demanding release of German prisoners
held in Siberia, but this will contain n

A committee of 115 members will go

The ultimatum provides first. t tlr
Russia free all German prisoners in good
health; second that all those in ill
health remain in Russia under care or

k of the Firing
Modern war conditions demand that our armies must have behind them
national solidarity the coordination of all the vast activities and an indus
trial army many times greater than the Nation's fighting forces.
The Nation's capital is linked with all these varied activities by the toll
and long distance lines of the Bell System. Thousands of miles of special
wire systems have been turned over to the Government for its exclusive use.
Switchboards in the Government departments at Vaslungten have been en
larged and. new ones installed. Right of way is given to Government busi
ness over all commercial lines, so that the Government chiefs may keep in
constant touch with every phase of the Nation's great task and direct its
progress intelligently and effectively.
In organizing the military activities of the country, the Government has
had the effective co-operation of the Bell Telephone System, which even in
peace times reached 70,000 communities and now extends to the headquar
ters of every Army Department and Naval District of the United States.

Key. R. N. Avison, Talks On
Dancing, Red Cross, Sctocls
and Other Things
Dancing, politics, tho pessimism of
some people and the Y. il. C. A. were
discussed in the sermon delivered yes
terday morning by the Rev- B. N. Avi
son, i3tor of the IVst Methodist
church of Salem.
In regard to the pessimistic tone
that ran through the me.sagos of nmuy
during the sessions of the Oregou Sun
day school association which met the
past week in the Methodist church,
Dr. Avison said: "I do not share, in
any degree the ipirit of pessimism
that seems to be- abroad- in the country.
I hope the feeling is not shared to any
extent that the church had failed to
some extent and that the Y. M. O. A.
was taking its plao in war work. Tho
Y. M. C. A. is the church in action but
not by any means a substitute- for the
"Tho chaplains in the army axe
from tiie pulpits of Christian churches
and the Ked Cross ia made up largely
of Christian women. If it were not lor
the Christian church, the Y- M. O. A.
nor the Itcd Cress would have an ex
isteace," he said. "I think the Y.
M. C. A. came for just such a time as
this, but let us not forget that the
church gavo it birth.
"You note that ministers and theo
logical students are exempted irom
the draft It is either a slander or a
challenge. The fact is, tho government
has renoguized that any undertaking
without the church would be a fail
Dr. Avison said there was an in
crease of 37 per cent in juvenile dolin
queney in Portland since the war be
gan, due to the fact that fathers and
brothers were in the war" and that
mothers and daughters were working
In regard to the1 proposed 48 weeks
of si'hool, he said tho higher govern
ment officials knew of the perils of
the long vacation and suggested that
tho superintendent of the city schools
and the city educators offer their ser
vices to caro ftr the boys who would
be working in groups in different part
of tho county.
The Church and Politic
Referring to the Ked Cross and en
tertainments given to secure money
Dr. Avison said: "Ladies, maintain
your institution without any relatioJ
to questionable amusements such as
dancing- I have been asked, what harm
is there in dancinef I am tired of
talking of dancing. It should have no
place in the life of a mature man or
woman. I am not narrow. J nere is
something more important in life than
such frivolous nonsenso us dancing."
Dr. Avison holds that it is tho duty
of every citizen to s'rutunzo the rea
ord of every man to be voted on May
17, whether for the city or for tho
county and state offices. "A man said
to me the other day that the Meth
odist church would not control poll
tics this coming election," said Dr.
Avison. "I will say that tho Method
ist (ihurch never tried to control any
election, but that it is interested vi
tally in good government. Borne of you
will know nothing about a candidate
and his moral standing 24 hours bo
fore election, day. It does seem strange

Can we get the fuel? What is it going to cost?
When may we expect delivery?
These are questions uppermost in the mind of
every manufacturer whose pla.it is today striving
as never before, even running 24 hours daily, to
keep production apace with demand.-
Use Gas for
and your problem is solved at once no more
worrying about costs, deliveries, etc.
You have at your command cur immense re
sources. You pay a definite amount that does
not fluctuate with market conditions. You pay,. ,
for Gas only as it is used thery is no need to tie ;
up capital or space in a fuel pile. You abolish
waste, dirt and haulage charges. You get a fuel -
of uniformly high standard, easily and instantly
regulated to the fraction of a degree.
These facts are worthy of serious consideration.
