' The cry of the times, "unite"
and "co-operate," has finally
reached the farmer, and as a
flame'is reaching the sweeping;
the whole wide country-side.
Unjust discrimination through
ignorance of the needs of fann-
1 ers as a whole is threatening the
life of one of the basic industries
of the nation, and where the in
dividual is powerless to protect
himself alone, by uniting with
his fellow-farmers he seeks pro
tection and advancement, just
as other industries" have sought
and found relief under like con
ditidn. When a meeting; was called
the first of December at the
Derthick school house to consid
er plans, for co-operation in this
part of the country, fifty-one
men joined in forming the "Uni
versal Farmer's Union," with
Chas. Crofoot, president; Job
Crabtree, vice-president; Lester
McCorkle, secretary, and already
the membership is increasingly
leaps and bounds. When Jack
Kelly and Ruf McCorkle return
ed from the wheat growers
meeting held in The Dalles Sat
urday last, with their report to
our union, they also brought
word that Columbia Union,
Wrentham, had challenged us to
a membership contest, to last
till the 31st of March; loser to
furnish an oyster supper to the
winning Union, their wives and
families. Its up to us. Let's
win the supper. Also, and more
to the business point, which
really comes first, let's put the
"Universal" Farmer's Union on
the map. One handled fifty
members by the last of March.
All farmers are cordially invited
to come and help us make this a
grand success, for the upbuilding
and protection of the. farming
interests of Southern Wasco
County. Business first and a
little pleasure mixed in.

HEALTH CENTERS AID
Home Service Work Broadens
to Include Civilian
By PR. J. K. CRICHTOV
lUarinsrer Northwestern Division
Amerhun Ited Crows
An integral part ot the groat health
program of the American Rod Cross,
undertaken aftrr the suspension of
many of the war activities of the or
ganization, is the establishment of
Health Centers which now are being
installed in many communities
throughout tire northwest. It is a
movement of compelling interest to
the citizens of this part of the country.
The health center as organized by
the Red Ci-oss is proving the greatest
preventive medicine known, as well a?
protection of great value in tm"s of
widespread illness or epidemic. From
health centeis radiate ail kinds of
healthful influence's from th9 giving
of proper advice and the furnishing ct
competent nursing, medical and sur
gical aid, to the inauguration of many
forms of beneficial exerclsss such as
community singing, athletics and out
doer games. From health centers go
the visiting nurses. There are held
the teaching classes for home nursing,
children'? clinics and proper welfare
The Red Cross says that no longer,
hall curable physical deformities
curse the lives of our children. It
believes the time is past when tuber
culosis should be allowed without
hindrance to fasten itself upon the
tender bodies of our little ones. It
A EEDSIDE VISIT
Care of mot'.ier and babe is part of
the follow up work of the American
P.-i Cross health center at Rridge
tov, n, New Jersey. Miss Anna Miller,
home visiting v,:. from the health
center, Is reading a mother's tempera
ture. believes that through health centej-s
e?tahllnhed In every considerable
community throughout I he United
States, healthan be safeguarded and
therefrom greater happiness be
brought to our peopls.
Ignorance of diseases, Ignfrsnce as
to what are the best means to pursue
in combatting them, Ignorance as. to
the standing and competency of cer
tain medical men these to-lay are
responsible for a vast number of
deatl'S in the world. Quacks prey
upon our people with their glaring
and lying advertisements and in hun
dreds of thousands of cases Individ
uals absolutely deceived by their pre
tensions pass beyond the days when
their infirmities might be cured. For
these perils the Red Cross health
center forms a safeguard.
The health centers being established
become the people's clubs, with mem
berships designed to reach vast num
bers of the population since member
ship costs but $1 a year the annual
Red Cross dues.
Another phase of the peace-time pro
gram of the organization which rapid
ly is becoming of paramount value in
the northwest Is comprised in tho
Home Service activities. Designed
nriulnallv for the benefit solelv nf
I disabled service men and their fain
ilies, It has grown to occupy a far
broader tield. Hed Cross welfare
workers look to the Interests of for
mer soldiers and sailors in hospitals

tact with the disable! who are" sit.

Hut Home Service has grown be
yond this. In nearly 40 of the 106
I chapters of the Northwestern Division
experienced social workers are em
I ployed, and the service Is being ex
i tended to civilian families. In some
i chapters Information stations for the

In all its work preparatory to the

bet, has lsld stress on the point that
the. movement is purely a dues-gathering
activity, and not to be confused
with "drives" or other campaigns.
Th national body also is laying em
phasis on the fact that more than 60
per cent of all membership fees se

and on the low "overhead" cost of
