..jllygleno and self-respect go pretty
much hand In hand. To command
men, a general must first command
himself, and ho cannot do that unless
ho has. full possession of his self
respect -and dignity, in connection
with which a fit, healthy body is a
very Important consideration.
One of tho reasons why Pershing
has such n strong hold upon the ro-
euect, lore and admiration of his
troops, as wn as of tho wholo
American people, Is found In his per
sonal dignity and physical fitness. As
a reporter from the war xono has ex
pressed lt "h looks right."
Ho Is 55 years old. Ills position
of command In Franco tells Its own
story of, his sound physical condition.
Ho would 'not bu there if ho had any
organic disturbances. When the
army .medical examiners aro obliged
to rojocl for physical disability near
ly on t third of all the rogtstrants be
tween tho ages of 21 and 31, Per
ahlngVcxamplo of sterling health at
55 Shines out like a beacon of re
Pershing exorclscj. Somo one has
whispered It down tho lino that ho
wears Very light underclothing In
winter as' well as In summer, and
that ha keeps his blood moving and
hi muscles In fine fighting trim by
running and setting-up exercises.
How many business or professional
men in Bend go through such exor-
cfeh asa ddiiy, routine, self-respecting
tlutyt How many women? Need
brio ask why there aro so few hard,
keen, physically sound Pershlngs in
tho civilian ranks of 55?
A writer who was telling about the
extraordinary fighting spirit of the
Canadians aga'nst great odds said
that when they ara in the trenches
they shave every day. "Let that
sink In,". ho added. This Is demand
ed of them, In spite of their fatigue
and hardship, because their com
mander knows what Pershing knows.
and what every man should know,
thatch o eean man is more courage
ous than the dirty man; ho is more
righteous in his respect for himself
and what he is fighting for. He is
also'-'moro 'courageous because bo
feels healthier. Pershing takes a cold
bath every clay, winter or summer.
In describing his looks, a recent In
terviewer in France said that his ap
pearance Ib "crisp with Immaculate
Hygiene is a baste element in
morale. The man who Is clean,
whoso heart is bounding with health
ful exercise and whose muscles are
tingling with good health, Is not tho
man who is discouraged. Hygienic
habits are the natural malfestatlon
of a clean mind, a clear conscience
and a righteous aim in life.

LABOR PLANS HOLIDAY
Labor day la to havo a special nig
ntucnnco'thls year, for tho power of
orgnnlted labor has mndo Itself mani
fest In tho essential work of tho war,
and Prctddout Samuol Gompors of tho
Amorlc.in Federation of Lnlwr has
sent out stntciuonts to unions in
ovory part of tho country urging a
special colobratlon of lnbor's holiday
this yon1, having as Its koynoto "Win
tho War for Freedom."
Last year's Labor day colobrnllon
was, In gonoral. solemn and serious.

It will bo even moro so this year, but
President Gompors calls upon union
labor ovorywhoro to-engage In great
public demonstrations attesting to
labor's nbsoluto Idyalty in tho wnr.
Thoro aro now, according to tho
figures of tho American Federation
of Labof, about 3,000,000 union men
on tho rolls of that organization,
about 3 per cent, of tho -population
dt tho country. It Is expoctcd that
great mass meetings nnd tho usual

LIBERTY LOAN INTEREST RATE.
Secretary McAdoo has definitely
announced that tho fourth Liberty
loan bonds will bear 4 M per cent,
Tho secretary has been insistent
that the government interest rate
should bo stabilized at 4 V per cent.
He points out that a raise in the rate
of Interest of only one-fourth of 1
per cent, on 110,000,000,000 of gov
ernment bunds would mean an an
nual increase of 125,000,000 in Inter
est charges, and that this money
would have to bo raised by increased
taxation and paid by the people ot
the country. It would not be paid
by ono class only, because there aro
consumption as well as other kinds
of taxes, and the consumption taxes
reach every class of people.
"As an Intelligent people," said
Secretary McAdoo during the third
Liberty loan campaign, "wo should
now make a stand for the financing
of our government during tho period
of this war at a stabilized rata of in
terest, say at 4 V per cent, per an
num, so that all business and all in
vestments may be adjusted to that
basis, and so that wo ourselves may
protect ourselves against successive
ly increased rates of Interest on gov
Neither our patriotism nor our
support of tho Liberty loans aro
measured in fractions of per cent.

Tho yelling varmint broke loose
again jast Monday morning, making
so much outcry that even tho Rev.

Wlest's, got, out to pursuo the beast.
However, just as tho pursuit com
menced the cry ceased and It was
Impossible to locate the exact spot
from which It proceeded. Not to be
defrauded, the reverend gentleman
went to look after a trap Mr. WIest
had set for a coyote. Ho found It
occupied. But Instead of a snapping,
snarling coyote a poor, wandering
badger held tho trap, which had
caught him by three legs. The ani
mal was slain and tho menaco to
chickens reduced that much. A
coyoto walked down Wall street
Monday morning about 9 o'clock, but
took troublo to get out of the way
before a gun could bo found.

The stato school for tho feeble
