HEATED ROW
At One Stage of School Board
Hearing Rev. C. T. Wilson Is
Called Coward; Ministers Ac
cused of Slandering Students.
Pandemonium ruled Thursday night
at the Lincoln high school auditorium
when preacher, teachers, social work-
era. parents, students and School board
directors mingled In forensic free-for-all
over the question of dancing In the
publle schools.
The petitioning pastors ara fighting
to have the dance eliminated from the
schools; Parent-Teacher associations be
lieve tha dance la a healthful socialising
activity which young people require.
Tha Issue became sharp'y defined, with
tha board members as umpires.
It 'was the most disorderly meeting
held before tha board for many yeara
Chairman A. C Newtll'a ruling against
demonstrations of any sort waa disre
garded. Some score or more persons
joined the debate.
Concrete evidence to show why danc
ing should not be tolerated in school
hutldlnjra waa turned to reneral argu
ments when the ministers refused to
state names, dates and places.
mct rim EVIDENCE ,
Such evidence as the ministers did
produce waa questioned, from many
. sources and tha meeting became a wild
verbal fracas In which characters of
sainted mother who danced were com
pared with ' sainted mothers who didn't
danca, and ., the morality' of mlnlstera'
families was compared with ordinary
folks moralities. Direct Insults by the
ministers were charged, and In on In
stance, a speaker suggested that the
district attorney" a office be, 'consulted
to ascertain If they might not be prose
cuted for slander. ,
After three hours tha meeting was
adjourned. The mlnlstera were In
structed to place their evidence, to
gether with actual names. In tha hands

John Grant. . i head miller for the
Crown mills, was Instantly killed short
ly after noon today when he waa run
over by freight cars at Front and North-
rup streets.
A sudden movement of the care while
h waa crossing the tracks caught hhn

trucks and dragged nearly 40 feet His
legs, arms and back were crushed and
ha died bfore the ambulance arrived.
Grant leavea a wife. They lived at 234
East Broadway.
Police Motorcycleman Scott, who waa

the cars that struck Grant, cried out a
warning which was evidently not heard.
Deputy Coroner Leo Goetseh took
charge of the body. He said he would
confer with his chief before announcing
an inquest, aa the question of criminal
negligence may be raised. The accident
happened within the yards of the North-
em Pacific Terminal company, the track
crossing Front street at an agle. It ap
peared that two cars had been "kicked'
by a switch engine. Investigation is be
ing made of whether this constitutes

BENEDICT XV, sovereign pontiff 'of the Roman Catholic church, who is dying in the Vatican.
Benedict became pope in 1914, soon after the outbreak of the great war, and will be remem

Washington. Jan. 2d. (I. N. 8.) A
last ditch fght against starvation
wagaa has been determined upon by or
ganised miners, now masalnr their
ranks for a nation-wide strike April 1
It waa learned today.
Tha miners will first demand a t to 10
per cent wage increase to be effective
April 1. when existing contracts expire.
their leaders said today. Rejection of
tha demanda by operators will precipi
tate a strike of such proportions as (o
paralyse the est ire coal Industry.
There will be no compromise either a
wsve Increase or a strike.
War plana for the miners will be
adoptad al an International convention
ta ba held by the United Mine Worker
f America In Indianapolis, February
14. All tha anthracite and bituminous
workers In thla country and Canada will
ba represented.
Increased wages will be demanded on
tha ground that miners are the loweat
paid workers ' In America. The maxi
mum wag paid tha average miner In
lilt. It waa stated, amounted to IS27.50.
Leaders termed this a starvation wage
which resulted In terrific suffering and
deprivation among miners' families, as
evidenced In West Virginia and Kanaaa
Influenced ty a, I south wind, which
brought the, .minimum temperature at
Portland 10 degrees higher than the
minimum Thursday morninr, the cold

For today at least the district -weather
forecaster doea hot predict more snow.
even though a slight mist and snowfall
did spread another treacherous coating
over the streets early thla morning;. .
Aa to the possibilities of snow Satur
day, the weather man la not so sore.
Rain or snow is forecast and the tem

Stripped of their clothes and shorn of
their hair, two Oregon Agricultural col
lege students, the victims of hazers.
were left to scamper for shelter as best
they might last Wednesday morning on
a chilled, wind-swept expanse of a Ben

The hapless students were Winfred
Dryden, a college correspondent for the
Oregonlan, and K. C. Binns, sports edi
tor of the Barometer, college publica

offended in addressing a letter to James
Richardson, urging his return as athletic
manager.
The two correspondents were seized by
a gang of 15, most of them said to have
been masked, when they arose late at
night In response to a reuqest that they
do some "special" work for the Barome
ter. .
No time ras lost, according to ac
counts, in running a pair of barbers'
clippers over their heads and in yank
ing off their vestments. Bundled into
an automobile they were taken onto ad
jacent farm lands and tossed onto a pile
of refuse.
"We'll give you until sunset to get out
of Corvallls," the hasers shouted as they
sped away. They heeded the warning
and left college as did Melvin L. Hall.
Journal correspondent, who escaped the
clutches of the hazers. The fourth cor
respondent. Miss Lois Payne of the Port
land Telegram, was not molested.
The summary action of the hazers was

Lloyd George Will V-
Head Proposed New
'National Liberals'
(By tatted Vnm)
London. Jan. 20. The definite
slon of Lloyd George from the old lib
era! party and the formation of a new
party to be styled the "national liber
als" is the somewhat startling disclo
sure in publication of the agenda for
the coalition-liberal conference sched
uled for Friday and Saturday.
' Lloyd George is to be president of the
new organisation and Winston Churchill
will be vice president. The decision,
which is of far-reaching importance ta
British politics, is the principal resolu
tion to come before the meeting. In
which it is declared that:
The conference, believing that liberal -principles
are vital to national, imperial
and international affairs, and having
been denied the rlrht of developing
these political activitt within the lim
its of the existing liberal organisation,
decides to form a national liberal coun
cil for the promotion and defease of
Utese prioclplee."
The platform of the nw group w

armament and unemployment rell-X.
