Entered as second-class matter,
January 10th, 1911, at the Poatofflce
at St. Helena, Oregon, under the act
of March 3rd, 1879.
One of the most interesting phe
nomena in the American expedition
ary force since the armistice has
been the surprisingly cordial atti
tude of the rank and file of the army
of occupation toward the German
civilian population. To some people
this is a disturbing phenomenon as
well as on interesting one, for the
subtle maliciousness of German
propaganda methods is well known,

It is hardly probable that there U
anything to worry about While the
soldiers were flffhtlng or training in
France they were billeted in a coun
try already overcrov.-ded v.-ith fight
The casualty lists now being pub
lished In the dally papers contain
the names of the last of our boys
who died or were wounded In the
great war. The lists to be published
from now on will contain, with but
few exceptions, the names of only
those men who have died or been
Injured since the signing of the arm
istice There are also cases in whicd
extended investigation is necessary
to confirm reports of death or to de
termine the extent of injuries and
these names also will appear in
forthcoming casualty lists; also the
names of those who were injured
beyond recognition when they gavo
their lives for their country.
Casualty lists will, however, con
tinue to be Issued indefinitely, be
cause there are bound to be deaths
and illnesses among our soldiers who
are with the army of occupation
abroad, and the next of kin will
continue to receive the usual official
notification from the war depart
ment as to casualties.
Banking la coming to the front
as one of the great constructive in
dustries. Not so very long ago the banker
merely loaned money.
Today he is loaning brains and
experience In addition, and without
cost. The modern banker finds
that he must in many Instances an
ticipate the needs of tils customers
in obtaining Information and statis
tics relative to Industries which may
bo developed in his community.
The banker realizes that in the
success of his community lies his
success. Successful Industries or
farmers means hundreds and thous.
ands of new depositors and added op
ing men and native refugees, and Portunities for safe loans
often in districts laid waste by In Hence banking is developing
vading armies. They had to take 'more into a personal service organi
what accommodations they could ! tatlon and not a mere cold blooded
get, sleep in barns and sheepfolds,
occupy all sorts of dirty holes and
corners. Most of tho time they were
working or on the move, and their
freedom to roam about and see the
country vas narrowly restricted.
Naturally they cams away with a
poor Impression of France.
In Germany they get real bed
rooms, clean sheets end feather beds,
tor Germany has net been strippeu
as France was. There is more leis

latitude in passes and furloughs,
more recreation. German villages
