Last Sunday was patriotic Sunday
throughout the Nation and the evening
service at the Methodist church was
given over to a great, rally, at which
time addresses were' made by Mrs. Dr,
George Rebec of the Oregon University
on behalf of the National woman's
committee of the Liberty loan and by
Dr. J. H. Gilbert of the University on

lost their homes and their all stand
between us and freedom and the least
we can do Is to give of our money and
stand firmly behind the trenches.
In opening his address Dr. James H.
Gilbert paid a high tribute to President
Wilson and showed the awful carnality
of the kaiser.
Why should we worry about the
kind of a government; the German peo
ple have except to insist that every!
nation should have the privilege of
governing-themselves. Germany stands
aloof from the other governments of
the world as an outcast and the Kaiser
has the power to say what shall be
done without consulting the people. It
Is therefore a concern td you and to
Be when one man can open thevgafW
Tt hell and thrust the world into -war.
The German military power argues
feat war is not a curse but a blessing.
That war is necessary to up build the
atlon and to build up the avenues of
commerce -for business purposes and
to collonize her subjects. Then if war
Is a blessing why should we do away
Dr. Gilbert explained the German
military training and military prepared
ness and told of their activities in
building ships and equipping armies.

keep a steady stream of essential sup

long as. it shall be necessary to wage
this war. If at any time we fall in
this, we must inevitably go down, with
the allies, to defeat This is no ex
aggeration, but1 a serious fact It Is
the purpose of the United States Food
Administration to bring the realiza

less, omit the crackers with your soup,

exhausted people of BU&lim, France

in mind, and bring it before the minds

Potatoes for Patriotism.
By eating potatoes Instead of wheat
the people of the United States can I
help win the war. We have not1
enough wheat for the Allies and our
selves. We have an abundance of po
tatoes. Wheat flour Is a concentrated
food and therefore good for shipping;
potatoes are bulky and are conse
quently, not suited for, limited shipping
space, nor are the Allies so short of
potatoes as of wheat Next to cereals,
potatoes have been in this country
