Bond Issue of $i500 Said
Justified to Save Rental
of Other Offices
Council Chamber May be
Moved to - Third Floor;
Committer Considers
Reconstruction of the city ball
Interior so as to provide adequate
space for city offices, . some of
which are now located in rented
quarters, arid In the Interests of
general convenience for the city
departments, was a project pro.
posed at Monday night meeting
of the city council.
Alderman W. H. Dancy. who
made the proposal, said It might
necessitate a bond Issue of In the
neighborhood of $15,000, but that
the saving would Justify this
move. The matter was referred to
the building committee of the
Changes proposed Involved the
fitting bp of a new council cham
ber of ' the ' third floor, which
would i not Interfere .with the po
lice and firemen's gymnasium as
there is ample room for both. The
present council room would be di
vided up Into offices.
Building Poorly
Arranged, Disclosed
Tf Taiuw 1furrd that the
JLimUj hall is the most poorly ar
ranged public building ne has ever
observed. One of the Improve
ments planned would be the group
ing of the' fireman's quarters in
stead of ' having them spread
through the building as at present.
Even before this rearrangement
is decided upon, one city officer
now occupying rented quarters
will move Into the city hall. Thte
Is the building inspector, who now
has an office in the First National
bank bunding. The council voted
Monday night to assign him space
in thk city engineer's office, on
motion of Alderman Townsend. It
was stated that his office was dif
ficult for persons seeking building
permits to find, and that theee
persons freqently found the office
locked, the inspector being away
en inspection trips. In the city en
gineer's of flee this difficulty win
be overcome as someone, is always
there. Mayor Llvesley said that
when the Inspector took office, he
inquired if there was any room
in the eity hall and was told that
there wae not.
Gasoline Purchase
Contract Approved
The council also decided to go
Into the gasoline business, but
strictly for its own departments
It adopted the recommendation of
a special committee composed of
Aldermen Patton, OUara and
Rosebraugh. to enter Into a con
tract with the Shell company for
three years' supply of gasoline and
to install a storage tank and pump
near the city hall. The saving will
amount to $1314.50 a year, the
committee estimated.
This proposal drew the opposi
tion of Alderman Hawkins and
Purrlne, who said they feared the
Issuance of gasoline would be lax
and enough more would be. used
to eat up the theoretical saving. .
Previously the council had vot
ed to purchase a bookkeeping ma
chine and system for $1805. which
together with installation and in
struction would practically use up
the $2200 appropriated for the
purpose. Patton had objected to
this move, recommended by the
ways and means . committee of
which Hawkins is chairman.' Pat.
ton charged that Hawkins' oppo
sition to the gasoline purchase
plan was caused by his opposition
to the bookkeeping change.
The council instructed City At-
Ttorney Fred Williams to appeal
Ssue case of Berger vs. city of Sa
JS lem. which the plaintiff won In
4 circuit court. It involTad onlr In-
f. directly the legality of the present
j toning ordinance.
The Salem Ad club was granted
permi:son to close Court street
downtown on the occasion of the
annual spring opening, March 21,
its request being to hold an auto
( show there. Associated Charities
i were granted the use of Church
street opposite the postoffice for
carnival attractions, April 2f to
; May 1.
The council accepted the bids of
the American Rubber company
and the Howard Cooper corpora
tion for fire hose, and held up bids
on other fire f igbtiog equipment.

These facta,- presented Monday
by J. W. Helwick to the chamber:
of commerce, were the highlights
of an address la which the speak
er outlined the history of the local
community, sketched the develop
ment of the present problems and
presented their solution as llecid
ed upon' by his company.

Helwick said, would assure ade

take would be sunk In the main
channel of the river and would be
attached to a sufficiently large
pipe line and pump to bring all
needed supply Into the city mains
and into the South Salem reser

part of the construction program

Helwick pointed out that the
unsatisfactory condition of the
water supply last November and
December was really fortunate for
Salem citizens inasmuch as ' It
brought to a head the need for
Improvements to the water system

prove them Immediately.

strong layer of rock, was encoun
lerea. xnis is to be bored in for
25 feet with the hope of striking a

auxiliary to the city's supply from

speaker, who polated 'oat that a

necessary to pipe water here and
to this $200,000 would be added
for a new filtration system. Moun
tain water must be filtered as well
as river water, said Helwick.

outlined the development of the

The revolutionary movement In
Mexico, which flared up with dra

developed Monday Into a struggle
between the ; central government
at Mexico Citv and a powerful
group of military commanders cen

pected to be slow.
From the northernmost part of
Mexico in the state of Sonora came
a definite revolutionary statement
that the aim of the movement was
not against the central government
as such, but was directed against
the influence which former Presi
dent Calles is charged with still
wielding in the government.
Demand Made That
Callea Iave Country
General Fansto Topete, gover
nor of Sonora, and a close friend
of the late President-Elect Obre
gon sent a message to the associat
ed Press In which he Bald that the
revolutionaries had demanded that
Calles leave the country and "de
sist from the direction of its af
fairs." "When Callea leaves Mexico and
those In authority agree to consti
tutional conduct of the govern
ment, this revolution will die a
natural death," he said.
In Mexico City the government
was preparing- energetically to
combat the rebels, General Calles,
himself noted as a military com.

jailed out of his retirement to take

Herbert Hoover Takes Place
as Head of United States
Associated Press Staff Writer
The American people today with
solemn ceremony placed Herbert
Hoover In the highest, office with
in their ,giff-rrthat of President of
the United States.
With a pelting, stinging rain
falling, he swore to uphold and
defend the constitution of th
United States, kissed a verse In
the Bible and began the gravest
duty ever demanded of him In his
life of far-flung activity. And,
turning to his inaugural address
he made a pledge to enforce all
laws. Including the prohibition
amendment, to the full extent of
his ability.
Into office with this California
engineer and orphaned Quaker
went Charles Curtis whom fate
had taken from an Indian reser
vation and elevated to the vice-
presidency. The two then rode
down the historic route from the
capitol to the White House, hare
headed, raln-beatcn. but smiling
their happiness over one of the
most remarkable and enduring
ovations given any president or

educatloa by the sUte senate
Monday afternoon after refusing
to confirm his appointment Sat

Klepper and Upton were the only
votes cast against confirmation
Saturday night 15 votes were cast
against him. . .
In the face of certain confirma
tion by the senate. Klepper and
Upton made their last ineffectual
protest. - Senator Upton's only
comment was his explanation of
his vote.
Private Conference Many
Early today the governor began
sending for senators. There were
long distance conversations be
tween Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall,
president of the university, and
anlverslty friends la the lobby.
The doctor sent word that Starr's
confirmation was advisable.
The refusal to confirm Starr
Saturday was not based on -a
Question of fitness or Qualifica
tion, for It was generally agreed
that he hi better informed on the
normal schools thaa any other
man in the state.
Long Relationship Shown
Gov, Patterson sent a message
to the senate In which he said he
wished to lay certain facts before
that body. 'The message recount
ed that the governor had known
Starr for 25 years first as a
teacher in Polk county and later
as county school superintendent,
an office to which he was elected
tor eight years. He was secretary
of the single board of regents of
normal schools. He has been ap
pointed .. by three governors and
the appointments confirmed by
the senate, the last time at the
opening of the present session.

Mellon and Davis
Already Confirmed
Whether the president win sub
mit the names of Andrew W. Mel
lon, as treasury secretary, and
James J. Davis, as labor secretary,
who are holdovers from the Cool
id ge administration, still was un
determined tonight, but with the
probabilities that they would not
be sent in with the other eight as
they once have been confirmed.
As he gathered his family about
him at dinner this evening at the
White House, -Mr. Hoover found
himself at the end of the most
eventful day of even his eventful
career. It brought him the -plaudits
of the multitude, the highest
office within the gift of his coun
trymen and imposed burdens
which he shouldered In the full
knowledge of the grinding
weight. .
There was much gnashing ' of
legislative teeth here Monday as
the full Import of injunction pro
ceedings begun Saturday: became
impressed on the minds of Oregon
If they realised, however, that
the primary purpose of the Injunc
tion suit Is merely to determine
the legal status of the resolution
by which they attempted to vote
themselves five dollars per day
extra' expense" money, and that
they cannot be prevented from
receiving the money If they are le
gally entitled to it. the lawmakers
gave no Indication of this realis
ation. , ':
Pressing legislation 'waited
while soloas pondered . how they
would cope with the situation.
Bach member of the house con
tributed five dollars toward a fund
to be used In fighting for the mon
ey that they consider rightfully
theirs. A committee of five was
appointed to represent the legisla
ture in litigation. This committee
consists of Angell," custodian of
the funds, Lonergan, Peters,
Briggs and Metsker. f
. The senate assumed a watchful
waiting attitude. There was no in
dication that its members would
refuse the five-dollars per day ap
propriation In case the injunction
suit were defeated, however. . -
Earlier in the day 12 house
members were appointed by Speak
er Hamilton to formulate a' plan
for resisting the suit, and report- j
ed back findings and recommen
dations of the afternoon session.!
The members of the committee
were Lonergan, ehalrman,' Angell,
Bronaugh, Burdick, ' Bynon, Car-,
kin," Haslett, Johnson of Union,
LockwQOd, Norton and Winslow,
A resolution, submitted by the
committee and adopted without a
dissenting vote, was based, on the
assumption that, the Oregon state
grange was behind the injunction
suit, although W. A. Jones, mas
ter of Pomona grange, appears in
dividually as the plaintiff. .The
resolution criticises the grange for
not making known its contention
on the five dollars a, day: appro
priation, - before starting . suit.
Those net financially interested In
the outcome of the suit regarded
this contention as naive In view of
widespread criticism 'that had
come from' many, sources against
what was regarded by many as an
obviously Illegal salary garb.

Constructive Work
Of Session Reviewed
This session of the Iectslatur
has been flayed and laahort h.
people all over Oregon, Just as
have all sessions In the past, but
when the smoke has cleared, and
these people have had an oppor
tunity to study what has been '
done here, this past 50 days will
go down in history as among the
most constructive ever spent in
Salem by a legislature," declared
Speaker Hamilton, Just before he
struck the gavel for final adjourn
ment. Speaker Hamilton pointed to
the constructive work access,
pllshed by this session, declaring
that upon this foundation a sub
stantial and highly beneficial pro
gram could be rounded out by the
next meeting two years hence. He
spoke especially of the tsx pro
gram as worked out upon the
basis of the recommendations
made by- the property tax relief
Thanks Members
For Cooperation
Members were thanked by the
speaker for their cooperation ard
assistance during the 50 days, and
several members also spoke la ap

John Carkin of Medford. under
whose direction the tax program
has been worked out, spoke brief
ly, giving the credit for the ac
complishments of the group ef
whieh he was head to those asso
ciated wltb him.
The house had little to do ea
this final day, and except for a
slight flurry caused by introduc
tion of H. B. (03, by Kubli, which
would have placed the Income tax
measure on the ballot, little warm
debate was noted. ' This measure
was indefinitely postponed.
During the day the house kilted
