Several New Portable Build
ings May Be Provided to
Meet Emergency This Fall.
DEAF PUPILS NOT TO MOVE
Committee Named by School Board
and Given Power to Act on Pe
titions of Alameda, Berkley
and Moreland Delegations.
Lack of school accommodations in
their districts (or the approaching term
was the plea of three delegations of
Portland citizens before the Board of
Education yesterday afternoon with re
quests for relief.
A special committee with power to
act, of which Dr. Alan W. Smith is
chairman, was appointed to make im
mediate investigation of complaints.
Several new portable schools may be
the result of the committee findings.
Representatives from Alameda Park.
Berkeley and Eastmoreland districts
went away pleased with the prospects,
but, upon the refusal of Chairman M. G.
Munly to give a definite promise as to
what would be done in their case, the
Richmond delegation of women left the
meeting in indignation.
Deaf Students Not to Move.
The plea of Mrs. C. A. Ward that the
deaf students not be placed with the
defective students, made at the meeting
previous, bore fruit, the recommenda
tion of the teachers' committee that the
school for the deaf not be transferred
from the Buckman building to the Allen
School being adopted. It was said that
there was no need for relief at the
Buckman School through other adjust
ments in the department, and that if
there became such a need the deaf stu
dents could be placed in the Stephens
School rather than with the defective

Committee to Investigate.
With power to order the construction
at once, if thought necessary, a com
mittee consisting of Alan W. Smith,
chairman, O. M. Plummer and J. V.
Beach, was appointed by the chairman
to give the matter immediate considera
tion. Jacob Kanzler was spokesman for the
Eastmoreland, Argyle Heights and
Berkeley additions. He asked that a
portable school be erected for the fifth
and sixth grades in that district, and.
if possible, for the grades higher. H. F.
Reinhardt and J. L. Griflin made the
same plea, and the matter was referred
to the same committee.
Asserting that a new building had
been promised nearly a year ago and
that nothing had been done about it,
Mrs. J. F. Chapman asked for three
more portable schoolrooms for the Rich
mond district domestic science and
manual training departments, or the
completion of the school begun. The
matter of finishing the school building
Is still in the hands of the building
committee and construction engineers
of the department.
Woman Demands Action.
When the chairman said this matter
would be referred to the same special
committee, one of the members of the
delegation rose and indignantly de
clared that she thought they were en
titled to more than promises; that they
had lived on promises which had not
been fulfilled, and tiiat they wanted ac
tion. The chairman replied that no
promises had been made in his recol
lection, or could have been made with
The recommendations on fire hazards
made by H. P. Boardman were placed
on file. The Board accepted the invi
tation of Commissioner W. L. Brewster
to attend the meeting of the committee
on unemployed at the Council Chamber
at 2:30 this afternoon. A room in the
old Failing building was offered for
the use of the city free dental clinic.
Participation in the Manufacturers' and
Euud Products Show was referred to
the teachers' committee.
The request of the City Christian En
deavor Union that the night school be
placed on the same basis as the day

Culvet. of the Lincoln School, a two
weeks' leave, and Alice M. Johnson, of
the Arleta School, a leave of absence

The offer of five blocks at the inter
section of Jefferson and Chapman
streets to tha School Board for $148,000

Six contracts and bonds were approved.
Claims amounting to $41,373.70 were

High School Site Selected.
It was voted to waive former action
of July 16. 1914. and to purchase the
Tenney tract for a high school site,
omitting the dedication of a 30-foot
strip along the south end of the
Matthews tract for a road.
Principal S. F. Ball's plan of placing
tiie commercial department of the
Franklin High School In the South
Mount Tabor building, and other de
partments in the Creston building, was
approved. As the Allen School will not
be used to relieve the Hawthorne, it
was voted to rent only as much as
would be needed for the school for de
fectives. The report of Superintendent of
Properties Naramore, relating to new

and improvement of grounds, was

MAYOR DECIDES POINT
MOTION PICTURE CENSOR BOARD IS
DECLARED TO BE OFFICIAL.
Contention of Mrs. Newill Sustained by
Executive, Who Asserts Right to
Power of Appointment.
Mayor Albee yesterday brought to a
close a controversy which has been on
for some time past between members of
the Board of Motion-Picture Censors re
garding the standing of members of
the Board whether they were to be
appointed by the various women's or
ganizations or whether they were to
be appointed by the Mayor. The Mayor
ruled in a letter sent to the Board that
the Board has an official standing and
is not a delegated body, and that the
executive has the appointing power.
The trouble started recently, it Is
said, when President Frankel. of the
Woman's Club, announced appoint
ments, soon after her election., She
named three women who were to rep
resent the club oil the Censorship
Board, it having been understood that
the Board members were named by the
various organizations that brought
about the censorship plan and named
the members of the first Board. Mrs.
A. C. Newill, who was the retiring
president of the Woman's Club, had
delegated herself as that organization's
member of the Censorship Board. In
the new appointments, Mrs. Frankel did
not include Mrs. Newill. it is said.
Mrs. Millie Trumbull, a member of
the Board, insisted, it is said, that Mrs.
Newill retire from the Board and allow
one of the newly appointed women to
take her place. She did not insist upon
places being given all three of the ap
pointees. Mrs. Newill refused to retire,
declaring that the plan of the organi
zations appointing the members applied
only when the Board was first organ
ized. She insisted that the organiza
tions had no right to appoint new mem
bers, declaring that power rested with
It was in this form that the disputed
point was presented to Mayor Albee as
referee. He took the proposition under
advisement and yesterday sent a letter
to the Board announcing that the Board
was an official Board, the members of
which were appointed by the Mayor. He
announced the members to be Mrs. A. C
Newill, Mrs. A. M. Gray, Mrs. Sol Hart,
Mrs. Millie Trumbull and Mrs. Elmer
"PRAISE" PLAN IS OPPOSED.
Motion Picture Censors Unite In
Condemning Proposed Change.
In the opinion of members of the
board of motion picture censors, the
plan of having a board of praise rather
than a board of censors, as recom
mended by the committee headed by
Dr. W. T. Foster, of Reed College, ap
pointed by Mayor Albee last January
to investigate commercialized amuse
ment, will not work. Members of the
board of censors united yesterday in
the opinion that the system sounds
good on paper, but would neither be
practicable nor fair.

PRUNE ORDERS SLOW
Early Trade Is Filled and De
mand Is Lacking.
NO EXPORT BUSINESS
California 3Iarkct Is Firmer as Crop
Is Drying Out Light and Run
ning to Smaller Sizes East
ern Buyers Skeptical.
A little improvement Is reported in the
California prune market, but the local sit
uation shows no cnanse for the better, and
the market at the present time Is very
The Northwestern prune crop, according
to packyg, is turning- out probably 15 t
20 per cent larger than was figured upon
earlier in the season. The prices asked for
Oregon-Washington prunes were higher than
the California nriues. and for this reason
the only outlet has been the fancy trade
This trade is now supplied, and a surplu
of prunes exists here notwithstanding the
fact that the total Northwestern crop was
considerably below normal. No Oregon
prunes have been sold for export, as Cali
fornia has also undersold Oregon In tha
line of business. Dealers have now been
compelled to seek for orders, whereas, her'
tofore, the buyers came here.
The California prunes are drying out
mors than was expected, and are running
smaller in size, and this is responsible fo
the firmness of the Southern market. In
commenting on the situation a New York
trade report says:
"Buyers here either do not accept the re
ports corainjr 1 from California as well
founded or believe themselves to be suf
ficiently well protected on Fall and early
Winter requirements to be in a position
where they can afford to wait before placing
orders for further supplies. The situation
In Europe, they seem to think, is daily be
coming more discouraging for export busi
ness, and if the European consumption
should be cut off even with a crop
short as 90,000,000 pounds, as some esti
mates make it, California being dependent
on the home market could not maintain
prices at their present level.
"The present upward movement on the
Coast Is attributed to the fact that the crop
is drying out light and that short sellers
are covering. Added to this Is the report
that England is a buyer in the Coast mar
ket, though how much truth there may be
in that remains to be developed. Prices as
now quoted f. o. b. Coast show a wide
range as to seller, but those whose figures
are the highest are confident that the mar
net win be up to tnem, u it does not go
WHEAT MARKET FIRM AND HIGHER
Red Fife Sells at 05 Cents on Exchange.
Inquiry From East,
Wheat markets took an upward turn yes
terday. Local prices were from half i
cent to 3 cents higher. Chicago advances
ranged up to 3 cents and the Liverpool
market closed 2d higher for spot and 2d
higher for options.
At the noon sesssion of the Merchants
Exchange bids wcru raised sharply, but
sellers also asked more money. For bluestem
$1.12 was offered, a ris-j of 3 cents over th
preceding day's price, but there were no
sellers under $1.13. Forty-fold bids were
1 cent higher at 07 cents and club offers
were raised half a cent to 96 cents, but
no wheat was obtainable at these prices,
Only on red fife could the buyers and sellers
get together and 10,000 bushels changed
hands at 95 cents, a cent advance over
Other cereals were irregular In price
mostly lower. Oats were quoted 25 cents
cheaper at ?2S and barley was 50 to 7;
cents lower in bid prices. The San Fran
cisco barley market, on the other hand, was
arm and higher.
An important feature of the wheat situa
tiou was the Eastern inquiry. The opinion
prevails in some quarters that a consider
able amount of Northwestern wheat will be
shipped to the Atlantic seaboard via the
canal and there trans-shipped to Europe.
No business of this character has been
worked yet, so far as known,
Wheat farmers are sitting tight on their
crops and unless they loosen up soon trading
of all kinds may soon be brought to a stop.
The growers have been letting go of their
bluestem, but the other kinds of wheat are
being held back, evidently for bluestem
prices. There is reason to believe that the
supply of bluestem no.w;Jeft In first hands is
A wholesale grocer said yesterday: "The
manager of one of the flour mills up the
river has Instructed the jobber who ban
dies his dour not to sell any more of It, as
he cannot buy wheat. The Jobbing houses
and the banks are carrying the trade in
the wheat-growing sections, who, in turn,
are carrying the farmers. It is up to the
farmers, therefore, to sell enough wheat to
pay their bills, so the country merchants
can pay their bills due here and likewise
give the mills enough wheat to grind."

the Merchants Exchange as follows :
