Furthermore if any contestant is list

Each and every contestant MUST be

The small list published elsewhere
in this issue today must not be mis
understood. Some of the names print

only serves to show who is entered.
Some who have been nominated
have failed, so fur, to turn in one
single solitary subscription to The

even called to get an official receipt

Candidates who will not produce
subscriptions can not hope to win.
The more subscriptions you can pro

valuable only in the degree in which
you enhance your vote score by sub

Nominations But Start.
Simple nomination of a candidate
does not mean anything. The date
does not mean anything. The nomi
nation is but the first step, the start
ing point. An.voue content to rest
after nomination can not get far in
this election. Active work, honest ef
fort, constant attention to the buxi
ness in hand, and that alone can get
r votes. And votes win. And subscrip-
tions mean votes.
With so few candidates entered, and
so many of those not yet, at least,
manifesting any LIFE or ACTIVITY,
the opportunity is here for some live
ones to enter and “carry on” to win.
In fact, the more candidates enter
ed the less votes it will take to win.
If two candidates are running for
office they must have all the votes be
tween them. The winner must have
a majority—over half—of all the
votes cast. But if five candidates
seek the same office the winner only
needs to have more votes than the nert
higher candidate.

k Sovereign Grand Lodge to Be Held
In Portland This Week.
Portland, Ore., Sept. 22.—The an
nual communication of the Sovereign
Grand Lodge of the Independent Or
der of Odd Fellows will be held in
Portland this week. The sovereign
I grand lodge is composed of several
hundred representatives of the grand
- lodges of the order in the different
( states, in the provinces of Canada.
' and in several foreign countries. Aux
iliary organizations will meet during
the week. These include the Re
. bekali assembly and the Patriarchs
militant. The annual parade and
i tht military ball will be two of the
. big features on the week’s program.
Delegatefs to the gathering are al
ready arriving in the city and it is
; estimated that fully 50,000 members
| of the order will be here for the for
. mal opening of the conclave today.
Founded in 1810, in Baltimore, by
, Thomas Wildey and four others, the
Independent Order of Odd Fellows has
become one of the greatest fraternal
eocitties in the world. It is purely
an American institution, more than
75 per cent of the present total mem
bership of more than 2.000,00 being
residents of the United States and
Canada. In recent years tht order
has extended its jurisdiction to other
countries, and now its ritual is print- j
ed in eight languages.
While the Independent Order of ■
Odd, Fellows is purely an American
organization. Odd Fellowship originat
ed in England. The actual origin
of the order, however. Is obscure. The
earliest lodge of whirfi there is any
record was the Loyal Aristraehus,
which met in London in 1745. To
this source may be traced the Man
chester Unity, which is the name un
der which the great English order is
known. Manchester Unity was es
tablished in 181.1, and is now the
largest fraternal society in the world.
The actual origin of the name of
Odd Fellows is as obscure as the
foundation of the order. One theory
is that originally they were called
"hod fellows" (masons' laborers), and
another that they were “God’s fel
lows.” It has been suggested, too,
that the name was bestowed upon the
1 brethren because of the strangeness
It was on April 26. 181!), that
Thomas Wildey and his four asso
ciates met in the tavern of William
Lupton. known as "The Seven Stars,”
in Baltimore, and founded the first
lodge, which was given the name of
"Washington Lodge of Odd Fellows.”
All five of the founders bad been af
filiated with the order in England,
and they obtained a charter from thp
Duke of York's lodge of the Manches
ter Unity, Preston, England.
This original charter was surround
ed on February 22, 1821, when “The
Grand Lodge of Maryland and of the
United States of America of the In
dependent Order of Odd Fellowsship”
was organized.
The name of tbe grand lodge was
changed in 1825 to "The Grand
Lodge of the United States of the
Independent Order of Odd Fellows,”
and again, in 1870, to "The Sovereign
Grand Lodge of the Independent Or
der of Odd Fellows,” by which title
it has sinee been known.
For twelve years after the found
ing of the order Mr. Wildey continued
to serve as Grand Master (the title
being changed to Grand Sire in 1826),
and in 1835 he was made a traveling
agent of tbe Grand Lodge in tbe
United States. It is stated of his
organizing work in every section of
the country that “he had faith in
man's reciprocity of affection, he had
a firm belief in the brotherhood of all,
and absolute confidence in the great
scheme of fraternity to arouse and
give expression to those generally re
pressed emotions of friendship and
love.” Mudi of the present magni
tude of the order Is atttributed to his
zealous missionary work.

Police Officer Heard Wom
an Scream, Made Inquiry
and Located Body in a
Furnace of Lumber Kiln.
Police Say He Told Them
He Killed Her Because
He Was Afraid She Was
Planning to Poison Him.
New York. Sept. 22.— (/P) —Police
today discovered the body of Mrs.
Sophie Poleski, a young East Side
woman, in the furnace of a lumber
yard kiln in Lewis Street. George
Symuk, fireman of the lumber yard
was arrested in connection with the
woman’s death. The police said they
believe she had been plnced in the
furnace alive.
Patrolman William Merrick, hear
ing a woman’s screams coming from
the lumber yard investigated. As he
scrambled over ttoe piles of lumber
the screnmx ceased.
Merrick found Symuk near the fur

'on the premises. As Merrick began
to question Symuk fled, and Merrick
| fired his revolver. The shot was heard
1 by two other patrolmen, who caught
the fireman and took him back to the
furnace room. Tile officers found Mrs.
Poleski's body inside the furnace, the
door of which had been closed, and a
shovel propped against it.
Physicians said an autopsy would
be necessary to determine whether she
was burned alive, or whether she was
first killed with blows over the head.
Symuk told the police that the
woman often visited him at the yard,
and that she once threatened to poison
him. When she brought him two
bottles of wine early this morning he
suspected that she had placed poison
in the wine. He said he beat her
over the head with a bottle, and then
carried her body from an office in the
main building to the furnace room.
Police said Mrs, Poleski was gagged
before being placed in the furnace.
Symuk told his captors that when

Secretary of Navy Thittks
Department of National
Defense)Would Be Great
Mistake for the Country. '
So Far As Naval Air Serv
ice is Concerned Mr. Wfl? j
ber Would Leave It As i
It Is At Present.
Washington, Sept. 22.— UP) —Main- K
tenance of the navy air service or- J
ganization in substantially its pres* a
ent form was advanced today by See* yj
retary Wilbur before the President’s
air lion nl.
Called as the first witness of the S
day by the board which yesterday in--8
quired into the policy of the war de
partment and the navy air service,
j Mr. Wilbur emphatically opposed the
j creation of a department of national
defense. Such a step, he declared, |
| would be a “well nigh irreparable mis- 3
“Air forces,” he asserted, “form *»;!
essential part of the fabric of tfcfc'jb
navy itself and its administration
like all administrative problems inter
nal to the navy will, if unmolested by
outside influences, be solved with the
same efficiency and with the same hap. ■
py results as has been obtained in
similar problems ill the past."
The Secretary likewise expressed
opposition to establishment of the
navy air service as a separate corps,
analogous to the marine corps. H«
declared against a single air
maintained for national defense, but
not under the army or navy.
The navy, he said, requires its own "j
air forces as “a vital element of a
naval battle” adding that if a “vital
ly component part of the navy is un
der the direction and authority of an
independent air service it removes jS
from the naval coiqmander that unity "i
of command in time of battle, and
that uniformity of training in time of
peace, which every war has proved to
be essential to victory.”
The Secretary assured the board
that “all the information in the pos- 8
session of the Navy Department or
any of its officers desired by you is 1
at your disposal.” "We wish.” he
said, “to present <the matters involved, *
in the fullest and fairest manner pos- 8;
siplr-by those moat- fully
give the information.”
The Secretary then launched into a
discussion of the technical relation ‘of -
the air service to other military arms.
“The mission of the army and navy
in peace or war,” he said, “is to sup-,
port and defend the national policies.-
The army and navy operate under spe- »
citie missions in each.”
Before Doing Anything to Get Coun
try Represented at League of Na
tions Conference.
Washington, Sept. 22.—MB—Am
erican participation in the disarma
ment conference plans of the league
of nations should only be undertaken
if "Congress authorizes it. in the
judgment of President Coolidge. - .
The I’resident wants to do nothing
to discourage the efforts for a reduc
tion of armaments by mutual agree
ment, but he is not inclined to co-op
erate in a league of nations disarma
ment conference if there is a possibil
ity that Congress will object. ■
No suggestion whether the Wash
ington government will b(\ asked to
take part in the export committee of
the league which will discuss plana '!
so radisa rmament agreement has
reached here through official channels.
