Arouses Realization
Of Realities of War
The Red Cross campaign in Ash
land was opened Monday with a rous
ing meeting in Llthia park. The
business houses closed for three hours
and hundreds joined in the commun
ity dinned at the picnic grounds fol
lowing which they attended the ex
ercises held at the bandstand.
The stand was beautifully decor
ated with greens, red cross flags,
allies flags and the American flag.
Three squads 6f the 1st company
were stationed on guard duty around
the grounds and lent a military air
to the day. The Ashland band play
ed several selections and accompa
nied the chorus led by Mrs. Elmore
In singing "America," "It's a Long
Way to Tlpperary" and "The Star
v Spangled Banner."
. E. V. Carter acted as master of
i ceremonies and after a brief introj-
, ductory talk introduced Prof. Irving
E. Vinlng who delivered a forceful,
clear outline of the aims and needs
of the Red Cross, work, explaining
the Inception of the Red Cross work,
the wonderful part which the Red
Cross Is playing In the alleviation of
Buffering and the' saving of lives In
the great Eureopean conflict, the sys
tematic organization which t rea

all the workers, admits of every cent

Iron Police Posts
To Stand at Corners
"Look out for the Iron policeman,
autoists.," For Ashland Is to have
Iron traffic polfcemen stationed at
the principal corners to direct the
auto driver In the way he shall turn.
The purchase of probably a half doz
en of the traffic regulators was or
dered Tuesday night by tho city coun
cil, and it is hoped to have them be
fore the celebration. They will be
placed at the worst corners. These
Iron posts, placed In the center of the
street, are in use In many cities and
have proved quite successful In mak
ing the autoists keep to their own
side of the road in making the turn.
Monster Red Cross
Parade Saturday
It is being arranged that a monster
parade will be formed at the East
side school on Saturday evening at
8 o'clock and will march through the
streets of Ashland, in commemoration
of tho close of this wonder-week's
work in raking Red Cross funds.
Everybody who has a sentiment of
patriotism In his or her makeup is
not only expected, but commanded to
Join the parade. Auto's will be deco
rated to suit the owners' taste; flags,
of course, will be in evidence, for
Uncle Sam will be in command; mu
sic and flowers are expected in pro
fusion. Everybody is expected to
wear a Red Cross badge, and all will
take notice that It will be dangerous
to appear without such badge. The
members of the Red Croso Society will
all wear their Red Cross uniforms.
All Bultob.le and proper banners will
be admitted. All questions to be
asked for information should be sub
mitted to Mrs. Benton Bowers, chair
man of the parade committee.

It was twice as larse. The board met
Tuesday night to qualify. H. F. Poh
land was reappointed secretary.
Say Big Crowds
Coming From North
The roundup delegation which vis
ited the Portland Rose Festival and
also every town between here and
Portland returned Tuesday and re
port a highly successful trip. At
Portland the five Ashland cowboy
singers were one of the unique fea
tures of the festival parades and ac
complished a great lot of advertising
for Ashland. All along the line they
attracted big notice and never failed
to draw a bl? crowd when they sang
on the street corners from, their au
tomoblle. Vast quantities of great
posters, folders, handbills and round
up songs were distributed and were
eagerly sought, and Oregon is
"billed' as It has never before been
billed for such an event. '
Monte Brltjgs reports that In addi
tion to the special train with prob
ably 150 Portlanders, other points
along the line will send big delega'
tlona. Roseburg is coming particu
larly strong and Mr. Brlggs was told
there that a conservative estimate of
fifty automobile loads from there
would not cover the number who
wpre coming, cottage urove will
. . i
send seven automobile loads, Salem
about fifty people, and other places
In proportion. ,
The Philomath show is on this
week and the sixty head of stock and
the thirty star roundup performers
from Pendleton, who, by th,e way,
Mr. Brlggs, says are as clean a bunch
of gentlemen as one could hope to
meet, were met there and will arrive
in Ashland Tuesday.

Monte Briggs brings word from Portland that the Portland
Chamber of Comnerce and the business men of the Portland metrop
olis have got behind a special train from that city to Ashland for
tho roundup and Hyiu Hehe July 3, 4 and 5. One hundred and
thirty business houses have already given assurance that they will
send representatives, The Portland Police Band will also come on
the train, which will arrive here the morning of the 3rd and will
be parked on tho uptown station track within half a block of the
If park. Accommodations, both sleeping cars and diners, for the Port-

a business men have been working hard on the proposition for several
weeks., D. B. Grant, who Is in Portland, has been one of the hard-
est workers for the train.
jj A special train from Coos Bay will also be parked on the uptown
siding. -
The following Is from the Port
land Oregonlan: Portland business
men are going to have a "Hyiu Hehe"
with their business friends at Ash
land July 3, 4 and 5.
Yesterday approximately 130 firms
were listed among those who desire
to take a personal lesson in Chinook.
According to Ashland representa
tives in the cit,y "hyiu hehe" stands
for "big time", and it will be held
at tho second annual Rogue River
Practically every wholesale and
jobbing house in Portland has signed
up an agreement to send one or more
representatives. A speciai train, with
the police band of 50 pieces aboard,
will leave Portland at 7:30 the night
Red Cross Fund Committees
Gaining Fine Results in City
The entire city Is given over to Red
Cross work this week and the results
obtained aro fulfilling the hopes of
those at the tead of the work. Ash
land will have accomplished her share
in a manner which leaves no doubt
of the city's patriotism when the to
tatls are summed up Saturday night
at the close of the campaign
Perfect organization of the cam
paign In Ashland Is the predominant
factor in the success of th,e week's j
work, and the nine committees are j
covering the city In a most thorough 1
manner. The response has been unl- i
formly good and practically every cit- j of mercy, the patience and- persever
izen will wear the Red Cross badge ' Every afternoon the regular
of honor which is given to every con -
trlbutor by the close of the week.
Tho week has been a very busy one j
for the Red Cross workers. Head
quarters in the Elks Temple has been
animated with the buzz and bustle of
fifty workers. At noon each day the
captains and their assistants gather
to report and to straighten out such
kinks as may have pnarled the yarn.
Everything Is animation and eager in
terest. Many little happenings and inter
esting incidents come to the surface.
Some are trivial, some ludicrous,
some pathetic. One lady contributed
$10 and, not having the money to pay
it, pledged jewelry as security. A
man and wife living In the country,
having no boys of their own to go to
th,e front, came in and subscribed
$25, saying that they would have to
borrow It, but felt that they could not
do less, that to them It meant an op
portunity they might never have
again. To them the cause had that
significance that marks the patriotic
principle upon which our Institutions
are founded. Two boys about 14
years old came to one of the solicitors
and gave a dollar each, saying that
they were not old enough to be taken
as soldiers and they wanted to do
One man possessed of more venial
suspicion than patriotism or common
sense refused to subscribe because,
he said, he, understood that the can
vassers were to get 10 per cent of
what they collected. There is noth
ing in such a soul as that to make
either a patriot or a good citizen.
Such suspicion ought to be watched.
How different is such a character
from the woman who offered the so
licitors $5. The solicitor Knew une
could not afford it and refused to
take more than-$3. Others were
found who were genuinely heart sick
because they coulq subscribe nothing.

To Roundup I
Hehe Is Assured
of July 2. Excursionists will occupy
the train during their stay at Ash
land and will have meals In dining
cars. ,
On tho return trip the train will
reach Portland at 7:30 a. m July 6.
While the excursion train will be
operated under the direction of the
bureau of publicity and cenventions
of the Portland Chamber of Com
merce, the larger part of the work
of interesting business men was "put
over" by the merchandising experts
of Ashland. The latter wrote their
Portland houses, promised them a
handsome order and insisted on their

a touch of solemnity about It. The
great tidal wave of fully aroused in

the land. People are waking up.
The various church denominations
are at the front each day at noon with
delectable viands for the work
ers. Each denomination has one day,
and It Is interesting to see the pleas
ant rivalry In preparing and serving
the splendid luncheons. On Tuesday
the Presbyterian ladies put up a
lunch that caused many a surprised
epicure to smack his Hps In satisfac
tion. On Wednesday the ladles of
the Christian church, headed by Mrs.
Melllnger, were on hand with a "Mex
ican menu", that made everybody sit
up and take notice. We'd like to have
such a lunch every day. Oh,, you
crusty old bachelor, do you know
where you are at?
At the request of tho executive
committee, militia guards were posted
at the entrance and exit of the park
to stop autos and thus avoid the noise
which would be annoying alike to the
speakers and the hearers at Monday's
Red Cross rally In the park. This
arrangement should have been given
publicity so that all might understand
the purpose of this restriction, but
through ufortunate oversight the
executive committee failed to an
nounce the matter through the papers
and as a consequence a number of
our citizens were unnecessarily incon
venienced and annoyed. The execu
tive committee regrets this oversight
and offers its apologies therefor.

Murphy, A. W. Storey, II. T. Elmore,
Howard Robo and J. II. McGee.
Are Needed
The number of peoplo who have
listed rooms for tho accommodation
of visitors during the Hyiu Hehe has
been a great disappointment to the
accommodation committee1, .There
are a great number of residents who
may have visitors', but In case these
do not come, their rooms could be
used by this committee and thereby
give these residents an opportunity to
make a little money for their use and
the work connected with same.
People who have rooms to rent or
desire to feed any of these visitors
during the celebration should kindly
call at the city hall and give the
young ladles In the recorder's office
all tho information regarding same.
W. H. Gowdy will again have charge
of assigning rooms ,to the visitors.
He will have an assistant who will
be required to stay In the department
headquarters until 12 o'clock at
