All teachers in Oregon will hereafter
be required, when signing their con
tracts to subscribe to the oath of alle-
giance to the government of the United
States as a part of their contract.
Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion, J. A. Churchill has prepared a
new form of contract and has incorpo
rated as one of the provisions an oath
similar in form to that required of all
government officials. In speaking of
this contract, Superintendent Churchill
said: "The teachers of Oregon as a
body are doing an immense amount of
patriotic work. They have assisted
the government materially in the
Hoover pledge card campaign, in the
thrift stamp sales, in the Liberty loan
campaigns, in the clerical work of
classifying the registrants, and in
general by arousing every home repre
sented in the public schools of this
state to deeds of self-sacrifice and pat
riotism. Unfortunately throughout the
state, there have been two or three
unpatriotic teachers, and before they
could be removed their influence has
to a certain extent discredited the
work of their associates. Through
this loyalty oath it is hoped that the
employment of disloyal teachers may
be effectually checked."

structed to prepare such schedules of
wage increases as they deemed neces
sary and present them for further con
sideration of the board at a special
meeting called for this week. The
increases which will bring the pro
posed by these superintendents will
bring the total up to several thousands
of dollars more annually.
The Astoria school district will hold

M. N. Crow, of Roseburg, was sen

allotment of 112,200 bags, applications
asked 1,662,130. A pro rata increase

gave Walla Walla 148,548 for distribu
tion. This means that Walla Walla

one bag out of every 15 sought.
Whitman county got 24 percent.
Her allotment was 916,700, and this
was increased to 212,930, while appli

Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly compound

lustre to the hair when faded, streak

to get this mixture was to make it at
home, which Is mussy and trouble

drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sul

bottle of this famous old recipe, Im
proved by the addition of other In

can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, as It does It so naturally

strand at a time; by morning the gray
hair disappears, and after another ap
plication or two, your hair become:
beautifully dark, glossy and attractive.
