now is abnormal the committee says:
"Abnormal it certainly is la many re
spects. Prices are very high; there
has been great expansion of bank
credit; extravagant expenditure, both
public and private, is found on every

port trade is likely to suffer curtail

pected a violent drop in prices and a
crisis in ill 9. Today there seems to
be less reason for expecting such de

Cambridge, Mass., Teb. 3. The
Harvard committee on economic re
search, appointed by Harvard unlr
versity to make special studies of eco

that the United States may expect a
check in the upward movement of
prices and of business activity, which
has been in progress since last April
and perhups drop in prices. At the
present time, however, the committer
states, and on the basis of the No

would be premature to conclude that
a violent recession in commodity pri
ces is probable.
KiiiiKO In Wide.
The committee was appointed by
Harvard university in 1917 to assist
In the solution of the fundamental
economic problems which underlie
modern commerce and finance. It
provides statistical information to
federal reserve banks, for banking
houses and large corporations and in
cludes among its publications a re
view of economic statistics which con

The committee bases its present
forecast upon statistical material rep
resenting the decline in the New York
bank clearings, the volume of sales
on the New York Stock Exchange, the
prices of industrial stocks, and analy
sis of the banking and trade situation
domestic and foreign.
Professor Warren M. Persons, edit

In a recent Capital Journal news
story concerning an answer filed by
Edward L. Hill, January 1. 1919, to ac
cusations made by Mrs. Hill in her
suit for divorce, by a clerical error, P.
W. Proctor, Downer Halferty, Clyde
Claggett and F. M. Lick are named in
allegations of adultry made by Mr. Hill
against his wife. ' Otto Beatty and
John Ratzbure are accused in thi re
spect by Mr. Hill, but the four men
tirst named are merely mentioned as
men whom Mrs. Hill is charged of hav
ing "courted" or having "clandestinly
The minor allegations embraced in
Mr. Hill's answer are covered n fol
lows and do not contain any charges
of adultry concerning Mrs. Hill and
the four men named:
In naming Proctor, Mr. Hill's com
plaint states that Mrs. Hill "developed
an attachment and a fodness for one
F. W. Proctor, a married man who
was an employs of defendant (Hill),
and received and encouraged atten
tions from him, and accepted presents
from him over the protests of defend
ant, and that defendant was obliged to
discharge said Proctor from his em
ploy." The answer further charges
that Mrs. Hill received letters from
Proctor "which contained the most en
dearing terms and showed a great mu
tual attachment," and that one of
Hill's reasons for . coming to Oregon
was to prevent said Proctor from
breaking up" Hill's home.
The answer further alleges that Mrs.
Hill "bestowed her attentions upon one
Downer Halferty" a neighbor, that she
"visited said Halfertv at hl nomA nnri
induced him to visit hen at her home
until the conduct of said parties be
came a public scandal In the neighbor
hood," That since 1913, "she has en
deavored tu, and has attracted the at
tentions of numerous men, other than
those named and has couted such man
in public and private and had clandes
tinely visited such men and induced
them to visit her at her said home, and
other places, such men being Clady
Claggett, F. M. Lick and other un
known to defandant (Hill)."
Mr. Hill's specific charges concern
ing Mrs. Hill's relation with Ratzburg
and Beatty, are contained in a page
