County Community Federa
tion Entertained Mount
. Angel Is Next
f A Frenchman la .easily seduced

pleases him., who is alarmed of-
f enda. Jilm.
A crowd that jammed , the
aisles and glued itself up against
the walls and craned its necfc
to see in through the doors and
windows, greeted the Salem
Heights reception to the Marion
County Community . federation
last night. It was the biggest,
busiest crowd 1 In the history of
the organization. .And one of
the hungriest, ; until the luncheon
had been; literally passed.
,J- A. N, Fulkerson, secretary ot
the Salem Heights Community
club, led in the community sing
ing, which' was especially good
and big. President - Joseph J.
Keher of . Mt. : Angel presided at
the business-session.?- An excep
tional number : of outside dele
gates . were present to represent
their home towns. Three new
Communities were elected to
membership Auburn, and NoTth
Howell, and Brush College in
Polk . county. . .
The next meeting of the feder
ation was officially set : for April
23at Mt. Angel. Governor Pierce
was of flcally, asked to attend as
a guest and to address the meet
ing. He accepted -and will talk
on taxation. f
"The governor Was present at
Salem Heights and spoke brfeUr.
He congratulated the local club
on Us especially noteworthy suc
cess In maintaining a working
identity for so long a time, and
on harlng made such progress in
uniting city and country interests.
There Is- a ' Green Hill . Far
Away," and i it I aa beauUtul
as Miss Iva Claire Love,violiniste
pictured it as she placed it to the
Kiwanis club -luncheoni.Tuesday
noonl the Kiwanis club is unani
mous to i go . there. Maybe j they
haxen't all known, the road? but
the Passdon Week address ot Dr
Carl G, Doney, the principal speak
er for the day, gave some, of, them
an inkling of what , to do to go
there. and they cheered both tne
music anjl the speaker aa If they
wonld all be on the roaa ana
traveling fast. : -
The .attendance prize for the
day was-given by G. E., Terwil-
llger, a miniature oak casket, With
a rag doll, patient and. a versified
dedication of a $S cash-trade or
der on one of the Kiwanian stores'.
It, was won by M. T.-Madsen, of
the, Dixie Bakery, amid loud ap
plause. ; .j
Dr. Doney, president of Wil
lamette. V gave some of the," .'evi
dences of Christianity aa they are
inescapable to the honest, though U
fat mind. He held that; it ' mat
ters infinitely lot. every man what
he shall believe aa td-im mortality.
It takes a more than human- abil
ity to live even decently, he said!
4 1 there is no hereafter to correct
fcpme. of, the wrongs pi this life.
He held 'that, the honest man,, in
Judging f Christianity as. a real
ity,, must treat it as he v would
other evidence, by giving it. the
same. Square deal in conditions as
any other theory. ; J
He asserted that all men . be
lieve in immortality; that, there
is sometnmg witnin man tnat can
not die. Science says that force
is everlasting. : It may be directed
Into "new channels' but it. cannot
be permanently , lost " , The spirit,
the ability to live, is linmortaL To
make the. world right, one .need
only to let the belief have its
rightful development. He ,. be
lieves with Dr. Bashford, the emi
nent' college president ahd Chris
tian statesman, that the death-bed
stories of people who profess to
see into the spirit world, have only
one possible explanation that
they actually do see Into - the ex
istence beyond, this mortal life.
A tnumph of scenic splendor and superb
settings! A, thrilling; spectacular drama
. produced on colossal! proportions and yet
. more than that A romance that withstands
the march. 6f centuries and lives forever j
x - -
He spoke also of the-exceptional
development of the community
friendship spirit in Marion coun
ty, which he said had no counter,
part in the northwest. He con
gratulated the women of the affi
liated '. communities on their co
operation 'to make these' friendly
meetings successful. He refer
red to the supreme1 court decis
ion of a score of y9ars ago, when
they said that women weren't
qualified to be county school
superintendents because they did
not have the ballot.
, The governor said that he re
cently drove down from Port
land, and he was able to visual
ize a population of a millon
people between here and Port
land, and another million in the
city of Portland alone. He be
lieves that the ultimate capital or
the west will be in the north
west, and not near he southern
border of the United States. "
The governor agrees that Ar
gentine,' that i can deliver,, a fine
heef steer, v dressed 1 and frfizeU
to New' York for $50, can beat
Oregon, where the. taxes alone
run to $25 a sleer. But with
this country producing only
per cent of its wool,-he se'Js the
time when the wool industry can
be enormously ihcrelsed. And Ifeela only .contempt for ages ana
with the northwest- having tne
finest flax climate and soil in
the world, he believes thatfWx
'should be a matter for every
body's concern.' "I'll back it to
the last of my ability,' and op
portunity," he said.
The governor says they're hunt
ing for buyers for' the three big
cars at .the penitentiary. He
knows that a Ford can be 1 op
erated cheaper' than av Hudson
Six, and he offering somebody
a bargain in big -cars.
