MAYOR ROIPHS ESTIMATE
Mayor Folph. who is not Unused to
crowds, estimated that 309,000 persons
were present. If there were less, no on*
i had the courage to say so, because th*
entire city jscemed to be there, cheering,
shouting, smiling, laughing:—until the
filled ground under foot appeared to
swell like the waters of the bay and
the feky above to tremble with the noise
j of It, waking a fear here and there that
even the swooping aviators might flrpi
rough sailing in the cloudless dome.
It remained for Clarence R. Ward,
the architect who designed the Ma
chinery building, for ■which the ground
j breaking ceremonies were h«ld, t«»
sound in his brief speech the keynote
of the thought that swung the crowd.
"I>et me ask our critics.' - he satd, "not
to make the miid fly, hut to hHp us
mnke the dirt fly."
