When combinations, associations and

The Herald asks the co-oper
ation of all its readers and
friends in securing news items
throughout the Mt. Scott dis
trict. It is our aim to publish
all the news regardless of a per
son’s station or affiliations, but
we realize it is impossible to do
so without assistance. If you
know of items of interest in
your neighborhood send or tele
phone them in. or give us a tip
so we may get them. It will be
* PACIFIC COAST SHIPBUILDING
J. H. Rosseter, director of opera
tions of the shipping board, declares
that this coast can successfully com
pete in shipbuilding not only with
the east, but with the world. Climatic
conditions are so greatly in our favor
as to more than offset whatever dis
advantages there are. We can com
pete with the world and still give to
the skilled and unskilled workmen
more purchasing power than others
similarly employed can get anywhere
Our advantage is not altogether
our climate favorable for production.
We are very large exporters of food
stuffs, on which our distance com
petitors have to pay freight and ad
ditional profits. A given wage has
more purchasing power here than in
most places which compete with us.
In Europe labor has long been under
paid, with the result of physical de
terioration. Labor there has now de
clared that its standard of life must
be raised to the highest limit which
will permit of competition, and all
this adds to the cost of competitors
and is to our advantage in compet
ing for business.

DAVIS HOME FROM FRANCE
AFTER TWO YEARS' SERVICE
Good food insures good health, while
uncertain quality is always a jioor in
vestment, no matter how low the price.
John W. Davis, son of Mr. and
Mrs. C. W. Davis, of 6304 Ninety
fifth street, arrived home the latter
part of last week from a year’s over
seas service with the 93rd hospital
corps in France.
Mr. Davis an
swered his country’s call for men
shortly after war was declared in
1917, but was first sent to Fort
Seward, Alaska, where he remained
a year, going from there direct to
France. He arrived in New York
the first of July and received his
discharge at Camp Lewis last week.

EFFICIENCY OF THE RETURNED
Employers testify to the added ef
ficiency of the returned soldier. One
large Chicago institution recently ap
plied approved tests to its many
employes who had been in military
service. The tests showed that 64
per cent were better workers than
before, that 32 per cent were un
changed and that 4 per cent were
below their former level. The great
est improvement was found in men
of fairly long service. The men who
showed deterioration had all been
sent to the training camps only about
two months before the war ended.
In other words, they had been unset
tled in their habits and had not had
time to profit from military discip
line and instruction.

Grange to Meet in Evening
Pleasant Valley Grange called a
special meeting Saturday evening
Saturday evening and decided to hold
grange meetings in the evening dur
ing the busy summer season, to en
