! Bakeries May Still
Buy Flour la Oregon
Portland, Of., May 28. The state
food administrator's office today clear
ed up what has seemed to some to be au
inconsistency iu the rules for voluntary
guidance concerning this whcatlesE
week in Oregou.
The administration requested that all
retailers refuse to sell except to hospit
als, logging camps and bakeries. The
question was asked, why bakeries?
The administration explained that
flour rations for the bakers had been
set by the fi'dernl .Urease system, and
as this week's request is purely volun
tary, it would be impossible to go be
hind the license system. Also, it was ex
plained, to refuse to sell flour to the ba
kers would put them out of business
which would be poor policy.

Miss Lusk's Girlhood.
Portland, Or., May 28. A memory of
urace iiUSK s girlhood came to her de
Twenty two years ago the girl who ii
now being tried in Waukesha, Wis., for
the murder of Mrs. David Eoberts, was
a kindergarten teacher at tho age of
18. Strange actions by her then were
recalled today by J. F. Fuss who went
to school to the young teacher.
Fuss believes Grace Lusk to be suf
fering from the effects of an unfortun
ate incident in her early girlhood which
had such an effect on her that at times
she lost her self control.
"Three of us boys for some small of
fense wvre ordered to apologizo to Miss
Luek," said luss. "When we went to
her she asked us not to apologize, un
less we were sure we were guilty. Then
she told how shj herself had been forc
ed to apologize to a woman for some
thing she had not done.
" 'I shall never forget the woman
and shall always hate her for it,' 6he
cried. Then she burst into bitter, hys
terical crying from which she did not
recover for some time."
Fuss, who is employed in a shipyard
here, formerly was principal of the- high
school at Sussex, Wis., near Waukesha
He believes Miss Lusk is a victim of
repression as a result of that incident
iu childhood and that, as a result, could
not bo hflld responsible for unnatural
acts at certain critical moments.
