Prosperous Inland Empire De
livers the Goods.
In what is generally known as
the Inland Empire, comprising
the eastern half of Washington,
the northern half of Idaho, the
northeastern part of Oregon and
northwestern Montana, the total
Liberty bond quota was about
eleven million dollars. Latest
compilations indicate that this
region has subscribed over four
teen million dollars. This show
ing is all the more remarkable
when the fact is pointed out by
campaign managers that the In
land Empire virtually has no war
activities such as shipbuilding,
manufacturing, cantonments or
naval stations out of which a
profit is made. Instead, the In
land Empire is called upon to
provide a big quota of every war
fund with no returns Conse
quently campaign managers give
extra credit to the patriotism of
this district.
Eclipse of the Sun lune 8.
The greatest astronomical event
in 49 years will occur June 8. A
great eclipse is scheduled to reach
this section at 4 o'clock in the
afternoon of that date. It will be
the first total eclipse of the sun
that has been seen in the west
since August 7, 1869. While the
path of the eclipse will be 60 miles
wide, first entering the country at
Astoria, Oregon, and traveling in
a southeasterly direction across
the country to Florida, there will
be almost total darkness over a
much wider belt. The moment
of greatest obscuration in this
state will be at 5:28 in the eve
ning. For nearly an hour there
will be almost total darkness. By
6:28 the sun will be shining as
[Many papers, by mistake,
have mentioned this eclipse as
taking place on May 8th—last

The Spending of Your
Hundred Million Dollars
Busiest Budget in All the World Is a Red
Cross War Fund—Every Dollar Spent
Alleviates Misery.
Last summer the public subscribed
a hundred million dollars to the Ited
Cross. At the latest statement over
eighty-five millions of it had been ap
Where has it goneî you ask. For
many months the world has been
spending over a hundred million dol
lar* a day for the destruction of life,
limb and means of subsistence. Call
up what you have read about the war's
devastation. The American Ited Cross'
enormous job Is to do whatever it can
to alleviate that—not after the war,
not after governments have deliber
ated and resolved ; but right now, at
the minute, on the spot. It's amazing
that it has done so much with so little

that meant rubbing out one line and
drawing another half an inch further I
south. Over there In Italy It meant
thousands of poor families fleeing from,
their homes. Major Murphy, Red |
Cross Commissioner in Europe, rushed j
to the scene and wired : "Indescribably j
pathetic conditions exist, involving j
separation of mothers and children,
cold, hunger, disease, death." In No-j
vember and December the American
Red Cross appropriated three million
dollars for relief there—a large sum,
yet small in comparison with the need.
Condensed Milk for Children.
Soldiers are only a part of the Red
Cross' work—probably the smaller
part Every instant, somewhere in the
vast flood of destruction, a hand I
rasches up In appeal. It Is pretty apt!
to be a child's hand or a woman's.;
When the Red Cross commission j
reached Petrograd It asked the gov- j
«rament, "What Is the meet argent
thing?" The government replied : "We
must get condensed milk for the little
children here." The commission got
the milk. At one spot In France farm
work was stopped by lack of horses.
That meant more hunger. The Red
Cross got In a big tractor and set it
to plowing for the community.
There are a million needs. Cold,
wet and the deadly physical strain of
the trenches undermine men's consti
tutions. A frightful scourge of tuber
culosis has developed In France. The
Red Cross has built sanatoria, pro
vided over a thousand beds and nurses.
Thirty Millions for France.
I have here a big sheaf of sheets
filled with figures. One Item is thirteen
million and odd dollars—the amount
which, up to that time, had gone to the
local chapters of the Red Cross in the
United States for local relief. Twenty
five per cent of the money subscribed
through the chapters eventually goes
that way.
Over thirty millions have been ap
propriated for work in France. Here
is a million and a quarter—in round
numbers—for military hospitals and
dispensaries; over a million and a half
for canteen service, where French and
American soldiers, relieved from the
trenches, can get good food, a cot, n
hath, and have their clothes disinfected
—and so go on for their brief holiday
clean, rested, nourished. There are
over three millions for hospital supply
service; half a million for rest sta
tions for American troops.
Aid of refugees—eleven thousand
families—accounts for nearly three
million dollars; care and prevention of
tuberculosis takes over two millions;
care of helpless children over a mil
lion; relief work 1» six devastated dis
tricts, including care of five thousand
families and sufficient reconstruction
to make houses habitable, required
over two millions.
Misery on an Unparalleled Scale.
These are all large items; but the
Red Cross Is grappling with human
misery on an unparalleled scale—a
world of it. The item for relief of the
blind amounts to four hundred thou
sand dollars. The dispensary service
sends supplies to more than thirty-four
hundred hospitals. The Red Cross re
ceives and distributes more than two
hundred tons of supplies daily at Pai ls.
For this distribution and its other
work it requires a big transportation
service of motors and trucks. This
transportation service has cost a mil
lion and a half, and Its operating ex
penses run to a million dollars.
Every dollar it spends means misery
alleviated. Its work Is building abroud
for the United States the best good will
in this world. It is building the best
good will among ourselves. Whatever
else the war may produce, we shall be
proud of our Red Cross.
