M. C. A. HAS NEW MAN OX
SI. F. Skartvedt.
With the recent opening of the
physical department of the
Young Men's Christian Associa
tion, a new assistant director,
M. F. Skartvedt, was added to
the staff. The large increase in
attendance made the employ
ment of an additional director
necessary. The time of A. M.
Grilley and his assistants is
fully occupied with the work of
the department, the enrollment,
especially in the business men's
classes, being considerably in
excess of last year.
Mr. Skartvedt was formerly
physical director at Washington
and Lincoln High Schools. In his
work at the Y. M. C. A. he has
charge of the young men's class,
one of the largest organizations
of the physical department. ,

Mrs. Clyde Reads Before Flight Se
cures Description of Man She
Surprises on Return Home.
. Xo Loot Is Secured.
Proving the theory that a woman
will always do that which she is told
not to do, Mrs. Clyde H. Reade, a
young society matron, on entering her
apartment in the Wilmar Wednesday
afternoon, caused a burglar, whom she
encountered, no little alarm.
The man was standing behind the
bedroom door when Mrs. Reade en
tered the door leading to her apart
ment, and when she asked him "what
he was doing there" he boldly stepped
forth and pushed a gun Into her face,
demanding that she "come right in
here and shut up."
Mrs. Reade promptly proceeded to
scream with all her might and main
and ran down the hall, the burglar
pursuing her and saying: "Keep quiet
or I'll kill you."
Instead of obeying, the little woman
continued to scream and run, but,
being hampered by a tight skirt and a
few bundles (she was returning from
a marketing trip), she was unable to
elude the burglar, who overtook her
on the floor below. Seizing her, the
robber told her to go upstairs as fast
as she could, "and keep quiet or get
shot." Mrs. Reade for the first time
obeyed the "bossy" burglar.
Mrs. Reade describes him as slender,
of medium height, not at all desperate
looking, with blue eyes and light hair.
One thing which impressed her
strongly was the fact that he wore a
dashing purple necktie and a brown
hat and was "pale as a ghost."
The man left without taking anything.
Mrs. Reade notified the janitor of
the building, but no trace of the In
truder was found. No one In the build
ing heard Mrs. Reade's screams, but
several people across the street, who
heard her cries for help, went to give

Portland Railway May Finish, Ap
praisement Loss by Ordinance
Means $382,000 Annually.
Upon announcement by President
Griffiths, of the Portland Railway,
Light & Power Company, that his com
pany has been unable to complete fig
ures to use in contesting the proposed
passage of an ordinance by the City
Commission requiring the sale of six
car tickets for 25 cents, the Commis
sion yesterday voted 3 to 2 to grant
the company an extension of 10 days
time. This arrangement was favor
able to representatives of various clubs
and organizations of the city, who were
on hand to appeal for the passage oi
the reduction measure.
President Griffiths declared that his
company has spent J50,000 In preparing
a statement of appraisement or prop
erty anj objected strongly to the Com
mission throwing all of this into the
discard without giving It any consid
eration. He said he could have the re
port completed within 10 days. The
Commission, on motion of Commission
er Brewster, voted to give the company
10 lays to complete the report and giva
the Commission 20 days to Investigate
It, after which the measure will coma
up for final passage.
This plan was supported oy commis
sioners Brewster and Dieck and by
Mayor Albee, while Commissioners Daly
and Bisrelow favored immediate pas
saee of the ordinance. The Mayor in
favorinsr the extension, said that ms
leanings were toward passing the ordi
nance, but he considered It fair to the
company to permit It to get its case
fairly before the Commission.
President Griltlths in an address de
clared that the reduction of .fares
would mean about $382,000 a year loss
to the company in revenue. He said
this loss naturally would curtail the
making of improvements and exten
sions. He said that it is unwise for a
city to take snap judgment on an or
dinance which means but little to the
patrons of the company, the reduction
beinr only one-hair cent on eacn tare
and the aggregate loss to the company
amounting to more than 11000 a day.
Frank Motter. of the Kast side, rep
resenting booster clubs, declared that
opposed the ordinance because it
would mean the curtailment of the op
erations of the company In line exten
