PORTLAND, Nov. 13 Spruce pro--
ductlon for airplanes has peen stop

I instructions to this end reached all
camps in the northwest today. This
v order closed down all the camps

spruce trees and also those engaged

' plants. Shipments from the cut-up
' (plant at Vancouver, Washington,
; where the raw material Is reduced

1b also at an end under the order is
sued! today. This Is the first order
it is thought that the government
has Issued since actual fighting has
ceased overseas which throws any
! considerable number of men out ol
employment. In the various camps in
f. the Northwest where the spruce in
; dustry'ihas been carried on, thous
ands of men have been at work get
lag out the material for airplane
, construction, and with the end of the
.' war coming aa it diid the first of the

1 neoted with a detachment of infan

Nov. 11. At the same time Mr.

' prohibited them from excessive and
Intensive training. Mr. Marsters
who has a slight goitre was among

entrained from Roseburg about two
months ago. being a member of the
last division of selected men sent

Those Giving to the Present
Drive Fail to Realize Their
Are Donated Today By Those Liberal
ly Inclined, But Great Majority
Fail To Appreciate Work
To Be Done. V
Some of- our good people do not
understand the present United War
drive and don ot stop to figure thai
seven distinct societies, are represent
ed, and for this reason the 'subscrip
tions being made are far too small to
raise the quota for this county. Por
lnstance, if this call had been made
at seven different times SB It was
flrse planned, we know certain peo
ple In this city who would have giv
en not less than J6 to each .society,
yet when the omnilttee called on
them for the oombtned drive, they
have only pledged $5 or $10, not
stopping to realize where this will
leave us in the final count. The
committee had counted on several
subscriptions for $160 one for $200,
but at this writing only one sub
scription for $100, one for $75 and
3 for $50 have been reported. The
laboring people, as usual, have done
their full shore, and more. At noon
today, with the greater portion oi the
city canvassed, we are short fully BC
per cent of our quota which wil:
compel the several teams to re-canvass
their territory, and many will
be asked to double their pledges.
Doctor Lehrbach heads the list or
generous subscribers to the United
War Work drive, giving as his offer
ing to "the boys over there" his
check for an even $100. The Gol
den Rule Store came nex; with a
check for $75.00.
