Mr. W. A. Fisher and Miss
Bertha Fowler Speaker.
GRANTS PASS. Or, March 87. (Spe
cial.) The missionary parliament now
In session here opened today with a
notable Increase In attendance due to
many arrivals from outside cities and
towns both north and south on early
morning trains and a thorough arousal
of local Interest In the meetings.
Chnrch people of all denominations are
well represented. The programme was
carried out almost exactly as outlined.
Much Is being; done to entertain the
visitors from various parts of the
United States, Japan and China as well
as all delegates sent by various dis
tricts of Oregon. Luncheon waa served
by members of the Methodist Church
today and accommodations are fur
nished at all hotels.
One hour this morning was taken
up by the ministers' institute. At 10
o'clock. Rev. Henry R. Calkins gave a
, discourse on '"Stewardship of Prayer"
showing the necessity of faith and
honesty of purpose in prayer ana tnat
even in darkest India, Africa and Asia,
where Mohammedanism flourishes there
are faith and honesty of purpose.
Mr. Calkins emphasized the fact that
Jesus Christ did not teach his dis
claims to m-ay but rather how to pray.
Dr. Walter Sklpworth talked on the
subject of "Sunday schools, and their
present-day opportunities." He empha
sised the advancement made ty bunoay
schools since the establishment of the
board. He said that in 1908 nearly all
Sunday schools In the United States
were either stationary or showed a
decrease In attendance and then ex
plained the method of building them up
and commented on the enormity of
work done at the present time.
In the absence of one of the speak
era, Rev. Henry J. Coker made a plea
for the neglected child. Mrs. A. W
Fisher, of the board of foreign mis
sions, gave an interesting discourse on

Scott, secretary of the Commercial Club,
returned to the city yesterday with a
portion of his hair gone. Mr, Bloom
had been working In the garden and

taking a nap after lunch last week,
when a squirrel that has been making
Its home In the house this Winter,
evidently thinking his long black locks
would make an excellent lining for a
nest trimmed off a portion of the hair
while he slept.
"The rodent's teeth must have been
sharp." says the photographer, "for I
could scarcely feel him at work there
cutting away the hair. I must have
moved In my sleep and In his excite
ment he evidently pulled some of the
hairs out Instead of cutting them. This
awoke me and I let out a yell that
almost frightened the squirrel to death.

WOOD'S POLICIES UPHELD
Secretary Garrison In Sympathy
With Chief or strr.
OREGOXIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, March 25. Democratic politi
cians may get the scalp of Major-Gen
eral Leonard Wood, as chief of staff of
the Army, but they will not destroy the
Wood policies. This was made plain
by the retent announcement of Secre
tary Garrison, the new head of the War
Department, who in a signed statement
completely indorsed the reforms In
augurated by General Wood, and at the
same time took Issue with Chairman

he havtng been chosen chief of staff
In April. 1S10. Of this there is a slight
doubt, however, because Congressional
pressure is strong on the President and
Secretary of War to eelect another
head for the Army. General wood has
made many enemies since he became
chief of staff. Most of his enemies are
politicians, amis It Is these political
enemies who are barking at his heels.
Inasmurh, however, as Secretary
Garrison has placed his stamp of ap
proval unon the reforms inaugurated
by General Wood, and has gone to the
extent of committing himself to the
legislative policy, advocated by the
chief of staff. It will be difficult for
the politicians aforesaid to force him
back Into the line before his four-year
detail Is completed. If the Secretary of
War. speaking with the approval of
President Wilson, approves unreserved
ly the Wood policies, it would be" In
