OREGON MS TAKE CHARGE THRIFT WORK a P. O. EL President Will Lead Saving Drive for $5,000,000. Sal of War Savings Stamps and Treasury Savings Certificate In the tats of Oregon has been placed entirely In the band of tba Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. The state body of Elks has taken over man agement of the thrift and saving cam paign as a volunteer patriotic service to the state and nation. This announcement ba Juat neen made by Harry O. Allen, bead of the Elks' state organization, and C. S. Jackson, state director of tbe govern ment aavlng organization. It la esti mated that existing Var Savings So cieties and school children throughout Oregon can be counted on to purchase 12.000,000 In War Savings Stamps be fore January 1, which will leave ap proximately $5,000,000 to be subscribed through effort of the fraternal organi sation, which has a membership of 15,000 In tbe state. Mr. Allen offered the service of the great fraternal order under authority given state organisations of tbe order at tbe national convention in Atlantic City, which adopted resolutions pledg ing active support of all members to the government thrift campaign. He has obtained leave of absence from his business and will devote all his per sonal efforts for the next four months to organising sales forces among the subsidiary lodges. "During the war," said Mr. Allen, "the order of Elks has felt it a privi lege to place at the disposal of our coun try tbe services of Its members. There were several thousand Oregon Elks un der arms, and those of us who were not privileged to wear tbe olive drab, the navy blue or the uniform of the ma rines, have taken pride in meeting the responsibilities of war finance and par ticipating In all other patrlotio movements." .J I nxnr w. sj. a,) 11 THE BACKING OF MONEY Bachelor Hosts Have Many Guests Messrs.

Saving Is spending, but It Is for the future rather than for the present It causes the production of permanent goods rather than the mere satisfaction of transient and temporary pleasures, The trouble Is that people confuse money with what Is back of It They see that spending Increases trade, but fall to see that investing money in creases trade just as much. Perhaps you never stopped to realise that every time you deposit a dollar In a bank or Invest It In some legitimate enterprise you not only help some to get and keep a Job, but a useful Job. Every dollar you bank or Invest provides work for somebody. It is sometimes said in favor of one the larger excesses Jewelry that diamonds are a good Investment That people think that they will be able to sell their Jewels if they cannot af ford to keep them. But aside from the fact that I don't believe that anyone eve,r sold a ring, or pin, or expensive watch for as much as he or she paid for It, there is the further fact that money Invested In jewelry earns no In terest - . Extravagance brings In no return. Money saved is not only kept, but It continues to work for Its owner. The earning power of money which la spent given up for all time. It la de stroyed.

" A senstor was entertaining some friends with stories about tbe Arizona desert, when a bor joined tbe party. This bore was the kind of a chap that always laugh In tbe wrong place snd spoils a story by trying to guess Its climax. Tbe senator undertook to silence him. "Poor Ferguson r he said. "That was a close shave he had In tbe desert last August." "Sunstroke, of course." said the bore. "No. not exactly." said the senator. "Tou see, Ferguson stumbled acci dentally on the Cauldron our famous spring, you know, that gushes out of the rock at freezing po'nt aud Imme diately begins to boll from the fierce beat of tbe sun." "Of course, of course," said tbe bore. "And what happened to Ferguson? Did be fall In the cauldron and boil to death? Get on with your story, man." "Ferguson fell In," said the senator, "but be msnnged to scramble out again. Tbe peril, however, was not yet over for him. Our Arizona air, you see. Is so dry that It absorbs moisture with astonishing rapidity. Well, the belling water In Ferguson's clothes evaporated so fast that the poor fel low instantly froze stiff." "I see." said the bore. "He died of cold. Well, that reminds me " "No, he didn't die," said the senator. "He almost died, but he had a miracu lous escape.

The fine equestrian statue of King Charles I, which was hidden In London for protection during the war, has been brought to light again. The statue. which was cast during the reign of the monarch, according to reports has not enjoyed the uneventful career per mitted to most works of Its kind. It was executed for Sir Richard Weston, afterward earl of Portland, who In tended to place It as an ornament In his garden at Rochampton. But this function it never fulfilled, for it was seized by parliament during the Civil war and sold to one John Rlvett, a brazier, to be broken up. John, how ever, being a royalist, hid the statue. and, by selling hundreds of bronze knife handles purporting ,to be made from It, disarmed any parliamentary suspicions in the matter. On the res toration of Chnrles II In 1660 Rlvett produced the statue,' which was claimed by Sir Richard's son. The brazier refused to yield It, and after years of dispute it was eventually pre- Yes, we handle cleaning and even decorating supplies for the tidy housewife.

Tie pains of success are mental and physical as are those of failure. Tho boy or girl who aspire to sua- eeed In school pays a dally penalty In tha not of resisting the Impulses to en joy pleasures of the moment; in forc ing tho brain to exercise when it Is crying to quit; la doing dally mental tasks which are Just as tiring aa any physical labor. Tbe man who succeeds paya his penalty, too. Ho mutt save when he would like to spend. Re must work when ho would like to loaf.- Ha must bo up and doing when ho would like to sleep. Ho must take kicks and not kick back. Ho must assume respon sibilities when ho dislikes to add to his burdens! Ho mast bo patient vigien his nature Is to bo impatient Ho must bring his appetite to reason when it calls to bo unreasonable. All of no know men who want to succeed, but wo know that they cannot because they will pay the penalties of failure; they cannot avoid them although they think they can. They will pay and pay hard.

Sir Douglas Mawson concludes that the rock foundation on which tbe Antarctic Ice cap rests Is very Irregu lar, partly above sea level and partly below, and that its thickness, which is very variable, may reach a maximum of several thousand feet Under the thickest portions the static pressure at the base may be as great as one ton per square inch. Under such a cover ing there may be a considerable accu mulation of ground beat and It Is as sumed that the under portion of the Ice mass Is undoubtedly soft and plastic. vvnere tne sea breaks up the ice at a rate faster than the flow, the sea front Is substantially the coast line. But elsewhere, as In the Great Ross barrier and the Shackleton shelf, the supply of tee exceeds tbe rate of erosion at the sea front and the overflow from the land maintains a thick sheet of "shelf Ice" extending far out to sea. The sea front of the Ice cap, at the present rate of advance or flowing out, Is estimated to have left tbe center In the seventh century of our era.

Fireproofing Concrete Columns. we nave neen wont to look upon concrete as capable of resisting a great deal of beat, and It may seem strange to think of coating it with a fireproof material. However, there are condi tions under which this is necessary. The bureau of standards has been In vestigating the condition of concrete which has passed through conflagra tions, and has found that If the con crete Is made with gravel, particularly siliceous gravel, there Is a tendency for the stones to burst In extreme heat which disintegrates the concrete. Accordingly It Is recommended that gravel be avoided wherever possible, but If Impossible the gravel concrete may be protected from extreme heat by coating It with an Inch of cement held in place by a wire mesh.
