Instead of selecting sites for the
proposed new Couch and Shattuck
school buildings, the School Board
designated 4 o'clock next Monday as
the time when arguments would be
heard in behalf of the various proper
ties, preceding the announcement of
the official selections of the Board,
which may be made at the same meet
ing. Yesterday had been appointed as the
date for the hearing but George W.
Thomas, president of the South Port
land Boosters' Club, requested that the
decision of the Board be withheld until
after the people of South Portland had
met tomorrow night and recommended
one particular site to the Board..
Charles H. Dodd, a member' of the
School Board from 1884-1889 and a
resident of the Shattuck school dis
trict, entered strong objection against
the purchase of any new school prop
erty in that locality.
Present Bite Is TJra-ed.
"What's the use of buying any of
these expensive blocks when we
already have good property where the
present Shattuck school stands? he
asked. "There is plenty of room in
the old and unused Failing building
and elsewhere to take care of the chil
dren while a new building is being
erected on the present Sattuck site.
'Why allow this spirit of extrava
gance to go on from day to day when
the taxes are already so high? Put a
good school on the present Shattuck
site and the taxpayers will thank you."
I think he Is right," commented Mr.
The school is now located on the
block bounded by Fifth, Sixth, Hall
and Harrison streets.
Dr. Sommer moved that the discus
sion and decision on the school sites be
deferred until next Monday and the
motion prevailed over the objection of
Director Hummer and Charles War
rens, of the Couch district.
Conch Decision Vrgced.
Mr. Warrens thaught that the Couch
selection Bhould be threshed, out im
mediately, inasmuch as the people of
that district had some time ago ex
pressed their choice as to location.
'Ever since these options began
coming in several weeks ago we have
been receiving new bids which, have
pruned the former quotations quite
materially, said Chairman Sabin. "And
I believe that by waiting we have been
making money for the district as fast
"This intense feeling of rivalry and
interest that has been manifest in
these two school districts since the
consideration of these sites oame up
is one of the most encouraging signs
I have seen in a long time. Right at
the time some hasty words may be
exchanged between the competing

Anaoeiatea Oil Company, of California,
Falls to Obtain Exemptions and
Attorney Announces Appeal.
Multnomah County and the State of
Oregon may tax accounts receivable of
foreign corporation on business done
in this county and state. Circuit Judge
McOlnn ruled yesterday In the appeal
taken by the Associated Oil Company,
of California, from the decision of the
board of equalization which refused to
allow the company any exemptions. At
torney Erskine Wood who argued the
case for the oil company, announcea
after Judge McGinn's ruling that an
appeal would be taken to the Supreme
Objection to the assessment of the
accounts made through the Portland
representative of the company was
made on the ground that the contracts
for the sale of the company's output
is finally approved and filled at the San
Francisco office, where all bills are
payable: that the local representative
has only limited authority, and acts
merely as an agent of the company.
The company made no objection to
payment of taxes on $20,000 worth of
tangible property in the state, but
contended that the tax assessed by
Mr. Reed on JS0.000 notes and accounts
should be exempt in Oregon.
Similar accounts involving approxi
mately $250,000 were assessed last year
by Mr. Reed, to wnicn an appeal proD
ably would have been taken tiad Judge
McGinn allowed the exemption. Mr.
Reed said that he expects no further
objections from such property holders.
We wish to thank our friends for the
kindness shown us and for the beauti
ful floral offerings in our recent be
reavement in the loss of our father.
