ating a legal tangle with which the
state department has nothing to do
at this time. Officials said today they
contemplated no action whatever on
their own motion. They would not
discuss legal phases of the question.
The National Constitutional league
announced the appellate court would
be asked to refer the league's suit
against ratification to, the supreme

that ginal decision could be had with

CHICAGO. Sept.. 1. Mrs. Harriet
Taylor Upton, vice-chairman of the
repuhlican national committee, today
told & conference of republican lead
ers from Mississippi valley states
that she had been assured by Secre
tary of State Colby and Assistant Attorney-General
Frierson that there
was no way in which the Tennessee
legislature could nullify its ratifica
tion of the suffrage amendment.
This information was given her,
however, she said, before the action

voted to expunge from its records its
Forty-four teachers were elected
last night at a special meeting of the
Portland school board to fill the
placet of teachers who have resigned.
Thirty will teach in the elementary
schools, three are grade school prin
cipals, nine are high school teachers
and two are manual training Instruc
tors. The teachers, who were recom
mended by D. A. Grout, city school
superintendent, were elected unani
mously by the board.
The meeting last night grew out of
committee meetings of the board
members and since many matters
were to be discussed the board was
declared in session by George M. Or
Mathematics Head Resigns.
The resignation of Omar N. Bittner,
snifcmltted last night for the first
time, caused much discussion. Mr.
Bittner, who is the head of the mathe
matics department at the Washington
High school, asked that his resigna
tion be accepted, since he had just
been offered a position as superin
tendent of the McMinnville schools.
A. C. Newill, member of the board,
moved that his resignation be accept
ed, although Mr. Newill said that Mr.
Bittner was a valuable man and he
desired to keep him if it were possible
to make his salary adequate. Mr.
Woodward objected to letting Mr.
Bittner go, because, he said, other
teachers would be offering their res
ignations late and leaving Portland.
He voted against the resignation,
since he felt that Mr. Bittner should
James John Site Next.
The necessity for choosing a site
for the proposed new James John
high school was brought up by George
B. Thomas, member of the board. Mr.
Thomas said that a site should be se
lected soon, so that construction could
begin when the money for building
will be ready in January. Frank L.
Shul! and Mr. Newill were authorized
to obtain options on sites for the ,
The buying of additional property
for the Franklin high school site fur
nished a topic for long discussion. Ad
ditional land is needed if the building
Is to be completed according to the
original architectural plan, and yet
the land in front of the stadium is
more than necessary, school board
members stated. They hesitate to sell
this extra land because they do not"
wish the view from the building to be
obstructed by dwelling houses, which
would probably be erected there. No
decision was reached.
Two Others Resisn
Resignations from Jean L. Grubb
and Margaret Cunningham-Nissen
were referred to the committee on
educational affatrs. Miss Naomi Arm
strong of the Thompson school was
granted a leave of absence on account
of ill health for the first five months
of school. The Balary of Miss Anne
Mulheron, head of the school depart
ment of the library, was raised from
J160 to $170 a month. The board
pays half of this salary.
The question of the legal tangle
which might ensue if the present

of this year Harry M. Blair of my

It was not only not adopted. It

ee was determined to trv out the

my office, which was recalled and
"On July 6, 1920, there was issued
from my office a circular with refer
ence to the financing of the campaign
embodying the plan which had actual
ly been adopted and which was based
on limiting contributions to $1000.
This circular specifically stated, in
keeping with the policy of the na
tional committee to popularize the fi
nancial support of the 1920 presiden
tial election campaign, no single sub
scription to the republican' national
committee of more than $1000 , is to
be solicited (contributions cannot be

Names of all contributors together
with the amounts they have eiven
from June 14 to August 26. 1920.
There were 12,389 men and women
contributors to both the national
committee and to state committees.
Through the Joint collecting organi
zation an average of $82 was given.
Of these none have been over the
$1000 rule except eight, which might
have given a total of $13,500. or an
average of $1687.50. The highest of
these was $2500. '
Budget Totnls Around $ 3,000,000.
This announcement was in accord
ance with the budget which had been
worked out on strictly business lines.
This budget for the presidential cam
paign, as has been repeatedly stated
amounted to a little' over $3,000,000.
Governor Cox is talking about
something which never a any time
had my approval or the committee's
approval, was never adopted, never

else as a basis for the collection of
funds or In any way whatsoever."
duced in 1920 and prior years, the
public service commission has an
nounced. Before the hay season of
1921 the commission will render a de
cision as to grades that shall govern
the crop of 1921 and following years.
Many shippers, dealers and grow
ers had urged the commission to
adopt the National Hay association
grades in this state, but after inves
tigation the commission decided that
the association's grades do not alto
gether fit conditions existing in the
hay-growing sections of Washington,
and expressed the opinion that as
soon as amended to make them adapt
able to the kinds and qualities of
hay grown In this state and that
when they have been made so spe
cific that no difficulties will arise as
to their interpretation, they should
be made effective by the commission.
Their adoption at this time, the com
mission finds, or any other departure
from existing grades, would result In
confusion and possible Injury to the
growers and dealers.
The commission also ordered elim
ination of the differential in smut
ting charges between sacked and bulk
wheat. The smutting charges as es
tablished by the new regulations are:
Wheat containing one-half of 1 per
cent to 3 per cent of smut. 50 cents
a, ton; 3 to 7 per cent, 75 cents a
ton; 7 to 15 per cent, 90 cents a
ton; 15 per cent and over. $1 a ton.

Padded Values Exposed.
The commission has gone on rec
ord as being unequivocally opposed
to the pyramiding of leases, which
has grown to be a lucrative industry
of a certain class of operators. Re
ports have been received of one deal
wherein advances have been from
$5000 to $13,000 in Eeven months, on
the furnishings and lease of a room
ing house, with only a year for the
lease to run. Estimating the value of
the furniture at $5000, as the owner
does, it will be necessary to realize
$16,000 from tenants in profits in or
der for the buyer to break even. An
other instance has come to attention
in which the advance was from $9000
to $21,000, the pyramiding having
been accomplished in four or five
turnovers. The commission last night
decided to ask the better business bu
reau of the Portland Ad club to
utilize its authority to -advertise and
warn intending buyers to consult the
ommisslon as to the correct value of
furnishings offered for sale with
leases on rooming houses and apart
