"Let us bomb the submarines of
Kalserism, of petty jealousy, of per
sonal ambition, of selfishness, and let
us have a dominant sense of sacrifice
and service."
This message, an extract from, the
eerraon-addrees of the Right Rev.
William Ford Nichols, given at the
opening: session of the thirtieth annual
convention of the Episcopal churches
of the diocese of Oregon, formed the
keynote that inspired the day's meet
ing'. The convention will continue
throughout today and the sessions will
fee in St. Stephen's Pro-Cathedral,
vhene yesterday's meetings were held.
A notable fact of the present gather
ing, is the presence of three bishops,
the Right Rev. Walter Taylor Sumner,
of Oregon; the Right Rev. William
Ford Nichols, of California, and the
Xight Rev. Adam de Render, lord
bishop of New Westminster and
Xieutenant-Colonel of the Canadian
Bishop Klebol', Spurs Clergy.
Bishop Nichols urged the clergy to
?ret away fr-cm t'ae fireside, the com
fortable slippers and the interesting
book and get out into the parish and
know the people and help them, and
knock out the heresy that Episco
palian clergymen aren't made to be
Bishop Sumner's charge to the clergy
of the diocese and his annual report
occupied a place of importance in the
day's programme. The strongest plea
of the bishop and the subject of dis
cussion of the afternoon by Bishops
Nichols and De Render -was in favor
of religious education, enlarging the
irope of the Sunday schools and en
couraging young men to study for
holy orders.
llrfgrt an Flaaaeee Give.
Bishop Sumner reported for the va
rious funds and branches of wonk that
come under his supervision. "The
time has come," he said, "when there
is no more cash on hand." Sugges
tion was made that the temporary
emergency be met by an assessment on
the parishes.
Praise was given to the manage
ment of the Oregon Churchman, the
Good Samaritan Hospital and St.
Helen's Hall, all of which are pros
pering. The Churchman is free from
debt, the hospital is doing about 20
to 25 per cent of its work for the
worthy poor, and the school has 188
students, as against 77 of about four
years ago.
A special tribute of . appreciation
was given oy sisnop sumner 10 jjean
Horsfall. of Bandon. one of the oldest
and "most faithful men in the clergy,"
the bishop said,
lilshop Scott Troprrty Deteriorating.
Reference was made to the condi
tion of securities of the former Bishop
Scott school funds. The bishop stated
that the lease on the property on
Trinity Place Is not being met by
those who made it. and that the prop
erty in Yamhill County is in a fast
deteriorating condition, having been
badly constructed. He stated that "it
is a question in the minds of some
whether it is honestly constructed."
"I am sure that nothing has been
left undone that could be done to save
out of the wreck of this deplorable
fiasco some assets to the diocese." said
the bishop.
. Rev. John D. Rice was elected sec
retary of the diocese, and Rev. T. F.
r.owen. assistant secretary. The even
ing programme was devoted to & dis
cussion and study of missions.
At 1 o'clock the women of St.
Etephen's served an Oregon luncheon
in honor of the visiting clergy and
delegates. At the head of the table
was placed a bowl of fleur de lis be
fore Bishop de Pencier, some Cali
fornia poppies before Bishop Nichols,
and some Oregon roses before Bishop
nnd Mrs. Sumner. Roses and peonies
adorned the other tables.
Mrs. Sumner took the visiting
lshops for a motor drive during the
early afternoon, and tonight Bishop
and Mrs. Sumner will entertain for
them at & reception at Blshopcroft.
Today the election will be an in
teresting feature. Members for the
e-tanding committee and the important
boa.rds will be chosen. The first com
munion service will be at 7:30 A. M.
and the second at 9:30 A. M. The pro
gramme of the con'entlon will open
t 10 o'clock.
Lively Discussion Kxpected.
Woman's suffrage in church affairs
will come up for discussion and as a
special order of business at this morn
ing's opening session of the con
vention and a lively exchange of
pinions is anticipated. In his ad
axess Bishop Sumner referred to the
small percentage of women who are
doing church work, saying that but 228
of the 2788 women communicants of
the diocese regularly attended auxiliary
Bishop Nichols spoke on the plan for
forming a House of Churchwomen and
praised women's part in church jvork.
This morning definite action will be
taken regarding the preparation of a
canon governing the status of woman
in the church.
Last night the climax of the meeting
was the raising of a substantial sum
for war work in the diocese of Oregon.

Tactical Blunder Charged.
"I think that the order to keep Gen

Influential Democratic Senator, "is a
Berious tactical blunder. General Wood
is the most popular officer in the Army,
and if for no other reason, this move
is a blunder from a purely phycholog

among the people and is bad for the
general morale of the country."

Every Aid Pledged to Food Admin

Not to Be Tolerated by
Higher Wage Offers.
SEATTLE, Wash.. May 2S. (Special.)
A spirit of deep patriotism prevailed
at the Joint session of the hotelmen of
Washington and Oregon who met In
Joint conference at the Washington
Annex today. It was the spirit of "win
the war," which has come home forcibly
to every big enterprise In the country.
While the Bonifaces talked tourist
trade and exchanged pleasantries about
the attractiveness of the various cities
in Washington and Oregon, they real
ized the big problem of hotelmen
throughout the United States and bow

demands of labor as it may be exacted
by Federal act from their male em
Greater Saving Keeeasary.
Resolutions were unanimously adopt
ed to do anything that the Federal.
military or civil authorities may deem
expedient, also to assist in every way
possible conservation which may be
required by the Federal food act. Al
though much has been done already in
the way of substitutes in foods, tbe
hotelmen believe that a still greater
saving must be made.
The question of charging 10 cents
for baggage "In and out" was brought
up and referred to a committee for
future report. It was also agreed that
there shall be no stealing of male
and female belp from one hotel by
another by luring wages. Exception,
however, was made aa to clerks.
