Hard Work, With Everybody Help
ing, AVIII Mean Triumph In Great
Crusade All Expected to
Buy to Limit.
Hard work and every one helping
will enable Oregon to ko over the top
in the war savings satmp drive June
2S. The allotment for Oregon is $17,-
500,000. If everyone in the state would
buy $22 worth of stamps the trick
would be done, but to make the drive
a success, because there will be slack
ers and other people who will not come
up to the mark, it will be necessary
for those who can do so to pledge
themselves to the hilt and others must
buy the limit.
The third liberty loan has affected
the war savings stamps campaign, be
reause the bulk of the liberty bonds
of the third issue was absorbed by the
people of moderate means.
If 170.000 people of the 800.000
in Oregon will each pledge themselves
to take $100. maturity value, of the
stamps, the quota will be completed. The
"Limit Club" is looked. to for material
assistance in putting Oregon across
in the war savings stamps drive. The
Limit Club will consist of individuals
who have taken the limit of stamps,
this limit being $1000 maturity value,
and if bought in June, membership in
the Limit Club will cost $834. Provid
ing 14.000 men and women In Oregon
Join the Limit Club they can insure
tho success of the drive.
Clubs Everywhere Plan.
Formation of Limit Clubs will be
carried out in each county in the state
by the local committees and most of
these committees will arrange to have
the names of the Limit Club members
published in their local papers. Mem
bers of the Limit Club will be supplied
with special buttons which they will
have to pay for themselves, the cost
of the button being about 15 or 20
While the rule is that one person
should not possess more than $1000 of
matured value of stamps, there is
nothing to prevent wealthy men and
women from buying the limit for each
member of the family. This is ex
pected of the well-to-do people of
Oregon, for otherwise the bulk of the
stamps will have to be taken by those
who can less afford heavy investments
and it would be a reflection on the
Six Million County's Quota.
More than ' $6,000,000 will have to be
raised in Multnomah County. It is
possible, for $2,000,000 or $3,000,000
will be obtained through membership
in the Limit Club. A special organi
zation will probably be effected for the
express object of signing up members
in the Limit Club for this city, this
organization being something on the,
order of the flying squadrons which'
have distinguished themselves in ob
taining large contributions and sub
scriptions in other drives.
Reports from up-state indicate that
the Limit. Club will be well patronized
when the war savings stamp drive gets
under way and there will not be a
school district in Oregon but will en
deavor to have representatives in the
ARMY PLAN CONSIDERED
CITV TO STUDY TYPE OF" HOSPITALS
Extension to Woman's Detention Home
Near Troutdale Greatly Needed.
State to Be Asked to Help.
Extensions to the .woman's detention
home, now under construction near
Troutdale will be on the Army plan of
hospitals and barracks, if the opinion
expressed by 'the City Commissioners
yesterday Is followed out.
City Health Officer Parrish. Chief of
Police N. F. Johnson and Building In
spector Plummer will visit Vancouver
Barracks and Army cantonment today
to study the type of buildings erected
to care for the sick soldiers. If it is
possible, the plans used in the con
struction of the buildings will be pro
cured for use in future extensions to
The woman's detention home is built
in three units, one building to be used
as the administration building and two
others for the exclusive housing of pa
tients. Under the present plans 43 per
sons can be cared for, but this is inade
quate, as there are now 57 girls under
treatment at Kelly Butte.
A plan has been suggested by Chief
of Police Johnson for the building of
ten additional rooms in the adminis
tration building, but the council with
held its approval until the Army plan
of buildings can be thoroughly inves
tigated. The City Council has agreed to care
for all girls sent to Portland from out
side points throughout the state, and
the State Board of Health is to pay for
the treatment. Inasmuch as the build
ings now under erection are inadequate
to care for the woman afflicted with
social diseases and arrested in Port
land, the Commissioners have suggested
that the state furnish the money to
build additional barracks to house all
women received from outside points.
Officials of the Oregon Hygiene So
ciety will be asked by the council to
go before the State Board of Health
with such a proposition. The city has
no funds with which to make extensive
additions to the present plans.
FUEL CONSUMER WARNED
Buy Now, Is Advice of Oregon Fuel
"If you want to keep warm next
Winter, buy your fuel immediately,"
advises Miss Margaret B. Durning, ex
ecutive secretary of the Oregon Fuel
Administration, who returned Sunday
from Chicago, where she represented
the Oregon Administration at a. meet
ing of the International Railway Fuel
Association, held under the auspices of
the United States Fuel Administration
and the United States Railroad Admin
istration on May 23 and 24.
Miss Durning says that, from what
she heard at the meeting, there is very
grave danger of the fuel situation be
coming even more serious this Winter
than it was last unless the people pur
chase their coal whire there are enough
cars to take care of the transporta
tion of it.

U-BOATS STIR PEOPLE
DESCHUTES COUNTY INCREASES
SAVINGS STAMP QUOTA.
New Self-imposed Total of 9125,000, It
Is Declared, Will Be Subscribed
to the Lut Ceat.
Jumping its quota from 170,720 to
$125,000 the war savings stamps com
mittee of Deschutes County gives the
first concrete evidence of the effect
U-boats on the Atlantic Coast have had
on the people of Oregon.
Upon the heels of the news that the
Huns were sinking American steamers
near American ports, the committee of
Deschutes County met at Bend and
unanimously decided to raise the quota
of the county $55,000 more than the
county had been requested to subscribe.
People in Deschutes have bought
about $22,720 stamps and $48,000 of its
quota remains, but when the sub
marines began shooting up American
shtps In home waters it aroused the
spirit of the committee and the vol
untary increase was made. Further
more. Robert W. Sawyer, writing to the
state headquarters from Bend, declares
the new quota of $125,000 will be sub
scribed to the last cent.
When the word goes out of what Des
chutes has done, it is probable the ex
ample will be emulated by other coun
ties. One thing appears certain the
U-boats are proving the best publicity
for the war savings stamps campaign
that could be imagined, for they are
impressing the public with the fact
that the war is close at hand.
