rating im these matters in com
parison to the rest of the state,
- here indeed was fertile ground for
the -Fund to show how much
could be accomplished in a few
hort years through a - well-organised
health program. The ex
tent to which these conditions
have been improved will be treat
ed later in separate articles; suf-
' lice it to say, the demonstration
has taken ample hold of the sit
uation. Brhool Systems Found
The excellent organization o!
both county and city school sys
tems here was another very
strong drawing card in process of
eliminating the 25 other demonstration-seekers,
as was also the
fact that official state and volun
teer organizations were working
in the county and wonld cooper
ate gladly with the health pro
gram. Particularly among the
latter were the state hoard of
health and the state tuberculosis
Still other reasons why this
county was selected included the
fact that almost the entire popu
lation is American born; nearest
to educational institutions of the
state, and the state university
medical school In Portland; then
too, Salem boasted an exceptional
medical and dental service, good
hospitalization was here and there
was opportunity for obtaining
good private medical and .dental
health work. The foundation sur
vey party was also pleased with
the diversified economic condition
in the county, with neither purely
agricultural or purely industrial
pursuits claiming the populace.
.The latter meant, of course, a
more elastic health study.
Here Than $300,000
Spent by Demonstration
When Dr. W. H. Brown, first
director of the child health work
here, arrived early in January,
1925, to set up the demonstration,
his arrival tokened beginning of
an expenditure by the Common
wealth Fund over af Ive-year per
iod of more than $300,000 for
eign money most of which has ac
tually been spent in this county.
Here was a fact-seeking founda
tion willing to sink in Marlon
- county 300,000 cool dollars to
widen and brighten health habits
and standards of the county. .
The Commonwealth Fund
alone. In otbar words, was willing
to expend in a short period al
most 60 times as much as the
county and city was spending in a
year, and to bring a health pro
gram to every part of the county
rather than to only certain parts.
This meant an average of $60,000
a year county income from New
" York City. In 1928 the Fund's
budget for carrying out its pro
ject reached the high mark of
$69,785; the previous year it was
563,585; In 1926, $67,340. The
fh'at year $46,037 was spent by
the Fund, which really included
seven months' operation, as the
full staff was not completed un.
til May, 1925. Aside from these
budgets of the demonstration
sponsors, city and county agencies
continued their financial support.
Frnitl Expend i tare Is
50,285 Tliis Year
In 1929 the Fund is spending
$5,2S5. And how is this divid
ed Just $17,099 goes into local
services; the ten members of the
- clerical staff are paid $8,000; di
rector of health education and as-
sistant director of the nnrsing
staff for field training work claim
$6,000; equipment and records
fo the year cost $8,000.
When the New York office
withdraws its support at the close
of - this Tear, it will leave Marion
county about $20,000 worth of
equipment for -which the county
will have paid nothing; for it is
the policy of the Fund to leave be
hind complete equipment and re
cords to carry on. Included in
this outlay is a fleet of eight new
light automobiles; a $250 fire
proof safe; complete files and
fireproof filing equipment; three
new typewriters: three sets ot
scales-and one portable outfit; a
health library which Is being
made as complete as possible; and
all office equipment.

Menalkas Selander, awards tor
athletics, cycling and life rating.
Luman New ot troop number 12
passed tne bird study test and was
also given star rating.
Applications for awards through
the court of honor are small so
far this fall, due largely to the
fact that courts of honor are to
be held also In Polk county. O. P.
West, scout executive, will be In
Dallas Thursday night to assist In
holding a court there, at which
more than 20 boys will appear for
awards. Scouts from Independence

"A Yes sir."
A recess was taken as the an

Continued questioning by Fitts,
who brought into the trial several
new names, indicated that he
might call rebuttal witnesses to
contradict Ziffle's testimony. He
asked the witness if he knew and
had discussed the Pantages case

Fitts turned the witness back
to Ford, who attempted to ask
him questions concerning the
promises of payment, but these
all met with state objections
witch were sustained by the court.
Mrs. Hannah Beatty, woman
physician in the police juvenile
bureau, was the next defense wit
ness. She desennea in aexau a
physical examination she made of
Miss Pringle on August 10, the
day following the alleged attack.
She testified briefly to the con
dition she found, supporting the
state's contention of assault.
Ford tried to draw from her fur
ther details of the girl's condition
in an effort to bring out evidence
damaging to the state's case. He
met a stonewall opposition of ob
jections, which Were sustained by
the court, leaving the defense
with testimony from its own wit

Ford demanded that the jury
be excused to allow for arguments
by counsel seeking permission to
question the witness further. This
wrangle ensued for halt an hour,
during which the court ruled that
the testimony sought by the' de
fense did not constitute an issue
in the case. The court therefore
barred the questioning.

(Continued from Pace 1.)
Is hastening to that point in order
to reorganize the Chinese forces.
Late dlspateb.es to the Japan
ese news agency Rengo indicated
that Soviet artillery began bom
bardment of the Chinese bank of
the Amur river on October 11, in
creasing its violence on October
13 which was the night that the
main attack was launched.
Prior to the reported attack the
Russians issued a statement de
claring Chinese aggression both
afloat and ashore in the affected
region made it necessary to take
decisive steps in reprisal. The So
viet statement reached Harbin by
way of Krarbarovsk and added
that the same punshment would
follow any future repetitions of
aggression by the Chinese.
The controversy between Rus
sia and China in Manchuria grew
out of the ousting of Russian offi
cials of the Chinese eastern rail
way by the Manchurian govern
ment. The Chinese asserted they
had taken this action because the
Russian officials were using their

Various committees of the com

Ts Outstanding Issue
While their work is not restrict
ed to prohibition enforcement,
Pollak and Chafee doubtless will
go thoroughly Into all phases of
that situation. The doings of dry
agents, tlreVoast guard and border
patrols doubtless will be scanned
with a view to ascertain how
much and often, if at all, lawless
ness has been indulged in to en-
force the Volstead act.
A. native of Rhode Island, Pro
fessor Chafee graduated from
Brown university and practiced
law for a number ot years in
Providence. In recent years he has
devoted his time to lecturing on
law and the wilting of legal and
other works, including a book on
free speech. In 192 S ho was chair
man of a committee reporting to
the federal coal commission on the
subject of coal and civil liberties.
In Court Contact
Pollak has had much contact in
the courts with matters falling
within the scope of the inquiry he
Is to make with Chafee. He acted
as counsel to the Moroland act
commissioner in New York in the
investigation of the failure ot the
City Trust company and its rela
tion to unlawful practices In the
state banking department.
The commission has yet to se
lect an expert to assist In Investi
gation on the general subject of

The two experts named today were
tne only ones selected to work
together on any one of the eleven,

STATE BOYS' SCHOOL
Saving between $40,000 and
(50,000 on the operation of the
state training sehool for boys, has
been the least important result of
the new parole system whereby
the population at the school has
been reduced from the peak num
ber, 233 in 1926 to 77, the num
ber enrolled there in September of
this year. Governor Patterson de
clared in a talk at the Kiwanis
club lnncheojo Tuesday.
The greater saving has been
in granting opportunity to the
boys paroled, to become useful cit
izens Instead of confirmed insti
tution Inmates, the governor said.
The new system has necessitated
the employment of two parole of
ficers, but the percentage failing
to make good when paroled has
been reduced from 27 to 17.5.
The financial saving, said the
governor, has been great because
