Compromise Measure Gets
by Representatives With
: One Dissenting Vote.
The.Carkln consolidation bill, a
compromise between the Hall and
the. Johnson-Carkln 7 bill, passed
the house yesterday with only one
dlssentinc vote.- A4 h '::-v7- 1
Passage of this bill, which pro
vides a cabinet 7 form of govern
ment, transfers the scene, of con
troversy- over consolidation from
the house to the senate; and com
plicates to an additional degree
the strained . situation existlne
over this problem. ; Consolidation
mils will be a special order today
in the senate. I'lS-77 7 : h ;7
The effect On the position of
Governor Pierce of the passage of

' " Bitter Mght Expected
In view, of the far-reaching'ef-fecf
of 'this measure, the politicaj
controversies involved, the con
flict of interests between those af
fected adversely By "coiisolidation
and. 'those who expect beneficial
results - from such a' move, it is
certain that the most bitter fight
that .has been : waged' to; the sen
ate in the present session will be
provoked Jby the . debate on 1 con
solidation.7 -7 ' ; t . ,
The chief arguments ' ad
vanced, by Representative CarVln
In support of the bill were that
nearly a dozen states have already
adopted some consolidated form
of state government, that nearly
that number of states now hale
under consideration similar bills,
that thla "corporate" form of ad
ministration has proved ' success
ful in the growth of business -corporations,
'that he consolidation
form of government will af ford a
less, chance ofbuildlng a political
machine that the present system
of 'appointing to fill these 100 or
more boards and that In view of
he ."playing of politics" with the
consolida tlou bill in , the ; senate
the house might not. get another
ahce to; saUify 'the -folks: at
homeby .casting fa : vote for con
Jidationv.::.' f,- f.f .'I i ' :
n ;tJarkln Jmade - It plain that he
had ino . intention to make cx
ira.vj.gant claims about ' ' the
amount ' of money that could be
saved under such a consolidation
plan,? but gave? It' as his opinion
that-Vsome" governors" could 6avei
1200,000 a year, while "some gov
ernors" coould not save so much.
Objection to the Hall hill was
found by Carkin 7 for .the reason
that it Interferes :wlth .constitu
tionally created ofrics; 7 "
. 4 Efforts of members to secure
amendments which would 'exempt
the labor commissioner;' the state
industrial: accident commissioner
and .the food and dairy commis
sioner failed to materialize be
cause it was pointed out - that
amendments would undoubtedly
be made in the . senate and that
ample opportunity wpuld be given
for consideration . of these pro
posals In the upper house. . 1 . --
UtigatTon Avoided . .
- In answer to 'questions pat ' to
him by Speaker ; Kubll. Carkin
stated that the possibilities of ad
ditional litigation;,?' a referendum
to the people with the consequent
special election and also the pos
sibility, ot the governor .being
forced to call a special session to
take care of appropriations made
at this, session, had all feeen care
fully considered and avoided in
the-bill. ;; ' r ' ,
7 When . Representative - Wood
ward suggested 4hat the members
bear in mind that a consolidation
bill was' part of the governor's
program and Implied, that it was
the duty -of the house to past
such a bill. Tlepresentatlves Gra
ham and Kirkwood made it deal
that as far as they were concern
ed the. governor's wishes In the
matter made little difference' to
them- as. long as it was beneficial
legislation. ' ' ' " "7 - ?
. Mrs.; Simmons pointed out that
If -"attention' was paid to the "re
quests ot all the commissions and
boards affected, there. would be no
consolidation and said that "con
solidation ' could; only. c6me with
consolidation.'" .7 : .. .' - ';. v;

,7 Dr.' J..M.' Walters', pastor of a
church in Eugene.' was the prin
cl pal; speaker a.t the Rotary club
meeting; -Wednesday ' noon. He
chosen Rotary ethics, as : his topic,
and spoken at length and with
splendid effect on' the importance'
of being interested in and in, love
with one's Job. To be at work fbf
the money there is in the job, is
something;.. 'to ' work "because ' the
boss is looking, Is something; but
to work because one's work is on's
own contribution to all, human
kind, is the whole thing ot life,
as he presented the Rotary creed.
1 "It's a great thing to get aboard
tbe.world and 7m6ve with it, in
stead of getting off it and having
it run! past; you," said the speak
er. He hasn't. very much use for
the plain or fancy - hollerer who
does nothing much but yell and
make a noise. Some, of them even
are In the' legislature, he said:
there!, and -elsewhere, there are
loud raucous-voiced men who do
practically; nothing else but hol
ler, they don't know what for.v
: 'The . strength of a nation Is not
In Its- numbers, or in its armies.
but In1 the breed of its people,"
was . the : speaker's conclndlne
thought. "It is our Job to Improve
our breed, 780 that .. wqmen and
cmiaren and Everybody shall be
safer tand better cared for, be
can.se of what we have done fox
sbcietr at large." - ; ' 7
