Hundred of rrniop enumerators
are wanted and the supervisors of
Oregon are wondering If they will
secure enough to mikt the canvass.
Oregon will reauire about 9S0 enu
merators, and the district which has
headquarters at Vancouver, Wash.
will need 37.
Applications must be made by Octo-
ber IS. and If the supervisors are to
recruit their crews to the maximum
there will have to be a stampede on
the part of the public for the jobs.
Ten years azo there were not enough
Jobs for those who applied: today the
lobs are going begging.
It was to solve this problem that
the supervisors held a conference In
Portland yesterday and decided to lay
their troubles before the reading pub
lic. Attending this conference were

sional district, with headquarters at

congressional district, headquarters
at Wasco, and W. D. Bennett of the
third congressional district, head

Keturned soldiers and their de
pendents w:il be siren preference In
appointments as enumerators. Owing
to the apparent indifference of the
public In seeking these Jobs the gov
ernment suggests to the supervisors
that an appeal be made the men
and women who were active In the
war drives, schoolteachers and the
like. The time is short for organis
ins the staffs for the field, as applica
tions must be in by October 1 next
Wednesday. Those who wish to serve
should apply to the supervisor of
their congressional district, as enu
merators will be used In their home
district and not in other Tlistricts
There are two systems of compen
sation. One pays the enumerator by
name and the other- on a per diem
basis. On the name basis enuniera
tors receive from 2 to 4 cents a name
and an active enumerator can make
between $5.Si) and 7 a day. declare
the supervisors. The per diem runs
from (4 to ) a day. The supervisors
are not having much difficulty in the
city districts, but in th outside sec
tions there Is a strong demand for
help. In the country the enumerators
are paid on the basis of the number
of farms visited.
Owing to the shortage In the labor
market and the prevailing high
wages, the compensation for the lS.'O
census Is not as attractive as It was
a decade ago.
Those who apply for enumerator
jobs will be examined about the last
of October or the first of November.
These examinations will b held in
every county seat In the state. The
census starts January Z and Is sup
posed to be over In a month, two
weeks being allowed to check up the
cities and four weeks is the time se
for the count In the outside districts.

WHO IS :
WASHINGTON, Oct. 10. All of the
time set aside by the senate today
for consideration of the peace treaty
was taken up by Senator Norris, re
publican, Nebraska, with a three
hour attack on the Shantung settle
ment, and a half an hour's reading
of the printed text.
When the Nebraska senator halted
for the moment with his speech only
two-thirds through. Republican Lead
er Lodge gave him a breathing spell
by suggesting that the senate shift
to the reading. Senator Norris will
conclude tomorrow. Senator Lodge
also may speak, and the senate will
meet an hour earlier than usual in
the hope of speeding up the treaty
At the suggestion of Senator Lodge,
the senate also adopted an agreement
to take up the Shantung amendments
Wednesday, but this does not mean
that they will be considered under
the five-minute debating rule then
or that a vote is any nearer than it
was .yesterday. Senators explained
that this procedure would enable the
body to revert to the section embrac-
ng the Shantung provision, as the
reading by Wednesday may be way
ahead of it. But if senators want to
keep on speaking that day and there
after, they will have that right.
Norris Denounces Award.
Senator Norris, speaking extempor
aneously, which Is quite different
from the plan followed by most of his
colleagues, was particularly severe in
denouncing the award of Shantung
to Japan. There was no hope, he de
clared, of seeing that province back
under the Chinese flag, once it was
taken over by Japan under the peace
conference settlement, which he char
acterised as the "outrage of the age."
He charged that the American people
had been coerced in some cases to
ubscribe to loans to support this gov-
rnment, which was lending money to
Great Britain at H per cent, while
Great Britain was lending It to Per-
la at 7 per cent.
There was only a brief reference to
the league of nations during the
morning hour." the time for filling
the record with documents indorsing
and condemning it.
After Senator King, democrat, Utah,
had attacked federal authorities for
failure to deport "members of pes
tiferous and poisonous gangs seeking
to destroy this government by force
and violence," Senator McCumber, re
publican. North Dakota, declared in
the senate today that "if these people
had been deported the foreign rela
tions committee would have been de
prived of some of its star witnesses
against the league of nations."
The discussion followed adoption of a
resolution by Senator King directing
the secretary of war to forward a re
port concerning the case of Robert
Minor, a newspaper man arrested in
France on a charge of spreading so
Cane Likened to Trotsky's.
Senator Poindexter, republican, of
Washington, said Minor had returned
to this country to "continue his revo
lutionary activities, possibly to re
ward the Lniled States for its liber
ality," and declared the case was
similar to that of Leon Trotzky, "in
whose behalf the United States inter
ceded after his arrest in Canada
his way to Europe."
The senate committee continued

PRUNE CROP IS LARGE
Douglas County Prune Growers
Will Receive $1,200,000.
ROSEBURG. Or., Oct. 10. (Spe
cial.) That the total prune produc
tion of Douglas county for 1919 will
be about 8.000,001) pounds is believed
by packers here who are handling
most of the crop. At the prices pre
vailing this year, approximately 1,-
200.000 will be distributed among tne
prune growers of the county.
An unusually large crop had been
anticipated in the vicinity of Rose-
burg, but hot, dry conditions were
conducive to the fruit dropping.
which lessened the yield materially.
In the Riddle and Canyonville dis
tricts the yield was much higher, so
that probably 65 to 70 per cent nor
mal crop was realized. Young or
chards beginning to bear consider
ably increased the total yield, and
the three big packing plants are
flooded with prunes.
