- A proposal to establish two more
tormil schools in Oregon, one in th
eastern part of the state and the othei
fn the western, will be on the Novem
ler S election ballot. Representatives
of The Dalles, Pendleton, Baker and
La Grande met in La Grande Friday In
the interests of a normal school for
Eastern Oregon. After the meeting
the following statement, signed by
J. J. Carr. representing Union County
J. H. Gwlnn, Umatilla County; Walter

Rorick. Wasco County, was Issued:
- "A survey of the school situation
discloses that no Institution of higher
learning or for the training of teach
era exists in the great territory east o
the mountains. Kegardless of where
the normal school will be built, all the
people interested, have made it plain
that sectionalism does not govern the
question as to whether a normal school
hould be established in Eastern Ore

- The future welfare of the boys and
girls of this great section should be
the controlling force that should gov
ern the voters in making their choice.
To a man with a family living In East
rn Oregon it Is an individual question
Shall my children have properly trained
teachers when they start out to get
their education to use during the bal
ance of their lives? Will my children
get started right so that as they
progress in the grade schools they will
not have to take two years to pass one
grade? These are vital questions, and
only the parent whose child has failed
In some course in school can realise
the difference between having a trained
and an untrained teacher when the
child starts out.
7 "Statistics show that In Oregon It
costs the state at least $400,000 yearly
to reteach the children who have failed
because of incompetent teachers. The
monetary consideration, however, is
only incidental. The great considera
tion Is that when a child has failed
and the next year is compelled to take
the course over again, you have there
by taken from that child's life one
full year, which neither you nor any
one else can give back to him.
Varaarlea Maat Be Filled.
' We have over COO0 teachers in this
state Those who leave the teaching
profession leave vacancies which must
be filled. These vacancies run about
10i)0 yearly. The one normal school
In this state will furnish from 150 to
250 trained teachers a year. The bal
ance of the vacancies must be filled
either from other states or with un
trained teachers. The fact is that 99
per cent of these vacancies are filled
with untrained teachers. Can we af
ford to allow this last year by our
boys and girls who have failed to be
charged up against us for not trying
to cut down this 90 per cent? The
establishment of two more normal
schools In the state of Oregon is
Dig step toward supplying this deficiency.
"Eastern Oregon Is particularly cut
suit of any advantages of a normal
school. At the present normal school
at Monmouth there are only 24 stu
dents from the 1 counties of Eastern
Oregon. This number of students at
our Monmouth Normal is only about 1
per cent of the requirement to keep
the teaching force of this part of the
Inland t.mplre up to standard. In com
paring Kastern Oregon with the Wil
lamette Valley we find that all the
state institutions of learning are situ
ated in that valley. In addition to this,
the Willamette Valley has numerous
Institutions of learning established by
religious denominations and private
endowment. These institutions of
learning serve as centers of education
and culture for those localities, while
In all of Eastern Oregon, as well as
Southern Oregon, there is not one such

because it vitally affects the develop
ment of this part of the state, which is
tributary to the great metropolis.
Furthermore, Inasmuch as the legisla
tors of Eastern Oregon have supported
the institutions of the state located in
Western Oregon, (end we are justly
proud of them), we appeal to the voters
of Western Oregon to support us In our
attempt to progress upon the same

placed upon the ballot, is one of the

The recent action of the Relief So
ciety an organization of women and
the oldest of the auxiliaries within the
Mormon Church, in turning over to the
jsational Food Administration its accu
mulated wheat, has been featured by
the press and has formed the inspiring
theme of orators on the public ros
trum and in Congressional halls.
The Relief Society was established
under the personal direction of the
Prophet Joseph Smith in 1842, and
stands as one of the early, if not in fact
the first, distinctive organizations of
women in America. The purpose of Its
existence is the alleviation of distress,
and from its Inception the members
have been as ministering angels in the
homes of poverty, sickness, or death.
Its current activities are mostly turned
to Red Cross work and food conserva
As soon as prosperity began to smile
upon the Mormon fields in the Great
American Desert these bigrhearted
women, responsive to the counsel of
their prophet-leader, Brigham Toung,
undertook to lay aside a little wheat
at every harvest. The individual con
tributions ranged from half a peck to
a few bushels. This store was drawn
upon to meet the calls of the hungry
but, as the conquest of the desert be
came each year more pronounced, as
the arid soil was made to yield more
abundantly, the women's yearly gifts
of grain increased, and from season to
season the surplus accumulated.
The following excerpts are taken
from an able address by Hon. Milton
H. Welling in the House of Represen
tatives, June 7, 1918. .
"Brigham Young fostered and en
couraged as one of the auxiliary or
ganizations of the church the Woman's
Relief Society. With the main purpose
of that great organization its charit
able and educational work I am not
now concerned. These women were ad
vised as one of their minor activities
to store wheat, and it is of this rather
unusual activity 1 wish to speak.
"In the early days of Utah's history
and in the humble beginning of the
Relief Society, these women gleaned
the harvest fields in order that no
precious head of grain should be lost.
Wheat was so precious to the pioneers
that it was used as a medium of ex
change. It was the standard of value
by which other commodities were meas
ured. They had little or no other cur
rency. My own mother has related to
me more than once her association with
and cheerful participation in this work
of gleaning the precious yellow grain.
"Later on by purchase and donation
these women added more rapidly to
their store of wheat. As the stock grew
it was moved from the small wooden
granaries belonging to the local Relief
Society organizations to great steel and
cement elevators constructed for that
purpose and controlled by the women
themselves. From the beginning these
women were taught that the time would
come when every available pound oi
wheat would be needed to conserve the
Nation's life and prevent famine and I
starvation. It has remained a strongly
intrenched tradition with the women of
this organization, and they believe it to
be true today.
"This Spring, in April, there were In
the elevators belonging to the Mormon
women of Utah and other adjacent
Western States 205,518 bushels of first
class milling wheat. Last month these
devoted women felt that the time had
come for them to use their precious
savings of more than 60 years. Through
the presidency of the Mormon Church
every pound of this wheat was tendered
to and accepted by the United States
Food Administration for the use of the
starving women and children among
our allies, and for the use of our sol
diers and sailors in the Army and Navy
of the United States.

mentioning this incident until yester
