IT IS ALL IMPORTANT WORK
A subscriber of the Oregonlan who
halls from Linnton and la evidently
a mill worker asks the Oregon Ian
why the loggers and millmen are
being overlooked in their patriotic
work while the Bhipworkers have
their bands, entertainers, famous
speakers to visit them and are laud
ed to the sky for their patriotic work
in building ships. The writer does
not seem to think that the shipyard
workers are entitled to more respect
or are they more patriotic than the
men who furnish the logs nud stand
back of the saws which make the
lumber for the ships. The Oregon
tan subscriber is right; the man in
the woods who stays with his job
and fulls and cuts the trees which go
to the big mills and the man in the
mill who makes the ship timbers
from the logs and the men in the
yard who handle tho lumber and stay
with their jobs are just na im
portant a cog in Uncle Sam's big ma
chine or lluk in the bridge of ships
03 is the man in the shipyard who
puts the timber from the mill, into
the proper place in the ship.
All of it is necessary work and nu
man connected with any branch of
tho work, from the forest to the ship,
can claim that his work is nu.e im
portant than that of his telle w-work-er.
The main thing is for all to stay
on the job and that the work pro
gresses. A day's delay might mean
failure for some important move
Uncle Sam contemplates.
LET THE RED CROSS HANDLE
ALL WAR RELIEF WORK
Announcement has been made that
In November a union war fund drive
of $100,000,000 for the Y. M. C. A.,
15,000,000 for the Y. W. C. A.,
115,000,000 for the camp community
service and $3,500,000 for the
library association will be mm. i. In
commenting on this and mentioning
ether war societies such as the
Knights of Columbus, the Jewish
Welfare League and the Salvation
Army, the Spokesman-Review sug
gests that all of these societies be put
under the management of tha Red
Cross which is essentially a govern
ment organization. Tho Review sug
gests that much duplication of work
could be eliminated and the same re
sults obtained. The Mist thinks the
suggestion of the S-R timely and
wise. There is no question as to the
good work done by the organizations
mentioned and the only questicn is
tc do the same work under one or
ganization and thereby lessen the
cost of administration and avoid
duplication.
When the allies were working as
separate commands, each general be
ing the commahdor-in-chief of his
r.rmy and free to work out his own
plans, the results were not satisfac
tory, but when the armies of the al
lies were virtually molded into one
great army and one great general,
Fcch, was given entire charge, the
results obtained show the wisdom of
the plan, and the Mist thinks this
might be taken as an example of
what might be accomplished if the
many war work societies were taken
over by the Red Cross ana the work
done under the direction of one
great body.
Bill Haywood might not have
i found out that the pen is mightier
than the sword, but he has found out
that two pens are mighty, mighty
pens. First the pen of the Federal
Judge that wrote his 20-year sen-
; tence and then the Federal pen
whore he will spend 20 years for be-
ing a traitor to his country.
A loan to Uncle Sam is much bet
ter than a levy by the kaiser. Begin
now to lay aside for the Liberty bond
you will buy on or before Septem
ber 28th. St. Helens must maintain
the good record it has established
and you must do your share.
Pay up the balance on your Thrift
Stamps and get ready for the Fourth
Liberty Loan. St. Helena and Col
umbia county must go 'over the top
end be among the first to do so.
Now since the council lias-decided
to build a floating dock to be the
property of the city -and to be buili
on city property, It might be well to
call their attention to the fact that
the dock it! needed NOW.
If any true American can read
George Pattulo's article "Hellwood"
In the Saturday Evening Post ' of
August 31st and not feel more proud
of the American soldier, he is a
queer kind of animal.
Too Hud Ho Couldn't March
United States Senator Howard
Sutherland of West Virginia, tells a
story about a mountain youth who
visited a recruiting office in the sena
tor's state for the purpose of enlist
ing in the regular army. The examin
ing physician found the young man
as souL-d as a dollar, but that he had
flat feet.
"I'm sorry," said the physician,
"You've got flat feet."
The mountaineer looked sorrowful.
"No way for me to git In it, then?"
"I guess not. With those flat feet
cf yours you wouldn't bo able to
march even five miles.''
The:i the mountaineer said slowly,
"I'll tell you why I hate this darned
bad. You see, I walked nigh on to
otw hundred, and fifteen miles over
tlio mountains to git hero, and Gosh,
how I hate to walk back!" Every

Germany Ib fighting the war with
her printing presses ns well as with
her guns.
The German propaganda work has
been thorough and extensive, and, to
a great extent, effective.
There is uothlug that Germany has
Cnr.e quite so thoroughly as to adver
tise her .thoroughness this with a
view of creating a feeling of awe
toward her anions other nations Hut.
while Germany Is and has been
thorough in ninny ways, she has done
nothing and can do nothing that can
not be matchod and more than match
ed by other nations.
In a building in Loudon nro four
thousand girls and men, going
through mall matter or all sorts, look
ing for German propaganda, and find
ing much of It. It comes In all sorts
it forms; papers, booklets, mnga
zires, bound volumes of books, post
cards, and the like. ,
In one room In this building sixty
girls handle 14,000 pounds of nail a
day. In another room eighty mon
denl with a hundred and fifty-seven
different, languages and dialects.
In still another room r.re samples
cf various books sent out by Ger
many as propaganda. In this room
2,000 volumes, nicely bound, sent out
rs works on art, science, literature j
and nearly all other subjects in which
men nnd women are interested, bur
!n reality German propaganda to the
core. There were books with gold
r.nd red covers to appeal to the Turks,
books for nearly every nation on
earth, whother ally, neutral or
enemy.
On a table in this same room, I
saw W. J. Bryan's attack on Eng
land's treatment of India printed by
Germany In twenty-seven different
languages, still carrying Mr. Bryan as
Secertary of State of the United
States, all calculatod to prejudice the
world against England.
Through Intrigue and propaganda
Germany accomplished in Russia that
which Bhe did not and could uot nc-!
compllsh with bullets and bayonets.
Germany Is still working among the
Russians with force and persuasion
; oping to get aid from them in her
struggle.
Germany Is working among the
people of South America, sending
them not only printed matter, but
cheap jewelry on which are kindly In
scriptions regarding the Kaiser and
members of his clique.
German propaganda covers almost
every line of thought; racial ques
lions come in for a great deal of at-,
tentlon. In Berlin ono organization!
will take an incident and dish it up for 1
the Irish; another organization will
put Its interpretation on the Incident
for the South American, or for the
Hebrew, or the American; oiie set for!
Catholic, another for Protectant.
Need of American Prouj(uiiI
American propaganda should be
distributed In every way posslblo
among the nations of tho earth.
Our propaganda should not be of
the deceptive sort uned so freely by
Germany, hut should continue to be:
of that naturo which gives tha world
to understand that America, man,
woman and child, is back of tho Pres
ident when lie says we are fighting a
war not for gain, that we want neith
er territory nor Indemnity, but are
lighting to make the world a safe
and decent place for future genera
tions; fighting to stamp out that
Military spirit which has made Ger
man autocracy a menace to all civlll--Htion.
Koeping ourselves right and let
ting the world understand, without
I ragglng or self-glorification, that we
mean to do only thnt. which is right
.nd will quit only when right prevails
will help much. Thlo will bind our
Allies closer to us and cmniot be
without Its effect in Germany if we
aro persistent enough to got tho real
truth to the German people. '
I do not mean to say that it is pro
bable that this would make a break
in Germany, but from what I have
cocn of German prisoners of war,' I
bolieve ft Is possible to make it hard
er for the Kaiser and ills clique to
keep his peojlo In line, which means
;hat It would he correspondingly eas
lo for our men.
I'ropoganda work should In no way
load to a let up In the material pre
paration, but should lncroase it.
America should get good and ready
to give Germany the whipping of her
history, and not stop until Kalsorlsm
and his militarism are brought to
t.ieir knees, submissive to tho
dictates of right and decency.
