Miss McMillan Tells Women
What Work Offers to Returned
By Vella Winner
THE Importance of this, the recon-dtj-iiotlnn

greatest war, and what it offers to the
returned soldiers, was brought out In
a practical and vivid way by Miss Mary
McMillan, head of the Reed college re
construction clinic In her address be
fore the Portland Woman's Research
club ' at Its monthly luncheon held In
the crystal room of the Hotel Benson,
with covers for 106. By means of the
various branches of reconstruction work,
physio-therapy, occupational therapy,
vocational and educational therapy,' the
wounded and maimed-men are helped
to a more speedy recovery by means of
mind-diversion and the bringing Into use
of the senses and parts of the body
that have through Injury become par
tially or wholly useless, she said. Many
of these lines of work, she pointed out,
open up avenues that lead to Indus
trial and agricultural training; thus
making the men useful and happy ctti
rens. In less than' a year 300 women
have equipped themselves for this Im
portant phase of war work, she said.
Captain Jack Hamilton, a Britisher
who has been In the army since he was
19, having served In the Boer, Indian
and European wars, told . Interesting
tales ot some of those earlier conflicts.
touched on a few of the horrors of the
late war and closed with the romantic
story of his courtship and subsequent
marriage to the little French girl whom
he rescued from the Huns, and who Is
now In Portland with him.
Judge John H. Stevenson gave a hearty
New Year's greeting, touching upon the
great importance of the peace confer
ence. The Werrenr sisters" quartet gave
two beautiful selections to open the
luncheon, and 'for closing a verse of
"The Star-Spangled Banner" was sung.

each beaver had allowed this wonderful
thing to happen. They had Invited the
robins to, build their nests on top of

had those lovely roof gardens, and the
nests were filled with little robins. And

lovely songs of the pretty red-vested mu

their hands eo loud that the robins had
to repeat many of their selections.
When Peter Rabbit and Ned Chip

Motion Picture War
Service Fund to Be
Devoted a Home
The Motion Picture War Service, asso
ciation. In its old form, Is now a thing
of the past, and most of the monies
held, outside of certain disbursements
and expenses, ill be returned to the
donors. In its place has arisen a mo
tion picture fund, not yet named. This
fund will take care of old anc indigent
photoplayers and perform other charit
able and necessary functions.
One ot the objects of the War Serv
ice association was to build and dedicate
a Urge hospital for wounded and sick 1
soldiers to the government, but certain
difficulties with the government made j
this Impossible. It is quite possible that
the new fund will consider the erection i
of a Motion Picture home in or near I
At a meeting held to disband the
association and create a new fund, Frank
E. Woods, supervising director of the
Vine Street Famous-Lasky studios, was
asked by the members present to act an
provisional president and organizer of
the new fund, his name being put for
ward by David W. Griffith and unani
mously agreed to by all those present
Mr. Woods agreed on the condition that
Miss Mary Pickford act as "honorary
president," and Miss Mary said sha
Mr. Woods suggested that those pres
ent donate to the new fund, and David
W. Griffith. Mary Pickrord, William S.
Hart, Dustin Farnum, Mack Sennett and
Douglas Fairbanks each subscribed' $500
on the spot. '
