Book Bill Is
Hot Debate Features
Morning Session of
t ree text books for students in
the elementary schools of Oregon
furnished material for a lengthy
debate In the senate this morning,
action on the question being de
ferred until this afternoon when all
members of the house will be pres
ent to record their sentiments.
The question came up on a di
"u report on senate bill num
ber 19 by Senator Banks. A ma
jurny report signed by Senacors
Hume. Eberhard and Edwards
favors passage of the bill. A minor
ity report signed by Senators Sta
ples and GUI opposes the move.
Material increase in taxes thru
the free text book proviso was ad
vanced by Staples and Gill in op
position to the bill.
Oregon had a chance to try out
free text books under an optional
law in effect from 1913 to 1915
and not six school districts elect
ed to avail themselves of the priv
ilege, Gill declared.
Banks, in urging support of his
measure, asked the senate to com
plete the job of free education. If
Irce anoo,a anu tree t
proper then free text books are
proper, he insisted. Pride prevent
ed many poor families from avail-
had been found to be twenty per
cent less than when purchased by
the various families in the dis
trict, he insisted in answering the
argument of higher costs.
That the Roosevelt coast high
way which met with such hearty
approval of the senate in its action
on the Norblad-Hall bill Wednes
day Is by no means an assured
fact as yet was indicated this morn

of the bill from the house was of
fered by Senator Vinton. Action on
Vinton's motion was deferred pend
ing the arrival of Senator Hail
and a bitter fight over the road
program in general and the coast
highway in particular Is expected
before the day is ended.
The first visible ripple on the
apparently peaceful waters on
which the coast highway was
launched Wednesday appeared
Thursday afternoon when Senator
Thomas made a bid for recognition
of the highway needs of the south

providing for the construction of
the Crater Lake highway and mak

H'm, It must be said they are
not. Secretary of State John L,
Lyons, from the records of
those convdeted of crimes in
New York state, has compiled
some mighty Interesting infor

friends you should know that
clerks and chauffeurs as a

who break the laws most fre

Editors move on the same plane
