Washington, Sept. 9. Did Woodrow
Eilson hare sny connection with the
tignatlon of J net ice Clarke from the
preme bench to which he originally
tominated him Or, to put it another
ry", did the influence of, Woodrow
v tVilaon bring about the retirement of
v Mr. Clarke at the very moment when
the return of former Governor Cex of
5hio from Europe revive the tatter's
brealdentjal boom.
These questions, have been variously
sked and answered by Democratic
oliticians who cannot believe that Mr.
-v flarke's primary reason for leaving the
. tench is to .read nooks but that his
teal reason is to take an active part
fet- the advocacy 6f American mem
bership in the League of Nations.

Harding stated that he wished to serve

Causes, The most important cause

. the League of Nations and his
(noughts run so much along the same
lines as those of Woodrow Wilson that

thampton of the league would surely
followed Ky some expression on the
feart of the Democrats of Ohio in favor
if Clarke for -president. The Democrats
fould not object to a candidate from
Ohio since it is not unlikely that Mr.
; Harding will be renominated unless he
ieclines to serve again.
In t&y event the biggest fact about
he situation b that for some reason or
tner. Mr. Wilson is not overly fond of
Jim Cox as a candidate.- much as he
' likes what Mr. Cox has done In advoc
.' icy of the Iieague of Nations as a
temocratic issue.
I Possibly it is that Mr. Cox was so
iyerwheimingiy beaten and possibly
f ecause Mr. Wilson would prefer an
other type of candidate and possibly it
i'gg because the former Ohio governor
as nominated as a result of a com
bination of leaders in the. Democratic
arty. who are in Mr. .Wilson's opinion,
fhfriendly to him the truth is that if
the former president were asked his
deas on the subject and if he were to
give them frankly he would not urge
Mr, Cox for the presidency. It was be
cause Mr. Wilson steadfastly refused
to send a letter of greeting to the din
ter given in honor of Mr. Cox just
feeore his departure for Europe that
Mr. Wilson and Mr. Tumulty, his form
er secretary, fell out.
"Certain circumstances make it appear
that several of Mr. Wilson's friends in
' Ohio vrho can interpret his mind are

stantial evidence is brought forward

Lottery, Living of Five, Ends
Oriental .gods of chance turned
against 19-year-old Grace
Lee. pretty
Chinese girL who stood before munici
pal Judge Kkwall Friday afternoon
and pleaded :
-I'm guilty.
The lottery with which she had sup
ported herself and her four brothers
and sisters at last had
played her
false. Police Thursday night raided
the store which she keeps at No. 286
Flanders street and found some lottery
paraphernalia. I
In court she faced the charges and
paid a 915 fine as any other Chinese
lottery keeper would do.
But it was after court wa dismissed
that the story of how the brave little
Chinese lass, an orphan since she was
15 years of age. supported her smaller
brothers and sisters off the earnings
of her little store and occasionally a
lottery game, was revealed In the lobby
of police headquarters. I
Her father died 1ft years ago ; her
mother died four years ago. There
were five children, and Grace was the
eldest. At 15 years of age she took
over the store and managed things.
She was then Just ready to graduate
from grammar school, but she was
forced to drop out. I
It was hard, but-somehow she made
ends meet. And as her brothers and
sisters grew up. she saw that they
remained in school. An American sh
was. In birth and citizenship, and she
wanted to teach them In American
. Now Fanny Lee, her elder sister,
age 1? years, is attending the girls
polytechnic school. Frank. 15, is at
tending th boys, polytechnic school.
I sa belle and Kdwin, age 13 and 10 re
spectively, are In grammar school.
All four are able to remain in school
because Grace keeps the store and
runs the lottery game. But the store
doesn't pay very much.
"Now I'll have to work." lamented
the head of the little family. "Maybe
someone will have to stay from school
to run the store, I don't know." The
girl spoke good English, with only the
faintest Oriental accent.
"Then you won't run '.the lottery
game any more? she was -asked. But
a big, burly policeman told her the
person she was talking to was 'a re
porter. She shook her head as she
edged for the door.
Maybe she meant she wouldn't Or
maybe she only meant she wouldn't
retained Mr. Wilson's unbounded con
fidence, has been asked to I participate
actively in Ohio politics. He refused.
Yet recently when he was asked to
accept the chairmanship of the Cuya
hoga county central committee of the
Democratic party, he accepted, much
to the surprise of these same observ
ers who now believe that Ihe was in
spired by a desire to help the Wilson
cause in Ohio through the Interjection
of Justice Clarke into the situation.
As a piece of political strategy the
lining up of the Ohio delegation for
Clarke instead of- Cox would have an
important bearing no doubt on the ac
tion of a national Democratic con
vention. Assuming that Mr. Clarke is
himself not a party to the politics of
the situation and is simply Interested,
as he says, in espousing the League of
Nations, nevertheless his availability
as a Democratic candidate for the pres
idency is being widely discussed by
Wilson men as he has the stature and
intellectual capacity for the Job. All
this, ofs course, is predicted on the
theory that. Jim Cox can be beaten in
a state he has thrice carried.' He is
a fighter who knows no obstacles and
he is never beaten till the votes are
actually counted and some of his
friends say not then either.
Plan Monument at
Klamath Falls, Sept. 9. Erection of
a monument to the pioneers of Klamath
county at Rattlesnake point, scenic
spot on The Dalles-California highway
near here, Is the proposal of R. H.
Cook, local photographer. With this in
view. Cook arranged to have Captain
O. C Applegate, Modoc war veteran
and Klamath's "grand old !man," pose
for photographs on a pile of rock at
the proposed site. The picture showed
Captain Applegate, clad in buckskins
and carrying a rifle, gazing out over
Klamath lake. Cook believes a bronze
monument erected at the spot would be
a mark of esteem for the pioneers as
well as a valuable advertisement for
the highway.
Woman Injured in

When she leaned over a second story
porch railing to shake a mop, Mrs. L.
Cohen, 65-year-old widow, No. 409
Jackson street, fell to the ground Friday-afternoon
and suffered a fractured
left wrist and cuts on the forehead.
The railing collapsed with her weight.
She was taken to Emanuel hospital.

It was stated today that all of the

possible exception of Mrs. O'Hare, who

about the face and body, physicians

Voters of ' Oregon,
Yonar j Attention!
Reasons Why You Are Asked to Vote
for the Cornpulsory Public School Bill
The compulsory public school education bill to be offered for the
consideration of voters on the ballot at the coming November elec
tion in Oregon is a measure for the promotion of Americanism.
It is sponsored by the SupTeme Council of the Scottish Rite Masonic
bodies for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States. It has
been indorsed in principle by the Imperial Council, Ancient Arabic
Order, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, and by the Grand Lodge of
Oregon, A. F. & A. M,j It is backed in advocacy by the Scottish
Rite Masonic bodies, and the idea it represents was first initiated
and promulgated by them and subsequently indorsed by the other
organizations herein named.
The issue presented is nor an issue of religious creed or factionalism
or intolerance. It is an issue of true American progress.
The Scottish Rite Masonic bodies are promoting this measure be
cause their members beliejve that the hope of America is in its public
schools; that if Ameritan institutions are to endure, American
children of grammar school age'must be taught common ideals-
AMERICAN; that thev must be taught in a common language--ENGLISH;
that they must be taught to uphold and foster one set
of principles- those of pur American forefathers. . They believe
that the future of our race, our nation and our institutions will be
perpetuated if all our children of grammar school age are so taught,
and not otherwise," I

Y driving ; a Durant Four, equipped with
Coast Cord Tires, from Salt Lake City to
Reno, via Ely, Nevada, in 1 9 hours and 20
minutes. Bud Bodell of Reno
Brok all precious records by
twelve hours and 17 minutes
The distance covered in this remarkable performance; was 638 1
miles, which was traveled at an average speed of 33.2 miles per hour
under the worst possible conditions. Repeated cloudbursts and wash
outs destroyed the roads for mahy miles and necessitated traveling !
over huge boulders, rocks and through streams of rushing water.
Seven different mountain ranges were crossed in this drive, and not
withstanding the rough traveling and adverse conditions, all four Coast ;
Tires came through without damage, and not a single tire change
was made on the entire trip.
Bud Bodell, the driver, slates that this is the hardest test he ever -gave
a set of tires, and the result is another triumph for Coast Cords.
