PALESTINE TO KEEP
Britain to Maintain Equal
Opportunity for All.
COMMONS VOTE CITED
FORD CARAVAN FEATURES WHICH PARTICIPATED IN NEWBERG BERRIAN FESTIVAL
Any Change In Policy Would Be
Crime Against 'Welfare of
World, Says Gardiner.
BY A. G. GARDINER,
Britain's Greatest Liberal Editor.
(Copyright, 1922, by The Oregonian.)
LONDON, July 8. (Special cable.)
Great Britain's polic of equal op
.jxrtunity for all creeds In Palestine
will prevail. The action - of the
ihouse of commons in crushing: the
opposition to the Rutenberg con
cessions dismisses the likelihood
that there will be any serious de
parture from the present plans. The
formidable attaCK in the lords and
the commons upon Zionism has end
led In a fiasco.
Durinj? the war Balfour com
mitted England to the undertaking
hat the Jewish return to Palestine
would be its po-licy when hostilities
-ended. In accordance with that
promise England, assuming the
Palestine mandate, adopted ascheme
to promote that end. The object
was not to establish a Jewish state.
That was impossible in view of the
predominance of the Arab popula
tion and also because of the fact
that Palestine contains the holy
place of three competing religions,
Christian, Jewish and Mohammedan.
In the circumstances, the manda
tory power was aimed, not at giv
ing Jews preference, but in estab
lishing a just impartial state where
Jews, equally with Arabs and
Christians, would find a secure
Jew First Governor,
The first governor was a dis
tinguished Jewish statesman, Her
bert Samuels, a man of the highest
character and ability, who filled the
office with conspicuous wisdom and
There has been a strong under
current of opposition in England, of
anti-Semetic feeling and of anti
British influence among certain
Catholic powers. It was alleged
that during the war the allies prom
ised the Arabs self-government.
This was only conditional on their
support of the allies and the Pales
tine Arabs did not support their
cause. On the other hand, the un
dertaking to the Jews wasv abso
lutely specific. The fulfillment has
not injured the Arabs. It has been
alleged, however, that the Samuels
administration favored the Jews in
regard to concessions and land pol
icies. There is no evidence that this
criticism is justified.
Furious attack Is Maae.
The assault centered on a con
cession to M. Rutenberg, a -Russian
Jew, to develop electric power
through the resources of Palestine.
The fact that he is a Jew was seized
upon with local indignation. The
fact that he was a Russian-Jew was
shocking. There came a furious at
tack in the house of lords. Efforts
were, made to overthrow the con
cession and every vulgar prejudice
was exploited. The fight was trans
ferred to the house of commons and
there the anti-Zionists mat their
Replying to the attack, Winston
Churchill showed that the Colon ia
office had closely scrutinized the
proposal. Under it the Palestine
government controlled prices and
limited profits. Rutenberg himself
is a man of genius and high charac
ter. iso one tmnks the Arabs are
capable of such development. They
. reap the advantage with the rest
from the enterprise. It was sug
gested that a Jew should not have
been favored with the concession
and that the business should belong
Parliament Shows Sympathy.
Such a selfish suggestion de
stroyed the bona fides of the case
and the temper , of parliament
showed little sympathy with the
anti-Semitic spirit This is remark
able in a house so reactionary as the
present. The division was almost
sensational In its emphasis, only 35
supporting the attack with 292 fa
voring the government. The result
was the most crushing of defeats
for the anti-Zionist movement.
There is no doubt mistakes have
been made under the mandate, but
it is clear that the Arabs have no
real grievances unless equality of
treatment be a grievance. On the
contrary, they stand to benefit from
the development of the country and
social order introduced.
Bo far. as the Jews are concerned
their claims to national rights in
Palestine are Indisputable. The ex
perience of the new regime on the
whole has been entirely gratifying
and the view strongly held in Eng
land that a national home for the
Jews will tend ultimately to lessen
the grounds for hostility now wide
spread. Any attempt to upset the
present system would be a crime not
only against the Jews but against
Palestine and the best interests of
the whole world.

rade in Portland, and was pro
nounced much prettier than the
float that won so much admiration
at me rose xeie. .
In line, too, were 60 Royal Rosari
ans of Portland, who arrived In i
fleet of automobiles and whose ap
.pearance "was natty and reminiscent
of Rose Festival days. The Port
landers brought a note of co-operation
from the metropolis to the
Other Cities Represented.
Other features of the parade were
the goddess of liberty float and
commercial club automobiles from
Hlllsboro, the Elks band , and 20
cars, beaYIng the slogan "Your Sis-
B? ADDISON BENNETT.
THE people' of Newberg are of a
modest disposition. In a mod
est way, claiming no credit,' offer
ing no apologies or excuses, with
out the sign or thought of a boast,
they pull stunts that would appear
wonderful in any other town of
threepr four timeB the size of New
berg, which the census bureau de
clares is a couple of hundred short
In speaking thus of Newberg the
praise should go to their bunch of
admirable boosters the Berrians.
Most of the people in this part of
Oregon know about the Berrians,
and many saw them this year as
well as last year walk with a $100
prize in the Portland rose parade
for having the best decorated float
in the parade.
These Berrians are twins, or trip
lets, or in some way related to the
Rosarians of Portland, the Cher
rians of Salem, the Prunarians of
Vancouver, Wash., and other simi-.
lar societies. But all of these or
ganizations are for the good of
their home town and none of them
let an opportunity pass for boosting
Thej Berrians are only a little
more than a year old, and there
are 200 in the 'gang." They or
ganized . last, year to . descend .upon
Portland at the rose festival and
capture the J100 prize, and -they got
it, as they did again this year.
Probably they will get it every year.
Nobody knows,, but all . wish .them
well. The Berrian bunch numbers
200. If the Portland Resarians had
the same proportion Of the popula
tion as the' BerTians have of the
Newberg population they would
number close to 40,000". ' So you can
see the spirit, of .the iown .behind
the Berrians. Only one or two other
towns in Oregon can show a record
anything like that !'.;'
Everybody loves a winner, every
body sympathizes with and assists
a booster that is. everybody worth
shucks and that is why the Mc
Minnvilllans came down 25 automo
bile loads of people, headed by their
band, got down, early, with their
mayor, and from every machine was
hung a banner. "Our Sister City,"
And then from Hlllsboro came a big
delegation, with the real Goddess of
Liberty, and from Vancouver, Wash.,
came a couple of dozen Prunarians,
all dressed up in their uniforms,
same as the Cherrians, Rosarians.
Berrians and well, the Whitney
Newberg Junior band, with black
knickers, white shirts and scarlet
And just while it is hot in my
mind I must tell you about those lit
tle chaps 75 of them. I can tell the
reader that no town with little spec
imens of men like those chaps need
worry about the future, for there is
the material not only to keep the
home fires burning, but to fill any
place of honor or trust. And such
singers! They gave three selec
tions "Beautiful Oregon Rose,"
"Old McDonald Had a Farm' and
"Soup." I never heard music that
seemed to stir the audience like
those songs did especially "Soup."
That selection wag really made by
the audience, for they were sup
posed to sing only two, selections.
but the wise audience" knew their
best number and the grove wag
filled with yells of "Soup."
But the diminutive leader of those
boys! I never saw a better, and I
have seen them from Patsy Gilmore
to Muratore. If ever there was
born band leader in existence it is
that little Berrian from Newberg.
His name is C. A. Morris.
Well, let's get the parade started.
And before I forget it, let me say
the managers did one of the finest
bits of neighborly courtesy ever
witnessed. E. R. Woodward, who
for many, many, years was editor
and publisher of the Newberg
Graphic, is quite ill and could not
get down town to see the parade.
So the parade was sent to him! Yes,
past his beautiful home it moved,
and he was sitting on the lawn and
seemed very, very happy; and
they passed the hats were lifted and
he smiled a return. Never will he
forget what his fellow. Berrians did
The parade was headed by the
firing squad of the. Lester C. Reese
post of the American Legion, that
is wher the marshal of the day or
one of his assistants was not in the
lead. The marshal was Henry C.
Morris; his first assistant, Chandos
Chase; second assistant, R. L.
Parker. Following the squad on
foot came the five cars of the offi
cials, and then oh, well, I cannot
string out the entire marching order
as it was; but somewhere was the
old float of the Rose Festival, but
so differently decorated that but
few knew it;ythen somewhere was
the queen, and the Hlllsboro God
dess of Liberty, and a few scores of
automobiles all .filled to the guards,
and the entire family of Fords and
Fordsons tractors and, and well,
let it go at that.
In the very first car were King
Black Cap, of the Berrians. and King
Bing of the Cherrians, and The Ore
gonian scribe. Yes, they treated me
fine; even had the queen Evah I
turn the key to the city over to me.
I have it yet. It is heavily jeweled
and I may hock it. I will see Uncle
Simon about it tomorrow.
And then somewhere in the line of
march was the viisting McMinnville
band and the Berrian band, the lat
ter having SO pieces count 'em, SO!
And all in their spick and span
loganberry-colored uniforms. Some
spielers are they; but just wait until
Leader Lorrls graduates from the
juniors into full-'membership! But
anyhow, the Berrian band, when at
the Rose Festival, unfolded some
fine music for the radio in The Ore
gonian tower. So I ought to be
awfully nice to them.
I was all this time sitting between
a pair of kings. King Bing of Salem
and King "Black Cap of Newberg.
But they treated me very fine; were
not stuck up a bit; smoked stogies
like a recruit. There is really noth
ing to this king business. - -
But the queen! That is different.
for she is a lovely queen, lust a
lovely woman, and very beautifully
appareled. But I thought King Bing
treated her shabbily. He did not ride
out in the chariot with her; he did
not meet her until she came up to
the stage at the park and about
2000 people looking on! Then she
spoke her piece. She was crowned
wttb, a coronet of near-diamonds.
Then she received the key to the
city, looked around for a good-looking
stranger and, seeing none, hand
ed It to me with never a murmur
from Black Cap.
Another number on the stage at
the grounds was a very pretty dance
by a diminutive young lady whose
name I did not get. The space is
blank on my Botes, but she is a
very graceful dancer and poser. And
the ladies-in-waiting to the queen
and of the goddess of liberty. I
did not attempt to, for there were
about 20 in all, 10 little misses, each
with a basket of rose leaves, scat-1
tering them in -the pathway of the I
queen. Then there were four ladies-in-waiting
for each royal lady. j
And there was some speaking, too.
not mentioning the casual flow of
remarks from the -presiding officer,
Black Cap Butt. First waj H. W.
Kent, executive . secretary of the
Portland Rose Festival association.
He also presented a silver cup from
the Portland Rose Festival. He was
followed by William P. Merry, ohair-
man of outside participants of Port
land Rose Festival board of gov
ernors. That sounds like some title,
but he handed King Black Cap a
crisp check for $100, won by them
at the recent Portland affair. The
king very handsomely and gentle
manly handed It over to the queen
and she pocketed it! It may be a
long time before she gives it up.
Judge Morrow of Portland was
loudly called for and finally came
forward and said a few congratu
latory words. He was received with
with much applause. He is a fine
speaker and the audience wanted
more, but the judge Is an, old bird
and knows when to quit when the
quitting is good.
