Rhea Luper, state engineer, received a letter from the federal power commission at Washington to the effect that the license to the Call fornia-Oregon Power company for rights of way along the Klamath river has not been granted as indicated in recent press reports. The federal power commission ex plained that the license has been drafted and is now awaiting further disposition. Even though the license was issued, it would not be effective until such time as water power ap propriations are granted by the state Luper said. The power company, in its applica tions filed with both the state and the federal, power commission, sought the development of water power at seven sites along the Klamath river be tween what is known as the Grant site and the California line. Luper, in a statement issued a week ago, said that no more important water appli cations would be granted until after the regular legislative session in Jan uary. ' The statement was issued by Luper in connection with demands for a spe cial session of the legislature to con sider the enactment of laws which would withdraw from appropriation all important water power sites in Oregon. The Oregon-California Power com pany also has filed on the water of the North Umpqua river and Clear water lake in Douglas county, but no action has been taken on these appli cations. Luper declared that he was not surprised at the information received from the federal power commission, for the reason that it has not been the practice of the government to is sue licenses until after water appro priations have been authorized by the state. . " ". ' , '. Love Scales Tradition , and Indiana Man Wins New York. Miss Marjorie Mairs, 21-year-old daughter of bluest Knick erbocker blood, was persuaded that tradition outweighs love and outlasts it. She announced her engagement to the equally blue-blooded : son of a Dutch diplomat who occupies a social position a girl of her birth and breed ing would be proud to grace. Then she began thinking of a young man from South Bend, Ind., who worked in Wall street for $75 a week, and the diplomatic circle became a high stone wall over which youth and love dared her to climb to freedom. Marjorie scaled the wall and joined Martin Henry, the Wall-street clerk, for a midnight wedding in the best "movie" manner. There was the duce to pay when Marjorie brought her stalwart Indianan home and told the Knickerbocker Mairs about it, but Mrs. Martin Henry, says she is happy and there's no use of her parents talking annulment or any such non sense. She is in love to stay, and so is Martin. PORTLAND BOY GETS pf1313 T. S. 0. S. RADIO CALL Eighteen Year Old Oper ator Relates Rescue of Ship Passengers.

Prick's Metal Weather Stripping is Best Typewriter Repairing Have Your Typewriter Cleaned and Overhauled During Vacation Terms Reasonable Telephone $72 Coad'g Typewriter Shop 109 W Main St Walla WalU The Morning Oregonian relates the following account of the 750 mile res cue dash of the steamship Ventura to rescue the passengers of the ill fa ted Tahiti in the South Pacific. Out of the ether came the call: "S. S. Tahiti sinking in south Pacific." An 18-year-old boy, radio operator on duty in the radio room of the steam ship Ventura, that was returning from Sydney to San Francisco, heard it. With a stub of lead pencil upon a sheet of scrap paper, he put the mes sage down. Then followed one of the most dramatic deep-sea rescues of re cent years. More than 270 lives were saved; none was lost. The newspapers devoted columns to the story. It hap pened only last month. The 18-year-old boy was a Portland lad. His name is Merwin Jones, and this week he is re-entering Washing ton high school to complete his edu cation, r ; It was last March that Merwin, de termined to see a bit of this old world, pulled out of high school and went ad venturing. , It was Saturday night that he came home to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Jones, 2069 i East Taylor streets. "Adventure?" echoed Merwin to a question. "A bellyful of itl Believe me, home looks mighty good again." From a radio station at Suva, on the far-away Fiji islands, Came the alarm. Merwin Jones, head phones to his ears, jerked to attention in the radio room of the Ventura. He knew the Tahiti was a passenger vessel. He knew what it meant when the wire less said: "No. 4 hold and engine room filling." He knew, also, that his ves sel was 750 miles away and the near est available ship of any consequence, Merwin's captain got that message in a hurry. Followed then a .sudden change of course, a lashing of fires in the stoking room, a bigger head of steam in the boilers. The Ventura was off to the rescue! ; At her utmost speed, 16 knots an hour, she plowed her way through the blue waters of the Pacific. Off the usual steamer lanes in practical ly no time at all, the gallant Ven tura was dodging treacherous shoals, hidden reefs, in her "across-country dash to save almost 300 human lives. And in her radio room sat Merwin, reaching into the ether to gather ad ditional bits of necessary yes, vital information. From the strickenTa hiti, where radio operators worked with utmost calmness, came frequent changes of position. It was hard for her officers to determine their exact location, it seemed. Hour by hour the Ventura plunged on, shifting her course with each succeeding message. First word had been received the morning of August 15. Finally the Ventura got within radio range of the Tahiti herself. "Those British boys in the radio room were exchanging wisecracks with us as we'd acknowl edge their SOS calls," commented Merwin. It was at 10 o'clock on the morning of August 17, two days later that the Ventura finally arrived alongside the helpless Tahiti. "We got 'em all aboard safely, said Merwin, "except that the Tahiti's fourth officer fell in the water from a lifeboat, and got wet. He was steer iwr the lifeboat with an oar, and the oar broke, throwing him into the ocean. The only fatality was the death of somebody's pet canary. We got off all the first-class mail, too, and about $25,000 in gold bullion. Every thing else went down when the Ta hiti, about 4 o'clock in the aiternoon of the 17th, suddenly stood on end and took the long dive." Merwin is full of praise for the' Ta hiti's crew. "They were wonderful," he said. "Her radio operators main tained utmost coolness. 'It's just like a movie' they radioed to us, as we hove in sight. And believe me, we were welcome. Even the stewards had been doing yoeman service at the pumps, fighting to keep the water down inside her. Once they had the engine room practically dry, but the sea beat 'em again. "No one knows yet Just what caus ed the disaster, but it is believed that the propeller shaft broke, twisted at one end, and that twisted end, re volving at a rapid rate of speed, tore a hole near her stern before they could stop the engines." Trying Out Wheat In order to try out the idea common among many fanners that an increase in yield may be obtained by bringing wheat from the higher to the lower altitudes, Harry Turner of Heppner has purchased a truck load of Hy brid 128 wheat from H. H. Huron, a certified wheat grower of Imbler, and will sow this wheat along side of local grown certified Hybrid wheat. A check on yields will be made at har vest time next year by County Agent C. W.

For 51 years Anton and Anastasia Hahn lived hand in hand. They died the same way. Anton and Anastasia met and loved in their youth. They married and had six children. The children loved their parents but they, too, grew up and left the home nest to found homes of their own. Anton and Anastasia were welcome in the homes of the flown nestlings. They went from one to the other, but somehow it was not the same. Stran gers were there. The nestlings had other interests, other loyalties. They could no longer "do" except in loving kindness, for the children. Time is that way cruel. Anton and Anastasia went to live with a daughter, Mrs. Rose Harmon, in the Bronx, crowded off-shoot of the great city of New York. Rose was kind to them. She loved them sin cerely. So did the other five nest lings. But the doctor told Anton that Anastasia's heart, which had been large enough to encompass their world, had slowed its beat. The ver dict of the doctor laid an icy hand on Anton's heart. Suppose Anastasia should go and leave him with the nestlings and the strangers? Time is merciless. Anton was 78. Anastasia was 74. Daughter Rose thought she would like to go to the beach for a day's outing. She invited Anton and Anastasia to come along. There isn't much fun for a 74-year-old mother with a bad heart and a 78-year-old father with a fearful sense of approaching loss, at a beach. Anton and Anastasia said they would rather remain at home together. When Rose, the nestling, had gone for her holiday, Anton and Anastasia took stock of themselves. What was leftT They had lived, loved, created. They were tired a little in the way, cerhans thou eh none 01 the nestlings would admit it. Eternity was before them together. They had earned that. Eternity, without the petty bur dens of a material earth that makes old people feel in the way. Anton stuffed the crevices in the nestling Rose's home and turned on the gas. He pinned a $1 bill to a farewell not to "pay for the gas," then Anton took Anastasia's band and they set forth into eternity together. Is Against Grange Bill W. S.
