"I am utterly opposed to any admis
sion charge to the fair grounds for the
all-Oregon Fourth of July celebration"
said Mrs. Edyth Tozier Wethered this
morning in discussing the action tak
en last evening by tho committee in
arranging for the second day of the
Cherry Fair, which provided for a 25c
admission charge. " What we want is
to have a big state fair every year on
the Fourth at the fair grounds and we
can only do this by giving the people
good entertainment and certainly not
by charging them admission into the
"I hnd hopes that some arrangement
could be made between the Cherrinns
and the race track men by which, the
horse men would bo given the privilego
of charging a 25 cent admission to tiie
grand stand, and that the Cherrians be
given all other concessions. By this ar
rangement we could ndvertise a grand
free Fourth of July celebration and
bring people here from till parts of the
valley, and especialy from Portland."
Mrs. Wetherrcd, who is a member of
the state fair board, expressed the hope
that the horsemen and Cherrinns might
be able to make satisfactorily arrange
ments for the Fourth. The chances are
that if these organizations do not work
together, the day will be divided with
tho Cherrinns putting on their second
Cherringo down town and the horsemen
have their own affair at the fair
The general expression of opinion
among the business men, is that an ad
mission chnrge at the fnir grounds will
practically kill that part of the cele
bration, as the averago Americnn will
not pay 25 cents or auvthing in fact,
for the privilege of celebrating. .
It is possible that arrangements may
yet be made by which the horsemen
will give their races and the Cherrians
put on a big show at the grounds and
that the custom will be established of
holding an all-Oregon Fourth of July
celebration every year at the state fair
grounds. This is the plan of Mrs.
