O. Bfr Wollerman Said to Have
V Talked of Building Palatial
With the arrest last evening of
O. M. 'Wollerman, police feel that
they; bare rounded . up one of the
most resourceful bad check artists
that has ever operated in Salem.
For the past tea days, officers al
lege, Wollerman left a Jrail up one
street and down the other. Checks
for varying; amounts were given
here and there and everywhere.
.- Several days ago two ; checks
were cashed at a local dairy. At
the time of giving the checks, the
man now identified as Wollerman
told the people that he was work
ing in the state house. About the
time that he figured the checks
would have freturned he called at
the dairy and asked it the firm
waa looking for him.- Being : in
formed that they certainly -were
looking for him, for .the reason
that his checks had come back
marked no funds, he is reported
to have said:
"Well. If that Isn't provoking.
It just, beats all how these banks
do, get: a fellow's account balled
up. I'm going to look into that.
The amusing part of this trans
action Is that before leaving the
dairy he convinced the firm that
the . checks were now good, and
persuaded them to .cash .another
check for him. --.
. wollerman is susupected by
some local business men of being
insane. He -called on several-local
architects of late and requested
them to draw plans for a 115.000
home that he said he was going tc
build in Salem. He also went to
a local furniture store and looked
over the matter of buying about
$8,000 worth of furniture. When
the . credit man began to discuss
terms with: him Wollerman la re
ported . to have said that he die
not desire credit, aa he always
paid cash, V
Police (Officers say that Woller
man served a term in the Oregon
state reform school -years -agor He
was arrested by Officer Lou Olsen.
He made a dash for liberty at first
but changed his mind when he
looked back info the face "of the
officers' gun. He claims ,to be a
member of a leading fraternal or

many today made what was widely

' Real international security

the opinion, voiced in German non

upon Count von Bernstorff's dec

given importance by the security
committee in - the proposed . studyj
of the League of Nations coven-

This Is the article which says
that the league assembly may ad-;

which become inapplicable. The
German . delegates insistence on
the inclusion of this article, was
generally felt to point toward the
treaty of Versailles.

Mammoth Temperance Bfeeting
Slated at Washington, D. C.
--A nauonwlde call to all tem
perance workers and organizations
to meet in Washington January 3
and 4 at a huge mass meeting to
devise a uniform plan for dry can
didates during the 1928 political
campaign, was issued today here
at the final session of the Nation
al Legislative conference. I ' r
This conference representing 31
temperance and reform organiza
tions of the country first made
the call for January 16, but later
a change of the date was an
nounced by Mrs. Ella A. Boole of
New York, vice president. i !

dorsed by the conference, - which
also demanded that nty AamnJ

must assert their respective posi

. The Marion; county budget for
1928 was adopted yesterday morn
ing. It. totals 11,204,260.74,
which is $36,877.52 more than
last year. The budget committee
that adopted the tentative sched
ule as outlined by the county court
was composed of all three mem
bers of the county court and the
following citizens of Marion coun
ty: T. D. Jones of Salem, George
W. Hubbs of Silterton and J. W.
Mayo' of Stayton.
Although there will be $36,
877.52 more taxes collected in
1928 than in .1927 it will not
raise the individual taxpayer's as
sessment one cent. - This will be
due to the increased valuation of
Marlon county.: In other words, a
farmer who paid $100 taxes in
1927 will probably not pay any!
more than that in 1928. The in
creased valuation in the county Is
approximately $2,000,000.
There were no salaries raised.
r-futv employees who may have
been figuring on a raise in pay
at acemtu to disappointment.
The main item that has been
raised is the assessment for
schools, which: has been set at
$233 350.60, which is an Increase
over "last year of 810000. . This
Is due to the increase in the num
ber of school children in the coun
ty, necessitating more schools and
more teachers, j : -
The county health demonstra
tion Is one department that had
Its allowance raised. Last year it
was given $1100. The next year
It will receive $1890. : The allow
ance of '$30,000 for county 4 poor
was raised to $35,000. Road work
in the county will receive $175,
000, which is $5,000 over last
year.; ' . ' -
( Under the six per cent limitation
law this county could' have made
the 1928 assessment alnrost twice
as high. As it stands jidw .it is
less than- four per cent of the as
sessed1 valuation, in paring, allf
items to the j bone the 'county
budget committee figured that
they were only doing that which
the tax payers! of the county are
demanding. No one wants higher
taxes... .
4 The state, on the other hand,
has used its right in this matter
and has levied the full six per
cent tax against ' the counties.
Marion county has a tax of $324,
736.04 assessed against it, which
is $16,236.80 more than last year.
If it hadn't been for this raise in
the amount y of money that must
be furnished the state treasury,
the, budget for 1928 would have
been considerable less.
