Couch Mathews must have been
surprised. Tor cne eye-witnes.i

words, and another vernaclous
chronicler professes to have count

Willamette student body, through
PauHFlegel as spokesman, pre
sented him with the finest travel

wasn't in a talking mood. If
some one had cried "Fire," he'd

Willamette feels that it is los
ing a real asset. There are pre
judiced undergraduates who
would trade off a whole assort
ment of presidents and deans and
mathematics profs and almost
everything elso on the curricu
lum, to keep Coach Mathews-
like tbe patriot who wanted to
sacrifice all his wife's relations
to the war.
Mr. Mathews left Tuesday for
Seattle to look over his new field.
He may not even return to Sa

his immediate action. His many
friends here regret to see him
leave, though all are gratified
that he has found a broader field
for his services.

The body of Angus Living
ston Kinnsey, 13 years old,
wa.s found by searchers in the
north fork of tbe Santiam riv
er at a point about one mile
west of Stayton yesterday. In
vestigation indicated that the
boy was drowned while at
tempting to ford the stream
which for the past two months
has been swollen as a result of
the spring freshets.
Voung Kinnsey and bis broth

ymrr old. left home of hist
parnts early in March for Me-1
ha ma to buv groceries. When!
thev failed o return home .-ill
night their parent I, -came alarm
ed and Sheriff Hower of Salem
was notified. Subsequent Inves
tigation by the officer indicated
that the boys had visited the Me
hama store, purchased the sup
nper and were s-n tv acquain
tances while en rout- from there
to their home.
Although a systematic search
was made for tbe boys neither or
them was located until the body
was found yesterday. Officers
expressed the opinion last night
that the younger brother was al
so drovnru. and the river is bs

Immediately upon finding the
body Coroner Rigdon was notiHed

drowning. He declared last night
that an inquest was not necessary.

to the number of cars that took

May 17 until May 31, the first
two weeks after the opening of
tbe grounds last year.
Four hundred and twenty-six of

California licenses appeared
most among the 426 cars that reg

state. This is due, not to the fact
that so many California people are
already traveling, but that east

on an early return to their homes.

Pay Reductions Vary From

anCAGO, May 31(By
The Associated Press An
estimated $400,000,000 will be
slashed from the nation' an
nual railway wage bill when
order cutting wages an av- ,
erage of 12 per cent to be
handed down tomorrow by the
United States railroad labor,
board becomes effective June
if The order affects rrTembers
of 31 labor organizations, em-,
ployed on 104 railroads.
f While the decrease is spe
cifically applied only to the
roads whose cases have been
heard by the board, the decis
ion says it may later be ap
plied to any other road ask
ing a hearing under provis
ions of the transportation act.
p Redaction Computed.
$ Percentages of reductions
computed by members of the
board gave the average of .12
per cent, and the same source -estimated
the annual reduc-
tion in wages at approximate
UThe decision brought reduc
tions varying from 5 to 13
cejits an hour or from 5 to 18
per, cent, and in the case of .
section laborers wiped out the
increase granted them by the
$600,000,000 wage award of
July 20, 1920. For section men
the reduction was approxi-t
mately 18 per cent or from
$3.70 to $3.02 per day.
Cuts Are General
Switchmen and shop crafts
were given a 9 per cent re
duction while train service
men were cut approximately
7 per cent. Car repairers were
cut about 10 per cent.
Common Jabor pay, over
which the railroads made
their hardest fight, is to be
reduced 6 to 9Vfe cents an
hoiir, cutting freight truckers
average monthly wages to
$97.10 and track laborers to
$77.11. This new schedule
still gives section men an av
erage daily wage of $358 for
art eight-hour' day, although
considerable testimony of
fered by the roads showed

as $1.50 for 10 hours.
