Mr. Ady made It plain that wo
men a duty is to oe actively inter
ested In our public affairs. There Is
so much doing where women's In- j
fluenco is needed. Khe has learned
that women will consider

consideration h'.s desire to be known
for hi shrewdness Instead of tl.o '

long been needed whcr she could j
have her Influence count for the good,
of tl e race. .
In regard to the delinquency of
children. Mrs. Ady said it was the I
parents' fault and nomn JudgeA are (
advocating the punishment of the I
parents for this too common 1

WHAT THE WAR C08T
OREGON SERVICE MEN
Junt wtat wa the unequal sacri
fice In dollars made by the Orgon
eg-scrrlce'roen who bore the brunt of
the war in order to kep a German
Indemnity of billions of dollars from
being levied upon the' country of
which Oregon would have had aer
eral hunder million dollars fto pay.
An emphatic summary of what 34,
500 men paid In defending Oregon
and America during the war is made
by Colonel George A. White. Adju
tant General of Oregon, In an article
on "Oregon's Part In the War," pub-
llahej by The Portland Oregonlan in
Its insure of May 8th.
This summary is an answer to
those who claim that the exservlco
men are asking too much in a bonus
law that will pay back LESS THAN
$2,000,000 In cash to ex-service men.
Oregon, In a few months of furious
warfare, paid more than ,1000 lives
Into the price of victory. Another
1000 struck down in battle survived
their wounds. Two hundred of that
1000 are permanently disabled. A
total of 344,500 men are under a
handicap of ten months loss of time
on an average. In the ceasless com
petitions of civil life. Even though
a maa left school for war service, he
was delayed Just that long In com
Tleting his education after the war
and entering productive life.
Attributing to each man an earning
lower of only $100 a month during
the average period of service, it takes
no expert mathematician to calculate
the axerage loss to each man or to
foot up the total sum paid by the
34.000 Oregonians who were In ser
vice. Simply add three ciphers to
tho total number of men, prefix a
dollar mark, interpose another comma
and you have the staggering totaL
Tris. In addition to the 1000 lives and
the 1000 mutilated bodies, was the
price they paid and paid cheerfully,
In keeping German victory indem
nity out of America.
