I knew Herman Wittenberg from
boyhood." said I. X. Fleischner, "and
I was closely associated wltb him In

foremost enterprises. Together we
served on the board of directors of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition, the Mer

Chamber of Commerce, the Board of
Education and many other public and
private organisations. He waa a man
of energy and a hard worker. While
on the Board or Education ne waa
deeply Interested and gave much of his
time to the work during the ten years
that he was a member. I have seen
blm many a time excoriate bitterly
someone he believed was attempting to
take unjust advantage of the Board.
He was strictly conscientious, and
wanted others to be the same. In his
death Portland and the entire state
have suffered an Irreparable loss. Men
like him are rare."
EXTRAVAGANCE IS HIT
AD CLm SPEAKER PLEADS IJOR
E. D. Timms Declare World Is
Looking for Men Who Do Not
Live to Re "In Swim."
"A large percentage of the young
business men of Portland." aald E. T.
Timms. addressing the Ad Club at Its
luncheon yesterday on Reformation of
the Business Man. "are living far be
yond their means. And If you want
to know what the substantial business
men think about, they think that a
man who continually spends more than
he earns Is a fool for doing It."
In a speech that biased with keen
epigrams, Mr. Ttmms protested against
what he declared was prevailing tend
ency to extravagance for the sake of
keeping up appearances and "being In
"When I say young business men."
said he. by way of taking the sharp
edge off his remarks, "understand tbat
I mean we" myself, perhaps, aa well
as anyone else.
"I am not considering the matter
from a moral aspect, and am not try
ing to make this a sermon. If a man
baa reached a stage of business solid

but to the young man they are wrong

He pointed out automobiles as one

be declared, and cited an Incident of
a young business man who applied
for a loan at a bank with no security
to offer except a home already mort
gaged and a 11500 automobile.
"And he wondered why hla security
was not good," aald Mr. Timms. "He
could not see tbat secured under snob
means his automobile was not an asset,
but a liability.
"The consuming desire of the present
day men seems to be to 'make a flash.'
But when yon have made your flash
and come to a substantial banker for
assistance. It turns out that. In his
eyes. It was a flash of powder and you
are the smoke."
Mr. Timms declared that men who
bewailed their environment were of
fering no excuse for extravagance, for
a man can choose his environment, and
that the man who held that the world
owed him a living waa nothing better
than a hobo.
H. C Noble, general passenger agent
for the Great Northern, was a guest
at the luncheon and gave a short ad
dress on co-operation In advertising.
President Clarke announced the ap
pointment of the committees for 1)12
