Thirteen hundred Armenian '.girls
were recently turned into the streets
of Constantinople in one week. They
had been carried off by the Turks dur
ing the war when their parents had
been massacred. They had been cruel
ly tattooed by their masters for pur
poses of identification, and many of
them were so young when taken away
that tbey have forgotten their own
The war work council of the Young
Women's Christian association has ap
preprinted $30,000 for reconstruction
work in Turkey to provide shelter and
training schools for these girls. A ser
vice center has been opened in Con
stantinople, where the girls may go for
assistance and for social life and rec
reation. Classes are held there for them in
subjects which they wish to learn, and
it is hoped that a certain amount of
industrial training can be given them
soon. Many of these girls work at card
ing wool and filling comforters with
wool while they are recovering from
their recent hardships.

Y. W. C A. work in Turkey, had spent
some years teaching in that country

There will bo ajo further, letting
down of the bars for tho admittance
into Oregon of gasoline of lower than
)6 degrees specific gravity, unless the
existence of an actual gasoline famine
should result in a demand from the con
sumer for such action. This was the
decision announced by W. A. Dalzell,
deputy sealer of weights and measures
following a conference in the execu
tive offices Monday afternoon, attend
ed by Governor Olcott, State Treasurer
Hoff, W. . Donaldson of the Stan
ard Oil company; V. .H Kelley of the.
Union Oil company; A. D, Parker of
the Associated Oil company and J. C.
Storey of tho Shell Oil company.
At a eonforence two weeks ago pe
mission was granted to the Standard
and Associated Oil companies to ship
in a supply of gasoline of a lower test
than the 56 degrees required by the
state law in order to meet an emergen-1
cy which was said to exist at that
time. Under this .permit the Standard
Oil company shipped into the state six
thousand barrels of gasoline testing
54.0 degrees which has been distribut
ed throughout tho state and used, ac
cording to the statement of r. DonM
aldson, without any complaint on the
part of the-consumer who was unable
to detect any difference in tho qual
ity of the oil.
At Monday's meeting it was freely
predicted by the oil men and especial
ly by the Standard and Associated rep
resentatives that" the enforcement of
the 50 degree test would result in a
gasolino famine in " Oregon sooner or
iater. The demand, it was stated, was
growing so much more Tapidly than
the supply that it was impossible to
provide the gasoline of the higher grav
ity test- in tho required quantity.
Governor Oicott stated during the
conference that he "had been informed
by reliable parties that stops would be
taken to enforce the law providing for
the 56 degroo test if the state officials
granted further concessions to the oil
companies. OaTage and automobile
men, ho declared, were of tho opinion'
that the oil companies were trying to
put something .over on the state in
their claims of a gnsoline shortage and
it was up to the state officials to en
force the provisions of a law enacted
by the representatives of the people,
regnrdless of any individual views as
to whether the law was a good one.
Gasoline now sokl in eastern Oregon
and testing as high as 57 and 58 de
grees specific gravity k not of as good
quality as tho IowlT test g:isoline U9ed
in western Oregon, it was stated by
Mr. Donaldson who explained that the
specific gravity test has no relation
whatever to the quality of gasoline
which is determined only by the boil
ing point and end tests.
A suggestion by State Treasurer
Hoff, to the effect that gasoline of
a lower test bo sold nnder. another
name at a lower price was declared to
be impractical by the oil men. Gaso

was wired as "ears" and thereby caus
ing loss of several hundred dollars to
Phillip Stortz. the Western Union, in
answering the complaint of Mr. Storta,
says it should not be held liable.
The telegraph company in its answer
to the complaint, falls back on the vari
ous condtiiona that are printed on the
back of the telegram and also to the
fact that the sender did not require
that the telegram be repeated and sent
back here, for approval, which is often
done where special care is required.
The Western Jnion also al'cges m itj
answer, that it was the fault of the nic-i
who received the telegram in Indiana,
becauso ha did not take action to correct
the ambiguity in the message. -

his manager at Wolcott, Indian, "Ycu

I see they are coming down." By the
time the message reached Indinua ana
was taken off the wire, the message
read, "You sell my cars." .There wni
much delay and letters written, as the
manager in Indiana didn't understand
what was meant by instructions to -sell
Finally by mail, was made known
that Mr. Stortz wanted his oats sold but
in tho meantime the market had been
filling, causing a material, loss. Due to
the faulty message, Mr. Stortz thinks
the Western Union should foot the bill
for his losses. . : .
