Another day of extreme heat rivaling
and possibly excelling all pest records
for September was in prospect today,
although the district weather bureau
office reported that a shift in the winds
bringing cooler ocean breezes was
scheduled to break up the hot weather
Wednesday.
The oppressive heat of .Monday sent
the mercury up to 93 degrees, equaling
the highest mark ever recorded in
September in Portland- In 1886, 190"
and 1909 similar high marks were
reached.
Willamette valley points reported
continued high temperatures Monday
with Medford at the head of the list
at 102 degrees. Other reports were:
Roseburg, 100 ; Albany, 97, and Salem,
96. Eastern Oregon was having hot
weather too, for Umatilla reported a
maximum of 98 degrees.
A slightly higher amount of moisture
in the air Monday caused the heat to
be felt more. The humidity at 5 p.. m.
was 37. A higher percentage of mois
ture than Monday morning was re
ported at 5 a. m. today with a record
of 84. The added early morning mois
ture held the temperature down
slightly and a mark of 65 degrees was
reported at 8 a. m. as against 67 de
grees Monday morning.
The district weather office forecast
a maximum temperature ranging be
tween 90 and 93 degrees today, with a
shading off in the heat Wednesday
and a shift of the winds to the west.
High temperatures Monday almost
equaled the year's maximum of 95 de
grees set July 2.
AT ALBAS T
Albany, Or., Sept. 12. Not for years
has a September day been as hot as
when the thermometer mounted to 96
yesterday afternoon, according to old
settlers. The temperature yesterday
was identical with that of Sunday,
which was hotter than any day- this
summer, with the exception of July 2.
i. AT THE DALIES
The Dalles, Sept. 12. The fourth day
of the September hot spell saw a maxi
mum registration at the Chamber of
Commerce Monday afternoon of 95.
The maximum Sunday was 93. Dur.
ing the night the temperature de
scended to a minimum of 88. Hot
weather isn't worrying anyone very
much, for the wheat crop is all stowed
away and the farmers are standing by
for the first rains before starting the
fall plowing. . t..
ROSEBl'BO BULB It " :
Roseburg, Sept. 12. Sunday and
Monday were the hottest days ever-recorded-"
here for September The
thermometer reached 100 degrees Sun
day and went a little above that Mon
day. In two Septembers during the
last . 45 years the mercury recorded 99,
one being in 18888 and the other In
1905.
MRS. HARDING IS
Washington, Sept. 12. (U. P.) The
crisis of the grave illness of Mrs. Hard
ing seems to have passed, the six at
tending physicians reported at 9 :12 a.
m. today in an official bulletin.
The bulletin read I
"Mrs. Harding's condition at 8 a. m. t
"Temperature, 98.8.
"Pulse, 94.
"Respiration, 32.
"Early part of night restless. Latter
part comfortable. General appearance
improved. Enlargement due to the
nephrosis decreasing. Laboratory find
ings favorable. Crisis seems to have
passed. -Surgical procedure deemed
unnecessary for .the present.
(Signed) "C. E. SAWYER."
The bulletin shows Mrs. Harding
this morning had near normal temper
ature. "The exact cause of Mrs. Harding's
intermittent attacks, culminating in the
latest and most serious affection was
learned for the first time today. Fol
lowing an operation In 1913 in which
an incision was made directly into the
kidney. Mrs. Harding recovered rapidly
and for a considerable period was in
splendid health. Serious complications
developed, however, when the healed
organ broke from its natural fasten
ings, causing the condition known as
"floating kidney."
- Periodically, it was stated, the un
anchored kidney . presses against the
outlet canal, practically shutting off
the natural outlet. This results In
severe attacks such as the present, and
can only be permanently relieved by
an operation. . Tliis probably will be
attempted as soon as Mrs. Harding's
general health has improved to a point
where a major operation can be at
tempted. The steady improvement In Mrs.
Harding's condition will make it pos
sible for Dr. Charles Mayo, the fa
mous sergeon, who arrived here Sun
day, to return - today to his home in
Rochester. Minn.
The following statement to this- ef
fect was issued by the White House at
11 :8 o'clock :
"Owing to the subsidanee of surgi
cal requirements in the ease of Mrs,
Harding, Dr. Charles Mayo expects to
leave for home this afternoon or this
evening."

GAINING STEADILY
FOR CHURCH
California Delegates to , Epis
copal Convention Present Pe
tition; Hold Intoxicant Dan
gerous for Communion Use.
Episcopalians of California, the
"wine state," wish the right to drink
unfermented "Juice of the wine" in
holy communion instead of fermented
wine if they so desire, according to
a memorial presented to the House of
Bishops at The Auditorium today by
Bishop Joseph H- Johnson of Los An
geles. Many clergymen and laymen
of the diocese signed the memorial. 1
If the General Convention should
not see fit to make the use of un
fermented wine mandatory, the me
morial asks that it "at least give
permission to use the same to those
priests and persons to whom this sub
ject has become a question of con
science." The taste' of liquor is dangerous
where a person taking the sacrament
has been a drunkard, according to
it,
those supporting the memorial. ,A ajp
may start him down again.
FAjVOE ADMITTING T6ME3r ' '
Admission of women to the house of
deputies on the same status as that
granted laymen was recommended to
the house of bishops by the joint com
mission appointed at the last trien
nial convention to consider woman's
work in the church.
The proposal that a separate house
of churchwomen be formed was "dis
approved by the commissionThe com
mission's report was read to the house
by -Bishop William T. NMchols"of. Cali
fornia. As regards the house of .depu
ties, the -constitution. ' Instead of read
ing 'layman." would -read '"la com
municants of this church." This
change is recommended on the basis
of the equality of women with men

COXSIDEE PADDOCK CASE
The resignation or the Rt. Rev. Rob
ert LeWls Paddock, missionary bishop
of Eastern Oregon, which has been of
fered to the house of bishops, of the
General Convention, was set for con
federation this afternoon at an execu
ive session of the bishops.
Bishop Paddock's health has failed
him. and it is said that he was told
by his physicians that if he returned
to his field he probably would be going
to has death. The case is further com
plicated by the fact that Bishop Pad
dock conducts his church affairs in a
manner which, though never criticised
from a religious standpoint, - is con
sidered unorthodox by some of the
bishops.
However, though the bishop's res
ignation might be accepted, he would
still retain hie office, and there would
be nothing to prevent his appointment
to another field when he had regained
his health.
The question of taking into the folds
oft the Episcopal church the Reformed
Church of Hungary in this country
was submitted to a special committee
of the house of bishops this morning
on motion of Bishop Matthews of New
Jersey, who submitted a petition from
the Reformed church.
This, if accomplished, is a step of
vastly more importance than the re
vision of the Prayer book," declared
Bishop- Matthews.. And indeed, In
