Grand Marshal Hank Aaron
A Champion For the Ages
The Portland Rose Festival Association is honored to welcome as Grand Marshal of the 1979 Grand Floral Parade Mr. Henry Louis Aaron, the legendary baseball star who broke Babe Ruth's all-time home run record and set 18 major league records in all.
It was on April 8,1974, that Hank Aaron hit the historic 715th home run to break the Babe's record, at Atlanta, Georgia, Fulton County Stadium. Aaron has been in baseball since his junior year in high school and entered the professional ranks at the age of 17. He joined the Atlanta Braves in 1954, played with them 20 years as an outfielder, and then two years for the Milwaukee Brewers before retiring in 1976.
He was the National League's Most Valuable Player in 1957 and Sporting News Player of the Year in 1956 and 1963. He is now a vice president with the Atlanta Braves in charge of player development. He has numerous other business interests and devotes considerable time to a number of charitable and humanitarian causes.
Hank Aaron is truly a "Champion for the Ages," both on the playing field and in private life. His selection as Grand Marshal harmonizes perfectly with the 1979 Grand Floral Parade theme, "World Records on Parade."
Welcome to Portland and Oregon, Hank Aaron.
The Champion’s Medallion
In particular observance and commemoration of the 1979 Rose Festival and its theme, "World Records on Parade," a champion's gold medallion has been struck in limited edition.
The medallion will be awarded only by special declaration. It will go to those selected out for

The Queen of Rosaria
Selection and coronation of the queen each year marks the real beginning of the ten days of Rose Festival. Each of thirteen high school graduating seniors, chosen by vote of her classmates, greets the assembled throng in formal gown, performs a curtsy and delivers an impromptu speech based on a topic drawn onstage from a basket of roses. Giant screens show photos of each princess in varying moods.
The princesses are interviewed by a panel of judges prior to selection night in a private interview session. Judges score each girl up to 35 points for appearance, 35 points for poise and 30 for speaking ability, with 1OO being "perfect."
The judges' decision is not known until the Court returns onstage and the retiring queen, Tina Klassy. reveals the name of the new monarch.
Between presentations, selected talent from the community's high schools performs. Acts were chosen from open auditions.
The Queen’s Crown
The crown was designed by Charles Pennell, Portland jewelry craftsman, as a volunteer, after the Business and Professional Women's Club of Portland undertook the raising of funds for the diadem, through the sale of miniature paper rosebuds.
The piece was finished in 1922 and has been worn by every queen since. The frame is made of 14-carat gold. A large blue zircon graces its tip and 650 white sapphires, accented by eight rare pigeon-blood rubies, blend into the colors of red and white, most popular rose colors of the '2Os. Like all royal crowns, its actual value is virtually impossible to ascertain. Its value in precious metals and stones is in excess of $5,000.
The Queen’s Scepter
Each queen receives her own scepter, to keep. It is made of gold-plated spun copper and brass, entirely hand crafted. Upon the sphere or crown rest two golden rosebuds with stems twining around a long, polished rosewood handle. The queen's name is inscribed on the sphere, Roy & Molin Jewelers have the assignment of coordinating scepter production and also cleaning and repairing the queen's crown. The scepter is the work of 74-year-old Victor P. Kayser of Portland. Close examination will reveal one or more tiny metal bees on the scepter.
The Queen’s Bench
Sometimes called the throne, the queen's bench is used only once a year, at the Coronation. It was presented to the Rose Festival Association in 1970 by the Mystic Order of the Rose, a Portland women's organization. The upholstery is white velvet and the back and legs are of wood. The back is ornately carved with golden swirls around a central rose. Starl Warrington, owner of a Portland furniture company, designed the patterns and one of his craftsmen, Leez Cegus, executed the carving.
The Royal Court
The Royal Court is made up of the queen and the princesses.
They travel and appear as a court before and throughout the festival. Each receives her extensive court wardrobe and an $800 scholarship to the Oregon college of her choice. Many court members return year after year to the coronation and many queens continue to ride floats in succeeding Grand Floral Parades.

Starlight Parade, Saturday, June 2, Downtown, 8 p.m. Starlight Run, Saturday, June 2, Downtown, 7:30 p.m.
Brightest new star in the Rose Festival spectrum is the Starlight Parade, a twinkling procession ot illuminated floats, bands and assorted merriment. Begun in 1976, the parade instantly proved itself a leading attraction and has taken its place as one of the Festival's three major parades. It forms in the park blocks north of West Burnside and revels its way through downtown.
A new adjunct this year is the Starlight Run, a fun run
with limited entry which starts at Memorial Coliseum at 7:30 p.m., crosses the Broadway Bridge, then joins the Starlight Parade route at N.W. Broadway and Flanders, to follow the route to disband. Special guest runner is Arnold Schwarzenegger, listed in the Guinness Book as history's most perfectly developed male body, an appearance in harmony with the 1979 Rose Festival theme, "World Records on Parade."
The spirit of Oregon is in the spirit of the Rose Festival.
Few other spots in the world compare with Oregon for diversity and beauty. Oregon lies by one of the world’s mightiest rivers, the Columbia. It’s covered by one of the world’s most bountiful expanses of great evergreens and snow-capped mountains. It’s edged on the east by vast rolling range and grassland, and on the west by the greatest of all the oceans, the blue Pacific.
It’s where enormous fir trees twenty stories high shade fern fronds measuring five feet in length. It’s an'ocean cornucopia where you can reel in Chinook salmon weighing thirty pounds or more.
And just as unique, Oregon is home for nearly as many diverse people and professions.That’s what makes the Rose Festival so special. Because every year people from all parts of the state and the nation congregate here to enjoy the spirit which makes Oregon such a great place to live. At First National we’re proud to be a part of the Rose Festival. Welcome, visitors. Enjoy your stay.

History of the Portland Rose
It Began With a Rose Show
The Portland Rose Festival this year marks its 71st annual edition, starting in 1907, with a direct ancestry dating back to a rose show in a tent in 1889. The rose-growing enthusiasts who presented that first show have presented one every year since and in 1902 organized themselves as the Portland Rose Society.
In 1904 the Rose Society expanded the show to include a Rose Fiesta complete with a floral parade of 20 automobiles, horses, bicycles and a variety of wagons, carriages and other vehicles.
In 1905, at the close of the successful Lewis and Clark Exposition in Portland, Mayor Harry Lane proposed, in a speech, that some way be found to carry the exposition spirit and the promotional impact over into an annual festival which could be a festival of roses. Meanwhile, the Rose Fiesta continued through 1906.
In 1907, civic leaders took up the challenge and presented the first annual Rose Festival. Carrie Lee Chamberlain, daughter of the governor, became
rides a float in the Grand Floral Parade.
From then through 1929, the Queens were generally young socialites. Since 1930 the Queen has been a Portland high school senior girl. One princess is selected by the student body of each participating school, with the number of princesses varying according to the number of schools. This year the Court numbers 13.
The Royal Rosarians, a separate organization which takes part in many Rose Festival events, dates back to 1912. Administration and planning of the Rose Festival is directly carried out by the Portland Rose Festival Association, a volunteer non-profit corporation composed mainly of businessmen and women.
The Rose Festival has been presented every year since 1907 except two. In 1918 it was canceled because of America's entrance into World War I and in 1926 because of construction at Civic Stadium, site of the festival's major activities of that period.
Portland Fire Bureau has entered every Grand Floral Parade. Date of this particular entry is unknown.
"Queen Flora," and a plaque to her reign commences the Queen's Walk in the International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park. A leading attraction of that first festival was an illuminated parade of twenty floats on flat cars carried on the rails of Portland's electric trolley system. Pictures of that year show a floral parade as well, with horse-drawn and motor-drawn floats and thousands of marching children.
King Rex Gives Way to the Queen of Rosaria
From 1908 to 1913 a King Rex Oregonus ruled over the Rose Festival, supposedly coming from the waters, masked and mantled in mystery, only to reveal his true identity when he removed his huge beard at the festival's annual ball.
At the close of the 1913 Rose Festival it was announced that King Rex would abdicate in favor of a Queen of Rosaria, to be chosen by popular vote. Candidates represented various businesses and clubs and the winner was Thelma Hollingsworth. Queen Thelma still lives in Portland and frequently
All other years the Rose Festival has gone on, in spite of war, depression and even natural disaster. The Memorial Day flood of 1948 shattered the community, but it was decided to present a Rose Festival on a restricted basis as a community rallying point, and a curtailed Grand Floral Parade was run on the East Side.
The Juniors Join In
In a way, the hiatus of 1918 became the inspiration for the Junior Rose Festival and Junior Parade. Some kids in the Hollywood District decided they wanted a Rose Festival parade anyway, so they banded together and formed a small parade. The event grew over the years and in 1936 the Junior Rose Festival was made an official part of the Festival.
Since its beginning, the Rose Festival has continually grown and expanded until now it encompasses ten days and more than forty events. It has provided enjoyment of a wholesome nature to millions through the years and has exalted the beauties and advantages of Portland throughout the world.

I take great pleasure in welcoming you to one of America's oldest and greatest civic celebrations, the 71st Portland Rose Festival.
This year's theme of "World Records on Parade" promises to be an exceptional one particularly since we are welcoming world-wide visitors to Portland for this week. Our special guests, the representatives of the City of Sapporo, Japan, join us as we pay tribute to our Sister-City relationship, the 2Oth Anniversary of the Portland/Sapporo relationship.
I extend the warmest personal greetings from "The City of Roses."
City of Portland
The Hon. Neil Goldschmidt has been Mayor of Portland since 1972. Prior to that, he served with distinction as a Portland City Commissioner. As Mayor, he consistently has shown a personal and dedicated interest in people, the neighborhoods, a livable metropolitan environment, an exciting and safe urban area and downtown beautification. Mayor Goldschmidt has set long-term objectives for this City's development and directed the realized shorter-term goals and solutions.

Welcome to the 1979 Portland Rose Festival, our 71st. Over the years, the Festival has changed, always in keeping with the changing times around us. But even with the changes, the Festival has consistently held to its course of being a happy time of community and family enjoyment. That has been, and continues to be, its purpose and 1979 is no different. New events have been added and old ones improved, Every one of the ten days of the Festival is "jam packed" with interesting and enjoyable events... something to hold the interest of everyone. Please accept my best wishes to you and yours for a most enjoyable time.

James W. Nielson, Prime Minister of The Royal Rosarians.
Royal Rosarian Knighting Ceremony
Friday, June 8, Washington Park Garden Amphitheatre, IO a.m.
The Royal Rosarians are members of a 67-year-old businessmen's organization which forms the official greeter body of the City of Portland. Numbering some 200, they not only welcome distinguished visitors to Portland, they also travel to other points outside of Oregon to visit other festivals and occasions of note and represent the city there. During the Rose Festival, Rosarians perform many important functions, including solicitation of parade floats, assistance in fund raising, marshaling, escort duty and hospitality.
The Rosarians conduct their own ceremonial event, the Knighting Ceremony, presided over by the Prime Minister and other officers whose titles date back to the time of England's King Henry VII. At this pretty ceremonial, the Queen bestows honorary knighthood on visiting and local notables.

Work is nearly finished on major interior remodeling and renovation of the high-rise Hilton Hotel in downtown Portland.
Cost of the project, to be completed by summer, will be $1.25 million, according to Daniel A. Damon,
General Manager. Damon said remodeling of the 15-year-old structure is one of the most extensive in the Hilton Hotel Corporation’s western operation. The property was the first Hilton in the Northwest when construction was completed in the early 1960s.
Affected are all of the hotel’s 500 guest rooms, completely redecorated in four different color schemes. New furniture, carpeting, drapes and fixtures also are added. Deluxe suites are custom-designed and decorated.
The remodeling includes more than 6,700 rolls of vinyl, enough to stretch from the Hilton’s downtown location to the slopes of Mt. Hood. The 12,000 square yards of carpeting would cover more than two football fields and the 30,000 square yards of drapery fabric would cover nearly seven city blocks. Earlier, the Hilton completed remodeling in the front lobby and lounge and up-graded the block-square exhibit hall and ballroom.
Contractors and suppliers involved in the latest project are Stadler-Sorg Fixture Co., Nahorney Construction Co., Peake Industries, Inc., Paulson’s Floor Coverings and Interiors and McFadden Paint Co., all of Portland, and Hotel Equipment Co. of Los Angeles. All furniture is Drexel-Heritage.
Interior design coordinators representing the Hilton Corporation are Michael Stanley and Sharon Todd.

WORLD RECORDS ON PARADE
Pre-Parade Show, Memorial Coliseum, 9 a.m.
Premier spectacle of the Portland Rose Festival is the Grand Floral Parade; the two-hour all-floral parade seen by hundreds of thousands at curbside and millions on live television throughout the western United States, including Hawaii and Alaska.
The theme "World Records on Parade" is carried out in the intricate mechanical and floral design of the dozens of floats which sweep majestically through the arena floor of Memorial Coliseum and out onto the streets of Portland.
The parade is strictly controlled as to participation. Only floats, equestrian units and bands and marching units are permitted. A handful of "special" units is included, mainly consisting of special guests of the Festival, including visiting queens from festivals in other cities. (Page 30)
Grand Marshal is Hank Aaron (Page 4). The musical sparkle is enhanced by seven honor and guest high school bands from out-of-state (Pages 12-13). The Queen and her Court (Pages 6-7) will ride a special
float and so will the Junior Queen and Court (Page 16).
Floats will compete for fifteen major awards, headed by a Sweepstakes. Equestrian entries will be judged in five categories. Outstanding band will receive the 1938 Ralph Cake Court Award and firsts also will be awarded for best high school band outside Oregon and within Oregon.
A pre-parade show in the Coliseum will include short programs by the Calgary Police Pipe Band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the Salvation Army Band, Clackamas High School Band and Aloha High School of Beaverton. Jackson High School Band will play both American and Canadian national anthems and the 1979 Rose Festival Queen will signal the start of the parade.
The complete parade order of march begins on Page 25 and includes artists' renderings of floats and names of participants as available at press time.
