LAUSANNE, Jan. 30. (By the Associated Press)
Complications suddenly arose ainong the allied representa-,
tivea at the Near East peace conference at a late Hour tonight
when the French delegation announced that it had decided
to remain at Lausanne as . long as there was any hope of
carrying on successful negotiations with, the Turks.
The British delegation considered the decision of the
French as a flagrant violation of thev understanding reached
between the allies a few days ago that all of them would
leave Lausanne at the end of the week if the Turks did not
sign tomorrow' the treaty which has been handed them.
: All the British, delegates announced officially tonight
that that they would adhere to this program, whatever the
other allied delegations decided to do. Earl Curzon will start
for. London Friday.
Separation of Tax Levying
from Tax Spending Group
Is Advocated by Day
The only way to put a brake
on tthe public expenditures Is to
separate the tax-levying . bodies
from "the tax-spending bodies. I.
N. Day, chairman of the state tax
investigating commission appoint
ed by Governor Olcott told mem
bers of the joint assessment and
taxation committee.
Day was speaking in ' behalf of
the proposed bill J to extend the
tax. supervising and conservation
commission to every county in the
state, with authority equivalent to
that now exercised by the . com
mission in Multnomah county.
Most Pnt on Brake
The committie considered all
of the bills proposed by, the state
tax investigation j commission and
one presented by the state ' audit
commission.; but did not vote on
final reports on the bills.
"Unless some drastic action is
taken by this legislature," said
pay, who divided honors wrlth Dr.
James W.. Gilbert of the Univers
ity of Oregon in' explaining the
various bills,' "the; people .will de
nounce ' the members, when as a
matter ; of fact j there is almost
nothing that can be done at this
end. Put , a brake on the tax
levying organizations, of which
there are about 2800 in the state,
and there will be an actual re
duction In governmental costs."
Assessments Discussed
One of the most Important sub
jects discussed last night was that
of -uniform assessments through
out the state, during which it was
shown that variations amounting
to, as much as 400 to 30Q per cent
in the assessed valuation' ot iden
tical subjects were found in, ad
joining'' counties. K It is proposed
to have all assessors- subject to
the authority of the state tax com
mission and required to confer
annually In order; to equalize as
sessments and see-that all assess
ments are made on 100 per cent'
valuation. . :

Two Persons Identified With
Case of Fntzi Mann
Go Before Jury ,
SAX DIEGO, Cal., Jan. 30.
Further Inquiry into the death of
Fritz! Mann, 1 dancer, whose half
clad body was found on a beach
three weeks ago, was indicated to
day when two persons who have
been identified with the case went
before the .county grand Jury.,
They were Mrs." Amelia Mann,
mother of the girl, and Dr.. Louis
L. Jacobs.' from the public health
service hospital at Camp Kearney.'
who was before the grand jury
yesterday, for a short Mne- ,Dr
Jacobs today was in the grand
Jury room for nearly an hour and
a halt. While he was In the room
District Attorney Kempley, who
has given much attention to the
case, was also there. The' district
attorney ' was also : present while
Mrs. Mann was before the grand
The British protest against the
French decision is based on a
statement issued by the British
delegation last week. This was to
tho effect that the treaty would
be presented to the Turks tor sig
nature on Wednesday and that the
allied delegations had , agreed to
depart Friday; if the Turks asked
further time to consider the
treaty, then the conference . was
to adjourn, but the plenipotenti
aries .would be ready to return to
Lausanne 'when there were indi
cations the negotiations could be
brought to a successful conclu
sion. , ...r.,,.r.":. ...t-irw...,
It is insisted by the statement
that the sub-commissions unani
mously agreed to omit the clause
giving privileged treatment to for
eign merchants! ent In ; Turkish
coast traffic, but nevertheless this
clause has been included jn the
draft treaty to the detriment ot
Turkish sovereignty. f
Generally speaking, says. . the
statement, "the allies treaty is
worse than anything we ever ex
pected." ; , - , , ,t, , b ' .
"The conclusion of a system of
legal advisers who would sit, aF
.judges in cases Involving foreign-
era is absolutely inacceptable. It
means that Turkey would ; be
treated as Inferior to Albania."
Causes Sensation
The . revolt against the British
plan .haR been i steadily growing
this week, the ground being tak
en that it would be liable to im
peril the chances of peace bfrcauso
it was too much in' the nature of
an ultimatum. vjf j U J
The British protest of tonight
caused a tremendous ' sensation.
It immediately switched general
interest away , from Near t past
peace negotiations to the ques
tion what is to happen between
the allies when the conference re
sumes tomorrow. .
It is understood the Italian del
egation had "adopted the same at
titude as the; French and will re
main in Lausanne while there is
any hope of making peace.
s.i The Franco-British complica
tion appeared to bring consider
able satisfaction, to Turkish ctr
cles here. The Turkish delegation
was busily employed throughout
the night in preparing counter
proposals to the draft treaty with
tho idea of forcing the allies to
continue negotiations without ! an
adjournment; of the conference.

Final, Decision of British on
, War Loan Expected to
Be Reached Soon
LONDON,. Jan. 30. Stanley
Baldwin, chancellor of the ex
chequer, gare a full report on his
debt funding mission . in the
United States to his colleagues, at
a-cabinet council today. ,The sub
ject was discussed for an hour
and 'a . half, but .no decisiou was
reached.' The cabinet will nicW
tomorrow to continue the discus
sion. ; :- ,' . . ,
l It is considered almost certain
that a final decision will' be
reached this week, first because
if the .American , terms are to be
accepted a speedy decision is re
quired In order to give the Ameri
can congress time to take, neces
sary action-, and second, because
the chancellor"' roust' prepare for
his budget statement next March
and needs to know definitely how
much he4 has to provide for the
payment -of interest to America.
Board Would Remedv. Con
ditionif Allowed to Give
; Special Attention to Slow
Dr. Matthis Asks for Release
of Contract as School
A census taken by the prin
cipals "of all the schools ot Sa
lem has brought out the dis
quieting fact that there are 312
pupils who while not sub-normal
are still . enough backward
to need special teaching, special
classes. Whiltt , the . survey work
has not been done on a strictly
scientific basis by one official
who will judge all on one uni
form standard, it has been pains
takingly done .and It 'represents
a condition that the i school board
feels must be remedied in some
way. It is the condition' as
sumed by House Bill -No. 43,
now pending in the legislature,
to empower , school boards to
give such pupils especial atten
tion, both for their own good
and for tbegood of the others
who may be heM down in their
work to the pace of he slower
ones.' .
With these figures In sight,
the Salem board, which met last
night, endorsed the bill .now
mandatory (tor the school boards
to provide . .special accennmoda
t'ons for these less' agile pupils.
-Sport . Quarters Given, -. ?-,.-Salem
- high school is ' to have
a special wrestling and : boxing
headquarters up in its own at
tic If Superintendent Hug so
decides. - The ' board last . night
turned the matter over to him
for his decision and . control. '
The boys wanted to carry on
this branch of athletics, a lot ot
the boys who are not of the
elitn basketball squad; and' they
have been working down In the
prmory gymnasium. The board
took , the position that" It would
be, better to have them at home,
arid, so they are : to bp given
quarters , and encouragement to
work there in the school build
ing. The board went up at 10
o'clock last night,' through the
dark and the. dust,, to Inspect
the atiic. It is a bit cobwebby,
and they wouldn't dare to pound
the floor very! hard without using
gas masks or ! coal miners' breath-
sponges, but they propose to
clean up the dust and make it
habitable. The squad has sev
eral : matches in prospect with
outside schools.
Doctor Resigns
Following his own request Dr.
J. O. Matthis Is to be relieved
of his contract as school- phy
sician. The board would be
ready to consider the application
of . some good young , physician
who i: would take up the' work.
Dr. Matthis will continue Until
hip successor :s' Installed.
Mrs. Kellogg, ,a half-time
teacher In the high school, hand
ed in -her resignation because ot
her removal from Salem. Her
place is to be filled .by Mrs.
Lulu Parr.
I It was proposed, though not
acted upon, that all girls be re
quired to take a one-yea course
in domestic science, as a require
ment to graduation: Supt. Hug's
report showed that they didn't

Currency May Overtake Aus

Less Than Polish Money
BERLIN, Jan. 30. (By the As
sociated Press) One ten thous
andth of its pre-war value was the
German mark's official rating on
the Berlin Bourse toctay. There
was a lively demand; for dollars
in the post-bourse trading, on a
basis of 45,000 and actual offers
of 50,000 flat. For the first time
in its careening downward flight,
the mark today rushed past the
40,000 notch and it is believed
to be making seven league boot
strides in, an effort to overtake
the Austrian crown.
Incidentally, the mark' today for
the first time was quoted at less
than Polish currency.
If no Premium Money is Ap
propriated Exposition May
Be Called Off
Unless the legislature appropri
ates; money for premiums at the
Pacific International Livestock ex
position, Frank Robertson treas
urer of the exposition association
and a member of the board of di
rectors, will, vote against putting
on the exposition the coming fall.
Mr. Robertson made this .plain to
the ways and means . committee
last night when speaking in sup
port of a request of '$75,000 from
the; state. , t : . .
Two years ago the 'total state
appropriation for the exposition
was $17 5,0 00, but ithis year only
175,000 is asked. The state
budget commission, after perus
ing the estimate of the associa
tion, made no recommendation to
the legislature. v -J
Plmnmer Is Assailed
O. M. Plbmmer, manager of the
exposition, I was the first speaker
in Itjs behalf, and in describing its
value in making farm, life attrac
tive in a way that will keep the
boys . and , girls . on the farm,
brought upon himself a verbal as
sault from Senator Alex La Fol
lett of Marlon, who, while shak
ing his. fist under the nose of Mr.
Plunrmer, declared he would com
pete with his boys against coUege
trained or cTub trained youths In
the state. . .
Ed Cary, livestock producer and
member of the legislature. Judge
Charles H. Carey of Portland and
E. E. Flavllle of Portland were
other speakers in behalf of the
appropriation. Senatoij Taylor
asked Judge Carey., how r he ex
pected to make farm life ; attrac
tive to the boys and girls when
all theproceeds of the farm are
required for taxes. Carey replied
that "the way to keep taxes down
is not to slash on the basic indus
tries. . '-.-.,.-.
Governor's Loss Cited
Much waa said about the value
of the livestock exposition in keep
ing up the livestock standard and
Senator La Follett reminded Mr,
Flaville of a recent statement by
Governor Pierce that hehad sold
1500 head of cattle and lost $15
a head on them.
Because attendance at the Ore
gon normal school has doubled in
two years and is now above 600
students, making a larger faculty
necessary, President J. s Landers
and other representatives of that
institution requested an appropri
ation of $20,000 for the next two
years. Senator Johnson spoke in
behalf of the school. I

the financial needs could be met
