On# hundred and eighty-aix year» ago Waahington was born
A T this time of the year, you are reminded of the story of
George Washington and the cherry tree.
But this year, let us think of George Washington at Valley
Forge and at Yorktown, when he was laying the foundation
of our United States on the principles of freedom and democracy
Today we are defending these same principles and in the heart of every
American is the loyal resolve that the life of Washington shall not have been
lived in vain. Millions in men and billions in money, we are ready to give to
such a cause. Commemorate him this day-and do your part, whatever it may be

OREN JENSEN WRITES FROM
The Examiner is In receipt of a let
ter from Oren Jensen, written under
date of February lbth from Vancou
ver, Washington, which is worthy of
publication. The letter follows:
"Here are a few items I thought
would be of Interest to you: Since
my arrival here in Vancouver two
months ago we have constructed a
large mill tor Uncle Sam for the pur
pose of cutting up spruce to build
airplanes. It will be capable of turn
ing out 11,000,000 feet per month.
We have twelve circular saws, twelve
cutoff sawa, twelve resaws and sever
al planing machines. The mill has
been erected in 45 working days, In
cluding Sundays and "rain or shine"
and have not laid off one day aince
starting the plant. There are about
250 men working steadily under one
foreman, Walter Mitchell, and 7000
lieutenants! The cost of the mill is
$250,000 and U M heavily guarded
day and night by 100 guards.
"The spruce la shipped from differ
ent parts of Oregon and Washington
down the Columbia river to the mill
which is built on the banks of the
Columbia. There was Just s short
stretch which was shallow which
made it impossible for the ships to
sail Into the Pacific ocean, but this
has been dredged by the government
deep enough so that the vessels can
carry provisions from here to France.
1 have been fortunate enough to get
a steady job In the mill which I sup
pose will keep me here for sometime.
"The dedication of the mill was
on February 7th. The Portland band
furnished the music, and interesting
speeches were made by Colonel Dis
que of the Spruce Division and Major
Reardon, also Major Baker of Port
land presented ns with a beautiful
silk mill flag which was raised with
the Stars and Stripes on that day. The
program was much enjoyed by the
6000 soldiers who were lined up in
company formation and also by all
those who were Invited. Mrs. Oren
Jensen and Mrs. Oscar Hall were
among the invited guests. Oscar and
I have our wives located ta a very
comfortable home just two blocks
from the cantonment and have every
night off at home from five until six
o'clock in the morning. Both Mm.
gardens and the girls are enjoying
the beet of health. The weather here
is more or Idas rainy, tho warm.
People have already planted their
gardnes and the girls are enjoying
radishes «od lettuce, while we boys
expect green peas any of these first
nights for «upper. However, we would
all enjoy being back in Idaho and tru
ly hope that that time la not far off."
