TACOMA, "Wash., June 17. (Spe

Astoria, chaplain of Oregon troops
in the Philippines, on the Mexican
border and in France, and second
tate commander of the American
Legion In Oregon, would set rj the

Chaplain Gilbert went before a
board of officers last night to un
d&rg-o his examination for perma
sent commission, as required of all
guard officers under a new war de
partment ruling. He was asked a
tew perfunctory questions and then
Colonel C. E. Dentler, chairman of
the board, asked him his length of
ervice in the Oregon guard.
"Twenty-five years, sir," proudly
replied the chaplain. .
"H-ml" the colonel scratched his
bead "seems to me I saw some rul
ing about length of service of chap-
lalnns in the new regulations. Let
me look It up."
He pored over the pages of a large
rwue dook. Finally he speared a
paragraph with his Index finger and
"Here it is! Major Gilbert, you
enouid he a lieutenant-colonel.

Taken Off Burning Launch. ' .
LOS ANGELES, CaL, June 17.
Captain William S. Miller, comman
dant of the naval submarine base
here, and four seamen , were res
cued today when the naval launch
In which they were riding caught
fire, was burned to the water's edge
and sank in the outer harbor. E. R.
Stevens, one 1 of the seamen," was
burned seriously. Discovery of the
fire soon after its inception, by of
ficers on -one of the warships here,
and speedy dispatch of a motorboat
to the scene, effected the rescue.
Captain Miller and the three other
seamen, supporting Stevens, clus
tered -on the bow of the burning
craft and coolly awaited rescue. The
flames were believed to have origi
nated from the backfire of the en
gine igniting gasoline in the car
buretor. A slight explosion followed
and the flames spread rapidly.

DAYTON, Or.. June 17. (Special.)
Dayton high school closed a busy
week of commencement events last
night in the opera-house with the
graduation exercises for the 15th
class,, and incidentally the largest
class in the scnoul's history. The
baccalaureate address last Sunday
night by President Pennington of
Pacifio college was followed by the
annual high school picnio at the
government locks on Wednesday,
class night exercises In, the opera
house Thursday and the commence
ment' exercises last night.
The graduation address was de
livered by Professor Edwin T. Reed
of the Oregon Agricultural college,
who presented his subject, "The Ris
ing Generation." In the absence of
Mrsr H. G. Coburn on account of
sickness, the mpiomas were pre
sented by L. H. Rossner, another
member of the school board.
Several characteristics make last

Farmers' Council Director
CONFERENCE IS CALLED
Candidates to Run Against Sen-
Polndexter and Four ,
PUGET SOUND BUREAU, Seattle.
Wash., June TL Ben Marsh, director
of the farmers legislative council
and a prominent figure In the third
party movement, of 1924), lanced in
the state of Washington a few days
ago for the express purpose of per
fecting arrangements for the defeat
of Senator Miles Folndexter and at
least four of Washington's five pres
ent representatives In congress. Mr.
Marsh wishes especially to defeat
John F. Miller of the 1st district, Lin
H. Hadley of the Sid, Albert Johnson
of the 14 and J. Stanley Webster of
the 5th. He would like to see a
clean sweep made by Including John
W. Summers of the 4th district, but
he Is not so eager for Summers'
scalp as he is for the others.
Conference Is Called.
In making his arrangements for
this large undertaking Mr. Marsh
has been arguing and dealing with
members of the non-partisan league,
of the 1920 farmer-labor party,, of
William Bouck's so-called progres
sive grange (not the regular state
grange), and of the committee of
48. He has also talked long and
earnestly with officers of the state
federation of labor and the railway
men's political club. The results of
his efforts are Vindicated in a call
for a general conference presumably'
to be representative of all Interested
elements. This conference will be
held in Seattle at 10 o'clock tomor
The first and perhaps most Im
portant result expected from this
conference is a declaration in favor
of some one candidate to oppose
Senator Poindexter in the repub
lican primaries next September.
Whether the conference will indicate
preferences in opposition to the in
cumbent members of the lower
house is regarded as uncertain.
These selections, it is said, are more
likely to be referred to conferences
in the several congressional dis
Hope Pat Im Primaries.
Mr. Marsh has succeeded in con
vincing a number of those who have
listened to him that the only chance
of defeating Senator Poindexter and
the four representatives lies in vot
ing In the republican party pri
maries. He has strongly advised
against a third party ticket. He
points to the fact that the farmer
labor party has never yet held a
primary election In this state, and
for this reason he argues, thrft there
will be no breach of political faltn
in voting In the republican pri- i
marles. His plan is either to give I
united support to "satisfactory re
publicans, or to get persons to me
as candidates who are willing to
pose as republicans for the duration
of the campaign.
Candidates Are Invited.
Men and at least one woman
who have indicated a willingness to
run against Poindexter, or whose
names have come into discussion of
the senatorial primary, have been
Invited to attend me Sunday con
ference. Among those of this class
expected to be present are Mrs.
Frances C. Axtell of Bellingham,
Colonel George B. Lamping and
John E. Ballaine of Seattle." W. H.
Paulhamus of Sumner may attend.
unless meanwhile he should have
reached a definite decision to with
draw in favor of Colonel Lamping.
Judge Austin E. Griffiths, who be
lieves h has many friends la or
ganized labor and among the farm
ers of the state, will not take part
In the conference. He saye he will
continue as a candidate regardless
of what the conferees may do.
Clark V. Savtdge, state land com
missioner, whose - name came Into
the senatorial contest gossip last
week, has been subjected to a "feel
ing-out" process to ascertain If he
would be Interested in what Mr.
Marsh, proposes shall be done. Mr.
Savidge is said to have settled the
matter by the simple statement that
he was not a candidate and would
Mr. Ballaine Ready to Quit.
John E- Ballaine, who was first to
take the field as an avowed candi
date against Senator Poindexter. is
now willing to abandon the contest
if his friends are not too Insistent
that he should keep on running.
It has just become known that Mr.
Ballaine was stricken with acute
appendicitis within a fortnight after
announcing his candidacy. He sub
mitted to an immediate operation,
and Is now about again, feeling, as
he says, as f it as ever. Meanwhile.
however, his campaign plans have
had to be neglected. Judge Griffiths
has come into the game, and Colonel
Lamping has pushed to the front.
There is more matter for considera
tion now than there was at the
time Mr. Ballaine made his an
nouncement He is still willing to
go if his friends Insist on it; but he
is equally willing to stand aside If
agreement can be reached on some
one candidate who merits his aP'
proval and support.
. Two Hold Conferences.
Colonel Laniping and Mr. Paul
hamus have .been talking things
over very earnestly for the last two
or three days Just before the re
publican state convention in Che
halis Colonel Lamping wrote Mr.
Paulhamus urging him to run for
the senatorial nomination and prof
fering his support. The recent col-
loqulea between the two men have
been for the purpose of helping Mr.
Paulhamus to make a final decision.
It is now Baid that he has decided
not to run. In whioh case he can do
no less than to make a reciprocal
proffer of support to Colonel Lamp
ing. Probably this has already been
made; and it is more than probable
that Lamping would also be accept
able to Ballaine.
Aside from the matter of selecting
a senatorial candidate, as to which
there may be some hitch in the Sun
day conference, a'-majority of the
conferees is expected to indorse Mr.
Marsh's plan for general participa
tion in the republican primaries.
