William H. Avery, local agent for

effect an agreement with the Southern

proposal is considered possible.

Lacks Brains Ever Since

Washington, Jan. 21. The principal
fault of the administration naval pro
gram was designated by Republican ex
Secrctary of the Navy Georgo Von L.
Meyer today before the National Secur
ity Congress as an absence of brain.
President Charles Curtis of tho Inter
national Curtis Marine Turbine com
pany, insisted that more ships are need
ed, and he said it is cheaper to build
them in private yards, than in govern
ment yards, an apparent saving, due to
faulty government bookkeeping, not
withstanding. President P. Ross, of the National
Marino league, pleaded for an adequate
American merchant marine as a second
"It is a rare exception," said Meyer,
"for an American warship to havo a
full complement. At present wo arc
35,000 men short.
"The torpedo boat destroyers of tho
Atlantic service are so c'ort that only
20 of them remain in active service,

rines are unfit lor. service. As for a
war basis, we are short 2,000 officers
even after employing the retired list.

there is no competent military organiza

South Bottom, Ore., Jan. 21. Fears
have been entertained by loganberry
growers that tho low temperature dur
ing the 1-ite storm has resulted in kill
ing the vines. The record of the logan
berry is that the vine will enduro zero
temperature if matured before entering
winter. As the dry senson Inst inn
thoroughly hardened off the vino it is
not likely that any considerable injury
has been done except a possible slight
freezing back of the ends. It is safe
to say that neirly one third of tho
vines of tho total loganberry acreage

That Willamtle is known in the east

kind in the country, was totally
destroyed by fire Monday evening, with
practically nil of the furnishings. The
