SAYS MUST TAKE COATS
OFF TO TIE FUTURE
That Bolshevism, which but a
few months ago was a hideous dream
of far away Russia, is considered a
present, living reality in this coun
try and In Portland and a factor to
be dealt with In the great new era Is
shown by the fact that this symbol
Ism of social unrest Is mentioned
again and again like an ever recur
ring theme In the talks delivered by
the nationally known speakers who
have appeared at the two days' ses
sion which has launched the New
Era movement of the Presbyterian
church In Portland.
"We may take off our hats to the
past, - bnt we've got to take off our
coats to the future," said W. E. Bie
derwolf, of Chicago, secretary of the
Family Altar league this morning.
"We will never get rid of anarchy
and Bolshevism, divorce and gamb
ling until we push the forces of onr
endeavor across the threshold of the
home. We can't mobilize the church
against these forces properly and ef
ficiently until we first mobilize the
In urging the observance of fam
ily worship, he said that "we can no
- more expect a rose to blossom forth
from a covering of Ice than we can
except a holy life to emerge from
the conditions which surround , the
average American child."
"Do that community service most
needed, whether It be fighting the
Bolshevikl principles of anarchy.
fighting the spread of venereal di
sease, fighting for prohibition, for
clean streets or what not," la the ur
gent .plea made by Dr. A. W. Halsey
yesterday. "But while we do the
' 'natural' things let us not' lose our
faith In the supernatural. This
church will be false to Its mission If
It does not catch a vision of a pos
sible new world to emerge from the
present ship-wrecked' world. Think
of. the slumbering possibilities In the
peace conference now In progress. It
Is almost impossible to realize the
tremendous suffering the peoples of
, the world have gone through and
now face and in the words of Elihu
Root, the proposed league will have
the strength of straw unless based
upon the teaching of Christianity."
All FORMER DIRtCTORS
The Grants Pass Irrigation dis
trict has re-elected Chas. Smith, Geo,
A. Hamilton and O. U.elgh Ma di
rectors for the ensuing year. On

The Grauts Pass Irrigation dis
trict was organlied In 1917, and they
voted $290,000 bonds to be used In
building the system, which will In
all probability bo a gravity flow
This gravity system is calculated to
irrigate approximately 3.500 acres,
but it is the intention to add to It
later on by pumping from the first
ditch to a high line ditch, which
will give the district In the neigh
borhood of 5.000 or 6,000 acres
The company Is composed of about
100 owners who control In the ag
gregate about 8,000 acres.
The directors of this company
state that they will not try to "shoe
string" their proposition through
but will await until they can market
their bonds when they will put on
full steam ahead.
