The Comic Strip Mind
WE are fast developing the comic strip mind. A speaker
or writer must wisecrack to get attention. The editor
who cannot think in terms of the smart alec is set down as a
dud., Modern comedy is a looseiy-hung chain of snappy come
backs. Drama to succeed must be vodevil dialogue. The lec
turer who is thoughtful is a failure and the college professor
who does any professing is rated a bore and a Door. Slogans
and catch-phrases are the sign-boards of the new age of men
tality. In the eiehteenth century the classic couplet was the po
lite form of literary expression
couplet was the toast of the coffee houses. Here is a sample
"Be not ti e first by whom tbe new is tried,
Nor vet the last to lay the old aside."
In the early nineteenth century the sonorous phrases of
the orator marked the height. Listen to Webster:
"Let their lat feeble and lingering glance rather behold the
glorious ensign of the republic, now known and honored throughout
the earth, still full high advanced, its arms and trophies streaming
In their original luster, not a stripe erased or polluted, nor a single
tar obscured," eti-.
The literary tempo has quickened now to a sharp stac
cato. Writers must have a champagne "pop" in their vint
age. Even hack writers must have a racy journalistic style.
Illustrative of this quick-step literature, plainly the product
of the shallow, comic-strip mind, is this example from the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
"l". S. news-llngo seems set for big change, due to spreading
Influence of nosy, one-syllable tabloid, snappy theatrical paper Va
riety, vibrant newsmagazine Time and others ol the same ilk. Idea
is to rope 'em In, hold 'ein, with no spillover of extra words to puzzle
bu&y average reader. Style similar to this sample now evoluting
backed by scribes as surefire hit on Bway and In sticks. Old flowing
periods of classic writers Addison & Steele out of date in fast-moving
peppy civilization, which craves something snippy, snappy, terse. Old
stuff may be fine for subpenas and college libraries (Harvard, Yale,
etc.) but It's the bunk for trolley rider and drug store lunchery pa
tron, grabbing off news between'bumps and bites. High are hopes of
condensed literature backers of putting new brisk, staccato lingo over;
perhaps get people talking that way. Tough on poets, tho, and
52-a-word men, but the mob eats It op."
The evil is not merely in the style but in the obscuring
of truth by the glib phrase. The wisecrack may travel far;
but it may be utterly false. Such expression puts a premium
on superficial thinking and destroys the ability of the read
ing public to think a thing through critically and carefully.
A kingdom may be tossed off for an epigram.
So great has been the public demand for this product
that wisecrackery factories are in operation. A comic strip
cartoonist may keep a half-dozen smart alex busy coining
snappy sayings. Such production is largely a matter of men
tal gymnastics. Just as acrobats attain their skill in contor
tion through long practice, so the professionals train their
minds to do hair-pin turns with words and thoughts. The
result has come to be that most of our literature, both in
books, magazines and newspapers is but the exhibition of
We scarcely dare predict what the literary output of the
coming generation will be, feeding as it now is on comic
strips, college humor movie captions and "colyums." But it
can scarcely be worse than at present.
Iodine and Idiocy
IODINE and idiocy, what is the connection? It is this:
goiter is a frequent cause of dwarfing and idiocy. Iodine
is a preventative for goiter. So iodine treatment is recom
mended for children in the section between the Great Lakes
and the Pacific. That is the "goiter belt" of this country,
just as pellagra has been most prevalent in the south. Why
this is the goiter belt is hard to say. Perhaps the, old ice
sheet deprived the soil of its normal iodine content. It is
hard to tell. There are some places where the disease is more
prevalent than others. In the Methow valley in northern
Washington, for instance, it is common. The theory there is
that the glaciers which carved

disfigurement and illness. Miss Edith L. Weart, writing in
the North American Review, describes the goiter control

waged in Michigan and Ohio with very wonderful results.

BITS for BREAKFAST
By R. J. HENDRICKS
About Bishop Simpson
Continuing the account of his
visit to the second annual Ore
gon conference of the Methodist
church, which was held in the Bel
knap settlement, then the second
point In importance in the Metho
dist church of the territory; Sa
lem being the first.
Bishop Simpson had arrived at
the conference, after a night ride
through mud in a wagon, the
driver of which got lost in the
woods around where is now Buena
Vista, and a horseback ride of 20
miles from Corvallis, over only ex
cuses for roads and he appeared
at the conference well bespattered
with mud. That did not feaze him
much, however, for, even after he
had swayed with his eloquence the
greatest crowds np to that time
gathered in America and Europe,
and had attained the highest em
inence of his day in oratorical
genius, he was quite careless In
his dress and he was called "the
ugly man who became beautiful
when he spoke."
Taking tip the thread of the
story at his arrival at the back
woods Oregon conference, Bishop
Simpson wrote his wife: "At the
close of prayer someone an
nounced my name; going forward,
an appointment was arranged for
half-past two. My place of lodging
was a mile and a half off, and.
getting my dinner, it was time for
preaching. Preached on 'Oneness'
and ordained three deacons." .
m m u
That is what he wrote his wife.
But those who were thTe heard
such a sermon as they remember
ed the longest days they lived.
One woman, a leader among the
pioneers, said the words of the
sermon were ringing in her ears
and those of the prayer of Bishop
Simpson that day were singing in
her heart 50 years after the mem
orabe Sunday. He preached there
the same sermon that he delivered
later when in London to the larg
est church gathering in all Chris
tendom that is, about the same
sermon, for Bishop Simpson never
wrote his sermons, nor even had
notes that he carried to the plat
form or pulpit. What was none too
good for the pioneer people of the
Oregon backwoods was good
enough for a great British gath
ering, made up largely of assem
bled ministers with long titles and
degrees. Enough has been writ
ten about that one sermon to fill
a fair sized book.
Bishop Simpson came back to
Salem and preached here. Under
date of April 10, 1854, from Port
land, he wrote his wife: "I reached
this city on Saturday morning, aft-
ilous Journey to the Cascades and
Dalles of the Columbia river. I
reached my conference on the
Sabbath of its session, after hav
ing traveled all Saturday night,
my guide missing his way in the
woods. Conference closed on Tues
day afternoon; that evening I rode
twenty miles on horseback to Cor
vallis; spent three days waiting
for a steamboat, but it was" sunk
on its passage np, and I started
on horseback to Salem, some 32
miles distant; but my horse gave
out, and I was compelled to walk
part of my Journey. (The greatest
bishop Methodism has produced,
probably walked Into Salem Sat
urday, March 25. 1854.) There I
pent Sabbath, preaching twice;
addressed the church on Monday
night; attended to missionary
business Monday and Tuesday,
and on Wednesday left on a steam
er for Oregon City. Thursday from
Oregon City-to this place (Port
land); Friday by steamer to the
Cascades, on my way to the Dalles,
to look after mission property.
There the steamer above the Cas
cades was broken, and, after hav
ing waited for a sail-boat until
Monday, X was obliged to hire an
I Indian canoe, and with Brother
OREGON STATCS11A W. Caferu
Pearne, who accompanied me, to
row up the river. About ten o'cock
at night we reached the Indian
camp, where as it rained, we were
compelled to lodge in a miserable
Indian hut, among the filthy na
tives, until the morning light ap
peared. The next evening we
reached the Dalles. There spent
Wednesday. Thursday tried to get
down the river in a schooner, but
the wind being adverse, after
struggling for twenty hours, and
being nearly capsized, and escap
ing by a hair's breadth from be
ing dashed upon the rocks, we left
the schooner and took a small
boat or skiff. We rowed all night,
except three hours, when the crew
gave out. Making a fire upon the
shore, miles from any house, we
threw ourselves upon the ground,
and I had a good, sweet sleep. Fri
day reached the Cascades, and Sat
urday, by steamer, returned here.
''Should Providence spare my
life, I expect to reach San Fran
cisco on my return in the next ten
or twelve days, and it is now high
ly probable that I shall sail from
thence by the steamer the first
of May. If so, and Providence
should see it best to keep me from
accident and disease, I may reach
New York the latter part of May."
His biographer quoted Bishop
Simpson as writing to his wife:
"Passed the governor's residence,
eight miles from Salem; came to
the top of a hill overlooking the
Willamette valley at Humphrey's
ferry," etc. As Bishop Simpson had
met Governor John W. Davis at
the Salem wharf, it was assumed
by a number of friends of the Bits
man that he passed the residence
of the then governor of Oregon
on his way south, and this seemed
plausible, since tho governor and
the bishop had been neighbors in
But the Bits man has concluded
that Governor Davis did not live
eight miles south of Salem; but
John P. Gaines, who was governor
before him, did. Gaines was ap
pointed by President Taylor, and
assumed office Aug. 18, 1850. He
took np a donation land claim
about eight mfles south of Salem,
and built a home there. The old
house that was the governor's
mansion in those days was built
a few rods east of the present
main road running to the Sky
line orchard, and only a little way
northeast from the school house in
that pioneer district; opposite the
old home of the John P. Robert
son family: Part of the old house
that wan the governor's mansion
tiiej still stands. It is on the Ralph
E. Cartwright place. It contains
tho historic fireplace. It is the part
that stand? east and wes. The ad
diion on the west, running north
and south, was built late; per
haps by W. W. Culver.
The Governor Gaines house -of
the early fifties extended a good
many feet to the east, in addi
tions that were occupied at least
in part by the Gaines slaves; prob
ably an inheritance of Mrs. Gaines.
The tradition is that the Gaines
slaves were (reed when the gov
ernor eame to Oregon. Also,' the
old timers say, at least two of
those negro slaves died there, and
were buried on the place.
Next south of the Gaines dona
tion land claim was tffat of Christ
opher Moore; some ot the family
still owning at least part of that
land. Next south was the claim of
Thomson Ward, next that of A. M.
Belt, and next that of Elijah Wfl
kerson. The Wllkerson land must
have been on or near tho top of
the hill south of the Skyline orch
ard, from which Bishop Simpson
saw such a beautiful scene of the
Willamette valley. You go out
some fine day, dear reader, and
yon will agree with the descrip
tion of the great bishop; with
much to add for the later embell
ishment of clvtlixed life.

which may giv some key to the
date, ot dates. There Is good au
thority for the statement that the
highest water was between Decem
ber 15 and 20, 1861. The Bits man
is not taking sides yet. The ques
tion Is open for debate. Every pio
neer has the floor, or any descend
ant of a pioneer.
No legislative enactment of re
cent years has caused so much
bother as the high school trans
portation act that was put on the
statute books by the last legisla
ture. We think that the law was
prompted by the best of motives,
namely that of promoting the ed
ucational facilities ot our sons
and daughters; yet it Is proving
a bone ot contention in many
The chief reason for this un
favorable result is the fact that
ambitious schoolmasters, who are
eager to build up the attendance
ot their schools, are attempting to
utilize the law for their advant
age rather than for the advance
ment of the high school children's
So we have the spectacle ot
rival towns and cities competing
one with the other for children
who lire on the border line of
neutral territory; and sometimes
we see cities reaching right ont
into a neighbor's territory to take
children that really do not be
long to them.
The consequence of these rival
ries is a real problem for the
county school boundary boards
that have the responsibility of de
fining the bus routes.
We think that it is the purpose
of the law to give the high school
children of Oregon an opportun
ity to attend the larger and better
schools, when they can do so with
out running the expense of trans
portation too high. In fact the
act, itself, says so. It will be
perfectly proper, therefore, for
boundary boards to authorise bus
routes that lead to a large, stand
ardized high school from a com.
munity that does not have such a
school. But it Is unseemly for
large schools to compete with one
another tor pupils as some school
superintendents are doing.
We like the attitude of the Al
bany school board in this regard,
which has announced that It will
seek to meet aU commitments
placed upon it by the boundary
board but will not wage an ag
gressive campaign for more stu
dents. It will petition the boun
dary board for the establishment
of three routes, all of which are
in-undisputed Albany teritory. be
cause It must take that step in
order to bring the matter ot their
establishment before tho bound,

fends and. rivalries have develop

districts will find that they won't

To the editor:
Your editorial In regard to the
parole of Dave Hadnot is inter
esting, but it does not state all
of the facts in the case.
Dave has lived in this city for
several years, diligently engaged
in shining shoes eight hours a
day. From 5:00 a.m. until
about 8 a.m. he did Janitor work
for Hartman Brothers, the Jewel,
ers, and from 5:00 p.m. until
about 9:00 p.m. he did Janitor
work for others, all to the end
that he might maintain a home,
clothe and educate two exceeding
ly nice and intelligent daughters,
who for years have lacked a moth
ers care. His credit has been
good at the banks and Otto Hart
man told me that Dave is the
best Janitor he has ever known
and he wanted him back to work,
hence the parole to Mr. Hartman.
Dave, so far as I know, has here
tofore been a good citizen. There
is no record ot his heretofore ev
er having been in trouble.
The parol law was enacted to
meet this kind of a case. The
Constitution of this state provides
that "laws for the punishment of
crime shall be found on the prin
ciples of reformation and not of
vindictive Justice." The idea of the
parole law is to reform men and
in all cases where the Judge be
lieves that to parole a man would
result In his reformation, it is a
legal duty directed to the con
science of the Judge to grant the
parole. Hadnot was sentenced to
the penitentiary and was paroled
to an exemplary citizen, who
agreed to furnish him steady em
ployment, so that he can continue
to support and educate his family.
What, then, Mr. Editor, would you
have me do? Send him to the
penitentiary and let the taxpayers
support his family with unchris
tian charity? Let his children at
tend our schools in sorrow and
humiliation? Or, would you give
Dave a chance to make good?
Would you apply to this case the
law of Moses or the tenets of
Had I sent Dave to the peni
tentiary, he would have come out
and found no person to extend a
helping hand. He would "have
done time," and besides "he is a
You say the District Attorney's
office sought no leniency. The
fact is I twice discussed the mat
ter with Mr. Carson and he offer
ed no objections to a parole.
When I concluded to oarola nave.
Mr. Carson said: "Well, under the
circumstances I do not see how
you could do anvthin else."
This Court yet has control of
manors body. At any time he
violates the law he will be sent to
the penitentiary to do time. The
law provides for parole. I had
as much right to parole him as I
had to sentence him. It is, then,
a question of Judgment only as to
what was the best thing to do.
Should 1 practically destroy the
man in spite of his former most
reputable citizenship, or should I
give him a chance to get back?
Should I make of him a liability,
or try to make of him an asset?
I have had experience in these
cases. Whenever a white man of
importance gets into trouble the
Judge is besearched by "leading
citirens" to give the fellow a
chance. Dave is a negro, poor
and lowly, and there are only
ten negro votes in the county. If
there had been two thousand ne
gro votes in the county, every
politician in it would hare been
here pleading for Dave. But in
this Court all men are equal: the
negro, the poor and lowly white,
he without wealth or money, and
the man with wealth and friends.
I paroled Dave when no friend
