George W. Joseph Says Oregon
Should Devote $500,000
TOO MUCH," SAY OTHERS
Senator Malarkey Believes That
'$350,000 to $300,000 Is Sum
, dent Senator Mollis Op
poses This Amount.
"I favor a liberal appropriation for
the Oregon exhibit at the Panama
Pacific Exposition at San Francisco In
1915." said Senator George W. Joseph
yesterday. "I am a devout believer In
the gospel according to C. C. Chapman,
that a man, a community or a state
must toot its own horn, or verily the
same shall not be tooted, and Oregon
should make a showing at the big fair
commensurate with her importance in
the sisterhood of Pacific Coast States.
'While the amount may seem
trifle larce at first blush. I believe
that Oregon could not do better than
to appropriate $500,000. She has the
best location on the fair grounds, and
she should have the best exhibit. That
is. not necessarily the roost expensive
building, but the most representative
showing of her manifold resources. No
other state has so much to snow, so
many important Interests that deserve
Reaoarrea Are Varied.
"There's the fishing interests, for In
stance. The whole world demands Co
lumbia River salmon because it knows
that It Is the best that is canned. The
whole world .will be at San Francisco,
and will be Interested In knowing how
the rich. red. finely flavored Chinook
finds Its way from the sea to Its tables.
"The lumbering Industry, and the
state's latent resources in timber: the
mining Industry, showing the richness
and diversity of our mineral wealth:
the livestock Industry, Including dairy
and fat stock, sheep and hogs, not for
getting the fact that Oregon is an
Ideal state for poultry; with the fruit
industry In Its various phases of plant
ing, pioklng and packing, and the hop
Industry these are a few of the things
that I would like to see 'played up' at
San Francisco. Not only should their
present development be emphasized,
but the visitor should be made to
understand that there Is still plenty of
room for development in all these
"We bave the poods and we should
show- them." declared Mr. Joseph.
"While a half a million may seem like
a lot of money to spend for advertising,
and while it is possible that Oregon
can make a creditable showing on leas
than that. I am sure that it would be
bread upon the waters that would come
back many fold, and I shall introduce
an appropriation bill early in the ses
sion calling for that amount. I notice
that a similar bill, for a like amount,
will be introduced in the Washington
Fair la For Whole Coast.
"This is not California's fair, nor San
Francisco's fair. It belongs to the
whole world, bat peculiarly it will be
for the benefit of the three Pacific
Coast states. The eyes of the world
will be on ua. We will be in the spot
light, and we must look our best."
The fact that California appropriated
but 90.000 for the Lewis and Clark
Exposition Is having its influence
against so large an appropriation as is
proposed by Senator Joseph. Senator
Malarkey. candidate for president of
the Senate, believes that an amount
from $250,000 to $300,000 should be suf
ficient. Senator Hollls. of Washington,
Tillamook. Yamhill and Lincoln, be
lieves that $250,000. the amount fa
vored by Senator Smith, of Josephine,
is too much.
San Diego, maintaining that she will
be the Pacific port of most importance
with the completion of the Panama
Canal, is having a fair In 1915, and
wants an appropriation. But little
sentiment has been heard In favor of
the San Diego appropriation, as the
general opinion is that Oregon should
put -all her eggs . In one basket and
make as good a showing as possible
at the big show at San Francisco.

Responsive to a request from Clerk
Thomas, of-the Board of Education, for
an interpretation of the initiative bill
enacted by the people In the recent
election regarding county high schools,
Attorney-General Crawford has ren
dered an opinion holding In substance
that when the capacity of established
high schools In the cities is exhausted,
entrance of students from otuside ter
rltory to municipal high schools can be
gained only by the payment of tuition
raised through a direct county tax tn
tended specifically to cover that cost.
In his opinion the Attorney-General
entertains a doubt if a city high school
when crowded to its capacity, can be
forced to receive and make provision
for students from those sections of the
county outside the corporate limits of
the municipality until It has been given
assurance of proper compensation.
J. H. Nolta and other representatives
from East Side commercial organiza
tlons appeared before the Board and
urged the location of the proposed
trades school on the East Side, where,
it was contended, desirable building
sites could be obtained at more attrac.
tlve figures than on the West Side.
Fand la Depleted.
R. L. Sabln. actfng chairman, ex
plained to the committee that the Board
was without available lunds witn
which to make the purchase of a site
for a new trades school until the voters
of the district, at the annual meeting,
December 27. should authorize a pro
posed bond issue of $1,000,000 to take
care of the new high school and other
needed Improvements. Other members
of the Board explained that an addi
tional half block had already been ac
quired immediately west of the Lincoln
high school as a probable site for the
new trades school. Director Flelschner
assured the East Side delegation that
If provision should be made for the
trades school on this side of the river,
another trades school eventually would
be provided for the East Side.
George A. Brodle and other memoers
of a committee .addressed the Board
with an invitation for its members to
attend a meeting at the Creston School
next Monday night, when speakers
would be in attendance to present the
desirability of installing in that school
an agricultural department. The Invi
tation -was accepted.
Lnnrelhurat Petition Heard.
Dr. J. D. Fenton, Dr. E. A. Pierce and
others, constituting a committee from
the Laurelhurst district, submitted to
the Board a prospective site for a new
school building to meet the require-
ents of the pupils residing in iaurei-
hurst. ' It was referred to an appropri
The Board acceded to the request of
Otto J. Kraemer, representing the Ore
gon Humane Society, that students
of the high schools be per
mitted to take part in a competitive
essay contest for which three prizes of
$12.50, $7.50 and $5 have, been offered.
A list of 2subjects will be submitted
by the society, from which contestants
may make their selection as to a sub
ject for their essay.
Before adjourning,' Director Munly
suggested the advisability of the Board
employing a consulting architect. It
was the contention of Mr. Munly that
the Boafa was paying too much for the
construction and modification of its
school buildings. After some discus
sion it was tentatively agreed that
Clerk Thomas should ascertain from
prominent architects in Denver and St.
Louis the cost of comlng..to Portland
