Leftover Bread U
The old saying about there be
Inr""plentv and to Bpare" was
literally true concerning the big
banquet given Monday , night by
the American Legion In honor of
its chief. In fact, so much was
there to spare that the local Sal
vation Army was called on the job
early Tuesday morning and asked
to distribute some 60 to 75 large
loaves of bread, besides a giant
cake, among its poor families. In
less than an hour the bread and
cake was in the homes of six large
families where a mere baker's loaf
is hardly able to make the rounds
at meal time. The cake was one
of the largest ever baked. Thus
did Mr. Spafford's visit to Salem
lause considerable bread to be
"cast upon the waters."
Skating Party Next
The secret which the senior
high school chamber of commerce
has been holding up Its sleeve for
a week or more came out at a stu
dent assembly yesterday morning.
It is no less than a skating party
which the commercial group is
sponsoring for the entire high
school Saturday evening. John
Verdleck,. president of the cham
ber, extended the invitation to the
atudent body yesterday. A clever
stunt, in which several girls did
some skate antics, "sold" the
idea to the students. The skating

EAST PORTLAND TOO
QUIET, MOVES HERE
AH This Happened In 1811,
However; Etienne Lucier
Kaat Tor-Hand" first settler
didn't like the solitude there, so
he moved to French Prairie,
near Cuatnpoeg, according to a re
cent account written by Fred
Lock ley of the Oregon Journal In
his column. "Impressions and Ob
servations of the Journal Mau."
Material used by Mr. Lockley in
this article was obtained while be
was a member of The Oregon
Statesman staff. It says In part:
The first settler on what Is now
East Portland was Etienne Lucier,
who came to Oregon to 1811 with
Captain Wilson P. Hunt. Lucier
was a free trapper for some years
He then went to work for Dr. Mc-
ILpughlin. Just 100 years ago this
ffear he decided to give up trap
ping and go to farming. He took
up a .place Just across the iivei
from what was then known a?
"The Clearing," but is now known
as Portland. "The Clearing." on
the river bank, was about midway
between Vancouver and Oregon
city. Mr. Lucier built a cabli
near what Is now the corner of
Union avenue and East Morrison
street. He cut a trail down to the
river bank, which later became the
landing for the first ferry betweer
Portland and East Portland, at the
foot of East Morrison street.
Mr. Lucier became lonesome for
neighbors, so in 1829 he moved to
French Prairie, taking up. a place
two miles above Champoeg. Don
ald Manson, a Hudson's Bay em
ploye, married his daughter, Fe
licite. in October 1828.
In 1889 and '90 I worked for
the Oregon Statesman and trav
eled on horseback pretty well al'
over the Willamette valley and the
Coast country. I stopped over
night at the farm homes of th
pioneer settlers and right there
and then I acquired my taste for
digging up the facts about Ore
gon's early days. On my firs trip
I stopped overnight at the home of
F. X. Matthieu. who told me of
his old neighbor and fellow-coun
tryman. Etienne Lucier. I visited
St. Paul, St. Louis, Champoeg
Gervaia, McKay settlement and
other old-time places on French
prairie and talked with the old
. After Lucier had abandoned M
claim to East Portland it was tak
en up by another French-Canadian,
named Porter. When Porter
died Dr. McLoughlin became his
administrator and in 1845 A. L.
Lovejoy sold the claim at admin
istrator's sale. Colonel J. N. Ne
smlth. who was Judge of probate,
attended the Bale with the inten
tion of buying the claim, but when
