Tiffany, "and when Huntington gets
all of his men out for practice, proh
ably about the middle of th coming
week, he is going to have the nucleus
for a good team. The boys are all

another two weeks that will give the

Camp Lewis In Tacoma Stadium
Thanksgiving day. There is no doubt
but that such an attraction in the City
of Destiny would peak the mammoth
tadlum to the doors. Football is
tlg attraction at Camp Lewis. In their
first game of the season last Sunday
against the Foundation eleven of this
city standing room was at a premium.
The big Camp Lewis athletic field ac
commodates 15,000 people, but Captain
Cook's warriors are such an attraction
that the "S- R. O." sign was hung out
The Marines are said to be demand
ing a pretty fair-sized expense allow
ance. They always travel in style.
Under the guiding eye of Captain New
ton Best, who was athletic officer of
the Marines last year, the soldiers of
the sea were accorded nothing but the
finest of everything. When they
played Camp Lewis at Pasadena during
the Tournament of Hones last New
Year's day they were quartered at the
Hotel Maryland, one of the finest tins
telries in the state of California. The
Marines hobnobbed with society and
brushed elbows with such distinguished
gentlemen as ex-Vice-President Fair
banks. Wrigley. of chewing-gum fame,
and a raft of other notables.
So, if Captain Lynn Coovert,who has
replaced Captain Best as athletic offi
cer, demands a little more than the
price of coffee-and. it is up to the
Camp Lewis people to "come tjugh"
and assist. If Camp Lewis does not
want to entertain the Marines It is
likely the Multnomah Club will take
them on Thanksgiving day. provided no
other game is scheduled for the local
field Turkey day.

"The general opinion anion; the wise
fans seems to be that both of these ex
alted champions failed to put up a real
fight, and only wasted their energy
and blows in a sort of fantastic fistic
fandango, and in my Judgment, they
are pretty near right.
There was altogether too much
fancy boxing at long range; too much
caution, lack of aggression and un
necessary, wild, useless blows, espe
cially for such supposed great masters
of the manlv art.

Design Is Pleasing One and Building
So Located on Lot as to Allow
Lawns Along Both Streets.
A crew of between 60 and 80 men will
assemble this morning at Fourth and
Stark streets to erect the cottage to
be used as headquarters for the Port
land Homes Company. An effort will
be made to complete the entire ex
terior and have the roof on today, so
that interior work may be done, re
gardless of weather conditions.
As with Liberty Temple, practically
everything entering into the Homes
Headquarters building has been do
nated. Material of all kinds is on the!
ground and carpenters have the foun
dation timbers in place.
The site at Fourth and Stark streets
was selected when John Clark offered
the use of his lot free of charge, and
affairs of the Portland Homes Com
pany will be carried on just a block
from the head offices of the Permanent
Placement Bureau? to be located in
the old Ainsworth National Bank build
ing at Third and Stark streets.
The design of the headquarters
building is a pleasing one. The
structure is to be so placed on the lot
that space will be available along the
streets for pretty landscape effects.
Offices for all departments of the
Housing Company are to be housed in
the first of Portland's 2000 new cot
tages, and the arrangement of the in
terior is such as to facilitate the
transaction of business in every way
Thirty-six firms of Portland and vi
cinity have contributed materials for
the cottage, including lumber, building
paper, cement and lime, mill work,
paint and painters, plaster board, line
tile, plumbing, brick, heating, hard
ware, tiling, electric wiring, fixtures,
sand, shingles and ornamental brick.
A large flag-pole and flag have
been donated, and all hauling and dray
age was contributed.
e The Portland Caterers Association
has arranged with restaurants in the
vicinity of Fourth and Stark streets to
serve luncheons for the men employed
in constructing the .building, each
worker being supplied with a ticket
that will entitle him to a 60-cent meal.

Proposal by the commercial bodies of
Oregon towns to form an Oregon Cham
ber of Commerce, formulated along the
same lines for this state as is the
United States Chamber of Commerce for
the Nation, now seems to be approach
ing realization. The Oregon Develop
ment Bureau, in which this correspon
dence has been handled, has addressed
i letter to all commercial organiza
ions upon the subject. It is suggested
that the state outside of Portland
should have approximately two-thirds
of the membership of the board of di
rectors, which would be approximately
the same as the proportion of electors
nf the state. It is also DrODosed that
the secretary of the development bu
reau might act as secretary of the
Chamber without salary, and the bureau
act as a clearing-house of information
for the state commercial body.
Secretary George Quayle, of the de
velopment bureau of the Portland
Chamber of Commerce, has asked for
expressions from each of the organi
zations as to their opinion of the move
ment, where and when a meeting should
be held to organize, and as to repre
sentations at the convention to form a
state Chamber. Asserting that this is
a time for unity, unselfishness and con
structive work, he urges that an early
meeting would be desirable.

Captain A. E. Aub. the new com

a strorfg booster for athletics, and
while he has not yet made any definite
announcement, it is known that he

is being done in all of the other big

Ten members of the "Brothers of Je

to have conspired to evade the draft
and to obstruct progress of military
operations of the United States, are
languishing in the Federal corridor of
the Multnomah County Jail today. They
were rounded up by the police yester
day at 3S3 Pine street, where they
had rooming quarters, and were turned
over to Federal authorities, who filed

William Freidllne, alleged to be the
leading "brother," takes the role of
preacher and adviser, according to his
colleagues, all of whom admitted they
had "got religion" while listening to
discourses by the would-be divine. He
was arrested several days ago on a
charge of being an idler, and was sen
tenced by Federal Judge Bean to 15
days in the Federal corridor of the
Multnomah County Jail. When that
sentence is served, Federal officers said
yesterday, he will be re-arrested on a
new complaint charging him with conspiracy.

Freldline has admitted he has been
delivering religious talks in Oregon for
number of years, and has been a
preacher for 12 years, in other states.
as well as this. This case against him.
it is understood, will be based largely
upon statements mad y other "broth
ers" who are held in the County Jail.
Lee Nelson, 40, a native of Kansas,
did not register in the draft, because
the religious belief he accepted in
Phoenix, Arizona, one year ago does
not permit of war. Ho said he had
heard Freidline talk and that his heart
had been opened.
Enoch Hansen, 34, a native of
Sweden, told a similar story. He ac
cepted religion four months ago, in ac
cordance with the teachings of Freid
line. John Wesslowski, 37, a native of
Germany, not only failed to register for
the draft, but did not register last year
as an enemy alien. Hi religious af
filiations date back only four weeks,
he said, and gave Freidline credit for
his conversion.
Objectors Held In Jail.
Alex Leske, 29, an Austrian, reg
istered in Livingston, Mont., he said,
but had destroyed his registration card
when he received word from Jesus to
do so. He is not a citizen.
Bernhard Elmer, 31, a native of
Switzerland, registered in Vancouver,
but destroyed his card, being actuated
by the same motive that prompted
Leske. P. O. Carlson, 31, a native of
Sweden, registered in Portland, and had
destroyed his card. He said he had
been crucified .by fasting four days,
and said .he was a follower of Freid
line. John Kerenchan, 33, a native of Aus
tria, did not register because of re
ligious beliefs. Ole Wick, 21, & native
of Norway, said he had only gone the
first lap on his fast, and had not yet
burned his registration card, though
he did not deny that such was his in
tention. J. O. Johnson and Gaston Scheen
make up the remainder of the religious
objectors who were quartered last
night in the County Jail.

William McCurry Indicted, Charged
With Assault on Robert
Phillips, Policeman.
A bit of melodrama was enacted he-
fore the Multnomah County grand Jury
Friday, when two women. Bertha
Brown and Sylvia Brown, learned for
the first time that they were sharing
the love of the same husband, Frank
O. Brown. When the womei. were in
formed by the grand jurors that both
had been duped by the fickle spouse,
they became frantic, and it was some
time before they were quieted.
A half hour after the two wives had
left the Courthouse, their alleged biga
mous husband was under arrest and
ndictment. He was taken into custody
by Deputy Sheriff Beckman. The in
dictment was one of several reported
yesterday to Presiding Judge Tucker.
William McCurry was indicted on
two counts, one of which charged an
assault on Robert Phillips, a police
man, and the other accusing him of
contributing to the delinquency of a
minor boy.
Three men who are alleged to have
taken automobiles without the owners'
consent were indicted under the spe
cial statute provided for that offense.
They are Nicholas Treauff, Anton
Belletich and Sanford Simpson.
James C. Dean, Earl Johnson and
Gordon Kirkpatrick were indicted for
the burglary of the home of A. H.
Wetby, Jr. They are also accused of
an attempted assault on Mr. Wethy.
G. Fletcher is charged with larceny
by bailee in the last open indictment
reported out yesterday. He is accused
of selling furniture which he was pur
chasing on the installment plan be
fore he had completed payment on it.
