the following to George L. Hotchlnr

at last night's meeting of the Com

full power to act. to arrange if pos-.
slble js large excursion of automobiles
to the Portland Rose Festival. The
proposition Is to arrive In Portland on
Tuesday morning, stopping over night
at McMinnvllle or at Salem, depending
upon which route Is taken. A more de
termined effort is to be made to have
Eugene well repreaenled In ,th Rose
City on that occasion, and, If we can
get 40 or more machines, as now seems
probabale, -we will come In style, boost
ing hard - for the Rose Festival. The
only thing that may discourage the
participate la the unfavorable weather.
'There are many new ownera of ma
chines who do not feel like undertaking
the drive through in on day. and . we
hope to be able to -arrange" agreeable '
entertainment at the stopover .point, so
as to induce 40 or SO machines, or more,
from this locality io Join and ..come
loaded to capacity."
Thousands of roses are blooming, at
Eugene. Corvallls and Albany and the
autolsts do not expect to lack material
for decoration. J
