..Plans' for the campaign ia Marion
county for relief for the destitute
and staryinK people' of Armenia and
Syria are rapidly forging ahead, j
One of the first, steps by the com
mittee will be to enlist the help, of
teachers 'and -schoes of the 'county
att a deans of getting the tragic story
of the stricken lands into the' minds
and hearts of the people. - ? '
Mass meetings are being planned
for every town and - community -In
the county when organization will
bo effected for an eyery-homo cam

Plans for the campaign In Salm
are practically cwnplete. The" city
will be divided according to roting
precincts of which' there are eight
een. Three dirtsion managers will
each have, charge of six precincts anJ
each precinct will , have a , captain
and squad of five. Each precinct Is
allotted a definite sum of money, to
raise according to voting population.
A similar estimate Is fixed for each
community In the county. s
According to present 'plans the
first mass meeting will talc4 place
in Salem on Sunday night, January
13, and simultaneously at Silverton.
Woodbur and Stayton. Other mass
meetings, embracing every commun
ity in the county, will follow.
The committee Is much encourag
ed by the pronounced indication of
public feeling shown ly the response
In several churches during holiday
observances wherevpr the Armenian
Syrian 'appeal was made. Four hun
dred dollars In cash was the response
at " the First Methodist church and
this sum was eaualed or more than
equaled In several of ; the smaller!
churches In proportion to the num
ber present, the small congregation
at Jason Lee Memorial responding
with $ SO in cash.
Manaser Gill Comments.
From the standpoint of urgent
need based upon intense suffering
and starvation, this appeal Is1 the
most piteous of any that has been
made since the war began. ;
Relief for suffering' Armenia is as
much a war demand as any other
that has been made'according to the
expression of Robert S. Gill, man
ager for the county campaign to be
waged for funds for the starving mil
lions of the "near east."
"We cannot be fighting to make
the world safe for democracy some
where in France, or waging war in
Europe in behalf of the sovereignty
and ri'hts of small peoples, and al
lowing one of those same peoples in
Asia to be annihilated for lack of
our aid." said Mr. Gill. ' "Sue a
short sighted policy would be both
un-American and inconsistent. The
rehabilitation of Armenia and. Syria
is. as much a !art of our task in the
world war as the restoration of Bel
gium and J northern ' France to its
rightful owners.
f Must Rack President.
"The president says 'We demand
nothing for America that we do not
demand for humanity . which is a
magnificent sentiment, and we have
to mean It and make it good. If Ar
menia is permitted to starve to death
we hav failed to keep our own faith
With ourselves, just as if we permit
ted France to. Weed 'to death. The
two items are precisely on the same
level. I Unless, we mean to take care
of Armenia, we had better revise our
war aims to read, 'To make the world
safe for democracy, except In Asia.'
Responsibility Is Shown.
"The point has already been raised
that w are being asked to pay for a
situation fr which we are entirely
unresponsible. But I wonder if we
are not responsible? Responsible for
allowing : such a government as that
of Turkey to exist; Tor allowing one
people to exercise lorasmp ana nave

in a further response today to the
senate Biilitary 'committee's resolu
tion urging, immediate steps to pro
vide the! soldiers with adequate win-t
ter clothing.' Many of the camps
still are! short of woolen blouses
which the secretary said were partic
ularly bard to obtain. ;
'.The report was based upon toe
war - department's latest telegraphic
advices from -the division command

and local purchases have been Auth

belief that by today "all the men are
comfortable' . .. - . .

merce, and which the Orecon com
mission contemplates adopting fo
thls state. A bearing is to be con
duced on the subject at a date to be
named later. The proposed action
follows the visit to Salem several
weeks ago of an agent of the federal
bureau. : . "
Notice or the contemplated action
has been sent to all interested per
sons and corporations. v
The public service commission in
an order In 1913, amended May,
1914. prescribed certain standards
governing the construction of over
head and underground telegraph,
telephone, signal, trolley and power
lines within Oregon. It now ap
pears that certain portions of the
rules have become obsolete and the
necessity has arisen for certain re
visions and additions to insure per
manency, stability and uniformity In
connection with the requirements
which are being developed In nelgh
borlng states In which Oregon utili
ties ere Interested, v
For these reasons the commission
now, has In contemplation a prelim
inary hearing at a date to befdeter
mined later, at which will be consid
ered the advisability of adopting. !a
part or In whole, 'and with such mod
ifications as may be necessary, the
national electrical safety code recent
ly Issued by the federal "bureau of
standards. . .-. j ':: !
The different uitllties and organiz
ations affected are asked to make
such study of this code as will fa
miliarize them with Its contents, and
ascertain In what respects, if any.
the requirements of the code are In
adequate. ' unreasonable : or Imprae-HcaJLeithrnhmseJj,
parfson wltb the standards now In ,
effect. -
'The fommlssion says it will apprs
clate any suggestions from interest
ed parties In regard to this matter,
and suggests that those finding the
requirements, of the code objectiona
ble In any way-should "hold them
selves In readiness to present the re
sults of their study and exprient
to the commission in detail, and in
such for as to enable Intelligent ac
tion to be taken upon the proposed
Ucode at the proper time.
