communities, in giving Oregon first
place on the National Honor Flag.
Oregon being the first state in the
union to reach its quota.
The following congratulatory tele­
gram was received Saturday from
L. J. Simpson, chairman Coos County

H C Dippel, Pearl Craine, W e | Elton R Edge, Alaska,
For the past two weeks the stud­
ents of the high school and grades
have been composing and delivering
Four Minute Talks on the Thrift and
War Savings Stamp campaign. These
talks are similar in nature and pur­
pose to those given by the govern­
ment “Four Minute Men” in theatres
all over the country. This work in
the schools not only gives the pupils
an opportunity to help in the patri­
otic service of the nation, but it also
gives them an opportunity to secure
the very best practical experience in
public speaking—speaking that is to
some definite purpose. In the higli
school, the pulls in the six English
classes all prepared and delivered
talks. After hearing all the talks,
the members of each class selected
one student to represent them be­
fore the high school student body.
Wednesday morning the six thus se­
lected—Randall Kay, Maggie Lewis.
Lillian Leuthold, Gladys Gallier, Ed­
na Dippel and Harry Watson—gave
their pleas for student support of
tlie government thru the purchase of
Thrift status. All were good, some
of them excellent illustrations of
“Four Minute Talks.” Miss Lewis
was awarded a certificate for highest
local honors, by the National com­
At the conclusion of the program,
the student body formed a War Sav­
ings Society, the members of which
take the following pledge: 1 hereby
apply for membership in the Bandon
High school War Savings Society and
pledge myself < 11 to systematic sav­
ing; (2) to refrain from unnecessary
expenditures and the purchase of non
essentials, in order that labor and
material now employed in tlie pro­
duction of articles not necessary to
my health and efficiency may be re­
leased for the production of those
articles and supplies which the U.
8. needs for the support of Its army
and navy; (3) to lend my earnest
efforts to encourage thrift and econ
omy in my community and to secure
other members for this society, and
i 4 > to Invest in United States Wat
Savings Stamps and Thrift Stamps,
and to encourage otherB to do so.
The society is somewhat similar to
the Two-Bit Club, except that each
student agrees to buy not a stamp
each day. but one thrift stamp at.
least every week or fortnight. The
following officers were elected
Leonard Hadsal, president; Gladys
Gallier, secretary; Gail Boak, Ran
dall Kay, Evelyn Pearce, George
Kronenberg. vice presidents.
These officers form a thrift cam­
paign committee, which will have
general direction of the thrift stamp
campaign among the high school
students, just as the county war sav­
ings committee has charge of the
work thruout the county. Already
7 4 pupils have signed the pledges
and joined the society, and nearly
all of the students will probably join
before the term is up.
The pupils in the grades are also
working on war savings talks and
forming thrift societies
Before the
week is over nearly all the rooms
win have societies of this nature.
Quite a little attention has been
devoted to a large new poster hang­
ing in the main hallway. This is a
water color thrift stamp poster de­
signed by one of the Junior girls,
Josephine Croxall. Two rooms went
over the top last week in the contest
to secure one hundred per cent stamp
They were Miss Hickey's
and Mrs Rea’s rooms—fifth and six­
th grade pupils A number of other
rooms are hoping to duplicate their
good work at an early date.
Armenian hiu I Syrian Relief Work
Would Be Easily Financed If AU
Were a* Liberal a* local Peuple-^
Fund Remains Open for Further
The following self explanatory
letter was received by Chairman 8.
C. Endicott of the local branch of the
Armenian and Syrian Relief, yester­
day. It comes from Ben Selling of
Portland, state treasurer of the or­
ganization :
“Please accept my sincere thanks
for your remittance of
which makes a total from Bandon
district of $1,000 40. Please add to
this the amount of $65.03, which was
sent from Bandon to the New York
office during December and January,
making a total of $1,065.43. ($10
from Union Thanksgiving service;
Church of God Sunday school, $2.80;
Methodist Sunday school, $7.28;
Presbyterian Sunda(y school, $45.)
If we had an honor flag to give to
the community that first goes over
the top in their county, that flag
would fly from Bandon, for while we
have received generous remittances
from other parts of the county, Ban­
don district Is the first to go over
the top.
“1 have been engaged in raising
money for charitable purposes for
many years, and I know that for a
community no larger than Bandon to
send this splendid sum. means that
some committee has given largely
of time and money, and that many
generous hearted people have ree­
ponded to their appeal.
thank them thru you in the name of
the one whom you call Master and I
call Brother.
At the close of the Portland cam­
paign, we received a letter from the
American committee saying they
wore ‘Inexpressibly delighted' with
the way the Oregon campaign was
being conducted. The Oregon com­
mittee can find no better words to
use in congratulating the workers of
Bandon on their splendid work.
”Wn have just received from the
statu department In Washington, l>y
way of our New York office, a most
moving appeal for additional funds
and along with It a statement of the
pathetic gratitude of the hundreds of
thousands of people who are befDg
saved from death by the effective­
ness of our rellof organization. It la
a satisfaction beyond words to real­
ize that we have already sent from
the state more than $120,000, and
reports received from various county
treasurers indicate that we shall soon
be able to send an additional $25,000
to them. We believe, when we have
secured final reports from every
county in the state, that Oregon will
be well over the top in the care of
the 2500 children that were assigned
to us.
’ May I ask that you will share
this letter with the others who work­
ed with you in this life-saving ser­
vice? Will you also express to as
many as possible of those who gave,
our gratitude, and say to them tbat
the fund will be kept open during
the war, and remlttancee may be
sent in anv time, and w-|ll be prompt­
ly forwarded.”
