The members of the Modern

W. M. I. Meet in jr.
The Woman's Missionary Union of
the Congregational church will meet
Monday afternoon at 2:30 at the
home of Mrs. J. M. Kirkpatrick. The
date has been changed because of the
Rose Carnival. The topic for the
day will be The Schauffler Mission
ary Training School of Cleveland,
wiiio." Mrs. Wilbur Denisou will
lead the meeting.
D. C. Germany's
program, and a sug-
gestion that an attempt may be made
J to place under the German flag many
i thousands of square miles of land in
Brazil, controlled by German nation
als, are submitted to members of
congress in a letter from the Navy
League of the cnited States urging
reconsideratiou of the house's re
fusal to make an appropriation for
battleships this year.
Attention is also called to the
building program of Japan, and it is
declared that while both that coun
try and Germany are most friendly
with the United States, "it would be
most foolish if we failed to consider
them as possible opponents,"
The letters direct particular atten
tion to the attacks upon the Monroe
doctrine appearing in German news
papers. One of these urged Germany
to "examine closelv whether things
resting on such shallow legal and his- J
torical foundations as the Monroe
Doctrine need be tolerated or wheth
er, at the bottom, they were not
merely American arrogance which re
quire sharp and decisive opposition."
The Young People's Society of
Christian Endeavor of the Presby

with the remainder of them. Ice

The Social Circle spent a pleasant
afternoon with Mrs. O. W. Long and

One of the jolliest parties of the
Reason was tile one held at the Ar

Most of the guests came dressed as
little children, wearing knee pants or
shirt skirts; There were all kinds
of klddish si nuts, such as speaking
pieces, spelling and singing, with a
mock orchestra, the latter including
nonie instruments never before
known to produce music Next came
the guessing or twenty-two kinds of
liquids, in which contest Miss Bailey

prizes. Vast quantities of peanuts,
rniprom balls, oranges and stick can

played until midnight, when the fes
tivities wound up with a grand taffy
pull, in which everybody exercised
their muscles and ate their fill of
sweet, sticky stuff Those present
were Misses Minta and Ruby Cheliy,
Bertha and Mildred Bailey, Florence

W. C. T. F. Meeting.
The W. C. T. IT. held an Interest
ing meeting in the hospitable home
of Mrs. A. W. Silsby, where she
kindly received her guests. Mrs.
Grace Holmes presided at the piano.
Little Inez Eagan was on the pro
gram with a song. A number of sub
jects pertaining to the welfare of
our country were discussed, the first
being Sabbath observance.
The principal speakers on the vari
ous subjects were Mrs. James, Mrs.
Hatch, Mrs. Hathaway, Mrs. Helman,
Mrs. Woods, Mrs. Lindsay and Mrs.
One special paper dealt with hered
ity and the work that had been done
to better certain conditions in the
United States. Also the necessity to
rear our youth, our best product,
without debauching them or drug
ging them before they reach mature
years, was touched upon. The sub
jects of tuberculosis as well as the
right of the child to be well born
were ably handled. The creation of
unnatural appetites through narcot
ics, which meant the early decay of
mentality and morality, was well Il
lustrated by one of our women. Cit
izenship and its duties occupied an
other space of time.
These topics of vital Importance
filled an hour or more of thougutful
consideration. The W. C. T. U. Is
rather noted for covering a wide
range of many subjects not being
limited, as some suppose, to one line.
In fact, no two meetings, during the
year, have similar programs. Ar
rangements were made to observe a
Flower Mission Day in the near future.

"Day Dreams," the latest waltz

sensuous sway and suggestion of
hidden holies and dreams, runs as a
recurrent theme through the new

POLE ORDINANCE FAULTY.
Hood River Measure Fails to Make
Hood River, Ore. Because of a
failure of the recently enacted ordi
nance here to make provisions as to
which company should make the
change of its lines from one side of
the street to the other, the Home
and Pacific telephone companies and
the Hood River Gas & Electric Com
pany are in a quandary.
In a communication to the council
Albert S. Hall, manager of the Hood
River Gas & Electric Company, stat
ed that his company had been assem
bling materials and making surveys
to comply with the ordinance, but
declared that it was impossible to
follow the law. The ordinance re
quires that the lines of the telephone
companies and the electric companies
be on opposite sides of the street.
They now occupy the same side of
the streets In numerous places. Be
cause of the fact that the ordinance
does not say which of the companies
shall move its lines, neither company
feels like making the move first.
