Everett Gardner
Writes of Life at
Cape Cod Home
KEIZER, June 6 One of
Keizer's foremost young men is
Everett Gardner, who is attend
ing Boston Theological university.
During his summer vacation he
is domiliced with a family out
near the shore of Cape Cod Bay.
In a letter written to his fam
ily In Keizer he says in part:
V Everything Is so beautiful here.
We are away back in the woods
although Tight along the water.
The lady slippers are as large as
l dollar, buttercups are thick
You can look across the bay and
see summer homes ' dotted all
around the edge. We are just a
little way from the end of the
Cape Cod canal and the New
York-Boston boats go within a
quarter of a mile of the bouse.
About 9 p. m. a big passenger
boat goes down. You can hear
the people talk, see them dancing.
etc. It is a beautiful sight to see
that big boat with powerful
seTrfchlights go past.
Yesterday morning when
went out to empty the ashes, the
tide was nearly in. The wind was
just lightly rousing the surface
and the sun was banked by some
clouds. Everything around me
was very fresh and beautiful."
But with all the beauties there
Everett is homesick for Oregon
and he would be perfectly satis
tied to hear the whistle of the
boat that plies the Willamette
near his Keizer home.
