holder in the Industrial Hospital association of Portland and
Astoria and will be manager of that concern. '
Jlr. Kirk was appointed a -
mission by Governor Olcott shortly after Olcott became gov
ernor in 1919. Prior to that he wad engaged in -newspaper
work. "
Kirk3 term as" a member of the commission expired Jan
uary 1, this year, but he remained on the commission at the
request of Governor Pierce.' 'Whether he. would have been
reappointed by Pierce nas beens a question about the state
capital, but there have been
expected to name a Democrat In his place. I he governor
says he received about 60 applications for the place.
Jorgensen S t o r Entered
Last Night; Officers beek
The Jorgensen Tire shop, 130
South High, street, owned by Ira
Jorgensen, was entered last night
5nd tSe cash register riHed of
SO. As far as could be ascertain
ed at a late hour last night, nQth
lng but cash' from the till had
been taken- The' , ronnery is
thought to have occurred about il
o'clock. '
jTdr. Jorgensen, who bad just re
turned from the theater with his
family, stopped la the store on
his way home for moment and
found the side door had been
pried open. From this jdoor the
thief had gained entrance, to the
storehouse where the cash regis
ter was kept. All of the cash in
the register was taken, although
a number - of checks deposited in
the-' drawer were left.
The work was evidently that of
someone who' was familiar with
the store, according to Mr. Jorgensen.-
1 The method of entrance
and fact that they had gone di
rectly to the storeroom, touching
nothing else la the store to all
appearances, '-. are the grounds he
bases this belief on.
Local authorities began work
lag on the "case. Immediately. At
a late fhour last - night, however,
no arrests had been made
