nrRADITION tells us that about
sixteen hundred years ao
there lived In Flanders and
Holland a ood old Bishop
known as the Bishop of Myra
who was very fond of children
and became their patron saint.
1 He adopted a plan of so"
cretly lvlnfc presents to the children t
Christmas time and, to conceal his Iden
tity, created the mythical character ot t
Saint Nicholas, which the children of dif
ferent tongues modified to the more easily
pronounced "Santa Claus," and to this
day millions of children are made happy
each year by the Christmas visit of this
dear old Saint.
x In addition to the hearty co-operation
we lve to Santa Claus, we rown-ups
could add greatly to the comfort and
Joy of the coming year If we would
make and keep the vow of Dickens:
"31 will Ipnmr flUirurtmm

CAMPAIGN IS ON
The Salvation Army campaign to
raise a iunu ot tl.ouu in this county
which was postponed from last week
because of the necessity of Bending
workers to Astoria, where they partic
pated in relief work, has been launched
here in charge of Mrs. C. Underwood,
of the Portland divisional headquar
ters. Envoy Graves has also been
here aiding in the campaign. He de
livered an address Tuesday to the
members of the Tuesday Lunch Club
explaining in detail and yet in a very
interesting way the various ways of
the Salvation Army in administering
charitable work, lie was introduced
by Mayor E. U Scobee, chairman of
the Lunch Club meeting.
Not a day passes that the Portland
Salvation Army does not care for
stranded strangers who have come into
the city from outside points. During
the past 12 months 197 homeless girls
have been cared for without charge.
Much prison gate and other work is
performed. The Army is ever on the
frontier where grim poverty and dis
tress hovers to overcome humanity.
I be Army is popular in Hood Kiver.
and despite weather conditions, Mrs.
Underwood reports fair progress.
All rural families, with children,
who wish to attend the Com
munity Christmaa Tree, Satur
day afternoon, but who have
no conveyance, should tele
phone to John Baker, No. 1723,
by noon on Friday.

Floyd Wright. Whitman alumnus.
and Ray Slavens, Oregon Agricultural
College student, are arranging for an
annual intercollegiate dance to be held
at the Oriental Cafe next Wednesday
evening. Around 40 students from va
rious Pacific Coast institutions of high

and colleges and high school students
have been invited to participate. It
is anticipated that the dance will at
tract a large crowd. Ford'a orchestra
will furnish music.
Patrons and patronesses have been
named as follows: Mr. and Mrs. C. H.

Col. and Mrs. W. S. Dowd. who
were marooned for a time last week
when the snowdrift couth of Dta
halted the Mount Hood rail auto, now
declare that the story of a white coyote
bringing an open winter has been dis
proved. Col. and Mrs. Dowd, while
motoring home in early November
sighted an animal, which they took to
be an albino coyote, galloping1 in front
of their automobile. If the Indian
theory; about the white wolf is correct,

The Red Cross ball to be given,
Christmas night by the local chapter
of the American Red Cross for the
benefit of the crippled children of the -county
is expected to draw a large
crowd. Elaborate preparations are be- '
ing made fnr the event. Mrs. F. A. '
Cram, in general charge of the dance,'
has named the following floor commit-;
tee: Dr. L. L. Murphy. Dr. V. R.
Abraham, E. O, Blancbar, Harold
Hersbner and P. F. Clark.

named as follows: Mis. L. L. Mur

The public should not rest under the
impreHsion that the ball is for the gen
eral Red Cross fund. Tbe proceeds
will be used exclusively for tbe aid of ,
crippled children. Undur an Oregon
law, children of any county of the
state are given the benefit of medical ;
and surgical care at the expense of the ,
state. Counties, however, must raise
funds for hospital fees and the money
to be raited this Christmas night will
go to this fund. A number of Hood
River children who would probably
have gone through life hopelessly crin-
pledhave been relieved by this fund.

At the Instigation of C. H. Purcell.
in charge of the Northwestern division
of tbe Bureau of Public Roads, the di
rectorate of the Hood River Commer
cial Club will draft a resolution urging
that the United States Deparment of
Agriculture, which, it is announced,
has postponed for a year any participa
tion in the conitruction of the Wallula
Cut-OfT, reconsider the aiatter. Mr.
Purcell telephoned to A. S. Benron,
who is making his home at tbe Colum
bia Gorge Hotel, urging that the local
commercial body take action and for
ward a copy of the resolution to Secre
tary of Agriculture Wallace.
Tbe Oregon State Highway Com
mission has designated the Wallula
Cut-OfT as a primary route of tbe Ore
gon highway system, and the action of
postponing federal participation, it is
said, will be inimical to the best inter
eta of the Oregon highway plan as
well as to plans already scheduled by
the Bureau of Public Roads.

PRAISE FOR VALLEY

School of Theology of Boston Univer
sity. Dean Buell recently retired from
active services after 38 year' connec
tion with the school. Some 10 years
ago he purchased an orchard place
here, and at intervals since has vinited
here to look after the property.
Dr. Buell, who is a world traveler,
having written numerous articles on
travel, declares that he has never seen
any part of the globe more appealing
from the standpoint of scenic wonder
than the mid-Columbia section of the
Cascades. He characterize! the Co
lumbia River Highway as a marvelous
example of what man can do in mak
ing available the beauties of God's

Dr. Buell holds the seniority in point
of service over all deans of this, the
oldest department of Boston Univer
sity, having served in that capacity
for 19 years, from 1885 to 1104, tbe
longest term in cilice of any dean in
the history of the department.
A native of New York state. Dr.
Buell entered New York University
for bis college training, receiving the
degree of bachelor of arts and the
senior fellowship in 1872 and the mas
ter's degree the following year." In
1875 he was graduated from Boston
University School of Theology. He
later studied abroad, in Cambridge,
England! Berlin, and Heidelberg.
New York University conferred upon
him tbe honorary degree of doctor of

Shortly after his graduation from
Boston University, he married Mint

He has been a trute of the liosrd of

Tbe action of the authorities of Bos
