1939 Motor Cruise: To Yellowstone
On the Ked Lodge highway: "Up, up, up we climbed, stopping here and there for scenic views and

This newspaper is co-operating
with the Oregon State Motor as
sociation and The Oregonian to
sponsor a series of motor cruises
designed to stimulate travel
throughout the acific north
west. The following article is con
densed from a full-page article
appearing in The Sunday Orego
nian June 18.
One of the high points of the mo
torlog 3500-mile trip, sponsored by
The Oregonian and the Oregon
State Motor association and fath
ered by the Northwest Tourist asso
ciation, the Snokane Chamber of
Commerce and the Inland Empire
Automobile association, through the
wide expanses of the northwest was
the journey into Yellowstone park
over the Red Lodge highway. The
highway is the new northeast en
trance into the park.
Previously the motorlog party had
sped from Portland through Wash
ington to Spokane; into Idaho where
copper, lead and silver mining op
erations were examined and on into
The Red Lodge highway is hung
from precipitous mountain sides and
crosses directly over the crest of
the Beartooth mountain, 10,942 feet
high, or approximately the summit
of Mount Hood.
Red Lodge, Cooke City and Sil
ver Gate, grown travel conscious
because of the new road by their
doors, were eager to instruct the
travelers in the attractions of the
The highway, a magnificent piece
of engineering, was located by an
Oregon man, Harry Mitchell, asso
ciate highway engineer for district
1, bureau of public roads with head
quarters in Portland, and the na
tives of that region swear by his
genius. At no place does the grade
pxoppd S1 ripr cpnt and the average
car in good mechanical repair does
it nicely in high gear despite the
Rowena loops and the figure eight
on the Columbia River highway
would be dwarfed in comparison to
these switchbacks. Up, up, up we
climbed, stopping here and there
for scenic views and photographs
I Snow-capped peaks presented
chains of rjearlv and spectacular
grandeur as far as the eye could see.
Dropping down from these dizzy
heights, we observed a large log
lodge near the highway which, we
were told, is the seat of Princeton
university's summer course in ge
ology. Our scenic seminar had al
ready convinced us that they had
come to the right place.
Here prehistoric seas and lakes,
volcanic eruptions, lava flows, earth
quakes, gigantic upheavals and
creeping ice sheets have left a fas
cinating story 4 which the geologist
may enjoy to its fullest. Here also
may be observed in Yellowstone
vulcanism still alive and active.
Thus the scientist may bridge the
ages of the past.
The night was spent at West Yel
lowstone and the circuit of the park
made next day. The bizarre natural
phenomena of the park have been
so well exploited as to need little de- '
tailing here. The geyser basin, of
whioh Old Faithful eevser. the
Morning Glory pool, Crystal pool,
1 the paint pots and tne lute are cen
tral attractions, and the grand can
lyon of the Yellowstone remain the
j outstanding and never-tiring fea
tures of this astonishing area.
The highways have been widened
: from winding one-way dirt roads to
! two-wav modern surfaced roads.
Markings through the pai n are bet
ter and accommodations vo- tne
tourist at reasonable fipu"'' p.re
Our party will never toigc. its
visit to the canyon, where we stoou
in awe, first at Artists' point and
then at Inspiration point, and peered
down into the depths of the vari
colored chasm out by the Yellow
stone river and at the surging Yel
lowstone falls at the upper end. Yel
lows, reds, browns, greys ard greens
make up the fantastic landscape
and paint its myriad of minarets.

OSC Band Adds 4th
World Fair to Record
Oregon State College The Ore
gon State college band, which made
a trip to San Francisco the first
week in June to participate in OSC
day at the Treasure Island world
fair, has now appeared at four
world fairs, a record seldom equal
ed by any college musical organiza
tion, it is believed here.
The world fair visitations by the
OSC band began in 1905, when the
group played at the Lewis and
Clark exposition in Portland, under
the leadership of Frank Lucas. In
the fall of 1905 Harry L. Beard was
made leader of the band and four
years later took the organization to
Seattle where it played for a week
at the Alaska-Yukon exposition.
Still under the leadership of Cap
tain Beard, the band in 1915 went
to San Francisco for a two -week
stay in the Oregon building at the
The latest trip made by 60 men
was again under the leadership of
Captain Beard, who has just com
pleted his 34th year a3 conductor
of the band.
For the third consecutive year a
course in safe driving will be offer
ed members of the 4-H club sum
mer session at Oregon State college
this summer, starting June 6, it wa3
announced by Earl Snell, secretary
of state. The instruction is given as
a part of the state-wide traffic
safety campaign conducted by the
secretary of state's office.
