According to officials of the Salem

done, they say, it may not be necessary
to shut any of them off.

His long. association with the de

Kozer was born in Cumberland

in the town of his birth, coming to
Oregon in June, 1890 nnd locating
permanently in Astoria where he still
maintains his residence.
"I have always believed that a

TO WITNESS EOOTBALL
Salem, like most of the other towns
of' the Willamette valley, is to be well
represented nt the University of Oregon-Washington
State college football
game in Portland, Saturday afternoon.
From all indications there will be ful
ly 1000 fans of the capital city in the
bleachers and grandstand when Ref
eree George Varnell sounds the whistle
that will send the premier teams of the
west into the battle which will decide
the championship of the Pacific coast
and entitle the winner to represent this
section of the country against the lead
ing Atlantic coast team in Pasadena,
on New Year's day. .
The local fans, traveling both by
auto and train, are making the trip to
the metropolis with the expectation of
seeing one of the hardest fought games
in gridiron and there is little likelihood
of them being disappointed. '
There are a few over-optimistic lov
ers of the sport who are predicting
that the game will go to a scoreless tie,
but there is little in the way oi icts
to substatKte such dope. Both teams

ing backfie'.ds which should make fre
quent yardaga through the best of
lines, and. .mould cither be unable to
buck their way to at least one touch

to find their way across the chalk line
via the end and aerial route.
Bear stories" are, of course, to be
expected from coaches of the type of
.Hunting and Welch and they are llv

this respect. But neither team will go

Indianapolis, Ind., Nov'." 7. The cri
sis in the coal strike' will be reached
tomorrow, in the opinion of govern

Rulings made by Judge Anderson on
injunction proceedings which will be
argued starting at 19 o'clock tomor

union leaders know just where they

general, was expected to arrive here
today to confer with his assistants re
garding the answer they will make to
the petition asking dissolution of the
restraining order, filed by union attor
neys. Dissolution Sought. v( "
Miners attorneys today prepared
briefs which they: will submit to back
up their appeal for dissolution.
If the Judge's ruling on the dissolu
tion petition is unfavorable to the min
ers, the fight will then center oh the
government's appeal for a court order
demanding recall of the strike order by
union officials. - -
This will be the most critical point In
the whole proceedings, attorneys for
both sides agreed. Miners leaders believe-
they have shown that the men
will strike despite the court's restrain
ing order preventing union officials
from directing . the strike. Govern
ment representatives . believe if they
have the additional advantage of
withdrawal of the strike order, they
will be able to Induce the men to re
turn to work. , .
Recall Not Possible.
Attorneys for the union will contend
the union officials acted merely as
agents of the Cleveland convention in
issuing the strike order and are power
less to recall it. .... .;
tin case the injuncjjon is granted,
miners representativeswill ask that it
be modified so . that strike benefits
may be paid.
Reports were circulated here today
that Acting President John L. Lewis
of the United Mine Workers was in
communication with cabinet officials
regarding a possible basis for strike

ganization simply because it will help
the people in his employ to become
better salespeople thereby causing
them to take more Interest ln seeing
their employer's business prosper."
;When such a club is formed, each

Hitch cocjk Announces Stand
Washington, Nov. 7. After a conference with President Wil-,
son today Senator Hitchcock, administration leader, declared that
his forces in the senate would vote against any resolution on peace
treaty ratification if certain of . the republican reservations in"
their present form are attached to it. .
He did not say which reservations
were epecilfcally objected to.
Wilson, Hitchcock said, would be
entirely satlfied with any reservation
that Hitchcock felt justified ln ac
cepting, and which did not nullify any
provisions of the league of nations.
The president, according to - Hitch
cock, expressed pleasure at the defeat
of amendments to the treaty.
Hitchcock declared his belief that
the resolution of ratification aa offered
by Senator Lodge, will be defeated.
He then will offer a resolution ap
proved by the administration, ' If this
is defeated, he said he believes the
democrats who favor the treaty and
the republicans who favor it, can, ln
conference, agree on a resolution rati
fication. Hitchcock said he found Wilson
"The president sat propped up with
pillows throughout the interview,"
Hitchcock said. "He seemed keenly
interested, putting and answering
questions with his characteristic ener
gy." Upon his return to the capital,
Hitchcock said: 1
Lodge Proposal Condemned
"The president indicated that any
compromise we thought necessary to
secure ratification, provided., it did
not destroy the treaty terms, would be
satisfactory." He. added that Wilson
had expressed complete willingness
to leave the treaty fight in the hands
of his friends in the .senate and ap
proved the action of administration
senators thus far.
Wilson agreed with Hitchcock, the
senator said, that the pending Lodge
reservations would be "destructive"
nnd therefore unacceptable.
Hitchcock Informed the president
that the Lodge "destructive" reserva
tions probably would muster forty
nine votes, but would not receive the
necessary two thirds when they come
before the senate from the commit
tee of the whcjle.
Hitchcock outlined his plan of ac
tion ln detail for the president's ap
proval. When the Lodge reservations
are defeated, Hitchcock will move un
qualified ratification,, which, he add
ed, probably will not receive the nec
essary two thirds, r ' , . ,
Interpretative reservations will then
be offered, according to Hitchcock
will get a larger vote but probably
not the two thirds and the treaty will
then be deadlocked.
