Held Immediate.
Miss LUlie Allinger Relates High
lights of Visit to Interesting
Places in Europe.
A travelogue by Miss Lillie Allin
ger, cashier of Farmers and Stock
growers National bank, who made a
tour in Europe last Bummer, fea
tured the Lions club meeting Mon
day. The emergency Red Cross
drive with Morrow county's quota
set at $400 was endorsed by the
club with proffer of assistance ten
dered the local chapter in helping
raise the money. The emergency
call, totalling $10,000,000, was made
by President Hoover to relieve im
mediate suffering in the drouth
stricken areas of the United States.
An invitation from the Umatilla
Wallula Cut-Off association, for the
club to have representation at a
meeting of the association in Walla
Walla on January 28, was read and
referred to the road committee to
report back at the club meeting
next Monday.
The club's action on the Red
Cross drive was taken after a pre
vailing expression of opinion that
the need for immediate relief in the
drouth-stricken areas seemed appar
ent, and that people should not be
allowed to starve awaiting relief
from slow-moving governmental
Strong for America.
Miss Allinger gave an interesting
20-minute talk touching some or the
high Spots of her European trip
which took her to Berlin as a dele
gate to the international convention
of Christian Endeavor last summer.
In introducing her talk she said, "I
returned from Europe a 500 percent
American. When I left I was just
an ordinary American." While
fascinating, Europe had been lived
in too long, everything appeared too
tame, and many American conven
iences were lacking, she said. Most
Impressive were the battlefields of
France. And here again America
showed the most progressive by the
manner in which its cemeteries are
maintained. White marble crosses
mark graves of the American war
dead; grounds are neatly kept, and
soldiers are in constant supervision.
The battlefields have been rapidly
reclaimed, and everything is beau
tiful. Trees alone, which are small,
give evidence of the recent destruc
tion there.
"If everyone could visit these bat
tlefields and gain from it the same
impression our party got, it would
be a great Indictment against war,"
Miss Allinger said.
Passion Play Seen.
Many spots of historic and scenic
Interest were visited, among which
glimpses were given of London Tow
er, Cologne and Rhelms cathedrals,
Amsterdam, Munich, Lucerne and
the Louvre and other bits of Paris.
Oberammergau was visited and the
Passion Play witnessed in an aud
ience in which the Prince of Wales,
Premier MacDonald and other not
ed people took seats beside those of
lesser fame.
Lions listened attentively to Miss
Alinger's talk, and enjoyed occasion
al anecdotes of amusing incidents,
such as the difficulty once encoun
tered in ordering a meal in a Ger
man restaurant from a menu which
She presented for perusal of her
auditors, printed in German. She
also handed about . some pictures
she had taken at various spots of
There was a large attendance at

were Joel R. Bennett, Christian

Banquet, Program and Dance En
joyed at Parish House; S. E.
Noteon Gives Address.
The banquet and party held at
the Parish House Monday evening
at the culmination of the recent
American Legion membership con
test, was' attended by 120 Legion
naires and their ladies and Auxil
iary members and escorts. The ban
quet, prepared and served by mem
bers of the losing team, was follow
ed by a short musical and speaking
program. The musical numbers in
cluded solos by Miss Charlotte
Woods, Harvey Miller and Ben
Chrisman and musical readings by
Miss Helen Falconer.
Speakers were Chas. W. Smith,
district commander, S. E. Notson,
district attorney, Loyal Parker and
D. E. Hudson. Mr. Smith told of
some of the objects of the state de
partment for the year, compliment
ed the Auxiliary for its extensive
work with the disabled service men,
and stressed the importance of full
membership in the Legion in ordeB
to secure for the disabled men the
benefits to which they are justly en
titled. In a stirring address Mr. Notson
called attention to some of the prob
lems facing this country at the
present time, stating that it would
depend largely upon the men who
saw service in the great war to
find the proper solution. Respect
for the flag, proper preparedness
as the best means to secure per
manent peace, and patriotic edu
cation were urged by the speaker.
Mr. Parker told briefly how his
side came out victorious in the con
test and Mr. Hudson explained why
his side didn't. J. D. Cash, com
mander of Heppner post, presided.
The main entertainment feature
of the evening was the traffic dance,
and the presence of "stop," "no
parking," "one way traffic" and oth
er signs, combined with the large
number of speed cops and traflic
officers gave everyone a hilarious

O.S.C. Leader Says Eggs Are Help
ful In Baby's Diet; Rich in Pro
tein, Good Meat Substitute.
Eggs are among the most valu
able, and at the present time, most
economical articles of the American
diet, says Miss Clarlbet Nye, state
leader of the home economics divis
ion of the Oregon Extension serviie.
Because of their high food value
and easy digestibility when properly
cooked, eggs are one of the first
foods to supplement the mother's
milk in a baby's diet They are
among the richest sources of iron
in human food, and also contain
phosphorus and calcium in usable
forms, Miss Nye points out, all of
which minerals are vital to the
growth and development of the
Eggs are also rich in protein, a
substance needed for the growth
and repair of muscle, bone and
blood. They are wisely used as a
substitute for meat in the daily
menu occasionally, because In addi
tion to furnishing the protein found
in meat, they also supply the vita
mins, which are lacking in meat,
says Miss Nye. At present they are
more economical than any but the
cheapest cuts of meat
There are numerous attractive
ways of serving eggs, either alone
or in combination with other foods,
says Miss Nye, but their palatability
as well as their healthfulness de
pends largely upon the care with
which they are cooked. The chief
point to remember in this connec
tion, she explains, is that eggs, or
any food containing eggs must be
cooked at a low temperature. Cook
ing too fast or at too high a tem
perature tughens the eggs, or where
they are being cooked in combina
tion with a liquid, causes the mix
ture to curdle.
A number of standard egg recipes
with variations have been compiled
by the home economics department
in Home Economics Circular 118,
and are now available for distribu
tion to Oregon homemakers, says
Miss Nye.
