Entertainment Is Needed for
Soldiers, Burton 0. Green
ing Reports. '
l-'ate of War Shuts Men Into Forests
WIio AVould Much Rather Be
Shooting Germans Public
Asked to Help.
The eyes of the world are on Port
land as the spruce center and if she is
to uphold her good reputation in war
activities, her citizens must do a great
deal to make the boys in the spruce
camps happy and comfortable.
The work of the spruce division Js
probably the most disagreeable of any
of the various branches of service in
the Army and it furnishes the members
of that division the most time to them
selves with the least opportunity to
secure wholesome recreation. For this
reason they have a great deal of time
in which to do nothing but brood over
their troubles and the fact that they
are so far from a point where they can
get a shot at a German. They little
realize that the work they are doing is
quite as valuable toward winning the
war as that which they could do were
they ""Somewhere in France."
Various Camps Visited.
Information to this effect was given
Friday by Burton O. Greening, of the
war camp community service for the
War and Navy Department Commis
sions on training camp activities, with
offices at 204 Northwestern Bank
building, who has recently returned
from a tour of the spruce camps in the
vicinity of Newport, Toledo and Sea
side, Oregon, where he has gained first
hand information regarding the feel
ings and life of the boys who consider
themselves unfortunate because they
are not in the trenches.
After the trip, Mr. Browning con
cluded that in order to give the boys
in the spruce camps a square deal, com
mittees should be organized for the
purpose among civilians and Army of
ficers, and so the following commit
tees were formed: On commercial re
lations or arbitration of grievances, to
provide for a fair deal on all transac
tions between men and officers of
camps and citizens and tradesmen of
the city: on education, to furnish night
classes in higher mathematics and lan
guages; on fraternal organizations, to
provide socials and smokers for the
brothers and other groups of soldiers to
be given by the Masons, Elks, Knights
of Columbus, Rotarians, etc.; on women
and girls, to organize the women and
girls of the city into patriotic clubs to
keep them occupied in patriotic work;
on special celebrations or entertain
ment, for the Fourth of July, Decora
tion day, community singing, band con
certs and Sunday entertainment to be
given at the camps and in the neigh
boring cities; clubhouse committee,
providing suitable locations in down
town districts with furnishings such as
pool tables, pianos, phonographs,
lounges and comfort chairs, writing
desks and literature, a place for en
listed men only; on public amusement,
commercial parks and playgrounds,
providing facilities and leadership for
baseball, swimming, track meets, etc.;
on commercial amusement, commercial
dancehalls, picture shows, circuses, etc.;
providing well-regulated dances in
private homes and public places; on
church co-operation, to make an or
ganized effort to get the soldiers to
attend church services, making them
feel that some . church is their church
while in the community, furnishing
speakers for religious services at
camps, having soldiers entertained at
socials, etc.; on publicity; on finance.
to raise funds, approve requisitions for
the buying of goods and to audit ac
Proper Entertainment Lacking.
A great deal of this work has al
ready been accomplished in the towns
surrounding the camps near the sea
shore, but sufficient entertainment for
the members of the spruce division is
still lacking. Speakers, entertainers,
musicians or anyone who thinks he or
she can provide entertainment for the
soldiers is urged to communicate with
Mr. Greening. Newport and the beach
resorts near there are excellent places
to spend a Summer vacation.
The work which, the men in the
spruce camps willingly accomplish is
almost as disagreeable as it is neces
sary. Some of the workers are drafted
men and others volunteers, who have
been assigned to the woods at the
pleasure of Uncle Sam rather than of
their own accord. About 25 per cent
of them are thoroughly unaccustomed
to the work, having been, before their
enlistments, clerks or desk men.
They are engaged in buildingroads
and railways into the woods and in
harvesting the-spruce crop. They have
o date constructed 30 miles - of rail
road from Toledo and South Beach
into the woods and connecting with the
main line at Toledo. The spruce is
shipped to Vancouver, Wash., where it
is cut into the desired sizes for air
plane construction at the Government
cut-up plant there.
Men Need Cheering . l".
The fact that the men feel . down
hearted because they are not actively
fighting and because they are also cut
off from pleasures and the most de
sired kinds of recreation is clearly
shown by a sign which Mr. Greening
says he saw near the end of an isolated
street in one of the camps. It read,
"Portland, this way, 1000 miles." An
other sign reading, "Dance Hall." was
found on the wall of a real estate office
building. The streets of the camp are
named after streets in Portland, the
main street being called Broadway.
At the table where Mr. Greening was
treated to a "delicious" meal he was
served by a 32d-degree Mason.
The delicious meal, which is an
example of what the men in the camps
arc receiving daily, consisted of the
following delicacies: Soup, meat -(hash
and beefj. salad, potatoes, string beans,
pie, cake, preserves. French toast and
cookies. . ... .
Athletics form an important part of
the little play which the men enjoy.
At one camp, the Warren Spruce Com
pany has hired Professor Robert Krohn
to act as athletic director and conduct
classes in gymnastics among the men.
All kinds of athletic equipment is avail
able by the men,-and they make fre
quent use of it. Each camp has a
phonograph and several have pianos.
According to plans of Colonel Disque,
of the spruce division, . there will be
between 3000 and 4000 men in -the
spruce camps in the vicinity of New
port in the near future.
Mehama Woman Traced Aneeatrr to
Peasants of Basle, Switzerland.
Mr. Stoat Still Living.
Mrs. Lewis Stout died June 18 at her
home in Mehama, Marion County, Or.,
at the age of 73 years. She was born
. f
1 fr So
Mrs. Lewis btout.
in Des Moines County, la., January 14,
1845, descended from a family of pio
neers who trace their lineage through
a long line of descendants to the Swiss
peasants of Basle.
Mrs. Stout was the fourth child of a
family of 11, five boys and six girls,
seven of whom are still living. In
1853 she came to Oregon with ' her
parents, spending the first Winter at
Milwaukle. During the following Sum
mer they moved to Douglas County,
near Oakland. On October 26. 1865,
Mrs. Stout was united in marriage to
Lewis Stout, who had arrived in Ore
gon the previous year, and whose
father, Ephraim Stout, had preceded
him nine years, being one of those
who first staked their fortunes with
Marcus Whitman in 1843 on the first
trip across the continent by wagon.
Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Stout first set
tled on the banks of the Santiam River,
about three miles west of Mehama,
where Ephraim Stout and his son had
taken their first donation land claims.
Stout mountain, situated on this claim,
is a landmark.
For the past three years Mrs. Stout
has been in poor health. Her life has
been one of service and she has taken
a keen interest in the affairs of the
time. In addition to an aged husband,
she is survived by eight children, 25
grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Many times the kidneys were to blame.
If we wish to prevent old age coming
en too soon, or if we want to increase
onr chances for a long life, Dr. Pierce
of the Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N.Y.,
says that you should drink plenty of
'water daily between meals. Then pro
core at your nearest drug store, Anurio
(doable strength). This "An n-ric"
drives the uric acid oat and cores back
ache and rheumatism.
If we wish to keep our kidneys in the
best condition a diet of milk and vege
tables, with only little meat once a day,
1b the most suitable. Drink plenty of
pure water, take An uric three times a
day for a month.
Send Dr. Pierce ten cents for trial

potent than lithia, eliminates uric acid
as hot water melts sugar. A short

food administration headquarters. Study
of the instructions to dealers will make
every user familiar with the limitations
