Si. Patrick's church is in the midst
of a thickly settled neighborhood and
last Sunday it was estimated that 1000
persons attended services there. '
Back in the early '"80s" a small one
story structure was erected on what is
now Savier street, just west of North
Nineteenth, which served as a church
Sundays and a sisters' school during the
rest .of the week. In 1889 the corner
stone of the new St. Patrick's church
was laid and about that time the origf
nal chapel was raised and another
etory built below. This combination,
with various alterations, did service as
& school until last June and during
its long term of usefulness thousands
of Portland's citizens acquired at least
part of their early training within its
In the little wooden belfry of the old
school hung a bell which was made in
London, England, in 1850, and sent out
to the "poor missions" in the then un
known west. It bears the inscription
of a London firm, is stamped with the
year mentioned and is marked: "Pau
peres evengelizantur" "For the evan
gelization of the poor." The bell came
in the possession of the late Archbishop
Blanchet, first metropolitan of the
province of Oregon; did service in one
or more chapels in this state and final
ly was relegated to the old St. Patrick's
school, from where it accelerated many
a. pair of tiny feet during its long
period of service.
Last June a crew of workmen began
to demolish the old structure. Many
sighs of regret came from hearts in
which earliest and tenderest recollec
tions were associated with the venera
ble landmark. It was found that much
of the heavier lumber and other well
preserved material in the old edifice
could be nised again in the new struc
ture. The new school will be a one-story
modern building with ventilation, san
itation and heating of the highest
standard. It is bungalow style, of
frame and cement construction, with
pebble dash finish on the exterior.
Creeping vines and a variety of plant
growth will serve to beautify the
building and give it a homelike Tather
than a school-like appearance. There
will be four large class rooms, a rest
room and a corridor. It is L-shaped

HERE is no reason why the Sun
day schools of this county and
state cannot be among the best in the
country." is the opinion of Harold F.
Humbert, general secretary of the Ore
gon Sunday School association, who has
Just returned from Lake Geneva, Wis.,
where he attended the annual 10-day
session of the training of the Interna
tional Sunday School association. There
were 845 men and women' from 41 states
and provinces gathered to consider bet
ter methods of Sunday school work.
Mr. Humbert believes much of the
growth of the Sunday schools of the
nation during the past decade can be
traced to the Influences of this train
ing school at Conference Point on Lake
Geneva where county and state leaders
gather each year.
"I am anxious that next year a num
ber of other county officials go to Lake
Geneva," said the state secretary. "I
am ready to help local schools to the
extent of my ability."
The students at Conference Point
were instructed by a faculty of 30 men
and women, specialists in their field
drawn from many denominations and
alf parts of the country. Among the
instructors were Dr. Walter S. Athearn
of Boston university. Dr. M. A. Honline,
professor in Bonebrake Theological
seminary, Dayton. Ohio; Dr. H. F. Rail,
professor in Garrett Biblical institute,
Evanston, 111., and Professor H. Au
gustine Smith, head of music and pag
eantry work in Boston university. W.
C. Pearce, of the International associa
tion, has been dean of the school from
the beginning eight years ago.
The attendance at the school was so
large that plans are being made to hold
similar schools next year on the Atian
tic and Pacific coasts.

to Alaska, where he will spend two
months conducting a campaign for the

Animal Fats Lose Favor for Frying and Olive Product as Base for Salad
Dressing to Late Discovery.
EVER since the Indians passed the
information along to our old
Puritan fathers and their equally
puritanical wives we. In America, have
acknowledged that corn is a wonder
fully nutritious and sustaining food.
It is only within recent years, how
ever, that we have come to realize that
tbe oil in the germ of the corn, hither
to retarded as a by-product, is one of
the most valuable of all the ingredi
ents of the corn.
For recent experiments have proved
that corn oil. pound for pound, is one
of the most readily converted and as
similated of all fats, and that it has
very high nutritive qualities by reason
of this fact.
'Corn oil is a true "made-tn-Amerlca"
product, inasmuch as its use has been
confined largely to America although
It is quite conceivable that, before many
years, there will be a very great de
TOnd created for it abroad especially
in the British Isles, in all the northern
rountries of Europe, and, perhaps, even
in the olive-growing countries them
selves. Corn oil has unique qualities, which
aive it a great advantage over olive oil
in. many respects. For one thing, its
r-iethod of preparation preserves it
frrm rancidity to which olive oil is so
liable, for fermentation processes have
bean overcome in the preparation of
corn oiL
Olive oil, as is generally known, is
merely the cil pressed from ripe olives.
It undergoes no process of refining or
sterilization. So there Is nothing, once
he oil has been exposed to the air or
even before, for that matter to pre
vent the action of bacteria responsible
for the development of rancidity. .
With corn oil. on the contrary, great
care is taken to insure thorough steri'.-
zation. The crude, yellow oil. expressed
from the corn germs, is purified by
filtration and eteamlng. Then the
water, protein substances, and glycer
ine elements, are removed. In the oil
thus sterilized any germs that may
have dropped around are killed. Fur
ther, tho oil is deodorized, and the fer
ments which later on might cause ran
cidity are completely destroyed.
The result is a. limpid, clear, light
yellow colored oil odorless, and with a
peculiar and agreeable sweet flavor
that satisfies a natural taste. For, un
like the taste for olives or olive oil,
the liking for corn oil does not have to
be acquired. It comes right along, and
makes itself "to home" with American
palates, anyhow.
In mixing" salad dressing It has been
found that corn oil is equal to the best
olive oil, and very much better than
ordinary olive oil and at a cost not to
exceed one-half the cost of the highest
grade of Imported olive oil. Indeed,
many discriminating South Europeans,
including Italians, now prefer the sweet
bland corn oil to olive oil.
Corn oil blends perfectly with the
various Ingredients used in "building"
a French or a mayonnaise dressing
making a perfectly smooth and homog
enous combination.
One Interesting fact In connection
with this Use of corn oil Is that corn
..11 does not congeal as readily as does
olive oil. It remains fluid down to
temperature of 14 degrees: whereas
olive oil becomes cloudy and solidifies
at a temperature of S2 degrees. This
makes a very great difference, for crisp
coldness is one of the first requisites
of a salad.
But an even more desirable property
In corn oil is its correspondingly higher
burning point. While butter burns at
about 250 degrees, goose grease at 404
degrees, lard at 45 degrees, cottonseed
! oil at 53s degrees, and ouve ou &t 60U,
corn oil does not burn until it is heated
up to C50 degrees Fahrenheit.
It is the low-burning point of butter,
lard and other fats and oils, that fills
the house with smoke and stench, and
gives all the neighbors wireless in
formation as to what the family is to
have for dinner.
The great advantage of a higher
burning- point in frying steak, fish, on
ions, and other odoriferous foods. Is
that the higher temperature used with
corn oil makes It possible to cook the
food In a shorter space of time, and
thereby prevents the tougherftng of the
meat, the drying out of the fish, and
the diffusion of the perfumes not of
Araby from other comestibles.
Also, the use of corn oil at its tin-
usually high temperature "seals in'
Immediately the surface Juices of the
food, retaining thereby the flavor,
aroma and succulence which would
otherwise be lost, or else disseminated
all over the neighborhood. The food is

This makes it possiDis xo iry oousn
nuts, fish, onions, or any food product

This Is carrying American einciency

right into the heart of the frying pan.
All of which makes for the conserva

describes his trip to Italy while on fur
lough, in an enthusiastic letter to his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Masson,
1501 Milwaukie avenue.
With a friend Masson started from
Brest on leave April 21, stopping at
Paris, Lyons, Marseilles and Nice on
their way to Italy. After crossing the
French border they took many interest
ing sight-seeing tours in Pisa, Rome,
Venice, Milan. Florence and Bologna.
In Pisa they viewed the famous leaning
tower and the lamp of Galileo. Their
next stop was Rome, where they visited
the Coliseum, the Vatican, the cata
combs, the old Roman forum and nu-.
merous other renowned points of in
terest. Masson writes that he and his chum
were in Milan May 1, but their visit
was cut short by the military police,
who drove them out of tho city, an
ticipating demonstrations against
Americans. They were in Rome when
Premier Orlando returned from the
peace conference, but had no particu
lar trouble. -
Masson gives great credit to the T. M.
C. A. for their work in Italy in helping
men on leave to see as much of the
country as possible. This organization
made it possible for him to take many
pleasant memories back to his post at
Brest, which he describes as "the town
that makes Portland look like the Sa
hara desert for rain." Masson expected
at the time of writing to leave for
home August 1.

After leaving the docks this morning
I went up the line to see ths hospital
train. These fine cars were manufac
tured In England for the United States
government. The outside is painted
brown, with two big red crosses and
the letters "U. B." on each side. Long
lines of Red Cross ambulances were
lined up alongside taking off the boys
and transporting them aboard the big
ship at the dock. I was invited to go
on board the train and a nurse showed
me through. All the equipment was of
the best and very complete, including
kitchen, pharmacy, offices, etc It all
looked very fine and as though the
boys were having the best of care. Two
or three ships are leaving daily and it
seems as though all the boys will soon
be home.
As I sit here writing, my companion,
Albert Gale, is practicing on his newly-
acquired, century-old "viola d'amour,'
an, old-fashioned violin, of an, put-of
date pattern. Gale is an unusual man,
quite peculiar, but very interesting. He
has a wide range of talent. He is an
expert accountant and a graduate of
the University of Michigan. He be
gan life as a pharmacist and manufac
turing chemist. Later, as a musician.
he was head of the music, department
of the University of Washington. For
the past 13 years he and his wife have
been on the Chautauqua and Lyceum
circuits, first in a Japanese and Chi
nese skit, but now depleting; the life
and music of the American Indian. He
Is a personal friend of the Indian life
photographer, Curtis of Seattle. He is
a real musician, master of many kinds
of musical instruments: he has a collec
tion of over 200 kinds of old instru
ments. Gale is also a very able actor.
He has been giving his impersonation
of the Indian, witn a little French boy
as his accompanist, to the doughboys
over here under direction of the "Y,"
and he lias given good satisfaction.
Last night I was out at camp 1 and
heard Dr. Dyer of Tacoma, a Congre
gational minister, lead a religious serv
ice. He had the assistance of a band
and the hut was packed, boys even sit
ting in the windows. Dr. Dyer is one
of those who seem always to say the
right thing and say It in the right way
and in a few minutes. I followed htm
with my show and had a good Learing.
Unfortunately all the northwest boys
were tied up in their barracks, so I did
not see them.
