what the Oregon Federation of Wo

fellow beings. The report covers a
large field and Observer readers can
not afford to let the opportunity slip
and not learn of the scope and th
effective means of reaching the goal,
which the federation has. ; Following

Civil crvlee Reform,
Civil service reform sounds so
omlnounly political that most of us
shy off from It, lest we become con
taminated. Let us call It good citizen
ship and see how differently We look
at it. It means, .simply, putting all
public service into the merit system,
and training children to look upon
public service as au honorable occu
pation, father than an opportunity to
graft, or as a plum for political dis
tribution.. I am, authorized by ' the
board to place In the hands of our
committee IS to be offered as a prlz

"Good Citizenship." Thla Is dona,
hoping It will Induce some of the clubs
to do something locally.
