Only Fifty-nln Hundredth of On Per Cent Found to Hav Vncrai Dis tal on Arrival at Cantonment. 8urBonGenoral's Official Telegram Oregon Social Hygiene Society, 720 Selling Bldg., Portland. A tabulation of one million reports first received from camp surgeons throughout the country shows that Oregon leada the country with rat of fifty nine hundredths of on par cant found to hav a vener eal disease on arriving .In camp. It la hoped that Oregon can continue vigorous measures In combating venereal diseases during tbe period of demobili sation and thereafter. RUPERT BLUB. ".',.'; . ; j i , Oregon men, called to the colors during the greatest of all war, were physically tbe cleanest In the entire United States Army. , Such Is not the mere boast of any cltlten of this state, backed only by a high aense of local pride, but It is tbe established, record of tbe United States Army, communicated to tbe Oregon Social Hygiene Society by Rupert Blu, Surgeon-General, thus giving it the greatest possible weight As will be seen by perusal of tbe foregoing telegram from Surgeon General Blue, a tabulation of 1,000,000 ot the first reports received from camp surgeons place Oregon In the lead with a rat ot fifty-nine hun dredths ot one per cent (which mesne less than six men to the thousand), or, compared with another wire from him, thla state' standing is but a fraction lower than 18 times ahead ot tbe stat with the highest per cent ot Infection, which was eight and nine tenths per cent (eighty-nine men to the tboussnd). This constitutes one of the grandest and proudest records of the whole war period and, great as has been this state' part In all patriotic endeavors, nothing could fill the hearts of its people with a higher degree ot pride than th official acknowledgment from tbe National Capital that Oregon's men stood far and away above all others in clean manhood. "That the work of the Oregon So cial Hygiene Society, carried forward for but seven years, should produce such magnificent results, Is a subject ot tbe most gratifying kind to the entire Boaftl," said Executive. Secre tary Cummins. "Every one of the men who have worked so hard to bring about the result regard this of ficial notification from the Surgeon- General as a complete vindication of th program aouRht to be carried for ward In this state. That the public will respond to sane, clear facts, right ly presented, is also demonstrated beyond doubt ' Educators, who hava assisted greatly In the work, may well feel that young men under their tute lage will absorb the benefit to be de rived from information along physio 1etcl 1'nea. rlahtly administered, Parents must now see plainly that their children should have the truth as to their physical beings and that, having this, uutold good will result." "Kiilure generations, following, are hmintf'to demonstrate the benefits of Oregon's clean manhood, as set forth offU iiilly," commented A. Floge' nroslitent of tho Society. "This rec onl cannot be overestimated. It is glorious achievement." "Vlia full significance of the official announcement from Dr. Blue Is dif ficult to grasp,'' said Adolplie Wolfe treasurer of tho Society. "Dealing as it does with human life and morals, it Is, in a lurgor sense, m.ire Important than many other achievements, not to detract one whit from any of them. At the outset, many good people doubted tho ability of the Oreson So cial Ilysiene Society to BccompHB! worthwhile results. I think now, however, no further comment 'need bo had. SurRi-on-Cleneral Blue's tele gram Is sufficient." Lieutenant-Colonel P. C. Field, di vision Burgeon of the 91st Division at Camp Lewis, has officially credited the splendid record nudo by Oregon men to the educational work that has been and Is being time by the Oregon Social Hygiene Society. Little Things Cause Sunshine. The sunshine of life Is made up of very little lieniiis that tire bright nil the time. To give up something, when glvltilT up will prevent unhni'l'lm'ss: to yield, .when persisting will chnfe and fret others; to go n little nroutul rath er than come ngnlnst another ; to take nn III look or n cross word quietly, rather than resent or return It these tire the ways In which clouds nud storms are kept ofT, and a pleasant unci steady sunshine secured.

Mexico extends in, length over two thousand miles, or Is as- long as from Icelund to Africa. It measures a thou sand miles across the widest area. It Is vast, it contains every climate from tropical to northern ; It has huge moun tains, some of the greatest volcanoes In the world ; and some of tbe largest rivers ore to be found in the 'south, although water Is lucking In the north. The north is flat nnd hideous, the south beautiful and mountainous. Mexico produces every class of ore and every form of agriculture and some of tbe most picturesque and beautiful old Spanish towns in the world remain from the days when they were built by Cortez lu 1519. One cannot help being struck with the contrast between the two coasts. Oa the Pacific shore everything Is dry ; on the Gulf (Atlantic) everything Is wet A depth of eight or ten feet ol foil is common. From "Mexico," by Mrs. Alec-Tweedie. . Arabian Tabla Customs.
