"Here in this shipyard you
are doing something really
worth while. You are render
ing your country a real service
in producing shipa with which
to win this war. The worst
that could happen would be for
this industry to be crippled.
This is no time for strikes.
The sooner the Government's
needs for ships is supplied, the
sooner the war be brought to a
close." The speaker was Vice
President Marshall who during
the noon hour last Friday ad
dressed 900 workmen in the
Grant Smith - Porter - Guthrie
Shipbuilding Company's yards
at St. Johns. Using a pile of
lumber as a platform, Mr. Mar
shall commended the workmen,
who stood on freight trucks and
railroad cars, for their industry
and patriotism. "We are at
war with the imperial German
government and it is not the
time for wrangling among our
selves over petty differences,"
said Mr. Marshall. "Lot's be
good' common everyday Ameri
cans. You men are equally
interested with the President
and the members of his Cab
inet in having this war pro
secuted successfully. My idea
of patriotism is not how much
a man can make as a direct re
suit of war time conditions, but
how much of a sacrifice ho can
make. Wo all should and must
make some sucriflcc, no matter
how small it may seem when
compared to the sacrifice tho
soldier in the trenches is mak
ing." ,
Doing His Bit
From California 1 have a let
tor from a man who reads, and
he tells mo he's found a news
boy, as freckled as a shrimp
omelotto, and u pair of eyes that
glow from something warm
away inside. And ho says that
every afternoon this freckled
boy., is porched upon, an old ash
can and people come and buy
his wares and go, excepting for
tho poriod from four to half
past four, when he's deaf to
nil requests from customers.
And at that time on everyday
an old man comes who'B blind,
and perches there besido the
boy, who puts his lips clooo to
the ear of his old friend and
reads tho daily story of tho
war. And slurs tho words ho
doesn't know, at which the old
man smiles, but says no word.
And this he does on every day,
and when ho's through tho old
man goes with tapping stick
along tho street, and from his
perch the newsboy calls his
wares again, nnd in tho letter
from the man who tells mo this
1 read: ,
"This tiny Samaritan calls it
doin' his bit,' and 1 wnnt to
know K. C. B., if within that
diminutive frame dwells not
the promise of a splendid future
and if there is any soldier upon
tho battlefield with a nobler ideal
than pulsates in the heart of
that sweet faced child?" Of
course there isn't, for tho good
it does spreads past the boy to
him who writes, and then to
mn ntul nn to vou. and we're all
glad there's such a boy; and
gladness come to us that way is
cood to have. K. C. B. in Los
Angeles Examiner.
Just a Pair of Gloves
Just a little pair o' gloves,
Sorter thin an' worn:
With th' fingers neatly darned,
Like they had been torn.
Just a little pair o' gloves,
Not s' much to see
God Himself alone can guess
What they mean to me!
Just a little pair o gloves,
Sorter tossed aside;
Limp and quiet, folded up.
Like their soul-has died!
Every finger seerns to look
Lonely an' my hand
Trembles as it touches them
Who can understand?
Just a little pair o' gloves.
When she tossed 'em there
Singin' like, she turned to go,
nidnt' have a care.
Kissin' them? A prayer, a tear?
Ah! my head will bow
Just a little pair o' glove3.

Tho great event of the past
week, according to any one
who was in it, was tho boat
trip to Rainier for tho football
game of last Saturday. James
John students and faculty, to
the number of 83, on tho char
tered steamer Grahamona stat
ed out for a good time and a
good game. Did they succeed?
Yen Bo! For a thoroughly
fine time for everybody concern
ed, and no regrets, commend us
to a Jamc3 John high school
crowd on a trip of this sort.
Owing to a heavy fog which
dropped upon us very shortly
after starting home, Capt. Gra
ham thought it wise to tie up
and wait for a qlearer way.
This all night delay was taken
in good part by everybody
aboard. Those who wished,
mnde tho effort to snatch forty
winks jiow and then while the
rest of the 83 tried to convince
them that sleep was unneces
sary. Knowing that the homo
folks would worry, bill Schroo-
der and Iloody Smith mado a
mile trip ncmss country with
lantern to reach a telephone.
They succeeded in reaching Dr.
Vincent, who thus became a
bureau of information to as
many pnrcnts as no couiu
reach. Capt. Graham declared
that novcr. dur ne his many
years of oxperienco on the
river, had ho carried a crowd
of finer spirit nnd courtesy.
Mrs. Wcimcr and Mrs. Har-
r.ington were welcome additions
on tho uaimcr trip, ban tncy

Tho results of the Rainier-
James John game was a score
of 042. The game, despite
the score, was no walk-away,
for our boys had to work for
what they got. The grand Btand
under the leadership of Yell
master Whitman, had their
share in the gallant victory.
The address by Dr. Pence on
Wednesday was a most stirring
one. He told of the work of the
Y. M. C. A., everywhere in con
nection with the troops and
made us feel that the work is
altogether necessary and worth
while. On Friday at special
assembly, Chas. Spackman
gave a report of the recent ad
dress made by the Y. M. C. A.
workers, Bartholemew and
Whitehair. Spackman is one
of tho two boys who were invit
ed as representatives from this
high school. Delbert Day, the
other, was absent because of ill
ness. The report brought home
to us the reality of the war as
nothing yet had succeeded in
doing. The high school alBo

Death of E. D. Hurlbert
E. D. Hurlbert, an old time
resident of St. Johns, passed
awav Saturday. November lUtn,
at his home, tiiti nttsuurg
street, after an illness of long
duration from cancer. Mr.
Hurlbert came to St. Johns
thirtv-ono years aco when St.
Johns was just a little hamlet
on the river bank. He was born
in the state of Indiana July
11th, 1842, and consequently
was more than 75 years of ace
at the time of his death. He
came to St. Johns from Neb
raska. Deceased was a veteran
nf the Civil War. and a mem
her of the first St. Johns City
Council. He is survived by his
widow. The funeral services
took nlace at the Adventist
church Sunday afternoon at
o'clock, of which church he had
held the office of Elder for many
vearB. The remains were in
terred in Columbia cemetery,
the St. Johns Undertaking Co.
in charge.

are rightly priced.

James John registered the
only official score of Wednes
day's foot bnll game in tho first
minute and a half of play, and
took tho match from Lincoln
High, G 0. Lincoln immed
iately protested the game,
which, under the circumstances,
was tho only way to clear up a
dispute over an unfortunate
occurrance in the final period.
With the score G 0 against
Lincoln, this tenm made an on-
side kick near tho James John
goal, and Rogowny, recovering
the ball, ran ten yards for a
touchdown. In the unexpected
ness of the play, Referee Stub
ling nccidently blew his whistle,
and tho James playors, think
ing that something was wrong
and the ball dead, mado no at
tempt to stop Rogowny, al
though It is highly problemati
cal whether they could have
done it under nny circum
Tho officials at first allowed
tho touchdown and lot Wright
arrange tho bail tor the goal
kick, which, if successfully
completed, meant that Lincoln
won tho game, 70. After
vehement protest by the Jtfmes
John conch and playors, the
official decided to disallow-the
touchdown, and put tho bull in
!ny on James John's ten yard
"It was an exceptionally un
tcferco Stub ng frankly
take all tho blame. Tho only
solution is for Lincoln to pro
test the game nnd explain the
circumstances to tho board."
James John swept Lincoln off
its feet at the start of the
game, rno uuiispnttcrs mauo
tho mistake of kicking off, nnd
onco tho East Sidcrs got the
bnll a 20 yard ond run by
Thompson and n 40 yard pass,
W. Schrocder to smith, put the
liny within a few inches of
Lincoln's gonl. Bill Schrocder
smashed across on a lino buck.
Schroedcr missed goal. From
then on Lincoln wns in no dan
ger of boing scored on nt any
timo during tho game. Two 10

mith and Toole, served to off
set the ynrdago mado during
the rest of the nor od by Lin
coln's straight football methods.
In the second quarter Lincoln
nut the bnll on James John's
yard line, but thero hit n stone
wall and lost on downs. Jnmes
John completed ono pass during
this poriod, schrocder to

Jonb's first pass nt tho start of
the finnl half, and returned the
ball five yards. James John
then held Lincoln for t'owns,
but tho former's first aggres

intercented by Rogowny und
netted Lincoln 25 yards. Wright
tried to kick a field goal trom
the 30 yard line, but Jumes

Excellent paper read by Mrs.
J. V. Scott at the W. C. T. U.
meeting recently, entitled
"Education in Play; Occupation
for Little Fingers:"
Everything that is amusing
and entertaining is too often
counted ns play by people who
have heard of play's import
ance, and who wish to give
their children every chance for
development nnd happiness.
Play is not by nny means amus
ing. Children often engage in
it with all seriousness and even ,
real anxiety. Play is the out-,
ward manifestation of a force
which is active within the child.
Instruction and entertainment
nro outside forces which from
the outside mukc certain im
pressions upon tho inner nature
of the child. Play is tho child's
attempt to experience real liv
ing, and it is to him usually
quite as serious an affair as
real life Ib to us. Instruction,
of course is neccssury to make
play successful und rigorous.
Education may be divided
into two halves. Play, on the
ono hand nnd instruction on
the other. In tho first ense the
child experiences und discovers
for himself; in the other, in
struction, ho lenrns tho result
of other people's experiences
nnd discoveries. These two
great departments of education
frequently intermingled. In
struction inspires and makes
possible more vigorous play,
while play should, and often
does crente the desiro for in
struction. Handwork has its placo in
education as well as in tho
dnily life. It should ever bo a
blessing und not a doom. It
may give in both places rich
returns, which should effect
tho child in the development
of his thought, of his emotional
lifo and of his character. The
results of tho work arc the
child's, but tho mother must
study how best to give tho full
joy of work to tho children. It
hns been saiu that during tno
first four yearn" of n child's
ife, it learns more thnn dur
ng nny succeeding four ycurs.
Therefore the' early domestic
training of the little ones is of
great importance.
As soon ns the baby cn walk,
or oven creep, it can be taught
to do littlo things, such as
picking up things tlvnt hnvo
nllon on tho floor, closing
doors, and carrying bbuiII ob
jects from ono room to another.
Tho first timo or two much
patienco will bo required; for
child of that tender nge docs
not understand rcadiJv. We
tear it often said, "Oh, but I
can do it so much quicker my
self." Yes, surely, wo enn
much quicker and bettor: but
where is tho child's domestic
trn ning to come in. if wo do all
tho household tasks ourselves?
Is it to bo postponed until he
has come to feel Unit all his
timo must be spent in play?
Tho child is naturally a work
er. no win destroy u no oops
not know how to make. Do
struction interests him ns much
us construction. He likes to see
'tli. ti.luKil irt pmitwl" finil It
matters little to him if tho
bllw " ,.iVi W UM.ti. ...v .v
gratifying of his desires is ad
vantnucous or not to the ar
ticlo in hand. Tho happiest child
is tho busy one, and to keep
him nt work he must be inter
csted in what ho is doing.
The habit of helpfulness is
most easily cultivated at an
earlv aire: for very young chil
dren are usually more willing to
help than are those who are
older. Therefore, it is essen
tia that they be taught to en
oy thoir work, nnd that the
mbit grow with them.
In order to got the best re
suits, it is necessary to cause
tho children, little or big, old or
young, to reel that tney are
helping because they want to,
and not because they are com
ne ed to do so. SucKostions
frequently bring better results
than commands. Tho wise and
patient mother has it in her
nower to create an interest in
tho daily work of tho household.
The children may be taught to
sweep, dust and sew, and it will
prove pieasureabie and pront-
able to them. It will den no harm
for little boys to learn to do
housework also, as there are
sure to bo times when such
knowledge will be of great bene
fit. Instead of putting every
thing out of tho children'
reach, it is better to put things
where they can reach thorn
easily. Have hooks set low,
so the shortest arms can reach
them. It will take much time
and patience to teach tho little
ones when to touch some things,
and when to refrain; but I be-
Following is a list of those
from St. Johns who have enlist
ed in Undo Sam's service and
who are now at tho different
training camps. We probably
overlooked some, as it is ex
ceedingly difficult to learn them
all. So if you know of any
overlooked, will you kindly fur
nish thoir names, so that they
may be added to St. Johns Roll

Had a Hard Chase
A cowboy who was "born
and raised" in the cow country
and had nover seen a sheep so
runs a story that thoy like to
tell in the Northwest went to
Toxas and hired himself to a
sheepman to herd sheep. He
went out on his pony the next
day to tako caro ot a big flock.
Well, how did you make out
today?" the sheepman asked
him whon ho came to supper
that evening. "Fair, I reckon,"
answered the cowboy, somo
what wearily, "but 1 Bhoro
did havo a timo with them
lambs, I never knowed n lamb
could run liko thnt. I reckon
if a grown up sheep tried, it
could outrun a cyclone."
"Lambs!" roared tho sheepman.
"There's no lambs in that flock!
What's the matter with you.'"
Yes, thero are Iambs." insist
ed the cowboy. "Thero are
three of 'em, nnd I nearly run
tho pony off his legs bofore I
jot 'em rounded up with tno
lord," "You're plumb crazy!"
snid tho sheepman. "If you'll
step out to the roundup with
me." said tho cowboy caimiy,
I'll alwiiu if nil Mmon Hir
lnmbs." Tho sheepman wont
with him. "There," said, tho
cowboy, pointing, "there's your
threo lambs!" Tho sheepman
looked, and then ho howled with
laughter. There lay three jack
rabbits with their flanks weakly
palpitating and their tongues
hanging out.
