ed and it all comes back to the great
national need for millions of tons of
shipping—the urgent requirement of
the hour is ships, ships, ships.
The campaign of the Portland
Chamber of Commerce is for ten
thousand men to work summer and
winter, day and night, in the ship
yards to build steel and wooden ships.
Ships are the great national need
for our country and the allies and any
man who can wield a hammer or a
saw can serve his country in the ship
yards as effectively as in the trenches.

The main thing and the su
premely vital thing is for the great
body of American people to lend to
their government another very large

There is only one way this thing

larger scale than any other allied

For instance, the cost of our first

We cannot stop

the first loan will subscribe the sec

this because they must.
Conserved to Perfection.
Conservation in the United States
is a complete success. The coal of
Alaska is so carefully conserved that
the Pacific coast ports, where it is
needed, cannot get it. Pacific coast
people might use water power in place
of the coal which they cannot get, but
that, too, is admirably conserved, says
the Portland Oregonian.
might use much more oil as fuel than
is now used, and might get it cheap
er, but all the oil on government land
is also conserved. The government
itself needs that oil for use on its
warships and on the freight ships
which it is building, or in the shape of
gasoline on the auto trucks, moto
boats and aircraft which are to fight
in the war zones, but it cannot get its
own oil. The nation needs to increase
food production, phosphate would help
amazingly, and the govc;nment owns
great beds of phosphates, but they,
too, are conserved.
The government is in the ludicrous
position of a man who has locked a
large fortune in a fireproof, burglar
proof safe and then has lost the com
He is absolutely secure
from fire and robbery, but he cannot
get any benefit from his own wealth.
It is equally safe from his spendthrift
proclivities. The only satisfaction ho
derives from his ownership is the
knowledge that it is in that safe, and
that, though he cannot get at it, no
other person can.
This is the finest tribute which
could be possibly be offered to Giflord
Pinchot as the conserver of our na
tional resources. It might be added
that due to these policies a fuel fam
ine is staring the nation in the face.—

Her Condoned Sin.
“ Intolerance” and “ The Birth of a
Nation,” D. W. Griffith’s world-famous
photoplays, were longer, but they were
no better, according to scores of crit
ics, than this master producer’s spec
tacular, soul-stirring, six-act wonder
drama, “ Her Condoned Sin.” which
will be the feature attraction at the
Scenic Theatre on Monday, August 27.
Never in the history of the silent
drama has such a wonderful cast of
players been assembled as in “ Her
Condoned Sin.” The stars are Mae
Marsh, Blanche Sweet, Dorothy and
Lillian Gish, Robert Harron and Hen
ry B. Walthall.
The story is especially interesting
right now, as the action of this won
derful drama all centers about the
choice made by a beautiful girl be
tween her lover and the safety of her
nation. She undergoes a terrific emc-
tional struggle and eventually sacri
fices her lover that her people may
live. Rarely is such remarkably fine
photography seen in any production
as in “ Her Condoned Sin,” a picture
which must stand for years to come as
one of the screen’s greatest classics.
More than 11,000 people were used in
some of the battle scenes and the same
lavish scale was followed in every de
tail of this picture.
