First steps in the organization of the
Oregon Dairymen's League were taken
yesterday morning, whea a. number of
the. producers met in the Public Li
brary to discuss the present situation
and to take action that is calculated' to
remedy existing conditions. Alma I.
The purpose of the new organization
is so to arrange affairs that its mem
bers may be enabled to make spire
thin? out of their operations, according
to Mr. Katz.
Officers were elected as follows:
Alma r. Katz, of Portland, president;
Jacob Luecher, of Fairview, vice-president:
Percy A. Smith, of Portland, secretary-treasurer;
J- W. Pomeroy, of Scappoose; Jacob
iiuscher, of Fairview; Thomas Car
michael, of Gaston, and Jack Appleton,
of Deer Island. The president is ex
officio member of the committee.
Director Are Chosen
Directors are: John Slaret and ' E.
Pchwedler, of Greshair; II. Thiessen, of
Milwaukee; J. H. Sangurneff, of Marion
County; T. K. Armstrong anQ Thomas

County. Washington. .
Members of the organization agree
to all of their product being handled
through this agency instead of each
producer arranging for the sale of his
own output, as now.
It is the intention of the organiza
tion, when completed and officered, to
employ a manager whoso duties shall
be to cut down, wherever possible, the
cost of production.- One way mentioned
Is by combining the buying power of
the members, thereby obtaining better
prices on food and other necessities of
the dairymen. In this way alone, it Is
figured, much money will be saved the
4O00 Cowl Represented.
The members of the organization
each subscribe to one share of stock
for each of their cows, and it was the
original plan to have not less than
$7500 in the fund before forming an
organization. Four thousand head were
represented yesterday. However, as It
appeared necessary that prompt action
be taken, partial organization was ef
fected yesterday morning.
Mr. Katz says that whatever' Vrlce
fixing is done by the organization will
be purely for the purpose of giving
relief to dairymen and some returns on
tfreir investments and for their work. .
It the plans carry the members of
tne organization will sell all of their
product through this agency, and for
this work the league is to receive a
commission of 5 cents for each 100
pounds and 14 cents a pound for butterat.
ROAD WORK ADVANCING

KLAMATH FALLS. Or.. Sept. 22.
(Special.) While Klamath Falls is
more or less aware that railroad work
is now going on, few here realize- the
extent of this activity right at the city's
doors. Ib needs a trip along the new
btrahorn grade to Olene to bring this
realization. Piled along the temporary
pur from the Southern Pacific's Y,"
near Mills Addition, just east of the
city, arc areat ricks of rails, tics, cul
vert iron and other equipment for a
distance of a quarter of & mile.
The vatot amouti t of material neces
sary for this construction is empha
sized when it is piled in one place. All
the steel, with the exception of two
carloads for the line to Dairy, is here.
Big piles of ties cover a large area,
and it is aid that oifly one-fourth of
thi amount needed, has been delivered.
The road grade is now practically
completed' to the Frank Corpening
property, near Olene, and rails are
being laid over the first two miles. The
Trad is 12 miles.
A 2000-yard siding has been complet
ed near here. Xelay in the shipment
of material has handicapped construction.

REED PLANS TOPIC
Faculty to Hold Series of
Meetings During Week.
PHYSICAL TRAINING FIRST
Activity Taken in War Service and
Several Instructors Are With
Vnits, While Others Have-As-
' fei feted in Advisory Manner. '
The faculty of Reed College will hold
a series of conferences at the college,
beginning: tomorrow, to get ready for
the opening of college, October 1. Com
mittees have been appointed and will
make recommendations to the faculty
concerning- war measures, economies,
scholarship and research, relations of
college and community, the curriculum
and other college problems.
The first question is a change of
schedule in order to relate the work of
the col le pe more effectively to National
needs. The proposed schedule allows
five hours a week for physical training:
for- the men. The policy in physical
education at Reed College has been
from the start physical exercise for all
the students. In accordance with that
policy physical work is required of all
students throughout tha four years of
the course. The new schedule now pro
posed increases the number of hours
required each week.
Facility Members Serve.
Most of the members of the faculty
have been engaged this Summer - in
work directly connected with the Na
tional, emergency. President Foster,
who has been in France as official in
spector for the American Red Cross
War Council, which is now a part of
the Army organization, is on his way
home. Professor Norman K. Coleman
Is director of the educational and re
ligious work at Camp Lewis, Ameri
can Lake. Professor H. H. Torrey
served as a member of the exemption
board for the Army draft. C. H. Gray,
one of the new instructors in English,
worked all Summer in the department
of the Government Auditor, and for the
last month has been chief timekeeper
at the cantonment at Menlo Park, Cali
fornia. Professor J. J. Stahl, who en
listed in the naval militia, is now at
the naval training station on the "Uni
versity of Washington grounds in Seat
tle, and Professor Max P. Cushing is
at Camp Lewis in the ambulance corps.
Dr. Calvin S- White, medical examiner
for the men of the college, is chief of
the medical service in a 1000-bed base
hospital at Camp Lewis.
Jr. George Norman Pease has been
appointed medical examiner during the
absence of Dr. White. Dr. Pease is one
of the lecturers in the University of
Oregon medical course and is a gradu
ate of Cornell, of 1904, taking his med
ical degree in 1907. He taught anatomy
at Cornell for one semester after grad
uation. Ten of the members of the faculty
and a number of the students have
worked in the potato and bean field
planted by the college last Spring.
The opportunities for students to earn
their college expenses will be greater
this year than ever before, on account
of the large number of upper-classmen
who have enlisted. The college guar
antees work on the grounds and build
ings at 25 cents an hour for all men
MEN TO PICK FRUIT
APPLE GROWERS REALIZE THAT
MEN ARE SCARCE.
River Crop Promises to
Close to Million Boxes
HOOD EIVER, Or., Sept. 22. (Spe
cial.) The. 1917 Hood River apple crop,
which will approximate 1,000.000 boxes,
must, according; to R. P. Bonham, di
rector of the Portland office of the
United States Immigration Bureau, be
picked to a large extent by women.
Communicating yesterday with F. "W.
Buff, manager of the Fruitgrowers' Ex
change, ilr. Bonham said:
'"This service plans again to assist
the Hood River Valley growers in. har
vesting their crops. We will open an
office in Hood River in October.
"It should be borne in mind that men
are scarce, and. therefore, women must
be employed more than heretofore. You
should reconcile yourself to this fact
and govern yourself accordingly.
"It is suggested that if your help is
satisfactory this year you secure their
names .nd addresses and invite them to
return next year. Tou are in a per
manent business and your labor prob
lem is important and may be vital to
you next year."
At a recent conference of shipping
organizations the following wage scale
was communicated to the Portland em
ployment office: Men, from 25 to 30
cents per hour; women, 20 to 25 cents
per hour; packing, 4 to 4 cents from
sizing machines, and 6 cents from table,
where it is necessary also to sort fruit.
It is believed that it wilt be necessary
to pay a minimum of 2.76 per day to
men and $2.25 for women.

Rey. C. E- Cline "Visits Illinois State Fair and Investigates Dark Crime

At Springfield, 111., the State Fair Is
in session, with the Illinois Grand Army
of the Republic in session, to which
Governor Lowden, In the forenoon of
the second day, made an address clear
and strong for eupport of our armies
now being organized. The suppression
of treachery and treason at home, be
ginning with the Mayor of Chicago, the
Governor declares, will be accomplished.
Governor Lowden Is a son-in-law of
the great sleeping car proprietor, Pull
man, his wife being immensely popular
with the people of Illinois and .inter
esting herself actively in Rell Cross
matters and every measure for the com
fort of the soldiers.
In the afternoon your correspondent
was drafted into making an address to
the Illinois veterans, with whom he
served at the front more than a half
century ago. A hearty invitation was
extended to veterans to visit Portland
at the next National encampment, to
which response came: "We voted for
Portland at Boston and We're -coming
to take possession of your city. We
want to see your country and eat come
of your ealmon." I said: "Come on."
Springfield, notwithstanding It is the
home of Abraham Lincoln, has a full
share of fools. Because the Mayor, by
advice of Governor Lowden. prohibited
the other Sunday a demonstration by
some coal miners on the streets, all
miners quit work, and they were fol
lowed by the bakers, barbers, butchers,
carpenters, streetcar men and watch
makers, numbering more than 3000 in
all. Just as the State Fair beiran, with
the city full of strangers. Where such
folly is to end is a grave problem.
On this same fairground, in 1S54, Ste
phen A. Douglas made his memorable
speech in the endeavor to explain his
action In securing a repeal of the "Mis
souri Compromise" in Congress and
enacting in its place the "Squatter
Sovereignty" law, which inaugurated
the Kansas and Nebraska internal war.
To th speech of Judge Douglas,
Abraham Lincoln replied next day a
speech that made Mr. Lincoln President,
and perhaps the greatest effort of his
life. Under that speech no one was
more astounded than Douglas himself:
A neighbor of ours present, in giving
to my father an account of the scene,
said: "Judge Douglas looked as if two
Fourths of July had come together."
Tour correspondent has mixed here
with soldiers, officers and citizens, dis
cussing freely the outlook of the times.
There seems to be a consensus of opin
ion that we are in the gravest peril of
our National life, and to minimise the
danger is to invite National disaster be
yond all recovery. But, depressing as
times are, there are things to hearten.
When this war came upon us every
thing was not well in America. Dis
cipline was breaking down in the home,
in the churches and everywhere. This
war already has sobered us. A new
birth of a new nationalism is already
In the humble opinion o! your corre
spondent the peril we now face Is
greater than that of 1S61. If we had
failed then we should still have had
shelter for our wives and children, with
some country left. But if we lose this
war. all is lost. This war is the final
battle between two principles which
cannot exist together in this world.
When the smoke lifts from the present
conflict we shall. In America, and
throughout the world, be all slave or all
free, for which reason, no sacrifice is
too great for any man to make. With
deepest gratification your correspond
ent tells of Oregon exceeding her pro
portion of liberty bonds, money for the
Red Cross, and in most of the counties
her quota by volunteers of men for the
The massacre of colored people in
East St- Louis, which I have investi
gated, is one of the blackest deeds in
the history of our race, for which the
Mayor is now under indictment by the
grand jury, with the members of the
Council and policemen galore. Homes,
hundreds of them, were burned, mothers
with babes feeding at theirebreasts
were shot and butchered, while offi
cers (?) of the law winked at the hor
rible tragedies. And all for no reason
other than the color of the skin of the
victims and that they were willing to
do honest work for the bread they ate.
The city of St. Louis is demanding
that the place guilty of euch crimes
shall not carry the name, even in part,
of "St. Louis." while the National Con
gress has appointed a committee to in
vestigate the whole matter.
Tour correspondent took special pains
to investigate, on the ground, the in
describable massacre, much of which is
too revolting for publication. Nothing
approaching it has occurred in any of
the- Southern states, ' where burning
negroes has been often reported.
I have Just conversed with a man off
the train from Southwest Missouri, who
engaged, he says, before starting, a
"lower middle" berth in a standard Pull
man, only to find, when he went on the
train, his berth occupied by another
man, whereby my friend was obliged to
take an "upper" in another car. In a
collision on the Journey the man in the
"lower middle" was killed, and my
friend now says: "Never will I again
occupy a lower berth in a sleeping car."
