The organization of the retail sec

Captains Are Chosen.
Chairman Berg plunged at once Into
the task of organization, and in con
ference with his chief aide, Mr.
Plageman. and the executive commit
tee outlined an inclusive regiment of
campaigners, appointing individual
c&ptaina for each of the 150 lines of
relpil business. The captains select

their own committees for the solici

business colleagues.
"Under this plan," said Chairman
Berg last night, "the retail districts
of the city will be completely can
vassed, trade by trade, the solicitors

tical lines of business with those
whom they approach It is a system
that bore abundant results in the pa
triotic drives of the war period, and
will not fail us now.
"One important fact must be borne
in mind. Men who have contributed
as members of organizations cannot
expect such contributions to count
as individual or to render them im
mune from further solicitation. The
memorial to Theodore Roosevelt is
iitting tribute to the services of a
sterling statesman and soldier but
it is more than that. At a time when
Americanism, such as he championed
is at the test, citizens should deem
it a high privilege to stamp with no
half-hearted approval this project to
perpetuate his memory. The memorial
to Roosevelt will stand as a symbol
of Americanism for the generations to

The Roosevelt Memorial campaign
took on a new impetus yesterday
when Portland leaders enlisted In the
small army that is determined that
Portland shall go over the top and
that thousands of members be secured
for the Roosevelt Memorial associa
tion, a national society to perpetuate
Roosevelt's ideals of Americanism.
As the result of a meeting of the
state executive committee plans were
laid for a vigorous and Intensive

every man, woman and child the op

in publicity and by public speakers.
But inasmuch as the object is noi
merely to raise Multnomah countjrs
quota of 121,000 and the state's quota
of $38,090, but also to secure as many
members of the Roosevelt Memorial
association as possible, men, women
and children who will realize that the
need of the hour Is a new devotion
to American ideals of citizenship, the
Portland leaders realized that a com
plete organization was needed to get
the message across, an organization
almost as perfect as those for the
liberty loan drives. This need the
men and women who are most active
in Portland's civic life have deter
mined to supply, and at the meeting
yesterday steps were inaugurated to
secure and perfect the necessary or
ganization. A. L. Mill Lands Roosevelt.
A. L. Mills, president of the First
National bank, is one of the Portland
leaders who was quick to perceivn
the importance of the Roosevelt
memorial campaign.
"Theodore Roosevelt stood for the
highest type of American citizenship,'
said Mr. Mills. "With him America
was first, last and all the time. His
whole life showed love of country,
and if this were imbued in the rising
generation there would need be no
fear in the future of this country
standing for what it stood for in the
days of the fathers of the country:
Life, liberty and the pursuit of hap

given to the school- child of today
than to have placed before him the
life story - of -Theodore Roosevelt be

more than offset, all the malign in
fluence of the red and radical bolshe
vlst element that today is striving to
upset existing conditions and in the
end destroy our government of the
people, by the people and for the
Plea Made to Citizens.
"Every loyal American who loves
his country and desires the Stars and
Stripes to continue to float over
free people should join in the great
memorial proposed for Theodore
Roosevelt, whose name will go down
in history along with Washington's
and Lincoln's, as the embodiment of
true Americanism."
Max H. Hcmser not only joined the
association but expressed his willing
ness to assist in the memorial cam
paign. "I am in hearty sympathy with the
movement to erect a memorial to the
great American, but I believe there
could be nothing better than to form
a national association to promote the
Americanization movement," said
Mr. Houser. "There should be at least

I am in hearty sympathy with the ob

we erect a permanent memorial to the
memory of a great American, whose

more important that we secure thou

Majority of Senate Supports
Expressions on Treaty.
Reservation. Differs Little From
That Which President Said Ho
Would Consider Rejection.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 22. Reopening
its consideration of the peace treaty,
the senate foreign relations commit
tee today adopted ten revised reser
vations, including a provision that the
senate qualifications must be ac
cepted by threo of the other great
powers before the treaty ratification
becomes effective.
Among them was a new proposal
which administration senators de
Glared would break down the econom
ic boycott features of the league of
nations covenant, and a reservation
on article 10 differing only in the
transposition of one phase from that
which President Wilson has an
nounced he would treat as a rejection
in the treaty. ,
Majority Behind Proposals.
The ten reservations were part of
list presented by Chairman Lodge and
declared by the republican leaders to
represent a compromise behind which
a majority of the senate is pledged
to stajid. The administration mem
bers "Tit the committee, headed by
Democratic Leader Hitchcock, tried
in vain to obtain modification of the
majority proposals and then voted
solidly against all of them.
Showing for the first time, how.
ever, a willingness to include reser
vations of an interpretative charac
ter in the ratification resolution. Sen
ator Hitchcock and his colleagues of
fered substitutes for several of the
reservations presented, but not a sin
gle substitution or change was made
at their suggestion.
Article 10 Included.
The ten subjects covered by the
reservations were:
Withdrawal from league member
ship; article 10; the right of congress
to authorize mandates; national su
premacy over domestic questions; the
Monroe doctrine; Shantung: limita
tions on the reparations commission;
the power of congress to determine
contributions to league expenses; the
right to increase armament in certain

was contained In a preamble to the
reservation group. Senator McCumber
joined the six democrats In opposition.
It was said that part of the pro
gramme, together with some addition
al reservations to be taken up later,
had failed to secure the support-of all
of the "mild" republicans. The lead
ers, however, asserted they had the
votes pledged to carry all of ' their
proposals through the senate.
. This feature of the majority plan
aroused particular opposition among
the democrats, who have stood de
terminedly against any qualification
that would require reopening of ne
gotiations. The administration forces
also object strenuously to the article
10 reservation and to the one permit
ting trade between the nationals of
the United States and the nationals of
a covenant-breaking state.
Johnson -Amendment Doomed-
Action on three reservations on the
majority programme was deferred,
and it was said more would be added
to the list before the next meeting
of the committee. The three passed
over would provide that congress ap
point the American delegates to the
league and delegates to such other
International bodies as it chose; that
steps should be taken by the league
to prevent the white slave traffic;
and that the section validating the
acts of the alien property custodian

tionals of the United States.
The final reservation on the list
also was passed over.
The administration members made
a stubborn fight to modify the ma
jority's reservations, proposing change
after change and offering numerous
substitutes, without avail.
In the withdrawal reservation. Sen
ator Hitchcock proposed that "joint

current resolution" because the for
mer requires the president's signa
ture and the latter does not.
Monroe Doctrine Preserved.
For the Monroe doctrine reserva
tion, senator Hitchcock presented a
substitute providing that no question
depending upon or relating to the doc
trine should be submitted for arbi
tration or inquiry by the league, and
that the doctrine should be preserved
entirely unariected."
Regarding domestic questions, sub
stitutes were offered by both Senator
Hitchcock and Senator Pittman, demo
crat, Nevada. The former proposed
that the league be excluded from any
Jurisdiction , over "purely domestic
quetsions," which should remain
"solely within the jurisdiction of each
member nation." In Senator Pittman's
draft the same provision would be
made "regarding ail questions now or
heretofore recogtiized under Inter
national law as domestic." In both
proposals immigration, coastwise
traffic and the tariff were mentioned
Three proposals were made for sub
stitutes to the article 10 reservation
that was presented by Senator Hitch
cock, reading ns follows:
"The United States understands th
the advice which may be given by the
council of the league with regard to
the employment of the military and
naval forces by member nations under
article 10 is to be regarded only as
advice and leaves each member na
tion free to exercise its own judgment
as to whether It Is wise or practica
ble to act upon that advice; that the
congress must determine for the
United States its course."
Hughes Reservation Adopted.
After that was voted down. Sena
tor Williams, democrat. Mississippi,
moved substitution of the article 10
reservation drafted by Charles E.
Hughe and Senator Smith, democrat.
Arizona, proposed one under which
congress would be left free to "act
upon its own Judgment," in raising
military forces "to meet any of the
conditions which may arise" in the

tion of the German peace treaty prob
ably will be accomplished October 30
and a call will be Issued that day
for the first meeting of the council
of the league of nations, to take
place within 10 days.
The French foreign office explains
that tne delay, as had previously been
stated, was due entirely to the great
amount of preliminary work before
the convention could be put into ef
feet, such as creation of commissions
and the preparations by the military
missions for the tasks provided them
in the terms of the treaty.
