Workers From All Over State
to Meet in Portland.
Vm of National and Interna
tional Distinction Will Address
Convention la Interest of.
Patriotic Undcavor.
TCar workers from err section of
the stats will meet In Portland on May
23 and 21 at ths first Oregon war con
ference, which is to be held nnder ths
auspices of ths Stats Council of De
The meetlns" Is befits; arrang-ed at ths
Instance of ths Federal Government
and a number of speakers of National
and International fame will be In Port
land to address ths larger assemblage.
Ths two-day convention Is one of a
series of big ret-together meetings
being held In all parts of ths United
States from JJalne to California and
from Tampa to Seattle.
Mayor Baker has postponed ths con
ference of Oregon Mayors and Ctty At
torneys to May 23 and 21 from ths orig
inal dates of May 2 and I. In order that
all city officials In the stats may have
an opportunity of attending both meet
ings without making; two tripa to ths
Defeaas Chairmen Attend.
Ths meetings will bs attended by
every county chairman of the county
council of defense, by ths county rep
resentatives of every war activity.
Ths purpose of the gathering is to
achieve a triple object:
First, it will bring together ths war
workers of the stats for Information
and mutual helpfulness and inspiration
exactly aa the workers of a political
party in peace times are Inspired by a
get-together spirit by a convention, so
ths war conference will stimulate every
county representative to new efforts.
Second, the conference will prove
means of strengthening ths state coun
cil organisation throughout ths state.
Thus far no stats conferences have
been held, according to reports from
Washington. without bringing the
counties closer together, without sham
ing into renewed activities those coun
ties that were lagging and without
spurring on to sven greater efforts and
a better co-ordination with the state
councils those already playing a big
part In stste defense work.
Third, the war conference will pave
the way for a state-wide speaking cam
paign planned for Oregon.
tVlUn Evtneea Interest.
Jfot only baa ths war conference ths
support of administration leaders, but
the Interest in the conferences by
President Wilson has been evinced by
personal messagea sent by the Presi
dent to no less than 14 conferences.
The committee on public Information
and the Council of National Defense
first proposed the war conference plan
last November to a group of Eastern
The first actual conference was held
In Klchmond. Vs.. on December 6. South
Carolina and Indiana followed shortly.
and later In Iecember Pennsylvania
and Iowa followed with the plan carried
to tremendous success.
Five more states went over the top
In January and three more in February,
while In March the South almost with
out exception swung Into line.
Arrangements are being made to hold
war conferences in every Pacific Coast
atate. under the ausplcea of the State
Councils of Defense.

In the second liberty loan drive about
$11,000 was subscribed in this district.
In the present campaign this amount
has been far overreached. The quota

These state councils of defense of
ths West are accustomed to going at
their work In a vigoroua way. and of
ficials In Washington expect to see
them carry through the war confer

determination and resolution that haa
characterised ail their undertakings.
The rivalry Is already keen as to
which state will make Its war confer

Forestry Employes Slabs Good Soldiers

Fellewed by Many of Thus.
District Forester George H- Cecil, of
Portland, haa compiled a directory giv
ing the mall addresses of Forest 8erv!ce
men Irom this district who are In the
Army or Navy and has sent a copy to
all forest officers in ths district, with
the sugsestlon thst they write letters
to their friends st the front.
According to this directory. 1 men
tnt from the District Forester's of
fice, 11 from the Olympic National For
est. 10 each from the Oregon and Sno-
oualmle forests, eight each from the
Washington and Wenatchee for
ets. six from the Colvtlle, five
each from the Rainier and Whit

Cascade. Slualaw and L'matllla: two
esch from the Crater. Ml nam. Santlam,
I'mpqua and Okanogan, and one each
from the Malheur, bisklyou. Wallows
an 1 Wenaha.
The positions formerly occupied by
these men In the Forest Service range
from district forester to messenger. A
larse proportion of them were forest
rangers and forest guards, profession'
slly trained foresters and men from
nearly every line of Forest Service
work are included In the roster. It Is
td that field men of the Forest Serv
Ice are specially adapted to the life of
a soldier because of their being accus
tomed to rugged outdoor life.
Th forest regiments, the 10th and
to Engineers, have SO of the men from
thlsaUistrtct: 20 more are In the Signal
Corps. Nearly all branches of the mil
itary service have attracted the men
who left the Foreet Service to do their
part In making the world a fit ,place
to live In.

To this may be added, as directly ac

This timber is used In all kinds of

200 Ships to Be Turned Out.
-The Columbia River district has built
or Is building ships of the total valu
of J175.000.000, of which more than half
are of fir, and la also supplying about
60.000.000 feet of large timbers to At
lantic and Gulf Coast shipyards.
Before the close of this year the dla
trlct will probably have produced 200
ships of wood or steel for use In car
rying and supplying ths Army and
feeding the allies.
Thia country s only great stand of
spruce timber, which has proved' best
for aircraft, ia in Oregon and Wash

Is tributary to the Colun.bla River or
to other Oregon ports. It Is now bein
supplied to the Government and the
allies at the rate of more than 10,

wheat, 20,000,000 bushels of oats and
12.500,000 bushels of barley.
Complete totals for that region alon

To arrive at the total for the en

than doubled. Wool production in tne
Columbia basin totals 3S.000.000 pounds.
The mineral output of Oregon alon
Is JS, 500.000. comprising gold, silver.

Kootenai district of British Columbia
and the vast copper product of Butte,
