Conservative authorities estimate that
for many months there were 8,000,000

This is an enormous sum and millions

that money is more plentiful in France

HEALTH OFFICER DOES DUTY.
The Star-Mirror must commend the
work of Dr. W. A. Adair, city health
officer, for the work he has done in
handling the influenza situation. His is
certainly an unpleasant task, but he is
handling it well. Probably no one in
Moscow is in closer touch with the in
fluenza situation or understands it bet
ter than Dr. E. H. Lindley, president of
the University of Idaho, and Dr. Lind
ley said to the writer : "I think Dr.
Adair should be highly commended for
the splendid work he has done. I only
wish the people of Moscow could know
all of the facts and realize how hard his
position is and how faithfully and well
he had performed his duties. I think
Dr. Adair's work is largely responsible
for the improvement in local conditions."
There is the opinion of one who knows.
Dr. Lindley has been thrown in closer
touch with the influenza situation than
any person in Moscow, owing to his
as president «1 the university
here 131 Kl students were under his
care. Me knows "whereof he

offsetting the criticism that

been done, what is being done and the

conditions that have prevailed here.

Adaii was criticised far not closing the

Closing the picture shows and the
'churches would not pay this money back
to the school district.

conditions. Eleven new cases have been

SECRETARY M'ADOO APPEALS
TO THE PEOPLE OF IDAHO
BOISE, Idaho, Dec. 6.—(Special to
I The Star-Mirror.)—State headquart
ers for war savings for Idaho has
received a telegram from Secretary
of Treasury McAdoo urging and in
sisting that Idaho fulfil your whole
war savings stamp obligation and
calling attention to the necessity of
holding the war savings certificates
already purchased as long as possible
and under no circumstances to ask for
their redemption until some time next
(year. Mr. McAdoo says: "I most
earnestly urge upon you that your
organization make every possible ef
fort to the end that pledges for the
purchase of war savings stamps be
fulfilled before the close of the year.
The government's monetary require- j
ments were never greater nor more
pressing than they are today. Ex
penditures for November were great
er than in any similar period. These
expenditures growing out from the
war must be met by borrowing from
the people and their magnificent re
heretofore to the government,
makes me confident that they will not
fail to continue their support to the
end that all payments resulting from
war necessities Will be promptly met.
Much remains to be done. Our brave
troops must be maintained and paid
until their work is fully accomplished
and they are returned to their homes.
This is not a time for us to relax
our efforts and the treasury depart
ment is making plans for larger and
even more Important work during the
coming year. Please make extra ef
fort to bring this statement before
the people in vour district and to
urge the continued holding of their
war savings certificates, the fulfill
ment of their pledges and additional
purchase as their means permit."

On Monday, December 16, the Am
erican Red Cross, the most honored,
the most revered, the most deeply be
loved organization in the world, will
begin the annual roll-call of its mem
bers, and all over this peace-blessed
land, millions upon millions of loyal
and grateful American men, women
and children will proudly answer
"Here" as they advance to pay their
annual membership fee of one dollar
and have their names once more in
scribed on the list of those who are
pledged to aid and succor distressed
On Christmas eve a year ago, 22,
000,000 American citizens had given
to the allied world a pledge of faith
more convincing than gathering
armies and ships of war. Nearly ten
millions of schctol children, the on
coming American generation, were on
the roll of honor.
Conceive, if you can, just what this
tremendous endorsement of the prin
ciples for which the Red Cross stands
—humanity and mercy—meant at
that time to a world torn by war, on
the every brink of a ghastly defeat,
facing a future that for days at a
time seemed to hold out as the result
of the conflict only unspeakable hor
rors and the depths of degredation for
What did membership say to the
soldiers, what did the dollar that you
paid a year ago proclaim to the ut
termost parts of the universe ? It
told that glorious body of fighting
men who at Christmas time last year
were falling by the thousands in order
to push the American flag to victory,
that there was a noble nation of true
and loyal hearts at home, solemnly
covenanted to make the same sacri
fices for truth and honor.
In the words of Henry P. Davison,
chairman of the war council of the
American Red Cross: "Through all
this tumult of death, and of glory,
the Red Cross has kept the faith. To
every war-blighted country where it
could make its way it has done as the
messenger of the American people,
healing the sick, feeding the hungry,,
clothing the naked and cheering the
hopeless. The end is not yet. The
world's measure of suffering is
greater than we can know until time
lifts the curtain which hides it.
There will be many a long day be
fore all the boys come home. The
Red Cross has still a great, a mar
vellous work of humanity to do. It
needs the weight of every American's
The Red Cross needs from you and
from each member of your family the
sanction of its mission as expressed
by the answer you will make to the
roll-call on December 16.
As Mr. Davison says: "The Red
Cross must have 100 per cent mem
bership in order that it may deliver
its message trith the voice of the
whole nation, in order that to every
American soldier who has been will
ing to offer his life for his country's
cause, wherever he may be, the Red
Cross shall stand as the ever-present
embodiment of his home and his
"This is the Christmas time, the
home time, when all around the world
the home bells, clear above the noise
of the war, will ring the undying
message of good-will. There are sad
homes, and not many happy ones,
when the whole world suffers, but
there are millions of homes and mil
Bons of hearts where the Christmas
flame will burn brighter for the
thought that the path between them
and the field of battle is clear to the
Red Cross messenger, and that while
their man guards liberty's altar, the
Red Cross is guarding his.
"This roll call is a plea for your
pledge. Make it unanimous."
REV. W. H. BRIDGE'S
READING PLEASED HEARERS
A small, but enthusiastic audience
heard Rev. W. H. Bridge, rector of
St. Mark's Episcopal church read
Galsworthy's "The Fugitive" in the
St. Mark's Guild hall last night. The
drama, that of a woman out of tune
with the social life she is living so
runs away and suffers poverty and
finally death in order to keep herself
; clean for higher things, has strength
and movement that are well suited to
Mr. Bridge's powers.
The characterization of Mallise, the
artist friend and councelor of the
heroine was particularly well done by
Mr. Bridge as were the lighter comic
passages in cockney dialect.
The Misses Florence Allebaugh and
Henrietta Peasley gave musical num
bers between the acts.
Another program of two lighter
social comedies written by Suttre will
be given next Friday night. It is
hoped that a large attendance will be
