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

In combating venereal diseases

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
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
"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. Aikin.

Vastness of Mexico.
It cannot be reiterated too often
thnt Mexico Is a vast country.
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. .
