World Democracy. . "
Bohemians by nativity and Americans
by naturalization are among the most
patriotic supporters of the Government
In the war for democracy. In the list
of volunteers furnished the different
branches of the military service from
- Oregon are the names of scores of Bo
hemian families. The heads of numbers
of - these households came from the
nativity of their, Slavic people to the
land of the free for material better
ment, and also of religious and political
freedom they did not possess there.
They belong: to one division of immi
grants from Central Europe, who have
shown unqualified appreciation of
democratic government and equal op
portunity offered to them in the United
States by their works.
Yesterday two men prominent in the
councils of their countrymen In Ore
gon called at the Chamber of Commerce
to have their services and a share of
their possessions turned over to the
Red Cross through President H. L.
Corbett, of the Oregon Red Cross.
Farmeri Would Give All.
B. T. Hnisda, 55 years of age, a prom
inent farmer of the Willamette Valley,
offers half of all the worldly property
he possesses to the Red Cross and the
Bohemian Alliance, and offers to in
vest the other half in liberty bonds
and war savings stamps to provide an
income 'for his wife, and announces
lils intention to leave for France May
30 to serve in whatever capacity hej
can to defeat the Germans.
He was accompanied by V. Cladek, of
Portland, 64 years of age, owning prop
erty in this city, and also in the val
ley, who also will go to France if he
can have any part in the great war.
"We have urged the young men to
go, have traveled over the West ap
pealing to them to get into the serv
ice," said the aged warrlorj. "They
have gone by the thousands. We must
do our part. If it is our all, well and
good. Bohemians must stand in this
fight to the finish by the side of the
allies. We have many years against
us, but we know how to fight and to
", Cook's Job Acceptable.
"If nothing but a cook's job is the
best to be had on-the front, that will
be taken, but something more effective
will develop. This is not a time to
hesitate about, giving or going. All
we have stood for as a race is in the
balance, and we will not be found want
ing." Hnisda owns 640 acres of land at
Willamina. - Of this 130 acres are
cleared and valuable for agriculture.
On the land is 15,000.000 feet of timber
and a sawmill of 25,000 feet dally ca

property at its value Hnisda will give
25 per cent of the total receipts to the
Bohemian Alliance and another 25 per
cent to the Red Cross. The remaining
60 per cent he will put In liberty bonds

If no one will buy the property on
this basis, he offers to the Red Cross
the sawmill, all standing: timber and
150,000 feet of lumber that has been
