"The entire city of Portland is
Intensely interested in the open

said Mr. Giese.. "It will be kept
open for three weeks or more, and
it is expected that fifty thousand
people will visit the home during
that time. If during that time
any Salem people are in Portland
it wil be decidedly worth their
while to visit this home which is
said to be the most electrically
complete in the world."

pressed with his spirit of tran
quility an atmosphere which so
violently contrasts with our Amer

found musicianship tinged with
the inevitable Hollins 'spirit
which seems to displace the quiet
ness of his nature when musical
subjects are the topic of conver
sation. His keen desire for a
deeper knowledge of our life, mu
sic and great modern organs gives
ns a clue to the factor which has
made for such a remarkable car
eer as his. It must nave been
that same intense desire for the
knowledge of music which led him
through the difficult early years
of a musical education. Although
born blind, Dr. Hollins began the
study of music at the age ot five
