M-mbers of the old Third Oregon
Infantry are being notified of a special
organization meeting to be held at the
ai-'iiory, Portland. Oregon, March 21.
10 20, at 8 o'clock in the evening with
the following aims in view: .
First To form a social organization'
of the veterans of the old Third Ore
gon Infantry known during U10 war ns
the 182nd infantry.
Second The selection of an appro
priate name for this organization.
Third The selection of temporary
officers and the appointment of com
niltteey on constitution and bylaws.
.March 25 Is the third anniversary of
the entry of the guard Into the nation
al forces of the I'lilied States during
the recent war. For the program on
the above date, a committee Is work
ing upon refreshment and entertain
to a host of newspaper and moving
picture operators who boarded the
French liner LaSavoie to obtain their
first view of the holder of the Euro
pean heavyweight championship and
the pugilistic sensation of a decade.
The first impressiono f Carpentier was
far different than mr,4ht have been
expected of a heavyweight boxer and
veteran of four years of wortd war
Of apparently slight physique and
weighing, according to his own state
ment but 17G pounds, the conqueror
of a long line of French and English
heavy weights resembled a bank
clerk on a vacation far more than
he did a pugilist whom boxin? en
thusiasts In all parts of the world are
eager to see him match skill and
power against the American fighter.
To Banquet and
"All work and no play makes Jack
a dull hoy" applies truly today and
Just as truly to Jack's dnddie. This
and other factors in true comradeship
between father and son were eniphtii
slued at the banquet given Mondny
niht at the First Christian church.
Nearly 1110 representative Sulem fath
ers and sons were present and also
there were a good many "adopted
fathers" for the occasion, members ot
I lie church brotherhood organization
entertaining the less fortunute young
sters. The guests of honor for the occasion
Were a group of blind boys from -the
school In this city. And how these
boys did enjoy the evening! And It
may well be. added right here that the
table manners of these lads compared
very favorably with those of some of
their better vislnned banquet fellows.
All of the talks were especially ap
plicable to Ihe spit of the' evening.
This was best shown by Rev. James
KUIn in bis invocation which Impress
ed nil present ns being a sincere prayer
for the boy life of the oily of Salem.
V. I. I'utnnm, pnstor of the
Kalow Christian church spoke briefly
but pointedly upon "Christian Educa
tion for Ihe Hv." The equal and well
balanced development of phylcal,
, mental and spiritual powers was urged
by t hp speaker as being the -ntest
factors in good citizenship. "A man
cannot possess a workable education,
urless he Is a Christian," said the
speaker, "for education Is only prac-
tlcable whtn It Is utilized In aiding
Rev, Ellja Stlvciw, "The Fighting
Parson" of Kugene' gave the main talk
of the evening, addressing the fathers
of Salem boys.
"The future of the country .depends
'on the coming generation," said Mr.
Stivers, "and with the co-operation of
the parents it Is the object of the
church to secure the proper environ
ment for them."
The "Fighting pnraan" pointed out
that while church attendance at col
lege towns similar to Eugene Is pood;1
that It Is noticeable that this attend
ance la confined to students who are
taking first year work. After the
freshman year, school functions, class
work and various other Interests, were
given as contributing to the lack ot
Interest In church affairs. Rev. Stiv
ers, who has recently recovered from
a very severe attack of Influenza, Is
pastor of the First Christian church
That T. K. McCroskey knows boys
and is able to work with them Is well
attested to by the success of his "Boys
Rifle Club" at the First Christian
church or this city. Mr. McCroskey
Bve a talk that appealed to all pres
inland Porter, pastor of the Salem
Christian church, urged that more
time and money and Christian effort
be Invested In boys. "The best enter
prise a church can engage In, Is nn
eternal fight for the protection of the
young people of the community" mat
ed Rev. Porler, ;
Judge Race, Ira Cave, E. Vf. Cooley
Rev. James Elvln and Rev. Tibbetts
gave worth-while talks dealing with
phases of boy life. The toast master
of the evening was O. J. Hull, athletic
ilieotor of the Y. M. C. A.
Th excellent banquet dinner was
served by the women of the First Chris
tlnh church. The church has a first
class equipment for these banquets.

Deals by Byron
Further details regarding the oper
ations bi Carlos L. Byron, now serv
ing sentence In the federal prison at
McNeils Island for using the mails
with Intent to defraud, are announced
from the office of the United States
district attorney in Portland and print
ed in the Oregon Journal, as follows!
"Carlos L. Byron. Oregon land
frauder now serving 15 months in fed
eral prison at McNeils Island, has a
lagh. All at the expense of 115 prom
lnent Salem ci'Jaens who are holding
the bag and wondering how in time
they were induced to part with ni
than $50,000 for nothing more than
promises of each obtaining a $25,000
"Long has the story been bottled up
In the land office and the United States
attorney's offices here. And not in a
thousand years would the Salem citi
Ills Life Work.
"Suave, convincing, talkative, Byron
entered the state capital several
months ago, even while under the sen
tence he is now serving. But what's
an impending 15 months when a man's
life work is the betterment of others?
"So they fell. According to details
collected here, City Superintendent of
Schools Todd gave Byron use of the
high school for a get-together meet
ing. Teachers, business and profes
sional men were invited to bring along
their cash to 'get in' on a real money
making scheme. .
"It is said that when Byron walked
out of the meeting he had about $15.
000 in cash. He gave receipts for the
money, and said that any time his cus
tomers were dissatisfied with their
bargains, he would repay, them.
All on the Quiet.
" 'But,' it is said he admonished,
'don't write anything aboyt this. The
land office doesn't want me to go about,
selling good timber this way, so If you
want to clinch the bargain, be still.- If
you want to know anything come and
see me or ask me to come up here.'
"Later, learning that government
agents were investigating his Salem
operations, Byron returned to his ci
ents and canceled the- receipts he had
already written, giving others in ex
change, it Is said.
"'1 he reason for this was that he hac.
given contracts agreeing to settle his
customer on a certain quarter seetiuu
of timber land for $500 down and $500
later. He was incautious enough to
issue several contracts for the same
quarter section. His new contract
mentioned no certain plot, it is said,
but agreed that the customer should
be satisfied with his buy.
Knew Hie Good Timber.
"Byron was enabled to sell his serv
ices only because certain timber ciaims
had been declared void, he said. He
knew where the good timber was,
would show It to clients, and then they
could file on it In the land office.
"So "nicely did his scheme work that
his clients refused to tell government
agents anything about his operations,
it is said. Several ot them disregard
ed advice of persons who had well
grounded beliefs as to Byron's opera'
Hons and said they would hold to their

university, A. A. Dee and City Superin
tendent of Schools Todd.
Todd (iocs to See Byron.
"Todd has just returned from Mc
Neils Island, where he conferred with
Byron about the lands. 'Byron it if
said promises to repay everyone.
"When up for commitment in United
States district court here several days
ago, Byron's attorney asked for a brief
extension of time to allow his client
opportunity to settle business affairs,
among them these Salem matters.
However, the request was not gramea.
" 'But,' said a government official,
they seem to have a fat chance to get
their money back. He declared Chas.
Degraff of the Portland Trust com
pany has had a judgment against
Byron for three years, and has not
been able to colject yet."
