i I The State Library
CALLING at the state library the other day, Miss Hajr-
J riet Long, the librarian, told us ot now a leuer, naa
just come in from oat in the state asking the library; fo
send out some supplemental reading books for a group of
children, stating the people were too poor to buy books and
were" pooling their pennies, to pay me postage uu uw.
from the state library. Mis3 Long had other letters from
persons .desirous of literature and from one we recall, a
wAman. Tna.rried. onlv 21. who wanted to start a reading
! course to resume the education which was interrupted with
her withdrawal from school. . ' . , .
There is scarcely- any other institution which gets
"more mileage" out of ita dollar than the public library;
and the state library reaches those people and communities
which need library service! the most. In the last biennium
it loaned 341,395 books, making 65,603 shipments, a gain
in shipments of 16,821 and of loans of 65,540. Yet it did
all this work with less money than for the preceding bi
ennium. ! ; , ..... .
The state library needs more room, better facilities for
handling its work, more books. It also needs a reading room
ofr research where students and citizens may come and go
through library material on . special subjects. While dis
tinctly a mail order library; it is often easier and cheaper
for the state if the one to be served can come to the library
and conduct his research. As it is now he is almost an in
truder so ill-equipped is the library to serve him. j
' Realizing that economy is necessary, the library board
asks only what it deems absolutely necessary to carry on
its work during the biennium, and the request has been in
cluded in the budget submitted to the legislature. This de
partment, we believe, is; one of the few where an increase
is warranted. - 1 .
Reform Hits Corvallis
CORVALLIS is having a i hard time to tell whether it is
pure or impure. The city is rather sharply divided on
the subject. Most people! who are acquainted with the
town, both residents and occasional visitors, have thought
Jt was a pretty decent city, one where it was safe in which
to ! rear a family.! The recent bootlegger killing , and trial
drew forth evidence of the: town's law violations and some
people are all excited in the belief that the town is really
.a hell-hole of iniquity. M
Corvallis is just about like Albany,; Eugene and Salem
in these respects. The majority of its people are law-abiding
folk. Then there are those who want their likker with
out making it, so the bootlegger group comes in. This isn't
large, it doesn't need to be; but it takes care of the busi
ness, flouts the officers and gets away with it.
This fellow Mills who was killed in Corvallis was a
known bootlegger, had been arrested before Likewise in
most of our towns there are men known to be followers of
that trade. They may get by, or they may be nabbed; it
isn't an easy matter for officers to apprehend a smooth
bootlegger in any law violation. !
Corvallis may profit from the current reform wave;
and town house-cleanings are often a good thing. But with
all their vigilance there is bound to be a certain amount
of bootlegging, i gambling and other vices even in such sanc
timonious communities as we have in the valley.

. Another Thrilling Chapter
MRS. Howard his written another thrilling chapter in
the famous Bowles case in Portland. The plot thick
ens, and the mystery deepens. The tale reaches the propor
tions of a best seller. It is real enough to have come out of
a book. Ten years I from now perhaps, the names will be
changed and the narrative published in the pulpwood red
backs of the day. m- j :
, There seems to be something phoney about Mrs. How
ard's connection with the Bowles case Her photograph
shows a woman of middle-class respectability, and her
house is' likewise modest. One wonders liow she could have
become intimate with the xnadame of llLuray circus. Her
atory scarcely seemed plausible and if true was of little
consequence to the case, being all hearsay' and inadmissible
as evidence. -' , p t '
Xet there she is, stabbed and bruised, with no sign of
a weapon around. Who was her assailant and what were
his motives? Here in truth is

this did net prove satisfactory.

club from ithe start to make the
library attractive and useful to

we gave entertainments of divers
