Over SSOOO Calls
Made in One Year
In 1928, the nursing staff of the
demonstration made 2.114 calls
for control and care of commun

year, the frequency of other com
municable diseases was recorded
as follows: influenza, 441; chick
en pox, 127; mumps, 18; whoop
ing cough, 15; infantile paralysis,
4; pneumonia, 46; diphtheria, 23;
smallpox, 21; typhoid, 8; tuber
culosis, 24; and malta fever, 2.
These figures do not include the
Cases from the state Institutions,
where 45 cases of influenza were
acred for by the Institution doe
tors, 11 of pneumonia; ,154 of
tuberculosis and five of malta
fever. It is improbable the low
figures reported whooping cough
and mumps, two of the minor dis
eases, account for all the cases of
such contagion in the county in
the year.

SEATTLE. Oct. 4. (AP)
Samuel Henry Jordan, who re
vealed an alleged secret marriage
to the late Mrs. Mabel Hunter
Seaborg of -Seattle and was suc
cessful in claiming her $50,000
perior court here today Jn a suit
inatltntMl hv T.lovd Hunter, brotn-
er ot the dead woman.
Hunter alleged in his complaint
that Jordan "bought bim off"
with a promise ot 18000 cash if
Hunter called off investigators
and stopped a legal fight to at
tempt to prove that Jordan as
an imposter. The estate Is sched
uled to be distributed to Jordan
in probate court Monday. Hunt
er obtained a writ ot garnishment
for $8000 against Jordan, posting
$16,500 bond as a guaranty of
gooa win.
In his complaint Hunter recited
the fact that he was bequeathed
$10,000 in his sister's will, which
item was set aside last March on
the grounds that it was made be
fore the woman' marriage to Jor
dan. The. plaintiff declared that
he now believes Jordan had no
intention of paying him the $8000,
but made the promise to prevent
further attack on the marriage
"so that the statute of limitations
might run and Jordan get the estate."

The funeral was at BJgdon'a
mortuary at 2 o'clock Monday, and
the Interment in the Warren cem
etery to the Waldo hills, and the
whole countryside was present,
besides many from Salem. The
sermon was by Rev. W. C Kaat
ner, who also presided at the fn
neral of the husband who died
November 8, 1901; 28 years ago.
The pall bearers were grand
children of the pioneer wonfan,
Russell and Mark MeCallister of
Pratnm and Salem, Lewis Pooler
of Stayton, and Archie Bowen of
Pratnm and Clifford and Dolph
Bowen of Salem.
A neighborhood quartette sang:
Horace and Jay Thompson, Mrs.
J. C. Curry and Mrs. David Ram
seyer. - Mrs. Hinges also sang.
There are 12 grandchildren and
11 great grandchildren. Mrs.
Pooler lived on the old home farm,
10 miles east of Salem, till 1910,
since which time she had resided
In Salem. Up to a tew months
ago, her memory was very dear
concerning the events of the cov
ered wagon days and the years of
pioneering when this section was
being redeemed from the Indiana
and the wilderness.
It is seldom that two people ap-
pearU tShe on i a mnsical pro-
gram are able to blend both their
personalities and their art so sat
isfy ingly as did Byron Arnold,
organist, and. William Wright,
tenor, when they appeared en the
first McDowell program for this
fall, Monday night in th resi
dence studio room of Prof, and
Mrsr T. S. Roberta.
The transition from song to or
gan- and back again was smooth
and so harmoniously correlated
that no breaks occurred each
number was a continuation of the
one before.
Mr. Arnold, originally a Salem
man Having been a student in Wil
lamette university and later an
Instructor in the department of
music in Willamette is .now f
member of the department of mu
sic In Oregon State college.
His program Monday night In
cluded a group of old masters,
then a group of contemporary
moderns and last a number by
Gullmant written. in 1895. The
program chosen developed a re
newed appreciation for the deli
cate purity of organ tones. Mr
Arnold.g Bmooth. sensitive ' touch
resulted in an unusual flow ot
music. "In Dulcl JubUo," J. S.
Bach composition dating back in
the 18th century was more the
wraith of a song than real per
formance, so sweet and light
were its notes. Even with the
deep "Marche Funebre et Chant
Seraphlque" there was still evi
dent the light, closely akin to
spiritual interpretation.
William Wright seemed to pos-
there were no gestures, no affec-
tations, but there was beauty, and
pure song sung with a singing
voice a voice which remained
clear and controlled to the end of
12 numbers.
Mr. Wright is also a Salem pro
duct, one of which it may be
justly proud even now, and from
indications, it will have an oppor
tunity to be more proud. He is a
Willamette university graduate
and is now studying and working
under Salem folk.
His voice Is surprisingly adap
table. He sang a solemn, rather
sweetly melancholy composition of
Rachmaninoff with delightful in
terpretation and sang equally as
well "The Pilot" by Protneroe
and gate. it the power and empha-
"" "
Sweet, and clear and sure he
sang his way into the heart of the
audience Monday night. Prof.
Paul Petrle accompanied Mr.
Wright and as usual made his ac
companpaniment a joy to both his
audience and his soloist.
