mill of large capacity 13 in Salem now; two more knocking
at our doors. There is water power running to waste near oy
and easily and cheaply developed, up to perhaps 150,000
horse power. Parke Channing,the eminent copper expert,
says that "unless new deposits of the red metal aret found we
shall be threatened in fifteen years with a shortage 'of cop
per' The mines of the Santiam region, at Salem's front
door, have enormous stores of copper, silver, zinc, gold and
lead oresenough, developed, to justify a city larger than
the present Salem, and numerous mining camp towns. There
are vast opportunities for irrigation here, promising im
mensely increased production of many crops ,
1 And the fact is that, outside the range ot citrus fruits
and tropical vegetables, this district is all but self sufficient
in its possibilities. .
t We need a larger Salem and larger surrounding towns
tp aid in furnishing seasonal help on the land in harvest
times; ancf, indeed, there is practically seed time and harvest
here every month in the year." The cry is for more people,
in the cities and in the country; people with brawn and
brains; men with vision and i capital or who can command
capital. i: '

Her mother didn't like her : red
hair. ' 1 ;
"Your father," shed say,
"Looked exactly that way;
That color samply can't bear!"
Norine tossed her hair out of
her eyes.; "Look, at your hair,"
scolded her mother. "You look
like some wild thing. It's bad
enough to have your hair ' red
without having It look such a
metes all the time." M A .'.
Norine went out ot the room,
her lips tight together, t It was
sometimes pretty hard to keep
from "Ulking back." It wasn't
her faulty that her -hair was bo
red and curly." She knew , that
the1 main reason her mother : dis
liked her hair was because it was
o much like her father's her
father who bad died' when she
was a tiny girl, and whom her
mother always spoke of as
"shiftless." . . ;
"Just like your father," she
nagge'd, day after day, whenever
Norine did anything that d!s
pleased her, which was very of
ten. Norine sat on the steps, her
chin In " her hand and Rooked
across the wide prairie. She
wondered -if she'd ever suit her
mother. It was plain J enough
that, her father neveT had been
able to.; Finally, she got up and
gave a low ., whistle. . Her : big
sheep dog came 'rushing V across
the yard. ; Together they ran
across the road and over the
prairie, , into the gathering dusk.
There - was nothing like a race
with "Shep" to bring up the cor
ners of Norine's mouth.
Norine wished : she could just
run on and on forever, but she
remembered that her mother ex
pected her to sprinkle some
clothes for ironing, and so she
trotted . back.
As she was about to cross the
rOad again, a. big car "swerved
around the' corner, its headlights
shining full upon her. almost
blinding her. She stopped. short.
So did the car. f -
"This is the road to Liberty
ville?" called a man's voice. : ; .
"Yes." it is." " -'f ; ;
. ThankSi , Do you mind stand
ing still Just as you are, .for a
minute?" ? Norine' stood still,
startled. The man turned to the
woman at' his , side. '.'Did .you

exclaimed. "And mu h Un Plf

New Body Will Leave That
Duty Entirely in Hands
The (state parole hoard at its
meeting Thursday adopted a pol
icy of having nothing whatever,
to do with the pardoning of pris
oners in the state penitentiary.
Heretofore, particularly under tbe
previous administration, the par
ole board has freely accepted the
responsibility of i recommending
pardons to the governor.
The decision of the new board
to keep its Hands off of pardons
arises out of the wholejsa'e par
doning and paroling of prisoners,
the commutation of sentences and
the restoration of citizenship by
Acting Governor floy W. RItner
during the month of December
fast while he was acting governor
of the state. A very large per
centage of the pardons granted
by Ritner were; on recommenda
tion of the parole board.
While the law does not express
ly inhibit the parole board from
recommending pardons, j there is
no provision in the law extending
to the board that authority.
Ward "A. Irvine, secretary to
Governor Pierce and a member
of the parole board, said that it
would be the policy of the new
board to keep within th'e law.

'Other witnesses accused the

said they had been threatened
with death unless they kept away

Otis Glenn, assistant attorney
