Red Cross Wars on Carelessness
In Home or While at Work on Farm

THE American Red Cross is throw
ing the -weight of its entire or
ganization behind a continuing cam
paign to combat the negligence and
lack of knowledge in the home and
on the farm which last year claimed
nearly 40,000 lives and injured mil
lions. According to safety experts most
accidents can be prevented. Every
Red Cross Chapter and Branch will
play a part in this large-scale hu
manitarian operation, and have
mobilized to meet the challenge
flung by negligence, according to
Admiral Cary T. Grayson, Red Cross
placed, cripple thousands each year. Upper Right Pressing irons left on
hazard. Lower Incorrect handling of a knife may mean serious Injury.
Through an Intensive educational
program, the Red Cross will seek to
explode the fallacy that the home is
safe. Common and uncommon haz
ards will he pointed out; individual
families will be shown how these
hazards may be eliminated and in
struction will be given in the avoid
ance of unsafe habits and practices
apt to cause accidents.
Preparations have been made to
inspect more than 30,000,000 homes,
the inspection to be conducted by
home dwellers themselves. Through
the cooperation of educational
groups, the school child will take a
specially prepared i jpeclion form
into the home and Burvey it for haz
ards with the help of parent or rela
tive. Accidents in the homes of America
kill more than 80 persons an hour
each day, and run up a medical, nurs
ing and insurance bill exceeding
f 1,000 per minute. Farm work acci
dents last year took more than 4,000
lives and maimed many perma
nently. Accident prevention is a natural
outgrowth of Red Cross instruction
in first aid, a service initiated 25
years ago and responsible annually
for saving many lives and prevent
ing minor accidents from having
Higher Education Worth
Told by New Chancellor
University of Oregon, Eugene,
October 22. Oregon's higher edu
cational institutions represent an
actual resource worth $100,000,000,
from which the state is actually
benefitting every year to the extent
of at least $5,000,000, it was declared
here Saturday night by Dr. Fred
erick M. Hunter, chancellor of
higher education, speaking before
hundreds of "Oregon Dads" and
their sons and daughters, at the
ninth annual "Dad's Day" banquet
held In John Straub Memorial hall.
Dr. Hunter took as his topic, "Ed
ucation as a Resource."
Dr. Hunter arrived at his figures,
which he declared are conservative,
by citing a recent survey which
showed that college trained men
during the past few years have
earned 100 percent more than those
who have not had this training. "If
we estimate that the 20,000 alumni
of the university and state college
alone earn but $25 more per month
as a result of their higher educa
tion, this is a sum of $5,000,000 per
year," the chancellor pointed out.
"This would represent a five percent
return on a resource endowment of
$100,000,000, which can be termed
the actual worth of the institutions
to the people of the state, since it
brings in this return in actual
wealth in the form of Increased
The actual worth of higher edu
cation as a resource would even be
much greater if it were possible to
place an estimate on the great value
of research and the results this
field brings, Dr. Hunter declared.
He cited the Invaluable benefit to
the world of the discovery of a cure
of anemia, made at the medical
school, and the various discoveries
made by the state college that have
aided in Increasing crop yields and
in controlling crop pests.
Support for the higher education
system of the state, on the grounds
that it Is worth all it costs and
more, was asked by Chancellor
Hunter. An enthusiastic response
was accorded his address.
The big banquet was the climax
to what a record number of fath
ers declared to be the best "Dad's
Day" since the Oregon Dads were
organized nine years ago. During
the afternoon the fathers had their
own rooting section at the Oregon
Idaho football game, and they dis
played as much vigor and pep as
did the students themselves.
At the annual mass meeting the
"Oregon Dads" re-elected Earle
Wellington, Portland, president, and
again chose Merle R. Chessman,
Astoria, for vice-president, Walter
M. Cook of Portland, secretary, and
Earle M. Pallett, Eugene, executive
secretary. Three new members
were elected to the executive com
mittee, as follows: Joseph R.
Riesch, Roy O. Burnett and Loyal
H. McCarthy, all of Portland.
Other members of the executive
committee who will continue in of
fice are Ralph S. Hamilton, Rev.
John W. Beard, Ralph Morrison,
C. W. Morden, W. M. Davis, Willard
Bond, all of Portland, and Carl
The university is all set for the
most progressive year in the history
of the Institution, the fathers were
told by Dr. C. Valentine Boyer,
president of the university. He des
cribed the extra-curricular activ
ities of students, which is a phase
of university life of utmost im
portance, he declared. Through
these students develop leadership
initiative and other qualities. In
these faculty members act as coun
sellors and advisers, and let the stu
dents themselves supply the lead
ership, he pointed out.
The new library, which will be
ready for occupancy next fall, was
described for the fathers by M. H.
Douglass, librarian. Greetings were
also brought to the session by Mrs.
Hazel Schwering, dean of women;
Karl W. Onthank, dean of person
nel, and Virgil D. Earl, dean of
"MRS. W. C. ISOM.
A special meeting of the board of
trustees of the Irrigon Presbyterian
church was held In A. C. Hough
ton's office Tuesday evening for the
purpose of making up the budget

of.Boardman who is pastor of this

"Don't Be a Credit Cast-away!"
j ' CREDIT is more than a matter of money. It is a matter of charac-
ter. Good credt is a progressive asset. Poor credit is a progress-
: ive handicap. What is more forlorn than the man without credit
the man who has been trusted by his fellows and has flunked that
I trust? .
I By the same reasoning, what is more beneficial than good credit?
The man with good credit looks to the future unafraid. Oppor-
tunities are his. Credit, his advantage. The man alert to his own
interest pays up and keeps his credit good !
