"OVER THE TOP IN FORTY-EIGHT HOURS"
By JANE PHELPS
HEB FAVORITE AUTHOES.
DIED AT SANATORIUM
DAVID SPEAKS HIS SUND.
The moment we were alone, I realized j iriU, manly, .at
Geraldiue Mish was a young woman
of varied tastes, and her two favorite
; authors were widely different in their
appeal. The novels of Buckram lubb
Willamette Chapter's enthusiastic workers have seen
fit to adopt as a slogan, "Over the Top in Forty-Eight
Hours," which, if realized, and there is no reason why it
should not be, will materially reduce the time officially
set aside and work still further and splendid economy for
our busy people in this, their busiest season.
Let it be said again, and as often as possible, that it is
just exactly this spirit of vigorous, energetic, whole-souled
action on the part of the enemies of German autocracy
everywhere that will win this war and win it decisively;
and on the other hand, it is the sleepy, slow-poke methods
of indecision on indifference that will just as surely spell
The first Red Cross war fund was raised because the
people realized, with the President of the United States,
that the American Red Cross could play a great part in
the winning of the war. The spirit of the people was
further based on their knowledge of the traditions of the
Red Cross and their confidence in the men the President
had appointed to head it. They did not know, nor did the
leaders of the Red Cross know, what its full scope
We face different conditions in the second Red Cross
campaign. The vast amount of money entrusted to the
leaders of the Red Cross has been largely spent We
have a record of performance and we now have a more
definite picture, of our future responsibilities.
The public realizes that the Red Cross performs a very

in the care of wounded and in the general comfort of the
soldiers and sailors. They do not know as fully that the
Red Cross is performing a great i;ew task of vast im
portance in helping pay the debt we owe those nations
who for three years have borne the brunt of this great
The fact that our Red Cross, by the broadest kind of
relief work, is strengthening and heartening our allies,
is one which will be brought home to all our people in this
campaign, and we know that their recognition of it, added
to their knowledge of its other work, will bring forth the
fullest measure of support.
Let every one adopt, without an instant's hesitation,
the slogan of the local committee, "Over the Top in 48
Hours"; let each make the immediate personal application
of that slogan and see to it that no delay of his or hers
shall cause the failure to realize it.
imeasureably worse off than under the czar. There is no
Utopia about the world as the Germans show it to these
foolish dreamers and as they have awakened from their
dream through the rough treatment, of the Germans they
will not soon forgive them. Kerensky however can do no
good by coming to America, and fortunately he can do
no harm either. .
Little Uruguay served notice on Germany a few days
ago to the effect that Germany must define her position
toward that country. A submarine had held up a steam
er on which a mission from Uruguay was traveling to
France, and detained the mission. The little country
stated in plain terms that if Germany considered herself
at war with Uruguay, that Uruguay would at once de
clare war on her. The reply was that Germany was not
lighting Uruguay. The kaiser probalbly finds it neces
sary to keep one or two of the civilized countries of the
world on speaking terms, so someone may buy flowers for
tne iuneral when the house of Hohenzollern hits the low
places and can't come back. '
There has been a remarkable increase in the acreage
planted to wheat in Washington, the total being estimated
at 2,281,000 acres. With a yield of 25 bushels to the acre
this would place Washington second in the list of wheat
growing states, Kansas producing around 100,000,000
bushels with the next in line about half as much. The
25 bushels an acre would give Washington a yield of 57,
025,000 bushels which is ten million bushels more than
the estimated crop of any state except Kansas.

It was a bright day ia Geraldine's
life when she was invited to a litera
ry tea at which the two authors were
to be among th.0 guests.
"Miss Mish," said the hostess, lead
ing her to a tall, strapping, bronzed
giant of a man in a tennis shirt, who
gave her a hand shake that deprived
her of the use of three fingers for a
month, "I want you to meet one of
vour favorito authors."
"Oh, Mr. Tubb!" gushed Geraldine,
"if you knew how I've been looking
forward to this meeting to being ac

wrote those thrilling, throbbing novels.

The foreman says they do their work well though so far
it has been light such as cutting weeds along the track
and removing debris of all kinds from near the same.
They all wear overalls and apparently like the "new

such work in this country, but if the war lasts it will soon
get to be an every day affair.
Now that it has been found reasonably easy to sink
ships close to the harbors as was done at Zebrugge and
Ostend, why would it not be a good plan to sink a number
of them in these harbors or any other where the sub
marines may find egress. With the submarines sinking a
dozen vessels a week the allies might as well sacrifice
three or four times that many and fill the harbors up.
They might as well sink them as have the U-boats do it,
for the toll taken in a few weeks would be as great as the
loss incurred n filling a few harbors.

dollars a day and few of them ever saw the inside of a

Oregon is in the lead again. The eclipse of the sun is
scheduled for June 8, but there was a total eclipse for a
large number of politicians which dated from the close
of the polls last night. Thus Oregon is ahead 22 days,
and instead of one, several favorite sons went behind the
moon and will not emerge for. two years at least.
Many old timers will learn with real sorrow of the
passing of Walter Fernald, who died at Baker Thursday.
He was a man of large ideas, a believer in the great future
of Oregon, warm in his friendship, generous in his deal
ings, and with a host of friends in all parts of the state.
His death is a genuine loss to the state.

The president had a regular, old

and admitted it. At a theater, in
response to a demonstration from the
