    Research Bureau Head
Recalls Dopey Queries
Send them the questions—they’ll give you the answers.
Last year the combined intelligence forces of the bureau of
municipal research and the league of Oregon cities answered
592 questions from all over the state, it was revealed in an
interview with Orval Etter, bureau research assistant and legal
consultant for the League of Oregon Cities. Questions ranged

Slink Laws
“One of the most amusing que
ries came from a small Oregon
town where agitated officials
wanted information of regulations
in ordinances concerned with
keeping mink,” Etter divulged.
He added that there was no ex
planation as to what strange sit
uation would bring forth a ques
tion of that type in Oregon.
In another Oregon village one
patriotic councilman had the
brilliant idea of licensing slot
machines and turning the license
fee money over to national de
fense. “He evidently wasn’t aware
that operation of slot machines
_^is against the law in Oregon,”
Etter remarked with a grin.
Legal Valve
It is in the matter of legal dif
ficulties that the campus office
is of special value, in the opinion
of Etter. During the past 13
months 160 questions have been
of a purely legal type.
“A rather tangled problem
came up recently,” Etter said. It
seems a boy of 16 or 17 was fined
by the city recorder, accepted
dispenser of justice in most small
communities, and then refused to
pay his $5 fine on the basis that
they couldn’t force him to.
\ Minor
The boy’s argument was that
the recorder couldn’t put him in
jail, since he was a minor. The

problem was complicated by the
fact that the city didn't have a
jail. Consequently the officers of
the city were in a state of befud
dlement and a minor juvenile
crime wave developed in the town.
"The kids are running the
town," was the angered complaint
of city officials when, after sev
eral attempts to get advice from
other sources they came to the
League of Oregon Cities. A few
minutes research among legal
and ordnance files produced the
correct "down in writing’’ truth
on the situation.
According to law the city re
corder could not only fine wrong
doers but had authority to order
them put in jail if they refused
to pay. As to the problem of se
curing a bastille it appeared all
the city council had to do was
pass an ordinance stating that
the county jail was henceforth
the official place of internment,
make arrangements with the
county for sending violators there
and ship off the offenders. There
was, of course, the matter of
paying for the prisoner’s food and
lodging, but that was still less
expensive than building a jail to
house one boy.
Won’t Miss School
"They planned to confine him
from Friday noon till Sunday af
ternoon so he wouldn’t miss any
school,’’ Etter declared.
In another legal puzzle a coast
community which had been or
ganized as a rural fire protection
district wanted to know what was
to be done with its fire equip
ment after it had been organized
as a city.
The answer was that since the
municipal government replaced
the district it inherited the dis
trict’s property.
Some of the 'real laughs come
in reading over city ordinances.

Nilssen Students Sing
In Operatic Preview
A preview performance was
given Monday evening for the
Parent-Teachers association of
University high school; a pre
view of an operatic concert to be
given in the music auditorium on
May 13.
Entirely operatic in nature,
the performers gave the same se
lections that they will sing at
the concert. They are all pupils
of Sigurd Nilssen, professor of
voice. They were very enthusi
astically received.
Marie Rogndahl sang “Cara
Nome” from “Rigoletto”; Ray
Leonard, Valentine's aria from
“Faust”; Meryl Corbett, the bird
woman's song from the American
opera, “Shanewis” by Cadman.
The trio from the last act of
“Faust” was sung by Margaret
Zimmerman, Lee Ghorneley, and
Ray Leonard.

As basic requirements for a
new German parliament, Profes

to encourage and promote dis

United States senate that could
represent the states while acting
as a stabilizer for the lower house.
Members of this group, he adds,
