COUNTT OFFICIAL PAPEIt
MIMIIK ST. HCLSNS
CHAMBER OF COHKIKI
KEEP IT GOIXG
It was the pleasure of the editor
ot the Mist to meet and tauc wun u.
I. Hutchison at Medford this week
The subject of Commercial Clubs
Chamber of Commerce or any other
name by which a body of public
sDlrited men bent on doing some good
for the community and the advanc
ing of the interest of the community,
was discussed. Medford has a fine
and oroKressive Commercial Club
and Mr. Hutchison, who Is one of
Medford's most progressive and in
fluentlal business men, told us a
story, and it Is worth repeating,
As In every city, Mr. Hutchison
aid, Commercial Clubs are organized
and flourish for several months. In
many cases, he said, the members
lose pep ' because the great things
were not accomplished, and, graau
ally, the club goes Into the scrap
heap ot the "has beens." This was
true, he stated, as to Medford. Many
clubs had been organized and undei
different names. The enthuiasm at
the first and second meetings was un
bounded, but afterwards, the feeling
was lukewarm and gradually tho
organizations died. The last death
occurred about 12 years ago and Mr.
Hutchison and several other promi
nent business men got together and
decided to organize a Commercial
Club that was going to live and live
for Medford and surrounding coun
try. At the first meeting, 27 men
responded. - They pledged themselves
and their pledge has not been brok
en, consequently Medford has one of
the liveliest and best Commercial
Clubs in the entire state and their
membership is now close to the 30 u
mark.
The big things were not under
taken right on the start, but the
education of the residents of Med
iord was undertaken. The education
was to show why a Commercial Club
was a necessity and would be of
great benefit to Medford. Later on
the big things came and the "edu
cated" were in the ranks to help ac
complish the desired result and it was
accomplished, and that is one of the
reasons for Medford's prosperity.
Mr. Hutchison was the first presi
dent of the resurrected Commercial
Club and now, though only a private
In the ranks, Is just as enthulastlc
and just as willing a worker as he
was twelve years ago.
There is a lesson in the Medford
case and it can be applied to St. Hel
ens. Numerous commercial bodies
have been born and have passed
away because of a lack of Interest
and the lack of "the stick-to-lt"
policy. The Mist believes that the
present Chamber of Commerce body
is going to emulate the example of
Medford and it further belleveB that
results are certain and sure to come.
Stick to the St. Helens Chamber of
Commerce and help up-butld the
community.
IT ACCOMPLISHES THINGS
If any one who practices and
preaches community spirit and co
operation wishes to see concrete
evidence of what it accomplishes, ot
It any of the mossback, doubting
Thomas tribe wish to be convinced,
they should go to Ashland and Med
ford and see what has been accom
plished by the "pull together" sys
tems Both ot these little cities are
ideal cities because the citizens ot
the respective places so willed and
worked together to accomplish such
result.
Publio libraries, public camping
grounds, paved streets, attractive
publio parks and many other civic
improvements can be found in both
of these progressive cities.
And as to the residents of these
cities; their hospitality is unbound
ed and the visitor or stranger finds
a warm and sincere welcome, and he
leaves with a most favorable Impres
sion. It is the residents and their
community spirit which lias mado
of Ashland and Medford two ot the
biggest and best little cities in Ore-j
gon, and the residents down there
are proud, and justly so, of their
home towns.
If the residents of St. Helens
would emulate the example of Ash
land and Medford, our own little city
And the surrounding country would
be to northern Oregon what the two
cities mentioned are to southern Oregon.
Damage claims paid to France for
damages to property or injuries to
civilians by the American army will
not exceed $2,000,000 or about $1
a man tor all the soldiers in the
American expeditionary forces, ac
cording to an estimate made by
Lieutenant-Colonel Robert E. Purk
ham of St. Louis, chief claims officer
who recently returned from abroad.
Approximately 110,000,000 worth
of army foodstuffs stored at Antwerp
and The Hook ot Holland has been
sold to the Belgian government.
The money is payable in three years
at 5 per cent Interest.
Senator Lodge has started his
fight on the League of Nations which
some one unfriendly to Wilson has
designated as the "League ot
Notions.
The great Northwest will be better
understood from this time oa. Sever
al hundred eastern editors and their
families have visited us and realize
the greatness of tho country and thtj
hospitality of its people. They also
better rsallze the needs of this sec
tion of the country and will tell the
story to their thousands of reiders.
Nothing but good results will come
from the visit of the editors and Ore
gan wes proud to hive them and
showed them true Oregon hospitality.
The disposition of prisoners held,
by American forces In France was
of the peace conference, and it wes
decided that it was impossible to re
lease such prisoners until these
powers have ratified the treaty with
Germany. It will be necessary for
the United States to cooperate with
France in guarding the prisoners,
land this will probably make it neces
sary to retain some American sol
diers in France.
