Decrying the tendency to bur
den statute books with too many
laws, yet advocating what he term
ed "seeded improvements" in state
government. Governor A. W. Nor
blad outlined salient points from
his forthcoming address to the
state legislature which will con
vene here in January.
Charges -on the part of the;
state to families of wards or to the
wards themselves who bare prop
erty, were advocated by the gov
ernor, who estimated that 1200
000 annually could be received
by the state from such a source.
The governor "said at least four
persons alleged to be millionaires
are now Inmates of the state asy
lum and these and hundreds sim
ilar to them should be made to
pay for the cost of their support
from the state.
An extensive building program,
to make adequate now overbur
dened buildings ot the state in
stitutions for the criminal, the in
sane, and the siek, which could
be financed through a $3,000,000
bond issue, received the gover
nor's support. He feels that sueh
an issue could well be brought
forward at a special election next
spring. The present is a good ,
time for such construction work.
Norblad said, pointing to low
retes on money and materials, and
the need of men for employment.
Senator for Every County
"The present system of appor
tionment to the houses of the leg
islature, especially to the senate,
is damnable," said the speaker.
Each county in his opinion should
have at least a senator, while the
representation tn the home should
be decided upon population In the
"Every thinking Oregonlan
must realize that Multnomah
r- county has held back Oregon's de
velopment," said Norblad. "It Is
unfair In my opinion that this
county have virtually seven out of
the 30 senators, for while the
county only has five senators. It is
Jointly represented by two others
who usually are chosen from Mult
nomah county." -
Governor Norblad was loud in
his praise of a non-partisan Ju
diciary, saying that a Judge had
no necessity for especial party af
filiation while he was on the
bench. The governor said he. had
received considerable commenda
tion for his recent appointment of
a democrat to the circuit bench in
Parole Board- Urged
The problem of pardons Is irk
some and difficult for a governor
and no matter what attitude be
takes toward the release of pris
oners, he is In for criticism, said
the speaker. He advocated the
creation by legislative enactment
of a pardon board upon whose de
cisions the governor could act, but
a board separate from the execu
tive department and free from
any insinuations that there was
collusion between It and the gov
ernor. The governor said present ad
ministration of the penitentiary
could be Improved by a further di
vision of first-termers from hard
ened criminals. "Many people
seem to have lost sight of any re
formatory measures in the prison;
they think of it solely as a place
for reform," said the governor.
Other legislation advocated by
the governor In his talk included
a uniform grading law for Oregon
