The interviewer finds indeed 1
good material in Mrs. Ada B. '
Millican of Prinville, who spent 1
several days in Salem this week,
for Mrs. Millican talks animatedly
on any subject, and any subject
that she chooses to consider is
made-interesting by her very in
dividual point of view.
When approached during her
visit here. Mrs. Millican chose to
discuss times when the Oregon
legislature was younger than it is
now, in comparison with the pres
ent. She happened to have a
pretty thorough understanding of
the topic, because of the tact that
it was her privilege to be one of
the first women to serve in the
Oregon biennial session.
At that time," said Mrs. Mil
lican. reminiscently. "a woman or
girl in the state legislature was
looked upon as something of a
curiosity,, and the term of 'petti
coat session' came to be rather
generally used. '
Mrs. Millican had a position in
the senate, la the department of
enrolled bills, and It was said of
her work that it was of excellent
quality, her chirography being
likened to type, in its clearness.
It was a short digression to her
newspaper experiences in the Cap
