$164,430 were authorised by the state
emergency board at its meeting yester

adjourned the emergency board has
now authorized deficiencies whicn ag
The board did not allow all the re
quests presented. It turned down en
tirely a request from "the state lime
board for an additional $2000, this
board having been given $5000 a few
months ago, and it cut the penitentiary
appropriation from $40,000 to $35,000,
and took under advisement the request
of the Oregon Agricultural college for
funds to meet the emergency arising
from tho great enrollment of student
soldiers until the opinion of the attor
ney general can be obtained as to the
legality of allowing this request.
The request for funds for the O. A.
C. was presented by President W. J.
Kerr and J. K. Weatherfoid, presiiltnt
of the board of regents. President Kerr
asked for a total of $43,438 ta aid in
the construction of barracks, reriiodel

and providing additional equipment
' When members of the emergency
board o'bjocted to an item of $(W00 in

ing barracks' for the soldiers, President
Kerr volunteered to withdraw it from
his request and make cn-angements
with friends of the college to financo
this construction work until the leg
islature can make appropriation for
it. This left a sum of approximately
$.17,000 which President Kerr said the
college absolutely must have if it is
to perform the dirties asked of it by
tho war department and take care of
the students who are now on the cam
Members of the board, with the ex
ception of Senator Moser, expressed
their willingness to authorize the de

ly in favor of putting the matter up
to the. attorney general before any act
ion was takeu. Secretary of State 01
cott told them that he would issue no
certificates of indebtedness until after
the attorney general has passed on the
question. If the attorney general
opinion is favorable, tho board will be

MARSHAL FOCH STRIKES!
TO BRING WATERLOO
Planning For "Blow That WiD
Destroy Germany's Last
Yistage Of Hope.
Washington," Oct. 10. Foch is strik
ing to bring upon Germany a semb
lance of Waterloo to emphasize allied
determination for unqualified peace.
The spectacular victory on the west
front will carry to Germany more than
anything else to date the futility ot
her dreams of eonquest.
Napoleon, after two great disasters,
rose again and was not vanquished un
til his Waterloo. Germany must not be
given even the opportunity to rise
again in her military might, army men
Already the smashing has reached
the German people. According to re
ports to this government, public opin
ion, which was counting on a stop at
the Hindenburg line, "is seriously af
iected. " There is feverish recruiting
every where in, Germany.
All exempted are taken. Workmen
are replaced by prisoners, by Russians
and Poles veritable slaves and by
Belgian and French evaquees. It is re
ported that the allied bombardments
have maddened the people.
But air available advices of an 'au
thoritative kind indicate that elimina
tion of the evil genius, militarism, can
only be attained by absolute defeat
and Germany will only confess she is
vanquished when her people see close
at hand, on their own soil, the horrors
of war. ,
Military men are delighted over
the developments of the western battle
Some military men here believe that
Germany will answer President Wil
son's inquiry with an offer to with
draw from invaded territory. They say
that the German peace offer was the
result of the desperate situation in
which the boche found himself on the
west front and that he would like
nothing better than the chance to got
oat with an armistice. However mtre
acceptance of the armistice idea will
be insufficient for the present, for the
president left another stumbling block
in the path by his indirect notice that
he could not bargain with the Hohen
zollcrns. character of the information he is
From other sources, however, reports
accumulate that convicts at the prison
have been "bled" persistently under
the guise that it was necessary to pro
duce some money before they could hope
to get a parole. i u
While A. Sheridan and J. A. Ho
ran, the two guards at the prison, who
were charged with having connection
with this traffic in paroles, have been
discharged, suspicion is most striking
