FOREIGN-BORN IN OREGON
Figures compiled by the interstate
department of the Y. W. C. A. pub
lished in the daily press show that
there are more than 120,000 foreign-
born people in Oregon, 17,000 of whom
are unable to speak American and
8000 whom are illiterate. In Portland
alone there are 50,000 foreigners, 5000
unable to speak American and there
are eight foreign settlements in eight
counties of the state.
This makes the Americanization
program of the association loom large,
with work begun only in Portland,
where, under the direction of a com
mittee of prominent men and women
and one paid secretary, three classes
have been started with capable in
structors in charge.

Sons of Norway will not Build. The
local lodge of the fraternity “The
Sons of Norway”, has for some years
been raising a building fund. Several
properties have from time to time
been considered, but up to the pre-
sent price and location have been
obstacles against each proposal pre-
sented. The last proposal was pre-
sented before the lodge at its meet-
ing on Saturday, the 17th inst., re-
garding a property at East Couch
and Seventh. The building and
ground was offered at a reasonable
figure but the cost of reconstructing
the building to suit the purpose of the
lodge, together with the location,
were prime factors in a negative vote.
The lodge is at the present time meet
ing weekly at the Masonic Temple,
where also the local lodge of the
“Daughters of Norway” meets inter-

Returned Home to Die—Last Wed
nesday morning Fred Lowzow re
turned with his wife from Albu
querque, New Mexico, in compliance
with her wishes to be among friends
of her home city when the sable
angel of death should lay its cold
hand upon her. About 18 months
ago Mr. Lowzow, who is a machinist,'
was advised by physicians to take his
wife to the higher altitude and rarer
atmosphere of the state named in an
effort to save her from succumbing
to tuberculosis. The change of climate
did not bring the improvement hoped
for, and when she felt life slipping
away she pleaded to be taken home
to die in Portland, where she had
lived for many years after coming
from Norway. So the journey home
was undertaken, and only 24 hours
after arrival she passed away at the
home of her sister, Mrs. Esther
Merrithew, in Lents, Thursday morn
ing, 21st instant. Funeral service
was held Monday forenoon conducted
by Rev. M. A. Christensen, of Our
Savior’s Norwegian Lutheran church.
Mrs. Lowzow was a native of
Christiania, Norway, and had been
married five years. Members of the
family surviving, besides husband,
are one sister and two brothers, in
this city, one sister in Oakland,
California, and one sister and two
brothers in Morristown, Pa.
American Day Celebration.— An

League, The program includes con-
cert by the Monday Musical Club
orchestra, organ recital by Lucien E.

H. Pence. Admission is free and
everybody is invited.
CAMPAIGN TO NATURALIZE
A nation-wide campaign for the
naturalization of the thousands of ex-
service men of foreign birth has been
started by The American Legion. The
national commander has sent instruc
tions to department commanders who
will transmit them to all posts. Posts
will conduct a canvass to ascertain
how many men are eligible to citizen
ship and have not received their pa
pers and notify them where and when
they can best appear for examination.
The law provides that any man who
served honorably is eligible to citizen
ship without having to pay federal
fees and without having to prove five
years residence in this country. His
honorable discharge is taken as proof
of his moral qualifications.
THE HAND OF HELPFUL KIND
NESS TO BE EXTENDED.
The tragic accident occuring a few
days ago in which Florence Rostad,
a high school girl, 16 years of age,
lost her left arm and lower limb, has
stirred sympathy to action for rais
ing a fund in her behalf so that when
she emerges from the hospital
maimed, with nearly all the portals
to the hopes and aspirations of young
womanhood closed to her, she may
still become a useful, and possibly,
a happy member of society.
The Evening Telegram has, with a
splendid spirit of helpfulness, under-
taken to establish a Florence Rostad
Fund, which shall be the means of
securing for her the appliances to
restore physical activity as far as
possible, and reshape and carry for
ward her education so that she may
not become a helpless dependant, for
all who know her are unanimous in
the expression that she is one of the
sweetest characters of young girlhood
to be found in Portland.
parents being in very moderate cir
cumstances, are of course, unable to
provide those things which might so
far overcome her misfortune as to
enable her to still retain a bright out
look upon life and emerge from the
struggle between hope and despair.
All contributions should be sent
directly to the Evening Telegram.
The people of Portland have before
shown a splendid spirit of helpful
kindness to others in similar circum
stances and aided them to positions
of usefulness and self-respecting
existence, and those who have con
tributed have seen and felt the
blessedenss of their action.
A few days ago the physician in
attendance on ~
Florence Rostad in an
effort at consolation said to her:
“When you get well you will get an
artificial arm and hand that will do
almost all the things your natural
hand did.” Smilingly she asked in
reply: “Doctor, will I be able to play
the piano?” The light of hope that
shone in her eyes and the pathos of
the situation was too much for the
physician accustomed as he must be
to such circumstances, Silenced he
hastened out to hide his own welling
tears. To a friend who came to see
her she said: “If I only hadn’t lost my
hand I would now be very happy
though I had lost my foot.” These
expressions reveal the sweet charac-
ter of the girl.
With thousands of people in this
city blessed with health, happiness,
comfort and wealth able to contribute
without missing it should be an easy
matter to assemble a fund sufficient
to adequately care for this unfortu
nate. Let a little corner of the heart
be opened for the shining reflection
of “What ye have done for one of
these, ye have done for me.
