Between Former Foes.
To raise money, -mainly through the
public schools of the country, to build
memorial halls upon the battlefields of
Gettysburg and Chickamauga, the
Gettysburg-Chickamauga Peace Me
morial Halls Association has been or
ganized in Portland. Colonel Lewis C.
Oarrigus is its president, Lynn B.
Coovert, secretary and H. C. Wortman,
It is the Intention of the association
to raise from 15000 to J1000 In this
state to carry on the Nation-wide
campaign for raising the memorial
money, and the first contributor to the
lund is H. C. Wortman who has sub
scribed $100.
In July, 1913, at the great fraternal
union of the Blue and Gray at Gettys
burg, the 12,000 ex-Confederate soldiers
assembled there adopted resolutions
expressing a desire to erect peace me
morials which should stand for Ameri
. can brotherhood. The resolutions were
written by Colonel Garrigus, one of
Oregon's two representatives.
Union Veterans Take Up Idea.
Later Colonel Andrew Cowan, a promi
nent ex-Federal Army officer and presi
dent of the Society of the Army of the
Potomac, strongly advocated the peace
memorial suggestion. An organization
followed called the Gettysburg Peace
Memorial Association, Its membership
containing ex-Federal and ex-Confederate
soldiers In almost equal numbers,
supposed to include the most prominent
Jiving members of each army.
The avowed object of the association
"was to obtain an appropriation from
Congress with which to build the me
morial. A bill for that purpose was
Introduced by Representative Shirley.
of Kentucky, but Congress never acted
upon It.
Colonel Garrigus, one of the vice
presidents of the association, did not
want to see the matter dropped, so he
was instrumental in the formation of
the local organization.

Reed College Head Contends That
Both Combatants Always Are
I Worse Off After Strife.
A series of potent facts relating to
National policies of war and peace
were pointed out by Dr. William
Trufant Foster, president of Reed Col
lege, in an address delivered Friday
night before an audience at Turn Hall.
X'ourth and Tamhill streets.
The causes leading to wars In the
past, compared with the results
achieved by the same wars, formed an
essential part of the argument. It being
contended that both combatants are
worse off after settling their differ
ences by force.
"Who won the Russo-Japanese War?"
asked Dr. Foster. "The answer depends
upon what you mean by "win. Two
months after the war was over, the
Japanese people were paying 30 per
cent taxes to pay for the war. This
means thatvthey gave three out of
every ten hours' labor to settle for this
war and to prepare for future wars.
"A nation cannot win financial pres
tige by winning battles. Commercial
y speaking, it is impossible to win in
a war. If Germany should capture
London. Paris and St. Petersburg and
take all of the gold found there, she
would not have enough to pay the cost
of the present war.

Just All
A Real Farm
The "UNIVERSAL" converts any Ford or other car
into s clean-cut, practical light tractor. 1500 pounds
of wrought and cast steel traction wheels, gear,
braces and hitch, clamped to your auto chassis. You
plow and haul with, it as easy as you drive your car.
Why Two in One?
If you can't afford an extra auto chassis, then buy
a "UNIVERSAL" and have a perfect tractor and
an auto both. If you can't afford the two, then use
your auto full time and a "UNIVERSAL" full time.
Don't have either one standing; idle in a shed. "Two
in one" means more tractors for the man of mod
est capital.
Plows Six to Eight
Acres a Day
According to soil. Pull3 a four to six-horse load;
pulls two bottom plows six inches deep and has
reserve. It is a wonder for pulling spreaders, har
rows, mowers, drills, binders, trucks, and its light
weight, broad tractor wheel bearing make it an in
comparable equipment for cultivating.
Body Should Be Off
The "UNIVERSAL" is a clean-cut tractor. Body
of car is removed; no need for body with the "UNI
VERSAL." Special seat provided with equipment.
The "UNIVERSAL" is a farm implement, pure
and simple. - '

hitching frame; all rolled steel wheel treads and
spokes. Internal gear and all parts easily replaced

perior in action. It is absolutely the only practical tractor of
its kind in the market, and it is a super-tractor compared
with any other light tractor.

in reducing the gear, giving high power, less

which has powerful tubular steel
strain and weight axle.
