REGON has announced to all the world
that it has set the stage for a World's Ex
position in 1925.
In order to bring into full! view the
magnitude of such an undertaking, it is
necessary for every resident of this fair
state to realize that such an event can only be as
great and brilliant as its men and women ordain.
Let it, then, be the mission, the inspiration, the thought
of the people of Oregon to point with enthusiastic
pride toward the development of the higfiest intel
lectual achievement that lies within their power. Let
the wealth, refinement and industrial; strength of the
state be poured forth in abundant anray for the world
to behold and enjoy as the spirit of the great West.
Let the people of this great state combine their ef
forts and march as one great army toward the goal the
Atlantic-Pacific Highways and Electrical Exposition
wishes to attain with the same spirit that prompted the
pioneers who blazed the trail of our first civilization.
Let us emulate as one mighty force what God has
wrought in the big, free and open-hearted West, and
where the hand of man has transplanted the new Gar
den of Eden. f
Let us from this hour on proclaim the hame and
fame of the new wonderland that lies west of the
Rockies, and let us consider ourselves, individually
and collectively, bound to the performance of our duty
as citizens to make the Exposition of 1925 one worthy
of the name, triumphant to the end.
To justify our position; to acquaint the world with
our intent; to understand the full meaning of our posi
tion as hosts, let us in unison display this message:
