' ainnation to foresee a mammoth wave of auto travel into the
" jiorthwest that year. The people of the middle west and the
Jpast want to see the northwest This is new country, to., them
and the are interested in it for many reasons. For one thing
athey are hearing of a wonderful road program in Oregon and
i Washington. ' They know thAe is beatftiful scenery here. They
.know that the climate of the jporthwest is delightful as com
.pared to many other sections. There will be countless thousands
t?ho will say, "I have been wanting to see that country and this
'looks like a good time." The exposition will focus attention on
Oregon, providing" an objective for an immediate trip., Every
party that comes will bring others in its wake because the en
thused visitor will teirhis frienas and neighb'ors all about it. On
, this assumption and the further assumption the trip and the ex

tiounced business depression can stop it and by. 1925 the country
? -should be clear of all depression. ' v
- Pendleton's part in that year of activity is not going to be
j small. The Round-Up of that year will actually rival the expo
i eitiori as a crowd producer. The exposition authorities will use
;the Round-Up to help lure people to the northwest and they will
be wise in doing bo. But we will have our hands full through
out the whole season and not just during Round-Up time. We
are on a main transcontinental highway which will be improved
to the Idaho line by 1925. We are on the route people tfill us
who wish to reach the exposition city via the famed Columbia
drive. It is going to be necessary to prepare extensively for the
accommodation of this travel. The advantages we derive from
the exposition business will be largely contingent on the extent
of the arrangements we make. - v"

" . WHEN THE SCREEN STARS ARE UNSCREENED ( ,V
THE mess in which Fatty Arbuckle finds himself as a result
of a wild night of immorality focuses attention.again upon
the private life of a star of the screen. .. ' J""
4 ' Scandal seems to have claimed the mdvie folk as its own
articular company It has tiot been so long ago that Olive
Thomas, actress-wife of Jack Pickford.'died after a riotous
orgy in Paris, and it is an open secret that many of the idols of
the silver sheet not only have feet of clay but souls corrupted Dy
moral decay.,. ,
Partial responsibility for this deplorable condition must be
' Elated uDon the hih salaries paid these play" people." Many
of them are rewarded with a lavishness that is staggering. They
,'cet what they do not earn and easy and excessive income is
nearly always a breeder of soiled lives.
r. The injury they do in their disregard for the standards of
, common decency is not confined to themselves.. Through their
"pictured acting they win thousandsof admirers the world over
j i , , t i i . u i
, nu oecome ine neroes ana Heroines vi many a maiu auu a iuau.
The lifting of the curtain which shuts out the view of their pri
' vate lives is attended by a shock and a sickening reaction upon
those who have worshipped at the shrine of their art. Recovery
from shattered ideals or misplaced homage is always a slow
matter and never entirely accomplished." Scandal which is oft
en only a temporary inconvenience and embarrassment to peo
pie in public popularity may easily be a tragedy in the lives of
' some of their adolescent admirers. . .-. . , . .;
. -There has been much said and written lately about the ele
vation. of the standards of the motion picture and the Fatty Ar
buckle episode suggests again that the elevation of the picture
j4ayvs should be predicated upon an elevation of the morals of
I tfcose who make them. - . . .
; 'Many motion picture playhouses have pointed the way, to a
form. of penalty which would dobtless prove salutary. They
nave canceled their contracts for Arbuckle releases and will not
feature that star. If the play-loving public would follow this
lead by withdrawing their patronage from those pictures star-
ring an actor or actress who besmirch themselves with licentious
, 'living, then, w think, would these people regulate themselves a
little tnore by the laws of respectable society. At least they
,wouJd be a little more discreet when they stray fronj the paths
of rectitude, for decreased earning power is often an argument
for clean living where moral preachments and statutory laws
tail.- -.... .
The Round-Up ts a clean and wholesome show and Happy
Canyon likewise. The officials are right in standing firm for a
high standard and for removing objectionable features when
they appear. The people who come to the Round-Up from far
nnd near, are not looking for license and they want no hoodlnm
Ism. It would not take much in the way of debauchery to hurt
the show tremendously. It would be a blunder to catertto an
element seeking lawlessness and by so doing offend our best
customtrs, the farmers and farmers wjveg of Eastern Oregon

FROM THE PEOPLE
THE PEXPI.ETOX ROrM-0
(Colorado Springs Gazette) :' '
With a population of 7,000, Pendle
ton, Ore,, for a few days' every year
plays hostess to 70,000 -people . wj)o
come to see its Round-Up. Since 1910
when as a city of !00 it started its
frontier exhibition, it has collected $1,
500,000 in gate receipta; of whtch
J3a.0i0 has been clear profit, used to
finance succeeding performances and
to build up Round-tp Park.
"One may Well ask," says Charles
Wellington Furlong in his recent book,
"Let 'Er Buck," "why this little thru
track town draws such a stream of hu
manity on such a pilgrimage and holds
them in a tense grip for three days and
then sends them away, satisfied ana
enthusiastic. First and foremost,' the
Round-L'p Is clean, pure sport, and
makes its appeal to the thousands who
Journey to Pendleton every year to see
(hose three primary attractions of, a,
frontier exhibition the 'riding of a
bucking horse, the roping of wild
steer, and the bulldoglng5 of a Texas
l.OAghorn." Second, because It Is "not
a. money-making "schheme." . but is
tag"d - by" a Volunteer' organization
paying neither salaries nor dividends
and supported-by an. enviable public
spirit' ' - .
. Conceiving the idea of the Round-
Up, a, handful of Pendleton business
men formed the Northwestern Front
ier Exhibition Association to take
charge of the Show. ' This was com
posed of tome 250 men who elected
six officers, these, with nine directors,
comprising the executive board. Shares
of $10 each weie sold and but one
share to a man. The most careful at
tention was- given the first exhibition,
the extent to whch details were work,
ed out being shown by the fact that
the original program is used now with
slight change. ' The crowd at this
initial performance was almost double
what the most enthusiastic had ex
pected. Profits of $3,000 on an In
rastment of not much ' more sent
shares from $10 to $50 ,nd brought
an offer from New York theatrical
syndicate to buy controlling Interest
at that price. Right there, says Mr.
rFurlong In his- book, "Pendleton sat
. up, "and took notice, and right here
the Pendleton spirit manifested Itself."
Thf stockholder were asked to give
up their stock, give their show to the
city and to dig down In their pockets'
for an additional $10,000 to buy and
build permanent- Round-lTp ground.
Any they replied, "Let 'er Duck!"
The association continues a corpora
tion in name only. Directors, devoting
as much time and labor to the Round
Up as they do to their own tmslness,
serve' without compensation and with
out hope of profit. It is an honor in
Pendleton, eagerly sought, to be vn the
Round-Up board, which, with only a
few changes from year to year, con
tinues its work of staging the biggest
frontier exhibition in the country,
backed by every citizen In the com
Colorado Springs can well take a
lea,f from-the book, of Pendleton.
What that city of 7,00 can do the
Pikes Peak region can do on a larger
scale. Its advantages are many; its
opportunity great. It remains only to
go at the problem in a business-like
manner. The effort will bring an extra
100,000 visitors every year. .Every
citizen knows what that means,.
