Oregon State Chamber of Commerce
to advertise throughout the nation
the agricultural resources of Oregon,
F. S. Bramwell, vice-president and
general field agent et the organiza

state during the next 60 days. He
proposes placing before each county
court the proposition of obtaining
$1,000 from each county aa a nu

One of the big features to be used
In the advertlsiug campaign Is the
publication of a booklet, descriptive

county, In addition to newspaper and
fatm magazine advertising. : "
"We suggest that the county
courts call into conference the, peo

The ordlnaty iperson in reading of
this feature will not readily believe

or amendment to protect this coun

''Public sentiment Is growing dally
assuming the proportions ot a rev
olution," said Johnson. He spoke
of scenes at the peace table and said
the president got Just what every
man gets who plays another man's
game. "I do not question hls Inten

paved with good Intentions and this
country does not want to go there."

mind," continued Roosevelt "I
would exempt no young mau from

would recommend training or de

would be more so It conscription'
should draw men who already had
gone through a training period, mak
ing them more fit, more prepared.
. "How would I suggest handling
the compulsory training? If I bad
my way, I would handle it through
a general staff composed ot. one

employers of labor, one-fifth repre

"The national guard would be rep

would desire to keep in touch "with
military affairs when their compul

"I have found the sentiment for

still had under arms, 1,200,000 men.
