MAYOR BAKER FOR ACTION
President Gray of Tnlon Pacific
Says Plans Are Crystallizing
Rapidly for Improvement.
Portland's great union railroad ter
minal project, estimated to run close
to 11.000,000 in cost of construction,
may be under way much sooner than
had been anticipated up to last night,
when Carl R. Gray, president of the
Union Pacific here on an inspection
trip with Judge Robert S. Lovett,
chairman of the executive committee
of the system, made the announce
ment that he believed the executives
concerned could arrange to submit
their application for street vacations
to the city council within 30 days.
Whether or not the big project goes
forward this summer or is to await
action by the people or members of
the city council at a later date. Is the
question that loomed large until Mr.
Mr. Gray, In an Interview early In
the evening, said the railroad execu
tives are getting along all right with
the terminal project plans, but there
seemed to be some question as to- ob
taining street vacations, which are
absolutely essential to the plans.
Tote of People Desired.
It had been said that the members
of the council wished a vote of the
people on any street vacations sought
by the railroads for the terminal and
that some of the members would
not vote the vacations under provi
sions of the so-called Kubli act,
passed by the legislature at its last
session. That the council had decided
not to submit any measures to the
people at the coming election In June,
because of the expense, also had been
With the situation In this apparent
indefinite form, Mayor Baker received
an outline of the case, and It was
then that the subject began to
"I cannot speak for my colleagues
on. the council," said Mayor Baker,
"but for myself I will eay that, no
matter what attitude has been taken
heretofore regarding the submission
of measures to the people next June,
If the railroad companies will apply
for street vacations within two weeks,
or such a matter, so that the council
may give the subject due considera
tion in time, I will call a special ses
sion and we shall determine what
Special Election Suggested.
"The fact that the council decided
during the week not to submit certain
measures that bad been talked about,
to the people, has nothing whatever
to do with a matter so vital to Port
land as this terminal project.' It
would be sheer folly for us to with
hold consideration of that subject for
the sake ef caving a few thousand
dollars, should the railroads announce
they are ready to proceed and do it
soon enough to afford us opportunity
for a full consideration of their pro
posals. I am making no promises,
neither am I, in the slightest degree,
pledging myself to anything except to
act for the best good of the city, and
to do It at once, if necessary, to have
this big terminal project go forward.
' Mayor Baker's message was relayed
to Mr. Gray at his suite in the Hotel
Portland and he at once said that he
believed "the point made by the
mayor could be safeguarded," mean-

Government Expected to Publish
List of All Offenders and
Round-ITp Will Follow.
SALEM, Or.. March 2(3. (Special.)
Preliminary rumbles of an Impending
slacker roundup have been heard at
the adjutant-general's office here, it
was learned today on inquiry as to
the compilation of Oregon's slacker
list. It was stated by Adjutant-General
White that he confidently ex
pected to see the publication of the
whole list by the government, at no
remote date. A roundup of the of
fenders will follow.
Telegraphic and letter requests of
the adjutant-general ,that he be au
thorized to cause the arrest of known
draft-dodgers were disapproved by
the government. It was learned, and
he was asked to refer all names to
Washington, D. C.
"Inasmuch as the government cred
its the delay to the long process of
checking every name against all the
army and navy records In order to
avoid errors, I think the delay Is jus
tified if there are no other reasons,"
said General White. "We have tele
graphed the names of more than 60
Oregon soldiers found In error on the
"In the meantime, the government
has not been altogether idle. An Ore
gon slacker got his just deserts a
short time ago. I would be breaking
faith at this time to give out his
name, but he belongs to an otherwise
honoraole pioneer family. Be plead
ed Ignorance of the draft law, but a
military court at Vancouver barracks
gave him 10 years at hard labor. This
was reduced to 18 months by the
headquarters at San Francisco, and

WA4JHINUTON. i. C, March 26.
(Special.) The republican leaders are
mobilizing to get things done at the
coming session of congress. They
need to. They' know that the ex
pectations which the country has of
them are enormous; to some of the
more cautious republican leaders the
country's expectations are almost ter
rifying. The country almost expects
the new administration to make
The expectations are largely inher
ent in the situation, but to agree
they are based on the promises and
implications of promises, which the
republicans made during the cam
paign last summer, as one of the
republican leaders expressed it after
he had spent several days studying
the government's financial situation
and the country's business situation:
"We have promised to solve the in
Recent Cbngreae Disappoints.
Not only are the republican lead
ers apprehensive about the things
the country expects them to. do In the
coming session. In addition they are
uncomfortably conscious of having
made a poor record In the recent ses
sion. To be sure, so far as the recent
session. Is concerned, the republicans
have an alibi, which they 'rely -.on
rather too much in the fact that they
did not then control the presidency.
While they controlled the house and
the senate, the democratic president
was able to veto anything they did.
But the eerious faults of the recent
session were not of a character that
can be blamed on President Wilson's
vetoes. It is true some of these vetoes
were unjustifiable. After an Immi
gration bill had been passed In the
Senate by a majority of 31 to 1 and
had been passed In the house by a
vote of 7. to 1, It was discouraging to
have all that work go for nothing be
cause the president allowed the bill
to lie on his desk and thereby, In ef
fect, vetoed It. But the sufficient
answer to this is that the republican
house and senate ought to have passed
the bill before the last 10 days of the
session. If they had done that, they
would then have had time to repass
the bill over the president's veto.
' Unpardonable Delays Charged.
Moreover, there were serious defects
in the work of the recent session
which had nothing , whatever to do
with Mr. Wilson's vetoes. The recent
session did not even pass all the ap
propriation bills which Mr. Harding
had begged them to pass In order to
have the ground clear for the new
The truth 1s that In the recent ses
sion there was unpardonable dila
toriness. Having their majority ef 2t, the
republican leaders are now getting
ready to achieve compactness ' and
speed. They have reorganized their
steering committee. This is not an
official committee of tbe senate, but
really a committee of the republ'can
party. It will be responsible for the
programme. It will fix the order in
which legislation shall come up, and
it will be responsible for the speed

OREGON TRAIL ON LIST
Highway Programme Xot Definite
ly Outlined by State Commis
sion Yet, However. "
SALEM, Or., March 26. (Special.)
Oregon's road-building programme
for the present year, although not yet
definitely outlined by the state high
way commission, will entail expendi
tures aggregating at least $12,000,000.
This was made known here today
by Roy E. Klein, secretary of the
commission, In a report including con
tracts already awarded, projects ad
vertised for which bids will be
received on April 5 and projects car
ried over from last year.
During the period January 1 to
March 9, 1921, the highway commis
sion awarded contracts for road im
provement and bridges aggregating
a cost of 33,135,200.
Grading; Work Included.
These contracts Include 27.3 miles
of grading, 38 miles of macadam, 64.6
miles of paving and 14 bridges.
Projects advertised, and for which
bids will be opened by the commis
sion in Portland on April 5, Include
improvements estimated to cost
$1,900,000. These projects were sum
marized as follow: 78.9 miles of grad
ing, 34.7 miles of macadam, 39.2 miles
of paving and four bridges.
Projects under contract carried over
from last year which will be com
pleted during the coming summer in
clude 182.6 miles of grading, 198.2
miles of macadam, 89.2 miles of pav
ing and ten bridges.
Coat Pat at 93,228,230.
The cost of these improvements,
under the terms of the contracts. Is
In addition to these Improvements,
which Mr. Klein has estimated will
cost (10.264,450, be anticipated in his
report that the total sum to be ex
pended on roads during the present
year will be almost double that
amount. These additional expendi
tures, he said, would result from
county highway activities carried
forth on a 60-60 basis.
Co-operation on the part of counties
other than those located on the route
of the Pacific and Columbia river
highways, he averred, would be
necessary In case1 the proposed- road
improvement campaign . is to be
carried on most effectively.
Oregon Trail 'Work Slated.
Probably the most Important road
activity this year will be the com
pletion of the grading of the , old
Oregon trail from Pendleton through
.. This work will cover 190 miles.
Other larger projects proposed this
season include extensive work on The
Dalles-California highway between
Madraa and The Dalles, and placing
under construction a large part of
the Roseburg-Coos Bay highway.
The latter project includes a section
of road between Coquille and Bandon,
Coos county, also the paving of 75
miles of the Pacific highway, with
the understanding that unfinished
sections will be completed in the
Conntiea May Vote Bonds.
Reports reaching the commission,
according to Mr. Klein, Indicated that
at least three counties will authorize
bonds at the special election in June
with which to co-operate with the
highway commission. These include

SPIRIT OF CHARITY HIGH
Pre-Drive Subscriptions Are
Forerunner of Success.

broke loose yesterday, two days be
fore the scheduled opening, and $73,'
700 in unsolicited subscriptions. In
generous sized checks from business
firms, financiers and others rolled In
by the time a check of the day's
work was made.
The flood of funds from big sub
scribers brought rejoicing at head
quarters at the old postoffice block,
where It was taken as an Indication
that the drive had started with a
flourish that would carry It over
without a strain on Portland's rec
ord in generous and whole-hearted
While a flying squadron was being
organized by Mayor Baker to go after
the business firms early Monday
morning, the heads of the firms and
others came forward unsolicited with
donations that have assured the
workers that all are behind them and
that equally large subscriptions are
awaiting the call of the solicitors
throughout the city.
Success of Drive Forecast.
With renewed confidence of 100 per
cent success for the drive, the army
of workers Is preparing to move into
the field at the break of day, tomor
row, to procure the quota of 3850,000
necessary to meet the charity needs
o: the city during the year. No op
position to the chest plan has de
veloped so far as large donors are
concerned, and It Is expected that
the same spirit will be met with
wherever the workers go.
The big subscriptions began to pour
in Friday and all day yesterday addi
tional large subscribers called at chest
headquarters or telephoned for blanks
on which to make out their pledges.

hands of the committee last night re
