military service, while 535,000 mem
bers each a loyal and true Ameri
can supported their brothers In uni
form by active service . behind the
lines throughout the war, represents
a potent influence which can accom
plish much In defeating the spirit of
tmrest now facing the country,
brought Frank L. Rain of Falrbury,
Neb., to Portland yesterday.
Mr. Rain holds the highest position
in the Benevolent and Protective
Order of Elks, that of grand exalted
ruler, and he Is touring the United
States, visiting subordinate lodges in
every state, inspecting work of sub
ordinate officers and advising with:
grand lodge officers, but, above all
preaching to his large audiences a
simple sermon on Americanism.
, lie is accompanied by his wife, a
charming woman, who is as much In

Portland yesterday morning'. Accom
panying him were Wilson S. Wiley,
deputy grand exalted ruler of Ore
pon, south; Clarence L. Underwood,
exalted ruler of Klamath Kails lodge
of Elks; Mrs. Underwood, and C.

land lodge; Dr. Ben L. Norden, es
teemed leading knight of Portland
lbdge; William McGinn, esteemed
loyal knight of Portland lodge; and
James D. Olson, secretary of the Ore
Son State Elks' association.
- Coming from California, Mr. and
Mrs. Rain stopped for a short time at

temple, the keynote of his address
being the Americanization of all who
remain on the soil of the United
States. Mr. and Mrs. Rain left for
Tacoma on a late train last night.
- "The Order of Elks is an American
order," said Mr. Rain yesterday. "No
lodge pf Elks has ever been Instituted
in a country over which the stars and
stripes did not wave. We have sworn
allegiance to our flag and the consti
tution of the United States, and now
that there appears to be a world
wide movement to destroy the rights
given us by the constitution of the
United States our order is pledged, to
use all lawful means to check and
prevent the spread of this movement.
Trouble-Makers Slant Go.
- "Through propaganda, dangerous to
our free government and to our In
stitutions and in disobedience of our
raws, the exponents of bolshevism,
anarchism, I. W. W.ism and follow
ers of kindred organizations must be
driven from our midst. They must
be exterminated, and the Elks, 600,000
of them throughout the United States,
are determined that the promoters of
revolution in this country must go."
Mr. Rain was elevated to the posi
tion of grand exalted ruler at the
grand lodge convention of the order
held last July in Atlantic City. He
has been a member of the grand lodge
since 1911, having been chairman of
the committee on laws for two years
and serving as a member of this com
mittee for five years.
. When not busily engaged with the
duties which fall on the shoulders of
the chief of the great order of Elk
dom, Mr. Rain is prosecuting attorney
of Jefferson county, Nebraska, now
serving his fourth term in that posi
tion. Before beginning the present
tour, Mr. Rain participated in the wel
come accorded to General John J.
Pershing, a member of the Elks lodge
in Lincoln, Neb., and an honorary
member of the El Paso, Texas lodge of
Elks. The reception given to the commander-in-chief
of the American ex
peditionary forces was held in the
lodge room of the New York lodge ol
Eks, where more than 3000 Elks
gathered to honor the great soldier.

t. Girls if you want plenty of thick,

" It doesn't do much good to try to
crush or wash it out. The only sure
"Way to get rid of dandruff is to dis
solve it, then you destroy it entirely.
.To do this, get about four ounces of
ordinary liquid arvon; apply It at
Tiiight when retiring; use enough to
moisten the scalp and rub It in gently
.with the finger tips.
. By morning most, if not all, of your
'Candrulf will be gone, and three or
'four more applications will completely

You will find, too. that all Itching

your hair will look and feel a hundred
times better. You can get liquid arvon
at any drug store. It is inexpensive
and four ounces is all you will need,

a slippery floor where a dance was in
progress, fracturing an arm.
John P. Sullivan, past grand exalted
ruler, of New Orleans, who was sched

glasses? Are you a victim of eye
strain or other eye weaknesses? If
so, you will be glad to know that ac

Now I can read everything without
any glasses and my eyes do not water
any more.- At night they would pain
dreadfully; now they feel fine all the

seems clear. 1 can even read fine
print without glasses." It is believed
that thousands who wear glasses can
now discard them in a reasonable
time and multitudes more will be
able to strengthen their eyes so as to
