the outstanding organizations of
the state by their investment in

the belief of Miss Ava B. Milam,
dean of the school of home eco

this assertion in speaking of the
$800 scholarship which the Rose

students who studied home eco

she opened the first course in
China In 1923. It was through
Dean Milam that the Roseburg
club learned of Miss Chen.
Not only have the women of

barely could speak English and
who is described as "vivacious,"

man, wife of a cook, the money
which the Spaniard had left to
her in a joint bank account.
The woman's name is Mrs. Ida
Giannini. The man, who died

a lonely, unmarried logger who
saved his money.
When Jiminez came In from
the woods, he used his $5 a month
room at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Giannini, and their son and
The Gianninls and Jiminez got
along fine. They never had but
one serious argument. That was
when Mr. Giannini wanted to
boost the rent to $8 a month. But
the rent stayed at $5.
