the dances in accordance with the
action of the story and the music;
and history. This has required
months of the hardest sort of
work. r I
Then came the task, not so dif
ficult, of selecting the singers.
Portland is noted for good voices
and the getting together of a chor
us of 1000 was hot so difficult as
the training of these voices for the
long musical score of the pageant.
While this work was under way
the still more mechanical features
had to be started from the bottom
and worked up to a conclusion. To
present such a production requir
ed an immense stage. This must
be built to "suit the action, the
characters and must also be work
able so that it could be lighted
and so that the scenery could be
changed as the story changes and
so that the thousands of persons
and the herds of animals could be
brought on and taken off without
difficulty. And the stage mUst be
biult for the benefit of the eyes
and ears of the audf ence. There
must be seating capacity sufficient
to bring in the amount of money
required t6 build the show and
the. seats must be near enough to
enable the audience to see and
To accomplish this required the
bringing into play of every known
trictc ot stage construction and
stage craft plus a lot of new ideas.
The vast scenes must be changed
quickly and effectively and the
lighting system must be adequate
and effective. Propertles" such
as large vases, trees, rocks, build
ings, temples, and thrones must
be bunt to appear and disappear
as needed, without confusion or
the appearance on the stage of
stage hands. It must be remem
bered that this year all these
changes are made automatically
as tbe& will ' be no ; curtains to
hide stagehands while changes
are being made.
After devising a stage to meet
the requirements came the task of
constructing it. It involved a lot
of 'new inventions which as 'they
1 1 ' J?,
J i. ,i p
have been worked out will revo
lutionize pageantry in the whole
country according to experts who
have seen the stage as completed.
With the stage completed came
the task ot painting the scenery,
the "drops" which are 112. feet
long end the wings, and side tabs
and the profiles. And then came
the lighting of the stage. There
was not sufficient stage lighting
equipment, in this part of the
country. Three hundred great
flood lights had to be built to aug
ment all ot - the stage lighting
equipment that could be borrowed
and rented from the theaters of
Portland. Two thousand frames
to change color effects on the
stage had to be built.
While this work was under way
it was necessary to arrange the
costumes. Twenty-five hundred
of these were all that could be
found among the studios at Hol
lywood. The rest had to be made.
A large workroom was established
at the Public Auditorium and doz
ens of civic spirited women of
Portland donated their services in
this work. Costumes of every
sort had to be colored. More wo
men gave their services to this.
The Costumes had to be histor
ically correct and had to be made
to fit the persons wearing them.
And when they are all assembled
they have to be so handled that
each night they can be given to
the performers and checked back
in.' Dressing rooms had to be pro
vided for the 3000 performers.
A tent city has been built back of
the stage to care for this feature.
Great herds of horses, oxen,
sheep and other animals together
with chariots, ox wagons, pioneer
wagons, guns, spears, swords,
headgear, shoes, helmets, wigs,
beards and hundreds of other
kinds of equipment had to be as
sembled and built. And all must
be historically and , allegorlcally
correct. . Horses and other ani
mals not used to the stage and
bright lights and crowds and ex
citement had to be stage broken.
The steam curtain had to be
specfariy bailt. Pipes had to be
extended from Multnomah club to
the stage. Mechanics had to bore
hundreds of very small holes in
large galvanized pipes to permit
the steam to escape.
And with all of these things
built and organized comes one of
the blggests tasks of all -the or
ganizing of all this into a show

$9.45 - $12.50 u $18.75

under one leader so ' that every
movement of the conductor's, ba
ton means something and so that
the story will unfold without a
hitch. The huge ballets of danc
ers "must more at the proper in
stant. The curtain and the me
chanical equipment must move at
just the right time. ' The music
must yncronize with the action.
This id itself is a tremendous
task. All of the groups had to be
trained separately and ' then
brought together into one pi ass.
All must' know their entrances and
exits as well as their parts and
their movement on the stage. Ev
ery movement of the entire pro
duction has been timed to the
fractional part of a second.
Whtlfe the 'mammoth production
has been fn course of organization
there' has been the great task of
advertising It 'to the wbrtd, sup
plying the newspapers with infor
mation and publicity and taking
care, of the bin board work, or
ganizing the great ticket sale' and
arranging for the Ushering of the
crowds when they come and the
thousand and one other things
that- hare required thought and
And behind all of these things
has been . the business organiza
tion that has kept the whole un
dertaking moving, the buy Is g of
the supplies, the paying of bills,
the keeping of books and the
countless other things that form
a part of this undertaking which
