WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. Announce
ment of arrival of the "soviet ark"
Buford at Hango, Finland, was made
tonight by the immigration bureau,
which issued a statement saying the
"deportees have been orderly and
obedient throughout the entire trip."
Reports that any of the deportees
have made statements for the press
were characterized as "without foun
dation." HAN'GO. Finland. Jan. 17. The 249
undesirable aliens deported from the
United States and brought here yes
terday by the United States army
transport Buford 'for trans-shipment
to Russia were Jaken off the trans
port today and marched to the special
train wflich will carry them to the
Russian frontier.
American marines and Finnish
white guards were drawn up as the
radicals proceeded from the ship to
their train. The party will be kept
completely isolated until the frontier
is reached.
I'nir Wont to Live In V. S.
Alexander Berkman and Emma
Goldman, who have been looked upon
as the leaders of the deportees, have
declared they will not remain in
Russia, but will "return to America
to save it."
After the Buford had been docked
Berkman and Miss Goldman led a pro
cession of radicals down the gang
plank. A large number of persons
had assembled on the wharf gazing
curiously at the landing. The reds
made up a motley throng, their faces
full of curiosity as to what their fu
ture might be, while there were traces
of anxiety lest they might be attacked
after they had left the protection of
their American guardians. Finnish
authorities will look after the safety
of the deportees.
After they had landed, Berkman and
Miss Goldman talked willingly with
newspaper men. Asked to give her
opinion of her deportation, the latter
"It was melodrama to keep it se
cret.'.' -
"It was unfair and stupid," inter
jected Berkman. "You can't kill an
idea like that. The czar tried and
failed. He is dead and forgotten."
"Do you want to overthrow the
American government?" Miss Gold
man was asked.
"You need f new government," she
answered, "and I hope the election
will provide it."
Asked what her plans were. Miss
Goldman said:
"I shall not impose my advice upon
the Russian government, but shall re
main affiliated with the bolsheviki.
I hold my deportation was an injus
tice. We were not given a chance to
prepare for it."
Berkman to Write Article.
Berkman is under contract to write
for an American monthly publication
a scries of articles 'about former
American prison wardens, among
them Thomas Mott Osborne. He will
write a number of Russian sketches,
he said. .
The bolsheviki on board led a
monotonous life, which was made
more irksome because of stormy
weather, when they could not be
given their daily exercise on deck.
After the Buford left Kiel, however,
" the weather cleared up and the de
portees were on deck for longeriods.
Their greatest pleasure seemed to be
singing "red" songs.

as 12,149 Carloads.
But slight improvement was shown
last week in the car situation, with
regard to the lumber business in Ore

by Robert B. Allen of Seattle, secre

Lumbermen's association. The car

Mr. Allen's summary of the situa.
tion follows: .
"Notwithstanding newspaper pub
licity inspired by the United States
railroad administration, the outlook
for cars In Oregon and Washington
continues discouraging. Efforts for
more definite relief and a tangible
future car supply will be continued
by the association, which is receiving
hearty co-operation on the part of the
state public service commissions of
Oregon and Washington.
"A recent statement by the manager
of the car service section. United
States railroad administration. Wash
ington, D. C alleging that car short
age in Oregon and Washington is due
to the Pacific northwest's having out
grown its trackage facilities, is no
borne out by facts. The state public
service commissions and traffic ex
perts find that the track facilities in
Oregon and Washington are not now

60 per cent.
"Luohber production in Oregon and
Washington since 1914 has . increased
27 per cent. One hundred and twenty
seven mills, participating in this
week's lumber barometer, show actual
production of 65.539,251 feet. Such a
production is J.1 per cent below
normal. New business taken on dur

Shipments for the week totaled
66,741.927 feet, of which 55,710.000
feet was loaded for rail delivery. The
balance of unshipped orders for trans

NEW YORK. Jan. 17. (Special.)
The teacher shortage has developed
into a national public school crisis
Teachers by the tens of thousands
have given up teaching.- Their po
sitions jire either remaining unfilled
or are being' taken by an increasing
number of poorly-prepared persons.
Normal and other training schools
cannot meet the demands. The num
ber of students attending is rapidly
Teaching has been unable to com
pete with business for the services of
high school graduates. The girls in
Increasing numbers are taking up 1
other than teacher-training courses.
Four hundred rural schools in West
Virginia are closed: 80 in Maine have
shut down "and unless something is
done to improve conditions, about 500
will not open their doors next fall. In
New' York state approximately 1000
rural communities, finding it impos
sible to secure teachers at the salaries
they are willing to pay, have closed
their school; the school master "is
working the land." but in workxther
than teaching.
Normal School Registration Drops.
The reason for tfce conditions con
fronting the schools is low salaries.
When the rural schools in Kansas are
paying an average wage, not salary,
of $436.64 to men teachers and " of
$431.01 .to women it is not surprising
to find the normal schools reporting
a register of only 3000 persons fitting
themselves this year to become teach
ers, as c&mpared with 6000 in 1916.
When out of 15,000 teachers in Mis
souri 2101 are being paid less than
$400 a year and 540 are being paid less
than $300 it is not to be wondered at
that more than 5000 of the teachers
have only an elementary education
Until there Is public realization of
the seriousness of the present situa
tion and public demand for better pay
for teachers and more liberal appro
priations for teacher-training Insti
tutions there will not be any sub
stantial increase in the supply of
Salary Increases Inadequate.
Reports gathered by the National
Educational association from 1700
school superintendents who supervise
23S.573 teaching positions show
present shortage of 14.689 teachers, or
more than 6 per cent of their teach
ing positions. This shortage would
have been greater had proper stand
ards for' teachers been maintained,
but the superintendents declare that
they are employing 23,006 teachers
below standard. This is almost 10 per
cent of their entire teaching staffs.
During the year more than 22 per
cent or 52,79$ teachers gave up their
positions. . '
Some attempts have been made to
meet the alarming situation by grant
ng increases In salaries, but gener
lly these increases have not been
ommensurate with the increase in
cost of living.
Missouri has raised the pay of its
rural teachers 10.9 per cent since 1915,
but the average salary that yeaf was
only $329.16. Kansas reports an in
crease of 12 per cent In teachers' sal
aries In three years and the state
authorities put at 100 per cent the
ncrease in cost of living in that state.
Conditions Concern All. J
These conditions are of concern not
only to the people (of the communities
most seriously affected, but also to
those In other communities. There
must be insistence upon the main
tenance of high professional stand
ards and public support for higher
salaries for better prepared teachers.
Finally, more liberal state appro
priations must be granted to normal
schools and other teacher-training Institutions.
Until there is nation-wide recogni
tion by the public of the importance
of the teaching profession there will
not be recognition of the importance
of teaching as a profession by at
tracting the best material the high
schools of the country are turning out.

to be made public.

they could be fought most effectively

shoes, clothing and money to pay
their troops. .
"We are In default as to Russia:
the American people are In default."
Mr.' Root said. "We have given, as
surance of friendship to Russia; we
have made promises; we (have used
the strongest words in the English
language. We have Indicated that
there was no limit t6 the friendship
which we were ready, to show toward
Russia, and we have shown no friend
ship toward Russia except in words.
Opportunities Pauril Up.
.Many opportunities have come
and have been allowed to pass. Many
situations have arisen in Russia,
where, if the American people had
made good one tenth of what they
declared they were ready to do, .the
skies would be bright in Russia to
day. They have been allowed to pass
without action.
"Now is the time to lay the foun
dations, to take the first steps to
establish the relations necessary for
the friendly and useful Intercourse
of trade between the United States
and Russia," Mr. Root explained. He
said other nations were doing this,
especially Japan and Canada.
Kussla Needs I. S. Help.
Russia is the place for Americans
to fight and destroy bolshevism, he
said, adding that America should put
"strength and heartiness and courage
and hope and prosperity into the peo
ple of Russia who are ready them
selves to destroy bolshevism.
"Long before the expiration of the
period in which any of these nations

LEAVENWORTH. Kan., "Jan. 17.
Doubt of the right of a federal Judge
to cause an investigation of army
administrative affairs was expressed
tonight by Malor-General James Mc

barracks at Fort Leavenworth. Gen

Attorney Robertson to investigate
situation brought out in testimony
at the trial of 11 men charged with
conspiracy to Issue and pass fraudu

The testimony, the court said, was

Pollock, I Intend to take the matter
up with Secretary of War Baker be

NEW YORK, Jan. 17. A prediction
that the institution of 'private prop
erty never would be permanently or
even long overthrown by socialistic
programmes was made at the meet
ing of the New York State Bar asso
ciation today by Nicholas Murray
Butler, president of Columbia univer
sity and a candidate for the republic
an nomination for president.
"To carry out the full socialist pro
gramme as to property is quite Im
practicable," he said. "Even if that
programme rested on a sound, in
stead of a false basis of theory,
private property may be temporarily
endangered or destroyed, as for ex
ample by the turbulent . terrorism
which now holds the Russian people
in Its grip, but the Instinct of prog
ress is too deeply rooted In the hu
man race, and it has made too much
advance to permit the institution of
private property to be permanently,
or even long, overthrown." .
Dr. Butler added, however, that un
less American fundamental legal prin
ciples should be developed to solve
manifold economic problems, a violent
war between law and economic .in
terests was certain. -
"The theory of the hired man must
go." he added, "and affection for the
Job must be developed." Such a condi
tion, he said, would inaugurate a new
industrial era.
"There will be no wage slavery
possible." he added, "when a skilled
workman is consulted as to the terms
of his own co-operation and when the
hours and conditions of his labor, as
well as its rewards, are settled on
the assumption that be is a human
being and not a mere piece of goods
producing machinery."
Unions Prefer to Wait Return to
Private Ownership.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. Railroad

A canvass of the general situation
was said to show a sentiment-among
the union membership to await the
return of the roads to their owners
before submitting demands for revi
sion of wage contracts.
