CHICAGO, Nov. 28. (By the
Associated Press) Standing with
: outspread arms before an audi
ence that packed the auditorium,
1 Georges Clemenceau today plead-
fed with America to save France
from possible extinction.
I Patiently seeking to explain
f sway the charges of militarism
land Imperialism brought against
3 his country, the old Tiger de
clared that France sought only
peace, but that war was being
;f forced upon her.
t Must Have Aid
f "If France does! not get the
, help that she needs," be declared,
la emotion-laden tones, "she may
J perhaps disappear. J Athens was a-j
democracy, Tery great ana very
'fine. But she disappeared. And
if France were to disappear I be-
' lleve ' that some day the people
- would begin to look around and
ask If something had not disap
peared that had brought life to
the world." j -
, Must First Be War
The aged premier's audience
hang on his every word, Inter-
i rupting him twice to drive him
behind a device which would car
ry hla weak voice through the big
'house; He was Interrupted by
frequent outbursts; of applause.
Clemenceau took for his text
' the epitaph tfthat i he read last
week on Grant's tomb In New
York "Let us have peace.'
'Since the world has been," he
continued "It has always been the
: feeling in every man's heart that
he wanted peace. j But General
- Grant, when he sppke those fam
ous words knew very well that
before there could be peace there
t must be war.
Must Convince Others
- "It is a great pity that war 'S
so cruel; that it brings with it
bloodshed and things we hardly
' dare think of now.j Nevertheless
that was a really i beautiful and

ready to rive their lives for a

Grand Jury Announces No
Indictment Can be Return-
ictment Can be Retu
ed Widow Pleased
SOMERVILLE, N. J., Nov. 28.
-(By the Associated Press)
For reasons which seem to them
sufficient and controlling the
grand Jury took no action in the
Hall-Mills murder case and laid
the matter over. This does not
mean "necessarily that the matter
cannot be taken up again by this
or a subsequent grand jury."
Drama Mysterious
With these words Forman
Gibbs of the Somerset county
grand jury late today made
known the fact that no Indictment
had been returned in one of the
most mystifying murder dramas
that has faced the country in
many years.
Outside the jury room some one
else was awaiting the decision.
It was Mrs. Frances Noel Hall, the
rector's widow, who had rushed
to the court house this morning
in the hope of appearing before
the grand jury and ho had not
been granted access.
She received the decision as
she has received all other devel
opments In this case stoically
with sea trace of emotion.
s. Hall Gratified
Attorney Pfelffer, representing
Mrs. Hall, would make no state
ment at the courthouse but later
at the Hall home in New Bruns
wick he said:
"Mrs. Hall is gratified at the
grand jury decision. I suppose
the officials will continue the
work and I most certainly hope
they do."
State troopers and detectives
tonight had received no orders.
Belief was expressed that tomor
row they would be instructed as
to whether they were to push the
inquiry further.
Street Committee Given
Authority to Build Walk
DALLAS, Or., Nov. 28. (Spe
cial to The Statesman.) The
street committee of the Dallas
city council has been given au
thority to construct a sidewalk
on the Demlck hill, north, of the
city. The old sidewalk was de
molished when the fill was made
two years ago, and the grade was
cut down preparatory to laying
hard surface pavement on the' hill
and since that time the people
of North Dallas have had to use
the roadway as a sidewalk. The
new walk will be started immedi
ately and will be constructed to
conform to the fence recently
placed on the hill and curve, by
the county court. It will be five
feet wide and of heavy construc
tion. -When completed the rails
will be painted white, like the
jailing on the fence on both sides
of the road.

Mother Goes Too Far
EUGENE. Or.. Nov. 2$. R. K.
Bushnell, Springfield. Or., youth
who last night told the police here
that he had been held up, bound,
nagged and robbed of $400 by two
men at the Southern Pacific sta
tion, today admitted to the offi
cers that the holdup was a fake
and that he bound and gagged
himself. He said that he tied bis
hands so securely that he was un
able to untie himself, and had to
call for help.
He told the officers, according
to their statement, that he wanted
to go to San Francisco and, hav
ing told his mother that he had
several hundred dollars when he
had no money at all, he staged
the fake holdup so that his moth
er would supply him with funds
with which to make the trip.
Police Locate Drugstore
Where Stuff Was Purchas
ed Inquest Uncertain
spondency because of ill health
was assigned by the police today
as the motive for Vaden E. Boge,
22, of Hillsboro, Ore., committing
suicide by taking poison here yes
terday in his room at a fashion
able hotel.
Was Despondent
Mrs. Ida Lingenfelter, who is a
distant relative of the dead man,
told the police that Boge arrived
here November 23 from Portland
and came to live with her while
he looked for work. She had
never seen him before .that time,
she said, although her daughter
Nadeen, 17 years old, had corre
sponded with him for more than
a year. Both Mrs. Lingenfelter
and her daughter told the police
that the correspondence was
wholly of a friendly nature. Boge
had appeared despondent since
his arrival, they said, and they
believed he had recently been ill.
Boge wrote a long letter last Sun
day to his mother, Mrs. Edward
Boge of Hillsboro, Mrs. Lingen
feiter told the police.
Declared Suicide
The attempt of Boge to add an
element of mystery of his death
by registering at the hotel for
himself and wife and later or
dered lunch for two served in hij
room, was cleared up today when
the police located the drug store
at which the dead man purchased
the poison. From the druggist's
description of the purchaser and
a comparison of Boge's signature
on the hotel register with that on
the druggist's sales record, the
police declared it their belief that
the case was one of suicide.
It was undecided late today

State Real Estate Law
Is Held Constitutional
Constitutionality of state laws
improving licenses on real estate
brokers is fully established by the
United States supreme court in an
opinion that has just been issued,
according to information received
by C. V. Johnson, manager of the
state real estate department in
the state insurance commission
er's office.
At the legislative session of
1921 the state of Tennessee en
acted a law similar to the Oregon
statute. It was assailed by the
broker in the federal district
court, which held it was not con
stitutional. The state appealed It
to the United States supreme
court, however, which holds it
constitutional. The opinion was
vrritten i hy Justice McKenna.

Variety of Program Arouses
Extreme Interest in Ses
sion of Teachers
The second day of the Marion
county teachers' Institute showed
an interest and a variety of pro-
gram that has made the session
a delight to most of the teachers
It is not asserted that every
body is alike interested in all the
same things at the same time.
One charming lady educator has
a Western Stories magazine thril
ler which she reads at opportune
moments when her nieghbors
don't Joggle her elbow by their
handclapping, and If the insti
tute fails to be a perfect vacation
it will be because the magalzne
is printed in too large type and
won't last it through. But every
body is Interested and interesting
in some way, and it's the biggest
and best Institute in the history
of Marion county.
Program Closely Followed
The regular program as pre
viously announced, was carried
through Tuesday, with separate
diversions , both forenoon and af
ternoon, for the presentation of
departmental work. Some re
markably fine presentations were
made of applied teaching meth
ods. One of the most effective
in the whole institute was the
oral English class of high school
students, under the direction of
MLse Hazel Brown of the Salem
schools, who gave a sample class
lesson that opened many a teach
ers' yes. The students them
selves are the critics ot them
selves, in whatever any one may
say as a critic recitation and the
class is said to be making ex
ceptional progress In English
work. Other excellent specialized
teaching methods wereshown by
other teachers who have been
placed on the program.
Dependent Child Studied
Mrs. Ada Wallace Unruh ot
Portland gave a talk on "The
Problem of the Dependent Child"
that was especially well received.
She showed that of the 2400 chil
dren that pasa through Judge
Kanzler's courta of domestic re
lations in Portland every year,
fully one-half are not In the least
delinquent, but are the vic
tims of marital or social or
financial poverty. The speaker
"got a hand" when she said that
the way to train these children
was "not to take them to any
form of paternalistic hospital-home-school
institution to mix
their ideas of allegiance, but to
some form of a home, large or
small, that turns their education
over to the public school as the
only safe place to teach 100 per
cent Americanism."
New History Pre-jejited
Dr. H. D. Sheldon of Oregon
university spoke on '"TIhj New
History and the Teacher." out-
' lining the various forms that hls
j tory has taken since written or
spoken speech began. He c'.assi
j tied history into seven forms:
J natural history, literary history
j like Gibbon's "Decline and Fall
J of the Roman Empire," or Mot-
ley's "Rise of the Duth Repub
j lie," economic history and cultur
i al history. In the chronological
order of their development.
The speaker urged the import
ance of making the study of his
tory broad and fair enough to
see the intermingling of the clas
sifications. The historians that
are concerned only with the argu
ments of economic lose sight of

Many Jump to Safety
Mrs. Oscar Grant, who had
charge of the pupils on the npper
floor of the' school was so se-'
verely burned in directing the es
cape of the chlldrea that fears
are expressed for her life. ;
