It waa 11:S0 o'clock and . the school
d oora awung : open. -A, hundred tiny

tiny cottar a mlnuta'a run awav. tin
i the want they daahed. " Every tiny flat
jbeld a cola. The ' daablng current of
oimmnave ilie waa checked because In
the narrow door bulked tha form of a
i woman with a box. One at a time they
had to paaa her, dropping tha tribute of
I a five-cent piece, r In marveloualy little
Inline aa many as could find room were
standing about narrow, uncovered tables
i cf glistening, clean. . fir wood.
"Beans today," a youngster shouted.
ana gingerbread I" r
j But there really wasn't much Boise
except of shuffling . feet and over-cx-larclsed
spoons. v Before each was set a
i bowl of bean soup and two thick slices
jof bread and butter, and two crackers
. ana- generous sue or ginger bread. ,.;
Great east Injoyed. y
1 followed the beans to their source.
They came from a big vessel that would
hold about iO gallons. Ona exceedingly
' busy little lady ladled tha beans Into
a pitcher, from which she served a por.
i tlon to eaoh youngster. . Others helped
In the serving and a rapid-fire dish
.washing. It was- an equal suffrage af
, fair girls .ware served aa generously
and no more promptly than were boys.
'A John D. Rockefeller who wants to
pay a million for a new digestion would
i have gasped at the speed with which
j beans disappeared, accompanied by the
, bread and butter, followed byv the gin-
Kerbread. f It . was all good and whole-
Bach gave place as soon as lunch was
, finished, ; for outside the door was an
i ether crowding line ,of older ohildren.
( In tha Incredibly brief space of 45 mln
j wtes la two vary small rooms more than
200 . hungry children were satisfied.
. Meanwhile in another room of th same
general proportions a dozen Instructors,
I Including the principal, a. F. Ball, had
lunch at IB cents each, for which extra
, amount they had a whlta table cloth,
jeome meat coffee and flowers with the
beans, bread and gingerbread. It was
lav nice social gathering, where they had
I opportunity to talk over the Incident
i of the morning. . . ,
"'.'f-;; Fla Zs ' Oooparatlva. , .
Th Arleta school luncheon Is neither
,a philanthropy; or a charity. It Is a
iaooperative effort of the parent teach
,ars. and the school board. It is founded
jon the principle, first, that a warm
luncheon is better than a cold one. Some
jof the children had been bringing pen.
jBies and buying food not nearly 80
Wholesome. Mrs. Ward, working through
(the Parent-Teachers' circle, is really the
, author of the plan, I am given to un
'deretand. The feeding of the children centered
jla a building secured by the school
'board, and altogether unfitted and In
; adequate, relieves the noon-day lunch
i responsibility of many mothers and
jxnany homes. Some further explanation
.of the plan was furnished by Principal
Jg. F. Ball, who said:
, Tba Arleta school Is patronized by
i people living In a somewhat ncauered
t district With almoat no sidewalks; In
, good weather about 200 children bring
their' lunches. In etorrny weather,
epeclsJly If It Is cold, this number is
swelled to 600 or TOO.
-Freauently children bring S cents
with; which to buy something to eat,
and ixjt Infrequently they buy candy
that Is often of inferior quality.
, "A knowledge of these conditions led
jtha ParentTeachers association of Ar
jleta school to obtain the use of a home
on a lot purchased by the school board
lor playgrounds with permission to
, aerva school lunches there.
. "Tha house was cleaned. kalsomlned
and fitted with lunch counters by the
school board. ' Modern plumbing for
I kitchen and toilet waa Installed py stud
ents of the. school of trades, it waa
i ready for use Saturday,' October 11,
, tliouffh it was not the intention to begin
serving , lunches until Tuesday. . But
aionday ibelng ' stormy ; -a 'hurry up'
lunch was prepared and served to 63
pupils. On Tuesday, the regular open.

lug of a bowl of soup, two slices of

MAKE HGHT IN 1914
W. C.f T. Al;A Will Jbiit With
Party Regardless of. Action .
of Anti-Saloon League.
Next year has been chosen for the
biggest prohibition campaign 'In the
history of the state of Oregon. Despite
the announcement or the Anti-saloon
league, before the : Presbyterian Synod
Friday afternoon that it would not' en
gage In a state-wide prohibition , cam
palgn until 1914, the Prohibition party
and the Women's Christian Temperance
Union are preparing to wage . the fight
In this state in 1914. The time is ripe,
they believe, and they Intend to strike
while the iron Is hot, 2 1 v
' The Anti-saloon league, on the other
hand favors a campaign against the
home rule law in 1914, to be followed
by a state-wide prohibition movement
in 1916. Whether the ' Anti-saloon
league will join with the Prohibition
party and the W. C. T. TJ.,' remains to
be seen. It is highly probable, how
ever, that sufficient headway gained by
the 1914 movement will draw the
league Into the fray.' ". ." ; '"fVy
With the action of tha Presbyterian
Synod Friday In resolving to enter Into
a state-wide prohibition " campaign
whenever all the organizations "Inter
ested were agreed as to the year, - the
Prohibition party Is practically assured
of the church's support .The Methodist
Episcopal church has already adopted
resolutions "favoring the earliest; con
oerted campaign possible, which prac
tically pledges them to 1914. .V-;;;;. :''.
Hopes were never brighter in Oregon
Prohibition circles, according- to the
officials at the party's headquarters.
George C. Pendell, who has come from
New York city to manage the campaign,
is most sanguine in his forecast of the
future, j "We are out to Win.?, be' said
yesterday, "and we can only . insure
state-wide prohibition, by the election
of officers who will enforce the liquor
laws. The Prohibition party is a poll
tlcal party; there is no secret about it
either. We are out -td ; place 'candi
dates of our party lit of floe, la 'the leg

we - hope, "In congress.' V.,- f: t;
"From our headquarters hero In port

coming election and securing pledges
by the hundred. We already have 12,000
voteh pledged and will have. 60,000 at
the end of tha next it 'months whirh

difficulty was for want of table room.
"There Is v scarcely room td feed eO
pupils at one time. Lunch counters ex
tend around the room, as they give more
room than tables. One hundred of the
smallest pupils arc sent la time to be
served before "the regular classes are
dismissed, and these are placed on both
sides of the lunch counter and served
at nee. Everything Is Jn place for
them before they arrive. After the first"
table they , are served in relays of 50
each. , No seats are used because more
can bo served when, they stand and they
are quite as comfortable standing be
cause they are sitting all the. forenoon.
"The financial features may be of in
terest to those wishing to begin a sim
ilar undertaking. The cost of food' and
will be In conjunction with local tem
perance societies - for the solution of
