The article follows:
"A health service should saie

"The public depends on the
health department to control tne

- Communicable disease is compar

'The whole-time health depart

of communicable diseases. Ma

and activities tor the prevention

"The whole-time health depart
ment Is a necessary agency la
dealing with the complex health
problems of today. It promotes
the more efficient reporting of
diseases and of dangerous condi
tions and deals efficiently with
them. The cost of the service
rendered Is remarkably low when

Benate Appears ;

Alihouca there are a number
of senators who oppose Governor
Meier in j the campaign and are
known to be 'out of sympathy
with! some of his administration
measures, there appears a tenden
cy oil the part of these legislators
to mark time until the -several
bills i emanatiujr from the execu
tlvefdeDartment fall into the hop-
ner.ii For the present, at least; it
appears as moaga toe nunw -wm

M . it.
senate will olar the second fidaie.
Senator Brown, reputed to be the
Meier whip In the senate, thus far
has remained silent and has re
fused! to give any intimation as
to the character ot administration
bills that will bo introduced in
the senate. It has been announc
ed that the two administration
measures providing for a hydro
electric commission and depart
ment jot public works will first go
Into the house.
Senator Upton has let ' it be
known that .he will not support
the bill Introduced by Senator
Bennett, providing for the filling
of Tacancies In the legislature, as
permanent legislation. He voted,
for the measure, as an emergency.
but la explaining his ballot, de
clared that he would oppose any
bill providing for appointment of
legislators by the executive de
partment, senator Upton said
such a plan would prove a drastic
Innovation in state government,
and war not In keeping with the
practice ot the last 100 years.
Benmett's bill provided that va
cancies In the legislature shall bo
filled hr appointment br the gov
ernor.j subject to confirmation by
the house in which the . vacancy
existed. It was said that other
senators would join with Upton,
and that an effort would be made
to draft a more satisfactory bill In
During the first week of senate
activities. Senator Woodward's
name! appeared on more than tfair
ty peri cent of the bills Introduced.
Senator Strayer Introduced three
bills, i ibut these were minor
amendments and were in the na
ture of remedial legislation.
Two bills were Introduced by
Senator Eddy in connection with
the campaign that Is being waged
by th City of Roseburg for the
new national soldiers home On
IT two bins were approved on
third reading in the senate. One
of these authorized county courts
to provide meeting quarters for
the auxiliaries ot veterans organ
izations, while the other authoriz
ed an appropriation of f 25,000
for legislative expenses. The
most important resolution adopt
ed by the senate authorized ap
pointment of a committee to In
vestigate the proposed state build
ing program to cost $3,000,000.
Umatilla Rapid
Memorial Passed
Among the several memorials
approved by the senate was one
urging the passage of a congres
sional bill providing for the derel
opmeat ot the Umatilla Rapids
project. This memorial previous
ly had received the support of
Governor Meier, and was stressed
in his I first message to the 1931
legislature. In line with this mem
orial. Was a report of the 1929
Interim committee favoring the
development ot the Columbia riv
er and its tributaries. Special
mention was made in this report
of the transportation benefits that
would be derived by shippers liv
ing loj the wide-open spaces of
eastern and central Oregon.
Among the outstanding public
hearings scheduled for next week
is that on Wednesday night In
connection with Senator Miller's
bill providing for
the closing of
to commercial
the Rogue river
fishing. This bill
was introduced
on the! second day of the legisla
ture and Is now in the hands ot
the flaih and game committee.
Ralph Co wglll ot Medford will re
present the game interests while
Roderick Macleay ot Weddeburn,
purry county, will appear for the
commercial fishermen. A simitar
bill was passed at the 1929 legis
lature, Ibut later was attacked by
referendum aad defeated by ! the
voters at the November election.
The joint ways and means com
mittee will swing into action Mon
day night, and it is probable that
meetings will continue until late
ut the session. Thif committee
passes on all approplratlon meas
ures. Legislative requirements at
this session aggregate more than
fg.09,09. or a alight increase
over the requirements at the 1929
session. Members ot the commit
tee said aa effort would be made
to have the appropriation bills

dratted and ready tor introdue
tion during the fourth week of
the session. At some . previous
legislative sessions these bills did
not appear until the last week
with the result that debates vir
tually were eliminated. ;
Senate is Ahead '
Of Past Progress '
While considerable more time
was required to receive the mes
sages of Governor Norblad, out
going executire, and Governor
Meier, at this legislative session
than at some previous-sessions.
the records show that the senate
was farther ahead at the time of
adjournment Thursday noon, than
at the corresponding time two
years ago. The organization haa
been completed, the committees
appointed and 21 bills had been
Introduced. Only 19 bills had
been Introduced at the time of
adjournment the first week of
the session in 1929. Because of
the belated appointment of Sena
tor C. K. Spauldlng of Salem to
succeed the late Senator Rey
nolds It was necessary tor Presi
dent Marks to revise his commit
tee appointments after the origin
al list had been announced.
Additional time was required
to hold memorial services for the
late Senator Reynolds, and ad
minister the oath to his succes
sor. Other valuable time was lost
on the opening day of the session
as the result of an address by
Senator Brown la which ho at
tacked the atate supreme court.
This address had to do with the
action of the senate caucus, which
decided that new members of the
senate would be sworn ta by the
chief Justice ot the supreme court
and not by the secretary of state.
Although ' the senate will not
reconvene until 11 a.m. Monday,
there were Indications here Sat
urday that a number of new bills
would be introduced and that sev
eral resolutions and memorials
would come up for final consider
ation. By the opening of the
third week a large number of bills
should be ready for third reading.
The wheels will then more more
swiftly and controversial meas
ures will be at Issue. Senator
Marks has stressed the necessity
ot Introducing bills as early as
possible so that the committees
may prepare their reports. A
number ot legislators have an
nounced that they will have no
bills to offer, and will content
themselves with considering the
offerings of other members.
It was said that several bills
vetoed by the late Governor Pat
terson following the close of the
1929 legislative session, would be
reported back to the senate early
next week, i Ia most Instances,
these vetoes' will be sustained.
