FESTIVITIES ARE DELAYED
Outsiders Put on Board for Oral
Tests to Check Up on Work.

The last week of studies for Reed
College seniors is at hand and while
the end of the year is supposed to be
particularly pleasant, as it is the first
class the members of the faculty are
postponing- their kind deeds for a week.
In the meantime the "exams" will be
coming along with monotonous regu
larity. Each senior has to take a final oral
examination before several members
of the faculty including his major pro
fessor and also some person not other
wise connected with the college. Most
of these oral "exams" already have
been held during the past few weeks
but there are a number scheduled for
The examinations last usually an
hour but in case the examiners have
failed to stick the student in that time
they are at liberty to stretch the time
out a little and redouble their efforts
to find out if there is anything he
does not know. In other cases they
find it necessary to stretch the time
In an. effort to find a question that
he can answer. Most of the seniors
have done fairly well on the oral
quizzes though a few have become
more or less "fussed" during the ordeal.
Outsider Check I'p on Work.
The presence of an outside person
tin the examining board serves to
check up on the work of each depart
ment and should have the effect of
preventing a department from going
stale and losing connection with the
progress in the particular field. The
idea of having several members of the
faculty on the examining board serves
to co-ordinate the work of the vari

European Tariffs Heavy.
European countries are not only pro
tected in competition at home from
Northwest condensed milk by their
cheaper cost of production, but have
the further protection of heavy tariffs
on condensed and evaporated milk. The
Underwood tariff bill puts condensed
nilk and evaporated milk on the Amer
can free list and since Its passage there
has been heavy importation of these
products from Europe.
The war for a few months lessened
the volume of these importations, but
they have nearly resumed normal again.
In January. February and March, 191o,
for example, 50,000 cases came through
the port of New York, displacing lust
so many cases of native manufacture.
Tabulation of costs of producing raw
milk show the following:
United States. $1.56 a hundredweight;
Switzerland, $1.55; Norway, $1.50; Eng
land, $1.44: Germany. $1.44; Denmark.
$1.20; Holland, $1.09; Sweden. 99 cents;
Ireland, 95 cents.
The differential in favor of Ireland la
thus 61 cents a hundredweight, or
about 40 per cent. In favor of Den
mark, a heavy raw milk producer, it
is 36 cents. In all these countries there
is an enormous production of raw milk
far in excess of local and city con
sumption, which releases large sup
plies for the manufacture of condensed

these products come into direct, compe

Europe, neither can it export to Aus
tralia or to Siberia, On the contrary,
large quantities actually are brought
into the Pacific States from these two
countries last named." said Director II.
"The problem under the present tariff
is thus to find a market for by-products.
We have a condensed milk market of

sot out to develop a vast raw milk
production for condensed milk manu
facture in this state and Washington
so long as we have to compete with
present conditions. Skimmed condensed
milk, a thin and unnutritious by
product, is still in demand among the
Chinese, but it remains to be seen how
good a market could be worked up.

MR. DALY IS CRITICISED
ATTEMPT TO MAKE ECONOMY SHOW.
IU AT rCBLIC EXPENSE ANGEKS.
Maps Drawn By Fire Hares a Indicate
Where Hydrants hould Go,
bat ot One ls Put In.
That City Commissioner Daly has
stored up much trouble for himself
by following out the policy of con
structing new water mains without
putting in fire hydrants, ostensibly for
the purpose of matting the Water
Bureau operation costs look small, ls
apparent from the complaints which
are beginning to reach the City Council
from various parts of the city.
Although the practice always has
been to put in the fire nydrants when
mains are constructed Commissioner
Daly adopted the policy last November
of leaving off the fire hydrants regard
less of how badly they are needed for
lire protection in residence districts.
Construction of new mains has gone
ahead all Winter, many mile of mains
having been laid, yet not a single fire
hydrant has been put in on these mains.
And this in spite of the fact that hun
dreds of hydrants all ready to install
are piled in the Water Bureau storage
yards on the East Side.
Ordinarily there would have been con
structed between last November and
the present 250 to 300 hydrants. These
would have cost about $23,000. This
amount will go to make up the "econo
my" showing of the Water Bureau for
the year. It will be credited as $J3.00U
The first district to protest against
the hydrantless mains was Lents. A
Bull Kun main was put through Lents,
a distance of more than two miles,
without a single fire hydrant being put
in. Although the Lents district is well
settled and contributes annually to the
water funds and Is paying for the
water mains constructed there, the dis
trict is Just as badly off from a fire
standpoint as it was before the ma'n
was laid. The Lents residents appeared
before the Council last week to protest
against the Daly policy of putting in
A part of the Irvington district Is
in the same boat. A delegation will
appear before the Council Wednesday
to ask the installation of hydrants on
mains laid there. It is expected other
districts will be up in arms as soon
as it becomes realized fully that the
Daly policy means no fire protection in
The Fire Bureau Is much interested
in the proposition. Continuously since
last November the places where fire
hydrants are needed on new mains have
been designated on plans furnished by
the Water Bureau, but not one of these
hydrants has been Installed.
