The work of the chapter is moving along with smoothness and precision. There lias been an appreciable in crease in the number of workers, but there is room and need for still more. Headquarters is a busy place. Mountains of soft gray outing flannel are being transformed into myriads of soft gray petticoats—"warm, but trying to walk in." one would say. However, "we should worry " If the poor refugees want outing flannel petticoats, probably they know how to manipulate tlietn. It was a great disappointment that our Red Cross was deprived of its one opportunity to perform genuine canteen service to soldiers passing through Ihh city. When we heard that a trainload of hoys from Camp Lewis en route to California had been backed into Olympia from Te nino on account of washouts, there was tremendous excitement. We have no Canteen committee, of course, as we are oft' the route of military travel, but Chairman Har ris rose to the occasion. Immediately on receipt of the news he interviewed the captain in charge and gained permission to give the boys a free movie show. That was purled off with entire success. But that was only the beginning. By overstraining the telephone system, scores of house wives were set to work making pies and sandwiches, and a big feast and dance were 'arranged for the evening. And then, all of a sudden, the long train slipped out of town as suddenly and unexpectedly as it had come In, leaving behind it a city of saddened matrons and maids, and' taking with it, I am sure, a load of even skdder soldier boys. But "C'est la guerre;" as the French have taught us to say. And what a joyous itime father and the small boys had eating thoSe pies! Anyone who has feared that hjar work for the Red Cross might be used for the benefit of the Germans, or* who has not yet learned to trust the good sense of our national offi cials, may derive cojnfort and satis faction from the bljdqt statement of our general manager that the Arner* lean Red Cross has. no intention of undertaking any relief work in Ger many. No—when you make a worn an's petticoat or a man's shirt or a baby's layette you are helping- the victims of this cruel war, not those ho,aided and abetted it. J Oo you remember how eagerly andj Impatiently we loked forward *o the time when all onr cutting would be done at division headquarters by ma chinery ?«. At last the Joyful news arrived—and also the cut garments. And,* oh dear, what awful things they were to put together. So when a reqjiest' came this .week that, in order to nelp a congested headquarters, we cut ofir allotment of men's shirts by hfnd, our directress, with pven greater joy acceded,. An overdose of black pinafores In duced a profound languor among our patient sewers of refugee garments, but the soft gray material for petti coats, now filling the shelves, will sutejy n'ow act as a tonic. Chemises, too, ought to be fairly cheerful. As for the men's shirts—what outland ish styles and hues may appeal to tbe poor but honest peasant of France one dare not prophecy. Let us hope for the best. That our home service work is not to be confined to soldiers and sailors and their dependents is clearly shown by a general letter just received from division headquarters. It qays, in part: "During the epidemic there have been many instances throughout the United States, some of them in this division, in which whole faniilies, far> from neighbors and without means of communication, have been stricken with influenza and have suffered ter ribly and in some cases have died without any care or attention. With out doubt the Red Cross organization of branches and community auxil iaries is sufficiently complete to en able the chapter to supplement agen cies already at work in such a way as to make it impossible for such a trag edy to occur in the chapter jurisdic tion." And we are expressly instructed to lend our aid in such cases. The question of the construction of a road to Gull Harbor through Priest P-rint park bobbed up again this week wiien Will Hanna and others present ed a petition to the city council. The streetß committee was instructed to 'nvestigate and report at the next 'netting. Previous efforts of Gull Harbor residents to obtain a road through the park have been opposed by the city park board. Tin: WASHINGTON STANDARD, OLYMPIA. WASH., FIiIDAY.

I.e iiri'upylng the executive man • iti a fort th'* |>i i ' nt I• dative ses sion expires. Over tin governor's veto last week an appropriation hill was passed pro viding $9,000 foi tin? upkeep of the mansion. Out of this a sum sufficient to put the mansion in good repair will he spent. Ihe roof is now leaking, and it will take some time and money to make the repairs. In order to cement the present good feeling between the governor and the legislature, chairman James H. Davis of the house appropriations commit tee announced, when the vetoed item was under consideration, that the gov ernor this year would be given a sum sufficient to maintain the mansion. Senator Coman of Spokane, head of the senate appropriations committee, will push tlie measure through the senate. Governor Lister this week said he was totally indifferent in the matter, hut that if the legislature provides the money he would again occupy the home 1 lie state provides. He would not say when he expected to move, hut he I'd it be understood that lie would not delay after the legislature acts. The appropriation for the mansion is expected to be hurried through the legislature, and the last traces of ihe contest between and the last legislature wiped out. The mansion has been closed for two years, the Lister family occupying apartments for a while and lately a private residenie. i FORD'S WAR WORK LARGE IN VOLUME BIG COMPANY TURN'S OUT MANY DIFFERENT ORDERS FOR GOVERNMENT.

On this order over 40,000 bearingß were delivered. Order for 100,000 cylinder forg ings for Liberty motors. Here again the government recognized the supe riority of Ford work and ordered Ford forgings for all Liberty motors made in America. Order for ,400,000 cylinders for Liberty motors. Again the govern ment ordered the Ford Motor com pany to make all the cylinders for all the Liberty motors made in America. Order practically completed and new order for 300,000 was placed Just prior to the armistice. A large volume of experiment work was done in building two-ton military tanks, and the government placed orders for 15,000 of the small two-men tanks and 2,000 of the large six-ton tanks, and the huge buildings were almost completed in which the tanks were to be built. . Cancella tion order came before more than a half dozen tanks had been completed. Motion picture reels in behalf of the Liberty loan". Red Cross and Pa triotic fund work we're made by the company and supplied to the govern ment in sufficient quantities to serve the entire United States in motion pictures. Motion picture reels in volume sufficient to serve the armies of the United States in France, Italy and Palestine were furnished by the motion picture department of the Ford Motor company. Exactly 34,000 men and women were employed at the main factory iin Hignland Park: 6,800 men em-- I ployed at the shipbuilding plant; [ 4,000 at the blast furnace; 250 at the carburetor plant, or an average of 145,000 employes, practically all on one hundred per cent government : work, under a standard eight-hour | day and minimum wage of $5 per i dav. The date of the first war contract executed between the United States and the Ford Motor company was November 22, 1917. Production before the war was con fined to the Ford car, known to the trade as Model T. The entire efforts of the company were directed to the production of this one model chassis, upon which were mounted five dis tinct bodies, known to the trade as the runabout, seating two passen gers; coupe, seating two passengers; town car, seating six passengers, and the sedan seating five passengers. The last three are enclosed bodies, the first two are open, with removable tops.

Mr. Murphy's Accident—For 34 years The Washington Standard has had thi personal care and supervision of the editor, John Miller .Murphy, who lias seen to it that through pros perity and adversity, in storm or sun shine. it lias never failed to make its weekly visitation to the homes of the people of this and .other communities. Last Saturday evening Mr. Murphy left his home and proceeded to the Olympia theater, of which he is owner and manager. Somebody left the trapdoor of the stage open and he walked directly into it, falling a dis tance of 14 feet to tlie floor below. In a state of consciousness and semi consciousness he lay all night, being found there the next morning by Charles Orange. Help was summoned and he was removed -,o nis home. The income tax is the subject of discussion throughout the country. There seems to be more or less suspicion prevalent that adjournment of the capltol commission bodes no good. The Standard as yet sees no real cause for alarm, but with expe riences of the past on other lines there is ample opportunity for "sus picion. * The friction that lias existed for •some time between the transconti nental railways seems to have been adjusted. They have signed a treaty of peace and formed a sort of triple alliance to last one year from February 1. Doubtless to show their zeal as party organs, Republican press of the state continues the agitation of a' special session of the legislature. Religious revivals are in progress in most of the ehurehes. The Nesqually bridge on the road from Olympia to Taconta is reported in bad condition. P. W. Stocking, deputy county as sessor. has moved in from Grand Mound and will hereafter make Olympia his place of residence. People living In the vicinity of Lane's landing, on the Westslde, have not yet recovered from their fright over the visitation of a shark a few days ago. The monster Jlsh was about 12 feet in length. It has been several years since a fish of this size has been seen in the waters of Budd's Inlet. *lt was pvobabl ythe same shark reported to have been killed this week by Fred Schneider. Olympia has no member of con gress but she has an active represent ative at Washington. The latest or der is to remove the self-registering instruments In the weather bureau to Seattle and much indignation is felt over the removal. Sixteen liquor licenses are now In effect in the city of Oylmpia and only three in that portion of the county outside. ' AMERICANIZATION CAMPAIGN STARTS SECRETARY LANE liAUNCHES A MOVEMENT TO REACH ALIEN RESIDENTS. NEW YORK.—Co-operation of the entire nation in spreading to the alien population of the country the spirit and truths of Americanism and in ending illiteracy among the native born population, was urged by Frank lin K. Lane, secretary of the interior, at an Americanization dinner here re cently, which was attended by monp than 1,000 prominent citizens from all parts of the country. The dinner marked the opening of a campaign to be conduct ed by the government through the bureau of education of the depart ment of the interior, and in which citizens throughouut the nation will be asked to participate. An effort is to be made, Mr. Lane said, to obtain from congress an adequate appropria tion for the campaign. Asserting that the war had brought home to America the imperative need for Americanization work, the secre tary said that "Americanization," as it was known in the past, had "meant only the boycott," but the time had come when a new meaning should be given to the word if the ideals of America were to be preserved. 785,432 cars. For the year 1917-18 the production totaled 708,684 cars, but almost immediately after the end of the fiscal year, the plant did almost 100 per cent war work. Tenino Water Supply Cut. Tenino's water supply was cut off during the high water when the dock at the old Jones mill cn Scatter creek was carried away, taking with it sev eral sections of water main.
