tlces have been not to disturb the in
cumbents in these places if they were
giving satisfactory service.
The law also provides a secretary
ship for the State Board of Control, a
place now held by R. B. Goodln, and a
secretary for the State Land Board,
which also consists of the Governor,
Treasurer and Secretary of State. .
Governor May Dictate.
Heretofore these appointments have
been dictated largely by Governor
West and Ben Olcott, Secretary of
State. It is expected, however, that
under the new administration Gov
ernor Withycombe and State Treasurer
Kay will control the Board and per
haps dictate the appointments.
The Governor, Treasurer and Secre
tary of State also have the appointing
power of two tax commissioners, the
term of one of whom, Charles V. Gallo
way, will expire March 2, 1815.
A secretary also is to be appointed
for the Desert Land Board, composed
of the Governor, Treasurer, Secretary
of State and Attorney-General.
Then there are numerous boards
most of them bi-partisan which pay
I no salaries and which carry no salaried
appointments, all of which roust be
filled in whole or in part by the Gov
ernor. Among these are the fctate
Board of Forestry, Board of Account

A whole lot of nice fat Jobs in con- r
nection with the state government are
at the disposition of the newly-eleet-ed
Governor, and some of Dr. Withy-

that he will have a hard time finding
men who are willing to accept the
But, on the contrary. Dr. Withy
combe himself, according to word com
ing from Corvallls, Is in no danger of
such a perplexity. He is constantly
besieged with applicants for every Job

at the Statehouse to the private secre
While the Governor will have the
direct appointing power over a score

eagerly sought.
Board to Be Named.
In addition to this, the Governor is
empowered to appoint several impor
tant boards, which boards in 'turn have
authority to appoint persons to sal
aried positions According to all rules
of politics these board appointments
can be dictated by the Governor. It is
not unlikely that some of the positions
now existing will be eliminated by the
Legislature, many . members of which
are pledged to a programme of econ
' One of the most sought-after posi
tions In the hands of the Governor is
that of Corporation Commissioner, in
whose hands is the operation of the
blue sky" law. This place now Is held
by Ralph A. Watson. He was appoint
ed by Governor West January 4, 1913,
for a four-year term. Watson is mak
ing an effort to retain his position on
the ground that he is entitled to fill
out his term. He is a Democrat and
formerly was private secretary to Gov.
ernor West, and before that was politl
cal reporter for the Oregon Journal, a
Democratic newspaper printed In Port
land. Many Republicans are after this
office and ague that its tenure should
run concurrently with the Governor

"Jane," 24 years old and partially
paralyzed, was deserted by her husband
and has a 5-months-old baby to care
for. A neighbor helped her until her
own husband lost his job and she was

who has been sewing for a living, but
has not been able to find anything to
do for many weeks. She is in dire
need of work, but a more pressing
necessity at this moment Is food and
money enough to pay the rent until
she can get work.

obtain glasses unless he is helped by
some one. .
These are only a, few typical cases
of the scores that pass through the
offices of the Associated Charities, at
