Chautauqua a Success
The St. Johns Chautauqua has
come and gone. The seven
days of entertainment were
highly enjoyed by our people.
The diversity of entertainment
nrovidod was des cned to inter
est all classes and us u result
each attraction was the best for
some of the people. The enter
tainments were all of a high
class, and the lectures, especial
ly, wore elevating, edifying und
entertaining. Those who attend
ed the Chautauqua throughout
were, so fur us learned, well
satisfied with it. Especially
interesting to the mature mind
were the lectures by Frank S.
Bohn Sunday afternoon, and
Montavilla Flowers Sunday eve
ning. Both dealt to some ex
tent with the world conllict.
Music lovers found much to en
joy in 'both a vocal and instru
mental way.
The Chautauqua was deemed
of so much value to the commu
nity that it was decided to ur
range for holding another here
next summer. The following
persona have obligated themsel
ves for the sale of G50 Bcaaon
tickets for noxt year's Chautau
qua in order to insure its com

A Revision Needed
A revision in street number
tner in St. Johns in one or two
instances at least would sure y
not be out of place. Especially
;a tMa tpufi of Svracuse street,
tlv chanced from Hayes
street. The street extends tar
beyond the railroad cut, and the
houses there, it is said possess
the same numbers as do some ot
ft limits on this street in bt.
inhns Formerly Hayes street
.una known as North and South
Umtaa at r opt Now when a num
hr nn Svracuse street is named
it takes a mind reader to conjure
whether It is Nortn oyrucuac.
South Syracuse or Syracuse be
yond the cut that is wanted. A
like condition is' said to prevail
on Willamette boulevard.
No selection has yet been made
as to the grain elevator site.
The matter is being threshed
out as we go to press today.
trL...ojni w understand at.
1.1,1.0 still has enual chance oi
ijeinn choeen as the site.
Will Be Something Doing
The Chautauqua ended in a
blaze of glory and the whole
town is talking about the mag
nificent success that it was from
every standpoint. It just goes to
show what the people of this
little old town or ours can do
when they feel so inclined. We
always knew it was in them and
we are glad that outsiders havo
at last taken cognizance of the
fact. It has finully come to pass
that everyone is putting away
his hammer and taking out his
horn; and this is the only sane
and really humun policy to pur
sue. St. Johns needs boosters
instcud of knockers. Well, we
will need those same horns
that announced the Chautauqua
to root for another product of
the Peninsula that will take
pace in our very midst next
Sunday. There is going to be
a very interesting, instructing,
and delightful day of events on
tho grounds that lie at the cor
ner of Smith uvenue and Burr
street. Now, just continue to
read. There will be a dinner
served by the Ladies of St.
Clement's on Sunday, July 29,
and this dinner will, begin as
soon after twelve as possible.
It is expected that there will
bo an enormous crowd present,
and the preparations tliat the
ladies arc making are in accor
dance with this prognostication.
Don't let that word frighten
you; we shall explain. The
different affairs that have been
given of .lute by these ladies
have proved such drawing cards
that they decided to try their
skill at. entertaining for the
day. They will have the dinner
around noon, and, like at all
grand events, there will bo n
selected program rendered
whilst the guests arc entertain
ing the inner man. Some ex
cellent talent lurks around the
PeninBiilu, and wo have tho as-
auranco that more wm uo some

to tho dinner a only 50 cents:
and with tho present high cost
of living as an opponent, one
could not get anything UKo
the dinner that will bo served
up at St. Clement's for tho
same nrice. Everyone lias to
eat, bo why not swear off eating
nt homo for that Sunday dinner
and como and get acquainted
w th us. Wo should certainly
appreciate it. After dinner hns
been Berveu we are ioiu mm
there will bo a ceremony unique
in the history of St. Johns the
blessing of tho Church lieu, a
belfry has been conatructed
recently by some of tho mem
bora of the pariah, and it will
all be ready to receive the boll.
We are told that this affair also
will bo interspersed with vur-
ioua musical renderings.
Nor ia that all: this is calcu
lated to be a day of days, a
day in which there will be
something doing every minute.
A lawn social is to follow this,
and tho same will continue until
Morpheua claims tho last vic
tim. Never mind our enigma
tical manner of expreasion. 'iho
last lawn social held here was
voted the greateat of its kind,
and it was voiced abroad that
those present had never spent a
more pleasurable afternoon and
evening. We certainly can re
peat, and we are going to uo it.
Everything one may desire will
ho found on the grounds, and
all we Want is the crowd to take
advantage of them. Ice cream.
cake, coftee and sandwiches win
be served throughout the alter
noon and evening to thoae who
desire them. There will also be
a musical program when the
shades of evening have closed
over the scene. Now, we tell
the people of St. Johns candidly
that this affair will be worth
while, and we expecct them to
tnkfi advantage of it. It is an
excellent chance to get together
and have a good time. We shall
exnect to see our town repre
aented iust to show that there
nre no hard feelincs in the fam
ilv. Don't foriret: Sunday July
29. Come at noon, if poaaible;

Successful Launching
Hands across tho sea were
stretched Saturday when an
American built ship was named
L'Aiglon, the French word l'6r
eagle, the National bird of the
United States and which was
the emblem of the French un
der the Bonapartes.
Mrs. Charles King, of Now
York, official sponser for the
vessel, which was launched at
at 4 o'clock at the Peninsula
Shipbuilding Company's pro
perty, received signal honor
in that she not alono christened
the L'Aiglon, but hud selected
the names well.
To her. fresh from the bust
ling metropolis of the east,
where all is agog through war
C reparation and where heart
eats are quickened with every
hour's details of the conflict
across the Atlantic, the pictures
of the American eagle, spread
for flight to the assistance of
the gallant French was an ap
peal. So In her choice of titles
for the hardy ship, which is
soon to wend nor way in At
lantic waters, none was re
garded as symbolic of the new
fraternity that has been ce
mented than that of the great
bird, who has continually stood
as a sentinel in the free repub
lic of the Western hemisphere.
And just as tho eagle Iuib
advanced confidently to meet nil
emergencies wherein America
was concerned, bo did the
L'Aiglon start down the ways
precisely at 4 o'clock, when tho
signal waB given nncl the barely
audible words of. the sponsor:
"I christen thee L'Aiglon."
wero emphasized with the crash
of a ribbon bedecked bottle of
loganberry juice.
It was the fourth of tho
Pcninsulu's ships to take a dip
and nt no plant hua such a cere
mony been more successful. Not

It was an event witnesaed by
many and was staged under the
direction of the Chamber of
Commerce, with municipal and
state officials in attendance. It
drew scores who had not be

the initial run. Men of tho
shipyard, mill und manufuctur-
ng plants left their work to see
the start. Preceding it W. P.
LaRoche, City Attorney, on be
iali of Muyor Baker, spoke of
the importance of the affair,
not solely as to the completion
of the hull, but that it meant
tho last private contract was off

as valuable and as essential as
ammunition for tho forces in the
trenches, for they compose the
anawer to tho menacing Ger

Probably no more enthusiastic
spectator was there than Charles
King, of the New York firm

He stood near his wife, when
the christening took place, and,

Will Rewrite Text Books
America will be the first
nation in the world to rewrito
her text books so that the chil
dren of this country will be
taught thrift in the school room.
According to an announcement
made today by tho Thrift, Edu
cation committee of the Nat
ional Education association,
radical innovation in the Ameri:
can school curriculu are about to
take place.
The lives of James, J. Hill,
Marshall Field, John Wnna
maker and other great Ameri
can business men will be stud
ied in the schools, and text
books on arithmetic, history,
English composition, domestic
science and household econo
mics will be subjected to radical
changes. For the first time in
the history of the world, thritt
and personal efficiency will bo
given scientific consideration in
the class room. Not the nar
row thrift of mere money sav
in', but the broader thrift of
Individual prcpurdncBs for prac
tical life will be taught, de

This is the sweeping signifi
cance of tho resolutions adopted
by the Notional Council of Edu
cation nt its meeting m Port
land last week. The resolutions
wore written and presented by
S. W. Straus, of New York,
Pros dent of the AmerJcun
Society for thrift. They point
out that on account of the wnr,
Amor cn must from now on
eliminate waste of every charac
ter, that President Wilson's first
message to the public alter the
declaration of war waa on
thrift; that tho only way to
safeguard tho economic future
of the nation Is through a hot
ter understanding or thrlit
which can bo mudo possibly
only through tho schoolroom and
that nt tho forthcoming moot
ing of tho Council of Education
ir Atlanta. Ga.. tho uchool or

plan for tho practical study of
thrift in the schools of Amer
ica. To Be Manufactured Here
No more steel plates, shapes,
burs, tinplutcs or other like pro
ducts, for supplying the local
demand will have to be hauled
across the cont men by tho first
of theear as they all will be
manufactured at dineront pro
minent ports on tho Pacific coast

order, according to Joseph R.
Bowles, president of the North
west Steel Compunv, who re
turned homo last Friday from
Now York.
Already plana am under way
for the establishment of large
rolling mill plants on this coast.
It waa intimated that many of
the , details in connection with
the starting of the enterprises
have been practically settled.
Mention was made of the bodies
of unlimited iron ore which
have been opened up in both
northorn and southern Califor
nia. Prophesy is made by the
returned Portlander that 1918
will be a great year in tho ship
building industry. He aaaerta
that there ia no doubt thut Port

In gorgeoiiB cars with aeuts of

A question frequently asked

board to appear for physical ex
amination, the absentee should
write the board, fully explain
ing the circumstances and ask
ing permission to present him
