and to each of the senators 'and
representatives . in congress from
the state of Oregon."
The memorial was approved in
the - senate with one dissenting
vote. Senators Moser and Hunter
spoke briefly in favor of the me
morial, while Senator Norblad
opposed it.
In presenting the memorial Sen
ator Hunter said the people of
Eastern " Oregon were deeply in
t pr'ri in, the bridge project, and
hoped that no structure would be
-orited which would interfere
with commerce in the Columbia
Senator Moser said that reports
received from Washington indi
cated that the bridge would be
authorized by congress, and that
the only question at issue at the
.present time was that of provid
ing safeguards which would insure
against interference with naviga
tion in the Columbia river. He
said the port of Portland had
pledged itself to pay the costs of
all "of these safeguards in event
the plana and specifications for
the structure were not satisfac
tory to the port district.
"The memorial is fair." said
Senator Mdser. "and should have
the support of every member of
thU senate."
Senator Norblad said it would
be a mistake to adopt the memor
ial, lie averred, that the city ot
Portland apparently was opposed
to. the construction of any.. hridgs
across the Columbia river at Long-
view, in that it feared that such a
span would detract traffic from
that,' city.
"If la my opinion," said Senator
Norblad,. "that the Longview
bridge would not harm Portland
nor any other section of the state
of Oregon. On the contrary it
would stimulate traffic and open
lip a vast empire at the mouth of
the Columbia river."
Senator Norblad concluded his
remarks by stating that he sus
pected there was a 'nigger In the
wood pile.'
This was denied by Senator Mo
ser who declared that the large
majority of Portland people favor
ed 'construction of the proposed
bridge,, but. were insistent that
commerce in the Columbia river
Should' be safeguarded.

Former Member Of Board
Gives Talk Before Kiwanis
Club Luncheon 7
That Oregon's parole system be
retained under the present law or
in some manner which will pre
serve its benefits to the individ
uals concerned and ti the state
prison system itself, was urged by
W. E. Delzell, formerly an ex
officio member of the parole
board as private secretary to Gov
ernor Walter M. Pierce, in an ad
dress before' the Salem Kiwanis
club Tuesday noon.
Oregon's constitution provides
that the penal laws be adminis
tered for reformatory purposes,
not In a vindictive spirit, Dilzell
declared. Persons who are sent
enced to prison terms are mueh
like any other group! of people,
and there comes a time in the
term of most convicts; when they
are truly reformed. ; If paroled
then, they may be saved to society,
if forced under those, conditions
to serve out their terms, they will
be discharged usually as hardened
criminals, Delzell said. '
The parole is open only to first
offenders and persons not convict
ed of crimes of violence. Delzell
pointed out. That the system is a
success, is shown by the fact that
85 per cent of the convicts paroled
''make good," only l per cent

that they must be returned to the

lauded by Adjutant General White
as an efficient and capable em
ployee. In addressing Governor Patter
son following his deposal, Major
Simpson said: j
''I have been in the employ of
the government for more, than .10
years, and this Is the first time
that I was discharged. I regret
that my services as secretary of
the bonus commission have not
been satisfactory, and am sorry
that I was not given an oppor
tunity to resign."
The motion to depose Major
Simpson was seconded by Secre
tary of State Kozer, wbo also pre
sented the motion which resulted
in the election of Mr. jMoores as
secretary of the commission.

that he was of the. opinion that at

should be employed by the com
mission in order that all lands of

be investigated.
"There should be a thorough in
spection and appraisal of all lands
upon which the bdnus commission
authorizes loans," Governor Pat

ment from the four groups.
"Neither the Crisp nor the As
well bill provides means to main
tain a domestic price Independent
of the world price on any com
modity, when it is necessary; the
Haugen bill does.
"The Haugen bill is the only
one that lays the basis for a per
manent continuing policy for farm
marketing. The Crisp bill is
drawn to function only as 'emer-1
gencies develop. The Aswell bill
turns the marketing over to gov

political control is established by
both the Crisp and Aswell bills: in

attacking the president's policy,
reiterated that America is "delib

into war with Mexico." Ite assert

brought Mexico into his message
for no other purpose than to "put
her in a bad light." Mr. Coolidge

The landing of American forces
in Nicaragua was characterized
"as the most deplorable event in
the last century," by Representa
tive Lozier, who added:
"Within the past few weeks
good work of past secretaries of
state has been destroyed and we
are flaunting in the face of the
Latin-American republics a big
stick. The president has heeded
the cry of big business men in
Nicaragua and Mexico. He has
landed marines and now is await
ing some overt act on which to
predicate a' declaration of war."
Representative Wood decried
the talk of war and asserted his
belief that "there is no danger if
the governments of Mexico and
Nicaragua heed the warning."
