calendar as Ash Wednesday,
which marks the beginning of
Lent. This is the great ecclesiaist-
ical penitential season, being
commemorative of the temptation
and forty days fast of Christ in
the wilderness. It is preparatory
to Easter and its last week,
known as Holy Week, commem­
orates the concluding events of
His Passion. This season ys very
ancient mention of it being found
as early as the second century.
Ash Wednesday is called so, be­
cause on it the penitents resorted
to church and sprinkled them­
selves With ashes in token of their
sorrow for their sins.

of other denominations, are vit­
ally interested in the Portland
world programme conference,

Portland nationally-known speak­

Tfie Methodist centenary pro­
gramme marks the beginning of
the aiter-the-war reconstruction
plan of the Methodist church,
while at the same time the rais­
ing of the gigantic centenary
fund as a celebration of the 100th
anniversary of the establishment
of Christian missions in America.
“The centenary is the beginning
of a great religious renaissance,
which so many people have an­
ticipated as a consequence of the
world war, ” declare leaders in the
“The centenary movement, the
greatest religious effort e v e r
made, will have the spirit of the
American ‘revival’, and something
of the fervor of the Crusades.”
At a meeting of the local paint­
ers’ union last Wednesday even­
ing, M. L. Shankland resigned as
delegate to the Central Labor
Council of Coos Bay. Mr. Shank­
land has held the office of vice
president in the central body
since it was organized. He has
been a leader who has always
stood for justice to all and will
be missed by the conservative
element of organized labor here.
Mr. Shankland states that he
intends also to resign from the
president’s chair of the painters’
local as he is leaving the Bay in
the near future to return to Port­
land, where he will probably go
into the 'contracting business.
Mr. Shankland was also a charter
member of the local painters’
union and has been president
since last June.

At present Mr. Shankland is
doing the inside painting and
varnishing of a residence which
will cost between $1500 and $2000
just for the inside finishing, im­
agine paying $200 per room.

Changes in business firm s
seem to be the order of the day
in Estacada, the latest being the
selling out of Walter Givens of
his interest in the Walter Givens
Co. to Lee S. Bronson and Milton
1). Evans.
The sale was con­
summated on Tuesday when the
new management took possession.
Thus closes the business career
of some years duration of Walter
Givens in this place, first as depot
agent and then as founder and
manager of the grocery and feed
business. During this time he
has been actively identified w'ith
the development of Estacada, in
whose welfare he took a warm
During the agitation
for the division of the county and
the creation of the proposed Cas­
cade county with Estacada as the
county seat, he was one of the
spell binders employed, for her is
a natural orator of a persuasive
and eloquent type. In addition
to his business interests he was
for some years pastor of the local
Christian Church, first as licent­
iate, and later having been or­
dained to the ministry, he preach­
ed at Kent in Sherman Co., to
which place he is going both as
pastor of the church and as man­
ager of the Kent Elevator Co.
He has also been connected as
school director, with the over­
sight of our schools and has al­
ways taken a great interest in
educational affairs.
Shortly before the armistice in
October he was appointed an
army chaplain at Camp Worden,
where he served so acceptably
that he was recommended for a
chaplaincy in the regular army.
Mrs. Givens has been promin­
ent in church, social and lodge
circles and during her husband’s
absence at Camp Worden man­
aged the business of the film.
Both she and Mr. Givens will be
greatly missed and the best w ish­
es the community will follow
them to their new home.
