Revelations of the Trial
THERE were some real revelations at the inquiry into the
prison management yesterday. We are referring not at
all to the testimony which was introduced nor the alleged
iacts presented, but to the delineation of the battle-lines for
the 1932 political campaign in the state of Oregon.
' The 1932 battle will be for the further vesting of control
.. . . . xi i I- e fn.. Tuliita T. Hfoioy ThilT.

wifl come in two ways: first, control of the legislature, not
through terror, as was true of the last legislature, and
through choice definitely made and announced by the legis
lative candidates. . ' .
The second move will be toward increasing the gov
ernor's domination of the state-board of control. The Meier
party will undoubtedly have a candidate for the Kay office
of treasurer; and will most certainly run a man against Hal
Hoss for secretary of state. The election of either one of
these candidates would give the governor absolute control
over the state institutions and various offices now under
the board of control. ' ... ... .'
It should not be at all surprising if Gov. Meier did not
appeal to the legislature to aivesi me wru wwuww -"
power over these institutions and to put them all under the
governor's office. ! , .
Supt. Henry Meyers of the state penitentiary was but
an incident of the trial. The prison itself was but an inci
dent. The battle was over domination : whether the governor
should reign in Oregon or whether a triumvirate board of
control should wield power. It was easily evident which side
had the sympathy of the "gallery". At every opportunity
the crowd applauded the governor. It was not a question of
facts with them, but an expression of sympathy and loyalty.
Tt is not difficult to forecast what the result of thet 1932
plebiscite will be unless there should be a marked shift in
public sentiment. This is of course easily possible, because
public fancy is decidedly fickle; and the hero of today be
comes the victim of the morrow.
It is easy also to see forming, in fact quite fully formed
now, a political organization which is building for perman
ent power. Under the astute guidance of Henry Hanzen,
backed by the Meier money and led by one as aggressive and
as naturally dominating as the governor, such a political
machine may retain the power it has already seized for a
long time to come. The moves now in the making are not
just for the authority of today, but to build control for the
indefinite future. We are not here commenting on whether
... . a a 1
this machine or any maenme is good or oaa; dut. merely
reporting what is going on before our eyes. It is a matter of
intense interest and of course of deep importance to the
welfare of the state.
Those who thought that the election of last November
was but a disturbing episode have another guess corning. It
was not 5an incident ; it was a revolution.
The Puzzle Over Education
THERE seems to be a growing appreciation of the dilem
ma in. which the hoard of riiirrier. education finds itself.
On the one hand it must cat expenses over a million dollars.
On the other hand it has before it recommendations of a
survey which if followed out in full would develop a very
costly system of higher education in Oregon. Certainly the
recommendations for fresh expenditure which the report
makes more than offsets the possibilities of economy which
otners 01 its recommendations would give. Added to these
perplexities are the protests that are coming against cer
tain of the suggestions. Friends of the university and of
higher education oppose stripping the university of the pure
sciences. The state college will certainly object to losing its
achool of. commerce, long regarded as belonging in the do
main of "practical" courses rather than in the field of arts
and letters. r .. , " I

program of the survey commission would pretty well dis
rupt higher education in Oregon. Even under one admini
stration it is doubtful if the university and state college
could function well under the plan of the commission. We
note the Baker Democrat-Herald and the Newberg Graphic
take the bull bythe horns and urge definite consolidation of
the two schools. - '
The Baker paper, which by the way is owned bv two
men, one a graduate of the
state college, had the following: , : j
There Is one thing that can be done if the resents and the
governor hay th nerre to brave, criticism by suggesting it.
This Is to consolidate the college and tbo university la to a big
- University of Oregon or Oregon State University, grring all
courses now taught at either place, with the " work concen
trated on one campus, using the other for Junior college in
. strnctlon. , ; ;
"It Is generally recognized that this should : hare been done
ln the first place. Hardly any well Informed person doubts It.
However it wasn't done with the result that we have consider
able unnecessary duplication and a great deal of destructive
.rivalry. A consolidation would unquestionably save a great
deal of money, and since we are always going to have one or
two state universities, this sum. would over the long future run
Into an enormous amount, tar greater than any present sacrifice
of buildings by such consolidation. Over a 60-vear nerlod both
campuses could be abandoned In total and one jtew one built,
with a net gain to the taxpayers. If such a course were neces
' sary,' which It la not. The state is now spending more than
93.000.600 a year on higher education, $30,00.000 in 100
. : years. : ; . r
"From the educational and tax standpoint' a consolidation
is desirable. Whether it is politically feasible we do not know
but there la a general demand for drastic redactions in edu
eational costs that' probably can be achieved in no other way.
Most anything can come out of the regents meeting neat week
-eren so radical a proposal as consolidation of the University of
Oregon and Oregon- State college. Such a plan would arouse
violent opposition among alumni of both institutions and in
Corrallis or Eugene, depending upon which town was to lose
part of its school payroll, but it would be strongly supported by
taxpayers who are not Interested in school or town rivalries
but are Immensely interested in getting the most education for
their money i .
The Newberg Graphic
would supplant both Pres.
president and establish the
. gon on the present campus of the state college, choosing
this location apparently because the survey said the nniver
aity plant would need largely to be rebuilt,
If economy is the great goal then assuredly the correct
solution would be to create1 single institution at one city
or th other. If this be not done, then it seems to us the
proper solution would be to reduce the scope of work, with
out bodily transfers of divisions or work from one school to
t the other. . i

We immediately picture our
selves in the grip of some ter
rible disease and flounder about
hopelessly. Stories of Bright'
disease and other terrifying ail
ments come to our ears. We are
almost sick from fear.
Well 'do I recall the story of a
young man: I had recommended
for entrance, at West Point. Thla
boy was the very picture of per
fect health. - Not a symptom -of
any disease or incapacity had be
ever experienced. He passed all
his entrance examinations, in
cluding the physical examination,
with' high honors.'
However, when it came to the
usual routine urine examination,
a traee of albumin was found. He
was- rejected on the grounds of
physical unfitness. This boy suf
fered all the tortures of disease
Itself because of worry.
I do not mean to say that the
presence, of albumin in the urine
is to be considered lightly and
ignored. Albumin present In the
urine constantly is, usually,
though not always, indicative of
some disease. .
This disease is usually located
in the kidneys.
However, we frequently en
counter cases where there is ab
solutely no evidence of any dis
ease in the kidneys. : Further re
peated tests of the urine show
the absence of albumin.
Again, we run across eases
where the albumin appears in the
urine . at. certain definite stated
times. This type of trouble Is de
scribed as "cyclic albuminuria."
In certain individuals who main
tained an upright position more
or less constantly, the urine
showed traces of albumin.- It is
of interest that when these indi
viduals were put to bed or the oc
cupation was changed, the arbu
mln disappeared. Some individu
als who eat a high protein diet,
particularly one consisting of
many eggs, will Invariably show
presence of albumin in the urine.

What I would like to impress
upon you Is that albumin does
not mean kidney disease in every
instance. However, it does war
rant a complete physical examin

check on your heart, kidneys,
lungs and general circulation. If
these are all found to be satis fac
tory we need not worry about
the presence of albumin.
There are many Individuals
who have albumin in their urine
all their lives. These people have
lived to a good old age without
any trace at any time of kidney

tumble into the car. The long
black shape of the Hispano-Sulza
lurched forward and backward,
turning, then slid silently away
into the night.
"Let's go in your Pord," sug
gested Barbara, nctvoualy.
Sally shook her black head de
cisively. "No," she said. "We've inter
fered enough tonight."
The Easiest Way
Barbara lit another cigarette
and began to pace back and forth
across the porch. Something with
In her urged her to tell Sally that
she knew she had acted, like a
beast. But apologies never, came
readily to Barbara's lips. Imper
ious, spoiled, headstrong, she
was, and those who inhabited her
own little world knew it and
made allowances. It had always
been so much easier to make
amends Indirectly than by direct
apology. And who was this girl,
Sally, anyway, to make Barbara
Holworthy feel like humbling
herself? Just a Florida cracker,
that was all. A little better-mannered
than most, a little more
breeding, perhaps, but a cracker
just the same. What did it matter
whether this Joan person fell in
to Mueller's hands or not? It
would be well for Dave if she did.
He'd feel badly about it for a few J
days perhaps, and tben he'd xau
back into the pleasant routine of
yachting, travelling and flying
and - would forget all about her.
Every boy had to fall in and out
of love a dozen times before he
settled down. It was a wonder
that this was the first pretty fce
that had ever attracted him.
Barbara flicked her cigarette
out onto the lawn. Talbot, too,
had been bewitched by these
girls. A fool could aee that he al
ready imagined himself head over
heels In love with Sally. Terhaps
the cruise f, the Restless had
lasted too long and Dave and Tal

looking for her, very sweet and
contrite. Barbara resolved that
she would be forgiving and never
mention this evening to him.
"Listen!" called Sally sudden
ly. "Isn't that a plane?"
From the direction of Mueller's
hangar came the distinctive drone
of an airplane engine. The two
girls rose, ran down the verandah
steps and stood on the unkempt
lawn, gazing up into the star
hung sky. The sound became
more and more distinct until at
last they could see the low-flying
plane, blotting out one star after
another as It roared over the tops
of the orange trees.
"It's Davey!" called Barbara,
-excitedly, waving up at the man
she loved, knowing as she did so
that he could not see her against
the blackness of the ground.
The plane veered, swung down
ward and hurtled over the roof of
the old house. They could see
Dave's black head peering over
the side of the cockpit.
"Go and find Joan!" shrieked
Sally, pointing toward Cathay.
Barbara waved frantically to
ward the abandoned houses. If
Dave would only fly over there
and bring Joan home they could
all get In Gerry's car and leave
thla horrible place.
The thunderlnr nlane cut a
sharp circle over the lawn, fta
wlngtlp almost flicking the kum
quaia as It heeled over in a dlxxy
bank. Once again it swept over
the heads . of the two pointing
girls. Then, with a breath-taking
zoom, it rocketed off In the di
rection of .Cathay.
Sally stood stock still, staring
at Barbara with wide-open eyes.
"That was Daye, she said

Sally turned on her heel and be

black hulk of the Ford parked at
the edge of the county road. Sud

the little car, she snapped on the
switch, raced around to its radi
ator and began to crank it fren

as Its engine . burst into action.

Jason Lee White drowning: -(Continued
Mrs. White brought with her let
ters of condolence from the people
at Fort Vancouver, among them
one from Rer. Herbert Beaver and
Jane Beaver, his wife, who visit
ed them a little later at the old
mission. - Rev. Beaver was the
chaplain . (Episcopal) at the fort
at the time.
The drowning of Jason Lee
White was in August. 1S2S. Ban
croft says he was the first white
boy born in the Oregon country,
and that his birth was in July.
1836, and that he was 11 months
old when, he was drowned. The
book of Dr. and Mrs. White, says
he was 11 months old, but that
makes his birth in September.
1837. Bancroft made a mistake
la . the year of his birth, and also
the month, without question. He
likely got the age from the White
Bancroft .says also: "On the
llth day of September, 1837, Jo
seph Beers was born, and in 1882
resided in Marlon county, the old
est American native In Oregon."
That was no doubt correct, so that
Jason Lee White must have been
born before September IS of that
year, for the Whites said in their
book that thlr child was the "first
born son of Oregon."
The Beers boy was born to Mr.
and Mrs. Alanson Beers, at the old
mission, and his coming must have
been attended by Dr. White, who
was the physician in charge
there, and of course Dr. and Mrs.
White would know it he came be
fore their own boy.
All the historians who mention
the matter aay two children came
with Dr. and Mrs. White when
they arrived with the first rein
forcement, in May, 1837, Mr. and
Mrs. Beers with three children be
ing in the same party. The
Whites brought two children, but
one of them was an adopted son.
George Staughtenburg, aged about
12 . and their first boy, Silas,
around two years old. Silas was
13 months old when they started
from Boston on July 28, 1838.
The adopted son was drowned in
the "Willamette river near the old
mission August 16. 1959, when he
was 14, and his body was not
found (by an Indian) for more
than 20 days thereafter. Let the
White book tell part of the story,
"Neither were Dr. and Mrs.
White without their personal af
flictions (they had been telling of
the death of Mrs. (Anna Maria
Pitman) Jason Lee and boy, first
white child and mother for whom
ground was opened in the Oregon
country), for there (at the old
mission) they burled George, their
adopted son. who was drowned
while attempting to cross the Wil
lamette river on horseback. The
curent was very rapid (the river
then ran where Beaver slough
Is now. east of the present chan
nel), and it is supposed he became
giddy, for he turned the horse s
head down stream, and, becoming
entangled : in the saddle, was
drowned and carried away, before
his companion, an Indian, could
"He narrowly escaped a similar
fate the day they left Havana for
New York, to start for Oregon.
He was rambling thoughtlessly
about the boat, when he accident
ally fell overboard, and was re
covered with some difficulty. He
was dear to them as aa an own
child., and they lamented their
loss with heartfelt sorrow.
'Br his side, also (in the ceme
tery for the whites at the old mis
sion), they laid their little Jason,
aa infant of 11 months, which was
likewise drowned, when Mrs.
White so miraculously escaped
with her own life, while on an
excursion down the Columbia
"It was the season that Dr.
Whitman's little daughter was
drowned in the Walla Walla, a
trlbuUry of the Columbia; and
what made it a more remarkable
cincidenee was that these two
children were the first born son
and daughter of Oregon. It was
truly a summer of singular events
the greatest revival and the
greatest number of deaths that
occurred during the same length
of time of their stay In Oregon."

There were two cemeteries at
the old mission one for the In
dians and the other for the whites.
The first grave in the one for the
whites was that opened after the
death on Tuesday, June 24, 1838,
of Mrs. Jason Lee (the first Mrs.
Lee), followed shortly by their
new born son. - Those two bodies
were removed to the Jason Lee
Cemetery in Salem. Most of the
other bodies were also taken up.
But It is not likely that the bodies
of the adopted and own son of Dr.
and Mrs. White were removed
and it is said a baby of Rev. J.
L. Parrlsh and his first wife were
never taken away.
The revivals spoken of by Dr.

ones at the old mission in the win

camp meetings at Wascopam
