W e Should do all Possible to
to Preserve this Immunity
Secure for all Time
Sunday afternoon the editor
and his wife were accorded a
great pleasure by their friends
Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Holder, who
took them out in their car to see
the surrounding country. First
however they were taken to the
Holder home, w'here tomatoes
are raised on a commercial scale.
The vines instead of being allow­
ed to run right along the ground,
are staked up so that the fruit
gets the full benefit of the sun,
which insures their rapid ripen­
ing and preserves them from the
black rot.
But those in the greenhouse
are the most remarkable as they
stand up higher than a tall man’s
head. The impression is given
the visitor of being in a grove of
tomatoes. An interesting fact
about these vines raised under
cover, is that they have to be
pollenized by hand with a brush,
as protected from the wind and
bees, the pollen is not otherwise
transferred from the male to the
female flower.
Not much space is devoted to
flowers, but in front of the house
there is a display which forms a
kaleidescope of colors, chief
among which are the flaming
scarlet plumes of a bed of Saivia
Bplendens, standing three feet
After viewing the home place,
they were taken out towards
George and through Garfield to
the Crawford ranch, with its
prune orchard and dryer.
It should serve as an inspiration
to an artist to see the rows of
vigorous trees, with their branch-

To the Young W om en
of Oregon
Presentation to
Pastor and His W ife
Just before I left Washington
a few days ago I was asked by
certain departments and bureaus
to place before the young women
of this and neighboring states,
the urgent need for women in
certain branches of Government
The head of the Army Nursing
School told me that the demand
for nurses is much greater than
can be supplied. Young women
who have completed the three
months preliminary n u r s i n g
courses are wanted at once at the
Cantonment hospitals. After re­
ceiving further training at these
hospitals they may serve as
trained nurses either in this
country or abroad.
The need for young women as
clerks and secretaries in the Civil
Service is acute. In accordance
with a direct request from the
Commissioner of Civil Service the
University is giving the full sec­
retarial courses.
The University is working in
full co-operation with the Com­
mittee of the American Council
on Education on the correlation
of women’s work in the colleges
with war needs.
If you have not already received
a copy of two illustrated bulletins,
“Oregon for Women” and “At
Oregon, a Story of Opportunity”
please write and they will be
sent at once, as also will the Un­
iversity Catalog.
At the close of the service on
Sunday morning, at the M. E.
Church Mrs. Reagan on behalf of
the congregation presented a
check representing a gratifying
sum, to the Rev. H. Spiess as a
token of their appreciation of his
services. At the same time Mrs.
Pym presented to Mrs. Spiess a
handsome sword fern in a beauti­
ful jardiniere, to which Mrs.
Spiess feelingly responded.
Bro. Spiess and his estimable
wife leave here accompanied by
with the best and most cordial
wishes from ail for their future.
It is satisfactory to learn that
the year closes with all obliga­
tions paid up.
Change of Tim e October 1st
Expert W orkmanship
Before another issue of the
News appears, the time will have
been changed. On October 1st
at one a. m. all clocks are to be
turned back one hour. It will be
more convenient to do this on re­
tiring on Monday nipht.
So do not forget to do this and
you will gain an extra hour in
bed the following morning.
This scheme for daylight sav­
ing during the summer months,
has worked very satisfactorily.
It has got the lazy man up at an
earlier and more suitable hour,
without his knowing it, and en­
abled workers to have an extra
hour of daylight to spend athome,
or to go for a ride after business
Nursing Examination
Last M onday Evening
Twenty members of the First
Aid class in nursing, took exam­
inât.on last Monday evening, at
the residence of Dr. Adix.
This was given by the Ameri­
can Red Cross. With this exam­
ination the course of instruction
The members of the class wish
to express their sincerest thanks
to Dr. Adix for his patience and
kindness in explaining to them
all about bandages, compresseses
and the like, also to Mrs. Adix
for her gracious hospitality and
the use of her home for these
S. P. Pesznecker, of the Cas­
cade Gai age is a man equal to
any emergency in his line. Last
week a bull wheel from a donkey
engine belonging to the Dwyer
logging camp, was brought in
for repairing. The wheel was
three feet in diameter and broken
in three places. Mr. Ppszriecker
welded the broken parts together
with oxygen-acetylene gas, and
turned out the wheel as good as
new. Estacada is fortunate in
having a mechanic of Mr. Pesz-
necker’s ability, so our car own­
ers need not go to Portland when
their machines are out of com­

Hon. G eorge C. Brownell of

W ere Kept Busy
The big rally on behalf the
Fourth Liberty Loan Saturday
night, was attended by an en­
thusiastic audience in the audi­
torium of the High School.
It began with a procession of
the mothers, wives and sisters of
the soldiers, who marched in
with banners flying. Mayor Bart-
tlett presided with his accustom­
ed dignified ability and after a
short musical program of patrio­
tic songs had been rendered,
opened the meeting and intro­
duced the speaker of the evening,
the Hon. George C. Brownell of
Mr. Brownell speech was a mas­
terly exposition of the basic prin­
ciples of carrying on the war, as
shown by ihe German method
and that of the American. Ger­
many had conducted it on a basis
of hatred manifested by brutali­
ty and ferocity, in the rape of
Belgium; in her treatment of the
inhabitants of conquered terri­
tory; in her inhumanity towards
the prisoners and wounded win»
had fallen into her hands; in her
bombing of hospitals and the
ruthless submarining of mer­
chant vessels and hospital ships.
On the other hand Americans
manifested love, in their extend­
ing relief to the Belgians and al­
lies; in their treatment of the
wounded both friend and foe re­
ceiving the same tender care.
America was not in the war to
enrich herself but to benefit hu­
manity; he closed with a power­
ful plea for a liberal response to
the call for liberty bonds.
