' Early reports from workers of
the fourth annual Red Cross roll
call for Willamette chapter indi
cate that the success of the mem
bership renewal campaign is prac
tically assured, according to ' a
statement issned by the headquar
ters of the chapter late yesterday.
Although bat little progress
wis made on Armistice day due
to the patriotic exercises held
throughout Marion and Polk
counties, yet rapid work on the
part of the solicitors yesterday
netted good results. The approx
imate allotments made to each
district hare been met, and calls
for additional material are com
ing in, in some of the outlying dis
"Salem's quota will not be
known until the last night of the
renewal," said Chairman McDan
ieL "The roll call extends orer a
period of two weeks which means
that final results will not be de
termined until the last hour of
the day set for the final solicita
tions. -However, it is hoped that
virtually every district will be re
ported In bsfore that time.- The
reports which have come in, are
highly gratifying. The industry
and efficiency of 'Salem's Forty
One' will bring success to the roll
tall in this locality. Although
there are many more than 41 per
sons busy in Salem, yet, since the
elty has been divided into 41 dis
trict, the towns throughout the
county are speaking of .'Salem's
FortpOM" and endeavoring t to
equal iu success."
Fiaal Links Formed
President H. W, Meyers, ac
companied by Mr. McDaniel, or
ganized, the towns of Silverton
and Stayton as tha final link in
the chain yesterday. Both of
these towns have been strong sup
porters of the Red Cross and it
is expected that their reports this
season will, be. even better than
those of last year. '
-People are rapidly realizing
: that the Red Cross is the only or
ganization actually equipped to
tarry on the -threefold work of
eirtlan, disaster - and military re
lief," .said President Meyers -of
Willamette chapter, "Other as

WASHINGTON. Nov. 12.
President Wilson has issued his
Thanksgiving proclamation to
night, saying that "An plenty, se
curity and peace, our virtuous and
sjelf-reliant people face the fu
ture" and setting aside Thursday,
November 23, for the usual ob
servance. The text follows:
"The season approaches when
it behooves us to turn from the
distractions and preoccupations
of our daily life, that we may con
template the mercies which';, have
been vouchsafed to us and ren
der heartfelt and unfeigned
thanks unto God for his manifold
"This is an old observance of
the American people, deeply im
bedded in our thoughts and habit.
The burdens and the stresses of
life have their own insistence.
"We have abundant cause for
Thanksgiving. The lesions of
war" are rapidly healing.,. The
great army of free men, which
America sent to the defense of '
liberty, returning to the grateful
embrace of the nation, has re
sumed the useful pursuits of
peace, as simply and as prompt
ly as it rushed to arms in obed
ience to the country's call. The
equal justice of our laws has re
ceived steady vindication in the
support of a law-abiding people
against various and sinister at
tacks which have reflected only
the baser agitations of war, now
"In plenty, security and, peace,
our virtuous and self-reliant peo
ple face the future, its duties ana
its opportunities. May we have
vision to discern our duties, the
strength both of hand and re
solve, to discharge them; and the
soundness of heart to realize
that , the truest opportunities are
those of service.
"In a spirit, then, of devotion
we give thanks in our hearts and
dedicate ourselves to the service
of God's merciful and loving pur
poses to his children.
"Wherefore, I, Wood row Wil
son, president of the United States
of America, do hereby designate
Thursday, the twenty-fifth day of
November next as a day of
thanksgiving and prayer and I
call upon my countrymen to cease
from their ordinary tasks and
avocations upon that day, giving
it up to the remembrance of God
and His blessings and their duti
ful and grateful acknowledgements.?

today accepted the "chairmanship
of. professional baseball" after it
had been tendered him by unani

clubs and thereby becante the fi
nal court of appeal in all matters
of administration which may come
up between the Xatlonal and Am
erican leagues--and any minor
leagues which voluntarily join
the proposed reorganization of
baseball. Judge Landis was hear
ing a case in which J 1 5.000 bri
bery, in connection with- an in
come tax was charged whea a
committee of eight clubr owners
called on him. As the magnates
filed into the courtrooms hats in
their hands, the judge , sharply
banged hl3 gavel down and ord
ered them to make less noise.
When informed of their mission
he had them escorted to his cham
bers where they were kept wait
ing for 45 minutes before the
judge would listen to the offer
which increased his annual sal
ary from $7,500 a year to $50,
000. Magnates Wait on Judge
While the magnates "waited the
judge conducted the bribery trial
in his usual vigorous fashion and
gave rent to some scathing re
marks about the men who falsify
their income tax returns.
"The penitentiary is too good
for them,' he remarked.
Waiting on the judge were
Charles Comiskey, president of
the Chicago American ' league
club: William Veeck, president of
the Chicago Nationals; Jacob Rup
pert of the Xew York Americans;
Clark Griffith, of the Washing
ton club; i Charles Ebbets of
Brooklyn; Garry Herrmann of
Cincinnati: Barney Dreyfus of
Pittsburgh and John Breadon of
the St. Louis Xationals. Later
they were joined by Connie Mack
of the Philadelphia Americans;
Robert Quinn and James Dunn of
At first the judge refused the
offer on the ground that he "loved
his position as judge" too much
to quit the bench. Finally, how
ever, he agreed to hold both po
sitions, hut specified that his
baseball salary should be de
creased by $7,500 the amount
be receives as judge. It was
agreed that as chairman he would
receive $42,500 a year instead of
the $50,000 originally offered.
Accepts for Youngsters
After the meeting. Judge Lan
dis took Clark Griffith, a personal
friend over to a window.
"Grif," he said. "I'm going to
tell you just why I took this job.
See those kids down there on the
street? See that airplane propel
ler on the wall? Well, that ex
plains my acceptance.
. "You see that propeller was on
the plane in which my son. Major
Reed Landis, flew overseas. Reed
and I went to one of the world
series games at Brooklyn. Out
nide the gates were a bunch of
little kids playing around. Reed
turned to me and said: 'Dad
wouldn't it be awful to take base

while you gentlemen were talking
to me I looked up at this propel
ler and I thought of Reed. Then

why I took the job; because . i

Peace Sow Reigns Supreme
Peace settled over professional
baseball today when the opposing
factions in the reorganization of
the game reached an agreement
in every point at issue and thus
ended a war which for five days
apparently had disrupted both ma-
Thrpe hours of argument and
verbal battles which, although
rather warm at times, never were
bitter, found the magnates emerg

Congressman Foster question
ing John T. Meehan. deputy
chief of the board's bureau of in

been any loss to the government
through "political influence."
The witness replied that he
could not say that there had.
Asked if there had been any
complaints of such Influence, the
witness sa!d that he had heard
some criticism of William G. Mr
Adoo after he had resigned as
secretary of the treasury. It was
charged or rather complained
or he added, that Mr. McAdoo
had appeared before the board ou
behalf of the Morse interests.
"I do not want to be under
stood," he continued, "as saying
that it is even inferred that Mr.
McAdoo has interfered with, or
has been harmful to the board in
any way." He explained he was
testifying only as to criticisms he
Meehan also said that whila
most of the investigations of his
department had been of the ac
tivities of minor employes, his de
partment had not overlooked of
ficials. He added that they had
gone "very high" in the board's
personnel. He repeated previous
testimony that no irregularities
had been discovered among the
board's officers. " References
were made, however, to depart

southern district shipyards where
dismissals had taken place at his
recommendation. At one of these

about, he said,, by what he
termed undue and unnecessary de

said, amounted to fully $200,000
