THE work of moulding a campaign
organization to raise $100,000 for
the Christie Home for Orphan
Girls is over. During the past four
weeks some of the busiest men in the
ity have been spending1 hours of their
time to further the work of the cam
paign. The results of their efforts are
an enthusiastic force of workers and
a public acquainted with the work done
by the Christie Home in the past and
the urgent- need of additional build
ings. The initial campaign for large dona
tions, which Is in charge of the execu
tive and advisory committees, will be
gin tomorrow morning under the su
pervision of J. C. English. This initial
Bolicitation of funds will close with
the banquet at the Portland Hotel,, on
the night of December 4.
The banquet in charge of Mrs. "W. E.
Ooman and her assistants, Mrs. T. H.
McAllis. Mrs. J. Alex Mayer, Mrs. Frank
Iooiy, Mrs. Natt McDougall and Mrs.
Kelix Isherwood, will be the biggest
social event of the campaign. Addresses
will be given by the most prominent
speakers of the state. Mrs. Coman
promises a treat in musical numbers to
be rendered by artists.
On the morning after the banquet
the army of workers under the general
direction of John E. Cronan will take
the field for tho collection of the
smaller donations. .The whole city win
be completely canvassed in this whirl
wind campaign of two weeks duration.
Daily luncheon will be served at the
Portland Hotel for all campaign
workers as guests of the general com
mittee. The reports from the various
teams will be given each day at the

meeting of captains and workers will

In answer to many questions in re
pard to Christie Home asked by the
visitors at headquarters the campaign
committee has prepared the following:
Ts Christie Horn a purely Catholic Insti
tution? Are non-Catholic children accepted?
Christie Home Is conducted by the Sister
of the Holy Names, a religious order of the
Catholic Church. Religion forms no barrier
to entrance at the Christie Home for any
child, nor does It make the slightest dif
ference in the care and treatment received.
la the child's physical welfare regarded?
re physicians free to inspect the home?
The children at Christie Home are so
cared for that a professional visit from a
doctor is rarely necessary, but any. phy
sician Is welcome at the home at any time.
What precautions are taken against con
Every new child coming to the home la
put In quarters . separate from the other
children until examination shows that he is
in perfect physical condition.
Are these children sent away if they are
found to have any diseases?
No; they are sent to the hosplttal or
placed in Christie Home's1 Isolated infirmary,
as the case demands, until it Is deemed per
fectly safe for them, to mingle with, the
How old are the children at the Christie
Girls received at Christie Home may be
between the ages of 4 and 16; the average
age is between 8 and 10 years.
How long may they stay?
A girl entering the Christie Home, unless
removed by relative. Is kept at the home
until she has received a training which ren
ders her competent to care for herself.
Does the state help support the orphans
at the Christie Home?
For children entirely dependent of all sup
port the state pays $S per month each. But
this small amount, which, as Dr. C. S. White
lays, anyone will pay without a word as
"dead storage" on an automobile, goes a
very little way in the support of a real live
child. Since so little aid can be given by
the state It is positively necessary that
help be obtained from the public.

The conservatory chapel was a bower
of flowers. Roses vied with carnations
and both bloomed beside huge white
chrysanthemums and cheerful asters.
When the people came and the pews
were filled with old friends and young,
the organ began behind the screening
A voice caught up the hymn, gently
and carried it through the flowers to
every nook: of the chapel "Abide With
Me." So softly did, It fall upon the
listeners that they almost forgot. Yet,
as the song passed, they remembered,
these many men and women who met
yesterday afternoon to reverence the
memory of Leander H. Wells, for 81
years a newspaperman in the service
In that much of Mr. Wells' life was
spent for the East Side, where everyone
bad long regarded him with apprecia
tive affection, it was fitting that the
first testimonial be paid by an officer
of the Eat Side Business Men s Club,
and L. M. Lepper, vice-president of the
organization, spoke of the heavy debt
due to the memory of the "East Side
Unselfish Service Lauded.
"There are times when we realize
the inadequacy of language," said Mr.
Lepper, "and moments when words will
not express the feelings that lie close
to the heart"
Quite simply 'he recounted the un
selfish service of the man who took up
his task "when the East Side was
nothing but pasture land," and laid it
down on a day when the same district
was a large and prosperous portion of
a great city.
Mr. Wells, he said, took pride In

"He has "covered" it arduously far
Into the night, at times.'" the speaker
reminded them and told of the will
with which Mr. Wells carried on his
work as a reporter. "O, the dreamers
have the wishes, but the workers have
the will." he quoted. "Mr. Wells was
one of the workers." he declared, "and
thus we of the Bast Side Business Men's

a parting word with you. His monu
ment will not merely be one of endur

Churchman Faym Tribute.
Each Sunday, since churches first
thrust their spires above the East Side,
It had been Mr. Wells custom to report
the sermons. It was in that manner,
said Dr. Arthur F. Bishop, of the Cen
tral Presbyterian Church, that they
met, recently when Dr. Bishop first as
sumed the pastorate. He told of the
veteran reporter's review of that ser
mon in the ensuing issue of The Ore
gonian, of its grasp of fact and gen
erous sympathy for the work of the
"Mr. Wells, in putting high estem
and estimation on the work of the
church, has written himself down in
our hearts and in the history of this
community, as a man worth while," de
clared Dr. Bishop.
Dr. Samuel Worcester, of the New
Church Society, personal pastor of Mr.
Wells, spoke comfortingly and with the
faith that all things are well.
"Friends, there is no death, except
death of sin," began Dr. Worcester.
"That which we are accustomed to call
death is but transition. It Is but the
passing of the spirit from the life of
this world to the life of the spirit
world. Man does not and cannot, die,
This is but the birthday of our friend
in the continued life of the spirit world
into which he has entered. How do I
know? I know this on the authority
of God's word. ... Let us Bee what
happened to our friend. He apparently
fell asleep. So there is nothing to fear.
He has awakened."
