"Reed College Faculty Man, a
: Republican, Tells Why He Will
Support Democratic Nominee.
Professor' Frank X. Griffin of
) 'Reed college, an ardent Republican,
announced Saturday that he would
- vote for Cox and Roosevelt. He la
switching on the League of Nations
issue, because Harding' is reactlon
J ary and Cox progressive, and be
cause, he says, "the interests of the
average citizen would best be con
served by electing Cox."
1 'The League of Nations offers the one
structlve toward ending war." Professor
. Griffin explains. "The league la a going
concern; we cannot, expect 43 other na-
tlons to abandon it and try to devise
. 'some new 'association'. Senator Hard
. j ' ing is a self-declared i enemy of the
league. Governor Cox is its friend ; so
. am I. Hence I am supporting Cox.
PROBLEMS TO BE SOLVED
"In the next few years, difficult in
dustrial problems must be solved. Wlde-
unread labor troubles are likely to occur.
' It In fundamentally Important that these
matters be handled in an enlightened,
progressive way. Forcible suppression
- of legitimate activities, such as occurred
": : In the late steel strike, Is a short-sighted
v policy which drives fair-minded work
n - Inpnen Into the hands of radical agri-
' tators. Governor Cox stands for law
3 ;. and order, and once removed the Demo-
ficratlc mayor of a. large city to ensure
1 it But his philosophy is one of con-
s clliation, rather than force, and he has
i a notable record for the peaceable and
.'. J Just settlement of labor troubles. Senator
: Harding's attitude is a matter of con
i i Jecture. but some of his most powerful
I backers are adherents of the old policy
1 of ruthless suppression. I deem it safer
, for the country to elect Cox.
) UARtflNGfJ RECORD AKALTZED
"Much reconstruction legislation is yet
' to be passed. Senator Harding's past
' votes and speeches do not indicate that
he is Interested In the movements of the
' ; last decade or two looking toward social
'i j amelioration and the elimination of eco-
- nomlc injustice.. In other words, he is
T ; not known as a progressive leader. His
t attitude toward the late Theodore Roose
velt bears out this Assertion. Governor
y-;. Cox, on the other hand, has a record
i, of progressive achievement. Apparently
'';' the interests of the average citizen
i '; would be conserved by electing Cox."

Mrs. Weber Meets
Senator Huston in
Before a capacity audience, Louise
Palmer Weber and Senator S. B. Hus
ton debated the League of Nations ques
tion Saturday night in the assembly
room of the Portland hotel.
Mrs. Weber, upholding the league, won
an emphatic applause. Senator Hus
ton delivered a fervent arraignment of
the league. He declared he was cer
tain he would meet with a unanimity
of opinion among the audience, and
even with Mrs. Weber, in stating that
the league question was the greatest
that faced the American people since
the drafting of the Declaration of In
dependence. Mrs. Weber shattered the "six votes
to one" claim when she called attention
to the fact that such a situation could
arise only In the advisory council and
not In the league itself, where all had
When Senator Huston painted a
dread picture of the danger of Oriental
invasion of America, the audience
cheered Mrs. Weber's reply that it

States to be a member of the league,

heat The three months clause before
actual warfare might allow it to cool

counts of other customers. Bail was
fixed at $250 and in lieu of this she was
taken to the county jail.
How extensive the alleged operations
of Mrs. Hudson may have been has not
yet been determined, but Watkins said
more than 500 worth of goods were re

disappointments and still win the elec

Eastern Oregon Is

Eastern Oregon communities, which

by Nathan Strauss, chairman of the
excursion, and E. N. Weinbaum, secre
tary. Typical of some of the other letters
received is one from S. H. Clay, secre
tary of the commercial club at Ontario,
which says :
"Let me say on behalf of Ontario and
her good business men that without ex
ception we, one and all, thoroughly en
joyed your short visit with us, and our
only regret is that you were not.able
to stay with us longer.

expect to see at least $5 grow where one

Growers Exchange, which is the orange
marketing organization, the Walnut

Associated Raisin company and the
Peach Growers' association, are all
typical of the wonderful work that
is being done in that state. For
example, when the peach growers
organized, peacheiTwere worth less than
2 cents a pound. This year, 24.000 tons
of peaches were sold for over $8,000,000

"These statewide marketing organisa
tions in California have standardized
the product and have greatly reduced

only cost IJ cents per box, are examples
of unequaled efficiency in marketing.

brought thousands of settlers to the

cultural values and has resulted In the
development of unimproved land. It has
driven the speculator from the fruit bas

stabilised California horticulture, and its
wonderful work has brought the recog

support of you by J0.0OO women in Cali
fornia who stand for immediate ratifi
cation of the league and treaty Impos
sible. It is useless to discuss some fu
ture concert of nations. The League of
Nations is a fact. It is composed of
practically all the civilised nations of
the world. It Is functioning and accom

treaty will never be abandoned- by the
nations of the world and no separate
peace with Germany will be tolerated
by the people of the United States.
The second telegram is as follows :
Before the nominating convention we
worked for the ratification of the peace
treaty. Until now we have kept out bf
the campaign, but your recont speeches

party lines. If we are in error in our
interpretation, we would appreciate
hearing from you.

79 Per Cent of Men
Paroled Make Good
Seventy-nine per cent of the men pa
roled from the Oregon state penitentiary
by Governor Olcott are making good in
private life, according to a report made
by Percy M. Varney, state parolefflcer.
