THURSDAY, JAN U ARY 28, 1926 OREGON WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL REVIEW served a sumptuous turkey dinner. Pennsylvania, speaking loudly for the Liberty Bell; Iowa and Kansas with corn; the South for cotton and piccaninnies; and Canada, our neigh bor, with the maple leaf were con spicuous among the tables; but the best o f all were the beautiful decor ations o f the Oregon* table with a miniature Crater Lake set in a back ground of living moss and Oregon grai>e leaves. Mrs. A. Schopen o f the Rogue Valley Floral Co., haining from Ohio, donated a beautiful bouquet o f red carnation in honor o f her state which is the state flower of Ohio. C. E Gates presided as toastmas ter and all present enjoyed a well- planned program. A three-piece or chestra, consisting o f Bliss Heine, violinist; Sidney Hoffman, saxaphone and Miss Eunice Parrett, pianist, rendered splendid music. Dr. T. H. Temple invoked the divine blessing which was followed by toasts, read- nigs, and musical numbers. “ Lib erty Bell” was read by Eleanor Pal mer. Clarence Meeker sang for Ill inois and Mrs. L. C. Collins sang a group of songs for the Southern States and led in “ Dixie” with all singing. The foreigners, with Mrs. Dr. Heine as hostess, were toasted in an able manner, in the absence o f Dr. Clancy, by Rev. Temple who hails from England. The following fo r eign born were introduced: Mr. Hu ber, Bohemia; Mrs. Samuel Bate man, Denmark; Frank Van Dyke, Penanz Malaysia; J. J. Buchter, Switzerland; Alice Roberts, Panama; and Dr. Holt, China. Other toasts were given by E. C. Koppen, Mrs. H. E. Robbins, Dr. Sleeter, Mrs. Ar thur Short and Mrs. S. A. Cornwell. The Canadian born stood up wjiile Mesdames A. E. Leyman, W. M. Van Scoyoc, Donald Robinson, and the Misses Gladys Bridges, Eunice Par rett, Ellen Williams, and Viola Diet- rick sang “ The Maple Leaf For ever” . Mrs. C. M. Sims gave a read ing “ Out Where the West Begins” , which was a fitting tribute to the Western states. A number of speak ers emphasized the fact that their native state or country was a good place to come from. No one tbasted California, so the toastmaster entertained the guests by “ roasting” her with an appropiate poem. Following this the banquet ers joined in singing “ Oregon Suita Me” followed by a splendid piano duet by Mrs. W. M. Van Scoyoc and Mrs. Clarence Meeker and the pro gram was concluded by all singing “ America” . THE CENTRAL POINT AMERICAN M A K I N G E L E C T R I C C A R S MO RE P O P U L AR PAGE THREE made. Addressing the Insurance Federation o f America at its annual get-together dinner, James B. Emery of the National Association of Manu facturers, said: “ Whatever could be said o f the en trance qf government into the field of manufacture on a commercial ba sis, there is far less that could be ad vanced in support o f any proposal to make any unit, state, or national, of the federal government an insurer, and if one turns back to the argu ment, it seems to me that he must go beyond the mere suggestion that the government ought not to compe'e with its citizens. The issue is far more fundamental. It is an issue that goes to the very roots o f the purpose for which this government exists, because the purpose of the American government is political and not economic. “ Government competition is poli tical suicide. It means that the gov ernment is engaged in undermining and destroying that which gives it its own life and existence. , “ Every time you attack the struc ture upon which the investments of insurance are predicted, you are threatening not merely the security o f each individual, you are threaten ing the security of every single busi ness.” the woes o f mob rule or the dictator, the people must select executives strong enough to curb the appetite for political spoils.
