Prominent Men and Women
in Co-operative Effort.
CITY WILL BE BOOSTED
Social Features to Be Promoted to
Combat Disintegration of
Organization of a community serv
ice association by prominent men and
women of the city during the past
week puts Portland once more to the
front, this being; the first larse city
to take this action, according to a
statement issued yesterday. It is the
purpose to sustain the records made
here during- the war. which put Tort
land in the front rank of patriotism
and co-operative effort and made its
name famous throughout the country.
A number of well-known men and
women of the city met last Wednes
day at the Chamber of Commerce and
discussed the situation, later forminK
the organization, with the following
W. F. Woodward, president: Mar
shall Dana, first vice-president; San
ford Lowengart, treasurer: Estcs
Snedecor. secretary; Otto Hartwi?,
William D. Wheelwright, third vice
president: Harold Wendel. second
vice-president; J. H. Joyce. Elizabeth
Bain. Mary Frances Isom and Charies
According: to announcement, the
Community Service association work
will not be done by an outside organ
ization, but by Portland citizens who
wish to give of their time and talents
in constructive effort for the upbuild
ing of the city. It will largely take
the form of neighborhood organiza
tion for the promotion of athletics,
social affairs. music, educational
courses., drama and general good
times. It is hoped to combat by these
means the rapid disintegration of
family life. It has no intention of
attempting to build up a big- paid
staff, but to afford opportunity for
those who have a desire to be of
service to the community.
"It is hoped," says the formal state
ment Just issued, "that all persons in
terested will become members of the
association. Members are classified
according to the amount of their sub
scriptions active. $1; contributing.
$10: supporting. $25. and sustaining.
$100. A $100 membership secures no
more privileges than the $1 member
ship, but simply multiplies the use
fulness of the association.
"It is not plann-ed to put on a
"drive" to secure funds. Memberships
will be solicited to establish and main
tain the work. The organizers of the
movement feel confident that the re
sults achieved by the War .'amp Com
munity Service in its work for service
men indicates what can be done in a
general community programme.
"An information service under a
trained and efficient director, where
practically any question asked by a
puzzled or curious visitor can be in
telligently answered, is being planned.
This service should perhaps be called
the hospitality branch of the service,
since it is through it that a hospita
ble and courteous greeting is extended
