T. Milli-ken, president of the Northwest Baptist seminary, Portland, as expressed by him before the Oregon Baptist State convention here to-day. - '. President Milliken declared that mere orthodoxy is not enough to keep the church alive. "Too many people are busy waiting for the coming of the Lord that they don't have time to save souls," President Milliken said. Bible Word of God Regarding the creed of the seminary Dr. Milliken declared that there are two theories regarding the Bible. One, he said, is that it contains the word of God, and the . other that it "is the word ' of God." "We believe and teach that the Bible is the word of God," tho speaker asserted. This, he said, places the authority in the Bible itself, and not in the interpretations of the Bible which, may be as varied us there are interpreters. . President .Milliken said he considered It "an" Indictment 'of ' the church that In Portland he had found approximately half ' thc professing Christians he has met are not members of any church, Seminaries Diminish. ;' "We believe in going out and saving souls," thc seminary president said, and he assured the assembled Baptists that this is the seminary's major purpose. Controversies over theological questions, he asserted, arc weakening to the church. Thc seminary is now training more than 50 young people in ministerial and evangelical work, President Millikan said. Among this group are representatives of nine denominations, due, he said, to the fact that thc number oC available seminaries has greatly diminished. 300 In Attendance According to the treasurer's report the Oregon convention received $24,442.75 last year and current expenses were $24,144.31, Book value of convention property was given as $181,058, and net capital investment was reported as $132,548.58, representing a shrinkage of $3,013.78 during the, last year.

A nominating committee was selected today to prepare and offer a list of names for voting at the annual conference election, planned tomorrow morning. President Millikcn's talk today followed another on Evangelism In Christian education by Dr. T. H. Hagen, director of Christian education. Convention delegates were welcomed last night by Rev. Elmer Junker, pastor of the host church, Albany, to whom a response waa given by Dr. H. J. Maulbctsch, president of the convention. Tho address of the evening was given by Dr. M. D.

Communion Charged Linfield college came in for extensive discussion at thc session ot thc Oregon Council of Baptist Men at the United Presbyterian church yesterday afternoon when Dr. J. E. Conant. evangelist. exDressed dis- ! satisfaction with resolutions passed at the youth conference held on the Linfield campus March 1. "One of those resolutions was definitely communistic," Dr. Conant said of a resolution which dealt with social and industrial changes. Neither socialism nor communism has any place in the church, the speaker said, declaring that "socialism is nothing but communism with a shave and a haircut." The care and deliberation with which those resolutions were drawn up "Indicated to me that they originated in the classroom," Dr. Conant said. He also criticized a resolution advocating a liberalized attitude toward amusements and another regarding pacifism. Sympathy Asked - "Those young people seem to have the idea that they can stop war with the Prince of Peace cast out." Dr. Conant charged.

The word came from the federal emergency corporation headquarters in Portland. Application for the additional loan was made last February, due to the Tact that the funds previously available were sufficient only for buildings, and were inadequate for much of the furniture and equipment essential to completion of the plant, the clerk said. Three Rooms Added Until the loan addenda was granted the district was faced with probable necessity of financing the necessary additional purchases without federal aid, according to Mr. Brenneman. As it is the dis trict will bear only 55 per cent of the cost. Inasmuch as the government had previously authorized a loan of $09,000. the total of government funds to be used in construction of the three local schools , will be $120,000. or 45 per cent of their total cost, ...including equipment. This total is $2R0,063. according to the school clerk. This includes $34,000 in cash which the district had on hand. Need for the loan arises from the necessity of eliminating nearly nil of the alternative proposals in the plans when the contracts for construction were let. the school; clerk explained. Furthermore al-j terations in the plans have provided for three additional classrooms I in the high school building, one! over the heating plant and two in another extension, both adjoining! the south wall of the high school building on either side of the present Fourth street entrance. Excavations lor each of these ad ditions are under way. Bond Rale Due Members of the school boird said today that as a result of the! additional grant Albany will be: assured not only of buildings surpassed bv non in any town of this size in Oregon, but of unexcelled equipment, all adequate for needs, of the district many years to come. It was pointed out that the dis-l trict will be provided with a $280.-' 000 school plant at an expenditure of only $160,000. and by incurring a debt of only $120,000. The board will meet tonight to take ster.'s necessary to comply with the terms of the new loan. This will include sale and issuance of $30,000 in additional bonds to match the newly available federal funds. NEW TREATY WITH FRANCE GIVES U. S. x INCREASED QUOTAS Washington, May 13. A decade-long diplomatic war over tariffs was ended today by a commercial treaty designed to promote a profitable flow of trade between France and the United States.

IN DEFENDS TAX TO Secretary, Experts Argue for Fundamentals of Measure BYRD HEADS ATTACK Claims Big Corporations to Dodge Payment Under Plan Washington, May 13. Secretary of Treasury Henry Morgenthau. jr., and treasury experts argued for two hours before the senate finance committee today m de fense of the $803,000,00 tax bill-but apparently with hope only of saving the fundamental theory of the tax on undivided corporate earnings. Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D., Va., said the treasury figures merely "proved my contention" that the big and strong corporations would evade taxes. He revealed treasury figures presented to the commit tee showing: That on the basis of 1934 in come records 600 corporations had an income of at least $1,000,000. Increase for Many That 283 of these would have had their taxes reduced by 50 per cent or more under the terms of the proposed bill. That of the 283, a total of 38 would have paid no taxes at all under the new bill because they would have distributed all of their earnings. That, in addition, there would have been others that would get smaller than 50 per cent reductions in taxes. But that data, according, to a later statement by Chairman Pat Harrison, D Miss., showed only part of the picture. Harrison said the treasury experts told the committee in answer to Byrd there would be at least an enqual num ber of corporations whose taxes under the bill would be increased more than 50 per cent. GOVERNMENT CHAOS RESULT OF ATTEMPT CONTROL CONDITIONS The legal status of Oregon was discussed this noon before the Al bany' chamber of commerce and visitors by Alfred P. Dodson, of Portland, special counsel for the state public utilities commission of the state. The speaKer praised ine resources of the Willamette valley and its great heritage. He declared "no greater destiny is in the reach of any people than those of the Willamette Valley." Mr. Dodson discussed the experience of England and other European countries in their development in government on which that of our land is based. As business and general industrial conditions change, law becomes more complex and in the hands of diversified and non-coherent commissions, he said, a chaotic condition that is rebounding to the detriment of the advance of the people in business life. The interstate commerce commission, established in 1888, was given as the first step in government to regulate industry from a national standpoint, explained Mr. Dodson. Since that time complications have developed as the result of numerous state commissions and business organizations controlling industry throughout the nation. In Oregon there are approximately 50 authorities in the state system of government. The public service commission was given as an example in which a state commissioner has been appointed as result of an act of the legislature. Out of the chaos of conditions the responsibility rests on the legal profession U plan a way out in order that the state may make better progress, he stated. The musical program consisted of two vocal duets, Mr .and Mrs. Stanley Peterson, accompanied by Mrs. Hazel fcwing. Nominees for directors of the chamber included J. C. Irvine, W. L. Fitzpatnck, R. W. Tripp. Geo. L. Berry, W. V. Merrill, Lowell Seaton. F. H. Pfeiffer. Fred Hough, Zed Merrill. John Lamberty.

Some 25 lumber camps in the Columbia river und Tillamook areas will be closed down by Thursday night, Camps of the Columbia basin loggers association were in process of closing down today, machinery being stored, equipment put in sluipe for storage and supplies centralized. , . . .- - - - The shutdown was ordered by the association when the district council of the Sawmill and Timber Workers union refused to order its men bark to work in five camps in the Tillamook burn area during arbitration. The association claimed the walkout in the Tillamook burn camp was ordered to attempt to force the directors of the associa tion to accede to union demands in all camps. A wage agreement was said to have been reached but thc union held out for a closed shop, control of the hiring halls and other work ing conditions. The present strike concerns only independent logging firms, those that arc in. the logging business only. Many large lumber mills operate their own camps and those will not be affected. The great Meyerhaeuser and Long Bell mills at Longview will not be affected because they operate their own camps and have signed an agreement with their employes. The shut-down will throw about 01100 loggers out of work, and if Portland mills have to shut down because of lack nf logs, it will affect another 0000 lumber mill workers.

From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond "Mahan, Charged With Receiving $100,000 Ransom, Broke" Messrs. Mahan and Waley used to write the cops daily, while holding Weyerhaeuser for ransom; they bragged of their brains and told of the pains they had taken to make things go handsome. They were anxious to tell that they'd nl'jnnnH it c until V Pi that they just weren t going to be caught: they I f ' J made it quite LJfi&t. ...'. plain that they held in disdain any force that against them was brought. It took scarcely a day to put the Walcys away, so they weren't so terribly smart. For a time, the cops failed to have Mahan jailed, but thev knew of his guilt from the start. He lived in great fear for nearly a year, just driven from 'pillar to post.' then they put him away for a sixty-year stay: so. he didn t make gxd on his boast. q It's not new to say thai crime doesn't pay; it's been proven again and again: now Mahan is broke and will probably 'croak' ere he serves sixty yeara in the 'pen'.

"Pay no attention to him," the management advised. At that time Zioncheck was drinking milk from coconuts. He was tossing thc drained coconuts from his window at passersby.
