Almost Every Nationality Eligible to
Citizenship Will Be Represent
ed in 150 on Stage at
A u (1 i tori u m Tonight.
Naturalization of a large class of
foreign -born citizens in a public cere
mony at the Auditorium tonight will
be the big- ppectaeular event of the
N. K. A session today.
The loral immigration authorities ar
ranged, lor this aolfcinn service tonight
a a practical demonstration in citizen-
.fihip to the, assembled teachers and
their friends. Admission will bo free
to the public.
John P. Kavanauch. presiding iudsre
of the Circuit Court, will officiate. The
regular court officers wilt attend

bailiff; and, on behalf of the United
StHtes Department of Labor, John Speed
tSmith, chief naturalization examiner
for the Seattle district, and Henry B.
Hazard, naturalization examiner sta
tioned at Portland.
Petitioners to Be fluent loned.
Petitioners for naturalization and
their,, witnesses will be sworn In the
usual manner by the clerk, questioned
by Examiner Hazard and passed upon
by Judge Kavanaugh, who will admit
to citizenship before the whole con
vention those applicants for that priv
ilege who are found to be qualified.
And it will be seen by that body of
schoolmen and women that "qualified"
has never meant bo much as it does
today. It is not sufficient that a man
come before the court with a clean
record and the requisite proof with
regard to residence and character he
must show also that he is fit to exer
cise the rights and to enjoy the priv
ileges of citizenship. The petitioners
who will be examined are students of
the Portland public night schools, in
which they have taken a special course
in citizenship, under the supervision of
L. R. Alderman, superintendent of
schools, and John C. Veatch, supervisor
of night schools.
There will be but a handful of them
samples, to show how the thing is
done but they will be interesting as
representatives of the hundreds who
steadily pour, month after month,
through these grates of the schools
and the courts.
Many 'ationaUtle on Stage.
Some of these others probably 150
will be there on the stage; petitioners
representing almost every nationality
which Is eligible for citizenship in this
country. They will be men whose
qualifications have previously been as
certained at the regular hearings be
fore the Circuit Court and whose ad
mission to citizenship has been delayed
until now so that they might take the
final oath of allegiance the more sig
nificantly, with greater impressiveness.
The entire programme at tonight's
reneral session will have to do with
the preparation of the youth and the
immigrant for better citizenship.

THE facts given below are based on an
impartial investigation among' the den
tal profession, neither the dentists nor those
interviewing them knowing of Colgate &
Co.'s interest therein.
Some 12,000 dentists (more than 25 of
the entire profession in America) were per
sonally questioned concerning their prefer
ence among dentifrices. The investigation
covered cities, towns, and villages in every
State in the Union. It shows that:
1 Colgate's is the first choice of more
dentists than any other dentifrice.
2 Colgate's is prescribed exclusively
by more dentists than any other.

knowledge now beinp introduced into

Oliver M. Johnston, of Stanford Uni
versity, secretary of the conference,
read a paper on university training of
the high school teacher of modern lan
guages with particular reference to
French. He said:
"The university training of the high
school teacher of modern foreign lan
guages is training on the pedagogical
side. Poor teaching Is often due to the
fact that the teacher does not know
how to present his subject in such a
way as to Interest his pupils and stim
ulate them to think."
"Ideals of the Profession" was the
subject discussed by William A. Cooper,
of Stanford University, president of the
department. For ideals of future im
provement in the educational system,
he said, the world must look to the
teaching profession, not to the lay
boards of education, who handle
finances and appoint teachers. Real
command of modern languages, he said,
is essential for a country with an am
bition to be a leader in the Intercourse
of nations. Modern language courses,
he believes. need to be expanded

he was one of the cleverest pickpockets ;
on the Pacific Coast. Now he is mar- I
rid and has a good position in a town
in Washington. He was accompanied
to the Police Station by his wife and
after sime time he convinced the de
tectives that he was "going straight."
"I bucked the law once too often, sev
eral years ago." he told the detectives,
"and I served a sentence In a Western
penitentiary. During my confinement
I decided it was a losing game to keep
on breaking the law. When my term
expired I searched for some time for a
job and when I found it I stayed with
it. I was married some time ago and
think I am now the happiest man in
the world. If some of these voung fel

would only' take the advice of an old

The young man returned to his home
