THE MORNING OREGON1AN, FRIDAY. MARCH 26, 1913.
STIRS UP COMMENT
Almost All Educators, Clergy and
Doctors Commend George L.
Baker Tor Bringing Star
tling Drama to Portland.
From every source letters are pour
ing In to the office of George L. Baker
relative to the forthcoming production
of Eugene Brieux' sociological drama,
"Damaged Goods," which the Baker
Players will put on next week. Some
of the letters suggest that the "stage
Is not the place for medical clinics";
some insist that the -function of the
drama is but to entertain and should
not be turned Into a dissection of hu
man bodies." Others, the majority of
educational, ministerial and medical
forces in Portland, unhesitatingly set
the seal of their approval on the pro
duction. The Oregon Social Hygiene
Socletv. through Its committee, headed
by Dr." William T. Foster, V F.'Wood
ard and Dr. G. N. Pease, has indorsed
the play in unqualified terms. So has
the Portland Ad Club. From ministers
have come many letters.
Dr. K. A. Pierce, president of the
Oregon State Board of Health, says in
a letter to Mr. Baker:
Permit me to congratulate you for
pluclng within the reach of the citi
zens of our city the great moral drama,
'Damaged Goods.1 It must follow, after
witnessing this presentation by your
capable company, that a tremendous
awakening of conscience will result,
and a dissemination of this knowledge
will be far-reaching toward the great
uplifting of humanity.",
Dr. 'Whiteside Approves Play.
n- WhtteKiriA savs:
"I want to write you and congratu
late you for your public-spirited action
In producing 'Damaged Goods.' I have
read the play and heartily indorse the
principles of it. Having been . for

Dr. Charles R. McClure writes: "You

i i . t, nrueAntnllnn fif 'Damaged

educational factor in the community
Is doing a great service in calling the

principles that are being set forth
In this play. as a raran" man
would commend the attention of all
thoughtful people to 'Damaged Goods.' "
Parent Should Accompany Children.
There is a unanimous agreement
among educators, ministers and physi
cians that no children under 16 may
view the play unless accompanied by
parents or guardian. School principals
have expressed the hope that at least
nil children approximating that ase
will have an opportunity to see this
play. Special .matinees will be an
nounced for women only. Railroad of
ficials have arranged for special after
tlieater trains to' accommodate visitors
from nearby towns.
The story of "Damaged Goods" Is
that of a young man who refuses to
follow the advice of his physician, who
tells him that marriage for him In
his present physlcial condition would
be a terrible crime against the woman
he loves and the future generation.
The result of the young man's sins are
seen later in the play, when, amid the
happiness which he is enjoying with
his wife and baby girl, there esters
the dread specter of hereditary disease.
According to reviewers the very frank
ness of the dramatist disarms the
criticisms of those who customarily
attack the stage on account of the
suggestiveness with which sex prob
lems are usually discussed.
A private invitational production will
be tendered to about 100 social hygiene
workers, ministers and physicians this
afternoon at 2:15 at the Baker Theater.

Dr. Roberg, the new secretary-

He served as fellow in pathology at
the latter institution for some time
and about five years ago he was ap
pointed professor of pathology and
bacteriology at the medical department
of the University of Oregon, ' remain
ing in that capacity for three years.
Under a special appropriation of the
1913 Legislature ojpoMunity was pro
vided to send Dr. Moberg to the Orient
to study , tropical diseases and more
particularly diseases which may be
transmitted to the Pacific Coast of the
United States through commerce.
Since he has been in the Orient he
has co-operated with the branch of
Harvard College at Shanghai in the
investigation of diseases prevalent in
China. When he completed his work
there he went to the Philippine Islands,
where he made a special study of
cholera, bubonic piugue, leprosy and
amoebic dysentery. He was afflicted
with the latter disease three different
times and fully recovered each time.

College of Medicine and Surgery of
the University of the Philippine Islands
at Manila in a study of diseases pe

Training Is Thorough.
"On account of his thorough train
ing as a pathologist and bacteriologist
Dr. Roberg is scientifically equipped
to serve as secretary of the State Board
of Health," said Dr. Andrew C. Smith
last night. "He Is regarded foremost
along that line of work, and the state
is to be congratulated for being able to
secure his services.
Dr. Roberg Is 32 years old and is a
native of Chicago. His father, Oscar B.
Koberg, is well known throughout the
United States and Sweden as publisher
of one of the oldest Swedish news
papers (Missions Waunen) in the
United i States. Two brothers. Dr.
Frederick Roberg and Dr. O. Theodore

ried about two years ago, just before
he left for the Orient.
Dr. White, who will be succeeded by
Dr. Roberg in September, said last night
that he will continue as secretary
until that time. He then will resume
practice as physician and surgeon. Dr.
White has been secretary of the board
for six years. During his term the
board made a state-wide cam
paign against tuberculosis, partici
pated in the anti-fly crusade, under

and grounds clean and investigated
sources of water supply for various
towns for the purpose of preventing
the spread "of typhoid fever. Dr. White
has delivered health lectures in all
counties in the state except two. He
has administered the Pasteur treat
ment to 80 persons inflicted with ra

the Oregon Social Hygiene Society and

Since the election-of Governor Withy

that he took an active part in the
campaign to defeat Dr. Withycombe
and this political activity was widely
criticised by Republicans.
