MISUNDERSTANDING CLEARED UP
A misunderstanding relative to the
canteen work of the Y. M. C. A. has
been cleared up by the War Depart
ment, which Issued the following:
"Matter of prices asked by Young
Men's Christian Association for its
articles sold In canteens overseas al
ready investigated by war department
and condition is being remedied. The
Young Men's Christian Association
was originally asked by General
Pershing to run the canteens for the
army on a cost basis. In order to do
this it had to reckon in price fixing
such overhead charges as transporta
tion charges and marine insurance so
that prices were much higher than in
this country.
"The Young Men's Christian Asso
ciation made no profits, but lost thou
sands of dollars. Arrangements now
made will enable them" to obtain sup
plies from sources that will reduce
overhead charges and keep prices
down."

PERSHING'S, "DO WITHOUT
IT" CLUBS
Organization of "do without It"
clubs In America, as a means
ot aiding the United War Work
campaign, which open November
11, was recommended by James
F. PerBhing, brother of Genoral
Pershing, in an address delivered
recently .in Portland In behalf
of the drive. He urged the
American people to make some
sacrifices in order to help "carry
on" the great undertaking that
is to furnish money for war work
in the battle zone during the
coming year. A great percent
age of American people, he said,
do not know, from any sacrifices
made thus far, that a war Is
in progress. Relaxation of activi
ties because of peace proposals,
he declared, should not be toler
ated, and asked people of the
country to throw their whole
energy and co-operation behind
this latest drive tor securing
funds for the seven big war
working agencies consolidated In
the campaign.
DUTY OF FARMERS TO
APPLY DRAFT BOARD
COUVAM..IS, Oct. 22. It Is the
duty of the farmer in Oregon to
apply to the dra.t board for deferred
classification (or all farm help need
ed, according to help specialist, J.
W. JBrewer. This Is recommended
by the war and the agricultural de
partments. "Through lack of knowledge of
the questtonaire or from mistaken
chivalry," he says, "men who are
far more valuable on the farm than
In the trenches will not ask for d'e
ferred classification "for themselves.
"Thero Is a prospect of serious
shortage in every coi;nty of the state
If the present supply is depleted any
tfurther. Daily cnlls come to this
office for farm help, but with the
heavy competition of shipyards and
Industries only a small part of the
demands can be met."

R. S. Dixon, a son. of R. B. Dixon,
has been appointed to the military
mounted police at Camp Lewis, and
Rate says that he wrote the boy, If
he needed a good horse he would
send up "Teddy Roosevelt", a thoro
bred. from the farm here. Mr. Dixon
is sure that the government mounts
furnished can never measure up to
this fine horses efficiency.
WHAT A11E YOU DOING TO HELP
WIN THE WAU?
Here are tnree ways you can help:
Use one spoon of sugar instead of
two.
Use substitutes instead of all flour.
Have your clothes cleaned and
pressed Instead of throwing them
away. If there are no holes or tears
In them they are good for lots of
wear yet. You'll be surprised to see
them aii.er they are cleaned up. i

BUENOS AIRES, Oct. 22. South
America 1b to ibe organized for Y.
M. C. A. war work along the same
lines as the European countries. The
War Work Council of tho Koung
Men's Christian Association in New
York has appointed Jay C. Field of
me Buenos Aires Y. M, C. A. to act
as Fleet Secretaiy in South America
in which capacity he will look after
the entertainment of United States
sailors whenever they land at any
South American port.
It Is proposed to have permanent
organizations In all the South Am
erican ports, under the direction of
ithe Y. M. C. A. Fleot Secretary,
which can on a moment's notice
prepare themselves to entertain any
number of sailors who may be sent
ashore on leave.
One night recently when an Am
erican cruiser wns in the port of
Buenos Aires, the Y. M. C. A. arrang
ed for the entertainment o 120
sailors in the homes of American
nndl English families.
As Buenos Aires has the only Y.
11. C. A. building in South America
large :.nough to look after a large
number of sailors, the first work of
the Y. M. C. A. committees will be
to provide building in each port
which will ho turned Into permanent
homes for American sailors during
their shore leave. V American fnmll
ios will be called upon to entertain
large numbers of them at their
homes.
PHACTICAL .EDUCATION.
But If the old study of arithmetic
had little value for direct iiBe in
work, it did have other uses.
Arithmetic, particularly mental,
arithmetic, makes people good rea
soned. When we were given those
old tankers about how many sheep
a man would have. If he had half as
many again and so on, to be determ
ined only after long and tortuous
processes, a fellow had to do some
thinking. .The long practice on this
ty(pe of problem made the graduates
of the little Red School Houso men
tally alert. The long examples in
lnterost and fractions niado them
accurate. They learned to porform
all processes with r.iethodlcal pre
cision, a gift that the graduates ot
modern schools do not always have.
For training In mental alertness
and accuracy, arithmetic Is one of
the corner stones of practical edu
cation. Algenra anu geometry unj
a great deal more serviceable and
developing along this line than most
people realize, practical education
means turning out young people
who can think tilings out straight
Tor themselves, and no subject Is
better Tor that than mathematics.
The old time schools overdldi geo
graphy. It has some effect to broad
en the mind. But the interminable
memory work In learning the rivers
of China andf the mountains of South
America was mostly lost time.
Much of tno information could be
given as a reading lesson.
Old fashioned education piacea
great emtphnsis on teaching people
in mini with intelligent Inflections
and clenr-enunciation. It was a fine
accomplishment, yet not very prac
tical. The modern tenaency towara
