Membership in Red Cross is dem
ocratic and universal.
Greatest emphasis is being laid
on $1 membership.
Wearing Red Cross 1919 button
is an evidence of loyalty and proof
of membership.
"Strong-arm" solicitation is abso
lutely barred.
Aim To enroll every man, wo
man and child in Umatilla county.
AH the people of Oregon will be
asked to join the Red Cross or to
renew their membership during the
Christmas Roll Call, which will be
held the week before Christmas
December 16-23.
Membership in the Red Cross
costs $1 a year.
There will be no receipts given
this year, the proof of membership
being the signing of the Red Cross
Roll and the wearing of the 1919
Red Cross leaders wish every
wearer of a Red Cross 1919 button
to ask every non-wearer: "Where's
your button?"
There are more than 248,000 Red
Cross members in Oregon. Every
one, it is expected, will renew mem
bership while it is hoped to add
100,000 new members.
Because of the campaign there
will be no public sale of Christmas
seals this year. Instead, every Red
Cross member will be given ten of
the seals, while $2,500,000 will be
devoted by the American Red Cross
for the 1919 tuberculosis work of
the National Tuberculosis associa
tion, this being about the total of
the sale of Christmas seals last year.
President Wilson has sounded the
the campaign keynote with his "I
summon you to the comradeship"
The campaign slogan is the single
word: "Join."
Oregon has the cleanest young
men, morally, of any state in the
Union, according to army statistics
furnished the Oregon Social Hygi
ene Society from government sourc
es. Of Oregon recruits arriving
at the several army camps, only
fifty-nine hundredths of one percent
were found to be afflicted with ven-
Say, friend! You are thinking of getting a car
in the spring; but why wait until you really need a
car until you order? Now is the proper time to put
in your order. Let me show you my line of cars. I
have twenty-eight different models to select from. Remember, it takes from
four to six weeks to get cars from the factory: There will be no change m

Certain' Republican leaders in
Congress have been doing their
best to convince the country that
President Wilson knew what he was
about in asking for the election of
a Democratic majority in that
They have criticised his admira
ble message when they and the
country know full well they would
have praised it to the skies had it
come from a Republican president.
They have condemned him for
going abroad to the peace confer
ence when they and the country
know full well that such a course
was urged by our allies ami was
practically unavoidable in view of
the world position the United
States has assumed.
They know and the country
knows that were Wilson a Repub
lican they would lay not a stone in
his path.
They have sneered at President
Wilson for frankly submitting the
railroad problem without a definite
program, when they know and the
country knows that bad he outlined
a policy they would have accused
him of trying to assume the role
of dictator in peace times and of
usurping the congressional prerog
ative. In brief, these purblind and bit
ter partizans are seeking in every
way to hamstring and cripple the
Administration merely because it
happens to be a Democratic admin
istration. The country's good is to
them a matter of no concern.
Uncle Joe Cannon, whose vision
has broadened with age, differs
from his fatuous colleagues. He
"I was pleased with the message.
It followed the constitutional plan
of giving to the Congress informa
tion of the state of the Union, and
left the information with orders for
it to consider in connection with
its legislative duties."
This is, a just and rational view.
The Morning Oregonian also finds
in the message much to admirt
which reminds us that this formerly
uncompromising Republican organ
has been commendably broad-minded
throughout the war, in its edit
orial expressions.

One of the largest tleals ever
consummated in Weston lnd has
just leen completed by Hey Winn
and Marion llanscll. well known
throughout the countryside as
among its most substantial and
successful fanners. Mr. Hansoll
buys from Mr. Winn the Moses
Taylor place, containing C00 acres
of choice land which he has been
handling under lease. He also
leases from Mr. Winn for a term of
six years the Mcadowbrook farm
on Pine creek below town, contain
ing 673 acres. The consideration
covering both transactions is re
ported to have been $157,000.
Mr. Winn retains for his own use
a Rouse and garden ground on
Mcadowbrook farm, and will tem
porarily retire from the wheat
growing activities he has followed
for 35 years.
Rejoicing at The Front.
The first soldier letter received
here since the German surrender
come from Sergeant Sidney A.
Barnes, and is dated Somewhere in
France, November 12. He says:
"I don't feel much like writing
today, but certainly cannot let this
day pass without a line or two.
Last night was one of the wildest
nights recorded in my experience.
The French were nearly crazy with
joy and the Americans almost as
bed. The program started with-
bunch of mad frogs parading on
the parade ground right after re
treat. The band played The Mar
sellaise and the Star Spangled Ban
ner. After supper all the soldiers
went to town to complete the cele
bration. The French joined hands
and danced around each other and
the Yank., by the light of bonfires.
Everylmdy had a flag and cheered
for Wilson. Clemenceau, Poincaire,
Foch. Pershing, King George and
the bunch.
"And today the old grind con
tinues. I certainly hope that Ger

days allotted. We've got no idea
what part we take in the last act,
but all are willing to do their bit
until the last bit is done - happy in
the knowledge that the fighting is
suspended and the Allies are hold

all be perfectly happy, but think
how much more so the French must

The application of the Astoria water
commission for the appropriation of
16 second feet of water from Big creek

proved by Stats Engineer Percy A.

this supply until additional water for
