AT MMOLX HIGH SCHOOL,

Customs of India to Be Dla- -cussed
for Clnba Benefit.
"English. Rule in Egypt" will be the
subject of a' lecture given by Albert
E. Bailey, graduate of Harvard Uni
versity and extensive traveler, at the
Lincoln High School auditorium Tues
day' at 8:15 P. M. On Thursday evening

tures will be given under the auspices
of the School Benefit Society, of this
city, the proceeds going to purchase
pictures and other decorations for the
school buildings of Portland.
The lecture, "English Rule in Egypt."
was given in Berkeley a few days ago
by Mr. Bailey, and, according to a let
ter received in this city, it is a most
comprehensive and interesting outline
of the situation in that country.
H. C. Campbell, of Portland, has
known Mr. Bailey personally since
1905, and he speaks highly of him. Mr.
Campbell met Mr. Bailey in Egypt In
1905 and traveled with him through
that country and through Palestine,
Syria aid countries in Europe. They
visited Egypt together again in 1914,
and traveled through Soudan. Syria
and the country surrounding the Red
Mr. Bailey has just returned from a
year in India, where he made a study
of the religions of that land.
Thursday night's lecture will be ac

scenes in India, particularly those per
taining to the methods of worship and
religious customs of the country.
Calf Ownership Taxes Men
of Law's Wisdom.
Mnlny Volumes Kail to Proiide Dis
posal of Offspring of Cow At
tached for $35.
ALTHOUGH she is only three days
old, a Jersey calf Is already prov
ing a puzzle to constables, lawyers,
judges and all manner of county of
ficials. Many musty volumes have been
pulled down from the shelves of the
Multnomah County Law Library in an
effort to learn who is properly the
owner of the calf.
The mother, Clarice, is a blooded Jer
sey cow. Some time ago Adrian Ander
egg sold her to E. C. Armett for $80.
All of this was paid except J35, and
Anderegg sued Armett. He attached
Clarice several days ago. The calf was
born while its mother was under at
tachment. Who owns the calf? Dep
uty Constable Nicholson was in a
quandary, and appealed to numerous
legal lights about the Courthouse for
Ordinarily the title to the calf would
follow the title to the mother, is the
opinion of the lawyers. But Anderegg
did not attach the calf. On the other
hand, he probably would have attached
the calf if it had been living at the
Somebody carried the case to Circuit
Judge Gatens and asked his opinion.
"Well," he said, "as a juvenile judge,
I am unalterably opposed to separating
a .child from its mother. Let Clarice
keep her offspring."
Anderegg and Armett are both claim
ing the calf, and one of the district
judges will have to decide who gets it.
"The trouble is," said Deputy Con
stable Nicholson, "that it's a heifer calf.
If it wasn't, we might settle the case
on a basis of so many pounds of veal
to each man."
