large a vivid glimpse- of the part
which the women of the northwest are
plaving in the war, ia a colorful ar
ticle, written for the October Red Cross
magazine entitled "As the West Sees
the War."" Miss Monroe is the author
of several books dealing with the Ore
gon country, including "A Story of
Oregon" and "Happy Valley." At
the time of the Panama Pacifie Expo
sition, Miss Munroe was the corre
spondent at the fair for a Portland pa
per and contributed numerous newsy
letters concerning the Oregon building
and Oregon visitors.
In her sketch in the Red Cross mag
azine, she points out the intense na
tive patriotism of the west, and espe
cially that west comprising the im
mense cattle and sheep ranches of east
ern Oregon, that region sweeping from
the Columbia river south to the bor
ders of California and Nevada, which
embracts at least two thirds of the
state of Oregon. She pictures with
graphic deftness the endless business
of .cattle, the breeding, buying, sell
ing and lassoing of cattle, the minutiae
of ranch life with its environment of
eook house,'bunk house, and ia short,
the hundred and one picturesque de
ails, that combine to make frontier
life a thing of eeaseless fascination to
the fiction-bred eye of the easterner.
Then Miss Munroe flashes the high
light of war on all this teeming, ad
venturous activity and the spirit which
rose to meet the demands of the war,
"Probably," says Miss Munroe,
"among all the industries of the na
tion none is so crippled as the cattle
industry, whose operation requires men
experienced both in the work and in
the country. The work of the stock
country is not learned in a book, nor
in a season. But just what do they do,
those left at the back of the north
western cantonments J The detail, af"
ter all is unimportant when the spirit
is right; aud the spirit well, tney
are the old men and the women folk
and the children of those who have
gone to the front; and they applied
themselves heroically to the task.
"And the homesteaders, so eager to
get on with their plans well, they saw
they couldn't do it this time. The
dream would have to wait. All the lit
tle cabins that housed so much hope
are empty, and the tented cities have
vanished; their occupants have gone
to help save the crops on the already
producing ranches women, young boys
and old men have mounted mowing
machines and swallowed dust while
they toiled from sunrise to sunset,
young women in towns heard of the
pressing need for workers in the hay
fields and joined the ranch women; in
one locality 5000 city school teachers
offered their vacations for the next
year. ' '
"No," Miss Munroe goes on, "all
the bravery has not gone to the front
and all the loyalty is not in the east.
The war work of the women in the
northwest has by no means been con
fined to supplanting the men in fields
and shops, they have shouldered the
burden of meeting Red Cross neeus as
staunchly as though that aione were
their war responsibility. The Red Cross
is thoroughly organized throughout all
the western states with a membership
in many almost tallying with the pop
The writer mentions among other well
known features of Red Cross activity,
the Superfluity shops, the Salvage
stores the berry picking of the school
children to accumulate earnings for
the Red Cross, and this, as yet, novel
mode of contribution in country dis
tricts: "Every morning," sho say9, "yoing
women go into the cities ana towns
with baskets full of rosebuds which
they sell on the streets for the Red
Cross; the ladies' aid societies of the
churches have automatically beeome
Red Cross societies, as have so many
of the organized clubs; all this in ad
dition to the knitting which seems to
have no beginning and no end."
"A short time ago," Miss Munroe
loyally reminds us, "the name 'Ore
gon' was flashed over the wires as
the first state 'over the top' in the
third liberty loan; she had been well
anion ir the first in the second liberty
loan and iu the first liberty loan, and
also in supplying Bed Cross aronium
tion and in getting her full quota of
enlisted men at' the president's first
call for volunteers. She has not been
a slacker in any department of nation
al service since we entered the great
war, and Oregon pretty well repre
sents all the other western states."

participated in a pleasant social, heia
at the church parlors Wednesday ev

was decorated very artistically for the
occasion with flowers and vines,green
and red being the prevailing colors.
Each person on entering was given
a card containing a letter and a num
ber which was to be worn. Later the
company was divided into groups ac
cording to the numbers on tne carai.
The letters worn by each group spelled
the name of an apple. Each group was
to discover the name of the apple it
represented and write a verse of at
least four . lines containing the name
of the apple. These proved to be very
clever. When they were read, the judg
