BILLY SUNDAY HITS
HARD IN ADDRESS
"Us Guys Have to Crane Our
Necks to Look Up to Lin
; coin's Pedestal," He Says.
POINTED QUESTIONS PUT
Evangelist Starts to Talk to Ad Club
About Civic Righteousness,
and Soon Outdistances
' , , " 2 Stenographers.
It is always a refreshing- mental
diversion to hear Billy Sunday. Re
gardless of the merits of the doctrine
that he preaches or his manner of
preaching', anyone possessing the least
sense of humor is entertained on hear
The crowd thai filled the crystal dining-room
of the Benson Hotel wanted
to be entertained yesterday when. Billy
spoke before the Ad Club. They were.
It never has been hard for Billy
to jump from the most profound dis
course on the beauties of nature or the
glory of the Christian religion to an
outburst of Plans', all in the same
breath. He has this accomplishment
down finer than, ever this year.
The Sunday speech yesterday was
supposed to be on the subject of civic
righteousness or something of that
sort, but it covered a lot of other
Some of it was devoted to a eulogy
of Abraham Lincoln. "He was so big,
no noble, so manjy, so good, so kind,
so God-fearing," he said in speaking of
Lincoln, "that the rest of us guys have
to crane our necks every time we want
to look up to the pedestal where he
Auto Slang Is Used.
Billy has added automobile slang tJ
his repertoire, as for instance:. "Too
many of you fellows are traveling in
low gear all the time."
Two stenographers tried to take
down his rapid-fire talk, but gave up
in the attempt after he had spoken
the first 100 words.
But this speech was merely a pre
liminary to the one he is going to give
at the Ice Hippodrome next Tuesday
night, when he will talk against the
brewery bill that will be on the ballot
next November. The Ad Club has re
served a big block of seats for that
"The newspapers will have to be
printed on asbestos to handle that
speech," announced Billy.
; Before Sunday opened up, the crowd
extended an ovation to Billy Sullivan,
former catcher for the Chicago White
Sox, who is here scouting for the De
troit Americans; Ed Barnard, vice
president of the Cleveland Americans,
and Judge McCredie, of the Portland
Sullivan and . Sunday are old pals,
and fell on one another's necks when
they met at the dining-table.
William McMurray. general passen
ger agent for the Union Pacific sys
tem, had charge of the fireworks and
presented "Ma" Sunday with a copy of
S. C. Lancaster's book on the Columbia
piver Highway. She spoke briefly. He
introduced Billy by telling him to shoot
when he was ready. Ihen Billy shot.
Some of. his hardest hits were:
Some Kinds of Men Hit.
"All that some fellows are good for
Is to help make up a crowd. They
only furnish statistics for the census-taker.
"Others go around disguised. They
wear whiskers and . breeches to make
yoti think they are men.
"I like the chap that never fouls the
ball or strikes out; the chap who, with
three men on bases and the score three
to nothing against his team, will step
up to the place, take three balls and
two strikes and pound out a home run
without batting an eye.
"Don't be a mut, a piker, a molly
coddle, a curmudgeon, a four-flusher
or a jellyfish.
"Some -people only are carbuncles on
the body politic.
"Too many preachers are preaching
to wooden benches anil varnish.
"Better be a Napoleon of bootblacks
or an Alexander of chimney sweeps
than a lewyer without clients or a
preacher who can't get th ball over
"There ara a lot of first-class me
chanlcs rattling around in pulpits and
some mighty good preachers working
in machine shops.
"If you ever hand it to God in the
neck, you can be sure that he'll hand
it back to you, and then "you can thank
your stars that you are not a giraffe.
Bouquets Wanted Now.
"If you have any bouquets, give
them to me before I'm dead. I'd rather
have a funeral without a preacher.
coffin without a flower, a grave with
out -a tombstone, than to go through
life without love or kindness or sym
"Substract $50,000 and booze and fast
women from sora men and what have
you left, eh?
"What has Portland to be proud of
because you are living here? Answer
that question and see if it doesn't give
you a jolt."
"The wives of some men that I know
w-oi'ld be better off had they married a
phonofrraph or an automobile. The
phonograph could say a kind word to
them once in a while, and the automo
bile might take them out riding oc
casionally. "It is a dirty, cowardly trick to shoot
the arrows of envy into the man who
on upies the pedestal above you or the
lellow who is leading the procession.
. "Success consists in putting into life
more than you get out of it. How
many of you fellows are successful?"
Speaker Is Versatile.
Don't think that Billy Sunday is il
literate, or even not well educated. He
can quote from classics and talk about
scUncs, history, literature, the arts,
politics and current events, as readily
as he can pour forth a diatribe against
liquor, the devil t;nd the obstinate sin
ner. He did some of each yesterdav.
He wound up with a tribute to Hood
ISiver: "If the Lord ever opens up the
heavens and tells the angels to jump
down onto the finest spot on earth,
they'll land in the Hood River "Valley."
Then proceeded with this appeal for
the "old-time religion:"
"Be Christian men. Christians. Men
will respect you. women will admire
you, children will love you and God
will crown you with glory."

Use Cocoanut Oil
For Washing Hair
If you want- to keep your hair in
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries the
scalp, makes the hair brittle, and is
very harmful. Just plain mulsified co
coanut oil (which is pure and entirely
greaseless). is much 'better than the
most expensive soap or anything else
you can use for shampooing, as this
can't possibly Jnjure the hair.
Simi-ly moisten your hair with water
and rub it In. One or two teaspoon
fuls will make an abundance of rich,
creamy lather, and cleanses the hair
and scalp thoroughly. The lather
rinses out easily, and removes every
particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and ex
cessive oil. The hair dries quickly and
evenly, and It leaves it fine and silky,
bright, fluffy and easy to manage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil at
most any drugstore It is very cheap,
and a few ounces is enough to last
everyone in the family for months.
