    THE MORNING OREGONTAN, TIHTRSDAT, DECEMBER lfi, 1020
GREEK REGAL PARTY
WELDOMED H ITALY
Honor Is That Due Sovereign
of Friendly Nation.
Caufclanilne Will Depart on Last
Lc of Homeward Trip
This Morning.
VENICE, Dec 13. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Former King Con
stantine of Greece, on his way homo
from Switzerland and exile to'reoc
cupy the throne of Greece, was re
ceived this morning; with all the hon
. ors due the sovereign of a friendly
nation by the Italian government.
Constantine and the members of
his family arrived early this morn
ing. They were met at the railway
etation by the Italian admiral of the
port, the mayor of Venice and other
officials and M. Coromilas, the Greek
minister to Italy, who married Miss
Ccckrell, daughter of the late United
States Senator Cockrell. The officers
of all the naval ships in port also
were present.
Shortly after his arrival Constan
tine boarded the Greek cruiser Aver
off, which boomed forth a salue of 21
Kuns. The salute was lanen up uy
the old fort on the island of St
Georce.
Constantine will depart on the last
leg of his homeward journey between
6 and 6 o'clock Thursday morning.
The Averoff on the voyage to Greece
will be accompanied by destroyer
escort and merchant ship which will
have on board the newspaper corre
epondents and a few members of Con
stantine's suite.
ments which have ' long maintained
ministries of education represented in
their cabinets. While mv own MmI 1
envisages a broader scope for the
new department giving it concern
wun many other phases of human
welfare, it is interesting to know that
us creation will for the first time
place great work on a phase of dig.
mty comparable to that given it in
many otner countries.
Training; Is DUeuawd.
"Whether we mav esteem it iiu nr
unwise, the modern mothr nmi
alize that society disposes more and
I more to take from her control the
(training, the intellectual direction and
1 cne spiritual guidance of her chil
jdren. We may well Dlead with the
hinrv l mine IT WCMirC "l0??"? to nal" the most, for good.
."UK I I LHIVUO HI limuu oi me lessened opportunity thev dos
ior morning tne lives and minds
of their children. Through such co
operative effort as this, it seems to
me there is opportunity for a great
service. Herein is presented the op
portunity to lift up the poorer and
tne lese fortunate to a higher level.
"rie mother who indefatlgably
seeks to train her own child rightly
will be performing this service not
only for her own children, but for
those from other homes not so richly
blessed with the finer things of life.
I confess to no great satisfaction in
the good fortune of those families
which, when they become sufficiently
well-to-do, like to take their children
away from the public schools and
give them the doubtful advantage of
more exclusive educational processes. I
like the democracy of the community
school, and, indeed, I would like to
see a greater measure of it enforced
in the public schools by the elimina
tion of those evidences of entrava
gance in dress and social Indulgence
which make for the development ot
something like caste within our de
mocracy. Co-operation Is L'rs-ed.
"On the side of the teacher, and
the responsible authorities back of
her, there must - be the same ready
disposition to oo-operate with the
home and the mother. Our public
school system leaves to the home and
Its influence the great duty of in
stilling into the child those funda
mental concepts of religion which are
so essential in shaping the character
of individual citizens and, therefore,
of the nation That duty remains to
be performed at the hearthside, and
will always be peculiarly prerogative
of the mother. I could wish. Indeed,
that our nation might have a revival
of religious spirit along these lines.
"There never was a time when the
world stood in more need than it does
now of the consolations and reassur
ances which only a firm religious
faith can have. It is a time of un
certainty, of weakened faith in the
efficiency of institutions, of industrial
system, of economic hypotheses, of
dictum and dogma. Whatever our
realm, let not our engrossment with
those things which are concerned
merely with matter and mind distract
us from proper attention to those
which are of the spirit and the soul.
Undernourishment la Noted.
"It has been demonstrated to aston
ishing and alarming certainty that a
large proportion of school children
and even of adults suffer from under
nourishment. Perhaps in the case
of most adults the fault is of the In
dividual rather than society. With I
children, however, it is otherwise. If
society caa permitted the develop
ment of a system under which the
citizens of tomorrow suffer real pri
vation today, then the obligation is
upon society to right that wrong, to
insure some measure of Justice to the
children, who are not responsible for
being here.
I am not of those who believe leg
islation can find panaceas for all ills,
but on the other hand I am not of
those who fear to undertake through
legislation the formation of new programmes.
I firmly believe that our country.
along with others that claim to share
n the world's leadership, has lately
achieved one victory In behalf of a
better understanding and more intelli
gent grasp of these problems. I re
fer to the bestowal upon women of
full participation ' in the privileges
and obligations of citizenship. With
her part wider in influence in the
world of affairs, I think we shall see
woman and her finer spiritual in
stincts at length leading mankind to
higher planes of religion, of human-
am and of ennobling spirituality.
Healthful mothers, amid fit condi
tions for maternity, healthful, abund
antly nourished children, amid fit
conditions for development, mentally
and physically all made certain
by the generation of today In its con
cern for tomorrow will guarantee a
citizenry from the soli of America
which will be the guarantee of Amer
ican security and the American fulfillment"

Angeles Detectives.
LOS ANGELES, Dec 15. The mur

police detectives tonight, with no im
mediate prospect of a solution, they
said.
Bernard Sudow, the woman's former
husband, held a long conference with
detectives today and was believed to
have given them information which
started a search for an elderly resi
dent of Los Angeles, who it was said,
had sought to marry Mrs. Sudow.

Testimony Before Investigating
Body Says Cattle Kings Have
Control of Acreage.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 15. -The ays
tem of government which Irish repub
llcan leaders propose to set up in
Ireland was described as "an ideal co
operative commonwealth" by Lau
rence Glnnell, former Irish member
of the British narllament. in test!
mony today before the commission of
the committee of 100 investigating
the Irish question.
Mr. Glnnell, who declined to appear
before the commission until he had
been assured that it would not "at
tempt to go behind the present Irish
republic in any of its recommenda.
tions, presented a rough draft of the
government system proposed by the
Irish republicans.
The ancient Breton ' laws, from
which many of the present-day eo
clalisttc doctrines -are derived, Mr,
Ginnell said, probably will form the
basis for Ireland's form of govern
ment, should the efforts of the re
publican leaders to gain independ
ence of Great Britain prove success
ful. He told the committee be had
written a book on socialism, obtain
lng his material from these la.ws.
Land Leases Are Preferred.
Land in Ireland apportioned under
the British land act for tilling, he
said, had been leased to "favored
cattle raisers." necessitating mlgra
tion at intervals of a large part of
the population in some districts to
England to find work. The govern
mental system which the Irish re
publicans plan to put into effect, he
said, contemplates "breaking up of
the large land tracts of land in Ire
land, now used for grazing and dis
tributing them on smaller parcels, to
suitable persons to be tilled."
Mr. Ginnell, as well as Ruth Rus
sell, another witness, who last year
investigated conditions in Ireland for
the Chicago Daily Aews, declared that
the religious issue in Ireland has
been "artificially stimulated" and ex
aggerated.
Miss Russell went extensively into
social, economic and religious condi
tions and endeavored to establish that
mill owners la the province of Ulster
had stirred up religious Intolerance to
prevent organization of their workers.
This religious feeling has been sub
merged in a unanimity of opinion
favoring self-determination for Ire
land, she declared.
British Policy Held Ruinous.
Miss Russell said that the British
authorities, by making it more prof.
itable for the large , land owners to
raise cattle than to lease their lands
to small farmers, had brought about
distressing economic conditions in
Ireland. Small farms are turned into
grazing lands, flour mills and other
industry dependent on agriculture are
Idle, she said, adding that no employ
ment for the people bad taken their
place, as the cattle were exported on
the hoof.
Living conditions, Miss Russell
said, are worse in Dublin than in any
other city with almost 40 per cent
ot the city population, or 25,000
families living In one-room dv elllngs.
The commission will continue its
hearings tomorrow with Pedriac
Colum, Irish writer and poet, and
Paul Furnas, an American Quaker,
who was In Ireland in connection
with the Society of Friends Investi
gation of Irish conditions, listed to
appear.

the expiration of ten days, however,
unless the ramps have been repaired,
the barricades again will be installed,
it was announced.
Owners of the ramps and business
men whose establishments are located

to the city council yesterday that an

injustice to them.

tained that notice had been served on
the dock owners more than a year

Bigelow ordered a resurvey of the
docks affected to ascertain if any of
the owners had made repairs, as was
