CUBA seems to be having an epidemic of revolutions. Each
president sits on an uncertain seat while the groups plot
for his overthrow. The army group, the student, group, leftist
groups, all scheme for power, hope to control the executive

and the congress. Macnado, nice tne typical jsouin American
dictators, ruled with an iron hand, but he ruled. His despot
ism has given way to near-anarchy ; and it is difficult to de-
, termine which is worse. Now the fifth man in sixth months
occupies the presidential palace; perhaps by the time this
is printed he will be on the outside,
i It is not clear, from this distance, what the, contending
factions are fighting over, other than control. The leaders
' of the divisions are Colonel Fulgencio Batista, who is head
of the army, and Antonio Guiteras, minister of war, in the
old Grau San Martin cabinet. The latter is said to be encour
aging a general strike which was voted by leftist groups.
The new president, Carlos Helvia, former minister of
agriculture, a one-time graduate of Annapolis naval acade
my, is the foil between the two factions. Whether he will re
main merely a pawn to be swept off the board later on, as
Grau San Martin was, or whether he will accumulate force
enough to command the situation is one of the uncertainties
of the situation.
Pres. Roosevelt has announced a policy of non-intervention.
This county however has a moral as well as legal re
sponsibility under the Piatt amendment. We cannot let Cuba
relapse into anarchy, especially after our diplomatic pressure
was used to oust the ruling dictator, Machado, from his of
fice. Students at the university are starting a campaign to have mem
bership In the Associated Students optional, which would reduce
- the income considerably. At the same time an effort is made to pay
Coach CaJUson ,1000 a year more than his contract calls for. We
- thought after Spears and Schissler left the schools would be re
, lieved ot the burden of enormous salaries for coaches. In these times
when many of the instructors are working only on half pay and un
able to keep np their insurance it seems a poor time to overpay the
contract by $1000. As one of the board members asked, what if Cal
lison loses his games next year?

Salem in point of residence, came
near to stopping, and thus becom
ing one ot the victims.
As the reader has noted, two
of the prominent members ot the
Palmer company of the 18 47 cov
ered wagon train were John W.
Grim and Henderson Luelling.
Many others became leaders in
the territory and state.
Grim became a member ot the
first territorial legislature of
1849; was elected as Marion
county, commissioner acting as
probate judge in 1850. and re
elected in 1852; was in the state
senate from 1858 to 1866 and
from 1878 to 1882. His wife was
a Geer of the pioneer stock which
produced a governor and various
other high officials.
In the winter of 1855-6, when
Dr. Wm. Keil was practicing his
profession in Portland, and scouts
were going -over Oregon lqoklng
for the permanent western home
of his colony, he met Judge Grim
in that city. Grim was engaged in
selling apples there. The colony
leader, much interested, inquired
where the apples were grown. Be
ing informed, he asked:
"How much land of the quality
producing this fruit may be had?"
Judge Grim informed him that
many thousands of acres were
available. The Judge had secured
his start of apple and other fruit
trees from Henderson Luelling's
"traveling nursery," which was
the means ot making the begin
nings of the pioneer fruit growing
industry ot Oregon in a large way,
with good grafted varieties.
Luelling made boxes to fill the
bed of his ox drawn covered wag
on and filled them with a com
post principally ot charcoal and
earth in which he planted his
young trees, protecting them with
a strong frame. His companions
entering upon the 2000 mile trek
urged him to abandon the nur
sery, as making too heavy a load
for the plains journey.
Texas gives the country a new crop of "southwestern bad men".
Clyde Barrow, reputed killer and robber, is the new villain to ba
searched out tor his part in an escape at the Texas prison farm. The
country thought with the rounding up of the various gangs of kid
napers and killing oft ot other high-powered criminals in the south
: west that it would be spared ot high crimes tor a season. Apparently
the roll of bad men has a few names left; and doubtless new youth
are setting themselves up as imitators to lead lives ot crime.
.Walter Pierce urged currency inflation instead of more gov
ernment bonds to finance the president's farm debt program. James
Mott urged the Frailer bill which would reduce the interest rate to
14 a year. About the only difference between the president's pro
posal and Pierce's and Mott'a is the rate of acceleration before the
country lands in a heap.

The first apples brought $1

Oregon apples were sold in San
Francisco for $500. The following
year 40 bushels were grabbed up
at $2500 for the lot. In 1861 the
shipment ot apples from Oregon
amounted to orer 75,000 bushels.
Judge Grim's start came from the
traveling nursery, and he had by
IS 55-6 become a comparatively
considerable producer. Thus ap
ples led the colonists to Aurora.
Dr. Keil's followers were excep
tionally able orchardists. Nord
hoff, in his book on American
colonies found, in 1872, at Au
rora, "the most extensive orch
ards in the state."
Judge Grim became the life
long friend of Dr. Keil and his
colonists, and he was always wel
come among them. He was a
near neighbor, his donation cjaim
later being almost if not quite
surrounded by colony lands.
These were started with two quar
ter sections, at what was called
Aurora Mills (a saw and a grist
mill), with a down payment of
$1000 by Dr. Keil; and the acre
age grew in 25 years to 18,000.
Judge Grim's donation land
claim of 640 acres was a short
distance northwest of Hubbard
and southwest of Aurora. At one
time he had there 1500 acres of
land. Most of the original dona
tion claim acreage is still in the
ownership of members of the
Grim family. The. original Grim

and was so regarded. That was
not an unusual case in early Ore

evening when the two fellow trav

the Grim fireplace and recounted
their experience on the plains,
and after they had become prom

fellow, and did not realise that

character. To the youthful Jim,

was not for her, it was for Marthe.
But there were looks enough for
her. Half her little world, half the
world of bridge, had heard Eileen
Sycott's words. Half her world was
staring. Blair was brightening out
of momentary stupefaction. Sand
ers and the referee, countless otn
ers who had heard the amazing
words, accepted them at once, and
were now drawing swift conclu
sions. The silence lasted, lasted.
Why would no one speak? Just
then, someone did. It was Julian,
contained and cold, magnificent as
he looked at the bridling Mrs.

you've discovered our little secret."
"Your little secret!" said Marthe
"What's this, Haverholt?" de
manded Blair, attempting to lead
the pack. "What's this all about?"
Haverholt made no reply, not
just then. Unconcernedly he stroll

Patricia, to drop a careless arm
about her rigid shoulder.
"Shall we tell them?" he asked
it casually. "Shall we tell them
She must have nodded.
Haverholt said, his manner easy,
his arm still linked about the girl,
"We had hoped to make our own
announcement but unfortunately
Mrs. Sycott chose to anticipate us."
He sent that lady a contemptuous
glance, continued, "Yon have some
of the facts as it happens, Mrs.
Sycott, not all." He said, "It's quite
true that Patricia is not my niece."
"Not your niece I"
"It was, in a way, publicity,"
mused Julian, accepting the aston
ishment, the shock, without the
flicker of an eyelash to show that
he understood its meaning. "The
idea in the first place was pub
licity, my idea, I mean, that I
"should introduce this youngster as
my niece. I knew for instance that

dressing his enemy, "I knew that
you would never be half so im

player named Patricia Warren as

Now, isn't that the truth?"
Blair struggled, found no answer,
He knew, no one better, that a
scandalous exposure had taken
place. How to reap advantage from
the situation, how to say the damn
ing word, that was a different ques
tion, a question that Blair, eager
as he was, found himself incapable
of solving. Helpless, he realized
that sentiment was shifting. Some
how, Haverholt was wiggling out.
Julian's lightness was indecent, in
decent, but alas! effective. Blair
could have stamped his feet in
"Patricia was a genius when I
met her," Haverholt told them quite
simply, sparing an angelic smile
for the pop-eyed, purple Blair. "She

thing that clinched it was that he
really did not care. For their good
win and good opinion he eared
nothing. He made his own rules, he
always had. Let them like it. Let
them . not. It was all one to him.
He and Patricia belonged to a dif
ferent, a more exciting, a more
glamorous world, world where
conventions didnt matter. AH these
things were implicit in his intona
tions, in his gestures, in the tim
bre of his careless speech.

them all once more, "We've had a

Patricia, torn by a thousand con
flicting emotions, stared at the man
in mute astonishment. What next?
Julian drew her closer to his aide
and delivered his final bolt.
"Patricia's name will s o o n be
Haverholt in fact," he announced
it dearly, regarding the palely
beautiful girl with a look of com
plete devotion. "She has promised
to marry me. We had planned a
quiet ceremony for the seventh.
I'm afraid," he said in light, half
rueful complaint, "I'm Afraid it
cant be so quiet now." i
Like some helpless pawn in a
game of which she had no under
standing, Patricia accepted this as
part of tha fantastic madness of
the evening. She and Haverholt
were instantly surrounded. These
were people who prided themselves
upon sophistication; Haverholt had
presented them an opportunity to
show exactly how sophisticated
they really were. They seized that
opportunity, one and all, bubbling
with eagerness and with excite
ment and with a sense of being
part of what would certainly be
the most sensational romanoe of
the season. From niece to wife?
