Special Committee Appears
Before bchool Board and
Urges Cooperation
PROSPECTS HELD POOR
Present Six Per Cent Limitation
Law Automatic Block and
Special Election May
Be Only Solution '
A general rise in salary for all
teachers of the city is the need
felt and expressed by. a commit
tee representing the teachers of
the city. The committee appeared
before the school' board at Its reg
ular meeting last night for the
purpose of getting the cooperation
of the board in the matter of get-
ting the ri3e.
Members of the board were as
one in tbp opinion that the teach
ers of Salem are paid ' lowly in
comparison with teachers in other
towns of the same size, and the
general ; belief was expressed that
the teachers deserve the rise. But
under the present 6 per cent limi
tation the board believes that the
coming budget will not even cover
the present 'salaries for the year.
It was suggested "that the mat
ter be left up to the people in a
special election, but Frank Neer
brought up the objection that the
teachers would have to put across
a special election each year in or
der to maintain the rise. He sug
gested that a movement be initi
ated to, adopt some other method
than the 6 per cent limitation so
that the school deparment could
go ahead and carry out the plans
necessary to the progress of the
Salem school system.
But until such an arrangement
can be ; made, it was suggested
that the teachers put up the mat
ter of a rise in the special election
as a matter of temporary relief
until the low salaries can be reme
died permanently.

shot and killed his widowed moth

23, at their farm home at Kings

Deputy Sheriff Capman ot Sho

mother, Mrs. Ida Putila, after he
had threatened her and his four
brothers and sisters with an axe.
After being handcuffed the boy
leaped through a window of the
farm house and escaped into the
woods, nearby. Deputies failed in
their search to find him.
About 3 o'clock this morning
Arvie returned, home shivering
from the cold and with his hands
badly swollen from the handcuffs.
A younger brother filed these off
and Arvie stayed around home all
day, leaving again at 6 o'clock to
night. .Shortly after 8 o'clock he
returned home and opened a win
dow from the outside. One of the
children told the police that Ar

Delegation of Citizens Presents
Case Before Salem School
Board
That children attending the Sa
lem high school, who refused to
submit to vaccination this week
when a case of smallpox was dis
covered in the school, be permit
ted to return to school was the re
quest of a. delegation of citizens
objecting to vaccination made last
night before the school board at
Its regular meeting.
The biggest argument was
summed up by Mayor Glesy, speak
ing only as a private citizen and
not iu official capacity. He de
clared that the board was not
protecting anybody by not allow
ing those students to return for
the reason that if they are out of
school they, will be running
around town, going to shows and
church and such places, and if
they are capable of exposing any
one to the disease, they wfll.be
exposing those they come into con
tact with outside of the school
On the. other hand. Mayor Giesy
argued, if the students not vac
cinated should return to school.
they would not mix with any but
themselves and those who had
been Vaccinated against the di
sease. ."
The school physician, Dr. Ross,
exceeded his authority in ordering
the vaccination in the opinion of
C. Tibbets, who also spoke on
behalf of the delegation hostile to
vaccination. He contended that
he does not want to "have poison
injected in hi3 system" and brand
ed vaccination as being question
able at least, and in his mind un
hygienic. Percy Cupper expressed it as his
belief that no epidemic was threat
ening the high school, and that!
Dr. , Ross was "over-zealous" in
the matter. He argued that many
of the students did not come into
personal contact with the case of
smallpox, and yet no discrimina
tion was made.
P. JS1. Gregory, speaking on be
half of the board, declared that
Dr. Ross is hired for the purpose
of giving advice Jn medical situa
tions, and that the board feels
justified in accepting, his advice
as none of the members is a medi
cal man himself, and, therefore,
sot able to render a fun decision
himself. He expressed the opin
ion that Dr. Ross had been care
ful with the case, and had not
ordered the vaccination without
first conferring with others.
The argument centered around
the forcing those not vaccinated to
stay out of school for three weeks.
The question was brought up as
to whether or not the students
would be set back in their grades
because of the absence,, but City
Superintendent Hug assured those
present that such students would
be given ample time in which to
make up their work.
Mr. Gregory stated that he be
lieves the majority .of the people
are in favor of the vaccination,
and said that Inasmuch as the
board are elected by the taxpayers
it is up to them to afford them all
the protection possible.
No action was taken by the
board while the delegation was
present, but meeting by them
selves some minutes later, they
moved unanimously that Dr. Ross
and Superintendent George W.
Hug investigate the matter' and
allow those students not vaccin
ated to return to school at 'the
earliest possible moment. The
beard took further action to stand
back of whatever decision Dr
Ross and Superintendent Hug
might reach.

Defense Counsel King Offers
Convict as Witness for
Guard's Insanity
JURY GETS CASE TODAY
Arguments, Pleas and Instructions
1 tp Take Up Majority of -Session;
Gov, Pierce .
Is Absent
An unusual circumstance oc
curred In the circuit court room
yesterday when Tom Murray, on
trial for his life, and himself said
by his counsel to be mentally un
balanced, was called to the stand
by the defense to testify as to the
sanity of William Hlnton. a guard
at the state prison. As far as Is
known this is the first time ia
the annals of the Marion county
court that any defendant pleading
insanity or mental irresponsibility
has ever taken the stand to testify
as to the mental condition of an
other. The defense introduced testi
mony intended to show that Hln
ton, commonly known "at the peni
tentiary as "Trigger Bill," was
not sane. H. H. Rowley of Sa
lem, formerly a guard at the pen
itentiary, was placed on the stand
by the defense and declared that
he had occasion to talk to Hinton
and observe his actions.. "I-
doubted his sanity," Rowley said.
"We frequently discussed what
rights a guard had to shoot a con-.
vict. Hinton apparently believed
that shooting was justified in cir
cumstances other than those at
tending a prison break- I doubt
ed his sanity."
Tom Murray was then placed
on the stand by the defense and -questioned
as to his opinion on
Hinton's mental condition. The
defense evidentlv intended to
show that the' guard placed the
prisoners In fear of their lives. .)
'I drew my own conclusions
Murray said. "I believe that th
man was crazy. No one but a '
crazy man would have fired into
the bull pen.' , .. . . j. .
The defense1 closed its case on I
Tuesday afternoon, and today's
session will be taken up by con-
fereaces between counsel, a sum
mary of the case by each aide, re
buttal by the" prosecution,, and
Judge Kelly's Instructions to the
jury. It is thought that the case
may go to the jury late this after
noon, although possibly not before
Thursday morning.
During the morning session yes
terday the defense sought to show
that Murray was under the Influ
ence of merra-waunna, a drug" ob
tained from hemp, when the fatal
prison break was executed. Three
convicts, Dale Arthur, George.
Willis and Frank Fallon, were
called to the stand by the defense
and declared they had witnessed -the
escape from their cells. They
also said that they had seen Mur
ray smoking merra-waunna ' the
same day Fallon testified that
the defendant used the drug ex
cessively. - 1 . "
A considerable part of the tes-
tlmoriy yesterday was with refer
ence to gunshot" wounds,- and re
lated in particular to the wound in
Oregon Jones head. Donnegan ;
Wiggins, a gun expert, was called
by the defense and told of expert-'
ments he had made with guns In
connection with powder burns.
