Deductions Can't
Come From State's
Bridge Profits
No deductions can be made from
the state's share of the profits in
the operation of the interstate
bridge across the Columbia river
between Multnomah county And
Clarke county, Wash., according to
an opinion prepared by Attorney
General VanWinkle.
The law provides, Van Winkle
points out, that before the profits
for the operation are declared the
commissioners shall make allow
ance for necessary repairs to the
bridge after which the net profits
shall be divided 25 percent to
Multnomah county and 75 percent
to the state.
Gas Company Asks
To Increase Rates
Authority to increase rates on gas
to its patrons at Marshfield, North
Bend, Eugene and Springfield is
sought by the Mountain States Pow
er company in an application filed
with the public service commission
this mtirning. In the case of Marsh
field and North Bend it is proposed
to increase the rate tun the'first 400
cubic feet from one dollar to $1.50
per thousand cubic feet. The pro
posed rates for Eugene and Spring
field patrons, is $1.25 per thousand
cubic feet on the first 300 cubic
feet or less, aa against a rata of 75
cents in effect now. The proposed
increases on additional gas is lesa
radical than that on the original

The matter of uniform awards
for all athletics at Willamette unl-
versity came up for final decision
Tuesday In student body meeting
and was defeated by a small major
ity. The proposed amendment has
been before the students for some
time, and has aroused spirited dis
cussion. The defat of the proposed amend
ment leaves the awards as they
were last year, but it is thought
that a new amendment will be
proposed giving basketball and
baseball men the same size letter
as is awarded for football, and
designating track and tennis as
minor sports, with a small award.
The clause providing white
sweaters with W. U. monogram to
be provided for yell king"and crown

ment to the constitution providing
a new plan for handling funds ac
cruing from games.
The desired change in the type
of sweater, incorporated in the
award amendment, was detected
with it, and this matter is referred
back to the revision committee.

Army Unit
Ordered To
Second Division Will
Be Recruited to Full
Strength; Reason is
Washington, Nov. 9. Telegra
phic orders were sent today to the
army recruiting stations to recruit
the second division to 'its full
strength immediately. It was ex
plained at the war department that
under the national defense act one
division of the army must be kept
at full strength and that the sec
ond had been selected as the unit.
The division, which is stationed
at Camp Travis, Texas, is 6000
short of its full strength and the
war department said that the re
cruiting service never before in
time of peace had been given a sim
ilar task.
Major General James G. Hard
bord, who was General Pershing's
first chief of staff in France, com
mands the division.
Relics Found by
Road Builders
Held Priceless
The Dalles, Or., Nov. 9. That
important archaeological secrets of
great value are still probably con
tained in the earth at Big Eddy,
near Celilo, and that the matter of
further excavation will be taken
up without further delay was the
statement today of George H.
Himes, curator and assistant secre
tary of the Oregon Historical so
ciety, who yesterday made a com
plete investigation of the relics
thus far uncovered and also of the
site where they are being found.
Mr. Himes said that the histori
cal society had no funds with which
to conduct private excavations, but
that he would endeavor to have the
state highway commislson complete
the excavations and turn the re
sults over to that body for scientific
Date Back Ages.
lne relics found thus far are
hundreds and perhaps thousands of
years old, according to Mr. Himes
and many of them are of great
archaelogical value. Many spec!
mens, of which the historical so
ciety has no copy, have been un
covered thus far, Mr. Himes said.
Stone weapons, idols, paint pots
and various implements were
shown to Himes as evidence of the
discoveries already made. Many of
these relics are duplicated at the
historical society museum, but
many others are entirely new and
of great archaeological importance,
Himes said. He was not interested
in a stone image of what is pre
sumed to be the sun, which was un
earthed by workmen grading the
Columbia river highway at this
point. The curio is believed to
have been worshipped as one of the
idols of the ancient race.
Himes said that he is convinced
that a race of people inhabitated
the northwest prior to the time of
the Indians and that the Indians
copied their stone weapons and im
plements from their pre historic

New York, Nov. 9. Raw sugar

But we'll let that pass.
Yesterday "Bill" Busick asked a representative of The Capital
Journal to guess at the ratio of the advertisements turned m from
The Journal and it morning contemporary respectively.
The Journal man was consen ative,
"I would say." he guessed, "that you got two Capital Journal
advertisements for every one from the morning paper."
fr RuHink smiled.
"You lose." he replied. "For every advertisement
ceived from tm morning paper, we got 1 from The
Journal. The ratio was IS to one."
Superlative!, might be used but we'll let that pass.

Take Drop
Rochester, N. Y.. Nov. 9. A re
duction of 33 1-3 per cent in the
wholesale price of clothing is an
nounced by one of Rochester's
largest clothing manufacturing con
cerns. The reduction is effective
from November 1, and applies to
suits and overcoats. It is said the
reduction, which is in addition to
the usual cash discount of 7 per
cent, represents a cut from $33, the
opening fall wholesale price, to ap
proximately $20.
Chicago, Nov. 9. Men's clothing
for immediately delivery was of
fered today at prices ten to fifty
per cent below present wholesale
prices. Goods for spring and sum
mer delivery were shown at prices
10 to 33 1-3 per cent under those
of a year ago. Men's shirts and
similar articles were shown at
greatly reduced prices.

the formation of a new twelve club league.
President Johnson declared that clubs would be established
in Chicago, Boston and New York next season to take the
places of the clubs that have joined the "new national
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 9. War
clouds looked dark for the propo
nents of the Lasker plan for base
ball reorganization when the presi
dents and club owners of the twen-
tyone minor leagues of the nations
met in convention here today to
vote on the proposed civilian tri
bunal as the supreme governing
body of organized baseball.
When the committee of three ap
pointed by the "new national
league" organized yesterday in Chi
cago, arrived here to present the
Lasker plan for the consideration
of the minor leaguers, Indications
were that it would be overwhelm
ingly defeated. The minor league
leaders declared themselves cap
able of settling their own disputes
and conducting their own affairs.
Opposition Voiced.
Thomas J. Hickey, president of
the American association: David L.
Fultz, head of the International
league, and A. R. Tearney, presi
dent of the Western and Three I
leagues, recognized leaders in mi
nor league affairs, were unanimous
in expressing their disapproval ot
the Lasker plan.
"To have the major leagues se
lect the officials to govern us,
would be merely to go back to the
old system from which the minors
withdrew last winter," President
Hickey said.
"The major leagues do not have
to select the members of the new
corn mislson for ua. We are capable
of taking care of our own affairs.
Twenty-one minor leagues finished
the 1920 season and thirty-seven
are ready to start next season.

we employ more players tunii
do the major leagues combined ;
we have at least as much money
Invested and never will consent to
a scheme by which we would have
no voice in the selection of the man
to handle our affairs."
With a revolutionary movement
sweeping through the major
leagues, the minor leaguers them
selves started a campaign involving
a shakeup within their own organ
The movement contemplated the
removal of John H. icarrell of Au
burn, N. Y., who has been secretary
and treasurer of the association
since its formation twenty years
ago and the election of M. H. Sex
ton of Rock Island, 111., as his suc
cessor, Sexton for a score of years has
been a dominant factor in minor
league affairs. For several years he
has been president of the National
Association of Minor league, ,an
honorary office without salary. His
supporters claim to have enough
votes to insure his re-election. It is
planned to vote him a salary of
$7500 and move minor league head
quarters from Auburn to Chicago.
