maximum number eligible for
election to the organization.
Reunions of the '72 class and "97
class, the 50-year and 25-year grad
uates, respectively, are being planned
for commencement week. The com
plete programme for the week will
be announced soon. According to a

Back to Pre-War Prices
Many and devious are the tactics
employed by the various western
states at Omaha and Kansas City to
lure home-eeekers to their undevel
oped lands so much so, in fact, that
a veritable "settlers' market" has de
veloped at these twin gateways to the
far west, according to a preliminary
report received by the Oregon Btate
chamber of commerce from represen
tatives who are now operating in the
middle west. .
The states of Idaho, Wyoming,
Minnesota, western Kansas and Ne
braska and California are sparing no
effort to attract the immigrants from
Hie east, according to the report. At
tractive literature depicting the oppor
tunities of the respective states, com
plete agricultural exhibits at all cen
tral points, and advertisements in
middle western papers of the greatest
circulation, point to the fact that no
expense is being spared in the cam
paign waged by other states for "till
ers of the soil."
Idaho Increase Cited.
The report points out that in this
intensive campaign eatrried out sys
tematically by competing states dur
the last few years, lies the answer to
the embarrassing facts brought to
light in regard to Oregon's rural pop
ulation as compared to other states
by the census reports of 1920. These
figures showed that the average
density of population throughout the
United States is so. 5 persons per
square mile; for the state of Cali
fornia, 22 per square mile; for Wash
ington, 20.3 per square mile, while
Oregon could only boast of 8.28 pel
The state of Idaho, according to the
census figures, increased its rural
population exactly twice as much as
Oregon during the last decade.
The exhibits of agricultural prod
ucts, particularly at Omaha, is one of
the first points of interest to the
prospective settler, and adequate
space is provided for such an exhibit
from each of the western states at
the Union Pacific headquarters, ac
cording to the report. While Oregon's
exhibit compared favorably with that
of other states. It was urged that sev
eral lines of agricultural products be
replenished immediately, as some of
them showed marked deterioration.
Literature Is Discussed.
The literature distributed by the
various states in the middle west, de
picting the advantages and opportuni
ties awaiting the settler, surpasses by
far the Oregon literature available,
both in attractiveness and quantity,
according to the report. In spite of
this handicap, however, there exists
a strong and insistent demand for in-,
formation relative to Oregon's agri
One of the most Important phases
of the situation taken up by the re
port is in regard to the opportunities
offered the settler on the irrigated
lands of Oregon. .It is pointed out
that a radical readjustment must bo
made in the system employed by the
Oregon Irrigation districts to -meet
the competition of ofher states. One
county in Colorado, for Instance, is at
present running an advertisiment in
many eastern vapers offering home
seekers irrigated farms for nothing
down and nothing but interest to
pay for five years, according to the
"You can see from the brief outline
that I have given you what Oregon
must do if she Is to take any active
part in obtaining homeseekers," Baid
J. R. Heurlng, the state chamber's
representative at Omaha. "The ir
rigation projectsthat have been com
pleted in Oregon recently, and those
that are about to be constructed, will
require many thousands of people to
develop therH, and to my personal
knowledge I know of no other plan
being inaugurated other than the one
the state chamber is now working on,
to put settlers on'these lands.
. Irrigation Declared Easy.
I doubt very much if the average
man in Oregon has given any thought
to the fact that it is the easiest thing
the world to build an irrigation
project, and it is the hardest thing
in the world to induce a man to move
his family into a district and make
himself and family a farm and home,
and unless Oregon realizes the seri
ousness of this phase of the lrriga-1

"I trust that from this brief outline
of the competitive conditions that
exist at this time, some action can
be taken by the state at large to
help along in this movement which
we are now getting under headway,
for more people mean less taxation;
more people mean more manufactur
