I HE future work of the National
League for Woman's Service will
be centered upon overseas relief
work, according to Mrs. Winfield
Smith, of Seattle. Northwest chairman,
who addressed committee chairmen of
the Portland League at a meeting yes

of whether we are at war or at peace.
xaid Mrs. Smith. ".'While every local
ity must work out its own problems
and will have individual cases to meet.
it is not difficult to see that the work
of the canteen division and the social
welfare division .under the War Camp
Community Service will discontinue, as
oon as peace is actually signed.
"Our last word direct from ' Mr.
Hoover, which came a few days before
he left for Europe, says that the work
' of our food division is to be more im
portant than it ever has been. Women
from all over the Northwest are asking
me, 'Are : going to feed Germany?
I have answered each one of them that,
of course, we are to feed Germany. As
long as we have food we will not let
anyone starve.. We at least can give
those people physical support. -
"It would be my suggestion." said
Mrs. Smith, "that the women who have
served in the canteen divisions and in
the social welfare divisions and In the
other divisions whose work will be ma
terially cut down, give thei. time to
the making of garments for devastated
rance and Belgium. We always have
tried to make our work begin where
the work of other organizations leaves
off and for that reason I would make
the suggestion that we giv especial
attention to garments for the women.
Kvery woman, no matter If she is a
peasant or an aristocrat likea a dainty
garment. We have had to send only
the roughest sort of garments to give
these poor creatures protection from
the elements. Can't we now send them
an occasional dainty garment? These
cannot be sent through the American
committee for devastated France be
cause we must send air garments ac
cording to specifications, but we can
get some through the Belgium relief
"The Seattle chapter has done a won
derful work in reconstructing garments
for children out of men's shirts wijich
we have gathered from the clubs in
the city. These we make by the thou
sands. We have bought and paid for
a bailer. We pack our things in Seattle
and ship them direct, preventing delay
and congestion in the New York office.
If the Portland League wishes to turn
its time to making these garments we
would be glad to have them sent to
Seattle and we will ship them' from
"We are closely allied to the work
of the American Committee of Devas
tated Prance through our National
treasurer. Miss Anne Morgan. Miss j
Morgan Is a National vice-president of I
the American committee and Is now in
France. Through her come the appeals
for garments and she also has sent us
word that we must continue with our
efforts in the agricultural reconstruc
tion of France. The work of the Amer
ican committee will continue another
two years at the most conservative
estimate and we must be ready to give
It our support all of that time.
"The Kanning Kitchens have been
one of the most successful undertak
Ings of the league and it has been sug
gested that they continue for another
Summer at least. While there will not
b the hospitals to supply, there is
always a good market for home canned
fruits and vegetables and I am sure
that we can make the Kitchen a valu
able source of income. The money can
be turned into the overseas division to
be devoted to the Belgians and peoples
of central Europe.
"The work of the kid glove Jackets
also must continue until the present
supply of gloves Is used up. at any
rate. Ae are receiving calls from the
nurses and ambulance drivers in Ku
rope, who find them an Invaluable pro
tection from the cold.
"There has been some talk about the
Belgian relief work being taken over
by the Red Cross, but my latest advices
from Washington assure me that this
work will continue under its old head
for some time to come and that our
support will be Just as necessary as it

REGOX AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallis,' Nov. 22. (Spe
cial.) That the ideal that one never
hears the shell that gets him is false,
is the assertion of Tom Duffy, brother
of E. M. Duffy, manager of the busi
ness office of the college, in a letter
"You certainly can hear them, and
the best thing one can do is to fall
down on the ground and avoid -the
splinters," he writes. "In this . way
shells can explode very near orte and do
nothing more than scare hell out of
him, and maybe give him a little re
ligion. I am saying my prayers regu
larly myself now.
"Foolhardiness is discouraged here,
but fear of death is the most useless
thing in the world at the front, for
the reason that chance plays no favor
ites. You hear a big gun 'fire some
where away off, and then you hear a
shrill whistle, and you wonder if it
will land near you, and just then it
bursts with a terrific roar some dis
tance from you, and whatever it hits
goes skyrocketing n little pieces. .
"One evening recently I went to the
top of a high hill, and for two hours
watched the Germans shell an obser
vation balloon from a distance of
miles. There was absolute quiet, ex
cept for the occasional shot at the
balloon, which came at about 10-min-ute
"From my place of observation I
could see the full moon as it rose in all
its glory on one horizon and then look
at the sun as it gilded the west in gold
before going down. It was all very
beautiful, and as one looked over the
stU countryside in the enchanting twi-
itgntne round it hard to realize that
not far away civilization and barbarism
were locked in a death grapple.
I he dark spots would again appear
near the balloon and many seconds
after I could hear the faint detonation
of the gun. and then several seconds
later the shrill whistle of the shell,
and then the explosion near the bal
loon. The balloon kept shifting its po
sition, and you may imagine that there
are more pleasant jobs than being up
in the air a half mile and having some
one fire big shells at you.
"The Germans fired about 15 shots at
it in two hours, and as darkness closed
on the scene the last thing I could see
was the balloon still defiantly up.
"We were not in bed a half hour
before we heard the rattle of machine
guns and aircraft guns, followed by
the heavy detonation of aircraft bombs,
and you should have seen the commo
tion as we beat it for the bombproofs.
in all stages of dress or undress and
I am just as well satisfied that rou
have not a picture of yours truly'
beating it across the fields, wearing not
a great deal besides a gas mask slung
over his shoulder."
