JnMGerman Plea For Right
San Francisco. Mar. 31. Herbert
Hoover hag placed himself before re
publicans of the cduntry. an avowed
candidate for their presidential 'nom
ination, though a receptive one only.
In a telegram to the Hoover republi
can club of California, he announc
ed last night that recent developments
in the peace treaty situation, "stag
nation" In adjustment of the coun
try's economic problems and urgent
representations concerning the situ
ation in California had impelled him
to confirm the action "my repuo.l
can friends have already taken with
out consulting me."
The former food administrator re
iterated his declaration that he would
not seek the nomination, declaring he
would accept It only "If It Is felt the
issues necessitate It and it is demand
ed ot me. Classifying himself as
"naturally affiliated wHJh the inde
pendent element of the republican
party." he declared that as conditions
precedent to his support of that par
ty in the coming campaign it mujt
adopt a "forward looking, liberal, cm
structive platform on the treaty anO
on our economic Issues, propose
measures for sound business adminis
tration of the country, "be neither
reactionary nor radical In its approach
to our great domestic questions," and
be "backed by men who assume con
summation of these policies."
Declares for League
Mr. Hoover declared for adoption
of the peace treaty, including the
league of nations covenant With res
ervations, "safeguarding American
traditions and interests," as opposed
to the extreme view against any lea
gue at all. He asserted he stood as far
from President Wilson's "extreme pt
sition on his participation In purely
European affairs," as he did from
complete rejection of the league.
Divorce Will be
Probed is Report
Reno, Nev Mar. 81 The entire rec
ord of the Mary Plckford divorce case
is under a close investigation by Rob
ert Richards, deputy attorney general
of Nevada, for the purpose of ascertain
ing whether It holas any irregularities
or evidence of fraud or collusion that
will justify an action being taken to
"set the decree aside. The deputy
torney general said this morning that
when his investigations are concluded
action undoubtedly will be taken by
the state in case the facts justify it.
"Just at this time," said the deputy
attorney general, "I am unable to say
what will develop in the Plckford case
because the investigation I am mak
ing has not been completed. I am go
ing over the entire record of the case
and if there are irregularities or any
evidence that a fraud was worked on
the court or that there was collusion,
some action undoubtedly will be taken
to set the decree aside."

$100,000 Hospital Fund Can be Raised
In 2 Hours If Every Citizen Will Make
Small Contribution, Figures ShowToday
Of the approximate 20,000 citizens
in Salem only 302 have subscribed to !
the Salem General hospital fund of
$100,000, It was shown by reports
compiled today at campaign head
quarters in the Commercial club. The
302 subscribers have raised only $53,
000, leaving $22,000 yet to be raised
to complete $75,000 when Marion
county has agreed to donate 825,000
to make up the complete, quota.
These figures, shown in indisput
able retrospect, plainly show how
quickly the remaining $22,000 deficit
may be raised here if the remaining
19.698 people in Salem would give
little more than $1 each.
1000 Subscribers Needed
Believing that all persons in Salem
will not be able to donate even $1 the
hospital campaign committee today
was pressing its campaign for 1000
donars of $10 each, feeling that sure
ly one of the 19 thousand persons
who have not yet subscribed will do
nate that small amount.
Definite steps toward combing the
city for the 1000 subscribers had not.
been decided upon up to noon today,
although the despatchment of about
three capable solicitors to make ev

The $1000 expected from the Timber

made in that union's circles to raise
that amount. When final compilation
Is made of the remaining donations
of labor oraaniations in the city it is
expected that $2000 more will be
added to the total.
In Cattle Case

This quotation from the opinion
rendered by Justice Bennett of tin
Oregon supreme court, Tuesday, in
his opinion in the case of the State
vs W. Z.. Moss is regarded by Attor
ney General Brown as setting a new
and highly important interpretation
upon the state law governing tin
ownership of cattle and under which
prosecutions for cattle stealing must
be conducted In this state.
"The first brand establishes own
ership at one time and we think th
presumption of continuance should
apply until a change of ownership or
other evidence of ownership Is shown"
Justice Bennett's opinion reads.
"It is much like proof of owner
ship by possession. It is well settled
that where two parties depend upon
possession of ownership the older
possession prevails over present or
t l m iDoaealnn."

its head and ot the policy he pursued
as the result of those characteristics,'
Read Admiral Bradley A. Flske, re
tired, declared today before the Ben-
ate committee Investigating the nnvy'k
conduct of the war,
"To prevent uupreparednewi in the
future," Admiral Fiske said, "the
most important step is for the public
to insist that the man at the head of
the navy shall be imbued with the
spirit of the navy, highly educated
open minded and acquainted with the
principles on which navut prepared
ness is based and by following which
preparedness can be secured,"
Admiral Flake was aide for opera
tions and senior adviser to the secre
tary of the navy for sevcrui years be
fore the United States entered the war,
but resigned as aide after differences
with the secretary regarding the aboli
tion of wine on warships and over pre
paredness. The admiral told the committee the
navy was not only unprepared for war
from 1916 to 1917 from a standpoint
of material and personnel, but lacked
any well prepared war plan. It was
not until August 1, 1917, that the
navy department established an organ
ization for the exclusive duty of mak
ing plans for war, he said, although
lie and other officers had urged suuii
an organization for several years.
