WASHINGTON, Dec. 17 While
President Coolidge continued to
day hd efforts to prevent the

tal pay increase hill by the senate,
that - body entered into a unani
mous consent agreement for a vote
on' the veto not Jater than Janu-

Calling a number of republican
senate leaders to the White House
the executive again Informed them
of his ideslrethat the veto be sus
tained because any other action In
advance ' of the enactment of a
revenue measure to take care of
, the pay raise would interfere with
the economic policy of Ills ad

regards as a harmful practice of
leaving to the future the -matter
of j providing for present author
ized expenditures. 1

After these leaders had ' visited

were imade to get a unanimous

are of the opinion that there will

Outcome of Drainage i

The Salem drainage district
plan went through another day of
debate in the county court yester
day, and will be taken up again
today at 10 o'clock. Attorneys
believe the case will be closed by
noon. : Whether a. settlement will
ever be reached between the two
opposing factions seemed doubtful
in , view of the testimony given by

of these people have now signed

Coolidge Center of Attack By
Senator Norris; Under
r wood Replies
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17. Pres
ident Coolidge and the Underwood
bill were attacked and defended
in the senate today during debate
on the Muscle Shoals issue. ;.
Senator Norris, republican' Ne
braska, charged that the measure
would "make Teapot Dome look
like a pinhead,"! and Doheny and
Sinclair look like "pikers," and
asserted tha enactment of the leg
laXatiCTr fateywoul(rireT:crnTe Ttnown
as the "rape of the treasury." He
accused the president of overrid
ing the will of the senate agri
culture committee which reported
the Norris government ownership
bill and of attempting to solve the
Muscle Shoals problem with "mid
night confenences on the May
Replying to the charges, Senator
Underwood, democrat, Alabama,
author of the government owner
ship leasing " bill, pending as a
substitute for the Norris measure,
declared Muscle Shoals legislation
should not be regarded as a po
litical measure, and he was glad
that he and the president were
accord on the questIon.
declared the president was observ
ing custom when he made known
his attitude on the Muscle Shoals
question in his message to con
gress and accused Senator Norris
of being a follower of populist
principles in advocating; govern
ment Instead of private operation.
Senator Underwood also charged
that "an arganized filibuster to
prevent action on the Muscle
Shoals bill was in progress and
warned the senate unless one bill
was passed and sent to the: house
for passage before March 4, the
water would be allowed to go -j rer
the spillway ' and property worth

Teachers Don't Use Mistletoe for
- f -Decorations So Why Gather It Now?
I i l in i i ir 1 i i in i i i i i i 1 1 ii i i i ' i in ll !
Attractive and Seasonable Decoration Obtainable Only at Great
. ; Peril of Limb and Even Life Declares Writer I I
It is the practice of country;
school teachers, and possibly many
in the city, to send pupils out
scouting ; for Christmas . greens at
this time, to be used for the pur
pose of decorating for the grand
afternoon or evening performance
that marks the festive season. .
Now this is: all very well and
commendable and greatly enjoyed
by the children, but there is one
feature that should be eliminated
by law, if there is no other
method, and that is gathering mis
tletoe. It is very pretty, of course,
and there is the old sentiment con
cerning it i which we delight to
foster, without giving a thought to
the perils encountered in securing
it.y : ":- ." "
No Mistletoe ever grew closer to
the ground than twenty feet, but
more often it i thirty, forty or
even sixty feet high, in a slick,
slippery: oak tree that may have
but few. branches to which a boy
may cling or climb when secur
ing it. .
'The teacher has only to hint
that mistletoe is pretty, in order
to put every child in a wild frenzy
to frc'irc? it, so' . that '.che is not
yesterday was whether or not the
state could legally enter its 1430
acres in the proposed district. If
it is found that this would be irre
gular, the elimination of the state
land would cause the drainage
plan to fail, as the signed acreage
would then be less than half of
the total acreage. -j '. i- '
It .was announced during the
course of the case yesterday that
an agreement had been made by
attorneys for, both factions that
property of all those signing the
remonstrance who live on high
land be eliminated from the dis
trict. Circuit Judge L. H. McMahan,
as acting county judge, fs sitting
on the case with the county court,
and should Injunctive proceedings
be started in the circuit court,
Judge McMahan would be dis
qualified to try that case. ; No
matter which faction wins in' this
case, it is understood the matter
will be carried to a higher court.

CHICAGO, Dec. 17. (By the
Associated Press). Winter to
night was enthroned in the west
and middle west and his heralds
had reached eastward to the Ohio
valley region.: :'L
The arrival of the most severe
cold of the season in the north
west and west was responsible,
directly or indirectly, for the loss
of upwards of a dozen lives, while
in the Rocky mountain region
huge snow drifts played ; havoc
with trato schedules and interrupt
ed wire communications, jr
While the entire northwest, , in
cluding Minnesota, the Dakotas,
northern Iowa, western Wisconsin,
and the Canadian provinces, were
in the icy grip of sub-zero wea
ther, the nip of the cold in the
middle western and central states
was not so severe as had been an
ticipated. . I - : "
The severe cold was expected
to continue for another! 24 hours.
In Minnesota it was ifrom ;3 to
20 degrees below sero while in
North ! Dakota the temperature
ranged from 16 below at Fargo to
24 below at Williston. South Da
kota's mercury ranged from 10 to
16 below. . : I A ;
In the Rocky mountain region a
moderation of the cold was ac
companied by a heavy snowfall,
extending into western Wyoming
and through virtually all of Idaho
and Utah into eastern Nevada.
The Rocky mountain storm, enter
ing on its third day, hindered raU
traffic and caused trouble to wire
communications. In Montana
roads were reported almost , im
passable with the snow drifting
badly; and range stock suffering
to some extent. The cold weather
in this region will continue,, it was
predicted. i
In Chicago people, awoke today
to find streets . and sidewalks , a
glare of ice. One roan was killed
in a fall and upwards of a score
were seriously injured. ,

appalling liat of broken legs,

from gathering it, but by refusing
to use it, she would confer a last

like to use large words whether
I know what they mean or not.
One Christmas I recall, a couple
of youths of about 15 years, heard
that there was mistletoe to be
found on the Polk county side of
the Willamette fiver, where there
are many oak trees, and secured
an, old, leaky boat with which to
cross the swollen stream. Neither
lad had had experience, and the
most marvelous part of the story
is that they returned; home alive.
There are plenty of fir boughs,
Oregon grape and sword ferns, all
of which are pretty and easy to
secure, and if the children are
warmly clad when sent after them,
and also if not allowed to stuff
themselves 'with such ?vast quan
tities of very cheap, jvery green
and .very red . candy, . the . doctors

Peace Plan Held Greatest
Problem Before United
States for Settlement
American people will never i con
sent to become a part of a scheme
or plan for peace which recognizes
war as a legitimate method of set
tling disputes or which is i con
trolled through international poll
tics. Senator William E. Borah
declared in an address to the Phil
adelphia Forum upon the subject
of "Outlawry of War,"
Because of hi3 recent elevation
to the position of chairman of the
senate foreign relations commit
tee and the status before that body
of the question of American entry
into a world court. Senator
Borah's subject had aroused espe
cial interest. , t
"To talk of leagues and courts
while pursuing a deliberate policy
of violence and vengeance," Sena
tor Borah declared, "is to trifle
with the greatest problem now be
fore us for settlement. :. - ,fy.
"There is no hope ; for peace,"
he asserted, "so long as great
powers will that there shall be no
peace." He listed a, number of
international incidents since the
World war which he ; said have
involved "a resort to violence up
on the part of great and powerful
nations against the unarmednd
helpless.' . , '
He suggested that the phrase,
outlawry of war" be dropped for
substitution of law and judicial
tribunals in international affairs."
"The plan should . be consider
ed," he said, "as three separate
propositions; creation of a body of
international law involving 'going
as far as humanely possible to re
duce international relations to es
tablished rules of conduct.'
"Establishment ot aa independ
ent tribunal with jurisdiction and
power to determine all controvers

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17. De

prize fighter, charged with die
nrurder of Mrs. Theresa Mors, be
gan rearranging plans of attack
against prosecution testimony here
tonight as a result of the abrupt
closing of the state's case late to
day. V ..1
Albert A. Mora, husband of the
slain woman, was not called to
the witness- stand, leaving- the de
fense unprepared to continue and
court adjourned one hour early.
A subpoena was served by the
defense Immediately upon ad
journment. The prosecution , ex
plained that the testimony) of
Mors was not necessary, since F.
A. Andreannl, .his attorney, testi
fied to the felicity , in the Mors
household prior to the introduc
tion of McCoy.
Attempts were made' by the
prosecution Ito Introduce-letters
from Mors to McCoy's brother-In
law, Roy Davis, a Lbs Angeles
banker, in; which the former pre
dicted "insanity and death, mur
der and suicide" as a result of the
ex-fighter's relations with his

records after being identified by
members of the district attorney's
office who seized them.
The 'letter written June 1 at
Santa Barbara by Mors, appealed
to Davis to have McCoy cease his
attentions to the wife.
Saying that Davis was a respon
sible member of McCoy's family.
Mors' letter continued:.
"I beg you to call him away,
else I may be forced to kill him
for betraying my home and dis
honoring my hearth."
The second letter, written, by
Mors to Davis from San Luis Ob
ispo, June 2, 1924, revealed that
the antique dealer "sought to buy
off" McCoy's attentions. "I be
lieve in my wife," the letter said.
"I have known ber for 17 years:
a curious mixture of - saint and
sinner, but the saint predomin

and his record as an open book.
I quite frankly ask you to find
out from him what amount of
cash he would take to leave my
wife alone."
' "I am simply doing this because
at heart your moral leper of a
brother-in-law covets his neigh
bor's chattels . . However,
he has broken every law, human
and divine, so I don't expect this
offer of mine will occasion him
any qualms except cupidity.
"Otherwise insanity, death.
murder and suicide may result,"
the letter concluded. . "This
scandal' will grow and grow un

offering to buy him off his prey.

der of Secretary ,'
Harwood Han, superintendent
of - the Salem Indian training
scnool, received word from
Washington yesterday that , the
way it stands now the item
in the appropriation bill, which
has passed the house and is now
in the senate, contains a provision
that Alaskan Indian pupils shall
not be allowed to come to Che
mawa. excepting upon . the order
of nhe secretary of the Interior.
As it would take some time to
erect! new buildings for the three
proposed new schools in Alaska,
as provided in the bill, it is likely
that under the measure, as it now
stands, the secretary -of the in
terior would give such orders, al?
lowing Alaskan Indian pupils to
come to the Salem school.
If the secretary happened to be
the right kind of a man, haying
humane considerations, and ad
vanced ideas concerning the, wel
fare of the Alaskan Indian child
ren, this practice would no doubt
be kept up lndifinitely, even as
the bill now reads. :
So the Salem school would con
tinue to be the outstanding insti
tution of the kind in the United
States, and the largest one in point
of attendance.: !
But, for the permanent good of
the Alaskan Indians, the provision
leaving the matter in the discre
tion of the secretary of the In
terior ought to be'stricken out. A
secretary of the interior who did
not fully understand the matter
would otherwise have the power
In his hands' to do a grave Injus
tice to the Alaskan (Indian boys

ter living and higher; usefulness,
