At a meeting of th school boaid held
last night to prepare tho annual report
of that body severe 'rrjticism was
heaped upon the school survey commit
tee for failure to furnish the" member
of the. board with ' complete copies of
ulrvey report on the-Portland schools.
It was held that since the board had, not
received .official and omprete details
of the surveys work no definite dlpor
sit Ion could be made of It In the board's
report for the year. ' , " ' 1
Vever Receive Complete Beport. "
Judge M. O. Munley, as a. member of
the school -board, characterizes' the Atti
tude of the survey as discourteous. .''We
have never received a complete report
of the survey, committee's work," he
(.aid this morning:.'' despite our. requests.
IV e did receive a number - of proof
sheets, but they came irregularly, and
we never did reoelve-proofs- of all the
salleys set up.. We supposed we 'Would
' be the first to receive" roptes of the Te
port. In fact, the board trained lta first
idea of the contents of , the complete re
port from digests published In the daily,
papers, ' . " , , , , , , . i
"The board feelB that the survey jcom
mlttee should, .he responsible , to It.,, It
is true the taxpayers appropriated the
money for the work of the surVey, al
though legally the survey Is a commit
tee of the board." "We supposed that we
would at least receive a copy of the
completed report." . , . i .
"I wish to disclaim any conscious?
ness or Intention Of treating the school
board with less than entire courtesy,'
said Richard W.. Montague, chairman
of the survey committee this morning
"We sent proofs to the school, board
as soon aa we received them our
selves, V hv not , ent Prlnted
copies of the completed report as yet
for the . simple reason" .that! they have
not been printed- .. V -,t

"As soon as the report comes' (rora
the printer's copies-will ' be sent to
the board. At the, time we sent Kalley
proofs we advised .the board that the
first copies of the printed report would
go to their hands. Jn fact, we with
held the report from: the - newspapers
that -the board might- have an oppor
tunity to look over the- proofs. Mem

In the trial of John 7 Pender on the
charge of. having killed Mrs. .Daisy
Wehrman4 and thild . near Scappoose
September , 1911, Riley was recalled
to- the witness stand and" asked If he
had ; een. . John . Llndlof f . ,.at Scapbaos
September 10. and , had told him -that
his" trunk had been broken ;into. , He
said that he had seen Llndlofff -on the
evening of that day, but thought that
he did not tell him trunk Inci
dent. -
Special prosecutor Tongue then joad
from the record of the forme trial
portions of Riley's testimony at that
time for the purpose of-, showing .that
Riley had ' contradicted himself ad - to
the - trunk and revolver found In it
This was done ever' the objection of
the defense, who cialmett that there
was-no contradiction as to events but
simply as, to dates. .. To further " lm-peat-h
the , testimony of Riley ' the
state recalled -Sheriff Thompson,. .who
swore that h .saw Riley In Scappoose
September 10, and that Riley told him
that ' someone had broken into '-ills
trunk.: and asked hint' 1f' he did It.
Asked why he did not testify to- this
at the former trial the sheriff said
that he. was not asked relative to it.
In a, searching cross examination At
torney, Logan 'for the defense tried to
get the witness to admit that U might
have been September 17 that Riley noti
fied him about the trunk, but he did not
succeed. Deputy Sheriff Grant, also e-
called. testified that Riley notified htm
that his trunk had been opened Septem

How ha secured the , - remarkable
breed is thus told by Professor Dryden:
"When the poultry work was started
about six years ago the first problem
we took up was that of breeding. - If
the noultrv business ia to be a. profit
able business In the future,-and if the
consuming public Is to get' eggs ,an
prices that are not prohibitive, the lay
ing quality of the fowls must be better
developed. Two methods .have been
followed with thin purpose in view. ,

vidual. By this method of breeding wa
have got considerable gains la the flock.
We . have strains of Barred Plymouth
Rocks that this year average over 175
eggs to the hen. whereas with the orig
inal a took the best that was done was
100 eggs per ben. and the average nan
lays perhaps 70 eggs. ,- The same thing
is shown by results with another breed,
the White Leghorns, showing that It is
possible .to take tip any breed and by
proper selection of individuals, increase
very largely tha egg laying qualities.
. "The second method adopted was to
cross these two breeds , and from the
crosses' to select each year "the Individ

the same time having better meat qual
ities than tha Leghorns. It is from this
.method ,.wa. have got our remarkable
layers, crossing may not give tne aou
Ity to. lay. but It gives the stamina and
vigor to withstand heavy production.
Tbe final-purpose In the crossing Is to
establish. a new variety, of fowls that
will brejd reasonablytrue in high egg
laying. - . The farmers demand today a
fowl that In the first place is useful,
