VERY INTERESTING CITY
ARDEN PARK CHILD
Mt. Scott W. C. T. U. held a most
successful and delightful banquet New
Year’a night. The long tables were
filled with members active and hungry,
with their families.
The decorations of the tables were
mounds of great ahining red apples,
gracefully arranged with Oregon wild
grape, both apples and green, products
of the beautiful Mt. Scott district. A
moat bountiful supper was served by a
bevy of lovely young ladies (members
of the society).
After the repast had been duly enjoy
ed, the president, Mrs. J. W, Wilkins,
as hostess, welcomed the banqueters,
and in a very happy vein introduced the
toastmaster. Rev. George Carr, who
bore off the laurels as a champion toast
master, with his witty incidents and
Rev. Peter Conklin was the first
speaker and made a stirring address,
full of eulogy for the organization, of
which he is a member He show«! con
clusively that the W. C. T. U. was a
power in aiding the church in bringing .
in a reign of righteousness. He set the J*
key note for the evening at concert
Mrs. Myra Smith, Lents’ woman
preacher, who is well known as an ora
tor, spoke on how the church could help
the W. C. T. U. She laid great em
phasis on prayer, next the Evangelistic
works is the back bone of the organ za-
tion. The church should co-ope ate
fully in such work, and third, she s «id
every church should read all W. C. T.
U. notices and keep before the people
what the organization is doing.
Mr. Raymond Beegle, spoke from a
layman’s standpoint, touched upon law
enforcement, backed by the W. C. T.
U., and earnestly portrayed the gigan
tic evil of the liquor trafic. Mr J A.
Dunbar spoke on Mt. Scott in 1913.
Education was his keynote. He first
«poke of the growth of this section, de
claring it to be the very best suburb of
greater Portland. He was optomistic
as to its future, but laid great stress on
the needed intelligence, and practical
education of the people with special
reference to the new citizens—women.
All the speakers touched on the new
Three little boys, splendid specimens
of young Americans, twin boys, from
Culver, Crook county, and the young
son of Dr. Hess, recited charmingly.
Lowell Bradford rendered a tine cornet
solo to the hearty appreciation of all.
Mrs. Additon was called on to sum up
the whole matter, and one by one she
gathered up the threads of the story as
told by the speakers proceeding her and
wove them together in a stirring appeal
for a crystalization of s-rmons. prayers,
arguments ¿nd tears into ballots at the
ballot box. She p'ead for parenthood,
culture and education, and not simply
motherhood Quoting Dr. Carlef Sales-
by, “Protection of parenthtxtd from
alchol is one of the most importan t
phases of the vital temperance reform.”
The entire program was received with
loud applause and each and every one
enjoyed every moment to the full. The
evening was all too short, anti as the
large audiance stood and sang “Blest
Be the Tie That Binds,’’ all 1 earts felt
a throb of gratification that “they all
belonged," and that such gatherings of
community interest should come often.
Clarence Clark, our enthusiastic
young prohibitionist, was time keeper
and performed his task as he does
everything—well.« New Year in Lents
has thus been ushered in most fittingly
and 1913 wi I be the greatest year Mt.
Scott ever saw.
