Berlin, July 31. According to an an

Einstein , has discontinued his lectures
at the' University of Berlin. Although
no reason is given, it is understood
that lack of serious interest in the lec

At on of : his recent lectures, the
audience was composed mostly of for

students, and several Knlish speaking

visit to a theatre. They displayed far
more interest in the personality of the
famous professor then in the .learned
exposition of bis theories. Professor
Einstein did not like being a target
for the opera glasses of curious cas

The first action.wnl.be to convey

Hoover said.. '.:.' i '.r
The rationing board, however, cannot
hope to meet ail needs. Hoover esti
mated between 3,259,000 and 8.500,000
tons of bituminous' coal must be pro
duced each, week to satisfy the neces

HARDING MAT SAME COAL
, COMMISSION THIS WEEK
(Br Uni-renal Berrlee) i
Washington, July 81.- With the na
tion1 practically on a war ration" of
coal. President Harding this week is
expected to appoint a commission to
probe the whole industry.
According to- reports at the White
House, the commission will represent
neither side in the strike controversy.
Its membership will be picked from
prominent men equipped- to suggest
a cure lor the basic ills of the coal
Industry and the prevention of future
strikes. ..-?: : ;-- ;
Appointment , of the commission is
expected at tha , Whita House within
the next two days. Its members, after
receiving final instructions from Pres
ident Harding will, leave Washington
immediately for personal survey of
tne : central competitive coal :. fields.
which are now paralyzed by the strike.
TO STTJBY' CONDITIONS
An exhaustive report on wages, con
ditions and hours of labor in the In
dustry will be onty a minor portion of
the report' expected from the Investi
gators. - The principal result hoped
for by the administration will be the
working out of a detailed and practical
plan for modernising tha tndttstry.
in the view of President- Harding
and his advisors, customs and prece
dents have played too large a part in
the operation--of the: national coal
fields, v. The employment of efficient
business methods, it is believed.' would
result .in the production - of sufficient
coal with; considerably less labor and
reduced expense to the consumer.
TOO- MANY. MINERS -
President Harding recently has been
advised . that there are at , least- 150,004
more- miners " than . are necessary in
producing tha nation's fuel supply.
This results in intermittent work and
duties of the coal commission will be to
ascertain whether elimination of .un
profitable mtnea; increasing' the num
ber of . working days and . putting the
industry on a' wholesale competitive
basis wouldl not practically eliminate
the possibility of future strikes.

Court Extends Recanvass to 4
'Other Counties, but Declines
, to Invalidate Entire Vote in
7 Marion County Precincts.
Salem, Or, July Sl.The amended
petition filed last week by counsel for
Charles Hall in the gubernatorial re
count case was . allowed with certain
Qualifications In: a "decision rendered
this morning by Judges Bingham and
Kelly sitting en banc In the Marion
county circuit court. :
' Under the court's ruling the Hall
forces are fallowed to extend the re
count into' Baker, Klamath, Sherman
and Wasco, the four additional coun
ties enumeratedln the petitions where
in Irregularities also are charged. A
total' of 1895 votes are involved In
Hall's amended complaint, y:
; The court, however,;', denied the ap
plication, advanced - on- behalf -of Hall
that the entire vote in the seven enu
merated Marion county precincts t be
thrown out because Of , influence al
leged to have' been exercised -In thee
precincts by the Catholic church and
its agents. . The Hall people contended
that in the precincts of -East Mount
Angel, West Mount Angel, bt raui,
Sublimity, West Oervals, McKee and
Scollard, OJcott ' had received a total
of 843 votes and Hall 23 votes, which
overwhelming majority they attribute
to the; influence ef the cnurcn wrong
fully exercised. ' ,,
The court's view, however, was to
the effect : that- in such a case, ' even
though certain votes had been wrong
fully . influenced,, it was improper to
cast aside the vote- of an entire pre
cinct and' thus invalidate such votes
as had been properly cast. It Is com
petent for .the contestant, ' said the
court, . to attempt to establish is
charges of irregulariies in individual
cases.:. .....J .'',. '
. In the matter of ' re-registration, on
election day, the court ruled that here
again the contestant must prove, each
and every case of alleged registration
for zrauduienv.purposea.. .
; : Then the ' court - recessed to " permit
counsel for Oicott to prepare an ap
plication for an amended answer in
which It is learned that the Ku Klux
Klan will be charged with having ex
erted undue Influence similar: to that
charged "by , tha Hall forces f to the
Catholic church --and , .demand wiU 'be
mad.: of counsel for HaH, to specify
Individual cases in the seven Marion
county precincts In which tha church
influence was , exercised.
It is probable: that the greater part
ef tha legal- questions will be removed
in the Marion recount which will be
gin soon, V. OkBoyer, county clerk of
Marion, will represent the court on
the county board i O. K. DeWitt of
Portland, the. contestant, and J. L

DENBY BELIEVES -
JAPAN IS SINCERE
Manila, P. - L, July 31. (tT, P.)
Confidence that Japan is making a sin
cere effort to liva up to the treaties
and agreements made at the Washing
ton arms limitation: conference, and a
belief that strong leadership is the
pressing need of China, were expressed
today by Secretary of the Navy Denby
In an interview discussing Oriental af
fairs, i. -.
The secretary arrived early today at
Menmores, near -here, -to rest- a -short
time from bis strenuous Oriental trip.
Denby declared, however, that Pa
cific conditions were not yet sufficient
ly stabilized to permit granting inde
pendence to the Philippines.
"If I -were a FllipinoC. knowing what
! do,. I would probably be unwilling -to
lose the protection . of the United
States," he said, r i
He expressed the opinion that inde
pendence for the islands was not a
prospect for the immediate future.
Discussing Chinese affairs. Denby
declared tha need of that country is a
strong man to hold the militarists 'In
check. Wu Pet,Fu, who recently came
out victorious in the Chinese revolu
tion, "was Characterized, as the strong
est of - the ' present Chinese' leaders. ,
