Social Activities
and Other Things
Big Personalities
Several yery interesting and capable
personalities have recently come to
'live in our clfy. They are wide awake,
vigorous and progressive, and will
doubtless affect our social life to a
great extent. If you have not yet be
come acquainted with them, get a
mutual friend to Introduce you, for
they are not ill tho least snobbish or
clannish. Their names are 'Master Boy
licout, Miss Y. W. Christian Associa
tion, Mr. Chamber of Commerce and
Mr. Community Service.
Master Boy Scout is a fine looking
lad and a pleasant person to meet.
He has already won for himself the
recognition of our citizens. Ho is of
a family that has established itself
on a substantial foundation in nearly
every civilized country and the gov
ernments are recognizing in him one
of tho strongest and sanest mould
era of masculine life during the for
mative period. His activities deal with
the boys from lfc to 18 years of age
and his purpose concerning them may
he summed up in the 12 points of
pcout law, which require boys to be
"trustworthy, loyal, helpful, obedient,
friendly, courteous, kind, cheerful,
thrifty, brave, clean, reverent toward
lod and to respect the convictions of
others in matters of custom and .be
lief." Manter Boy Scout organizes his
followers into troops being made up
of from two to four patrols. In our
city he has developed three troops.
He shows a very Intimate knowledge
of boy nature and works on tho prin
cible of "keep them interested.'' To
this end he puts on hikes, summer
camps, stunts and offers merit badges
for achievement in more than 60 dif
ferent lines of study and practice. To
qualify for the different degrees Mas
ter Boy Scout insists that his follow
ers shall posccss workable knowledge
of first aid, of bandaging, of how to
cook foods, that he have an active
savings account, that he shall have
jiractical camp knowledge and that he
have a knowledge of birds, of path
finding and of civics.
MIbo Y. VV. Christian Association ar
rived in the city less than a year ago.
bhe is sweet and winsome, also prac
tical and reliable. Since she observes
the laws of health, she possesses
a strong body as well as a clear men
tality. Sue 1b a great 'social worker.
Bho organizes and perfects clubs
tnat can include every girl and womnn
of the city if they feel so Inclined,
which offer Jolly good times, inter
spersed with inspirational sugges
tions. Sho is absolutely democratic,
making no discriminations among the
-girls. She Is a friond to the girl of
woalth and also to the girl who works
for a meager living. She has opened
plensnnt rooms to tho girls for par
ties and to dilforont organizations
for their meotlngn. She has also open

coat, In a pleasant environment. Sho
has found work for women who need
it. Just now she Is enthusiastically
planning a summur camp for girls and
young womon, where thoy can have
a few days recreation undor holpful
It is a lamentable fact, but true,
nevertheless, that there Is always
death In tho midst of life. A few
woeks ago a good reliable personality
in tho form of the elder Chamber of
Commerce passod away, was duly in
lerred In bin final resting place and
was mourned by a few. All of his
business affiliations and' legal docu
ments wore duly passed on to his
Huceessor ami heir, who arrived In our
city on February 23. He Is a strapping
big fellow, with much broader Ideas
than the former Chamber of Com
merce, lie Immediately announced
himself as tho friend of the whole
county. In the brief time that ho has
been hero he has listed 450 people and
firms as his active supporters. Ho
has Increased his annual Income from
a possible V-'OOO to a definite JS000;
he has 21 advisors whereas his fath
er had 7; ho has organized plana for
a modern tourist campground; ho Is
managing a bond campaign to ralo
1100,000 for tho Dalles-California high
way through Wasco county, which will
bo of unlimited benefit to tho people
of tho county. A special election to
vote upon these bonds will he hold
on Juno 7, He is going to soon issue
a booklet telling of the resources of
the county; he has mailed 30,000 pieces
of niattor In tho Interest of the county
and Is planulng an elaborate cele
bration on tho completion of the lust
pur of the Columbia highway from
Portland to The Dulles, lie is aUo
uletly planning a scientific survey of
the county which will show Its agri
cultural, mineral, manufacturing and
timber resources.
Community service is young but of
mature Judgment; he offers relaxing
play to tired indoor workers, and at
tractive pastimes to the muscular
workers. He brings people together
In social gatherings where they par
ticipate in something in common; per
haps it is only to sing a few songs
together but they feel better acquaint
ed thereby. Swimming facilities, base
ball and volley bull sports are provid
ed for all who desire them. Commun
ity Service is also a very artistic fel-
I low. He haB taken the various talents
' of the numerous Individuals in the
city and organized them into a pag
eant, thrilling In its action and beau
tiful in its wonderful arrangement and
perspective, accompanied by expres
sive music to Interpret It. He is also
very shrewd; he sees the value of the
dramatic training the pageant will af
ford his people, he also' realizes its
commercial and historical value to
the city and county. He feels that The
I Dalles Is the only logical place for an
historical pageant in Oregon. Last
year Seaside planned to initiate it
and claim the distinction of Its pos
session. When certain plans miscar
ried and the pageant was postponed,
certain of their people objected on
the grounds that The Dalles had a bot.
tor right to It and If they waited too
long she would get it. The Dalles is
getting It, through the efforts of Mr.
Community Service. He Is very zeal
ous in the care of the children of the
city. He belleveB that their energy
should be directed In constructive
channels. He therefore provides play
grounds and play equipment with re
liable suporvlsorB. Cooperative play
is made a great, factor for future gooa
