COST OF DRIVE IS LOW
Economy Will Govern Community
Chest Campaign Managers.
Community chest workers, basing
their estimate on similar charitable
campaigns held recently by other
cities of a size comparable with Port
land, announced yesterday that the
cost of raising the necessary amount
of money for the chest will be ap
proximately .0236 per cent of the
money secured. This estimate is an
nounced to contradict the former
understanding that tile cost would be
nearly 10 per cent of money raised.
In fact, said a member of the ex
ecutive committee, Portland antici
pates that the cost of raising funds
for the chest probably will be slightly
less than that borne by other municipalities.
Rochester. N. Y.. a city which has
for some time contributed yearly to
a chest, in 1919 raised $1,256,959, the
expense incident to obtaining this
amount being $32,327 or .0257 per
cent. Last year the same city suc
ceeded in lowering its expense
budget, raising $1,163,365, with the
campaign cost of $27,451 or .0236 per

LIBRARY TO BE EXAMINED
Uuslnes Men Invited (o Surtej
With a view of having the business
men of the city know more about the
activities of the public library, the
Library association has asked mem
bers of the Tortland Chamber of Com
merce to be guests Thursday, January
27, from S to :30 P. M. The associa
tion will keep open house and. In an
invitation extended to the members-hip
of the Chamber through H. B.
Van Duzer, president, asks the busi
ness men to observe the various de
partments in operation as well as to
see the work behind the scenes which
keeps the library going.

showing of a score of the leading
firms in offshore trade. It is the

display of products yet made in the
educational work of the library, and
shows the result of co-operation be

Speculation Centers on Whether
Mr. Hughes Would Accept Post
of State Secretary.
MARION. O., Jan. 13. With his
conferences here neanng a conclusion,
President-elect Harding devoted to
day to discussion of Incidental public
questions. The day's conferences re
vealed no development in regard to
cabinet appointments or other Impor
tant problems awaiting solution.
Speculation regarding the cabinet
Unow centers about the question of
whether Charles Evans Hughes of
New York is willing to accept the
post of secretaiy of state. There is
no evidence that a formal offer has
been made, but it is understood tha:
some time ago feelers were put out
to learn Mr. Hughes' attitude.
Developments in regard to virtually
all other cabinet places bid fair to
remain at a standstill for some weeks
Most of the information Mr. Harding
has collected has been tucked away,
to remain, present indications fore
cast, at least until after his house
boat excursion in Florida.
The association of nations, the ques
tion of Philippine independence and
the railways problem were the head
liners in Mr. Harding's conferences
Among the callers were Mrs. Ogden
Reid of New York, whose advice he is
understood to have sought in connec-
tior. with the world association plan:
Felix Davila. commissioner ot tha
Philippine Islands, and S. Davles War
Held, president of the Association of
Railway Securities Owners.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 President
elect Harding's suggestion that his
inauguration take place on the east
portico of the capitol was ratified
tormaily today by a joint congres
sional committee in charge of the
ceremonies. The front porch plan,
members said, would be carried out
literally and every possible dollar of
expense eliminated. No spectators'
stands, benches or even camp stools
would be provided, they added.
