Community Cooperation
(ÜlarkattutH NfUlñ
Devoted to the Interests of Eastern Clackamas County
V olume 14,
N umber 10
As was announced last week,
a community service has been
arranged for Thanksgiving day,
in the High School auditorium,
commencing at 10:30 a. m. It
will be of a very simple charac­
ter with short addresses by Mrs.
T. J. Reagan, Mrs. Ida Holder
and Prof. F. E. Burns. Several
patriotic songs will be sung by
the audience and the offering
devoted to the Literary Digest’s
fund for the starving children of
Europe, to which President­
elect Harding has contributed
$2,500. The auditorium should
be filled to its utmost capacity
on such an occasion, when we
are called to worship and give
thanks by the chief executives
of the nation and state as well
as by the Church. Three hun­
dred years ago the Pilgrim
fathers knelt on a barren rocky
shore, not knowing what the
future had for them, yet they
were thankful for having been
preserved on the great deep and
brought to the haven where they
would be. What would they
think of those who having en­
tered into their labors and en­
joying a harvest bevond their
keenest imaginations, fail to
publicly make acknowledgement
to Him who has prospered them
above all peoples of the earth?
C om m unity Club
The club will meet in the Odd
Fellows hall Friday evening.
An interesting time will be as­
sured and matters pertaining to
the welfare of the town and vi­
cinity will be discussed. J. W.
Brewer, Field Secretary of the
State Chamber of Commerce,
has promised to attend and
make an address. All members
should be present.
A friend in New York City
sent Mrs. Upton H. Gibbs some
especially fine Italian chesnuts
for the dressing in her Thanks­
giving turkey. Needless to sav
the turkey will taste extra good
for this addition.

Mr. Dunlop has made many
friends during the two years he

church, by the kindliness of his
disposition, and they will all ex­
tend the sincerest sympathy to
him and his family, and hope
that the disease may be checked
