taric or his sentiments nave
Mr. Critt.nton is being reported as op
posed to "driving out wayward girls. ana

the gist of his discourses, it were better

After making as close an Investigation or
the social evil as I have been able in law
courts and one anxious to get at the truth
of the matter. I am convinced that to al
low disorderly women the privilege of living
here In violation of law and decency under
all circumstances, stands in the name class
with every other violation ofr law and vir
tue. It is true that the summary ''driving
out of wayward lrls" .may work a hardship
to many, "unless the proper forces are there
t. assist them. Violation of law. either
statutory or moral, brings its punishment:
and it is likewise true that the removal of
disease calls for the knife.
Disorderly houses in any community, can
have no other effect than to lower morals. It
were better to sacrifice a few of the tar
nished ones, for the sake of the many.
During the- months I have resiaea in
Portland I have been curious to note the
effect of the system recently adopted, and
am natisfted that with a little closer appn
r.ilnn of the ordinance of prohibition re
specting disorderly houses, a most favorable
result will obtain and much has been ac
complished already. It is now required of
the churches and societies in hand, includ
ing those bearing the Crlttenton name, re
npcted and honored by all, to make good
and rescue wayward girls under these more
favorable conditions. Don't forget that boys
need some attention as well.

Klamutli Falls Expects to See Active
Construction on Natron "Cut
off Early Xext Year.
KLAMATH FALLS. Or., Oct. 30. (Spe
cial.) The final survey maps of the rail
road lines from this city to Natron, Or.,
and to Alturus, Cal.. have beon filed in
the land office at Lakevicw. While
actual construction Is under way on the
Natron line from both ends, nothing has
as yet been done on the Alturas line ex
cept to complete the survey.
This line will be constructed soon. It
is stated, though it is believed that noth
ing will be attempted in the way of con
struction until Spring. This line as sur
veyed will pass directly down the main
Klamath Valley via Merrill on Lost River,
pass around the head of Tula Lake
through' the Bohemian settlement on the
Lakeside tract, where the Modoc mas
sacre of November, 1S72, occurred, thence
down in a southerly direction on the eadt
side of Tule Lake, closely following Fre
mont's exploration route of 1S46, thence
southeasterly across an undulating open
country to Alturas, Modoc County, Cal.,
there connecting with the present line
already constructed to the tntral Pa
cific overland line at Reno. This will
give us Eastern connection and through
a region presenting no engineering diffi
culties. From here to Natron, where
the road now extending north from this
place will connect with the present sys
tem at the head of the Willamette Val
ley, the distance is 198 miles, of which
60 miles is under contract and construc
tion. It appears to be the purpose of the
company to push this work with all
possible vigor, so that in less than two
years Klamath Falls will probably be
nearly 200 miles nearer to Portland by
rail than at present.

PRIZE BOX, $21,501
Wyatt Pays Fancy Price for
PREMIUM FRUIT AUCTIONED
Spirited Bidding for Apples After
Fair Closes Kims Up Price.
Choice Display Will Be Sent to
Illinois to Attract Interest.
ALBANY", Or., Oct. 30. (Special.)
J. R. Wyatt, of Portland, Assistant
United States District Attorney, paid
$21.50 today for the best bpx of Soitzen
berg apples at the Albany Apple Fair.
The box was bid in for Wyatt by At
torney L. L.' Swan, of this city, at the
auction held at the fair this forenoon.
This Is the largest price ever paid
for a single box of apples in the Wil
lamette Valley. It had won first prize
for the best box of Spitzenbergs at the
fair in competition with several boxas
of splendid apples. The apples were
grown by G. B. Peebler, at his large
orchard thre5 miles east of Albany.
Wyatt, who was a resident of Albany
prior to his appointment to the Federal
position at Portland, instructed Swan
to buy him the best box of Spitzen
Wtrgs and also the best box of North
ern Spies exhibited at the. fair, no mat
ter what the cost. It happened that
the box of Spitnbergs was the first
one put up at auction, and the bidding
for the magnificent apples was spirited.
It went beyond all expectations, and
Swan's offer of $21.50 finally won. The
box of Northern Spies was put up
later, and Swan bid It In for Wyatt
Sixty-two boxes of the splendid in
dividual exhibits at the. fair were auc
tioned off by Wallace R. Struble, on
behalf of the executive committee of
the fair, this forenodn. The second
highest price paid for a box was $8,
which sum P. A. Toung, a'Mocal mer
chant, paid for the prie box of Yellow
Newtown Pippins." Several boxes sold
at $5 each, but most of them sold at
$2.50 and $3 a box.
The executive committee auctioned
off the individual exhibits which came
into their possession under the entry
rules when-they won prizes. Besides
the apples sold at auction, many ex
hibitors sold boxes which had failed to
secure prizes at private sale. These
were practically as good as the prize
winners, and brought from $2 to $2.50
J. M. Hawkins, who recently came
here from Paris, 111., and, with two men
from the same city, formed the Oregon
Title & Trust Company and engaged
in the real estate and abstract business
here, bought a dozen boxes of splendid
apples to take back to Illinois with
him. He will soon make a visit to
Paris, 111., and desires to show his
former townsmen some of the famous
apples of the Willamette Valley.
The Lane County exhibit, which won
first prize for the best county exhibit
at the fair, was kept Intact, and will
be exhibited in Portland during the
next few weeks. The Benton County
exhibit, which took second prize, was
also kept ' intact, and will be taken to
Corvallis and displayed at the Com
mercial Club rooms there. The Marion
County exhibit, winner of third prize,
was broken up today and the boxes,
sold at private sale.
CLUBS ARE HELPFUL
PRESIDENT CAMPBELU FAVORS
House Managers Are Notified by
Faculty Committee When Mem
bers Are Lax In Work.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. Eugene,
Or., Oct. 30. (Special.) In an address be
fore the student body yesterday, which
he made particularly for the benefit of
the freshmen and other new students.
President P. L.' Campbell spoke on
"Planning the Semester." He empha
sized especially the value to the students
of planning in advance their college
work, and planning it with a definite end
In view. He also declared that college
fraternities are distinctly helpful when
they unite with the faculty In efforts to
make for good scholarship as one' of the
principal- qualities of their members, as
they do at Oregon,
president Campbell said in part:
"Three things are especially important
to the student in preparing for his semes
ter's work. One is the habit of long
headed planning in advance.. The second
is the ability to use time effectively.
And the third is to get the capacity for
sustained and concentrated effort.
"In the 20 weeks of . the semester there
should be a gradual increase In the
amount of work done up to Thanksgiving.
Then comes a needed relaxation, fol
lowed by three weeks of hard work un
til the Christmas holidays. After that
are five weeks td the end of the semester,
and it Is in these five weeks that the
maximum efficiency of the college stu
dent should be at Its greatest.
"If a student can get the habit of
self-application out of his university
work, his college training will have been
more than worth the while. It is the
ability to 'get right down to serious work
that we try to teach you at the Uni
versity of Oregon more than the mere
knowledge that is gotten out of books.
"It is our aim to arrange so that stu
dents shall have 13 hours of actual reci
tation work each week, each hour of
recitation involving about two hours of
preparation. This makes a total of 45
hours a week, or about eight hours a
day of work, which I think Is enough
for the average student; eight of relaxa
tion and eight for absolute rest.
"In order to see that this work is done,
we have reports every day of absences
and the general standing of each stu
dent. Then there is a formal report on
the standing of every, undergraduate
once each month. This results in very
high standards and keeps the students
In close touch with the. faculty. In or
der further to carry out this idea, if a
student is below standing his adviser Is
notified, and in turn, if the student is
a fraternity man, the head of his fra
ternity hduse is notified. This plan has
been found to work splendidly in keep
ing up scnolarsliip requirements. The
house managers are anxious to keep
their members in good standing, and they
can accomplish more than the faculty
alone could ever do unaided."
