TUST completed is the state convention of American War
J Mothers which attracted, the attention of a large group
of those matrons, who know in full the meaning of Armis
tice day. ' Mothers they were who sat Thursday and Friday
in the Masonic temple in serious deliberation of what they
could do to assist in this problems which are inviting the at
tention of. the United States today; of problems which come
. so directly from those days out of which was created Armis
tice day, the American War Mothers, and any number of
other organizations participated in by women as well as by
t menJ';'';-:,.;.-i ; -' .'. , ' ' ...
' ' , Gray haired mothers they were who met in mutual
sympathy.of the day to be celebrated Wednesday with much
excitement in general, and : in particular with solemn
thought. .
' In memory society women will recall the excitement of
those pre-armistice days of entertaining and then will recall
with most of the men gone how all settled down to knit and
sew and work in Red Cross, canteen, Y. M. C. A. and aU the
other, niches into which a woman could fit in those'' dif
ficult, times.
' Thoughts of clothes and formal parties flitted away in
'presence of. the awesome facts of war, and it is only recent
lyafter l3 long years that the frills and foibles of social
life have dared to raise their heads and be received.- f?
In compliment to the mothers of. the land who look back
:,with blended" sympathy on the day 13 years ago when emo
;,at peace we present a group of active War Mothers.
i! ; Mrs. Emelie' Hendricks, center, was the first American
War Mother president of the Oregon organization. She was
appointed by Gov. Withycombe in 1917 and served as presi

Salem Society
THE banner of society is being flown under that of char
ity work to a large degree these days and as the winter
comes on this alliance will increase.
. The Red Cross is occupying the attention of a large
number of Salem matrons prominent in the busy society
circles of the city. Mrs. Curtis Cross and Mrs. Fritz Slade
Wether with-large commit- ; ; j
tees are busy with meetings
getting plans marshaled
which will enable the Red
Cross to become a part of Salem
through Salem becoming mem
bers of the Red Cross. The com
mittees are working on member
ships. A small sum makes a per
son a member of this organiza
tion which will in turn use the
money in every ay possible to
aid the needy in Salem. - This aid
does not only come to those who
are temporarily embarrassed this
winter .bat- it continues its aid
-f throughout the. year helping in J
any emergency and paying , more
attention to helping "people help
themselves" than to s actually . re
lieving Immediate want and- then
forgetting about tbem.
Another organization busy ow
with charity plans is the Elks
lodge. This organization is ap
pealing to the society of the city
by arranging a series of card
parties to be held on Monday
nights in the Elks temple. These
parties have been sponsored in
years gone by and have proved a
popnlar way to let the city aid
its needy, and at the same time
entertain Itself.
Stepping out of Salem a bit
but still talking about something
that any number of people will
be Interested in and will attend
there is the annual military ball
which will be given this year in
Portland November 27. Among
the patronesses and patrons of
the ball are General and Mrs.
George A. White ot Salem.
The proceeds of the ball this
year will go to charity, a new
thing for this organisation, but
one in line with the present at
titude of society this winter.
Another thing occupying the
minds of many women of Salem
and district three of the national
federation of women's clubs of
Oregon will be the Marlon coun
ty Institute to be held at the
Woman's clubhonse Saturday.
Mrs. Sadie Orr Dunbar and Mrs.
G. Buland of Portland will be
special guests at this time and
will appear on the program which
will have to do with the depart
ment of public welfare.
A large group of the younger
set will be Interested in the
plans for a big high school dance
to be given Friday at the Illahee
clubhouse. Parties and dinners
and clubs will also go aleng with
the week's - progress, perhaps
more than the ordinary number
or them because or the Armistice
holiday and its celebrations.

An assisting artist for the con- -cert
will be Miss Barbara Thome,
soprano. - Miss Thome won the
state. Atwater Kent contest this
tall and her appearance here
promises a splendid musical pre
sentation. Membership in the orchestra
has grown steadily during the
fall months, but there is still a
need for further assistance if the
growth of the orchestra itself is
to be satisfactory. There is still
need for many more sustaining
memberships in order that the
work of tbe symphony may go on
with the freedom necessary for its
musical development.
