THE DAILY COOS BAY TIMES, MARSHFIELD, OREGON, TUESDAY. AUGUST 27, 1907.
BIG PUNS FOR
Keen Rivalry a Feature of In
ternational Efforts to
Astoria, Or., Aug. 23. Interna
tional contests will be seen at the
Astoria regatta and county fair, the
Norwegian saengerfest and the an
nual outing of the State Editorial
Association. Six nationalities are to
be represented by six tug-o-war
v teams, and the keenest rivalry Is be
ing aroused as to which nation sends
America her strongest and hardiest
It Is only the cosmopolitan popu
lation of Astoria that enables this
feature to be put on as a big draw
ing card for this celebratioit. The
teams are practicing three times a
week and at the tests the brawniest
men In Oregon may be seen strain
ing every nerve in order to be at
their best for the big events on Sep
Dozens of other races for outside
people have been arranged on the
water and on the land with big
money or trophy prizes, as desired.
Every city or town has its sprinters
and its jumpers, and the events will
be oppn to them in the amateur or
professional class, just as they may
wish, in order for them to remain
amateurs or professionals.
Three-legged, sack, potato and ev
ery style of lace which has ever been
held will be held at the regatta sports
In Astoria on Labor Day.
Similar to the manner in which an
Eastern nlan walked from Cincinnati
to New Orleans on the waters of the
Mississippi river last year, a man has
been secured who will walk around
on the water in the harbor In front
of the grandstand erected at the foot
of Eleventh street. This spectacular
feature of the regatta sports will
amaze nil beholders.
A youth of Astoria has volunteered
to be thrown to the bottom of the
river tied to an anchor, from which
he will cut himself loose and arise to
the top, barring accident. He has
begged the Chamber of Commerce to
allow him to accomplish this feat,
and this gives some idea of the en
thusiasm for the celebration in As
toria. The Norwegian saengerfest of the
Northwest, which is held in Astoria
from August 30 to September 2, in
conjunction with the regatta and
county fair and the annual outing of
the State Editorial Association, will
be the most important held by that
body in the history of the West.
Three hundred voices from over a
dozen of the leading cities In Ore
gon, Washington and California will
engage in competition.
All the voices are trained and have
been selected from a large number
by Professor Speratl, who is drilling
them every day and will do so from
the present time until the opening of
the big celebration. The competition
will take place in the Astoria theater,
and only a limited number will be
able to hear them.
At an onormous expense, Madame
Norelli, the famous singer; Dr. En
na, the pianist, and other noted ar
tists of world-wide reputation have
been secured for the program. Num
erous other intei estlng features have
been provided by the Saengerfest,
notably the Viking ship and king
