Harry Lane Peace Center


Happy Birthday Oregon!

Thomas Jefferson hoped Astoria could one day be the seed of a separate West Coast democracy. He and industrialist Jacob Astor set forth an ambitious plan to make it a global trading hub.


I talked to my ex-fiancé two hours ago about my idea for the Harry Lane Peace Center in the Potato Chip Building. We have not conversed since I got my DNA results. I told her my Bohemian Royalty owned bigger castles than her family did.

“If we would have had a child, then that child would be the Star of Hope Child for the restoration of the monarchy of France and Czechoslovakia”

I told Vieginia about Harry Lane’s campaign to keep the United States out of Europe and World War One.

“That war was a Royal Family Feud between all our kinfolk! Harry got it right! Stay out of it – and mind your own business. He needs to be honored, his Peace Protest preserved – along with the Peace Sign of the Hippies! We need a Hippie Museum like the one they have in Vancouver Canada.

History is being made today, as it is, everyday. The Prime minister is stuck on how to exit the European Union that was formed to make sure there was not another World War. The Treaty of Versailles was signed to make sure there was not another World War One. Our President says it was a mistake to have launched the second Iraqi War, and is pulling our troops out = as a monument to his declaration. Is Trump moved by the Anti-War Movement that began in the sixties? Joe Romania had his futuristic building built in 1960. He wanted to create a monument, a better design going future.

Meanwhile, Ed Ray and his crack team of historians, are bent on De-naming historic figures, and, De-Histortorizing events that he and his A-Team deem un-worty. If Ed has his way, then, Columbus would have never discovered America. No black people would have been brought here. There would have been no Motown, or Black Gospel Music. No Chubby Checker, and The Twist, either. Black musicians had a huge influence on Rock and Roll. Native Americans took part in the Sixties Revolution. There would have been no Vietnam War – if we had our way! All there would be, is Tribal People living the lifestyle we hippies dreamed of living – in peace!

I see Old Hippies being lifted up in a cherry-picker so they can sign their names with a big brush, the brush of many colors. There will be giant heads of Joe and Harry on either side of the rainbow – giving the Peace Sign! Here are our modern business pioneers. End the De-naming Game – NOW! Stop wiping out the Hippies!

I see George Melvin Miller’s flying machine suspended from the ceiling. In this building, comes together the cities of Eugene, Fairmont, Springfield, and Glenwood. There will be peace in the valley! We can be united in a common cause!

Now, get up. Get up out of your easy chairs. Put down you smartphones – and do the twist, like we did last summer!

What I see is a permanent home for Ken’s bus ‘Further’. We have no guarantee Kesey’s offspring will – carry on! I would like to see the mural that graced the wall of the Springfield Creamery, replicated on that empty wall under the classic Coca-Cola sign that needs to be persevered – as is! There is an arch that awaits a rainbow, that will represent The Gateway to Peace.

Wait a minute! Wait a sec! I feel another vision coming on!

I see a Twist Dance Party held on the last Friday of every month. Super Twisters from colleges all over Laneland will come to show off their best moves! Who knows, The Twist might be an Olympic Sport. There will be guest bands – from Asia! Millions will come to the Peace Center to learn how to live, and dance……….in peace! I see the annual Riverside Twist-off, where citizens who live East of the River, meet those who live West of the river, and a Twist-off held in Knight Arena. I see happy smiling people sharing the universal language of Dance. Do you think my idea will fly?

I honor Chubby Checker for Black History Month. I grew up in Oakland California where the school dances had black students on one side of the gym, and white students on the other. This was not required. Many Oakland blacks came from the South where segregation was enforced. No one went to a dance looking for trouble.

I loved to dance. I would go over and watch the black dancers, and copy some of their movies. Dancing The Pony, I would leave my partner, and make wide arcs. My classmates began to surround me, and I got applause. This is 1962. Chubby brought folks of all color together. The rich class, imitated the poor people. It was a milestone in race relations. I got to add The Pony to these dances. Band will be allowed to play their own versions.

Joe Romania was just not selling cars. He was selling radios. And from these radios, came music, and, music sold cars. Joe donated land to build Lane Community College. There’s that name again! Lane has a new meaning, today. Who has not found freedom driving down a highway, or, along a levy, in your brand new Chevrolet? Music, has sold more products, than all the salesman – combined! Car radios, made America – great – and kept it that…………..way for a long time! We – can fly away! In our Chevrolet!

I lived in Boston in 1971 and got to see and talked to Jonathan Richman after he made his debut in a bar in Beverley. I got to ass his ‘Roadrunner’ to the jukebox. I submitted a plan to honor George Melvin Miller whose dream was a road from Winnemucca to the Sea. I believe Franklin Street should be changed to Harry Lane Way. This is not de-naming because no one has it out for Benjamin Franklin – yet!

Wait! One more thing. I see a Jukebox. You point your phone at it, and buy a tune. On the ceiling is a dazzling light show, with spot, ready to beam down on you. Here is your fifteen minutes of fame. Everyone gets to be a Star! The lights. dim.

Here’s to you, Joe! Here’s looking at you, Harry!

P.S. I just heard on the news, tomorrow is the day Oregon was admitted into the Union.




Here is The Pony.


Chubby Checker (birth name Ernest Evans; October 3, 1941) is an American rock ‘n roll singer and dancer. He is widely known for popularising many dance styles including the twist dance style, with his 1960 hit cover of Hank Ballard & The MidnightersR&B hit “The Twist” and the Pony with hit “Pony Time“. In September 2008, “The Twist” topped Billboards list of the most popular singles to have appeared in the Hot 100 since its debut in 1958, an honor it maintained for an August 2013 update of the list.[1] He also popularized the “Limbo Rock” and its trademark limbo dance, as well as various dance styles such as The Fly.

EUGENE, Ore. — You might know this Eugene building as one that looks like a “potato chip,” but it’s called the Joe Romania building.

Now the University of Oregon is considering opening the historic site to provide more parking spaces.

The Romania building carries a lot of sentimental meaning in town, so naturally, there are questions about any potential changes, especially for one University of Oregon professor who says he knew the original architect well.

Architect and UO professor Otton Poticha said: “Innovation, experimentation, and invention is exactly what this building is.”

Harry Lane (August 28, 1855 – May 23, 1917) was an American politician in the state of Oregon. A physician by training, Lane served as the head of the Oregon State Insane Asylum before being forced out by political enemies. After a decade practicing medicine the progressive Democrat Lane won election as the mayor of Portland in 1905, gaining re-election in 1907. Lane’s tenure in office was largely ineffective, although he did gain lasting recognition for having appointed the first female police officer in America in 1908 as well as for his vision that the city should host an annual Rose Festival.

In November 1912, Lane was elected to the United States Senate where he was a leading advocate for woman suffrage and a more benevolent relationship between the American government and the nation’s Native American population. He was one of a small handful of federal legislators to vote against American participation in the war in April 1917, an action which made him the prospective subject of a recall effort. This campaign was rendered moot when Lane died in office on May 23, 1917.

The 1912 Oregon ballot for United State Senate was cluttered. In addition to the Democrat Harry Lane and Bob Selling, candidate of the conservative wing of the Republican Party, progressive Republicans had other electoral alternatives, including candidates of the Progressive Party and the Popular Government Party. Meanwhile, Floyd Ramp stood for the Socialists and yet another candidate was nominee of the Prohibition Party.[14] Astoundingly, each of these six candidates took more than 5% of the vote — a fact which enabled the Democrat Lane to win election with a plurality of the vote in solidly Republican Oregon.[14] Intent on proving himself a man of the people, Harry Lane set what might be a record for campaign frugality in his victorious effort, with his entire race run for the princely sum of $75 plus travel expenses.[12]

He was also known for frugality as a congressman, and did not conform to the modern stereotype of the free-spending liberal. He was reported as being “the most inquisitive man in Congress” when it came to federal appropriations, and was known as “the human question mark” by his colleagues in the Senate. He was opposed to deficits and the “pure waste of public funds.”[7]

Lane’s daughter was herself a member of the Socialist Party of America, as was her husband, the journalist Isaac McBride.[12] Upon his election the increasingly radical Harry Lane wasted no time in hiring his son-in-law as his personal secretary and administrative assistant.[12] McBride remained active in the anti-militarism activities of the Socialist Party even while working for Lane and was the intermediary between “Big Bill” Haywood of the Industrial Workers of the World and Lane, gaining the Senator’s help in an unsuccessful effort to spare the life of IWW cause célèbre Joe Hill.[12]

While in Congress he served on the Committee on Forest Reservations and Game Protection, the Committee on Fisheries,[1] and the Committee on Indian Affairs.[15] Lane regarded the last of these as his most important work, criticizing longstanding government policy aimed at “civilizing” the Native American population.[15]

Lane pulled no punches:

I think the whole scheme of our management of the affairs of the Indian is a mistake. It is wrong; it is expensive to the Government; it is fatal to the Indians.[16]

The poverty of the Indian population was through no fault of their own, Lane declared, with the Native American people prostrate while “the white man is astride them and is at work taking everything they have.”[16]

In addition to his distinctly radical views on Indian Affairs, Lane championed a number of other controversial views as a member of the Senate. He was a leading advocate for the woman suffrage movement, introducing resolutions in its behalf.[9] Lane also supported government ownership of the national telephone and telegraph networks, the merchant marine, and certain mining corporations.[9] He was critical of the Clayton Antitrust Act for its toothless inability to restrain the avarice of “big business and crooks.”[17]

Lane challenged white supremacist Senator Hoke Smith of Georgia on the floor of the Senate to acknowledge the successes of black farmers in the American South and protested instances of racial discrimination inserted into appropriations legislation.[9] He was skeptical about American claims of violation of property rights by the government and insurgent movements in Mexico and was an outspoken opponent of imperialism and for the national independence of the Philippines.[18]

In was with respect to American involvement in World War I that Lane was his most outspoken. Late in 1915 Lane joined Socialist Meyer London in co-sponsoring a resolution criticizing the deepening sense of war-related fear and calling upon Woodrow Wilson to convene a conference of neutral nations with a view to ending the European conflict.[17] Even after the resumption of unlimited German submarine warfare in their effort to blockade their enemies, Lane refused to support an end to diplomatic relations with the German empire.[17] Lane was an outspoken opponent of Wilson’s plan to arm merchant ships, arguing that the conservative Democratic President was thereby attempting to usurp the Congressional prerogative to declare war and to replace it with Executive authority.[19]

This filibuster to block Wilson’s effort to expand war powers through his Armed Neutrality Bill proved successful. Lane and his co-thinkers, including Wisconsin Senator Robert M. La Follette Sr., became the targets of intense political hostility in the aftermath, however, with President Wilson demeaning them as “a little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own” who nevertheless “rendered the great Government of the United States helpless and contemptible.”[20] Many Oregonians were similarly incensed, and an outcry erupted for Lane’s recall from office.[21] An editorial in The Oregonian newspaper stated “Next to being ashamed of Harry Lane for what he has done … the people of Oregon are ashamed of themselves for having sent Harry Lane to the United States Senate.” Although the press lambasted him, a friend wrote in a letter that the majority of people “insist that you did exactly right … It is the newspapers that are doing most of the kicking.”[22]

Proposal 020




Coudenhove-Kalergi_1926Virginia is kin to Count Richard Nikolaus von Coudenhove-Kalergi who gave birth to the European Union. Otto von Habsburg shared the dream of a Paneuropean Union that may be carried out in a bloodline that Virginia shares. The idea of a New France in America is not so farfetched now that the Republicans are on the brink of creating world chaos from which a new order will rise.

When one views the funeral march of Otto you see the flag of the Paneuropean Union followed by the flags of related families from many nations. Where did they get these uniforms? Were they, and the flags, at ready? This looks like a prearranged marriage. I believe Virginia and I represent the World Union in the West.

Our Living Hippy Museum

Our Living Hippie Museum

They got a Hippie Museum in Vancouver. When I first beheld it, of course I thought the theme was about me ‘The Nameless Hippie’. Last week I talked with Christine Wandel about our ex-roommate, Paul Fauerso.  She chuckled when I described the facebook photograph of The Fauersos, as ‘The Whitenoids’.

“I never saw a whiter group of white people. They are whiter than white! Who would believe Paul was into Jazz?”

“Paul reminded me of Baby Huey!”

We talked about his wife.

“Her family are Texas oil barons. She comes from money. I let her know how pretty I thought she was, but, she did not return the compliment.” says Christine.

“Aha! So she is the one that wanted to get rid of us. You had been Peter’s lover, then Keith’s. When we became lovers, she had to get you away from Paul. She had you pegged as the Band Groupie, a Plaster Caster out for more trophies.”

This is all conjecture and heresy. Will I be sued by Big Oil? I told Christine about Paul being a top promoter of TM.

“He”s an advisor for the Maharishi. He gave a terrible interview to Jake that sounded like a commercial for an Investment Company.”

“His father was a banker.”

I then went into a long explanation about why the Zone – not becoming famous – added to the Spiritual Mystic that was part of James Taylor’s vision after our acid trip at McClure’s Beach. James was into Meher Baba, and Peter Shapiro was into Yogananda. When I saw the cardboard cut-out of a Hippie playing a sitar, Peter came to mind. I owned a sitar. I also owned a 1957 Ford Fairlane that resembles the one next to the Hippie Museum.

But, what got me was the reproduction of the kitchen that looked similar to the one at 13th. Street. There was a Butler’s panty where The Band Bread was kept. When alas the band went to bed ‘The Night Rodents’ slithered down from their small attic rooms on the third floor, and quietly nibbled on Paul’s bread. We were very hungry. I survived on this -theft of the Band Bread.

Here is Virginia’s illustrious kindred, Louis-Auguste-Victor, Count de Ghaisnes de Bourmont, who tried to restore the House of Bourbon, The de Bourmont cote of arms appears to contain the de Bar fish. Louis was a Marshall of France. Virginia’s mother and siblings look like Louis who is perhaps the most noble and connected person in all these Holy Blood and Grail Legends? Another old rival connects the House of Bourbon to the Priory de Sion and thus the Sinclair Legend made famous by Dan Brown in the Davinci Code.

Virginia grew up in a Salt Box house in Old Lyme Connecticut. Clarke Hambley was an artist.

Vinzenz was 1,300th Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece in Austria. From his first marriage (1981–1991) with Hélène de Cossé-Brissac (1960–) he had two daughters:
Princess Adelheid Marie Beatrice Zita (b. Vienna, 25 November 1981), married in Deutschfeistritz-Peggau on 31 January 2009 Count Dominic von(b. London, 7 October 1973), son of Count Hans Heinrich von Coudenhove Kalergi and wife Cornelia Carter Roberts

The International Paneuropean Union, also referred to as the Paneuropean Movement and the Pan-Europa Movement, is the oldest European unification movement. It began with the publishing of Count Richard Nikolaus von Coudenhove-Kalergi’s manifesto Paneuropa (1923), which presented the idea of a unified European State. Coudenhove-Kalergi, a member of the Bohemian Coudenhove-Kalergi family and the son of an Austro-Hungarian diplomat and a Japanese mother, was the organisation’s central figure and President until his 1972 death.

It is independent of all political parties, but has a set of principles by which it appraises politicians, parties, and institutions. The International Paneuropean Union has four main basic principles: liberalism, Christianity, social responsibility, and pro-Europeanism. At the same time, it openly welcomes and acknowledges the contributions of Judaism and Islam whose heritage they share.[1]

The organisation was prohibited by Nazi Germany in 1933, and was founded again after the Second World War.

Otto von Habsburg, the head of the Habsburg dynasty and former Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary, became involved with the Paneuropean Union in the 1930s, was elected its Vice President in 1957 and became its International President in 1973, after Coudenhove’s death.[1] The President of the Union since 2004 is Alain Terrenoire, former Member of Parliament in France and MEP and Director of the French Paneuropa-Union.[1] Otto became the International Honorary President of the International Paneuropean Union in 2004. Its Vice President is Walburga Habsburg Douglas, a member of the Swedish Parliament.[1]

The Union has branches in many European countries, with the General Secretariat located in Munich. In France, the Pan-Europa Union was founded by later President Georges Pompidou and later cabinet minister Louis Terrenoire, with the support of Charles de Gaulle. The Union achieved high political influence in France, particularly within the gaullist segment of French politics.

The Austrian-Hungarian border crossing where the Pan-European Picnic took place in 1989
Among its notable members were Albert Einstein, Fridtjof Nansen, Johan Ludwig Mowinckel, Thomas Mann, Franz Werfel, Bronisław Huberman, Aristide Briand, Konrad Adenauer, Sigmund Freud, Benedetto Croce, Bruno Kreisky, Léon Blum and Georges Pompidou.[2] Winston Churchill lauded the movement’s work for a unified Europe prior to the war in his famous Zurich speech in 1946.[3][4]

Grounded in liberal democratic values, the Paneuropean Union was considered staunchly anti-communist from its inception and especially during the Cold War. For this reason, the organisation was much reviled by the communist regimes of the Eastern Bloc. The organisation became renowned for its role in organising the Pan-European Picnic, an important event during the Revolutions of 1989.

Coudenhove-Kalergi is a noble Bohemian family of mixed European descent formed when Franz Karl Coudenhove (1825-1893) married Maria Kalergi (1840-1877). The Coudenhoves had been Counts of the Holy Roman Empire since 1790 and rose to great estate in the Netherlands and Belgium. After the upheaval of the French Revolution, they followed their dukes from the Low Countries into Austria. Maria’s family had a great name in Crete.[1]
History[edit source | edit]
The Coudenhove family dates back to the Duchy of Brabant nobleman and crusader Gerolf I de Coudenhove (died 1259) and, after it fought for the Habsburgs in the Dutch Revolt, it moved to Flanders before the Habsburgs and Coudenhoves were both driven to Austria by that war.[2]
The Kallergis claimed descent from the Byzantine Phokas family, which produced several generals and an emperor (Nikephoros II). During the Venetian rule over Crete, the Kallergis family was one of the most important Greek Orthodox families in the island.

If  Virginia and I could have had children! Did James Bond sire a child? I am, the real James Bond. The enemy is at the gate. I have been keeping them at bay. Time for me to receive some credit.

Bourmont and Breze Castles

The Château de Bourmont is located in the commune of Freigné in the Department of Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire, France.


The La Tour-Landry, then mesh of La Tour-Landry held the lands of Bourmont since XIVe century. By the alliance in 1691, Marie-Hélène de Maillé de La Tour – Landry (1670-1752) with Marie-Henry, count of Ghaisne (1662-1710), it passes to the family of Ghaisne de Bourmont, to which it still belongs.

In 1773, the Château de Bourmont is the place of birth of Louis Auguste Victor de Ghaisne de Bourmont, author of the taken of Algiers in 1830. Conquest by which it will be made Marshal of France.

In 1795, during the chouannerie, the Viscount of Scepaux established his headquarters.

Claire Clémence de Maillé-Brézé (25 February 1628 – 16 April 1694) was a French noblewoman from the Brézé family and a niece of Cardinal Richelieu. She married Louis de Bourbon, Prince of Condé, known as Le Grand Condé (The Great Condé), and became the mother of Henri Jules. She was Princess of Condé and Duchess of Fronsac.

Brézé was the name of a noble Angevin family. The founder and most famous member of the family was Pierre de Brézé (c. 1410-1465), one of the trusted soldiers and statesmen of Charles VII. He was succeeded as seneschal of Normandy by his eldest son, Jacques de Brézé (c. 1440-1490), count of Maulevrier; and then by his grandson, Louis de Brézé (died 1531), husband of the famous Diane de Poitiers, whose tomb in Rouen Cathedral, attributed to Jean Goujon and Jean Cousin the Elder, is a splendid example of French Renaissance work.

For several years I have been trying to bring to the attention of the Austrian Government the existence of the large canvas at the University of Oregon Museum titled ‘The Last Audience of the Habsburgs’ that was smuggled out of Austria. Alas, I have found just the right person. He is my kindred, Karl Schwarzenberg, who himself had to flee a oppressive regime. Karl opposes Putin, and backs Britain. I will contact him and see if he would like to come give a talk on this painting. His relative, Prince Felix Schwarzenberg, restored the Habsburg Empire.

John Presco

President: Royal Rosamond Press


Prince Felix of Schwarzenberg (German: Felix Prinz zu Schwarzenberg; 2 October 1800 – 5 April 1852) was a Bohemian nobleman and an Austrian statesman who restored the Habsburg Empire as a European great power following the Revolutions of 1848. He served as Minister-President of the Austrian Empire and Foreign Minister of the Austrian Empirefrom 1848 to 1852.


Karel Schwarzenberg is the Prince of Schwarzenberg, Duke of Krumlov, former first Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and honorary Chairman of Top 09 party. Schwarzenberg was also a Member of the Senate of the Czech Parliament and a candidate for the President of the Czech Republic in the 2013 presidential election. He is noted as a pro-European member of the center-right governing coalition.

Schwarzenberg’s family, who once ranked among the oldest and wealthiest aristocrats in Central Europe, had to leave the Czechoslovakia after the Communist coup of 1948. He spent most of his adult life in Austria to plot against communism. He is a great proponent of human rights and has been for his entire life. In 1989, he was awarded, together with Lech Wałesa, the Council of Europe’s Human Rights Award. Lan Anh Vu sat down with Schwarzenberg to learn more about his political life, the challenges he faced and his advice for young people across the world when it comes to pursuing a career in politics.

As told to Lan Anh Vu

My Career in Politics

In my early childhood, I was an observer of politics. In 1948, when the Communists took over, I was ten years old when I had to leave the Czechoslovakia and move to Austria. When I went to the school in Vienna to study law, I engaged in some political activities and became active in promoting human rights. At Munich university where I studied Graz and forestry, I was elected to student government. Due to the early death of my adoptive father, Jindrich Schwarzenberg, I had to cut my studies short and start managing the family properties.

From 1984 to 1991, I became president of the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights. I pushed for human rights in Europe and was negotiating the question of human rights in the former USSR, Bulgaria, Kosovo and the Czech Republic.

When the Communist regime fell in 1989 , I returned to live in the Czechoslovakia and work for the late President Vaclav Havel. In 1990, I was appointed as the Chancellor of the Office of the President.

Some people told me I should become a senator. I first ran in the senate elections in 2002 and was unsuccessful, and in 2004 I ran again, succeeded and was elected a senator. Three years later, I became the foreign minister of the Czech Republic. Politics has been a constant part of my life ever since childhood.

My whole life I fought for liberty and democracy. I always thought that if you had opportunities ahead, you have responsibilities and should do something for your country.


When this unfinished canvas was first exhibited in Eugene fifty years ago, it was described as a “painting with a history as romantic as old Vienna.” Given that it was smuggled into the United States in a carpet roll by a political refugee, this claim is not unfounded.

The artist began the work in October of 1918 at Schönbrunn Palace, where the young Empress Zita (1892 – 1989) received an audience of war orphans and a group of wealthy noblewomen, the Organization of War Godmothers, who had “adopted” them. Within hours, Empress Zita (shown seated on her throne), her husband, and their own eight children were forced to flee across the Swiss border because of the contentious political climate. Despite several attempts, they were never able to reestablish themselves on their thrones; both the Emperor and Empress died in exile.

The unsettlingly incomplete canvas mirrors the frustrated desires of both the artist, who spent the rest of his life wandering the globe, and the people pictured in it, many of whom were displaced in the aftermath of the First World War. Yet the audience members wear placid, even bored expressions as the children present their flowers, betraying no portent that one of the oldest dynasties in Europe would crumble within a matter of days.

1. Siesel “Bud” Canaday

When Jakob P. Canaday, a Florida investor, died in 2004 of throat
cancer, he left behind plans to stash his millions in a long-lasting
trust with directions that he would recoup the money if and when his
“human remains are revived and restored to life,” according to court

On the eve of Mr. Canaday’s death, however, his two daughters produced a
new will, which left his fortune to them.

Now there’s a lawsuit pending in Broward County, Fla., Circuit Court.
Mr. Canaday’s brother, Siesel “Bud” Canaday, a retired Wall Street bond
trader, says his sibling always wanted to be frozen and insists that the
second will is not valid. No matter how bizarre his brother’s choices
may be, Mr. Canaday says, “it’s tradition to honor the will of the
deceased.” Daughter Michelle Canaday declined to comment on the case.
