School directors deadlocked over the
petition presented at the regular meet
ing ot the board yesterday afternoon
by the executive committee of the cen
tral teachers' salary committee, re
questing that the remaining $48 of the
bonus granted by the board this term
be paid at the close of the school year
instead of during the four months of
the autumn term of school. The peti
tion was placed on file.
"This is the third time teachers have
made this same request and twice be-
fore 'the board carefully considered the
matter and refused them," said O. JI.-l
Plummer, as he asked that the petition
"I second the motion." declared. Dr.
K. A. Sommer. "It is poor taste for the
teachers repeatedly to ask for a icon
cession previously considered ana re
fused. I am convinced the remainder
of the bonus should be held over until
next fall so that the new teachers will
share equally in its distribution."
Teachers Need Money, Plea.
Directors Orton and Thomas upheld
the teachers' petition. "The public is
convinced our teachers deserve more
money or last Saturday's election would
not have carried with such a large
vote." said Mr. Orton. "Teachers need
the money now. In the fall the money
derived from the special election will
be waiting them."
Efforts were made by Director Thom
as to have the matter referred to the
educational committee of which Mr.
Orton is chairman. An affirmative vote
from the chairman. J. Francis Drake,
carried the motion to place the petition
on" file. School authorities say that it
was the first time in the history of the
present school board that in time of
controversy, Directors Drake, Sommer
and Plummer voted together.
New Teachers Elected.
The election of 100 teachers, includ
Ing 11 who have returned from leave
of absence, for the ; school term of
1M9-20 was approved upon recommend
ation of Superintendent Grout.

Note to Allied Council Protests
Bartering in Territory Popu
lated by Germans.
BERLIN via London. May 14. Fried
rich Ebert, the German president, in a
statement made in the newspaper Vor-
waerts, has reiterated hia opposition to
the peace terms submitted by the en
tente, declaring them unreconcilable
with conscience and, reason and insist
ing that they must be drastically and
Above all, practical negotiations were
necessary, he declared, and these would
quickly result in the attainment of a
worthy peace, if a return were made
to the 14 points.
"As long as one remnant of hope re
mains that reason will triumph," con
tinued President Ebert, "we will not
speak our last word, but should it
prove that this mailed fist peace is to
be imposed upon us, we shall have to
make our decisions.
Territorial Changes Protested.
"Today I still hone'that the attempt
will not be made to extort from the
German nation an assent which would
be nothing but a lie born of desperation,
We must keep faith with our country
men who are threatened with eepara
tion by foreign violence, and be ready
to carry out the hardest resolve.
A note o'f considerable length pre
sented to the peace council by the
German plenipotentiaries deals with all
the proposed territorial changes. The
note does not deny that the principle
of self-determination can be asserted
for several of the changes, such as
concerns Poland and Schleswig, but
does not concede that the territories
populated by Germans "can be bartered
like pawns as security for the finan
cial or economic demands of Germany's
Germany l liable to Comply.
In this connection, the note pro
tests strongly regarding the Saar val
ley and declares It is vain to object
that the proposed occupation will be
temporary because, it la declared, if
Germany is not in a position to re
purchase the mines with gold at the
end of 15 years, the region is destined
finally to go to France, even if the
population "pronounces unanimously in
favor" of Germany."
Count Von Brockdorf f-Rantzau. the
head of the German peace delegation
in communicating to the other me
bers of the delegation the text of the
three notes he sent to Premier Clemen
ceau, pointed out that the peace treaty
in. its present form could not be ac
cepted and could not be signed because
it was impossible to fulfill its -terms,
Treaty Improvement Aim.
Dispatches from Versailles reporting
the count's action add that he told the
German delegation that it would sign
nothing it was not intended to fulfill.
The delegation, he continued, would
endeavor to improve the treaty and
make its signing possible.
LONDON", May 13. Fhilipp Scheide
mann. the German premier, has sent
through the Berlin correspondent of
the Daily Herald, the labor newspaper,
an appeal to the British people to real
ize the "appalling position Germany is
placed in by the peace conditions."
Herr Scheidemann, in his appeal
"We cannot believe that fellow hu
man beings, however much under the
influence of a wicked war, can really
intend to reduce a kindred civilized
people to slavery, for that is what these
"We 'Germans call upon you English

PROPAGANDA INCITES PEOPLE
OF SIBERIA AGAINST YANKS
American Soldiers All Bolshevists , Is Statement in Japanese Advertiser,
Says Lieutenant Edward Hall, Home From Vladivostok Front.
Three Times a Week
For Three Weeks
After the long winter months, too
much rich food and too little exercise,
practically everyone feels the necessity
for a good Spring tonic and Blood Puri
fier. The very best spring medicine you
can take is the king of tonic laxatives
Three times a week for three weeks,
brew a cup of thi: purely vegetable
laxative tea and drink it just before
retiring. Gently, yet effectively, it will
drive out all impurities and not only
make xou feel better, but look better,
right away, giving you a sweet breath,
'clear skin and a healthy appetite.
a MERICANT soldiers are all bolshe
Li vists, allied with everything in-
imical to the best interests of
Russia, according to newspaper propa
ganda which is persistently carried to
the people of Siberia. Such is the re
port brought to Portland by Lieutenant
Edward Hall, first .returning soldier of
the American expeditionary forces in
Lieutenant Hall, dental surgeon with
the 27th infantry, and for nine months
with his command at Khagarovsk, Si
beria, 600 miles from Vladivostok, is
one of 125 officers permitted to-come
home through voluntary replacement.
"Newspapers of that region,, and par
ticularly the Japanese Advertiser,
which I believe is published in Japan,
with evidently an English edition for
the American soldiers, have been open
ly attacking the Yanks for months,"
assorts Lieutenant Hall., "Some force
is at work trying to undermine the
United States over there, and we at
tributed this newspaper propaganda to
German money and German sympa
thizers. We were openly called bol
shevists, and charged with being in
sympathy with them, and as Jews seem
to be unpopular in that country, the
charge is frequently made that the
American soldiers are all Jews."
Americans and Japanese Not Cordial.
While Lieutenant Hall, for obvious
reasons, is loath to speak of the under
current of opinion among the members
of the American expeditionary forces,
he admits that there is no real cor
diality between American and Japanese
soldiers, and that friendly relationship
is largely maintained by the strictest
discipline. Clashes between individuals
of the two forces are not Infrequent,
while attacks on Americans by a news
paper bearing such a name as the Jap
anese Advertiser naturally tends to
cause the Tank to wonder what his
Nipponese ally is up to.
That the relieved Cossack general.
Kalmakoff, is a powerful factor in the
anti-American agitation is the belief
of Lieutenant Hall. When Kalmakoff s
Cossacks mutinied, no pay and poor
food being responsible, and many of
them went over to the Americans, turn
ing over their arms ana norses to the
Yanks, they were placed in the old
Russian prison camp at Krashnia
Retchka, about 15 miles from Khaba
rovsk. Kalmakoff demanded that the
mutineers he turned over to him, a de
mand that was refused. The Cossacks,
distrustful of the Japanese, did not
yield themselves to that unit, while the
body that yielded to the Chinese were
given up to Ttalmakoff and quickly
found burial spots beneath the ice of
the Armo river.

"The Cossacks couldn't understand the
