and to escape it the Teutonic forces
had withdrawn into the Belgian in

Litem of control along the coast
constituted a serious handicap to
them, however, since the sea had pre

against a flanking movement by the
allies in that quarter. With a belt
of unoccupied territory between the
extremity of their line and salt water,
however, the envelopment of their

Whether such a movement would
be attempted appeared to depend on

Thus, whilo the Germans accepted

which the allies could not take ad

By Dock Commission
Prevailing pay for Installing Sprink

93.S0 a Day.
The prevailing wage for installation
of sprinkler fire prevention " systems
is. $3.50 a day, according to a decision
reached this morning by the dock
commission In executive session. The
sprinkler company holding subcon
tract for installation of a sprinkler
system on the west side public dock
was paying $3.50 a day and waa asked
by Steam and Sprinkler Fitters local
235 to pay $6 a day, the wage of steam
fitters.
The dock commission was asked to
define the prevailing wage. Its de
cision was based on these facts: That
$3.50 was paid for previous public
dock installation; that the sprinkler
company pays $3.50 a day on most or
its contracts throughout the country,
and that more than half of the instal
lations in Portland nave heen on a
