Bachelors to Give Poor
Children Real Xmas
The Bachelor club has launch
e 1 unon a most praiseworthy and
ennobling project, and that is to
Kive the poor children ol bt.
Johns a real Christmas with all
the rood cheer that goes with it.
The Club has completed ar
rangements for conducting a
systematic campaign for funds
and supplies to make a thorough
success of this laudable project.
Members of the Club have been
assigned different sections of the
city to solicit cash, wearing ap
parel, groceries, shoes, etc., and
also to ascertain the names of
all the worthy poor children re
siding in each district. The
strfres and other business houses
will be solicited for funds and
supplies, and it is confidently
believed by the Bachelors that
at lea3t $500 in cash or its equiva
lent will in this manner bo se
cured for disbursement where it
will do the most good. Any one
having knowledge of poor child
ren in the city tire nlxo request
ed to notify members of the Club,
ns the members are quite anxious
that none be overlooked ut
Christmas time.
The Bachelors have announced
a Charity Ball to take place in
the skating rink Monday evening,
December 22, which the Club
will finance und turn over the
entire proceeds to the Christ
mas fund. Rudd's orchestra
will furnish the music, and it is
expected that this dance, the
first charity ball to be held in
the city, it is said, will be the
most largely attended and most
joyous over given on the pen
insula. Tickets $1.00 per couple;
extra jadies 50 cents each.
Tho Bachelors aredeservingof
unstinted praise for entering
upon ami iMiding4hoir energies
to such u noble purpose, To

Chr'.-tmns lido is a project that
cannot be lauded ton highly, and
it proves anew that the Bachelors
are of the salt of the earth nnd
tho Club is composed of the most
humane; charitably disposed and
tho- best young manhood in St.
Johns. Tho people of this com
munity should show their appre
ciation by rendering all possible

account, either ut the same
ofllce or ut different offices.
All accounts shall be opened
in person by tho depositor or his
authorized repesentutive. After
opening, an account,, a depositor
may forward subsequent deposit
to the pojtofllco by registered
mail or by money order made
payable to the postmaster.
No charges or fees are collect
ed or required from depositors in
connection with the opening of
accounts or tho subsequent de
posit or withdrawal of pionoys.
When a person applies lo open
nn account, ho shall, furnish the.
necessary information to enable
the postmaster to nil out an ap
plication, which the depositor
will then bo required to sign.

postal savings certificates issued
in fixed denominations of $1, $2,
$5, $10, $20. $50 nnd $100, each

Sex Hygiene in Schools
University of Oregon, Eugene,
Nov. 25. Tho tench inc of sex
hygiene in schools is u part of
tins year's topics conducted by
the University of Oregon with
parent-teacher associations. Tho
difficulties of the problem nre
thus recognized by the Universi
ty in its announcement of the
"The necess'tv of teachinir tho
children the facts of sex and
reproduction is now nretty iren-
erally admitted; just how and by
whom is a more difficult problem.
The concensus of opinion seems
to be that it should be taught by
tho parent; it is likewise gen
erally agreed that the parent will
not do it. It, therefore, devolves
upon the teacher.'
The ordinary teacher, unless
possessed of a knowledge of
biology nnd human physiology
and of broad human sympathies,
cannot do it. Our normal schools
and colleges are introducing
courses to fit teachers for this
work, but at present there uro
few. Nor should it be attempted
without careful study and pre
paration. The parents do it much more
easily if they begin when tho
child is young; three or four or
five years of age, whenever the
child first asks concerning his
origin. The knowledge cun then
be imparted gradually und in
connection - with plant or nnimul
life, and will thus assume its
proper relationship and not ap
pear an isolated problem peculiar
to mankind.
Evidences of lack of instruc
tion in sex hygiene ure seen in
tho indecent pictures so frequent
ly found on the school premises,
the language among the children
and tho stories told by them, and
in the offensive notes so often
discovered by the teacher in their
possession. If children could be
taught the simple truths of sex
hygiene in the proper way,
dflicultios of this- kind would bo
ensily remedied."

postofike, may forward the

will be provided with an applica
tion form, which shall be proper
ly filled out by the intending de
positor. In case of the death of n de
positor tho amount standing to
his credit will bo paid to the ex
ecutor or administrator of his
estnto upon compliance with
necessary requirements. In
case of the death of u depositor
intestate, where no formnl nd
ministration is desired by his re
latives, tho Third Assistant Post
master General mny authorize
tho postmaster, upon obtaining
an affidavit in proper form, to
pay tho amount to tho persons
entitled und iv the State luws to
receive it.
A depositor may exchange the
whole or any part of his doposits
in sums of $20, or any multiple
of $20 up to and including $500,
for United States registered or
coupon bonds bearing interest
at tho rato of 25 per cent per

Postal savings deposits which
have been exchanged for bonds
are not counted ns a part of the
maximum of $500 allowed one
depositor, and there is no limita
tion upon tho amount of postal
savings bonds which may be
acquired by a depositor.

More About Parks
Editor Review: Will you give
mo space for u few words in your
vnlunblo paper to the people of
North St. Johns on the question
of a park?
It seems that the Council or
somebody is muddled on this im
portant question. I have con
fidence in tho judgment of the
common people more than law
yers or real estate men, who ure
working for their own pecuniary
interests. Of course the real
estate men own the earth and
have the people foul, but the
people who mukoSl. Johns a fit
place tti live in !arc the people
who arc building homes here and
have not got them for sale. Now
theso people ure willing to en
dure hurdships for the suke of u
home. They nre willing lo live
in shacks for a wljile, that they
mny build u boavtiful home later
Wo nil agree that St. Johns
stands sadly in need of parks and
should have parks for tlie accom
modation of our wives und child
ren. It is not the purpose of
thisnrticle to describe just how
they should be arranged that
is another consideration that
can be handled after we get
the site. Now, I hnvo a proposi
tion for the people of North St.
Johns, nnd that is this: That
we cull u innBS meeting for our
part of town to consider this
important question of just how
we want our homes improved,
and just whnt wu arc willing to
sttcrillce for it. Also location
for our park in our midst. And
let's not worry about the other
part of town, but advise them
to do as wo have done, and then
we nuiy co-operate with them in
beautifying the whole city. Then
when strangers visit us they
will remark what a beautiful
home you have! In regard to
real estate, I tun only interested
in two lots on North Edison
street. This is my home, nnd 1
urn anxious for n pnrk down this
way, and I willlmllengo any
one in St. Johns to show a more
beautiful park site than the one
located between North Edison
and Fillmore, running north -100
feet from North St. Johns avenue.
1 have no sympathy for that
argument that we ure soon going
into Portland, and now is the
time to buy and let Portlund
help pay our debts. I sny if we
are soon going into Portland,
lei's go in clean and willing to
pay our own debts. So whethor
wo stay out or go in, let's pro
vide an ideal homo for ourselves
and work to that end, nnd if the
time over comes when wo do go
into Portland, Portland people
will know that they will have to
do something for us because we
have ideals. Now let's whoop
up tho mass meeting.
Yours for parks for our wives
and children,

A Neat Address
A brief nddress delivered by
Rufus C. Holmnn, Chairman
Board of County Commissioners
for Multnomah County, on the
occasion of the opening of tho
St. Johns Library November 22:
Mr. chairman, friends and
neighbors of St. Johns: I ad
dress you as friends und neigh
bors, for ullhough I live in u
distnnt part of the county on the
other side of tho river, yet there
are no barriers between us nnd
our problems, hopes und nmbi
tions are one.
In olden times and in other
communities where the inhab
itants of the land lived in ignor
ance nnd superstition, the strang
er was looked upon with sus
picion, if not with actual enmity
and was usually an unwelcome
Caesar, when describing anc
ient Gaul, speaks of the numerous
warlike tribes there and the
rivers nnd mountain ranges
which separated them one from
the other, but he says that the
greatest barrier which kept them
npurt was tho lack of knowledge
of each other.
Now, with civilization.und en
lightenment comes mutual under
standings nnd fellow sympnthy,
nnd instead of a strong, vigorous
people working nt cross purposes
nnd continually thwarting each
other, we find harmony nnd unity
of action and progress for the
common good.
This, to my mind, is tho im
portant work of the library as
sociation. Not only is a place
of comfort und convenience pro
vided for nil those who will but
push open the door und enter,
wherein the treasures of all the
nges may bo garnered and glean
ed, not ns the miser counts his
goid, but ns the grout und good
Creator distributes 1 1 is sunshine;
but through constantly meeting
together und studing the prob
lems und progress of nil the peo
ples of history, we ure taught
that what is your neighbors'
welfare is your welfare, and
what is your nation's problem
is your problem, and like a good
citizen you will bend your back
to the task und work for the suc
cess of our various public enter
prises. I repeat, this, to my mind, is
tho great and important work of
the public library, nnd therefore
u proper institution to be includ
ed in the governmental program;
for, as you know, the public
library is maintained by a spec
ial tux levy not to exceed 5-10 of
a mill in any ono year. To what
use you will make of it rests en
tirely with you. Whether this
library shall be a deserted place,
us silent us the tomb und useless,
or whether it shall bo used to
its fullest capacity as a place of
common interest, nnd the build
ing, books nnd contents worn
out in t:me, us nil useful tools
are, remains with you.
It is horo to bo usod wo be
seech you to make tho most of it.
The great fund of information
contained in tho books here is
useless while hid behind the
bindings. You must transfer
that information to yoursclvos
und put it to work for your own
nnd tho public wolfnro. In that
way only can each of us do his
part in raising tho standard of
our citizenship.
It is but proper that at this we
should all acknowledge ourgrati
tude to one of our noblo citizens
who is ono of your townsmon,
who, by his generosity, bus
mude possible this handsome
institution. I rofor to Mr. M.
L. Holbrook, who donated this
vnluable plot of ground upon
which this building is erected.
May he live long and prospor,
and may this place bo so con
ducted and patronized that ho
will never have occasion to re
gret his most generous act.
Modern government is inter
esting itself today, not so much
wth armies and navies and war
as of old, but more and more
with internal development, such
as river and harbor improve
ments, scientific highway con
struction, improved schools and
library facilities. Let us make
the most of our opportunities.
Let us not deny tho privileges
of a liberal education to some
struggling Burns or a Lincoln.
Let us take the best of care of
this property and all that per
tains to it, but by constant use
let us wear it out and thereby
add some bright and happy
moments and possibly years to
the good people of St. Johns.

Fire Saturday Morning
Fire nt the wnrehouHO of the
Lauthers' Mercantile- Company
on Bradford street Saturday
morning at about 0:30 caused
damage to the amount of about
$5,000. The fire is believed to
have been started among somu
chair or other inflammable mater
ial lying between the ware house
und a freight car standing on
tho sidetrack. The theory n ad
vanced that some tramp slept on
the debris, und on leaving in the
morning dropped n lighted match.
The fire department was quickly
on the ground und controlled the
flames before they could reach
any other building. The greater
portion of the ware house was
saved, but much of the contents,
consisting of cement, coronla
and other articles, were miuud
by tho flumes und water. Ma
chinery und other material be
longing to the Oregon Fruit
Cleaner Company, stored in the
ware houso, were scorched nnd
damaged to some extent, Tho
freight car was slightly dam
aged by tho fire. There was
about $2000 insurance carried on
