To Aid in 'Saving
Over State to Make
Shrine of 'War Dog'
A county-wide campaign through
the schools was launched this week
for a permanent home for the
Battleship Oregon at Portland. The
state campaign, February 7 to 17,
is being headed by the Battleship
Oregon commission at Portland with
Governor Martin as honorary pres
ident. M. L. Case, local business man
who saw service in the Philippines
in the Spanish-American war and
who boarded the Old Oregon when
she was docked in Manila bay at
that time, has been slated for an
address in the local schools. Mr.
Case revealed his memorable visit
to fellow members of the Lions club
Monday noon when a discussion of
the campaign was had, and he and
Alden Blankenship, city school su
perintendent, as a club committee,
assisted Mrs. Lucy E. Rodgers, coun
ty school superintendent, in work
ing out plans for the campaign in
The Battleship Oregon commission
is attempting to raise $80,000 as the
sum needed to permanently berth
the old battleship, once known as
the "War Dog" of Uncle Sam's navy
and who served as flagship in the
memorable war that did much to
gain respect for this country's pow
er on the high seas.
Admiral Dewey and the Battle
ship Oregon are inseparable names
that will be emphasized before the
school children of the county this
week as they learn the glorified
history of the war dog and the plan
to make her secure as a monument
to future generations of those prin
ciples for which she so nobly served.
Oregon has a debt toward saving
the Battleship Oregon, say campaign
sponsors, for when Uncle Sam de
cided to junk the old ship people of
this state raised such a hew and
cry that she was turned over to this
state instead. This was in July, 1925.
Since that time she has been inse
curely berthed in the river at Port
land, at present at the end of the
Rroadwav bridge, where her posi
tion jeopardizes river traffic and the
docks where she lies.
The plan is to raise her to dry
land, imbed her in concrete and
keep her open as a shrine to all who
may wish to visit her.
School children will be told ot
this, and they in turn will tell their
parents, that all who wish may con
tribute toward the fund. No high
pressure campaign is intended, but
those subscribing a dollar or more
will have their names inscnbed on
an honor roll and will receive a
post card size reproduction of the
"Oregon." Those giving five dollars
or more will receive a larger repro
duction of the etching suitable for
framing. The campaign is endorsed
generally by the state's high offi
cials, civic and patriotic organiza

Unique Phone Meeting
An unusual meeting of intense in
terest was attended last week end
by Miss Opal Briggs, manager of
the local Pacific Telephone and Tele
graph company. The meeting, of tel
ephone company employees, was
held, in the Neighbors of Woodcraft
building in Portland in connection
with the institution of conference
calls by the company in Oregon.
Highlight of the event was the
connection of 17 larger Oregon cities
at one time and the carrying on of a
conference conversation. Loudspeak
ers in the room at Portland and in
each of the connected offices per

hear everything that was said. The
regular commercial service now
available to the public will permit
as high as seven phones in as many
different cities being connected at
one time, said Miss Briggs.
Three skits or playlets were also
presented by employees of the com-

H. G. Wells said: "Religion is the
first thing and the last thing, and
until a man has found God and
been found by God, he begins at no

We do not know exactly what
Wells meant by religion, but we do
know that this is true of the religion
of Jesus Christ.

New Truck, Plow
Clear Roads Quickly
First occasion for use of the coun
ty's big new truck with snow plow
attachment came last Friday and
Saturday when wild drifted snow
on roads in some sections. The ma
chine waded through six- and seven
foot drifts without a grunt, reports
Harry Tamblyn, engineer.
Had this equipment been on hand
a year ago, the bad condition of the
roads due to drifts at that time could
have been handled much better, he
believed. To date no bad road tie
ups have happened, that of last week
end being the worst, but it was
cleared up quickly by use of the
a road trip, playing at Walla Walla
Tuesday, at Milton Wednesday and
at Adams Thursday.
