Statue Presented by Burt

In memory of his own mother, a
pioneer of Salem and a mother
whom he feels represents all those
qualities which are so happily ob
served on May 8, "Mother's" day.
A. . Phlmlster Proctor, noted
sculptor. Is the producer of the
work, a new study of the theme,
indicating the "pioneer mother"
at rest following her years ot toil
and sacrifice and Joy of giving to
the development of her sons and
daughters and to her state.
Mr. Barker tells In interesting
fashion of how he "grew up on a
farm across river from Salem, at
tended Salem schools, and grad
uated therefrom in 1889. The
next four years I spent attending
Willamette academy and Willam
He tells how he grew up with

then after law was concluded,
law being his chosen profession,
he married and for the first time
was brought into contact with an
Interest in art, that of his wife.
Hopes to Pass Along
Appreciation of Art
Through her he discovered an
other interest in life equal to the
greatest he had ever found, that
of art and sculpturing.
Mr. Barker continued In his re
marks: "Then I began to reflect. I
tried to recall my boyhood days
in faraway Oregon. I tried to
paint in Imagination what must
have bev pictured all about me.
I could recall flowers and trees
and mountains and valleys and
streams and waterfalls, sunsets,
and autumn leaves I remembered
distinctly, but not a single picture
could I recall. The sad truth was
that I had lived amid the most
beautiful of pictures and had not
seen one. Of course, I could not
Thus it is easy to see how I
chose a work of art. If the sons
and daughters of Oregon are to
learn its lesson, then it must be
where the sons and daughters
gather to learn those lessons.
It is my opinion most appro
priate that this work should be
encouraged by adding objects of
art to the campus as a part of the
tools in the laboratory of art ap
preciation. My mother endowed me with
powers which teachers trained In
to a love for beauty. My mother
pointed out the scnoolhouse with
a whip, and a flagging interest
therein was promptly flogged.
Therefore, I wish to do honor to
my mother, for without her seal
I would have fallen by the way
early in life. Accordingly, I wish
to dedicate the statue of the Pio
neer Woman of the State of Ore
gon in memory of my mother, El

Damages of $5000 are asked
from Charles Andresen ot this
city in a suit filed Friday in cir
cuit court by Ada M. Newton, ad
ministratrix of the estate ot the
late James M. Newton. Newton
was struck January 14, 1932, as
he crossed the pavement at Court
and Commercial streets here. He
died March 3, 1932, the com
plaint alleging that the accident
occasioned his death.
The plaintiff alleges Andresen
was driving more than 20 miles
an hour and was hindered in vis
ion by mud and rain on the wind
shield. The right of a pedestrian
to a traffic lane on a crossing Is
also at issue since the plaintiff
contends Andresen did not give
