Bicycle Swans Trained.
Feathered pets have never re
ceived credit for any large amount
of brains; in fact, many satirical ep
ithets originate in the poultry yard
to the disparagement of fowls. Take
for instance the "silly little goose"
phrase, or "O Robert, you great big
goose." Then again "some chicken,"
a comparison that is not always
flattering to the hens in the barn
yard, and son-in-law's pet phrase,
"the old hen," out of keeping with
the honest bird that clucks and
cackles and lays eggs for son-in-law's
breakfast. The only part of
our story that is in keeping with
common impression - regards - the
proud and haughty swan.
To contradict the illusion that

soning brains, step forward and be
Introduced to Bob, the speed fiend
goose. Napoleon and Crooky, educat

wife and family, particular swans of
particular tastes. All of them, ladies
and gentlemen, are home grown,
hatched, raised and educated in Ore

heat of a circus tent and unsullied
by the stare of curious crowds.
Rooster Is Made Pet.
While Keith DeLong, 660 Nehalem
street, lay in bed, an invalid for
months, he drove away dull care by
' making a pet of Napoleon, a rooster.
Napoleon grew fond of the boy as
time went on and when- Keith was
able to leave his bed Napoleon be
gan following him around. Later
when Keith was able to ride a bi
cycle he placed Napoleon on the
handle bars and taught him to ride.
.Napoleon, by the way, was young
'in those days, and it was not until
.he had mastered the art of handle
bar riding that he began to take
notice of the ladies. For beauty he
had no taste whatever, and he chose
for his mate and companion a cer
tain hen with a crooked bill, called
Crooky for short. Crooky also took
to joy-riding and the pair and the
boy are now .seen on Portland
streets, gadding around with splen
did interest in their pastime, but no
concern for the attention they re-
Tie a string around a chicken's
neck and It will invariably hang it
self. Not - so with Napoleon. He
took to harness with the same fine
reason that he ook to joy riding,
realizing, as it were, that he must
give rides if he receives them.
Young Mr. DeLong manufactured a
email cart and a set of rooster har
ness and taught Napoleon not only
to drive and haul a load, but to
stand without hitching and to an
swer to both "Giddap" and "Whoa."
And to make matters better,
Crooky climbs on the cart and Na
poleon hauls her around like a duti
ful husband. Later on perhaps they
.will have a chick carriage for Na
poleon to push while Crooky does
Goose Rides Automobile. '
But the doughty rooster on the
handle bars of a bicycle fades from
the limelight in point of daring
when Bob, the speed fiend goose,
owned by Mrs. Eunice M. Bothwell,
928 Everett street, goes by perched
on the radiator of his mistress' au
tomobile, balancing himself nicely
to the motion of the car, leaning
for"ward with joy when the car
speeds and walking back and forth
on the hood promenade deck ac
cording to his inclinations.
Becently he made a trip t Seattle
on the radiator of the car. While
there he was stolen and rescued
again by his owner. He rides the
radiator in all kinds of- weather,
over all kinds of roads, cutting ma
neuvers to negotiate rough roads
end, backing to the rear of the hood
when he sights trouble ahead.
Driven with ribbons, Bob has
strutted around the arena of the
state fair, the International live
stock exposition, in parades, and
this week he will cut capers in the
Rose Festival. Also he is an actor,
having recently starred in a "Mother
Goose" play given by the children of
the Hawthorne-Buckman school.
As to General Pershing and fam
ily, they live in Laurelhurst park,
the guests and wards of the city.
Most of the family, the three baby,

dignified, haughty and reserved,
papa and mamma float the ripples
of the lake and guard the precious
cygnets, which means gosling in
swan language. '
General Pershing Gives Chase.
The story of the swans can best
be told by relating the experience
of "Mac," the photographer. Ar
riving at the lake where the gen
eral, wife and three children were
swimming around, he set his cam
era to catch them as they were.
Angered at the intrusion of the fam
ily's privacy, and fearing for the
safety of the children. General Per
shing lived up to the reputation of
his namesake by leaving the 'water
and chasing "Mac" around the lake.
This cunning caper was repeated
several times. Unfortunately, "Mac"
couldn't take a picture of himself
being chased, but he finally succeed
ed in sneaking up while General .
Pershing wasn't looking, snapping
the picture and getting on his way
as quickly as possible.
Custodians of the nark say that
General Pershing treats all visitors
In the same manner. As long as they
keep moving he Ignores them ana
concentrates his attention on his
family, but as soon as they stop on
the bank of Uie lake the general be
comes indignant at their stares and
chases them away. The three swan
lets are now about two weeks old
and spend most of their time on the
lake. ' They have been swimming
most of their lives.

"Take your vacation with the

tion extended y the federal govern?
ment to the young men of the north
west through the annual citizens'
military training camp, which will
open at Camp Lewis July 27 and
close August 25. Colonel P. Whit-
worth, chief of staff of the 96th dl
vision, who will command the train

STEAM AND AIR VALVE
SAID TO ELIMINATE
Apparatus invented by Gust
Grafflnberger, Portland me
chanic. A new steam and air valve
which Is declared . to elimin
ate leakage is the invention
of Gust Graffinberger, Port
land sawmill mechanic, and a
company known as the Graf
finberger Air Valve company.
Incorporated, has been organ
ized for the manufacture of
thesC valves. The valve has
been tried out in actual, work
at the Peninsula Lumber com
pany's mill and Is declared to
have proved successful.,
Th valve is automatically ,
closed and the greater the'
pressure of steam or air the
more firmly it closes. This is
brought about through the
special construction of the
gate to the valve opening. The
gate is placed on the inside
of the steam chamber and is
pressed against the opening
or exit by a spring. In open
ing the gate for the release of
the steam a plunger operated
by a lever presses it inward
away from the opening. -
some extent last summer, the train
ing camp activities embodied the
idea of making troops of recruits or
students In as short a time as pos
sible. Colonel Whitworth, however,
is authority for the statement that
there will be nothing Intensive
about the training at this summer's
camp, but that rather the young
man attending the camp will be
made to enjoy the experience so
.thoroughly that he will wish to re
turn to the camp next summer for
the more advanced course in mili
tary science and tactics.
Dances attended by the girls liv
ing in neighboring cities and their
mothers will play an important part
in the social life of the camp, and
such affairs are to be staged every
Wednesday and ' Saturday. Picnics
and boating and swimming parties
will also be included In the recrea
tion of the students and Saturday
noon to Monday morning outing
trips will he a regular weekly event.
Baseball games, track ' and field
meets and other forms of athletics
will form a part of each day's rou
tine, along with the drill, cales
thenics and instruction in the use
Colonel Whitworth is explicit in
the statement that attendance at
the summer training camp entails
no additional obligation for further
military service on the part of the
student, though every one who com
pletes the three prescribed courses
of Instruction will be qualified to
become a commissioned officer in
the organized reserves of the nation.

STUDY OF CITY PLANNED
CLUB "STARTS COMPREHEN
SIVE DATA GATHERING.
Survey Intended to Give Most
Complete Library of Informa
tion Yet Assembled Here.
A study of Portland as a city, in
cluding an analysis of its physical
machinery, amounting to an inven
tory of its equipment, and a study
of the organization of its operative
features, such as laws and personnel
of administration, is a unique plan
of civic work being evolved by the
oity club of Portland through its
puouc affairs committee. The con
summation of the survey is intended
to give the city club the most com
plete library of Information on local
municipal affairs that has been as
sembled. Dr. Otis B. Wright
chairman of the committee, of which,
Norman F. Coleman, J. A Cranston,
C. C. Ludwig. W. H. Marsh and Sin
clair A. Wilson are members. The
scheme of the study is being planned
by Mr. Marsh and will be submitted
to the club this week in chart form.
The plan divides the city into two
divisions, the physical and the oper
ative. Under the first division are
listed the industrial, educational, rec
reational and correctional subdi
visions which compass the "physical
plant" of the city, both under public
and private ownership. The admin
istrative organiztaion and the laws
and statutes affecting city manage
ment will be studied as operative
features. . Especially commending
the plan to the city club is the fact
that it will include work now under
way, that already accomplished, as
well as outlining the -entire civic
field in a graphic manner.
Early last week the "cabinet" of
the club, including officers and all
committees, held a dinner meeting
to consider the year's programme of
work, reported on by chairmen of
