FULL CONFESSION IS MADE
Supply of Blank Checks Found
in Kubblish Is Incentive, and
t Easy Passing of First One
Leads to More Forgery.
Tn the arrest yesterday and subse
quent confession of J. Marshall, a se
ries of yetty forgeries which has mys
tified Portland officials for nearly
three years was unearthed. Admitting
that he had operated under nearly a
dozen aliases and had forged small
checks any time he needed a little
money, Marshall yesterday made a
complete confession to Deputy Sheriff
Phillips and a Burns Agency operative,
who made the arrest. He is held at
the County Jail in default or $1500
According to Marshall's own story,
which has been substantiated In part,
he has been in and around Fortland
all the time he was forging the checks,
but he used an assumed name in near
ly every instance and cashed a major
ity of his checks in widely separated
parts of the city so successfully that
he eluded apprehension and arreat un
til yesterday. He admits forging more
than a score of checks, say the offi
cers, and has given them a list of the
firms which he defrauded. It is be
lieved that he has forged even more
checks than he admits.
In his County Jail cell, Marshall &aid
that he first" started his forged-check
career when he found a large number,
of blank checks on various Portland
banks in a pile of refuse. Being hard
up at the time, he said, he wrote out
a small check and succeeded in cash
ing it. Because of the success of his
first attempt, he kept the remainder
of the checks, which he used any time
he was in need of money.
"I would use a different name near
ly every time," he said. "It made no
difference whether I used the name
of a person who had money in the
bank or not, because I always got
them cashed, by writing them for small
Marshall said1 he was a boilermaker
by trade, but did not work much of the
time because he could not get top
wages. His checks generally ranged
from $2 to $10. while the largest check,
he said, was for $35. In many instances
he appeared in the guise of a working
man who wanted to get a paycheck
According to the omciais. ALarsnaii
cashed his last check about a week
ago. At that time a fairly good de
scription was given, which finally led
to his arrest. He will be held to await
action by the grand jury. It was said
that some of the checks which Mar
shall passed were really clever forger
ies of signatures, and a. complete in
vestigation is to be made of his record.

Useful education that teaches the
boy to produce something, rather than

today, believes Van Evrie Kilpatrick, of
New York City, president of the School
Garden Association of America, which
held an afternoon session yesterday at
the First Congregational Church.
"The question in the cities is being

'How can I get enough to live? " said
Mr. Kilpatrick. "In my school work
I look into the faces of boys every

Samuel C. Lancaster spoke of out
door education, its special need today
and the urgent necessity for gardens
everywhere, if America is to be fed
and at the same time provide a surplus
for its allies. He spoke also of the
beginnings of the Columbia River
Highway and of some of the obstacles
overcome in that work.
X. C. Maris, also an Oregon man,
spoke on gardening and vocational
education. His specialty, he said, is
Industrial club work, but he treated
his topic from the broader viewpoint,
that included not only gardening but
every industrial activity for the child.
He said the United States is a country
