Thirty-nine Will Take Part in
Chorus in May Festival,
-Is Latest Report. !
Thirty-nine ot the members: ot
tLe Apollo cluh have signed up
for the chorus in the May Festi
yal. that is to be presented here
In - Salem again this year. The
splendid musical presentation of
: last year made each a . profound
impression on thef musical people
of Salem that it was not dlffi
. 'eultto bring In even "so. busy an
' organization as the Apollo club
to-'ioin. " , ,
.The- Apollos hare one more
. concert that also comes In May
though : it will In no sense con
" flict with : the May 'Festival, In
date or In character of program.
The Apollo club has bean gain!
lag steadily In . chorus ability.
. The .program. "Wednesday night
showed? . quality " of sustained
singing, especially In the lighter,
fcofter 1 passages, that would Hot
, hate - been possible a year or two
ago. The? organisation Is gain
ing in singing experience and in
reliability; like a , baseball or
'basketball team, where they
stick; together long; nough to
know instinctively what the other
fellow of the team is ighing to
-mJo. .' Whatever the older "singer
inay 'lose of tfresnnessk of'yolce
and individuality of style is much
more than made up, la accuracy
'and placement. . t -

i : At they're not' allgrampaws,
ln the Apollo ranks. There are
'Borne,' boys there with cheeks as
"soft an$ rosy as 4 a girl's ; there
.'are pompadours that 'are a full
half century from thefrost line.
Some of the members, were sine-
";ing both 'bass and tenor at once,
.'such a little while ago! Some of

' Mdy Opens Discission ; '
. "There Is some misapprehen
sion," said Eddy, launching into
'his speech, ''regarding issues in
Hie late campaign. There was
nothing said as I remember about
any particular form of state gov
ernment.' There was much said
about consolidation and economy
' in the administration, of state af
fairs..! TJut we have had the Hall
1 bill proposing a' commission form
of government and the Johnson-
Carkin bill proposing ' a cabinet
. form. X cannot see where the
present system is extravagant or
1 where the systems proposed could
save, much money. The statement
lnade in a public hearing that one
-..nf the bills (the Hall bill) would
$ave ,11,000.000 a biennlumfc was
aosafd. iYet we were criticised.
for laying that bill on the table
.Had - we passed it with" the 'expec
latien of saving such ' a sum It
would have been the worst thing
'that could have happened to the
governor, for he would have fail
ed' to save that sum under Us op
Washington Case Cited
. Eddy declared that the Wash-
v' lugton state system has cost $90,-
000 a year more than the old, sys
tem, and that tho commission
form in the city of Portland has
proved more costly than the for
mer system. ... '' ' - : ": ; ":
Assailing the cabinet " system.
. Eddy made similar criticism, but
- said it was prefe sable to the com
mission system." He declared. In

It would amount almost to a des

r . JEUU Compromise "
A 'He referred Q r senate bJU ;Q5
as. In' the nature jf a compromises
emphasizing that the state, board
or control will "remain intact.
"To turn the state institutions'
over to . the "governor alone with
the expectation ot his saving 'any
money would be" an absurdity,",
said Eddy. ' V1
Governor's Amendments Accepted
He mentioned that the bill
would create the welfare and the
agricultural departments, and
enumerated some of the depart
ments that wbuld be Included "un
der the consolidation. lie called
attention (o the amendments de
sired by the governor which haye
Senator Eddy laid emphasis on
the . provision " that the three pub,
lie service commissioners shall be
appolntivebyi the governor at the
end of the terms : of the present
members.'!' , j j; I "
The nro'visions placing the tat
commission, ; the fish commission
ahd the -banking department tin
der the control of the governor,
with . power .to remove the super
intendent of : banks, Eddy .said,
were placed in the bill at the re
quest . of the governor. He ex
plained that the bill would, out
of deference ! to State Treasurer
fHoff, ; leave the office of sealer
of weights and measures under
the treasurer until the conclusion
of his term. !
Others lectared Expensive ,
Eddy objected to the 'Carkjn
bill as proposlag too ambitious a
scheme of - government, and aver
red that tha Hall, the Johnson-Carkln'r-
the "Carkin bill would
be -exceedingly expensive. t
, Bill 205, Eddy, called hp prac
tical solution1 and " made no claim
of perfection. ; . y
Senator.; Far r el I asked Eddy ,U
the 1? senators had' estimated any
saving .under the lill. . 1
"Wa have not," said I ( Eddy,
and I confess that it would-be
small.".: .. ; ' t ..
' Johnson Speaks
Senator Johnson, at the outset1
of; his speech, said he would, sup
port the bill because it . approxi
mated his own Ideas,, but that he
could not agree with Eddy on the
question of power of the: gover
nor. Johnson is one of the auth
ors of the t Johnson-Car kin bill
whioh he admitted "has no. chance
to pass,. j . "'. '' . '
"I am thoroughly sold,' I . con
fess," said. Johnson,, "to the cab
inet form, and Oregon will adopt
it In i a y ery : few 15 years. In ten
yjears I believe there will ?be tew
states : that do not have It. ' The
Carkin bill 'more' nearly, meets
my ideas than bill 205, but I don't
know that I am. ever going to get
a , ohance . to" vote either for k or
against' it, so I am going to sup
port 205. I ; J - -
When the Carkin bill comes up
I am going to vote for that too.
I am going down the line." -
tiaving pjp toruovernor
Johnson declared that saving
is .possible under " consolidation,
but said ;BI11 205 doesn"t go far
enough to save money. He enu
merated some , minor departments
that are not covered.
:"The-(fewe8t number of depart
ments ever created under a con
solidation plan in the United
States,' said Johnson,-: Is eight.
Senator ? Clark asked Eddy If
he understood him; to say there
would be f no saving under -' the
bill. i -:-
Eddy Teplied that - It gave suf
ficient favor ' to the governor to
make the saving if it Is possible.

Earlier in the aifternoon when
it appeared that there was to be
little discussion on the measure,
Senator Moser urged the -171 sen
ators .to defend if. Referring to
this action 1 of Moser, Senator
Hare said- that inasmuch as the
Multnomah-senator had practical
ly defied ,'the sponsors ' td "ipeak
he felt, called upon to say a few
words. J'l -.L- i 4
"If we were to bring forth

that he wanted' control of I the
backing, the fish; departments
and the tax departments. ; Why
he should want the banking and
i he j fish departments I r don't
know, but we gave them to him.
Portland Paper Hit
"It has been charged that a
certain bos3 has had too much
to eay about the banking' depart
ment. I don't think this is true,
but- we hav forestalled such; a
condition by incorporating In
this! bill a provision that the at
torney general must be the legal
advisor of all state departments.
I hope that after the legislature
ha adjourned the governor will
tell - the Portland. Journal to go
plumb to helL . ' .."
Much of politics has entered
into this subject c consolidation,
and the Oregonian has suggested
that the Hall bill be passed up
to the governor so he might try
to make good under It."
Moser Opposes Bill ;
Senator Ellis said he would op
pose the bill. 1 ' m
Senator Moser declared that he
could not " understand how 17
senators "had been Inveigled In
to Introducing such a bill as
"At the beginning of the ses
sion," said Moser, "the ; gover
nor said he wanted : tools to work
wtth and the Hall' bill was one
of the tools. I am for the Hall
bill. I wonder it the governor
has evert said that he prefers
bill 205 to the Hall bill. I won
der what good can come from
this , bill when even the senator
from 'Douglas can't see where' it
13 going to save anything."
Machine Said Possible
Moser charged, the 17 senators
with "surrendering abjectly to
Governor , Pierce." "When the
Hall bill was , first introduced."
said Moser, ' "some of these 17
senators came to me as a repub
lican and said that bill would
enable the governor, to build up a
great Democratic machine.; I re
plied that the governor was elect
ed on a platform of economy and
that if the Hall bill enabled him
to institute economy In the state
didn't care how big a machine
he built up or how many times
he was elected.! I

' '- The provision to make the pub

at the end -of -Its present term of
office, Moser said, was the only
good provision in the bill. t
Moser referred to as "jokes'!
the provisions ,. placing the fish
commission and the banking de
partment under 'control of the
governor," and said the fish com
mission was the biggest joke of
