camps at the municipal auto
camp grounds. Tte number of
camps at the city grounds last
night nearly doubled the average
ftV last week and it Js anticipated
that by tonight many more w.ll
take advantage of the camp.
Campers at the fair ground)
have found the ground there ex
tremely damp becausa of the b'g
trees which prevent rapid absorp
tion of the rain. The city camp
hag much more open space and is
larger with ths result that tha
ground has become fairly dried
out. Seventy-five more camps
can be made on the municipal
grounds without over crowding it.

Danish King Will Not
Visit in This Country
COPENHAGEN, Sept. 21. Ru
mors that Klnr Christian of Den-l
mark, is shortly to pay -an official I
visit to the United States are un
founded. The rumors probably arose
from the fict that many influen
tial Danes and Americans living
here at present were of the opin
ion that an official visit to Amer
ica by the king and' queen would
be likely to further strengthen the
natural bonds of friendship be
tween the two nations. They also
thought that it was desirable the
king should go as his own ambas
sador and express Denmark's gra
titude toward America for her
valuable aid in getting back Dan
ish Sleavlg .from Germany.

United States Commission
er Commends Progress
of Oregon Schools
CITY GUEST BANQUETED
Higher Training of Teachers;
Throughout Nations is
Uurged by Leader
John .1. Tigert, United States
commissioner of education, in ad
dressing more than 100 of the
leading educators of Oregon Mon
day noon at the Marion hotel com
plimented the state on its show
ing of 92 rer cent of its school
population attend ng- school.
This showing, he said, is great
ly in advance of many states and
Is due larg3ly to the Tact that Ore
gon Is blersed with an exception
ally advanced school svstem.
After a short visit In Oregon,
the eomm'ssioner "a d that the
only fault he could find with the
state was that it did not advertise
enough, and that the stats's great
educational system, and its many
natural advantages were but little
kiowu in the east. He aho com
plimented, the state over tii fact
that five-sixths of Its turners
have had professional training. "
As a nat'on, Commiss'oner Ti
gert said Americans are given to
boasting, while, as a fact., there i3
nothing to boan about in the na
nation's educational work. Of
the 27,000, CT0 children in the
country of school age. Mr. Tigart
had figures to show that only 2 -000.000
were actually enrolled,
and of this number the average
attendance was only 13.000,000.
Other System Compared
Comparing the American educa
tional system w'th others, he said
there was miich less illiteracy in
Germany, and that the German
system of educat'on was in manv
resnectB. superior to the Ameri
can. Ho figured that the per
cent of teachers with proper train
ing looked bad for the future,
only om out of every five, he paid,
has had professional training In
stead of boasting a fne educa
tional system, he thouRht much
could be done in the way of pro
viding higher qualifications for
taachine. and j"so an enforcement
during fair week in
of the laws compelling children to
attend school. '""""
Xevr Lavr Commmdctl
Mr. Tigert aga'n complimented
the state on the law passed by
the last legislature wh'ch will be
come efrect ve in another year,
which provides that all teachers
in Oreron must have normal
"We really have little to boast
about, considering the poor show,
ing made by the first million ot
mn who were examined at the
beginning of the war." Commis
sioner T'geit sa J. "One of the
ways to improve conditions would
be for people t.- give the teacher
the same consideration as one
would give a doctor or lawyer
that is called into the family and
that all parents should become ac
quainted with taacher of their

The hotels of th3 city, the Sa
lem Commercial club, and the

a cent. The people listing rooms
pay nothing. The rooms are list

America Has Balance
BUDAPEST, Sept. 27. The fu

for years to come.
"A few years and Russia will
be as powerful as it was before
the war," he asserted. "The fate
of Ru.-sia will decide the fate of
Europe and perhaps that of the
whole world aa well. The Ger
