Eugene, Or. One of the most out
standing contributions to science yot
made by a University of Oregon man
that admits of practical use in the
Pacific northwest and elsewhere be
came public In the announcement
that O. F. Stafford, head of the uni
versity chemistry deportment, has per
fected a process for utilising waste
wood to obtain a superior grade of
charcoal and wood distillation products
used in a number of baslo Industries.
Because of the great quantity of
cheap waste wood material available
in tho northwest, it is believed that
tho lumber Industry and other enter
prises will be keenly Interested in
Professor Stafford's sueoess. Hereto
fore it has not been commercially
practicable to utilize mill waste In the
carbonization and wood distillation in
dustries. By the Stafford proces a fine grade
of charcoal can be obtained as well
as the UBual by-producta tl carboniza
tion, acetic acid, acetone and wood
alcohol, basic In the manufacture of
such articles aB dye, paints, varnishes,
celluloid, smokeless powder and arti

BIG OBJECT OF U. S.
American Loan to Germany at
Present Held "Idle"
Washington, D. C. Adjustment of
tho reparations dispute between Lon
don and Paris is the crux of tho Euro
pean tangle, in the American view
point, as stated hero on competent
authority. Talk of any American loan
to Germany was described as "ldlo"
until such an adjustment had been
It also was made clear that tho ques
tion of allied war debts to tho United
States was not viewed in Washington
as involved In tho Anglo-French dif
ferences as to the amount Germany
can pay. Beyond this official spokes
men refused to go in outlining what
tho Washington government had In
mind. There was no hint as to the
purposes or progress of informal dls
otiBslons with allied leaders, 7hich
have been indicated both here and
abroad to be under way.
With the field of operation thus nar
rowed, howovor, It was evident in of
ficial talk that administration hopes
that American influence can aid in
the European situation were quite gen
erally believed to bo based on possi
bilities that may result In bringing
British and French thought into har
mony as to Germany's present eco
nomic plight and capacity to pay.
In this connection it is known that
in some diplomatic quarters one Im
pression prevails that American par
ticipation In seme form when tho
council of premiere resumes Its ses
sions in Paris January a is te be expected.
0. S, INTERVENES TO
Lausanne America again inter
vened in tho Lausanne conference
when Ambassador Washburn Child, ad
dressing the sub-commission on minor
ities, declared that the United States
vigorously disapproves of tho proposed
removal of the Greek patriarchate
"The proposal to abolish or remove
the patriarchate from Constantinople,"
said the ambassador, "Is vigorously
disapproved by large Oodles of Ameri
cans. We point out that the patri
archate was confirmed not by foreign
ers, but by Turkey herself. Intoler
able injustlco will be done If it is abol
ished. We have adequate evidence for
this viewpoint In telegrams from large
bodies of our population."
Lord Curzon, In his note to Ismet
Pasha on tho Mosul question, declared
that aside from the fact Mosul reoelved
a mandate from tho leaguo of nations
and therefore only tho latter has a
right to restore it, there are racial,
political, hlstorica) and strategic rea
sons why England cannot give back
Mosul to tbe Turks.
TO ADVISE LOWER FARM TAX
Commission Wl(l Reoommend to Leg
islature a 20 per oent Out.
Portland, Or. In a djreot attempt
to relieve tho burden of tbe farmers
of Oregon, tho state tax investigation
committee deolded to recommend to
tho legislature amendment of tho tax
laws so that farm lands and improve
ments thereon be assessed not to ex
ceed 80 per cent of that now borne;
this reduction to be effective until
there Is a revaluation of all tbe prop
erty of the state.
Tho recommendation is one of the
most sweeping that the commltteo
will submit in Us report to the legisla
ture next month.
There is but one opinion In the
committee on on income tax, and that
Is tho advisability of suoh a measure.
There has been a difference of opinion
as to whether there should be a flat
rate or a progressive rate. The com
mittee, by maJorltyr favors the former.
Germany Would Welcome Suggestions,
Berlin. Germany will cordially wel
come any suggestions from the United
States as to tho reparations situation,
It was announcod following a confer
ence of administration leaders, at
which Premier Cuno and others ex
plained tho crisis.
