Dallr.s. Or., May 5. Carl B. Fenton,
son of Mr. und Mrs. H. h, Kenton of
this city, who recently returned lo
tiouip acre alter two years of service
with company L of the. Itilst Infantry,
died Hntiirday of meningilies, following
an attack of that deadly disease, jw
had been sick for about two weks.
Fenton wr.s L'8 yenrs old at the time
of his denth. As a student In the Uni
versity of Oregon and earlier in Dallas
college, Mr. Fenton was active in ath
letics. He wus a member of the famous
all stnr basketball teum turned out by
Dallas college which toured the country,
winning all games. At Oregon lie whs
fullback four years on the football ele
ven, played first base on the baseball
(nine und was center on the Lemon Yel
low basketball team.
Young Fenton entered the University
of Oregon in 1!11 and gindunted in
1011 with hijh honors, being designated
as a Friar, the highest honor which
can be conferred upon a senior student
at the state university. He was a mem
ber of the Beta Tlietr. Pi fraternity
and during his college years took an ac
tive part in administering student af
fairs. ni V
Following his graduation from tlie

At the same time it was learned
that the "big three'1 is considering a
plan for making Fiume a free port ,
J under the control of the league of na
tions, for a period of three years.
While the Italians ami Jugo-Slavs
thus would enjoy tqual fommeTc.ial
privileges, in the disputed city dining
this period work would be hurried on
construction of another port for the
Jugoslavs on the Dalmatian coast. At
the expiration of the three years, it is
assumed Fiume would be formally an
nexed to Italy.
While thij does not positively
assure Italy's immediate resumption of
hi r place in the pence conference, it is
believed this will follow, in view of
the apparently acceptable comprnmiso
formulated by the "hij three," to
gether with the spirit of conciliation
evinced by both the Italians and the
allies in the pnst fe wdays.
The Italians officially announced
(heir temporary withdrawal from the
peace conference April 2'!. following
publication of the statement by lres
ident Wilson dn which he dec'ared that
he would not consent to Italy having
Fiume. inasmuch as such a concession
would be in violation of the armistice
terms and the fourteen principles.
lteturniiig to Home, Orlando laid
his case before the Italian parliament
and was given a vote ff confidence.
Since that time unofficial reports Have
been received of overtures by both
Italy and the allies toward getting to
gether on a common basis that would
