Burnide and Morrison Bridges;
Xoh Work Not Affected.
Though Multnomah county com
missioners do not believe the state
highway commission engineers should
assurne the burden of preparing plans
and. supcrvisiing construction of new
bridges across the Willamette, in a
resolution adopted yesterday they ex
pressed the belief that the commis
sion should require its bridge engi
neering department to make plans
and supervise maintenance repairs on
the Morrison and Burnside bridges
without cost to the county.
This attitude is based, said the com
missioners, on the fact that a large
amount of money is paid into state
high-way funds by Portland and Mult
nomah county from which no direct
benegit is received, except in such
manner as suggested. The state high
way commission engineers have con
ducted a thorough investigation into
the condition of the Morrison and
Burnside bridges and it is on their
reports that the commissioners have
decided to reinforce the Morrison
bridge so that it may last ten or 15
years more and to prepare for the
replacement of the Burnside span with
a modern structure.
The resolution asks-' the highway
commission if it will supervise the
maintenance of the bridges, request
ing a reply within ten days.
Permission was sought by sand and
gravel concerns to route their laden
trucks over the Burnside bridge by
driving them in the car tracks, where
the structure is specially reinforced,
at the meeting of the commissioners
yesterday. It was pointed out that
streetcars, loaded, weigh in the neigh
borhood of 30 tons, but under present
regulations : trucks weighing more
than three tons are barred.
The county commissioners referred

the week of June 20, and Dr. S. M.
Strohecker is the man who will be in
charge of arrangements. The said
physician and surgeon, the man with
the knife, is head of the Shrine com
mittee on Red Cross and medical serv
i.ve, which will be as nearly perfect
as it is possible to arrange. Dr.
Strohecker said so himself.
He plans to have his nurses on
hand, ready for any emergency, 24
hours a day. He says he would have
them on duty longer, but he felt the
nurses' union should be limited to 24
hours' service. Not only this, but
there will be an ambulance on hand at
all hours at the Vista house to care
for an emergency case there. Jn case
one ambulance is compelled to bring
into the city an injured or ill visiting

way trip, another ambulance will be

and Dr. Strohecker is hoping and I
praying none of them will have to be
used. He says, however, even though
they are not used, he will be glad to
pay for the reservations just the
same. That's fair enough, say the
When the thousands of Shriners ar
rive in the convention city they will
be given a booklet as soon as they
register. That little booklet will give
all particulars of what to do in case
a physician is needed, how to do it
and when. The booklet is chock full
of instructions and these booklets will
be provided the 150 or more Portland
physicians who have volunteered to
render free service that week; they
will be furnished to all drug stores,
all hotels and information booths
throughout the city, so that every
possible care can be given, and given
quickly, to all who may need help.
"Our number will be Main 234,"
said Dr. Strohecker yesterday, "and.
our headquarters will be in the Elec
tric building. Our service will be a
24-hour service in all cases by nurses
and physicians and it will be free.
We will show Portland's visitors that
we can give them service. Even along
the line of march of the parades we
will be handy with autos and nurses
with immediate attention. Our Red
Cross autos which will be stationed
here and there at intersections and
along the line of march will be fully
equipped to care for each person who
requires such attention. Nothing will
be left undone.
Our physicians are practically plan
ning to lay aside, during the week the
Shrine holds forth, all other business.
with the exception of the most urgent
cases of their regular patients, to
care for the 40.000 or 50,000 Shriners
who will be here.
"We want Portland people to help
us as much as possible. To this end
they are urged to call their physicians
that week only when the most urgent
cases must be attended and thus ease
the trials of our medical men to
great extent, relieving the normal
pressure of their business. Where,
however, one of our physicians is
called upon to act at once-for us, but
is alreadv out on one of his regular
cases, he will notify immediately an
other physician on our list who will
be asked to care for the case. Our
system can't fail."
Japan Ready to Jump.
"Japan is ready to jump onto the
Philippine islands at the drop of the
hat," said Henry F. Schuldt, whole
sale druggist of lloilo, Philippine
Islands, who arrived in Portland yes
terday to arrange for a place to live
during Shrine week. Mr. Schuldt, in
