no one was permitted to enter or

gone about carefully to prevent
damage to adjoining property.
Tbe houses selected for repris

by well-known Sinn Fein sympa

drawn revolvers ordered the large

joint resolution submitted yes

of I'nion county to create a hom-a

to the state constitution would be

the proposed act would be sub

The resolution provides that
the Mate land board. on behalf
of the "state, may Ipsue bonds to
the extent of. 2 per cent of the

Immediately upon reccint of a
letter from the Eugene high
school accepting the proposition
uf the Salem high. school that the
cmrerenccs be submitted to the
board of control of the state ath
letic association, the student coun
cil or the local school tent a re
quest to the board askintr that
they, act as a tribunal, with the
recommendation that the hearing
be made in Corvallis as soon as
the board should nee fit. While it
Is entirely in the hands of the
board as to whether they wish to
act as an arbitrary board, the ac
tion not being in accordance with
tbe rules of the association which
require that charges be made by
one school, it is believed that the
members of the board will either
act themselves or appoint others
to act in that capacity. .
. Two letters were received by
the local school yesterday, one ad
dressed to J. C. Nelson, principal,
and the other .add reused to tho
student council from the Associat
ed Student Body of the Eugene j
school. The former stated that
that school felt that U wait Impos
sible with present conditions to
f-esume relations between the two
schools and that if (hat decision
"ere not satisfactory they were
read to present their evidence
before the board of control; and
the latter saying that at a meeting
of the Eugene student body the
action of their principal was unan
imously approved.
Assisting Mr. Nelson in the pre
sentation of ' the caw before the
board and representing the stu
dent council is a committee ap
pointed by the council yesterday,
composed of Paul Staley, presi
dent or the student body, Ralph
Emmons and Ralph nailey, both
members of the council.
'.At an assembly of the students
yesterday the case was revised and
letters from the Eugene school
and principal read; following
which Mr. Nelson remarked upon
the attitude of tbe Salem school.
i While It was Impossible to state
Just how soon a meeting of the
board of control can be held it is
Meld possible that It will be tbe
litter part of next week or the
first f next.

CORK, Jan. 20. In the first
formal interview given to the
press since he came to Ireland.
Maor General Strickland, in com
mand of the troops, told the As
sociated Press today that martial
law was proving a success. He
discussed the reprisals and his
It-tter to the acting Lord Mayor
explaining that I he expected aid
from the citizens through a t rel
iance committee to supply Infor
mation. He did not allude to his
repot t on the burning of Cork.
Among statements made by the
general, was one that women car
ried weapons concealed in their
skirts to the ambushing forces.
He declared he did not expect
Immediate results from martial
law but even before It was im
posed the mnrder gang was find
ing it impossible to live at home
and had begun to form flying col
umns in the MacKoom district
and parts of Tiiprrary and Kil
"The first rcKult- of martial
law was to make these columns
more active." he said. "The defi
nite thing we are accomplishing
i the breaking of the organlza
licn of the republican army. Un
til martial law was declared that
organization was remarkably ef
ficient. It might be taken as too opti
mistic to say that the preent
orerations of the republican army
are its dying kick, but I believe
that to be a fact. How long they
can keep going i a matter of
conjecture. But it is only a ques
tion of time. j
In reply to a question as to
what results had been obtained
by the proclamations demanding
the surrender of arms, the gen
eral admitted ; it probably was
true that the number of arms
personally surrendered could be
counted on the fingers of one
hand, bnt added: j "In one way
or another arms are coming in.
The general spok bitterly of
the part he alleced women were
"The military are not making
war on women or Interfering with
them." he said.; "so, the difficul
