The Governor was asked what his

"There was no reply," he said. He

Salt Lake Educators Not Agreed on
SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 21. Wheth

here shall be compelled to salute the
flag has caused a break in the ranks of
the Board of Education, and the board
adjourned tonight after a three hours'
session without taking action.
Several members of the board In
sisted that the school children should
be compelled to salute the flag and that
their willingness and the spirit dis
played In such ceremonies should be
credited to their regular school work.
Other members take the stand that It
Is' Impossible, to Induce patriotism in
children by compulsion and want to
make the ceremony of saluting the

The dispute arose after Lena Eyler, a

RICHMOND. Cal., Dec. 21. (Special.)
Mrs. D. Kavinet, a shoplifter, today
was caught with enough eggs in her
stockings to make a family omelet.
Mrs. Kavlnet's home is in this city.
Eggs have disappeared every time she
visited a market conducted by T. D.

for her. They faded from sight on her
visit to the market today, and Morgan
called Policeman Phillips. A woman
at the Jail made a search and reported
nothing doing In the egg line. Morgan
averred that unless Mrs. Kavinet had
Herrmann beaten, the eggs were on her

CHICAGO, Dec 21. One million, one

Clean Food League In the campaign to
break the egg market.
This is 400,000 more than were sold
yesterday and concludes the selling of
eggs in the present campaign to bring
the price down. The managers of the
sale point to the fact that dealers
throughout the city have offered for
sale guaranteed eggs at the league's
price of 24 cents a dozen or less.
A few egg-selling stations will be
maintained permanently In different
parts of the city, it was announced, to
night as "monitors" to see that the

however, will not undertake to supply
eggs in as great quantities as in the

STATE TO BACK PROPOSAL
Board of Health Lays Foundation
for One of Greatest Benefactions
Ever Attempted on Pacific
Coast Election neld.
SALEM, Or., Dec. 21. (Special.)
Laying the foundation for one of the
greatest pure water supply plans ever
attempted on the Pacific Coast, the
State Board of Health at its annual
meeting hero today adopted a report
from Engineer Kelsey, which covers a
pure water plan from Clear Lake to
provide water for all of the cities and
towns of the Willamette Valley.
Some such a project was outlined by
the State Board of Health many months
ago and It was placed with Mr. Kelsey
to work out the details. The report
has been finished and 1000 copies of it
will be printed.
Clear Lake, 100 miles from Salem, on
a bee line, the source of the Willam
ette River and a lake with an Inex
haustible supply of pure mountain
water, was selected as the source of
supply for the immense system that is
State Behind Project.
The scheme, in a nutshell, i3 to place
the state behind the project. The cost
of realizing the dream of the members
of the State Board is estimated at ap
proximately $4,000,000. Co-operation,
both financial and otherwise, would be
demanded of all the cities and towns
that come under the project, including
all of them in the Willamette Valley
down to Portland. '.".'..
Part of the schema would he the fur
nishing of a source of supply to the
State Capitol and all of the state in
stitutions. . .
To act as an executive head of the
plan, Governor West suggested and
prepared written data covering the
point, that the State Board, including
the Governor, Secretary of State and
State Treasurer, be given charge of
condemning rights of way and acquir
ing: water rights.
Conference to Be Called.
It is probable that a conference will
be called of all the heads of cities and
towns In the valley to take up discus
sion of the plan and the concrete fea
tures of it. While doubt has been ex
pressed as to the possibility legally, at
the present time of floating a bond is
sue of $4,000,000 to Carry out the proj
ect, the Governor has suggested that
legal impediments may be swept away
by a vote of the people and that the
coming Legislature could prepare the
road for placing the necessary amend
ments before the people two years
It Is not at all certain that there are
such legal Impediments, but this was
offered as a suggestion in event such
Impediments might stand in the way
of bringing the idea to fruition.
There are a score of cities and towns
in the Willamette Valley which would
benefit by this project and would
probably lend their hearty support, as
in many of them the water question
has been a vital issue for half a cen
tury or more.
But it is not alone to the Willamette

SEATTLE. Wash., Dec. 21. (Spe

umphed over the galaxy of stars as
sembled under the guise of the Wash
ington Athletic Club Dy a score of 15
to 6, but not before the scarlet and
white had been treated to a terrible
scare, its first real test In three years.
Seattle led at the end of the first half.
6 to 0.
Two thousand persons saw the game.
Multnomah's scores were made In the
third period, on two touchdowns by
straight football, and a place-kick by
Keck from the SO-yard line. Seattle
counted six In the opening quarter,
when Johnny Bender recovered a punt
on Multnomah's 10-yard line and shot
across the goal. Captain Hurlburt, of
Multnomah, protested vigorously
against Umpire Skeel's declaration that
Rinehart had touched the ball, but to
no avail. The official stood within a
few feet of the play and his ruling,
probably was right, although a largo
number of spectators disagreed.
Multnomah In Reinforced.
While Multnomah carried the ball
to the one-yard line in the first half,
only to lose on a fumble, meanwhile

odds but for the reinforcements rushed

and Keck to fullback, and the trans
formation was remarkable.
