Most soaps and prepared shampoos contain too much alkali. This dries the ccalp, makes the hair brittle, and is ery harmful. Just plain mulsified cocoanut oil (which is pure and en tirely gTeaseless) is much better than the most expensive soap or anything; else you can use for shampooing, as this can't possibly injure the hair. Simply moisten your hair with water end rub it in. One or two teaspoonfuls will make an abundance of rich. creamy lather, and cleanses the hair and scalp thoroughly. The lather rinses out easily and removes every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive oil.

(Continued From First Page.) NURSERYMEN WILL MEET Pacirio Coast Association Conven tiop Opens at Taooma. TACOMA, July 10. (Special.) Port land will be represented at the loth an nual convention of the Pacific Coast Association of Nurserymen, which will meet here for three days, beginning: to morrow. The programme will be one of the most interesting the association ever has had. A special effort is being made to bring landscape engineers and nursery men together for the better planting of trees in order that trees in the fu ture may be planted their proper dis tance apart and In proper places. Ore gon, Washington, British Columbia and California are Included in the association. session was given over to addresses by women educators of wide prominence and to an address by Mrs. Alexander Thompson, of The Dalles, Or., a member of the Oregon Legislature. In an address on "Women and Pre paredness," Josephine Corliss Preston, Superintendent of Public Instruction for 'Washington, described two types of women, the one who holds back her tears and bravely smiles as her son marches away to war, and the. other woman, whom she termed "the woman in the hammock." "Citizenship Beina; Tented." TVe wpmen who are here today rep resent the great army of women edu cators of this Nation," said Mrs. Pres ton "who are counted as next to the home in influence and responsibility in the training of the youth of our land. We, many of us, cannot give sons to the war. They are not ours to give. But we have an important part to play in this great life-struggle, nevertheless. Our country needs us. A great world of humanity needs us. The test of our citizenship has come. None may carry a Keener edge to satire than does Mrs. Alexander Thomp son, member of the Oregon legislature, who spoke on "Preparedness, a Veneer or a Fundamental; Which Will Our Schools Give Our Children?" Ueclar. ing that the title was a very fair ex ample of glittering generalities and vague phrases, common to present day patter, Mrs. Thompson discussed things as they are in the school world. Klla FlaKE lounK Greeted. "If mothers had been taught to think," said she, "the expensive cam paign now being financed by Con gress to teach economical management of the household would be unnecessary. The criminal waste of food and the speculation in food materials would not be a national disgrace, had we been given a proper reizytct lor these things which make for honesty and thrift." A greeting in accord with her hon ored place in education's ranks was accorded Ella Flagg Young, pf Chi cago, who spoke on "American Edu cation and the Inner Life." "The Inner life of which I shall speak has its foundations in the emo tions," said Mrs. Young. "It Is the unseen power initiating our Impulsive, unreasoned, insistent acts. Our acts usually seem to take their coloring and tone from the intellect. This is due to the custom of adults of cap ping the emotional experiences of chil dren with a truism or a principle in morals. Emotions Are Discussed. "This tendency to force feeling into the mould of intellectual expression is the outgrowth of a theory that early in life the human being must learn to repress strong emotions.

The Men's Store for Quality and Service Southeast Corner Fifth and Alder WOMAN HEAD LIKELY Mrs. C. C. Bradford May Be Next N. E. A. President. MRS. PRESTON HAS BACKING the youth, we should help them to sense of the value of the feeling of emotion. "The value of an emotion of Joy or grief, of anger or pleasure, to a child or youth lies In its inducing him to think of the feeling of pleasure or sor row until it reveals the self of the happy or sorrowing one to himself. "Of all the problems that confront the parent and the teacher this is the most intricate.- To many it is unsolv able. The intricacy is not in the con sciousnesa of the boy or girl; it is in the differences in temperament of the child and of the adult. 'Unsympathetic or hard natures in men and women are usually the results of atrophy of emotions of Joy aris ing from generous giving or doing. These emotions in childhood or youth were too often coldly formulated for them by another, thus depriving them children of visions of lives made brighter and happier by their deeds. If America develops in her homes. schools and colleges that inner life on which generous, sympathetic, sincere character is founded, she will be pre pared to carry forward the fruits of the triumphs of lives sacrificed In the present war for democracy." . Declaring that the conservation of children, as future citizens of the Na tion, is more necessary than ever be fore, Anna Laura Force, principal of Lincoln School, Denver, Colo., spoke on "The Public School: The Laboratory of Citizenship." "The school has more and more taken over the responsibility of the home," said the speaker. "The child belongs to the state. No longer may the parent say: 'The child is mine: I will do with him as I please.' Under the compulsory attendance law the re sponsibility of the school is increased. It is obliged to concern itself with the health, surroundings and activities of Its pupils. "Our forefathers laid the foundation of freedom and Justice. In the build ing of the great American Nation the school Is the laboratory for citizenship and Its safety and well-being depend upon the intelligence of its citizens. It is their duty to place the welfare of the Nation above selfish greed and personal ambition." An address that realized all expecta tions was delivered by Julia C. La throp, of the Department of Labor, Washington, D. C, entitled "Shall the Country Economize for or Against Its Children?" "The ultimate treasure and resource of any people Is its young life," said the speaker, "the only surety of the continuance of the race. Slowly we have arrived at certain measures of protection for those "under 16 by com pulsory education laws, by child labor laws, by mothers' pension laws and now by a National child labor law. English Example Praised. "It is not too much to say that the first effect of war Is to threaten aU such standards, but it Is especially noteworthy that England has not per mitted any lowering of the age limits for factory work. Its exemptions for farm labor by children have been con siderable in some localities, yet con tinually opposed in others, and in some districts no exemptions have been al lowed. "Today as never before it is certain that the public school teachers of America have an unparalleled power to guard the Nation's children and to mould public opinion so that this coun try will insist that the schools shall gather momentum during this period of war In order that they may better cope with the inevitable disturbance of orderly life which war entails. Washington Superintendent Is Not Active Candidate and Objection Arises on Score It Might be Thought Vnfair. Although politics is a forbidden sub ject In N. K. A. circles, the name of Mrs. Mary C. C. Bradford, State Super intendent of Education for Colorado, is the one most frequently mentioned by those "in the know" as leading in the race for presidential honors at this convention. No avowed campaign for Mrs. Brad ford is being made, but it is hinted that certain delegates are active lu her behalf. It is conceded this is womans' year for the N E. A. and that a woman will be chosen president. Mrs. Bradford right now is the favorite. Her chief rival, if the word rival can be used in this case, is Mrs. Jose phine Corliss Preston, State Superin tendent for the State of Washington. Mrs. Preston has made it known that she will not make any sort of cam paign for the position. High as the honor is, she says it must come to her unsought if she is to have it. Perhaps a slight advantage Mrs. Bradford enjoys is the feeling that the three Pacific Coast states delegates will hesitate to place Mrs. Preston in the highest office In the gift of the N. E. A. while the convention is held in Portland. This might, it is felt, look as If advantage were taken of the visit here of the annual meeting to win a sectional victory. The best advance information Is to the effect that Mrs. Bradford is more than likely to be named as the choice of the nominating committee, which will meet Thursday at 9 A. M. in the tea gardens at the Multnomah Hotel to make its choices" of officers and will report to the business meeting at 11 o'clock Friday morning. WELCOME GIVEN BELGIANS Continued From First Page.)

Officers will be elected and installed tomorrow. commission were Lieutenant - General LeClercq, chief of the Belgian military mission; Lieutenant Count d'Ursel, Sec ond Regiment of Guides, and Major Osterrieth, First Regiment of Guides. The Commissioners were accompanied by quite a large party. Among those In the party were Hugh Gibson, special representative of the Department of State, who formerly was with the American Embassy in Belgium; Captain T. C. Cook, United States Army, de tailed as military aide to General Le Clercq; James C. Whlteley, of the Bel gian legation at Washington: D. W. Fisher, of the Department of State; Thornton Smith, Associated Press cor respondent; M. D. Thonnart, aide to Lieutenant-General LeClercq: E. Dan golsseo, aide to Major Osterrieth; James O'Connell, special . agent from the Department of State; William Houghton, of the United States Secret Service, and last, but a very important member of the party, nevertheless. "Nellie," Major Osterrieth s war dog. So very much at home did the mem bers of the Belgian Commission come to feel In the course of the 11 busy hours they passed as guests of the city of Portland that before their departure they were using American slang in ex changes of repartee. "The Kaiser was after the scepter of the world," said the, ordinarily dignified Baron Moncheur, smilingly, at a dinner In honor of the commissioners given at the Benson Hotel shortly before train time last night. "The Kaiser was after the scepter of the world but Uncle Sam will hand him a lemon!" Train Hurries Dinner. The Baron proved his command of slang in reply to a previous remark by Mayor Baker that the Belgians and their Portland hosts had got aflong so famously during the day that the Bel gians had picked up slang. Owing to the inexorability of train schedules, the dinner was Just as in formal as the other events on the day's programme, for the Belgians had to leave for the depot before the last course. Baron Moncheur was the only member of the Commission who could be beard in the short time available. As the Baron arose to respond to addresses of warm welcome by Gov ernor Withycombe. Mayor Baker and Henry L. Corbett, president of the Chamber of Commerce, under the aus pices of which the dinner was held, the nearly S00 diners present cheered hlra enthusiastically and stood In his honor. 'Your kind and very eloquent words fill me with confidence and hope," said the Baron, pronouncing the words In clear English. "They would warm the hearts of every Belgian, could they hear them. tell the Amerloan people of the grati tude of our Klne and of the whole Bel gian Nation. But we are especially glad to express these thanks to you here in your beautiful and hospitable city. "I have learned with great pleasure and satisfaction that many of your young fellows here nave already joined the colors to go to Kuropg ana ngnt for in." American Speed Surprise. After speaking briefly of th situa tion of the Belgian people and the cruel hand of Prusslanism, Baron Moncheur continued: "I want to tell you how very deeply we are touched with the delightful reception we have been accorded in this city a city that really commands admiration for its location and beauty." The Baron aroused a hearty laugh when he concluded: "You are very speedy here. You go so fast in this age of progress that I am almost tempted to say it Is in the West that the sun rises." His allusion was to the terrific speed with which the Commissioners were whisked along the Columbia River Highway on their return from a trip to Horsetail Falls. The party were late, so to get them to Portland on time to keep a speaking engagement at the Auditorium, the chauffeurs of their machines drove them back over the highway, around turns and above precipices at the actual speed of 50 miles per hour. "Whew!" breathed Baron Moncheur. "It was very, very speedy." Lumber Mill Inspected. The trip up the Highway was begun about 10 o'clock yesterday morning, following a visit by the members of the commission to the Eastern & West ern Lumber Company's mill, where they inspected the plant with the greatest Interest and appreciation. After viewing Horsetail Falls the commissioners and their escorts of the Portland reception committee stopped at Multnomah Falls. Members of the commission expressed unalloyed delight at the spectacle. It was at their re quest that the cars were stopped so they might climb to the high bridge Just below the upper fall. Somebody remarked that they would be late to dinner. "Oh, why must we eat when there is such a thing as this to see," pro tested Baron Moncheur. The other commissioners were equally enthusi astic. From Multnomah Falls they went to Forest Hall, where they had dinner. It was considerably later than per programme when the start back to the city was made. The commissioners were to appear before the National Education Association in the Auditori um at 3 o'clock, and to attend a recep tion in the South Park Blocks at 3:30. Highway Gets Greatest Praise. But it developed that they wouldn't reach even the Auditorium before din ner time if they didn't break a few speed rules, so, at a suggestion from Mayor George L. Baker, as chairman SCHOOL USES URGED Idle Buildings Declared Oppo site of Conservation. MANY SUGGESTIONS MADE of the reception committee, tne arivers ''let their machines out." It was prob ably the fastest time that any distin guished party ever has made around the curves of the Columbia River High way, but the Commissioners seemed to enjoy even that, too. "I have seen all the beautiful drives of Europe all of them but never have I seen anything that for beauty, for grandeur, for scenery, could equal your Columbia River Highway," enthusiasti cally commented Baron Moncheur on the highway trip. "It Is magnificent, wonderful. The engineering is particularly impres sive." ' Even at B0 miles an hour, the com missioners were about an hour late in reaching the Auditorium, which was packed with an . immense throng. In the meantime Mayor Baker announced to the people gathered on the plaza blocks that owing to the unavoidable delay in their return, the commissioners would be unable to appear at the plaza, and he asked all there to go to the Auditorium. Commission Met at Train. From the Auditorium meeting, where Baron Moncheur and General LeClercq were the speakers, the commissioners went to the Benson Hotel for a brief rest before dinner. Mayor Baker was chairman of the reception committee which so success fully arranged for the reception of the Belgian commission. Members of this committee who met the commissioners at the train were: Governor Withycombe. Mayor Baker, City Commissioners Mann, Bigelow and Kellaher, County Commissioners Holbrook, Muck and Holman, John B. Yeon. Henry L. Corbett, president of the Chamber of Commerce, and W. D. B. Dodson, executive secretary; W. F. Woodward. Guy W. Talbot. O. M. Clarke, Drake C. O'Reilly, Samuel Hill C. Henri Labbe, Belgian vice-consu Thomas C. Burke, Dr. O. J. Goffin Joseph Van Hoomissen, S.

Many of the committee also made the trip up the Columbia River Highway, Governor Withycombe was unable to go on the trip, but Adjutant-General White accompanied the commissioners President Crawford, of University of Portland, Proposes Inclusion of Junior College Course and Municipal Universities. "Still stands the schoolhouse on the hill, an idle beggar sunning," might well have been the shibboleth of a con ference held yesterday morning at the First Presbyterian Church by the de partment for the promotion of the wider use of schoolhousea of the Na tional Education Association. While various other departmental meetings of the morning attracted large attendances, this one, admittedly vital to the conservation of learning's resources, had but a scattering quorum. Yet those who did attend made up in vigor of presentation and clarity of vision for the absentees. The public school plants, in vacation time and evenings, were discussed from many angles. The education of the adult, the schoolhouse as a labora tory for citizenship, the schoolhouse and recreation, the schoolhouse as a place for political meetings, as a musi cal center and activities in the school house illustrating democracy were angles of discussion. Presiding at the meeting was Charles C. Kelso, vice-president and director of social center of high schools, Los Angeles, who dwelt upon the import ance of civic education through the schoolhouse as a civic center. Detailing various projects for the employment of the schoolhouse as tested in Utah, D. W. Parratt spoke briefly, answering several questions. 'In the old days when they built the city of Athens," said Edgar Crawford, president of the University of Port land, "they dedicated-a temple, a great educational institute, to an old maid school teacher1 a Danish girl, they called her Athena." Such was President Crawford's In troduction to a plea for the broaden ing of the local school system to in clude a junior college course, a project that is now blocked by state statutes, which provide that no district school funds shall be paid for teaching beyond the four-year high tchool course. President Crawford pointed out that the use of school buildings and equip ment, idle now for a considerable por tion of the time, was not prohibited and declared that the meeting would do well to consider the matter of es-' tablishing municipal universities. Mr. Peterson has been engaged by the California State Normal School at San Francisco to co-operate with the faculty In the extension of rural school work. T. J. Gary, superintendent of the Brooklyn School, Portland, Or., spoke upon the advantages to be gained by wider use of the schools and school equipment. The department will hold a luncheon at the Hotel Multnomah, Thursday, when officers for the succeeding terra will be elected. "We have crossed the wide ocean to his personal representative.
