FRED MORRIS FILES
DEMURRER TO TV0
Fred S. Morris, founder of the de
funct house of Morris Brothers, Inc..
Thursday filed demurrer in the
circuit court to two indictments
in which he la charged with larceny
by embezzlement. He set up .many
technical objections to the form and
scope of the indictments.
Judge Kavanautth ordered attorneys
to appear next Thursday at 2 p. m.
for arguments on the demurrer.
This demurrer was filed immediately
after Etherldge and Mrs. Ktheridge had
appeared for arraignment on other in
dictments figuring' in the collapse of the
bond house. , They were given until
next Tuesday at 2 p. m. to enter their
'. pleas. Forbes R. Pratt, another asso
ciate of the bond house at the time of
its collapse, who was. arxvgned earlier
In the day, was given until Tuesday at
the .same hour to plead.
Morris alleges in his demurrer that
the language of the indictment is not
clear, that the. officers of the business
house are not properly listed, that the
time and place of the alleged crimes are
'not- specifically designated, and that
mere than one crime is charged in the
The first charge against Morris, "on
which he Is indicted jointly with Pratt
and Ktheridge, Is that the three voted
ta Morris $25,000 worth of shares of
the Rogne 'River Water company for a
consideration of $1. The second charge
is that Ktheridge withdrew $100,090 of
Morris Bros. ; funds from a Portland
bank and deposited it in the name of
Mra1 Etheridge in the Forest Grove Na
tional bank, which he drew upon to pay
Morris as Morris' share of the business
at . the time Morris withdraw and Kth
eridge took charge.
Legion Asks That
City Plans Specify
Work by Americans
Passage of an ordinance by, the city
council requiring all contractors on city
work to give American citizens prefer
ence over aliens, and making this re
quirement a condition and part of each
contract awarded, is requested by the
American Legion unemployment com
mittee In a communication sent to Mayor
Baker and the city commissioners. It
is understood the matter will be given
consideration by the council at a special
. meeting to be held Friday afternoon.
In this' communication the committee
"Investigations made by this commit
tee disclose the fact that certain street
end sewer contractors in Portland are
hiring alien labor in preference to ex
service men and other loyal American
family men on work paid for by .Port
land citizens. In fact it has been brought
to our attention that scores' of aliens
have enjoyed regular employment on
these contracts to the exclusion of Amer
ican citizens at a time when the Ameri
cans and their families were actually
Buffering for the necessities of life.
"Now. it is not the desire of this com
mittee that aliens suffer, but we do feel
that inasmuch as these aliens show by
their actions that they prefer' to con
tinue their allegiance to their native
land, that in times of stress they should
seek employment of the government to
which they remain loyal, and that they
be compelled to make way in America
for loyal Americans certainly while
those loyal Americans are in need of
the work taken by aliene.
motion pictures in which Clara Hamon

Characterizing the proposed filming of
the life Vry of the slayer of Jake Ha
mon, millionaire Oklahoma oil magnate,
as "the black drama of the notoriety of a
soiled woman, the league adopted reso
lutions binding its membershin "to keeo
this film product frem our doors.
"This woman sold her womanhood, and
believing that she Is not actuated by a
desire, through pictorial ' and dramatic
art, to help other girls, but rather that
there is a lack of hesitancy about com
mercializing: her shame, the league places
itself on record to keep this class of film
from the state of Oregon, says the reso
lution. - 1 - !
That the motion picture industry has
been harrassed and embarrassed at fre

films capitalizing the morbid public curi
osity, is a . statement contained in the

Corn Doctor, Not
Bootlegger , Cures
Corns, Says Rossman
Bill Aldrich suffered from "exagger
ated" bunions. . A- bottle of moonshine
found in his possession by Patrolmen
Nutter and Harms was used exclusively
as af bunion cure.' That was the only
thing he kept the moonshine for. A few
drinks relieved the pain. So Aldrich tes
tified Thursday. f
"Well," said Municipal Judge Ross
man, after hearing of the novel cure.
"I'm glad you haven't got coma. too.
Corn whiskey may be all right for bun
Ions but I'll let you go with a $5 fine
this lime.' If they get to hurting again,
go to a corn doctor, not a bootlegger."

mons company of. San Francisco by As
sistant United States Attorney Maguire,

club furnished a musical program of
D. A. Grout, city superintendent of

school, was the principal speaker. He
spoke in a general way of the great
influence the school plays in the life of
the student- In part he said : 'The
Polytechnic school appeals to a dif
ferent kind of a boy than the one who
wants to study Latin and foreign lan
guage and develops both the hand and
the head of the student taking a course
in that way preparing him to take up
an occupation on leaving.
Following the luncheon, the members
of the ' Business Men's club were con
ducted through the Bchool and shown
the Interesting features. During the
luncheon It was announced that there
