State Superintendent Reads 2300
Books and Tales to Iiay Founda

in Oregon library.
SALEM. Or.. Oct. 1. (Special.) J. A.
Churchill, Superintendent of the De
partment of Public Instruction, today
issued the prospectus for the first
course in moral instruction ever to be
introduced in the public schools in
.this state or any other.
The course was not finally arranged
until after much study and delibera
tion, which included conferences with
educators from many parts of this
state and other states, and also the
reading: of more than 2500 books and
stories to give the proper foundation
for the proposed course.
In fact, the moral instruction will be
given indirectly through the story
method. The course is provided so that
certain stories, particularly applicable
to certain virtues, are told or read to
the children, the stories increasing; in
their literary value with the advancing;
The course as mapped out takes the
child through the eighth grade from
the first grade and includes 330 stories
for the first six grades and a large
number of books for the seventh and
The course is founded on ten virtues,
selected by a vote of the teachers of
the state. The ten virtues selected by
the teachers are cleanliness, punctuality,
truthfulness, respect and reverence,
courtesy and politeness, honesty, kind
ness, patriotism, industry and obedi
ence. To these was added the virtue
of courage and these 11 virtues will be
taught by the indirect or story method,
the pupil not being told with the tell
ing or reading of the story that the
object is to impart a faith in the partic
ular virtue being considered.
"This department believes that re
sults can be obtained In moral instruc
tion through the use of stories which
illustrate the virtues," said Superin
tendent Churchill in commenting upon
the new course. "In the pamphlet out
lining the new course, arranged accord
ing to grades, are listed a number of
stories illustrating particular virtues,
which, as a result of a questionnaire
sent to the teachers of the state, it is
considered desirable to try to inculcate
In the lives of the children.
"The method which it is designed
should be followed in carrying out this
work is the indirect method. The
teacher should read or tell the story
to the children without any direct at
tempt to enforce the moral and let the
child do his own moralizing. He is
perfectly capable of it and that which
he does for himself is far more effec
tive than that which the teacher does
for him. Of course, it is vital that he
grasp the point of the story.
"The listing of stories under partic
ular virtues has been carried through
the sixth grade. Short stories with a
clear application to single virtues are
not available for children beyond that
age. However, there is abundant ma
terial for the development of particular
character ideals in longer stories and
complete books. For the seventh and
eighth grades a list of those especial
ly valuable has been given."

Remorseless in its warfare on our allies and our own shipping, this German U-boat has met a fitting fate. It
lies a total wreck on the coast of Wissant, close to Calais, France. As the days pass the waves are steadily
pounding the hulk to pieces.
When this submarine went ashore an Incident strikingly similar to one that happened further up the coast in
The Netherlands hundreds of years ago occurred. Then, during the Dutch wars for freedom from Spanish tyranny,
a body of cavalry at low tide captured a stranded ship. In this case, after the submarine had been driven ashore,
the French, aided by Belgian cavalry, captured the boat and made the crew prisoners. So the score for the sea
going cavalry is now two ships.

President to visit Seattle, Portland and
San Francisco, and to settle the wage
disputes in the shipyards of these lo

Wednesday, going direct to Seattle.
The board expects to open hearings
at Seattle next Monday, and to con
tinue them until all interested parties,
either builders or representatives of
labor, have had full opportunity to
present their views.
On concluding the Seattle hearings,
the board will proceed to Portland, but
as the length of stay in Seattle will
not be determined in advance, no spe
cific time has been set to begin hear
ings of Columbia River shipbuilders
and their men. Following the Portland
hearings the board will go to San Fran

ping Board and the labor adjustment
board to fix a scale of wages for pri

Mare Island Navy-yards.
The board, however, has no authority
to fix wages in Government yards.
The labor adjustment board leaving
here Wednesday is separate and dis
tinct from the labor commission head

TEUTONIC PLOT CLEARER
FRE.CU LEARN SOURCE OF PROP
Parisian Paper Asserts Former Ger
man Foreign Secretary Approved
PARIS. Oct. 1. The arrest of Bolo
Pasha and the disclosure of tangible
evidence as to the source of enormous
sums expended In France to corrupt
the press and organize a propaganda
of depression and discouragement
among both civilians and soldiers has
created a great sensation, but at the
same time a feeling of relief that the
scandal which has been clouding
France for many months is on the
point of being cleared up.
It was affirmed that Bolo Pasha had
cashed three checks for 735,000 marks,
each drawn by a German bank on
Swiss and Italian banks in 1915. The
voyage he made to New York in Feb
ruary. 1916, also was the object of an
inquiry, but no proofs were obtainable
of the sources of the funds which he
disposed of at the time, nearly 5,500,000
francs, which were turned over to the
Journal of Paris as a loan, without
interest, and in consideration of par
ticipation in the profits of the Journal.
The British Legation at Berne fur
nished evidence that established action
between Bolo Pasha and German agents
through the former Khedive of Egypt,
who was living in Switzerland.
One Paris newspaper asserts that
it has evidence that Dr. Alfred Zim
mermann, former German Foreign Sec
retary, passed upon the proposition to
use Bolo Pasha in propaganda in
France, and agreed that the experi
ment was worth 25,000,000 francs.
A warrant has been issued for the
arrest of Gaston Routier, a French sub
ject, who founded the pacifist news
paper La Paix at Madrid with funds
supposed to have been furnished by

GOLDENDALE, Wash., Oct. 1.
(Special.) Failure to notice an ap

branch of the Spokane, Portland &
Seattle Railway almost cost Otis Bran

Branton was coming into Goldendale
on the Maryhill road riding a motor
cycle and crashed into the train at a
grade crossing at the Goldendale city
limits. His machine struck the rear
step of the baggage car and he was
thrown into a ditch about 20 feet
from the wagon road. He was un

first thought his injuries would prove
fatal, but when examined by physi

with a broken leg, a badly lacerated
face and the loss of several teeth.

THE GREAT DIVIDE.
The woman in the prime of life
need not dread to meet the loss of her
youth when growing- elderly. Whilo
some charms diminish, others should
replace them charms of experience,
cultivation, wisdom. The great physical
changes met between the fortieth and
fiftieth year are indeed serious, and
are not always well borne. In the
strain of modern life, few women are
in condition to meet these changes
without some apprehension of deranged
health. But with the excellent help of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable . Com

medicine, a woman may confidently ex
