MITCHELL IS AUDITOR
Was Varsity Distance Runner
While at Oregon in 1907.
Is Now Traveling for State In
dustrial Accident Commis
sion of Oregon.
Walter F. Mitchell, '07, one-time ’var
sity distance runner, has for the past
two years been engaged as traveling aud
itor for the state industrial accident com
mission. Ilis duties are to visit the em
ployers who are subject to the Work
men's Compensation net, audit their pay
rolls and explain the intricate workings
of this new and important legislation.
The position of traveling auditor for
the commission is of special importance
in this state owing to the fact that con
siderable antagonism exists between the
state fund and some of the casualty in
surance companies. The traveling audit
or is the official exponent of the state
fund to the employers throughout the
Mr. Mitchell is an earnest advocate
of state insurance in workmen's compen
sation. lie believes that the compensation
act is not only applicable to the so
called industrial occupations to which it
is now confined but that it is nlso well
adopted to the large eastern Oregon wheat
ranches which lie in his territory, lie
says that the hazards of farming are fully
equal to those of many classes of mills
and factories. To bring a share of these
farms under the act has been one of Mr.
Mitchell's chief endeavors.

GEO. T. COLTON,
Esther Carson Secretary Pro
Tem for Gov. Withycombe.
Fills Chair Left Vacant When
Oregon Troops Leave
To shoulder the responsibilities of the
office of private secretary to Oregon’s
chief executive has fallen to the lot of
Esther Carson, ex-’14, during the past
summer. When the Third Oregon In
fantry was hurried to the border in June, j
George Palmer Putman, the secretary
of Governor Withycombe, marched away
in the ranks. Miss Carson, who is a
member of the Oregon bar, and who has
had considerable experience in the Gov
ernor's office, was immediately chosen
to fill the vacancy. She continued to act
in this position until the return of the
troops from the Mexican border during
the present month.
The growth of business in the execu
tive office has made it impossible for the
governor to give personal attention
to all of the matters tlia. are presented.
Accordingly many affairs are left to the
discretion of the secretary, who has be
come one of the more important of the
state officers, and to hold this position
is no ordinary honor.
Miss Carson states that of the sub
jects which have been presented for the
consideration of the governor’s office
this summer, probably the most notable
are the requests made by parents and
relatives 01 behalf of militiamen for ex
emption from military service.
GLEE CLUB MATERIAL GOOD
Director Lyman Says New Men 100 per
Cent Better Than Last Year.
“Glee club material among the men of
the University is 100 per cent better
this year than it was last year,” says
Prof. Lyman, director of the elub. ‘It is
so good in fact that a few who were in
the club last year may be replaced by
some of the new people who have tried
Approximately fifteen new members
will be taken in. This number almost,
equals last year’s record. Some of the
old memhers have gone out for athletics
and have dropped their work with the
club. William Vawter who was with the
club two years ago lias returned and
will probably do solo work this year.
Kay Stanton, another 'etcran, is also
back. There is a vacancy among the solo
ists left by Albert Gillette who is not
in college this semester.
Tryouts for places on the women’s glee
club are still in progress. Here, too, ac
cording to Prof. Lyman, the material is
exceptionally fine and eliminations will
be difficult to make. Membership will
probably be announced some time this
