State Board Retreat
THE Portland Journal, whose eminent editor is a member
of the state board of higher education, reviews the his
tory leading up to the selection of Dr.! W. J. Kerr as chan
cellor of the state educational system, Qnd concludes :
"This Is why the former plan of the- board was changed
and an Oregon man named to head the higher education sys
- tem in the state."
A splendid retreat it was, though not very glorious so
far as the state board itself is concerned. For in spite of the
fact that the choice of Dr. Kerr was most obviously correct,
it was accomplished only by a minority vote of the board,
and then only after most extraordinary pressure.
" But that retreat should be only a beginning. And our
hope is that under Chancellor Kerr's able leadership there
will be further retirement from "the! former plan of the
board". We would call attention to this; that Dr. Kerr asked
for no'subordinate "presidents"
and the board concurred. This is a great victory for efficien
cy and economy. By making the chancellor an "on-Campus"
executive, directly responsible for administration from top
tc bottom, real work will be accomplished with a minimum
of effort. Now if the board reverses itself some more and pro
ceeds to liquidate its other mistakes, progress may be made
in Oregon education.
The state has this hope that under Dr. Kerr's leadership
the board may be induced to make modifications in it3 rigid
set-up which will enable educational institutions to function.
Bennett Leaves Senate
TT7E shall meet and we shall
f T vacant chair. Only it will not be vacant. Some new man
willibe selected to fill the place of J. E Bennett, Portland's
Tasping member of the upper house of !the legislature. And
there may be some man much worse than Bennett to come
to Salem. !
Bennett was irrepressible. He was fertile in ideas, and
though they were usually wrong, Bennett was never modest
in pushing them forward. Bennett should be credited witn a
sincere desire to serve the people and nfyt the "vested inter
ests"; but a senator should have brains along with sincer
ity; and Bennett's judgment seemed grievously at fault many
times. His "manners" too were often rfritating to his col
leagues. It would not be surprising is Bennett is elected a mem
ber of the city commission of Portland. That will satisfy
him better for he can be a continuous performer in that of
fice. He will scourge the grafters and hogtie the utilities;
ahd throw plenty of sand in the gears of the municipal ma
chinery. Immunity From Abrest
PORTLAND authorities have arrested a maa described as
head of a lot of the gaming racket in that city. The mo
ment he was arrested on a minor charge the papers spill over
what they had doubtless known for a long time. One readily
draws the inference from the news story that theellow had
operated long and quite openly, apparently under protec

ator would get knocked over.
We recall also having had pointed out to us in a Portland

BITS for BREAKFAST
-By R. J. HENDRICKS-
S S "m
As promised yesterday, there
follows a story written by "Cy"
Woodworth on one of the colorful
characters of Salem's early days:
One Arm Brown came to Ore
gon in the early sixties and was a
resident for ever 30 years. He was
employed by the government as
messenger In Indian service. He
traveled around so much that It
would be difficult to name the
county that he belonged to, but
Salem claimed him as a resident.
"Everybody knew him, but no
one knew where he came from
and he never told. His left arm
had been partly severed and what
was left was carried In a silken
sling. How he lost his arm is an
other mystery that was never
solved. It is doubtful if his real
name was Brown. He signed it
O. A. Brown (O. ne) (A.-rm).
He passed for a bachelor without
relatives. He certainly must have
had a past that he was seeking to

kept trimmed daily.
"He gained his character by his

fondness was reciprocated, and he

'vulaions are ignored and not con

are regarded merely as being caused
by an "upset stomach." This atti
tude is likely to be found in the
family where others had convul
sions in childhood.
Convulsions may be traced to
various disturbances. If the child
has an "organic" cause, such as
meningitis, hemorrhage or tumor
of the brain, abscess of the brain,
or some other important disorder,
the trouble is serious and cannot
be regarded as a mild disturbance.
However, the convulsions may be
of the functional type and in that
event, unpleasant a it is, the at
tack need not cause undue alarm.
In such a case the symptoms may
be attributed to a disturbance in the
digestive tract. Aa enema will
bring speedy relief.
In other cases, the convulsions
may be brought about by the ab

form within the- body. These poi

that he would put a lady on the

in Portland where he would look
after her baggage and see that
she had a cab to take her. to her

someone going back that he would
"Brown was an expert horse
man, and it was quite a sight to
see him handle a team of horses
with his one hand, but he did it,
with the help of his knees, and
he would undertake to drive or
ride anything that could be hitch
ed up or saddled. His work called
for a lot of riding and driving,
and, no matter what the weather,
or the obstacles or the distance
he was always ready and willing.
"He would be sent to an In
dian reservation to arrest some
bad Indian. He never hesitated
but went and took the chance.
Fear was unknown to him. In
the latter part of his stay in Ore

armed, he would hunt out the fu
gitive and bring him in. Usually
he went alone. Being too small

Convulsions are sometimes en
countered in children suffering from
malnutrition. when the under
nourishment is corrected and the
child is given the proper diet and
treatment, the tendency to convul
sions disappears speedily.
Bear in mind that if your child
suffers from convulsions, it is neces
sary to have a complete physical
examination by a doctor. This ex
amination is important. Treat
ment to be of any value, can be
given only when the cause of the
convulsions is known. Remember
that if the attacks are repeated and
become more and more severe and
prolonged, the child requires care
