Oregon City, Aug. 6. When

and Mrs. W. W. Woodbeck were
motoring leisurely along the
streets upon which the public
market is situated in Seattle,
when, suddenly a huge truck, on
the driving seat of wiiich were
.two Japanese, swung directly in
front of them and a serious acci-
j dent avoided only by the quick
! handling of his own car by Mr.
: Edgar. Needless to say he was
peeved enough at that but to
make matters worse one of the
Japs let Mr, Edgar and party
have the full benefit of a rapid
flow of Japanese language that
sounded as thought it meant some
ii was me last straw.
Mr. Edgar jumped from the
car, threw off his coat, rolled up
his sleeves, saying that no Jap
could talk like that to an Ameri
can when he was around, and
started toward the truck but the
Jap, true to his inheritance, was
the quicker, rolling off of that
truck like a ball, he raced down
the side streets and all that Mr.
Edgar could see of him was
soles and heels of his shoes.
Action on the Japanese question

county's wheat, crop will exceed
the million bushel mark instead of
a total of 850,000 bushels as first
estimated. The increase in bushel
age becomes evident with the ar
rival of wheat in the mills and
warehouses. Harvesting is on in
full blast, headers working every
where and combines going in erme
instances. Binding is pretty vcll
The increased total is brought
about by a heavier fall wheac yield
than had been anticipated, and the
recent rain that added to I he
spring spring wheat situation. The
rain helped much of the wheal re
cover from the stem maggot and
what looked like almost total fail
ure three weeks ago now looms up
with 10 to 15 bushel prospects.
This improvement in the spring
wheat yield also boosted the coun ty
Another very encouraging lact
developed at the mills and ware
houses is that wheat coming la so
far weighs full 60 pounds and in
some instances a pound and a trac
tion more than that. This in itself
is a very important item.
Notwithstanding the injured
late spring wheat, and the sirull
acreage in fall wheat, the yield is
normal if a million bushels is the
crop. The best yield the valley
has ever given was a million and
a quarter bushels, and that in a
desirable year during the war

Booth Tarkington s
Book "Alice Adams
Booth Tarkington's "Alice Ad
ams" is a record of a girl's minor
tragedies; the tragedy of a dance
to a wall flower who was once a
belle, the tragedy of a forriial din
ner in her shabby home with with
ering seconds for flowers, a bung
ling maid hired for the occasion
and a father patently unaccustom
ed to a dress suit, the tragedy of
brave, foolish, little deceptions to
the man whom she seeks to at
tract, all these, though minor In
the perspective of a life of time,
arc bitterly poignant to the young.
Alice lives in one of the middle
western cities, lately overgrown
tovns, which Mr. Tarkington uses'
so often for settings. Attractive,!
pretty, almost beautiful, Alice is'
fighting hard to keep a place In
the society of wealth and leisure
which the city is rapidly develop
ing. But it is a losing struggle.
Her father, a kindly, simple drug
clerk, is unable to give her a beau
tiful home of the influence and
background which the other girls
have. She cannot entertain nor
dress us handsomely as her former
schoolmates. The boys who throng
ed her front porch have become
more sophisticate and her popu
larity has waned. Finally when the
desirable stranger whom she has
attracted discovers the pitiful lit
tle deceits with which she has
sought to camouflage her home
life, and the family descends ano
ther step in the social scale by
keeping roomers, Alice faces lifo
squarely for the first time. With
the same bright courage she sets
out to do her share in winning thu
family bread and butter.
Although Alice overshadows the
book, Mrs. Adams, the nagging
wife who blames her husband for
his failure and Walter, the Im
possible brother, are powerfully
Tarkington himself expresses
the motif of the book thus:
"Alice Adams is the story por
trait of a family, taking family to
express type as In 'The Magnifi
cent Ambersons' with a predomi
nant figure and one member of the
family as dramatic subject, the
'hero' or 'heroine'. In this story I
am still concerned with the great
flux, the current of American life
in which the families struggle, not
knowing the floods and droughts
themselves. The Adamses are al
ways partially submerged and get
only a glimmer of the material
prosperity for which families
