Here is a chnncc for bright students
in the public schools of the state and
the universities, too, to make Dome
The Portland Ad Club has decided
to start a big campaign to advertise
the loganberry and create new mar
kets for this important Oregon in
dustry. As the first step in the cam
paign it has put up $250 in prizes for
the students who submit the best
songs on the subject of loganberry
The contest starts right awny, mid
will continue until the night of October
HI. That gives contestants n full
month in which to whet their wits,
search the rhyming dictionaries, and
send in their songs.
The best song sent to the Portland
Ad Club, Multnomah Hotel Portland,
Ore., care of the song committee, by
the night of October 31, will win the
first prize of $125. The next best
song will take a prize of $75. Anil
the third bust will win $50. That
should be wortli the time of any boy
or girl, or young man or woman, to
Tho Ad Club intends to have the"
best song adopted as an official song
for the public schools of the state. The
prize-winning composition will be
published and distributed in schnolr
with the pictures of tho song authors
printed on them.
Of course it won't bo necessary for
contestants to compose tho music for
their songs. Tho words and verses
and swinging chorus aro what the Ad
Clul) wants. Tho young authors may
desigiinto tho tune, to which their
songs are adopted.
A committee of five of tho leading
educators of the stnto will pass on the
merits of tho songs. This committee
will meet, in the club rooms, of tho
Chamber of Commerce shortly after
tile close of the contest, on n dato that
will be announced in tho papers later.
The committee will listen to tho songs
which will he sung by singers select
ed by tho contestants, or by singers
engaged for tho evening.
One of the big objects of this con
test is to awaken genernl interest in
a campaign to get commercial organ
izntious of tho slate to pay more at
tention to tho development of Orcgons
agricultural and horticultural pro
ducts. At Its regular luncheon last Wed
nesday members of tho Ad Clul) enter
tained berry growers, fruit oniicry
inen and loganberry juice manufactur
ers of tho Willametto Valley, and
learned something about the great
possibilities of the industry as a busi
ness asset for tho state.
To map out a state-wide advertis
ing campaign with a view to advanc
ing this industry and creating extens
ive markets for fresh, dried and cann
ed berries, and for loganberry juice, a
special committee was appointed, con
sisting of George IS. Wnggoner, real
ty dealer, chairman; David N. Moses-

and W. H. P. Hill, sales manager of
the Northwestern Electric Company.
They decided that the song contest
among students of the public school
and universities for the cash prizes
named would be a 'good way to start
things off. They also have other dis
tinctive plans for advertising in view,
which they believe will attract atten
tion to Oregon -berries and logan-bcr-ry
juice through the whole United
"The Willametto Valley has as fine
agricultural soil as there is in the
world," said Mr. Waggoner last night.
"The trouble at present is that too
much of the farming is conducted in
a desultory way. The only general
market is for dairy products.
"Now there ought to bejust as good
a market and just ns big a market for
the state's agricultural and horticul
tural products. '
THIS COMMANDING OFFICER,"
A STRONG GRIPPING PHOTO
T' o.lore Hurt Sayie'? stirring
military romance. "Tho Commanding
Officer," lias at last found iU way to
the screen, in the manner that so
many other celebrated drammie suc
cesses have, through tho four- art
adaptation of this powerful drama is
the latest release on the Paramount
Program. So well known is this play
as not to require a detailed descrip
tion hut it must bo stated that in the
film version tho novel and striking
Mtuations of the original play have
been amplified and multiplied.
Seldom do screen dramas possess
such an appealing plot, such uniformly
good acting, ouch capablo direction,
appropriate settings and variety of
.ippenl. The tenseness of the f.tory
Joes not subside until the very imal
flash, and the various liaratteriza
lions are so well blended into n unit
of action that never is ihe spectator
'onfuscd or distracted from the main
clement of tho plot even momentarily,
Alice Dovey, one of the most popu
lar of the younger actresses A the day
portrays tho role of the commanding
officer's wife, about whom the action
ontrcs and through whoso innocent
.icapade the commanding officer is
inspected of murder, with infinite
i.iiarm and grace. Marshall Neilan
portrays the character of the villain
Lieut. Waring, and while he natural
ly does not succeed in gaining any
sympathy for the man he makes htm
ns forcible ns such an individual could
bo dra .711. Donald Crisp plays with
dignity the part of Col. Archer. He
is strong and convincing. He plays
with evident sinccry and at all times
holds the sympathies of (ho audience
The rest of the cast, including Olive
.Johnson, ISthel Philips, Russell Las
sett and Jack Pickford, ;;ive n.ert,
ilian adequate representations of the
character they portray. Miss Dovey
throughout is. charmingly effective,
md plays up to tho climax with the
dramatic skill of a finished artist.
The action lias the rapidity, rhythm

this typo of photoplay.

Why make a fuss over a ie'dge of
rock at the entrance to the river when
it is not there. Wm. Mast says he has
gone all over the bottom of the river
between tho jetties and there is no
ledge there. In his capacity as a div
er ho spent one summer working for
the government and has examined
tho bar and mouth of the, river from
the bottom and says there is no ledge
in it. There arc pinaclo rocks scat
tered along its course from Hreuer's
dock to the ocean. These hnve been
blasted off to a considerable degree
and Diver Mast says they are aot
such as to seriously interfere with
commerce. He thinks if the gaps in
tho jetty were closed up and the jetty
extended there would be no trouble
about a proper channel.
