Brother of Yankee General Ad
dresses War Workers.
"aea Heaven Is Ready to Negoti
ate W ith Hell, America Will Deal
With Huns," Says Speaker.
"When heaven pets ready to negoti
ate with hell, then will America be
ready to make peace -with Germany."
So declared James K. Pershing, a
brother of the man who directs the
American Army in France, who spoke
before the conference of United War
Workers in the assembly room of the
Multnomah Hotel yesterday afternoon.
His was a powerful appeal for the co
operation of all American agrencles to
aid the men in France to win the con
flict. He advocated the organization
of "do-without-it" clubs, saying that
by sacrifices made thus far, fully 75
per cent of the people in this country
io not realize the Kation is at war.
Maximum production of ' every com
modity was urged by the speaker, who
predicted a food famine in 1920 and
1921 unless steps are taken immediately
to provide for feeding America and her
allies after the war.
Large Production Urged.
"Don't get the idea," he cautioned,
"'that the war is over, for the American
boys will not stop fighting until they
run out of Germans." He paid a tribute
to American women, and expressed the
hope that they would be granted Na
tional suffrage for their part in the
great undertaking. He urges the con
fiscation of every German newspaper in
the United States; the burning of every
German textbook, and said he would
be one of 20,000,000 Americans to obli
gate himself never to purchase any
"Made in Germany" article, and thus
help in rebuilding the German commer
cial standing. Peace without victory,
he said, would be a colossal mistake.
Mr. Pershing prefaced his address
with a short history of General Per
shing, and received uproarious ap
plause when he declared that the
American soldiers will have all the
honor of winning the war, and that
General Pershing intends to see that
they get it.
All Aorthvrest Represented.
Yesterday's conference was attended

Drive Plans Considered.
Emphasis was placed upon the im

and denominations working as one in
serving the Army, and each of "the
6peakers showed clearly the necessity
for the various movements that are
designed to make the American sol
diers efficient, energetic fighters.
The physical, mental and moral ques
tions were taken up by authorities con
versant with each, and plans for the
consolidated drive were set in motion,
with enthusiasm prevalent on all sides.
Fully BOO delegates were in attend
ance at the meeting held yesterday aft
ernoon in Cathedral Hall, Seventeenth
and Couch streets, to consider plans for
the united war drive, and great enthu
siasm prevailed throughout. Arch

and Montana were represented, and
Judge Cavanaugh presided at the con
ference, introducing the speakers. His
Grace, Archbishop Christie, opened the
meeting with an appeal for the undi
vided 6upport of all Catholic organiza
tions, and the plan in detail was out
lined by J. Gannon, of New York, who
urged the immediate activity of all
Catholic organizations.
One of the most interesting; addresses
of the afternoon was that by Senator
Benson, of San Jose, who. told of his
varied experiences overseas, and Walter
Goss spoke in behalf of Victory Boys
and Girls. Bishop O'Dea. of Seattle,
was present at the conference, and
occupied a seat on the stage.
Dr. Crockett Is Speaker.
At the close of the discussion, reso
lutions were adopted, urging every or
ganization affiliated with the Catholic
Church to lend its hearty support to the
united war drive, scheduled for the
week of November 11, and copies of the
resolution are to be circulated broad
cast through the four states.
Miss Dr. Crockett, who recently re
turned from France, was among the
speakers yesterday who was able to
give the delegates a clear insight into
what the women of America are accom
plishing. She is attached to the Y. M.
C. A. overseas service, and gave graphic
word pictures of the hardships being
gone through by men and women alike
in the struggle to preserve democracy
Miss Crockett spoke before the Univer
sity Club yesterday, also.

Men With Millions Serve in
Campus Kitchen.
Oregon's Prominent Men Get Taste
of Real Army Life.
Oct. 10. (Special.) "This Army
life ain't so bad, y know, when you
have millionaires and prominent states
men handing out the chow."
"What d' ye mean, millionaires?
Those fellows on kitchen police today?
Well, what do you know about that?"
All of which gives the gist of sev
eral bits of conversation flying about
the big, new cafeteria in Friendly Hall,
on the campus, where the men of the
Oregon state officers' training camp
are assembling for mess these days.
For some prominent men were on
kitchen police ,duty that day. Promi
nent among the waiters who kept the
long serpent line moving was Harry
L. Corbett, Portland capitalist.
H. H. Cloutier, late manager of the
Multnomah Hotel, in Portland, was in
the group with Mr. Corbett. Others
who did their bit among the plates and
kettles were State Senator Julien Hur
ley, of Malheur County, and Plowden
Stott (Stanford, '07). former noted ath
lete, now Portland lawyer.
More than 250 men are enrolled in
the officers' training camp, and they
take their turns at keeping the home
fires burning by carrying trays, peeling
potatoes, clearing tables and otherwise
helping keep the formidable aggrega
tion of militant appetites in check.

"I was sick for six months and in bed
for ten weeks. I doctored faithfully
for two months and kept getting worse
and finally had a stroke of paralysis
which affected my right leg and arm
and speech. X could not talk for two
weeks and I had no use whatever of
my leg and arm. I was very nervous.
My people thought I would never bo
anything but a helpless cripple.
"It was through my father that I
commenced taking Hr. Williams' Fink
Pills. He was discouraged and when
he read about the pills he decided to
have me try them. I could soon see
a change and gave the remedy a
thorough trial. The numbness in my
leg disappeared and after a time I
could walk. I grew stronger and

for Drt Williams' Pink Pills I would
still be a helpless cripple."
