LIBERTY SHOP ASKS FOR GOODS MERCHANTS ARE INVITED TO DONATE GOODS FROM THEIR STOCKS It has been suggested by the com mittee In charge of the Red Cross lib-1 erty shop that now, while merchants are taking their invoices, they may very likely find articles of wearing ap parel which they will be glad to set aside as a donation to the stock of this very useful philanthropic enter prise. Some of the store-keepers have been extremely generous in the past in sending over good clothing that found a ready sale. Notable among these has been Mr. J. F. Stewart of the Fash ion Shop whose contributions have brought many a dollar into the treas ury. The clerks at the Liberty shop hope that other merchants will folow this splendid example and will tomorrow morning send a generous supply of clothing and merchandise of all kinds to be sold at reasonable prices for the benefit of the Moscow chapter of the Red Cross. +++♦♦*+♦♦+♦♦++++ NAVAL FORCE 225,000 ♦ * + 4* ♦ WASHINGTON. — Temporary 4 ♦ naval force of 226,000 enlisted ♦ ♦ men for the year beginning next ♦ + July was decided upon today by 4* ♦ the house naval sub-committee, 4* 4* which is beginning the work of + ♦ framing the naval approapriation 4* 4* bill.

Bishop Page has sent to the Rev. W. H. Bridge of St. Mark's Episcopal church the following notice relative to the plans of the church. "A call has gone out from our com mission on world conference on faith and order, requesting the observance of the octave Jan. 18th to 25th, 1919, as a season of prayer for Christian reunion. I hope you will find it pos sible to observe this week, and get your people to do so. I am enclosing you copies of a little pamphlet issued by Dr. Gardiner, secretary of the com mission, which I am sure you will find valuable. "I do not believe I am going too far when I express my conviction that thè greatest need of our church people is the habit of prayer. Whatever re ligion means is bound up in prayer. It is our relation to God that distin guishes us from those who believe in good works without religion. There is only one thing that will ever bring the world to the throne of God, and that is prayer. Argument will not do it; good works will not do it. We must commune with our Heavenl Father if we would truly know an really believe in Him, and therefore conscientiously serve Him. Nor can there be any more im portant subject for prayer than how much longer we can continue disunited and be a strong effectual force in the wori-i. In our war work we have seen the churches outstripped by many other organizations, not doubt that some of you have come to feel that in the communities where you live nothing has counted much less in the prosecution of the war than the church. In many of our best communities the influence of the church upon community life is pa thetically weak, wheréas, if duly or ganized it would be the strongest of all influences. We may be profuse with our explanations, but as long as present conditions continue, those who have the practical work of the world to do are likely to pass the church by as unconsequential. "As most of you know, I had the interesting experience of spending five weeks this past summer at Camp Lewis. It was positively appalling to see how little organized religion seemed to mean to tue great mass of splendid men who entered the army from the northwest. There are many reasons for this, but one of the most potent is doubtless the fact that our divided Christianity presents a sorry and pathetic spectacle in most of the jbommunities from which our boys came. Brethern, let us pray with all our souls for a better day. "Faithfully yours, "HERMAN PAGE."

The district is organized to secure connection with the north and south state highway at the Nez Perce county boundary and to provide an extension of the highway through the town of Genesee and toward Moscow for a distance of approximately ten miles. The highway can then be taken up by the district adjacent to Moscow whenever that territory is organized and the road can be continued into Moscow. Whenever this is done, the extension of a highway connecting the county seats of Nez Perce and Latah counties will be complete and Moscow and Lewiston, together with the in tervening highway will be adequately served. The Genesee highway district takes in the town of Genesee and runs ap miles north. The boundaries of the district are laid out with reference to adequate connection in the future with the proposed highway construc tion in the Juliaetta section and other districts adjacent to the territory now being organized. Under the law, the boundaries of the district can be ex tended in the future and the district can join with the county or with other highway districts in the construction of roads outside xie highway district, but connecting with and forming parts of main highways. The pres ent district is arranged to take in territory which is ready to proceed with construction and to provide for proper co-operation with adjacent ter ritory in the future. The Genesee highway district con tains approximately thirty-five thous and acres of land and the petition alleges that the assessed valuation is two million dollars. On the petition as filed, appears the signatures of one hundred and ten electors and land owners living in the district and it is alleged in the petition that these are more than 20 per cent of the electors resident in the district and voting at the last election and are the owners of more then ten per cent of the land. In commenting upon the plans for (this district, a prominent farmer of the Thorn Creek district in Moscow today, stated that his community was exceedingly anxious to see this meas ure go veyors for the route was completed about two weeks ago. They have es tablished a splendid grade on a very direct route, having surveyed from a few miles west of Genesee, right up to the edge of this city. The dis tance from Genesee to the county seat will be about 16 miles, if the pro posed route is followed. The expense of making this survey was all borne by a group of farmers anxious to see the road put through. "You mâÿ gay for 006," stated the' farmer from Thorn Creek, "that the people of my section have always wanted to work with Moscow in every enterprise. We are very anxious that this highway should be run so as to include Moscow. We do not want the capital city of the county to be left out in the cold. I think the merchants should back us up in our efforts, for it will certainly be to the interests of this town to see this highway come right to it« doors. Practically every man in my neighborhood and for miles beyond has signed up for the loca tion of the highway along the route reported on. If it is constructed, the Moscow stores will se a great increase in trade. There is nothing like a good road to bring people to surface of the road -ri gravel in order to stand the wear and tear of the heavy machinery that will be used on it." a town. The ill probably be representative from Thorn Creek precinct in the state legislature, was one of the prime movers in this enterprise. Alfred Anderson pa MILITARY DEPARTMENT REPORTS INCREASING AEGI8TRATI0N AND GREAT ENTHUSIASM Reorganized and acting in a larger capacity than before the war, the Uni versity of Idaho R. O. T. C. is starting with an impetus that is bound to shove it to the front for a very successful year. The military department re ports an increasing registration, and is formulating its organization and plan of attack. It is expected that three companies will be informed. The new R. O. T. C., with practically all men having military experience, with a number of officers and O. T. C. men, can enter into more complicated and Interesting drill, and launch more extensive operations than previously. The government will furnish uniforms to non-commissioned men, with com mutation of rations to third and fourth year men, and cadet officers will re ceive ration pay. There will be four hours of drill, with one hour of military science classes a week. The periods at 11 o'clock on Monday and Friday have been shifted to Saturday, to allow time for some of the complicated military* movements.
