The mill had closed down sev

Four Vocational Universities
Program Announced By

East, Middle West, South
And Pacific Coast Will
WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 Four
nited States vocation&l universi
ties one in the eastv the middle
west, the south and on the Pa
cific coast will be established in
abandoned army cantonments by
the veterans' bureau, under a new
policy for the rehabilitation of
former service men, was announc
ed tonight by Director Forbes.
The new policy, Colonel Forbes
said, was worked out with the
approval of President Harding to
correct "the system of farming
out vocational patients," and
properly rehabilitate the approxi
mately 94,000 men now being
Four, First Move.
Colonel Forbes said he would
leave within 10 days for an in
spection tour of advantageous
sites for the proposed universities
in the different . sections of the
country, but expected to announca
the location of the first institu
tion before his departure. Choice
of localities, he added, would be
made Upon' approvalof the pres
ident. Present 'plans, tie said, call for
the first university to start work
within 90 days- with about 2000
men in attendance. The numbers
enrolled at the training colleges,
he declared, would depend upon
the population of disabled service
men in the various sections,
courses will be offered in mason
ry, architecture, plumbing, print
ing, engraving, bookbinding, elec
trical work, carpentry and steam
fitting and such agriculturallines
as animal husbandry, darirying
No legislation will be necessary
for the inauguration of the new
policy of vocational training. Col.
Forbes asserted,,, nor will the cost
be greater than under the present
system decentralized instruc
tion. While the universities will
not be self-supporting, he added.
farm products can be raised to pro
vide partially for the subsistence
of the men.
"These universities," Colonel
Forbes said, "will properly house
the men, properly provide them
with the right kind of subsistence
and permit men with families to
have their families, at the univer
sities. Cottages wll be built to
care for them. They will be put
in training, which will be benifi
cial, not only to their health, but
to their mind as well, and upon
completion of their course, they
will be helpful.
Koonomieal Plan Outlined
"By utilizing" the sites of can
tonments which have been, or are
to be abandoned by the war de
partment, it will be possible to
salvage cinsiderable material and
actually rebuild each cantonment
into a vocational university and
practically erect a small, city in

Near Crime Scene, Sus
Pendleton. Ore., Aug. 22. A
still was found on Government
Mountain near here today by auth
orities investigating the killing of
Matt Jepson, whose multilated
body was discovered at the bottom
of a well on his place near the

Authorities are working on the
theory that Jepson was murdered
by moonshiners, who feared that
he had knowledge of their illegal
acts and the finding of the still is
considered an important clue.
No arrests have been made ex

whose name is withheld.
