“Oregon’s State Fair for
1918 Over the Top”
The Fifty-Seventh annual Ore­
gon State Fair to be held in Salem
September 23-28 inclusive, prom­
ises to be the largest ever held.
It is going to be something unus­
ual and something you cannot af­
ford to miss. It will be enter­
taining, instructive and patriotic.
This latter feature is being em­
phasized in a great effort to as­
semble the finest agricultural,
horticultural and live stock dis­
play ever snown, with a view to
encouraging a greater production
of food, w'hich is already recog­
nized as our country’s second line
of defence in this world war.
Realizing that under the great
burdens and sorrows of wuir, en­
tertainment and recreation are
more necessary than ever before,
the government is spending mil­
lions of money to re-create the
bodies and minds of its soldiers.
The necessity for introducing an
uplifting mental stimulus at this
time among the civilian popula­
tion plunged into thevottexof
war work, is to be met at the
Oregon State Fair by a larger,
more comprehensive and finer

At the Loyalty League Rally
Masterly Address by
Dr. Milliken
Slackers Flayed by John W.
Loder Everyone Urged to
“Come Through”
A representative audience as­
sembled in the High School aud­
itorium last night for the Loyally
League rally.
The proceedings were opened
with the singing of the national
anthem and America, after which
the pledge to the flag was given.
Mayor Bartlett presided and as
the speakers from the county
seat were late in arriving, he
called for impromptu speeches.
These were made by Guy Gra­
ham of the class of 1914, now on
leave from Kelley Field Camp,
San Antonio, Texas: Prof. Guth­
rie now a Y. M. C. A. Secretary
at San Pedro, California; and W.
Givens. Their remarks were all
apt and to the point. By the
time these were over, the adver-
itsed speakers had arrived.
Dr. Milliken delivered a most
masterly address in which hi*
contrasted the two governments
of Germany and the U. S. A.
He analysed their respective con­
ceptions and principles and con­
sidered which would be the Let­
ter one for the world. He had
no difficnlty in settling this ques­
Attorney John W. Loder of
Oregon City followed Dr. Millikin,
who unmercifully held up the
slacker to scorn, unmasking his
camouflaged excuses. He show­
ed the nec-.isity of the draft to
mobilize democracy for the main­
tenance of its own principles.
He urged all to stand back of the
boys and not to put a stone in
the path of any one wanting to
enlist. We must all recognize
our personal obligation in thr
