37 Shots Taken at Unlucky
Measure by Members of
House 6 Spots "More or
Less Vital.
Fight Begins Soon After
Reading Starts Motions
Shut Off Debate
Thirty seven shots in the t.hni
of amendments were fired at the
administration shipping bill in
the house today and six hit spots
more or less vital.
At adjournment tonight the bill
had covered exactly one third of
Its tempestuous voyage toward"
the senate. Representative Gra
ham of Illinois, a Republican,
went home with three of the
half dozen amendments in his
shooting bag, all of which were
put through with the aid of He- j
publican votes.
Standard Oil Out
Early in the fight. Represen
tative Edmonds, Pennsylvania,
ranking Republican of the Mer
chant marine committee which
framed the bill, formally announced-
oh the floor that the
section, under which the Stand
ard Oil company, for example,
would share in the government
supbsidy for transporting its own
goods in its own ships would be
stricken out bodily. This in the
view of western Republicans, ad
ded to its chance of passage.
Stepping in unexpectedly. Rep
resentative Oliver, Democrat, Al
abaniaHjresented an-ameadment,
acceptance of which virtually fix
ed an upset price for the sale of
the steamship Leviathan, the big
gest of the government fleet.
This provided that the Leviathan,
now being reconditioned, should
not be sold at a price less than
the cost of reconditioning. Pre
cise figures obtained tonight from
the appropriations committee
showed that this cost was $8,166,
000. First declared dead the
Oliver proposal won 81 to 78 by
a man to man count as members
marched down the aisle.
Interest Rate Increased
The fight to riddle the bill was
begun five minutes after the ac
tual reading started. On his
feet first, Mr. Graham put for
ward an amendment to strike out
a section permitting the shipping
board to sell ships without ad
vertisement or competitive sale.
The motion was adopted almost
The other Graham amendment
increased the rate of interest on
unpaid balances for ships bought
from the government from not
less than 4 1-4 per celt. Repres
entative Frear, Republican, Wis
consin, sought to make it six per
cent 'flat, but failed.
An amendment by Representa
tive Blanton, Democrat, Texas,
provided that no 'government em
ploye should be interested finan
cially in the purchase of govern-
men ships, was passed with kittle
Constructors Hit
Out of many offered. Repres
entative Davis, Tennessee, Demo
cratic members of the merchant
marine committee, got through an
amendment providing that pros
pective ship constructors, borrow
ing from the shipping board re
volving fund should pay not less
than 4 1-4 per cent interest in
stead of two per cent, as stipu
lated in the bill.
Touching briefly on the plan to
eliminate the section dealing with
subsidy for industrial ships, Mr.
Edmonds said he was preparing
an amendment to protect Indus
trial ships.
'It will take industrial ships
like those of the Standard Oil
company, ne saia, "away irom
being recipients of any subsidy."
Representative Dickinson, Re
publican, Iowa, one of the farm
bloc leaders, failed in his effort
to have farmers exporting prod
ucts put on all fours with ship
pers receiving an Income tax re
bate. His amendment was offer
ed to the income tax rebate sec
tion, which was later voted out.

California and Nevada Urge
Adoption While Wyoming
and Idaho Oppose
Railroad commissions represent
ing two weslern states Califor
nia and Nevada, asked the inter
state commerce commission to
day to continue the merger of
the Southern pacific and the
Central Pacific railroads which
the supreme court order has or
dered dissolved, while commis
sions of two other states, Wy
oming and Idaho, urged approval
of the separation.
Two in Favor
A group of California business
men, also appearing in the hear
ing which the federal commis
sion is conducting on the South
ern Pacific's application for re
tention of the Central system,
came forward to argue for the
merger as essential to commer
cial and civic interests along the
Pacific coast.
Representative Mondell, house
Republican leader, made the
principal argument for Wyoming
in supporting the separation de
cree. He rested his case chiefly
on the ground that national in
terest required maintenance of
competition in trans-continental
railroad service. An indeoendent
Central Pacific, he declared,
would be of nore advantage both
nationally and locally than the
present merger.
Earl W. Perkins Succumbs
to Injuries Received in
Recent Accident
Earl W. Perkins, 34 years old,
member of the state traffic squad,
died at Willamette sanitarium
at 1:55 o'clock yesterday after
noon from Injuries received a
week ago today when he was run
over near Aurora by a truck of
the Willamette Valley Transfer
Perkins was born at Traverse
City, Mich. He is survived by a
widow who lives in Portland; his
father, S. W. Perkins of Howard
City. Mich., and a brother, G. A.
Perkins of Wheeler, Or. '
Mr. Perkins was an officer at
Tillamook for a time and entered
the state service March 1 this
year, having been stationed in the
Roseburg district until recently.
The funeral probably will be
held in Salem. T. A. Raffety,
chief of the state traffic depart
ment, has sent word to all mem
bers of the squad to come to
Salem and serve as an escort at
the funeral.
Members of the department are
under the workmen s compensa
tion act, and Mrs. Perkins will re
ceive $30 a month from the state.
The accident in which Mr. Per
kins was injured took place when
he attempted to drive his motor
cycle past the truck, and the side
car caught the hubs of the heavy
vehicle, causing him to be thrown
under the truck. The wheels
passed over his legs, crashing

Addresses Today
V-What is understood to be the
laygest ""roup of teachers ever
gathered in Marion county as
sembled Monday for the annual
teachers Institute. Fully 400
persons, mostly teachers, present j
or prospective, filled the high
school auditorium almost to its
capacity seating. They're fairly
swarming all over Salem, In from
all over the county, and some
from outside as well, to get what
the institute offers of superior in
struction. The program opened at 10
o'clock Monday with a half-hour
concert under the direction of
Lena Belle Tartar, music direc
tor of the Salem higji school.
Some exceptionally good singing
was done by the school chorus. It
was enthusiastically applauded.
"Skipper Ireson's Ride," the poem
by John G. Whittier of Salem,
Massachusetts, and the singing by
the Salem Oregonians, made a
great hit.

Marion county court addressed
the institute on the important
matter of defective children, es

authority to send such children
for proper treatment to hospitals
or to doctors where they can be
restored. The law was passed in

State Superintendent J. A.
Churchill, newly elected for an
other four years, was given a sur
prise when the audience gave him
a triple "Bali-rah-rah"' as he
stepped to the;; platform. He
spoke of the need of better rural
school service, as the weakest
link in the present educational
system. The county unit plan,
made optional by the 1921 legis
lature, he advocated as proving
exceptionally successful where it
has been tried in Oregon. Mr.
Churchill gave a powerful address
on the kind of patriotism that
lives to make its country better,

place to teach proper ideals of un
selfish service for the good of

To startthe afternoon pro

two violin solos, and Cecil Dea

joyfully applauded. A number
of excellent departmental studies

with the work at hand. The art
department, presented by Ala

interesting showing on posters.
Dr. H. L. Sheldon of the Uni- i

show what Oregon teachers can
do to make their own schools bet

the people out of mediocrity and

Wife of Murdered Portland
Man Still Missing Be
lieved Implicated
LOS ANGELES. 'Nov. 27.
Every effort was being made to
night by investigation officers to
locate the young woman regis
tered at one of the leadfng hotels
as the wife of V. E. Boge of Port
land, Or., who died of poisoning
shortly after a luncheon for two
had been eaten in their room.

Papers and cards found on the
body indicated that the dead man
was from Hillaboro, ,Or., and
known also as Voden E. Boge and
V. Elwynne Boge.
BoRei registered at the hotel
for himself and wife about 10
o'clock this morning. He had no
baggage. Asked by the clerk
where his wife was, Boge replied j
that she would arrive later In the i
day with their baggage. So far
as known no one at the hotel
ever saw her.
Death Swift
About 1 o'clock Boge telephoned
for luncheon for two to be served
in the room. The waiter who de
livered" the tray did not see a
woman in the room. Less than
an hour later Boge ran from the
room, crying that ho had been
poisoned. He was carried back
to the room by a hall man and
other guests, but he died before
medical assistance arrived. The
hall men and guests said there
was no one in the room when
they entered with Boge. !

On the serving table were the
remains of two luncheons. The
contents of one coffee cup had
been almost entirely consumed.
In it dregs were found traces of
a poisonous substance. The other
cup was only half empty. Two
sets of dishes and two sets of
silverware had been used.
Boge was a member of the Am
erican Legion post No. 6 of Hills
boro, according; to cards found
in his possession. Other papers
indicated that he attended a pri
vate industrial school in Portland
last August. In a motor vehicle
operators' license his occupation
was given as a student.
