Polk Recall Move Thought
Based on Trivial Cause.
ROAD SYSTEM COMMENDED
TV. L. Too, Jr., Calls Attention to
Work Done on Highways and Be
lieves Effort Will Not Bo Suc
cessful at Polls Later.
DALLAS. Or Aug. 8. (To th Edl
tor.) The recall movement commenced
In Polk County against County Judge
J. B. Teal and Commissioner C w.
Reekett and Gforii A. Wells la due
principally to opposition to the policy
of th County Court In the construction
of nubile hlshwava in the county. The
county ha oiled a greater portion of
tha main thoroughfares, but persons
living along those that have not been
oiled feel that they have been unjustly
Other objections raised deal with the
fact that a great deal of the construc
tion and renair work this year has
hn in tho vlrinltv of Falls City, th
home of Judge Teal, and In the vicinity
of West Salem, the home or commie
Inner Re-kett Aside from these ob
Jectlons. there are many persona who
have been nursing personal grievances
aealnat the members of the court. For
th two vears there has been con
slderable agitation along the line of
a recall, but nothing definite devel
oped until C R. Canfleld. County Sur
veyor. Indignant because the court let
a portion of the surveying work of the
county to other civil engineers, started
the ball rolling.
Three I a pi re Recall.
In this effort Mr. Canfleld was SUP'
ported by Councilman Westover. of the
Dallas Cltr Council, and Joe II- Brown.
a prosperous farmer living near Dallas.
These men are the direct causea or me
present movement, and they have
brourht to their standard three classes
of citizens, one class comprising those
who oppose development along any
line, another class comprising some oi
those who live in sections where no
moner Is being spent for Improvements,
and the other class comprising those
who have personal grievances against
the individual members of the court.
Of these three classes undoubtedly
the laat mentioned claim the most
members. To these three classes
mlsrht he added another set of citl-
sens who are ever ready to take hold
of anything that promises to destroy
something or somebody. A the per
sonnel of the present County Court is
Republican throughout, it Is also said
that perchance an element of politics
Is entering Into the fight. However.
those familiar with the altuation say
that tha fight will be waged along
purely nonpartisan lines, and discount
tha political aspect of the case.
Asslgaed Reaaeaa Denied.
The reasons assigned In the recall
cell tlon of favoritism, extravagance
and repeated violations of law seem,
from an examination of the records in
the County Courthouse and a careful
outside Investigation to be mere sub
terfuges to hide the true personal as
pect of the case, and owing to this fact.
which has become widely 'known
throughout the county, the recall pro
moters will undoubtedly experience.
and are experiencing, considerable dif
ficulty In procuring the necessary
number of signatures. Desertions from
their ranka are of daily occurrence, al
though .It must be admitted that In
some of the precincts In the southern
and northern enda of the county con
siderable encouragement la being lent
to the movement, and many are sign
ing the petitlona .
Among those who stand in a posi
tion which might ba termed neutral,
being neither for nor against the
County Court. It is generally conceded
that the movement Is 111-tlmed and Ill
advised, and that It will meet with
certain defeat If it ever comes to a
vote of the people.
Opposition to Move Develops.
There are many votera who have
expressed themselves aa not being In
favor of the policies of the present
court, but who oppose the recall move
ment upon general principles, and will
vote to defeat It. Thla latter class of
citizens Is subdivided into two classes:
Those who oppose the recall law In
all Its forms and workings, and those
who do not consider the situation grave
enough to Invoke this extraordinary
remedy and put the taxpayers to the
large expense that a recall election will
necessarily Incur, and who for that
reason feel that a stern rebuke should
be administered to those who so lightly
trifle with such a law, and thus estab
lish a precedent.
Another class of citizens view the
situation from the standpoint that the
votera having elected the officials now
holding office, they, should stand by
their choice until the next regular elec
tion and then make a change In the
regular and ordinary manner; that the
time to ponder over the qualifications
and fitness of candidates for official
positions Is when the campaign Is on.
Court Improve Road System.
But whatever may be the reasons as
aigned for the recall, and whatever
may be the feeling of those opposed
to It. It is certain that there are many
votera who are lending their aupport
to the movement and that the matter
has pasaed beyond the point where It
la taken lightly.
Judge J. B. Teal was elected in 1913
upon a platform of economy consistent
with a broad and liberal policy of road
Improvement. Under his administra
tion Polk County baa developed a sys
tem of roads that are not excelled in
any part of the state. Commissioner
Walla waa elected at the same - time
and upon the aame platform. Both
have been good roada enthusiasts, but
have worked to keep down the tax levy

CenacUasaa Objects to Levy.
During the present year a great
amount of work haa been done In the
Improvement of the new Dallas-New-port
road, which runa through Falls
City and the SUets Basin. However,
most of the expense of thla work was
borne by a special tax levy voted In
District No. 31. of which Falls City
forms a principal part. In several other
sections of the county the court, upon
demand of the-cltlsens of the various
dlstrlcta haa allowed the road dis
tricts ail of the money raised In the
district for road purposes Instead of
merely one-half. Councilman West
over, of Dallas, made bis objection to
the conduct of the court In levying a
two-mill road .tax In Dallas for the
general road ftind of the county.
During the present year consider
able engineering work requiring skill
has been necessary, and civil engi
neers outside th County Surveyor's
offlc have been hired In a few In
stance. Cans Declared Trivial.
But from these things has come a
recall movement. Those who take a
disinterested view of the matter are
almost unanimous In their conclusion
that the cause la not aufflclent.

OLD METHODS BACK
Steel Helmet and Armor, for
British Soldier Urged.
SURGEONS ATTEST VALUE
Many Minor Wounds Are Prevent
able, Experts Point Out Paper
Cites How Wind Again Is Fac
tor; Earthnvorks Justified.
LONDON, Aug. 1. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) The London
newspapers are urging upon the British
government the advisability of adopt
ing the steel helmet, as well as some
simple form of protective breast armor
for the troops In France and Flanders.
France, Russia and Germany have been
experimenting along this line for some
time, and France has recently defi
nitely adopted a light steel helmet,
suggesting in design .the headpiece
worn by men-at-arms six centuries
"One of the most remarkable fea
tures of this war," remarks the Times,
"has been the return to older, if not to
ancient, methods. The steel fort has
been discredited and the earthwork
Justified; the strength and direction
of the wind has become a leading
factor once again, as it was in the days
of bows and arrows, since aeroplanes
are affected by the wind and gas at
tacks determined by it; hand grenades,
bombs' and catapults have assumed
real Importance. Finally, the question
of armor for the fighting man himself
has come up for consideration."
The value of a light protective armor
Is attested In several recent articles
in the British medical Journals. Dr.
Devralgne, a French army surgeon,
discusses in the Lancet the result of
his tests of the new French helmet and
gives it his unqualified Indorsement.
"The soldier who wears a helmet," he
says, "escapes light wounds on the
head and even wounds that would in
ordinary circumstances be severe are
Dr. A. J. Hewitt, chief surgeon of
the warship Pegasus In her fighting
with the Koenigsberg. writes In the
Journal of the Royal Medical Service
urging the adoption of some kind oi
protective armor by the navy. One of
the remarkable features of the wounds
which came under his observation, he
uvi was- the smaller penetrating
power of the fragmenta of projectiles
In open spaces like tne upper a ecu.
"One seaman." writes Dr. Hewitt
"had his risrht arm so shattered that
amnutatlon was necessary., but a frag
ment of the same shell hit the brass
buckle of his belt, breaking It but not
even bruising the abdomen. Small
fragments were also the cause of the
loss of four eyes, but I am of the opin
ion that a pair of motor goggles wouia
have saved all these.
"In my opinion a coat of light chain
armor or even leather, with a pair of
goegles made from toughened motor
screen rlass. would be Invaluable.
Dr. Delorme. medical Inspector-general
of the French army, believes that
protective armor would cause a marked
decrease in tne large number
wonnla which have serious results
owing to the development of Infection.

TOKIO. Aug. 1. (Correspondence of
the Associated Press.) Now that the
danger of war with China is over, all
Japan and Korea is .engaged In making
supplies for Russia and ner allies.
The war brought big financial losses
to Japan, but the gaps are being filled
