to connect at the latter point with
District line cars to and from the
city.
It la pointed out by Mr. Beeler that
there js great Inconvenience and
trouble tn operating th? cari on the
Columbia li?..-, owing to the fact that
the XV.. F?. and A. cars use the same ?
tracks. He atrios that there will be j
tnmMe in operating on the schedule
provided as long as the Baltimore
cars are operated en the tracks in
the same manner th.it they are now.
"The large, heavy cars, slow in

MILLIONAIRE SHIPBUILDER
REFUSES TO TAKE PROFITS
Pacific Coast Maker of First Big Wooden Ship
Refunds His War Gains, Explaining He Is
Xot Crazy, but Just Pro-American.
Portland. Ove. ? America's moat
incular millionaire li Brio V. Houser, '
war-profit less shipbuilder, maker ot
ih?? first wooden vessel delivered to
I li?? Kmergency Fleet Corporation.
"I dont want to make any money
out of the war," said Houser when
lit* took over the job of president and
tenera! manager of the r?rant Smlth
Porter shipyards Company, o? Port
land, Or.'.
ile found himself confronted with
money, however, w hich he was com
pelled to accept under the cost-plus
pliii of the government.
I'm he ha.^n't kept one penny of this
profit
Really Ketiiran Promu.
1 !*? has given it all hack to Cncle
Sam, not by the purchase of liberty
bonds and war savings stamps, for
those are Investment*, but by dona
tions to the Ked Cross, the Y. M. C.
? . relief fund:* and other funds help
ing to win the war.
"My two boys, Rupert and Ken
neth," he said, "are staking their
Uvea. The least I can do is put my
money behind them, 1 abhor*waf and
I don't want to make money thruugh
it All 1 want Is to see the world

that cause."
Houser Is a trote! man. He owns

building husine?*s to do bis "bit." He
Is doing it with a vengeance.
The Wnseo, the first wooden ship of

He then had contrncts to build
thirty ?*u?-h .?hip.?*?. He is turning
? hem o'it in speedy time.
When the last Red Cross drive was
launched in Oregon, the publicity
committee needed an automobile.
"Take mine." said Houser, "and he
cave them a ?reat yellow touring car
in which they toured the State, send
ing Oiegon first "over the top."
On their return to Portland, the
'oimnittee drove it back to Houser's
?-??t ige
"It doesn't belong here," he told
them. "It belongs to the Red Cross
Why don't you raffle it and turn tbe
| money into the fund'.' How much do
you suppose it should bring "
Someone of the committee, an au
tomobile salesman, said he believed
tt would raffle for $10,000.
Raffle Hrlnn ID ?-.-.M.
"Good,'* said Houser and the hi g
yellow car was raffled In the street*
When the committee courted its
money it had $h.W0.
"How much did it bring?'? Houser
?asked.
"We got more than we actually ex
pected." confessed the chairman.
? 'Kighty-eight hundred."
"Only 18.900.* said the donor. "Then
heres the balance."
? He wrote a check for H,3<X) and
. handed It to the astonished com
? mitteeman.
"Its worth every cent of It," said
[ Houser.
i Houser excuses himself for his
reckless handling of money with this
explanation:
"I want my eon?-?? in France to he
backed up with equipment and munW

That, According to Dr. Johnson, I<
the Function of Conversation?
Dr- Samuel Johnson, aft shrewd and
sound and sweet on the whole, a com*
mentator on men ?nd things aa ever
lived, came to the conclusion that
three-quarters of the conversation
that one hears everywhere is taken
up with the efforts of the interlocu
tors to convince one another of their
importance. It is even true enough
of conversations one list*.-us to over
the telephone.
The lady of the house is called up.

I no difficulty whatever in determining
at once the social rank of the unseen
party to the conversation.

CITIZENS QUICK
?Soldiers at Walter Reed Are j
Eager to Become
Naturalized.
Building ship* In forty-five da>*s
may be great, but we aleo make citi
zen* of wounded soldiers in a little
over two hours.
Speeding up naturalization of ail
nllen members ot our army wa? a
war measure passed by Congress r.oi
lohg ago. The procesa has been
worked out to its simplest terms at
Walter Ileed Hospital, where many
men seek to bicorne actual citizen? of
Ihe beloved country in whose service
they have become disabled.
The long involved method requiring
first, second, and even third papers
has been aaamaaaaA with, and now in
stead' of two and a quarter years, it
takes about two and a quarter hours
to become naturalised.
Capt Kdward Lambkin, who handles I
thia work at the hospital, said that
about ?very two months a call is sent
throughout tbe wards to all men who
would become citizens of the Cnitcd
States to assemble in the? library at
a certain time, in order that they
may be taken to the court to iwear
allegiance.

"The first time I sent that call
about loo men assembled, hut some
?nf them were still in their pajama.s
and dressing gowns and of course
not attired in a fit manner to enter
the august presence of the court.
Tb? next time I -sent the call I stipu
lated that the ni^n be properly
dressed in their uniforms so that they
could be immediately taken into the
city.
"They don't mind the hardship of
being trundled into an automobile
truck as most of them are anxious
to have the ceremony performed,
although many are quite helpless
from the loss of limbs and other dis
figurements.
At first a man had to have two men
h* has known a long time to testify
to his character. We had so much
trouble locating the.<*e men that the
rule was changed Now I stand as
sponsor to them all and my name la
placed upon all the applications.'"
Capt. I,amhkin is known as thi
"godfather" of the newly made
citizens at Walter Reed.
'Why shouldn't I stand sponsor for
| the characters of these imn" ? -
?asked. "Haven't they proved th? ?r
; worth in fighting for the country by
'which they wish to be adopted?

'"Many of them feel that it is a
great mark of appreciation for th?ir
?services to the country. It :r

"When I a eked him why he w.is

I would sav that he might want to c .
I hnck to Italy .some day. And then I
would make clear to him the advan

"One Italian was highly egclted **

PROGRAM FOR THE CONSERVATION OF
TELEPHONE SERVICE
August 1?. 1918, the Postmaster General issued an order t
telephone companies "to confine extensions ?ind bettermei
perativc and unavoidable work to meet war requirements and the
vital commercial needs of the country."
All companies were directed to "ad"pt and enforce su and
regulations as may be necessary and proper to ace - re
sult because of the difficulties incident to war condi -??.curing
adequate supplies, labor and transportation."
In compliance with this order, this company wi' aketo pro
vide service as promptly as conditions wi ; essential war
work .and vital commercial needs.
Where it is not obvious that applicants ;' vice fall within these
classes, evidence will be required th; requested i f
such importance in war production work or is of such vital com
mercial necessity as to warrant service lieing established.
Possession of government contract??", priority shipping ?
or a letter or other fon ? of advice from the chief of a :
department certifying to the necessity for '.he establishment
ice, will be accepted as evidence.
No applications for service except those permitted und?
of the Postmaster Genera' will be accepted.
