The pageant of Willamette university ! as produced at . Salem,
under the direction of. Delia Crowder Miller, is in the main the his
tory of the earliest missionaries to the Pacific Northwest. Staged
in connection ."with the last commencement exercises of the third
quarter, century in the history of that university, it is remarkable
"that many of the descendants of the first colonists, missionaries and
Indian converts of Oregon could participate as performers. Alan
son Beers, member of the first gubernatorial committee of the pro
visional government, was represented . by his granddaughter, Miss
Lois Evans. Josephine Ilolman Albert ot Salem is granddaughter
of Almira Phelps, a missionary teacher whtf came on the ship Lau
sanne in 1840, and Joseph Ilolman, who arrived the same year over
land from Illinois. .
Rev. J.'L. Parrish, another well known missionary of the Lau
, sanne, was represented by his daughter, Mrs. Frederick Stewart.
Some of the Indian performers trace their lineage to the red men
and women who received from the lips of Rev. Jason Lee their
first intimation of the white man s Book of Heaven. j
.Also several pieces of furniture used in the pageant are more than
a century old; and the roses that brighten one of the principal
scenes in the pageant were the perpetuated growth of roses brought
to Uregon by Mrs. AJanson Beers m 1837.? I
v Many of the leading citizens of Salem,; the entire student body
' of the university, and 50 Chemawa Indian school students assisted
'in the cast, and the patronage was such that the alumni associa
tion later requested the trustees of the university to repeat the
pageant at regular intervals in order that the dramatic events that
: brought Christianity to Oregon, ' that established Willamette uni-
versity, the first institution of hieher learminer on the Pacific coast.

jA wheat, binder bought foar years
ago for SlaO and used to harvest
four successive wheat crops, was
sold last .week at a public sale in
Kansas for f 190.. Som? one asks In
this connection: "How would it do
to close out a few old political ma
chines?" ! ;
I i ' .
Some years ago American news-
selves and the. public. So called safe
ty meetings art being held, largs
numbers of circulars and posters are
being distributed and talks on safe
ty are being given to the employes
in groups on the entire properties.
The employes are urged to use cau
tion and avoid Incautious or careless
acts, as 'statistics prove that 95 per
cent 9f deaths -and injuries are the
result of' carelessness or kindred
"While tbe employes are doln all
possible to keep from injuring the
automobilist or any vehicle driver
at the railroad crossing, as well as
the person who walks along the
track or tries to steal a ride, they
are nearly helpless in doing s5 unles3
the public likewise is cognizaat of
the danger lurking at the crossing
oit the train and on the trac. The
entire 100 per cent of deaths and
injuries to non-employes on railroads
wxmld be avoided if the public would
heed tbe various warning signs at
crossings and stations and use rea
ronable care while on trains.
The railroad employes therefore
appeal to the public to h?lp mako.1
"No Accident Week" a success and j
show the entire United States that
here out West we can run railroads
the size of ours for one week at
least without an accident of any
kind. . - -
The employes will cooperate and
do ' all . they can to avoid injuring
anyone, but in turn they ask for the
cooperation of the public.
Don't try to steal a ride on a
train, you may fall under or between
cars and be ground to death.
If you are a passenger in a train
don't put heavy articles in the over
head racks above you. or above oth
r passengers, as vibration of the
car, may cause them to fall and in
jure parties underneath. Avoid put
ting them, in the aisles. When you
walk through the 'aisle don't stum

may be In the aisle.
Be car;ful in closing doors so they
won't mash your hand or finger.
J3o not try to raise or lower a win

Ask the trainmen to do this for you.4

Do not at any time stand on or
