Large Attendance cf Dele
gates Is Expected Daring
What is the P. O. E.f
That question i being asked by
many Sr.lem citizens since tho an-,
nouncement was made that the Oregon
Grand Chapter, P. E. O., is ging to
hold its seventh annual meeting in
this eity next Tuesday. Wednesday
and Thursday, and that delegates will
be here frcm all parts of the ate. .
What do the letters, P. K, O. etanij
Some people innUt that they stand
for "Pigs Eat Onions." but the mem
bers of the society only smile and look
wise when such guesses are made.
The P. E, O. is an organization ex
clusively for women, and regardless of
that fact they have kepiho seecret as
to what the initial letters mean. The
P. E. O. Sisterhood is the lari'ent secret
organization of women indoxmdent of
an organization of men in the aaiion.
The first chapter was organized in
1869 by a group of college girls who
were students in the Iowa Wesleyan
uuuego mi. rieuMtui, i-owa. 1 neir
friendship for each othei was peculiar-1
ly close and as the .time for graduation
grew near, a plan for a eeerct society
to make the tie still closer, was sug
gested. It met with immediate favor
and thus informally, with tho enthus
iasm of youth, this siNterhood came
. As stated by members of the society,
the object and aims of P. E. O. are
growth and improvumieiit urnong its
meii),lM'rs in all things mental, moral
and spiritual. As one line of
society's activities, an educational
fund has been provided and is being
used to aid worthy girfs through
Alice Bird, who later became Mrs.
Babb, was tho first president of the
first chapter cf the sisterhood, and in
giving an account of the founding of
the society she eays:
''The surface reason for our existence
is, that wven of us colbigo girls had
been together for three or four years,
in 'study and in society, and we found
the tic a stronir one. iiiiusiinllv so. As
our tastes ran in the fame direction, Meanwhile 23 per cent of the miner
our natures woro congenial, and when1'11 tlio southwest- district of Kansas,
the problem of separation confronted M issouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas ami
us, we fdt that something uiuxt mark Texas aro laying off. The output in
the era of our friendship some token
might strengthen the bond, and re
veal to others what a lovely friendship
ours dad been.
It is impossible for any of us to
day to -state definitely who suggested
the form'iig of a secret Mciety, but
tho proposition was made, and hastily
made, tiat we identical iieven be the
j nucleus of a sisterhood. Of course, at
mat line we nine urcaineu 01 ine
great oulcomo, and yet we were in
earnest, and even then desired some
thing broad and substantial. We did
not for one moment wish it to be a
mere coliige fraternity, we wished a
society of more lasting name and repu
tation." When the State Grand Chapter of
Colorado of (he I. E. ). wfm organized.
Miss Virginia Corbetf, the president,
spoke of the sisterhood M follows:
"P. K. O. is not merely h liteiary
club. It. is this, but, mure. It is not
simply an agency for organized ckar
