Alarm Felt at Slump in Price of
Barreled Strawberries; Out
put Large
As a result of the hiatns of a
two day holiday period, fruit fair
ly rolled like a flood to the Salem
canneries and packing houses yes
terday. It came all day and all
evening yesterday, beginning with
the daylight hours. At the Hunt
cannery on Front street fruit came
in quantities up to midnight, and
the operations of the Institution
in putting the fruit into cans and
barrels were active up to 12
At the Oregon Packing company
canneries on Twelfth steet and
Thirteenth street, too, there were
waiting wagons with berries
blocks long at dark last evening
and they had been coming that
way all day.
It was the same at all the can
neries and packing houses. The
black cherry packers were very
busy. The Bings are shading off
now, with the Lamberts just
around the corner.
Strawlierry Market Alarm
The canneries were receiving
yesterday strawberries, loganber
ries. Royal Anne and black cher

The strawberry supply is shad-

They will be coming for a week

mammoth crowd of westerners.
President Coolidge, wearing a
"ten-gallon'' hat, today watched
the tri-state round-up, a spectacle
of skill and daring on horse and
steer. I
A perfect day added to the
president's pleasure at viewing for
the first time a celebration of this
kind in a natural setting, and as
the bucking broncho and unruly
steers charged about in the arena
before him, he looked on with a
broad smile."
Seated with Mrs. Coolidge, Sen

Mrs. Norbeck, and other memhers
of his party, in a box directly in
front of the main grandstand, Mr.
Coolidge received his first genuine
taste of what was the only life and
pleasure a decade ago in the coun
try he chose for his summer resi
dence. Cowboys and cowgirls, dressed
in the clothes of the west, tackled
wild steer and unridden horses for
his entertainment, and when an
especially daring or skillful piece
of work was done, he applauded or
turned to Senator Norbeck for an
The crowd was in a holiday
mood and laughed whenever a
cowboy on . horse, galloped in
front of Mr. Coolidge and called:
"Hello Cal." The president
smiled back and also was amused
when the round-up announcer
specified one of the bucking
bronchos as "Cal Coolidge."
When Dakota Clyde Jones, in
charge of the Custer state park
rangers, and the president's fav
orite entry, dashed out of the
chute astride a wildly bucking
broncho, and stuck to its back,
both Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge ap

Whether PaLrley Will See
. Rupture or Conciliation De
pends on Britain
Maximum Cruiser Limit Set at
400,000 Tons; England May
Hold 0nt for More; Seri
ous Effects Seen
GENEVA, Switzerland. July 5.
A crucial stage has been reached
in the tri-partite naval confer
ence. Whether events at this cri
tical turning point pushed the
pour parlors toward an actual rup
ture, or toward an actual treaty,
undoubtedly depends chiefly on
Great Britain.
The United States, today actu
ated, it is said, by a conciliatory
desire to understand British cruis
er needs, and meet them as far as
possible, practlcajly told the naval
delegates that It would go to the
extreme maximum limit of 400,
000 tons, which is 100,000 tons
more than the maximum for cruis
ers contained in the original Am
erican proposal; but strongly in
dicated simultaneously, that it
would exert continued effort to
put limitation well under 4 00,000
Denies Aggressive Designs '
The sudden American initiative
induced W. C. Bridgeman, first
lord of the British admiralty, to
receive the press representatives
tonight, and to them he vigor
ously denied reports that Great
Britain was animated by aggres
sive designs in asking for a large
number of small cruisers.
The naval delegates as a whole,
appear to- desire to understand
British' cruiser requirement?, but
it was indicated that the United
States must go still higher if Great
Britain's needs are to be fully re
cognized. The situation is that
the United States has raised the
figure in criuser tonnage, but the
question remains whether Great
Britain, manifesting a similar con
ciliatory attitude, will abandon

a man giving the name of Jack
Ren fro, who said he was a printer
and pressman, and were holding
him pending the arrival of an of
ficer from Salem, Ore., who was

Rnilding and Loan Association
Stock Misleading, Claim
Attorneys for George E. Davis,
corporation commissioner, filed an
answer yesterday in circuit court
in the suit instituted by the Guar
dian Building and Loan associa
tion. The answer states that, the as
sociation has been printing on its
stock the words "controlled and
supported by the state" creating a
wrong impression in the minds of
prospective patrons; and that the
firm unlawfully offers in its pub
licity to waive the membership fee
after 12 consecutive deposits have
been made on the stock.
The state seeks to revoke the
license of the loan association on
these grqunds. Warning that the
license of the firm would be can
celled unless the grounds of com
plaint were corrected was given
by the corporation commissioner
on June 14, according to .the

Advocated by Snzzallo
Both of the points in the ,reso

dress yesterday by Dr. Henry Snz
zallo, former president of the Uni

The committee, however, put
aside for a year another plank
embodied" in' Dr. Suzzallo's ad
dress. The resolution, which. was
tabled, would " have protested
against "domination of education

Dr. As E. Winship, Boston edu
cator, who IM the attack . on the

Although he termed the dismis
sal of Dr. Suzzallo by the Untver-
sity of' Washington rerents as.
"outrageous," Dr . Winship ex-3
pressed the belief that the pro
rosed resolution "wonld be splend--Id
